About Lara
Lara grew up in Chicago's western suburbs and has lived in almost every trendy neighborhood in the city since 2011, currently residing in Gold Coast with her two Pomskies. Given her broad experiences in Chicagoland, she has a great deal of knowledge about the neighborhoods of Chicago. At the age of 24 she bought her first condo and fell in love with the process of finding a place to call home and wants to guide others through that process. Lara's always felt that a home and its environment influence your mood, productivity, and overall quality of life.

After being in the design and marketing field, Lara decided to make a career change and switch to real estate. Real estate has always been something she's had a passion for - growing up with a mother who's an interior designer, she was constantly exposed to beautiful homes. She then joined Compass on the MVP team - one of Chicago's top Real Estate teams and has since then been helping people find a place they can call home.
