Co-Founder & Chief Construction Officer of UrbaneHome
An Ohio native who has called Chicago her home for the last 20+ years, Dee is a partner in the Chicago luxury development firm, Urbane Home and has lived and built homes for her family and other clients in Lakeview, Lincoln Park and Old Town, where she currently lives with her family.
Dee’s love of real estate began in the mid-1990s when she turned a frustrating experience of not finding her first home into a transformative one that would guide her course for years to come. Her first project was de-converting a 100+ year 3-unit building into a 4200+ sqft single family home in Lakeview. After lots of successes and her fair share of challenges, Dee completed her first dream home in less than 7 months. Years later, Dee would be introduced to Mario who had her personal residence under contract in 7 days.
From that point forward, Dee was hooked on real estate, pursued her broker’s license and continued renovation and new construction projects for years to come. In those years, Dee repeatedly partnered with Mario and The MG Group to sell her properties and got firsthand knowledge of the experience and competitive advantage they bring so joining the Group as a broker in 2017 was a natural next step.
Dee has a dual degree in Management Information Systems and Marketing from Miami University (Ohio) and in her spare time enjoys spending time with her family, checking out the latest restaurants in our culinary rich city and watching every bit of college football she can.
