Winnetka IL, Wilmette, Kenilworth, Glencoe, Highland Park and Evanston make Chicago's North Shore suburbs. Conveniently located near the commuter train and expressway, these beautiful villages offer the best living available in the Chicago area. Tree-lined streets, excellent schools, shopping, restaurants, forest preserves and a host of activities for all ages to enjoy. And best of all is Lake Michigan and its many beautiful beaches and parks.
My area of expertise is residential real estate including luxury, condos, townhouses, relocation, new construction and land. I have extensive knowledge of the local neighborhoods, schools, and a list of referrals for all your needs.
|Margaret was the easiest Realtor I have ever worked with, knew my exact needs and didn’t push to show me everything that was on the market. She LISTENED. I wanted to see a ranch style home, single floor only, and apartments that had indoor garage and elevator. The fifth property she showed me was a three story Townhouse, something NOT on my list, but it has its own private elevator with an attached garage. These are the things she knew were most important to me. We looked no further, struck a deal and I am now HAPPILY living in my “new” townhome. This is something I would have never considered without Margaret’s thoughtful guidance and attention to my needs. Can you even imagine, seeing only five properties and closing a deal?!?! That’s the kind of Realtor Margaret is, absolutely NO nonsense and totally responsive to her clients needs.|

|"Margaret Goss was instrumental in helping with our relocation from Los Angeles to Winnetka. Prior to our house search, she provided us with useful and pertinent information on all aspects of North Shore life--from housing, schools, recreational opportunities, etc. She did an excellent job vetting a home for our family and was aggressive in getting us exposure to as many properties as possible. In the end, Margaret was instrumental in finding us a beautiful home, assisting us in the negotiation and close of the transaction and helping us with our cross-country move. Margaret's hard work, integrity and honest advice helped make the transition to our new home seamless!"|
|Peter G., Winnetka|
|"Margaret Goss worked with me on a complicated and time sensitive real estate transaction, and proved to be an incredibly valuable advisor. Not only was she insightful in the search process (helping us to quickly winnow down the targets we were looking at), but she also was very thoughtful and effective in managing the ultimate negotiation and execution of the transaction. I would use Margaret for any and all future real estate transactions"|
