I have been a Madison-area resident for the last 30 years and love the myriad challenges that buying and selling real estate presents. Helping clients find what they need, with a fine detail orientation and thoroughness is my hallmark. My early years as a broadcast journalist serve me well in processing information quickly and using technology efficiently to help meet the needs of clients. Sitting on a Wisconsin Supreme Court appointed ethics committee for the last five years has further helped me to perceive issues from all angles,and honed my ability to mindfully listen to client's needs. Translating those needs into finding the perfect home is what I do best. I love this community and have deep roots here. I am also a second generation realtor. My Mom sold real estate in Chicago for twenty years, and that's where I grew up. In the 1970's, I attended the University of Illinois and graduated with a degree in broadcast journalism. Before being licensed as a realtor, I taught foreign language in both Madison and Middleton, so I'm very familiar with these area school systems. If you're thinking about buying or selling residential real estate on the West side of Madison, I'd love to meet with you and draw up a plan for moving forward. Want references? Shoot me an e-mail, and I'll happily give you the names and phone numbers of past clients you can speak to about my work ethic. There are many great values and excellent opportunities in real estate in this market. Interest rates are excellent and inventory is good. Call me today, and we'll get started right away.
