Personal Background

A Native of IIlinois, Cookie has lived in Lisle most of her Life. Married to Lester since 1971 with 3 Daughters, Leslie (Brett), Shelley and Kathy and 5 Grandchildren  Jacob Henn (United States Army), Logan (13), Ashleigh (10) , Lorelei (8) and Harrison  (19 months).

Cookie worked  at Dooley Realty in Lisle as a teenager and that was the basis for her interest in Real Estate. Her Broker at the time, Alma Dooley said, " Sell Real Estate, they have not put a house on the Moon yet and everyone needs a Home!" Cookie however, wanted to be a Hair Dresser and a Mom so it took her until later and a business failure to become a Realtor. In 1986, after losing everything she became a Realtor and has never looked back.

"I don't believe in paying rent, if you can find a way to own a home, I will help you do it."
