Growing up in Chicago, the daughter of a police officer, has given me a unique set of skills: an internal compass and an ingrained knowledge of the streets and grid system; an appreciation of the highs and lows our city affords from dive bars and diners to the finest architecture and our glittering skyline. I've watched neighborhoods evolve and flourish in my lifetime. In Chicago, I have lived as far North as West Ridge and as far South as Hyde Park and have resided in Logan Square for well over a decade. Barcelona, London and Tokyo, have each been respite but Chicago will always be home. I graduated from the University of Chicago and have been proud to sell residential real estate since 2003.
I joined @properties Saffron Realty Group in 2013, marking my 10th year in the the business.
I believe that I earn my reputation every day. Being the best advocate for my clients and putting their needs and goals before my own has earned me a loyal clientele and referral base. I communicate freely, negotiate smartly and monitor each and every event during the sales process. I aim to provide a boutique level of service to my clients.
I am a member of the Chicago Association of Realtors, Illinois Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors. I am a Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE).
Clients are saying:
"My broker Amy guided me through my first home purchase from the very beginning. We looked at almost 30 properties, put bids on 5, and closed on a good one. She kept me focused and motivated. I am very happy with the service I received."
"We got a referral from my sister. Amy is the best broker. She is such a caring, friendly, and helpful person. We are very impressed with her being PATIENT A LOT. We were happy with her to be able to communicate me and my husband as Deaf buyers by writing back and forth, emails, and text messages. Hunting the houses, she often checks and finds the odd thing/place inside and outside the house. She has a VERY GOOD EYES! Throughout the home buying process, she went above and beyond the call of duty to eliminate as many unforeseen kinks and snags that may have been overlooked. She did an amazing job! Thank you Amy Bushnell for making it happen. We are ever happily owners!"
