Anne Rosen didn’t always dream of a career in real estate and when the opportunity arrived she entered at a time that many view as the worst economic time in recent memory. While many in the industry talked about “how terrible the market is” and how “buyers won’t get off the fence", and how “sellers just aren’t realistic", Anne hadn’t experienced the heyday.
For some, “been there, done that” is an expression. For Anne, it is the absolute truth. She was a world traveler at the age of 4, living in Germany and The Netherlands as her Dad served our country as a US Army Officer. Her experience living in various communities around the country and the world created the foundation for Anne’s patience for others’ needs and ability to appreciate individual differences.
Anne has been a buyer and a seller and brings that understanding to each client transaction. The process is the same each time – and that is where the similarity ends. Her ability to personalize each experience is what sets Anne apart from other agents. Her clients and REALTOR® peers agree. She is a great listener and takes pride in her strong follow up and follow through skills.
Her previous career in the hospitality industry mirrors what real estate is all about. Relationships and service.
Anne owns a condo in a building that was once the YMCA hotel in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood. It has seen quite a bit of history and has many stories to tell….not unlike Anne herself! She is always excited every March when her Kansas Jayhawks are part of the “Madness” of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.
Anne’s passion for fitness, nutrition, and health ground her and give her the energy she needs to focus on her clients.
"My wife and I contracted with Anne Rosen of Keller Williams Preferred Realty in the Spring of 2014 on the sale of our rental property in Chicago. Our situation was somewhat unique and a little nerve racking due to the fact that we reside out of state and that all communications with her would be through either telephone or email. Those concerns went unfounded due to her ownership, professionalism and commitment to ensuring the process proceeded smoothly for us from beginning to end. 2 things were particularly impressing about our experience with Ms. Rosen: the careful analysis of the market she provide us with at the outset so we positioned the property most effectively to sell and second was how adept she was in working with our tenant to ensure the showings proceeded without incident - a process made all the more challenging due to the individual's schedule and dog. The regular feedback she provided to us throughout the entire several-month process from posting to closing went withou"

"Anne was the listing broker for our South Loop condominium in the summer of 2014. We were particularly impressed by three aspects of her marketing/selling strategy: 1. She did very thorough research to determine the appropriate listing price for our apartment and patiently answered all our questions. 2. She worked with us to ensure that our condo looked its best and arranged for excellent photography to attractively portray our apartment on her firm's website. 3. And last but not least, when a well-qualified competitive bid came in, her recommended negotiating strategy resulted in a prompt sale at an excellent price. She was a pleasure to work with."
