"Sharon Gillman knows Chicago real estate and she knows people. We were in the market for an additional unit in our existing building. She worked with the realtor on the sale side to make a deal that worked for both sides. It was a no nonsense, quick negotiation that led short turn-around time. Sharon is a "full-service" realtor, helping us find a reasonably priced attorney, inspection person and anything we needed. It was during COVID and we closed within days of acceptance." - Tom & Jennifer

★★★★★
"I have known Marissa for many years both personally and professionally and I can honestly say, that she is a class act. Marissa is smart, hard working and extremely thoughtful. She exudes a certain kind of warmth, grace and fair mindedness that is rare. I plan on recommending Marissa to friends and business associates, and will certainly work with her again in the future. She was an integral part in our making the sale of our home stress free." - Irene S

★★★★★
"My insight into Marissa’s character happened upon one of our first meetings. We were together at lunch, and she walked across the restaurant to pick up someone’s jacket that had fallen on the floor. It’s a small gesture that said so much about her character. As evidenced by this kind act, Marissa is thoughtful, goes above and beyond what is necessary, is willing to do what others shy away from, and is humble and kind. The difference between those that are good and those that are great, is that greatness comes from doing a little bit more all of the time. Marissa does a little bit more, even when she doesn’t have to, and to me, that was priceless." - Helen Y


About Marissa

Marissa Schaefer, 2020's "Rising Star" [Top Agent Magazine], co-leads the Gillman Group with her mother, Sharon Gillman, and loves every aspect of real estate.  From selling pre-construction development to single family homes, she is just as comfortable with developers as she is with first-time home buyers.  Marissa has a keen and discerning eye honed during her years in fashion, as well as an inherent love of helping people.  This combination has helped her become a Top Producer in Chicago, seamlessly navigating every transaction.  Her warmth and determination endears her to all her clients- who often become friends- and she is always eager to go the extra mile to get a deal done.  

Born and raised in downtown Chicago, Marissa began her real estate career in 2014 after a successful decade in couture fashion and luxury retail management — working for iconic labels including Lanvin and Michael Kors. Her background in fashion and retail offers a fresh perspective to understanding the local real estate market, staging properties, and negotiating the best deal.   Growing up with her mother in real estate and her father in construction, it was only natural for Marissa to join her family in real estate and parlay her background into new endeavors.

When Marissa isn’t selling homes, you will find her volunteering at Dress for Success, scouting the city's best interior design shops, and going on adventures with her daughter.  She is passionate about wellness and loves to bake heart-healthy creations for her husband, daughter, and even their pup Lady.
