I am a lifelong resident of Lake Forest and Lake Bluff. I have raised 3 children in the Lake Forest Schools, after attending Lake Forest Country Day School and Woodlands Academy myself. I am an active volunteer having served on the Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital Women’s Board, The Allendale Shelter Club, and as a Trustee for the Village of Lake Bluff, and am currently President of Lake Forest Garden Club. I enjoy the West, having attended the University of Utah, and recently managed a 6,000 acre cattle ranch and agri-businesss in Wyoming, where I oversaw the wind down and sale of the property that my family held for 50 years. I am an avid sportsman, a love I share with my children and husband. I have enjoyed practicing Real Estate in Lake Forest since 1991.

"Marina and Andy (Proximity Partners) did an outstanding job supporting selling our parents' home. They helped us navigate a changing and dynamic market with up to date information. They were always responsive for any type of question and went above and beyond."
"Marina and her associate, Andy, are attentive and professional. They have years of experience as realtors, a thorough knowledge of Lake Forest and Lake Bluff real estate, and an in-depth understanding of the communities. We have used Marina and Andy to buy, rent, and sell in Lake Forest and highly recommend them."
"We had a wonderful experience working with Andy on the sale of our house. The Lake Forest market was a difficult one at best and Andy helped us navigate those waters successfully. He was professional, personable, effective and efficient. I would work with Andy again or recommend him to anyone else without hesitation."
