For more than 20 years, Berkshire Hathaway’s Diana Ivas has sold more than 1,700 homes in Hinsdale and its surrounding communities. She credits much of her success to her husband Chuck Ivas, who is her partner in business and in life. They are both 30-year residents of Hinsdale, embedding them in the fabric of the community. “We easily play off each other’s strengths,” says Diana. “I focus more on the marketing and management of our business, while Chuck oversees the financial and administrative tasks. We’re well matched.” The duo complements each other in additional ways as well. Diana draws largely on her background as an accomplished and passionate high school teacher when advising clients, and Chuck leverages his many years as a decorating contractor to help clients visualize home improvement outcomes before the work even starts. When it comes to client retention, no other realtor tops the Ivas Team with more than 60 percent of their business coming from repeat clients and referrals. They also pride themselves on the art of follow-through for both buyers and sellers. “Our client loyalty is due in large part to the connection we have with our clients and our commitment to follow up,” she explains. “We intensely assess the needs of our buyers and sellers, and then using a team approach we can walk smoothly through the transactional processes.”
Diana and Chuck Ivas are with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, KoenigRubloff, located at 35 S. Washington Street in Hinsdale, 630-325-5555, [email protected].
