I joined Realty Executives as a member of The "Energized" Team in 1999 and have been selling and renting property in the Chicagoland area ever since. I started managing property in 2005 and formed DL Property Management in 2013 to help landlords with property management.

I am an expert in listing homes for sale and knowing what it takes to get a home sold. I am known for my ability to match buyers with the perfect home for their needs, ensuring excellent service during the entire sale cycle. Working by referral I rely heavily on my relationships to foster my business.

I grew up in Garden City, New York (Long Island) and lived in the house that my father built while working for the New York Telephone Company. I learned the value of hard work & owning your own home at an early age. When I was 13 my father enlisted my brother and I to help build our summer cabin in Woodstock, CT that I subsequently bought from my father and own to this day. I graduated from Wheaton College in 1978, married Alia in 1982 bought our house in Wheaton in 1995 (Farnham) and raised our 4 daughters. We were also fortunate enough to buy a few rental properties that we still own and manage. I love to help people with their real estate needs - assisting them in making wise choices. It would be my privilege to work with you.
