Kristin takes a balanced analytical approach to residential real estate, combining her expertise with demographics to examine past neighborhood population shifts with her GIS mapping experience to identify future hot spots, all to determine underlining local market trends.  Beginning her real estate career with a top 3 Chicago commercial real estate firm, Kristin brings over many best practices to the residential side of the business, including tiered neighborhood site selection reports for investors, custom presentation-quality amenities maps for sellers, and "Love It or Leave It" home tour guides for buyers.  Kristin's love for the real estate industry is well matched by her love for Chicago.  Born and raised in the city, Kristin has worked, lived, and served in a majority of the 77 community areas, and specifically takes great pride in her knowledge of the city's Downtown and South Side communities.  Kristin listens very closely to the goals of her clients, and uses her knowledge of the real estate market to bring those goals to fruition.  Kristin is encouraging and patient, but firm with her first time home buyers; supportive and fair, but also direct with her experienced sellers.  Kristin believes that all of her clients quickly see that she keeps their best interests at heart.

Kristin has dutifully represented landlords, sellers, investors, buyers, and renters in various Chicagoland communities such as the Gold Coast, Lakeshore East, Streeterville, Printer's Row, Roosevelt Collection, South Loop, Prairie District, Dearborn Park, West Loop, Fulton Market, Hyde Park, Jackson Park Highlands, South Shore, Beverly, University Village, Pilsen, Andersonville, West Rogers Park, as well as Evanston during her early tenure with Koenig & Strey.

Along with the traditional methods of property marketing, Kristin has embraced the use of social media to target and reach a new consumer audience with proven results.  Whether it's utilizing her BowenLuxury Facebook page to get the word out about new construction apartment and condominium developments (such as 1345 Wabash slated for completion in late 2014), her LinkedIn profile to discuss the housing trends resulting from several major HQ relocations in and out of the city, or using Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest to advertise our newest listings, Kristin makes great use of the outlet that social media provides to connect with vast viewers.

Kristin is a proud University of Miami alum, earning her Bachelor of Arts in International Studies, with additional majors in Political Science and Geography.  In her rare spare time, Kristin enjoys playing co-ed flag football, middle distance running, and snowboarding.

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in South Shore, Chicago, IL 60649

Kris Bowen provided my mother and I with great information about a property for sale in our building. We are considering a purchase of the property and Kris would be a stellar agent to retain.

Thanks, Justin Q

Bought a home in 2013 in Howard District, Chicago, IL 60626.

Kris went above and beyond for our first experience as home buyers. I truly recommend her to anyone in the market. She brought us to the houses we wanted to see and had the right questions in hand to lead us to making the right decision.

We connected, but it did not work out.

I hired her to view some condos. There were four condos to be viewed. I only saw one of them. I found Ms. Bowen to be nice and attractive, however, I just found my experience with her to be unpleasant, and I eventually went with another Real Estate Agent. My only issue with her was that all of my appointments were scheduled in the evening (usually around 7:00pm). The other problems with my experience with her, I wasn't sure if it was her fault: At one condo, the keys weren't left for us in the lock box, thus, we were unable to view that condo; the condo that I'm currently attempting to purchase through my current Agent, we weren't able to see with Ms. Bowen, because for some reason, the sellers didn't leave a key with the security guard. For me, I considered those matters to be a waste of time, & they happened during those past summer's heat waves in early August.  More Less
