For over 20 years, I have worked in Lake County real estate along the North Shore helping clients buy, sell, stage and improve their homes.

Much of my work with Sellers is during the weeks and months prior to the first showing. In addition to reviewing comparable home sales history, I help clients see their home from a buyers’ point of view. I am fairly hands-on as we rearrange furniture and accessorize often without spending money. The "before and after" photos are amazing. I also advise on what items to store or toss, and refer contacts for repairs, painting, carpeting and house cleaning. Depending on how long a seller has lived in a home, several visits may be made and the “to do” list is re-prioritized. 

My goal with Buyers has always been to make a “Smart Buy”. To find a home with a good location that needs little work but offers the best resale. Over the last few years, my transferees with Abbott Labs, Kraft Heinz, AbbVie or Hospira have been even quicker to make improvements and repairs, sometimes before they move in, so they can enjoy the changes sooner.


Starting in 1994, I earned several sales awards while Iwith CENTURY 21® including the ultimate CENTURY 21® Centurion award, the corporate equivalent to the Emmy or Oscar which I earned almost every year.  But I am just as proud to have earned several of our top customer service awards over the years within our office based on client feedback compiled from surveys sent to families following each closing. My office merged with Baird & Warner in 2017. BW is one of the oldest family owned real estate companies in Chicago and is a top selling company with 29 local area offices. 


In June 2006, I finished my MBA at Lake Forest Graduate School of Management, during which I elected to take three of the international trips offered to Europe, Asia and Brazil with an emphasis in International Marketing. We competed in teams not unlike the television show, "The Apprentice", solving real business problems for real companies overseas. The experience was unbelievable and took us to London, Berlin, Warsaw, Cambridge, Beijing, Bangkok, Rio & Sau Paulo.


I think I am lucky in that I am one of those people who get to do what they love for a living. I enjoy working with people, solving problems, doing research and playing detective. A decade in advertising and sales has prepared me to do a better job at marketing and negotiating for my clients. My passion for home, garden and architecture gives me great ideas to “stage” homes so they show their best. My experiences from moving twelve times with two children and living in six states has given me first-hand knowledge of the stresses and challenges families face when uprooting their lives. 

I look forward to helping you buy or sell and walking you through a stress-free closing.  I have helped some families in as many as five transactions. I know what I am doing and do it more than full-time and will personally handle your closing from start to finish. Please check out my website at or call my cell anytime: 847-814-7895.

"We recently sold our house in Dec 2018. The house had been on the market for nearly 10 mos. with another agent prior to asking Elizabeth to jump in and help. I was concerned about leaving the house empty for another winter and really needed the house to sell. Living across the country, I really relied on Elizabeth to handle very specific details in getting the house improved for relisting. She came through masterfully and timely and was able to get this house improved in key ways to make it show well after it becoming stale for 10 mos. I got 2 offers on the same day after just 3 weeks of listing with her. She handled the entire process very smoothly and worked with our relocation company to bring this house to a close in less than 30 days. I wish I would have discovered her much earlier. Highly recommend Elizabeth for the sale of your home."

"My wife and I had a superlative experience working with not only Elizabeth Bryant, but also all of the other people she brought to the experience. Our lender, legal team, and title team were all excellent. The entire process was fast and flawless. Thanks! John and Anna"

"We listed our house with three other realtors and were lucky to have a showing, 5-8 in a year. With Elizabeth, we averaged up to 40 in a year. Our subdivision is not an easy area to sell because of high taxes and the school district. Our house sold for the highest price in our subdivision in the last 6 years. Elizabeth is always available for advice. She has people to stage your house at no cost to her clients. Now that our house has sold, we feel like we are losing a dear friend. In a nutshell, we think Elizabeth is the best and highly recommend her."

"Elizabeth helped sell our home. She was excellent to work with. Before we listed our home, she spent as significant amount of time with us getting our older home ready for sale. She worked with us to make many small improvements in our home that would have gone unnoticed by us. Once our home was listed, she was very proactive about keeping us updated on all progress.

What we most appreciated was that, whereas Elizabeth was managing the sale/purchase of a good number of homes, she never made us feel that she had limited time for us.

We would work with Elizabeth again in a heartbeat."

"I recently had the great pleasure of enlisting Elizabeth Bryant (from Century 21, Kreuser and Seiler) as the realtor for the purchase of my new home.

It was very apparent from our first meeting and continuously throughout the process of purchasing my home, that Elizabeth was an individual at the top ranks of her profession, and I have felt incredibly fortunate to find the best of the best to help me with this important decision.

Elizabeth is extremely knowledgeable and in each perspective home we viewed she pointed out the pros and cons and noticed important things I’d never have thought of in the brief time spent in a home showing.

I felt that Elizabeth understood my personal needs and assisted me with her expert evaluations as to how each home we viewed might meet or fall short of what would make me personally the happiest.

Further, Elizabeth was extremely patient with my search for the perfect home and always kept my interests first and foremost at every step of the process; I never felt rushed or pushed to make a decision.

After finally selecting my ideal home, Elizabeth was always there for me, explaining all of the details of the purchase process; negotiation, closing, and advising me as to how to get the best deal on my new home. I am certain that I would never have done so well and nor felt so comfortable with any other realtor. She truly is a professional one in a million.

After my home purchase Elizabeth was an incredible resource for references on reliable repair professionals; each of her recommendations, based on years of experience and client feedback, was far superior to the typical plumbers, electricians and contractors I’d hired myself over the years.

The entire home process considered, I could not have found a better professional realtor than Elizabeth Bryant and would wholeheartedly give my recommendation of her to my best friend and relative."
