I am a native of Evanston and 7 year Uptown resident that has spent most of my life cultivating a personal and professional relationship with Chicagoland. I joined the @ family in the fall of 2009. Ever since I have strived to ensure that all of my clients have a real estate experience that helps them fall in love with Chicagoland the same way I have. Whether it is getting a seller the highest possible price in the shortest amount of time or making sure a buyer ends up in a home that suits all of their needs within their budget, I am resolute in my commitment that my clients' experience is an efficient, effective, and positive one. I firmly believe that my clients deserve a relationship with their agent that extends beyond the close of a transaction. Total care means being a knowledge and referral source, not just a transactional advisor. The Zupancic Group, of which I am a member, is dedicated to providing that total care to our clients and has nearly a century of combined experience in real estate.
I earned a B.A. in English Literature from Denison University in 1999. From there I turned my eyes skyward. After finishing the Professional Pilot Program at Delta Connection Academy near the top of my class, I subsequently served as both a flight and ground school instructor. I then headed to the airlines where I spent most of my 5 year career based out of JFK Airport in New York. While vastly different in execution I see the key principles that make a safe flight and a successful real estate transaction as being quite similar: Sound fundamental knowledge, an awareness of the surrounding environment, and a plan for all contingencies. In my tenure in the aviation industry I learned the ability to work in high pressure, high risk environments, and to absorb all the information around me. As a broker, I have spent the last 12 years adapting and honing those skills for this industry. It is my job to serve as co-pilot to my clients and arm them with the market understanding and professional support necessary to safely navigate their transaction.
At the core of a stable real estate market is a healthy and vibrant community. Giving back to the town from which I have so greatly benefited is important to me. To that end, I serve as President Emeritus of the ETHS Foundation board and as a general member of the Youth and Opportunity United board.
