Kate received her Master’s degree in Social Work from Loyola University and worked with the homeless in Chicago. Helping them to move in to their own apartments after being on the streets and in shelters was extremely rewarding. One of the most exciting parts was assisting in creatively furnishing and decorating their new homes on a minimal budget.
After moving to Peoria, she continued her work with those in need, but began her real estate career as well. She received her Home Staging Expert certification and also began purchasing and rehabbing rental properties. She currently owns and manages eleven rental properties and joined Mari Halliday’s team to further pursue her interest in local real estate and affordable home staging.
