"I always want the best for my clients" - Colleen McGinnis

A real estate veteran of over 20 years and a long time North Shore resident, Colleen McGinnis has both the experience and the devotion to real estate to get deals done in any market. Colleen is sensitive to the fact that buying and selling a home is a very personal experience, and strives to make the process a seamless experience.

Colleen works with both buyers and sellers and is an expert in negotiations, having dealt with numerous types of transactions over her lengthy career. Colleen thrives on the strategy behind the deal, and has never put her clients in jeopardy of missing out on what they desire.

"From the initial meeting Colleen was prepared, eager and attentive.  She was straightforward in her assessment of our home and its potential value and presented us with a concise plan.  She clearly knew her market."

A people-person, Colleen's clients are always her first priority. She understands the business, and she knows how other agents operate. Connections are important to her, be they with clients or others in the industry. Hard work has earned Colleen respect from the real estate community, as well as a solid reputation with other agents.

"Colleen sees the big picture and can keep a deal going forward, regardless of the level of professionalism on the other side of the transaction.  A true professional, she is strictly business with a warm and patient client-focused practice."

A lover of homes, real estate was always a field that intrigued Colleen before she made it her career. For Colleen, the root of it all is that she really believes in what she does. Whether it's volunteering, teaching children or selling houses, she will throw her heart and soul into whatever she focuses on.  

"We strongly recommend Colleen McGinnis as a professional and reliable realtor.  We have used her services during the buying and selling of several of our homes.  She is efficient and very knowledgeable, especially in the pricing of houses within the current market.  She is easy to work with, very professional, and always open to questions of any kind."

Mission Statement
My goal for each client is to make them feel as if they are the only people I am working with and that they have my full attention at all times. I am always accessible when my clients are in need, and my job is to do the best I can for you, no matter what it takes. I understand that buying or selling a home is a personal endeavor, and my goal is for my clients to always trust me completely, and know that their best interest is the only thing that is important.


Clients are saying...

"We have known Colleen since 2002 when she represented the sellers of the home we purchased at 543 Brier St., Kenilworth. When we moved into that house, Colleen became our neighbor and friend. When we decided to sell that house, we wanted Colleen to represent us. Colleen ultimately represented us in the sale of 534 Brier and in the purchase of our current home at 530 Golf Lane, Lake Forest. Throughout the entire process, Colleen was the consummate professional and she upheld the highest ethical standards.We decided to try to sell 543 Brier in the worst market of our generation. Our plan was to take advantage of the market by trading up, but it was not going to be easy. As our agent, Colleen always kept our best interests as her number 1 priority, and she was extremely reputable .she kept our buyer engaged, and got him back for the deal that we did close. She worked hard to show us opportunities and alternatives, and when we needed an advocate to take a hard-line position, Colleen stepped up.Ultimately, we accomplished our end goal, and we are very happy with our new home. We have nothing but good things to say about Colleen and the job she did for us."

"Tom and I enjoyed working with Colleen in the sale of our home. She was well-prepared in a rapidly changing real estate environment and helped guide us to the appropriate timing and pricing of our home. In addition, she was tenacious but realistic in her negotiations and was able to secure us a solid offer in just 9 days. She was with us every step of the way from the initial listing to the final closing. I would highly recommend Colleen for her professionalism and enthusiasm. She got the job done!Marcia D"
