Area Information

Live in the wonderful northwest suburbs of Chicago, IL

 

What a Great Place To Live! I fell in love with the area... 

It was a business trip that brought Vicki to Chicago for the first time in 1990 --and the people she met here made her stay permanently. "The sense of family here made me feel at home immediately," she says. As summer turned to fall, Vicki marveled at the beautiful colors. And as she experienced her first winter, she realized how festive the holidays could be. "Having snow on the ground makes it feel much more like Christmas," she says.

Even though Vicki has experienced many more change of seasons over the years, her love for this area hasn't changed. The excitement of nearby Chicago, the neighborhoods where people really know their neighbors, and the Midwest's work ethic have all been embraced by her --and put to excellent use in her real estate work.

I would love to share my area with you. If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment, please call me at 847-274-1533 or email me. You can count on Vic to get back to you quick.
