STOP LOOKING.START FINDING.
"A Realtor is not a Salesperson. She is a Matchmaker.
She introduces People to Homes, until they Fall in Love with one.
Then, she is a Wedding Planner."
Truly, I do not think there is a greater quote that better relates to how I feel about my role as your Realtor. This may be due to the fact that after graduating with a degree in Social Work from Illinois State University, I worked at an offline, boutique Matchmaking firm in the heart of Chicago. Transitioning from a Matchmaking role into Real Estate came easy as I found the same set of skills used in working with a Matchmaking client are used in working with a Real Estate client. Understanding a client's wants and needs, learning preferences and deal-breakers and establishing what a happy relationship/home looks like are three of the skills that help me create a successful relationship with my client. This then guides us both to great success in finding the perfect match - a place to call home.
Born and raised in the Chicago suburbs and a resident of the Wicker Park neighborhood for two years, I am confident in my knowledge when it comes to all things location and neighborhood-wise in Chicago and its surrounding areas. In my little spare time, I enjoy exploring and learning more about Chicago's 77 diverse neighborhoods while on a quest for the best (authentic please!) Mexican food in the city. Designing jewelry, net-working, music festivals, match-making, and interior decorating also occupy my time when not in the office.
As your Matchmaker, I look forward to potentially working with you, as either a renter, buyer or seller.
Please feel free to reach out to me by phone or email, today!

"Carly helped my fiancé and I find our first apartment in the city. From the start, Carly was in constant communication with us and worked hard to put together a ton of great information before we even saw any places. Carly put together two full days of touring which included an itinerary and great insights about specific locations and buildings. Carly was really on top of everything, was very organized, and made our experience completely stress free. We ended up finding our apartment and signing within 72 hours. We would definitely recommend utilizing Carly for anyone looking to buy, rent, or sell in the area!"
