We had a great experience with Chris Norton. We were moving to Chicago from the East Coast, so it was extremely difficult to look at houses, etc. We planned a trip out to go house hunting and Chris was a great host/guide/agent. He was very well-versed in each neighborhood. After he got a sense of our style, he steered us to neighborhoods and areas he knew we'd like. We really couldn't have done it without him.
We ended up doing something very unique. When one offer fell through, Chris offered to look at properties for us and make a preliminary offer based on our approving pics and his judgment. We trusted him so much that we agreed. One of the first places he saw we loved. I flew out to check it out and loved the neighborhood and the place. We live there now and and couldn't be happier.
In addition to being knowledgeable, Chris was very respectful of us and never tried to push us into something we weren't interested in. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a place.
