About Carol Juntunen

With over 20 years experience in the corporate world working for a Schaumburg-based Fortune 500 company, and several more years as the owner of a home repair and improvement business, I decided to bring my extensive negotiation, sales, and management experience, along with my home improvement expertise and business acumen to real estate. After having first been an agent in Seattle for several years, I moved back home to the Chicago area to be close to my elderly parents.

I focus on providing insights and guidance, educating and empowering you to make confident, informed real estate decisions, making it easier to achieve your goal to sell your house or purchase a home.  

How I make real estate easier:

Determining the value of your property in today's market depends more than ever on professional expertise and competence. As a Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA), I understand how a compelling price offers you the best chance to get the best return in the least amount of time.

Preparing your home for the market might mean moving furniture, clearing clutter and even making minor repairs and upgrades. With a background in art, home repairs and improvements and as a Certified Staging Consultant (CSC), I can help ensure that a little work up front will yield huge benefits in the end.

Marketing your home is a unique process and I'll develop a customized plan designed to put the full power of Baird & Warner's vast marketing resources behind the sale of your home. As an internet marketing expert (e-PRO), I excel in social media and keeping pace with the ever-growing technology landscape to promote your home on the internet.

There's an art to negotiating in order to assure that both parties are satisfied with the outcome of the transaction. This expertise is essential and as a Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE), I will negotiate strategically on your behalf to ensure that you receive the best price, timing, and terms possible.

Is it time for you to rightsize? When life happens and you've got too much house, it might be time to think simpler. As a Seniors (50+) Real Estate Specialist (SRES), I understand how life stages, health, and economic challenges can impact real estate choices. You may want to age in place, downsize, or sell your house to retire out of state. Let's explore all your options.

Are you the executor, administrator or trustee of an estate for which real estate needs to be sold? I understand how overwhelmed people feel when tasked with the responsibility of clearing out an entire house of someone's possessions, especially if you have emotional ties to them. As a Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist (CPRES), I realize that the probate process can be stressful and challenging...

  • Should you sell the house as-is? Or make a few repairs?
  • What do you do with all the stuff in the house?

I'll manage the details of the real estate sale process, freeing you to focus on other duties necessary for managing the estate's other assets and liabilities.

My father is a veteran of the both the U.S. Army and Navy, so to honor him and all those who have served, I am certified in the "Military on the Move®" Program which provides active military and veterans special benefits as a thank-you for their service.

Are you active military or a veteran? Ask me how you can get a cash rebate when you buy or sell a home!

Unfortunately, there are situations in which people just cannot afford to keep their homes, and a foreclosure or short sale results. I've earned the Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource certification (SFR) so I can help sellers maneuver the complexities of short sales and foreclosures, as well as help buyers pursue short sale and foreclosure opportunities.

My partnership with Baird & Warner, their brokerage firm, mortgage, title, and home warranty services, plus my relationships with real estate attorneys, home inspectors, and tradespeople ensures a seamless, easy real estate experience.

Don't you think real estate should be easier? As your full-service real estate broker, that is my goal! Call or text me TODAY for a FREE no-obligation consultation!

I make it EASIER! You make it HOME!
