Buying or selling real estate is an important and often emotional experience. My goal is to make the process as pleasant and smooth as possible.
It was 1986 that I became a licensed Realtor. After completing educational requirements established by the National Association of Realtors I was conferred with the designation GRI (Graduate, Realtors Institute). In 1993 I received my CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) designation. CRS is the symbol of excellence in residential real estate.
I grew up on Addison Street in Chicago and have lived in the near west suburbs for forty nine years. One of my favorite local causes is Housing Forward where I have served as a volunteer for several years.
There have been many changes since I started in the business of real estate. Buyers and Sellers are much more knowledgeable. However, I feel that now the need of a real estate agent is more important than ever before. I specialize in residential real estate serving the Oak Park, River Forest, Elmwood Park and surrounding areas.
