"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!*

"Josie was amazing to work with as we searched for our first home. She worked tirelessly to find the perfect house for us & answered our (many) questions. Would and do! recommend her to anyone!"

"Highly recommend Lynn and Jo for your real estate needs! They were extremely helpful in guiding us through the sale of our first house. Quick to answer any questions we had throughout the process. They kept us apprised of everything we needed to know and did a great job of easing any concerns we had. Go with them, you won’t regret it!"

  -Anthony T, Client

"I cannot say enough good things about Lynn. My mom recently passed away and I had to sell my childhood home. It was hard enough dealing with her passing but to add the home to it made it feel completely overwhelming. I approached Lynn & she handled literally everything. She explained every little detail to me and made herself available to me for any questions that came up. Within 4 days, she had 3 offers. She walked me through each one & explained the differences in each offer. I cannot say enough positive things about Lynn. If you are looking for someone to help you buy or sell a house, I guarantee you, you WILL NOT be disappointed!!!!!"

  -Janet Pearson, Client

"Lynn and Jo make a great team!!! I was looking to buy a house as I was also selling my current house and was on a time constraint to find “the one.” Lynn took me to see many houses before I found mine and she was incredibly patient and understanding through the whole process. Jo took me through the negotiation process and I got my dream house!! I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out and I owe it all to these two awesome women! Thank you both for everything!! To all those looking to buy or sell, you can’t go wrong with Lynn and Jo."
