After our company, National Sunrise Realty, closed in 2002, I joined RE/MAX Suburban in Arlington Heights. My first full year as a Re/Max associate I was awarded membership in the "100% Club", a pretty elite group of Re/Max top producers!
I completed courses and earned the GRI designation ... Graduate Realtor Institute in 2003 to keep well informed about residential real estate.
