"We're Working Together, For You"

Meet Lynn Bjorvik
As a dedicated real estate professional since 2004, my goal is to always provide my clients with a full service, anxiety-free real estate experience from beginning to end. My exceptional level of service and professionalism, combined with my ability to listen to and understand the desires of my clients helps me to provide outstanding service and build long lasting relationships.

Over the last 15 years, I have gained tons of experience working with clients in various situations. During that time, I have also become certified as a Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource Specialist (SFR) and also a Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) which provides me with the additional education and knowledge to help Seniors who may have particular concerns during the selling and moving process. I am also a CARTUS Network Certified Agent (CNCA) serving as part of the Corporate Relocation Team with Coldwell Banker.

In addition to being a full-time real estate professional, I have served on the Board of Trustees in the Village of River Grove since 2002. In 2016 I was appointed as “interim” Village President until the current Village President was elected in 2017. I also serve on the Board of Directors for the Grand Corridor Chamber of Commerce.

I am a member of the National Association of Realtors, Chicago Association of Realtors and the Buffini and Company “Work by Referral” Program.

Being a leader and active member in my community has always been important to me. I have volunteered as a baseball and softball coach, I was a Girl Scout leader for several years and I am currently a member of the River Grove Lions Club

When I am not working, I keep busy working-out, bike riding and doing anything I can outdoors and spending time with my husband John (Bucky) and my son Kevin and daughter Kelly.


Meet Josephine, (Jo) Ceglarek
Since entering the real estate business in 2006 I have gained, and maintained, many personal and professional relationships throughout Chicago and Illinois suburbs.  I work hard to stay on top of industry trends and education, as well as incorporating technology into daily business use. Along my real estate journey I have earned the designation of an Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR®), by way of additional training, to be a top choice REALTOR® for buyers, and sellers.

As a proud Chicagoan I support neighborhood communities by staying active in block clubs, and as a leader of a local Girl Scouts troop since 2015.  I also volunteer through the Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago & Northwest Indiana as a service unit manager to Girl Scout leaders in the neighborhoods of Jefferson Park, Dunning, Irving Park, and Portage Park, and have held a presence - through Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage - McMullen Office - at local festivals & parades. Maybe you saw me last year with the miniature houses in the Northwest Side Irish Parade? Or at the Edison Park Fest in the past?

I am a member of the National Association of Realtors, Illinois Association of Realtors, Chicago Association of Realtors, Northwest Chapter of the Women's Council of Realtors, and the Real Estate Buyers Agent Council. 

Though Real Estate is my full time priority, when I am not busy I love spending time with my family, my husband (Jeff), son (Jacob), daughters (Kaitlyn & Samantha), and my friends, while supporting local small businesses, attending theater productions, eating Thai or Sushi, or playing games. *Ask me about my audition for Familly Feud!*

"I would highly recommend The J & L Team! They helped my mother sell her home of 43 years, (which was an emotional process) and downsize to a condominium. Lynn was patient, caring, hard working and very knowledgeable. She really went the extra mile to answer questions and communicate with us every step of the way. From the first day we met with her, she made us feel very comfortable. Even after the closings, she still checked in to make sure everything was going well. We truly loved working with her! The J & L Team will always be our choice for any future real estate needs and we would recommend them to anyone. "

"Lynn provided exceptional service in the recent sale of our family home. She is extremely knowledgeable and educated in current market conditions, and how they will influence and impact both buyers and sellers. Lynn has a unique ability to balance the emotional and business components that are always present in a residential real estate transaction. This balance was very important to us and we could not have found a more qualified, friendly and professional agent, to help us with the details and decisions. I highly recommend Lynn and her team."

  -Jan Kuzniar, Client

"Lynn made us feel like family! She and Jo made this process so easy and explained everything to us making our first time selling a home a smooth process. I appreciated their expert options and quick responses whenever we had questions. I would 100% recommend this team!"

  -Jessica and Anthony , Client

"Lynn always gives a 110%. I wouldn't think of calling anyone else to handle my real estate needs. She is thorough, fair and precise. You're goal is her goal. Once a client always a friend!"
