Mike and Marcia Vecchione - The Power of Two
Married for 34 years, husband and wife Mike and Marcia Vecchione have over 36 years of combined experience in real estate. Mike began his career as a residential agent in 1989, after spending 10 years as a commercial agent, and Marcia joined him in 1997. They have been a hard-working and successful team ever since.
The real estate bug bit Mike first, as he has always had a passion for houses and construction. Formerly a broker/manager and owner of his own company, Mike eventually decided to focus strictly on working with buyers and sellers. Previously a graphic designer, Marcia originally entered the industry to give Mike support, and found that her creative spirit came in handy when preparing homes for the market and helping clients visualize all the possibilities in a listing. Additionally, she has since blossomed into a seasoned agent continually ranked in the top percent of her previous North Shore office. The team is also consistently ranked among the top 100 agents in the North Shore, and in the top 5% in the nation.
Mike and Marcia have lived in Lincolnshire since 1996, where they remain active members of the community. From 2003 through 2008, Mike served as president of the Lincolnshire Community Association (LCA), while Marcia has been a volunteer for the Riverside Foundation in Lincolnshire - a residence and training facility for developmentally disabled adults - for over 10 years. Their daughter Nicole went through the area school system, and is now enjoying college at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Though the team's clients have bought and sold more than 100 homes in Lincolnshire, each agent has extensive knowledge about surrounding communities up and down the North Shore, including Deerfield, Buffalo Grove and Northbrook.
Experts with both buyers and sellers, Mike and Marcia are capable of handling any type of client. Though industry veterans, they possess a youthful energy that enables them to connect with all age groups and walks of life. Having gone through the process of building their own custom home a few years ago, Mike and Marcia have developed a knack for new construction. They have also worked with first-time buyers, relocation clients, empty nesters and everyone else that has come their way.
The beauty of the team mentality is that each has a unique feature to bring to the agent/client relationship. Mike's vast experience makes him extremely knowledgeable about the industry, and he is analytical, honest and direct. Marcia is the creative people-lover of the two, and she provides an in-house staging service to help clients properly prepare their homes to get sold in a timely manner. Mike is the keen negotiator, and Marcia knows all about the communities and what will appeal to each individual. Both are patient and honest, and well respected in the real estate industry. Honesty and integrity are a must, and the team is not afraid to advise clients to pass on a home they believe isn't the right fit. Most importantly, both Mike and Marcia truly care about their clients, who always come first.
Our goal is to provide our clients with the highest level of service, professionalism and guidance for their real estate needs, whatever they may be. For sellers we aim to get the best price, as well as sell the home in the shortest time possible with the least amount of inconvenience to their daily lives. For buyers, we strive to find the best home for the best price in the right location. Our clients are our top priority, and it is our job to ensure that when it comes to real estate, they are truly getting what they want.
Clients are saying:
"Mike and Marcia work very well as a team. Marcia was always available to answer questions and quick to relay information during the sale process. They put in a tremendous amount of time with many open houses, showings, marketing and followup feedback from prospective buyers. They were knowledgeable about the market and we felt that we could depend upon their expertise. They have their fingers on the pulse."
"Marsha and Mike know the market and were able to sell our house after we had listed with another broker. They are very professional and were able to work with a part time broker to make sure the house closed as planned."
"Marcia Vecchione is professional and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her. She assisted in every aspect of the purchase of my new home."
"Marcia and Mike were an absolute pleasure to work with. They came in and gave us a presentation on the "hows" they would work to sell my Father's house. Not only did they come in and help stage the house, they gave us other pointer's on how to do things that would help attract potential buyers. In this unpredictable marketthey were a great help to us, we had the house on the market with 2 other brokers for over 2 1/2 years....Marcia and Mike made it happen! They were very professional and were totally upfront about everything. When it is time to sell our own home, we will definitely contact them, as they go more than the extra mile to accomplish the final goal!"
