Grace comes to Dream Town with a passion for real estate and a love for Chicago and its people. Grace is originally from Poland, is bilingual in Polish and English, and has lived in various Chicago areas including Lincoln Square, Wrigleyville and currently in Lakeview.
Grace has a degree in nursing assistance and many years of experience in medical office management for prominent surgeons on the North Shore, but after a number of years in the medical office field, she knew it was time to change. Grace decided to take a leap of faith and pursue her longtime passion in real estate and become a realtor. Prior to getting her license, she worked in leasing and property management in the Wrigleyville, Lakeview, and North Center areas for a successful real estate investor.
The added value Grace brings is her ability to envision how a house can become your dream home, especially after having directed her most recent townhome renovation in the Lakeview area.
After raising her two children in the suburbs with her husband, she found herself moving back to the city she loves. Making a major move has given her a sense of belonging in the community and an immense appreciation of the value of being a homeowner once again. For that reason, Grace has a genuine passion for helping people find their dream home. After having been involved in several of her own real estate transactions, she has come to understand the emotional complexity in buying or selling a home and the importance of putting clients' needs above everything else.
While finding and purchasing a home is one of the most important decisions individuals make in their life, Grace has always believed the importance to maintain a daily sense of humor and keeping a positive attitude while focusing on all the details of a real estate transaction. She is consistently caring, honest, loyal and dedicated to her profession. Grace loves her job and is prepared to represent you!
Her desire to help people also translates into community outreach. For a number of years, she has volunteered at Highland Park Hospital. She also prepares meals for a soup kitchen in the Evanston area, a place where her son and daughter have actively volunteered as well.
When she's not working, you can find her biking along the lakefront or taking walks around the city. Grace's love for the diverse culture and energy cannot be measured. In her spare time, she is also passionate about the arts and reading. She enjoys trying new restaurants, coffee shops, and of course delicious European pastries-ask her for recommendations! You can also find her rooting for da Bears and donning a jersey on game day.
Dream Town is truly a dream that gives her an opportunity to be the best she can to help others and to build long term relationships with buyers and sellers in every price range. She is enthusiastic, extremely energetic and determined to achieve the highest level of commitment, professionalism and expertise as quoted by Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm."
Home buying can be a terrifying ordeal. The choices to make, time pressing in, can cause a person to lose their focus and make poor choices regarding potential home purchases. When we began working with Grace, we had no idea what to expect. She expanded our search horizons, opening our eyes to properties that we did not even know were within our reach, and steered us away from properties and choices that were potentially disastrous. Grace really worked hard for us. When we needed more information, or were looking for something else in a home, she found what we were looking for, gave us options that helped us really zero in on the best home for us, and helped us negotiate a price that we did not think was possible. Without being hyperbolic at all, without her help, we would not have found the home we are living in now, and we would not have been as happy. She is truly an amazing realtor who can open your eyes to things you didn't even realize were there. Paul Tzirides and Joanna Stanielun
