With a combined total of 50 years of North Shore living, Kathryn and Kelly are experts in the area. From Glencoe down to Evanston, they have the North Shore covered from top to bottom. Both women went through the North Shore school district, and now their children - ranging from two to teenagers - are following suit. This, in addition to their active involvement in the community, gives them unique perspectives and solid relationships in the area.
Proud to offer a turnkey solution to real estate, their corporate backgrounds taught them to understand the value of customer service, identify what clients really need, and instilled in them the importance of listening and creating solutions. The Mangel Team has the ability to take a client from A to Z in every real estate transaction, and offers 24/7 availability. Prior to real estate, Kathryn and Kelly each worked for large corporations - IBM and Aon, respectively - which developed their professional attitudes and shaped who they are as Realtors today.
Kelly and Kathryn first met while playing sports together in Wilmette, and their competitive drive fuels them to do their best when it comes to serving clients. Both Kathryn and Kelly were independently named "Rookie of the Year" in their first years in real estate, and have consistently ranked as top agents ever since. Down to Earth and easy to work with, Kelly and Kathryn source homes for high-level CEOs, young families just getting started, empty nesters, rental seekers, and everyone in between.
Kathryn and Kelly are able to adapt to whatever their clients may need, and the team mentality means that no question goes unanswered. Between the two of them, they have the skills and solutions to work with every client, whether they want to buy, sell, relocate, or rent. Natural born problem solvers, Kelly and Kathryn have streamlined their business model in order to provide the best possible customer service. They are well known in the North Shore and have great relationships with other agents, as well as everyone else who assists in the real estate process.
Currently, Kathryn lives in Winnetka with her husband and three children, while Kelly lives in Kenilworth with her husband and three kids. In their free time, they enjoy being with their families and encouraging their children's activities and sporting events. They also both have a passion for helping the community. Most recently, Kelly chaired the Shedd Aquarium Gala and Kohl Children's Museum's "Touch a Truck" events, while Kathryn chaired the Botanic Garden's Harvest Ball and the Joseph Sears School JK-8th Grade Whole School Benefit in 2011.

Clients are saying:
"It was an amazing experience to work with Team Mangel. Being first time home buyers, we were a little nervous but Kathryn walked us through every step and made the whole process seamless and stress free. I couldn’t recommend Team Mangel more. Most importantly, Kathryn never pushed us to buy a house we would regret later, and instead always gave her honest professional opinion. Her knowledge of the North Shore, and Winnetka in particular, is unprecedented. We couldn’t be happier with the whole home buying process.
From offer to closing, Kathryn facilitated the whole process in 4 weeks!!! I have heard horror stories of months long closing, but she was very focused, and even made sure that even my lender does not lose a beat.
Even after the purchase she went out of her way to help us with some outstanding items from the previous owners. We loved her so much that that I recommended her to my sister, and there too team Mangel helped her close the property in record time! If you are looking to buy in north shore I would highly highly recommend Team Mangel."
