Blake Galler

Real Estate Broker

After many satisfying years in the fields of opera (you can ask me sing a few notes!) and technology consulting, I decided to focus on my true love of real estate. The communication (and creativity) skills from my former careers have made it an easy transition to this fulfilling field. I love seeing the smiles on my clients’ faces after we’ve closed a transaction and helping them start a new life phase.

That’s why the most important part of my job is building a relationship with you. I’ll get to know your real estate needs and goals and use my expertise and knowledge of the Chicago market to help you understand all the options available to you when buying or selling a home. I’ll negotiate aggressively on your behalf to make sure you get the best deal possible.

Also, I’m a news junkie and am always keeping up with the latest real estate news, trends, and education. So just think of me as your go-to source for the most timely real estate insights and advice.

If you’re not left with an amazing experience, then I haven’t done my job. I don’t measure success through achievements or awards, but through the satisfaction of my clients.

A little more about me
I’ve lived in Chicago since 2011 in several neighborhoods, so I’m familiar with all the ins and outs of this great city and its surrounding suburbs. I’m proud to call this city my home.

When I’m not working with clients, I love exploring the city with my husband, Dan, and our fur child, Roscoe.


February 2016 by Tim J. , Testimonial from Tim J. , Lincoln Park
I recently moved to Chicago from Philadelphia and connected to Elan Realty through an online apartment search engine. Blake, one of the members of the team, reached out to me quickly to start supporting my search. He sent me very helpful market listings exactly fitting my apartment needs and was able to arrange showings for me in a very timely fashion.

On the day of my showings, Blake was on time and very attentive. When meeting with property representatives he took detailed notes and always helped me to ask the right questions. He kindly drove me and my girlfriend around to each unit on my itinerary and helped me to understand the diverse neighborhoods of Chicago.

Blake overall was extremely professional and welcoming. Such a stressful move was made simple by his wonderful support. I highly recommend Blake and Elan to any person looking for a property in Chicago. They will definitely help you to find a great place!!!
