Kristen Wheatley – Experience. Insight. Guidance.
Kristen is a 22-year veteran expert in real estate, with her entire career focused on knowledge of the unique Lincoln Park, Lakeview and Gold Coast communities. She brings understanding of home values and optimal locations; developer relationships, plus a solid grasp of design needs and build quality; as well as an important time-tested capability to successfully navigate negotiation and transaction details.
She is a third generation Chicagoan who has lived her entire life in the city, and 25 years as a Lincoln Park resident, now in a DePaul home she helped design and build. Reliable, experienced advice and guidance are paramount in her client relationships. As a mom to two young daughters and a house full of Newfoundland dogs, she appreciates the requirements and desires of families looking for homes that meet their lifestyle need, as well as schools that answer the right education bell.
Kristen is connected: to long-standing relationships with mortgage experts, legal advisors, builders, designers and others who support successful real estate deals and thoughtful, creative solutions to post-purchase interests.
- Inspired insight is a hallmark of her work based on a belief that true and deep understanding of her client’s preferences, goals and wishes is vital to finding and securing the right home.
“There is nothing more important to me than fostering trusted relationships with my clients and others I do business with. That’s why honesty and integrity is paramount in my work. I love it when clients find that unique intersection of sheer delight in the right new home, bundled with a transaction that met or exceeded their financial goals.”
Kristen is a well-known asset to the community as former President and currently Executive Board member of Northwestern Memorial Foundation HOPE Board and member of the Boys and Girls Club of Chicago Guild Board. And a very proud Girl Scout leader.
