Gina is a lifetime resident of Will County and a Graduate of Lockport Township High School. She is married and the mother of two daughters and lived in Crest Hill, IL unitl December of 2019.  Gina and her husband moved to Kentucky to be closer to her daughters and other family.   Being a self starter, Gina has started many things and earned some valuable experience in the process.
One of her best assets to clients is her negotiating skills that allows her sellers to realize on average 97% of their asking price, Buyers only pay on average 88% of asking price. "I was a born negotiator. I am the middle child between two brothers who were always at odds with each other. My friends call me the Voice of Reason and I don't mind that definition of me. It's just part of my character and another way that I can help my clients" 

Gina with her husband has personal experience in renovating an older home in Joliet's Historical Cathedral area,  taking 6 plus years  to complete and increasing the value by 58%.  Having knowledge of New and Old homes is invaluable when it comes to determining true value in a property.  Using this knowledge, Gina helps buyers and Sellers determine the types of updates that are needed to increase value, as well as functionality of a home.  This is a very important aspect when looking to buy or sell any home, but especially if you are planning to repair or make upgrades.  Gina's  forthright and honest approach gives her clients confidence in knowing that she is looking out for thier best interests at all times, even if it isn't what they want to hear.  Gina's approach is personalized to each of her clients needs. 
Thorough and comprehensive research and knowledge of an area is an integral part of an Accurate Comparative Market Analysis and without it you are only seeing a small part of the picture.  It should also be updated on a regular basis to track what is happening in your particular market and make adjustments to price when necessary.

As an ePRO Realtor® Gina uses her advanced computer skills and the latest technology to capitalize on those buyers coming to the internet first to find a home.  The more exposure your property has on the Internet the more likely you will get it sold. 
Gina has been a licensed Real Estate agent since January 2002 and a licensed Real Estate Broker since July 2004. Her sales experience is extensive with over 12 years experience in Retail Management and 2+ years working for residential home developers in Will County.
