Gwen Farinella doesn’t just live in Chicago. She lives Chicago. A Windy City native and lifelong resident, Gwen raised her children in Lincoln Park in the 1970s and 80s, and then moved to the heart of Streeterville in 2004. She knows the city better than just about anyone, and is proud to make a career out of helping others find a home here.
For over a decade, Gwen has stayed at the forefront of Chicago luxury real estate. She initially made a name for herself as a key contributor to Related’s development division, selling and marketing some of the city’s most luxurious condominium developments of the past decade. Her projects include 250 E, Pearson, 270 E. Pearson, 840 N. Lake Shore Drive, 340 E. Randolph and 60 W. Erie. With valuable exposure to the design-and-build process, Gwen gained a true understanding of what adds to and detracts from home value, both on the inside and out.
Gwen expanded her reach in 2009, when she began marketing and selling existing homes in addition to development projects. Her abilities were proven quickly, as she earned accolades as a Chicago Association of REALTORS®Top Producer. She had continued success in development as she formed half of the team that sold out the final 11 condominiums in the super-luxury Elysian Private Residences—in fewer than eight months.
In 2012, Gwen joined Related Sales Chicago. With her she brought her extensive knowledge of the company and its history, as well as her expertise on the Chicago real estate market as a whole. While she specializes in luxury residential real estate, Gwen enjoys working with a variety of property types and price ranges and has represented both buyers and sellers alike. She adeptly balances the emotional aspects of home buying or selling with the pragmatic requirements, guiding her clients from the first showing to the closing table.
Gwen is a member of the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing.
