Born and raised in Chicago, Mario Greco came to real estate by way of engineering and law. He graduated with honors from both Northwestern University (with degrees in Chemical Engineering and Environmental Engineering) and from Boston University School of Law. He practiced law for almost seven years at both Jones Day and Kirkland & Ellis in Chicago in their Intellectual Property Litigation departments. While practicing law full time, he started his own real estate brokerage firm, Greco Realty & Brokerage, L.L.C. (GRB, LLC), and sold an average of $9M worth of real estate a year on a part-time basis. GRB, LLC grew to four agents and an assistant before Century 21 Sussex & Reilly acquired it in 2002. He left C21 Sussex & Reilly in 2004 to join Rubloff Residential Properties expanding The Mario Greco Group in the process. Rubloff was one of the oldest and most prestigious real estate brokerages in Chicago and in 2009 merged with Prudential Preferred Properties to create Prudential Rubloff Properties, Chicago's premier residential brokerage.
Continuing Mario's unprecedented rise to the top of the Chicago real estate market that began in September of 2002, The Mario Greco Group is currently ranked #1 statewide and #32 nationally by The Wall Street Journal & REAL TRENDS' The Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals. Mario ended 2012 as the #1 full service agent in the entire city of Chicago since 2008, and has sold over $600M worth of City property during that span – in the worst real estate market in recent history. Mario has been the city's top producer in numerous neighborhoods over the years including the following in 2011: Lakeview (including the Blaine & Nettelhorst School Districts), Roscoe Village, North Center (including the Bell & Coonley School Districts), Old Irving Park, Irving Park (including the Disney II Magnet & Bateman School Districts), Lincoln Square, Andersonville, Uptown, Ravenswood and Avondale. He has been in the top 1% of all Chicago Realtors every year since he started selling real estate, amounting to almost $1B worth of real estate since 2002.
Mario continues to lead The Mario Greco Group at Prudential Rubloff. The Group specializes in representing clients who purchase and sell condominiums, townhomes, single-family homes and income property within the City of Chicago and the Northern, Western and Northwest suburbs.
Mario and his wife, Julie, their 6 dogs and their occasional foster dogs live in Old Irving Park.
