Liz believes that a successful business evolves from strong client relationships. And those relationships are built by working hard, always being available, knowing the market, and enjoying what you do. Becoming a realtor was a natural transition from working in interior design where she used her passion for working closely with clients to create their dream homes through creative remodeling and redesign. Liz understands houses from the inside out and is driven to work with buyers to find their dream homes. She is particularly proud of her ability to utilize her interior design experience to assist sellers on staging their homes to show them at their best. This creativity and drive coupled with her extensive knowledge of the Chicago real estate market puts Liz in a unique position to be highly successful for her clients.
Liz and her husband Jon have lived in Chicago for over 20 years and they are currently raising their two teenage sons in the beautiful Northcenter neighborhood. She has extensive first-hand knowledge of Chicago neighborhoods and schools, and is actively involved in the community. Liz enjoys volunteering at her sons’ schools, at church, with the Little Brothers of the Elderly Organization and the Common Food Pantry. In her spare time, Liz loves cycling, gardening and cheering on her sons in their many athletic pursuits. She particularly enjoys taking long walks with her dog on the lovely neighborhood streets.
The 14 years Liz spent as a critical care nurse and managing supervisor trained her to be caring, understanding, organized and calm under pressure. She knows the importance of using these skills to tirelessly work for her clients benefit. Liz is focused on understanding her client’s goals and bringing her market knowledge as well as that of the entire @properties family to achieve a flawlessly successful real estate transaction.
~ “Working with Liz has been an exceptional experience. Not only does she do all the basics right (highly professional, prompt, responsive, detailed, etc.), but her knowledge of the real estate market was incredibly valuable throughout the process. However, it’s Liz’s passion and expertise in real estate and design that really sets her apart. I felt like I was looking for a home with a fun and trusted friend, not just a real estate agent. Liz is truly wonderful to work with and I thoroughly enjoyed the home buying process from beginning to end” ~ V.M.
