What Our Clients Are Saying
Chris has been beyond exceptional since the very beginning. We got in contact with him to be shown numerous condo buildings in the downtown area. Throughout the entire process, Chris has been very quick to respond, never late to any appointments, and extremely knowledgeable of the hundred questions we had as first-time homeowners. Once we found a place we loved (thanks for the numerous listings each week he would send), we put in an offer and honestly the ENTIRE process was smooth, quick, informational, and painless thanks to his help. I've heard horror stories with buying homes, and Chris has been on top of everything and it was truly a very easy seamless from being shown units to signing on closing day (which he showed up to). I highly recommend Chris and believe he has had our best interest since the very beginning and will be recommending him to friends and colleagues looking to buy a new place. Thank you for everything Chris!
Bought a Condo home in 2016 in River North, Chicago, IL.
Chris represented us in the sale of two condos in the last year. We achieved fast, smooth sales with both properties. With one condo in River North and the other in Logan Square, he proved his neighborhood expertise for both. His staging suggestions, professional marketing and industry connections were all key to the success of our sales.
Sold a Condo home in 2016 in Logan Square, Chicago, IL.
This is the second time I have used Chris to buy a 2-4 unit investment property and both times have been great. I was looking for a property in the UK Village / East Humboldt / Logan Square neighborhoods. Chris was very knowledgeable about all of those areas and we spent an afternoon driving around where he showed me the various pockets with anticipated developments and explained any upside/downside to the area. For example, Chris drove me to one intersection and said that a developer had just purchased every building on the block and planned to develop it into several bars/restaurants/shops and that would result in better appreciation/rent potential for any building nearby. Even though I've lived in Chicago 10 years it was very helpful to get the inside real estate information. I eventually decided on a building in Logan Square. Chris was great in walking me through the pros/cons of the building, bidding and negotiation process. He always was available when I had questions once we went under contract he followed up throughout the closing process. I definitely plan to use Chris on my next investment property!
Bought an Investment property in 2015 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.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 in Logan Square, 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.
