Monica McGinley "in a nutshell"

Over the last 17 years, I have spent an uncountable amount of hours “doing” real estate. I take great pride in presenting Southern Illinois properties to buyers moving to the Marion and surrounding areas which includes, but is not limited to, Herrin, Carterville, Johnston City, Goreville, Carbondale and the beautiful Lake of Egypt. People always seem somewhat amazed when they arrive here for the first time and discover the amount of attractions, activities and outdoor opportunities available. Southern Illinois excels in scenic and recreational adventures such as Ferne Cliff, Garden of the Gods, Shawnee National Forest, and Lake of Egypt marina/camping area . Area attractions include the Shawnee Wine Trail (over 50 wineries and event centers,) Bald Knob Cross, Giant City Lodge and numerous hiking and biking trails. Being close to a major university (Southern Illinois University) also adds both an educational and cultural vibe to our area. Even with all of these features, maybe the most attractive reason to live in Southern Illinois remains the “hometown” feel you get with everyday living.

In my career, I take special pride and care in helping those first time buyers in finding their perfect home and assisting them over the years as their family and needs change.
With over 25 years in the overall real estate environment, selling, abstracting and closing home loans, I am experienced in assisting property buyers in qualifying for loans and choosing the best options in an ever changing market. Just as important when it comes time to sell a property, I am able to provide a strategy I will use which will highlight their property to its best advantage for a quick sell.

I love talking about real estate and can educate a prospective buyer or seller on most aspects of the process. Please feel free to contact me anytime you want to have a conversation or just have some questions about YOUR options in the real estate market. Talk to you soon.

Monica was professional throughout our dealings in every sense of the word. Thanks to Monica, I successfully purchased my first house for a great price! I would highly recommend Monica and greatly appreciate all she has done for me!

I called into my local Remax office and Monica was assigned to me. She was very helpful right off the bat. She met with me on days that were convenient for my husband and I and she never showed us houses we couldn’t afford. We made a deal on a house that… (more)
