Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, I've called Chicago home for close to 20 years. I love its beauty, diversity, neighborhoods, and most importantly, it's people!
After graduating from Indiana University-Bloomington with a degree in fine arts and art history, I began my career in fundraising and marketing for several Chicago-based non-profit organizations. It's this experience as a superb listener and communicator, along with my understanding and knowledge of market trends, which helps me create new opportunities for my clients in an ever-changing real estate market.
Buying or selling a home is one of the most exciting, exhilarating, stressful and important things you will ever do. You can trust that I will listen to your wants and needs, work continually as we find the perfect property, help you navigate a complicated process, and advocate for you every step of the way. Whether you are a first time homebuyer, expanding your family, or considering downsizing, I look forward to bringing my knowledge enthusiasm and expertise to help you reach your goals. Whatever your real estate need, I'm ready to assist you through every step of the real estate process - from negotiation final prices to handling legal issues and paperwork.
I live in the North Mayfair neighborhood on the northwest side of Chicago with my husband, three children and two pitties. In my spare time I am busy serving as President of my neighborhood school PTO, running (completed my first marathon in Oct 2018!), yoga, cooking, spending time with family and friends, and taking in all Chicago has to offer!
Clients are saying:
"Alex helped us buy our first home, and we couldn't have asked for a better person to work with! She is extremely knowledgeable and is able to explain every single step of the process in a way that is easy to understand and not overwhelming. Her response time is lightning-fast, which was a huge help for us landing our starter home in a hot neighborhood. We felt more than comfortable deferring to her expertise on a number of issues. She also provided referrals for our mortgage lender and home inspector, both of whom were fantastic! Beyond her skills as a realtor, she is just a great person. She is thoughtful and funny, and never made us feel silly or uncomfortable for asking questions or expressing our opinions. I could go on and on about how great it was to work with Alex. We are extremely grateful, and would recommend her to anyone!"
"Alex was a great ambassador as my agent in selling my home in Hyde Park From our first meeting and pricing discussions through the closing process, her guidance and feedback was incredibly helpful. I was fortunate that my house got multiple offers in less than a week on the market. I would urge sellers to listen to Alex’s advice and use her recommended partners. I can’t thank Alex enough for how smoothly and quickly everything went from beginning to end!"
"Alex is my hero. She helped me through the entire process, answering all my questions or pointing me to the right places for answers. She was my champion, listened to everything I wanted, and helped me find my first home. 10/10 would hire her again."
"We were not having any luck finding a renter for our 4 bed/2 bath unit and were quite concerned heading into the winter season so we asked Alex to take over our listing. She immediately pulled up comps and expected market times for similar listings in our neighborhood giving us a true understanding of price point and market lead time. She kept our expectations realistic but competitive at the same time. She hosted numerous showings and one mini open-house which yielded us a couple applications to choose from. We are glad to say she was able to find us a great tenant in the most difficult of times (and quicker than the average market wait time!). Alex always kept us posted with activity, was upbeat and professional, and maintained a positive outlook. She guided us each step of the way and answered any questions we had very promptly. I would highly recommend Alex to guide you through a time that would otherwise be very stressful, whether it be renting, buying, or selling a property. Thank you Alex!"
"Alex was great to work with. Selling a home that you've lived in for 23 years is not a process I want to ever repeat. Alex was professional, organized and kept me on task. She made a horrendous process bearable. Thanks Alex!"
