As a licensed real estate Broker, Jim Luby primarily serves Chicago's North and Northwest Suburbs. He also has an extensive knowledge of the City of Chicago, having lived and worked in that market for 11 years. Since Chicago is the #1 feeder market into the suburbs, Jim's experience in the city has provided him access to a large pool of buyers looking to make a suburban transition.
At an early age, Jim Luby discovered his entrepreneurial appetite and developed the ability to interact with customers to uncover and serve their needs. First, it was his neighborhood lawn mowing business in the sixth grade. Then, Jim moved on to sell knives for a summer, before deciding to manage and run a house painting business while in high school. After college, Jim spent a few short years working in the corporate world for a small technology start up, before discovering his passion in Real Estate. Jim obtained his real estate license in the fall of 2000 and primarily worked in the Chicago market before moving to the Northwest Suburbs in 2011 and joining the family team.
Jim believes in the importance of providing each client with superior service, and he continually strives to stay on top of the industry by furthering his real estate knowledge. Jim has primarily built his business based on referrals from satisfied past and current clients and by becoming a trusted advisor. Over the course of his career, Jim Luby has worked closely with many types of real estate clients: residential homeowners, the luxury home market, high rise condominium developers, builders, distressed property owners, apartment building owners, property managers, & commercial investors. And though the real estate landscape is ever changing, Jim's primary objectives remain the same: to help his clients effectively buy and sell real estate; to provide them local expertise; to guide them through their purchase or sale with knowledge and integrity.
Outside of work, Jim Luby enjoys spending time with his wife Kelly and their five children – Liam, Charlie, Jack, Danny, and Casey. They love the outdoors, whether it be walking the neighborhood, biking, running, water sports...you name it. If there still time at the end of a day, Jim's other passions include gardening, playing ice hockey, and the playing the guitar.

After spending nearly a decade working as a Broadcast Journalist in the TV News business, Liz Luby earned her real estate license in 2007 and joined forces with Suzanne Luby and The Luby Group. Since they formed their partnership, Liz has led the effort to establish and grow The Luby Group's online presence through the team website and 365barrington.com. Liz has been a tremendous asset to The
Luby Group because of her communications background.
As a former news Anchor and Reporter for KFXB-TV in Dubuque, IA and WHBF-TV in The Quad Cities, IL, Liz mastered the art of news writing and story-telling. She now uses those skills to promote The Luby Group's brand and effectively market its listings both in print and online. During countless interviews with various news sources, Liz learned to get to the root of an issue by asking relevant questions and being a good listener. Today, these skills help her better assess the needs and goals of her real estate clients.
As a former morning news producer and writer for Fox News Chicago, Liz developed her skills as a team leader. Under intense deadline pressure, she consistently produced and earned recognition for high quality newscasts. Today, she applies these skills in the real estate realm by guiding seller and buyer clients through transactions with a knack for problem solving and expert attention to detail. Like Suzanne, Liz makes continued learning a high priority. She is one class away from earning her CRS (Council of Residential Specialists) professional designation and is part of a network of top selling REALTORS from across the country.
When Liz is not selling real estate, she loves spending time with her family and playing guitar with her husband, Bill. She enjoys reading, running and photography. Liz also runs her own website, 365Barrington.com, which feature all things in and around Barrington. This website has provided an additional outlet to give The Luby Group's clients increased online exposure and better access to information about local real estate.
