Over my 30 years involvement in Chicago real estate, I have worn many hats. After leaving the advertising/marketing industry in the 1980’s, I started my real estate career buying, renovating and selling properties within the north side of Chicago. In 1990, I founded Emerald Realty Group, a boutique real estate brokerage and property management company which successfully serviced the Lincoln Park and Lakeview areas until 2011. At which time, was merged with Conlon Real Estate Company. Within those years, I acted as proprietor of many condos and single family development projects. Conlon has since joined forces with Compass Real Estate. My true passion and enjoyment throughout my real estate career has been working with buyers and sellers in the brokerage business. Over 95% of my brokerage business is from repeat and referral clients, which speaks for itself. With the experience of selling over $200 million in sales, and the career insights obtained while acting as a managing/owner-broker, developer, general contractor, and investment property owner and manager, I provide my clients with a seasoned, fully rounded service to my clients. An educated, experienced and honest straight-talking broker is what you will get. And under these market conditions, that matters!!!! Feel free to call me for a consultation and you be pleasantly satisfied.
