Kate and Leone Barnett are a sister team that "works!"
Kate Barnett and Leone Barnett work hard to earn the confidence of their clients by careful listening, thorough researching, and communicating every step of the way. They grew up on the north side of Chicago close to Evanston and are an ideal fit for any buyer looking in the North Shore for a wonderful neighborhood to fit their lifestyle needs. As a dynamic selling team they fulfill the needs of any listing client by providing double the availability, double the resources, and therefore double the value. Working out of the number one real estate office in Glenview, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage they assist buyers, sellers, and investors in the following North Shore communities: Glenview, The Glen, Northbrook, Northfield, Deerfield, Riverwoods, Glencoe, Highland Park, Lake Forest, Lake Bluff, Winnetka, Wilmette, Kenilworth, Evanston, Skokie and the surrounding neighborhoods.
Buying on the North Shore
Whether you are relocating, first-time buyer, or seasoned investor Kate and Leone will diligently search to find you the ideal property to suit your needs. They understand you have a busy life and that searching for a home can feel like another part or even full-time job! Therefore they strive to take the “guess-work” out of looking by evaluating your likes, dislikes, goals, and financial preferences to make your home search efficient and homes you see strong possibilities from the start. One of their main concerns is not wasting your time, and showing you only the ‘best of the best’ that most closely fit your criteria. They do this by actively previewing properties, tapping into their vast Coldwell Banker broker network for exempt and pocket listings that may be a good match, and scouring the MLS and internet for you to be sure they are always the first to know that a hot property is available for you. While they have been largely ensconced in the North Shore for much of their lives Kate lived briefly on the East coast as well as the West before settling in the Northern suburbs. Leone has also lived outside of Chicago, spending time in the Twin Cities, MN and St. Louis, MO. Therefore both team members understand the needs of relocating buyers and how much is involved in a transfer. They work to make it as smooth as possible and acquaint you with the neighborhoods, amenities, and resources available to you so that you can feel at home your first week here.
