A little background about me below...
I've never regretted my decision to leave medical school to pursue my dream of becoming a successful Realtor, but boy did I have horrible timing! In the spring of 2007 I was faced with a world of possibilities, but I fell into a job as the assistant to a successful developer's agent in Chicago's West Loop, Bucktown & Lincoln Park neighborhoods, selling high-end new construction condos.
I quickly learned the ropes of this niche market (and was assisting in many sales), but just as quickly realized it wasn't new construction that had my heart, but the historic Victorian, Craftsman and Prairie-style beauties in the Oak Park & River Forest communities certainly did.
I had fallen in love with the architecture and history of the Oak Park & River Forest areas while attending Dominican University in River Forest, and was already living in a condo in the south end of Oak Park, so making the transition to RE/MAX In The Village was an easy one.
Earning money and making sales, on the other hand, was not. I joined RE/MAX in the fall of 2007, and the market literally came to a halt the following week. After a few months, I joined Kyra Pych's team as a buyer's agent and marketing coordinator. I learned the business from the ground up from one of the area's top and most respected agents, and our partnership continues today with the addition of Linda Rooney.
We proudly serve the near west suburbs of Chicago (Oak Park, River Forest, & Forest Park) as well as many suburbs and neighborhoods throughout Cook & DuPage Counties. Our #1 focus is client satisfaction and developing long-term relationships with those we serve.

Testimonials for Laurie Christofano
Atul, investor client06/22/2014
I bought 1 single family home in Oak Park (Foreclosure at auction), 1 Town home in Oak Park (Estate Sale), and a 2-Flat (Estate Sale) in Forest Park with Laurie. All these houses were great deals (Bought between 2011 and 2014) which is why I keep working with her. She is very sharp, no B.S., and has a good understanding of customer (Home Buyer) and what her customer is trying to do with the home buy. She is selling a lot of homes obviously and I wish her good luck.
Daniel, Oak Park seller06/19/2014
Laurie is a great agent. She was responsive every step of the way, was very patient with all our questions, and helped us know what to expect. Also, her photographer did an amazing job!
Melissa L, Oak Park condo buyer05/26/2014
Laurie was a great fit for us, she really understood what we were looking for as far as style and price and only showed us places that fell into our desires. Being first time home buyers, Laurie was an excellent source of knowledge to help us through the process.
Kathy, River Forest SFH Seller09/24/2013
Laurie is an outstanding agent. She offers a sound minded approach to selling a home, gives insightful and necessary feedback about what buyers want, and is gracious and considerate of her clients' needs. She just closed the deal on selling our house and we couldn't be more appreciative of all she did!
Clare Lund, buyer client01/12/2013
Laurie helped my husband and I purchase our first home in May 2012. She gave us good advice as she assisted in our search, helping us find houses that met our criteria, and setting up showings when it was convenient for us. She showed us how to navigate the web listings for different properties so we were more informed buyers. On the day of the showings, Laurie had done her homework ahead of time, and came prepared with information about the listings to help us make our decisions. As we narrowed our list down, Laurie was extremely knowledgeable about the process and was always there to answer questions and help with her expertise, and offered valuable information about comparable properties in the area. Once we had decided on a house to buy, Laurie was there every step of the way, helping us get the best possible price, helping find an attorney, and working with our mortgage broker to make the numbers work for our situation. We would highly recommend Laurie to anyone looking for a buyer's agent to work with during their home purchase!
Julie Capasso, buyer client01/04/2013
As a first time home buyer of a short sale property, Laurie not only made the process easy to understand, but she also made herself accessible consistently to answer questions and address my concerns. Without her regular communication I can only imagine how frustrating the wait could have been. Laurie's commitment to her clients is evident through her excellent understanding of her customer's needs and wants. Based on my experience with Laurie, she not only knows and understands the market, but more importantly, how best to advise her clients of changes that are occurring, and how it impacts their search for a property they may be considering. I was impressed by Laurie's invaluable work ethic, dedication and professionalism, and couldn't be more pleased with my new home!
