Corinne Guest REALTOR® in Barrington – Certified Luxury Homes Specialist

Choosing a real estate agent is hard enough when you’re buying or selling a home, but when we talk specifically about the luxury home market you’ll want your agent to understand what it takes to buy and make a sound investment or sell for maximum value. Consider the following:

Market Knowledge and Skills

The right luxury agent will be more knowledge and have considerable experience working in the luxury home market. They’ll have a history of working with HNWI (high net worth individuals) and be knowledgeable about the upper tier market and have a solid track record of success. This can be a clear indicator of a market savvy agent. Ask yourself,  “Does this agent have the resources and skills to help me achieve my real estate goals?”

Training and Affiliations

Has the agent undergone additional training in the luxury home market place, furthered their education if you will? Corinne is a member of the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing, allowed only by taking their course and receiving the certification. She has achieved the level of guild member, the highest that can be awarded and is based on luxury home sales consistency. This provides access to luxury marketing programs for her clients.

Digital Marketing & Technology

Digital marketing can be extremely useful when listing and marketing homes but is also beneficial for agents that focus on marketing to and working with buyers. We have a digital marketing strategy to provide maximum exposure to our luxury listings.

Testimonials & Communication

Buying or selling a home can be stressful. You’ll need an open line of communication with your agent and trust that you’ll be looked after from start to finish. What better way to find out how an agent fairs than reading past client testimonials.

Barrington Luxury Real Estate Market

Barrington IL is a Buyer’s Market

The media reports on the general real estate landscape and there’s no doubt, across the country we’ve got sellers markets, even extreme sellers markets where inventory is lacking. Here in Barrington, the real estate market recovered well with more sales per year since 2014 but the average marketing time hovers around 5-6 months.

The luxury market has an extended market time well beyond that giving luxury home buyers a great choice of homes. Foreclosures and short sales are now in short supply as sellers are no longer upside down. Our home values increase in price at a slow but steady pace.

Luxury Homes are Selling

In 2017 we saw 67 homes at $1 Million or above sell in the Barrington Inverness areas. Buyers are looking for good sized family homes but no mansions. Only 8 sales above $2 Million. The average market time for those was 695 days. More luxury home sales occur in South Barrington, Inverness and Barrington Hills than the other villages in our zip code.

Luxury homes here are primary residences, we are not a second homes area in general. We do have some snowbirds who leave for the winter and head to warmer climates. The trend is they eventually sell the home here in Illinois.

Relocation

If you are moving to Barrington take a look at our relocation guide. We’ve created community pages to help you begin to familiarize yourself with the area. Our home search provides available homes and more including walk scores, allocated schools, and local sales data. We’ve created homes by school name in case you already know what schools you want. Visit our lifestyle pages and learn why hiring a buyers agent is in your best interests. Check out our top10 resources page to help you decide if Barrington might be the right place for you to live.

As your agent Corinne will be your best guide to the area and the right home. Is being near shopping and dining important to you? Do you want your closest neighbor to be just over the fence or is acreage what you prefer? We’ll listen and introduce you to properties in the perfect Barrington village just right for your lifestyle. We want you to find a home that has the space you need, the style you love, in a location that allows you to live your ideal life – your happy place.

The Barrington area is home to golf courses with homes, gated communities, new construction, acreage, village historic homes including Victorian, Queen Anne and Craftsman styles; we have several neighborhoods with lakes of all sizes up to 85 acres, large equestrian farms and smaller facilities. The village center has homes on standard size lots and if you like to be in walking distance to shops this might be your choice. Many older homes have been torn down to make way for newer, larger homes while keeping that historic feel and designed to conform to the village look and feel..

Barrington is a country suburban community with a very low crime rate. Minor theft is the most common crime. Our country suburban properties need well and septic systems, the village is plugged into mains water and sewer. Our school district is revered with high report cards for all levels of education. The weather is 4 seasons. We have mild spring and fall seasons with reasonably hot summers and winters that bring snow. There’s no lack of restaurants, theaters and sports leisure to enjoy, yet it’s not far to the city of Chicago and surrounding communities which bring everything a large metro area can offer. We are centrally located for the states of Michigan and Wisconsin both of which offer summer and winter vacation spots and leisure.

Search For Your Perfect Home

We provide you with the most innovative search technology available by creating the ultimate source for Barrington real estate focusing on helping you find your lifestyle. Our searches include Equestrian, country, waterfront, swimming pool homes, golf community homes, active adult living, new construction, luxury townhomes, estate properties and mansions. You can also find vacant land to build your dream luxury home with many acre plus lots in desirable neighborhoods.

Come and explore our large real estate guide with all the available real estate listings. Our homes are provided by the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) and includes homes recently reduced. Search by property type or price range, and check out the square footage of home sizes. If lot size is important we’ve got homes in the village on smaller lots and homes around the center in other Barrington villages that are on 1 or 2 acres up to 100. Most single family homes are pet friendly but fences are not permitted in the homes with larger lots.

You can find homes that have theaters, wine cellars, guest suites, in law arrangements, nanny suites, game rooms, entertainment areas with bars, second and even third kitchens, and more luxury home features. If large acreage is what you need, we have that too, some of our upper end properties include heli-pads and large equestrian farms.

We’ve added a search by elementary school name and middle school names. This website also provides information on many of Barrington’s subdivisions.
