Share some of your experiences as a Chicago broker
I was first licensed as a Leasing Agent way back in 2012 and I joined Luxury Living as Broker Associate in early 2018. I was promoted to Senior Broker in April of 2019, awarded #2 top producer for all of 2020 at Luxury Living Chicago (Brokerage), and started a team at the end of 2020. I also recently gained Real Estate Negotiation Expert (RENE) designation in March of 2021.
Why do you do what you do?
I love Chicago, real estate, and helping people. Sharing my knowledge of the city that I have spent close to 30 years living in plus using the experience that I’ve gained being in the industry for almost a decade to help people navigate the process and achieve their real estate goals.
What is your favorite part of your job?
No two days are the same.
Looking at spectacular homes in all of Chicago’s unique neighborhoods is a nice perk. I’m a sucker for views.
The people. I’ve met so many interesting, smart, and kind people over the years; they help make the job fun.
What is your best experience as a broker?
It’s too hard to pick just one but all of the wonderful relationships I’ve developed are the best part of my job. So many “clients” have become great friends over the years. Getting invited to weddings and watching families and people grow over time is fun to watch and I’m grateful to be a part of it.
