After traveling and living in many different cities around the U.S. and Europe, Nora fell in love with Chicago while visiting the city back in 2018. Sure, the winter was a bit of a shock to her Guatemalan-blood, but she couldn’t get over the energy of the city as the weather turned and Chicago’s summer arrived: the street fests, the farmers markets, the restaurants spilling out onto the sidewalks. She was hooked (no surprise here!) and decided to make Chicago her forever home.
Prior to joining Compass, Nora - who is bilingual in English and Spanish - attended Suffolk University in Boston, MA where she earned a Business Administration degree with a double major in Global Business and Marketing. She spent the early part of her career as an experienced and deeply networked Attorney Headhunter, recruiting tier-one attorneys worldwide. Nora’s success centered around developing strong relationships and really getting to know her clients on a deeper level, which allowed her to create successful matches between both the attorneys and employers.
Her passion for helping people is what led Nora to pursue her lifelong dream of a career in Real Estate. She loved working with people to build their careers, but she wanted to support them in an even more meaningful way: helping them put down roots.
She prides herself on being a value-driven person, committed to providing her clients with the highest level of service. But what Nora loves most about Real Estate is building long lasting relationships with her clients (many who become close friends!); she believes that it is these long-term relationships that turn a neighborhood into a community and make the big city of Chicago feel a whole lot smaller.
When Nora is not finding her clients their dream home, she enjoys going to social events, playing pickleball and golf (well, learning how to play golf!), and taking long walks by the lake with her golden retriever, Brady, and her husband Nick.
