Kristie Edwards brings 18 years of sales experience. As a highly trained real estate agent, she has a knack for making the selling and buying experience easy and joyful for her clients. She really enjoys the pre-listing process of selling a home. Thinking of herself as a real estate concierge of sorts finding the best handymen, landscapers, stagers, painters, attorney's, lenders, etc. for her clients in order to close her home sales in a timely manner, for the highest price.
She draws on her years of providing corporate training and selling to educate and inspire her clients onto their next real estate adventure. Kristie's clients say she is trustworthy, organized, focused, known to keep a balanced perspective and fun to work with. She is thrilled to partner with @properties, the #1brokerage in Chicago, bringing the best resources, systems, and marketing tools to her clients.
For the last 5 years, Kristie and her family have lived on the North Shore and she can tell you a lot about the homes, schools, parks, recreation, restaurants, etc. in the area. Prior to moving to Wilmette, they lived in the Southport Corridor, Lakeview and Ravenswood neighborhoods for over 20 years, raising three children.
She enjoys spending time with her children, watching sporting events and biking to the lakefront with her husband when they aren't racing to watch the latest movie. Another passion she shares is helping mentor young people. "Navigating through life is a tricky prospect, this holds true with real estate also. I offer my past successes and experiences as a way to make the journey a little more rewarding."
Clients are saying:
"Kristie expertly guided me through a difficult sale in a tough market working hard to position my house in the best possible manner. Kristie supported me through all of the phases of the sale and communicated all of the options clearly. Kristie managed many long weekends of open houses and showings with a positive attitude and guided me to make changes based on feed back which she actively solicited from the showings. Kristie played an active role in managing all of the buyer's many requests and the service providers to satisfy them. I look forward to working with Kristie to buy my new home. I provide the highest recommendation--work with Kristie for success!"
"I had the most relaxed and well informed home search with Kristie. I knew what to expect every step of the way, felt heard regarding my desires and she delivered. As we visited different properties she saw important aspects of the property that I would have never thought of as being important to the economics of homeownership as well as re-sale considerations, and this was my 4th home purchase. I have confidently recommended her to three friends already and I'll share what I’ve told them: if you want someone who is smart, competent, thorough and kind, call Kristie!"
"I LOVED how Kristie was available to my husband and I all the time and was always taking care of us! I would 100% recommend her to anyone. She always responded quickly and fulfilled our requests with the sellers/agents and made the home buying process easy and comfortable. She walked us step by step throughout our entire journey."
"Kristie Edwards is the BEST realtor I could have ever dreamed of having to sell my home. She led the process of getting our home ready to put on the market and provided all the "right" contacts. I will forever remember this transaction as being a lot of work with the best support, resource manager, and cheerleader on our team. Yay for Kristie and @properties. She will definitely be the lead on any of our future transactions!"
"Kristie was great - she was very knowledgeable and responsive, and made the buying process easy and painless. I will definitely use her again for my buying/selling needs and would highly highly recommend her to others!"
