Century 21 Brand Affiliates with Leading Multicultural Real Estate Firm

April 28, 2023 // Franchising.com // WHEELING, IL. – Century 21 Real Estate LLC. is proud to strengthen its presence in the Greater Chicago area with the affiliation of the Utmost Real Estate Group, a boutique brokerage that has served Chicagoland since 2019.

The company is led by Grace Ryu, who first entered the real estate industry in 2006 and has since become a key resource for the local Korean-American real estate community. Ryu and the majority of her affiliated agents are bilingual and frequently work with clients of Korean descent on residential and commercial sales, tapping into the team’s collective expertise in taxes, finance, mortgage and architecture to provide an enhanced level of service. Ryu holds a master’s degree in psychology from Trinity International University, which has helped her develop strong relationships with her clients.

Now doing business as CENTURY 21 Utmost, Ryu and her team of relentless affiliated sales professionals will have access to the CENTURY 21 ® brand’s technology and marketing, lead generation, agent learning and coaching, and innovative productivity platform to help better serve and deliver the highest quality of service to homebuyers, homesellers and investors.

Based in Wheeling, the firm serves the northwest, northeast and western regions of the Greater Chicago metropolitan area. With an already strong presence in and around Wheeling, Ryu will leverage her affiliation with the CENTURY 21 brand to open a second office in the northern part of Naperville. She will fuel additional firm growth by tapping into the CENTURY 21 brand’s network, referral channels, professional development and recruiting programs, and state-of-the-art technology.

The firm is already reputable within the local Korean community, however, as a CENTURY 21 affiliated company, Ryu will focus on expanding the firm’s client base to serve an even more diverse clientele.

Ryu, who is Korean-American herself, founded her company with a business philosophy of serving people with the utmost respect, which aligns with the same values that are paramount in Korean culture.

The company is very involved with both global and local charities serving children. Ryu serves as president of the Global Children Foundation, which collaborates internationally with missionaries serving underprivileged children around the world.
