BrightLeaf Realty Expands Our Team Of Experts To Put Our Client’s Needs First

BrightLeaf Realty expands its team and services in their ongoing mission to bring the future of real estate to our current, and future clients.


BrightLeaf Homes made some big moves in 2018 by bringing on Jarrett Svendsen to launch the BrightLeaf Realty brokerage – read the full article about “The New Age of Real Estate” published last September – and we’re continuing to make moves to put our clients in control.


This expansion was designed to eliminate the stigma around the “agent” mentality and partner our clients with “advisors”. Advisors are here to partner with you to find the best possible living solution we can, and to do so, we needed more manpower and experience on the team. Or, even better, woman power.

"We knew that in order to deliver the BrightLeaf experience to our Realty clients we needed some experienced and dynamic individuals that would challenge the status quo and help us get to the next level as a brokerage."
- Rick Thompson, Owner 

As we networked across the ‘burbs in Chicagoland we connected with a couple of outstanding women whose values and drive aligned with ours and who could bring immeasurable value to our clients as they venture through their new home journey.


Welcome, Heather Kinealy and Stephanie Mead. Heather is a former agent from Baird & Warner and Stephanie comes to us from RedFin. Along with their "client first" mentality, we've added a menu of new personalized services. These services are designed to help your home sell more quickly, increase its value, and leave you stress-free. As part of our free consultative approach, we will advise you as to what could help your home list higher, and we will coordinate all aspects of the recommended service.

 "The skills, experience, and presence that these two ladies bring to the team is astounding and overshadowed only by the "client first" mentality that drives them."
- Jarrett Svendsen, Managing Broker
