As a Chicago native I was born and raised on the North Side of the city. After graduating from Arizona State University I returned to Chicago to follow my true passion in Real Estate. I've called various neighborhoods ‘home' including Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Rogers Park, West Ridge, Norwood Park, Norridge, Niles and Park Ridge.

My success in the industry has been built on the principles of always putting my clients' interests first and tirelessly going above and beyond to provide the highest quality service and experience possible. My ability to be honest and upfront with my clients while being patient to their needs sets me apart. I feel it's important to get to know my clients to better understand their housing and real estate goals. Then, together, we can determine a plan to achieve their goal.

Over the past 2 decades I've helped many clients find their perfect home, sell in a competitive market and built a successful business on referrals. My clients can see and feel how much this business means to me. They sense my passion, trust my expertise and feel comfortable putting their biggest investment in my hands. Over 90% of my business is from past clients, referrals and positive word-of-mouth.

As a member of @properties I am backed by the support and global resources of Chicago's most prolific real estate company. Technology and Marketing is constantly evolving and improving. Knowing that @properties stays at the forefront of the latest trends and marketing avenues allows me to focus on my clients and the best ways to achieve their goals.
