With 53 years of real estate experience combined, Jean Anderson and her niece, Donna Mancuso, have done it all. As brokers with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago, Anderson and Mancuso serve clients along the North Shore. Selling single-family homes as well as condos, town homes and vacant land, Anderson and Mancuso always give it their all, regardless of property value. “This year we closed a house in the $400,000s and one over $5 million,” they share. “Every client is equally important to us.”
Priding themselves on their ability to forge lasting bonds with their clients and attend to their unique needs, Anderson and Mancuso have built a team based on referrals and repeat business. “We like to tell our potential clients that this relationship is like a marriage,” they explain. “We are partners and we need to trust each other and rely on each other, and there will be ups and downs, but we are in it for each other and want the best for each other and will do what it takes to make that happen.”
Throughout the pandemic, Anderson and Mancuso adapted to the changing market by promoting Lake Forest as the perfect neighborhood for properties with low taxes and spacious lots that could accommodate a work-from-home lifestyle.
As a team, Anderson and Mancuso have been recognized as sales leaders in their office. Individually, Anderson has ranked among the top 1% of agents nationally, as well as the No. 1 individual agent on the North Shore and the top agent in Lake Forest and Lake Bluff. She previously was named one of America’s Best Real Estate Agents by The Wall Street Journal’s RealTrends and received Chicago Agent magazine’s Top Producer award. For multiple years, Anderson was recognized as a LuxeHome honoree, and she’s a longtime Five Star Professional.
