About Me


Paula is a Chicagoan through-and-through. She was born and raised in West Rogers. She's moved to Old Town after college, then Wicker Park, and Bucktown. Currently, Paula has lived in Deerfield for the past 17 years. Paula has a bachelor's degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis in English. She spent six years at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange in one of the top clearing houses, Hammer Trading. This required Paula to work in a very fast paced environment while maintaining excellent relationships clients and customers who cleared through Hammer Trading. It eventually led her to work in another fast paced environment, the Title business. The bulk of her career has been in the title business, on the escrow side.  For the past 17 years, she has been an Escrow Officer/Mobile Closer for First American Title, Chicago Title, Wheatland Title, and Ravenswood Title.  

Paula has always had a passion for real estate.  As an Escrow Officer/Closing Officer and expert in title, she has helped thousands of people close loans on both the purchase and refinance sides.  She has always had a desire to assist in real estate in a more hands-on way.  With this unique combination of wanting to be more hands-on with clients coupled with her closing expertise, she can now bring that expertise as a real estate agent.  This adds to her unique ability to really listen, strategize a good plan, and understand the needs of her clients looking to sell or purchase property.

Paula is a member of The National Notary Association, The National Association of Realtors, Illinois Association of Realtors, Ast. Alumni, EIU Alumni, Hospitality Chair at Caruso, and committee volunteer for JUF.  Paula also is a loving mother to three teenage boys. She spends her free time with her family, friends, and people close to her. She also enjoys working out, music, reading, cooking, and going to Chicago often for fun and new/exciting activities.

Paula is excited to be joined up with the Danny Glick Team which will provide her with great support from one of the top brokerage teams within @properties and the city.  She is excited to work with both North Shore and Chicagoan clients.  

Clients are saying:


"Paula has been exemplary in all her efforts to help me sell my house in Deerfield. Early on she gave me excellent advise regarding clean up, improvements and presentation of my 1947 Sears Kit House. Throughout the process she was available and responsive and was particularly helpful while I was out of town while and after relocating to another state. Beyond that, a few days before the sale was about to close there was a freak event that caused both my sumps to fail after a rain shower and if she had not had the foresight to check on the property that day it would have cost me many tens of thousands of dollars. I am grateful to her and recommend her RE services to anyone and everyone.- R.H. B., Deerfield Seller"
