Carol Ann has been a licensed Realtor® for 17+ years, and with active real estate licenses in both Illinois and California, she brings a unique perspective to her clients. Knowledge of two markets offers two very different but enlightening perspectives. In addition to traditional residential real estate services, she provides out-of-state and international real estate connections thanks to her cross country network and her brokerage's affiliation with Christie's International Real Estate and Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®
Before following her Real Estate passion, Carol Ann spent years honing her customer service, marketing and technology skills in the Hospitality industry. Not only did she own her own restaurant, she managed several well-known Chicago restaurants, was New Concept Manager for a franchised organization with 200+ stores, and Sales Manager for a tech firm that helped restaurants find technology solutions. Carol Ann learned to embrace and get creative about what technology can do for business and how to market online. She puts social media and other tech tools to work whenever possible. This savvy, modern sense of marketing possibilities is an important part of what Carol Ann brings to the real estate table. But this background has also proven her strong sense of service, which brings a personal touch to her business relationships: "I love getting to know my clients and finding them the perfect match. I've been fortunate to have worked with such fantastic and loyal clients over the years." She is continually humbled when past clients call and would like help with another purchase or sale.
