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 (DuPage County) 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 (Kane County) 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.
