For 15 years—before HGTV's "Fixer Upper" was even a thing—Noel and her husband rehabbed distressed properties, giving her lots of experience in spotting ways to add character and improvements to a home, not to mention navigating differences of opinion when more than one person goes into a property together.
From her experience flipping houses—and being married to a contractor—Noel is an expert on what types of permits a client may need to replace an HVAC, or the potential costs of putting in more duct work or tearing down a wall.
One of Noel's strengths is being able to break the buying, selling or remodeling process down into small, doable pieces. She also takes pride in making customers feel pampered with her signature concierge style treatment, bringing her clients everything from carpet samples to dinner in order to make their transaction smoother.
Noel has had her broker license since 2015 as part of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and the North Shore/Barrington Association of Realtors (NSBAR) and is a Certified Staging Agent, helping clients envision how to best stage and market a home for quick sale.
Noel and her husband are both natives of Arlington Heights where they returned to put down roots with their three kids who attend Hersey High School, Thomas Middle School and Olive-Mary Stitt Elementary (so she is a great resource for parents looking to buy in a good school district.)
A former teacher, Noel is a self-described sponge, spending her downtime educating herself on everything from educational podcasts on negotiation or rehabbing to housing trends on Pinterest.
