Be All the Chicago Real Estate Agent You Can Be

May 22, 2012

While there’s only so much you can do as a real estate professional to change the state of the industry, you can always improve upon yourself. There’s a contest going on right now that will help licensed agents and brokers do just that, and if any of the winners are Chicago real estate pros, they won’t have far to go to enjoy the prize.

Chicago-based is hosting its first-ever Agent Makeover Sweepstakes, in which five real estate agents will be chosen at random to win an all-expense-paid, two-night trip to Chicago.

The prize includes a full work-up, including business coaching, online marketing training, a personal-style makeover and a photo shoot.

The contest was created in response to some of the difficulties the industry has faced over the past few years. Homeowners and sellers are not the only ones feeling the effects of the recession, so are the 500,000 U.S. real estate agents and brokers. The National Association of Realtors, Illinois Association of Realtors and Chicago Association of Realtors each have reported a more than 25 percent decrease in membership since the peak of the housing bubble in 2006.

“By providing digital marketing coaching and style makeovers, wants to give the winning agents tools to help rebuild their business and jumpstart this next era for the real estate industry,” said Mark Tepper of

The five winners of the 2012 Agent Makeover Sweepstakes will be flown to Chicago from September 12-14, 2012, where they will stay in a luxurious hotel off Chicago’s Magnificent Mile and receive:

*Expert coaching from key local industry leaders on the best real estate-specific social media practices, SEO and online marketing techniques.

*Full makeover, including hair, makeup and pampering at an esteemed Chicago salon.

*Wardrobe consultation and a new outfit fr0m a leading national department store.

*Networking dinner on September 13.

*Professional photo session.

“Our Agent Makeover Sweepstakes will give the winning agents the opportunity to improve their business in a way that is fun and engaging, and to enjoy some rejuvenating time away in our hometown,” said Tepper. “When they return back to work, we hope they will take with them the valuable knowledge and tools to take their business to the next level.”

The contest is open to all licensed real estate agents and brokers through August 10. You can enter twice to win:
