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!

Shane Halleman
John Greene Realtor
About Shane

Raised on a small livestock farm in central Illinois, Shane Halleman acquired a deep-rooted work ethic. “On a farm, you don’t stop until the day’s work is done,” he says. “Just like in real estate, no two days are the same. You are challenged to prioritize the urgent tasks, but still get done the day-to-day chores.” Halleman, a broker with john greene Realtor (jgR), learned from spending 13 years in information technology that he was meant to work with people, not computers. “The part of the job I loved was working with users of our software all over the country,” he says, noting providing customer service and support and solving clients’ problems was a highlight. Assisting buyers and sellers in Naperville and the western suburbs, Shane recently entered jgR’s 100 Million Presidents Club. In 2014, he ranked No. 152 in Real Trends Top 250 Agents Nationally for Transaction Sides with 171 sales. Early last year, Shane showed his ability to adapt to markets outside of his typical market place by assisting an investor with the purchase and resale of 19 homes in Grayslake. “These homes were the remainder of a 59-home portfolio that Waste Management had acquired adjacent to one of their landfills,” he says, noting he had several concerns for both himself and the investor, since Waste Management had been struggling for five years to sell the properties. Undeterred, they set goals for time and sales prices. With a great team rehabbing the homes, they hit the timeline goal and exceeded the financial goal by approximately 50 percent. The project in both its before and after stages was featured in a local business magazine. “I have the ability to keep people calm in an emotionally fueled real estate transaction,” he says. “Usually it takes looking at the situation from both the buyer’s and seller’s point of view.” He gives first- time buyers patience and education, and sellers and move-up buyers a smooth, stress-free process. An outdoor person, Halleman enjoys golf and relaxing by the grill. He is also a licensed drag racer and has competed nationally for a number of years

What does a top real estate agent do?
Top real estate agents have more local expertise, prepare in-depth market analyses, and have industry connections that you can’t find by yourself. They know your neighborhood like the back of their hand and use their market knowledge to sell your home faster than the average agent and for money.
Read more
What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Shorewood?
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.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Shorewood?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. 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. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in Shorewood, IL.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Shorewood?
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 Shorewood 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 Shorewood 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.
Read more
What is the average real estate agent commission for agents in Shorewood?
