No matter how you feel about this past year, I have some good news to share with you from my small corner of the world: I’m honored to have helped 50 families find new homes in the Chicagoland area in 2016.
Here’s a fun collage that includes a photo of every single one:
Thanks to the hard work and talent of my team and partners (special thanks to MK Construction), our Chicagoland neighbors are now enjoying these beautiful spaces. Maybe some still have a holiday wreath on the front door. Perhaps others are hosting a New Year’s Eve party this weekend—I’d guess at least a few of the wine fridges are getting some use. And I’d like to hope that, at least in some way, these folks’ years have been a little bit brighter knowing that the rooms and yards and front porches pictured above are theirs to call home. It’s why I love my job, and why I look forward to continuing to help more people find a piece of Chicago to call theirs in 2017.
Cheers to all of you who support me in this work—and to anyone looking for a new home in 2017, that’s what I’m here for. Happy New Year!
