"We were looking for a house outside of Chicago after my husband moved there for a job and I stayed behind with our kids. This made the house hunting pretty challenging, especially in this market. Staci really understood what we were looking for and was also great with our kids, which made things so much easier. She didn't push or rush us and was completely realistic about what we could expect. I don't think we could've done it without her. " - Dorota

"Staci has demonstrated professionalism and creativity throughout the years of renting out and the final sale of our apartment. She was always readily available to fix any unexpected issues and managed the property without our presence. Staci keeps an open line of communication and she is on top of anything that comes up, reflecting how knowledgable she is of the Chicago real estate market. Staci is trustworthy, creative, a great negotiator and well-connected; she possesses all the qualities one should want when choosing a real estate agent." - Petra

"Staci was very responsive and helpful in getting us into our new home. She aided greatly in our final selection, following about a dozen property tours. She has a deep working knowledge of the market, it's trends, and she really helped us separate our 'must-haves' from our 'wants'. We took her recommendations on a lender, inspector, and legal counsel, and every one of them was excellent. She was instrumental in helping us navigate the bidding process as well. I'd highly recommend her to anyone at all looking to buy or find a home in Chicago. Especially first-time buyers like us. Thanks, Staci!" - Emily

"Staci was awesome and a huge help with my move to Chicago. She knew an incredible amount about each neighborhood and asked questions during each showing that had never crossed my mind. She made sure that each property had everything I was looking for and was overall just a joy to be around. I would highly recommend her to anyone." - Elle

"Staci was always available, responded quickly to our questions, supplied documents in a timely manner with appropriate explanations, making our search process as easy and smooth as possible. Staci listened to our very specific needs and expertly guided us through a difficult move. She's personable and friendly and professional." - Barbara

"Staci is responsive, attentive, and knowledgeable about the Chicago area. She listened to the details that I wanted in a new home and she asked the right questions to fill in the gaps and provided me with a customized list of homes. Staci connected me with other experts who made my transition from offer to closing as smooth as possible. She always remained in communication with me, so I was aware of our progress, deadlines, and anything that I was responsible for doing to secure my new home. Above all else, Staci was honest with me throughout the process and empowered me to make the final decisions on my own." - Eric

About Staci
Buying or selling a home is stressful, so it’s essential to have someone you trust, with experience and knowledge to help navigate the process and make it as seamless as possible from start to finish. Having grown up in the northern suburbs, lived in the city for 20+ years, and worked in the northwest, southwest and south outskirts of Chicago for decades, Staci is your ultimate partner and resource. She knows the housing markets and school systems in both Chicago and surrounding areas and works with renters, buyers, and sellers to achieve their unique goals. 
Staci specializes in assisting first-time buyers, as well as people relocating to the Chicagoland area domestically or internationally. In addition to her Illinois real estate license, which she obtained in April 2015, she earned the prestigious ABR (Accredited Buyer’s Representative) and SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist) designations to enhance her services and expertise. Staci also worked in new construction, owned a condo she eventually rented, rehabbed and sold, and served on her condo board for many years, affording her keen insight about many areas of real estate.
With a background in social work and special education, Staci excels at the arts of listening, communication, problem-solving, and negotiating. Prior to real estate, she worked as a school social worker and special education administrator for 20 years. Remaining patient, calm, and in command in tense, demanding situations is her forte. So is her ability to help her clients determine what’s most important when making decisions regarding their home purchase or sale.
Raised in Des Plaines, Staci lived in Lincoln Park, Lakeview, and Logan Square after moving to Chicago when she completed graduate school. She received a B.A. in Psychology and Human Development from the University of Kansas, then went on to earn two Master’s degrees – one in Social Work from University of Illinois at Chicago, and the other in Educational Leadership from Chicago State University. Staci is also a licensed clinical social worker.
Outside of real estate, Staci sits on the Board of Esperanza Community Services and volunteers at Gilda’s Club of Chicago. In her free time, she enjoys Pilates, strength training, cooking/baking, reading, traveling, and time with loved ones including her dog Wrigley.
