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.
Clients are saying:
"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 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."
"I had an unusual situation and Lindsey went above and beyond for me in helping me find and keep my home. She truly cares about the people she works with. She was amazing and if I could give more than 5 stars I would!"
"Lindsey stood with me, through thick and thin, for 2 years. Yes, 2 years! When I started looking for a home, I definitely wasn't sure what I was looking for. We looked in 10+ towns at a wide range of different houses. Lindsey showed her knowledge of the real estate market, and was very responsive and considerate to my needs. Needless to say, she had the patience to deal with my indecisiveness for quite a while. It was her real estate knowledge that helped me narrow my search to find what I truly wanted.
It wasn't until year 2 that I found the place I wanted to call home. Lindsey was still there with her positive attitude when close day finally came. Because of her, I was prepared for exactly what to expect, and close went as smoothly as possible.
Thanks Lindsey for being great!"
"Lindsey was SO helpful throughout the whole buying process. This was my first time buying a place and she was informative the entire time. She was able to answer every question I had and was so kind through the whole thing. If I'm ever in the market again, buying or selling, I'll definitely be going back to her."
