About Chris

Several of my greatest joys happen at the closing table with a handshake and the sharing of wide smiles, knowing I’ve educated and advocated for my clients, assuaged fears, and just generally managed the process from start to finish. I know in time that my clients will come back to me later to buy and/or sell, and along the way they will refer my name to their friends and family.

At the start, I gauge my clients’ real estate experience and build on that, educating where needed. I am interested in their motivation, their goals, what is working or not working for them in their current digs and what their Dream Home looks like. We create a plan together and execute it.

I have developed strong relationships with attorneys, lenders and various inspectors over the years, always re-evaluating and trying to bring excellence to the team of players that might make up a real estate transaction.

I have 19 years of experience helping buyers and sellers in Chicago, focusing on the city and the northwest side. I have been a top producer for years, servicing all sorts of buyers and sellers, from condos to single family and multi-unit/multi-family dwellings, investments and owner-occupied properties. Prior to my work in real estate, I was a strategic technology consultant, so I bring a no-pressure, consultative approach to the process. I advise and recommend, then obey and advocate for my clients with all my might!

Outside of real estate, I enjoy my family life, outdoor activities like biking and running, gardening, movies, birdwatching and triathlon.

Give me a ring and I’ll do my best for you!


"The house buying process can be crazy, yet Chris is a constant source of no-pressure guidance, professionalism, communication, and clarity. He possesses the fiercest work ethic and holds the interests of his clients above all else. Yet the truly remarkable part is how he does it all with such a pleasant, down-to-earth style." - recent home buyer
