Richard Batista, Designated Managing Broker, Owner & CMCA
Richard has been involved in real estate since the age of 12. As soon as he was able, he obtained his license and practiced real estate, on and off, over the years, while fulfilling family obligations. His professional background also includes the credit and finance field, as well as the wonderful world of hospitality (most recently Sunrise Senior Living and Greater Chicago Food Depository). In 2016, he chose to fully pursue his true passion of helping people find a new place to call Home and opened JJ Nate’s doors. Richard has the experience, drive, and attention to detail to help each and every Client achieve their real estate goals.
Sonia Teruel, Broker
Sonia is a veteran to Chicagoland real estate, having begun her career in 1987. She had taken a few breaks, throughout the years, to care for her ageing parents and is returning full-on to JJ Nate. Sonia’s other passion — health and medicine — also became a career path where she enjoyed great success in radiology, ultrasound, and mammography. Whether she was helping a Client through a transaction or a patient through a procedure, Sonia’s energy and personality puts anyone at ease.
