I wrote the following content for the website of a Chicago real estate broker.

City Living, Family Style

Home may be sweet, but buying or selling yours can be a real challenge— especially for city families. I founded Chicago Family Realty based on the belief that “city life” and “family life” can (and should) peacefully co-exist. As a longtime resident of North Chicago and a certified Realtor® with multiple certifications, I have the resources, expertise, and passion to help my clients meet their city living goals.

Hassle-free Selling

As a Chicago parent myself, I know how difficult it can be to conquer clutter even on normal days—not to mention getting your home in “showroom” condition when it’s on the market. I’ll provide you with tips and tricks to keep rooms neat, organized, and in prime selling shape. As an experienced home staging professional, I’ll even show up early to appointments and help prepare your house for each showing. With my seasoned negotiating skills, I’ll work hard to get you the best possible price in the least possible amount of time—all while working around naptimes and play dates.

Through my affiliation with @properties, Chicago’s leading real estate brokerage firm, your listing will get maximum exposure on more than 400 websites, ensuring the chances of a quick, profitable sale.

Buy with Confidence

The north side of Chicago offers families a wealth of amenities and opportunities, from kid-friendly restaurants to scenic parks to high-quality school districts. One of the best parts of my job is helping families discover new neighborhoods and find the ones that best meet their unique needs and interests.

I truly believe that raising a family in the city can be a fun, rewarding, and character-building experience, especially when you find the perfect place to call home. As an @properties partner, I have access to hundreds of insider previews for new listings not yet on the market, so you’ll be among the first to see them.

I’ll work with you before, during, and well after the purchase of your new home, serving as your personal advisor for all aspects of Chicago city life. Whether you need help finding a lender, a painter, a library, or a handyman, I can help.

Why Chicago Family Realty?

For me, real estate isn’t just a job—it’s a delight. I love nothing more than helping families find the homes to house their dreams and get quick, lucrative offers for selling properties. I strive to offer the personalized, results-oriented attention you’ll be hard-pressed to get from bigger, commercialized agents.
