A Michigan native, Elaine has lived in Chicago since 2017. Before embarking on a career in real estate, she taught abroad in China and Spain. She then went on to work in cultural exchange in Chicago, working with international students visiting the U.S. Elaine has always had a passion for real estate, and specializes in first-time homebuyers in the Chicago area. As a real estate agent, her first priority is to make her clients happy. She listens to her clients' wants and needs, and advocates for them every step of the way. Elaine knows it can be intimidating to move to a new city or neighborhood, and she strives to ensure that the buying, selling, or renting process is easy to navigate. In her free time, Elaine enjoys restoring antique furniture and biking along Chicago’s lakefront path. Elaine lives in Irving Park with her husband and two cats.
