As a founding partner of a top-producing mother-daughter real estate team, Annie Royster Lenzke has made an indelible mark on Chicago’s North Shore, primarily in Lake Forest and Lake Bluff. Now she brings a fresh dose of tenacity, discernment, and a client-focused, results-driven approach to the Dawn McKenna Group.
Annie’s passion for North Shore real estate is in her blood - her mother and partner, Jean Royster, is a recognized industry expert and highly respected real estate leader. As a lifelong resident, Annie’s perspective on North Shore living is rooted in her childhood and extends to raising her own three children in these beautiful communities. Annie has recorded more than a quarter billion dollars of closed transactions in only 12 years, and together with Jean, consistently ranks among Coldwell Banker’s top 1% of agents worldwide and the Top 10 Luxury Real Estate Brokers in Chicagoland, according to LuxeHome.
Recognized as a modern real estate professional with a competitive edge, Annie excels at providing a world-class real estate experience that combines strategic sales and marketing campaigns with digital technology - skills she honed while driving sales and brand strategy for blue-chip brands like Kellogg and Disney at the Leo Burnett Company. Whether first-time homebuyers or CEOs, Annie is truly honored to assist her clients with one of their largest life investments, and her clients value Annie’s unparalleled local expertise, strategic negotiating, and integrity. These qualities and experiences make Annie a perfect fit for the Dawn McKenna Group.
Annie is a proud resident of the North Shore and is highly involved in the community - serving on several school parent boards, fundraising for local animal shelters, and promoting charitable outreach initiatives. She donates a portion of each sale to support housing-related charities through the Coldwell Banker Charitable Foundation. Giving back is as much a part of Annie’s DNA as real estate.
