My name is Lisa Grimes and my  main focus is to offer unsurpassed service to my clients. My constant communication, tireless work ethic, attention to detail, and friendly empathetic nature set me apart.   I believe in smart pricing, extensive internet marketing, and open communication.   

I have been selling Real Estate in the Chicagoland area, with a concentration in Oak Park, River Forest and Forest Park since 2013.  I have deep family roots in the area giving me extensive knowledge of the neighborhoods, education options, activities and resources.  I'm thrilled to combine my love of the community and architecture with the desire to work with people to offer the best real estate service possible whether you are looking to buy or sell.

“When we were relocating our family from downtown Chicago to the Oak Park/River Forest area, we asked friends for a recommendation for an excellent realtor.  They sent us to Lisa Grimes and we are so thrilled they did.  Lisa has an unparalleled grasp of the community in which she works and her knowledge assisted our move in innumerable ways.   When you are house-hunting from out of town, you are often blind to the nuances of location, logistics, and culture that are as important to your happiness as your physical house. That’s where Lisa has such a leg up on most other realtors. She’s a mom, she knows the community inside and out, and she is interested not just in finding you the right house, but in making sure you are integrated into the community, too.  Lisa also has a keen and discerning sense of the value of properties.   She listened to and understood our needs throughout the process.  Lisa’s honesty and integrity reassured us during challenging negotiations.  She always made us a priority.   She is patient and understands the many emotions that come with uprooting a family.  She displays excellence in every aspect of her work and we consider ourselves incredibly lucky to have had her on our side. “
