“I am so pleased to welcome Tamy to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago,” Doney said in a press release. “I know that she has really missed working with buyers and sellers and is excited about giving 110% of her attention to representing her clients’ needs.”

Birk | Sklar Team paves way for others at Kiser Group
Multifamily brokerage Kiser Group announced last week the formation of the the Birk | Sklar team. Noah Birk and Aaron Sklar have worked together since 2015 to help clients buy and sell multifamily properties on the South Side of Chicago, but the firm previously didn’t have a system in place to formalize such partnerships.
“When Noah and Aaron first proposed the concept, we did not yet have adequate guidelines, protocol and structure for team formation,” Lee Kiser, principal and managing broker at Kiser Group, said in a press release. “Since then, we have been working with Noah and Aaron to establish a system for creating their team and a template for future teams.”
The duo has hired staff to assist in their growth, including two analysts, a new broker and a senior associate. Birk | Sklar have also extended their areas of representation to the West Side of Chicago.
“The team formation helps us leverage the success and market share we’ve established on the South Side into a strategy for expanding our geographic footprint,” Birk said.
