Patty has lived in the Chicago area for over 25 years with her husband Jim of 34 years (who is also a Compass agent) and their children. Patty was previously in the fitness industry and loved helping people achieve their health goals. She was also CFO of a youth hockey event company that she and Jim founded and ran for 20 years.
Ten years ago she and Jim became empty nesters and moved into the city of Chicago where they could start a new chapter of their life. This change brought new opportunities for growth and reinvention. It was time to think outside of the box and re-evaluate lifetime goals. One of the areas Patty has always loved is the entertainment industry. The move to the city fired her creative juices and she began studying on-camera acting and works as a lifestyle print model and actor. In 2013 she graduated from the Second City Improvisation program. Taking it one step further, Patty has also written film reviews and conducted Red Carpet interviews for film critic and international radio host. She loves to be with people, find out what makes them tick and hopefully put a smile on their face.
Equally as interesting to Patty is the Real Estate Industry. After years of going to Open Houses as a hobby and buying and selling eight properties of her own, Patty obtained her real estate license. She feels it is the perfect marriage between her love of people and love of real estate. Finding property and selling property is a creative journey in itself. It’s a chance to help others find a place where they can achieve the goals they have set for themselves. It’s creating a lifestyle, a place that feeds your soul and a place that you can call home. In improv, you learn to be an active listener, think on the fly and the “yes and” approach. She plans to apply all of these principles to her relationships with her clients. YES, she will listen to your needs, YES she will be open-minded and think outside the box, and YES we will work with you as a team. “and Yes,” she will create world peace! (that’s for the smile!)
