Since 2017 I have had the privilege of serving on the DuPage County Board of Review where I am tasked with ensuring the Fair and Equitable Assessment of the County’s $145 Billion real estate tax base. I maintain the designation of Certified Illinois Assessing Officer as a member of the Illinois Property Assessment Institute. I also hold an Illinois Managing Real Estate Broker’s License and have been active for nearly 15 years, possessing extensive first-hand knowledge of both the residential and commercial real estate markets comprising Naperville Township.
I believe among the most important issues facing this office is understanding the impact of Covid-19 on real estate values, both residential and commercial. Covid is not a one-size-fits-all issue and will impact different property types in different ways, some on a temporary basis and some long term. Implementing real estate modeling tools and analytics combined with monitoring market data on a real time basis will give this office the guidance and ability to approach necessary relief on a fair and equitable basis.

Another issue facing the Assessor’s office is the ongoing proposed modifications to current taxing policies in Springfield. It is critical that this office work closely with our policy makers to ensure that proposals being considered in Springfield support responsible practices for real estate assessments and minimize, whenever possible, further burdens placed on home owners.
The Naperville Township Assessor’s office has been a leading example on the national stage for the implementation of cutting edge technology. This commitment to modernization has improved transparency, accuracy of data collection and cost savings through right-sizing staff. By continuing to focus on the implementation of new technologies and best practices, I look forward to improving upon these benefits to maximize transparency, accuracy and cost savings moving forward.
I believe paramount to transparency and accountability is community outreach to ensure that every homeowner this office comes into contact with is made aware of the current benefits they may be eligible for relative to preferential partial assessment exemptions. These exemptions include homeowner exemptions, senior exemptions and freezes, military veteran exemptions and others. Many of these exemptions do not happen “automatically” and can require the submission of forms, tax returns and affidavits to the County. It is the responsibility of this office to educate homeowners on these various forms of relief, make all necessary documentation available online and in person and encourage and assist those eligible to pursue their relief.
