Since 1995, Shrake Group has served thousands of clients as residential and commercial real estate brokers. Its three divisions, Global Luxury, Commercial & Investor Services, and Residential, serve their clients' specific needs.

Group founder Matt Shrake began his award-winning career at the corner of Ashland Ave and Diversey Pkwy and has spent the last 25+ years expanding and deepening client services using Coldwell Banker Realty's platform to serve clients. He knows the city intimately, is an industry leader, and spends countless hours staying current on the real estate market. Matt has given his time to neighborhood councils, non-profits for our underprivileged neighbors, public and private schools, youth athletic boards, urban renewal, sports coaching, and numerous other community-building efforts. He knows and loves Chicago and its neighborhoods, and Chicagoans from all walks of life know and respect Matt. His passion for selling, developing, and managing real estate across Chicago’s great neighborhoods and nearby suburbs, and the tremendous support and loyalty of his client base has pushed Matt to bring on additional brokers and real estate enthusiast administrative staff members over the years to grow into today's Shrake Group.

Shrake Group's client-centered loyalty, confidentiality, and results-driven solutions make them a trusted real estate partner across Chicago, the US, and the world.

Ashley Beirne joined Matt in 2015, quickly jumping in as an already licensed broker to serve her existing clients and assist Matt as a showing specialist while she worked another full-time job. Ashley's completion of graduate school has led her to a new career in the not-for-profit sector, but she remains as a trusted Shrake Group managerial advisor, helping with bigger picture strategy.

Laura Apostolopoulos joined the team in 2016 as an unlicensed assistant. She quickly realized she wanted to become a broker helping clients realize their dreams too. She got her real estate broker's license shortly thereafter, and began building her own client database. Laura and her beautiful young family moved from River West to Chicago's western suburbs in 2017. She has quickly established herself as a trusted local west and southwest Chicago suburb Realtor, and her move has expanded Shrake Group's Chicagoland footprint.
