I might be slightly biased but I think Chicago is the most amazing city in the world! I was born and raised in Lombard and after graduating from the University of Illinois, I moved downtown to the “Big City”. I have lived in multiple Chicago neighborhoods from Lincoln Park to the up-and-coming Ukrainian Village. I am constantly surprised by the architecture and charm this City and the surrounding suburbs have to offer.
I made the switch into Real Estate in 2015 after leaving behind my job in corporate America. I served as an executive assistant for 5+ years at a major Chicago law firm that specialized in landlord/tenant law. Prior to that, I worked as an internal wholesaler for an investment company. Both of these jobs provided me with a skill set that I have applied towards a career that I love. I am organized, I am an expert negotiator, I have exceptional interpersonal communication skills and know how to relate with others. A real estate transaction can be an overly emotional time for some people, and I know how to provide a listening ear, offer guidance and ease tension.
A lot of people ask me how I spend my day? Well, no two days are the same in this industry! From scheduling showings, to attending training courses, reading over appraisal and inspection reports, exploring the various Chicago neighborhoods and suburbs, discussing market conditions with lenders, attending walk throughs, negotiating with other agents, communicating with attorneys, creating marketing strategies …I get to do it all! I feel blessed to work with some of the most wonderful clients, colleagues, and vendors. I truly love what I do.
When I’m not at the office, you can find me strolling around town with my husband Lee and my black labradoodle Harvey. I love to cook and I find relaxation in trying out a new recipe! I can also be found exploring the dynamic restaurant scene in my favorite, home sweet home, Chicago!
