Coya J. Smith, one of the leading real estate brokers in Chicago’s western suburbs, has acquired the existing RE/MAX Properties franchise in Western Springs, Ill. Smith’s return to RE/MAX, after operating her own successful independent brokerage for the last nine years, was announced by Jack Kreider, executive vice president and regional director of RE/MAX Northern Illinois.

Now, we will be focused on expanding our sales team by attracting others who want to raise their careers to that exceptional level.”
Smith has extensive plans to reinvigorate RE/MAX Properties, which she acquired from its long-time broker/owner Marilyn Kroc. RE/MAX Properties was established in 1978 in LaGrange, making it one of the first RE/MAX franchises in Illinois. An office in Western Springs was added in 1998, and…
