A little about me
and why I love real estate
Adrien Bellagio is a Broker Associate of Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty, with more than 6 years of experience in Chicagoland residential and commercial real estate. Since 2009, he has completed more than 600 residential and commercial real estate transactions.
Growing up, Adrien developed a sense of international culture, living in Europe, South America, and the Caribbean. Ultimately, his family settled in Miami Beach. Adrien completed his secondary education there, and went on to complete his undergraduate degree in animal sciences at the University of Florida main campus in Gainesville.
At the age of 15, Adrien began modeling for Ford Models. During his modeling career, Adrien worked international runways, including the Milan, Paris, and New York Fashion Weeks. His clients included fashion powerhouses such as Gucci, Prada, Dolce & Gabana, Wilke Rodriguez, Versus, and Isaac Mizrahi. In Fall 1996, Adrien was the face of the Guess international print campaign.
After finishing his undergraduate degree, Adrien began his career in business. At 21, he was made assistant manager at Wal-Mart in Miami — at that time, the youngest person in Wal-Mart history to hold the position. He later moved on to work as a Private Banker for Bank of America and J.P. Morgan Chase. While in banking, Adrien earned his Series 6, 7, 63, and 66 licenses.
In 2009, after one year with J.P. Morgan Chase in Chicago, Adrien decided to leave banking. After quitting his job, he took a one-month hiatus in Italy, during which time he decided he would make a career out of real estate. Adrien returned to Chicago, completed his pre-licensing course, and earned his Real Estate Broker’s license in less than 4 weeks. He immediately immersed himself in his newly-chosen career.
Adrien’s clients have come to know him as a friend and an advocate. He takes the time to listen to his clients and to understand their needs and desires. He uses his knowledge and experience to put together a customized plan for each client.
Whether you’re looking to sell, purchase, or lease real estate, Adrien is here to help. He’s earned the trust of more than 600 clients, and he has the experience you need.
