"During our time of sadness with the death of a family member,Kristie appeared in the condo building and the rest is history. She is very knowledgeable, very professional and most of all she keeps sellers informed as to what is going on. From beginning to the the closing table she is there. We would highly recommend her for the Chicago-land area."

"Kristie is the best realtor ever! She is prompt, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and always available to answer any and all questions. She is a fantastic hands on realtor and is willing to help with everything. We didn’t have to worry about anything throughout the entire buying and selling process. It was a seamless and comfortable transition that she made worry free. I would highly recommend Kristie to anyone searching for a realtor in or outside the area!"
"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!"
"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!"
