Realtor since 2003 - Born and raised in the CHicago-land area, I have been living and working in Chicago proper for over 20 years. I have been named one of the Top Producing Agents in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014 by the Association of Chicago Realtors. I represent clients in the Northern, Western and Southwestern suburbs as well as the City. In my free time I purchase, rehab and manage clean, safe, affordable housing.
During the Economic down turn, I represented most of the major banks listing their foreclosure inventory. I was contracted to analyze the market, determine values and trends, preserve and market their properties. My background has provided me with hands on real time knowledge of the market data. This experience has allowed my Buyers to negotiate aggressively and buy successfully at the bottom of the market. Conversely, my Sellers have gained maximum exposure for their listings through my active Buyers Network Database. A network composed of actively looking everyday buyers, developers, rehabbers and hedge funds.
My skill set in Marketing and Design from Indiana University, and The Art Institute of Chicago, has greatly helped me to personally gut rehab my own multi-unit properties. My personal experience in buying, selling and rehabbing is a great asset to both sides of the transaction as it provides a clear vision for add-value renovations in all areas of the home purchase/sale process. As well as a great understanding of how streesful the selling process is from opening your home to prospective buyers to negitiating the best possible price.
I look forward to working with you!

"Sandra has been great! She has been very helpful and always steers me in the right direction. It's hard to find good realtors like her, highly recommend her!"
"Sandra was great to work with. She was knowledgable with the market and helped me understand different opportunities with different properties. For example, one property I considered would have required a decent amount of renovations; Sandra had great suggestions and was able to provide cost estimates for the projects. She was also well networked and provided me numerous contacts for home inspection and lending. Greatly appreciated going through this process with Sandra!"

"I'm a general contractor that specializes in renovations for foreclosures and REO's. Sandra's excellent knowledge of the city's neighborhoods and what's a good buy, the surround comp's and the construction costs are hard to come by in a Realtor.
