President and CEO of RE/MAX NorthCoast Realty 1987-2011
• Serving Rogers Park/Evanston & Edgewater for 30 years!
I have lived and worked in Rogers Park since 1980. I raised my daughter here. I have built my business and my reputation representing Sellers & Buyers of this Community. It is always better to list your property with an area expert so that your representative can respond with knowledge about schools, transportation, local activities and the new and established developments in both business and residential real estate in Rogers Park. I AM that person!Broker/Owner of RE/MAX NorthCoast
I started my real estate company in 1987 without ever selling a property. I have worked hard learning my business, and training and educating my sales associates to be the smartest and most ethical in the business. My agents have 24 hour access to my assistance. I often co-list or share sellers and buyers with my sales staff so that I get the opportunity to see how they work, and I get to share my expertise with them. I am very proud of my team! I was honored in 2003 as the 2003 Rogers Park Business of the Year Award Recipient. Although I accepted the award, the award truly belongs to my staff and sales associates for their ongoing support and their dedication to their clients. After 24 years of owning a successful brokerage, in March 2011, I merged my real estate office with RE/MAX Edge in Lakeview.Foreclosure & Short Sale Specialist
I have been consulting, brokering, and assisting distressed property owners in the area of foreclosures and short sales since 2006. I empathize with owners who are put into a position to have to leave their home, without the expected equity, due to financial hardship. I try to help them minimize the stress by sharing experience and knowledge, along with my team of experts, to try to assure as smooth of a transaction as possible. I have a few "tricks" up my sleeve which can benefit both Buyers and Sellers.
I have been consulting, brokering and assisting developers in converting apartment buildings to condominiums since 1993. I have developed six properties personally and two of those properties earned the Rogers Park TLC awards and also the Chicago Association of Realtors Good Neighbor Award. Five of our clients have also won awards for their developments. If you are a condominium developer, it is helpful if the Realtor you are using is knowledgeable of the process and can assist in your developments in areas beyond simple marketing.
The first property I ever listed was a 25 unit courtyard building at Leland/Manor in 1987. I learned to sell real estate from an investment point of view, taking into consideration the tax benefits and/or ramifications, the hidden equity, and return of investment on a cash on cash basis. I know what is important to you when you are considering purchasing or selling investment property. I have an extensive background in property management, leasing, and renovation of property which can benefit everyone from the small, first time investor as well as the seasoned land mogul. My specialty is multi-family in and around the Rogers Park, Edgewater, and Evanston areas.Professional Qualifications
