About Me

With 20 years of experience I bring unparalleled expertise to residential buying and selling. My unmatched depth of knowledge of Chicago's luxury residential market that covers all facets of deals including high value transactions, financing, relocation, project management, and design.

I am respected by other brokers throughout the Chicago Luxury Real Estate market. They know that when working with me, transactions will be professional, smooth and efficient.  As a master of negotiation and logistics, I am results driven while keeping my clients' priorities top of mind.  My goal is to provide a holistic service across the entire experience, anticipating and problem solving issues before they arise and working with clients from pre-sale until well after the closing often earning me the title of go-to-gal.

From first-time home buyers to CEOs, my client base is as diverse as the properties I represent.  I focus on selling new and resale properties in downtown Chicago high-rise condominiums, vintage buildings, townhomes, lofts, single-family homes, investment properties and luxury real estate.  I have sold homes as far north as the North Shore and as far west as Aurora, I specialize in the city's vast neighborhoods that I am proud to call home. I know the Chicago neighborhoods like the back of my hand -- from Hyde Park to Rogers Park / Gold Coast to Bucktown and everything in between.
