My interest in helping people of all backgrounds started at a young age. I grew up in a tight knit, small town in Indiana where everyone knew each other and then went to high school in Long Island. Living in New York expanded my perspective, emboldened my hustle, inspired me to see the world, and laid the foundation for my eventual move to Chicago -- a perfect combination of my midwestern roots and the energy of a big city.
Prior to real estate, I worked in strategy consulting within the financial industry utilizing data, technology, and knowledge to help clients make informed decisions. I bring that same approach and energy in residential real estate, empowering my clients with the facts and figures they need while providing advice that puts their best interest first and foremost.
Being a real estate advisor is like matchmaking. I truly enjoy helping my clients understand their best options and then move from one chapter in life to their next. Whether they are buying their first home or downsizing, there is always a bit of magic that comes when we get to the closing table. I am honored to play a critical role in their journey and take great pride in making the process seamless, positive, and exciting!
I joined Engel & Völkers Chicago because the culture is unmatched and the service unparalleled. I first learned of the company years ago while traveling in Monaco. Their beautiful storefront caught my attention; I had not seen a real estate company that made shopping for homes feel so beautiful and luxurious. At the time, I was unaware that Engel & Völkers was a worldwide brand with a consistent experience at every single location. Now Engel & Völkers is setting a new standard for service and quality in Chicago, and I am thrilled to be a part of it.
I am grateful for the opportunity to live in a world class city, and passionate about giving back to it. My goal is to use my gifts to bless others, particularly those who have faced adversity but continue to strive for greatness. I serve on the board of an organization that helps provide Chicago Public School students with the resources they need for success. In addition, I tutor second grade students at an elementary school in Bronzeville and mentor first generation high school seniors who aspire to attend college. Serving others – both in real estate and in the community -- provides balance and enriches my life.
