Details Make the Difference
...especially when buying or selling a house. And no one manages them better than Ann Jones. Over two decades of business experience as partner in a major global consulting firm, and a track record as a respected North Shore Realtor have made Ann an attentive listener, exceptional negotiator, supportive mentor and skilled facilitator.
Raised on the North Shore, Ann attended Joseph Sears School and New Trier High School. She knows the various communities well having either lived, schooled or worked in almost all of them. Currently residing in Lake Forest, Ann serves on the Women's Auxiliary Board of the Lake Forest Hospital and is a member of the Kenilworth Garden Club. Ann's invaluable local knowledge enables her to both broaden the marketing exposure of her clients' homes as well as point her clients in the right direction in their quest to purchase a new home.

Why am I different?
With over twenty years as a corporate executive and partner with Andersen Consulting (AKA, Accenture), I developed proficient technical skills early on. With this background, I know how to market a home across multiple media and platforms. I often had to relocate frequently both nationally and internationally. As such, I have a strong appreciation for what families go through as they move. I track a real estate transaction much in the same way that I used to manage multi-million dollar projects, when I was consultant.
My clients use words like: "professionalism, tech-savvy, detailed-oriented, straightforward, honest and responsive" to describe my approach when they refer me to others. My goal is to create long term client relationships through exceptional service.
"It was a pleasure to work with Ann and I would highly recommend her services as a real estate agent. She is professional, consultative and knowledgeable. Ann provided us with excellent advice and helped us sell our house in record time in a tough market. She far exceeded our expectations." - Gail and John Jacobson
"Ann Jones brings welcome business acumen and clear-headed thinking to the quixotic world of buying and selling houses. She knows how to sort through listings and recent market activity and pull together information for a client, and she presents it articulately. She delivers on time. Added to that, comes a friendly spirit, a heart of gold, and sound advice. We knew we were in good hands with Ann." - Marion and Gene Cartwright
"What a wonderfully professional experience. Ann was able to accurately evaluate the market with extremely businesslike and accurate graphs and charts, coordinate everything we needed and move our house in three weeks. She took into consideration our personal attachments to the house and was able to still make us comfortable moving the house for a mutually agreed upon price. We would recommend Ann to anyone." - Pam and David Waud
"Ann's honesty, intellect and perseverance helped us find the perfect home. We've worked with several agents over the years, but Ann's highly analytic nature and expertise with contracts assured us that she could land us the best deal. Ann's patience and integrity contrast sharply with the strong arm approach practiced by many real estate agents. She demonstrates again and again that she's committed to her clients' best interests and will dedicate the time necessary to deliver top-notch service." - Allison and Dave Neumeister
"Ann Jones came highly recommended by local residents and exceeded our highest expectations in helping us relocate from Iowa to Lake Forest. Thorough in her attention to detail, and unstinting in her attention to the client's priorities, Ann proved uniquely capable and efficient." - Ralph and Mary Keen
"My husband and I began our house hunt when I was 7 months pregnant and moved when our son was 1 month old. We already had a 2 year old daughter so needless to say we were busy. Ann made, what could have been a very painful process, pleasant. The first time we met she travelled into Chicago to accommodate my schedule and was extremely flexible with her time on very long and full weekend days packed with visits. We cast a wide net, all the way from Evanston to Lake Forest, and Ann patiently took us through each city identifying the various neighborhoods and schools. She has lived on the North Shore her entire life and has extremely deep knowledge and an instinct for value and quality. She is analytical in her approach and had very insightful data to support our search and the negotiations, which she managed honorably and effectively. We settled on Lake Forest, and even before we closed, Ann was opening up her network and treating us like a neighbor and a friend. In short, we love our new home and we loved working with Ann." - Laurence Hill
"Ann's personal and results-oriented approach kept us on plan when selling/renting my parent's home in Lake Forest. Ann is a great strategist who understands the value of marketing, market research and keeping her clients informed... Because results matter, I highly recommend Ann as a Realtor and advisor." - Chuck Nustra
"Ann is a very knowledgeable businesswoman and wonderful advisor. She approaches real estate with total professionalism. The selling price exceeded our expectations and we were able to negotiate a closing date that was convenient for us. We can't say enough good things about Ann and highly recommend her." - Nan and Mark Goebel
"My husband and I appreciated Ann's methodical yet enthusiastic approach to finding our home. Ann has a rare ability to see potential, anticipate needs while negotiating with the skill of a diplomat. She is our only choice when we move again." - Maureen Costello
"Having moved seven times in the past 20 years we have a good sense of what it means to have a good realtor: excellent negotiation skills, attention to detail, adaptability and that rare quality of helping you make your new house into a home by helping you find anything from painters, to baby-sitters, to touring schools. Ann did more than meet our expectations -- she exceeded them." - Meg and Steve Barnhart
"I highly recommend Ann Jones. She is capable, practical, professional and wise. She guided us through the sales process and we sold our house in 27 days during a very difficult market. I am very appreciative for her and all of her real estate knowledge and experience." - Marilyn Henry
