Buying or selling a home is one of the most exciting, exhilarating, stressful and important things you'll ever do. You can trust that I will listen to your wants and needs, work continually to check all your boxes, help you navigate what can be a complicated process, and advocate for you every step of the way.
My client-centered approach and genuine care for my buyers and sellers is what sets me apart in the industry. I take on the needs and desires of my clients as if they were my own and work tirelessly on their behalf. I take tremendous pride in my work and am not in the business to simply "close deals." I actively listen to my clients and act as a trusted adviser, skilled negotiator, and valuable community resource.
Whether you're a first time home-buyer, expanding your family, considering downsizing, or investing, I look forward to bringing my enthusiasm and expertise to help you fulfill your goals.
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 in Bloomington with a degree in fine arts and art history, I began my career in fundraising and marketing, working with several Chicago-based non-profit organizations, including 10 years at the University of Chicago. It's this experience as a superb listener and communicator, along with my understanding and knowledge of market trends, which now helps me create new opportunities for my clients in an ever-changing real estate market.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with friends, traveling, being outdoors, reading, running, and spending time with my husband, our three kids, and two dogs. I am heavily involved in my childrens' schools, serving as a founding member of the Friends of Palmer Elementary School, and active in my neighborhood association on the northwest side of Chicago. I also love good food, wine, music, entertaining, and exploring new places!
Clients are saying:
"When we asked Alex to sell our home, she stepped up to the plate and used her network and intimate knowledge of the market to knock it out of the park.
Even when the process threw us curveball after curveball, Alex never swung and missed - she worked the count until we had an offer in our zone.
Alex is an All-Star and I would recommend her to lead-off your home search or bat cleanup on your home sale."
"Alex understood exactly what we were looking for and was able to help us close on the perfect home for us in the neighborhood we wanted, in a very tough market. She was great to work with, honest and insightful. We would definitely recommend her!"
"My wife and I loved our experience with Alex! She was so very responsive, and even supportive, as we went through the ups and downs of our first homebuying experience. Alex was adaptable to today's competitive seller's market. She got us into two houses as the first showing, one of which we now call home. She was a great negotiator and advocate for us in a transaction that was not at all straightforward. We enjoyed Alex's personality and appreciated her work every step of the way."
"Despite having several friends in the real estate business, we opted to find someone who would come along for this buying journey with us. From our first conversation, she made us feel comfortable and at ease with the whole process. I've bought and sold a few homes, but my partner was new to the process and she made sure he had all his questions answered along the way. The biggest issue - we were in California and looking to buy in Chicago! Alex spent hours finding options, going to open houses, taking pictures and videos. We could not have found the perfect home without her help! Thanks, Alex!"
"My husband and I can't speak highly enough about Alex. She came highly recommended by friends, and from the moment we met her, we felt comfortable and at ease. Alex answered all of our questions, was super responsive, and never pressured us one way or another in the decision making. We felt that she kept our best interest at heart. Thanks so much Alex!"
