Some people grow into their passion for real estate. Others are born with it.
Jacqueline Trotter Lotzof knows what it takes to buy and sell property. Growing up in a real estate family, and playing key roles in over $200 million in real estate transactions for a wide range of commercial and residential properties nationwide, she quickly learned the importance of achieving the security of a sound investment and solid return for the client. Having returned to her native Highland Park from Chicago four years ago, she understands the distinguishing characteristics of different neighborhoods and communities throughout Chicagoland and works tirelessly to find the perfect match for her clients. Her approachable yet professional demeanor, refined organizational skills and dedication to her clients, keeps her keenly focused and able to deliver results.
“I learned the secrets behind my father’s success in real estate and put that same dedication, intuition and construction know-how to work for my own clients. I value the importance of cultivating and maintaining relationships, something I focus on daily in every aspect of my personal and professional life.”
With Jacqueline's prior years of experience running her construction company, JTL Brokerage & Construction, she brings knowledgeable insights to understand a home’s true potential. Jacqueline is an invaluable resource to her clients; whether buying or selling she can source all her clients will need during the process.
Prior to establishing her construction company, Jacqueline was at the Alter Group, a national developer of commercial, industrial, medical office, student housing and multifamily properties. Jacqueline graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and she and her family live in the Ravinia neighborhood of Highland Park. Her strong interests in the vitality of her community led her to become active in local civic organizations including The Art Center of Highland Park.
“My clients are like my family, and there is nothing I wouldn’t do in the search or sale of a home for my own family.”
Clients are saying:
"We were very pleased to work with Jacqueline. She is very personable, and, although I wasn't present at showings, I believe she did a great job of presenting our home to potential buyers. Our home was sold quickly, and she made herself available throughout the entire process for questions and ideas. Jacqueline is very positive and smart, and she made the process move smoothly from beginning to end!"
"We really enjoyed working with Jacqueline. She was accessible and honest. She got the job done quickly, which was most important to us. We hope to never move again; but if we do, we would use her without hesitation!"
"Jaqueline is an asset to any buyer or seller. I worked with her for over a year in purchasing our new home. Finding the right home is a difficult task but Jaquelines knowledge about both the area and the market made me at ease. Additionally, her contractor development experience was also very helpful. Her access to referrals and resources is endless. I really appreciated her honesty and professionalism. Jacqueline is a rare find in the real estate world and a delight to work with."
"Working with Jacqueline was a very smooth process. From the moment I met her I knew I wanted to work with her. She was well organized, knew what we needed to do to sell our house fast. We listened and our home sold in 3 days. She ended up being a dual agent and was able to provide information that helped us make the right decisions. We were very happy working with her and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent."
"Jacqueline was the best of the best! She was prompt, communicative, patient, honest, knowledgeable, trustworthy, reliable, and the list goes on! She immediately made my husband and I feel welcome in a new city. Most importantly, she was truly "in our corner" and put our best interests first. I could not imagine using anyone else for our next rental or purchase in the Chicago area. I would recommend her to ANYONE looking for an organized, efficient, and beyond personable agent. I now consider her a friend and could not imagine going through this process with anyone else!"
