About Santiago

I hope this finds you well.


Allow me, Santiago Valdez, to introduce myself—a luxury broker with a passion for building meaningful connections and achieving outstanding results.


Originally from the beautiful city of Arequipa, Peru, I have had the privilege of experiencing diverse cultures and perspectives throughout my life. From serving as an M1A1 Abrams tank driver and loader in the United States Army to residing in Germany, Peru, and the United States, my journey has shaped me into the dedicated and diligent professional I am today.


Alongside my partner, Elizabeth Pyle, I have ventured into investment opportunities, owning and managing over 30 rental units. This experience has provided me with invaluable insights into the intricacies of the real estate market and a deep understanding of the investment side of the industry.


Since embarking on my real estate career in 2004, my focus has always been on building strong relationships with clients. My unwavering commitment to their needs and genuine care for people have propelled me to become a top-ranked broker, recognized by organizations such as the Chicago Association of Realtors and RealTrends.


What sets me apart is my drive and dedication and my ability to craft tailored solutions that positively impact the lives of my clients. Drawing upon experience and market research, I deliver results that exceed expectations. Whether implementing proven strategies or thinking creatively outside the box, I take pride in executing plans flawlessly.


In 2012, Elizabeth and I co-founded the nationally ranked RELUX Group, where personal growth is a top priority for each member. Our team adopts a relationship-based approach, relying on facts, logic, and experience to guide our clients' real estate journeys. We are proud to consistently rank in the top 1% of all teams in Chicago, recognized by the Chicago Association of Realtors.


When I'm not immersed in real estate, I find inspiration in my daughter, Cecilia Valdez. I value continuous learning, finding comfort in reading, exploring various forms of art, and embracing new adventures through travel.


I invite you to join me in a collaborative effort. Together, we can create extraordinary experiences and forge lasting connections. Your work with me and your referrals are invaluable, and I am committed to reciprocating that trust by delivering exceptional service and unparalleled results.


I look forward to the opportunity of working together and elevating the luxury real estate experience.


Warm regards,


Santiago Valdez
