Upon graduating college in 2006, Mike Wade began his Real Estate career. Entering the business during a challenging market and at a young age, he was able to gain experience that has proven to be invaluable for his firm today. Having 12 years of experience, Mike Wade has earned a reputation as a client-first agent. Due to his hard work and relationship-first approach, repeat buyers, sellers, and referrals comprise most of his clientele. Wade has seen his career expand from first-time home-buyers and renters to working with sellers, developers, and investors in the various needs they have. He and his team continue to be in the top 1% of Illinois Realtors, with 2017 setting a new bar for his career. Wade has also been recognized as a 5 Star Premier agent based on client reviews, which document his hard work, commitment, and communication skills throughout the process.
With numerous transactions that have taken him anywhere from Lincoln Park to the West Loop and the Chicago suburbs, Wade is confident he can provide the best service, no matter the neighborhood. Wade has the experience and patience to complete the transaction in a way that leaves his clients excited and pleased with the outcome, not just an end to the process. The goal is to help the client, not just once, but to build a lifelong relationship based upon mutual trust, respect, and understanding, not just to the one ‘Deal.’
Wade graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, in 2006 with a Bachelor of Science in Management. In addition, Wade has obtained his Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource (SFR) and his Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR) certifications to expand his portfolio further and assist clients. He spends most of his free time on Lake Michigan sailing or enjoying Chicago with friends and family. He lives in River North with his wife Monica and Sloopy French Bulldog.
