As a Chicago native I was born and raised on the North Side of the city. After graduating from Arizona State University I returned to Chicago to follow my true passion in Real Estate. I’ve called various neighborhoods ‘home’ including Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Rogers Park and West Ridge. Since 2002, I’ve lived with my husband, four daughters and high-energy (i.e. crazy) dog in Norwood Park on the Northwest side.

My success in the industry has been built on the principles of always putting my clients' interests first and tirelessly going above and beyond to provide the highest quality service and experience possible. My ability to be honest and upfront with my clients while being patient to their needs sets me apart. I feel it’s important to get to know my clients to better understand their housing and real estate goals. Then, together, we can determine a plan to achieve their goal.

Over the past 2 decades I’ve helped many clients find their perfect home, sell in a competitive market and built a successful business on referrals. My clients can see and feel how much this business means to me. They sense my passion, trust my expertise and feel comfortable putting their biggest investment in my hands. Over 90% of my business is from past clients, referrals and positive word-of-mouth.

As a member of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, I am backed by the support and global resources of Chicago’s most prolific real estate company. Technology and Marketing is constantly evolving and improving. Knowing that Coldwell Banker stays at the forefront of the latest trends and marketing avenues allows me to focus on my clients and the best ways to achieve their goals.

"As a first-time home buyer I had many uncertainties about what I should look for when purchasing a home as well as many questions regarding the home buying process in general. Jean displayed a great knowledge for the business as well as a true patience with me to answer all my questions and concerns. She took into account my wishes for what I was looking for in a home and scheduled showings around my schedule. She helped me make a seamless transition to a homeowner. I highly recommend Jean Sekera!"

"My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Jean. As first time buyers we had a lot of questions and Jean was able to help us every step of the way! She was so patient and knowledgeable about the process, maintenance and care of a home and really helped us to be able to think in terms of the future! She was very diligent about pointing out things to us that we would have not thought of ourselves and really wanted to make sure we purchased a quality home. I highly recommend Jean to find your home!"
