STOP LOOKING.START FINDING.
Another adventure - after just shy of two years in Nashville, I received an invitation to join family in Northern CA and am now living in Fremont enjoying each day with my granddaughter! Also on board this adventure are her parents :) Although I am not licensed here in CA I would be delighted to help you find a great agent if the need arises. Of course our relocation professionals are always happy to assist, as well. I am stll fully licensed in IL and affiliated with @Highland Park. My adventure continues. I love where I live and you will too!!!

I grew up in Yonkers, New York and graduated cum laude from CUNY, Lehman College in the Bronx. Graduate studies at the University of Chicago brought me to the Midwest where I pursued academics, a 28-year career in the trust and investment arena working for Chicago banks, followed by six years in residential real estate. I have two adult children and one granddaughter. I am an equestrian and enjoy training in dressage. Other interests include painting/mixed media, photography and design.
Clients are saying:
"“You are terrific. I trusted my instincts and they were right. The marketing of my property (even though I balked at the idea of open houses) was right on. The photos you arranged, I thought, did my house justice - of course I am biased. I can’t believe how quickly responses with offers came in – 46 days to contract! I thought I’d still be there based on market conditions eight to nine months later. You were always very professional when dealing with me and others. Your knowledge about various house issues and your recommendations for use of outside professionals was much appreciated – from radon issues and roofing contractors to real estate attorney referrals – you were ‘johnny on the spot’. You didn’t even blink an eye with my quirkiness about my dear pet. I know you comforted her when there were strangers in the house – that was very touching. Bottom line – you did a great job for me and I would recommend you to anyone who asks and even those who don’t.” Laurie"
