CNE, ABR - Broker
Growing up in Communist Romania…I’ve learned at a very young age that “life is tough” and that I had to toughen up in order to achieve my dreams. I was involved in sports all my life starting with gymnastics, swimming and then in my High School years martial arts (forbidden sport during the communist regime). I went to collage and graduated with a degree in Tourism. During my collage years I discovered two more passions: modeling and Romanian traditional dancing. As a professional dancer I got to make my dream of traveling come true performing and competing at festivals in Europe and United States of America. After a three month tour in US I decided that US is where I would like to live my life, have a career and raise a family.
Where I’ve been…
I came back to Chicago in 1999 and been very active in the Romanian Community ever since as a professional folk dancer, TV host and Master of Ceremonies for non-profit organizations.
• Enjoy performing in the Romanian folk dance group, Miorita, as a way to keep our traditions alive and to pass them on to the next generations.
• Co-fonder and co-producer of a 1 hour Romanian Show aired on Channel 28, Chicago. I enjoyed working as a hostess but also covered major political events, festivals or concerts as a reporter. Working on live TV has helped her develop quick thinking, communication, leadership and speaking skills.
• Master of Ceremonies at numerous fund raiser events for Round Table Society, a non-profit organization who’s mission is to facilitate intercultural exchange, strengthen the Romanian-American community and create a sense of unity and belonging.
Where I am going…
My passion as a Realtor is helping my clients reach their goals, whether buying or selling, provide star service to every one of my customers and have them happy with the results of our collaboration. I am an excellent listener and a tenacious negotiator. In working with my clients I will not only handle all the technical aspects of their real estate purchase or sale but also I will look after their personal concerns. I am also an Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR), which means I specialize in working with buyers. In addition to English I am fluent in Romanian and I am proudly serving the Romanian Community in real estate transactions.
Clients are saying:
"Mihaela helped us find the ideal home for our family. She was patient, hard-working, knowledgeable, and listened very carefully to our likes and dislikes. To top it off, Mihaela was a superb negotiator. Her pleasant and capable demeanor made our home-buying experience relatively stress-free. We would work with her again without hesitation and will recommend her to our friends and family."
""In 2008 during a very bad real estate market for sellers Mihaela Presecan helped me sell my home in 3 months. She was very conscientious, knowledgeable and very pleasant to work with. She also helped me to find a condo that I love. I feel very fortunate to have sold my home with the help of Mihaela"."
""I bought my first property with Mihaela but I want to mention that for the second, third and so on she will be my real estate agent. She understood perfectly what I need, so we didnt waste our time looking for hundreds of houses. She answered in a professional manner all my questions and more than that she gave answers for questions I never imagine or spoke.""
""Being first time homebuyers was an exciting and stressful experience at the same time. Mihaela was there for me and my husband and she answered all our questions in a timely and professional manner. I will definitely work with her when we're going to upgrade from a condo to a house :-). Good luck to all home buyers out there!""
