The purchase or sale of a home is one of the most important financial decisions a person will ever make.
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work. I developed these skills through my years of being a Registered Nurse, Teacher, and Transferee.
Being a REALTOR® for over 20 years I bring a wealth of expertise and knowledge to every real estate transaction I'm involved in. Experience, knowledge, flexibility and versatility allow me to help my clients achieve their goals-whether it's buying or selling a home, or investing in a property. Setting out with one goal when I transitioned into the real estate business: Provide top notch customer service to my clients by taking the time to listen to their needs and concerns. " Being able to maintain my sense of humor during the pressure of real estate negotiations, being diplomatic and tactful makes the real estate transaction more successful."
I feel it is important to provide excellent communications, professional and concise marketing presentations, educate buyers and sellers in the current conditions of the real estate market, and have a strong sense of ethics and intergrity. Additionally, being well versed in the diverse housing market of Lake County and northern Cook County. My clients state that my exceptional negotiating has provided for them a better return on their investment. Having moved over 5 times in a short period, I understand what my clients experience.
Relocation and Transferee Specialist.
Most importantly, I am committed to personalized customer service to each client I assists in buying or selling real estate.
Born in Romania, Cristian Marincas came to the United States in 1999 and lived on the North side of Chicago. In 2004, the chance of homeownership was too much to pass up at that time, so Cristian, his wife and two children purchased a home in Morton Grove to fulfill a desire to live the "American Dream" in his "new country"!
With the home purchasing experience having been accomplished, Cristian became a Real Estate Broker to educate all homebuyers and sellers on the importance of finding a house that fits your needs and budget!
Prior to entering real estate, Cristian was the owner of a small hardwood floor business, which also included small remodeling projects. His company still operates today! With this experience, Cristian has learned how important it is for him to cover every little detail to service his clients. With this in mind, he has been able to get great reviews from customers from his hardwood floor business. He now uses this same consideration and detail as a Real Estate Broker.
For the past 15 years, Cristian has invested in a few remodeling projects himself and has gathered tremendous experience and knowledge about the real estate market. He recognizes every dollar that has been spent on properties and works hard to make sure that a profit will come from his energy!
Now as a Real Estate Broker, Cristian will be there with you every step of the way to make sure that you are getting what you are expecting to get when you buy or sell. With Cristian Marincas by your side, the "American Dream" of homeownership can come true for you, too!
My core strengths, which are my natural behaviors that coincide with my service and responsibilities to you in an agency relationship, are that I am very analytical, deliberative and I am very disciplined.
My commitment to you is that I will conduct myself at a level of professional and ethical standards. I will explain and accompany you in every step of the process in marketing or purchasing real estate that meets and exceeds your expectations.
I specialize in residential and condominium properties. I enjoy working with first-time home buyers and buyers who have outgrown their current homes and need to find larger properties. I also provide customized marketing plans for sellers who need to downsize or find move-up properties.I have been a Chicago resident for 36 years and a Skokie resident since 1985 so I am very familiar with the city and suburban areas.
