About Bio
I'm a full time, full service Real Estate Broker and mortgage consultant/analyst with Re/Max Properties, the #1 real estate brokerage in the western suburbs. And my family has lived and worked here for over 60 years so yes, you could say I'm somewhat of an expert in the area. Over 40 clients each year take advantage of my unique bundle of skill sets, education and experience to either sell, buy or rent and if you will click on my resume and client testimonial pages you will see why. I know there are many nice people, sometimes even an aquaintances, that have a real estate license. But especially in these tough market times, sellers and buyers need the best agent to help them navigate this often tricky and confusing process. My advanced degrees and certifications, construction background, training in appraisal, marketing, home inspections, mortgage financing, staging, negotiating all give my clients the highest chance of having a successful, fun and hassle free real estate experience. I hope you give me a chance to earn your business as well.
