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!
