Downtown Apartment Co. Promotes Three to Partner 

Chicago-based Downtown Apartment Company (DAC), specializing in luxury residential leasing in downtown Chicago, along with its for-sale arm Downtown Realty Company (DRC), has promoted Quentin Green, Aysha Hackert and Kati Baker to partners. 

Green and Hackert will serve as director of development and director of professional development, respectively, while Baker will continue as director of recruitment. Additionally, Downtown Apartment Company has promoted Alexa Morgan to director of client relations and Jodi Dougherty to director of broker development. 

“The past two years have been an extremely intense and active real estate market and Quentin, Aysha, and Kati were there each step of the way, helping guide our clients to a successful lease, home purchase or sale,” said Ben Creamer, DAC co-founder and DRC managing broker. In fact, in some cases, it was all of the above – where clients went from becoming renters to owners, and our team often worked both transactions.”
