I have been selling real estate since 1986 and bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to serve my clients. My vision is to be the agent of choice for those looking to sell or buy a home and the only agent clients come back to and refer others to for all their real estate needs - because I have held myself to a higher professional standard and create an atmosphere of comfort in real estate transactions and make the client my first and only priority. I am a strong negotiator and have a keen sense of what my clients desire. My "Energized" Team has been a top producing team at Realty Executives since 2009 producing $58 million annually making nearly 160 families happy each year.

In 2002 I became licensed in Real Estate Sales and my high energy and motivated approach to life is what helped me quickly rise to the top 200 agents out of 11,000+ in our association.

As part of The "Energized" Team we have been a top producing team for Realty Executives Premiere since 2009. Our team generates about $58,000,000 in sales annually, helping over 160 people make a move.

I am an expert in listing homes for sale and knowing what it takes to get a home sold. I am known for my ability to match buyers with the perfect home for their needs, ensuring excellent service during the entire sale cycle.  Working by referral I rely heavily on my relationships to foster my business. I am knowledgeable on market conditions and a strong negotiator.

Throughout my life my mission has always been to "serve others" which I have demonstrated through volunteer work and in my career as a real estate agent.

I joined The "Energized" Team at Realty Executives Premiere in 1999 as team assistant and became licensed in 2002 and have since sold and rented properties from Barrington to Plainfield, Chicago to Geneva and everywhere in-between. I have sold and managed several condos in Chicago and I own DL Property Management managing properties in Chicago and the suburbs for landlords near and far.

I am honest and work with integrity to help you through the buying or selling process to achieve your housing goals.

Accredited Staging Professional

Phone: 630-597-9316

As a Staging Professional I enjoy helping our sellers visualize their home in the eyes of a buyer and helping them make changes to make their home more appealing to today's buyers. I am pleased to say that our listings are easier to sell when the sellers follow my guidance and price the home right. The transformations have been amazing and I get to work with great people along the way.

I started with Realty Executives 20 years ago as an Administrative Assistant and got my real estate license in 2018, recently joining the Energized Team at Realty Executives bringing me full circle in my career. I work the far west and south suburbs of Chicagoland adding a farther reach for the team. I am motivated and eager to work to help my buyers and sellers make a move and make their dreams come true!
