Find Your Happy Space!

A Chicago Realtor with a background in interior design; I bring an insightful perspective to every transaction. My passion for design and the way people function in a space is how I can offer my clients a unique viewpoint when helping them sell or purchase real estate. I understand not just the current value of a home, but also, it's potential. My commitment is to remain patient, determined and communicative and offer creative problem solving along the way. Because of this consistency, most of my business comes from referrals from happy clients.

I joined Lothamere + Co in the fall of 2018 and had previously worked on a top-producing Real Estate team for 8 years.  After graduating from Baylor University with a BS in Interior Design I moved to Chicago and took a job as a Project Manager for a luxury design firm, this knowledge has been invaluable to my career in Real Estate. Because of these experiences and working in the industry through a shifting market; I have been forced to become extremely adaptable to change.  I am ready for whatever this ever-changing landscape of Chicago Real Estate brings my way.

My husband, 2 dogs and cat reside in a Rogers Park, though I have lived in Chicago since 2007 and consider this city my home.  I am active member of my community; involved with a couple community organizations and hold the treasurer position on my condo board.  I enjoy spending time on the lakefront with my dogs, yoga, reading and exploring the incredible art & architecture of Chicago.  My husband and I love trying new food in the many neighborhoods of Chicago and embrace all the activities the city sends our way.  I can't wait to share all I know and love about Chicago with you!

Clients are saying:

"Megaan is exactly what you hope for when looking for a real estate agent. She was incredible kind, informative, and patient with me and my fiancee as we had so many questions since we were first-time home buyers. She offered a no strings, free consultation to guide us through the entire buying process before we even started, which I can't stress enough was unbelievably helpful. Her dedication and passion were obvious from the start and her availability truly made us feel like we were her only client (though we obviously knew she had many more). I would recommend her in a heart beat."

"In short, Megaan is an amazing person who is an incredibly personable realtor. But here are some more details because we can’t say enough good things about her:

1) Patient and high level of integrity – Megaan takes the time to get to know you. We met Megaan at an open house in 2017 and didn’t buy our home until two years later. She’s not in the business to close deals; she wants her clients to find homes that they love. 2) Expertise and attention to detail – Megaan has been in the business for a while. She notices everything at showings. Water stain on the hardwood? Make sure the inspector looks at that. Materials used to build the structure? Make sure maintenance has been done regularly. 3) Calming presence – Buying a home is stressful, and Megaan offered us reassurance and guidance from initial offer to post-close. 4) Team player – Megaan surrounds herself with equally amazing people. We worked with one of her lawyers and inspectors and would 100% recommend these individuals as well. 5) Excellent negotiator – No one wants to overpay for a home. Megaan has great relationships with listing agents and knew the market and recent comps in our desired area. 6) Tasteful interior designer – Megaan also has a background in interior design and gave us tips on paint colors, remodeling a bathroom, and how the remodel could impact resale value."

"Megaan was a pleasure to work with for the sale of our condo! She was very thoughtful and professional throughout the entire process. From assisting with staging our condo to guiding us through the process once under contract, we could not have asked for a better experience. Thanks, Megaan!"

"Megaan is the best! She is incredibly passionate about her work in real estate and design and treated us like her only clients. We were first time homebuyers and she made the process so easy and delivered on everything we asked. She also made all the connections to everyone else involved in the process and they were also all amazing to work with. She definitely goes above and beyond expectations!"

"Megaan is amazing. She sold our condo a couple years ago in a blink of an eye so there was no question of who we wanted to work with when we decided to buy again. Megaan really listened to us, helped us through the process, and was super responsive to all our questions and concerns. And we had a very specific type of residence we were looking for, so it wasn't an easy job finding us what we wanted! She is thoughtful, considerate, on the ball, and has such a positive attitude. She even helped us successfully rent the apartment we were leaving. I can't say too many good thing about Megaan and could not imagine a better realtor, whether you are selling, buying, or renting."
