About Kate

Kate has consistently been a top producer since her real estate career began in 2006. She has been named a top 1% Broker by the Chicago Association of Realtors every year since 2009. She has also sold high-end luxury, new construction condos for a private residential developer at the start of her career.

Kate is a Chicago Neighborhoods expert, focusing on Chicagoland suburbs and neighborhoods such as Lakeview, Lincoln Park, Wicker Park, Bucktown, Logan Square, West Loop, River North, River West, Streeterville, Uptown, Andersonville, Lincoln Square, and Roscoe Village. Her thirst for knowledge has made her extremely well versed on the Chicago market.

Kate's business expanded to the short sale market in 2008. Being able to provide a service like no other, Kate has successfully closed over 300 short sales, helping people through what can be a very stressful time.

Personal referrals continue to be Kate's main source of business, and she takes her commitment to her clients seriously. With a proven record for negotiation and a drive to succeed, Kate has consistently sold her listings in under average market time, netting her clients the highest possible price. Kate listens to her buyers' needs and wants; and then finds them their dream home, all the while making the process straightforward and fun. Kate is a conscientious team player who aggressively works on behalf of her clients, always in the spirit of a win-win for all parties.

Kate graduated with her Master's degree from the University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign. She began her career in elementary education, teaching for five years. Kate is actively involved in supporting the Lakeview Food Pantry, as well as Edge Alliance, local charities in Chicago.
