About me: As a passionate real estate professional and investor, I bring the same level of energy and focus to my clients that I would hope to receive if I were in their shoes. I believe my job is to articulate the value proposition at hand. My skills and services consistently include a depth of knowledge regarding current market trends and statistics as I negotiate the transaction and manage all of its moving parts with professionalism and strong relationship skills.

Closely associated with commercial and residential real estate development for over 30 years, I am able to bring unique insight when evaluating a property and its possibilities. My husband and I were fortunate to have realized our dream of designing and building our own home, which we have enjoyed for the last 20 years. Whether it's evaluating the structure of a building or options for interior renovation, I have dealt with multiple property situations in a range of styles and designs. 

A lifelong resident of the Lake Forest community involved in many community organizations, I provide knowledge on communities across Chicago's North Shore. Clients are able to leverage my experience to find not only their preferred home, but also the neighborhoods, schools and community engagement opportunities tailored to their individual family.

For sellers: When weighing the marketability of a home, together we will walk through your property and identify small repairs or improvements which positively impact the value of the home and outweigh the upfront cost. My marketing plans are structured to promote your property for maximum exposure to attract more buyers and incorporate the best and proven @properties technology available in the industry today.

For buyers: By remaining connected to the community, I am able to ensure we are not limited to just public listings. In the past, I have successfully matched a buyer with an off-market seller to avoid a bidding war. I make it my priority to get to know my clients with a listening ear to specific needs and am quick to match buyers and sellers. 

My Team: My team of professionals is ready to move quickly for our clients. We are able to capitalize on opportunities using our network of trusted loan officers, real estate attorneys, inspection experts, photographers, renovators, designers, stagers and more.

My @properties:

Established in 2000, @properties was built around a simple concept: provide brokers and clients with the highest level of service in the industry through cutting-edge technology and marketing programs, and remiain a culture that values relationships with a strong local focus.
