Expertise in Different Types of Markets
As a full time real estate broker for twenty- five years, Jeanne is highly experienced in maneuvering through all kinds of economic real estate markets. She knows how to think creatively and solve problems before they develop. Saving houses from foreclosure, negotiating short sales, writing contract -for-sale agreements, or handling regular sales is all part of her forte. Experienced with rentals, co-ops, condos, townhomes, 2 - 4 flats, single family homes -- from new construction to vintage, Jeanne has the knowledge and patience to help in any type of transaction. Overall, she works tirelessly, reacts quickly, and adapts easily to changing markets to provide the optimal experience to home buyers and home sellers.
Instills Confidence and Loyalty
She systematically guides her buyers and sellers through each stage of the selling/purchasing process to make sure they are confident in their decisions. She is quick to obtain any information wanted or needed from the building/zoning departments, to scout the schools for special education and program needs, to gather park district and community information to make sure her clients are well informed. One seller and consequent buyer was so impressed, he took out an ad for her in the local paper to show his appreciation for her attention to detail and her dedicated personalized service. Jeanne's clients and their business are important to her and she shows it. As one former buyer stated, "Jeanne had all the information I wanted before I even thought of it myself."
Jeanne is unique in being well versed not only in her own local North Shore market area, all along Lake Michigan, but also in Chicago, the Northwestern suburbs, and the Northern suburbs.There is no community out-of-her-reach. She takes pride in researching the communities and offering top service no matter where she goes. She knows that it is important and easier for buyers to work with one agent they trust in all the areas they want to explore, and she devotes herself to providing that service. Chicago, Evanston, Wilmette, Kenilworth, Winnetka, Glencoe, Highland Park, Lake Forest, Lake Bluff, Waukegan, Northbrook, Deerfield, Glenview, Lincolnshire, Palatine, Mount Prospect, Libertyville, Buffalo Grove, Long Grove, Hoffman Estates, Barrington, Bartlett, Hinsdale, and Belvidere are just a few of the many places she has listed and sold properties.
Jeanne appreciates the special requests and needs of senior citizens who want to include other family members in the sale or purchase of a home or the desire of young people, buying their first home, who want to include their parents in the process. She happily takes the extra time to keep all family members informed of the market and purchasing/selling process. Buying or selling a house is a major life decision so she welcomes the opportunity to customize the process to suit everyone's needs.
As a former high school teacher with a master's degree from Indiana University, she believes in providing her clients with a source of knowledge, not pressure. She was "Rookie of the Year" her first year in real estate and has consistently been a top producer ever since. She has been rated in the top 3% of agents companywide, is a certified "E-agent," and a member of Baird & Warner's Founder's Club. Jeanne is appreciative that her clients have selected her to be a Five Star Professional Real Estate Agent for four years (2011 through 2014) as printed in Chicago Magazine. She has lived on the North Shore for over 35 years and has two grown children who attended New Trier High School. She looks forward to working for and with you.
Jeanne was always available and she went above and beyond. My family thinks she is fantastic and we would work with her again. She is professional, smart, and very patient. Personally, she is a pleasure to work with and she works very hard to make a sale go smoothly
I would like to express my appreciation for the work performed on my behalf by Jeanne. About four months ago, Jeanne called me at my request regarding a client she was representing. Although her client chose another house, I was able to experience her professional approach to the assignment. Later on, she responded to my desire to look at houses for sale. She had all the information I wanted before I even thought of it myself. As a result, when I decided to make a change in my listing agent, I chose Jeanne. I really don't know why, but I had more showings in the first 3 weeks of my listing with Jeanne than I had in the prior 3 months! Plus I got good feedback. My listing was important to her and she showed it.
Thank you very much for all your effort, Jeanne.
'You made a new and frightening process a lot more pleasant. You helped us to fully understand the process and to be confident in the decisions we made. We knew from your actions that we were important to you, and for that we especially thank you. We will definitely refer you to our friends and family.' --Mark & Katherine
'Thank you again for everything - for your patience, kindness and understanding. Each day I enter our home and realize how much of a miracle it is to own it! I can't tell you how much it meant to us that you helped us each step of the way from selling our house quickly to purchasing our current home!' Anne & Lee
So impressed! We have moved several times and never had an agent who was so detail oriented and worked so hard to enable our house to sell quickly. I know your work ethic is the reason our house sold while neighboring houses didn't. Susan
