About Me



I have worked with people my entire career, until 9 years ago only in Healthcare.  I have spent my life taking care of and educating people.  In my early career as an Emergency Medical Technician and volunteer firefighter, that was where my passion was. Later, with 5 children and a busy husband, it changed to doing health screenings, educating and teaching CPR which I still do too, when time allows ,with North Shore University Health Systems .  By the time my youngest child was going to kindergarten  I had a new passion, though my family would tell you it was an obsession,  REAL ESTATE!!   Previous clients may even tell you that I am obsessive!!  I need to get the right family in the right home! I love the architecture, the history and the challenge!

For the past 9 years I have been helping people find their dream home.  I love it!! What's not to love? I love helping and educating people as I always have.  I get to guide them through the process of buying and/or selling their home, a huge transition in a family's life.  Educating them along the way, and most of the time continuing to learn myself. 

I came about in the Real Estate world at a time when short sales and foreclosure sales were more often than not and where technology is leading the way.  I decided that @properties was a perfect fit for me.  Leading the way in Chicago and the North Shore with leading technology, fantastic people who take great care to stay ahead of the rest with that same passion for our clients and the local community.
