Meet Sarah Ware
Although Sarah Ware had always been involved in some facet of real estate during the 15 years she spent working in corporate America, she sought to deepen her involvement in a way that would help more people. Now that she’s spent 20 years in real estate full time, she hasn’t regretted a minute of it.
As Principal and Managing broker of Ware Realty Group LLC, Ware works in residential markets on Chicago’s South Side and within the south suburbs. She also does commercial transactions all over the Chicagoland area. On the residential side, Ware tends to work with sellers hoping to move up after a change in income or family status. She also assists property investors who have a focus on serving communities where there is a push to drive and stabilize prices.
Ware runs a boutique office that’s been certified by the city as Minority- and Woman-owned, as well as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise. Within the past year, Ware has been able to participate in programs sponsored by the University of Chicago’s Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation and Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. Through these programs, Ware has been able to dissect her business, move forward with strategic hires and implement more targeted goal setting. “One of the major challenges is access to management resources, and these opportunities gave me a plan for the next three years to help take my business to the next level,” Ware says.
Sarah Ware is no stranger to real estate. Having worked in corporate America for almost 20 years at various firms related to real estate, she took her knowledge and left to concentrate on real estate full-time in 2007. Since then she was a partner in one brokerage but ultimately opened her own boutique firm in 2014. As the sole Owner, she knows the importance of have a plan in place and the value of being strategic.
Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, Illinois, Sarah is passionate about real estate and her firm serves as one of the few firms in Chicago that holds the designation of being a 100% certified M/W/DBE where she works on various government contracts for the City of Chicago and the State of Illinois.
