Margaret Ludemann is a top producing Realtor who focuses her real estate practice in Glenview and neighboring communities in Chicagoland's North Shore. By education, training, and professional experience she is uniquely prepared and qualified to market and sell high price-point homes and also to represent buyers of those homes.
Her university major in journalism carried a concentration in advertising, and she earned a minor in marketing. She then spent many years in corporate life - very unique among Realtors - working nearly two decades for Fortune 100 companies American Express (marketing) and The Walt Disney Company (sales). During her corporate career she added professional training in negotiation strategy and sales cycle management. After leaving corporate life she worked in marketing for Loyola University’s Quinlan School of Business. As a real estate broker she has earned certifications as a Previews International Luxury Property Specialist, Accredited Staging Professional (ASP), and Certified Negotiation Specialist (CSN). She has won major awards from the north shore’s real estate association (NSBAR) and her former brokerage company Coldwell Banker where she was in the top 2% of agents worldwide. In short, Margaret is much like her clients…a highly educated, successful professional with strong skills, commercial acumen, and valuable experience acquired over many years in business at high levels.
Margaret’s approach to the practice of real estate is to research her carefully chosen markets deeply so that she is the expert – the foremost expert - in their home types, neighborhoods, demographics, prices, and trends. She believes that information is a critical piece to successfully marketing and selling a home or representing buyers…and that it is THE major factor in negotiating the best possible price and terms on behalf of her clients. Her goal is to always know more than the realtor representing the other side of a transaction.
Margaret is a long time homeowner on the North Shore and, before that, in Chicago. She is an avid reader, traveler, singer, and baseball aficionado. Margaret is married and has a teenage son. Finally, she loves being a Realtor. And it shows.
