Appreciate your help & wisdom again and for your friendship. You did an amazing job in renting it couple of weeks this time.
"Christopher took two nervous, often overwhelmed first time buyers and worked with us every bit of the way of our buying process. His patience, advice and knowledge all helped guide us. But, what worked best, was the personal approach Chris brought to every meeting, showing, Email or phone conversation. Graeme and I LOVE our new home and appreciate Christopher's guidance and help."
"Chris is the embodiment of “above and beyond.” As first-time buyers new to the Chicago market, Chris helped us identify what mattered most to us in a home and found a variety of unique properties that matched our personal wish list. When the time came to sell, Chris brought the same guidance, care, and attention to detail – down to fixing a broken lightbulb when we were out of state! I will definitely be recommending Chris to others in the future."
