"Colleen did a superb job representing us as seller. She hosted numerous open houses, priced our home appropriately and in many instances went above and beyond in the service she provided. Highly recommended."

"We have worked with Colleen on both buying and selling transactions and recommend her without reservations. She is a goal oriented professional...knowledgeable, energetic, creative...with a congenial personality and strong work ethic and exceptional communication skills. In a process that can be intimidating, she has been resourceful; in a process that can be arduous, she has been supportive; in a process that can be overwhelming, she has been reassuring."

"When it was time to leave the home we'd been in for 30 plus years, Colleen's accurate pricing ad staging ideas helped us to sell very quickly. In negotiating the purchase of our new home, she kept us informed with her professional manner and regular communication. She knows the market and helped us get exactly the type of home and the location we were looking for in our price range. Colleen's attention to detail made the process go smoothly from contract to closing."

"Colleen McGinnis is an excellent realtor. She's professional, friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful in negotiating real estate transactions. Wholeheartedly recommend her as a broker if you are looking to relocate to Winnetka or other surrounding areas."

"I have been in the North Shore suburbs of Winnetka and WIlmette for the past 27 years. During which time I have purchased, sold or rented four different residences. I have dealt with several competent and professional people in teh real estate brokerage business, and of course developed many social friendships with others in the field. however, I would like to state that Colleen McGinnis from @properties is simply "top of the heap." Her dedication, patience and professionalism put her as No. 1 as real estate broker. I know of none better. She spent countess hours on our behlaf; always putting her clients ahead of any distraction she may have in her life. She is totally dedicated...I would highly recommend her; seriously."

"We want to thank you for the excellent service you provided. We had a deal fall through on a condo we purchased in the city, and we found ourselves living in a hotel in Northbrook after the closing on our house with no place to go. You responded instantly to our request for help, and you were able to arrange showings at a a number of properties on just a few hours' notice. You were kind, considerate and attentive to our needs, and clearly very knowledgeable about the market. We will not hesitate to refer friends and associates who may be looking for properties, or to sell their homes, to you. Thank you again for a truly outstanding service experience!"

"I have known Colleen for more than 30 years. In 2006 I asked Colleen to help me find a house. I explained my situation, how much I could afford, and the area I wanted to live in. Colleen was very diligent. She found the ideal house for me but it wouldn't be available in a timely manor. Colleen discussed my situation with the owners and was able to move the closing to meet with the end of my lease. In 2011 I inherited a house and called Colleen when I decided to sell it. I put everything in her capable hands even though the market was very unstable at the time. I will definitely recommend Colleen to anyone interested in buying or selling a home. She is dedicated to her job and will do everything it takes to accomplish it."

"Colleen McGinnis is a true professional; when ever I have a property to sell or am looking to buy, my first phone call is always to Colleen. I have used Colleen on multiple projects. Colleen's knowledge of the local and national real estate markets is impressive, her negotiating skills are stellar, and I always appreciate her honesty and her down-to-earth attitude. Colleen helped me set priorities and realistic goals that could be met. Colleen's personable charm and sweet sense of humor make her a pleasure to work with. I give Colleen McGinnis my highest recommendation."

"Colleen worked with us for almost 2 years to find the right house for us. She knew what our needs were, and would not send us where we didn't need to go. Colleen was also very responsive and eager to quickly show us what listings were relevant to us. Her patience and enthusiasm were always present. I would strongly recommend Colleen as a Real Estate broker."

"Colleen helped my husband and I find and buy our home. She was very knowledgeable and an excellent negotiator. We were relocating from another state where I practiced real estate. I found her to be very professional and would not hesitate to recommend her."

"Colleen has been very professional with the sale of our home. She is very knowledgeable of the market and pricing of homes in this area. She gets back quickly with any incoming information and is objective with her responses. Fun to work with and very supportive during the home sale process."

"Colleen McGinnis is professional, kind, patient and very knowledgeable of the North Shore real estate market. We were able to quickly narrow down our preferences and choices, and make an informed decision to purchase our home in a very short time."

"Working with Colleen McGinnis both as a seller and buyer has been most rewarding. She always returns our calls, responds to our requests and and provides the necessary information and attention. Our home was marketed professionally with a lovely brochure and interior design assistance and was shown on Open House Sundays and for other appointments.with enthusiasm and knowledge of our home and the community. She was always ready to find a new home for us, near and far good and interestingly unusual. We are delighted with our new home and consider Colleen to be a very good person, a very good real estate agent and a very good friend."

"We have known Colleen since 2002 when she represented the sellers of the home we purchased at 543 Brier St., Kenilworth. When we moved into that house, Colleen became our neighbor and friend. When we decided to sell that house, we wanted Colleen to represent us. Colleen ultimately represented us in the sale of 534 Brier and in the purchase of our current home at 530 Golf Lane, Lake Forest. Throughout the entire process, Colleen was the consummate professional and she upheld the highest ethical standards.We decided to try to sell 543 Brier in the worst market of our generation. Our plan was to take advantage of the market by trading up, but it was not going to be easy. As our agent, Colleen always kept our best interests as her number 1 priority, and she was extremely reputable .she kept our buyer engaged, and got him back for the deal that we did close. She worked hard to show us opportunities and alternatives, and when we needed an advocate to take a hard-line position, Colleen stepped up.Ultimately, we accomplished our end goal, and we are very happy with our new home. We have nothing but good things to say about Colleen and the job she did for us."

"Tom and I enjoyed working with Colleen in the sale of our home. She was well-prepared in a rapidly changing real estate environment and helped guide us to the appropriate timing and pricing of our home. In addition, she was tenacious but realistic in her negotiations and was able to secure us a solid offer in just 9 days. She was with us every step of the way from the initial listing to the final closing. I would highly recommend Colleen for her professionalism and enthusiasm. She got the job done!Marcia D"
