Senior Vice President of Sales
Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty
Margaret Baczkowski is a successful real estate agent, founder of MB Luxury Group, and senior vice president of sales at Jameson Sotheby’s International. She started her career working for a real estate developer, where she gained experience in numerous aspects of real estate including land development, homebuilding, custom luxury and speculative construction, commercial development, high-rise construction, and building management. Those skills have helped broaden her real estate expertise, and have made her a valuable resource to her clients.
Though Baczkowski primarily serves clients within the luxury market, referrals and repeat clients account for the bulk of her business. Serving these clients often starts by representing them in multi-million-dollar condo transactions, but grows to include other needs, such as single-family homes, vacation properties, and a child’s first apartment.
MB Luxury Group works closely with sellers by combining detailed local market knowledge with the global reach that the Sotheby’s name provides. MB’s team of experienced real estate professionals create custom marketing materials that best reach target audiences both locally and globally.
Baczkowski’s experiences as a real estate professional and as an investor have taught her how frustrating it can be to endure a poorly managed buying process. For that reason, MB Luxury Group has built a standout team to ensure that every transaction proceeds as smoothly as possible from offer to closing. That positive, worry-free experience is what keeps her clients coming back.
Giving back to Chicago and making a contribution to the city she loves are both high up on Baczkowski’s list of priorities. She is the founder and executive director of Strides for Peace, a Race Against Chicago Gun Violence. Strides for Peace hosts an annual run in October at Soldier Field and a farmers’ market during the summer in the Cathedral District. In Chicago’s most troubled neighborhoods, Strides for Peace performs extensive due diligence on existing not-for-profit organizations, and provides funding to the community partners deemed most effective at reducing gun violence throughout Chicago.
