I am a graduate of DePaul University, Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 21, I purchased my first investment property in an up and coming area of Chicago known as Bucktown. My investment property was a run down apartment building that needed a full renovation. I took on the role of general contractor and in the process learned much about plumbing, permits, patience and perseverance. After a successful completion of this project, I knew I loved the real estate industry. I became an licensed Agent and then a Broker. I joined Gerson Associates and worked in New Construction and Project Development. We designed and built apartment buildings, new construction condominiums and mixed use commercial developments. In the late 90’s, Mitchell Gerson and I designed and built a $2.5 million dollar single family home in the North Shore of Chicago. I have been in the Real Estate profession for over 25 years. I have many years experience with Commercial and Residential New Construction, Building Design, Property Development, Property Management, Sales and Rentals.
