Jane joined the real estate profession full time six years ago with a finely honed passion for real estate, entering the industry with over twenty-five years of personal real estate investment experience. Her primary focus has been investing in student housing on university campuses.
Jane became Managing Director of Colfax Realty and quickly became the leading sales agent of the Colfax’s Realty Chicago’s division. Her knowledge of real estate for both investors and home buyers earned her the reputation of being able to rapidly profile buyer’s needs and locate homes that met their specifications. She realized from her own experiences buying a home is serious business and approached each client with sensitivity, a thorough understanding of their needs and limitations, a willingness to educate them about the home buying process. Always providing each client and a wealth of knowledge about the neighborhoods and properties they were going to be shown.
She didn’t limit herself to just sales. She actively embraced the rental market in an attempt to garner as much information about neighborhoods renters targeted, why they sought out these neighborhoods and what each was seeking in their new place. This “research” enabled Jane to pinpoint the best areas for her investors with whom she was working as well as understand what type of property would rent most quickly.

She is certified as a Certified Residential Property Manager and extremely dedicated to continuing to stay updated on the economics and political markers that influence Chicago real estate market.
