With 17 years of experience as both a residential and commericial real estate broker I am a dedicated urban explorer and your one stop for real estate needs! Neighborhoods and their homes, buildings, modes of transportation and people are what interest me most. I'd like to be your connector!
I've specialized in Single Family homes, rehab projects including Condo development and Residential apartment buildings. A unique way to invest and build equity is with the purchase of 2-4 units. They are also a great way for 1st time buyers to purchase an affordable home. I've been a licensed General Contractor in Illinois and so bring a degree of expertise to your fixer-upper purchase.
In addition, I bring a back ground in visual design, with a MFA from the School of the Art Institute (SAIC) to your next project.

Clients are saying:
"I spoke with Colette over the phone about a listing she was representing, from then on she made my first time home buying experience and search very comfortable and smooth!"
"Working with Colette was a great experience. She has an easy style, treated me with respect, and she knows the city of Chicago well. She is intuitive and helped me find the perfect place within three weeks of the start of my search. She answered my questions frankly and honestly, and I felt confident in her guidance through a fairly complicated real estate environment. I enthusiastically recommend Colette to help you through your home search."
"Colette was absolutely perfect. From our first conversation to closing, she was professional, knowledgeable of both my market and the business in general, but most of all she listened. I always felt that she put my needs and wants first. My time was valued and she did not waste one minute of it. From start to finish she worked to make the process as easy as possible, dare I say even fun."
"It was a privilege to work with Colette. She is knowledgeable and helpful in every way. I was so overwhelmed with the task of looking for a new place to live, I gladly trusted Colette to help me find the best place and to negotiate the best deal. It was a load off my mind to let her handle it for me and to know I was in the best hands possible. I am so pleased with my new home and I owe it all to her."
"Colette was super patient and always there to help. She got us exactly the place we were looking for."
