Hello, Little Miss Sunshine! Imagine waking up in and coming home to this beauty,  nestled on a quiet street in the heart of NE. Plenty of space inside and out for all your gatherings and hobbies year-round. Ample covered front porch perfect for morning coffee or afternoon lounging. Original hardwoods, windows galore streaming light from every direction, and charm oozing from each corner of this lovely home.


The large, open kitchen features wooden cabinets offering loads of storage and space for a breakfast nook. Off the kitchen lies one of the bedrooms, perfect for an office space or guest room. The main level also features a full bath, light-filled living room, and dining room with woodstove. Upstairs you’ll find a huge primary bedroom + two more lovely bedrooms and another full bathroom. From the primary bedroom window, gaze out across the street at a full lot dedicated to a native species garden and habitat.


The possibilities abound in the high-ceilinged, full-sized, partially finished lower level, which can be accessed both from inside the home as well as from an exterior entry on the north side of the house. One side of the basement features a large storage space and laundry. The other side has been finished to include a large and bright living room with cork floors, a sweet kitchenette, an extra bedroom and en-suite bath. *Please do your own due diligence on this work.* ADU potential? Multi-generational living? Maker space? It’s up to you!


Year round living continues outside in the fully-fenced backyard. The back porch features custom-designed woodwork by the owner, with more options for outdoor eating or hangin’ beneath a large covered patio. Pathways lined with luscious plants including a mulberry bush, apple trees, grapes, and strawberries amble around the space. The garage is fully functional as a garage, but would also be perfect for workshop, art studio, or play space. Additional storage units for tools and gardening are situated out of the way, along the north side of the house.


Updates include newer gas furnace (2009), electrical panel (2014), water heater, AC, woodstove (2015), newer hardwoods in primary bedroom, and some interior paint, plus basement updates. Incredible location: accustom yourself to a life of convenience on 12th, with Whole Foods, Irving Park, shopping, bars and restaurants just blocks away. Walkscore 89, bikescore 80. Come take a load off!

As your trusted guide through the buying or selling process, you can expect me to customize my services to your specific goals and preferences, much like I did for my students during my ten years as an educator. My clients’ goals vary. A couple retiring to the Big City after 30 years on 22 acres. A woman purchasing her first home independently. A couple upsizing to support a growing family. Two friends pooling their resources to make their first investment possible. A couple navigating a divorce and the sale of their home. A refugee family with limited English setting down roots in this country. Deaf investors looking to maximize profit on their flip.  A couple selling the home of their daughter who has lost her battle to cancer. A family relocating from across the country and buying sight-unseen.  These situations all require unique, dynamic, and holistic approaches. Everyone has different needs, and it is my top priority to meet my clients where they are. For me, real estate is not transactional. It is deeply personal and inevitably life-changing. While each client requires a tailored strategy, my work ethic is unwavering. With me you can always expect organization, tenacity, responsiveness, dedication, and hustle. A gatherer of resources, a communicator of all options and possible outcomes. As your advocate, I will be brutally honest so you know what to expect. A skilled negotiator, I’ll consider every angle with your dreams and goals in mind. My clients often end up feeling like family. I am honored they trust me enough to return to me as their needs change and refer me to their friends, family, and communities. What are your real estate goals and dreams? Call or text me so we can meet to discuss your vision.
