The buying and selling of homes often comes at one of life’s major crossroads: a child is born, a parent passes away, a marriage begins or ends, or a job changes.
Drawing from her experiences in life, including many years working with families and children with special needs, Jerre Cusick is especially attuned to these moments.
“It’s important to be able to listen carefully to know what people are looking for,” Jerre says. “While buying and selling real estate is first and foremost a business transaction, there is an emotional aspect to it as well.”
In 1994, she and her husband, Bill, moved with their two young children from Chicago to Oak Park. Two years later, Jerre began working as a Realtor with a focus on the Oak Park, River Forest and Forest Park communities.
The oldest of five children, Jerre grew up in the South Shore neighborhood of Chicago. After graduating from Aquinas Dominican High School, she enrolled at Loyola University Chicago. There, she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology before taking extensive graduate-level coursework in clinical psychology at the Illinois School of Professional Psychology.
In November 2011, Jerre brought her 15 years of industry experience and success to Gloor Realty. Having been involved in transactions with many of the firm’s agents, Jerre had grown increasingly impressed with the company’s caliber and reputation.
Also, like so many of her colleagues, she was attracted to the firm’s local, family-owned roots that date back to 1946.
Clients, including some who have turned to Jerre both when they buy and sell their homes, have been drawn to her industriousness, ability to listen, and commitment to serving their needs.
“I never see it as `my’ transaction—it’s all about the people I am working with and what it is best for them,” Jerre explains.
Along the way, Jerre has grown increasingly involved in a variety of community endeavors. Since 2005, she has served on the board of PING! (Providing Instruments for the Next Generation), a cause close to her heart since her husband and both of her children play multiple instruments.
In early 2012 Jerre will conclude a six-year tenure on the board of Visit Oak Park, the convention and tourism bureau for 21 west suburban communities.
Jerre’s engagement extends to the real estate field as well. For the past 10 years, she has been on the Professional Standards Committee of the Oak Park Area Association of Realtors. That role reflects her commitment to ethical behavior in the profession.
In addition, she holds more professional designations than most of her peers: ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative), GRI (Graduate, Realtor Institute), SFR (Short Sales & Foreclosure Resource) and SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist).
Most importantly, all those initials represent bottom-line value to Jerre’s clients, who benefit from the breadth and depth of her expertise.
