Writer on real estate from any angle

I've enjoyed spending the last 10 and a half months sharing the news and features of residential real estate here on ChicagoNow. Coming from a background in commercial real estate, I've found the two worlds are very different, although both very intersting and constantly changing especially in times of recession.

Some of my favorite stories have included showings of new buildings or renovated space, coverage of celebrities homes and Chicago's loss of the 2016 Olympics.Homes really do affect so many aspects of our lives and the news we're interested in. My opinions of the market have changed every week. I've also enjoyed blogging and some of the feedback I've gotten from my readers.

Recently, I've been offered an expansion of my role at my full-time job as the Chicago reporter for Bisnow, the internet business meda corporation based in Washington, D.C. I currently cover commercial real estate there, and will soon also be writing about non-profit and trade associations for the publication's national Associations Bisnow.

I plan to continue commenting on ChicagoNow when possible, and I hope, if you're interested, you continue to follow whoever takes over my spot here. Thanks so much for your support and opinions!
