Donna is a lifelong Chicagoan, born on the south side, raised in the western suburbs and then moving straight to the city after obtaining a BA in Economics from the University of Illinois - Champaign. Donna pursued a highly successful 30+ year career in technology, where she managed varied responsibilities in product development, marketing, negotiating and implementing sales projects worth well over $500 million, for both US and international corporate clients. Simultaneously, Donna and her husband purchased, remodeled and built properties, and have managed rental real estate for over 20 years. She has lived in several locations on the north side from Old Town to Rogers Park to North Center, each year falling more in love with Chicago and its varied neighborhoods as one of the most livable cities in the US.
In 2003, while still in technology, Donna began working as a realtor in the Hinsdale area, and found providing thorough and personal real estate service to clients produced immediately visible and deeply satisfying results. She joined Dream Town in 2013 because she sees its approach to teamwork, agent support and technology development as totally unique and cutting edge in the industry. Donna has transitioned to real estate full time in this period, and applies all her previously acquired skills to connect with clients, quickly understand their objectives, and help them buy and/or sell while managing all the details so the process is as smooth as possible.
When not hunting for the perfect property, Donna indulges her construction-geek side, enjoys cooking, gardening, traveling and music; she also supports multiple charities and museums in the Chicago area. She holds an MBA in Strategic Management from DePaul, and has a suspicion more post grad work could be in her future.
