I have been in one form of real estate or another as soon as I left college. My first taste of a Realtor's life was watching my Mother serve her clients as an agent in St. Charles, my hometown, while I was growing up.
My real estate career started in residential property management in the Schaumburg and then Aurora areas. From there I made the leap into new home sales and sold new construction in the cities of Shorewood, Ottawa, Aurora, Oswego and Elgin. I even met and married my husband in 2005 while working for a home builder (he is a Superintendent), so life at our house revolved around the new construction industry. Like many, the recession in 2008 brought about changes in our lives and careers, but on the other side I saw a thriving market beginning and decided to go back into real estate, only this time on the existing end. I am so glad I did! I could not be happier assisting buyers and sellers through the process and forging new relationships. I love what I do and could never see myself doing anything else.
