My name is Holly Danielson Connors and I have had the privilege of calling myself one of the founding members of the @properties organization, having joined the brokerage in 2003. During my tenure, I have established a reputation for high levels of service, integrity and diligence that have earned me a place among Chicagolands top residential Realtors®, and helped propel @properties to its position as the leading real estate brokerage in Chicago.
My dedication to your satisfaction is met by my exceptional skills as a negotiator and coordinator throughout the transaction. Acting as your liaison within the marketplace, I can align you with an extensive network of esteemed industry professionals, such as contractors, attorneys, inspectors, and mortgage brokers. Building my relationships on the foundations of trust and respect, my client-oriented philosophy is translated throughout every deal. My enthusiasm and appreciation for the Real Estate Industry is met with an aggressive work ethic on behalf of my clientele. As your advocate, it is my main priority to meet all of your goals as efficiently as possible.
In 2013, I sold over $20 million in North West Suburban residential real estate with a boastful average market time of 54 days, and exceptional list price to sales price ratio of 94.5%. I'm beating the market by 120 days of market time, and more than 5% better than my competition.
My energy and enthusiasm have been recognized through several awards, including Chicago's Woman of the Year (2004), Rookie of the Year (2003), and Best Testimonial (2006), Most Outstanding Achievement (2012). I'm also recognized by my clients, whose appreciation have led to my business being based almost entirely upon referrals. Thanks to my incredible reputation within the industry, I have created a valuable network of dedicated clientele who praise my practice endlessly.
I'm a master of the luxury home marketplace, and have extensive experience within new construction and development environments. From first-time buyers to real estate developers, my clients are as diverse as the properties I represent. I leverage @properties’ comprehensive blend of state-of-the art online and off-line marketing practices, and maintain close contact with my clients. Whether I'm working with sellers to prepare their home for top profitability, establishing personalized criteria for buyers, or helping to navigate the areas vast array of well-known award winning schools, I lend an informed perspective.
My extensive knowledge of the communities I serve makes me a strong asset. From commute times and trains schedules to schools and local parks my knowledge base is extremely helpful in any home search.
My dedication extends to the community. Aside from my involvement with local organizations, I have been named “Woman of The Year” by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I was the chairperson for the society’s annual ball, and I'm actively involved with many children's organizations. I'm also a member of the Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce.
I don't just work in the Northwest Suburbs, I live in the Pioneer Park neighborhood of Arlington Heights with my husband, Steve, and our two children, Emma and Brady.
I'm looking forward to helping you.

"Holly is an extremely knowledgeable, patient, and hard-working agent. She took us to countless homes, was always upfront about the pros and cons of each, and negotiated hard for us. I highly recommend using Holly to find your house."
"Holly Connors not only does a fantastic job of pricing, marketing and negotiating a deal, she also thinks outside of the box to develop creative solutions to get the deal done. In our case, Holly sought out temporary housing options for our potential tenants to stay between their lease end date and our availability date. She showed a commitment to find a solution for both parties. We are happy to report that the efforts that Holly put forth led to a deal at list!"
"Holly is an exceptional real estate broker. She made the process very easy on us and her response time always exceeded our expectations. She is direct, knowledgeable and is always looking out for her clients. She caught a few issues for us that we really did not even notice and would have slipped by, if she wasn't so detailed oriented. I would highly recommend her to anyone that asked or inquired."
"Holly was a true professional in her work and she would be right upfront with her opinions. She was always willing to help her in our search and abide by all our constraints. She took time initially to understand our need so as to filter the choices and she would do her due diligence on our selection even before we stepped in the house to pinpoint pros and cons. I would truly recommend her to others."
"Holly was a balance of professional and approachable. She made the home selling process easy as can be. I appreciated her honesty, expedience, and accessibility. She definitely knows her craft and would be an excellent agent for anyone looking to buy or sell a home. I would strongly recommend her to anyone in the real estate market."
"Holly is very dedicated to her clients. Her wealth of knowledge regarding schools, home values, locations, and the overall market made our home search much easier. She was available to show us many properties the first day they went on the market. We are very pleased with her services and highly recommend her!"
"Holly was truly a pleasure to work with. She often pointed out concerning issues with homes that my husband and I were oblivious too. She was super responsive to every call and email (I do wonder how she is able to maintain a personal life!) and really held our hands through the entire process. She helped us find a house we love in a difficult seller's market."
