Thank you for finding me... I'm glad you're here!
I am a Realtor and market expert in Crystal Lake, Lakewood, and greater McHenry County.
I have lived In Crystal Lake and Lakewood for over 40 years, and am intimately familiar with our neighborhoods, schools, and area amenities. This is so important when helping a buyer locate the perfect home, and also critical knowledge for properly marketing homes!
I feel that my clients appreciate hard work, creativity, honesty, strategic thinking, and straightforward communication. I will work tirelessly to bring these attributes to the table when you trust me with your business.
My background in executive sales and online marketing gives me a solid background for marketing and selling homes. Additionally, as a Certified Staging Consultant and a Certified Negotiation Expert, I have the necessary tools to make sure your home is seen in the best light, and negotiate effectively when the right offer comes in.
As a local real estate agent for over 10 years, I have a broad network of professional partners, which enables me to make life easier for my clients. From lenders, to home inspectors, contractors and attorneys, I have trusted, experienced partners to help you along the way.
Here are a few data points about my career as a residential real estate agent:
1) Baird & Warner Founder's Club recipient 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021
2) My listings over the last 12 months have sold in an average of 4.9 days, at 101.8% of list price.
3) I have done 250% more transactions in the past year than the average Realtor in our market area. This keeps me in touch with the 'pulse' of our local market.
4) If you hire me for your real estate needs, you will work directly with ME on all aspects of a purchase or sale. I intentionally do not have a team of less experienced agents to delegate to. I want to ensure that each of my clients is offered an exceptional, experienced level of service at all times.
I'd love to hear from you!
