One way to measure experience is in years. But not only has Anne spent 28 years selling real estate, she knows firsthand what it’s like to do a corporate relocation, to buy/sell second vacation property, to buy distressed property, rehab, combine condos, debate between living in the city/suburbs, and receive a property tax freeze on historic property.
Anne received her real estate license in 1987, and her broker’s license the following year. In addition to a successful career selling, Anne has managed real estate offices for Coldwell Banker (Lincoln Park) and Prudential (Oak St.).
Relocation. Rehab. Invest.
Anne bought her first home in Champaign, IL while working for Procter & Gamble. Two corporate relocations later, she landed in Chicago. She and Tom have lived in the South Loop, Gold Coast, East Ravenswood before moving to their current home in Lakewood Balmoral. They have also owned vacation property in Michigan.
Anne and Tom raised their 3 children in the city. She’s experiened in private school admissions, the elementary school magnet lottery, and the selective enrollment process. Anne provides “City vs Suburb” consultations, so parents/relocating buyers can assess housing stock and school choice options as they weigh their purchase decisions.
What some of Anne’s clients are saying…
Anne worked around my wife’s work schedule to not only show her houses, but neighborhoods as well. Anne spent the time to get to know us and what we were looking for. Never did we feel like we were being a problem or a nuisance to her, even when we were asking crazy neighborhood or commuting questions.
In the end, Anne found us a great house in a great neighborhood. Through her seemingly endless contacts, she also played a huge roll in getting me my job here in Chicago. We can’t thank her enough!
I would recommend Anne to anyone. She possesses tremendous knowledge and information about Chicago’s housing market and Chicago in general. She is a true professional.Brad
I have worked with Anne since 1995 when she was managing agent for a new condominium project and I was the mortgage broker in charge of mortgage loan project approval. She was a lightning rod for getting the impossible done and I marveled at her “can do” attitude against all odds. She repeatedly amazed me with her creative solutions, new methods for efficiency, problem solving, and new ideas. I later became a real estate client, both for a property sale and purchase — including residential and commercial. She thinks ahead to what is needed and answers questions even before they are asked; all resulting in a seamless transaction.
Anne will astound you with the depth and breadth of her professional knowledge and services. And when you meet her, shake her hand and feel the radiance of her smile, you will know you are working with exactly the right real estate agent for you!Diane
When we first moved to Chicago 20 years ago, Anne took us in hand and found us the perfect house in the perfect location. She stepped us through as first time home buyers and kept all the balls in the air when several years later we became first time home sellers. That is why she is our go-to realtor now.
Not only is Anne charming and easy to get along with, she also takes the time to really listen to her clients and learns what is truly important to them. She will also take the time to explain everything to you so you never feel blindsided. She is open and honest and always has her clients best interests front and foremost.Cate
I highly recommend Anne to anyone who requires the assistance of a real estate broker whether to sell or buy a home. I did both when I engaged Anne and I could not be more pleased with the results.
Timing was of the essence; we were successful in concurrently managing a sell/ buy. Anne demonstrated the highest level of professionalism and as a veteran real estate agent she was able to meet every challenge with an answer.
Anne’s work ethic is unparalleled and her honesty and integrity are without question. Besides all that, Anne is fun to work with – her high energy and enthusiasm are contagious. From start to finish it was a joy to work with Anne.Lori
