A name you can trust

A Realtor From the Area

Whether you are looking to rent, buy, or sell, I will guide you through the process with ease.  I help first-time homebuyers become real estate experts.  Furthermore, I know not only the real estate markets of the southwest suburbs, I know the cities, towns, neighborhoods, schools, and people who call this area home.  I live in Plainfield/Joliet and grew up in Lockport/Homer Glen.  After graduating from Lockport Township High School, I attended the University of Illinois but always remained informed of news and markets of my hometown and surrounding areas.  After earning a bachelor’s degree in History and Secondary Education, a master’s degree in Curriculum, Technology, & Education Reform, and a master's degree in Educational Leadership, I have the skills and experience to help find whatever information you need in your home buying or selling process.

Working for You

I offer a personalized and differentiated experience to meet your individual real estate needs.  As an experienced educator, instructional coach, and mentor, I work with both students and adults to overcome challenges and master content.  I am passionate about educating sellers and buyers to help make a potentially overwhelming process into an easy to understand and exciting experience.  I am your greatest advocate and will make sure you have all the information to make the best decisions while buying or selling your home.  I can help you understand all there is to know about the process or you can choose to simply have me take care of everything as you sit back, relax, and wait my call with an offer, but I ensure you will be completely satisfied with your experience.

Buying or selling a home is the largest financial transaction you will make; I will make sure that you are confident and comfortable with the process and promise you will get the best deal possible.

Questions Welcome!

I am patient, understanding, personable and recognize that you may have questions. Do not hesitate to contact me.  I am available to assist in any way possible with no pressure on you.  Even if you are months away from buying or selling, I encourage you to call or email with any questions you may have so you can start on the right track; I promise I will earn your business whenever the time is right for you.
