@properties, the largest independent real estate brokerage firm in Chicagoland, today announced that it has hired Rebecca Thomson as vice president of agent development. Company co-founders Thaddeus Wong and Michael Golden made the announcement.
Thomson, 29, comes to @properties from Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty, where she was a senior associate. She brings eight years of experience in residential real estate sales and extensive involvement in the industry.
Thomson was recently named to the National Association of REALTORS® “30 Under 30” list and served as president of the Chicago Women’s Council of REALTORS®. Thomson also currently sits on the board of directors for the Chicago Association of REALTORS® and chairs the Illinois Association of REALTORS’® Young Professionals Network (YPN).
At @properties, Thomson will be responsible for the creation and implementation of educational, training, and business-development initiatives for @properties’ more than 1,300 brokers in the city, surrounding suburbs and Southwest Michigan. Additionally, Thomson will serve as a performance coach to @properties agents, meeting with brokers regularly to help them plan and execute their business goals.
“A huge part of @properties’ value to brokers is that we provide the programs and pathways for them to grow their brand and their business,” said @properties co-founder Thaddeus Wong. “Rebecca is a skilled and accomplished REALTOR, and has demonstrated great leadership in the industry. She’s the ideal candidate for this position.”
“I was attracted to @properties because of its unique culture and the exciting opportunities it holds for my real estate career,” said Thomson. “This position presented the perfect opportunity to get into management with a company that empowers agents to promote their own brand and think differently.”
A graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Thomson has a bachelor’s degree in English. Outside of real estate, she is actively involved with the community, serving on boards for both the Union League Club of Chicago and Step Up Women’s Network, which provides after-school and mentoring programs for teenage girls in underserved city neighborhoods.
