Paula Pasinski joins the FBD team with many years of experience in the construction industry, and a strong focus on finance, accounting and real estate.
Growing up in Chicago as the daughter of a general contractor, builder, and Cook County building inspector, Paula had an early exposure to construction, and developed a strong interest in the industry. While attending school, Paula relocated to the far southern suburbs with her family, during which she expanded her career into the finance and mortgage industry. She was also involved in the rehabbing of several residential properties, including one notable 5,000 SF renovation/addition, where she filled both the project management, and designer roles. Paula co-owned and operated a general contracting and construction firm, as well as her own concrete construction company for several years. In addition to general contracting and subcontracting, her company also developed, constructed, and sold several of their own new construction properties. Through the development of her own company, Paula was able to gain valuable first hand experience in all phases of construction, as well as in depth project cost accounting, and business management knowledge.
After recently relocating back to Chicago, Paula now resides in the South Loop with her son and her beloved St. Bernard. In her free time she enjoys staying active, spending time exploring the city, and enjoying the lakefront with her son.
