This married team has real estate in their blood! Respected International Sterling Society winners, both come from families in the real estate business which might explain why they love it so much! Both Justin and Aly were born and raised on the North Shore and met as lifeguards at Gillson Beach in Wilmette. Between the two of them, they have lived in Winnetka, Wilmette, Glencoe, Northfield and Glenview. This young and energetic couple combine their knowledge of the North Shore and passion for real estate to form the Tesar Group.
Justin Grew up in Winnetka and had the unique experience of watching his parents build and sell homes during his childhood. These childhood memories are what make him so passionate about real estate now. Before starting his real estate career Justin worked at the Chicago Board of trade for over 5 years. His financial background and high stress training allow him to handle any real estate transaction with ease.
Aly grew up in Wilmette and started going to open houses with her mom for fun as a child. No wonder she followed in her mothers footsteps and made real estate her career. Aly is a workaholic that loves every minute of her job! She prides herself on being a good listener and truly caring about each of her clients needs.

Justin started his education in Winnetka at Greeley Elementary School followed by Middle School at Washburne. Justin graduated from New Trier Township and made the short trip to the city of Chicago to attend DePaul University.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Highland Park, IL.
"We happened to put our home on the market during a very difficult period (around the holidays of '14). Aly and Justin worked tirelessly and we never got the sense that they were frustrated. Furthermore, they made us feel like we were their only client and were infinitely patient - answering every call, text, and email in a timely fashion. I've bought and sold many properties and I can honestly say that they are among the very best I've ever worked with and wouldn't hesitate to work with them again in the future".

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $825K in Evanston, IL.
"Aly & Justin were great from start to finish. We knew very little about the area and the knowledge they came with at our first meeting was 100% what we needed. They made us feel comfortable and brought expertise to the entire process. We would highly recommend using them!"

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.05M in Wilmette, IL.
"We worked with four realtors on the North Shore and NW suburbs in our search. She was/is *by far* the most responsive, and interested in finding a home that fit us, rather than just trying to shove us into whatever was in the pipeline. She went through detailed analysis of homes - looking at past tax records to understand the types of investments made into the homes she showed us. We ultimately found our home because she knew the area really well. She knew exactly why the location (walking distance from schools) and community (cozy, tight-knit neighborhood) would suit us, drove out to look at it herself - and explained the local history of the house (all of the above, not part of the seller's information). When we arrived, we knew it had exactly what we needed, and she helped us move quickly enough so that our kids started the school year in the new district, in our new house. We would highly recommend Aly for her knowledge, energy and keen interest in matching families to homes & communities".
