Get To Know Us Better

Bob Schiller started Schiller Real Estate in 1970 at the age of 30. He opened the first Schiller office on the 2nd fl of the building at 100 S. York Rd. His goal was to build the most ethical professional real estate company in DuPage County and become #1 in the market place. Within a year, his brother Joe joined Bob. They became partners in Schiller Real Estate and started to build the company. They then moved to a one-room office in the building at 528 S. York Road. Eventually they took over the whole building as their staff and sales force grew. By 1978, Schiller real Estate had achieved 22 million in sales.

In 1986, Bob’s wife Anne Murphy Schiller joined the company as a sales agent. Five years later she became the sales manager. Joe’s wife, Nancy Schiller also joined Schiller as a sale agent. Nancy is still working in real estate for the new company Koenig & Strey Real Living under the Schiller Team.

Schiller continued to grow and by 1988 they had achieved sales of over 79 million. By 1990 Schiller Real Estate and its 44 agents were voted the best Realtors in Elmhurst in the “Best of Tree City” contest and achieved a 45% market share.
Amy Schiller joined the company as a sales associate. Tim Schiller started in the mortgage business and became a sales associate at Schiller. Both Amy and Tim became part of the management team. They were an integral part of the decision to merge Schiller with Koenig & Strey.

Schiller real continued to grow into the largest Independent Real Estate Company in DuPage County. By 1999 they moved into the US Bank Building at 540 S. York Rd. They had over 90 sales agents and a staff of 8. They were the #1 office in Elmhurst and #3 office in DuPage County.

Throughout the years Bob, Anne, Amy and Tim had offers from various franchises to merge with Schiller Real Estate. They never felt any of those companies were the right fit for the Schiller Team. In 2010, after 40 years in the business they found the perfect match. Schiller Real Estate merged with HomeServices of America, Inc. the nation’s second largest homeownership service provider. From this merger, The Schiller Team of Koenig & Strey was born which is currently the top real estate team in Elmhurst and was just ranked in Chicago magazine’s “Top 20 DuPage broker’s for 2011”. The Schillers plan to continue their legacy in the Real Estate market for years to come. We look forward to working with you, your family and friends in the near future.
