2690 E Main St
I was born in Pittsboro, Indiana-famous only as the home of Jeff Gordon,-moved to Cincinnati at the age of 10 and then to the Chicago area at age 16 where I have called home ever since. My life-long love of treasure hunting, better known as antiquing and bargain shopping, was a perfect fit for the real estate industry. I have implemented my " love of the hunt" and used my "negotiation skills" to help my buyers and sellers achieve their desired goals for the best price possible.
My Committment To You
The most important quality for you to look for in a realtor is TRUST. My pledge to you is to adhere, with deep conviction, to the realtor "Code of Ethics", providing every client with honest, knowledgeable, and dedicated service. You can set YOUR goals, and know that I will help you achieve them in the professional and timely manner you deserve.
I am proud to say that if you could ask my clients what they felt was one of my strengths, most of them would agree that it is COMMUNICATION. One of my sellers recently called just to say thank you for being a communicator. They were unaccustomed to having an agent, who kept in contact, keeping them informed as to area listings and sales, market trends, interest rates, information on whatever could impact the sale or purchase of their home.
I know that the internet is where most buyers and sellers begin their education process and it's a great place to get information. However, when the time comes along to buy or sell, it's your real estate professional who will provide the in-depth knowledge and personal service to GET THE JOB DONE! I know the selection process is a difficult one, but I would be honored to receive your trust and be YOUR agent.
