Relationships. For me, that's what everything comes down to.
In my work, relationships are everything. My clients come to me to help them make the biggest decisions in their lives. It's a privilege to have that trust, and one which I never squander. I listen to my clients, not just when they're talking about the sort of house they'd like, but about the way that they live their lives. I learn the little things about them, as they can make the biggest differences in finding the perfect home.
Relationships make all the difference.
Relationships with my peers are equally important. I believe wholeheartedly that ego has no place in a real estate transaction (or anywhere else, for that matter). I believe in cooperation. I approach other agents in a non-adversarial way, while standing up for the needs and rights of my clients, ensuring a smooth transaction for everyone, from offer submission to contract settlement.
Relationships are at the heart of all I am.
Born and raised in Evanston, I have a lifelong relationship with the City of Chicago. It's where I grew up, where I got married, and where I've raised my own family. I choose to work here because Chicago's diversity, excitement, and beauty feed my soul. I want the people with whom I work to develop their own relationships with it and to love it every bit as much as I do.
Relationships have honed my life and my career.
In my family, education has always played an important role. These values came with me when I matriculated at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Journalism and graduated at the top of my class. They came with me as I fostered my career over more than 30 years, earning my broker's license, relocation certification, and countless awards for exemplary service and mastery in sales.
Relationships are my future.
I wanted to work with @properties because their work ethic and mine make an excellent pairing. They value relationships with their customers, with their clients, and with their agents. We work in a high-energy, highly positive atmosphere in which we work together to find the best solutions for our customers.
Relationships. They make all the difference… in business, in life, in everything.
