A longtime resident of the North Shore, Marsha Schwartz is a Chicagoan by choice. Having lived in various North Shore towns for over 30 years, she takes pride in “selling” Chicago to prospective new residents, transferees and others moving to the suburbs. Marsha was first transferred to Chicago, transferred away, and came back to the North Shore by choice.

She take prides in showing people the cultural attractions, beaches and parks, recreational activities, and restaurants each area has to offer.

For sellers, her familiarity with target market groups, helps sell their home. Her “staging” expertise, negotiating and marketing skills are unsurpassed in the industry. Marsha’s “caring” attitude if a testament to her skill as a “trusted adviser” to both buyer and sellers.
Over 90% of Marsha’s business is from referrals. She has made a commitment to doing almost exclusively business by referral, although each year she accepts some new clients into the fold.
Marsha has experienced more than three decades of success as a real estate professional in the North Shore and the north and northwest suburbs of Chicago. She ranks in the top 2% of all agents nationwide. Past clients attribute that success to her ability to build and foster great relationships and to make people feel cared for and comfortable. It’s her personal touch, her attention to detail and her dedication to her client’s individual needs that are remembered most.
According to Marsha, knowledge is essential in counseling her clients to achieve their real estate goals. As a licensed broker and full-time agent with designations GRI (Graduate of Realtors® Institute – which many equate to a master’s degree in real estate), CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist), CLHS (Certified Luxury Homes Specialist) and Certified Relocation Specialist, she has the tools necessary to guide her clients successfully through any real estate process. Additionally, she holds an e-PRO designation and uses this information to market and sell her client’s home quickly using cutting-edge technology.
Technology, designations, education and experience aside, Marsha believes the most important element of her career is the people—her clients. She loves her work, loves Chicago and finds no greater satisfaction than helping her clients realize their dreams and make the most of this special area.

"We have asked Marsha to help us with two home purchases and two sells. Each went extremely well. She sold my father's condo which 2 other brokers couldn't sell for three years. She got it done in 7 months during the recession. "
