For over 20 years, I have worked in Lake County real estate along the North Shore helping clients buy, sell and improve their homes. Much of my work with Sellers is during the weeks and months prior to the first showing. In addition to reviewing comparable home sales history, I help clients see their home from a buyers' point of view. I am hands-on as we rearrange furniture and accessorize often without spending money. The "before and after" photos are amazing. I also advise on what items to store or toss, and refer contacts for repairs, painting and house cleaning. Depending on how long a seller has lived in a home, several visits may be made and the "to do" list is re-prioritized.
My goal with Buyers has always been to make a "Smart Buy"- - one with a good location that needs little work but offers the best resale. Over the last few years, my transferees with Abbott Labs, Kraft or AbbVie have been even quicker to make improvements and repairs, sometimes before they move in, so they can enjoy the changes sooner.
Since 1994, I have earned several CENTURY 21® sales awards. The ultimate CENTURY 21® Centurion award is our industry equivalent to the Emmy or Oscar which I have earned almost every year. I have also placed in the top 10 of all agents within the CENTURY 21® Chicagoland Region the last few years and placed in the top 1% of all agents in Chicago. But I am just as proud to have earned several of our top customer service awards over the years within our office based on client feedback compiled from surveys sent to families following each closing.
In June 2006, I finished my MBA at Lake Forest Graduate School of Management, during which I elected to take three of the international trips offered to Europe, Asia and Brazil with an emphasis in International Marketing. We competed in teams, not unlike Donald Trump's television show, "The Apprentice", before it got silly, solving real business problems for real companies overseas. The experience was unbelievable and took us to London, Berlin, Warsaw, Cambridge, Beijing, Bangkok, Rio & Sau Paulo.
I think I am lucky in that I am one of those people who get to do what they love for a living. Clients describe me as high-energy and hands-on. I enjoy working with people, solving problems, doing research and playing detective. A decade in advertising and sales has prepared me to do a better job at marketing and negotiating for my clients. My passion for home, garden and architecture gives me great ideas to "stage" homes so they show their best. My experience from moving twelve times with two children and living in six states has given me first-hand knowledge of the stresses and challenges families face when up-rooting their lives. I look forward to helping you buy or sell and walking you through a stress-free closing. I have helped some families in as many as five transactions. I know what I am doing and do it more than full-time and will personally handle your closing from start to finish.

" Being able to maintain my sense of humor during the pressure of real estate negotiations, being diplomatic and tactful makes the real estate transaction more successful."

"The secret to a successful move lies with your Realtor."
As a wife in the corporate world, "Hi! We're moving!" were words of anxiety and misgivings. I heard those words sixteen times in twenty-five years so my moving experiences are the basis of my service to you. Some were good, some not so good but I know from first-hand experience the challenges of making a move successful especially if you are making that move with small children or teens. It is my goal to make your experience as stress free as possible by taking care of all the details, whether you are selling your home on this end or buying a home locally, so you can focus on the important things - your family.
When my interest isn't focused on my clients I enjoy learning new technology, cooking, decorating my home and college basketball.especially during March Madness.
Whether buying or selling, there are so many wonderful aspects of Lake County: charming historic downtowns like Antioch, Grayslake, Libertyville, Lake Bluff, Lake Forest, and Long Grove; award winning schools; pro-active communities; a great commuter system; and not to be forgotten - an unprecedented forest preserve system where you can bike, hike, canoe, and picnic from Chicago to Wisconsin. And then there is Chicago.the best kept secret in the Midwest. Where else can you shop 'til you drop on the Magnificent Mile, dine on many ethnic foods, support two Major League Baseball teams, professional football, basketball and hockey, museums, a great theatre district, concerts, clubs and so much more.
I can assist you in finding the right area that suits your family and give you advice on making the right choice. Ask for references from my previous buyers, several of which I have helped move into to the area, out, and back again. My sales experience of the last eighteen years speaks for itself. In this changing market, I continue to master new technology for marketing your home, focus on client relationships, negotiating skills, and listening so I can serve you BEST. I am with you from offer to closing- making sure everything goes smoothly. So when the key is in your hand or the last box has been loaded on the truck, you can move forward with your new exciting adventure.
And the key to selecting that REALTOR® lies with you.

Comments: Read my clients' comments about me..
She is extremely organized and kept us updated. She had a clear and aggressive marketing plan. Her commitment to service is like no other agent. We worked with a couple of agents before and they never delivered what they promised. We knew she would provide us excellent service but, she exceeded our expectations.
Renee is not only on top of the real estate market - she is one step ahead. She would inform us of the current real estate market and what her research showed in the near future. Her ideas and plans on marketing the home showed us she is a seasoned real estate agent.
If and when we have to move again we would no doubt work with Renee again. We have and always will recommend her to our friends and family.
Sari and Brian
My husband and I have worked with 6 realtors in the last 11 years , and Renee was by far the most superior. We recommend Renee for the following three reasons. Renee is a creative problem solver, she's a very hard worker and is an excellent communicator.
Renee is an outstanding agent! I truly believe that if we had not hired Renee Devedjian, our house would still be for sale. Her creativity, work ethic and communication skills make her one of the best in her field.
Bottom line - She is the best!
Laurie and Scott
I moved here from Philadelphia six weeks ago with very little knowledge about this area. Pairing me up with Renee, who is a native of this area and knows it like the back of her hand, was perfect. She took the extra time to help me to understand the feel of the neighborhoods and towns, and was endlessly patient with me as I came into a full understanding about where I'd feel most at home.
Renee just wasn't selling me a house. She helped make one of my life's biggest transitions a smooth and pleasant experience. I have moved many times, and I have to say it's been the best experience!
We would like to express our gratitude and great satisfaction with Renee Devedjian's real estate services. We were at a time in our lives in which we had to purchase a home during an economically unstable time point in this country's history. Renee provided us with outstanding service and reassurance in the face of a challenging real estate market. Her patience and perseverance over eight months was finally culminated in us buying a home that we feel will help us comfortablely build our lives. We highly recommend anyone to utilize Renee Devedjian's expertise in real estate. I know that we ourselves will confidently recommend her to friends looking to purchase a home.
