The Key To Your New Home

I know our local markets well and appreciate everything our exciting city and surrounding suburbs have to offer; Chicago has been my home for the majority of my life. I attentively serve the needs of home buyers and sellers in Chicago’s Northwest Suburbs, including Des Plaines, Huntley, Richmond, Johnsburg, Lake Villa, Round Lake, Spring Grove, Fox Lake, and surrounding areas.

Let me put my 10 years of real estate development, tenant management, and working with General Contractors to work for you. My varied background allows me to note quality construction, see faulty work, assist with repair or rehab cost estimations, and more. My husband owns a remodeling company; so if finding a fixer-upper, or making improvements to a home you buy or sell is something you desire, no worries! With extensive construction knowledge, access to quality pros, and no rush/weekend fees, you'll love the added value this relationship offers you.

Are you a single parent, and/or a first-time homebuyer? I specialize in helping you find the right home for the right terms. With mortgage knowledge and a personal understanding of the possible hurdles you may face, you can count on me to be a trusted advocate that puts your needs first and foremost. I explain all things clearly and have the patience required to help you navigate the often bumpy road to owning your new home.

Are you a home seller? I listen to your needs, help set an ideal price, and prepare your home for sale. My refined selling strategy includes aggressive marketing, negotiating for you, and guiding you through the complexities of the closing process.

Personally, I love my 'Brady Bunch', blended family of one awesome husband, 3 girls, 3 boys, 2 dogs, and a cat. We are just missing our 'Alice', LOL. Travel, music, relaxing by the pool, and yard work occupies my free time. Coaching softball is a past love of mine. As a resident of Prairie View Estates in Johnsburg, I stay abreast of the area schools, amenities, and housing options to best serve my clients' needs. 

I'm quick to respond to calls/emails/texts and make myself readily accessible.  If you are looking for a conscientious real estate pro that will proactively work for your best interests, maintain great communication, and be there for you from your first call to the closing table, and beyond... let’s talk today!
