Real Estate Broker

Get to Know Me

Van Ann Kim is a top real estate broker with Compass. She is an expert of the real estate market with over 15 years of experience and has built her business almost entirely through the recommendations of her satisfied clients. Van Ann possesses an acute knowledge of Chicago’s Northwest Suburban market. Her commitment is unrivaled amongst her peers where she sets herself apart by demonstrating professionalism, resourcefulness, and dedication on every transaction.
Van Ann's attention to detail and organizational abilities were developed at an early age. She earned an Engineering degree from University of Illinois Chicago and worked for 10 years as a Project Manager for Ameritech/AT&T. These skills provide Van Ann a competitive edge in the marketplace where she formulates a comprehensive plan to help her clients accomplish their goals. She believes 3 major areas must be achieved to have success.


First is Staging – What clients have discovered, especially those who have unsuccessfully listed with other agents, is how much staging makes a difference in the ultimate sale of their home. Van Ann impresses her clients through her knowledge of trends in home décor, her attention to detail, and the proper use of a professional decorator. This is why Van Ann has the reputation of being able to sell homes that other agents could not.

Second is Knowledge of the Market – Van Ann has raised 3 children from grade school to college in her market area and has been part of the community for almost three decades. She understands the market and knows why a similar home half a mile away may be priced vastly differently.

Third is Negotiation and Closing – Buying or selling a home is probably one of the most important decisions anyone can make. Van Ann never forgets how important it is for each of her clients. As she puts it “I pride myself in fighting for every dollar for my clients and paying meticulous attention to the details to ensure success on every completed transaction.”

From Multi-Million Dollar Estate Homes to Quaint Cottages and everything else in between, Van Ann's results speak for themselves. Van Ann is happy to provide you with a list of her past clients and encourages anyone to contact them. Van Ann puts it best when she says “My proudest achievement is the satisfaction of my past clients, especially those who switched from another agent".
