aimee lerner

As the field marketing director for Coldwell Banker NRT in Chicago and the mother of triplets – yes, TRIPLETS – Aimee has her hands full in every possible way. She manages the region’s marketing portfolios and works with an awesome team of field specialists who continually strive to satisfy the marketing needs of affiliated agents. Patient, strong-willed and fair, Aimee wears her heart on her sleeve and is the type of person who thinks about what she wants for dinner before getting out of bed in the morning – probably because it’s the only chance she has the time.

Alex has an appreciation for the arts (delivering his best actor impressions for his wife/best friend and their one-eyed cat Lily), but his idea of modern theater is pro wrestling!

versackas deb

If you ever find yourself in a panic because you forgot you’re hosting tomorrow night’s Fourth of July party, Deb is your girl. As an event specialist, Deb is in charge of planning and managing events for the entire company and also manages the charitable giving for three Coldwell Banker regions. An organizing machine, Deb also doubles as the life of the party if you remember to bring her oysters—seriously. She eats them weekly, and we’re curious to know if she gathers them up herself while floating on the ocean waters on her 6-foot inflatable unicorn. In all seriousness, Deb is a valued member not just of The Studio, but of the community, likely thanks to her motto, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
