In my early career, I worked in market/media research for an advertising agency. In the evenings I attended Loyola University to earn my MBA in Marketing. I switched to Account Management, Strategy & Planning developing communications programs for small and Fortune 500 companies.

In 2004, I was ready for a change and my husband and I starting investing in real estate & I got my real estate license. My analytical nature, drive to understand people & markets, and creative marketing and sales strategies now help my real estate clients love where they live and create wealth.

They say real state is all about location, location, location. As your Realtor I am all about service, service, service. My goal is to really listen and understand your needs and desires so we can work together to find the best solution for you. Along the way, I want to make sure you are informed, supported and well guided. I believe knowledge is key to your success and I will help you use timely information wisely so you can make the best decision. I am readily available to answer questions, provide updates and make sure everything is going smoothly.

To quote a client, “On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest, Dorie is much more than a 10!” “ Her strategic marketing and communication skills combined with her practical real estate experience and commitment to her clients’ success make her uniquely qualified to represent real estate buyers, sellers, investors and developers.”

I specialize in residential sales and investing in Chicago and the northern suburbs. I am a member of the Chicago Association of Realtors, Illinois Association of Realtors and National Association of Realtors. I am also accredited in short sales and foreclosures (ADPR).

Over the last 20+ years I’ve lived in Lincoln Park, DePaul, North Center, Ravenswood Manor and Irving Park. I enjoy living in the city and my knowledge of Chicago neighborhoods, sales activity & market trends greatly benefits my clients.

I joined Charles Rutenberg Realty (CRR) because it’s a technology driven real estate company; ranks in the top 5 in real estate transactions and has over 800 real estate agents in the Chicago area.

Charles Rutenberg Realty strives to provide its Realtors with the latest technology to make sure my Buyers & Sellers succeed. When we work together to sell your home, I create a unique 5 step multi-media marketing plan so your home stands out to buyers 24/7 when and where they are looking for homes.
