“I Love Helping Home Sellers and Buyers”
I would like to tell you more about myself and why I believe I am the best choice you can make in selecting your Real Estate Agent.
I have seen every economic climate (remember 18% interest rates? I do). Although this difficult market seems baffling to you, I have been through markets that favor buyers one year and sellers the next and I have learned how to read the trends and work with them. I am not claiming to have a crystal ball - it takes study and evaluation to determine home values and that is one of my strengths.
When you are an informed buyer or seller, you'll make the best decisions for the most important purchase or sale in your lifetime. That's why my goal is to keep you informed on trends in the marketplace using the latest statistics in your local area combined with my own observations. These days all clients do an extensive research online about their dream home and I am here to help interpret that information. You know when you have walked into the house that feels like home to you - it is my job to help you look at all the other aspects to determine if it is the right step for your future. We will look at value in terms of recent sales in the area, location, neighborhood, schools, taxes, upkeep, remodeling costs and all the many factors that go into this important decision. Also, the number one important thing, whether the market rises or falls after you purchase, is knowing that you love where you live!
“A Little About Me”
My husband and I moved to Northbrook in 1985 from Lincoln Park and I continued my real estate career after this transition. We raised our two children here and now they are thriving adults who come home now and then for laundry and love. I love the North Shore and am happy to talk to buyers about the wonderful amenities the entire area offers. Additionally, while my husband and I are not currently pet owners we love dogs and are happy to pet sit for our friends anytime. I also love to exercise, I am an avid reader, a serious gardener and enjoy watching Chicago sports with my husband - Go Bears!
