Tell Us Your Story

As a first time homebuyer, I really needed someone to patiently walk me through the process.

Chris is so knowledgeable, was always available, and explained things to me in a way that made me feel capable and respected. From beginning to end, he was great at showing me options I liked, negotiating a contract, and answering any questions that came up. I am so grateful for all of his help and advice while purchasing my first home! I highly recommend his services.

My husband and I were referred to Chris by a friend of ours, and we are so ecstatic for i!

We began working with Chris in a more exploratory phase, thinking we would not purchase a home for a few more months. Chris did not place any pressure on us at all, even knowing (or so we thought) that we weren't quite ready to buy a home. He is truly knowledgeable about the community he serves. Chris' insight led us to see a fabulous home, one that we might not have otherwise decided to look at, that we can now call our own! He also is incredibly smart when it comes to home repairs and design. Chris was very strategic when it came time to putting in an offer on our home, which led to us getting an AMAZING price with no negotiations! We had a fabulous business relationship with Chris, and truly feel we gained a friend for life in buying our home!

I was a first time home buyer and had no idea how to go about the process .

I had a previous agent that I felt was pressuring me above my budget as well taking me to listings that I didn’t want to see. Chris was referenced to me so I gave him a shot . One of the best decisions I made . He assisted me in finding a home that I love and can make my own ! I felt very comfortable with him . Chris was very knowledgeable about not only the property, but the area as well as what may need to be fixed. I’m very thankful to have had Chris as my realtor ! I will definitely be referencing him to anyone who is looking!

I highly recommend Chris.

When I first considered buying in Oak Park, I met with a few agents, and I have to say that none came close to Chris's general knowledge of the area, the market and his experience. Moving through the buying process was brilliant; I never once felt under pressure, and Chris was always available to view homes or for questions. When it came to making the offer, Chris is definitely the guy you want on your side.

We really enjoyed working with Chris.

Chris grew up in the area and has an amazing knowledge of the buildings and history. He was super responsive, day or night, to any and all of our questions. Chris was always willing to give us suggestions, but when we made a decision he was 100% supportive even if it wasn't his suggestion, and bent over backwards to make it work. He really made sure the whole process went smoothly, from our first searches to closing day. My wife and I would highly recommend Chris!

Chris did a terrific job helping us buy a foreclosed house needing a lot of work a year ago.

He was very persistent on getting the contract finalized. He also was a wealth of information on the process and provided excellent professional resources along the way ( inspector , mortgage broker , lawyer ). I would HIGHLY recommend Chris for your real estate agent.
