Steve was born and raised in Chicago, earned an undergraduate degree from DePaul University, and spent 20+ years with Dominick’s Finer Foods, working his way from after-school bagboy to Store Manager.
After Dominick’s, Steve opened his "Second Act" as a Tax Accountant. He worked at Big 4 public accounting firms serving clients such as Warner Bros in Los Angeles and BP in Chicago. Most recently Steve was in the Global Mobility Services division of KPMG, focusing on the taxation of US expatriates sent on international assignments around the world.
Steve and his wife JoAnn have been married for 30+ years and while chasing their career dreams, have moved several times, finally settling in Hinsdale with their Golden Retrievers, Salty & Nemo.
Now in his "Third Act" as a realtor, Steve loves working with first-time home-buyers. Having considerable knowledge about home repair and maintenance, he helps his clients think about a home's condition and potential objectively, and always strives to find the best fit for his clients' needs. Steve knows the best way to grow his business is referrals from happy clients.
