"I adjust & even anticipate my client's needs. I'm direct & unafraid to have candid conversations that are paramount to their success in the sale & purchase of their homes and/or investments.  Markets fluctuate & there are multiple variables that I address upfront to ensure my clients are 'in the know' making their transition as seamless as possible". Annie is a seasoned professional & she'll guide you in assessing the value of your current or perspective home which will enable negotiations from facts--not conjecture.  

"I absolutely love real estate & the process involved in putting a deal together.  In my role as a consultant-- my clients feel the energy & passion I evoke as I speak about market trends, neighborhoods & the peripherals of staging, photography & design!  I leverage cultivated relationships in the brokerage community to get my clients in to see homes not yet listed to the public.  I have a staunch sense of loyalty & urgency that generates results.  My clients come first, always." 

Annie has lived in almost every neighborhood in the city.  She currently resides in the Fulton Market River District.  She enjoys exploring new restaurants, staging & interior design. Annie is an animal advocate, loves yoga & running along the river walk. Many of her past clients become dear friends that make up what she refers to as her urban family.

Clients are saying:

"Annie helped me to purchase my home in 2006. She was absolutely amazing to work with!! This was my first home purchase and Annie was extemely patient in showing me a number of condos in a variety of neighborhoods. Given it was a very new experience for me, I was anxious during the process and Annie went out of here way to ensure I felt comforatble every step of the way. It was apparent that Annie truly cared that I purchased the right home for me at the right price. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone in my life that is looking to rent or buy a home in Chicago."
