Shawnah Donley

About Shawnah

Growing up in Chicago’s North West suburbs, Shawnah’s love of sales began at the young age of seven buying and selling antiques and architecture with her father. She continued these practices by co-founding an antique auction company, Donley Auction Services, where she created the company’s first Real Estate Division. High standards and unwavering commitment are a lifelong trait found in the Donley family. 

Shawnah is continuously sought out for her advice and trusted judgment on million dollar deals. As a permanent fixture in the antique collectors’ circles, she has a unique ability to market and successfully sell an ever-rotating inventory of truly one-of-a-kind homes. This has provided not only a strong foundation to her real estate career but a loyal clientele and referral business.

Communication is the key to Shawnah’s success. Giving each of her clients personal attention tailored to their needs, she creates a strong rapport, providing guidance in the sometimes turbulent world of real estate. She epitomizes integrity, hard work and creative service in every detail of your real estate transaction.

As a Chicago resident since 2009, Shawnah is an enthusiastic member of the community volunteering as an Ambassador of the Richard H. Driehaus Museum and with the Sunshine Kids Foundation. When she's not helping buyers find their perfect homes, Shawnah, an active stunt actress and member of the Screen Actors Guild, can be seen on the small screen in hit shows such as Chicago Fire, PD, and Med.

“[In a home] You’re making an investment in what could be the most important asset you’ll ever have. The right moment is when you know where you’re going to live for a while, when you find the home that fits your family, and when it’s at level that fits in with your income and ability to make a down payment and then I would get a very long mortgage… 30-year mortgage and the rate will be fabulous, and there is no sense waiting if those conditions exist."
