Whether it’s preparing and marketing properties, pricing strategies, downsizing or networking, Maureen Kerrigan Flavin takes it on. Downsizers, upsizers and first-time homebuyers count on her to find them the perfect condo or single-family property in DuPage County.
In just five years, Flavin has amassed an impressive collection of professional awards, including Top Listing Agent and Trailblazer awards from the Downers Grove office of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago in 2022, President’s Circle for being in the top 7 percent at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago in 2022, Committed to Excellence endorsement from the National Association of Realtors in 2021, Homesnap Excellence in Customer Service and Top 15% Award from 2020 to 2022, and Rising Star Real Estate Agent from 2019 to 2022.. She’s also a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Illinois Association of Realtors, Mainstreet Organization of Realtors, and International Association of Home Staging Professionals.
Flavin describes herself as insightful and results oriented. Clients also say she’s “detailed, dependable, compassionate and enjoys having a bit of fun,” she says. Communicating with clients is critical in this industry, and Flavin realizes that. “I know how to break down the process to make homebuying and selling easier to understand,” she says. “My clients really appreciate the effort I make to communicate the potential options so they can make informed decisions.” Her ability to empathize with clients sets her apart from her competition. “I put myself in my client’s shoes and work with them to meet their real estate goals,” she explains. “Everyone has a different perspective, so we work to define what they need to move forward. Sometimes it takes time and that’s okay.”
First and foremost, Flavin is a people person, and that quality enables her to create solid relationships. “I genuinely enjoy working collaboratively with my clients,” she says. “I’m generous with my time and help with recommendations and advice long after the sale. Many of my clients become my friends, and friends become my clients. It is a relationship business.”
