Bought a Condo home in 2013 in Logan Square, Chicago, IL.
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.
Chris was most helpful and his follow up was impressive. Honest and knowlwgable about all northside neighborhoods. He asked many questions so he could really narrow down in on my needs and wants for a residence and specific neighborhood that I would be most happy living in. He walked me thru the pro's and cons of all the properties I viewed and that really made a difference in the confidence in the choice that I made.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Wicker Park, Chicago, IL.
Chris helped us buy a condo in Wicker Park in late 2013. He was very knowledgeable with properties in this neighborhood which helped us to make an offer that was quickly accepted.
He was often available to meet with us in person or over the phone to go over any questions we had. Also, he's very easy to talk to and has a great ability to explain things in a way that's easy to understand.
If you're looking to buy a place in the Wicker Park area, Chris can definitely help you out.
Bought a Other home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Cragin, Chicago, IL.
Chris Norton was very professional, knew what he was talking about, able to adjust to our changing requirements and get us into the "must-see" places early enough to be a player in the few "bidding-wars" we got ourselves into (boy the market sure picked up in January - 2013). Along the way, he was very reassuring, and, in the end, we ended up with a solid investment property which we are enjoying living in. We will be seeking a single family home in the near future( within 3 years hopefully), and Chris will be our first call- we hope he is still in the area and selling properties.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Sheridan Park, Chicago, IL.
We actually found Chris while looking at a property he was selling. Although we didn't purchase said property, we weren't a fan of our current realtor and decided to try him.
Chris was very knowledgeable of the areas we were looking, professional, and courteous to the point of going out of his way to transport us home to our apartment that was located on the other side of the city. Along with that was his fantastic personality which made us feel very comfortable while searching for our perfect place.
Even after the sale, he answered questions I had about maintenance on our new home as I was a first time home buyer. He really does go that extra mile to make sure you're taken care of, even when it's no longer required.
Sold a Condo home in 2012 in Humboldt Park, Chicago, IL.
Chris is a great person and realtor. He helped me and my mother find a condo in Chicago in 2012 and also helped us sell that same condo in 2013 for a 40% profit. I give him 5 stars in every category except for negotiation skills. I would have liked him to be slightly more aggressive when we were looking to buy. However, his knowledge of the market is pretty high so maybe he didn't think negotiating a lower price was possible.
Anyone that gets Chris as a realtor will be very happy. He is professional, fast and will get the job done.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Downers Grove, IL.
Christopher was very up-to-date and knowledgeable of current market conditions. He was able to maximize the sale price of our property while quarterbacking the processes with the buyer, banks and attorneys. Chris was great to work with and I definitely will again on future transactions.
Being an out of state investor, I've been very happy working with Chris for the last 2 years. He really knows the market and is very responsive and professional. He's also an excellent negotiator. I've closed 7 transactions with Chris (5 acquisitions and 2 sales) to date and would highly recommend him.
I used Chris to purchase a rental property. His experience showed through his knowledge of the rental property market in Chicago as well as the different neighborhoods throughout the city. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking to find a home or rental property.
