Vivian Kahler

Vivian graduated from University of Hawaii with a B.S. in Hotel and Tourism Management and worked for Hilton and Aston Resorts in Hawaii and Hyatt in Chicago.  A real estate professional for more than 16 years, Vivian is known for integrity, diplomacy, energy and sincerity in all her dealings. In her tenure in the business, she has first and foremost strived to be someone in whom her clientele and colleagues can put their trust and faith in. Every transaction, she believes, is always about her customer. “You are the driver, I am the passenger who’s there to guide, educate, and provide the best service possible.”

Why I’m Different

Keys to Vivian’s success has also been the result of her patient demeanor and dedicated work ethic. She knows how to listen, is generous in offering information, and more importantly, knows when to stop talking. Her main intention is to understand her client’s needs and build a relationship that will last over the course of time. When orchestrating deals for her buyers and sellers, Vivian is assertive and effective without being too aggressive. While she is a strong negotiator and advocate for her clients, she is just as much a compassionate, friendly, humorous partner who eases a process that can often be quite stressful.  Prior to entering real estate, Vivian enjoyed a career in hotel management in Hawaii & Chicago in both corporate and vacation resort sectors of the industry. Her comfort level spans serving everyone from high-profile corporate clients to individuals and families looking to find their perfect home.  By making an industry leap to real estate from hotel management, Vivian found professional success at a high level, selling over $13 million in homes her first year. Vivian has worked multiple aspects of the industry representing buyers, sellers, renters, builders, architects, developers and investors in both the residential and commercial market.  

In My Free Time

When not assisting clients, Vivian enjoys spending time with her husband Aaron and their English Bulldog, Ivan, entertaining their friends, traveling to Hawaii, catching up on their latest Netflix series, getting her husband to come to Pilates and relaxing at their home in Aurora, Illinois.
