$600 MILLION IN CLOSED REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS 

DECEMBER 2015 OWEN LISTS AND SELLS HIGHEST PRICED SINGLE FAMILY HOME EVER IN CHICAGO

AUGUST 2015 OWEN LISTS AND SELLS HIGHEST PRICED CONDOMINIUM  OF THE YEAR IN CHICAGO

FEBRUARY 2016 OWEN SELLS ANOTHER RECORD SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENCE

 OWEN RECEIVES HIGHEST PLATINUM AWARD FOR SALES VOLUME FROM CHICAGO ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS



    Janet Owen has been the top producer for the last twenty consecutive years and is in the top one half of 1% in the entire city of Chicago every year.  Her approach to sales is upscale, energetic, effective and results driven.  She has chosen to sell as an individual broker rather than form a team in order to give her clients and their homes the individual service and attention they deserve.  Owen specializes in the Gold Coast, Lincoln Park, DePaul and Michigan Avenue/Streeterville neighborhoods, and she has sold over $600 million in residential single family homes, condominiums and cooperatives. 

    Owen has broken several Chicago real estate records.  
    She sold the highest Lincoln Park single family home ever in the MLS with an asking price of $10 Million (breaking her own record of $8.5 Million) and sold the highest Gold Coast single family home since 2008 with an asking price of $7.85 Million (breaking her own record of $6.8 Million).  She recently sold the Penthouse at 189 East Lake Shore for a record $10,375,000 (August 2015) and broker her own record yet again by selling 1955 North Burling for $13,345,372, the highest single family home ever in the MLS in Chicago.  Owen 
    continues to exceed all expectations.
