"★★★★★ "We worked with Chris Bauer to sell our condo in the city and buy a in Wilmette. Throughout the entire process, Chris was always available to answer our questions and deal with any concerns. We truly felt that he treated us as though we were his only clients. He was happy to accommodate our erratic schedule and was always willing to take us out to the suburbs to look at houses, often at short notice.
When we received an offer on our condo he went above and beyond to ensure we reached the deal we wanted. He is extremely patient and showed great diplomacy to complete some difficult negotiations as quickly as possible. He walked us through each stage so we felt completely at ease with every aspect of selling our property and was always one step ahead of us - we quickly learned that there was no need to follow up with Chris as he took care of everything right away. He also knew exactly where we were up to with various inspections and legal matters whenever we called him, which took the pressure off us and made the entire process much less stressful.
We would not hesitate to recommend Chris to anyone looking for a realtor - not only is he outstanding at analyzing data to ensure the best outcome but he also has a true talent for reading people, which we learned was invaluable in this process. He is also a great pleasure to work with. We came to see Chris as a friend and genuinely felt he would have done anything for us to make sure we found a home we would be happy in." - Jo
