Buying or selling your home is a huge decision! The home you buy or sell today can impact you for the next 5,10,15+ years.

So you want to make sure you’re making the right decisions for now and down the road. That’s why it’s so important to hire a Realtor who has experience in marketing, finance, sales and negotiations.

Prior to becoming a Realtor in 2004, I was a senior marketing executive specializing in strategic planning and marketing communications for major corporations. I was ready for a change and starting investing in real estate & got my license. My analytical nature, market knowledge, creative marketing and sales strategies, which helped my business clients prosper, now help my real estate clients succeed. I am also certified as an Accredited Distressed Property Representative helping buyers & sellers with short sales and foreclosures.

My goal is to really understand your situation and work with you to find the best solution for you.

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 believe knowledge is key to your success and I will help you use timely information wisely so you can make the best decision for you. I am in constant communication with you 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 have an MBA in Marketing from Loyola University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing & Finance from Marquette University.

I am also accredited in short sales and foreclosures (ADPR)

I joined Charles Rutenberg Realty (CRR) because it’s a technology driven real estate company; ranked number 1 in real estate transactions in 2017 and has over 900 real estate agents in the Chicago area. It’s also the fastest growing realty company in the Chicago area.

Charles Rutenberg Realty strives to provide its Realtors with innovative tools so I can make sure you and our prospective buyers have access to information in real time 24/7. And when I list your home for sale, I create a multi-media 24/7 marketing plan so buyers will see your home when and where they are looking for homes.
