Milestone Realty LLC in downtown Highwood is a full-service residential real estate firm.
The firm was founded in 2004 by Shelley Lurie, who was the vice president of marketing with Red Seal Homes of Northbrook. Lurie has lived on the North Shore for over 40 years. She received her real estate license in 1978, at which time she started at Quinlan & Tyson Realty in Highland Park. During her years at Quinlan & Tyson, the company was first acquired by Merrill Lynch and then by Prudential Realty.
Lurie’s range of real estate experience covers communities such as Fort Sheridan, Highland Park, Highwood, Glencoe, Wilmette, Buffalo Grove, Deerfield, Lake Forest, Northbrook and Glenview.
“Of course, we are members of the North Shore Real Estate Board (NSBAR), so we list and access listings of all of the North Shore, Chicago Metropolitan areas, and all of the Northwest suburbs. We are members of the Illinois Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors. We enhance our presence on the world wide web so that our clients have all of the benefits of the bigger, national companies, while maintaining a strong, local, more personal level of service.”
Lurie has extensive knowledge of the redevelopment of the Town of Fort Sheridan, as Red Seal Homes was one of the main developers in charge of turning the former government property into a showplace of residential living.
“As Red Seal's Marketing VP, I oversaw almost all of the original sales and I was one of the new community’s first residents. Fort Sheridan has become a main focus in my life and my career."
Establishing the Milestone Realty office in Highwood allows Milestone staff to effectively cover the entire North Shore. Milestone Realtors have vast experience throughout the North Shore and Chicago.
