Chris Downey

Real Estate Agent



Confidence Built on Experience

"I take enormous personal pride in my work, never resting until my clients are satisfied and my own high standards have been met."

Chris began her career in Real Estate on the North Shore in 1978 and has consistently been a top sales producer. Recognized as an expert on the luxury market by buyers, sellers and fellow agents, Chris has represented more clients in $1,000,000 + transactions than any other agent in the area. Her specialized knowledge of this market segment over an extended period of time provides credibility when she is dealing with high-end properties. Chris's clientele is largely from personal referrals. Over the years her reputation for candid communication and fine results has turned strangers into clients. Chris is proud that many people have bought and sold with her more than once. Her follow through and negotiating skills please the most demanding clients. A relaxed sense of humor, creativity, and expertise are hallmarks of Chris's professional style. Her understanding of her client's needs and her marketing skills make her an effective partner in either the buying or the selling of a property. In her first year with Koenig & Strey, Chris achieved the top sales awards presented by her office-highest volume, most listings, and largest single sale. She received the exclusive Founders' Award in 1996. In the years 2000 and 2003, Chris was especially thrilled to be sole Company winner of the Sotheby's Award, signifying the most transactions over $1,000,000 among the 1,200+ Company agents! She was the Winnetka Office volume leader and had the largest sale in 2005 and 2006 as well. The first residential Realtor to be invited to membership in the Economic Club of Chicago over twenty years ago, Chris is known as the business person's broker. This enviable reputation has indeed created confidence...built on experience.
