Debbie Glickman : As your Realtor, I will strive to earn your trust, confidence and loyalty …and of course, find you the perfect home! Buying and selling a home is probably one of the biggest financial decisions of a life time and also one of the most emotional. My goal is to guide my clients through all stages of the buying and selling process with the least amount of stress and highest amount of satisfaction. I serve real estate needs in the following communities : Northbrook, Northfield, Glenveiw, Deerfield, Highland Park, Glencoe, Wilmette, Skokie, Lincolnwood, Niles, Morton Grove, Buffalo Grove, Arlington Heights, Gurnee, Mundelein, Chicago, and Park Ridge.
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Madison, (Go Badgers!) in 1987 with a degree in Communicates Arts. I have been involved in real estate ever since. I have a background in both residential and commercial leasing, selling new construction homes (Red Seal Builders), and the resale market of single family homes in the North Shore. I understand the negotiation process and how to help you secure the best possible price and favorable terms in the shortest time. In Short: I know how to close the deal!
Buying with Debbie
I serve a diverse clientele and am adept at helping a myriad of client types. If you are a first-time buyer, I can walk you through the process with ease and answer all of your questions so that you feel confident with your important decisions. I always consider it a privilege and a pleasure to get to take part in helping you and your family find that next perfect home. I also have a great deal of experience working with the luxury home market and keep up on the trends and purchasing preferences of today's upper bracket home buyer. I will help advise you on the home that fits your needs both short and long term, and is a sound investment. I am immersed in the North Shore market and keep my finger on the pulse of the communities therein. My children are still in school and therefore I am up to date on the changes in the schools and am happy to advise the relocating buyer on the district resources. I am strongly connected to my community and have a wide network of people that I am also happy to connect a new neighbor to.
Selling with Debbie
I strongly feel there are three important components to selling your house quickly: 1) Pricing it right 2) Preparing it to show perfectly 3) and then aggressively marketing it in as many places as possible. I will help you with each of these steps and combine my market expertise and sales experience to get the job done. You need to be ahead of the game on your pricing to get it sold quickly for the best price. Ask me about the 'slinky' analogy. I hate to see a client have their listing sit on the market and miss the boat, so to speak. I want to get your home sold efficiently and effectively and position it with an energy price that will hopefully have the market chasing you! From a marketing perspective I position your home with prime placement on Zillow, Trulia, Realor.com, Coldwell Banker National and Local sites, and over 60 other websites to ensure your home gets lots of first online showings. Over 80% of home buyers are online looking at virtual showings and I assure you that your home will draw them in. In addition this is a personal business that is all about connecting. I think I have strong personal skills and connect well with my clients and their potential buyers ensuring a smooth transaction.
Family Life on the North Shore
I am a life time resident of the North Shore. I grew up in Wilmette, have lived in Chicago, Buffalo Grove and have been in Northbrook for the past 13 years. I am married to an attorney, who specializes in real estate, estate planning and corporate issues and we have three beautiful daughters, who have attended and are currently enrolled in several of the North Shore schools. Personal relationships is what it is all about. I am a great resource to my clients. I invite you to ask me about schools, camps, doctors, leisure activities, contractors, landscapers, restaurants, etc…
