Prairie Shore Properties, a mid-size North Shore and Chicago real estate company, has recently completed the move of its North Shore office to a newly renovated location at 2934 Central St in Evanston, having outgrown its original Evanston location at 2110 Central St after 18 years of growth and accomplishment.
The new Evanston facility is housed in an elegant new Prairie-style building and is bright and open with a sophisticated decor that boasts beautiful historic photos of the area. Visitors are encouraged to stop in and discuss the market with their local experts in a low pressure, welcoming environment.
“We want our clients and colleagues to walk in the door and feel at ease. They know immediately that they are dealing with a quality operation that they can trust to guide them through one of life’s great milestones,” said Broker/Owner Liz Bulf.
Since its founding in 1992 by five top Evanston Real Estate agents, Prairie Shore Properties has grown to be one of the largest privately-owned real estate companies on the North Shore. Today, the firm has a respected roster of professional, highly active agents, and unlike a franchise, does not hire amateurs dabbling in the business.
“We wanted to create a progressive company that caters to the professional Realtor who wants support and a good working environment, but with the freedom of a small business,” said Broker/Owner Mary Summerville. “Prairie Shore never set out to be #1. It’s a goal that’s not realistic against large franchises with thousands of agents. But when it comes down to individual agents, it’s no contest. Even up against the big guys, our agents routinely outsell in sales per agent.”
As Evanston’s top office in sales for the first half of 2010, Prairie Shore Properties has demonstrated leadership and sticking power during a difficult housing market. A reputation for excellence and a roster of accomplished professionals have placed this local, independent firm on a footing with its larger corporate competitors. What sets them apart is the Prairie Shore Difference: experience, integrity and personal service.
The enhanced Evanston location is the latest of several dramatic improvements over the past few years. In 2007, Prairie Shore upgraded its Chicago office from a modest Lincoln Park storefront to a large, brand-new facility in the heart of Northcenter. The company also recently launched a revamped and highly-sophisticated PrairieShore.com, which now features a powerful, user-friendly MLS search engine. Additionally, with the recent retirements of two of the firm’s original Partners, Prairie Shore has taken on new Partners to ensure the continuity & future growth of this distinguished and respected business.
