I am a full time realtor, specializing in Oak Park, River Forest, and several western suburbs. In addition, I have served clients in various city neighborhoods, including Lakeview, the Gold Coast, and Lincoln Park. I am a native Oak Parker, and currently live in Oak Park with my husband Andrew, and our girls, Stephanie and Sophia. I have a couple of addictions: HGTV, container gardening, and any travel that involves a beach, a book and some historical home tours! I have been selling real estate since 2002, and I have been very successful. In 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 I was named a Five Star Agent, which I am especially proud of, because I was voted in by my clients!
I spent almost twenty years in corporate America prior to my real estate career. My prior career involved a lot of negotiation, marketing and client management. I never thought that work could be like this! It really is true that if you love what you do, you never work a day in your life. I am very lucky to live in this amazing community, and to share it with people looking for a place to live and raise their families that is friendly and welcoming to all.
I feel privileged to accompany my clients on their journey as they search for the perfect place to call home. People are often buying or selling a home because of a major life change, sometimes a positive one and sometimes a challenging one. I make an effort to get to know my clients, their likes and dislikes, and their motivations, so that I may best help them to achieve their real estate goals. Sometimes people are in a hurry, relocating from another city, trying to transplant their families as soon as possible. Other times, the search is a more casual one, one where the family will move only if the home of their dreams comes onto the market. Whatever the time frame, I treat each of my clients with the respect and consideration that they need, and provide them with the information that will help them to come to a decision on their own.
Whether you are moving in, moving up, or moving out, I would love to work with you. There are strategies to buying and selling successfully in any kind of market, with any budget! Call me and let's talk about all that is possible.
