I am passionate about helping my clients make the transition successfully but above all else, I want to be your partner throughout your real estate journey. I am thrilled to be part of the @properties team. A team that shares my core Real Estate values of comprehensive marketing, expert market knowledge, innovative technology, commitment to supporting local communities/businesses, and most importantly — client relationships.”

Selling property is unique for each person and no two people are alike. Perhaps it’s just an investment property or it’s your family home that has created years of memories. Finding your why is a crucial part of the selling process. At our first meeting we will get to the bottom of your why and tailor your marketing strategy to fit your selling approach. Once we identify your needs we will determine one of the most important factors – what to list your property for. With detailed and thorough comprehensive market analysis we will find your perfect pricing. I wanted to work with @properties for three reasons – its great team atmosphere, its support of Chicago and its locals, and its innovative marketing and technology. I will aggressively market your property through all platforms. Most importantly, I will continue to communicate and keep you updated through each phase to set your expectations and be sure to meet them.


It can be intimating to start the search for your dream home. I am here to help. At our initial meeting we will discuss all aspects of what is important to you. Taking into account all market factors and your personal needs, I will create a extensive list of available homes. I will also attend open houses with you and arrange showings. I will continue to update your needs as they develop and lend my expertise on each property. Once you find the right property, I will conduct a comprehensive market analysis to guide you to the best offer price. I will recommend lenders, attorneys, and all other resources you may need. Once you feel confident, I will present the offer and negotiate on your behalf. I will continue to manage your purchase until closing. After closing – I am still here to help! Home owning can come with a lot of new challenges and I want to help you navigate through them.
