From Condos to Castles, I Help People Buy and Sell Homes

About me

Business Philosophy

Susan takes great pride in the work that she does and strives to deliver blue ribbon customer service.  She treats every customer as if they were going to live right next door to her.  97% of Susan's business comes from referral. The greatest compliment she can receive is the referral of your family and friends.

Background and Qualifications

Susan has twenty plus years of experience in the real estate industry and has mastered the art of contract negotiations,  gained while working as a Residential Paralegal for some of the top developers in Illinois. She is driven by the challenge of helping her clients achieve their real estate goals, assisting them with her careful and dedicated approach to each transaction.

She has worked with new home developments as well as existing homes in single family, townhome and condominium communities. On the buying side, she listens intently to the needs of her clients and carefully selects each property search to meet those needs. She has helped clients in finding and purchasing property from castles to condos throughout Chicago’s Northwest Suburbs.

On the selling side, she works actively with her clients to develop a comprehensive strategic marketing plan for each property including open houses, broker tours, as well as utilizing many aspects of the internet and online marketing advertising.

Some of you may know Susan from the closing on your home with Kennedy Homes, Kimball Hill Homes, or Zale Homes. When she's not serving her clients, she's active in her community supporting her family at local sporting events and being an active Chamber of Commerce member. She is a volunteer with the WINGS (We In Need Gain Strength) Program that provides aide and safe housing to battered women and their children.
