Clients are saying:
"Gina Shad is a superstar realtor!! She immediately understood what we were looking for our first home purchase and followed that up with excellent recommendations for home viewing. Her advice helped us in our decision making when we decided to make an offer on a house. Her excellent negotiation skills and knowledge of the process were very reassuring and helped calm our nerves!
Gina is always prompt with her communications and helped us find our ideal first home. Her knowledge of the geographical area, negotiation skills and expertise with the home buying process make her a 5-star real estate professional. She went far and beyond in helping us find right, reliable contractors to get home improvements for our new home!
We highly recommend her as a realtor for homebuyers seeking a stress free and fun home-buying experience. Additionally, we are happy to mention that through this pleasant process we made a new friend in Gina!!"
"Buying a home is complicated. There are a million moving part and lots of people touch the process. There is a lot of emotion - excitement, stress, frustration, and so on.
My experience with the process is that many of the professionals involved are working on a number of deals at the same time, so often you don't get a call back from a critical piece of the puzzle for days. It's maddening.
But Gina handled all that and more for us. When anyone on the team dropped the ball, she was there. She help us both buy and sell and because of her leadership and expertise, we found a home and sold a home in less than a week. She helped us find a loan, helped us through all the twists and turns. 5 star all the way."
"I cannot say enough about how amazing our experience was. Gina Shad is truly an amazing agent and both my husband & I were highly impressed with her. When viewing potential properties I was taken back at how rude other agents were, how unavailable they were to show houses! How bad their staging advice was! How they cut corners and didn’t follow the rules. I felt bad for their clients! Gina puts you and your sale/purchase first and foremost. She knows the intricate details of the sale, so IMPORTANT. She has the best lawyers and mortgage people, USE THEM!!! I cannot state that enough! You will not find a better agent in the business.
I feel I should also mention that our house was on the private listing for one week, 3 showings and SOLD! It never even made it to the MLS.
Gina was exemplary on the buy and the sell side. I know she may not have as many years in the business as some agents, but I came to see that as a strength. She really knows her stuff! And she made the entire process fun and enjoyable."
"We are very happy to give a stellar review for Gina Shad. She is a superstar realtor and expertly navigated our house selling process. We had purchased our house (April 2018) with Gina as our realtor; however, better career opportunities called us to the east coast and we had to put our house on the market, 6 months after we had bought it. We had no hesitation in employing Gina's services again as our realtor. Once again, she did a great job with her expert advice and suggestions to list the house on the market. After we had multiple offers, Gina's expertise in negotiating help us get the best price for our house!! I also want to add that we had left Chicago when we listed the house on the market and we could do it stress-free because Gina took great care of the house when it was on the market in our absence.
Best realtor ever!! We wish she can be our realtor in Boston too!! :) :)"
"Gina was truly amazing and a blessing as this was my childhood home and very emotional. She went above and beyond. Was there every step of the way and that gave me peace."
