My 17-year professional career has always been very customer service oriented and that is my strength. I enjoy making sure the people I work with have the best possible experience. Whether buying or selling a home, the process can sometimes be stressful and a lot to manage. I will always do my best to take as much of the burden off my clients as possible and be a true advocate for them during this big financial and life changing process. I truly love my job and I've been told, it shows.

I got my Illinois Real Estate Broker License in 2003 and founded an apartment rental agency in Chicago, pairing landlords with tenants in Lincoln Park, Lakeview and the surrounding Northside neighborhoods. I became very familiar with the north side and what each neighborhood had to offer. I found a passion helping clients navigate the home search process. In 2008 My husband and I made the big ‘city-to-burbs move' and settled in La Grange, his hometown. I am now able to help clients buy and sell in the Western Suburbs, many of whom started out in the city, just like me!
I am very active on social media; as it is a big part of marketing homes for sale. These days you make your first impression online before the buyer visits the property.
Clients are saying:
"We highly recommend Lisa! Lisa carefully listens to what you want/need and then combines this with her experience and intimate knowledge of the area. Lisa is very responsive to communication and, as a buyers’ agent, truly helped to guide us through the process as an advocate and an educator, not at all a pushy salesman. We needed a rental while Lisa is helping us to look for a forever home, and inventory was low. Lisa went way above and beyond and contacted many homes for sale to see if she could negotiate a rental, and she was successful! Thanks to Lisa we have something that fully meets our needs while she helps us find our home. Choose Lisa, you won’t be disappointed! :)"
"Lisa was wonderful to work with. Will definitely work with her again and refer her to people. This was our first experience with Lisa. She was referred to by a friend and was happy to have had her expertise. She made the most incredible brochure for the condo in Chicago. So impressive. Never saw anything like it. I recommend 100%"
"We meet Lisa at an open house in La Grange Park, she was very easy going. My wife and I were first time home buyers, we didn't have everything in place yet, but we enjoyed going to open houses. Every other realtor that we met/spoken with ignored us because we didn't have our financing secured.
Lisa was the only one willing to show us listings and even take us on as clients, while we worked on our financing. She goes above and beyond for her clients, and she is amazing to work with and so are her recommended contacts, like Guy DiTuri, our attorney. She found us the exact house that we wanted, and for the right price.
If I ever buy or sell any properties in Illinois or any other state she is licensed in, I'm calling Lisa.
LISA, YOU'RE THE BEST :)"
"I am so grateful we found Lisa! She has been amazing to work
with. She assessed our family home which we owned for decades 18 months before we put it on the market, giving us tips on what to update. Her expertise in selling and buying was so valuable to us. In the fall, we sold our home for asking price in a week! She really got to know us and found us the perfect ranch for our new home. She was so enjoyable to spend time with, very responsive, very even keeled in her approach even with tough negotiations and always a great resource on all things real estate. We had such a great experience that our daughter, a first time buyer, worked with her to purchase a condo in South Loop and then my son and his family just closed on their first house in La Grange. She’s become our family realtor! We all think so highly of her, trust her implicitly and recommend her to be your family realtor!"
"Lisa is awesome! She was super helpful, extremely responsive, and supportive! Would highly recommend her, especially if you’re a first time buyer!"
