Vanderbilt, 31, was recently recognized by the Chicago Association of Realtors® as one of its 2012 Top Producers. He joined the RE/MAX Premier Properties team in March.
“This is definitely the right place for me to take my real estate career to the next level,” said Vanderbilt. “It provides the visibility and recognition of a great national brand, and I can see already what a plus it is to work with Janice Corley and the entire RE/MAX Premier Properties group.”
A native of Chicago’s Galewood neighborhood, where he still resides, Vanderbilt has developed a career with a dual focus over the last 12 years. He assists families that are buying or selling their own residence, and he also works closely with investors who purchase, rehab and resell residential and commercial buildings, especially distressed properties.
“I particularly love working with first-time buyers, helping them achieve the long-time goal of home ownership. It’s a great feeling to do that,” he said. “At the same time, the work with investors is fascinating. It’s fast paced and takes me into communities all across the metro Chicago real estate market.”
As the real estate market continues its current rebound, Vanderbilt hopes to expand into the area of new home development.
“We are teeing up several projects at this point,” he said. “The credibility and resources that RE/MAX offers should help us move ahead at top speed.”
