Welcome to my Website


My 30+ years real estate experience includes mortgage loan processing, originating, managing and being the liaison between the president of a large mortgage company and their branch offices. This role included resolving disputes that arose in the marketplace between mortgage loan officers and their clients. I became a licensed real estate agent in 2001 and have been on a real estate team, managed a real estate office and trained.  In 2003, I became the Director of Professional Standards for the Chicago Association of REALTORS® and worked there 8 years.  I enjoyed this time of my life in that I learned valuable tools on dispute resolution and training.

Personal Background

I have lived the Chicagoland area for the majority of my life and previously ran a mortgage company in Maryland.

I enjoy gardening and working with women's groups.

In any spare time I have,  I enjoy gardening.

Professional Background

I have loved real estate since the age of 5 and use to play in new construction homes.  I love the smell of a new home.

I am very fortunate in that my professional background includes both a  mortgage banking and real estate background. 

I began my interest in real setae as a 16 year old working part time at a Century 21 office.  I find it funny that I would end up back at a Century 21 franchise later in my life.  Earlier in my career, I processed mortgage loans, originated mortgage loans and eventually managed a real estate company.

I then went into the Compliance arena in Mortgages and later in Real Estate by becoming the Director of Professional Standards at  the then largest board in our area.  It was during that time that I honed my skills as a trainer, public speaker and course writer.
