Valerie Pondel

Position: Real Estate Consultant

Areas of Expertise: First Time Buyer, Leasing, Commercial Leasing


What’s the one thing you should know about my passion for real estate? The day I passed my broker exam, I cried (more than once). It’s a little embarrassing to admit this, but it’s true! Helping people with their real estate needs is what I’ve always wanted to do. And I’m so honored and excited to be doing it! (especially with the coolest kids on the block at NCG)

Prior to obtaining my broker license, I had been in the real estate industry for six years working in both commercial and residential property management and leasing. I helped over a thousand renters find their ideal apartment and managed over 600 units across the city. I was responsible for the happiness of our tenants, and I’m proud to say that it was also my personal mission. After years of experience, I decided it was time for the next step - starting my own career in real estate.

I am a true Chicago native having lived and worked here my entire life. I’ve resided in Lincoln Park, River North and now West Town (in my new condo, yay!). I know Chicago neighborhoods well, and can’t wait to help you find the perfect place with your next move.

Some fun stuff about me - I have two cats (and looking to add a dog in the near future), I’m into cooking and entertaining and I practice yoga and run to keep my energy high.

Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer, a seasoned investor, or just looking for that ideal apartment, I promise to give you the attention and care that you deserve. I’m on your team!
