Erin Payton is a lifelong Illinoisan; she grew up in Aurora, attended college at University of Illinois in Champaign, and moved to Chicago the minute the ink was dry on her diploma. Erin has spent the last 15 years honing her Sales and Marketing skills, first selling advertising at the Chicago Tribune and later fundraising for such non-profits as the Chicago International Film Festival. Erin met her husband Roger at The Playground and iO Chicago where they were both improvisers. They welcomed Alice in 2013 and Max in 2015;; so far they think their parents are funny, but their main comparison is Disney Junior. Erin and Roger keep in shape by running various races around the city, with the Shamrock Shuffle being their favorite. Having purchased her first condo as a single 20-something and her second and their homes with her young family, Erin understands that buying or selling your home is a very personal, very important decision. Erin loves to share her passion for real estate with her clients and is a proud member of Swake Group.
