Bucky Cross - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Bucky was a great realtor.

He understood up front what we were looking for and we only had to go out twice before we found our home. He was a leader throughout the process from contract to loan approval and closing, and we used his recommendations for attorney and lender. He and his family have become friends with my family and I will definitely seek his guidance when we look to put our property on the rental or sales market in the future.

Chris & Simone DeAngelis

Bucky was extremely knowledgeable, professional, punctual and did everything he said he would do with a smile.

He made the rental process easy and we highly recommend him to anyone!

Amanda and Zeynel

Bucky helped me not only buy my condo, but also sell it only a short three years later.

Since I was a first time home buyer I really felt he helped me navigate the market, but advised me not to see too many properties to avoid confusion. In the selling of my condo while he always gave me great advice was on my side when I didn't feel like it was right!

Katrina DeSantis

Our experience with Bucky was fantastic.

He went out of his way to make sure we understood everything. He dailed in very quickly on our interests and we couldn't be happier with our new condo. I'd highly recommend Bucky to anyone looking for a new place in Chicago.

Just finally getting a chance to let everyone know what a great experience we had working with Bucky!

!! From the moment we met him in the initial consultation and explained that we were super picky and had several musts on our lists, he put us at ease. I started feeling like one of those impossible couples on those HGTV shows, but he told is that it is normal. We went out 2 times before he knew exactly what we wanted & on our third trip... We found two perfect places that weren't  even on our pick lists...He is truly amazing at what he does! He also helped me sell my condo that I was having a hard time letting go within 5 days with his expertise in knowing how to price, photograph and market!  GO BUCKY!!!

I don't even know where to begin in this review.

 Bucky was recommended to me by a friend of mine at my son's school. He was nothing short of amazing! We were moving on a very tight deadline due to relocation, he would always make himself available to help with whatever we needed in getting the property ready for show. We actually ended up moving and left all the other details in his hands and he handled it professionally and we closed a very short time after. We have bought and sold many properties and there is no doubt that Bucky is one of the best agents we have ever worked with. He still calls to check in to see how were doing in our new location! He definitely took the stress off of selling our condo and a lot of the stress off of just having to move in general buys just making sure everything was going OK here as well it was a great experience!

"Bucky is intimately familiar with all Chicago neighborhoods.

He had the answer to every minor step of the home buying process. Whether it be by phone of email, I could count on Bucky to respond promptly on any day of the week. I was very happy with the price paid for my new home."

Jose & Mayda Mercado

Greg & Jessica

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!

Bucky did an amazing job in helping me find a place to rent and was in constant communication with me on the process of the application!

Stacey E Puccini

I can't say enough good things about Bucky as a real estate expert.

He sent me quality properties that weren't listed elsewhere and made my move to Chicago super easy.   At first I thought the process was going too slow but then we meet in person we finished my search in one day in a location and square feet that I didn't think I could afford. Turns out I was wrong.  He really does know the area and the market better than most. He sealed the deal at below market rates quite quickly. If you looking for a closer Bucky is it!  I can't recommend him enough.

Justin Ruffin

Bucky was nothing short of amazing!

! He helped me in the purchase of my first condo. From the moment I contacted him, he was so professional yet made me feel so easy and comfortable. He listened as I told him of my needs in a condo. He was incredibly patient as he took me to see many places. His great sense of humor and friendly deamonor was awesome. I never felt pressured. Knowing what I was looking for, Bucky throughout the process gave me some options to look at. Long story short, he helped me in finding what I consider the perfect condo. I am just so pleased and so happy to have chosen Bucky and his company to help me. I will surely and confidently refer others to him!! Bucky, a million thank yous for being so wonderful!

Elda Y.

Thanks again for making our home buying a flawless experience.


Aron Oakley & Krzystof Wlosek

Very patient.

Putting up with my demands? He must be a saint, especially since I requested a home that was low in price, thereby decreasing his earnings.

Sharon Aguirre

"Bucky is great, we are so happy we found him.

Originally he didn't work in the area where we were looking for a property, but he did the best job finding the right listing, preparing as much information as we needed. He did an even better job compared to agents who specialized in that area. He helped with all  questions during the process, negotiating with the seller and finally closing a deal." 

Olga B.

As first time homebuyers, we were a little nervous, but Bucky walked us through the whole process step by step and put our minds at ease!

He was willing to go out of his way to make sure we found a great first home that fit our budget and wish list. If you are looking for an experienced agent to help you navigate Chicago’s real estate market, Bucky is your guy. We can’t recommend him enough, and will definitely be calling him when we are ready to move again!

Andrea Covington and Ryan Green

Bucky’s amazing.

Working with Bucky was a truly great experience. We interviewed a handful of other realtors and they didn’t quite feel right, but, after meeting Bucky - we knew he was our agent. We looked for a home for over 1.5 years and even had a few deals that didn’t work out, but, he was always patient with us and was always available to chat.Great guy - great attitude - great sense of humor - great work ethic - great knowledge of real estate and very professional.Work with him - he’s awesome.


Bucky Cross is an outstanding realtor!

He guided me through the process of selling my house, and I was very pleased with the results. He was always available to answer my questions. I highly recommend him!

Barbara Seshadri

My experience selling my home and buying a new one with Bucky was wonderful.

I originally met Bucky walking my dog in my neighborhood and I was so glad I ran into him when it came time to sell my house and purchase the house of my dreams! He guided me through the whole process with ease and humor. He was very knowledgeable, supportive and always ready to help out whenever I had a question or a problem during the somewhat emotional process of selling my house and buying my new home.  He was always easy to reach throughout the whole process and also connected me with very qualified people, whether it be the home inspector or the attorney for closing.  Also, because of his connections, I was able to sell my home without having to officially show it, making the sale of my home a stress-free process. He talked me through the entire process of purchasing the new home and had wonderful advice and recommendations throughout. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell or purchase real estate in the Chicagoland area.

Suzanne Claussen

We were first time home buyers and Bucky did a great job helping us to understand and feel comfortable with the process.

We ended up having to walk away from two contracts before finally closing this one, and Bucky's support throughout helped us to keep going and eventually find our home. 

Dan & Alison

We were first time condo buyers, and we are very happy with the way Bucky led us through the whole process.

Living in three hours drive from Chicago, we were not easy clients. Bucky was always willing to adjust his schedule and accommodate to our needs. He was very quick with passing our offers to the other side and getting their reply.  He recommended the home inspector and the attorney, and both guys were excellent! The whole buying process went smoothly thanks to Bucky's competence, energy, and friendliness.

Yury Ionin

I noticed that most of the reviews out there are for clients buying homes.

Trust me, its a very different experience when you are selling your home. Yet as stressful as this process was, I couldn't have been happier that Bucky was my guy. He was professional, available and -as was mentioned multiple times in reviews- very patient. As nice as Bucky is, he is a solid negotiator. My only regret was not finding Bucky last year :) Thank you for everything Bucky, you are the best.

Ned Badir

As a first time home buyer, I had a lot to learn and needed someone I could trust that would be patient with me.

Bucky was great at making sure I was comfortable with the process, educating me on what was going on and always communicating next steps. He presented great property options that fit my personal aesthetic in areas that I wanted to be in and importantly in the budget I requested. I fell in love with a property early in the process and he was able to negotiate a great price and facilitate a quick closing. I couldn't be happier with my new condo and the help Bucky and his team provided me! 

Molly Witges


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!

Mickey Reed and Robert Pazely

To say we had a fantastic experience with Bucky is a major understatement.

 When I met, I explained to him our dilemma of trying to sell two condos and purchase another one and trying to coordinate all of that to happen simultaneously.  His response, "No problem".  From our first meeting, my fiance and I felt very at ease with Bucky.  He took time to get to know what our tastes were in properties and where we wanted to live.  When we went for showings, I thought we would see 1 or 2 places but he was able to line up 5-6 showings each day to make the best use of our time.  We were already impressed.  We were very picky with finding the right place but after a while of looking, Bucky found two that we were very excited to make an offer on.  One of which ended up being our new dream condo.   To not make this post longer than it already is... we had some issues with the buyers of both of our condos.  Bucky was so helpful in resolving all the issues and acting as the intermediary.  We are now moved in to our new place and feel like we have found a friend as well as a great realtor.  So if you are looking for a realtor that cares and will do whatever he can to sell your place or find you that dream home, you can't do any better than Bucky!!!

Mike O.

Bucky is wonderful to work with.

 We will definitely refer others to him.  

Carrie Doyle Berger - Premier Luxury Suites

Bucky was super patient with us as we knew we wanted to look at a LOT of places before making our final forever home decision.

 He never pushed us into any place or rushed us to make any decisions.  He was professional and friendly.  I HIGHLY recommend Bucky as anyone's realtor.  He was an expert in the area and he knew exactly what fit us the best.  We are very happy with our decision and cannot thank Bucky enough for his help.  If you want a realtor who KNOWS what he's doing, Bucky is the guy!  He is excellent!!!!

Lania Rosengren

Bucky was great!

Very persistent and kept communication with me throughout the whole process. I will definitely be talking to him in the near future about selling my house!
