Here are your Illinois Real Estate Magazine Awards winners from 2021



On Thursday evening, July 22, over 400 real estate professionals from across the Chicago metro area gathered at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare to participate in the 2nd Annual Illinois Real Estate Journal Awards. And, of course, there was reason to celebrate almost a year and a half after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic that swept the global economy, allowing many of the event’s attendees to reconnect in person for the first time in months. …

This year’s awards have been split into 34 categories with multiple subcategories ranging from notable deals, innovative designs, and even COVID-related awards. While the commercial real estate market experienced a downturn during the pandemic, the economy is recovering rapidly and optimism remains high for the rest of the year.

We would like to thank all the businesses and professionals who have submitted nominations for this year’s award, and sincerely congratulate all the winners. Until next year’s awards are presented, please keep an eye on the various panel events and mixers planned the rest of the year on our website to stay in touch with other industry professionals and keep abreast of the latest trends and news.
