Axelson Realty was started by my husband, Knute Axelson, in 2003. We wanted to create a brokerage that could give exceptional, individualized attention to clients while maintaining the highest standards of integrity – something that is, unfortunately, lacking at times in the real estate business. We hire agents who are educated, friendly, and ethical. Most of our business comes from referrals because we take such good care of our clients. I, Joy Axelson, became the 51% owner and managing broker a few years ago. Since I have teaching experience, mentoring new agents is one of my strong points. At Axelson Realty, we build rapport by connecting with clients about the things that matter to them. Speaking multiple languages means I can usually greet international clients in their native tongue. Please keep Axelson Realty in mind for rentals, purchases, and listings in Chicago and most suburbs (including DuPage, Kane, Lake, Cook counties among others). We will take great care of you and give you a competitive marketing fee (for sellers). Last summer, our teenage son worked at our company. It’s our hope that he will one day get his license and carry on our tradition of caring and integrity.
