Clients are saying:
"Our home buying experiences with Amy began nearly five years ago with the purchase of our last home. All went very smoothly and Amy's knowledge base of the area, diligence, honestly and attention to detail made that transactions worry free. Fast forward a few years, Amy again was our first choice to get us into the house of our dreams and to rent our then, current home. Amy was somehow able to always be one step ahead and ultimately see us through another purchase. When the process seemed daunting, Amy was the eternal optimist and reassured us that everything would work out. She also rented our home within days of listing. From market analysis, contract negotiations, and doing whatever it took to get both deals done, Amy was outstanding in all facets of the transactions! My wife and I highly recommend Amy Gapastione for your next real estate transaction. She is truly the BEST realtor in IL & has our family's business for life!"
"Amy is an absolute pleasure to work with. A home purchase is such an important life event and its important to feel like you've got the 100% support of your agent. Amy definitely provides the support, expertise, service and communication that is needed in the home buying process. My wife and I loved working with Amy and could never imagine going through this experience with anybody else. She is a total professional and we highly recommend her to everyone."
"Amy was absolutely amazing and a pleasure to work with in trying to find out first place to call home. We walked in knowing absolutely nothing on how the process worked or what to expect. To be quite honest, I was dreading looking at houses because I had this horrible feeling we wouldn't find the perfect home. Amy put my nerves to rest and made sure I knew exactly how the process worked and after 2 days of viewing houses we found our first home, and even better we were moved in just in time for the holidays!!! She is the most down to earth person and really works hard to help you find exactly what you want. I highly recommend her and will definitely use her again down the road if we ever want a change of scenery. Thank you so much Amy!"
"Amy was extremely honest and very knowledgeable. We were able to sell in under 60 days and we received an offer very close to our asking price. Amy was essential in making that happen. We also had tenants living in the unit which could have added some problems however Amy was able to work with them and got the job done."
"Amy was great. She was very professional, knowledgeable, goingabove and beyond, always looking for our best interest first not hers. She "held our hands" during this very stressful process of selling the house,with very positive attitude and outlook."
