I have been a long time resident of Riverside and a Top Producing Real Estate Broker® in the western suburbs for the last several years.   Starting at Smothers Realty Group in 2005, I quickly acquired satisfied buyers, repeat buyers and referrals because of my dedicated full service business motto. Prior to this, I played a significant role in helping with design and layout on projects at Gentile Construction. Real estate complements my background and gives me the opportunity to use the many tools and skills I learned throughout my time in the construction business. My experience with design and construction helps buyers see the bigger picture and envision the hidden potential of a home. Having spent most of my life in the near west suburbs, I am extremely familiar with the areas.  I started working on Cathy Bier’s team (#1 agent in LaGrange area) in 2012.    I am there from the start of the home search to the close and I give my full attention to helping buyers find the perfect home.

“Lisa was simply terrific to work with.  She’s very personable, patient, and incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of the western suburbs.  As first time suburban buyers, this made our process much easier.  She was very attentive to what we were looking for which made our process efficient and effective.  We would highly recommend her to both first time home buyers and repeat buyers.”

“We absolutely loved working with Lisa on the search for our first home. She always gave us great insight and honesty, which we appreciated!  No matter how small the question, she was happy to answer it-even if she had to explain things a few different ways! Hopefully, we won’t need to move anytime soon, but we know who we would call if we do!”

“Given our desired home features/location and budget ours became a prolonged search process.  During this time, Lisa was consistently a complete professional bringing energy, enthusiasm, patience and thoughtful advice to each meeting.   When we found our home, she was a valuable partner in negotiation and the closing process.  Ultimately, we would not hesitate to recommend Lisa’s work or engage her on another transaction.”
