Location: Chicago, IL
The Real Estate Field has various options to be explored. In 1991,I worked as a real estate assistant for an agent at Century 21. Working as an apprentice jump started my initial love for building structures. As a child working along side my father,a decorator,I enjoyed watching him reconstruct properties & make them beautiful again. The ability real estate has to be renewed continuously is wonderful.

In 1996,I decidedthis would be a career that I would enjoy. I discovered Property Management in 1998,and managed a luxury high-rise. The property was distressed and required a full overhaul. Initially the primary focus was to structure new office systems,lease up a property with a 70% occupancy rate, Rehab units as they vacated, and clean up delinquency/evictions for property.

One of the properties I contracted with was Wexenthaller Realty Management.I enjoyed managing & directing the leasing department in marketing, product knowledge and discovering ways to improve all daily aspects of daily operations. Wexenthaller noticed my hard work & submitted me for a Camme award with the Chicago Apartment Association.

In November of 2007, I was presented award for Vintage Leasing Consultant. From 2007 to present I have assisted various private and large property management firms inleasing up vacant units and set up aggressive marketing and "smart" office systems for simplicity. I have received several letters of compliment form clients I have serviced.

Presently I run my own Real Estate Brokerage. I cover consulting investments and overseeing completion, traditional sales and property management.

I am not your "hype" get quick fast rental services. I believe in quality over quantity! I want your business and referral's for a lifetime and providing substandard service doesn't align with my business goals!

I look forward to gaining your business!

Don't Be Fooled

  • When selling, do not put your home address in your ad.
  • To avoid scams, buy and sell with people you can meet locally, in person.
  • When meeting with someone you don't know, meet in a public place. If that's not possible, have a buddy with you. Also, carry a cell phone; if you feel unsafe, you can call a trusted friend, and stay on the line.
  • Never give out financial or private information like account numbers, PayPal login, or social security number.
  • If an offer sounds too good to be true, it is. Walk away!
