Testimonials

Buyer "Would strongly recommend!"

"We had a very positive experience with Christine Lee and would strongly recommend her for buyers in this area! Christine’s knowledge of the market is amazing and her style is very accommodating for buyers. Specifically, Christine would offer relevant factual information coupled with an open communication style that made us feel comfortable asking any question, any time. She also demonstrated a firm, professional communication style when representing us. Additionally, Christine is well connected to the various other players in the space and provided great suggestions when engaging the other parties involved in the closing process. We appreciate working with Christine on our purchase and feel glad to have met her!"

- Mike and Val, Hawthorn Woods Country Club

Seller "She took charge!"

"Christine took charge from the minute I asked her to represent us on the sale of our home. We live in California and could not be there to show the house. She took pictures, coordinated all showings and was present to represent us. Christine also provided expertise in negotiating the best price for our home. The best part she kept us informed all the time. We always knew when the house showings were and she kept us up to date on progress from the potential buyers. I am very fortunate that Christine represented us and certainly recommend her to anyone interested in selling their home."

- Harold and Joyce, Hawthorn Woods

Buyer "Epitome of professionalism, organization and efficiency."

"Christine is the epitome of professionalism, organization, and efficiency. Her knowledge of the current market helped us find our house in a very short period of time. She not only knew the specific requirements of the market, but also handled the transaction with attention to detail to fulfill the needs of her clients. We will recommend Christine to anyone looking for a qualified agent.

Christine, thank you so much for all your help with the new house! It has been a wonderful pleasure working with you!!"

- Tod, Hawthorn Woods

Buyer "Found on Zillow."

"We had found Christine Lee on Zillow when searching for a home. From day one she has knocked our socks off. Her level of professionalism I would rank a 10! No matter how busy, she would always respond within the same day even if it was late in the evening. She has a positive and aggressive go getting attitude. We bought a short sale home which lasted 5 months and she kept on all parties to close the deal. We love our home!!! I have and will continue to refer her to all our friends in the market!!"

- Derrick and Michelle, Palatine

Buyer "We were new to the area."

"Working with Christine was fantastic. We were new to the area and I really felt comfortable depending on her knowledge of the area. She was always very quick to respond to any and all of our questions. She is very knowledgeable on all different aspects of the home buying process. When it came time to negotiating I felt like she was able to argue our case and get us the house we wanted at the price we wanted. Very good experience and I would highly recommend her!"

- Jeremy and Kristin, Grayslake

Seller "Known since 2009."

"We have known Christine Lee since 2009 and she is the best. We had terrible tenants in our house before Christine worked with us. The tenants moved out and our house needed a lot of repair work to get it back in shape in order for us to rent the house again.
We live in Arizona and being our house was in Illinois, of course we were not able to travel back and forth to fix our house. Christine was wonderful and worked above and beyond our expectations to help us get our house back in good condition to rent. Our house ended up needing new carpeting and plumbing repairs in the crawl space for the sump pump, and tile work needed to be repaired in the bathroom. Christine hired the appropriate people to do the repair work and picked out carpeting and made sure everything was taken care of. She called us constantly to let us know what needed to be done and get our approvals on everything. The house was back in good condition within 2 months.
While we had renters, Christine managed our property for a year making sure the rent was paid and the house was remaining in good condition. After a year the renters informed us that they had to move do to their financial situation so we had Christine list our property for a short sale. Christine took care of everything working with the appraiser and us listening to her expertise at what we needed to list our house at in order to find a buyer. A buyer put a bid in on our house and our house was sold in a short sale.
We highly recommend Christine Lee; she is very professional, honest and gave us the best advice regarding pricing our home to get a buyer. We highly recommend Christine to be your realtor.

- Jay and Terri

Seller "Indebted to Christine."

"I cannot speak highly enough of Christine. She was our realtor and also our rental manager - and went above and beyond in both capacities. We worked with Christine at probably the worst time in living memory for selling a house - and for being a realtor - and yet Christine never flagged. She kept our spirits up, stayed in touch and worked with various parties to help get our house sold. We are indebted to Christine and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her wholeheartedly."

- Nelson, Hawthorn Woods

Sellers "I never give 5 stars, but in this case..."

"I NEVER give 5 stars, but this is a case where the agent deserves every star. Christine was remarkable. Her energy and enthusiasm in her work is contagious. She will go the extra mile for you. Be prepared for her to be brutally honest, even if it hurts a bit. After 17 years and raising three kids in our house, we were emotionally attached (although we denied it). But she truly understands the market (and comps in your area) and what you need to do to get your house ready for sale. She understands that she works for you first. It was a pleasure to work and I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home. Her negotiating was always in my best interest. She is a true professional."

- Rob and Marta, Lake Zurich

Tenants "She has the knowledge and extensive experience."

"Christine Lee helped my husband find a rental when we moved to Illinois and she assisted the owner of our rental in finding a new renter when we moved from that property to another state.

In helping my husband locate the property she was not only knowledgeable regarding the area but was extremely astute in understanding what type of property we required and was direct in communicating with the owner to help us acquire it under good terms.

When we moved three years later we had to break our lease a few months early because of a new job. We were busy finding a place in our new location, out of state and she wholeheartedly jumped in to help us find a renter to assume our obligation. The house was not in showing condition so she went in and completely staged the house in a very appealing manner. She even watered my houseplants! Which shows that she is not only very efficient and highly capable but also kind and generous in her dealings.

In summation, Christine Lee has the knowledge, communication skills and extensive experience in real estate sales and rentals to represent a buyer, seller or renter in whatever capacity you may need. She honestly completes your request to the best of her ability and represents you as she would herself."

- Jim and Meredith, Hawthorn Woods

"She had our best interests in mind."

"When my husband and I decided that we wanted to move, we contacted Christine to help us find a rental. In two days she found us a house that was exactly what we wanted. In just a couple of days she negotiated a great deal for us and we moved in into our dream house. At all times she represented us in our best interests, and guided us through a whole process. Because we had such a great experience with her, we will never work with any other agent in the future. We and all our friends know about her skills and she is the only agent for us!"

- Maya, Barrington

Buyer "Most professional Realtor I have ever used."

"This was my 5th house purchase and Christine is the best and most professional realtor I've used. All my messages were answered promptly. She was very patient helping me find what fit my needs best and she understood that if a house looked right in the ad that it might not be right for me. She was also very good at knowing what resources were available for financing and which one fit my needs best. Finally, she had a great list of resources available such as painters and remodelers for me to use after I moved. I would recommend Christine to anyone interest in buying or selling a house."

- Dan, Vernon Hills

Buyer and Seller "Sold in 5 days!"

"We had a great experience with Christine. We can't say enough good things about her! She helped us sell our house in only 5 days! Then she helped us find our dream home. She is dedicated 110% to her job and clients. You will love Christine for her patience, honesty and caring personality. There is NO better realtor out there then Christine Lee!!!"

- Rob and Holly, Long Grove & Northbrook

Buyer and Seller "Enthusiastic, knowledgeable, responsive"

"Christine is everything you look for in a real estate agent - enthusiastic, knowledgeable, responsive, and honest. She helped us list our home as well as find a new home in the area. She is up to date on the best ways to market on your home - with a special focus on internet selling - which is critical in today's market. She was extremely skilled in the negotiation process and followed up on every aspect of the buyers financing to ensure the deal closed. We ended up selling and buying a new home in 55 days! We would recommend Christine to anyone buying or selling a new home!"

- Tammy, Hawthorn Woods & Lake Zurich

Buyer "This is the realtor you want to have!"

"Wow. Christine is awesome. Pretty stressful time in my life buying a place post divorce. She was with me to the end. Following up on lawyers, title companies, mortgage brokers etc...In my experience other realtors have limited contact once the offer and acceptance is done. Christine made sure all parties where on their toes up to and including closing. (which she attended by the way) This is the realtor you want to have!"

- Tom, Hawthorn Woods

Buyer "Over and above."

"Christine went over and above what was needed from an agent for a standard real estate transaction.

My mother was the actual buyer and needed a lot of guidance and reassurance and TLC throughout. Christine was always patient and accomodating."

- Allan, Barrington

Buyers and Sellers "Great contacts..."

"After seeing numerous houses Christine helped us find an amazing house. She had great contacts for the home inspection and spent hours with us at the house to make sure everything went well. She worked crazy hours to make this buy/sell happen. She is very energetic and does not back down. She definitely will have your back. I really can't say enough about Christine. We are grateful to have had her as an agent."

- Kevin and Lisa, Hawthorn Woods & Mundelein

Buyers "Chris listens to what you want."

"Christine Lee is the best agent we ever could have hoped for. She was attentive and entirely in tune with what kind of house we needed. Never once did we feel rushed or pushed into making a decision--she let us take our time, and it was clear that she was really "our" agent, instead of just someone trying to get us into a purchase. There's no one that knows this area better than she does. She really helped us evaluate each home with an eye towards how the choice would affect our lives, whether it was our commutes to work, distance from our child's school, or just how happy we would be in a particular neighborhood. She helped us see positive and negative factors in each house that we saw, things that as relatively new homebuyers, we never would have thought about on our own. She's also just about the nicest person you will ever meet, which is important when you are looking for an agent. You want someone who you can talk to honestly, confide in, someone who is on your side. Chris is the one for all of that. She will walk you through every step of the process, she'll listen to what you want, and she has the foresight to know what you need. Her negotiation skills are fantastic--she got us what we wanted at a price we could afford. Moving can be stressful. Chris made the entire experience enjoyable for us, and we continue to stay in contact. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home. In fact, I wouldn't recommend anyone else. She helped us find our dream house and we have no intention of moving anytime soon, but if we ever did, she's the only one I would trust.

- Tom and Maya, Long Grove

Seller "Honest and straight forward."

"Great to work with, strong communication skills, easy to do business with, makes her committments, and provides honest, straight-forward information. The best real estate we ever worked with."

- Ted and Chris, Hawthorn Woods

Buyers "From start to finish..."

"I recently closed on my home in October with Christine. Outstanding agent to say the least. From start to finish I could tell I was in good hands with someone who actually cared. Someone willing to go the extra mile and put forth additional effort to get the job done right.

My transaction flowed as smoothly as possible because of her. The only reason my home closed was because of Christine determination and professionalism. Every obstacle we encountered she was steps ahead with a solution. Definitely someone you want working for you! I loved how she was always available and made me feel like I was her only client.

Selecting an agent can be difficult when there are so many out there, but I am so fortunate to have found Christine. She is truly a remarkable agent. I highly recommend Christine to anyone that is looking for an agent. You wont be disappointed!"

- Jarett and Jamie, Fox River Grove

Buyers "Available to answer questions."

Buyer "She gave us confidence."

"Christine is just about the best thing that could have happened to us. She knows the area, knows what to look for in a home and neighborhood. She didn't just send listings to us; she really thought about what we needed and helped us focus our search. She asked all of the right questions of sellers, and alerted us to things that we never would have thought of. She was always around to answer our dumb questions and provide advice. She's far more than just someone who helps you find a house. She's exceptionally talented, and she has a personal touch that really gives you confidence that you've made the right choice. We highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell."
