Help others achieve their dreams and you will achieve yours”.  Les Brown

This philosophy defines my business. It’s about helping my clients achieve their real estate goals, whether buying, selling, or investing.  Throughout my 11 years in the business I’ve seen some of the best markets and most challenging markets in history.  Over the last several years, I’ve honed my skills by adding the prestigious designation of Certified Real Estate Negotiator (CREN), to better assist my clients in multiple offer situations.  Recently I served as a peer appointed representative to the Baird and Warner Advisory Counsel, where I sat alongside our CEO Steve Baird and aided in discussion on how we can better serve our customers and the community.  I am a proud member of the Chicago Association of Realtors, The Illinois Association of Realtors, The National Association of Realtors, and the MRED Multiple Listing Service.

My sales awards include the Top Unit Producer in the City North office, a member of the Baird and Warner Chairman’s Club, as well as being named a Chicagoland Five Star Realtor in Chicago Magazine for the fifth consecutive year.  When I’m not working, I love spending time with my wife of 16 years and my 3 year-old daughter, as well as playing golf, partaking in the outstanding Chicago restaurant scene, and sampling the latest local craft beers.  I’m incredibly excited and grateful for the opportunity to work with you!

"Bucky Cross helped me to sell an estate property, a home that was right in his own neighborhood. His support and knowledge were right on target, and I felt that the home sale could not have been easier.
Bucky made a difficult transition easier with his kind and attentive service. I would recommend Bucky to anyone who needs an agent."

"Bucky is the best! He is friendly, professional, and dedicated, and he made the home-buying process a breeze. Bucky was always attentive to our home-buying needs and made time right away to show us new listings, including in the evenings and on weekends. He also always communicated with us promptly. We purchased a modest home, but the personalized attention he gave us made us feel as though we were buying a much more expensive house. When we moved in, Bucky also gave us great recommendations for a contractor and electrician. If we ever have residential real estate needs in the future, he will be the only person we call. We can't recommend him highly enough!"

"Bucky is a true professional. I flew into Chicago for the weekend with my boyfriend with the intent to see as many properties as possible that fit my requirements and he certainly obliged and dedicated his entire weekend to me. He only provided me with properties he felt I would like and was always extremely well prepared ahead of time. I would constantly ask nit-picky questions and he always knew the answer off the top of his head. I'm relatively new to home-buying and he never had any problem holding my hand and making sure I understood what was going on. He is very reachable by phone/text/email and always responds very promptly. He's incredibly friendly and has an awesome sense of humor - and I now own a house that I love thanks to him!"

"ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! First-time home buyers here and could not be more satisfied with Bucky's quality of service, support/guidance navigating this unfamiliar process and overall upbeat attitude.

Bucky has a solid understanding of the current market in Chicago. We found ourselves in very competitive, multiple-offer situations, and he efficiently pulled together comparables and provided guidance on how to craft a competitive offer that we were comfortable with. Furthermore, he is in the Top Agent Network who has access to listings before they are officially posted on the market and he would quickly notify us if anything that fit our criteria/taste became available.

Bucky made us feel like we were his only clients - taking time to support us at open houses, showings, home inspections and the final closing, as well as quickly responding to our messages and taking spontaneous phone calls to answer our naive questions. On top of that, he is just an overall joy to work with! My fiance and I would joke around that we would schedule excessive showings just to hang out with him.

Thank you, thank you, Bucky, for helping us find our dream home!!! We will certainly be referring you to others with confidence!"
