About Me

Marlene is a career professional in sales and customer service. Her career began in advertising and marketing as an Executive Recruiter for three Fortune 500 Companies. There she honed her skills in sales and client satisfaction. For Marlene it was more than just filling high level positions—she prided herself in "perfect pairings"…the right person for the exact right position. In early 2000 she had a desire to take those skills into a new arena altogether. "If I can pair people with just the right position why not people with just the right home"…and a new career began. 

Marlene  worked with builders in the early 2000's building/selling/rehabbing homes on the North Shore and Northwest Suburban area as well as selling residential properties on the North Shore. During the housing slump Marlene used the time to arm herself with training and certifications in the burgeoning market of distressed properties and foreclosures. As the industry rebounded these skills still serve her well as she negotiates the best possible deal weather it be for her buyers or sellers. One of her seller's recently said of her:  "Marlene rolls up her sleeves and makes the deal come together no matter how long it takes"  Marlene has expanded her service area to include the Northwest Region as well as the North Shore.

Based in Park Ridge, Marlene has enjoyed the market up-turn and now serves clients from first-time buyers, to empty nesters. With a background in rehabbing and building custom homes, and a keen design eye,  Marlene brings her design/rehab skill set into every deal.  Whether it's pre-list readiness and staging a home for sale or working alongside buyer's in color selection, furniture placement or design suggestions, she's ready to roll up her sleeves.

In Her Words:  "I partner with my clients in the WHOLE selling or buying process." Visit my web-site or call me at: 224-374-7624
