Steven Good, a leader in the Chicago real estate community has died; he was found shot to death on Monday, the victim of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said. He was 52.
As most people involved in the Chicago real estate community know, Steve was the chairman of Sheldon Good & Co., a 40+ year-old firm founded by his father. The firm has strong roots in real estate auctions, but had somewhat recently branched into brokering sales as well. Steve was well known for having taken the company to the national stage, boasting prestigious clients such as Donald Trump.
Steve was a strong leader in the community, assuming positions of responsibility in the National Association of REALTORS®, the Chicago Association of REALTORS®, and John Marshall Law School Center for Real Estate.
I had the pleasure of meeting Steve on a couple of occasions. He was, from first impression, obviously a kind and gracious man. He spoke knowledgeably and unreservedly with everyone who sought his attention. He leaves a large hole in the real estate community of Chicago.
