Hello, I'm Lindsey Pann Paulus,
As a realtor, I believe what really sets me apart is the personal relationships I develop with my clients. So, as we begin this journey, here's a bit about me.
The Western Suburbs of Chicago are my original stomping grounds. I grew up in Western Springs and loved everything about it. Its quaint size, friendly people and proximity to everything. Back then, the "uptown" was even smaller and I remember walking to Showtime Video, spending summers at "the pool" and running in the Tower Trot. During this time, downtown La Grange wasn't nearly as cool, but was quickly turning into the bustling town of today—full of eclectic restaurants and shops.
In the ‘90s I graduated from Lyons Township High School and headed off to study business at the University of Illinois, Champaign/Urbana. After graduating, life was a whirlwind. I lived in Chicago for a few years, moved to my parent's new home in LaGrange, started my own clothing business and met my husband, Dave.
Long story short, I put my career on hold to raise our three boys who are now teenagers…until a good friend of mine, Sara Bass, told me her mom wanted help with her real estate business. Sara's mom had already guided Dave and I through three home purchases and I had enjoyed every minute of it. I decided to go for it.
That was 2012. Each year I have grown more in love with helping people buy and sell homes. It's emotional, exciting, fun and never dull because I wear so many different hats. I get to be creative…the one to tell it like it is…the cheerleader…the unlicensed therapist…the hard-ass…the comedian…and the one who puts it all into perspective. I work really hard and it pays off with happy clients and great relationships that have helped my business grow.
I would love to help you buy or sell a house. I promise to listen and work nonstop to help you reach your goals. I will always show up with a smile and bring positive energy to every step of the process. I'm excited to get to know you, earn your trust and help you during one of the biggest moments of a lifetime.

"Lindsey Paulus served our needs as sellers in a very professional and personal way. She prepared comps which enabled us to set a price that was attractive to buyers and eventually ended up in a quick sale with multiple offers. Throughout the sale process she communicated with us on every event pertinent to our listing, showings and sale. She was always available by phone, email or text. Lindsey is an energetic person with a positive outlook and we were quite happy to work with her."
"Lindsey did an excellent job in helping me find a home. From looking at places to the closing, she was helpful along the entire way! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for assistance in finding a place to live."
"Lindsey was terrific! She was attentive, organized, available to show homes at times that were convenient for us, and made this whole process seem easy."
"Lindsey is fantastic. She is extremely resourceful, knowledgable, flexible and very attentive to her clients needs and desires when looking for a new home. Sometimes we'd feel bad about calling her or or emailing her to answer, what we felt were simple questions, but she was always available and if she didn't have an immediate answer, she'd get it quickly. We highly recommend anyone to work with Lindsey if they are looking to purchase a new home."
"Lindsey handled the sale of my condo with expertise and professionalism. After initially contacting her to handle the listing, she managed my sale from start to finish while I was in another state. Lindsey worked with my renter to showcase the optimum qualities of the property and succeeded in getting me a buyer in 3 days! Her ability to keep me informed, conduct a fair price negotiation as well as handle the details needed for a smooth, seamless closing was amazing. It was a pleasure to work with Lindsey."
