I started my real estate career in 2005 with Prudential Premier Realty, which later merged with Gagliardo Realty. I have built my business on personal referrals and pride myself on being open, honest and knowledgeable. I’m committed to staying up-to-date on the real estate business, and experienced about the Oak Park/River Forest, Chicago and surrounding communities.
My approach is straight-forward: listen to your needs & goals, then develop a plan to achieve them. I’m committed to providing my clients with the best information to make well-informed selling or purchasing decisions.
My expertise is residential real estate: condo's, townhomes, multi-unit buildings, single family homes, rehabs, and short sales to bank owned properties.
I serve on the Board of Directors, Grievance, Professional Standards and Special Events Committee for the Oak Park Area Association of Realtors.
I volunteer as a money manager for Oak Park Township Senior Service.
My family and I have lived in Oak Park since 1998. I am a life long Chicagoan. Grew up in Naperville, moved to Chicago as a young adult then Oak Park. My daughters attended the Oak Park public schools from K through 12th grade, and are currently a freshman & senior in college.
I look forward to working with you!
