Lincoln-Way area Realtor and resident for 27 years.
Christine was great and referred to us by friends. Long story short we sold our
condo in 3 days at asking price. We obviously stayed with Christine on the buy side
and she found us the perfect home for our family. I haven’t met or heard of another
agent who works harder for her clients. Highly recommend!
– Mike, Mokena, IL.
Christine went way beyond to help me sell my parents home. It was a difficult time
for me, she had compassion and I felt very comfortable with her. I thank her from
the bottom of my heart for all she did for me.
– Michelle, New Lenox, IL.
I contacted Christine after two failed attempts with other Realtors for the sale of
my home. She came in and staged the home which was very helpful and was very
good in the negotiation process with the buyers Realtor. I highly recommend her
both the sale and purchase of any home.
– Catherine, Tinley Park., IL.
Christine was outstanding! Very professional, honest, dependable and
knowledgeable. She’s up to date on market and trends, introduced us to to
workman, consignment shops, a great lawyer and was available 24/7. Christine is
a great Real Estate agent and a person that sincerely cares. “ As good as it gets,
and Better than the rest!”
– Patty and Mary, New Lenox, IL.
Your Transitional Living and Senior Real Estate Specialist
We found Christine to be quite professional when handling the sale of our family
home. Since our mother was the seller of the home, Christine met with us a
number of times at the assisted living facility where she resides. Her knowledge
and expertise in the field of Real Estate made for a smooth sale. We would highly
recommend her services to potential sellers.
– Chris and Mark, Tinley Park, IL.
Christine initially contacted me when I cancelled my contract with another
agency. I was unhappy with the services performed and decided I would try to
sell the home myself. After a couple months without success, I met with Christine
and listened to her approach for selling my home.
Christine’s skill set was excellent. She made a few suggestions for minor repairs
and assured me we would be in contact at minimum weekly. She arranged
for very professional photos of my lovely home. Under Christine’s leadership, I
received several offers. One of her greatest strengths is listening to my ideas
and requirements and finding ways to implementing them. Her operational mode
leans toward careful detail planning making certain the process is effective and
fail-safe. In my opinion, Christine would be an excellent addition to your team for
buying or selling your home or business location.
Maureen M. Orland Park, IL.
Looking forward to exceeding your expectations.
