Bio: I have lived on the Southside of Chicago and its suburbs all of my life! I currently reside in the Bronzeville community of Chicago. I love my neighborhood. It’s very rich in culture and history, not to mention there are a bunch of places to eat and nearby shopping centers to walk off all of the calories. I am a graduate of Northern Illinois University where I earned my master’s degree in Public Administration. That basically just means I’m addicted to saying “GO HUSKIES!” anytime someone starts talking about college sports (especially football). My path to real estate started early when my father asked me to help manage his multi-family buildings. The years of experience I gained while mowing lawns and shoveling snow (just to name a few of those managerial duties) eventually led me to own and manage my very own investments today.

Interests / Hobbies:  My interests include food, traveling with my family, financial investing, fitness training, and did I mention food? Chicago is really a one-stop shop when it comes to entertainment and activities. No matter how long you’ve been here, there’s always something new around the corner to try and experience.  

Why First Time Home Buyers?: I remember when I bought my first home and how exciting and at times nerve-wracking the process can be. I had a good real estate broker who was able to teach me a lot about what to look for when buying a home and she was also very protective of me as a person. I enjoy helping people and the general field of real estate. Choosing to be a broker for StartingPoint Realty was a no-brainer for me because of their emphasis on education and making sure that their clients wouldn’t be subject to buyer’s remorse after the closing. I thought that was rare and that I can really give my all and stand behind a company that shows that level of initiative and care.
