Chantel Asner is an advocate of Chicago living and truly believes this “city of neighborhoods” is like none other. She has lived in the Bucktown/Wicker Park/Ukrainian Village neighborhoods since 2005, and believes them to be among the most exciting, eclectic, and all encompassing neighborhoods in the country. Although she calls this area of the city her home, Chantel enjoys taking advantage of what Chicago’s other neighborhoods have to offer, and can recommend restaurants, venues, bars, and shopping in your neighborhood of choice. Most importantly, she is an expert on each neighborhood’s distinctive markets.
Chantel understands that finding your dream neighborhood is not unlike finding the love of your life. “I often feel like a relationship matchmaker when helping buyers, especially first time buyers, find their dream home. Their personality and energy level needs to be compatible with their neighborhood, so that they can fall in love and truly call their new place home.”
Being a “matchmaker” comes easily to Chantel after having spent 9 years in the cosmetics industry, prior to her real estate career. She is used to listening to her clients, learning their personalities, needs, and connecting them to the perfect product. As a buyer agent, she enjoys getting to know her client’s lifestyle and finding the perfect home and neighborhood to compliment them. Her patience and expertise are especially helpful to first time homebuyers. Chantel is known for making her clients feel at ease during the buying process, relieving much of the stress and making the journey fun and exciting. For sellers, her extensive sales experience makes her a reliable asset. She understands the art of presentation, strategic marketing, and the psychology behind negotiations.
Chantel values the long-term relationships she has with her clients and actively maintains her client relationships long after the closing. Reputation and excellent customer service are the foundations on which she builds her business.
When not working, Chantel enjoys listening to music and attending live performances. She studied classical voice at the Lawrence University Conservatory in Appleton, WI and is passionate about music of all kinds. Chantel considers Chicago’s musical history and the widespread access to quality live music part of what makes Chicago so special.
Clients are saying:
"Chantel did a great job working with us for over a year getting exactly the property we wanted - if you want the best - give Chantel a call!!"
"Chantel was a fabulous agent! She was referred to us by a friend, and we couldn't be happier with how everything went. She provided us with detailed information on each property when we went out to view it, including what our monthly mortgage payment would be, which we found to be very helpful as first time buyers. We finally closed on our first condo last week, and could not have done it without her. We would recommend Chantel to anyone!"
"Chantel was amazing! She did so much to help me through this process. Being a first time buyer I had no idea what I was doing, she was able to guide me through the process and helped me to feel confident in what I was doing! She went above and beyond helping me to navigate contractors and electricians to make sure the home I choose was perfect! THANK YOU CHANTEL!"
"As a couple who had never purchased a home before, we were beyond impressed and sincerely appreciative with Chantel's level of professionalism and knowledge of Chicago's market. She took a lot of time to educate us and truly made us feel like we were an important and valued client. From the first meeting we had, she helped us consider things we'd never realized were truly important, look at places we hadn't considered, and envision interior design/layouts we wouldn't have imagined when we starting the walk through process. She made some "gut calls" on our behalf that ended up with us living in a home we are extremely happy with. We absolutely recommend Chantel to anyone looking for their first or 10th home. We will keeping in touch with her when and if we ever move!"
"Chantel is great to work with and she really knows the local market."
