About Me

Clients rely on my keen market insight and excellent negotiating skills

to help reach their real estate goals. I have the enthusiasm,

experience and expertise needed to create buying and selling success!


Yvonne grew up watching her mother, a longtime REALTOR®, excel in the world of real estate. She vividly remembers sitting in the front seat of the car with her mom's MLS book sitting between them.   


"I knew that somehow I'd follow in my mother's footsteps, helping people realize their dreams in home ownership and, like her, find it considerably rewarding to work with people in such a personal way on what is most likely their most valued asset."


After graduating from the University of Michigan, Yvonne found work in the competitive advertising world at what was then known as Needham, Harper & Steers.  Market dynamics, target marketing and demographics played an important role in her work and would prove to be a valuable knowledge base for her future real estate career.  She ultimately found herself in network television sales for the CBS Television Network and enjoyed 10 years there before deciding that a flexible work schedule would be best for her growing family.


Today, Yvonne consistently achieves $15+ million in annual sales volume, and also places a high value on her own ongoing training and education. She earned the prestigious Certified Residential Specialist designation, which fewer than 4% of REALTORS® have nationwide today. A recipient of numerous industry awards, she also holds her broker's license. 


"I feel it is critically important to be a supportive listener, advisor and advocate for my clients, as well as a positive influence throughout the transaction. It is my job to bring everyone to the closing table, proactively troubleshooting any issues that may arise. I help all parties feel a win-win experience."      


Yvonne and her husband, Milo, have 3 grown children.  She is very active in the Elmhurst community where she resides, having served as the president of the Junior Unit of the Elmhurst Memorial Hospital Guild and as the Elmhurst Kitchen Expedition chairperson for many years.

"In today's fiercely competitive real estate market, contact me for the professionalism and integrity needed for one of the biggest decisions of your life."

Clients are saying:

"Yvonne is simply the BEST in the business. I have and will always recommend her to all of my friends. She has un-matched local knowledge of the area and her counsel was essential to me throughout the process. She is so easy to deal with and talk to-she has a great business style that puts you at ease. For me, there is no better partner than Yvonne."
