I like to joke that I’ve been in the industry since I was seven years old. I was fascinated by houses, cars, design, and the business behind it all. My mom took me to open houses on the weekends, further encouraging the hobby and passion that turned into my career.
My family has lived in the Lake Bluff and Lake Forest area for 55 years. I love serving and helping my community locally. I’m also an expert in the Naples, Florida real estate market and actually spent much of my childhood on Marco Island. I’m personally connected with the area and have the best resources and networks for expanding your dream in Illinois or Florida.
When you work with me, I take it seriously that our relationship is built on an ultimate level of trust. You’re entrusting me with a key to your home and all the intimate spheres of your life. I consider you an extension of my family because I’m involved in your life’s plans and dreams – and I care for your success.
Knowing what matters to you, I help you nail your home’s price point, get everything ready for potential buyers, and set you up for the greatest return. My background and training in design and staging, personal experience with flipping houses, and access to Compass Concierge services make prepping your home a truly easy process. I also make sure we have some fun with high-tech, high-touch marketing. And when the listing goes live, I’m ready to share it across a wide geographical area and within my personally connected and interested networks.
When you’re in the market to buy, I know that entering the process can feel like stepping onto a moving freight train. Because a house is not just the place you call home, it’s also your biggest investment – and it’s tied to the dynamics of a shifting market. I’m here to make it a smooth ride by getting you up to speed with market intel, holding you steady through the process, and backing your intuition with accurate data when it’s time to jump.
In my personal life, I’m as much about cars as I am about real estate. I collect them, restore them, and flip them. When I’m not buying and selling, you can find me playing golf or tennis with friends and clients, entertaining at home, or out on the water. It’s my goal to help you find the home you love – and build the wealth you desire – through investment in real estate.
