During the past 12 years of selling real estate and helping clients make smart investments, I've seen an average of 600-700 properties per year in the North Side and North Shore communities. This gives me the perspective and market knowledge to know what buyers want, and what makes for a smart investment. Today's market is demanding and fast-moving. Accurate advice, up-to-the-minute market information and insight, and marketing muscle are critical to maximizing your real estate proceeds. With @properties' powerful market-within-the-market, I'm able to ensure my clients get the absolute best promotion and widest exposure to the most likely pool of buyers for their property. In the past two years, I've sold my listings 22% faster than the average market time, and for 4% more in Selling Price-to-Original List Price ratio than the market.

Listing Your Home or Investment Property
I provide a number of unique services to my clients, always keeping in mind the number one goal: Getting you the best terms and price that the market will bear, according to your specific goals. First, my consultation with you before listing your home is detailed, personalized, and informative. I believe it is essential that you understand your competition and therefore I provide you not only a CMA with detailed graphs but virtual showings of the comparable active homes on the market as well, so that you can be a savvy seller, aware of what you are up against and ready to stand a cut above. In addition to wide Internet and media exposure, I broadcast your listing via email promotion twice a month to over 3,500 agents so that your listing is never ‘out of sight, out of mind.’ My marketing materials as well as my level of service is of the highest quality and I look forward to working with you to sell your home.
Buying in Chicago
It is extremely rewarding helping clients build wealth through real estate. One of the first things you will receive from me is an up-to-the-minute analysis of whatever market you are exploring, ensuring you an informed decision. As an area native, and Chicago resident for over 20 years, I have lived in many of the most dynamic neighborhoods, from Wicker Park to Edgewater. As someone who loves where I live, I understand the importance of finding a property that is not only a great investment but a place you look forward to come home to. This will always be my goal for you. I also listen to what is important to you and whether you’re focused on school districts or street fairs--I look forward to helping you with your search.
Life in Chicago
With 10 years of experience in corporate software and technology sales, I started to get interested in real estate through my work as a volunteer docent for the Chicago Architecture Foundation, giving the world-famous River to Chicagoans and visitors. No longer a docent, I continue to share my love for this city and it’s neighborhoods through my real estate work.
