Meet JoEllen


As a Chicago REALTOR® for more than 13 years. My passion is helping my buyers and sellers with a seamless transaction.

What is most important to me is the quality of service I offer to my clients. I know that buying or selling a home can seem overwhelming and that a well-educated consumer is the best client. My goal is to bring order to the process by providing resources, support, and structure. I have been selling Real Estate for 13 years and the repeat business and large number of referrals from past clients, attest to my success in serving my clients.

For years I have worked with First Time Buyers and Move-up Buyers to help educate and support them through the process. Over the past few years I realized that there is an underserved group with the Baby Boomers and their Parents. Recognizing the roadblocks and having been through the process myself of Downsizing, I understand that this is a different type of move. Now it is time to figure out what to do to empty the houses and determine what the next chapter should look like. Let me help you navigate that transition.

To further enhance the quality of my service to senior adults, I completed the rigorous educational curriculum and competency based exam and application process to earn the prestigious Certified Senior Housing Professional (CSHP) designation from the Seniors Real Estate Institute in 2014.

I am also a Certified Real Estate Divorce Specialist. This certificate means that I mastered specialized training in the legal and tax aspects of divorce process to better serve divorcing real estate clients. I go the extra mile to give the needed attention and expertise to help guide you to the best outcome as you navigate this challenging process. I represent Buyers and Sellers with one of the largest assets in their portfolio. Having earned the Certified Real Estate Divorce Specialist certification, I possess the knowledge, skills, experience, education and training to represent family law clients as a neutral third party in complex real estate transactions.

So whether you are considering purchasing your first home or you have come to the decision that it is time to downsize, my goal is to reduce the stress and remove the hassle by offering comprehensive real estate plan and coordinated move management resources.

Contact me to discuss how I can help you with your next move!
