A little about me
and why I love real estate
Whenever anyone asks me what I love most about being a Chicago Realtor, my answer is simple: I love knowing that what I do adds value to my clients’ lives. It’s incredibly rewarding to help people find a property that’s both a wise investment for their hard-earned money, as well as a place to call home… a place where they can relax, create memories, and watch their family grow.
Plus, Chicago real estate is an integral part of my own story. I was born in Oak Brook to a family of real estate investors, so I’ve been involved in real estate all my life. As a college student at the University of Illinois Chicago, where I earned a BFA in Graphic Design and Photography, I gained a deeper passion for the city and learned that each corner of Chicago has its own unique nuances and vibrant energy. Add a strong work ethic into the mix — both my grandfathers emigrated to the U.S. and struggled to build a better life for their families — and it’s easy to see why I appreciate the chance to help others find their own place in this amazing city.
My early career experience adds another facet into the personalized services I provide to my clients. Before I became a Realtor, I worked as an art director for an international ad agency and as a book cover designer for a Fortune 500 company. You could say that I see every property as a book cover in that there’s exactly one chance to present a property in its best light because, as the old saying goes, people do judge a book by its cover. That’s why I invest so much time and energy into art-directing a talented team of designers who produce some of the finest marketing materials in Chicago real estate.I’m also passionate about using technology to help people find and sell homes; after all, 90% of house hunters start their search on the Internet. That’s why I’m committed to putting the latest technology to work for my clients, whether they’re looking for a home or selling their current property.After more than a decade as a Realtor, nothing makes me happier than creating a smooth, profitable, and time-efficient experience for my clients. I still get the same satisfaction every time I guide a client seamlessly through a transaction that makes their lives better. It’s an honor and a responsibility that I take seriously… and that’s why I love being a Realtor.When you’re ready to buy or sell your Chicago home, or simply want to learn more about the local real estate market, I’m here to help.
