Soulful Sunday is a weekly dose of inspiration from busy Chicago women who still manage to stay balanced no matter what their career—or life—throws their way.
Soul Sister: Izabela Sloma, broker at Sergio & Banks Real Estate
A native of Jastrzebie Zdroj, Poland, Sloma came to Chicago for opportunity and to achieve her dreams. Her passion for real estate stems from the personal connection she makes with each client and the goal of making the home buying and selling process as painless as possible.
"My philosophy is to never 'sell' but instead to educate, inform, warn, and advise," explains Sloma. "I adore working with people from all backgrounds; from first-time home buyers to savvy investors, builders, sellers, buyers, those doing a 1031 exchange, and relocations. I strive to make each and every client a client for life."
How she unwinds: "When I have time (which is very rare) I enjoy reading—anything and everything. I love to take walks in the park with my dog, Maksio (pronounced: Max), and explore this great city."
Balance tip: "The oldest trick in the book is to flip a coin. My intuition guides me and helps me decide what I'm feeling the moment the coin is flipped. Right then and there I know how to move forward. Trusting myself—and knowing myself— are part of growing personally and professionally, and that is how I create my balance."
