“I love my profession. It lets me meet and know a wide range of interesting people – young families looking for their first home on the North Shore, families being transferred to or from another area of the country, families looking to move up to a home they hope to live in for decades, empty nesters moving on to condos or retirement residences and many others. It’s a wonderful feeling to help bring about a transaction that accomplishes the goals of the buyer and the seller.”
A strong commitment to serving her clients is the hallmark of Muggsy’s approach.

These traits and the sales they’ve generated have brought her recognition as a “Top Producer”, and member of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago’s “President’s Club.”
Muggsy knows the North Shore well. She has lived in Wilmette for 35 years. She has actively contributed through service to the Junior League of the North Shore, League of Women Voters, PTA, Girl Scouts, University of Chicago Cancer Research Foundation and other community groups.
