Gerardo Garcia's deep knowledge and love for Chicago and its neighborhoods has led him to become one of the most successful, results-oriented real estate agents in the city. He is particularly adept at working with home buyers and sellers who benefit from a calm, experienced adviser who thrives on guiding clients through the process of achieving their real estate goals.
Gerardo was born and raised in Chicago and began his career in the field of legal support with one of the most prominent bankruptcy firms in the Midwest, where he acquired extensive experience and a deep appreciation for the importance of financial literacy and investment savvy. In 2014, Gerardo transitioned those skills to a successful real estate career, and since that time he has personally achieved over $20M in sales. He attributes his success to the high level of service he offers to all of his clients, many of whom are city employees or other Chicago residents with specific location needs. He brings an intimate knowledge of the city's neighborhoods, schools, building trends and local resources, with the goal of helping clients locate the right home for them.
In 2016, Gerardo partnered with two like-minded colleagues to form Chicago Home Living, a real estate specialist group within @properties. Chicago Home Living was formed with a common goal of providing a higher standard of service and incorporating a personable and boutique approach to all types of real estate transactions. To date, Chicago Home Living has collectively achieved over $40M in sales and was recognized in 2019 with an achievement award as a top-producing team by Chicago Magazine.
As part of his commitment to providing unequaled service to his clients, Gerardo has earned the ABR (Accredited Buyer's Representative) and PSA (Pricing Strategy Advisor) certifications from the National Association of Realtors. He is an active member of the Chicago Association of Realtors and is committed to following best practices in each real estate experience.
Gerardo is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago and has lived in the South Loop area for over six years. In his spare time, he enjoys traveling and DJing at some of Chicago's most popular bars and clubs. He is fluent in English and in Spanish.

"highly highly recommend Gerardo as a realtor. I was skeptical and nervous about the whole home buying process but Gerardo made the experience easy and stress free. Any concern or question I had, Gerardo quickly had an answer or a solution. Very knowledgeable about real estate and the communication we had was amazing. Greatly appreciate him for helping me make this big decision On becoming a homeowner."
"Gerardo is an experienced, tenacious, and responsive realtor. He helped me find a new home from nearly 1000 miles away. He was very thorough in finding every property that fell within my search criteria. And was very prompt in responding to any question I had. He even set up large number of viewings at a last minute notification that I would be flying in - I told him 2 days before I flew in one weekend and he set up nearly 20 showings that weekend. He works well with the people he recommends for the legal and inspection portions, and does not in any way try to scam you. It appears his main objective is to do a job well done, no matter the work involved, which is both a rarity and a refreshing example of how realtors should be. And through it all, Gerardo makes you feel like he is in it with you, not just someone involved in a business transaction, a friend. I almost want to sell my new property that he helped me buy just so we can hang out. You would be making a mistake to pass up an opportunity to work with Gerardo."
