Where do you work?  All over Illinois, including the following counties:  Cook, McHenry, Kane, Lake & DuPage.

Do you ever close?  NO!!  In fact, I continue to work right through all holidays, including Thanksgiving & Christmas time.  For example, I had 2 home closings in December of 2017.

Where have you worked recently?  I sold a home in Palatine & helped a buyer in Gurnee.  I just sold 2 homes in Algonquin in a month!  In December of 2017, based on the top 100 Realtors, I was the #7 Realtor in Palatine!!  And I sold 2 homes in North Aurora & Batavia in 2019; all before Summer!

What Associations do you belong to?  Here are just a few:  National Association of Realtors, Illinois Association of Realtors, Realtor.com, & Heartland Realtor Organization.  I currently serve on the Public Relations Committee at Heartland Realtor Organization.

What is the best way to reach you?  You may call, text or email me anytime:  847-650-9847.  [email protected]  You may also message me on Facebook.

How are you successful at Selling Homes?  My company & I are VERY aggressive with impressive digital marketing across all social network platforms.  In addition, I also advertise for my clients on my personal social networks.  I use only the BEST luxury photography, drone video & virtual tours.  My Open Houses are very-well attended & typically attract 15-30 groups of visitors.  I advertise some homes in “Homes and Land” magazine, at no charge to my clients.  My FREE home staging & FREE home warranties have also closed several deals!  

What is a Broker’s Tour?  A Broker’s Tour is an “Open House” for other Realtors.  I find that Broker’s tours are one of the best ways to find the perfect buyer.  I always cater lunches & distribute Starbucks gift cards at my Broker’s tours, so they are VERY well-attended!

What is a CMA?  A CMA is a Comparative Market Analysis, which I provide to all of my clients at no charge.  This is a very detailed report which shows how your home compares to similar homes in your area; usually within 1 mile of your home.  The report is used as an aid in determining your list price & can also give you home improvement & staging ideas.

What is a Buyer’s Tour?  A Buyer’s Tour is a detailed report I provide with pictures of all the homes we will view together!  It’s a great resource for buyers to have, since it’s easy to forget details of all the homes that you visit on your home purchasing journey.

Are you active in the Community?  YES!!!  I sponsor pet adoptions, children’s sports teams, recycling events & a lot more!  Stay tuned to my website & Facebook page for an event near you.  If you have a sponsorship suggestion, please let me know!
