Managing broker, Ben Creamer, recently sat down with Chicago Agent Magazine to discuss learning and coaching from your mistakes. “There’s no greater source of teachable moments than your own personal experience in the business” he said.

The article also discussed how Ben and the DAC leadership develop agents by running through problem solving exercises. “Regardless of whether they give the right answer, they’ve learned something valuable through the thought process.” He emphasized the importance of putting your team first, being humble, and preparing your team for a range of situations, as well as having a team with diverse skill sets and knowing how to play to everyone’s strengths.

There’s No Shortage of Things To Do

Between team events, like the famous annual DAC Holiday party, industry exclusive looks, like hard hat tour previews, and whole industry networking opportunities, like broker open houses and new inventory openings, there’s no shortage of team building and professional development activities at DAC.

“I love working at DAC because my calendar is so full” says Alexa Morgan, an agent at DAC. “There’s always an opportunity to build great, lasting relationships whether its with other members of the team or other industry professionals.”

There’s Never A Dull Moment

No two days are the same at Downtown Apartment Company. The constant influx of new rental inventory, new clients, a growing team, and regular agent trainings, there’s no shortage of new places to see, things to learn, or people to meet.

DAC broker, Adam Valentino, says “The market is booming and areas that weren’t as residential have been rapidly growing and are therefore, now in higher demand. The popularity in these rapidly growing areas brings new real estate inventory, restaurants, green space, and an overall developing sense of community, so even as a local there’s always something new to learn about the city because of how regularly it’s growing and changing.”

Due to the growing team, Downtown Apartment Company recently opened an innovative new office in River North.
