Teri's area of expertise includes, but is not limited to, working with investors, selling apartment buildings and single family homes, and listing foreclosures. As a Realtor of 27+ years of experience, she understands the needs of clients and can obtain those needs in the form of the "perfect home". She devotes herself in being consciously aware of the area in which her clients desire to live. Her clients are not just buying a home; they are additionally buying the surrounding community. Therefore, Teri continually educates herself about school districts, park districts and train systems, etc.
Her natural ability. to know and understand what each community has to offer and linking it with the prospective buyer to it is what has led her to be in the top 3% of Realtors in Illinois.
A native Chicago resident, fluent in English and Polish, Teri attended the Art Institute of Chicago. She uses her eye for design just about every day; staging homes and remodeling are just two of the many value-added benefits she offers her clientele. A big believer in education, she holds REALTOR® GRI, ABR, CRS, CRE, SRS designations, and a managing broker’s license.
Passing her knowledge on to those how put their trust in her is a responsibility she takes to heart; making an informed and financially sound real estate decision takes hard work, something Teri welcomes. Clients often express how appreciative they are when she takes the time to walk them through a home, discuss the condition of the home, suggest cost conscious improvements, and evaluate its long-term investment scenario.
Proud to be working with a broad base of clientele… from investors to buyer and sellers of single/multi-family and distressed homes, Teri loves to stay busy. An average day will find her meeting with investors, handing over the keys to happy new homeowners or preparing a cost analysis for her latest rehab project.
Teri proudest moments come when she receives a thank you card from one of her client’s children sharing how much they love their new friends and school. She cherishes making a positive difference for families.
When you meet Teri, ask her about her husband of 40 years, Joe; he still makes her giggle. They have an adored son and daughter and one grandchild (who calls her Babcia). A world traveler, Teri and Joe take off on adventures as often as they can.
