Leslie Maguire’s extensive North Shore market expertise, strong communication skills, excellent interpretation and analysis of data, expert negotiating skills and enthusiasm for her clients and her profession enable her to consistently achieve outstanding success (over 50 million in closed sales volume) since she began her career in residential real estate in 2000. Leslie and her family have resided in Winnetka since 1985, and the extensive list of con... nections and referrals she has made through her community service (schools, parks, caucus), sports (paddle, tennis) and business have enhanced her success in real estate. Many of her listings have sold before hitting the MLS and she has found her buyers homes before they hit the MLS. The @properties @gent app is a major component of her success in uniting buyers and sellers during the pre-market period. “Simply Sensational Service” is what Leslie provides to her clients, colleagues and fellow professionals. Leslie is truly an agent who loves what she does, and she is well respected by her clients, fellow professionals and colleagues for her integrity, honesty, professionalism, perseverance and tireless work ethic.
Leslie and her husband, Dan, have resided in Winnetka for almost 30 years. Their 3 children have all graduated from college and live in Chicago. Leslie loves walking their rescue dog, Casey, the Dailey Method, paddle and tennis, and she enjoys entertaining, trying new restaurants and traveling.
Praise for Leslie’s role as the listing agent: “The business of buying and selling real estate is greatly enhanced by proven, effective, and experienced professionals. Leslie Maguire combines all of these skills with an easy and efficient manner. My wife and I found working with Leslie not only enjoyable, but encouraging and realistic. Leslie has very keen sense of the market and her guidance in negotiations is thoughtful and balanced. Leslie is exceptionally well regarded by her peers, which unquestionably adds to her success in difficult markets. You will not find a better advocate for your pursuits in North Shore real estate” Mark and Christie O., Winnetka
Praise for Leslie’s role as the buyer’s agent:
As technology continues to transform the way people shop for new homes, we found that it was critical to have a well-respected and well-connected real estate agent to give us an edge in an extremely competitive market. For my wife and me, Leslie was just that person. Leslie has excellent knowledge of the North Shore real estate market, is pleasant, hard-working, patient, and is motivated by the genuine desire to help her clients find a home that they love. Leslie worked with us for several months while we gradually developed a sense of what we wanted in a home. In the end, Leslie used her connections to help us purchase a home we love at a reasonable price before the house was listed. We would not have gotten such a great house without Leslie’s assistance. We would recommend her highly.
Craig S. and Jean R., Chicago
Regardless of whether I am working with buyers or sellers, I believe in an honest approach. I won't sell you a house just to sell a house- it has to be a house I feel is a great fit for my clients. For buyers, I will find you the right home in the right neighborhood that will be perfect for your needs. If you don't love where you live, then I haven't done my job. For sellers, I will give you an honest assessment of what needs to be done to best present your home in the market, and I will give you an analytical assessment of where your home best needs to be positioned to maximize your sales potential in minimal time. My goal is to make the buying and selling of real estate as seamless and painless as possible. I understand that buying and selling a home is one of the most stressful and emotional experiences anyone can go through, and it is my pleasure to guide you through the process with honesty, integrity, insight, professionalism, and enthusiasm. The greatest rewards I receive as a real estate consultant are the referrals and repeat clients who represent the majority of my business.
