About Me

Sure, I'm chatty and gregarious with the people skills expected of most agents in the biz. But what sets me apart from the rest is my history.

In a past life, I graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor's degree in history and a knack for analytical research. I applied my god-given talents to a library science career at the Smithsonian Institution, and then Northwestern University. There, on the National Mall and the Evanston Lakefill, I tapped my inner techie—supplementing my analytical skills with those of geekdom. My enthusiasm coupled with my powers of analysis and technology give me an unfair advantage over the competition.

With discerning analysis, I deliver market research that my clients herald as singular. As their deal progresses, this also gives them confidence in pricing and an edge in negotiations. Perhaps this is why the lion's share of my business is unsolicited referrals and repeat clients, like this one: 

"We worked with Rachel to purchase a new condominium unit and found her to be a tireless researcher and effective negotiator on our behalf. She also successfully rented one of our rental units to excellent tenants at a rent higher than we would have asked. We'll definitely be working with her again!"  - Morris, Near North Side

[Ask me for a complete list of my client testimonials!]

Of course, my technological skills are invaluable in this electronic age of real estate—where 90% of buyers start their home search on the internet. A modern agent must know their internet audience; market to it; relate to it; and crunch the numbers to analyze the forthcoming data. This is where my 7-year information science career comes in handy.

As an added bonus to my clients, my son has schooled me in his "take no prisoners" brand of bargaining, honing my negotiation skills razor sharp. Our family stomping grounds are Edgewater and Evanston, but I enjoy professional success on any turf.  

To top it off, I'm legit! I hold an Illinois real estate license, serve as members of the Chicago Association of REALTORS® and the National Association of REALTORS®, and am proud to be a Zillow Premier Agent. Working for @properties means I have the force of Chicago's top-producing real estate firm as my tail wind.

Now enough about me, let's talk about you...

Helped me rent a home.

It was a pleasure to work with Rachel! We were relocating and we did not know this area at all! After giving her a little bit of our background and what we were hoping for she pointed us in the right direction and worked around our schedule for visits to be able to maximize our time for touring apartments! We loved working with her kind and considerate nature and wonderful knowledge of the area!  More Less

Helped me rent a Condo home in Margate Park, Chicago, IL.

Rachel is truly an amazing realtor. She has helped my husband and I find the absolutely perfect rental on multiple occasions. Since we were relocating from out of state, we needed a realtor who had extensive knowledge of the city and the outlining suburbs and Rachel did not disappoint. House hunting is not always a pleasant experience but Rachel's positive and friendly demeanor made it almost fun. When my husband and I had a challenging circumstance arise due to my employment, Rachel did not blink and worked with us to find a solution that was agreeable for all parties involved. My husband and I are only beginning our journey in the Chicago area and are thrilled to know there is a realtor that can help us find the perfect home for our family if the need were to arise.  More Less

Helped me rent a Single Family home in West Rogers Park, Chicago, IL.

Two years ago, my boyfriend and I were planning to move in together but both owned condos we couldn't sell without taking a loss. The prospect of both becoming new landlords was more than a bit daunting. Rachel's professional knowledge and friendliness really helped alleviate the stressfulness of this transition. At our first meeting, she listened carefully to our financial and location needs and timeline. In less than a month, we both had renters for our individual properties and had a new house to move into. Throughout the process, Rachel was incredibly responsive, positive, and proactive. She respected our time by only showing us houses that really met our stated needs and desires. She made what I thought would be a nightmare of a summer go very smoothly.

Two years later (today!), we are still happy renting our family home and both have the same tenants living in our condos. I regularly refer friends who are looking to lease or buy/sell to Rachel. When we are finally ready to sell our condos and buy another place, we will definitely call upon her services.
