The professional you want – The experience you need

With 28 years of experience in the real estate market of Illinois, I serve the NW and surrounding suburbs of Chicago. Born in Arlington Heights and having lived here all my life, I am an expert on our local real estate market.

Over the years, I have built relationships with buyers and sellers, whether they are commercial, residential, or investors. I have also assisted many international buyers. First time homebuyers, and those relocating, can rely on my experience to help them select the best area, and then home, according to their specific criteria. By working diligently to determine their needs and wants, we increase the likelihood of finding just the right home; many of my clients have found their perfect home on our first day of showings!

My understanding of national trends and the local market, and access to a large database, allows me to sell luxury, golf estate, lakeside and condominium properties as well.

My early experience in administration required excellent organization skills; I use these to easily guide each client through the stages of the buying or selling process. The owner of a clothing store for four years, I have a keen eye for color and design; this comes is very handy when staging a home or visualizing a home’s potential.

Years of walking through properties in need of a renovation, or under construction, has given me the opportunity to learn a lot about and new builds and home rehabilitation. Very willing to share this knowledge with clients, I welcome questions and offer my insight willingly. I believe that new homebuyers should not shy away from a home needing a bit of work. I assist those with no previous experience on how to acquire the best mortgage for their situation.

Timing and experience are essential in today’s challenging real estate market. I provide every client with the finest service and attention.

There are always questions in real estate. Let me listen to your needs, attentively counsel, and be there for you, 24/7.

Together we will make the very best home buying or selling decisions for you and your family!
