Meet Sydney

Sydney Ellefson


Born in West Los Angeles and raised in Rochester, Minnesota, Sydney caught the travel bug when she studied abroad in northern England during college. Since then, her immense love of travel has taken her all over the world. She landed in Chicago in 2015 and has enjoyed the big city life for the past five years. Sydney was weeks away from moving to New Zealand in the spring of 2020 when they closed their borders and the world shut down. Pandemic closures brought Sydney full circle; back to Rochester where she decided to pursue her dream of becoming a real estate agent.

Sydney has spent almost a decade in the restaurant service industry. Her experience working with people and providing fantastic customer service, as well as her degree in Communication Studies and Sociology, serves her well with her real estate clients. Sydney values integrity and honesty, and works tirelessly to make sure her clients get the service they deserve. Sydney aims to build mutual trust and long lasting relationships with her clients to make them feel comfortable during each step of the home buying and/or selling experience.

In her free time, Sydney enjoys daydreaming about and planning future travels, drinking coffee, and snuggling with her Chicago alley cat rescue, Thomas O’Malley, and her pitbull/lab rescue, Tommy Bahama.
