A little about me:

As a Chicagoland native, I have always been fascinated by the diverse array of real estate that Chicago and the surrounding suburbs have to offer. During my high school years at Loyola Academy, where students hail from both city and suburbs, I had the unique opportunity to explore and become familiar with areas spanning from the neighborhoods in downtown Chicago all the way to the Wisconsin border. As I traveled from city to suburbs and back, visiting friends from all over, I found that I truly enjoyed learning about different areas and seeing all the different types of buildings and spaces that people called home.

Though I left Chicago to attend undergraduate school at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, I returned to Chicago for law school at the Loyola University School of Law and resumed my exploration of Chicago’s various diverse and vibrant neighborhoods.  I graduated, was admitted to Illinois Bar, and immediately began working at a fast-paced insurance litigation defense firm. While I enjoyed the high-energy aspect of working at a trial litigation firm, I soon felt like something was missing.  Fate intervened a short time later when I began working with a broker from Baird & Warner to purchase a home in downtown Chicago.

As we visited buildings in different neighborhoods, I discovered how much I truly enjoyed the entire home buying process. I loved sifting through listings, walking through the neighborhoods, and seeing properties that others had turned into homes. It was then, during my own home search, that I realized that I wanted to help other people find their perfect homes or sell their current homes so that they could move on to their next life adventure. I kept my law license, left the law firm, and obtained my broker’s license. My experience with Baird & Warner during my own home search was so positive that I knew right where I wanted to end up. Now, I can proudly say that I am a broker with Baird & Warner.

My path to working in residential real estate was a winding one, but now I’m where I belong. I’ve lived in and explored both this magnificent city and its beautiful suburbs for my entire life, so if you are looking to buy, sell, or rent a home in or around Chicago, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
