Tom & Dana Carris

    • We used Tom to buy our town home 15 years ago. When we recently found our dream house, he helped us in the buying process again. And of course he helped us sell the town home! Tom and Dana provided excellent guidance and were very knowledgable about the market. We would definitely use them in the future and hope for the opportunity to refer them to friends and family.

    • We chose Tom and Dana initially because they were so responsive. And we couldn't have picked a better team. From start to finish they provided prompt answers to our questions and delivered a quick sale of our house. Things we liked: - Professional - Understanding of the market - Straightforward answers - We felt we could trust them

      - Tina & Tim M, Gurnee
    • Great realtors to work with. They work very well as a team and then one takes over. They suggested a fair sales price for my home, negotiated a fair commission and the house sold within a week. Love them!!

    • The entire home selling experience couldnt have been handled any better from start to finish. The Carris team kept me completely updated on all elements of the process with and pressure and helped with all the questions I had along the way.

    • My husband and I used the Dana and Tom Carris ** as our agent to sell our house and find a new one. Tom is an exceptional agent. He was fun to work with. Very honest and precise and made the whole real estate deal stress free. If you are looking to buy or sell a home I highly recommend to you to call Carris Homes office and ask for Tom or Dana as your agent. The whole thing was a very pleasant experience.

    • My wife and I just went through our last house sale with an extremely difficult buyer. Dana is truly a saint. She handled every difficult scenario with ease. Her ability to keep us level headed was masterful. On many occasions we were ready to throw in the towel. I am so glad she kept it alive. We made more money because of her skills in negotiation and human psychology. She successfully sold our house in less than 60 days in a slow market. I can't speak highly enough of Tom and Dana... we have used them not only for our personal real estate needs but for our investments and rentals as well. 10 stars.

    • Dana and Tom were amazing. They sold my house and helped me buy a house. LThey came to my home and gave me ideas about how to prepare my house for sale. They suggested paint colors and came over to see what else I could do to make my sale easier. My house sold in 6 days and Dana listened to my ideas and she negotiated the price I had expected for my home. ( I had another realtor come who said my home would sell for $30,000 less than it actually sold for. My buying process was just as easy. Dana was patient and would take me to any place I wanted to see. I finally picked my new home and again Dana used her negotiation skills and I got the home for the price I could afford. Dana and Tom were there for support every step of the way. She even helped transport boxes that I packed after the movers left. I cant say enough about their professionalism, knowledge and support making a difficult transition for me much easier

    • Where to begin. From day one Tom and Dana were amazing. We had to move three hours away and we were completely lost on what we should do with the house we only had for three short years. They gave us our options and helped us decide the logical thing to do. They advised us on the lawyer we should use and kept us up to date on everything happening throughout the whole process. I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone. They are life savers, we cant thank them enough for all of their hard work and dedication.

      - Mike & Melinda C, Antioch
    • It took us three years to find the house we liked, and Dana was always patient with us. She never seemed annoyed after taking us to another house we decided to pass on, never put any pressure on us to buy, and always stayed positive. She was happy to give a straight up evaluation of the positives and negatives of a given house without offering her opinion unless we asked for it. She was almost always able to schedule a showing anytime we requested it, and certainly within a day or so, even if we were mostly available nights and weekends. When we did find a house we liked, she helped us negotiate a purchase price lower than I was expected and provided other great advice on the process. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone.
