"Our house was our home for 30 years. Kris was extremely kind, knowledgeable and helpful when we finally put our home on the market. She took amazing care of our staging and photography; her brochure was first rate and we could not have asked for better representation! She was appropriate in her pricing and was able to sell our home quickly. The entire process was flawless and non-stressful. We, sincerely, appreciated her tenacity, her understanding of the area, and her gift of making the process seamless. Kris and her team took wonderful care of us, as clients (not just as a transaction) and we are extremely grateful!"
Kris did a great job at following up and getting the property that we have always wanted. Her local knowledge is second to none and we will certainly use Kris again for any future real estate needs."
"Kris listed our home and helped us through the staging and selling process. Both Kris and her team were always available for help and to answer any questions we had. Highly recommend the Kris Berger team!"
"I moved from another country and took several trips to the Hinsdale area to look at houses. The first couple of trips I only worked with listing Realtors® before I settled on one-Kris. She is the fore runner in knowledge of the area and the inner workings of the community, residents, builders, and schools. Kris was instrumental on us choosing houses, location and prices. She has a very down to earth yet professional attitude and really cared about meeting our needs. Now we've been in our house for several months and she still doesn't hesitate to lend her expertise whenever I call. Thanks, Kris! You're the best!"
"We indicated to her a type home in the Hinsdale that would interest us. She very diligently narrowed the options until we found exactly what we wanted. Very satisfied with Kris and the purchase experience!"
"Kris was outstanding. She never gave up even when the market wasn't giving us the feedback we wanted. She was incredibly persistent and ensured that we received the ultimate result our house deserved."
"Kris Berger is, without exaggeration, the best Realtor® my wife and I have ever worked with. Endlessly patient, infinitely helpful and always responsive, she was a true advocate for us every step of the way. Kris was abundantly knowledgeable with the Western Suburbs and a source of endless helpful and specific information about Hinsdale, Western Springs and Clarendon Hills. We had an incredible experience with Kris and found our dream home - for the price we wanted. We, quite literally, can't say enough good things about Kris Berger."
"Kris is one of the best in the business. She sets the bar in all categories of what a real estate professional should be. Her attention to detail is excellent and her approach is very straightforward and transparent. She stayed in very regular (essentially daily) contact via phone and text throughout the initial listing process and corresponded multiple times per day once a contract was in play. Kris is very knowledgeable and great to work with. She is professional and really knows what she is doing. Would definitely use her again and recommend her to all our friends and relatives."
"I was the owner of the property sold and retained Kris to sell the property. Very professional and honest. Great pulse on the market and very willing to assist with every minor detail. Great help with preparing home for sale, including recommending trusted vendors to complete the small items quickly."
"Kris listed and sold my condo very quickly and was right with me every step of the way. She is very knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions. I highly recommend her!"
