My name is Liz Luby Chepell and I’m a writer and a Realtor in Barrington, Illinois. My mom, Suzanne Luby and I work with the Coldwell Banker office here in town and we call our crew The Luby Group. I live in Barrington with my husband, five-year-old daughter and two sons, ages three and two.
Before I became a Realtor I was a TV news reporter, anchor, writer and producer for ten years. I also worked as a radio DJ/Co-host of a Top-40 morning drive broadcast called “The Dawn Patrol with Johnny & Liz”. (best job ever) I have a degree in Journalism from the University of Illinois.
During my first job as a news reporter in Dubuque, IA, I once covered a story about the birth of a two-headed pig. If you were to watch that video, you would laugh AT me, not with me. That little pig had so many eyes, he walked in circles. But I picked him up and held him in my arms for that report, as a new reporter from the Chicago burbs going all-out to cover the ag beat in Iowa. I’ll post that video here someday, when I decide to share my bloopers. I have enough on-camera goof-ups to make a feature film ;).
I created this website because I have a passion for sharing stories about people, places and the stuff that shapes the community where I live. And, as Realtors, we also work with a lot of people who live in or are considering a move to Barrington. While one of my jobs is to sell houses, we also spend a lot of time answering questions about and promoting what goes on here in Barrington. I’m taking on this project to create a new and different local resource, while learning more about the community that we have in common.

I’ll add more info here at a later date. In the meantime, if you’d like to reach me or know someone who needs a good Realtor, I’m happy to be a resource and I’m always an email or a phone call away. You’ll find my digits and details below. Thanks for being here!
