About Me
PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE:

I started in Real Estate in 1975 as a Sales Associate with W.R. James Realtors on Madison Street in Oak Park. I led the office my first full year in Real Estate with thirty-three deals, that translated into $1,000,000 of Real Estate closed. That was a "big deal" back then.

I moved to F.C. Pilgrim in 1985. I stayed there till the family recently sold the firm to Baird & Warner. I recently joined Gloor Realty Co. to get back to a local, family run company atmosphere.

In the course of my many years in Real Estate, I have served in many capacities on the Oak Park-River Forest Board of Realtors. My proudest achievement was being elected to the Presidency of the Board. I was the first Broker Associate elected that was not a Broker/Owner of my own Company.

PHILOSOPHY:

I firmly believe that the buying and selling of Real Estate can be one of the most important and stressful times in one's life. I feel that it is the years of experience that I bring to my clients that sets me apart from the others in the field. I have negotiated with fairness and knowledge on my clients behalf through millions of dollars of transactions. I think my calmness, sense of humor and extensive network of lawyers, lenders, inspectors, etc. for clients to refer to create a confidence in the clients to proceed with assurance in their decision.

PERSONAL HISTORY:

I have lived in Oak Park with my husband and two children since 1970. We started off on Lyman Avenue and currently reside on Scoville Avenue. Our children attended Longfellow Elementary, St. Edmund, Oak Park-River Forest High School and Fenwick High School. Our daughter, husband and three sons live two blocks away. Our son, wife and four children live in LaGrange Park. They used me as their Realtor and love their homes.

I served on the Oak Park Housing Center Board, the Oak Park Development Corporation and many volunteer commissions and committees in the Village.
