I love being a Realtor®! I have been a Realtor® for over 13 years now and have enjoyed every minute of it. It is a pleasure to help people reach their goals, from first time buyers finding their first home to finding that dream home for second and third time buyers.I grew up in Brookfield, attended RBHS and have lived in LaGrange or LaGrange Park since the mid 1970s (with the exception of 2 years in Atlanta, GA). I have two grown children who live in LaGrange and LaGrange Park and two beautiful grandchildren that I am totally doting on. With my years in the area and my kids attending the local schools, I know the neighborhood.

I currently live in LaGrange Park in an old English Tudor and have done major renovation projects to it. This is the 5th home that we have owned locally; all of them needing various rehab work. I believe this helps make me a better Realtor®. I have lived through drywall dust and have an insight of what an older home can turn into, not to mention the challenges they offer. It also helps me to be aware of the stress moving can cause.

I’ll help relieve some of that stress!

“Judy and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you again for the incredible job you did for us as we searched for a new home. As you know, we spent an enormous amount of time with a lot of realtors. You were, by far, the most professional, hard-working and knowledgeable agent with whom we had the pleasure of working. We certainly will recommend you highly to all of our friends and family.”
Judy Taaffe

“Thank you for your help in locating a home for us in LaGrange. Very early in the process you really tuned into the type of house we were looking for. This was time saving for us (the trips from the city to suburbs) and almost necessary because of the spring market activity during our search. Thank you for helping us through the whole process.”
