Chris was an invaluable asset for purchasing my first ever multi-unit investment property. His knowledge of building codes and ability to spot both serious problems in a home and point out potential value-adding aspects sellers aren't highlighting is very useful, and if he doesn't know it, he knows somebody who does. He has a Rolodex of real estate lawyers, mortgage originators, inspectors, contractors, and pretty much anyone you could possibly need to purchase and improve your home.

We toured over 15 properties, ranging in value from $700,000 to $1,300,000 in Wicker Park, Bucktown, River West, Lakeview, and Lincoln Park. He was always able to work within my schedule and never wasted my time (Unlike some of the Chicago realtors I've worked with before). I'm confident that the purchase I made will be a great investment. After some minor renovation I see no reason why it shouldn't cap out over 6.5%!

Compared to the standard Chicago realtor who doesn't know anything about the properties they are showing and are just in it for the commission, I couldn't recommend Chris more. I look forward to using him again to find new renters and my next property purchase.

I had a great experience with Chris Garvey as a buyer in Oak Park. He was not interested in simply making a sale, and really appeared to love showing different places and pointing out the good and the bad. The entire experience, from house hunting through closing, was great. He was always on top of communication, and we were never in the dark about anything. More, everything he told us to expect was accurate. My wife and I highly recommend to anyone searching for a new home and real estate agent.

We were looking for investment properties in Chicago and the western suburbs and found what we think is the best agent we could have ever found. Chris Garvey helped us search through hundreds of properties and gave us honest and accurate assessments of many, many homes and mult unit buildings. Always ready to help 24/7! Super friendly and always on time too!!! We could not have done it without him. If you are looking for an honest realtor that makes you feel at ease through the whole process, we highly recommend Chris Garvey.

Chris has been a great resource during our search for a home in Oak Park. We spent well over a year looking for a home. Chris was patient and available for showings whenever we requested and sincerely enjoyed viewing and educating his clients on the homes. He provided useful advice based on his experience of showing homes and living in Oak Park. He is also honest and upfront about valuations, neighborhoods and other considerations when viewing and considering a home purchase.

Again a great resource to have when making one of the largest purchases in one's life. Thanks for all of your help.

Chris is the definition of true professionalism. His knowledge of the real estate industry is vast and it shows through his work during the entire process. He is honest and transparent; he makes you well aware of what options you have and what you are getting into. Chris is extremely flexible and is always available to meet or talk and due to the amount of years of experience, he has multiple resources and contacts that a home buyer might need for any questions, issues or concerns that come up! It was a pleasure working with Chris and I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends.

Chris has been much more than a regular agent. He was always available and willing to help. For foreigners like us (we are from Brazil), he was very patient and after the closing, he also helped us to settle down with other aspects, becoming a friend of the family.

Chris Garvey was there for us when we were selling and when we were buying. Chris’s knowledge of real estate, the local market and the way to market in today’s digital world really gave our home prime exposure. We received a fair value for our house thanks to Chris’ efforts in also letting other local realtors know that the house was out there and available for a reasonable price. Because Chris had spent so much time with us as sellers, he also made the perfect real estate agent on the buying side. By the time we got to the house we bought, he was fully aware of what we needed in our final nesting place. He always found time to work with me and both of us are very busy. He introduced us to the possibility of a different location which we would not have looked at and as a result we found a wonderful home at our price.

This was my first experience buying a home and Chris made it completely painless! I can't say enough positive things about my experience with working with Chris. He was incredibly responsive and called me back the first day I demonstrated interest in a property. He set up a day of walkthroughs and gave me his honest opinion of each property. When I decided on the place that I fell in love with, he expedited the offer and reassured me through the process. It's obvious by working with Chris that he loves his job, enjoys working with people, and has many years of experience. I would definitely work with Chris again!

Chris was absolutely fantastic! He was so knowledgeable of the area, and knew exactly what we were looking for. He really helped guide our decision making and was so patient as we saw over 30+ houses with our two young children in tow. We trusted him implicitly and would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a house! After dealing with a number of realtors over the years, Chris was absolutely the best and we will definitely work with him again if the need presents itself.

Chris Garvey was prompt, clear, and respectful from beginning to end. I couldn't recommend him higher. For the sale of our condo, our communication was fluid, he was consistently available for calls, and he made my part very easy. He explained what needed to be explained and handled things accordingly.
I highly recommend working with him.
