Consistently ranked within the top 1% of city brokers, Barbara’s experience is unsurpassed. Anyone who has ever met her understands why she is so highly recognized in the industry, and it should come at no shock that she is now recognized as one of Crain’s Most Influential Residential Real Estate Brokers in Chicago. Barbara is among some of the area’s most venerable real estate sales professionals. The selection criteria for this award would be daunting to meet for most, with a required closing of $10 million in sales in 2017 with a minimum of 8 transactions, but Barbara has always been up to the challenge.
A Managing Broker, Barbara truly embodies the spirit of Dream Town, mentoring others throughout every stage of their careers. For Barbara, it’s about sharing her expertise and empowering others to succeed. Barbara believes you should be proud enough of the work you do to sign your name to it, much like an artist.

She is always thrilled to hear updates on her clients’ milestones and is grateful to be part of their lives.
Barbara truly loves her hometown of Chicago, and has spent her entire life in and around the Budlong Woods neighborhood. Her unmatched insight into Chicago’s far north neighborhoods make her a favorite of clients close to home, and her extensive knowledge has made her the go-to Realtor for Chicago’s most prominent developments. Barbara has created long-lasting partnerships with developers, collaborating with them to change the landscape of Chicago. As an independent broker, Barbara has sold more development properties in the city than any other; her most notable new construction projects include eco-friendly single-family residences and robust communities such as Edgewater Square, Edgebrook Glen, and Sauganash Glen. Her understanding of Chicago gives Barbara an edge, and her dedication has made her a star.
