When you go with a realtor vs. trying to sell by owner, you want a realtor who is in tune with everything going on in the marketplace and who can provide many options. That’s why we liked working with Chris. She was very creative at marketing our home in ways we’d never even considered; she’s always thinking outside of the box. Even more importantly, she doesn’t ‘push’ but really listens to the needs and desires of her clients. Not only was Chris extremely knowledgeable and solution-oriented when we ran into a problem, she was always there for us day or night. We were confident Chris would always have our back, which is why we used her again for a second real estate transaction and highly recommend her.

I’ve had a lot of experience in buying and selling homes. So, I feel I know a lot about real estate. Chris was recommended to us by Waukesha State Bank when we were ready to downsize for the second time to a smaller Waukesha condo so we could spend more time in Florida. And, I found out she’s even better than I am at this. Chris helped us sell our condo, getting five offers in a short period of time, three of which were above asking price. Then, even though we’d looked at many condos ourselves, she found a perfect one that met all our criteria. Within 72 hours, we had an accepted offer. Not only does Chris have great people skills, she’s resourceful, a hard worker and has fabulous attention to detail. She knows how to listen and doesn’t push or oversell. She not only gives good advice, she helps clients make good decisions. My recommendation is, find a realtor you can trust, like Chris. And when you get good advice on pricing and offer strategy, listen to it.

Chris was actually the third realtor I worked with. Other realtors sent listings that only marginally matched my unique criteria, but she was the first one who really listened to me. Chris realized I was looking for my dream “home” and not just a “property”. She treated my search as though it were her own and did it through my eyes. She also looked out for my best interests – advising me on the pros and cons of the properties I looked at and sharing important tips such as subtle cues that could indicate structural issues. This saves her clients a lot of trouble, aggravation and money.
Chris found the ‘perfect’ home for me at one point but the seller wouldn’t negotiate a lower price. Regretfully, I walked away from that property, but a year later, she called to say it was back on the market and at a better price. Without telling me, she’d continued to watch that home and immediately saw when it came on the market again. I toured it immediately, made a successful offer and am blessed today to be living in my dream home. Chris is a realtor who truly marks her own success by fulfilling her clients’ goals…not just by making a sale.

We had no idea there were so many details involved in buying a home and selling another. So we decided to go with an experienced realtor to ensure we didn’t miss anything and had someone who would always put our interests first. That person was Chris. Once Chris got to know us and our goals, she consistently gave us good advice throughout both processes. And that’s when Chris became more than a realtor for us – she became a trusted advisor. There was no detail so small that she didn’t take care of, always with the goal of saving us time and avoiding headaches. Her attention to detail and willingness to always put us first, not just go after her commission, was invaluable.
