Sylvia Jablonska, Realtor
Sylvia was born in Poland but has been a resident of Chicago and suburbs most of her life.
Coming from a family of new construction developers – her exposure to the ‘behind the scenes’ action is what initially sparked her interest in Real Estate. Sylvia obtained her Real Estate license while managing the operations of a busy Doctor’s office as an optometric practice administrator. Although she intended to use her license part-time for family and friends, she quickly fell in love with the business and pivoted into a full-time career in real estate.
In her free time, she loves spoiling all of her nieces and nephews (and her plants!), spending time with family and friends, and taking neighborhood walks with her two dogs, Emmy and Jim, and her fiancé, Brian.
