I am honored to be able to introduce myself. I have lived in Lake Bluff my whole life. I went to St. Mary’s grade school and Lake Forest High School. During this time I have amassed many friends and a long list of who to call when something breaks, so much so, I have the reputation for “ask Marie she’ll know someone”! I love village life in Lake Bluff and our small town celebrations, Halloween in particular. Lake Bluff really knows how to do Halloween. Four years ago I started a Halloween Costume drive for children in need and to date have collected and donated over 1000 costumes to schools and organizations in the North Chicago/ Waukegan areas. I’m passionate about my family; I have two daughters, Jennifer who lives in Chicago with her husband Joe and Ashlee, who lives in Lake Bluff with her husband JP. I enjoy antiquing with my friends and baking. I bake every day sometimes late into the night. I get great pleasure in treating my friends and passionately believe life is just better with chocolate!

Client Experiences

"Marie Colette was wonderful! She was always available to look at houses with us or to meet with inspectors, etc. and was very knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. "

"Marie has been wonderful to work with. She and the Griffith, Grant and Lackey team, have approached selling our home with creative thinking and deep experience working in the Lake Bluff market. We look forward to working with this knowledgeable, enthusiastic and skilled Realtor. And, perhaps most importantly, we feel Marie is passionate about the potential for our precious cottage."

"We Loved Marie! She is a local so knows so much about the area! She never made us feel rushed or silly. She gave us her full undivided attention.  She was quick to respond and worked on our schedule. I would highly recommend Marie, specially if you are looking in the Lake Bluff/Lake Forest area!"
