As a 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.

Home Selling


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 knowledge to guide you through the entire process of 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.

The Buying Process

Buying a home is an involved process and requires the guidance of a trained professional. To assist you in understanding the buying process, I can provide you with answers to questions you may have.  I am committed to developing a lasting and trustworthy relationship with my buyers as I guide them along their path to their dream homes.

To start understanding the buying process today, give me a call at (312) 907-9185. Let's set up a meeting at your earliest convenience and get you into your new home.

Serving Veterans and their Familes

Every real estate agent has a responsibility to provide the best homebuying experience and resources available to his or her clients. Did You Serve?  As a Veteran, you are eligible for many benefits earned through your service, among them is the advantages of the VA Home Loan program. It's my privilege to educate you on these homebuying benefits and to help make those benefits accessible and attainable


Did You Serve? Homebuying Benefits for Veterans

No Down Payment Required

For many, the biggest obstacle to buying a home is saving up for the costly down payment. With the VA Loan, homebuyers are not required to put any money down.

Lower Monthly Payments

Because the VA provides a financial guaranty on each VA Loan, lending institutions carry less risk and don’t require private mortgage insurance which can save hundreds every month.

Easier to Qualify

The rigors of military service can often do a number on a person's credit report. More than 80 percent of Veterans and service members using a VA Loan wouldn't qualify for conventional financing, but the flexible qualification standards of the VA Home Loan program gives those who have served a path in which to purchase a home.

Your Relocation Specialist

If you find yourself in a situation that is causing you to relocate, it can be overwhelming.  Having to relocate, whatever the reason, takes an experienced real estate professional that listens, can provide resources to help facilitate the move, has excellent communication skills and is focused on the job. 

When you hire me, you are hiring a “team” of professionals ready to assist you in a smooth transition to your new home.  Not only will I assist you with the purchase, sale or rental of your current residence, I will help to coordinate all aspects of the relocation experience.

The first step is to set up a meeting to discuss your relocation timeline.  Once we speak, I will provide you with the necessary information to make sure everything goes smoothly.  Schools, Drivers Licenses, Medical Facilities, Utilities, etc., I will assist you from beginning to end. And, though CENTURY 21®, I can connect you to exclusive client discount programs with Avis, Budget Trucks, Choice Hotels, PODS, Lowe’s Home Improvement, Move Included, Smart Move and more.. 

It doesn’t matter where you are moving from or to.  I can assist in the sale and purchase of your home, either personally or through one of the 103,000 Century 21 Agents across the globe.
