My primary goal in life is to ensure that the complex process of buying or selling a home goes as smoothly as possible for my clients. The simple truth about my success is that I love what I do for a living. There is no better feeling than seeing happy clients on closing day. The success I have enjoyed over the years in real estate stems from my total commitment to delivering outstanding customer service. That commitment has made me the top producing agent in KoenigRubloff's Northbrook office both in listings and in sales in 2011.
It is so rewarding to have helped my clients find the perfect house or have a smooth sale of their residence. It is what I love about this job! Most of my business comes from referrals from previous clients. I consider this a tremendous compliment.
For over 17 years I have been helping people buy and sell homes in Northbrook, Northfield, Deerfield, Glenview, and all over the northern suburbs of Chicago. My knowledge of the market is extensive. Each town and neighborhood has its own market dynamics, driven by multiple factors of supply and demand for that particular area. In today's real estate market it is critical to work with an agent who fully understands the market. If you are selling a home you want to price your home correctly in order to maximize the often competing elements of price and market time. If you are buying a home you need an agent who can assist you in making the best decision possible. My reputation in the industry is such that other agents seek out my advice on pricing.
The challenging market we face today also requires that sellers make sure to market their home in the best light possible. That often requires staging the home and it is a service that I provide my clients. My prior experience in the home accessories business gave me an appreciation for interior design and a collection of lamps, furniture, flowers and other accessories to help spruce up a home when needed.
Most of my clients find me smart, hard working and amiable. I always try to make the process of buying and selling not only easy, but also fun. A home is more than an investment; it is where you experience all of the joys of your life with your family. I try to make the process a joyful one for my clients. It is my job to worry about the details and I take that responsibility very earnestly.
I am a lifelong resident of Chicago's northern suburbs. I grew up in Northfield and attended New Trier High School. I earned a B.A. in Economics from Northwestern University. I am married with two grown children and have lived in Northbrook for 31 years.
