My husband and I downsized after our children were grown and rented as we spent 3 years looking for the right next home. We just couldn't find the right place for us that had beauty, functionality and quality. I was frustrated so my friend introduced me to Chris and I switched to her right away. She understood what I wanted immediately and sent me homes to look at online that were right up my alley. I met her to go over more details and we went out that day and found what I'd been hoping for the first day out! She was able to show my husband the next day and the day after she worked with him to offer a price that was much lower than asking but high enough to be appealing. The owner accepted the offer without countering and Chris worked diligently to close the deal. I would suggest her to my closest friends and family. She was professional, knew the area I was interested in and communicated well with me during the process. She continued following up and offered help during and after the purchase. She is top notch. Wish we would have found her 3 years ago!!

Bought a home in 2014 in Logan Square, Chicago, IL 60618.

From the first meeting my husband and I had with Chris, I knew we were in great hands. She is clearly very dedicated, focused, caring about her clients, and most of all- crazy smart. Over the course of our home buying adventure this became extremely clear- watching her work diligently on our behalf to find and negotiate a home that we love. We are endlessly grateful to her for her wisdom, support, and expertise. She never wasted our time in showing us things that weren't exactly what we asked for, instead, she focused on getting us what our family of four wanted and needs.

What was also refreshing, was how she seriously made us feel like we were her top priority at all times- she was always quick to return calls and emails, never made us (who were first time homebuyers) feel like we were asking dumb questions, and had a truly impressive amount of patience.

In the end she negotiated down our dream home into a price point we could afford, and along the way gave us great insight and tips, so we had managed expectations. She was with us every step of the way, and has even checked in since closing to see how we are all doing in our new home. Chris is beyond wonderful and we cannot recommend her enough!!!

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Rogers Park, Chicago, IL.

We were new to buying a home and we couldn't have asked for a better agent to show us the ropes. Chris helped us sort through a number of listings to find the one we wanted. She is very knowledgeable and answers every and any question and will search out the answer if she doesn't have it on hand. We visited and revisited a number of places together which helped us logically compare the spaces we were interested in. At the negotiating table, she went to bat for us like a pro. Chris is an excellent agent and we recommend her highly.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Rogers Park, Chicago, IL.

We worked with Chris to purchase our first home this fall (2014) and had an excellent experience. She worked with us in sorting through property options to determine what we were looking for and provided us with focused and detailed listings that allowed us to look both within our range and beyond to get a better sense of what was possible. She has an expansive knowledge of the area (northside of Chicago) and was able to use that knowledge to help us better understand the housing stock in the neighborhoods we were interested in. Chris patiently and thoroughly walked us through every phase of the purchasing process and was always available to explain things that were unclear to us as first time home buyers. She provided us with referrals for everything we needed for the purchase as well as some initial work on the home, guided us expertly through the negotiation process, and was with us for the closing. I recommend her highly and without hesitation for your real estate needs. She is consummate professional!

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $325K in East Hyde Park, Chicago, IL.

Chris was exemplary in every way: knowledgeable, flexible, empathetic, friendly, savvy in all the right times and places, especially during visits and negotiations with sellers and their agents. We felt we had made friends with a consummate professional.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Albany Park, Chicago, IL.

Just closed on our first home with Chris' expert and caring assistance! She knows her stuff, negotiated a great price for our house, and walked us through the closing process. Plus, she's fun to hang out with while you're out looking at places!

Bought a home in 2013.

Chris took over for a realtor with whom I was very dissatisfied and helped me find a great new home! She researched neighborhoods; sent me condo information that was pertinent; and took me on prospective viewings. I found her help to be invaluable. Chris's professionalism and knowledge really made the purchase process easy. And, she attended my purchase closing with me--truly exhibiting care and concern for her client from the beginning of the purchase process to the end! I highly recommend Chris Stockwell!

Bought a home in 2013 in Humboldt Park, Chicago, IL 60622.

When I started looking to purchase my first condo in Chicago I was referred to Chris Stockwell. I couldnt have had a better agent work with me to help. I was looking for a unique property in various areas of Chicago. Chris was able to help me sort through the market and identify the right property. Her knowledge of the market and the negotiiton process helped me secure a great property that met all of my criteria and close the deal.

Sold a home in 2013 in Humboldt Park, Chicago, IL 60622.

Chris is the person you want if you are interested in having an experienced, focused agent handling your sale. Chris is also an excellent communicator and gave us day by day updates on showings, feedback from prospects and useful input on pricing. The property we listed was an extremely complex, 5-unit building with many positive attribute and many negative attributes. Selling this building for the right price required a lot of work and a lot of skill. Chris gets our full recommendation and a thank you for a job well done.
