I always had a passion for animals. I started working in a pet shop in So. California where I'm from. I loved the work and stayed there for a few years. I was not a college kind of girl but I worked hard and always supported myself. My mom suggested dog grooming.  I like hair and I like dogs. Great idea mom, thanks.  I checked around with respected local vets and kennels. The same woman kept coming up.  She and I hit it off and away we went. I apprenticed under her for 10 months.  That's a very long time in our industry. I was so lucky.  She found me a job when I was ready. I kept learning  so  much more  and haven't stopped learning yet.More classes, workshops, reading, demonstrations, film, seminars over the years. 

I had come to visit my sister in Oswego after I graduated and decided to stay in Illinois. I opened my own shop in 1990 after working for other grooming shops for several years.  I learned what to do and what not to do. 

My shop is open, bright and clean. You can see everything from the front door. We do every thing by hand. we use only safe and gentle handling. I have highly trained assistants that I know are compassionate and dedicated to this work. We love the dogs and cats. we get to know them as they know us. Its a happy fun place to come every day.

The Time Finder is temporary administrative and personal assistance.  I help small and independent business owners with those tasks that  seem to pile up.  This could be filing, data entry or even shredding. 

But it’s not only office work.  My clients determine what they need help with.  I’ve emptied closets and planted gardens.  I’m an extra pair of hands.

A lot of business owners don’t need full time help and can’t guarantee part time hours.  The Time Finder fills that gap.  I work with my client’s budget and schedule.

If you don’t have enough hours in the day I’ll help you find some!

Mortgage - Buying or refinancing a home will generally be one of the largest transactions you will ever make. It is important that you have a professional mortgage consultant guide you through the options that are available. My belief is that trust and confidence are the most important elements of any relationship. They are certainly the critical factors in repeat and referral business. And to me, there is no greater satisfaction than gaining referral business from previous clients. My attention to maintaining the highest ethical standard and focus on customer service has earned me many great recommendations which can be viewed at:

Every move is important. None, however, is more important to you than your next move.
Buying and Selling can be confusing. Sometimes inertia sets in deciding HOW to begin.
With so much technology at our fingertips, a consumer might think they can find out how to do just about anything by surfing the internet or watching a couple of YouTube videos.
But what if you want is advice? What if you want to ask questions and not feel like you are being "sold"? I'm like that too. Nothing turns me off quicker than the "hard sell".
Real Estate is a local experience.  What may work in one part of the country, state or in the case of the greater Chicagoland area, the town next door may have different guidelines for a real estate transaction.   What works in one place may not work in getting your home sold or help you negotiate and purchase your dream home.
If you are looking for a Realtor with experience, patience and a genuine sincerity to help you have the best real estate experience, then look no further than right here.
I will be honest with you. Clients have sometimes been resistant to advice but later on stated they appreciated what I had to say.  If it's in my clients best interest, then I will ask permission to tell you the truth.

If that is someone you would like to work with, then contact me and let's discuss your priorities.
