I was born and raised in the North Suburbs of Chicago in Evanston and Wilmette. After graduating from New Trier High School back in the 90's I went off to Miami University in Ohio where I obtained my BA in Mass Communications and a BS in Political Science.
I started in the Real Estate Business with Coldwell Banker in the winter of 2003 and within 2 months made my first sale and was runner up for Rookie of the year in the office with $5.5 million in total sales. Since then I have been involved in over 100 transactions and growing!
After 4 years with the big company. I decided it was time to go on my own. New technologies are changing the marketplace and the large traditional corporate firms are way behind the times. We are entering an interesting time in the Chicago Real Estate market where new rules are being written everyday. As the internet has made access to the information so accessible, the role of the Real Estate agent needs to adopt to survive. I see this change coming and Kale Realty is ready!!
I specialize in First Time home buyers and new Chicago transfers making the jump to home ownership. I understand the fears and uncertainty of the move. Choosing the right place to live with little remorse is tough as Chicago is so extensive! There are a lot of neighborhoods and condos to choose from and it can be quite overwhelming for someone new to the world of Real Estate.
I consider myself more as a consular in the process rather then a salesman. I help you discover new parts of the city and when we do find "The One" I help get the best possible price.

This is the reason I started my own company. While working at the large firm I had countless clients tell me they would love to hire me as their agent but simply could not afford to pay the 5%-6% commission that we had to charge. I was powerless and ended up recommending them to various Flat Fee MLS services. My clients would sign up with these companies but be totally turned off by the level of customer service and the lack of market place knowledge.
I decided right then it was about time for a change. I wanted to open a firm that offered unsurpassed levels of service throughout the entire transaction from List to Close, along with Chicago market knowledge and tips on how to really sell city property. From that simple principal Kale Realty Flat Fee plus was born.
I would love the opportunity to hear from you so please drop me a line.
