Client Testimonials

"From the very start of my communication with Krysta, I knew I found the right person to help me find exactly what I was looking for. Krysta listened to every detail I mentioned to her and what was important to me when it came to finding my new home and worked hard to make sure every aspect was covered and tailored to my needs. Not only was she passionate and professional about what she does, but she provided a seamless experience for me. Looking for a new home can be tedious and overwhelming but with Krysta working by my side she helped me find exactly what I was looking for! " -Nia M

"Krysta is a fantastic realtor! I was referred to her by a close friend because I was a transplant who had never been to Chicago and didn’t know the neighborhoods. Krysta not only helped me learn the city, but she went above and beyond to prioritize my rental preferences, set up virtual tours with me that she personally visited, created videos and pictures for me to reference back as we searched. She is very organized and prompt with response times (less than a month to find a place and move), following up with landlords/leasing agents, and was able to ease the stress of moving and navigating the Chicago housing market. I love the apartment she found for me, and wouldn’t have been able to get everything I needed without her help. If I could give her more stars, I would. " -Soni B.

" I had one day to look at apartments in Chicago and found Krysta the day before online. Her response time is incredible as well as her attention to detail and organization. She is an exceptional listener, which is why she found me the best apartment. Not only is she great at her job, but she has been very helpful in terms of getting acclimated to a new city where I know next to nothing. Highest recommendation. " -Jessie R.

"Krysta helped me to not only find the perfect apartment, but assisted me with considering my budget regarding various properties. She helped by asking the right questions when we were viewing properties and even assisted with negotiating move-in costs and discounts! Her services were invaluable and I would recommend her to any friend or family member moving to Chicago." -Allison K.

"Krysta is incredibly organized, very responsive and we had a fantastic experience working with her! We initially contacted her to inquire about one of her listings and although that property wasn't a fit for us, Krysta took the time to find out exactly what we were looking for and offered to help us with our search. She quickly shared a number of other properties that fit within our criteria and scheduled tours at each of them. She maintained constant communication throughout the process and even incorporated a few last-minute properties the day before our scheduled tours. She helped facilitate the application process and made things much less stressful for my husband and I. Because of Krysta, we were able to find the perfect home and we cannot thank her enough!" -Julie C.

"Krysta is incredibly thoughtful - truly taking time to understand her clients' preferences and criteria - and translating them into viable, top tier options. Shopping for a new place can be inherently challenging, and I found a genuine partner and collaborator in Krysta. I always felt like she was invested in finding the right place for me, rather than urging me to jump into something that wasn't a perfect fit. As great as she was at building a relationship with me, her client, she also built trust with other stakeholders in the process - ultimately benefitting me when it came time to close. She also went out of her way to be communicative with me, so we could be agile in a competitive market. I have recommended her to several friends and would be thrilled to work with her again!" -Margy E.

"Krysta was absolutely wonderful to work with. She listened to what I wanted and my price range. Then she was extremely patient as we visited multiple places to find one that felt like home. I would highly recommend her expertise!" -Anna P.

"Krysta is a full-service shop, and a calming presence. Knowledgeable, honest, responsive, accurate, careful. Id never work with anyone except for Krysta. Thank you for doing all the hard work. Thank you for being pleasant while doing it. Thank you for helping me find my beautiful new home. You're the best." -Salomon C.
