Born and raised in California, in 2013 I did the unthinkable to some – I packed my bags and migrated to the Windy City. True, I gave up beautiful scenery and terrific weather, but I’ve never looked back. I LOVE exploring Chicago, have geared myself up for its four seasons (sometimes more than one in a single day!) and proudly call this great city home.
So, what drew me east? And why are you reading this story? Here’s the abridged version:
I’ve always been fascinated with real estate. As a kid, I wandered construction sites, awed as homes materialized out of mere parts and pieces. Not suited to construction (I’m all thumbs!), I majored in business and finance in college, becoming a mortgage broker after graduation. If I couldn’t build people’s homes, I could still play a part in their American Dreams while continuing to fuel my fascination with real estate. And then… the Mortgage Meltdown. That ultimately led to my career shift into higher education operations and a position with a Chicago-based university. It was a good gig, but when the chance to join the leadership team at an Illinois-based real estate education company arose, I jumped at it!
Seeing others change their lives by working in the dynamic real estate field while helping home buyers and sellers made me want “some of that.” So, I earned my Brokers license, and here I am – a Real Estate Consultant at North Clybourn Group!
Combining my passion for helping people with my love of real estate, I truly have the best of both worlds. And by partnering with NCG and me, you win too. You deserve the ultimate real estate experience, and that’s what we offer. Whether you’re buying your first home or selling your tenth, I can’t wait to help you make it the enjoyable and exciting experience it should be. We won’t settle for anything but extraordinary and neither should you!
