Born and raised on the Northwest side of Chicago, Harwood Heights has become a second home for me since the year of 2008. I am a graduate of Holy Cross High School and have completed numerous real estate courses, including obtaining my Illinois Managing Brokers license.
I am extremely active in the Italian community, including serving as a current board member for Casa Italia, The Italian Cultural Center, Italian American Executives of Transportation, and The Italian American Political Coalition. During this time, I have chaired numerous events including the Fall Festival, Christmas Village, and being the Master of Ceremonies for the Annual Man of the Year Dinner Dance event in 2014. I have also served on several local boards, including the Norridge-Harwood Heights Little League program, and previously Sergeant At Arms for The Village of Harwood Heights, before being elected to the office of Trustee in 2017.
I am currently the owner and managing broker of Zerillo Realty Inc. We are a local real estate brokerage dealing in residential and commercial real estate services and development. I am a member of the National, State, and local association of Realtors, along with the Multiple Listing System. I am very proud of what I have been able to build over the past 10 years since opening my doors.
In 2010, I was honored with the President’s Award from the Italian American Executives of Transportation. This award is given to one person annually in recognition for their outstanding accomplishments, commitment, and dedication to the community. In 2011 I was honored with the David’s Award from the Italian Sons and Daughters of America in the category of real estate. In 2012 the Illinois State Crime Commission honored me with the “Award of Excellence in Community Outreach”.
I am also the trustee of Harwood Heights, and you can always believe that our community will come first. The needs of our residents and businesses are always at the top of my list, because at the end of the day, that is what I am elected to do! We keep everyone working together to accomplish the ultimate goal, and that is to have a town equipped for the future, while taking care of current day needs and concerns. I believe that what we do now should not burden the generations to come, but instead, improve our beloved Harwood Heights, for those after us to enjoy.
