With the exception of a few years for college, I am a lifelong Philadelphian, growing up in East Falls and attending high school at Penn Charter and working weekends at Elfant Wissahickon Realtors since I was 13 years old. After graduating from the University of Miami with degrees in Creative Writing and History, I decided to get my real estate license instead of heading to law school. I've been a licensed realtor with Elfant Wissahickon Realtors since 2010 and I've never looked back. Coming into the real estate industry, still recovering from the financial crisis of 2008, I've seen the lowest lows and the craziest peaks.
Early in my real estate career, I worked as an assistant to Louise D'Alessandro, co-founder of Elfant Wissahickon Realtors. Since then, I joined the Karrie Gavin Group, where we have been one of the most productive teams in the city year in and year out, helping 100s of folks buy and sell real estate over the years. I have my associate broker license and serve as Industry Liaison for Elfant Wissahickon, attending national conferences and networking with other industry leaders to stay on the forefront of real estate.
I have been active with the Greater Philadelphia Association of Real Estate since 2016, serving on many committees, in various roles. I am thrilled to be the 2022 President of GPAR. I have been active with the National Museum of American Jewish History, The Cheva, Tribe 12 and other jewish organizations in Philadelphia. I was a board member of the Center City Residents Association in 2015 and 2016 and a member of the East Falls Community Council prior to that. I am a long-time supporter of the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society and Legacy Youth Tennis.
I live in Germantown with my wife, Caylynn and son, Elijah and our two dogs, Lego and Gatsby. In my free time, I can be found throwing axes competitively at Urban Axes or competing in Canada, playing tennis at Germantown Cricket Club or disc golfing in Fairmount Park (or 'throwing frisbees in the woods with friends' as my wife describes it).

Hello! I am a Philadelphia native and welcome the opportunity to work with you in the city I call home. I spent over a decade working in franchise Operations. My experience in franchising lends well to marketing, competitive analysis, construction, budgeting and most importantly communication. All of these will lend well to the support and expertise needed to buy or sell your home. I understand that deciding to sell your home and deciding to buy a home are really big choices. I want to listen to your needs and see if we are a great fit. I am sure we will like each other, but my goal is to be genuine, moral and focused on your home goals. Feel free to keep reading to learn more about me and when you are ready to talk call, email or text me
My interest in real estate started over six years ago when I starting searching for my first home. As a first-time home buyer, I quickly learned how important my real estate agent was to the process. I want to ensure you get the same excellent service! Prior to working in franchising, I worked for City Year. My time with the organization was rooted in education and supporting local community organizations. This has led me make volunteering a regular activity. I also enjoy bowling, soccer, hiking and quality time with family and friends. I love listening to podcasts and cheering for our local sports teams. I look forward to working with you as a Realtor at Elfant Wissahickon.

Born and raised in Naples, Florida, Rosie Dillon moved to the Philadelphia area in 2006 to attend Haverford College, and never looked back. After earning her BA, she went to work for Philadelphia homelessness non-profit Project HOME. After sharing in many victories and wearing many hats with the organization, Rosie’s love of food, wine, and people drew her to the hospitality industry. She managed busy Center City restaurants for three years. In addition to making her pretty much unflappable, restaurant management made Rosie a great educator and coach. The skills she used to demystify the sometimes opaque world of wine are the same ones she now uses to educate and empower real estate clients.
Over the years, Rosie has called West Philly, Fairmount, East Kensington, and Point Breeze home. Rosie and her husband Avi, a reporter for WHYY, along with PAWS cat CJ, decided to settle in the Passyunk Square neighborhood of South Philly. After all the boxes were unpacked, Rosie realized that she wasn’t done looking for homes. She got her PA real estate license and joined Elfant Wissahickon.
Rosie’s clients can rest assured that she will bring a really good bottle of wine to the closing table.
