ChicagosLuxuryCondosandHomes.com, developed by luxury real estate veteran Linda Shaughnessy, highlights upscale and trending neighborhoods and real-time market news, offering real estate intenders a highly efficient way to search all MLS listings with a focus on Chicago’s luxury market.
While all MLS listings are searchable, the website showcases high-end luxury condominiums, co-ops, single family homes, and new developments with beautiful photography, informative videos, and descriptive content. The information is categorized for a more enjoyable and efficient property search. “You don’t have to spend time wondering, for example, if a Gold Coast house has parking, or if a condominium has a balcony,” Shaughnessy explained. “We formatted criteria so visitors can quickly search for their preferred neighborhood, lifestyle, and property features, particularly helpful for buyers relocating to Chicago. “
The high-performance website navigates at lightening-speed but the pages were carefully designed to enhance and inform in a magazine format, rather than just presenting volumes of listings. “We don’t fall in love with brick-and-mortar,” remarked Shaughnessy “we’re attracted to design and architecture, white glove service, a bucolic street. ChicagosLuxuryCondosandHomes.com was created with that in mind, and descriptive content is given the same attention as a property’s features.”
In addition to quickly bookmarking favorite properties, saving search criteria for easy referencing, and receiving timely email alerts of properties on their watch-list, registered buyers have access to pre-MLS and off-market pocket listings through Shaughnessy’s membership in the Top Agent Network.
A native New Yorker with a merchandising and marketing background, Linda Shaughnessy relocated to Chicago and launched her real estate career at a boutique Gold Coast brokerage and property management company. After three years of selling real estate successfully, she was named senior vice president of brokerage to oversee the company’s three residential sales offices. There, she started the first in-house marketing department of a Chicago real estate company and designed the first luxury marketing program. Shaughnessy returned to residential sales in 1996, and for more than two decades has specialized in Chicago’s Near North luxury market, integrating her keen marketing skills and business acumen with the latest technology to enhance and grow her business.
