As resident of Chicago for about 25 years and she has lived in Lincoln Park, Lakeview and Ravenswood. She has a strong knowledge of the city and is very familiar with all of Chicago's neighborhoods. Her passion for learning about the individual characteristics of the city's neighborhoods, as well as her interest in investing in the Chicago real estate market, has lead her to pursue a career as a real estate consultant.

Finding the appropriate "exit" strategy was very important in that particular housing market and it was imperative to work with an agent that has an understanding of the options available.

Clients are saying:

"Carrie was an excellent agent. We found her through a referral and couldn't have been happier with the service she provided us. She was patient, knowledgeable and most important honest. She knew what to ask and what to look for in each home..which were things we, as second time homeowners, would never have thought of. She picked us up and drove us around the whole entire day explaining the area we were looking in and some landmarks to look out for. I would recommend Carrie to anyone looking for a house in Chicago! She knows the area extremely well and was an absolute pleasure to work with. She followed up with us constantly between putting in an offer, and closing almost 3 months later! Thanks Carrie for all your help. Thanks to you, we found our dream home."
