About Me

Your choice of a REALTOR is critical in any Real Estate decision.  I would like to take this opportunity to highlight my experience and services.  I am a lifelong Illinois resident living in the Western Suburbs of Chicago for over 20 years.  I have been  servicing the real estate needs of the Chicagoland area for over 19 years.  I have been a REALTOR since 2000.  I worked for Coldwell Banker in Wheaton from 2000-2003.  After that I opened my own Real Estate Company and Title Company:  DuKane Realty and DuKane Title LLC in which I was Broker-Owner and Managing Broker from 2003-2006 for 3 offices located in Warrenville, McHenry and Rockford.  In 2006 I was hired to work for American Invsco in Chicago as Managing Broker for their condo conversion and brokerage projects in Chicago. I worked for American Invsco until 2009 until I opened my next Real Estate company, Urban Aire Realty.  I have worked as Managing Broker/Owner for Urban Aire Realty from 2009 to present.  


     I have an Associate in Science (A.S.), Bachelor of Science (B.S.) and a Master of Science in Education (M.S. Ed.).  I am a member of the Chicago Association of Realtors, Illinois Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors.   I earned my Graduate Realtor Institute, GRI, designation from the Illinois Association of Realtors in 2003, my Certified Residential Specialist designation, CRS, from the Council of Residential Specialists in 2004.  In 2008 I achieved #18 in production for the Nation's leading condo converter/developer at the time, American Invsco.  I earned my Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource certification, SFR, from the National Association of Realtors in 2012.  I have received the Chicago Association of Realtors "Top Producer Award" every year from 2010 to 2018.  I have closed over 900 Real Estate transactions.  Let my experience work for you!!

     When it comes to service, my philosophy is that no stone is left unturned, no question is left unanswered, no concern left without a remedy.  I am proud of my relationship with my clients and I continue to strive to be of greater use to them on a daily basis.  I put their questions and concerns as my number one priority! 


     I look forward to servicing all of your Real Estate needs and being the only REALTOR you will ever need!
