My home is my haven and I want to help you find yours! 

Buying and selling a home is one of the most important decisions of your life, so working with someone who you can trust is critical. I am honored to be that realtor for you. I am committed to answering your questions and guiding you through this process, whether it be your first home or forever home.

At the young age of 17, I helped my parents find their forever home. I loved driving around the different neighborhoods looking for “For Sale” signs.  One day in particular, I found a house that was still under construction. I walked in and noticed it had all the features that we were looking for. I jotted the agent’s info, told my parents about it and we went back to see it the very next day!  They loved it and made an offer.  Not only did I help find the home, I also helped pick out tile, flooring, lighting fixtures and cabinets. I know the importance of having a place you can feel safe, create memories, and where you are free to be you.

My passion for real estate began with my love for fashion, styling, and décor. Before becoming a realtor, I was in the eCommerce world for 19 years honing my skills around growing sales, forecast accuracy and online marketing. This background, in conjunction with my love of helping others, has led me to winning the trust and confidence of clients.

 I am a born and raised Chicagoan.  I lived in the city and north suburbs before moving to Oak Park in 1999 through 2015. I now live in Forest Park with my husband, daughter, and Schnauzer (Ollie). 

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Oak Park, River Forest, and Forest Park.  Every home is unique in its structure and setting. Each one has a story. The community is vibrant and friendly.  It has amazing schools, park districts, sports leagues, and social events throughout the year. The local businesses, health and wellness facilities, eclectic restaurants and nightlife are part of the neighborhood we call “Home”.

So, if you are looking to buy or sell in the Chicagoland area, Northern Suburbs, River Forest, Oak Park, or my home Forest Park, please contact me.

It will be a pleasure to help you find your forever home.
