About Me
Over 20 years ago, when my husband and I were ready to leave Lincoln Park and start a family in a home of our own, we quickly settled on Oak Park for its proximity to Chicago and beautiful historic homes. However, looking for the “perfect” house took about a year before we found THE one. We’ve been living joyfully there ever since, and it was an agent from Gloor Realty who had the patience and knowledge to make our dream a reality. Four years ago, it was another agent from Gloor who understood what was needed as we bought a condominium for my elderly in-laws. All the while, I had been immersing myself in Oak Park area history, attending open houses, and in fact over the years, I’ve “sold” friends on this wonderful, diverse, socially and politically engaged community, and they’ve happily moved their families here, too.

When I was ready to leave elementary school teaching, real estate was thus the natural career move for me to make, and Gloor was the ideal fit as a place to work. I thoroughly love working at a personal, family-run business, and an outstanding reputation for ethical integrity and commitment to the community.

Our children have attended preschool and the public schools here, and I’ve been an active volunteer in many of those settings. They’ve also benefitted from their participation in a variety of social service, recreational and fine arts organizations in our community, and I’m happy to share my knowledge of how this special place will be a good fit for your family, as well. As an education professional, I know intimately the interdependence of our communities’ housing stock, healthy tax base, and outstanding schools.

Remember your fondness for your first grade teacher? Well, those are the qualities you will find in me: I am friendly, enthusiastic, and used to juggling many tasks at once. I look forward to giving my attention and energy to your home buying and selling needs.
