What makes Real Estate with Purpose different?

As an experienced Evanston real estate agent, resident of Northwest Evanston’s Central Street corridor, and a tireless advocate of this great community on Chicago’s North Shore, I am intimately aware of what makes our community desirable for current and prospective residents.

Whether you plan to buy or sell a home in Evanston, my primary goal is to make sure your real estate needs and wants are delivered at the highest possible level.  My second goal is to reinvest in our community through my Real Estate with Purpose initiative where 10% of my commission goes to financially supporting the local nonprofits, charities and organizations that work daily to improve Evanston’s neighborhoods.

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

What my customers are saying:


“Working with Natalie was a great experience. She was proactive in sending listing she thought I might be interested in, quickly arranged viewings, and was a great resource for real estate advice. She made me feel like I was her only client, though I’m sure I was not. She even donates 10% of her commission to a charity of my choice, which is amazing.”


Paul & Julie, home buyers in Evanston; the Real Estate with Purpose donation made on their behalf supported The Tree House Humane Society, an area cat shelter

 

 

“Natalie Smith was absolutely fantastic to work with. She walked us through the home-buying process, soup to nuts, when we first started and was always a step ahead of our questions along the way. The Home Buying process can be stressful, but Natalie was like human Xanax every time we chatted. I cannot recommend Natalie more to future home buyers. Thank you for everything, Natalie!”


John & Jen, first-time home buyers in Lake View; the Real Estate with Purpose donation made on their behalf allowed a local under-privileged youth to attend Summer camp in Wisconsin

 

 

“What else can we say about Natalie, we now consider her a friend. She went above and beyond the call of duty. We always felt like we were getting an honest opinion and never felt pressured. We would recommend her to any of our friends and family.”


Matt & Kelly, first time home buyers in Norwood Park; the Real Estate with Purpose donation made on their behalf supported an area family in need

 

“Natalie Smith did an excellent job for me. She represented me as the buyer and the seller which is not always easy to do. She was very professional and her follow through was excellent. She extended that extra effort that many agents do not extend.”


Ron, real estate investor in East Lake View; the Real Estate with Purpose donation made on his behalf went to support a local child’s dream through the Make-A-Wish Foundation

 

“By far the best real estate agent I have ever worked with.”


Paul, sold his Edgewater condo; a Real Estate with Purpose donation was made on his behalf to the Infant Welfare Society of Evanston
