I tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear

With 17 years and growing as an attentive and experienced REALTOR ® serving Chicagoland (Roselle, Bloomingdale. Itasca, Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates, Medinah, Elmhurst, Addison, Oak Brook, Elk Grove Village, Villa Park, Lombard, St Charles, Glen Ellyn, Bartlett, Carol Stream,Glendale Heights Streamwood, Hanover Park, and the West Loop and River North areas of Chicago) my goal is to always provideexpert market data, expert pricing, expert advice and timely responsesin order to make your home buying and selling process as educational and pain-free as possible 

Raised in Chicago's Western Suburbs, you can bet I know all about living and thriving in and around our exciting city. After graduating from Loyola University, I resided in the River North Neighborhood for over 16 yrs before moving back to Roselle. 

"I listen well and hear what you are really saying so I can help you achieve your home buying or selling goals...it’s time together that’s important. We are building a relationship and I don’t hesitate to spend the extra time to stay in touch."

For Buyers: I look at all the options in order to find the right fit in a home. I do the important leg work before we meet, research the inventory of homes in your desired area and stay abreast of the local buying conditions.

For Sellers: I help prepare your home for sale, determine a selling price, develop a 'market to sell' strategy, negotiate offers, and navigate the complexities of the escrow process.

Real Estate Analyst: My experience as a real estate analyst sets me apart from other REALTORS® and gives you an advantage due to my skill at calculating home values and future projections.

Accurate Pricing: When my listings sell, they have historically sold for 98% of the list price.

Whether it is selling a $50,000 condo or a $15 million dollar shopping center, I have sold it all and have seen it all! I am fortunate that I have knowledge of multiple Suburban and Chicago neighborhoods, their respective prices, and market trends. Not many agents out there that can tell you what properties are worth in several different neighborhoods, let alone key selling points of each neighborhood

One of the most rewarding aspects of being a REALTOR ® are all new friendships I have made with my clients. One of my proudest moments was closing a $15 million dollar shopping center for clients that took over a year and a half worth of work. 

When I am not seeing homes, preparing homes for sale, meeting with attorneys, or handing over the keys to satisfied clients, I take time to travel, spend time with my nephews and nieces, read, and exercise.

You can trust in me to exceed your expectations with care, compassion, and a serious drive to put your needs first and foremost. Let’s talk soon!
