It was such an honor to be asked if I wanted to be on the cover of Chicago Agent Magazine in December 2020. Of course I was excited to be on the cover, but I was especially thrilled when I was told that it was for the magazine's annual culture issue. At Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty and Jameson Commercial, we have always taken the topic of culture extremely seriously.
2020 was so difficult for most everyone and one of the toughest parts for me was not being able to share in the lives of our brokers and staff... in person. You’ve become my besties. Our first event, post pandemic, is going to be the biggest love fest ever. In the meantime, I’ll come to you virtually.
