Real Estate Brokers

"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 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?
  and many other neighborhood festivities over the years!

I am a member of the National Association of Realtors, Illinois Association of Realtors, Chicago Association of Realtors, and the Real Estate Buyers Agent Council. I was also a Girl Scout leader for many years.

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), granddaughter (Stella) 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!*

"My husband and I would highly recommend Lynn Bjorvik as a realtor . She is straight forward , knowledgeable, hard worker, friendly, and gets things done. We bought my dads house in River Grove and she helped us thru this process since we live in Texas it was hard flying back and forth . Lynn kept us in the loop with potential buyers and she explained the good and bad on what buers want in a house. Our house wasn't great inside it needed a major make over but I do like where we live...River Grove . Your near major roads, hospitals, schools, restaurants, and small business . Lynn made it happened where someone bought the house and we were very thrilled its also emotional I grew up in this house and long story short ........ Weand would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Lynn Bjorvik as your realtor ! Thank you Lynn ...YOUR THE BEST! !"

"Jo Ceglarek was wonderful to work with. She has a keen eye to detail and is very knowledgeable about the housing and real estate industry and markets. She also knows Chicagoland very well. Jo helped us find and close with the purchase of our first home. As new homeowners there were many things we weren't aware of. Jo brought many things to our attention while still allowing us to make decisions. Jo was incredibly prompt, when returning our calls or messages. She walked us through every step with patience and understanding. Jo was our cheerleader and couch through this process. I will 100% recommend Jo to anyone I know who is looking to buy or sell. I've also used Jo to find apartment rentals in the past. Each time has been perfect working with Jo. Jo was there via text for the closing due to new covid regulations she wasn't physically present, but we knew she was waiting by her phone. After closing we arrived to our new home with a nice welcome from our favorite relator. "

"My husband and I are first time home buyers and we can’t imagine going through this process with any other team! Lynn was professional and thoughtful through and through. She took time to educate us, make sure we felt comfortable with every decision, and was great company throughout the process. She is a quick mover and I can’t believe how fast we closed on our dream house! She has many reliable connections and set us up with a team that was also reliable and awesome to work with. We could not be more pleased with our experience! Lynn and her team are highly recommended by us! She took what could have been a very stressful and intimidating process and made it into a walk in the park. Thank you Lynn!"

"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!"
