Residential Real Estate, Housing Market, Luxury Real Estate

Chicago’s busiest residential realtors pulled in more than a third of their $2.72 billion of sales in the past 12 months from three North Side postal codes that encompass the city’s most affluent areas.

The Lowe Group, the Laricy Team and ESW Chicago, the top three groups on TRD’s recent residential broker ranking, were also prominent in ZIP code 60614, which spans Park West, Ranch Triangle, Old Town and West DePaul as well as Lincoln Park, home to city’s two priciest properties. Of the 338 homes sold in the area, or 16 percent of the citywide tally, the three worked on 102 of them.
