Runa Mitra Howard

Real Estate Professional in Chicago, Illinois United States

Runa comes to Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty after many years of working for multiple Fortune 100 companies and some of the most iconic brands in the world. Throughout her career, she has had the opportunity to build her skills in various functions, providing her with a holistic view of running a business. Having held leadership roles in each company she has worked for, she also gained the skills required to communicate effectively with people across all levels of hierarchy.

She brings these skills with her to real estate in order to provide her clients with a superb and unique customer experience. She is process-oriented, analytical, an effective communicator, and has impeccable follow-through – all in order to build trust and prove to her clients that she is the right person for the job. 

Runa’s interest in real estate arose as she toured homes with her parents when she was 6 years old. Her love of real estate was solidified when she sold her first condo in the suburbs of Chicago on her own, and she had been circuitously working towards a career in real estate since then. The thrill of closing the deal and her entrepreneurial spirit were the driving forces behind her move from the comforts of corporate life to the exciting world of real estate.

Runa was born in the US to East Indian parents and speaks fluent Bengali. Her early visits to India instilled in her a love of travel and of learning. When she is not working, she loves to spend time with her husband, two children, and two dogs, visit new countries, read, dabble in amateur photography, refresh her French and Spanish speaking skills, or just learn something new.

She currently lives in West Town where she is involved in her local community and serves as the president of her condo association. Runa has a B.S. in Computer Engineering from Case Western Reserve University and an M.B.A. with a focus on Finance and Economics from University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business. She is also Six Sigma Black Belt certified.
