Hello and Welcome!
As a Lake County resident for over 25 years, I am deeply rooted and specialize in the communities in which I live and work. 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 mother, business owner, volunteer and very active member of my local church, relationships and service are core to my life values. And...because real state is my passion, I haven't felt, throughout my entire career, that I've gone to "work" a single day!! How many people can say that? I am truly blessed to do what I LOVE!!!
I bring to my clients over 23 years of experience in financial services and related industries, 15 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 acumen including negotiating and closing multi-million dollar outsourcing contracts, end-to-end project management, and strategic thinking and collaboration, combined with a laser focus on delivering excellence for each and every client.
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 seamless, stress-free 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 together with time and again, and who I know can help insure superb communication 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 my team of experts and I will make for you in your real estate pursuits! It would be my pleasure to represent you!
My Goal is to "Shatter Your Expectations"!!!
"Choosing Frances Simons is, by far, the best decision we made when we relocated to the Chicago area. She was the most conscientious, responsive, detail-oriented, friendly, and resourceful agent with which we have ever worked. We moved here from Colorado and didn't know anyone. We had no idea where to begin to look, until we began working with Frances. Our first realtor was inexperienced and slow to respond. Frances was not only great at finding our home, but helped us with so many other things. Not only is Frances wonderful, but her agency is so supportive and professional. Frances has won numerous awards for her exceptional success and for her work ethic.
Because Frances has lived and worked in this area for many years, she was able to direct us to cultural spots, great restaurants, professional networks, and great places to hike and bike. Not only did she find us a great house, but helped us make it a home. Anyone interested in a masterful real estate agent should look no further than Frances. She is a gem and I highly recommend her."
