In 2015, after Notre Dame Law School and seven (+) years as an attorney, I went from what had once been my dream job – Associate General Counsel at a start-up – to a full-time real estate consultant.
I quickly realized it’s what I should have been doing all along.
In just three short years I’ve helped over 100 families buy, sell or rent and sold over $28M in volume.
Long before I got started in real estate, I dreamed of buying and designing my own place. Throughout my legal career, I spent countless hours watching HGTV and pouring over lifestyle blogs, but – weighed down with massive student loans – I could never afford a down payment. Or so I thought.
At the same time, in the back of my mind, I always assumed I’d meet a guy and buy a place with him, like my friends were doing. (Spoiler alert: That didn’t happen.)
In 2017, I found myself still single, still paying my landlord’s mortgage and faced with a decision: Do I keep holding out for a guy who may never come and continue putting off buying the Interior Define couch I’d had my eye on for years, or do I make a different kind of commitment?
I spent months getting extremely clear on what I wanted and envisioning what it would look like after I moved in. I had two non-negotiables: a great location in Old Town and an original 1970s kitchen. In other words, a blank slate.
When the perfect candidate popped up in the building where I was renting, I jumped on it immediately. I was my own easiest client because I knew exactly what I wanted. In the end, I spent way too much on gold cabinet pulls and I’m still trying to decide on wallpaper for an accent wall, but, if it ever feels “finished,” it will be time to move on to the next project.
Whether my clients buy a fixer upper, new construction or something in between, I love helping them envision their lives there: walking down the street to their favorite fitness studio; friends gathering around the kitchen island; and family watching football on Thanksgiving.
The homebuying process can seem overwhelming, but you don’t have to do it alone!
That’s where I come in.
Once you’ve found a space that matches your vision, my team and I will streamline the process to get you moved into a freshly cleaned condo without losing your mind. And we’ll be there to toast the champagne once you’re settled!
