After a career in social work, I transitioned into real estate in 2004. I learned early on that the qualities and skills that made me an effective social worker, were also the cornerstones of the kind of Realtor I wanted to be; foundationally solid, grounded in empathy, problem-solving, reliable and intuitive, yet able to lean into the specifics and nuances of each seller and buyer with flexibility, energy, and a love of learning. I thrive at the intersection between the head and the heart, and while I meet my clients where they are, I leave them elevated in the experience. The whole of who I am creates a dynamic, integrated exchange between myself and my clients so that the "Comforts of Home" occurs within the professional relationship and long before the closing.
It is my mission to be in partnership with my clients. Whether you're buying your first home or you’re navigating the waters of buying and selling simultaneously, I believe that education, expertise and communication guide you through those transactions. Whether you're a first time seller or selling your parents’ long time family home, my approach is comprehensive - focused on your personal needs all along the way. It is with the highest standards, that I walk my clients through each step so they are informed and well guided.
As a community-minded person, I am motivated by making connections, fostering relationships, and working together to make our station in life a positive one. I started “In the 56” - a platform to promote and encourage support for local Mount Prospect treasures. I also volunteer at the pediatric department at Lutheran General. Most recently, I joined my alma mater’s recruitment team, championing the small but mighty Hanover College.
My husband, Rob, and I lived in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago before moving to the suburbs. We now live in Mount Prospect with our 3 children and 2 pups. Our passions include cheering on the Cubs & our favorite college hoops teams, spending time in the city and traveling!
