I am very much spellbound at Christmastime. This is how I've always been. It's the music, the lights, the scent of my favorite Frasier Fir candle. And I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the gifts -- there is no better feeling than finding the perfect present for someone on my list.

For a moment, I want you to swoon over this year's MSC Christmas cards. I'm a little bit obsessed with them, and today, I have to bid them farewell at the post office. I spent many pajama-clad hours trying to make my messy handwriting appear intentionally artsy. I tried -- really, I did.

Real estate, I’ve learned, is a lot like life. There are good days and bad days, ups and downs, successes and failures. In one moment, I can be absolutely certain a contract will come together and sail through to closing -- but the next, it all falls apart....

Someday, I could picture myself in Roscoe Village. It feels greener there, with tree-lined streets and parks galore. My newest listing is on Barry Avenue, located in a very unique building built in 1886. Of course, my favorite part is the turret -- vintage meets medieval.
