Self-proclaimed “Northshore Expert” and luxury home realtor Kelly Dunn Rynes says her clients always ask how she knows every suburb along the shore. “I was born in Lake Forest and went to high school in Wilmette. Everything in between is my old stomping grounds,” she jokes.
Rynes boasts an average sales price of over $1 million, with over $30 million closed in 2021 alone. She also achieved the highest company sale in 2020 for Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Chicago and remains the largest Northshore sale record holder since 2020—a sale of $9.5 million. She says her 20 years of experience operating at a high-volume level are instrumental to her success in the real estate industry.
Rynes’ clients describe her as strategically experienced and fully committed. She says she also relates well to young families as she has three young kids of her own.
Rynes is a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Top Agent Network, and serves as a notary, a non-profit finance committee member, and as the President of the School Board. As busy as she is, Rynes still manages to carry out her business solo, saying, “When you call Kelly, you get Kelly!”
Rynes graced the cover of Chicago Agent Magazine in the June 2021 Technology Issue.
