Growing up in Glenview, living in Barrington and spending the last 20 years working in the luxury market of Chicago has made me extremely adept at understanding the needs of my clients. I've always had a passion for Real Estate and design and love using my eye and knowledge to find the perfect home for my clients. My real estate career started at Caldwell Banker in Lincoln Park with Ames group Chicago where I was the director of sales. I then opened Engel and Volker's Chicago where I was a founding Broker and Director of sales. I moved to Austin Texas for a year with Engel and Volker's and when I came back to Barrington I explored my options and decided that @properties was perfectly in line with my values and is the best brokerage in the Chicago land area and I'm very happy I made the switch and love being part of the @properties family. When I'm not working, I love doing landscape design, gardening, playing my guitar, fishing and spending time outdoors with my wife Holly, Silver Lab Mr. Blue and Pomeranian Porcupine. I'm passionate about architecture and photography and when it comes time to relax you will usually find me reading a book or spending my time in Door County Wisconsin.
