I am honored to open this office in Geneva and serve the Tri-City-area that has become my home. I love the pleasant mingling that exists between the Batavia, Geneva and St. Charles communities and the plethora of activities that are available. We look forward to becoming immersed in the communities here and supporting them with our knowledge, commitment, drive and friendship. We recognize that no matter the market, people will always have important reasons to move. Our goal is to always help our clients along their real estate journey and be their advocate from start to finish.”Samantha  Bauman and Raul Delgado of The Move Smarter Team at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago open office in Geneva, Illinois.

“Samantha and I love that we can go into a home and really have a conversation with people about life and why the client needs to buy or sell.  At the end of the day for us, what moves us, what drives us, what truly inspires us to achieve unprecedented success for our clients is their "Why".  I think clients who work with us feel that right away and it is what makes us authentic. Samantha and I love the opportunities that the Tri-City-area presents. We both come from a hospitality background, so our drive to serve and work ethic are very strong. As everyone knows, real estate is a local business and we feel that to be successful in a community, you really must be part of it. Now, with the office presence in Geneva and Samantha living in Batavia, we are committed to these communities and are excited to become an integral part of them,” said Delgado.

Pasquesi said, “Samantha and Raul have been exceptional agents in our Wheaton office, and we are truly delighted to see them spread their wings and expand to Geneva. It is the perfect fit for them as brokers, and for us as a company. We wish them tremendous success in this new venture and are here to support them in any way we can.”

Samantha Bauman of The Move Smarter Team at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago in her new office at 321 Franklin Street in Geneva, IllinoisBauman and Delgado became partners in 2021 and never looked back. That year the team received the Chairman’s Circle Platinum Award which placed them among the top 1% of brokers in the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices national network. As The Move Smarter Team expands their presence to Geneva, the team will now be able to better serve communities further west of Wheaton including Geneva, Batavia, St. Charles, West Chicago, North Aurora, Aurora, Sugar Grove and Elburn. The Geneva office is open by appointment and is supported by the BHHS Chicago Wheaton office where Samantha and Raul are top producing agents.

Samantha has been a broker with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Wheaton office for almost seven years and prior to that worked in the hospitality industry in catering and event planning for more than 10 years. Just recently, Samantha and her two children moved from Wheaton to Batavia, which created the spark to open an office in Geneva. She has played a big role in the Wheaton community for many years, serving on the board of the DuPage County Historical Museum Foundation and as an active member of the Wheaton Chamber, and she looks forward to her next chapter in her new hometown.

Previously, Delgado was General Manager of Bon Appetit Management Company that runs all the food operations for Wheaton College. While there, he hired Bauman as his Director of Catering. They spoke a common language, shared a relentless passion for serving people and strived to be different and better to wow clients, an approach that led Wheaton College to be ranked the #1 college dining program in the country by the Princeton Review. Results like that have followed Delgado and Bauman into their real estate careers. A Wheaton resident, Raul was born and raised in Flossmoor. He is an active member of the Wheaton Chamber and the Wheaton Lion’s Club. He has a daughter and two stepsons, all in college.
