First memory of Chicago?

 

My dad and I took a trip down to Chicago from Wisconsin when I was 12. It was magical. My dads girlfriend had an east facing view from 111 E Chestnut and we watched the fireworks from her window. That was the moment I knew CHICAGO would be in the cards for me. 

 

How long have you been in Real Estate?

 

Since 2009, so going on 10 years. I studied Real Estate Finance in school. 

 


What's your favorite part about what you do?

Everything. It’s seriously a lifestyle. I literally wouldn’t be able to have any other career. 

What do you love most about Chicago?

The people. Chicago gets really down to earth people who are just amazingly talented, yet it’s a total Midwest mentality. 

 

What are your interests outside of work?

Wow, a lot. Working out is my life; I swim, workout at EBC, horseback ride, go to Barry’s and play volleyball. Charity; I’m on a couple non for profit boards and love donating time to volunteer. Culture; I’m obsessed with dance and theater. We have some amazing talent here in Chicago.
