More Information

Dreaming of a home by the lake, or a country escape? Allow me to be your guide to the Lake Life I know and love so well!

“Escape To the Lake”. That’s been what I’ve been doing for over 30 years.

Having been lucky enough to have raised my own family lakeside, with many wonderful times spent together at our beloved Lauderdale Lakes home I am able to guide you with firsthand experience in your search for the perfect lake home. As avid boaters and water-skiers we love the outdoors and everything southern WI has to offer. I know the “ins and outs” of most area lakes, both personally and professionally. I also know firsthand how precious a vacation home can be in creating lasting memories and fostering great joys with friends and family…and that’s truly what I want for all my clients. To experience the same lifestyle that we have created for our family.

I have dedicated my career almost exclusively to helping people find the lake house or country estate of their dreams, specializing in second home real estate. I also know intimately what it is like to split one’s time between an Illinois primary home (I hail from Naperville) and that place “Up North” – the home that you really can’t wait to get back to as fast as you can!

My clients tell me I am easy to get to know and that they appreciate my ability to listen. I am very patient and resourceful, and most of all, I love helping people in whatever capacity is needed.

I truly believe the perfect-fit home is out there for you if we work diligently to find it. Sometimes I will know “just the one” early on in our time together – even if it’s not officially listed, as I have a vast network of resources from my years living and working in the region. Other times, it might take longer, but I do everything I can to make our time together enjoyable and productive. I specialize in Lauderdale Lakes, Whitewater Lake and Lake Beulah, among others across three counties.

I also sell both primary home and investment properties. My sellers additionally appreciate my hard work, marketing savvy and my straightforward, energetic approach…from a detailed market analysis, to staging assistance, to professional negotiations and contract management.

To achieve your real estate dreams, there are first a lot of down-to-earth questions to be asked, decisions to be made, and facts to be checked. I will help you, knowledgeably and honestly, from start to finish, in attaining your real estate goals. My clients know they can count on me, always.

As I said at the start, I have a genuine passion for living in this fabulous area of Southeastern Wisconsin. Giving back to this great community is also important to me, and I support local charities, businesses and boards that make life here so special, especially around the Lakes. And finally, in my “spare” time, I enjoy boating, snowmobiling and, believe it or not, auto-racing - as a driver and a spectator!

In all, I am passionate about everything I do. But, truly, my greatest passion is for helping people achieve their dreams…. If I can be of assistance in making your realty dreams a reality, please contact me soon. I’d be happy to help you to ”Escape To WI”.
