Since becoming licensed as a Realtor in 2016, Damone Richardson has built a successful career in the ultra-competitive Chicago market. With a background in communications, human resources and consulting, he also has a passion for interior design and entered real estate to fully immerse himself in the entrepreneurial space. Based in Lincoln Park, he prides himself on providing exceptional, personalized service to a diverse clientele at every price point across the Chicago area. “I have built my business through prioritizing relationships and building community rather than focusing on the transactional nature of the work,” Damone says. As such, he has consistently grown his business over the past five years.

Clear and consistent communication is the core of Damone’s approach to guiding his clients through the complex and challenging process of buying or selling a home. He is thoughtful when delivering information to his clients and he’s always responsive since transactions can be not only stressful but fluid as well. “This is often the biggest purchase my clients will ever make, so I have to lead with clarity and transparency at all times and in all situations,” Damone says. “I want to earn my clients’ trust and maintain relationships long after the transaction is closed.” Clients love Damone’s personal approach to conducting business, proven by the fact that he gets 70% of his business through referrals and repeat clients – a number that keeps growing.

As a long-time resident of Chicago and an agent with an extensive background in a wide variety of fields, Damone understands what it takes to help his clients find the perfect home anywhere in the city. He listens carefully and has a data-driven approach. In addition, his experience in complex human resources negotiations make him the ideal agent when navigating a transaction.

Damone has a comprehensive approach to ensuring that each of his listings attract the widest possible audience of prospective buyers. Clients appreciate his attention to detail. He brings that level of focus to, for example, producing high-quality professional photography and clearly written property descriptions, “I have a comprehensive marketing strategy and the key is to maximize the exposure of every listing across a variety of platforms such as print and social media,” Damone adds. “It’s also important to cultivate and activate my network across the city. Not all listings are the same so it’s important to meet buyers where they are.”

Damone closed 25 transactions last year and received the Coldwell Banker International Diamond Society Award. In 2021 he’s projected to surpass $10MM in sales with 30+ transactions. “I believe in giving back, and I’m heavily involved in my community, serving as President of the West Loop Community Organization and on the Operating Board of the Chicago Maritime Arts Center, as well as routinely volunteering for BUILD Chicago.” In the future, Damone plans to incorporate more video into his marketing to elevate the exposure of his listings and to expand the scope and size of his growing business.
