I take great pride in the work that I do and I strive to always deliver blue ribbon service. Every customer is treated as if they were going to live right next door to me! I have built a business I love based on professionalism and experience, with most of my business coming from my past clients.
Prior to becoming a realtor, I was a residential paralegal for some of the top developers in Illinois, Kennedy Homes, Kimball Hill Homes and Zale Homes. This is where I honed my expert negotiating skills and executive homes became what I know best, some call it my niche.
When you choose to partner with me you will find that I am different from most agents. I will rely upon factual data over emotion and guess work. When pricing a home I do apply Power Pricing principals utilizing Standard and Poor’s, Case Schiller Home Values Report. You can agree homes are like most other commodities you own, say, gold and silver. I will also look to comparative home sales in your area to determine the absorption rate and track trends. This allows me to market your home in your market place and sell your home for the best price within your timeline.
When I partner with you as a seller, I work actively with you to develop a comprehensive strategic marketing plan which would include, "first peek" open houses, broker receptions, networking with only the top buyer’s agents successful in your area, along with the latest in technology and online marketing. These are just a few.
When partnering with buyers, I listen intently to their needs and goals and carefully select each property search to meet those needs. From condos to castles, I have helped my clients in finding and purchasing their ideal home in Chicago's Northwest Suburbs.
When I am not at work for my clients, I am actively involved with the Barrington Chamber of Commerce. Over the past 8 years, my charitable cause has been WINGS (We In Need Gain Strength), a program that provides aide and safe housing to battered women and their children. That is until recently, when my eldest son was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, MS, I now share my charitable efforts between the WINGS program and Go Orange Race to Erase MS. I do not run, so I do my part with #ShoptoEraseMS. Ask me about my new tee shirt.
Not that you would know it, but, I am a proud grandmother of seven grandchildren who enjoys attending hockey games, 2 of the boys play hockey. When the AAA team has an away game, I watch by livestream. I am always cheering my family on in their sports, one of the girls is in competitive cheerleading and her brother is in football. I also support them on with educational achievements, Tom is attending De Paul on a full academic scholarship and his sister will begin college next year working toward a teaching degree. I enjoy family first, am an animal lover and a wine enthusiast. I enjoy good chocolate, gourmet cooking and entertaining at home.
