""Chris is the agent I envisioned when looking for an agent as a first time home buyer. I wanted an agent that was confident and knowledgeable without being pushy or arrogant. Chris is the ideal agent. He is available anytime, and is happy to answer questions, big or small. My wife and I rave about our experience. We first met Chris at an open house where he was the selling agent. Our first impression of Chris had us politely end our relationship with our current agent in order to allow Chris to guide us through our first condo purchase. His team helped to support him and us tremendously during the entire process. I can't explain enough how his professionalism and overall demeanor give buyers an advantage when looking for a home." Mike (West Loop)"

""We used Chris on both the sell and buy side in our move from the city to the burbs. Sold condo in 1 day. Closed on sale in the morn and closed on buy in the afternoon. It was perfect and in large part due to Chris." Chaz (West Loop/ Wilmette)"

""Chris is without exception the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. He is extremely knowledgeable about the industry and provides outstanding guidance. His responsiveness is incredible. " Dom (West Loop/Hinsdale)"

""From his marketing materials to the lengths he went to in order to keep the deal on track - Chris did a great job start to finish. In a difficult home sales environment, it's that much more important to have a true professional like Chris working for you." Charlie (Fulton Market)"

""I was very confident selling my West Loop condo with Chris. He KNOWS the market and the result was top dollar within the first few days listed on the market. The closing process was smooth and transparent. Chris guided us along the way and we felt we were in good hands." David (Fulton Market)"

""I listed my West Loop residence with Chris and Jennifer on 01/14/2019 and within 5 days I had multiple offers, one of which was above asking price. My condo was under contract by the 6th day on the market and closed 45 days after that. I could not have hoped for a better experience and outcome.

This is my second time dealing with Chris and Jennifer (the previous being a purchase) and, quite simply, I won't ever work with anyone else as long as his team is in the real estate business.

The property buying and selling process can be intimidating and cumbersome. Chris brings tremendous clarity to the entire process through his extensive experience, market knowledge and very talented team of resources. He has a comprehensive group of experts (marketing, legal, financing, etc) that add value to every step in the buy/sell process. I've seen first hand that this can be all the difference between a successful and non-successful deal.

What impressed me most though, was how personal Chris and Jennifer take this business. There's a sincerity that they both have that can't be faked - since closing, I've received follow up calls and messages from both of them. On separate occasions they both supported elements of my transaction that I considered well outside of our scope - not because of monetary incentive, but because they wanted to help and make for a smooth process. That's not easy to find these days." Drew (West Loop)

Thank you Chris and Jennifer."

""I have purchased two properties with Chris' help. My first condo I was very jumpy and displayed all the symptoms of the first time buyer. Chris was calming and made me sure he had my best interests at heart. He negotiated well for me and also helped me see faults and bonuses in potential properties. I would and will definitely use Chris again for my next purchase. His clients are lucky to have someone that knows the market and Chicago as well as he does." Damien (Roscoe Village)"

""Chris is an amazing realtor! I have worked w Chris twice now, once as a buyer and now also as a seller. I was struggling to rent my house while I was living out of state and decided to put it on the market in December knowing it would be tough given the time of year in Chicago. Chris had multiple showings lined up within 48 hours and got a full price offer in 3 days. Chris is professional, responsive, and respectful. Excellent realtor. Erin (Wicker Park/Bucktown)"

""Currently i am working with Chris on 2 deals buy and sell and let me start by saying its been a great experience Chris is very responsive to all my calls text and emails you know some agents will get back to you the next day or hours later but with Chris he is on top of everything i think the guy never sleeps he sold our condo in 43 days, he knows the market very well and a straight shooter will tell you if you are priced well or over priced. to sum it up if you are looking for an agent look no further Chris is your guy you can trust him you can rely on him andyou can bet will sell your condo or he will find you the best fit for your needs. Fadi (West Loop)"

""I can't say enough how easy Chris made the selling process. Definitely took a lot of stress out of the progress. Chris and his assistant Jennifer helped guide us every step of the way, including very helpful advice for preparing our unit for listing / sale. His contact network came in very handy when it came to repairs and staging furniture for our condo. The advice on list timing was excellent as well and in conjunction with the open house we were able to get us under contract with an offer $10k over list price within 1 week! Moved to another state, but would definitely use Chris again and highly recommended to anyone looking to sell or purchase their property." Kevin (Lincoln Park)"

""Chris has been my rental agent for over a decade. He knows the West Loop and Fulton Market areas better than anyone, is experienced, easy to work with and an all around professional." Dominic (Fulton Market River District)"

""I had a terrific experience working with Chris on my real estate transaction. He was always available to address my concerns and went above and beyond every step of the way. Chris knows how to handle any situation and works tirelessly to achieve his clients' goals. Easily the best broker I've ever used, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a flawless closing experience." Frank (West Loop)"

""Being first time home-buyers, my husband and I didn't know exactly where to start and Chris came highly recommended from my best friend. Start to finish, Chris was professional, knowledgeable, keen, understanding and just a pleasure to work with. Every step of the way, Chris answered every question (usually with lightning speed!) and calmed any nerves we had. He really made the process manageable and relieved any anxiety whenever necessary. We ended up with the perfect place in our ideal neighborhood. And we couldn't be happier!" Jennifer (Evanston)"

""Chris was great to work with. We worked with him both on the sell and buy side, and had a great experience for both.

When we initially met and interviewed Chris in 2013 (along with another Realtor), we were selling our condo. Our primary objective was choosing a Realtor that had our best interest in mind. Chris came to our meeting prepared with relevant and up-to-date comparables. He was generally very optimistic about how to market and price our condo. When we chose to work with Chris, one of our underlying concerns was whether he was too optimistic, as his suggested listing price was 10% more than another realtor.

When we called Chris to work with him, we expressed our motivation for selling and suggested we lower the listing price than what he advised. He responded that while it might make his job easier, he thought we should price more aggressively based on the market analysis he conducted.

This turned out to be a great move - we sold our place in 8 days for near listing price. Chris was great in guiding us through the process.

A few years later when we were back in the market to buy a condo in Chicago, there was no question that we'd work with Chris. Once again, we left very happy with the support he provided - from finding the right place through the negotiation process and finally onto closing. We definitely recommend working with Chris." John (West Loop)"

""Chris was very helpful and accommodating throughout the entire process. Chris also assisted us in selling our current condo. In both transactions there were several unique obstacles that came about and Chris was a calming influence during some stressful events. I think I spoke to Chris at least once every day for a month and half (including weekends) and he never sounded put off or irritated with any of my questions or requests. We would definitely recommend Chris to anyone who is looking for a broker in the Chicagoland area." Kevin (Fulton Market/)Wicker Park)"

""Chris's guidance helped me receive a full cash offer for my unit one day after listing. I felt I was in good hands from day one due to his expertise and responsiveness.

I was planning on listing my unit in Q3 due to a lease end-date. Chris encouraged me to ask if tenant would be open to ending the lease early to list in Q2 due to market trends. The tenant was open and we were able to list/sell in late Q2.

Chris also encouraged some minor work to the unit to better show and recommended an amazing contractor.

Chris is a Chicago real estate expert and I’d highly recommend him." Justin (River North)"

""Chris went above and beyond my expectations when it came to helping me find my new home. He was highly recommended to me by a friend and I would highly recommend him to anyone I know looking to buy/sell. He took the time to walk me through the entire process of purchasing a new home from start to finish which put my first time buyer nerves at ease. He was always available when I had questions. He's professional, patient and responsive and was in constant communication throughout the entire process. I can't thank Chris and his team enough for all their help!" Kim (Old Town)"

""Chris is extremely knowledgeable about my building and real value of the properties. As a first time seller, he was thoughtful in his recommendations and patiently worked with us as we asked a ton of questions. Ultimately, our collaboration resulted in a higher final sales price and smooth process and as minimal out of pocket expenses as possible. We're satisfied. " Jason (West Loop)"

""I will use Chris again for the resell of my new place and in the search of a new place when the time comes. " Bryan (Bucktown)"

""Chris worked very hard to sell and find me a place and I truly appreciate that. The market was tough at the time but Chris kept at it and the hard work paid off. I was totally satisfied with everything Chris did for me throughout the process." Elissa (Fulton Market River District)"

""Chris has been my agent for a couple of transactions and each time he has exceeded my expectations. His intimate knowledge of the market has always provided the best results. Communication and professionalism are great, making his services a level above the rest." Jordan (West Loop)"

""Chris came highly recommended from a friend of mine and I am very pleased that I decided to use him as our Realtor. He was very prepared and knowledgeable on the market/industry and supplied us with great data to help make our buying process easier. He was very responsive and provided great detail throughout this sometimes tedious process. We are very pleased with our end result and would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home." Kevin (Wicker Park/West Loop"

""My wife and I decided to use Chris as a listing agent because of his reputation for results. Every listing for over a year has sold at his listing price and in a very short period of time. One might say his listing prices "pushed the market," but considering the average days on market was about two weeks, I would say the listing prices were fair.Despite the cost, we took his advice on staging and our unit sold two days before it was set to go on the market. It literally sold the day it was staged.Chris was a professional and even did some of the little things that needed to get done - such as shipping our DirecTV boxes and picking up a repaired screen.We were very happy with the results and the process that it took to get the results." Mike (Fulton Market River District)"

Michael (Fulton Market River District)"

""I bought a condo from Chris this spring and had a great experience. My situation was challenging in that I was buying a Chicago while living in another city and had only a few visits to figure out which area to live in an type of property to buy. Chris was great at working with my travel schedule, effectively using my time with online research and productive trips with open houses and well scheduled appointments. I appreciated his attention to detail, great response time and ultimately a great purchase and productive negotiation process with the seller.

I would recommend Chris to anyone in Chicago. While I know he is a very busy agent and had clients with much more significant projects than my small condo purchase, he always made me feel like I was his most important client!" Nicole (West Loop)"

""Chris helped me purchase my first property in 2008. He is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate industry/process and the properties in the several neighborhoods I was interested in living in across Chicago. Depsite my indeciseveness, Chris was very patient and spent a signficant amount of time finding and showing me properties - I never felt rushed into making a decision. Even after the purchase, Chris followed up with me several times to make sure the property was everything I expected it to be. My experience with him was outstanding. I have recommended Chris to my friends and will undoubtedly use him in the future." Ricky (Wicker Park)"

""Chris really exceeded our expectations. We were first time home buyers and he was very patient as we figured out exactly what type of property would work for us. He helped us through every step of the search and transaction, and was hyper responsive to calls and emails. We would definitely recommend his services and use them in the future." Nick & Nick & Nicole (Wicker Park)"

""The market analysis was spot on and we achieved our target price. The communication with Chris's team was clear and every call was answered. The few times I left a voicemail my call was returned within the hour. They made me eel like a priority and I would not hesitate to use them again." Rebecca (West Loop)"

""I decided to contact Chris to assist me in renting out my unit at 659 W. Randolph. I had received mailings from him throughout my ownership there, so I was aware that he had been involved with the building from its original construction and that he had become the local expert on the market for units there and was very familiar with the condo association and building management requirements. He followed up quickly and gave me some good insight regarding a price point to set, as well as market timing thoughts for future re-rental of the unit. Chris found a quality tenant quickly and his team was great with communication and follow up throughout the process. I highly recommend him and his team." Ron (West Loop)"

""Chris was great to work with, and very knowledgeable about the area. He was extremely responsive and helped me navigate a tough process, even while I was several states away." Paul (West Loop)"

""Chris is professional, extremely knowledgeable, and very dependable. " Frank (West Loop)"

""My wife and I recently used Chris to find and purchase a new home in Chicago. The tricky part was that we lived in Austin, Texas while trying to find our home. After initially telling Chris our wants and price range, he provided us with lists of properties that actually met our needs.....all while not trying to up-sale us to a higher priced property. Chris and his assistant set up many showings for us on short notice. I even threw in some last minutes properties we wanted to see, and he made those showings happen as well. He also freed up his schedule when it was convenient for us to be in town and made as much time for us as we needed to see quite a few properties. Chris led us through the entire purchasing process and had recommendations of inspectors, attorneys and mortgage lenders....all who turned out to be awesome! Chris truly is a full-service broker and I highly recommend him to anyone." Brad (Old Irving Park)"

""We have worked with Chris twice, once when he was representing the seller when we bought our first place and once as our agent when we bought the second time around. Both times he was a pleasure to work with, had loads of knowledge and was always quick to answer questions. Would definitely recommend!" Steven (West Loop)"

""Chris' team was great. As first time homebuyers, they patiently walked us through all the steps of finding and buying a home. They put a lot of effort into finding us our perfect condo, and it showed. They took the time to learn our preferences and research the properties we were interested in--recommending spots we might have otherwise overlooked and saving us time on spots that weren't worth our while. We were never pushed out of our comfort range on budget, and both Chris and Jennifer were very responsive. Definitely recommend!" Tim (Old Town)"

""As a first time home buyer, I was really nervous about the whole process from start to finish. Chris initially met with me along with his assistant, Jen, and explained how the whole process would work. After our initial consultation, the experience and expertise of Chris made this process flawless. They were very patient with me and answered all my questions and concerns promptly. Most importantly, together we found a place that felt like home to me. I would not hesitate to recommend Chris to my family and friends." Roseann (Lakeview)"

""I've been working with Chris since 2014 in my search for an apartment in downtown Chicago. And I recently closed on a condo. Chris was extremely helpful and extremely detail oriented. From helping me understand the true cost of ownership to connecting me with the right lawyer. Chris was extremely professional and very punctual. I would highly recommend his services to any potential apartment buyers in downtown Chicago." Tushar (Fulton Market River District)"

""I couldn't have asked for a better experience when selling my condo with Chis. He was extremely attentive and was able to get my condo sold before listing it on the market through his network of buyers and his website. He also recommended a real estate attorney who was equally amazing throughout the process." Patrick (Fulton Market)"

""Working with Chris was easy and efficient. He was an expert in the local neighborhood and negotiated well on our behalf. We would recommend Chris to anyone wanting to buy or sell in Chicago." Nichole (Fulton Market River District)"

""Chris was great to work with, starting from well before we agreed to have him represent us. As we evaluated agents, he was one of the first we reached out to. As we contacted others, and waited for them to respond and answer our questions, Chris was proactively following up and asking if there was anything else he could help with. This, plus his experience and record in the area, made it a pretty easy choice. He helped us prepare our property, including decisions about what issues to address and what would be a waste of our money. And he provided key insight to guide our decision around positioning our home on the market, based on our unique situation. In the end, when it came time for us to list, he already had a few people interested, and our property sold in just 3 days, at 99% of our asking price, thanks to his expert negotiating. We even got the exact closing date we wanted. For anyone selling in the West Loop/Fulton Market area, you really couldn't find a better agent than Chris McComas. Chase (West Loop)"

""Chris helped us find a great property and gave us the advice and guidance we needed throughout the process." Matt (West Loop)"

"Chris was the best!! So easy to work with, very informative (first-time buyers) and really took care of us from the very beginning. Would absolutely recommend Chris to anyone looking to buy!"

""Highly responsive, organized, detail oriented Real Estate Professional!! Working with Chris is no joke ;) From the moment that we contacted Chris all the way to our closing date, Chris was supportive and responsive. He immediately asked our goals and then was able to make recommendations about pricing and cycle times in the west loop market. I appreciated his organized and analytical approach (v. shoot from the hip) and not only did we go under contract in 23 days, we also received multiple competitive offers and ended up with a larger profit than we original expected. As it relates to unit upgrades and staging, we implemented all of Chris' recommendations (and he gets into the details!) which helped us achieve list to close in approx 60 days! Finally, Chris recommended a reputable staging company and great real estate lawyer who led us through the process with timely and tight communication." Sean (River North)"

""Chris was my agent this summer and helped me buy my dream 2 BR 2 BA condo in my dream area. I was a first-time home buyer and had a lot of questions, all of which Chris answered professionally and knowledgeably. I also appreciated that he was respectful of my price range and only showed me units within that range. Chris also is a great listener - he took my feedback from each unit and made sure the next units he showed me either met my needs or explained the pros/cons of various features. He also followed up post-closing to make sure all was well with my purchase. All in all, he is a great agent and I would recommend him to anyone!" Mathew (West Loop)"

""My wife and I have purchased properties in several different states and numerous locations within the Chicago area. Chris McComas was very instrumental in our recent purchase of a Chicago downtown condominium. Although we have purchased many home, we had never bought a condo. He displayed great knowledge of the local real estate market and helped us to obtain the best value available in the building we were interested in. I would definitely recommend and use him again." Chris (River North)"

""Chris was attentive and professional from start to finish throughout a lengthy and difficult closing process. We were fortunate to have his assistance and highly recommend him." Patrick (Bucktown)"

""I highly recommend Chris. As a first time Seller he was patient and clearly explained the process and what I should expect. He always made himself available to answer any questions or address concerns I had. Chris was careful to explain market trends and helped me understand what to expect and what steps I could take to position my property for maximum benefit. His advice was honest as well as sold. It was clear he was committed to representing me and my property to the best of his abilities." Eddie (West Loop)"

""Chris made selling my condo easy. He knows the market and was able to sell my place within weeks of listing. I would highly recommend Chris!" Mel (River North)"

""Chris was informative and fast with responses to any questions. He helped me through every step of the process. Most importantly my condo sold quickly at a better than expected price." Mike (West Loop)"

""Chris was very thorough with his knowledge and research of what we wanted to buy. He showed us many options in and around our budget as well as showing us the diversity of neighborhoods. Chris worked around our busy schedule and kept in close contact via email or phone. Being a first time home buyer he made the process easier and less stressful!" Brian (West Town)"

""From day one, Chris showed ambition in pricing and promoting our property. As we went through the process of selling our condo we became more and more certain that Chris had our best interest in mind, and in the end we were very pleased with the experience. We would recommend Chris to others in the future." John (Lakeview)"

""Chris and Jennifer were great to work with. As a first time Seller he was patient and clearly explained the process and market expectations with the condo unit I had for sale. He always made himself available to answer any questions or address concerns I had. With my construction job requiring my family and I to relocate to Florida. Chris was able to make the selling transaction as easily as possible with closing my condo from outside the state. Within two day of being on the market, I was presented a full asking price. I couldn’t be happier with the help and support from Chris and Jennifer. I was fully dependent on them and they made everything work flawlessly." Matt (West Loop)"

""Chris was great to work with. He worked hard and got the job done quickly. He's very professional and understands the business very well. He was always available and honest with his responses. I would recommend him to others." Maureen (West Loop)"

""Chris was prompt, knowledgeable, experienced in the market, resource-heavy, professional and accurate in his assessments of our needs and the market value of our home. He gave expert advice on all facets of the transaction including pricing, home preparation, setting seller expectation, communication, listing strategy and negotiations. We sold the property without even having to go to market due to Chris' network strength and experience." Steph (River North)"

""Easy process from start to finish. Total pro." Justin (River North)"

""My wife and I were the first-time home-buyers and only vaguely knew about the home-buying process at a very high level. Then there was Chris. He explained to us essential step-by-step knowledge we should know as home-buyers and responded to our questions via emails, texts and calls anytime of the day and any day of the week. Additionally, he not only just came offering help by himself, but brought a whole crew with him. I ended up going with everyone he recommended, which included the lender, attorney, inspector, painter, cleaning service and contractor, and all of them offered me a more competitive deal than what I could find from the market in an hour or two research. Overall, Chris is the person that could make the stressful home-buying process as smooth as possible and I would earnestly recommend Chris to anyone, both first-time and returning home-buyers, in Chicago." Peter (Lincoln Park)"

""Chris is outstanding at his job. I have and will continue to recommend him. Always on time, very thoughtful and creative. Did a great job of listening to our needs and responding. Frank (West Loop)"

""The most impressive thing I can say about Chris is something that may not sound spectacular: during the hectic process of relocating the entire process of selling my condo in Chicago was often the least of my worries. But that is precisely the definition of a job well done. Chris got us a good price for all involved, handled all of the inevitable drama of closing, etc. etc. without really ever reaching out to me except for very small items. I trusted him fully to handle everything and he followed through exceptionally. Chris handled all of the details of our sale and this made our relocation exponentially less difficult for us. He is truly exceptional at his job." Rob (West Loop)"

""Chris is a consummate pro who really understands the market and provides great advice. I could not be more happy with his representation on the sale of our home." Rob (Printer's Row)"

""Chris went above and beyond the other agents we picked. We shopped around for an agent for some time as I was super picky and with Chris, it was an instant fit. He knew the industry, market and all those small details you need to be aware of when making such a big decision. He also was very understanding and accommodating. Most of all, he figured out what our criteria and what we wanted in just a conversation or two and immediately started sending us options that were a perfect fit for us. The biggest thing is that he made you feel comfortable on rejecting options which other agents sometimes get really pushy or annoyed about. Overall, he totally rocks. 200% recommend Chris.

We found our dream home because of Chris and for that, we owe him forever!" Arian (Old Town)"

""My wife and I were first time home buyers, so we really had no idea what we were doing. The very first thing Chris did was walk us through a standard contract and exactly how the process works. He did this without any sort of pressure to utilize him as our realtor or attempting to get us to commit to him. Once we started looking at homes (and we looked at over 20 of them), Chris not once missed an appointment with us. Given my wife and my schedule, we could only look on Saturday and Sundays, sometimes with very short notice - and Chris accommodated each and every one.

One thing I really appreciated about Chris was that he NEVER made us feel pressured to make a decision. I think some realtors can feel their own pressure to make a sale, but Chris never made us feel that way. When we were in each home, he remained extremely objective and allowed my wife and I to form our own opinions. Then, when we wanted Chris's opinion or insight into his many years of experience, he was happy to provide it which was very helpful.

Searching for a home is stressful enough (we also had a brand new baby with us at the time), but Chris has a way of making it fun! Not to mention, he's just a kind, considerate, and genuine person to begin with. I'd trust him to watch my daughter!

I'd give him more stars if the site would let me. If you're looking for someone to help you every step of the process, be considerate and respectful of your schedule, has many, many years of experience, and works his tail off for his clients, Chris is your guy." Tyler (Glenview)"

""Chris was informative and always fast to respond to any questions. Most importantly my condo sold quickly at a high price." Michael (West Loop)"

""Chris has gone above and beyond many times throughout our home searching and buying process. From keeping us in the know with what is on the market, what our needs and requests have been, and addressing questions and concerns we’ve had. Chris is a professional - always punctual and courteous. It’s been a positive experience all around to have him as our broker." Christy (West Loop)"

""I will be going through Chris for all future dealings in real estate. His knowledge of the local markets, relationships in the real estate community, and straight shooter maintality just cannot be replicated by a DIY system or "online realtor". Our experience was of the highest quality, and we couldn't be more thankful for him helping us find our first home in the city." Elaine (West Loop)"

""Think of every superlative that would be associated with your most ideal housing search situation, and that is what it is like to work with Chris." Courtney (West Loop/Evanston)"

""We have worked with other realtors in the past, but only with Chris since we met him in 2011. He was a listing agent on a property we purchased and knew when it was time for us to sell he was the one for us. We have also worked with Chris to help us find a place to buy. Chris is an expert in the market, and process. Best advise I can give to work successfully with Chris is leverage his knowledge. Chris is patient and will address all of your concerns; trust his guidance." Bryan (River North)"

""Chris was a great agent to work with in buying my first place. With little knowledge of the market and the process he was able to help me out and advise me through every step of the way with his expertise and guidance. I was also able to get a great deal with his help and would recommend him to anyone looking for real estate. I'll hopefully be using Chris again in the next couple of years!" Jon (Wicker Park)"

""Chris was very knowledgeable in the market and helped us establish a sale price. He provided us with good ideas to enhance the marketability of our property. As a result, we received multiple bids which resulted in an offer in excess of our asking price." Nancy & Bob (West Loop)"

""Chris McComas has to be without exception the best Real Estate Agent I have ever worked with.He is very hard working and highly skilled at his profession. His follow up is outstanding. There really is no reason to work with anybody else." Ming (West Loop)"

""Chris did an excellent job helping us to find our dream house. He was very patient through out the process where we first looked at places in the city but ended up buying in the suburbs.

When we started our search Chris took us through what to expect (goods and bads) and this all come very much true - making it a lot easier for us to anticipate on what decisions to make.

In the final negotiations it was also very helpful to have Chris available or calling back within a short time to help guide the process and explain the options. As a first time home buyer he was a great resource, as well as his network of experts he recommended us to work with." George (Wilmette)"

""I used Chris after having to fire a realtor when the deal fell through at the closing table. I went to Chris as I knew him through fantasy football and. Ever regretted it. He not only found me the right condo in River North but was able to negotiate it under the appraised value. He than referred me to a lending agent that was able to get my loan at a better rate (fees) than my parents who are in real estate as well. I liked him, my parents liked him and now I have an awesome place right down town. I highly recommend his services." Kyle (River North)"

""Over the last 7 years we’ve hired Chris 3 times to find renters for our West Loop condo. He’s not only successful in finding new tenants, but he does so in a timely manor and goes thru a very detailed process to insure that they’re qualified and meet our standards. He’s proficient in staying up with real estate trends to keep our rental income on pace with the market.

Every interaction with Chris is professional. We will continue to use Chris for all of our real estate needs." Maria (Wicker Park)"

""Chris was easy to work with. For someone who was a first time buyer, he did a great job of explaining the process and being transparent as possible. Working with him and his assistant was a great experience. I would highly recommend talking to Chris if you are looking to buy in the Chicago area." Connor (West Loop)"

""Chris was so knowledgeable about the west loop, where I ultimately purchased. Throughout the purchasing and closing, which was not the easiest, he went above and beyond to help smooth out the process. I will certainly use him again." Liz (West Loop)"

""Chris McComas did a great job in meeting our needs, budgets, and timelines. We appreciate his time and effort David and Kori Burland (Roscoe Village)"

""Chris was very helpful in our search for a home. He did not steer us wrong. He was honest and was willing to find the perfect home for us. He was precise and made the process of buying very easy. So happy that he was able to find us the home we have been looking for." Kathryn (Old Irving Park)"

""Working with Chris was great. His experience translated to a very efficient and smooth buying process. I would recommend Chris to anyone who is purchasing a home." Chad (West Town)"

""Chris was great to work with. He was very patient with us as first time homebuyers, explaining the process every step of the way. He's exceptionally responsive and truly takes the time to learn your likes and dislikes so he can bring properties to your attention that you might not otherwise notice.

We would not have found the condo we eventually purchased if not for Chris. It was in a neighborhood we were previously not considering but we fell in love with it.

I've recommended Chris to friends and will continue to do so, as I think he's a hidden gem when it comes to buying a home." Tim (River North)"

""Chris is a true professional. His help and guidance throughout this stressful process was beyond reproach.He made everything move in a smooth fashion.Chris is a credit to your organization. I would highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling." Scott (Fulton Market)"

""Chris was great! He was flexible with our schedules in coordinating calls to set up the process, and he helped manage our expectations. Chris provided valuable insight into the rental market in our neighborhood. And the execution of the lease documentation was seamless. We greatly appreciated his assistance!" Christine (West Loop)"

""It was a true pleasure to work with Chris from beginning to end. He had my place sold within 3 weeks, at 98% of the asking price, and this was during a time when the real estate market was being called the worst in the past decade! Not only was Chris amazingly effective, he also went way above and beyond the call of duty to help me prepare my place to sell, going so far as to research contractors, oversee their work, and even move furniture and boxes on my behalf. During the negotiation and post-offer phase of the sale, he was on top of every detail, and actively involved with the buyer. He is a true professional and a genuine pleasure- I would recommend him to anyone." Lisa (West Loop)"

Thanks for everything, we are so happy in our new home." Chris (West Loop)"

""We are grateful to meet with Chris. Prompt, precise, and forthcoming with all matters we need to follow through. It was a pleasure to work with Chris. Thank you." Hotaek (West Loop)"

""Chris really exceeded our expectations throughout the whole selling process. Deciding to sell our condo by owner was a tough decision, but we decided to give it a shot. We had a very aggressive timeline that we needed to adhere to in order to close on the house that we were building. After two and a half months of attempting to sell our condo by owner we decided to list with Chris."Chris' knowledge of the River North area as well as his dedication and commitment to sell our condo within the 60-day timeframe was the reason we decided to give him the listing. Chris did such an amazing job with the marketing and exposure of our condo. You accomplished the impossible of getting our condo under contract after only one week of being on the market. Jen ( Fulton Market River District)"

""Chris took the time to educate me on the market and kept me constantly updated on the comps in the area. Additionally, he offered advice on how to quickly get my condo "show" ready and put me in touch with the right people to make it happen. He went above and beyond in order to ensure that the closing of my property went as smoothly as possible. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone." Andrew (West Loop)"

""Rock. Star. Professional and dependable agent who advocates for you. And also hilarious." Wade (Old Town)"

""Chris and Jennifer are a top notch team! They found stellar renters for my condo - twice - and they ultimately helped me sell it to the perfect buyer. The processes of putting my home up for rent and sale were profoundly emotional ones for me, and they handled it with care and aplomb. I depended on Chris's direct, knowledgeable and compassionate council throughout every turn. He knows this business in and out, and he patiently helped me weigh the pros and cons of each situation. Each decision I made was an informed, but never coerced, one. Jen's support in getting me in touch with the best-in-the-business contractors, stagers, etc., and making sure I was ready to show and ready to go is unmatched. This is a team you will want to work with, whether you are a seasoned client, or a novice like me. I would recommend them to anyone. In a heartbeat." Abu (West Town)"

""Chris and his team had great communication with us throughout the process of renting out our condo and made everything very easy for us. Thanks!" Ron (West Loop)"

""Chris was very attentive and professional. We will certainly recommend him to people in the future. " Ana-Maria (West Town)"

""Chris and Jennifer were wonderful. Responsive, attentive, extremely well informed and knowledgeable. They were able to find me a wonderful 2 bedroom condo in a market where there were few to no options. Not only were they good at their jobs, they were easily relatable and I felt like I have made two new friends here in Chicago." Anil (West Town)"

""The least I could do is recommend him. Chris patiently and professionally handled finding the first home for my wife and me. He was promptly responsive to our questions and inquiries, and was able to adjust to our ever-changing needs with each viewing. In the end, we bought our first home in a beautiful and affordable neighborhood all because of his work." Marty (Andersonville)"

""Chris is an incredibly knowledgeable and efficient realtor. He quickly learned my tastes and needs and found me a dream concrete loft in the west loop! Would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or rent a home in Chicago." Adam (Bucktown)"

""I think Chris and Amber did a great job in keeping me up to date and keeping things moving along throughout the process. I certainly didn't have the time to get this done in the time allowed, so I couldn't have completed this without them." Jamison (West Loop)"

""It was a pleasure to work with Chris. He was patient, responsive and supportive throughout the entire process. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or rent a place in the city." Kelley (South Loop)"

"I've used Chris as my realtor for over a decade in Chicago. H'e helped me buy and sell multiple properties. Most recently he helped to list my condo and sold it in 3 days. He's incredibly responsive and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a strong agent."

""Chris helped me find my condo and negotiate a great price in 2015. His expertise throughout the loan, inspection and closing made the entire process go smoothly and swiftly. I would recommend him for even the most complicated transactions." Michelle (University Village)"

"Chris is awesome! He has a pulse with what is going on with the local economy and the housing market. He is always willing to go the extra step to make sure his clients are comfortable and taken care of. I would be lost without him!"

""Chris is attentive, quick and terribly professional. He sold my house under difficult circumstances, and in record time." Tony (Logan Square)"

""Chris worked very hard to sell and find me a place and I truly appreciate that. The market was tough at the time but Chris kept at it and the hard work paid off. I was totally satisfied with everything Chris did for me throughout the process." Peter (West Town)"

""I'm not one to usually write this - generally busy and have better things to do. I do write reviews when I feel they're warranted (good or bad) and earned. Chris McComas has earned this review and I'm happy to take the time to write it - hope you find it helpful if you're taking the time to read it. In full disclosure, I bought a West Loop condo from Chris recently.

First impression of Chris - very straight forward and very comfortable to work with. He took the time to ask questions and fully understand what I was looking for. He goes beyond just finding the right property and helping close deal. I quickly got the impression that Chris is committed to providing a great overall experience from beginning to end. That includes all aspects - the search, negotiating, closing, inspection, financing, etc. I truly felt that Chris genuinely cared about helping me find a place I'd be happy to call home.

Secondly, Chris knows the Chicago real estate market very well. Shared with me that he grew up here. Has lived in the West Loop for 15 years I believe. He shared all kinds of reports, statistics and other market information that he follows to keep up on this market.

Third - this ties into my first comment, but, it's important to re-emphasize. I didn't realize going into my home purchase that so much goes into it - appraisals, inspections, financing/underwriting, closing, insurance, etc. Chris has surrounded himself by some very reputable people that he leverages to help make for a smooth process. He works with a great real estate attorney (I believe his name was Nick Jacubko) and is partnered up with one of the best mortgage brokers I've worked with (Joe Catabiano at Gauranteed Rate - probably misspelled that last name pretty good).

Finally, I feel much more comfortable working with someone I can trust and I know will go to work for me. Chris was every bit of that. He answered his phone anytime I called. He was very transparent - with both good news and bad news (no transaction goes perfect). He was persistent and working very hard to make sure my offer got top consideration. Chris also was present for, I believe, every meeting - viewings, inspection, closing, etc. The guy seemed to take it very personal - I think because he realizes how personal and important of an investment it was for me.

So there you go - this is probably the 2nd review I've ever written. I'm happy to do it though, when it's earned - Chris earned this feedback. Hope it helps you make your decision on a broker." Andy (West Loop)"

""Chris McComas is a solid, trustworthy, dependable and knowledgeable Realtor who made my first home purchase understandable and easy. In all honesty, I had many apprehensions about the purchase in general. But, Chris' astute market knowledge as well as friendly and accommodating personality saw me through the process and got me in a home that I love. So, my experience with Chris reinforces why he's a top Realtor in the Chicagoland area. Long story short, work with him." Courtney (Evanston)"

""Chris, Anne & Jenny were GREAT to deal with! Great follow up, professional, excellent market knowledge. Great team. Communication & follow up was incredible." Stu (River North)"

""Chris and Jennifer were wonderful. Responsive, attentive, extremely well informed and knowledgeable. They were able to find me a wonderful 2 bedroom condo in a market where there were few to no options. Not only were they good at their jobs, they were easily relatable and I felt like I have made two new friends here in Chicago." Anil (West Town)"

"Chris, Anne & Jenny are the best! Great market knowledge, communication & follow up. Awesome people! I highly recommend. Excellent team. I will work them again. Their attention to detail, understanding what I was looking for, on top of new listings, and communicating quickly. Very much appreciate their aggressive approach."

"The market analysis was spot on and we achieved our target price. The communication with Chris's team was clear and every call was answered. The few times I left a voicemail my call was returned within the hour. They made me eel like a priority and I would not hesitate to use them again."

""Exceptional work from Chris and his team. Very responsive, provided great counsel in an area I'm not totally familiar nor comfortable, and extremely knowledgeable. I'm excited to continue working with him in the future." Courtney (West Loop/Evanston)"

""Chris, Anne & Jenny were GREAT to deal with! Great follow up, professional, excellent market knowledge. Great team. Communication & follow up was incredible." Stu (River North)"

""Chris was great and very knowledgeable and helped us find exactly what we were looking for with our first property." Amrita (West Loop)"

"Hardworking, professional and great grasp of all things real estate. Full recommendation."

""I will use Chris again for the resell of my new place and in the search of a new place when the time comes." Bryan (Wicker Park)"

"Chris is simply one of the best. His knowledge, professionalism, patience and advice helped us land a home we plan to be in for decades to come."

"Chris was great to work with. He helped guide us through the process in finding the perfect property. It was a challenging time as a buyer to find a place in a "seller's market". Chris put us in an informed position with his sales analysis for comparable properties. Chris remained diligent and never stopped working to find us a great property at a competitive price."

"Hardworking, professional and great grasp of all things real estate. Full recommendation."

""Chris McComas is brilliant! If you want your property sold in a quick, professional manner, Chris is the realtor to call!" Cathy (West Loop)"

"Chris was fantastic and very patient to work with. I was a single womany buying her first place without any family here. He was able to help me through the process as well as explain questions to my parents who were out of town. I also love how Chris checks in throughout the year and lets me know what is going on with the market etc. I will definitely use his services again in the future."

""Chris is truly a Professional Real Estate Agent! Due to job relocation it became necessary for me to sell my property and timing was critical. Chris agreed to work with my relocation coordinator which required researching real estate comparable sales, market values, etc. Because I was already living in another state, Chris was left with the tasks of marketing, showing and basically maintaining the my opinion he went above and beyond and exceeded all expectations. Throughout the process he was enjoyable to work with. He really took the "lead", being focused, attentive, thoughtful and responsive to all inquiries relating to the property. His efforts paid off since we were able to sell at 98% of asking price and closed in less than 90 days! A diamond in the rough; I wish all agents were like Chris." Michele (West Loop)"

""Chris was the agent that I hired from @properties to help me find a new home. Although I looked at condos for four months, Chris never grew impatient with me. If I didn't like the condos that he showed me one day, the next day he would have other places for me to look at. Purchasing my first home was a very important step in my life, and I couldn't think of a better agent to have helped me navigate the process. Chris was very knowledgeable, encouraging, and professional. I would recommend him to any person who is considering purchasing or selling a home." Jordan (Lake View)"

""Chris was our realtor in finding my brother a single family in the city. He brought us to countless properties for months...answering each email, text or call as quickly as possible and putting up with three very different personalities in my family. I know Chris had plenty of other clients, but with the amount of time he spent with us, I can only presume that he never sleeps. My brother is now in a beautiful single family that had everything (& more) he was looking for. Moreover, I think that a lot of how a deal goes down has to do with the reputation and relationship between realtors. It is clear Chris is well respected in his field, and with good reason. I cannot recommend him highly enough. If you are looking for a realtor you can trust, who has a good pulse on the current market whether buying, selling or renting, you will not be disappointed if you go with Chris.""

""Chris McComas is passionate about what he does. He is reliable, informative, knows the market place, and makes sure he has your best interest in mind when negotiating deals. I had casually discussed with him that I was ready to sell or rent my home. Within 1 week of our conversation, he had a interested buyer, and this ultimately resulted in the successful sale of my home. Chris made the process seamless with no mistakes during the closing process. I highly recommend Chris McComas as a broker!" Ahsley (Fulton Market River District)"

""Chris crushed the apartment search game for us." Ryan (West Loop)"

""Great job by Chris. Professional, courteous, and incredibly responsive. Highest possible recommendation." Arun (Fulton Market River District)"

""Chris McComas did something that's very rare in sales role - he earned my trust. Instead of pushing me towards the wrong place, McComas would actually dial me back when I would find a place that I liked and got trigger happy. His knowledge of Chicago was vast, but more importantly he got me and understood what types of places I would like. He was great." Chris (River North)"
