Where is your hometown?
What is your position at Mac and how long have you been an employee?
I have been a Leasing Consultant for almost 2 years
What do you like to do in your free time?
I love traveling and finding new places to eat in the city.
Name two things you consider yourself to be good at and why?
I am really good at communication and being personable. I have always been social and easy to talk too and people tend to cling to me because of this.
What is your favorite Mac building and why?
My favorite building is the Paramour. I love this building because of its vintage/modern style. The building has the Chicago style brick stature with a very sleek and modern interior! I get so excited anytime I rent this property and our residents love it as well.
Tell us something about yourself that someone would never guess?
I am a journalist and have written for a magazine in the past and have also managed my own blog.
What is one thing on your bucket list?
To visit every country on bucket list travel list, this includes places like South Africa and Thailand. In addition, I want to one day own my own bed & breakfast in another country.
How would describe your day to day activities?
My day to day activities at MAC include lots of touring properties, communication with potential prospects and follow up. My favorite job function is touring and meeting new people. I love being one of the first interactions that people have in Chicago! I get to brag about great Hyde Park and Chicago is to people who are moving from another country or state.
What is your favorite memory of working at Mac?
I have so many, but my favorite memory has to be renting my first apartment over the phone and my second apartment to someone all the way in Turkey and us meeting for the first time when they were moving in! You feel like you’ve known them for years!
What would you like to promote or let residents/coworkers know?
Mac is really adding to the change of Hyde Park. Whether you are looking for your first apartment or a luxury unit, we have something to fit your personal style. I took a chance with being a Leasing Consultant and I love it. I say that to say that life is about taking chances, which can lead to windows of opportunity. Never be afraid to, JUST DO IT!
Nicole was my leasing agent when I was looking for my second apartment in Hyde Park. She was so incredible helpful patient. I am a very demanding person and was basically looking for a mansion with $2 and she found me the perfect apartment. I really trusted her to find me what I was looking for but she also wasn’t shy to tell me what is realist and what is not. I cannot stress enough just how comfortable I was with Nicole and how incredible she was through out my 3 month process of finding me an apartment.
I lived at the Algonquin when I lived in Chicago and loved it! The professionalism, aesthetic and amenities–MAC was all I wanted! It even included a small glimpse of the skyline on a clear night. ? My brother and sis-in-law live in MAC properties in KC, and if I lived in either city, I’d definitely stay with MAC.
I’d love for them to venture east to D.C.!
