About Me

As a real estate agent I strive to provide outstanding service to my clients. I draw on 16 years as a Realtor and 8 years as a Real Estate Appraiser to guide you through the process of buying or selling a home. My goal is to deliver outstanding service and guaranteed results!

I listen to the needs of my clients and find the homes that meet their criteria whether they are buying their 1st home, upgrading or downsizing or buying an investment property. I have formed strategic alliances with inspection companies, contractors, title companies and lenders to assist with making this a good experience for all of my clients. I do reverse marketing for buyers to help them find homes that haven't even hit the market so they can get there first and get priority access to homes.

I have an extensive marketing plan that I implement to help sellers get their home sold quickly with the least amount of hassle for the most amount of money. Given my appraisal background, I give sellers an assessment of the market conditions and the value of their home which enables them to price their home at a price that causes it to sell. If you want top dollar for your home I have the systems and strategies in place to make sure you net the most money in your pocket at closing.

It's important for sellers to allow access to your home to accommodate buyers. More exposure equals more offers. When you receive multiple offers you'll have more say in the terms and conditions of the sale. Multiple offers increase the price and results in more money for the seller.

A prepared seller helps to make the selling process smoother. Sellers should remove all the clutter and have the home in buyer friendly condition. It's also a good idea to have your loan information and deed ready for the title company once a contract is accepted. Communication with all parties helps create a smooth selling experience.

Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, you deserve superior service. I have the experience and knowledge to guide you through the process so that you realize your goals in a manner that best serves your family's needs. Let me help make your move seamless and successful! Give me a call at 847-804-3828.

Beth has an excellent grasp of the market and how to price a property correctly. She brings a wealth of experience to the table and instills trust in her clients easily with her professionalism and track record. She handled my sale perfectly, getting me a buyer in the first 24 hours and guiding me through the whole process without being condescending at any time. Thank you so much, Beth. I hope I never have to move again, but if I do you will be my go to person.

Beth was a tremendous help in getting my townhome sold in Vernon Hills. Within a week of her seeing the property, she notified me that I already had a few potential buyers. By the time I was ready to sell the home, it was hardly one day before I had an offer I was happy to accept. Beth took the lead on facilitating the transaction and made sure the process was easy for both me and the buyer. I recommend her to anyone who's ready to make the sale of their home fast and easy.

Helped me buy and sell homes

We can’t thank Beth enough for helping us find our first home, now selling it, and then helping us purchase our forever home. For the past 9 years she has treated us like family and always stayed in contact, never missing a birthday or anniversary. When it came time this year to selling/purchasing our home, Beth was so attentive to our needs, knowledgeable, and helped ease any fears with have about the process. We were able to get our house under contract before even going to MLS and well above our asking! Finding a home was easier with Beth as she was able to use her expertise to get us into the perfect fit. Everything went so much easier because of her! Thank you so much for everything!

I could not have been happier with the service and responsiveness I received from Beth. Having never sold a house before, she was extremely helpful in navigating and explaining me through the process. Her negotiation skills, advice and instincts were all spot on as I got the price that I was hoping for. Very personable and professional. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.

After a long time on the market and few showings, Beth helped me get my house sold quickly. She setup an open house for me and soon had 4 offers on my house! I highly recommend her services. She made selling my house simpler and much more pleasant.
