"Simply Sensational Service"
Leslie Maguire's expertise in the North Shore real estate market, along with 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 $97 million in closed sales ) 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 connections and referrals she has made through her community service (schools, parks, caucus), sports (paddle, tennis) and business have enhanced her success in real estate. 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, energy, passion, professionalism, prompt responsiveness, attention to detail and tireless work ethic.
The vast majority of her client base consists of referrals of present and past clients and her multitude of community connections. "Simply Sensational Service" truly embodies what Leslie delivers to each and every one of her clients.
Leslie and her husband, Dan, have 3 children who live and work in downtown Chicago. She enjoys walking their dog, Casey, playing paddle and tennis and working out at SALT Fitness. Leslie loves to travel, try new restaurants and entertain friends and family.
I truly understand how important it is for my buyers and sellers to feel that they are receiving the attention they need and deserve throughout the entire process. My role as an agent is to make the emotional and stressful processes of buying and selling a home as seamless, painless and hopefully as enjoyable as possible. It is an honor and a privilege to represent my clients in the purchase and sale of their homes, and I take my role as their agent very seriously. It is my responsibility to guide them through every step of the process with honesty, integrity, attentiveness, insight, professionalism and enthusiasm in order to get my buyers and sellers the results they want and deserve. The greatest reward I receive as a real estate consultant is the referral and repeat clients who represent the majority of my business.
Clients are saying:
"Leslie was a great partner with us as we wanted to sell our house within 6 months during a soft market period. She provided great insight into the overall market, kept us constantly updated on other comparable listings and was very knowledgeable about what drove decision making for potential buyers in our community and price range. Leslie was very responsive to every question/request that we had and worked very hard for us to attract potential buyers. We were able to close on our house within our timeframe at what we considered a fair price, given the market, primarily due to Leslie's expertise, work ethic and commitment to our relationship."
"If there is a finer real estate agent than Leslie Maguire then she or he must walk on water. We have worked with Leslie for over 9 years. She has been insightful, patient with us, extremely knowledgeable about the housing market in our area, good at guiding us in the search, keeping track of the process and the progress of our search and buying of a new home. She is very good at figuring out the market and how to negotiate in buying. Once we had the contract accepted, she kept track of the documents needed, the lawyers involved, etc. She has also helped us immensely on the selling side as well. Best of all, she has a great sense of humor."
"Leslie helped us find and buy our home in a limited period of time while we were living out of the country. Leslie's a great communicator- her ability to efficiently understand our home needs and desires prior to meeting us for the first home search visit allowed us to maximize our time spent looking at homes. Her attention to detail, lovely personality, analytical skills, negotiating power and knowledge of the market allowed us a smooth and quick process in the purchase of our home. Leslie's advocacy for us did not stop after the closing on our house as she continues to communicate with us and assist us with "new home" issues! Leslie is our Real Estate partner and friend for as long as we reside in Chicago. We highly recommend her!"
"Leslie was an amazing realtor to work with. She has the confidence that you want when selling your home as well as the expertise. She is so friendly, easy to work with, and responsive. Her communication and knowledge exceeded our expectations."
"Leslie was the most attentive realtor we could have asked for. She truly went above and beyond to respond to all questions we had, to negotiate strongly for us and provide resources (lenders, attorneys, etc...) we needed to purchase the house. She responded after-hours and was willing to meet us any day of the week. She made us feel like we were her only client. Prior to the move, she sent a list of contacts that she had personally used or had relationships with, and we used the inspector, contractor, movers, etc that she suggested. Every part of this process was comfortable and less stressful with her."
