Knowledge. Performance. Results.
Real estate is a relationship-driven, results-driven business, and I consider both to be top priority. My success is not only measured by sales numbers, but by the number of longstanding client relationships I have.
For over 17 years, Renee has distinguished herself as a consistent top producer in the north and northwest suburbs of Chicago, finishing in the top 1-3 % of sales associates annually and receiving numerous recognitions for achieving high annual sales volume.
Renee excels in representing buyers and sellers in any stage of life, from sellers who want seasoned, expert representation to get the highest price in the shortest time on the market, to first-time home buyers and those looking to upsize, downsize, or invest in their dream vacation home. With expert ability to serve any need, including foreclosures and short sales, she is respected for her honest, caring and candid approach, preparing clients for every step of the buying and selling process, and any unexpected detours along the way.
My recipe for success? Active listening, consistent communication, keen market knowledge, and results with the least stress and worry. These key ingredients are at the heart of every transaction for every client.
Having moved many times in her own life, Renee appreciates that it isn't always a client's first choice, particularly when it comes to relocation. She understands the value of having a REALTOR® who can provide not just market knowledge, but the support and resources to make a move as easy as possible for a family.
Renee transitioned to real estate after more than 20 years in sales and marketing, and trade publishing. She has enviable experience when it comes to innovative and effective marketing, and knows how to maximize multi-media exposure (including digital media) to her clients' benefit.
Renee lives and works in the Stevenson High School district, where her own children attended high school. Although she has an intimate understanding of that market and the nuances of the area, she has vast experience throughout the north and northwest suburbs. She has a BA from Florida State University and worked in Los Angeles and the New York metropolitan area, and south Florida for many years.
On a personal note, Renee's passionate commitment to help fight and end breast cancer began years ago when her immediate family members were affected by and even lost their battle with the disease. Her fundraising efforts have included participating for several years in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Renee's team, named the Lady Lifesavers, has proudly raised over $275,000 for the cause.
It takes more than desire to sell a home. It takes experience and expertise. Contact me when you won't settle for less than the best!
Clients are saying:
"We are very fortunate to work with Renee through our relo company. She is very responsive to our questions throughout the process, as we were thousands of miles away from North Chicago and we had to make the decision through one-weekend only visit. She is very good and articulate at facilitating our communications with the seller/builder. She provided lots of information and assistance before and during our house-hunting visit and before and at the closing. She is very professional, patient and nice."
"Renee is the consummate realty professional - from start to finish. She has a full armamentarium of top notch resources to help with purchase, upgrades, showing and selling of your home. Plus, she gets to know and cares for each client - she made a potentially stressful process run smoothly. Renee also follows up even after the sale is completed to make sure you have all you need. Because she did such a great job, I likely will not ever want to move from my new home - but if I need a realtor, she will be my go to every time. Thank you!"
"Renee was very conscientious, makes you feel like your home and the process is important to her, keeps the seller informed and is willing to go the extra mile bringing you apple cinnamon doughnuts if she feels you need them. She was encouraging and reassuring from the beginning to the end of the sale. Definitely a professional"
"I have 7 real estate transactions last 35 years. Renee is one of the best agents I have worked with. She is very responsive to all my requests and has what it takes to be the top agent."
"Renee was totally honest from the beginning with my concerns and brought me up to date on what I needed to do to be proactive in my search. She was always responsive and made a point to bring up things that I might not have considered with a rental. She made the whole process as simple as it could be. If she is this detailed about a rental property, and making sure I got what I needed, then I would absolutely use her when we are ready to buy something!"
