Picture of Chris Pagano

Spotting value in things comes naturally for Chris. From the time he was young, Chris’ favorite hobby was collecting rare coins from around the world. His interest progressed to commodities, such as silver and gold, and eventually the stock market. After graduating from the University of Miami with a degree in finance, Chris became a trader on the Chicago Board of Trade and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange for 15 years.

Now with over twenty years of real estate experience behind him Chris is now among the top 1% of Realtors nationwide, with residential sales in excess of $250,000,000. As an agent specializing in properties in the Gold Coast, Lincoln Park, North Side and Lakefront areas, Chris utilizes the same skills he exhibited as a trader. He uses his strong negotiations skills, ability to spot value, and knowledge of finance and interest rates to ensure his clients get the most for their money.

“My goal as an agent is to find top value for my clients in an ever-changing real estate market. I can t rest unless I know I’ve helped them make an informed investment decision.”
