Knowledgeable. Trustworthy. Analytical. Dedicated. These are just a few words clients have used to describe Holly Priestley. With a degree in architecture and a background in interior design, real estate was a natural progression in her career.
Holly’s signature drive and solid work ethic pushed her forward quickly in her career, from starting at Chicago Tribune's For Sale by Owner in 2010 to joining @properties (Chicagoland #1 real estate brokerage) in 2013 as an accredited Real Estate Negotiation Expert (RENE) and Certification & Pricing Strategies Advisor (PSA Certification). In 2018, Holly sold more than $10 million in real estate, earning her place in @properties’ Road to Rolex program. Holly is an @properties Top Producer, a Zillow 5 Star Agent, and has been named Chicago Agent Magazine's Who's Who in residential real estate.
Spend one minute with Holly and you’ll find her love of homes, architecture, and design infectious. She has manifested this passion into productivity, rolling out the red carpet for her clients and covering the technicalities of pricing, timing, and overall process, just as easily as giving design advice to buyers or staging a home to sell.
As part of GetBurbed, Holly joins a team with over 20 years of experience representing buyers and sellers from the city to the suburbs. With over half a billion sold lifetime, Holly and the GetBurbed team are proven experts in Northwest Suburban Real Estate. Living and working in the ‘burbs, Holly has an insider’s knowledge of details like school info, walkability, blocks that flood, and which areas have better resale than others, as well as an expansive network of professionals, from contacts for zoning permits to carpenters to interior decorators.
Holly does not subscribe to the one-size-fits-all approach to real estate, instead establishing personalized criteria for each buyer and researching the market to help sellers position their homes for top profitability. She has a strategy for every obstacle, providing clients with all the details they need to make the right decision for them, be it in the city or suburbs.
Holly is a fierce advocate for local business: a member of her local Chamber of Commerce, as well as Mainstreet Merchants, and the Zoning Board of Appeals.
