Clients are saying:
"Chris Veech is a true professional. Chris always puts her clients needs first, and makes them feel comfortable throughout the process. She is very knowledgeable on the New Trier school district market and the broader North Shore. When you work with Chris, you will feel like you are her only client (which isnt the case!) which is a great quality in a realtor. I highly recommend using her!!"
"Chris sold our home in buyer's market. She gave us great advice in how to prepare our home for sale. Within a couple weeks of listing we had multiple offers. We sold to a very well-qualified buyer. She made a difficult process very logical and structured. Chris is an experienced professional and a pleasure to deal with!"
"Chris Veech has shepherded us through the maze of homes she has shown us over the span of several years. We have been bothering Chris with our pipe dreams for so very long. When I got the transfer to work out of O'Hare effective 1 Apr 17, Chris kicked it into high gear. She was completely understanding and patient with us as we flailed, and flip flopped through the now, very real probability of pulling the trigger on finally acquiring a home in the neighborhood my wife has always wanted to live in. When we found the home we wanted, she kept our feet on the ground and got us to focus on realistically negotiating for the purchase of the home we wanted to raise our kids in.Nothing about this process has been mundane. Chris did a great job of supporting us during this process and advising us how to get what we were entitled to. We were blind about a lot of things that she made clear for us. I didn't understand just how much a realtor does in this buying process. We might have been able to pull this off ourselves, but no way could we have gotten all that we did without Chris's handholding. She was the quarterback on our team. Many thanks!"
"Chris was an excellent broker, very professional and we followed her advice to the letter from the start of the process. This advice proved invaluable, from the updates and changes that we needed to make to the house, to her recommendations on an attorney. I would highly recommend her to anyone wishing buy or sell their house."
"My husband and I were paired up with Chris through a relocation service provided by our out of state realtor. Chris was truly a perfect match for us. Her positive attitude, attention to detail, availability, and professionalism helped make our house hunting process very enjoyable. She is truly an invaluable resource and we are so grateful for all of her time and efforts. We will highly recommend Chris to our friends and family."
