As a full time real estate professional, my greatest satisfaction comes from helping my clients achieve their goal. Whether you’re a first-time home buyer, seeking to sell, upgrade or interested in investment property, I will be with you every step of the way.

When you're ready, email, call or text me, or click to connect with me on LinkedIn. I look forward to meeting with you and discussing your home buying and selling needs.

Professional Background

I'm a REALTOR® at Century 21 Affiliated - Hyde Park, Chicago, IL. I am excited about the new office that is located in the heart of the University of Chicago Campus.

I am eager to work with buyer, sellers, FSBO's, and investors.

Professional Interests

Once you’ve made up your mind to sell your home, you need to do your “homework” and my website is a great place to start! Getting a signed contract is a great accomplishment, but that's only half the journey.

I can provide the experience and local knowledge to guide you through the entire process, and selling your home within the ideal time frame and at the most effective price point. As the representative of your best interests, I have state-of-the-art marketing resources to showcase your home’s best assets, and help you determine what improvements will make the biggest difference.

Much of what needs to be done before the closing is the responsibility of appraisers, loan processors, attorneys, and inspectors.

Many steps between contract ratification and closing involve the cooperation of both buyer and seller, and attentive real estate professionals on both sides of the transaction will troubleshoot and keep everyone on track.

Let’s sit down and get started with your home selling experience.  Give me a call today!

Specialties

I enjoy educating people on investing in real estate and the advantages of owning real estate. It doesn't matter if my client is a first time home buyer and investor, I enjoy hearing about your goals and work towards making them a reality. Listening is an important strength that I have. Understanding the customers' needs and working with them is my commitment to them. This is critical because this is the bridge for communication and understanding.  My job entails thorough research, diligence, dedication and knowledge of the constant changing market. The frequent training on technology, real estate laws, and continuing education classes helps to stay abreast of the continually changing real estate world.  

Community Involvement

I am a mentor for an organization called BEST (Business Ellington School Team).  I mentor 6th-8th grade students at an inner city middle school. The majority of the students are from homes traditionally considered as poverty stricken. Many come from single parent or alternative guardian supervised homes. Some of the things I've introduced them to are:

  • Responsibility and goal setting
  • Financial literacy

  • Good listening and communication
  • Teamwork and good sportsmanship
