Clients are saying:
"We could not have gotten through the home buying process successfully without Chris! From the get-go, he helped us evaluate our options, taking into account perspectives and insights we would never have thought of on our own. During the negotiation process of a home purchase in Downers Grove, he spent hours educating us and helping us get to the right offer amount and contingencies. Due to his recommendations and strategic insights, we were able to out-bid other offers. He was right there with us throughout the closing process and all the work that goes into that. He was always available, responsive within hours, and truly cares about us. We are now working with Chris to sell our condo downtown, and are more than confident he will have our best interests in mind to help us close that chapter of our lives."
"Chris has helped me purchase two properties -- one in downtown Chicago, one in the suburbs -- and is currently helping me on a sale. He has high knowledge of the Chicagoland area and provides white glove service to his customers. Chris is always available to answer questions and provides sound advice and strategy when negotiating. He is highly recommended and has helped family and friends with their real estate needs successfully as well."
"The first thing that impressed me about Chris was his knowledge of the two Chicago neighborhoods I was moving from and moving to. After signing up with him, though, I never had to worry about the entire process. He answered all my concerns and questions quickly and expertly, and even anticipated problems before they even happened! My neighbors have been impressed with how easily the sale, inspection, walk through and closing went, especially since other condos in my building have had trouble selling. We have become good friends, and, when the time comes, I know he will be there to help me when I purchase a new condo! I will definitely recommend him to anyone I know looking for a realtor!"
"Great experience overall. Good selections based on my criteria. Very responsive to all emails and texts. Always right on time for showings. Knew the area very well and understood all relevant local nuances of nearby shops, parking etc."
"Chris is very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods he works in and has always helped me make the right choices during buying and selling transactions."
