Temple Schultz brings her real estate clients a vast understanding of Chicago's different neighborhoods, developed through her education in urban planning and years of experience working within the city's schools and park district. Her career has taken her to every part of the city, and she's proud to have worked closely with communities throughout both the north and south sides of Chicago. Her ability to focus and recall the assets and challenges that characterize each unique neighborhood give her a special insight and ability to match clients with not only the property they're looking for, but also the best community for their needs. ""I like to open my clients' eyes to options they might not have considered,"" she says. ""I don't just think about how a home looks today and how it stands as a structure - I think about the surrounding community's history and future."" She also has a particular expertise in the city's rich cultural offerings, having worked on the City of Chicago 2012 Cultural Plan by devising maps of cultural entities for aldermen in all 50 Chicago wards. Temple is also an award-winning musician, band leader, and event planner. Her experience within these occupations has brought her a true sense of how to provide her real estate clients with the attentive service they want from a broker. ""Event planning is very client-focused,"" she explains. ""Working on weddings, I found great pleasure in making sure countless couples had the personal touches they needed to make their event the most memorable it could be."" She believes that the milestones of getting married and purchasing a home both deserve individualized attention, and she finds it especially rewarding to be a broker with Dream Town - a company that focuses on the client and works as a team to ensure every resource is available to them. Temple lives with her family in a historic bungalow within the West Ridge area of Rogers Park, where she is fond of the ethnic diversity and various parks. She continues to write and perform music professionally, as well as teach classes for Ravinia, bringing arts integration to Chicago Public Schools. Temple owns not only her home, but also two rental units in the area, and is happy to talk to her clients about the risks and advantages of property investment.
