"Celebrating 27 years of Real Esate Success"

I have a long list of advocates and raving fans over the past 26 years. My sphere of marketing clients homes in Chicago and the North Shore, is where I specialize in the luxury and historic home market. I began my real estate life as a child of a renowned real estate developer, as I recall scouting out the next selected area for investment on Sunday afternoons, as early as 1968. Early in life, I learned the impact and power of vision, and a long term view and commitment to its attainment. I am focused on the goal and never waver from serving the needs of my clients. I aspire to achieve excellence in everything that I do. I have a long list of clients that are very successful in their own careers and they are always thankful for my honesty and commitment to their wellbeing. I have found that my knowledge of financial markets aligns well with my clients who are not only looking for a spectacular dream home, but also a wise investment that will appreciate. I have supported many clients in finding the home that is undervalued, as a good hedge against market fluctuations. A thorough value assessment is a part of my consultancy work that is unique. Clients walk away feeling confident that they have invested wisely. They trust my insights and me. Blair's brand: expertise, insight, foresight, and strong core values. The prize is 26 years of joy consulting with my very special clients, and lifelong friends.

Specialties: Selling LakeShore Historic Homes in Chicago, and the North Shore: Evanston, Wilmette, Glencoe, Kenilworth, Winnetka and Highland Park. Creating a plan, and seeing it through. Focus in my specialty. Determination is my fire. And your happiness is my satisfaction.

Blair grew up in Lincoln Park and lived there for 33 years before marrying and moving to Evanston's Lake Shore Historic District where she now resides with her husband of 20 years and their 3 teenage children.

Clients are saying:

"“I was fortunate enough to have Blair as my landlord and real estate agent. Blair was a very accommodating landlord. If there was ever an issue, it was easy and quick to reach her and have the problem fixed. Blair wants her tenants to have the best experience living in her apartment, and it was very easy to connect with her if we needed anything. When I had to move out of her 3rd floor apartment, my positive working relationship with her led me to choose her as my real estate broker. Blair’s extensive knowledge of Chicago and the surrounding area, along with her real estate expertise was the perfect combination. She matched all of my roommate and mine’s needs in order to find us the perfect apartment. Blair is organized, professional, and detail oriented. Walking through the apartments, Blair would ask the agent showing the apartment thoughtful and important questions which was extremely helpful as I am not as familiar with renting/buying property. Blair’s work ethic and real estate acumen will make you happy you worked with her. “"

As my listing agent, Blair was always the calm, steady hand guiding things forward--she never looses sight of the goals and objectives of any deal. In addition to her business skills, Blair is a person who brings a special warmth and generosity of spirit to all her interactions." Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, and High Integrity."

""Blair is an incredible real estate broker and an incredible person. We hired Blair to find our first home in the City many years ago and then hired her to sell it 5 years later when we decided to move to the suburbs. The results on both ends were fabulous. She is an expert in locating and selling property in the City, and knowledgeable in all of the different neighborhoods. She is trustworthy, kind, and a pleasure to be around. She makes the real estate transaction seamless and effortless. Now that the kids are older, we may look for a place back in the City and wouldn't think about hiring anyone but Blair. You are in great hands with her."Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, and High Integrity."

"I have known Blair for many years. She was tireless in our search for a home. I lost track of the number of homes we saw and she never tried to push us into making a decision. She also represented us in the sale of our condominium, which went quickly, in stark contrast to the time it took us to decide on a home. There were many units for sale at the same time but Blair managed to bring multiple bidders by highlighing the benefits of our unit. Blair is ethical and hard working.Top Qualities: Personable, Expert, and High Integrity."

"Blair impressed me with her thoughtful attention to detail, as she planned her marketing campaign for my home. As I was her first client at her new company that she founded, Historic Lakefront Estates, I saw that she had a clear vision of what she was creating. I appreciated her on-going communication and Blair's intelligent guidance as well as Blair's ability to position my home in the best light for a quick sale at the highest price the market would bear. After being on the market with another firm for over a year, I was very impressed with Blair's decisive strategic plan to get a multiple offer and sell it within the first 10 days of the listing. And the bonus was that she sold it for almost asking price as well! Blair was friendly, kind, thoughtful and showed me that she had a real passion for her business. I offer Blair my best wishes as she continues to exemplify the highest standards, integrity and caring for her client's best interests."
