After growing up in South Africa and Switzerland, Robert Sevim moved to Chicago at the age of 17 with a determination to continue his education. His determination tends to be a trait that stands out. In fact, it was actually a friend of his that noticed his work potential and encouraged him to look into real estate. Now, as executive vice president of Savills Studley Chicago office, Sevim is grateful that he did and he’s never looked back since.
His move to Chicago happened just after visiting the United States once. He went on to pursue his undergraduate studies and played tennis for Northwestern.
