A more simple home-buying and selling experience.

For Iris, real estate isn't just about selling houses. It's also about guiding her clients through what can be a very emotional experience. Buying and selling a home is one of the most stressful situations that we find ourselves in, but Iris brings her process and a guiding calm to ensure any transaction goes as smoothly as possible, and representing the best interests of her clients. Her education backround in communication gives her the skills to clearly communicate with her clients and other brokers and parties to the transaction to ensure that there are no misunderstandings. Likewise, her communication skillls benefit her clients with her abily to present information in such a way as to create an advantage for her clients.   In working with both buyers and sellers, Iris has the eye to help her clients prepare their home to attract the highest number of potential buyers. Similarly, she is able to funnel and filter so that her buyers find the properties that fit their needs and wants, without hassles or time wasted. Iris is able to create this success for her clients due to her perspective in listening first, her empathy in understanding what her clients are experiencing, and the process through which she guides her clients.    Iris currently lives in Lincoln Park with her husband, daughter and two dogs named  Daisy May and Lily Bear. She loves to enjoy the neighborhood and the wonderful city of Chicago. 

Clients are saying:

"Iris is amazing!! She made sure to show us houses that she knew we would want. When we found the perfect house she wasted no time and put forth our best offer, while keeping our best interest in mind. 30 days later and we had our dream home! If you want to find your perfect house at a perfect deal Iris will definitely do that for you!"

"Iris made the process of buying a home an absolute breeze. She was incredibly attentive -- always quick to respond and always looking out for my best interests. As a first-time buyer the process can be confusing, but Iris made sure that I was fully understanding at every step of the way. She regularly checked in, reminded me when an action on my part was required, and answered every question I had patiently and confidently. A process that began with a lot of anxiety and uncertainty on my end was quickly turned into a great experience by Iris.

Iris went above and beyond, even offering to help me rent rooms after buying the unit. She recommended a lender, an attorney, and an inspector that were great to work with and made the process even more seamless, acting as the link between all parties involved.

Iris truly knows how provide great service, and I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone!"

"Iris was AMAZING to work with. We sold two houses and purchased another one. She was very responsive throughout the entire process and was made available to us whenever we need her for questions. She guided us through the sales process and sold the first one the first day it went on the market and the second home, within two weeks, while the rest of the neighbors selling are still sitting on the market. She has an in depth knowledge of where to price things to find the most amount of buyers in the market. Her service goes above and beyond anything I expected. If you are looking to sell or buy, she is the person to go to."

"In January my husband and I began the process of looking for our first home. We were overwhelmed before even starting when we decided to go to two open houses. The first (our first one ever!) left us confused and unsure how we were going to make buying a house happen. And then we walked into our second...greeting us was Iris, whose kindness, knowledge, and calm immediately put us at ease. She showed us the house, answered questions, explained many things that were over our heads but she made sense of for us, and generally gave us hope about the whole process. My husband and I exchanged a quick word and it was sealed: we right away asked if she’d help us find our first home. *Important: our normally-cautious 2 year old daughter was chasing her around the house by the end of the tour...that speaks volumes!

Within two days she and her colleague were at our kitchen table at 7:30am(!! because that’s what we could manage with work and daycare schedules and she is awesome), explaining the home buying process and helping us better define what we were looking for.

From that moment forward Iris answered texts immediately and at sometimes odd hours (we tried saying ‘no rush’ but she was always super quick to respond, and always reassuring us she’s here to help). I would see a new listing, text Iris, and within the hour she’d have confirmed showings within sometimes the same day!

Iris was always so positive, calm and confident, advocating strongly for us, explaining things in ways we understood, and was so incredibly reliable. We asked for recommendations for just about everything and she had wonderful people (attorney, lender, inspector) that we have been so, SO happy with. It feels like we were wrapped up in a bubble of people looking out for us. She was on emails and would help us make sense of all the information coming our way and help us remember if a response was needed.

In ~1.5 months we saw around two dozen homes, always with Iris providing honest feedback while also helping to see potential. Being first time home buyers we have been a little anxious at times, but we were always made to feel no question was too small and no worry too silly to bring up.

When looking back today-the day we closed on our beautiful, warm, wonderful new home-my husband and I reflected on how the magic all started the moment we met Iris, when she wrapped us up and guided us to this day. We would HIGHLY recommend Iris to anyone and everyone looking for support in the home buying (or selling or anything!) process! Truly the best there is."

"We would not have found such a wonderful property without Iris. Her guidance and knowledge of the industry allowed us to find the perfect place to call home!"
