"love where you LIVE"
As native Chicagoan and City resident for 36 years, I resided in many City neighborhoods including Beverly, Mt. Greenwood, the Loop, South Loop, Jefferson Park, Edgewater, and Old Irving. Growing up in Chicago, I attended Mother McAuley High School and worked for various City agencies including the Board of Education, Chicago Fire and Police Departments. This experience has provided me with an extensive knowledge of the City's unique neighborhoods.
In 1989, I relocated with my husband and daughters to the Western Suburbs, primarily to send them to Benet Academy in Lisle, my husband's Alma Mater.
With over 185 closed transactions and 90+ million in sales, I have the experience and expertise to assist with all your real estate needs. Primarily serving Naperville, DuPage County and the Western Suburbs since 2002, my knowledge of the area is extensive. In addition, I have been assiting buyers and sellers more and more in the City.
When listing a home, my full service internet marketing plan gives a homeowner the opportunity to get the maximum exposure and price for their property.
For buyers, I help negotiate the best possible deal and search until I find the perfect property and location. Nothing satisfies me more than seeing the smiles resulting from a successful sale or the
purchase of a lifetime.
A background and education in HR Management has been key when working with diverse buyers and sellers. I am a Certified Residential Specialist, a designation earned by only 4% of all residential agents nationwide and we sell 28% of all residential property. Requirements include coursework and productivity. Seriously, why would you work with an agent without the CRS designation?
ABR...Accredited Buyer's Representative...yep, have that too! The ePro designation I hold demonstrates a high level of "tech savviness." Certified Negotiation Specialist (CNS)...got it!
Need help prepping your home? I am an Accredited Staging Professional.
In addition, being certified as a Relocation Specialist has afforded me the opportunity to introduce "my Chicago" to those new to the area. I derive a great deal of satisfaction knowing that these folks are getting the data they need to make an informed decision on what location is best for their families. Relocating is stressful - let me make it easy for you! If you, a friend or family member are relocating, I can refer you to the perfect agent around the corner or around the world.
These are skills I bring to the table for my buyers and sellers and you can rest easy that you are in good hands. I have worked hard to ensure that my clients have the best real estate advocate
in their corner. I am not on a "team." When you hire me...you get me. After all, why work with an Assistant Coach when you can work with a Head Coach!
I have been enjoying the wonders of real estate for over 16 years. My business is based on knowledge, trust and exceptional concierge level service.
Bring experience and knowledge to your next move and make it your best move!

"Another great job by Ms. Kula. Responded quickly and effectively to demands by potential buyers."
"Rita was awesome, for selling our house, showing us new properties and closing on our new home. We can't thank Rita enough!!!"
"Rita was an absolute pleasure to work with and a consummate professional. Rita led the charge by suggesting a more modern staging of our home, emphasized the digital impression of the property and attended to every detail of the showings and closing. So awesome service and we highly recommend Rita as agent, coach and counselor for any real estate transaction."
"My husband and I were looking to purchase our first single family home in the northern suburbs. Rita was patient, knowledgeable, and quick with responses to all of our questions. Rita not only made the process smooth for us but she also gave us advice on neighborhoods, pros and cons of different properties, and things to look for since we were first time buyers. Rita was beyond wonderful and I look forward to working with her again in our future!"
