About Marti Corcoran

My Client-First Philosophy

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.

That said, in my experience as a Chicago real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.

This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.

So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home in the Chicago areas, please contact me.



"Marti Corcoran knows the Lincolnwood area so well! Her knowledge made us choose an area we weren't even considering but are so happy with our decision. We wouldn't have gotten the home of our dreams without her. We were able to rely on her negotiating skills and attention to detail without worrying about the outcome.

She's the best!"

"Marti Corcoran was a friend of my brother from high school but I had no contact with her since then. My brother recommended her so I thought it was worth hearing what she had to say. I felt very comfortable with her and her evaluation of the property plus her reputation was outstanding. So I saw no further reason to look for any other broker.

Very helpful with explanations since I had never sold before. She is great , a wonderful asset to the profession.

All very helpful. When I was looking for a property to buy when the house was sold Marti referred me to Debbie Schroeder of your agency. She was very helpful in finding me a new home within a few weeks. Great and knowledgeable staff!

I would recommend your Agency and Marti Corcoran to anyone looking to sell or buy. She made the whole process painless."


"Marti was extremely kind and understanding...a true professional with the right amounts of professionalism and personal empathy. We truly enjoyed working with her."


"Marti is an institution in Edgebrook.

Wouldn't think of listing with anyone other than her. She knows the neighborhood, values of the homes and her personal touch.

Marti handled everything very professionally and took the worries off my plate

How much more could be said about her. If there is an adjective missing up above, she would get that as well

I would deal with McMullen as long as Marti was the one I was dealing with.

If one wants to sell a house in Edgebrook without worrying about anything, Marti is the one to list the house with."


"Took a listing that needed repair and sold it at asking price with the buyer paying for repairs. Nice negotiations!!"

She was empathetic and considerate of our feelings in recommending changes to make to home more marketable. She helped us right-price the house reasonably and we feel that we got the best price and an excellent selection of buyers. She was always on top of every aspect of the sale process through closing-- including reminding me to cancel utilities the day before closing.

"A neighbor gave me Marti's name after she sold their family home in a short period of time. This is what I was looking for. When I contacted Marti she responded immediately, set up an appointment to come and look at the family home.

We had a lot of cleaning up to do and Marti always checked in with me to see how things were moving along. When the house was ready to be listed she sat down with all of us to show us all the comps in the area. She gave her professional opinion what we should list the home for. She listened to all of our opinions and we came up with the asking price.

Once the house was listed we received 2 offers the very next day!! We couldn't have been happier with her. I would recommend Marti when you're ready to sell. She's an expert!"


"Marti Cocoran impressed me with her patience at times when I was indecisive and wanted to see properties more than once. She was a partner to me as I considered properties and she picked up on the aspects of what I wanted in a new home and was able to find the perfect place for me.

She followed through with me during the inspections, mortgage and closing. She decreased my stress level with her calm explanations of aspects of the purchase that I had no prior experience with."


"Marti Corcoran is a SuperBroker. She went above and beyond the call of duty to assist in a difficult estate sale for us. Because the house was vacant and I am out of town, Marti willingly took on such additional duties as meeting contractors, taking out trash bins and making sure the grass was watered. She was astute about the market, practical in navigating complex transactions and compassionate in meeting the needs of our family. We are grateful to her for her generosity and service. Hire her!
