The morning started off with boatload of notes congratulating me as I celebrate 7 years of being a Realtor®. Seven year itch? No, I ain’t got none of that. What I do have is a LOT of gratitude. I won’t go over the entire list of things I’m grateful for, it’s simply too long.

I do want to take a moment to thank my family and friends for supporting, encouraging, motivating, and celebrating with me throughout. Thank you to my friends in the industry: no one who is not in the business believes me when I say I get some of my best support (and referrals!) from my “competitors”. To the A.R.E. Partners' brokers with whom I’ve had the honor of helping develop their business and watching their growth: I love being your cheerleader! The mirror has been a great and true friend. There’s nothing like giving yourself a good talking to!

Thank you to my clients for your business and your trust. I truly appreciate being able to help you buy and sell EVERYTHING: single family homes and condos, multi-family properties, land development opportunities, gas stations, strip malls, retail and office; and in area throughout Northern Illinois and, most recently, NW Indiana! It's been a whirlwind 7 years with so may different opportunities and so much growth!

I was recently interviewed and asked what advice I would give to a newcomer in the industry; it’s the same advice I still remind myself of: “Strive to be brave, not perfect.”

Thank you for reading this far! I’d love to hear how you are doing. Feel free to drop me a line anytime.

Have a great day!
