Pam Gottfred MacPherson does it all. She’s “always frank and honest with opinions on what needs to be done to help your home sell quickly for top dollar,” and isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty during the staging process. Because selling and buying is a very personal and emotional experience, she believes it’s important to have a voice that appreciates the delicacy of the situation but still stays grounded, direct and factual in the process. “Many homes have great bones and potential. I love helping the seller stage their home to help attract today’s buyer and adjust to the ever changing demands of the market.”
Pam specializes in luxury markets in the near north suburbs of Glenview, Golf, Evanston, Wilmette, Winnetka and Kenilworth and has extensive experience with new construction and rehab projects. Prior to specializing in the Northshore market, Pam helped clients and developers buy and sell in various Chicago neighborhoods such as West Town, Lincoln Park, Lakeview, among others. She created the MacPherson Westhoff Group to bring together some of Chicago’s best agents from various markets to bring a wide variety of area expertise to her clients and truly provide a full urban to suburban concierge service throughout all of Chicagoland and it’s suburbs. She’s thrilled to work with @properties, which she says “combines experience with energy and has been a leader in the Chicago real estate market for years.” Clients benefit from first-hand knowledge of products, pricing and negotiation.
Pam grew up in the Village of Golf and attended Glenbrook South High School, then went on to be a scholarship athlete at Duke University. She and her husband moved four times in their first five years of marriage. “All of our moves and researching communities and homes in different states is where my experience and love for real estate started.” Before moving to Glenview, she and her family lived in Evanston for 10 years. Her husband, Matt, is the Recruiting Coordinator and Running Backs Coach for Northwestern University’s football team. Pam’s competitive nature, strong negotiation skills, staging design experience, and extensive market knowledge bring unique skills to her clients. When not selling homes she enjoys spending time with her husband and three children and cheering on the Northwestern Football Team.
Clients are saying:
"Pam MacPherson has been a joy to work with on the sale of our home. The pictures and presentation of our home was excellent. She promoted the house through various formats and was present for every viewing. The house sold faster than we expected and we got the price we wanted. I would strongly recommend Pam to anyone who consider selling or buying a home."
"Pam was great. She is very competitive-- and that drive carries over to way she worked for us to both sell our house quickly and for the best price, as well as purchase the home we were hoping for at the right price. Pam knows Glenview, IL -- had a real good familiarity with every piece of property on the market that closely matched both our house for sale and the house we hoped to buy.
We closed on both sale and purchase the same day and the organization and thorough approach of Pam and her team made things completely flawless."
"Pam is a true professional from the start of the selling process to the closing, and went above and beyond! Her knowledge, expertise and customer-focused attitude was the reason that I sold my home in one day!! She made the entire selling process stress-free. Her upbeat personality made Pam a pleasure to work with! She will be your number 1 asset whether you are selling your home and/or buying a new one!!"
"We were very pleased to have hired Pam to market and sell out home. She shared many good ideas for getting our home on the market and she is an excellently communicator. We were always updated on buyers that were looking and given feedback. My husband and I highly recommend Pam and her team."
"I was referred to Pam MacPherson through a family friend who was a recent client of Pam's, and I could not have hoped for a better experience.
Pam is everything you are looking for in a realtor and MORE - professional, knowledgable, genuine, and a great negotiator! I moved from NY to Chicago without being very familiar with the new city and its many neighborhoods. When I began working with Pam, she asked all of the important questions to get to know me on an individual level, which allowed her to best assist me in finding an apartment that met all of my needs and requirements. In the weeks leading up to my trip to come see apartments, Pam sent me all of the available units that could potentially become my new home. This was not only a huge stress reliever, but also a major time saver. In the week before I flew in, we narrowed down my selection of units to those best suited to me, and then Pam took care of the rest! She set up the viewing appointments, researched the properties further, and then prepared a folder of information which I received when she picked me up to take me to the viewings.
Pam and I had corresponded through email and a few phone calls prior to my visit. However, when I finally met her in person it was as if we had been working together for years. She has a charming personality that helped me to keep calm and focused during this stressful process.
Upon our arrival at each location, Pam carefully walked me through each unit, pointing out the pros and cons that I may otherwise have overlooked. She helped me to formulate the proper questions to ask the property managers, and she was not afraid to push for further clarification. On several occasions Pam asserted that we get specific deals in writing to ensure that I would be getting what I was promised with each unit. This was a major help for me, as the unit I chose had a fabulous deal for an annual lease, and ultimately swayed my decision.
After Pam assisted me with the decision and selection process, she proceeded to help me with the signing of my lease - double checking to make sure that everything was how it should be.
Even after all of the paperwork was taken care of Pam continued to reach out to me. She drew up a floor plan for how best to layout my living space and sent links to furniture that I have purchased for the apartment.
As you can see, I cannot say enough about the service that Pam MacPherson delivers. I would be shocked if I could find someone more down-to-earth and sincere. I will certainly be working with Pam in the future and I will continue to recommend her to those who can benefit from her amazing work!"
