Title: President and Managing Broker
Company: The Apartment Source
Location: Chicago, Illinois, United States
Tyson J. Schutz, President and Managing Broker at the Apartment Source, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Business for dedication, achievements, and leadership in real estate brokerage.
Since 2011, Mr. Schutz has found success as the president and managing broker at the Apartment Source, a full-service brokerage dedicated to connecting renters with their dream properties in the metro area of Chicago, Illinois. After graduating, magna cum laude, from Dominican University with a Bachelor of Arts in philosophy and sociology in 2008, he spent two years traveling the world teaching English to high school and college students in Vietnam, China and New Zealand. When he returned to the United States in 2010, Mr. Schutz began looking for a career that would allow him the time to pursue his avocation — professional music — and play shows at night.
Attracted by the flexibility that the real estate industry could offer him, Mr. Schutz joined the Apartment Source as a leasing agent, became a licensed realtor in 2014 and currently holds a managing broker’s license. Between 2013 and 2020, he also served as a principal consultant for TMG Management outside of his work with the Apartment Source. Recently, he purchased the business from his former partner, becoming the sole owner of the Apartment Source, and has plans to expand to include at least six new offices outside of Illinois by the end of 2021, with a full suite of programming designed to add value to communities. Mr. Schutz attributes his success to persistence, a belief in delayed gratification and a certain relentlessness, advising others to “take the time to do it right” in order to find their paths.
