"the right choice"
Thinking of buying your first home? Do you need a home that will allow you more space for a growing family? Is it time to downsize and enjoy easier living without the stress of home maintenance? Make the Right Choice!! Success with your real estate investment depends on the Realtor YOU choose to represent you.
I am a Relocation Specialist representing clients worldwide. As part of the largest real estate network in the world, I am honored to be recognized as Top 1% in sales company wide and in the Chicagoland area. I am also proud to have received the Five Star Award from Chicago Magazine for Customer Service Excellence. As part of my dedication to providing excellent customer service, I offer a FREE Home Market Analysis. The current market demands knowledge and experience – contact me!
With the use of cutting edge technology, I work with my team of professionals & experts in the field. This allows me to sell multiple listings in as little as 1 day, some even before the property goes into the Multiple Listing Service. Being seasoned & well connected, I can get those difficult listings that are still on the market SOLD. When representing buyers, I am mindful of busy schedules & am aware of the importance of efficiency & accessibility. The result is finding buyers homes that they have dreamed of their whole lives... at realistic prices with excellent financing, while making sure they are investing their money wisely. Fortunately I continue to represent buyers & sellers who have been referred by former clients. This allows me to excel in my field & gives me the honor of representing friends, friends of friends & families of people I have helped.
I've been a Realtor/Broker for more than 20 years, completing Graduate Realtors Institute (GRI) courses, earning designations, receiving multiple awards for selling my listings efficiently in corrective markets & earning various awards for High Volume Selling. Since 2003, it is my honor to specialize in Residential Real Estate with Baird & Warner.
My professional experience consists of starting a full service Real Estate School in Illinois & managing it successfully. I instructed the general public, new & experienced Real Estate associates & experienced broker managers. Subjects taught were finance, contract law, property management, brokerage, appraisal, pre-license & investment Real Estate.
Over the years, I created and managed my Real Estate School, Property Management Company/Real Estate Investment Company and a non-related business. This gave me a world of experience in many areas including successful marketing & customer service. My personal success & experience helps me be an expert in my field. It is my moral, ethical and legal obligation to guide my clients with care, obedience, honesty and all the knowledge I can share for their success. It is what I do every day. I always keep in mind I could be assisting my client with their largest investment & I take this very seriously.
Investing in people and my community is very important to me. Paying it forward includes a variety of Neighborhood Watch Programs, facilitating groups who have experienced the loss of a loved one, Boards of Directors of Homeowners Associations, Waubonsee College Child Development Center, Naperville Chamber of Commerce, Lemont Chamber of Commerce, Lemont Women's League, Dupage Womens League, Women's Shelters & High School Outreach Programs, Lemont Park Foundation & Naperville Responds for Veterans. As part of the Baird & Warner team, I have made substantial donations to various other charities. Also, a portion of each of my home sales is donated to local Chicagoland charities via the B&W Good Will Network. The Good Will Network has donated more than $2.4 million and thousands of volunteer hours to Chicagoland nonprofits.
I believe honesty, integrity, knowledge & professionalism lead to success & trust. I am grateful for my clients & the wonderful people I meet every day in my journey. Thank you.
