Clients are saying:
"We have worked with Ginny on multiple transactions over the course of the last decade. She has listened to our needs and created solutions which worked for us from a buy, and sell perspective. She treats real estate like serious business and is a professional representative. We have always felt like she had our best interests in mind."
"When we first considered moving to Winnetka, friends of ours suggested we contact Ginny Grinstead. They had worked with Ginny in the past and felt we would benefit from her help. Neither my husband or I had grown up in the area and we were unfamiliar with what the Chicago Suburbs had to offer. We had explored so many areas as we knew there were several options that would fit our parameters, we were just a little nervous about committing to a specific village. One call to Ginny and we knew wed found a home.Ginny not only took the time to show us the houses on the market but she really helped us know Winnetka and all it had to offer. She knew that it wasnt just the house itself that would be the decision factor but the whole package. More than 10 years and 2 moves later Ginny is still the first person I would call if I was buying or selling a house. Ginny has become a friend and our go to source for everything that is Winnetka real estate. Ginny has been a resident and an agent in the North Shore for over 30 years and has a stellar reputation among her peers. She knows what buyers are looking for and suggested ways our home could be more attractive to buyers. I believe her experience and expertise produced a higher sale price and a quicker sale for our home. The next time were in the market to buy or sell a home, Ginny will again be our first call."
