Tina joined @properties in 2016 after spending a few years buying and managing rental properties. She fell in love with the excitement of the business and wanted to help others buy and sell real estate. She decided to move into real estate full time, but her professional background includes heavy marketing and administrative experience, which is extremely valuable in this industry. Her transition into real estate was seamless as she comes from a family of real estate investors. Tina and her husband own multiple properties and have personally gone through the buying process several times. She truly understands how emotional the process can be, so she works tirelessly to break down the steps, provide transparent communication, and make the experience fun & rewarding for everyone involved.
Tina has lived in several neighborhoods throughout the city of Chicago and covers majority of the Chicagoland area. She also holds a Wisconsin license and specializes in residential real estate in southern Wisconsin, with a specific interest in lake home properties.
Tina specializes in first-time buyers, resale & new construction. She completed the Real Estate Negotiation Expert (RENE) certification in 2016 and has proven to embody the skills and expertise that it takes to get the best deal possible when buying, selling or renting a home. Tina has also earned an MBA from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, which provided her a strong background in business to thoroughly understand and execute all aspects of a real estate deal. She is part of The Huyck Group, which has closed over $70 Million in sales over the past two years. The tight-knit team brings a wealth of knowledge from many aspects of the industry.
Clients are saying:
"We found our dream apartment thanks to Tina! I have used Tina as a realtor twice, and I would highly recommend her. She is extremely organized and prompt with answering emails and questions. We left questions on the MLS listings we were interested in; Tina would find out the information and leave us answers the same day. She took us out to see apartments 3 times, and she provided us with handouts with key information about each of the apartments we were seeing for comparison. When we were interested in a unit, Tina was in contact with the owner/realtor later the same day. Tina did a lot of extra work to hunt down an extra parking spot for us, even after we had moved into our new place. Tina is a wonderful person to work with, and she goes above and beyond to make sure the house hunting process is a smooth one."
"Tina is an absolute rockstar realtor. She did far and away more than we ever expected. While we combed through MLS listings we would write questions in the notes section and she would preemptively find out answers to those questions and reply back. She organized three different days of 7+ consecutive showings and even gave us a printout with a list of each property to take notes. She has done all the legwork on the closing side as well. We could not be happier with her service and the place we found. HIGHLY recommended!"
"We moved across the country with a second baby on the way, and Tina made house hunting from afar as seamless as possible in such a stressful situation. She was our eyes in the WI and IL areas when we were unable to travel to look at homes. She truly went above and beyond for us, even though our situation was atypical and somewhat complicated. We could not have found our new home without her help and her willingness to make us feel like her top priority the entire way through. She's honest, she's genuine, and she's smart. I highly recommend her to any and all buyers or sellers, no matter what situation you're in."
"Tina was wonderful to work with! She is extremely knowledgeable on the market, always willing to go the extra mile, and was so patient with us to make sure we found the perfect home! This was not my first home purchase and she was by far the best agent I have ever worked with! We could not have asked for a better experience! I would and will recommend Tina to anyone I know looking to find their perfect home! If i could give a 10 out of 5 i would! Thank you Tina!"
"I was in a very tight time crunch for finding a new apartment, and Tina went out of her way to accommodate last minute tours while ensuring the application process was expedited to meet my timeline. To top it off, she negotiated a great deal on the perfect place for me. Thanks, Tina!"
