In the spring of 1985 my husband and I moved our young family to Arlington Heights. Having raised our two children here and utilizing all Arlington Heights and surrounding communities have to offer, I felt I was well versed in helping others with putting down roots here in the Northwest suburbs. I was very active in PTA at Olive-Mary Stitt Elementary School and at which time I met Sue Duchek (broker,owner of PFR). After obtaining my real estate license I joined Picket Fence Realty in the spring of 1998. I have been working in every aspect of buying and the selling of real estate. My training has involved hands on training in the area of appraising from Paul & Sue Duchek, who had been licensed appraisers until 9/04. I have successfully completed classes for a Brokers certification and part one for GRI (buyers) certification. I came to Picket Fence Realty because of the personal and home town feel that we give each and everyone of our clients. Picket Fence Realty has grown since 1997 by making a presence in the northwest suburbs and community commitment and I'm proud to be a part of that success. I hope this gives you some indication of my commitment to you, to help you make your home search and/or move a pleasant one.
