Imaginary is pleased to announce that Toni Van Ert has joined its team as Vice President of Business Development. In this role, Toni will lead all aspects of sales, marketing and client relations for the company.
Upon graduating from Michigan State University, Toni moved to Chicago to complete her MBA at DePaul University and began an exciting career in marketing and entrepreneurship. She helped develop the marketing and sales strategy for several Fortune 500 companies and later achieved success as an entrepreneur, leading sales for several start-up companies in Chicago through its technology incubator 1871.
In 2016 her passion for real estate and design pulled her in a new direction. Toni became a Broker with @Properties and began working with residential buyers and sellers, managing not only the real estate process but also her clients' design and construction needs.
Toni recently completed her own high profile project by transforming a tired brick colonial located on the historic Daniel Burnham estate into a laid back beach style home for her family and curiously large Labrador retriever. Her design work has been featured in several national television, print and web commercials.
"We are thrilled to welcome Toni to the Imaginary family in this newly designed leadership role," said Brian Moloney, President and CEO of Imaginary Landscape. "Her blend of sales, technology and creative talents will be the perfect fit for showcasing the capabilities of Imaginary Landscape to new and existing clients."
Toni lives in Evanston, Illinois with her family and of course Louie, her curiously large Lab.
