|CREW and the Illinois Real Estate Journal joined forces to celebrate the careers of some of Chicago's top women in real estate for the third annual Women in Real Estate Awards luncheon. We snapped the awardees: Colliers' Lynn Reich, JLL's Meredith O'Connor(Bright Horizons Award), Perkins Coie's Alex Cole (Career Achievement Award), Transwestern's Stacey Kruger Birndorf(Crystal Apple Award), Haworth's Kelly Martincin (Community Service Award) and Shepard Schwartz & Harris' Deanna Arce (Bright Horizon's Award). Meredith, who previously worked in the public sector, helped move Navistar to Lisle, a great example of how public-private partnerships can create jobs in Illinois. The move will keep 3,000 jobs in the state.|
|Hoping to win next year, Kovitz Shifrin Nesbit's Jessica Ryan, Kerry Bartell, and Julie Jacobson join Titan Commercial's Paige Winkels and Emily VanderBeek. Titan is listing several retail properties on the North Side. Julie and Jessica work with evictions and foreclosures, which they say gives them insight into the housing market. They've seen more distressed renters and homeowners get new jobs, giving hope of an upturn soon.|
