Monica Canellis' eclectic background set the groundwork for her immense success in real estate. From graphic design to retail, to being an executive assistant in the music industry, Monica consistently was referred to as the "social planner" and "connector" by friends and colleagues alike. Therefore, when she returned from Atlanta to her hometown of Chicago, many recommended real estate as her next career step.
Monica's intuitiveness for the interests and needs of those around her allows her to offer recommendations and advice as well as connect people she feels benefit one another. These qualities directly translate to her real estate business. Clients consistently commend Monica for her honesty, gregarious nature and ability to identify specific, individual needs amongst endless possibilities and opportunities. Monica's goal is to ensure her clients have a positive experience through their home buying or selling process.
Monica balances her work life by involving herself with social and charitable organizations, particularly Stimulus Social Club, which she is one of the founding members. Monica is married to Fox Chicago Sportscaster, Lou Canellis and resides in the Museum Park area of the South Loop.
“[In a home] You’re making an investment in what could be the most important asset you’ll ever have. The right moment is when you know where you’re going to live for a while, when you find the home that fits your family, and when it’s at level that fits in with your income and ability to make a down payment and then I would get a very long mortgage… 30-year mortgage and the rate will be fabulous, and there is no sense waiting if those conditions exist."
