About Kate Samuelson
Kate is thrilled to join Luxury Living and excited to continue carving out her real estate niche in Chicago with this premier organization! With a long and successful career in catering and events at Navy Pier under her belt, Kate’s segue into real estate was a seamless transition. “My job in catering and hospitality was, in fact, very similar to being a realtor,” she says. “Same skill set. Communication is the biggest component.” Kate particularly enjoys working with rental properties as she is able to put her multi-tasking skills to use in the fast-paced environment she thrives in.
Known as a “Wikipedia of Chicago neighborhoods,” by her clients, Kate learned about the Chicago market while living and walking everywhere from Lincoln Park to the Southport Corridor. “What I love most about Chicago is that a car is not a necessity. Walking is not only great exercise – it’s often much quicker running errands on foot than driving.”
Kate currently lives in the Lincoln Square area and raised her 2 boys (Kip- 27, Konnor – 19) in Lakeview. Her clients can trust her for recommendations of exceptional restaurants, food stands, museums, parks, and kid-friendly activities.
Kate’s clients recognize her can-do attitude, expertise, and transparency and appreciate her no-nonsense attitude when it comes to closing deals. In her spare time, she loves to read, listen to music, go for long walks with friends, hang at the beach, and spend time with her family.
