About Sheilah O'Shea

Investor in Chicago & surrounding areas for the past 10 years. I choose places that I personally stay and enjoy with family and friend's!

Sheilah O'Shea purchased this house in 2014

Why Sheilah O'Shea chose New Buffalo

I always wanted a getaway from the city in a quaint beach town that I could walk everywhere and enjoy the beach life...and this is my little gem.

What makes this house unique

I covet the open floor plan so everyone can be part of everything no matter if you are prepping dinner, playing board games at the dining room table or relaxing in the family room. Backyard has ample space for socializing and activities for all ages.
