STOP LOOKING.START FINDING.
I am passionate about my love for the North Shore and the real estate here. The wide variety of architectural styles, different neighborhoods, cute downtowns, great parks, fabulous schools, proximity to the lake and to downtown Chicago- I love it all! My husband, Dan, and I have made Winnetka our home since moving from the city in 1985. My previous career as a buyer for Marshall Fields gave me a lifelong love for the analytical components, design and communication elements that are so beneficial in the real estate world. Having raised our 3 kids- now young adults living in the city and the North Shore, I am very well versed in the New Trier communities in particular- the schools, neighborhoods, parks, amenities and just about anything else you might want or need to know. After numerous years as a community volunteer (Winnetka caucus schools and parks committee, Winnetka Park District board member, Winnetka Parks Foundation Board member, Greeley PTA President, New Trier Booster Club member, JPA Auxiliary Board member and more), I decided that my love of the North Shore and knowledge of the schools and neighborhoods might serve me well as a real estate agent. I have sold over 110 million since 2000. I truly love what I do. When I am not working with clients, I enjoy playing paddle, tennis and going to Salt Fitness. I love spending time with family and friends, entertaining, going out to eat, reading a great book and traveling- Cape Cod is a favorite destination.
My Goal as your Agent
Simply Sensational Service is what I pride myself on delivering to each and every one of my clients. I understand how important it is for my buyers and sellers to feel that they are receiving the attention they need and deserve throughout the entire process. My role as your agent is to make the emotional and stressful processes of buying and selling a home as seamless, painless and hopefully as enjoyable as possible. We are a team. It is my responsibility to guide you through every step with honesty, integrity, attentiveness, insight, professionalism and enthusiasm in order to get you to the finish line. I work with an excellent, well established team of mortgage brokers, real estate attorneys, professional inspectors, marketing and advertising coordinators, stagers and expert photographers. I provide my clients with an extensive list of resources for all your needs. Quite simply, I will take you from A to Z throughout the entire process, and that doesn't stop when the house sale has closed. Many of my clients end up being good friends.
I am honored to be a recipient of the Chicago Five Star Professional Award - https://www.fivestarprofessional.com/spotlights/48551-nominated by my clients and published in Chicago Magazine- for the past 6 years straight- 2014 through 2019. The greatest reward I receive as a real estate consultant is the referral and repeat clients who represent the majority of my business.
It would be an honor and a pleasure to represent you with your real estate needs. I look forward to working with you!
