Although I work with individuals and families of all ages, I provide expert guidance in real estate for seniors and Baby Boomers in Chicago and on the North Shore. I clearly understand the unique financial, emotional, and logistical issues of those 55+ when the time comes to downsize and/or “rightsize” and sell a home.
“I have worked hand-in-hand with both buyers and sellers to help them seamlessly navigate the complexities of what is not only a significant financial transaction, but also a very tangible and emotional part of their lives.”
Attention to detail, focus on customer service, and thorough, active listening skills are key attributes of any REALTOR®, and my degree in Psychology and previous career for 21 years as a flight attendant have prepared me to meet the challenges of ensuring a successful and happy real estate experience for my clients.
I believe in a balanced and harmonious life, and thoroughly enjoy fitness, nutrition, healthy cooking, tennis, biking, and spending relaxing time at the Chicago Botanic Gardens dabbling in natural photography.

Clients are saying:
"JoEllen worked hard for us, and while we may have had some disappointments along the way, she kept our spirits up and kept finding us possible properties that met our needs. Also, in showing us properties, she was always completely up-front about the pro’s and con’s of places—especially the “con’s,” which clearly meant she was looking out for our best interest. We finally have closed on a place we know we’ll love. Can’t recommend JoEllen enough!"
"JoEllen was such a joy to work with. She was knowledgeable, professional, and most importantly fun! As first time home buyers, she made the process easy to navigate and was truly a partner the whole way through."
"JoEllen Davis was absolutely incredible to work with. As first time homebuyers, she helped guide us through the process with patience, professionalism and unending drive to help us find a place that was perfect to us. From the rudimentary to the complicated, JoEllen broke down the jargon, situations, parameters and paperwork (and more paperwork) in a way that helped us fully understand and properly assess each stage in the homebuying process. She helped us assemble a solid team of professionals who, together with JoEllen, guided us through a difficult situation, and into a home that is more wonderful than we could have hoped for. We cannot recommend JoEllen highly enough."
"JoEllen is beyond amazing!!! We have partnered with her twice to sell and find homes as our family grew. Both times we sold within two weeks for more than we had expected. She is amazing at every facet of her work. I can't recommend her highly enough!!! If you're looking to sell or buy, definitely reach out to JoEllen!"
"Jo Ellen sold my condo in one week. Her staging and presentation was impeccable and I believe made the difference. As soon as it went under contract (again, 1 week) several condos went on the market due to the fast sell but without the same results. She set expectations throughout the process that proved to be precise. Probably sounds strange, but I"
