With 34 years of experience, Bob Dickinson, Senior Vice President of Sales at Greater Illinois Title Company, is an industry titan and expert in all areas of real estate. His experience in the Chicago area lasted a lifetime. “I’ve lived in the metropolitan area all my life and that’s how I learned about the market; constantly reading, investigating, communicating and networking with everyone has helped me tremendously,” he says.
With a background as a musician, Dickinson has always been adept at meeting new people and staying cool. “Standing in front of strangers and friends playing music was a great start,” he says. “Also, my first job was selling shoes in a retail environment, which again helped boost my confidence.”
Dickinson earns all of her business through referrals, past clients, and networking, thanks to her fun, focused style of engagement. He has also won numerous professional awards over the years. He closed more than $200 million in deals in 2021, was recognized as a top quarterly and annual producer by Greater Illinois Title, and was named Recruiter of the Year by the Home Builders Associations of Greater Chicago. He is also a proud member of the Southside Builders Association, Real Estate Investors Association, Neighborhood Builders Ordinance Alliance, and Chicago Association of Realtors.
When he’s not making record deals in Chicago, Dickinson is focused on philanthropy and having fun. He makes annual trips with Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief and development charity focused on the physical needs of people around the world. He’s an avid trumpeter, but he also makes time to enjoy racquetball, pickleball and landscaping.
