The Chase - What makes Century 21 Affiliated Agents Special

Professional Background

Greetings, I am Dr. J. A. Resto.  I was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico - USA.  My family moved to Chicago, IL when I was just 6 months old, and I was raised in the Humboldt Park area of Chicago.  I started my Career in Real Estate when I was 21, with Century 21 Quality Homes in the Logan Square area of Chicago.  Since then I have helping others’ achieve their real estate dream, and that has been my passion.  Whether it is helping first time buyers find their first home, helping sellers close their sale without stress added to the transaction or helping my team members grow their own real estate career; my legacy is my dedication to my clients and my reputation amongst my peers.  My 30 years in Real Estate has taken me from Sales Agent to Office Manager of Century 21 CitiSales, Inc. then to Recruiter and Trainer for a mid-sized independent office to then become the Recruiter and Tainting Coordinator of a struggling Re/Max office, Re/Max Casablanca, which I help grow from 13 agents to 94 agents in just six years.   Since moving to the West Suburbs back in 2000, I have dedicated eight years to my personal academic growth, and now I am back at what I love most, providing outstanding real estate services - here at Century 21 Affiliated. 


During my education journey I completed BS in Management and Leadership, with an Elementary Education Certification, an MA in School Administration and Leadership and yes; I also completed my Doctorate in Organization Leadership this past December, 2015.
