A friend suggested we must use Cris Epstein if we are going to move to Oak Park and we are thrilled by this excellent referral! We just purchased a house using Cris Epstein in the Oak Park area. Cris is truly one of the best agents we have ever worked with. (This is our 5th home purchase so we have worked with many agents.) Cris did an excellent job educating us on the various areas and different developments. She is very knowledgeable about not only the neighborhoods, but the different floor plans and models, as well as the community as a whole. We sold our home and had a narrow window to find a new house in Oak Park. Cris worked so hard for us and took the time to truly understand what we liked and didn't like, and what was important to us, so we didn't waste time looking at houses that were not going to work for us. Cris also never pressured us but was a great sounding board as we looked at various homes. She was also willing to meet us last minute or late at night if we needed to go see a house. Cris constantly educated us and sent us new listings and got us in even before they were on the market. She "worked" the area for us and went above and beyond. Cris also helped us better understand the market and the comps in an area we were not familiar with. With limited inventory, Cris found us our dream home (and it wasn't even on the market at the time). We highly recommend her. She will do what it takes and put in the hours needed rather than just try to make the next fast sale. Cris also is most professional during negotiations and will push where appropriate for her client. She is smart and hard working and made a very stressful experience that much easier. She earns every penny of her commission and then some! We are thrilled in our new home and would highly recommend Cris!
