"Christie came highly recommended by our mortgage broker and she has exceeded our expectations in every way. Despite her undoubtedly busy schedule, she quickly responds to us and accommodates our last minute requests. Purchasing a home over the holidays can be tricky, yet Christie still managed to generate showing schedules on very short notice. She is extremely familiar with the market and can see the renovation potential in older homes as well. Having lived in both the city and now the suburbs, Christie added a very personalized touch to our home search. We were hesitant to leave the city, but she eased our minds immediately and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Christie’s accommodating nature was further emphasized by her ability to thoughtfully answer our questions all while helping us wrangle our four small children during showings. We are thrilled with our home purchase and are looking forward to working with Christie as we prepare to list our city home."


"I could not have been happier with my experience with Christie! Christie is very knowledgeable about the market, has excellent negotiation skills, and is always very responsive. I highly recommend her to anyone!"


"Christie sold our condo that we had been renting for 5 years. She suggested all the right things to ensure a fast sell. Every question was answered and she walked us through the entire process . We got a great price and could not be happier !"


"Christie is amazing! She did a walk through of our home and offered some tips on decluttering and rearranging furniture to make our home more "show-ready". I appreciated and valued all of her feedback. In the end, she sold our home in 24 hrs!!!! If you're looking for a realtor who is extremely knowledgeable in this field, and has a good eye to help you see a home in new ways, she's your lady! She truly is one of the best realtors in the field."


"Christie knows the market extremely well and takes the entire real estate process off of her clients shoulders. We’ve worked with Christie on both of our real estate transactions and have been extremely satisfied with her responsiveness, knowledge, client first attitude, and overall results."


"Christie helped us buy our first home and then recently helped us sell our home. Both experiences were fantastic! She spent a lot of time with us making sure we understood the process as well as ensuring we found the right home. We couldn't be more thrilled to recommend her (and have already done so) and will continue to do so in the future!"


"Christie was amazing to work with. She sold our home masterfully and quickly. She made the whole process easy and gave great advice along the way. She was fantastic and I would highly recommend her."


"Christie is simply great. With her help, we found a townhome in Avondale shortly after beginning our search. We were up against 8 offers and her knowledge/expertise and negotiating skills helped us secure the contract. She came highly recommdended and lived up to it! She has also a keen eye for improvements to maximize equity. We will continue to use her going forward."


"Christie is a true professional. I have used her for multiple transactions and have never been disappointed. In fact, I am always impressed with how easy - and fun - she makes the whole process."


"Christie is amazing! She's helped me purchase a home in the city and is great at reading her clients and helping them focus their search - finding properties that meet their needs. She's very attentive throughout the process. Highly recommend!!"


"We've used Christie for multiple transactions while in Chicago and also for Chicago properties while out of state. Prior to meeting her and in another state we have worked with other real estate professionals. We can say with great conviction that she is simply the best and the only person we'll ever work with in Chicago. In addition to all the requisite local knowledge, fact-based analysis, etc. - what separates her is her ability to read and relate to the people involved in these transactions, sussing out sincere buyers / other parties and inferring intent, seriousness, potential to be difficult to work with, etc. Thus far she has delivered fantastically for us every time."


"Christie was AMAZING to work with in our new construction purchase from search to close. She found us the perfect home, in the perfect neighborhood and made the process very smooth. During our search, she was able to get us access to it before it was even on the market. We feel incredibly lucky that she found us this house. We love it here and highly recommend her for a new construction purchase."


"We recently sold our home and bought a new one, and Christie helped us on both ends. Things got tricky when the first offer on our place fell through at the last minute; our new place was contingent upon selling our first place, so the situation was quite stressful. Christie kept all parties happy throughout the process and made sure we were able to find a new buyer and get our dream home. She was also very responsive to questions and a good communicator throughout. Highly recommended!"


"We were selling a rental property from out of state and knew that challenges would ensue and that Christie would need to help lead the process. We spoke upfront before listing the property and Christie was up for the challenge. Her knowledge of the market as well as connections with local third party handy man made us feel confident Christie could take on the challenge. We were not disappointed and ultimately sold the property at a price we felt good with. Christie was very prompt and did not let issues or follow linger. I would highly recommend Christie on either the buy or sell side and she has also helped us managing the rental property through the years."


"Everything was handled perfectly from start to finish. Was able to handle difficult buyers with ease and finesse. Would very highly recommend for buying or selling"


"I worked with Christie and team members Sonia and Kirsten. Having a team work with you means extra eyes, team collaboration and extra attention! Their knowledge of the home selling process was very evident and was clearly explained to me, extremely detailed, and honest. The follow-up after showings were timely and professional. I highly recommend this team as they made this hard process quite easy!"


"We recently used Christie for both the sale and purchase - both experiences were excellent! She provided great advice on staging our house, really knew the neighborhood and on point with our pricing, which led to an extremely quick sale. Christie was a great partner to work with - down to earth, responsive, knowledgeable - we'd definitely recommend her and use her services if we were in the market to move or purchase again."


"Christie helped us both sell our condo as well as purchase our new home. She is incredible at her job. She's a talented negotiator and can certainly be tough but most importantly she's realistic. She kept me sane during a very stressful process and I could not have asked for a better broker."



"Christie helped navigate through buy and then selling my first home. She was able to simplify what would have been an overwhelming process into something that was enjoyable and stress free.

During the buying process we looked at countless homes, but Christie was able to get to know us and pinpoint exactly what we were looking for. I would definitely recommend her to anyone, and will use her again myself in the future."



"Christie sets the bar for 'good' in everything she does. Communicating with us, aggressively negotiating our deal and always following up with other party for their response. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone for her professionalism."



"Working with both Christie and Kirsten was an all around great experience from start to finish. They worked quickly to execute what we desired in order to get our home on the market as soon as possible. Their photographer took amazing photos of our place, which is the most essential part of getting people through your doors. With all their marketing efforts, overseeing an open house and prompt second showings, we were under contract after being on the market for just seven days.

Communicating with Kirsten and Christie was seamless. They were available to us via phone, email or text whenever we had any questions and responded to us quickly.

What I appreciated most was a sense of peace knowing that Christie and Kirsten were doing everything in their power to get our home sold as soon as possible. Their knowledge of the neighborhood, professional experience and glowing track record enabled us to trust them. Just as we were, they were highly motivated to sell our home."



"Christie is the best! She guided my family through the home selling process, and I will never look to anyone else for my real estate needs. Christie and her team are top notch; I cannot thank them enough!"



"Christie and her team are absolutely amazing. She doesn't rush you or pressure you- instead she gives you everything you need to know to make an informed decision. She wants what is best for you and your family and she will work tirelessly to make that happen. Throughout the entire process, Christie made sure we knew what was happening and what to expect next. We absolutely loved working with Christie and her team."



"Christie Ascione was fantastic. Extremely efficient and great at communicating with me regarding the status of my residence. She provided great recommendations and feedback and her support was really appreciated. I will definitely use her in the future and recommend her to others."



"Christie is amazing and I highly recommend her - she was great to work with and truly a good person. She showed us a lot of places and truly took the time to get to know our needs."



"Simply put ... Christie is absolutely amazing. She doesn't rush you or pressure you or try to "sell you" on a house. She truly wants you to find what is best for you and your family and she will work tirelessly to find that home for you. Throughout our home buying experience, Christie kept us up to date on the process and was always our advocate. We had a particularly long process and at the end of it, Christie isn't just our realtor, she's truly our friend! We love Christie and sincerely appreciate her help in bringing us to our new home!! We couldn't be happier!"



"Christie is extremely professional and helpful in all aspects of the buy or sell. I am lucky to have had her by my side for multiple transactions, and each time she proves to us just how knowledgeable she is about the market, and how effective she is in dealing with the other side of each deal. Christie treats her clients with respect, and is passionate about getting the best place for you and your life. She is extremely personable, easy to talk to, and a great broker to rely on in stressful situations. I couldn't recommend working with her more!"



"Christie was so helpful throughout the buying process. I was a first-time buyer, so had many questions that she was able to answer right away, and she was proactive about explaining everything to me each step of the way so I felt prepared. She showed us great properties, and never tried to push us into making any decisions. She genuinely wanted us to find the right space for us at the right price!"



"Christie is fantastic to work with. We had a bit of an unusual situation in that we had identified the property we wanted before contacting a broker, but once she began working with us she was the consummate professional. She did a fantastic job negotiating and was extremely responsive to any of our needs. She is very candid when you ask for her advice and you truly feel she is looking out for your best interests. I feel it's very important to trust your broker, and we certainly trust Christie. We've now worked with her on the seller and buyer side and would recommend her to anyone looking for an agent in Chicago. She is a pleasure to work with."



"Christie was a phenomenal agent for us throughout our year-long process of trying to buy a condo in the West Loop. She is professional, motivated, efficient, smart and responsive - in short excellent in every way. We would not have found our perfect place without her. She knows the Chicago market well. Highly recommended!"



"We have worked with Christie on the buyer side (once) and seller side (twice) and every experience was great. She is top notch at what she does: very responsive, extremely knowledgeable, and patient to answer questions and walk us through the sales process.
Both places we were selling sold in a week or less for what we wanted or more. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone that is looking to buy or sell to Christie!"



"As a first time home-buyer, It was very important for me to work with a realtor that understood my needs and made me feel comfortable through the whole process. I had a meet and greet session with Christie, where she simply took the time to explain the home-buying process. I walked away from this meeting, with all the information I needed to get me started and felt incredibly at ease knowing that I would be working with Christie. Once I was ready to go, Christie worked with my non-traditional and very busy schedule to see many places around the city. As we worked together, Christie got to know me better as a client and quickly used what she learned about me to tweak the details that led me to find a place that I absolutely love. I had a fairly short closing process, and during period, we ran into a few challenges, and what I appreciated the most about Christie, is that she always helped me find a solution with a great sense of urgency to ensure we closed on time! Even after closing on my new home, I continue to hear from Christie and her team to ensure that I have settled in and all is going well. I certainly recommend Christie to anyone who is looking to buy/sell a home. Her knowledge of the industry along with her friendly but assertive personality make Christie a great person to work with!"



"Christie really got us. My husband and I are quirky people with interesting taste, after the second time out she really understood what WE were looking for. She had great knowledge of neighborhoods and found us the perfect place!"



"Without Christie we would not have acquired our dream home. I mean that truly. As first time home buyers in a very hot and competitive market, she helped guide us every step of the way. Her communication skills with both us and the sellers’ realtor were top notch. She was overly responsive whenever we had questions and a creative problem solver as well. We walked away from this experience feeling confident about our purchase. I would recommend Christie to any friend or family member in a heartbeat."



"Great overall experience. Quick response to questions, knowledgeable and were there to overlook and make sure every step throughout transaction was smooth."



"Christie is a seasoned real estate agent, who gave us clear instructions for keeping our home ready for staging and choosing the right price and time for listing our home in the market. We had 12 showings on the first weekend, that the home was put on the market and we had an offer for the listed price, which we accepted and closed in 1 and 1/2 months. Christie explained the steps and clarified all our questions/concerns from the day our home was listed to the day we closed in a timely fashion. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to sell their home quickly and for the right market price."

I will always look to her for my real estate needs, and highly recommend her as a Broker and a person. The members of her team, including Kirsten, were also top notch and were always available to support my needs. Thank you all again!"


"Christie was great to work with--direct, knowledgeable, and asked all the right questions. I didn't want to waste my time seeing 100s of places, and Christie was good about giving me pros and cons on listings and never pushed me to see things I didn't want to see. We spent about 4 hours total looking at places and I just closed on the perfect place, in the perfect location, under budget, and can't believe it all went so smoothly!"

"Christie was fantastic. Not only was she extremely responsive to our requests, she was also very patient with us as we tried for over a year to buy in to a very competitive neighborhood. After many months, we figured she'd given up on us (we were about to!), but she stuck around, and eventually we found the perfect place for our family! Not only that, she was able to negotiate a very reasonable price for us. Most importantly, she was always available to answer questions. No matter what time of the day, she would answer our emails almost immediately. As first time buyers, it was really reassuring to have someone like Christie on our side."



"Our broker was Kirsten Gettings, not Christie Ascione. Kirsten was terrific though. Very helpful and very responsive to questions and concerns."

Christie really listened and cared about my husband and I and what we were looking for. She was extremely responsive to phone calls and e-mails and was always professional. I have referred Christie to others and I know they are/were very happy with the referral! I can't say enough good things about her-if you are looking for an awesome realtor-contact Christie!"



"Christie was unbelievably amazing throughout the entire process. She was patient, supportive, extremely knowledgable and so much fun to be around! I could not be happier with my buying experience, and I plan to recommend her over and over again!"



"Our experience working with Christie Ascione, as our realtor, has been nothing short of exceptional. This was our first time purchasing a home so we were obviously nervous about the process. She took the time to know us, as well as our needs and wants for a new home. She has a vast knowledge of workmanship and quality when it comes to evaluating a home. Her communication and flexibility with us has been outstanding. She knows when to push us on a decision that needs to be made in a way that makes us feel very comfortable. She was reassuring when we felt our search was coming up empty. One of her greatest qualities is her persistence. This became very evident when the dream home she helped us secure was set on fire by roofers a week before our close. We still pursued this home for a few months and it became a very long and drawn out process. Christie has been there 100% of the time supporting us and communicating on our behalf with the owners to ensure that the repairs and our eventual closing will go off without a hitch. She bent over backwards helping us find temporary housing until the repairs can be completed. We eventually decided to let the "Fire House" go and pursue another option as we could see no end in sight. Christie was amazing at moving quickly to find us our new dream home. Not more than a week or two after we let the other house go, we were under contact on the ONE! Our situation was very unique and I'm not sure how many other agents would handle a situation such as ours, but Christie has been there for us the whole time. We cannot say enough about her and would recommend her to anyone. She can handle everything that comes at her, including fire. :)Sincerely,Ryan and Holly Nelson"

"Christie is incredible at her job. She's a talented negotiator and can certainly be tough but most importantly she's realistic. She kept me sane during a very stressful process and I could not have asked for a better broker."



"Christie is a consummate professional who met our very demanding requirements. Would highly recommend her to anyone needing representation."



"Christie Aschione was extremely accommodating and knowledgable about our house buying process. As first time buyers, Christie helped us understand the intricacies of a house hunt, negotiation, and the closing procedures. Christie was available and easy to communicate with - whether it was a text, email, or phone call, she always got back to us quickly and supported us with any questions or concerns we had."



"Christie sets the bar for 'good' in everything she does. Communicating with us, agressively negotiating our deal and always following up with other party for their response.I would recommend her to anyone and everyone for her professionalism. You are lucky to have her in your company.Danny HughesThompson Flanagan"
