Clients are saying:
"Chris came highly recommended from our relocation company and ended up surpassing our expectations. Her knowledge of the North Shore area is extensive; if she could not answer a question, a rarity, she was able to connect us to a person who could. Her connections were equally extensive. When I wanted details about one of the towns in particular, Chris immediately gave me the name and number of a friend in that community who graciously answered my questions for twenty minutes on the phone. Additionally, as out of state buyers, it was a bit challenging to personally view each and every home in which we had an interest. On several occasions, Chris used Face Time to provide me with a tour of the house. My husband and I were also impressed with her level of professionalism. In the midst of the house hunt, Chris experienced a personal loss and continued to provide us with excellent service and remain responsive to our needs. We highly recommend her services."
"When we finally found Chris through some recommendations we signed her up to sell our Highland Park home and couldn't have been more pleased. She is a sales person with wonderful creative skills and is a very adept negotiator. Working with Chris was a pleasure and that is not often experienced when selling a home."
"Chris Veech is quite frankly the BEST real estate agent I have ever met or worked with. She conducts her business with extremely high professionalism and class. Her knowledge and cheerful nature makes the stressful home buying process as smooth and seamless as possible. My husband and I would recommend Chris to anyone needing to buy or sell a home in Chicago's north shore. We will be certainly using her again the next time we move!!!"
"Chris was extremely helpful in selling my house, a house that was on its way to foreclosure. She was able to help orchestrate a short sale and avoid foreclosure. Chris was extremely knowledgeable about the short sale process, answering all my questions and concerns. She kept me informed and updated as the short sale progressed. I felt that Chris was my advocate through out the entire process."
"Chris is the best!! She was very professional in every way. Our transaction was different in that it was an auction and she helped us every step of the way as well as putting us in touch with John Lovestrand the real estate lawyer. We will continue to work with Chris going forward in selling our house. We also would recommend her to anyone who would ask."
