Shaun Raugstad

With over 17 years of experience Shaun continues to pride himself on providing his clients with the absolute best customer experience possible.  With over $300,000,000 in closed sales volume and representing over 600 transactions Shaun continues to be within the top 1% of all realtors, in all companies within the Chicagoland area since starting his career in 2004. Shaun comes from a family of builders with his grandfather building homes since the 1940's, his father building homes since the 1960's, and Shaun himself working in the trades throughout High School and College.  Even Shaun's brother is a well-established home inspector.  It's in the Raugstad blood!

Shaun graduated from Northern Illinois University with a degree in Special Education, and despite his love of working with the students, he never lost the appetite for working around houses. Deciding to become a realtor was a natural choice for Shaun.  It allows him to combine his formal special education training of creating individualized plans for each situation with his wealth of construction knowledge giving those that work with him the best real estate experience possible. Shaun's core belief for any sales professional is that they should know their product inside and out and you can be rest assured he knows all the ins and outs of everything real estate related.  He will be a valued resource for years to come, well beyond the buying and selling process.  

Shaun remains motivated and enthusiastic and you'll find yourself at ease with his no pressure yet informative personality.   Shaun's ability to think outside the box is where his experience really shines. His high percentage of winning multiple offers for buyers and keeping contracts together for sellers through tough situations is incredible.

D.M Home Buyer:

Shaun is an excellent realtor! He's an easy going, honest, no frills guy whose knowledge of real estate goes far far beyond buying and selling homes. Shaun found us the perfect home for our family and we're forever grateful for the time and care he put forth to make the entire process smooth. Shaun's attention to detail is amazing. The service he provides is well beyond his duty. By the time we finalized everything with Shaun we considered him a friend. Yes, you can find hard workers out there, but you don't always find a person with such special interpersonal skills. Shaun has that perfect combination of "he loves what he does for a living" and has very real and accurate intuitions that aid him in all aspects. We will never use another realtor again. He's stuck with us!

"It's been my experience that most Real Estate Brokers are only concerned with buying and selling a home for their commission. Shaun absolutely changed my view in that regard. Finding a new home with Shaun was probably the most painless experience I have had in the real estate industry. Not only was he able to deal with my ever changing wants and needs. He used his impressive knowledge of the real estate industry and market trends to help me truly find what I was looking for. If you are looking for a Real Estate Broker who genuinely is interested in finding the home of your dreams without mortgaging your future. Than I could not possibly recommend a better person."
