I have recommended Chris to family and friends to help with their real estate needs.”

Michael Hessler – International Sales Director at SC Johnson

“Chris Corley provided my husband and I great service during our consideration and purchase of a condo located in downtown Milwaukee.

I would strongly recommend Chris as an expert real estate broker with experience in the Greater Milwaukee Area and downtown community.”

Tanya Hines – President and CEO, Hines & Associates Consulting Firm LLC. Sales Consultant, The Forward Group

“When we decided to live in Downtown Milwaukee, we worked with Chris and the experience was great. Chris was very knowledgeable, well prepared and had a thorough understanding of the project detail and kept us abreast of all events. Chris was also accessible. He answered his own phone and if not available would get back to you promptly (day or night). This was very refreshing especially after dealing with other realtors who never seem to have time to answer there own phone or return calls promptly. I would not hesitate to use Chris again if the occasion arises. I recommend Chris as a real estate professional.”

Doug & Pam Pepper – BreakWater Residents

He provided quick responses to all my needs regarding that transaction and I would be happy to use him again.”

Mark Garber President at Garber Properties Inc.

“I highly recommend Chris! I bought my condo through another realtor and Chris was representing the developer. Chris went above and beyond to help not only the move, but with coordinating and taking care of details with my unit (was new construction) months after the move in. Chris did not have to do all he did. I can’t say enough about how helpful Chris is. Dependable, timely, professional and a pleasure to work with.

I would work with Chris again in a minute and recommend him to friends and family.”

Beth Turban – Director, Support Services at Fisher Scientific

“I worked closely with Chris during and after the purchase of our condo on the Milwaukee lakefront. He was always very accommmodating, professional and responsive to our needs.

As a result, I recommend Chris Corley for your real estate needs.”

I would highly recommend Chris.”

CONDO SELLERS

“My overall experience with Chris Corley and his team at Corley Real Estate was an exceptional one.The Milwaukee downtown  condo market is unique and a very competitive one. At times, there’s a lot more considerations involved when selling or buying a condo versus a home in the suburbs, where a school district choice often prevails as the deciding factor. Hence, I was very selective on whom I chose to list my condo after attempting to sell it on my own for several months. I interviewed several realtors, and Chris was clearly the best choice available because of his industry expertise, strategic approach, and thorough understanding of all condo buildings and neighborhoods in the downtown Milwaukee. Chris is a smart and trustworthy business person. He’s accessible (pick’s up his own phone), personable, and communicative (promptly responds to any asked questions) – and also very detail oriented by seeing through every task from the beginning to the end. Corley Real Estate’s nimble, flexible and solution-oriented boutique business model served me well. I highly recommend Chris to anyone who is contemplating to buy or sell a condo in the downtown Milwaukee area.”

Garrett J. Butrym – Founder/Principal of Marketing 101  LLC

“This was the best/easiest closing I have ever had!”

Jennifer Recker-Jones, Ascension RPA, FMA, Sr. Portfolio Manager, Real Estate – Wisconsin

“Chris Corley is an exceptional real estate professional. We have bought and sold many homes around the country and can say he is the best agent in our experience. His knowledge of the Milwaukee luxury and waterfront condominium market is without peer. He was the listing agent when we purchased. He was attentive and helpful throughout the purchase process. He was also very helpful in networking in Milwaukee as we were new to the area. So when it was time to sell, he was our first choice for our listing. Chris worked with us to price based on his detailed knowledge of the market and trends. We highly recommend Chris.”

Don Hamblen – President of Wings of Hope

COLLEGUES

“Details of the Recommendation: “Chris is the real deal. He didn’t get into real estate in 2007 like 10 million other brokers/agents, at the height of the “order taking” frenzy. He is a professional, and real estate is his career. If you want some phony baloney cougar with a late model BMW, who is more interested in your wife “falling in love” with passe decor that was sold at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago 10 years ago… DON’T CALL CHRIS!”

David Turiciano – Shareholder, Mawicke & Goisman, S.C.

“The combination of Chris’ real estate knowledge and affable manner made him a most valued resource when I was transitioning to the Breakwater property. Smart. Strategic. Solid.”

I have had the pleasure of knowing Chris Corley since 2007. During this time, I have worked with him on several real estate transactions at The Breakwater Condominums.

I have found Chris to be very professional and competent in all aspects of the real estate business. In addition, Chris is very personable and someone who is willing to go the “extra mile” to help out whatever way he can. I highly recommend Chris Corley to anyone who might be looking for a real estate agent.”

Jim Stawicki – President at Stawicki Brand Architecture

“I had the opportunity to work with Chris on a very detailed and demanding high end residential construction project in Milwaukee – 110 living units at The BreakWater Condominiums. Not only did Chris sell the units and deal directly with the buyers during the construction process, he also helped expedite finishes on the project. His detail with both suppliers and unit buyers led to a very successful project for all involved.”

Ross Blount – Director of Contract Sales – American TV

“My experience with Chris has been exceptional, I appreciate his attention to detail and follow up!”
