With a passion for real estate and compassion for others, I have been successfully listing and selling homes in Chicago and the suburbs since 1983. As a life-long resident of Park Ridge and a second generation REALTOR®, I learned about the real estate business from my father. He taught and demonstrated the values I live by; integrity, commitment, honesty and persistence. Those values, combined with my dedication to professionalism, and the desire to help others, have afforded me the opportunity to work with many wonderful people.
As your REALTOR®, your satisfaction is my number one priority. Forming a partnership to ensure you have a positive and successful experience is of the utmost importance to me. I have 34 years of experience, a strong work ethic and positive attitude. My analytical personality, attention to detail, strong communication skills, and infectious enthusiasm drive me to achieve the goals we set together. I would consider it a privilege to guide you through that process to a smooth and successful closing.
In 2015, I was named a member of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ Leading Edge Society. I belong to the National Association of REALTOR®s, the Illinois Association of REALTOR®s and the REALTOR® Association of Northwest Chicago.
When I'm not working with clients, I enjoy helping friends and neighbors with interior decorating and landscape design, and spending time with my family.
A walk everywhere location, this delightful English Tudor has tons of charm, and a sweet front porch entry to greet family and friends. You'll love its quaintness and character while appreciating large rooms in the 2-story addition. The huge family room has space for everyone with pretty views of a charming yard and built-in custom entertainment center. Adjoining the family room is a nice maple kitchen with plenty of cabinets, pullout drawers, and granite counters. The separate dining room is complete with a custom buffet providing additional storage and serving space for special dining; and where you can enjoy a cozy wood burning fire on winter days. And wait until you see the king-size master bedroom with 15 feet of custom closets! Wow! A 2nd floor "bonus" room opens to the Master BR (but is not tandem) and is great for an office/study/nursery, OR 3rd BEDROOM! Each room has its own separate entry. Enjoy the comfort of hot water heat (boiler 2010) and central air! Flood control installed 2010. Lovely fenced yard. Garage is extra wide and deep with alley access. Walk to Centennial Park, pool, Metra Train, Uptown, Carpenter Elementary & Maine South HS. Bus for Emerson Middle School is only a few houses away. 1 block to Commuter bus. Minutes to major Expressways and O'Hare Airport too! C-h-a-r-m with a Capital "SEE!" Please exclude family room and bonus rm/3rd BR room drapes.
