CHEENA CHANDRA Broker Related Realty Few agents have as diverse a professional background as that of Cheena Chandra, a broker with Related Realty. In addition to a 10-year stint in business with some of the most admired companies in the world, including Accenture, 3M, Mattel and U.S. Cellular, Chandra holds an Master of Business Administration from the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management. Such unique credentials and strong business acumen have given Chandra a dynamic perspective on real estate. With her sharp instincts, strong analytical skills and preternatural foresight into market trends, Chandra is always able to create unexpected opportunities for her clients, and as she explains it, she has used those skills to develop the relationships that are so essential for success in real estate. “I understand the importance of a relationship first and foremost,” she says. “That ability – to develop strong relationships – has made my business 98 percent referral since relocating back to Chicago just two years ago. Relationships matter, and how clients feel about what may be their largest purchase and investment matters.” Chandra’s tenacity and commitment is perhaps best demonstrated by a recent condo transaction in Chicago. Amidst an exhausting and stressful 60-day bidding period, Chandra not only sold her client’s townhouse in less than a week, but also secured three separate extensions with the condo’s seller while her client awaited approval for his mortgage; and during the entire process, Chandra contacted her client’s attorney, mortgage broker and the client himself multiple times a day to ensure that everything was in its proper place. As one of her clients described it, “I have never met a more hardworking individual that cares so much about making sure every single detail is covered. She is in a category all on her own.”
