KlopasStratton Team

2019 was a great year for The KlopasStratton Team with $82 million in sales in areas like Bucktown & Wicker Park, Logan Square, Roscoe Village, Gold Coast, Lakeview, Uptown, Lincoln Park, South Loop, West Loop, and Irving Park. The team was recognized for the 12th consecutive year at the Chicago Association of Realtors sales awards ranking in the top 1% of all realtors in the City of Chicago, achieving notoriety for both dollar and transaction volume. In 2019, the team was recognized as Platinum achiever once again, ranking in the top 20 agents in all of Chicago! Sophia, Jason, Chris, Erika, Zach, Jeff, and Rachel believe that with their unique mix of experiences, all clients will feel that they are completely covered in every aspect of real estate, from personal property to investment properties.

Sophia Klopas

[email protected]312-927-0334

Sophia has a degree in Interior Design which assists her buyers in stepping back and noticing the appeal of different properties. Certain things that buyers may overlook, Sophia notices. For the piece of property that has everything a buyer wants, but is missing “that-little-something”, Sophia Klopas can fix it. Her approach gives buyers a unique vision of their property and a great understanding of what will help in a resale later on. On the selling side, Sophia’s background is extremely strong. Having extensive and varied experience in design, she is able to look at a listing and tell the owner(s) what is needed for a quick and profitable sale. Sophia and her husband moved to Bucktown over 19 years ago, on a hunch that the neighborhood would come around. Happily they were right, and still call Bucktown home today.

Jason prides himself on examining a client from heart to mind, understanding the passion one has for a piece of property and assessing a property’s fair value.
