Once a winner, always a winner. Pam MacPherson, President of the MacPherson Group at @properties Christie’s International Real Estate, can’t help but believe in the power of a team. A lifelong athlete, she participated in a variety of sports while growing up, ultimately landing a coveted setter position on the volleyball team at Duke.
MacPherson takes that teamwork sensibility to her profession every day as a realtor with @properties Christie’s International Real Estate. “I always knew I wanted to lead a team,” MacPherson says. Her office is located in Winnetka but she and her team cover a wide range of luxury markets all across Chicago and the suburbs. This dedicated, enthusiastic group includes: Western Suburbs Specialists Emily Gangwer and Lori Stellwagen; North Shore Specialists Trish Herakovich, Lori Hooten, Andrea Miller, and Wendy Smith; City Specialists Kate Murlas, Courtney Otis, and Molly Weisman; Staging Specialist Xochitl Sanchez; Business Manager Anne Warnsman; and Transaction Manager Fallon English. All are well-known throughout the industry for their honesty, integrity, and ingenuity.
Each member of the MacPherson Group has a particular area of expertise, yet they work together seamlessly to provide the ultimate in concierge services for their clients. One of the main advantages of working with the group is the system they have in place to make the most of every buying or selling experience and to help with any issues sellers and buyers typically encounter along the way. Their team includes professionals who provide decluttering services, staging, and contractor referrals. A high priority is put on creating advanced marketing tools and the group works diligently on all marketing—print, social media, and digital—to reach not only city and suburban markets but also national and international markets. With so many experts working together, they have cornered the market on community insights garnering the largest selection of off-market listings.
What MacPherson finds most fulfilling is trying to be the matchmaker between her clients and their “dream” house. “We try to be very creative,” she says. “We have strong connections with people in construction and extensive remodeling experience. It’s very hard to find the absolutely perfect house for someone. We need to be innovative with how we can help clients create that perfect house for themselves. I really do love that challenge. And then when we’re listing, we have our own stager and decluttering expert so we come in and help transform the house to be the perfect house for the buyer’s eyes.”
MacPherson grew up on the North Shore. “I think real estate has always been in my blood. My mom has always done various construction projects. Probably every three years she would add on to or remodel our house. So, I got to watch our house change over time while growing up.”
MacPherson is a person who loves to move. “I always love the next adventure, the next project!” In fact, when she and her husband were first married, they moved five times in four years. “I always had to research communities and learn a lot about the areas. As I was already doing it for myself, I figured I might as well get my license and do it for other people.”
When not selling houses, MacPherson enjoys spending time with her husband and three children and cheering on the Northwestern football team.
When you sign on with the MacPherson Group, you know you will receive the benefit of their huge network, impeccable customer service, strong negotiation skills, extensive market knowledge, and unflappable attitudes.
“One of my friends bought me a sign that says, ‘Chaos Manager.’ I love it. I do very well in chaos,” she laughs.
