Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group logoCHICAGO, IL - Residential real estate broker Janet Owen of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group’s Michigan Avenue office, has closed the highest single-family home sale in Chicago within the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) in three years with an $11,900,000 sale at 1950 Burling Street in Chicago.* The previous single-family home sale above $11 million within the MLS was also a sale on Burling Street and was also represented by Janet Owen at 1955 Burling Street in 2015, which sold for over $13 million.*

“This is such a memorable day, closing on this beautiful residence and estate size grounds for just under $12 million,” Janet Owen said Owen. She continued, “It’s not surprising that a home of this caliber would catch the eye of discerning buyers, and I think this is a positive indication for the $5 million and higher real estate market as a whole, showing that these types of properties at this price point are selling in the city.”

Classically designed and custom built by BGD&C, this home was completed in 2013. The residence encompasses three oversized city lots and has 8,000 square feet of living space on two levels, in addition to a finished lower level with a spectacular wine room. The refined formal rooms and wide-open kitchen, family and informal dining room all lead to a huge terrace and lawn. The outdoor terrace leads out to magnificent views of the completely landscaped grounds with formal gardens. There is a master suite with a separate sitting room.

Owen is consistently a top broker at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group and in 2017 was ranked within the top 1/2 of 1% of the entire national Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network.

“We are so proud of Janet for closing this listing in a short amount of time, considering this home just entered the market at the beginning of June 2018,” said David Bracy, Managing Broker of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group’s Michigan Avenue office. “The fact that the last single-family home sale at this price point was also represented by Janet, speaks to the type of hardworking agent she is for her clients.”

Alan Zuber, Managing Broker of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group’s Michigan Avenue office echoed Bracy’s statement, “Janet has been one of our top agents for years, and her success is a testament to her ability to find the right home for her clients and buyer for the most distinguished properties in the Chicagoland area.”
