Personal Information

I grew up in Chicago in the Mather High School area.   After graduating from the Academy of  the Sacred Heart I moved to Coral Gables, Florida.  I graduated from the University of Miami and taught special education to special needs children in the Dade County School System for four years prior to returning to Chicago.  I received my real estate license in 1983 while I continued to privately tutor elementary students and manage property in the Lincoln Park area. In 1990,  I made the move to Buffalo Grove. I started selling real estate full-time in 1994. My strong negotiating skills, attention to detail, and total professionalism has served over 1000 families. I enjoy assisting my clients in purchasing real estate and attaining the life style they are looking for.  I am SIRVA certified and work with many executives and their families when they are moving from out of the area into Illinois. I am usually their first friend and insist they put me on their speed dial so that I can assist them in not just purchasing their home, but assisting them in finding doctors, schools, grocery stores and anything that will make them feel more comfortable in their new community.  Coldwell Banker and I will market and effectively advertise your home using today’s latest technology.  We are nation wide and offer the best  tried and true marketing plan .
