The Capitanini Team consistently ranks as the Number One Residential Team for Coldwell Banker, the Number One Residential Team on the entire North Shore, is among the top five percent of Coldwell Banker nationally, and is among the Wall Street Journal's prestigious "The Thousand" real estate professionals. 

Diverse talents and strengths working in concert with each other to best serve our clients.

Frank Capitanini's strong work ethic, attention to detail, and ability to provide seamless, unsurpassed client service are key reasons for his continued success and strong client relationships. He has been in customer service for more than 35 years and is the deal maker for the Capitanini Team. He is known within the industry for his strong negotiation skills, on-point pricing and keen market knowledge. Prior to selling real estate, Frank spent more than 25 years managing his family-owned and operated restaurant and long-time local Chicago favorite, the 91-year-old The Italian Village Restaurant at 71 W Monroe in Chicago. A 25 year native of Wilmette, Frank is married to Trish Capitanini, has five grown children, two sons-in-law, and three grandchildren. He is also a master chef and avid tennis player.

Trish Capitanini, a lifelong resident of Wilmette, possesses a commitment to excellent customer service that sets her apart from all others. She works with buyers, sellers and builders, paying special attention to every client's short-term and long-term goals. It's not a formula. Every client is individual and Trish specializes in identifying a plan that works best for them and their families.

For sellers, Trish works diligently to ensure the home is presented in its best possible light, including prioritizing and improvements that need to be made in the most cost-effective manner, as well as coordinating and facilitating staging to get the home show ready.

For buyers, Trish and the licensed brokers of the Capitanini Team are dedicated to responding in a timely manner to requests and showings. Her market knowledge of the North Shore and New Trier District is unmatched, allowing for a very specific understanding of the long-term benefits for her buyers.

Trish also works with buiders, assisting them with new construction design and marketing with the goal of creating a dream home that fits today's buyers' needs and wants.

We are committed to being nothing short of exceptional.

In additional to Frank and Trish, our Capitanini support team offers three experienced, focused and responsive brokers  - Ryann Capitanini, DiAnn Hillesland and Michael Manganaro - available to us 7 days a week with expertise in marketing, market research, technology, market planning and pro-active services. Along with Ellen Eberle (Marketing Director) and Julie Tonner (Administrative Assistant), our team designs and implements individualized concierge services to assist our buyers and sellers in a unique and memorable way.

"Selling a family home and downsizing as empty-nesters is one of the most stressful, emotional and exhausting life experiences. Unless of course you have Trish and Frank Capitanini (and their incredible team) on your side to support you through the ENTIRE process. From the moment we decided to sell our home of 14 years, they went into action by taking all the details off our plate.

From Trish’s expertise in prepping our home to helping us move the last boxes, there was not a stone unturned. In addition, they priced the home well and put us under contract quickly. Trish helped to create the most stunning marketing pieces, planned an incredible home-furnishing sale (invite and pamphlet included) and provided us with contacts for everything we needed including the most amazing moving company. Frank guided us through the closing process seamlessly. They are much more than realtors, they are full service home concierges and the only partner you will need once you make the decision to sell."
