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:

"If you need a realtor, look no further. Words can’t express how grateful I am to have Megaan by my side through this journey. As a first time buyer, the process to find that perfect home can sometimes feel daunting and overwhelming...and that’s without a pandemic. A few qualities I love about Megaan is her expertise, her responsiveness and her positive attitude! She also provides a free initial consultation that gives you detailed insight into the process and what you need to expect. I can go on and on, but long story short, for anyone that is looking to buy their next home, and especially to anyone that’s looking for their first home, you need to reach out to Megaan. I promise you’ll be glad you did! Not to mention, her team is also amazing to work with. Thanks for everything, Megaan!"

"I could not have been happier choosing Megaan to work with! It was my first time buying so I needed a LOT of help, and she was there to help every step of the way no matter what time of day, day of week, or what questions I had. She made this process so easy with all her (& her team’s!) knowledge, especially during this difficult time with shutdowns."

"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!"
