Business Philosophy

Welcome to Monica O' Homes! Monica O'Byrne is a full-time, full-service Realtor/Broker with Coldwell Banker Residential Banker Brokerage in Schaumburg, Illinois. Her primary focus is delivering the highest level of customer service and satisfaction to all of her clients. She prides herself on taking the time to get to know them personally and listening carefully to their real estate needs and preferences. She will go above and beyond to help her clients with their real estate goals.

She is completely dedicated to her clients and will do what it takes to help them find the property that not only meets their needs, but one that they will love and be proud to call "home". For her, the relationship goes far beyond the sales transaction. Her goal is to build life-long relationships with her clients.

As part of one of the leading real-estate brokerages in the Chicagoland area, along with being a member of the successful Schaumburg sales team, Monica O'Byrne can offer you all of the tools and support you need whether you are buying, selling or renting properties. She will work hard to help you satisfy your real estate needs.

She was born in Winfield, has lived in Bloomingdale, Medinah and currently resides in Itasca, Illinois. (She has been an "Itascan" now for 25 years.) She has lived in Chicago's western suburbs most of her life and is therefore very familiar with the different areas and what unique qualities each has to offer.

Areas of Expertise

Monica O'Byrne brings specialized skills and areas of expertise from her years of experience in the sales of luxury building materials, construction, interior design and education.

She has had the opportunity to work closely with homeowners, builders, designers and architects in the processes of remodeling, redesign and new construction. In fact, she has been the G.C. on both of her family homes. This makes her quite knowledgeable regarding building practices, materials and local codes. As a result, she can bring tools and abilities to the table that not all realtors can do. Her father is an accomplished custom home builder and she grew up in a household where she was very involved in that demanding business. When she walks through a home, she does not just see the wall color and tasteful furnishings. She actually understands what has gone into the construction of the residence and has a keen eye for the details.

From her years as a teacher, she has learned to be patient and persistent with her clients. She knows how to educate them on all of the intricate nuances of the buying and selling process. She will never pressure the client to make choices. She will take the time to explain, research and guide them in a direction that works best for their unique situation. She works hard, is prepared, and always does her "homework".

Monica went above and beyond to sell our home. She really had our best interests at heart and cared for us like family. She was very attentive, thorough, and detail oriented. We could not say enough good things about Monica. She also sold my parents condo and did an exceptional job with them too. She is very knowledgeable and the most honest person you can work with. We highly recommend her. - Laura & Rich O. (Itasca, IL)


Monica proved to be the best choice we made in selling our home. From the very beginning she displayed professionalism and offered suggestions as to best present our house. Any questions or concerns either with the buyers agent or anyone else were responded to quickly. Great networking and results.  We would most definitely use her again or highly recommend to anyone in need of a realtor. - Jim & Marilyn H. (Glendale Heights, IL)

Monica was instrumental in easing the stress of selling our home. She was very professional in knowing exactly what needed to be accomplished to sell our home at top dollar. From staging our home to studying the comps in my area. Not only did our home sell quickly she got us over asking price. We  highly recommend Monica O'Byrne!! - Anna & Matt K. (Bensenville, IL)


After 5 months of very slow progress in getting my parents home ready for market I decided to call Monica to see if she could help. I thought it might be too early to call in a realtor but I’m so glad I did. Monica was wonderful!! She walked through the house with me, confirmed what needed to be  done and even took a few things off my long and daunting list. She got my siblings and I on a timeline, hooked us up with various professionals to help and made the process so much easier than I ever expected. Within 3 days of our home being on the market we had 4 offers, amazing!! I would hire Monica again in a heartbeat. Always smiling and upbeat, she is ready for any type of question and her answers are thoughtful and knowledgeable. If you want an easy moving experience, call Monica O’Byrne!! - Jenni S. (Arlington Heights, IL)
