About Me

I have lived in the Chicago area my entire life and can’t imaging a better place to live!  I was born in Chicago and spent the first 14 years of my life in the West Town neighborhood and was fortunate to attend Walt Disney Magnet school.  After acceptance into Lane Technical High School my family relocated to Schiller Park where I lived for the following 12 years before moving to Schaumburg where my husband and I rented out first apartment together.  In 1999 we purchase our first home in Lake in the Hills and have not left this area since!  In 2002 we purchased our current home in Carpentersville where we still reside.  My husband and I have been married for 21 years and have four beautiful children.  Our children attend D300 schools and we could not be happier!  I am a full time Realtor licensed since 1994 and am extremely passionate about representing my clients.  I love what I do!  I have experienced every type of market over the years and each has its benefits and challenges.  I strive to give back to my community and lead two girl scout troops and sit on the committee for local boy scout Troop 368.  All four of our children are active scouts.  Our oldest is a Life scout working towards his Eagle rank, our younger son is a First Class boy scout and our daughters are Brownie and Daisy girl scouts.

“I became fascinated with homeownership at a very early age, around seven years old. Growing up in a poor, inner-city Chicago neighborhood, most everyone rented their places to live, including my very young mother. Having a backyard that was not just cement, but an actual lawn to play on was a big deal. If someone owned their home, they were considered well off. I would see real estate signs in front of homes and could not understand why my mother could not just go and buy a nice house for us to live in. The realities of economics took over as I became older, but my desire to help families achieve homeownership is instilled in my very soul. I truly love this profession!” says Tammy.
