About Lisa Petrik
Since grade school, Lisa has been perfecting her skills in sales. A born entrepreneur with a passion for success, Lisa started a candy store from her locker in the 7th grade and was making hundreds in profit within the first couple weeks. A few years later when out of the country with her family, Lisa was eager and excited to bargain with shop owners and literally drew a crowd of bystanders. With a longstanding love of real estate, and a love for the city’s diverse culture and amazing architecture, Lisa joined the industry after spending fourteen years running and managing a successful newspaper publication where she sharpened her skills as an entrepreneur and a master negotiator.
Never afraid of a challenge, Lisa loves meeting new people as well as discovering great homes. Lisa upholds the highest standards of service and believes in the efficient use of time to streamline the often intricate real estate process. Lisa is known to exceed her clients’ expectations, every time. "I thrive on education and relieving my clients of their fears. I like to keep things fun. This industry shouldn’t be boring or stressful."
With a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Elmhurst College, an associates degree in air traffic control from Lewis University and a certification in psychotherapy, she is in tune with what it takes to achieve her goals. Lisa also has extensive knowledge of the city and is involved in the River North Business Association as the secretary of the executive board and co-chair of the planning and advocacy committee. She is also a development committee member of the River North Residents Association.
Energetic, resourceful, and motivated, Lisa has a successful track record in many aspects of Chicago real estate including luxury residential and multi-family investment sales. She strategically utilizes Sotheby’s International brand to extend her reach on a global level in order to market her clients’ properties both locally and internationally. This intelligent, motivated, self-starter always takes the full initiative in all that she does. “I am always focusing on the moment of now. Every day, in every way, I want to be a better version of myself. Not only for me, but for the overall good of those in my life."
