My name may sound familiar. I have hosted top rated shows on some of the most influential music radio stations in Chicago for the past three decades. My success as a radio personality in the third largest market in the country can be attributed to my communication skills, persistence, passion, ability to connect with people and social media prowess. All of those qualities have translated extremely well into the real estate industry and frankly make me stand out above other real estate brokers. Don't let my friendly demeanor fool you. I negotiate hard for my clients.

I graduated Central Michigan University with a major in Broadcast & Cinematic Arts and double minor of Marketing and Advertising. After relocating to Chicago I lived in Algonquin, Lake In The Hills, Hoffman Estates and Cary before moving to Oak Park with my two children in 2003. I've been the Vice President of Programming for the Percy Julian Middle School PTO and currently sit on the Oak Park River Forest High School Community Council plus manage my son's hockey team with the Chicago Jets. I'm a big proponent of giving back to the community and have been involved with numerous charities over the years including emceeing events for the American Brain Tumor Association, National Stroke Association, Susan B Komen Mother's Day Race For The Cure, Avon Walk For Breast Cancer, Oak Leyden plus numerous fundraising events for individuals fighting a terminal illness.

I would consider it an honor to help you find your next home and/or sell your current home. As a part of one of the leading brokerages in the Chicagoland area, I offer impressive advanced tools and resources plus unmatched loyalty. I invite you to contact me to discuss your next steps.
