Personal Background

I have been an Illinois-Licensed Broker, REALTOR® since August 2009, so I have truly learned this business from the ground up. Coming into this business in the midst of a declining economy, with foreclosures and short sales dominating the market place, was a real education.  As a result, I am well-educated and well-versed in both regular sales and distressed sales.  I have obtained the "Short Sales & Foreclosure Resource" (SFR) designation and have closed many short sales, helping sellers to avoid foreclosure while "getting out from under" their under-water mortgages.

Prior to becoming a full-time REALTOR, I owned and operated a Chicago-area online wedding directory for 13 years.  My online directory was ranked #1 for various wedding-related searches on several search engines for several years, so I know the kind of dedication to service and hard work that it takes to make a business successful.  Success begins with quality service!

I look forward to working with you, whether your are buying or selling, regular or distressed sale. Please feel free to call me with any questions you may have, 815-582-7656.
