Our job is done when excitement outweighs challenge. Our deep experience has helped countless people do this - let us do the same for you!”
Born and raised here as a 4th generation Chicagoan, Chris brings deep perspective to Chicago and its neighborhoods. Having recently served on the Board of the Lakeview Chamber of Commerce, Chris is passionate about the City as a place to work and live. Chris came to real estate after a notable career in professional sales. Starting in sales at Ameritech, Chris was named Rookie of the Year for the entire company. Later in another role at Microsoft, he was personally recognized by Steve Ballmer for making key inroads for MSN.com across the Midwest. These powerful experiences are part of the reason Chris was named the #1 new agent at the largest residential real estate office in the country his first year in the real estate and has gone on to accomplish the following in the business:
• Repeatedly named among the Top 100 agents in Chicago and top 5% nationally

Christy understands the difference between “developer” and true “custom” finishes and can help clients see past the badge on the appliances to determine if a property is really “well done” which translates into price, and importantly, re-sale value.
