The Skirving Team combines Patti Skirving’s 16 years of experience in working with residential home sales, and Greg Skirving’s 30 year career background in commercial industrial real estate to provide a phenomenal value proposition to their clients. Between the two of them, Patti and Greg have encountered almost every type of real estate transaction and therefore meet the needs of any client with their expertise. Both Patti and Greg have a strong background in marketing properties creating and enhancing value with proven strategies. They employ dedication, diligence and discretion as they work with buyers and sellers on the North Shore to purchase or sell their next property. Patti and Greg have built their business on a true love of North Shore real estate and a deep respect and appreciation for their clients. Patti has enjoyed much success in the luxury market and has the experience to be able to show a property at its best with grace and style. Greg maintains the office management, marketing tools, communications and accountability. Patti and Greg serve real estate needs in the following communities: Winnetka, Kenilworth, Wilmette, Glencoe, Glenview, Evanston, Lake Forest, Lake Bluff and the greater North Shore area.
Luxury Buyers, Listings, and Developments
Patti and Greg are immersed in the luxury market, viewing homes in the million-dollar and up range every week as a team. They stay “in-the-know” on the trends and tastes of the market. At a time where many have struggled in real estate, Patti has adapted with the changes in the market with resilience and continues to get listings sold, which accounts for her solid position in the top 1 % of real estate brokers on the North Shore. In addition, the team offers to their sellers and developers customized and creative marketing plans, individually designed to highlight the home and maximize its exposure to the right buyers. Patti has had the honor of having her listings featured in some of the City and North Shore’s most prestigious publications including the Chicago Tribune. Ultimately the team’s business philosophy all comes down to one very important thing: work ethic. The Skirving Team does not give anything less than one hundred percent of themselves to every client. They want to achieve the goals that you have laid out and sell your home. With Patti and Greg you will know you have not one but two Realtors with experience, professionalism, skill, and extreme dedication.
Committment to Buyers
Patti is going to say something controversial, “I will not sell you a house unless you absolutely love it. It is not me selling a home because that’s my business and getting a quick check. It is me finding a home for my clients. A home that they are going to be able to be in for years; love, grow, make lifetime memories, that’s what’s important.” This philosophy is what gives Patti satisfaction in her job and keeps her clients coming back.
