More about Bridget Salela
As a 17-year resident of Naperville raising a family, I have in-depth knowledge of the local real estate market, as well as of the area’s schools, services, cultural and recreational activities. And because I appreciate that finding your “right” home may seem overwhelming, I welcome the opportunity to be a true ally when it comes to the purchase or sale of your home. When my recently promoted, Naperville Fire Department Bureau Chief, husband and I bought our first home and grew our family to 3 kids and 2 dogs, it was the best and most exciting feeling ever. I want my clients to enjoy that feeling, too.
Prior to becoming a Partner with The Ville Realty, I owned my own Personal Assistance Business. I was not only a personal assistant but a house manager, interior decorator, general contractor, promotor and helped market and plan many high-end functions. During this time, I mastered the importance of listening to my clients’ needs so I could fulfill their wants, needs, and goals with no-nonsense advice and steadfast attention to detail. My organizational, negotiating, and follow-through skills proved beneficial weather overseeing general contractors during home repairs, planning travel itineraries, or coordinating an event for several hundreds of people. I appreciated a loyal clientele thanks in part to my intuition and compassion for putting clients first.
My entrance into real estate was a natural progression from my prior experience working with clients needing assistance while they were oftentimes transitioning out of an old home and/or into a new home. As such, I am equally experienced to offer help in staging, listing, and marketing your home for selling as I am finding and showing the perfect home for you as a buyer. I have a great eye for design along with a sense of true costs when it comes to seeing past what is in front of me and being able to envision ideas for potential remodels, tear downs etc. My database of tradesman is extensive with my business being run on recommendations so I pride myself with working with the cream of the crop but also being careful that my clients are not over paying for the services that they are provided. As an assistant, my clients come first. I plan on treating each client as I would their assistant and building that relationship of keeping them in the know, being available when needed and putting myself in my client’s shoes to provide the exceptional service that has set me apart from all the rest.
