It’s like having a friend on the “inside” that is working for you.
Crystal is absolutely the best. It’s like having a friend on the “inside” that is working for you. She really cares about her clients as well as the community and neighborhood. She helped us navigate through our sale when the market was really tricky. She kept us apprised about available appointments and always let us know as soon as a new one came on the market. She was honest and forthright- no games. She is extremely resourceful, professional and just fun to work with. We loved working with Crystal. Highly, highly recommended!
Crystal went the extra mile for us again and again
Crystal has to be the most effective, knowledgeable, and driven realtor on the Northside. We had an exceedingly complex purchasing situation, and Crystal guided us through it every step of the way. She found fantastic properties in our narrow criteria and was persistent and efficient in getting us in to see them. Once we found the perfect place, Crystal coached us expertly through the offer process. Then Crystal used insights from her decades of experience to steer us through issues with the mortgage, inspection, and closing that were far outside of her responsibility, because she wouldn't rest until we had the keys to the perfect property in our hand. Crystal went the extra mile for us again and again, and we couldn't be happier with the result.

The process was made so much easier by working with Crystal Riley.
When I first considered putting my Ravenswood rental condo on the market, I talked over my plans with Crystal. She gave me excellent guidance and helped me decide which home improvements would have the greatest impact on the sale. After a few upgrades were completed, Crystal had professional photos taken, created some beautiful sales brochures, and then held an open house that was very well attended. I received an offer for asking price just three days after the condo went on the market. Once the property was under contract, Crystal followed up closely with legal and the buyer’s team to make sure the closing went smoothly. Selling a home can be stressful, but the process was made so much easier by working with Crystal Riley.

We were very impressed by Crystal's knowledge, insight and negotiation process
When searching for a realtor to sell our Chicago condo, we looked no further than to Crystal Riley. Crystal provides the highest level of service and care to her clients and she met our needs beyond our expectations. We were very impressed by Crystal's knowledge, insight and negotiation process that allowed us to get our property sold within a day above market value.
Thank you for all you have done Crystal, and your sense of humor led us through a stressful time to get our condo sold. You were magnificent!

Really, do not pass up an opportunity to work with this lovely, hardworking lady!
My husband and I have used Crystal several times to buy and sell homes. It has always been the most excellent experience. Crystal’s knowledge of the inner workings of homes is impeccable and was essential to all of our successful price negotiations. We would never use anyone else and I would recommend her to anyone. I work at a bank and I always get her involved when we have real-estate sales we need to transact. Really, do not pass up an opportunity to work with this lovely, hardworking lady!

We are so grateful for Crystal's sage advice
We are so grateful for Crystal's sage advice to us through TWO different home purchases. Her knowledge of Chicago and expertise saved us time, money and I'm sure what would've been a lot of heartache as we considered our options. We also are keen sufferers of the 'Midwest Nice' and always felt like Crystal not only had our best interests at heart but would hop into the ring on our behalf - making sure we would get the best deal possible and that we were treated fairly at every turn. Already looking forward to our third round!"
