"Doreen was amazing!! Not only did she help us find the home we were looking for, but she then helped us through a treacherous loan process. We chose a lender we came to regret because of their complete incompetence (DO NOT USE AFN!!). We ended up switching lenders and using someone Doreen recommended and trusted. From that point on everything was smooth sailing (thank you Ben Cohen!). Doreen helped us through it all. She was in contact with the us, the lawyers, and the lenders. She went above and beyond for us. This was my first time buying a home and I'm so glad we had her support throughout the whole process."

"Doreen did a great job getting us across the finish line with our condo purchase. I would definitely work with her again (and recommend her to others)"

"Doreen was excellent to work with during my wife and myself apartment search. She was knowledgeable of the property that we had personally shown interest. We were very pleased with Doreen."

"Doreen has exceptional taste, a sophisticated style and a keen sense for what drives today's modern consumer. She combines these rare sensibilites with an understanding of how to work within large organizations (like the City of New York) and get things done despite the seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Woking with Doreen is fun, exciting and productive and I look forward to many future collaborations."

About Doreen

Understanding that the purchase or sale of a home is one of the most financially and emotionally significant decisions in a person's life. Doreen truly values the role she plays in helping her clients achieve their goals. From first-time buyers to seasoned sellers and investors, clients can trust that Doreen will help them navigate what is often a complex real estate market and make the process as seamless and stress-free as possible. Doreen grew up in New Jersey and credits her love of all things real estate to her family, who owned a real estate agency.

She says "I grew up sitting at the dinner table hearing my mom and dad talk about real estate. I think I understood ‘price per square foot' before I could tie my shoes." Her clients cite her unique combination of passion, savvy and resourcefulness.

Doreen received her Bachelor's degree from Syracuse University in English and says "I think my educational background benefits my clients because I am constantly in pursuit of knowledge and information."

After having a taste of life in New York City and San Francisco, Doreen now calls Chicago home, opting for the Midwest's unique down-to-earth blend of the East and West coasts. She lives in North Center with her husband, two kids, cat, and dog. When she's not running her business and her house, Doreen's big hobby is interior design. She says "My phone is basically a haven for interior design apps and furniture stores."

Doreen is ready to listen to your needs and help you every step of the way. She says "My job isn't 9-5. I'm always ready to help a client, that includes after the sale. If you need a plumber, I know one."
