  BARRINGTON, Ill. (Dec. 4, 2017) —The Luby Group | @properties, an established real estate team serving Chicago’s North and Northwest suburbs, has announced a new partnership with Let It Be Us, a non-profit organization devoted to the adoption, education and support of children in Illinois foster care. 

   As a philanthropic supporter and partner of Let it Be Us the family owned Luby Group will donate a portion of every sales commission to the organization, and promote Let it Be Us programs and events using the company’s print, digital and social media vehicles.    

    “We’re very excited about our new relationship with Let It Be Us and the opportunity to help support projects and activities that maximize the prospect of finding homes for children in Illinois foster care,” says Suzanne Luby, who leads the Barrington area real estate group. 

   Commenting on its new affiliation with The Luby Group, Let It Be Us founder and executive director Susan McConnell noted that “It’s always very rewarding to partner with new entities and people who demonstrate the care and concern needed to make a meaningful difference in the lives of children in foster care.  We know we will reach a number of new supporters throughout the Northwest suburbs due to The Luby Group’s reach.”

   McConnell, who has worked with the State of Illinois for more than a decade to help find “forever families” for children in Illinois foster care, launched the Let It Be Us organization in 2014.  

   Among its many initiatives, the Barrington non-profit uses media campaigns and foster family recruitment events, provides mentorship and summer camp grants for children in Illinois foster care, and manages an on-line photography exhibit of children awaiting adoption called Heart Gallery of Illinois.

    As a partner to Let It Be Us, the Luby Group will participate in foster parent recruitment and other events, and receive exposure as a local donor, supporter and community business member.

   In addition to founder, Suzanne Luby, The Luby Group includes licensed real estate professionals Jim Luby, Liz Luby and Melissa Khamkhounnavong. Licensed in 2000, Suzanne’s son Jim has worked extensively as a residential real estate broker in both Chicago and the North & Northwest Suburbs. Suzanne’s daughter Liz joined the group in 2004 following 10 years as a TV news reporter/producer. Prior to serving as a broker for The Luby Group | @properties, Melissa Khamkhounnavong worked with her husband to buy, restore, stage and sell homes in the Northwest suburbs and was involved in a number of other entrepreneurial ventures, including IT sales.

  The Luby Group is dedicated to serving real estate clients with its signature blend of professionalism, honesty and expertise. A reflection of their own family values, The Luby Group places the highest priority on strong relationships, communication, hard work, and a commitment to excellence.
