Whether it’s personally or professionally – family, friends and community are important to me. Giving back and helping others is part of my core. That’s why being a consultant – a trusted advisor – gives me a great sense of accomplishment. It’s why I spent 14 years as a relationship manager in commercial banking before moving into real estate. 

During my banking career, I enjoyed helping businesses achieve their goals by listening, gathering information, analyzing, and providing solutions. While I enjoyed my role, I wanted to more closely affect people’s lives. To utilize my skills to help individuals and families make their largest financial decision also one of their best experiences. To add comfort and confidence to the home-buying or selling experience.

Over the years, I have come to believe that it’s possible to follow your passions and live your dreams. I believe it takes perseverance, positively and embracing change. This belief is what led me to change careers and join Stark Company Realtors. This belief is how I will provide the highest level of service to help you meet and exceed your goals.

" The pressure was on as my wife and I needed to sell our condo to finalize our accepted offer on our new home. Not only did Monique help us sell our condo  in 4 days , she got us well over asking price! Her attention to detail and personable nature made us feel both comfortable and in-the-loop ever step of the way. While sitting in the living room of our dream home we feel grateful that we had such fantastic representation from a great realtor that genuinely cares about her clients and their goals.   "

"   As first time homebuyers, we were lucky enough to work with Monique. She was very helpful and patient as we narrowed down our search in the Madison area, and assisted us in putting together a competitive offer which eventually got us our first home! She was very personable and thorough in the entire experience. She was a pleasure to work with, and although we won’t be leaving this house anytime soon, we will be sure to call Monique for any of our future real estate needs!  "
