Joliet’s top 3% of agents do 794 real estate transactions per year. Compare that to the average agent who does transactions a year — the top agent completes 77.3% more transactions!

Christine Thompson
Baird & Warner
About Christine

Specialties: Buyer's Agent, Listing Agent, Short-Sale, Staging Meet The Christine Thompson Advantage Team Let's start with the credentials. Here are some of my accomplishments: • Founder's Club (top 1%) level for all Baird & Warner offices • Graduate REALTOR® Institute designation (GRI) • Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist® (CLMHS) • Certification in home staging (CSC) • Certified Negotiation Consultant (CNC) But you didn't come here to read a list of bullet points (there's more if you want it!). You came to find out who I am and what makes me stand out from the overwhelming choices of available Chicago brokers. Here's what makes me different: 1. I'm Not Your Average Real Estate Broker. Think of me as your real estate tour guide. You're getting a seasoned expert to guide you through the maze-like Chicagoland area real estate market. The rules of the game are always changing: I'm on a constant quest for up-to-date knowledge of the shifting market trends and practices in the real estate industry. One of the key ingredients in my magic home selling formula is my certification to perform a Broker's Price Opinion (BPOr). It gives both types of my clients a reality check: sellers when deciding how to price their home when first entering the market and buyers when determining a fair final purchase price before even making an offer. In the market for luxury real estate? You're in luck: I was one of the first Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialists in the area and am a forerunner in establishing the luxury market for the Western Suburbs. I provide the expertise, and comprehensive service buyers and sellers of luxury properties are looking for. 2. I'm Not Just a Buyer Agent; I'm a Matchmaker. Home-buying is like online dating. Sometimes you need a little help finding The One. My recipe for success is part market analysis, part intuitive matchmaking. As an Accredited Buyer Resource Specialist (ABR) and Short Sale & Foreclosure Resource Specialist (SFR), I have extensive knowledge of how to support you in your pursuit; no matter your budget or your type of purchase. 3. I'm Not Just a Broker; I'm a Marketing Powerhouse. When you work with me, you're not just working with me. My team of experts will have your back every step of the way: you'll have a marketing manager and ad copywriter to capture attention to your listing, a transaction manager to streamline the process from list to close, and a range of industry resources at your disposal. Having a Seller Resource Specialist designation (SRS) and memberships with The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing, Luxury Portfolio and Real Estate Companies of the World, PLUS my background as an advertising art director provide the marketing tools and networking capabilities that benefit clients of any budget. 4) Even If We're Not the Right Match, I Can Still Help You. Does your real estate desire lie outside of my territory? Not a problem; get in touch anyway. I'll connect you with the perfect broker for your needs via the Baird-Warner Preferred Agent Referral Network. 5) I Work for My Clients Even When I'm Not Working. When I'm not taking out-of-towners on "boot camp home tours" or hauling staging furniture for clients (did I mention I'm a certified stager?), I spend my free time at the yoga studio (the hotter, the better) and working out to mixed aerobics and weight training videos. I do all this to revitalize myself so I can give my all to selling your home or helping you find the perfect property. Most of all, I love catching some well-earned R&R and traveling with my awesome family. I believe in providing passionate, award-winning real estate service with a human touch. If you'd like my help with your home buying or selling needs, let's talk!

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Joliet?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Joliet?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Joliet to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Joliet is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
