Your goals. My strengths
My strengths lie in attention to detail, conducting deep research and creative problem solving. Beyond that, my background as a commercial real estate attorney means that I know my way around a contract and negotiation is my second language.

I invite you to contact me to discuss your next steps. 

I'm licensed in both Illinois & Michigan.

Why Michigan
My passion for Michigan dates back to childhood, spending summers in the idyllic Village of Michiana. It is also tied to my alma mater, the University of Michigan. Now, I eagerly share that love for the state with those who seek refuge from the city or simply want to summer or relocate to the Harbor Country area. 
Primary areas: Michiana, Grand Beach, New Buffalo, Lakeside, Union Pier, Harbert, Sawyer, Three Oaks, Baroda, Buchanan and Benton Harbor

Why Illinois?
Lincolnwood was my childhood home. I still drive by the mid-century modern split-level which housed precious experiences. Today, I call Wilmette home and have lived here for over 21 years! I love the North Shore and am excited to share all its offerings with you. And having lived in the city pre- and post- law school, I'm happy to assist with a move in or out of Chicago.
Primary areas: Chicago’s North Shore including Wilmette, Winnetka, Evanston, Kenilworth and of course, Lincolnwood. 

Specialties: Second homes, relocation, divorce, estates.

Please reach out to learn more about the value of your home or to discuss your next move.

"We were so fortunate to have been referred to Karen Shoshana. We instantly felt a connection given the care she took to understand all of our criteria in a search for a new home. She asked so many great questions and we felt she had truly listened as she honed in on factors important to us. Likewise, with each listing she sought detailed feedback about what we we liked and didn't, so that her focus on new listings were a match for us. 

Once she found the house that we ended up falling in love with she worked tirelessly with us on strategizing every step of the process. She was very attentive and responsive to all of our inquiries and helped shepherd the process through to completion. It was not only painless, it was pleasant.  She was very generous with her time and we came to the point where we were almost sad the search was over as working with Karen had been so wonderful.

We would strongly recommend her services without reservation and consider anyone lucky to have her on their team.  We are grateful for her energy and talents, and that she found our dream home will forever be appreciated!"

“[In a home] You’re making an investment in what could be the most important asset you’ll ever have. The right moment is when you know where you’re going to live for a while, when you find the home that fits your family, and when it’s at level that fits in with your income and ability to make a down payment and then I would get a very long mortgage… 30-year mortgage and the rate will be fabulous, and there is no sense waiting if those conditions exist."
