Fast Home Sales with a Personal Touch - Every Sold Sign Tells a Story

Welcome to the world where selling your home doesn’t have to be a headache! If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the complexities of the real estate market – from uncertain market conditions and painstakingly slow processes to the fear of not getting your home’s true value – you’re not alone. These hurdles can turn the dream of selling your home into a daunting task.

That’s where I come in. Take a look at my history of past sales and see how I’ve turned each selling challenge into a success story. Leveraging my meticulous attention to detail, a skill I sharpened in my almost-pediatrician days, I tackle each aspect of the selling process with precision and care. My approach is not just about transactions; it’s about building lifelong friendships and ensuring a smooth, fast sale of your home. Let’s partner together to overcome these hurdles and celebrate your successful sale. 🏡🎉

What Sets My Sales Apart?

  1. It's All About the Details: Details make the difference when it comes to attracting offers. I identify those unique nooks and crannies in your home that buyers will fall in love with. It's not just about listing your property; it's about storytelling that turns 'For Sale' into 'Sold.'
  2. The Art of the Deal: When it comes to selling your home, you don't just want offers—you want offers you can't refuse. With negotiating as my middle name (well, metaphorically speaking), I work tirelessly to ensure you get a deal that's as impressive as your home.
  3. Beyond Closing Time: Our friendship doesn't end when the deal is sealed. From recommending local gems to attending the quirkiest Chicago street fests, I’m your go-to guide for life post-purchase or sale.

So go ahead, scroll down and take a peek at the homes that have changed hands and the lives that have been transformed. Each sale is a chapter in the broader, beautiful narrative of our community.

Delightful end-unit vintage condo a stone's throw from OPRF, Farmer's Market, pool, ice rink, green line & downtown Oak Park -- and it comes with a DEEDED parking space on-site! This sunny home has the perfect floorplan with a spacious west-facing living room with glass french doors & Juliet balcony, decorative fireplace & built-in shelves -- with space for an oversized sectional and then some! It's open at one end to the large dining room (with its own french doors & Juliet balcony), and life flows seamlessly to the open, creamy white cabinet kitchen, complete with breakfast bar & walk-in pantry (potential to add in-unit laundry here too). The primary bedroom is 10x15 so bring your king sized bedroom set, and the walk-in closet is a welcome surprise. The 2nd bedroom is set up as a guest bedroom / office but would make a great full-time bedroom, too. Last but not least, the bathroom is a nice blend of vintage + modern with a gorgeous cast iron tub, pedestal sink, & built-in storage all around. There's a cozy back deck off the kitchen as well as a shared (pet-friendly) yard. And don't worry about bad weather days -- the laundry, storage & bike racks can be accessed FROM INSIDE the building. Deeded parking space off the south alley and EZ permit parking along South Blvd for add'l cars. Wonderful, professionally managed boutique building in Oak Park's Ridgeland Historic District. Your chance to get settled in just in time for summer in this beautiful neighborhood!

*Offers Due Sat 6/19 @ 7pm* Rare find in Montclare: brick bungalow with 2nd floor in-law suite! Located on a residential block just northeast of Grand & Oak Park Ave, this well maintained home has been in the same family for decades and provides so many options and flexibility for its new owner to use it for related / multi-generational living or to reconfigure the 2nd floor into a more traditional single family layout. The 1st floor lives like a spacious bungalow with a massive 12x28 "front room" that should be formal living & dining areas, directly behind which is the eat-in kitchen (sorry, the seller is attached to the fridge and it will be going with him) - while a great space, it could use some freshening / lightening up and potentially could even be opened into the front room while you're at it. A full bath and two bedrooms complete the main floor, one of which has a tandem bonus room perfect for... office? walk-in closet? play room? You decide! The 2nd floor apartment is delightfully sunny and cozy with an eat-in kitchen at the back, living room at the front, and two bedrooms & full bath dormered in between. The basement adds an add'l 1,177 sq feet of usable space and was the scene of some wild neighborhood parties in its hey day with a retro bar and wide open rec room along with laundry, workshop, storage, and half bath (apparently there's shower plumbing roughed in but owners never completed that project). Out back you'll find a nice sized yard and detached garage with screened patio, perfect for relaxing and entertaining. Well loved, but it's time for this family to move closer to the grandkids, which means it's your opportunity! In great shape but sold as-is. Don't miss the 3D tour!
