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:
"Working with Alex was a wonderful experience! We were relocating from Chicago to Southern California and she helped us sell our house. She helped us with recommendations on how to get the house ready, providing a timeline for all the items, contractors to help us make some repairs, and following up on how we were doing all along on each to do item.
In addition, the house sale and contract needed to go through a relocation company so there was a lot more paperwork and information to be managed. Alex navigated through that entire process in the most professional way, providing the highest level of confidence.
We were in Southern California by the time the house sold and it was a seamless experience. She made sure everything was completed and ready for the buyers!
We highly recommend her. Her high level of professionalism and commitment, personality and wit (yes, she is also really funny) will make for a great experience."
"I cannot say enough about how patient, kind, and helpful Alex was during my first-time home buying experience. She was knowledgeable and understood what I was looking for. It took quite a long time for me to find the right place, yet I never felt rushed or pressured into buying the wrong one. The team she recommended working with for mortgage lending and legal counsel were also great throughout the whole process."
"We're so glad we worked with Alex to find our first house. She was patient and easygoing, and took the time to learn about what was important to us so we could find the right fit. We never felt like she was "selling" us, and in fact she offered her honest opinion about some of the less than stellar properties we saw. She was also incredibly helpful and thorough walking us through the process from offer to closing. We would definitely recommend Alex for anyone, especially first-time home buyers in need of guidance.

"We could not be any more grateful for the work Alex put into selling our home. We made a quick and BIG decision to move to Austin,TX to be closer to family. As overwhelmed as we were, Alex helped us stay at ease from start to finish. She was extremely professional, knowledgeable, easy to reach (even when she was on vacation) and always handled everything with a smile. If there were any issues or concerns that we were confronted with, Alex immediately guided us in the right direction. You clearly love what you do. Thank You Alex!"
"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!"
