More exposure. Market sophistication. Better results.


List your home with The Carton Team and @properties

One thing is certain … our years of experience enable us to get the job done, get it done well, and get it done quickly. We negotiate strong deals for buyers and we obtain among the highest price-per-foot averages in our market. @properties listings have the shortest average time on the market, and the highest ratio of sales price to list price, of any major brokerage in Chicago. The Carton’s have broad real estate acumen. List your home with Patrick and Victoria Carton, and @properties, because we’re very good at what we do, and our track record demonstrates our capabilities.

The Shortest Time on the Market at the Best Sales Price

Our listings sell faster, because we work carefully with sellers to be certain that the property is priced correctly – right from the start. Quicker sales in most cases provides a higher margin, and of course fewer headaches for you.

Brokerage Experience

@properties was founded by two of Chicago’s most successful Realtors. Their track records of excellence speak volumes about their commitment to their clients, their company and you. When many firms lost agents and pulled back on advertising and technology innovation, @ properties actually increased these areas of the business resulting in fantastic growth and powerful agent acquisitions. @properties, in only ten years, has grown to become Chicago’s largest brokerage. Our expansion into Lake Forest, Winnetka, Glenview, Highland Park, Libertyville and Evanston has positioned @properties become the largest and best run brokerage firms in the Mid-west.

Market Share

Since its inception in 2000, @properties has become the fastest-growing Chicago Real Estate brokerage firm. We hold a greater market share than any other major brokerage in the area because we get results. Plain and simple.


In addition to employing tried-and-true methods of marketing, @properties has spent millions to stay on the cutting edge of technology. We use the latest research, and the latest technology to expose your listing not just to more buyers, but the right buyers. Your buyers. Social media innovations are the current commitment of the agents and the company. We try to not only stay ahead of the competition, we have industry-exclusive training provided by the company.


Did you know that more than 92% of homebuyers begin their search online? @properties is a part of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®, one of the largest Internet distribution networks in real estate. Your listing will be seen by more buyers, in more places than any other firm in Chicago. Your exposure will reach farther than limiting push-technology through Zillow, Trulia, RedFin, and the other main client resources. We have dedicated full time technology innovators who bring the latest techniques to the agents.


Each and every @properties listing has its own dedicated website. Each features crisp, quality photographs and a virtual tour, including technology that e-mails your listing directly to buyers, looking for homes just like yours.


Victoria and Patrick Carton have the confidence and strength to negotiate the best offer for your property. We are responsive and have the resourcefulness to help you reach your goals. The Carton Team has critical experience in high-end transactions with the proven ability to bring parties together in difficult deals. We have salvaged many strong deals where other agents may have walked away.


Patrick and Victoria Carton work as a team. By having 2 agents working for you at all times, you know that they are there for you, every step of the way. The Cartons involve you in all facets of the listing process and communicate your options clearly and candidly.

Attention to Detail

Keeping the details of a real estate transaction organized can be a daunting task, but Patrick and Victoria Carton have proven as Chicago real estate “Top Producers”, they are up to the task. Their follow-through and attention to detail ensure that your transaction is efficient, easy and trouble-free. Victoria experience as a Registered Nurse has fine tuned her listening skills, and Patrick’s Marketing MBA help the team to market with a high level of competency.

Good Karma

We love Chicago; it’s our home, too. That’s one of the reasons @properties and their agents give our time, energy and money to more than 16 local and national charities, in addition to establishing community gathering places and centers where all Chicagoans are welcome. Good relationships. Good business. Good Karma.
