I believe that Real Estate is a personal business – these are memories, history, success and disappointments for each client that we encounter. I have built my real estate business one client at a time and truly believe that each and every new, referral or repeat client is an opportunity to take my business and what I offer my clients to the next level. Every client’s needs are different, every deal is unique, and I pride myself on ensuring that each client knows that I have gone above and beyond to help them reach their goals.
My path to the real estate industry has been not without its curves and forks in the road. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering with a focus on Structures from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. My early career began working for a large consulting engineering firm downtown Chicago designing bridges and warming shelters on the Metra Southwest Service line. As my family began to grow, my husband and I decided that both of us working downtown was not ideal and I took a position with the Village of Barrington as their Project Manager/Village Engineer. There I was responsible for managing and overseeing the annual road construction programs as well as review all of the Village’s construction permit applications. My real estate career began after the birth of my third child and this is where I have been ever since. I love this industry and the challenge that it provides. Real Estate is strategy, compassion and problem solving all rolled up into one unique and exciting package.
Originally from Michigan, I have fallen in love with the Chicago area and am very familiar with the Northwest Suburbs. My husband and I, along with my three children, reside in the Palatine area where my kids are heavily involved with various sports and activities.
