Joining forces in 1999, Carney and Mrowiec have created one of the most successful residential sales partnerships on the North Shore. With more than $780 million in career sales, this Griffith, Grant & Lackie Realtors team is consistently ranked in the Top 1 percent in volume for Illinois and in the Top 2 percent nationally.
Why do we love what we do? Everyone has a unique story. We love learning about our clients and helping them take the next step on their journey.
2020 success was due to? In many ways, it was the perfect storm—quarantine, unrest in Chicago, and workplace flexibility created the opportunity to move from the city. Lake Forest and Lake Bluff had a lot of inventory, great values, and the bucolic setting which the quarantine aided in making even more desirable.
Highlight of your 2020 volume? After a bleak first quarter, we closed more than $60 million in the final three with approximately 53 transactions. We haven’t experienced a pace like that since 2001.
What sets you apart from your competition? We are obviously not the same in personality, style, demeanor, or views but we truly complement each other in our work.
What is the first thing you tell your clients? Whether buying or selling, it’s a process—it really can’t be forced. One needs to trust in the journey and know our experience will help you navigate that process.
Most looking forward to in 2021 ? Leaving 2020 behind and having a maskless dinner with family and friends!
