North Shore Realtors

Lori Nieman Real Estate with @properties

Lori Nieman has been a long-time resident of the North Shore, having lived in both Winnetka and East Wilmette.  Her family spent many years living in Lincoln Park, before moving to the North Shore so she understands first-hand the transition- and how overwhelming it can be! As a consistently top-producing realtor, Lori can help with scoring a home even before it hits the market with advanced viewings and is an invaluable resource for contractors, neighborhood happenings, insight into the North Shore market itself and so much more! Lori is also licensed in the Naples FL area and has been assisting many North Shore residents with relocations and vacation homes.

Lori, where do you personally live and what do you love about your town?

I live in Winnetka with my husband and boy/girl twins who will be graduating this year. We have lived in Wilmette as well and love the synergy among the North Shore communities, both professionally and socially!  They are really all connected, whether it’s the park districts or restaurants, and there’s always something new to explore!

What are 1-2 fun facts about to know about you?

I have a mean whistle and can out whistle the best of them!

My family lived in Abu Dhabi and Dubai for several years, working on a commercial real estate development for the royal family.  Our twins were much younger at the time and were quite proficient in Arabic since it was required at the American School. Sadly, I only know about 10 words!

What do you love most about this industry? 

Real estate has always been a part of my life. Nothing compares to seeing your clients happy in their new homes or finding that special one for them before it even hits the market.  Most of my clients have become long-term friends and I am extremely grateful for that.

Connie, where do you personally live and what do you love about your town?

For over 20+ years, I have been living in Glenview with my husband and two sons. What attracted me personally to Glenview was the outstanding school system that has a variety of programs for special needs students. My eldest son is autistic and finding a good fit was a challenge but with the Glenview school district by our side supporting our son and his needs – it was a true blessing. Whereas our other son who is not special needs enjoyed a variety of programs from K-12 that are truly unique (i.e. Glenbrook Academy) and proved to be an asset for his academic career. Also, the accessibility of two Metra stations, walkability, dining, shopping and proximity to the highway and the city were also key components during our search all those years ago.

Billie Diamond with @properties Christie’s International Real Estate

I am a real estate broker with @properties in the Glencoe office. For the past 19 years, I have used my expertise and passion for real estate throughout Chicago and the North Shore with the purpose of turning what can be a stressful and confusing process into a pleasant and hopefully fun experience. I do this with both a positive and enthusiastic attitude, and an expertise in the market and roster of go-to specialists for all the little (and big) things that come up.

Anyone can find a home through the Internet – that part’s easy. But in this current market, where inventory is incredibly low, and buyers and sellers are finding their footing in a post pandemic market, you really need to work with a seasoned expert to help navigate the process. I also work to create success for my clients by helping them with the often underestimated aspects of real estate like – getting it at the right price by successfully negotiating, making the right improvements to maximize your value – and then having a wide variety of top-notch vendors (inspectors, lenders, lawyers, a painter, a hardwood floor guy, contractors, etc.) that can make the transaction run smoothly. Your home is so personal, and such a major transaction – so my clients are partnering with me to help them maximize their value and minimize their stress and effort.

I strive to provide the highest level of service, putting my clients at ease, and helping them avoid hidden costs that can quickly turn what looks like a great deal into a bad one.

Where do you personally live and what do you love about your town?

I live in Glencoe and I love the strong sense of community and small town feel. I enjoy bumping into people I know when I run errands and pop into stores. It feels very safe for my kids to independently cruise around town and the schools are simply wonderful.

What are 1-2 fun facts about to know about you?

I was the first girl born on my dad’s side of the family in 97 years. I have two older brothers and they still named me Billie!

What do you love most about this industry?

At the end of the day it’s a relationships business. I thrive on the trust and success I create for my clients and pride myself on making what can be a stressful process seamless and fun.
