GRI, ADPR, SFR - Broker
Maggie grew up in the Chicago area and, after leaving to attend college, she returned to Chicago in 1972 to work with her sister at her newly opened restaurant, La Creperie. Since then, she has prided herself on becoming a complete Windy City specialist, as well as being knowledgeable regarding many of the suburbs. Maggie's expertise is broad, having sold properties from as far south as Hyde Park, extending as far north as Lake Bluff. Her clients have benefited greatly from her extensive knowledge of the real estate market, whether handling single family homes, condominiums, developments, conversions, or investment properties. Maggie is constantly growing professionally; she achieved the prestigious GRI Graduate, Realtors Institute designation, which is held by less than 5% of Realtors and requires extensive graduate hours in all aspects of real estate.
Maggie states, "My background in communications has helped me tremendously to build a successful real estate business. I believe that every client deserves to be kept informed throughout the entire transaction. Selling/Buying a house is a long and complicated process. My job is to do what I can to make that process as smooth a transaction as possible. I also believe that my loyalty, integrity and dedication to my clients will keep my "referral-based" business thriving for years to come."
Clients are saying:
"Maggie Blondis is a wonderful realtor. She is sweet, kind, smart – and like a dog with a bone, she will not stop until her client (in this case, me) finds what he or she wants/needs/must have. I know I drove her crazy looking at one place after another and another and another. I think we saw about a kabillion properties in one week, but she never once complained, rolled her eyes or suggested I cool my jets and settle for something less than what felt like home. And then she found me the one that I knew was right the moment I walked in. (I knew cuz I could hear angels singing from on high.) My situation was complicated, as I was relocating from Los Angeles to Chicago –in the winter! Simple, right? Nope. But Maggie held my figurative hand through the entire long distance process and coordinated the closing on the exact date I needed. It was almost like she’d done this before (like a thousand times before).The end result is I have no regrets and a really nice place to call Sweet Home Chicago. Maggie Blondis is a total pro and I cannot recommend her highly enough."
"This was our first time working with Maggie and she was such a pleasure to work with. We really appreciated her patience and empathy as this was our first time selling our condo and purchasing a single family home. She was extremely helpful answering all of our questions and made this very stressful time much more manageable. She provided great perspective, was very thorough and detail oriented which helped us as we made this very important decision. We would highly recommend working with Maggie and will definitely work with her again."
"My wife Irina and I would like to express our thanks to you for the service, attention, and hospitality beyond the call of duty in the course of finding the right home in Chicago.

"Maggie Blondis provided very personable and professional sales representation of my condo property in Lincoln Park. She maintained an ongoing awareness of competitive properties and recent comparable sales in the area to make certain my Property was appropriately prices. Maggie was dependable, easy to reach and use different approaches to gain exposure. She sought useful feedback from other agents and buyers and kept me informed. Maggie was always open to ideas or suggestions I might have. Easy to work with, always pleasant and polite. I would be happy to list a property again with her in the future."
"I was very pleased when I both purchased and sold my home in Natick, Massachusetts. So, when I was relocated to Chicago, Maggie Blondis was the agent selected for me. During the weeks that followed, Maggie was very patient and accommodating. She listened beyond my words to hear what I really needed and wanted in a home. Her tenacious nature led her to visit and view properties even when my work schedule did not permit me to join her. Her care and concern for her clients is immediately apparent and is reflected in all her actions. She works hard to provide a valuable service. She is not only a good real estate agent, but also a good person."
