Top Agent Cornelia Matache – of Coldwell Banker Residential in Chicago, Illinois – is a dedicated real estate professional who has long been committed to providing every one of her many grateful clients, be they buyer or seller, with the very best customer service available in The Windy City. When speaking with Cornelia, who it should be mentioned, is fluent in both English and Romanian, one can’t help but be impressed by the enthusiasm in her voice when discussing what she does for a living. That this enthusiasm has survived her lengthy twenty-five-year real estate career is nearly as impressive as her vast reservoir of experience and industry knowledge.

Cornelia, who was born in Romania and moved to the United States in 1986, began her journey in real estate when her father was buying a home and he asked her to help him with translation. She did, and found the experience to be, in her words, “mesmerizing.” Six years later, she and her then-husband were working in the construction field, and the couple decided it would benefit them for her to have her real estate license. “That was in 1994,” says Cornelia, sounding justifiably proud of the longevity of her stellar career.

Selling a huge swath of Chicagoland, Cornelia has found impressive success since then an enviable career that now sees more than two of her business being based upon referrals on positive word of mouth, a stunning achievement that makes clear how happy she is making her clients. “It’s really about the customer service I provide,” says Cornelia, when asked how she has managed to inspire such impressive levels of trust and loyalty in those she works with. “I try to think outside the box in order to get my clients the property they want, and I absolutely never give up on them. I also work hard to educate my clients about the entire transaction process, and to set realistic expectations that I can then help them meet.”

There are many other factors to be considered when assessing the reasons for Cornelia’s longtime success, and chief among them would be her fastidious attention to detail and her expert negotiation skills. Also, her enthusiastic and comprehensive marketing strategies have become a hallmark of her business. Professional photography is utilized exclusively, ensuring that each listing is always showcased in its best light. Professional floorplans provide extensive value, and her deft utilization of the internet and social media make certain that every property is exposed to as many potential buyers as possible.

When she’s not working, Cornelia loves reading and traveling. Staying healthy is also a priority for her; cardio, strength training and kickboxing are all part of her fitness regime. Cornelia also finds time to gives back to her community through her church and a variety of local and global charity organizations. Most dear to her heart, however, is the acapella singing duo she has formed with another Realtor. When she begins talking about singing Christmas carols at a local senior citizen center, Cornelia chokes up a bit. “It’s probably among the most rewarding things I’ve ever done,” she says, and plans are afoot to extend their singing to additional senior facilities and eventually children’s hospitals.

Cornelia has many plans for the future of her business, and she is firmly rooted in the idea that no matter how successful one is, there is always room for improvement. “I still aim to get even better,” say Cornelia, who will never be content to rest on her laurels, though she would have every right to do so.
