A native of Chicagoland, I have lived and worked on the North Shore for many years and am extremely knowledgeable about our unique cluster of villages. Besides helping buyers and sellers in the New Trier Community, my range includes Evanston, Glenview, Northbrook, Highland Park, and Lake Forest. While each town has its own special flavor and personality, residents of these communities share amenities, recreational facilities and business opportunities.  I find this more expansive suburban lifestyle to be a huge draw to our area, and enjoy introducing out-of-towners to all that the Greater North Shore has to offer.

While raising my three children in Winnetka, I have been an active participant in local community organizations, serving as an elementary school PTA  president and as a board member of the New Trier Booster Club, the New Trier Education Foundation, and the Auxiliary of the Evanston/Glenbrook Hospitals.

My past professional experience in teaching, sales, marketing, public relations and publishing have helped me develop the skills necessary for a successful career in real estate.

I enjoy helping buyers assess their needs and carefully evaluate properties under consideration. Connecting people with a home that will become a backdrop for creating treasured memories is one of  the most satisfying aspects of my job. Equally rewarding is assisting homeowners in all facets of the selling process when they are ready to enter a new phase of their lives. From the moment they decide to list their home, to the final signatures at the closing table, I believe in maintaining close communication with sellers and keeping them updated with all pertinent market information as it evolves. 

By conducting every transaction with the utmost professionalism, I have earned the respect of other real estate agents, which has enabled my clients to experience a smooth buying or selling process.

I am experienced in handling a wide variety of real estate transactions, and tackle every sale with genuine enthusiasm--from the smallest condo to a multi-million dollar home. From lakefront, to family neighborhood, to in-town pied-a-terre, I'm cheerfully ready to assist my clients. 

Real estate transactions represent important transitions in life. Some are accompanied by the exuberance of realizing a dream, while others mark difficult milestones. I am committed to helping all of my clients navigate these transitions with the understanding, sensitivity and humor that will ensure the most positive experience possible. I welcome the opportunity to share in your next real estate chapter!
