Meet Elizabeth Jakaitis,
Your North Shore real estate agent
As my two daughters have grown through every year in the district 67 and 115 schools, from pre-k to Lake Forest High School graduation, I have been actively involved in academic and extracurricular organizations. I’ve enjoyed volunteering at both districts and most recently with the Lake Forest Caucus.
Most people are surprised that I started my career as a “techie” working in the telecommunications industry as a computer programmer. The transition to a marketing professional was natural for me, but my lifelong passion is interior design. I worked as an interior design consultant, attended Harrington Institute of Interior Design in Chicago for three years and as my family can attest, am a serial redecorator of my own home.
In my spare time, I enjoy diving into a good book, especially with my book club and always have an audiobook playing while in the car. I'm a health and fitness enthusiast, and it's always a priority to fit in being active daily, as well as making healthy meals for my family - except the occasional takeout from Bake 425, of course.
I believe that consistent outstanding customer service is the key to any professional relationship. This is proven through my commitment to my clients' needs and interests, and the fact that I've been going to the same hairdresser for 25 years!
I look forward to working diligently for my clients’ through all of their real estate needs. I'm experienced in assisting buyers and sellers, luxury properties, new construction, relocation, and preparing properties for market for maximum exposure.
I enjoy being recognized in the top brokers in Lake Forest and am lucky to have been awarded Chicago Agent Magazine Top Producing Agent, Chairman's Gold Award, President's Club, Gold Production Award, Properties of Distinction, Highest Office Production, and Highest Unit Sales Award.
It makes me happy when my clients are happy! One of my recent testimonials: “This is the forth real estate transaction we have worked with Elizabeth Jakaitis on and she has been excellent in all of them. One was a house purchase, this was a house sale, she also helped us rent out our home and find a rental. Elizabeth knows the market well, gained a good understanding of our needs and deals professionally with other brokers and closing teams making the process very easy. We took Elizabeth's advice on how we should prepare the house ready for market and we had 2 offers within 3 days of it listing and closed within a month. You can't expect anything more than that, especially in a buyers’ market!”

“[In a home] You’re making an investment in what could be the most important asset you’ll ever have. The right moment is when you know where you’re going to live for a while, when you find the home that fits your family, and when it’s at level that fits in with your income and ability to make a down payment and then I would get a very long mortgage… 30-year mortgage and the rate will be fabulous, and there is no sense waiting if those conditions exist."
