Born and raised in the city of Chicago, I am a proud Chicago native.  I have lived in many of Chicago’s unique neighborhoods including Lincoln Square, Portage Park, Bucktown, Lincoln Park, Lakeview, and am taking that deep understanding of the city to help my clients find their dream home and neighborhood. 

My greatest asset is the ability to connect and understand my client’s needs and help them make one of the most important decisions of their lives.  My attention to detail, strong negotiation skills, and 15 years of experience in professional service has help me exceed client’s expectations and is what makes me stand out from the rest.
