ATG Congratulates 2015 Top Members

A Celebration of the Best

Peter J. Birnbaum photoThe last few issues of The Trusted Adviser focused on real estate and business issues — some very serious. This month we're taking a look at the lighter side and recognizing a special group of members.

ATG has a long-standing tradition of hosting special events to celebrate top-producing members. Our Chicago events typically take place at famous landmarks or historic, renovated spaces. This year we hosted an evening at one of the West Loop's hottest new spots, VenueOne, located in the old Richters Food Products factory. The building is known as Chicago’s best example of an art deco style factory. Constructed in 1931, the design reflected optimism and the latest in technology in the midst of the Great Depression. Fast-forward 85 years and there was plenty of optimism inside at the recent ATG event. The space was packed with ATG members and staff, live music, great food, and cocktails. The interesting use of space, lighting, and surrounding multi-media graphic displays contributed to a wonderful evening.

Congratulations, ATG Top Members! Thank you for your business and your ongoing loyalty.
