About Me


Paula McGrath is a leading North Shore Realtor with deep roots in the community. Growing up and raising her family of four in Glenview. She is passionate and a great resource for anyone moving into the community.  Her agency experience marketing large corporate developments was the perfect transition to selling residential real estate. She understands the importance of market position and highly values client service. She is not number 1 you are.



Whether buying or selling, every transaction has to have value at its core. Price, of course is an important part of that value picture. But it's also understanding and meeting the needs, concerns of all parties that brings true value.  Paula knows, that as in any business, referrals are a big part of the picture. And that makes 100% client satisfaction a top priority. As your broker Paula works hard to insure that whether buying or selling the process is efficient, responsive to your needs, stress-free and conducted in a timely matter while negotiating the strongest and best deal possible.



Paula has the know-how to create a marketing package that has the impact to effectively market your home in a competitive market place.  She also has the touch to put your home's "best foot forward" with proper staging and photography. Her specific areas of expertise include Glenview, Northbrook, Northfield, Wilmette, Winnetka, Lincolnshire, Vernon Hills, Mount Prospect, Park Ridge, Evanston and Chicago. 



Paula believes in a positive, grateful, fun-loving life style where every day is a gift. No surprise she likes yoga, tai chi, long walks, two labs and friends and family get togethers. Giving back is key to her lifestyle. She is grateful to have the opportunity to work in a job depending on developing strong client relationships - often resulting in new friends.
