As a first generation Italian from the DePaul area in Chicago, Barry's strong work ethic began when he was very young. While growing up, his family constantly struggled to make ends meet. Therefore, he began working at the young age of 10. His first jobs consisted of delivering groceries and flowers- which got him through paying his own grammar and high school tuition payments. After high school, he was lucky enough to land a job at a local printing company. He remained a printer for 11 years- when one day he decided to make a serious change in his career path.
Not knowing where his future was headed, in 1972 he was offered a real estate sales position by an owner of Ben Friend Realty. With virtually no experience he became the #1 agent in Northwest Chicago in his second year on the job. During his third year in the industry, he met Robert J. McMullen, owner of McMullen Realtors [established in 1945.] Barry partnered with Robert and ran the small 3-agent office and grew it to 7 agents in a few short years- until Mr. McMullen retired in 1980- at which time Barry remained the sole owner of the company. At this time, Barry along with General Manager John Guest, grew the company into 15 agents and moved to larger quarters. It was in 1983 when Barry bought a CENTURY 21® franchise.
And the rest is history. Over the course of 30 years, Barry built up CENTURY 21 McMullen Real Estate, Inc. to what it is today: the #1 Century 21® Office in the state of Illinois- and in the top 25 Century 21®Offices in the county- with billions of dollars in lifetime sales. Today the company has over 150 licensed agents, an experienced Management Team and a full-service support staff that is housed in a beautiful, state-of-the-art, 16,000sq.ft. building that Barry himself developed and rightfully named "Tuscany Terrace"- to honor where his parents were from in Italy. The company prides itself on its customer-centric business model- where superior customer service lies at the root of its business. And, with the help of Barry's youngest daughter Angela, the company continues to make advances in marketing and technology- keeping it not only a prime choice for agents to establish a career at- but a fierce competitor in today's market.

Comments: Read my clients' comments about me..
She is extremely organized and kept us updated. She had a clear and aggressive marketing plan. Her commitment to service is like no other agent. We worked with a couple of agents before and they never delivered what they promised. We knew she would provide us excellent service but, she exceeded our expectations.
Renee is not only on top of the real estate market - she is one step ahead. She would inform us of the current real estate market and what her research showed in the near future. Her ideas and plans on marketing the home showed us she is a seasoned real estate agent.
If and when we have to move again we would no doubt work with Renee again. We have and always will recommend her to our friends and family.
Sari and Brian
My husband and I have worked with 6 realtors in the last 11 years , and Renee was by far the most superior. We recommend Renee for the following three reasons. Renee is a creative problem solver, she's a very hard worker and is an excellent communicator.
Renee is an outstanding agent! I truly believe that if we had not hired Renee Devedjian, our house would still be for sale. Her creativity, work ethic and communication skills make her one of the best in her field.
Bottom line - She is the best!
Laurie and Scott
I moved here from Philadelphia six weeks ago with very little knowledge about this area. Pairing me up with Renee, who is a native of this area and knows it like the back of her hand, was perfect. She took the extra time to help me to understand the feel of the neighborhoods and towns, and was endlessly patient with me as I came into a full understanding about where I'd feel most at home.
Renee just wasn't selling me a house. She helped make one of my life's biggest transitions a smooth and pleasant experience. I have moved many times, and I have to say it's been the best experience!
We would like to express our gratitude and great satisfaction with Renee Devedjian's real estate services. We were at a time in our lives in which we had to purchase a home during an economically unstable time point in this country's history. Renee provided us with outstanding service and reassurance in the face of a challenging real estate market. Her patience and perseverance over eight months was finally culminated in us buying a home that we feel will help us comfortablely build our lives. We highly recommend anyone to utilize Renee Devedjian's expertise in real estate. I know that we ourselves will confidently recommend her to friends looking to purchase a home.
