I got my Illinois Real Estate Broker License in 2003 and opened an apartment rental agency in Chicago, pairing landlords and tenants in Lincoln Park, Lakeview and the surrounding Northside neighborhoods. Born and raised in New England, I had just moved to Chicago myself the year before. I discovered the city during my sophomore year of college, fell in love with it and immediately moved there after graduation.
A few years later, I fell in love again, this time with my husband. We left the city and moved to La Grange. He is an LT grad who grew up in La Grange. His family owned and operated La Grange Schwinn for many years and they still run Post Concrete Repair & Waterproofing Supply, Inc that started out on La Grange road in the 1970s and is now located on Archer Avenue by Midway Airport. The entrepreneurial spirit runs deep in our family!
In 2005 I sold my apartment rental agency and have worked for the past 12 years for the Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters. There I was a member advocate in the dues department and assisted our Finance Director with developer financing. We helped developers secure the financing needed for new construction projects around Chicagoland. With my real estate background I was able to bring knowledge about the lending process and an understanding of pricing strategy and market value.
Now a mother of two young children, it’s time to get back to my passion. I am one of the “new kids on the block” at Smothers Realty Group, though I am not exactly new and definitely not a kid anymore!
My 14 year professional career thus far has always been very customer service oriented and that is my strength. I enjoy making sure the people I work with have the best possible experience. Whether buying or selling a home, the process can sometimes be stressful and a lot to manage. I will always do my best to take as much of the burden off my clients as possible and be a true advocate for them during this big financial and life changing process.
