Finding a Passion for Real Estate
I discovered my passion for real estate at a young age, younger than most agents. I took my first real estate class at age 20, while attending college in pursuit of a psychology degree. My plan was to do real estate part time, while also working in the psychology field. But after one year in the real estate business, I realized it was my true calling. I didn’t want to do anything else. So here I am, an experienced real estate broker who also knows a thing or two about the psychology of the sale.
Specializing in Short Sales and Foreclosures
Distressed properties, including short sales and foreclosures, are a good investment opportunity for buyers because they’re often undervalued. But many people don’t know how to find and purchase such properties. That’s where I come in. My firm specializes in finding undervalued real estate for Chicago-area home buyers and investors. So whether you’re buying an investment property, or a home to live in, I can help you get the most value for your money.
Helping First-Time Home Buyers Succeed
First-time home buyers generally need more guidance than “veteran” buyers. That’s only natural. After all, buying a home is a major investment. I specialize in helping first-time buyers successfully navigate the real estate process. If you’re a first-time buyer in the Chicago area, and you want to enjoy a smooth and hassle-free home buying experience, please give me a call. I’ll work closely with you every step of the way, from house hunting to closing.
Understanding the Local Market
The Chicagoland real estate market has changed dramatically over the last few years. When choosing a real estate professional, you need someone who understands the ins and outs of the current market. At a minimum, your agent should understand local home price trends, supply and demand, and how to find value in the current real estate market. I am such an agent. I have the experience, the market knowledge, and the resources to help you achieve your goals.
Please contact me with any questions you have. I look forward to helping you!
