With 60 years of combined experience, brokers Donna Mercier, Chris Foss and Donielle Foss Crimmins have turned residential real estate into a family affair. Expertise, personal attention and proven results are the hallmarks of the MercFoss Team of Coldwell Banker Realty’s Lake Forest office. Their vast professional network ensures every need is met, from staging to financing, disclosures and negotiations. The team consistently achieve awards and recognition. Despite the pandemic, in 2020 they had over $20,000,000 in sales and received the Coldwell Banker International President’s Elite Award.
Each member of the MercFoss Team has their specialty, and all three are certified luxury home marketing specialists.
Donna, a top producer since 1992, applies her talents to stewarding her family business. As she points out, “It was a challenging year, but we had clients who needed to move. This was just another opportunity to show how creative and adaptable we are in meeting our clients’ needs.”
Chris, a former futures broker at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the Chicago Board of Trade, is an expert in local property trends and valuations. “I strive to help our clients understand the market while managing their real estate needs and determining how to position their listings and offers,” says Chris.
Donielle is a lifelong Lake Forest resident and fixture in her community. She and Chris each have two children and dedicate the majority of their free time to parenting. “Seeing the cousins playing at the beach, bike riding and enjoying activities in our community is what we love the most!”
The MercFoss Team offers their clients a personalized plan with the feel of a small boutique office, but one that is backed by the international marketing presence of Coldwell Banker Realty throughout the Chicago North Shore and surrounding suburbs. They provide the skill, connections and dedication to guide their clients through all of the intricacies of any real estate transaction.
