Before changing careers, Ashley Kain Silver was involved in politics and campaign work, racking up 5 years of solid networking experience that prepared her for real estate. “I don’t just provide a service, it’s not just a one-and-done type of sale,” she says. “It’s a relationship, a friendship.

Billie Diamond with @Properties Glencoe

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 likely to find themselves in a bidding war on pre-market homes, 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.

I’ve lived and worked on the North Shore for over 20 years, after moving with my family from the Bucktown neighborhood in Chicago.

I’ve seen firsthand the high quality of the school system, as I raised my 2 sons in this amazing location, where my youngest will soon graduate from high school. Our family has enjoyed the lakefront, and the many amenities the North Shore offers. While based in Lake Forest, I service Evanston north to Lake Bluff, and the towns west of these locations. My reviews are all 5-star ratings. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance in helping your family achieve your real estate goals.

Mary Grant with @Properties

I have lived on the North Shore for over 30 years and loved every minute of it. I raised my three children here and they all have become young respectful adults because of the great teachers, great community, and hopefully me! I love helping people find a new home and work hard to find the best fit for them regardless of how long it takes. I also help sellers understand the market dynamics and I believe I am good at understanding the stress level of both buyers and sellers. I am lucky to have so many great friends/clients who refer me and because of that, I am ranked as one of the top three real estate brokers in the New Trier School District. The bottom line is I am happy to help so many people buy and sell in our special community!

Tara Giles with The Lake Group at Compass

I am a Realtor with The Lake Group at Compass. This is my 15th year as a Realtor and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else! I called the city of Chicago home for 15 years before moving to Wilmette 3 years ago with my husband and twin girls. I have fallen in love with the North Shore and am so happy with our decision to move here.

My business is unique because while many agents specialize in the city OR the suburbs – I have in-depth market knowledge and experience with both. I am an expert in the various neighborhoods that make up Chicago, as well as the North Shore suburbs. My team, The Lake Group at Compass, is one of the top teams in Chicagoland and has done over 300 million in sales. I can help someone sell their city condo while simultaneously buying a home in the suburbs and making sure both transactions are as seamless as possible – which can be difficult in the current market.

Having made the move to the suburbs somewhat recently myself – I know that there is a lot to consider as a parent and it is important to have someone guiding you that understands those things. I am responsive, resourceful, patient and truly love what I do! From navigating the schools, to making sure the commute to work is convenient, to finding the best restaurants, to choosing the perfect neighborhood – my goal is to make the home buying or selling process fun and exciting rather than stressful.
