If you want a realtor that puts your interest first, have extensive knowledge (learned through her own tears and sweat) of real estate transaction and the mortgage process, and who is a fiercely loyal friend, you've found her!
I'm a Realtor® serving the greater Chicago area. I grew up in the Northeastern part of China, went to Peking University, got a job at a Big Four company, and later worked in different banks. If nothing else, I'm a damn good analyst! I believe in levelheaded analysis of the market, and creating strategic approach for each deal. My goal is to make the biggest bang for your buck, and save you from the headache and hassle.
A lot of my previous life was in banking, so I also know A LOT about loans, appraisals, inspections, legal aspects (I'm not an attorney though!), title, lien, foreclosure, short sale, etc.
I'm a first-generation immigrant. I came to the States about a decade ago, moved ten times throughout Chicagoland, and I used to work three jobs to make ends meet. I understand deeply the value of hard working and kindness. When I came from Communist China, I had no real concept of real estate (naturally because of the "Communism"), but I took every opportunity to learn and grew fast. Today I have my own little portfolio of real estate investments, and have helped many friends through tough transactions in which I take great pride.
Real estate is one of the biggest investments one can make in a lifetime, so you definitely want someone that's on your side, that'll guide you through the process, help you avoid costly mistakes, alleviate the burden, and make complicated issues simpler. I'm here to help.
