Margaret left Los Angeles to come to the Chicago area in 1986. While rattled by the infamous weather, she felt at home right away. That famous Midwestern hospitality was all it took to win her over.
She has lived in Kenilworth, Wilmette, and currently Winnetka. These lovely Chicago North Shore suburbs are just a short commute to downtown Chicago via the train or expressway (which she still calls freeways!)
After a long career in publishing and the graphic arts, she got her real estate license in 1998 and has been up and down the housing industry roller coaster. But the North Shore villages of Winnetka, Wilmette, Kenilworth, Glencoe, Glenview, and Evanston have been remarkably stable and survived the "bubble."
Margaret received the prestigious CRS designation (Certified Residential Specialist) - one that only 5% of realtors nationwide have been awarded. In addition, she is a GRI (Graduate of Realtor Institute) and ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative.)
She also has volunteered her time and experience to serve on the North Shore Real Estate Board of Professional Standardsm, which requires yearly re-certification.
Winnetka IL, Wilmette, Kenilworth, Glencoe, Highland Park and Evanston make Chicago's North Shore suburbs. Conveniently located near the commuter train and expressway, these beautiful villages offer the best living available in the Chicago area. Tree-lined streets, excellent schools, shopping, restaurants, forest preserves and a host of activities for all ages to enjoy. And best of all is Lake Michigan and its many beautiful beaches and parks.
Margaret's area of expertise is residential real estate including luxury, condos, townhouses, relocation, new construction and land. She has extensive knowledge of the local neighborhoods, schools, and a list of referrals for all your needs.
