"Helping You Make Your Best Decisions"
Hello and thank you for visiting! My career selling homes began in 2005, right before market values began to decline. Those years gave me the opportunity to sharpen my skills in all aspects of home sales, traditional, relocation, foreclosure, short sales, land sales, auctions and property leasing within Lake, McHenry and northern Cook Counties.
Prior to Real Estate, I managed a growing and successful electrical contracting company. Through the years, I've come to know the benefits of "following rules" especially the Golden Rule.
My clients will confirm that I'm just a phone call away. Texting and emails have their place, yet conversations assure important information is accurately communicated. In my business practice, Buyers and Sellers are the final decision makers who hire me to be their trusted confidante, advisor and negotiator. I consider myself successful when clients realize my top priority is them.
Brought up in a military family, home base was Chicagoland. In 1987 I moved to Grayslake purchasing my family home of 31 years. In 2017, I began preparations for its' sale. Putting into practice my "Seller Suggestions" and "Buyer Guidelines" I sold my property in a single day downsizing to my new home in Vernon Hills.
Moving is a huge undertaking and I suggest bringing a REALTOR® with you! It begins with a phone call and I'd be honored if that call is to me.
It's never too early to discuss the process of buying and selling even if you don't move for years to come. How do you know what it is you don't know unless you ask?

Clients are saying:
"She is a great person to work with. She is well prepared and very professional."
"I've bought and sold 8 different properties and the last two were with Kathy as our realtor. These were the best and it's all because of her.. She handles every detail and leaves nothing to chance. If I were to do this again there's no question that I'll be calling her."
"Kathy did an outstanding job marketing our lake house. The listing presentation generated lots of interest, resulting in many showings and multiple offers. After the house was under contract Kathy followed through on all of the details needed to complete the sale. She effectively represented us in the negotiations. We listed the house with Kathy because we had such a positive experience when she helped us purchase our house 8 years ago."
"Both my wife and I are comfortable in working with Kathy. She is very resourceful, passionate and professional. We love her and trust her 100% as she would provide unbiased assessment of a property."
"We were first time homebuyers and had zero knowledge of the entire process. Kathy helped us understand all the moving parts required to purchase a home, and the good and not so good areas to look. She was always available to answer questions, returning our calls or emails normally within minutes. By the end of the process we felt like she was a member of my family. We never felt rushed or pressured into anything. We have the house we wanted because of Kathy and plan on using her for all our future home purchases/sales."
