About Me



Anne grew up on the north and northwest side of Chicago. She attended Loyola University and received a Master’s Degree in Education at Northeastern Illinois University.  She was a special education teacher at several elementary schools in Chicago.   She has been an Evanston resident for many years.




Her interest in real estate began when she purchased her first investment property in Chicago.  She found the process interesting and challenging so she began her real estate career on a part time basis in the summer and after teaching.  Quickly achieving success, she realized real estate sales can only be done on a full-time, fully committed basis, so she left teaching and has never looked back. 

Her first job in real estate was in an office located in Evanston on Howard Street, the border of Chicago and the North Shore.  Her orientation is both city and suburban.  She has sold commercial real estate in Chicago, new construction in Lindenhurst and everything in between.  When she started selling real estate, the interest rates were 18%, in what was called `the “creative financing” era!  She has been through “buyers” markets, “seller’s” markets, inflationary times, a few recessions and a period of stagflation, giving her a wealth of experience.




Anne draws from her education background to guide buyers and sellers through the real estate process, passing along the knowledge needed to make sound, milestone decisions.  It is this gentle yet sage guidance that has made her business highly successful.  She is proud of her stellar reputation that keeps satisfied buyers and sellers steadily referring family and friends.

Clients are saying:

"From the moment we first met Anne, we knew she was a very experienced and knowledgeable agent, but it was her warm and friendly personality that put us at ease. She always encouraged us to ask questions and guided us through the little details of the negotiation process (e.g., sending a personalizes cover letter with the offer). We would not hesitate to recommend Anne to any of our friends.Thanks Anne for all your help!"
