Hello and Welcome!

As a Lake County resident for over 25 years, I am deeply rooted in the communities in which I live and work. As a mother, business owner, volunteer and very active member of my local church, relationships and service are central to my life.  Real estate is my passion and I haven't felt, throughout my entire career, that I've gone to "work" a single day.

I bring to my clients over 23 years of experience in financial services and related industries, 13 years of personal experience as a real estate investor and landlord as well as a professional certification in Home Staging & Redesign. I understand all aspects of the residential real estate industry and bring to you superior professional skills and strong business accumen including closing multi-million dollar contracts, project managment, public speaking, executive-level negotiations and collaborating, combined with a laser focus on delivering excellence for each and every client.

I have lived in the greater Chicagoland area my entire life including Oak Park, Frankfort, Mt. Prospect, Mundelein, Long Grove, Vernon Hills, and Gurnee. And just like Baird & Warner, I call Chicagoland "home".

As a member of the Baird & Warner family, Chicagoland and Lake County's #1 real estate company, I also bring to you my trusted team of experienced professionals to aid each client, whether buying or selling, toward the outcome of a seemless and successful transaction. My team includes attorneys, inspectors, lenders, title insurance, contractors, home warranty coverage, home staging, and insurance providers all of whom I've worked repeatedl with, and who I know can help insure superb commuication and dependability throughout the entire transaction process.

My primary objective is to provide each and every client with an unparalleled, stress-free and unique real estate experience while working to secure the best price and terms in line with accomplishing my client's specific goals in the shortest amount of time. As their trusted advocate, my clients' best interest is first and foremost and I work tirelessly on each of my client's behalf.

Please give me a call and see for yourself the difference me and my team of experts will make for you in your real estate pursuits!  My goal is to SHATTER YOUR EXPECTATIONS!!!

Please give me a call. It would be my pleasure to serve you!




163 S. Slusser SOLD
I just wanted to thank you for all of your help in the sale of my house.  This was an extremely difficult time for me and my children.  My husband of the past 30 years walked out leaving me with all the responsibilities of our five children and the house we had called "home" for the past 22 years.
When the time came that I could no longer keep what we had always termed "Our Forever House",  the pain of selling was almost too deep for me to bear.
Frances, you were so understanding and caring.  You held my hand on the days I cried, you held my hand on the days I laughed and you held my hand on the day I sold.
I can't thank you enough  for the support you gave me both emotionally and professionally.  Your attention to all of the details from the listing, to the open houses, to the negotiations and all of the things in between could not have been improved upon.
I recommend you to anyone who wants to sell especially for those Homeowners who find selling a less than joyful experience.
I am blessed to have had you represent me.
Very, very sincerely,
Bonnie J. Richtman

I have bought about ten homes over the years (and sold the same)... Frances Simons is by far, the most professional agent I've ever worked with.  On every level, she went above and beyond... Always available - always responsive - always looking out for my best interests. 


I greatly appreciate the service and support Frances provided on my buy and sell! – Dr. Francis Ardito

"Frances was a lifesaver when we relocated from over 3,000 miles away. She helped us find the perfect home for our family before we even got there. She was very knowledgable about the schools and community too. She worked tirelessly to get us what we needed. We are very pleased with where we are and are so grateful to her."  The Flynn Family, Gurnee

"Wow...the pictures DO look fabulous!  In fact, the girls didn't even think it was our house at first.  Thanks again for getting such a professional job done."
