It is my goal to reduce the stress of selling real estate, to provide market insight and expertise, to game-plan a comprehensive marketing strategy specific to each individual property, to be a resource for other service providers that will help us overcome obstacles as they pop up through the process, and to be there for my seller all the way to the closing table and beyond.
No matter if you’re a first-time homebuyer or a seasoned investor, this is a large purchase for you, and you need someone who will be honest and look out for your best interest, and do everything he or she can to make sure that you are making the best move possible.
I've got your back! I build my business on happy clients that refer more business to me. It is my goal to make sure that you are comfortable with what you are buying, that you are getting a good value, and that you are aware of market conditions. I want to be a resource for you in regard to lenders, attorneys, inspectors, contractors, etc. I've got the team that you can count on!
I grew up in Wasco (before it became Campton Hills), otherwise known as St. Charles. If that didn’t confuse you, then you must be from the area! I have also lived in Geneva and Elburn, where I still own a home. My family and I currently reside in the Fox Valley, as do five of my six siblings and their families. My extensive knowledge and understanding of the Fox Valley area really equip me to help my clients find or sell real estate effectively. The majority of my business is in the Fox Valley area, but I often show or list property throughout Chicagoland and the far-west area.
My Previous Life:
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Communications from Western Illinois University. Soon after graduation, a friend and I started our own successful Web Design company. Running my own business demonstrated my initiative, self-motivation, and determination to succeed, even in a difficult economy.
I am a tech savvy Realtor who understands the ways of the Web, social media, and other preferred methods of communicating, which can be highly beneficial to my real estate customers. My education and previous work experience allowed me to gain the knowledge of Search Engine Optimization/Marketing, Social Media Marketing, and increased online placement.
Not Only a Member:
I am a member of the National Association of Realtors, and the Multiple Listing Service of Northern Illinois. I am a Zillow Premier Agent, and I have accounts with Trulia, Realtor.com, and LoopNet. We syndicate our properties to thousands of real estate websites.
I have consistently received sales awards from Baird & Warner for Annual Volume ($$$) and Number of Transactions. I’m one of the top agents in my office, and I continue to increase productivity year-by-year. Almost all of my stats outperform the market.
