A graduate of DePaul University, Sally LaJoie grew up in the Evanston and Gold Coast areas, giving her an appreciation of what Chicago has to offer — from the city to the suburbs. LaJoie worked in retail copywriting and fashion prior to finding her fit in real estate. A few years ago, she found herself seeking a career change while in the process of purchasing her first condominium. She had such an invigorating home buying experience that she knew this was the industry for her. LaJoie has spent the last three years combining her business acumen with her creativity to bring imagination to her work.
With specialties in residential staging and renovations, LaJoie prides herself on her ability to help consumers visualize the maximum potential of a space. Those who work with her can also anticipate consistent, personalized engagement — all while having fun. “It’s important to me that my clients have fun throughout the process as well,” says LaJoie. “The market can be stressful, and I strive to keep the excitement alive.” The quality of LaJoie’s client relationships and her energizing work style have not gone unnoticed, as she received the Bronze Producer Award for sales volume from Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty in 2020. After experiencing much success as part of a team and growing her business through marketing and referrals, LaJoie began working as an independent broker at the beginning of this year. She’s also proud to have had the rewarding experience of helping two childhood friends buy their first homes.
Though a well-rounded Chicago native, LaJoie revels in the continual exploration of all the city and its suburbs have to offer. She enjoys biking along Sheridan Road in the summer and admiring the beauty of the North Shore, as well as taking in beautiful architecture on long walks with her dog, Winston. She describes her two main interests outside of real estate as fashion and food. “I am happiest when I am well-fed and well-dressed,” she quips.
