About Shahid Rivera

Born in Chicago but raised in Mexico, I was able to travel between countries and study in both. I started my education in the US but returned to Mexico where I graduated high school. I moved back to Chicago about 8 years ago, where I earned a bachelors degree at Lewis University. I double majored in Marketing and International Business. My immediate family still resides in San Luis Potosi, Mexico where I visit often.

Prior to real estate, I worked in different industries such as retail, banking, and logistics. I wanted to find an industry where my passion for customer service and sales was geared towards the things I loved such as living in the city, interior design, and architecture. For the past 3 years, I have worked in leasing and property management. I worked at 2 new construction buildings and leased up both properties to full occupancy. I found a passion for real estate from getting to know people, learning each client’s unique story and how I would be able to help them find their ideal home.

I enjoy cooking and eating authentic food and exploring the diverse neighborhoods of Chicago. In the Summer you can find me at any one of Chicago’s many street fests. Volleyball is one of my favorite sports to both play and watch.
