MY STORY

MY PASSION FOR REAL ESTATE FOUND ME AT A YOUNG AGE. I GREW UP IN DOWNTOWN CHICAGO IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT APARTMENT HOMES THROUGHOUT THE YEARS. WALK-ABILITY WAS AND IS KEY IN THAT GEOGRAPHIC AREA. I WOULD WALK TO THE BEACH OR THE NEIGHBORHOOD PARKS WITH MY FAMILY AND I WOULD STOP IN AWE OF THE HIGH-RISES, AND HOW THEY SWAYED IN THE WIND.  THE LIGHTS OF THE RETAIL S STORE-FRONTS AT NIGHT OR DURING HOLIDAYS WALKING DOWN THE MAGNIFICENT MILE WAS  MAGICAL. THE SPACES + STRUCTURES+GROUPS OF PEOPLE IT SERVED. I ONCE LIVED ON THE BORDER OF CABRINI GREEN NEIGHBORHOOD & MILLION-DOLLAR CONDOS IN THE GOLD COAST. DEVELOPMENT---NEIGHBORHOODS IN TRANSITION, GROWING, EVOLVING, AND BEING RE-CREATED AND THE IMPACT THAT HAS ON US HUMANS.

VISITING FAMILY IN NORTHERN IOWA, FARMLAND IS AT THE FOREFRONT, AND I LOOKED OUT THE WINDOW ON THOSE ROAD-TRIPS IMAGINING AND ENVISIONING WHAT THAT LAND COULD BE, WHAT INFRASTRUCTURE I WOULD CREATE, AND HOW IT COULD REACH ITS FULL POTENTIAL ---YET NEVER TAKING FOR GRANTED ITS NATURAL BEAUTY IN ITS ORIGINAL FORM. I HAVE A PASSION IN THE MISSION OF MERGING THESE TWO INSPIRATIONS. BETWEEN GAMES OF "HEY COW", AND "AIR" TUGGING ON SEMI HORNS" FOR THE TRUCK DRIVERS TO RECIPROCATE, COUNTING HOW MANY I COULD GET TO HONK BACK AT US, MY ATTENTION WAS TAKEN BACK BY THE BEAUTY OF THE LAND, THE COMMUNITIES THAT ENGULF IT, THE NEIGHBORHOODS THAT THRIVE ON IT, AND THE CULTURES OF PEOPLE THAT CALL IT HOME . 

 MOST OF ALL, MY FOUNDING BELIEF IS AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN TO OPERATE MY BUSINESS  PRACTICES WITH INTEGRITY, HONESTY, RELIABILITY, AND TRANSPARENCY.  IN ADDITION TO PROFITABILITY, MY DESIRE IS TO PARTNER WITH MY CLIENTS, VENDORS, CUSTOMERS,& INVESTORS AND BE AN EXTENSION OF THEIR TEAM.   I WILL ALWAYS HAVE THEIR BEST INTEREST IN MIND, AND WILL TREAT THEIR BUSINESS AND ITS CUSTOMERS AS IF IT IS MY OWN.  

PASSION. EXPERIENCE.OPPORTUNITY.VISION. PAY IT FORWARD. ALWAYS HAPPY TO HELP!
