Christie is a native Chicagoan who could never imagine living someplace else. She moved away briefly for high school when her family relocated to central Illinois, but she quickly returned to attend Loyola University Chicago. After spending many years as a professional nanny, and working in healthcare consulting, she made the transition to real estate.
She supports transactions and marketing for The Long Group.
Christie has made the north side - the Southport Corridor - her home, and spends her free time at the dog beach (with Coco and Velo), at Wrigley, or running along the lakefront.
