About Rachael Real
I have been been a licensed Realtor and have worked full time in the western suburbs of Chicago since 2005. I currently hold the position of Managing Broker for Earned Run Real Estate Group.
I joined Earned Run Real Estate Group to be a part of the growth of an independent brokerage with a unique value proposition. Earned Run Real Estate Group offers real estate brokerage services, as well as full property management services and pre-listing/post-purchase renovation services. My role as Managing Broker allows me to share my experiences and knowledge of the business with the growing team of agents, dedicated to a superior client experience.
I am a fierce advocate for education among Realtors and I serve on both the Professional Standards Committee and the Broker-Lawyer Committee at the Mainstreet Organization of REALTORS® in Downers Grove.
If you are looking for a Realtor to be your advocate and educator, look no further. My expertise and hands-on approach ensure a smooth transaction and happy clients! After all, my goal is to do all of her business by referral… and this couldn’t be achieved without happy clients!

When not working, I enjoy spending time with my two teenaged sons, both avid baseball players, and my yellow labrador, Jersey. I also enjoy renovating homes, and I am always on the lookout for my next project.
I served as the Vice President (2015-2017) of the Lombard Town Centre, a community-based organization dedicated to preserving and promoting historic downtown Lombard as the heart of Lombard and a vibrant commercial destination. My passion is assisting current businesses in their efforts to expand, and bringing new businesses to the downtown area. I truly love watching downtown evolve into a destination for the residents of Lombard. For more information, visit the Lombard Town Centre website.
