Throughout various aspects of my life, I have always been interested in Real Estate. Purchasing my first home before my 20th birthday when interest rates were above 9% was still better then paying rent. Moving from Franklin Park to Warrenville at a time when the interest rates were near 13%; we were glad to refinance when it dropped to 11%. After living in Warrenville for 22+ years we moved to Oswego to be close to family and my first grandchild. Living there for nearly 12 years we moved to Sugar Grove in 2016 which makes for a better commute for my husband who travels to O’Hare for work, along with positioning me to be able to meet clients easier.
In 2003 I decided to work for myself and pursue my interest in real estate after being downsized from a job in Corporate America. My background brought me skills upon entering this career, including computer programming, account reconciliation, credit and collections, international supply chain management and that of a stay-at-home mom.
