FOUNDING THE MIKE & JEN TEAM
Mike Hulett and Jennifer Liu have been working together since 2004 and have sold in excess of $300M in real estate. They were former business partners and owners of the boutique River North brokerage firm, Atland Realty LLC. The firm was highly diverse operating in many aspects of Chicago real estate: all aspects of residential sales including new construction, buyers, and sellers; commercial sales and leasing; industrial sales; land acquisition; and multi-family investment. In 2008 Jennifer and Mike made the decision to join Jameson Sothebys and re-direct the team’s focus to their core business specialty: residential sales. This includes individual buyers & sellers, multi-family investment properties, as well as builder representation and the development of new construction communities.
While their experience brings critical value to their clientele, Jennifer and Mike feel the most value they bring is in their no nonsense commitment to their clients and long term approach to the industry. They receive over 90% of their business by way of referral. This approach can only succeed by keeping the focus on the client. As much as they love the properties, exciting new listings, and the best architecture Chicago has to offer, their true passion is for the people they work with.
