As a Chicago native with 20 years' real estate experience, Robin Allotta is equal parts savvy, successful broker and down-to-earth local. Clients praise her all-encompassing market knowledge and indispensable network.

Robin goes to great lengths to make sure buyers and sellers are well-informed and comfortable with every step of the process, and she excels at taming even the most complicated deals.
More than just a career, real estate has been Robin's passion since the moment she bought her first investment property at 19 years old. To make that daunting goal a reality, she worked two jobs throughout high school and college, and she has put that same drive and hustle to work for her clients throughout her career. Robin debuted in the business with Rookie of the Year honors, and she's earned annual Top Producer awards every year since bolstered her multiple professional certifications.

Working with Robin has always been a great experience! I have purchased 3 properties with her - each one to support a new "life stage". She has a great eye for detail; and she really made the effort to understand my changing needs, priorities, and preferences. She had great knowledge of the areas I was looking in and an ability to think "outside the box" to help me reach my end goals. She's honest, aggressive (when appropriate), and resourceful.

Robin is simply the best. She helped me sell my condo last year and was incredible to work with. Robin took charge from day one and did a great job not only managing the process but my expectations along the way. I have already recommended Robin to all my friends - you are in good hands with her!

Robin was fabulous to work with. She is a true professional with a personal touch. Her promptness in returning calls, in following thru with what she said she would do, in her knowledge of the marketplace, in managing expectations all added up to making the sale of my home perfect. It was a pleasure to work with her and I would recommend her with the highest consideration possible.

I have worked with Robin since 2008. She has helped me rent out my Chicago condo while I lived abroad for several years. Her professionalism, responsiveness, and trustworthiness had made this process smooth and painless (which is not the easiest to do with an 8 hour+ time difference)! Robin and her staff also helped me sell my condo this year. I was appreciative of the dedication and hard work that went into selling my place in a challenging sellers market. I would recommended Robin and her team without hesitation.

I really can't say enough good things about Robin! As a first time home buyer I had so many questions; Robin was incredibly patient and responded professionally to every one of my concerns throughout the process. We bought a foreclosure, so there were quite a few hoops to jump through in order to make the deal happen. Robin was there every step of the way, and thanks to her we are now living in our dream !

I have worked with Robin for many years. Robin helped me purchase my first condo in '06. She was excellent in helping me find a location in exact location that I desired and negotiated with the seller to get the property at the price point I needed. Several years later she helped me to rent that same property when I moved abroad and then eventually sell that property. In fact, she was able to secure me a buyer after less than 7 days of having listed my property. I was out of the country when the condo closed but Robin put me at ease and was able to walk me through the process of 'power of attorney" and we closed without a hitch! In 2012, when my family relocated back to Chicago, Robin was able to help us purchase a home in the Edison Park area. She put us in contact with a great mortgage consulted, Mark Rutkowski, who was able to pre-qualify us for a mortgage. Knowing we wanted to live in that area and our budget, Robin put together a list of homes on the market in the area. Robin was so flexible and patient as we looked at several houses more than one time. After only a few weeks of looking we found our home and Robin was amazing at helping us place the perfect offer. Again, Robin was there every step of the way during the process. We can't thank or recommend her enough!
