Before Kris McCartney became a REALTOR®, she would spend her Sundays at open houses or just touring properties to satisfy her keen interest and intellectual curiosity. This fascination with real estate led her to become an agent, and Kris still loves exploring a variety of homes as a professional.
Kris works tirelessly to help buyers and seller meet their goals. It’s a passion. She is organized, analytical, detail oriented as well as highly creative, which gives her clients a distinct advantage in a competitive marketplace.
Although buying or selling a home can be stressful, Kris does all she can to make the process pleasant – and even enjoyable. By being responsive, caring, informative, honest and respectful, Kris forms strong relationships with her clients as they embark on their house hunting adventures. Client satisfaction is an acknowledged hallmark of her success.
Kris works in the city as well as in Oak Park, River Forest, Berwyn and the surrounding communities, which she loves for their small town feel.
Kris is an Illinois girl through-and-through. She grew up on the North Shore, lived in the city for several years, and settled down with her husband in Oak Park to raise their two children. When she’s not working, Kris enjoys spending time with her family, reading, writing and exploring the area…just for fun.
Very attentive to my mom and siblings all involved in selling long time owned family home She helped above and beyond real estate selling process and would recommend her to anyone
Kris is very knowledgeable In the real estate market. We looked
at many homes before a decision was made and Kris was extremely patient and helpful throughout the whole process. If you are looking for your next home I would strongly recommend working with Kris.
Kris was wonderful to work with! She provided us with great listings that met our needs and requirements – everything from location, price and specifics such as size and extras the home must have. She also pre-notified us of any conditions any homes we were interested in had. This saved us from the hassle of moving forward with a home only to find out that our lender (VA loan) would not approve the purchase. She knew how valuable our time was to us. And on all of our home visits, she prepared a buyer’s tour for us. It was so helpful. All of the information we needed was readily available, and we were able to take notes and see photos of the homes. More importantly, she was always available and responsive. My husband and I both have tight availability and she was always able to accommodate our schedules. Once, Kris even visited our apartment at 10pm because that was the only time we could meet! Not to mention, she also responded to our calls and emails within an hour of receipt. She also gave us very useful information regarding the area, the properties we viewed and what situations to take advantage of. Kris was a wonderful buyer’s agent. She made the home buying process and search very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend her to any of my friends, family or co-workers and when we are on our next move I will be sure to reach out to her again.
Kris was very easy to work with, knowledgeable and friendly. She has a calm, reassuring presence that is helpful in the ups and downs of buying a house. Kris was especially good at responding to questions right away and being thorough in her communication with me and the other parties involved. I would highly recommend her as an agent, and wear every happy with our purchase.
Kris is a kind hearted, intelligent, detail oriented professional. She understands the nuances of the local market. Kris responded when we had the slightest needs and supported us during our complicated move. Kris was incomplete partnership with us during the entire process. She is helpful beyond words!
This lady is a real pro. She really helped me including setting the price, taking good pictures, scheduling the showings, smartly timed open houses, up to dates on the competitive environment and finally all the details of the listing and sale. Very important to me, she was on top of all the ******* paperwork involved with the listing and sale of the unit. Her knowledge and follow through were particularly important since I am an out-of-towner. Her attention to detail was truly fabulous! If I had another place to sell, I would use her in a heartbeat! And, as a bonus, she is really nice!
I would highly recommend Kris, as she is an extremely personable and knowledgeable broker. She is very timely in answering any questions I have, and providing pertinent information when needed. She manages to make the difficult jog of house hunting an enjoyable experience.
Kris was very professional and extremely knowledgeable. She responded quickly to any inquiries and really knew the area. She provided valuable information that helped immensely. She also connected us with the resources we didn’t know existed. She was a pleasure to work with.

Kris really persevered working with me. She helped me get the place I wanted and was excellent with follow up.
