Eliana Leiva is an established realtor with over 30 years of experience. Her journey into real estate began with a passion for people and a desire to balance her career aspirations with the joy of motherhood in her early 20s.
Originally from Barranquilla, Colombia, Eliana moved to the US at age 13, quickly adapting to new environments. She fell in love with Chicago upon arrival, and over the years, her passion for the city deepened as she explored its diverse landscape. With a natural affinity for people and a passion for helping others, she found her calling in guiding clients through the process of finding their dream homes.
Throughout her career, Eliana has raised three beautiful children—Nicole, Mike, and Cristian—while successfully navigating the real estate industry. She takes pride in not only being a mother but also a business partner to her husband Michael, a mortgage lender. Together, they enjoy collaborating on deals and helping people achieve their homeownership dreams.
Currently residing in Long Grove with her husband and their beloved Shih Tzu, Teddy, Eliana has been an integral part of the Jane Lee Team for almost 15 years. She values the team’s diverse clientele, effortlessly bridging cultural divides with her fluency in both Spanish and English.
With dedication and warmth evident in every interaction, Eliana is committed to serving the Chicagoland community through her real estate expertise. When not busy showing homes, Eliana can be found relaxing poolside in the summer, catching a HIIT boxing class or Zumba workout, watching telenovelas, or hosting dinner parties for friends and family. Family means everything to her, and any time outside of work is typically reserved for the people she loves most.
Eliana takes immense pride in serving her clients and looks forward to continuing to grow her career and brand for many years to come.
