A native Chicagoan, Stephanie joined @properties in 2012 after owning and operating Avid Solutions, LLC, a well-known Chicago based short sale negotiation company. For over 5 years, Stephanie and her team at Avid assisted over 800 families who were facing foreclosure with short selling their underwater homes. Since becoming a Real Estate Broker she has helped several buyers find their dream homes and sellers obtain the best price for their properties in an average market time of 15 days.
"I pride myself on my relationship building and making my clients feel like they are my top priority all the time. I am readily available and easily accessible to my clients and always try to exceed their expectations." Based on feedback given by her clients, she has been able to do just that.
Stephanie also specializes in working with investors in finding properties to buy, rehab and sell, or hold on to as investments. She has worked with several developers such on finding them great properties to rehab. She is then able to sell them, sometimes before they hit the market, for top dollar. She also advises her clients on current style and design trends and what will be most marketable in the neighborhoods that the properties are located. Because of her developer relationships, Stephanie has access to many Gut Rehab and New Construction pre market listings, which provide her buyers with a chance to put homes under contract before they list on the open market.
Stephanie has worked with clients to buy and sell homes all over Chicago and the suburbs including North Side neighborhoods of Albany Park, Horner Park, Irving Park, Lincoln Park, West Bucktown, Portage Park, Norwood Park, Belmont Cragin, Lincoln Square, and Dunning as well as Chicago suburbs including Streamwood, Barrington, Evanston, Schaumburg, Skokie, Mundelein, Palatine and Park Ridge.
Stephanie received her BSBA from the University of Dayton and worked in marketing and advertising prior to entering the Real Estate industry. She excels in market analysis and negotiations, especially due to her time in the trenches of the short sale world.

They helped us sell 2 houses and made closing on our new home hassle free. They were very knowledgeable, friendly, and truly cared about our family and needs. They are very easy to work with, has an extreme abundance of patience, and quick to respond when needed. They made selling our homes their main goal...We can't say enough good things about these DYNAMIC DUO Realtors, I will definently recommend them to family and friends!"
"Andre Property Group sold our home in 2018. They did an excellent job marketing our property prior to listing. We received multiple offers within 4 days of listing our home. They helped us sort through the offers and negotiate the final price and terms. We would use them again and recommend them to anyone looking."
"Stephanie and her team were amazing to work with. I was moving to Chicago from overseas and a friend recommended that I work with Stephanie. Wow, she went so way above and beyond for us, which was so helpful since I wasn't in Chicago to do this myself. She sent me property listings and was super responsive if ever I had a question or needed to make a change. She and her team visited locations for us and took photos and video specifically for me. She negotiated with our landlord on our behalf and found a great win-win situation. She even brought pizza over for my in-laws when they were moving furniture into the house before we arrived. Stephanie built a lot of trust with us through how she handled our situation and as a result, we hope to work with Stephanie and her team to help us find a house to purchase next year."
