HomeSmart Realty Group Expands Presence in the Midwest

Owner Dan Bowden sets up his fifth real estate location in the Land of Lincoln to meet the fast-paced growth

Orland Park, IL HomeSmart Realty Group has expanded its real estate brokerage services in the midwest marketplace, bringing its agent-centric platform to multiple counties throughout Illinois. The Orland Park-based brokerage is headed up by owner Dan Bowden and set to allow more real estate agents to tap into the company’s 100% commission model while helping clients find a new place to call home.

To date, Bowden has opened four brick-and-mortar locations for HomeSmart throughout Illinois, as well as another in Indiana. This new location, which will focus on areas including Peoria, Morton, Perkin, Deer Creek, and others, will temporarily operate out of the Orland Park office before moving into space more central to the newly-served areas.

“There isn’t another brokerage like us in Illinois. We are bringing a truly life-changing experience to not only the consumer but new agents as well,” says Bowden, who partnered with HomeSmart in 2010. “We focus on providing the highest value to agents at the lowest cost. Our local and national leadership teams’ united vision to build the best brokerages in the nation sets us apart.”

Bowden, who has 21 years of real estate experience, including a four-year stretch of being the top seller in the Tinley Park area, saw an opportunity to continue to grow his stake in a booming market by offering more accessibility to HomeSmart’s services.

“There is such a high demand right now not only for housing but also for a more consumer-friendly approach,” Bowden adds. “The strong Bamily culture we’re known for at HomeSmart answers that call and it was the right time to bring more of that to the region.”

The Bloomington-Normal area in Central Illinois is set for massive growth in the coming years, mostly due to the burgeoning electric vehicle industry. With an increased focus on electric vehicle technology and infrastructure, Central Illinois electric companies are strategizing for the expansion, which will bring more jobs and more people to the area. To help serve those new residents, HomeSmart Realty Group will be there to provide its brand of hands-on, expert advice and streamlined technology.
