"From the very first house she showed us to sitting with us at the closing, Shannon was a consummate real estate professional. We were new to the area and Shannon's knowledge of this area was a difference maker for us. She is pragmatic with her advice, and listens to your needs. That was important to us in that we've been "upsold" in the past. Shannon quickly understood what we were looking for and what was important to us in the purchase of our home. She keeps things moving, serving as a central hub for her clients, bankers and mortgage professionals, and all of the auxiliary professionals involved in buying a home. This was the fastest offer to close process we've ever experienced and Shannon was the key to that. She worked with us to make sure our pre-qualification was rock solid. Because of that, we were able to go from offer to closing in 9 business days - and over the holiday week between Christmas and New Years. We were amazed with Shannon's ability to keep things moving. I highly recommend her and look forward to working with her in the future and recommending her to anyone who needs an organized, connected, compassionate and fun realtor. "

"I certainly wanted to get a thank you message out your way. We are so appreciative of how you took such great care of our client and the nurturing you provided to her. She grew to feel so comfortable with you which certainly enabled a transition away from the home she knew for 40+ years – quite a bit easier. Also, your communication – superior and top notch! Thank you for the extra effort and going the distance it took – especially in those early days. We will most certainly keep you in mind for other opportunities when they come up that way."

"When looking for a real estate agent to sell my house, I interviewed Shannon Towson, along with others. It was immediately obvious that she was the ideal agent to work with because of her knowledge, background in real estate, and enthusiasm. During the entire time I worked with her she was always available, worked hard to make sure that my house was photographed and advertised well, and her help with staging the house was invaluable. Her knowledge of properties and the market are two of her many strong attributes along with the pleasure of working with someone who truly cared about presenting my house in its best light. She was absolutely a delight to work with, and did a fabulous job in selling my house quickly. I highly recommend Shannon to anyone who is looking for a hardworking, dedicated agent who is also lovely and personable."

Bought a single-family home in Deerfield 2020.

“Shannon is highly skilled and experienced in handling relocation transactions.  I had to move my family of five from Arizona to Deerfield right in the heart of the COVID-19 pandemic.  We had to purchase our house “sight unseen” due to travel restrictions that were in place.  Shannon used all the tools available from virtual walk-throughs, FaceTime walk-throughs and video to help us tour the properties virtually and narrow our search.  There were many challenges along the way and Shannon rose to the occasion every time.  I would highly recommend her for any real estate transaction!”

Bought a single-family home in Gurnee in 2020.

“My experience with Shannon was amazing.  Shannon has a demonstrated history in her field which made the process much easier for me as a first-time homebuyer.  Shannon is quick to act and very responsive to any questions I had, which helped me sleep easier at night.  Shannon has a high attention to detail which helped us get the most out of the sellers in terms of price concessions and punch list items.  Beyond being an effective professional, Shannon always has a good attitude and high energy which made long tours visiting homes much easier.  I would highly recommend Shannon to anyone looking for a Real Estate Professional.”

Bought a single-family home in Evanston in 2019.

Rented a single-family home in Lincolnshire in 2018.

“Shannon has helped me buy and rent houses for the last 15 years.  She is extremely knowledgeable on staging properties and negotiation with homeowners and tenants.  Shannon has repeatedly passed up a quick commission in order to find the right fit for her client.  This is the reason I have used her services for so long. I always felt that she had my back with any questions or issues I have with real estate.  In addition, Shannon goes the extra mile, such as helping a new tenant get settled or running an errand even after the contracts are signed.  I know that if there is any issue, I can contact her and she will help get it resolved in a fair way.  Shannon is very responsive and easy to contact.  When I have a vacancy, I send her an email or call and I know it’s in good hands and I’ll have applications soon.”

“Shannon is an outstanding real estate agent.  She helped me find my first home in 2012 and educated me and guided me in finding and managing my first investment property.  She’s extremely knowledgeable and she takes the time to get to know her clients so she can find the perfect home for you to consider.  Shannon goes above and beyond what I know most agents do and she does this because she’s hard-working, professional and she really does want the best for her clients.  I highly recommend Shannon enthusiastically!”

Bought a single-family home in Hawthorn Woods in 2017. 

"I cannot recommend Shannon strongly enough as a real estate professional.  She is honest and forthright in her interactions.  She worked tirelessly in assisting us in all areas of this process of home buying.  Shannon always listened and did an excellent job in helping us identify possible homes.  She was patient during the decision-making process and was NEVER pushy about a property or tried to influence us to any property unless it had everything we were looking for in a home.  She is a down-to-earth professional who really does work hard for her clients.  I actually enjoyed the process with her and always looked forward to visiting potential homes she had found.  She was a strong advocate for us in the negotiations and closing process and was always on the ball with her response times.  You will not regret calling Shannon if you are buying or selling a home.  She is outstanding. She’ll be the first call I make when I buy or sell again.”
