About Me

Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, I've called Chicago home for close to 20 years. I love its beauty, diversity, neighborhoods, and most importantly, it's people!


After graduating from Indiana University-Bloomington with a degree in fine arts and art history, I began my career in fundraising and marketing for several Chicago-based non-profit organizations. It's this experience as a superb listener and communicator, along with my understanding and knowledge of market trends, which helps me create new opportunities for my clients in an ever-changing real estate market. 


Buying or selling a home is one of the most exciting, exhilarating, stressful and important things you will ever do. You can trust that I will listen to your wants and needs, work continually as we find the perfect property, help you navigate a complicated process, and advocate for you every step of the way. Whether you are a first time homebuyer, expanding your family, or considering downsizing, I look forward to bringing my knowledge enthusiasm and expertise to help you reach your goals. Whatever your real estate need, I'm ready to assist you through every step of the real estate process - from negotiation final prices to handling legal issues and paperwork.


I live in the North Mayfair neighborhood on the northwest side of Chicago with my husband, three children and two pitties. In my spare time I am busy serving as President of my neighborhood school PTO, running (completed my first marathon in Oct 2018!), yoga, cooking, spending time with family and friends, and taking in all Chicago has to offer! 

Clients are saying:

"We were not having any luck finding a renter for our 4 bed/2 bath unit and were quite concerned heading into the winter season so we asked Alex to take over our listing. She immediately pulled up comps and expected market times for similar listings in our neighborhood giving us a true understanding of price point and market lead time. She kept our expectations realistic but competitive at the same time. She hosted numerous showings and one mini open-house which yielded us a couple applications to choose from. We are glad to say she was able to find us a great tenant in the most difficult of times (and quicker than the average market wait time!). Alex always kept us posted with activity, was upbeat and professional, and maintained a positive outlook. She guided us each step of the way and answered any questions we had very promptly. I would highly recommend Alex to guide you through a time that would otherwise be very stressful, whether it be renting, buying, or selling a property. Thank you Alex!"
