How do you impact your clients?
We have a 100 percent client retention rate when moving people to and from the North Shore. We grew up here, graduated from New Trier, raised our families here, are local experts, and love helping clients transition into North Shore living. We utilize our lifelong North Shore knowledge and relationships to enable our clients to love where they live.
What is your best networking advice?
Our business is a referral business. When you go above and beyond for your clients, they will refer their friends, colleagues, and family.
What organizations do you enjoy contributing to?
With four Eagle Scout sons and a Girl Scout Gold and Bronze Award recipient between the two of us, the mantra of “do a good deed daily” motivates us to give back to our community and teach our children to do the same. We are both extremely involved in many community philanthropies, churches, schools, and as Neighbors of Kenilworth members.
What is your fashion style?
Our “on-the-go fashion” includes shopping locally—dresses from Bunny & Babe, clothes from Valentina, and vintage jewelry from Arch Vintage.
What advice would you give to future Power Women?
Be passionate about your goals and dreams, and work hard to achieve your aspirations.
