My philosophy has always been, Those Who Don't Believe in Magic will Never Find It. This resonates with me because I genuinely feel that we live in a world full of endless possibilities and when you start looking for unimaginable and unbelievable things with curiosity, amazing things start to unfold.
This positive outlook has guided me through the years and has brought me much success. For me, success is about valuable relationships and recognizing great opportunities and seizing upon them. As they say, this life is not a dress rehearsal, so be fearless!
Growing up in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, I got an early taste of the real estate world with my mother being a Realtor since the 80's. After graduating from ASU and moving back to Chicago, I followed in my mother's footsteps and The Ahern Group was formed. Also to the roster is Mike DiPlacido, who brings his past medical sales expertise to the real estate market. Combined we have over 50 years of experience under our belts performing as Top Producers in the field.
Recently I have expanded to the Michigan real estate market and am also licensed there. I have a second home in St Joe, and I absolutely love the change of pace and beauty of Michigan and I want to share this experience with others. I am an expert in the summer home/second home market, as well. I've spent my whole life enjoying Southwest Michigan and I am excited to help clients do the same.
Along with my years of experience marketing and negotiating real estate deals, I have a great eye and passion for design. As a designer, I am always looking at the "big picture" and have helped countless clients with staging and preparing their home for sale. I can help your home look its absolute best with furniture arrangements, and suggestions on small to large updates to position the home in the best light possible and get the most money in return. I am always on top of trends and know what buyers are looking for. I also well-versed in the most cost-effective ways to improve your home. I have an entire team I've worked with throughout the years, including painters, contractors, plumbers, you name it... "I got a guy!"
It is my guarantee, that whether buying, selling, or investing….you will be in good hands with me.
