As a member of the “Pattie Murray Team”, Ava began her real estate career in the challenging decade of the 80's when interest rates were 12-16%. Then in 1983 Ava took 13 years off to raise her family. In 1996 she came back and was awarded “Rookie of the Year”, and since then has steadily grown her business through referrals and hard work to become a multi-million dollar producer. Ava brings years of real estate experience, and knowledge of the Chicagoland market, to buyers and sellers at all price points. She enjoys the thrill and excitement of helping a first time homebuyer find that special home, as well as working with seasoned relocation clients buying their 5th home!
Having lived in the western suburbs her entire life Ava knows the area well and will provide all the resources and recommendations necessary for a smooth and successful transaction. Ava also has experience and knowledge of both short sales and foreclosures, and has earned her SFR (Short Sale and Foreclosure) certificate.
Ava listens carefully to the needs of her buyers, and will thoroughly research all available homes to find the perfect match to fit their lifestyle. Having sold new construction homes for several years, Ava has the experience necessary to help when choosing options, making selections, changing floor plans and negotiating new construction costs and contracts.
When working with sellers, Ava will begin by effectively pricing the home and then help owners "stage" their home to get it in market ready condition, to make it as attractive to buyers as possible. She will then use the latest marketing tools and services to customize a marketing plan to sell the home quickly, with a minimum of inconvenience.
Ava is conscientious, hard working, honest and professional. She will work with you to meet and exceed your expectations. Ava's work ethic uses the “Golden Rule”—treat others as you want to be treated, focusing 100% on the needs of her clients.
