Contact me

1821 Benson Ave. Evanston, IL 60201



Ranked as one of the Top Ten producing agents in the North Shore with over $185 million in sales. Mindy Shea and her husband, Don are two of the most sought-after advisers to clients in the North Shore. She and her husband formed the Shea Group in 2006 specializing in the sale of new and existing homes in Evanston, Wilmette, Kenilworth and Winnetka.

Mindy and Don bring an unusual set of skills to the business. Both are graduates of Georgetown University with Don holding an MBA from Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management and Mindy having completed her graduate work at University of Chicago. Upon graduating, they both spent years in advertising and marketing for such companies as Foote Cone and Belding, Saatchi and Saatchi NY, DDB Needham and Riddell.

With this expertise in marketing, market analysis and negotiation, the Sheas bring a more informed approach to the buying and selling side of every real estate transaction. As a result of this, within 3 years in the Real Estate business, Mindy had become a member of her firm’s prestigious President’s Club and is consistently one of the top agents in the entire Chicago region holding the number one spot in her previous firm’s largest Evanston office. Mindy and Don are committed to providing the highest level of service to their clients.

The Sheas are 25 year residents of the North Shore. They have three children attending Northwestern, Brown University and Connecticut College. They are avid sailors with all of the children competing at the national level and have sailed for the US Sailing Team and on the Olympic Development team. They also enjoy racing on the Great Lakes and have completed several Chicago to Mackinac races with their grandfather on the GL70, Windancer. Don has served as president of the High School Sailing Association for the past few years.


Clients are saying...

"We had an exceptional experience with Don and would absolutely recommend him. We were looking to buy a home in Evanston or Wilmette and found Don to be exceedingly knowledgeable about both areas. He listened well, heard what we needed, and was patient as we went through home after home (upwards of 50, actually). He also gave his honest opinion when asked, but was never intrusive in our decision-making. Don recommended an inspector who was absolutely fantastic. Not only was he obviously outstanding at what he does, but he was honest and forthcoming with information. It was a fantastic recommendation. I would recommend Don highly and without hesitation to anyone looking to buy on the North Shore. We had a fantastic experience!"

"I would like to share my experience with Don Shea. Over the last 6 months, my fiance and I have gotten to know Don, and he has been an outstanding real estate agent. He has gotten us in to numerous homes, and when we walk in to a home, he is quick to point out any flaws and where we could make improvements on the home. He has excellent knowledge in identifing those issues and having a good estimate at what it would take to fix that issue (to either reduce the offer price or how much it would cost us to fix). Don has been patient with us (first time buyers) and has been great at educating us of both the small and big things in the housing market. We met with several different real estate agents, and once we met Don, we knew we had landed on a great Real Estate Agent, but more importantly a great person that is open, honest and willing to take the time to find you the right place that you can call home when you walk in"

"I have worked with 5 agents over the last 6 months. Don was by far the best. Most knowledgeable, professional, courteous, high sense of urgency, thorough...can't say enough. We will use him again and we will refer him any time we can."
