It's no surprise that after 28 years in the industry, Doris E. Rivera has distinguished herself as one of the top producers in the Chicagoland real estate market. As the daughter of a Central American mother and father, Doris has spent considerable time in both the United States and El Salvador. She is not only fluent in Spanish but is also bicultural and moves effortlessly between the Latino and American communities. As a broker, Doris is an expert in the Chicagoland area as well as in the Northwest suburbs. Her former clients will attest to the fact that she is detail-oriented and can be relied upon to make transactions as seamless as possible. Doris has been described as an "advocate for her clients" for good reason: she brings a sincere, honest desire to serve the needs of her clients to each and every interaction.
When Doris is not working with clients, she spends her time visiting the elderly that may not have any family or friends to visit with them. She truly cares for them and spends quality time with them by reading to and having extensive conversations with them. Doris also hosts many FREE seminars not only to gain new clients but to educate the Latino community on how to keep their homes, make modifications, etc. Her decision to take this journey and begin a career in real estate has been a blessing. It is truly rewarding helping those in need of finding their perfect home, and helping current/future business owners accomplish their dreams of having the perfect location for success!
