Buying a Home in the Oak Park Area?

I show homes 7 days a week and short notice is okay. Remember, you do not have to be "buying now" to go see a home. The best way to get to know the different neighborhoods, home styles, and find answers to your questions is to go out and tour homes with me.

My approach to you is one of friendly conversation about the area and its homes with a long-term perspective towards finding you the right investment in your future. Take your time getting to know the neighborhoods, home styles, and what makes Oak Park, River Forest, Elmwood Park and other areas a great place to live.

By the way, I also help buyers and sellers in the Chicago neighborhoods of Lakeview, Andersonville, Uptown, Lincoln Park, Ukrainian Village, Logan Square, Gold Coast, Loop, and the western suburbs.

Create your own custom search criteria or contact me and I will set you up with an interactive web page and a customized search that will keep you up to date with the current inventory of homes and provide you with instant notifications whenever a new home that fits your criteria comes on the market. Your interactive web page allows you to keep track of homes that interest you, schedule a tour of a home(s), ask questions or make comments on a home, and eliminate homes that don't interest you. My clients love these features and say that it makes it much easier to stay organized and sort through home inventory as it changes throughout the year.

  • Schedule a tour right from your phone or computer by clicking on the "Schedule a Visit" icon.
  • Receive new properties on your phone/email the instant they become available.
  • Mark homes "interested/favorite" and ask me questions about homes from your own interactive web page right from your phone or computer.
  • Easily schedule a home tour at a time that is convenient for you. Short notice is ok!
  • Keep track of the homes in your area of interest with instant notification of price changes and sales.

Not ready to buy, but interested in learning more about Oak Park, Illinois & the surrounding communities?

Chris Garvey was born in Oak Park and has lived in Oak Park and River Forest for over 50 years. These villages also offer a variety of home styles within a price range of $200,000 to over $3 million.

Understanding what drives pricing and valuation of a home can be confusing. Chris’s suggestion is to take your time and see as many homes as you can, not to buy, but to learn about the community, home styles, and amenities that particular locations have to offer. Using the interactive web-page and Touring with Chris Garvey is a fun learning experience with a top rated professional. Chris not only grew up in the neighborhood, he taught at the high school, lived in over nine different homes in Oak Park and River Forest, has extensive experience in rehabbing/remodeling homes, and is one of the top rated realtors in the area.
