ESW has consistently exceeded $130 million in annual sales volume, and this transition will only further solidify the Sachs Wong team as one of the most successful in the Chicago metropolitan area.

Allie grew up in Northern Illinois and always admired the architectural significance of the Windy City. After graduating from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, she promptly moved to Chicago to begin her work with ESW. Allie currently resides in Lakeview with her 3 year-old Pomeranian-mix rescue, Bandit.
