About me.....When I started planning to relocate from California to Illinois In 2014 I had no idea all of the details I would need to consider before making that move. Learning about timing, leases, finding a home in one state, while living in another, registering kids for school, moving companies, shipping cars and many other details was stressful! I do not want you to have this experience. Making the decision to move across states takes courage and a bit of adventure. I learned that it often means moving forward in spite of fears!
If you are considering the adventure of relocating to a new state and have a home to sell or you are looking to purchase or lease a new home, I'm your girl! I am licensed in Illinois and Georgia and able to help you in both states.
When I am not supporting clients I enjoy dancing, bike rides, live jazz music and spending time with my family. Overall, I am always looking to find joy and fun in each moment.

Why I became a real estate professional
I became a real estate broker because I wanted to support families as they make one of the biggest decisions and investments of their lives. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay area and when I was in fourth grade my mom and step father bought a home in a Bay Area suburb. It was a transformative moment for the trajectory of my family and my future dreams and goals. My mom worked a full time job and was also a part-time real estate agent in California, so as a kid I spent time on the weekends going to open houses and showing properties! As an adult, I graduated from San Francisco State and UC Berkeley. For 10+ years I was a teacher and a school leader. As a school leader I loved hearing teachers ideas and connecting them with helpful resources. As a real estate professional I enjoy connecting friends and clients with options for inspectors, lenders, and real estate attorneys. Real estate requires a team. I believe in working cooperatively to achieve my clients goals.
What My Clients Say about working with me
"Working with Paris was an absolute joy! She is incredibly thoughtful, reliable, and organized. This was our first house, and we bought at a time when we had a lot going on, and had a very tight closing window of 30 days. This meant that it was that much more important to work with an agent who was not only responsive, but also highly proactive. And Paris was that and more. There are not enough words to express how highly we recommend her. If you want to work with an agent who will champion you and you navigate the process of buying your home, Paris Williams is the person you want." ~Billy O., Chicago, IL (5 star Zillow review)
My experience working with Paris was excellent! She was thoughtful and thorough throughout the process of finding a tenant for my out-of-state investment property. She consistently kept me updated and informed, and worked to develop a strategy that attracted the right candidates for my property. After this successful experience, I will be working with her for my future real estate needs. Highly recommend!

Is 2022 Your Year to buy a home?
Maybe you looked around in 2021 but you sat it out because of how competitive the market was. If that was you, this could be your year to make it happen. Even though interest rates have increased in 2022, they are still low. Choosing to buy a home is a big deal and it is not something that should happen overnight so if you are thinking this might be your year then you want to start planning and preparing now.
