"Amanda was amazing from start to finish. We worked with her to simultaneously sell our existing home and buy a new home. A few of the reasons that we enjoyed working with Amanda:
- She knows the market and gave us great advice throughout
- We had been in our condo for 10 years and had accumulated a lot of stuff/not updated much. Amanda was extremely helpful in guiding us to get our place ready to show.
- She is honest and straightforward. She shares what she's thinking, tells you when you are right or wrong, gets to the point, and doesn't waste any time for anyone in the process.
- We truly trusted her guidance and felt like it was a relationship in which she was invested and sought our best interests vs. just trying to make a sale.
- She was extremely responsive ALWAYS, and we never felt like she wasn't listening to our concerns and working very quickly to alleviate them.
In the end, we sold our place very quickly and took care of both the sale and purchase of our new home on the same closing date; financially the best situation we could have asked for. We have her to thank for getting us there. We went into this experience thinking that we did not need an agent (due to past experiences), and Amanda 200% proved us wrong. She did so much to help us in every way, and we couldn't have done it without her! I would never work with anyone else."



"Amanda and her team did a fantastic job selling our property in East Lakeview. She patiently walked us through the process, provided honest answers based on a thorough analysis of market trends, guided us to a reasonable but profitable asking price, and ultimately got multiple offers on our condo after just a few days on the market. Her hard work didn't end there; she and Jared were in constant communication with us as they managed the sale and the closing. We had already moved out of state, and they handled everything for us."



"Amanda was amazing! We were new to Chicago, so didn't have much experience in various neighborhoods, the buying process in the city, etc. She made everything seamless. We decided to buy in Bucktown, which I learned is a very hot market and properties move quickly. We found a property we loved and learned we were competing with another buyer. This is when Amanda's knowledge and network REALLY showed. She counseled us through the process to ensure we were the successful buyers. We moved in this week and LOVE IT! Amanda's quick to respond to inquiries and has even provided guidance on vendors to use in the area. I'd recommend her to anyone!"



"Amanda, Ressie and Jared were all very professional and incredibly helpful throughout the entire process. We were selling our home from 2,000 miles away and they made the process seamless. We couldn't be happier!"



"Amanda did a fantastic job!! Marketing was amazing and she was on top of things every step of the way."



"Amanda is a true professional. She runs her business the right way and does everything she says she will do. No surprises or empty promises"



"Amanda is phenomenal. Super proactive, responsive, knowledgeable, and personable. She really cares about her clients. It doesn’t matter how big or small the purchase. We bought a less expensive house and she was amazing. Highly recommend."



"This is the third time we have had the pleasure of working with Amanda. She is highly professional and passionate about her work. In a world where many people think they can do this themselves, Amanda and her team demonstrate the exceptional value a highly qualified realtor can bring. Amanda is an excellent communicator and highly knowledgeable about the market. She and her team are completely dedicated to their clients. We would never use anyone else."



"Amanda is an absolute rock star and I could not have imagined a better partner in our first time home buying process. My fiance and I came to Amanda through a glowing referral, and we were wowed from day one at the amount of expertise she brought to the process. From asking all the right questions in regards to our needs, to guiding us through expectations, to responding with lightning speed to every correspondence, to keeping an eye for detail with every listing, she was meticulous in making sure we were beyond satisfied. Ultimately, we found our perfect home (beyond what we could have imagined), and owe that largely to her. I should also mention that she is so accommodating and a delight to be around, giving us a sense of calm and confidence through the whole process. Thank you so much Amanda! We can't wait to work with you again!"



"Amanda and her team made the entire process seamless and stress free!"



"I am very impressed with Amanda's real estate knowledge and hard work ethic. Since I was a first time home seller, Amanda helped break things down for me, so I understood the whole process. I highly recommend working with Amanda in the future."



"Working with Amanda was a great experience! This was our first time going through the home buying process with a real estate professional and she was an incredible help; knowledgeable, reliable, personable! We definitely recommend her and will work with her again in the future."



"We worked with Amanda and her team to sell our West Loop condo (6 years after she helped us to find and buy it). Amanda is the best of the best - her knowledge of the local market, ability to break complex information down into understandable pieces and honesty every step of the way are second to none. We trust her advice implicitly and will definitely engage her again on our next new home search."



"Amanda was professional, knowledgeable and extremely helpful throughout our search and purchase process. As neither my fiancée nor myself are Chicago natives, her local expertise were invaluable as she considered and found for us relevant properties which met our desired characteristics.

She ensured we considered every critical aspect of the purchasing decision and was instrumental in negotiating our offer, inspection points, and follow-up near closing.

I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone looking to buy or sell, whether they have local knowledge or not. It was a true pleasure working with her and we absolutely LOVE our new house!"



"Amanda did a fantastic job!! Marketing was amazing and she was on top of things every step of the way."



"Amanda and her whole team were superb in their professionalism, patience, and attentiveness. From the very beginning she provided excellent advice and direction when needed. Amanda was timely with her responses, knew how to “coach” me when I was feeling overwhelmed, and had an excellent team of people who treated me as if I were their top priority. I highly recommend Amanda and her team for your home searching. You won’t regret it."



""Amanda was simply amazing throughout our home buying process. She surpassed our expectations in every single regard. Buying a house is a stressful experience but when you have a realtor like her, it is also an enjoyable experience that you can count on ending successfully!
We will never buy or sell a house in Chicago without using Amanda. I simply can't imagine someone doing a better job in that role than Amanda does. Obviously, I highly recommend Amanda McMillan.""



"I wouldn't work with any other real estate agent in Chicago but Amanda, or someone at her office. My husband and I both bought (10/2014) and sold (05/2017) our condo with Amanda, and the experience was great both times. She has her clients best interests at heart, asks questions that help guide them to make decisions, and provides expert advice when asked. There is nothing "cookie-cutter" about the way Amanda approaches her work. Each client is different and she takes time to get to know them. Everyone at Amanda's office and all of the referrals she provides are also amazing. We felt completely taken care of the throughout both processes. I could write paragraphs and paragraphs about why Amanda is the best in the business, but I'll stop here. She is the absolute best!"



"Honestly, don't even bother with other agents. We've bought/sold three places with Amanda now and wouldn't use anyone else in the city. We decided to move to the suburbs and not only did she have good advice, but she recommended a great agent as well. We've been to enough open houses to realize that there are a lot of sub-standard agents in the city. It's amazing how people expect you to drop thousands of dollars and can't answer basic questions about the property. And as for the e-agents, you get what you pay for. Amanda knows the latest market trends, how to appeal to buyers to stage your home, is in the know on pocket listings, understands the neighborhoods very well. Our most recent transaction with her was a sale and I know she advised a lot of the buyers who were from out of town perhaps a little better than their own agents.

It's also important to remember that this is a service industry. Amanda is responsive right away with prospective buyers (if you are selling) and reaching out to agents right away (if you are buying). From a seller's point of view, she makes the process as clear and easy as possible - with detailed step-by-step action items and is able to answer questions. Amanda will also be honest and upfront with you about realistic expectations on both buying and selling. She has been doing this (and doing this very well) for a very long time, so we trusted her expertise heavily. You also know that the team she has works to support her well. Finally, I will add that we were recommended to her by my husband's colleague who is very picky and difficult to please and if he had such high praise of her, we knew she would be a rockstar. She is."



"Working with Amanda to buy our house was FANTASTIC! My husband was looking for one style of house and I was looking for something different and somehow she found the perfect place for us in a short period of time. Amanda has fantastic attention to detail and is a real joy to work with. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their place!"



"Amanda was really great to work with. She made everything seemless and was very knowledgable. She led us through our first home buying experience, and we couldn't be happier with our decision. We would recommend Amanda to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home."



"Amanda, Ressie and Jared were all very professional and incredibly helpful throughout the entire process. We were selling our home from 2,000 miles away and they made the process seamless. We couldn't be happier!"



"Amanda was AMAZING to say the least. Professional, thoughtful, thorough, kind, flexible...I could go on and on. Proof being that we sold with in 4 days with as many offers-OVER LIST PRICE! She is simply put the BEST!!!"



"This was my second sale transaction with Amanda. She is the best. She has given me great advice, she'll make your listing look amazing, and she'll advertise it better than anybody else. Both of my properties were priced appropriately and both sold quickly and over asking price. What more can you ask for!"



"Amanda goes above and beyond! She is true professional, and really cares about placing her clients in a home & neighborhood that's the best fit. She guided us through every aspect of the process (which was particularly stressful for me as a first-time buyer). We couldn't be happier with our new condo!"



"Amanda is wonderful to work with! She is timely, honest, and diligent, and always makes herself available to her clients. She attended every showing and provided helpful feedback each time. We highly recommend Amanda!"



"Amanda is fantastic! Responsive, supportive, honest, and a true professional. I never doubted my decision to work with her as my realtor... and more importantly, I never felt pushed into a property/neighborhood I wasnt interested in. Would definitely recommend Amanda to friends and family."



"Amanda is a true professional. She runs her business the right way and does everything she says she will do. No surprises or empty promises"



"Amanda is phenomenal. Super proactive, responsive, knowledgeable, and personable. She really cares about her clients. It doesn’t matter how big or small the purchase. We bought a less expensive house and she was amazing. Highly recommend."



"Amanda was realistic and thoughtful in her advice and recommendations and overall a truly excellent partner for us in our home selling adventure. Very, very pleased with the experience from beginning to end!"



"Amanda was professional, efficient, and knowledgeable. I wouldn't use anyone else."



"Thank you for making my first residential real estate purchase as seamless and expedited as possible. The guidance, constant communication, and general straight-forward approach were greatly appreciated. It is one of the biggest purchases of most people's lives that also contains many unknowns, but I always felt that I was in good hands."



"Amber and Amanda provided outstanding service in helping us sell our condo. They were thorough and professional throughout the process, keeping us informed at every step. The weekly market reports helped us discern the fair market value, and their prospecting efforts yielded three times the normal traffic for condos like ours. They earned every one of the five stars we're giving them, as well as our continuing gratitude and respect."



"Extremely impressed with the amount of traffic that @properties brought through my unit. The marketing and communication was top notch. I would use them again or recommend them to a friend in a heartbeat. What a great experience! @properties took care of everything form beginning to end."



"Amanda has been an incredible partner in buying our first home. She was friendly, diligent, and supportive throughout the entire process. I highly recommend anyone looking for a home in Chicago area to consider Amanda!"



"Amanda was professional and proactive throughout the entire sale. She made us feel very comfortable and was quick to answer any questions that we had along the way. I would recommend her services to friends and family and would not hesitate to work with her again."



"Amanda and Bethanie were so helpful to us as first time home buyers. They were always available for questions and exceeded our expectations in every way"



"Amanda and Tiffany were responsive from the start. They helped us get started as first time home buyers and were available and responsive from the beginning to the end. Tiffany was consistent and reliable in terms of making time to show us numerous properties. Both Amanda and Tiffany were able to answer all of our questions. We really liked working with both of them and they will be our agents for the near future!"



"Amanda makes the entire process easy. We've worked with her to buy and sell, and she gets the job done on either end. She will fight for you as her clients and her response rate is nearly immediate no matter what time of day or night. She's what you want in an agent in all regards. A top performer."



"I'm a first time homebuyer and had a wonderful experience with Amanda--She is incredibly knowledgable, patient, and responsive. She made sure I was comfortable every step of the way, explained the home buying process in detail, used her connections to get us in to see properties early, and ultimately negotiated a tricky closing to get me a great deal on a home that I love. I felt completely taken care of throughout this process and knew Amanda would answer my questions any time of day or night. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Amanda and will definitely have friends and family use her in the future."



"Amanda is an excellent realtor. We worked with her a few years ago to purchase a condo and sell our prior condo, and then we worked with her this year to buy and sell again. She and her team are on top of all the details and aim to make the process as easy as possible for her clients. Amanda is extremely analytical and knows the Chicago market inside out. Best of all, we trust her completely. She is an excellent negotiator and exceeded all our expectations. We adore her personally too and have come to consider her a good friend. We have referred her to several friends who have also had great experiences. We really can't say enough good things about her and her team."



"CAN”T IMAGINE FINDING A BETTER REALTOR

Amanda sold a condo for my wife and I in Sprint 2010. In our initial meeting with her, she provided detailed analysis of the market and her recommendations of how she was going to sell our condo. She blew us away with the presentation. From there she helped us stage the condo before it was listed. During the short time our condo was on the market, she was there every step of the way - providing detailed feedback on all showings and, more importantly, relentlessly followed up with every potential buyer that came through our condo. Her communication throughout the entire process was bar none - we were never wondering where we stood or what was next. We quickly received an offer and the negotiation process went seamlessly - Amanda was able to close the deal within 24 hours. On top of all this, she found us a wonderful rental unit for us to move in to after closing. We couldn't have asked more from Amanda and would recommend her to anyone."



"I sold my condo in the West Loop with Amanda's in May 2014. She also represented me when I purchased the unit in June 2006.

Amanda and her team are as top notch as they come. She demonstrates her clear understanding of the market, put together a comprehensive marketing plan, and was in frequent contact with throughout the process.

I wholeheartedly and without hesitation recommend that anyone looking to buy or sell in Chicago speak with Amanda when choosing an agent. She will provide you with a data-driven assessment of the market. Her experience and professionalism will be evident in all your interactions with her. You'll be glad you chose her to represent you."



"Amanda is the best! I've dealt with other agents who did not have a fraction of the professionalism that Amanda possesses. She takes care of everything you could ever think (or not think) of, and is always available when needed."



"I selected Amanda as real estate agent due to the numerous great comments I found in the web. I was doubtful about it but, already from the first meeting, she exceeded my expectations. She is very patient, extremely organized and always available for any explanations or assistance. She is very dedicated to her clients: she helped me out through the entire home buying process and even later!
You can easily see her great expertise in the field and her passion for the job.
It was a real pleasure working with her"



"I highly recommend Amanda for anyone looking to buy in the Chicago area whether a first time or repeat home buyer. Amanda was a recommendation to us and we have worked with Chicago Home Partner on three different occasions. Amanda helped us buy our first property, sell that property with some difficult circumstances and purchase our current home. Amanda knows Chicago and knew what we were looking for making the buying process much easier!"



"Highly recommend. Amanda helped my wife and I navigate each step of the home buying process. Her knowledge of the Chicago real estate market gave us comfort in our final selection, and her ability to negotiate with the seller locked in the deal at under asking price. Her method proved educational and invaluable, and we will highly recommend Amanda to anyone that asks."



"Not all real estate agents are created equal. I learned this while selling my condo in September of 2012. I actually had a referral for an agent, but it became immediately obvious this agent was not a good fit. So I did my homework and came across Amanda McMillan and Chicago Home Partner. Amanda was responsive, yet she didn’t rush the process. After meeting with me, doing a walk thru of the property and researching the neighborhood and similar properties—she came up with a formal plan to sell my place. She was professional in presenting the plan, explaining what we needed to do, why we needed to do it and how/when we would do it. I would have expected this much attention to detail and advertising resources for more expensive properties, but this was a 2-bed/1-bath in Logan Square- I was pleasantly surprised. Once we came to agreement, she got to work and literally kept every commitment. I was informed, but did not have to do anything in preparation of selling. The results? My condo had 1 open house with 27 visitors and 3 offers in 4 hours. We accepted the cash offer that was above our listing price and we closed exactly a month to the date of the open house. There’s not enough praise I can give for Amanda and her team’s expertise and abilities to get the job done. What a great experience."



"My wife and I couldn't have been happier using Amanda as our real estate agent to sell our home and would recommend her to anyone looking for a great agent. She is very thorough, communicates constantly, explains everything in as much detail as you want, and is always very quick to get back when you email or text her. She really payed attention to our thoughts, needs, personal situation and always took them into account when she discussed strategies with us.
When my wife and I first decided to put our condo up for sale late last year, we knew we were going to be in for a rough ride since we bought at the height of the real estate bubble and the market was/is not in great shape, especially for condos in Chicago. After searching every website imaginable I thought I'd never find an agent that I was confident could do the job. Then I came across Amanda's Yelp profile and immediately felt comfortable with her given all of her feedback. Amanda did not disappoint. After our first meeting with her, we knew she was the person for the job.
If you are looking for an agent to list your property, you will not regret picking Amanda. I just wish my wife and I were staying in Chicago, because I would have loved to use Amanda to find our new home, it is going to be hard to find another Agent that is even half as dedicated to our needs as Amanda has been. I couldn't recommend her more."



"In one of the worse real esate markets in January of 2010, Amanda was able to help me sell my condo quickly and for the price I wanted. Throughout the entire process she was extremely helpfull in sharing her expert knowledge from market analysis to staging my condo. I would definitely recomend her and her team to all my friends and associates. Thanks Amanda for a job well done!"



"Amanda McMillan is the most competent, consummate professional I ever worked with. I came upon her totally by accident while surfing the net for an agent. What good fortune! In the year that she has been my agent, we have concluded 3 transactions. She is a true professional and has a keen sense of how much involvement the client wants during the process. She was 100% on target with me. She is totally prepared, and her attention to detail is off the charts. She uses every tool at her disposal to help her clients achieve the end result. I give my highest recommendation to her."



"Amanda is a gem. She patiently worked with us on our condo sale for two+ years! The market was soft and her advice was to rent it until the market strengthened which translated to $100K in our pockets. We had a host of buyer issues but she counseled us through the entire process."



"Our overall experience with Amanda was excellent. We were first-time home sellers and Amanda quickly and clearly took us through the process. She listened to our concerns and questions and provided helpful advice and knowledgeable answers at all times. With Amanda's help and guidance, our home selling process went as smoothly as possible in a very challenging market. She guided us through the staging, pricing, showing, and closing processes and also responded immediately with information and feedback from prospective buyers. With Amanda's help we were able to close on our home within a few months of listing!"



"We cannot say enough good things about working with Amanda! From helping us navigate our home search to negotiating a great deal, Amanda was amazing to work with and always made us feel like she truly had our best interest at heart.

In addition to being extremely hardworking and knowledgeable about the Chicago real estate market, Amanda really takes the time to understand your priorities to help ensure that you find the perfect house for you,

Having friends who have used several agents in Chicago, we were so impressed not only with the amount of time and effort Amanda put into helping us find an ideal home, but also with her negotiating advice and guidance throughout the negotiating process. We highly recommend Amanda."



"Amanda was extremely professional and knowledgeable in my home buying experience. She was a guiding light, providing me with the information I needed to make informed decisions that would be right for me based off desired objectives in purchasing a home.

Her counsel continued even after closing when I ran into a challenging water leak situation involving the new neighbor. I know that in future I can always reach out to her to get advice beyond just home buying but in regards to home decisions, like best investments to increase home value."



"We have worked with Amanda for three purchases and two sales; with our first we were new to the city. The reason we chose to go back the second and third time was the outstanding service that we received. Buying and selling a house is not easy, but the support we received from Amanda and the CHP team made it feel seamless. Amanda takes the time to get to know you and personalize your experience. She is always available to answer questions and ensure that you make educated choices. Amanda brings with her an extended team of resources to support you through the process including mortgage, and legal; all which have been great to work with. We have recommended Amanda to friends and co-workers and would highly recommend her to you. She is definitely top notch when it comes to real estate agents."



"Amanda was a phenomenal agent to work with. My wife and I lived in different cities and were coordinating with Amanda to sell our property. To say the least, she was on top of it. She was always responsive and thorough. We received detailed email-updates or phone calls after each open house. She made the process painless (which everyone who is reading this knows is difficult to do). We could not recommend her more and know for a fact our entire family will be using her moving forward."



"The. Very. Best!! We have worked with Amanda for the purchase of our last two homes and simply put, she is the very best in the business. Our most-recent transaction was a purchase of a new condo - one with very specific criteria that my wife and I outlined for Amanda. She had her finger on the pulse of seemingly every available property, developer and agent representing potential properties that may not have even been be on the market. Her dedication to her clients is second-to-none as she is more responsive than most anyone we know (including co-workers!). She also was responsible for managing the sale of our unit, which she handled perfectly. Another outstanding experience. We can’t say enough about her professionalism and performance. You are in great hands with Amanda at every turn."



"Amanda is a consummate professional with deep knowledge of the Chicago market. We worked with her during both the purchase and sale of our place, and both times our experience was excellent! Amanda is very analytical and quickly helped us focus our needs, and separate noise from true potential opportunities.

During the sale, while we were away in another state, she helped with positioning, pricing and staging of our place. She also has a network of excellent contractors who are very professional and and vetted by her.

Most importantly, Amanda invests in her client relationships - she helped us find a place to rent in CA (she interviewed and shortlisted realtors for us), and tapped into her broad network to help us with real estate needs in foreign markets (New Zealand). We think of her more as a friend than our realtor!

We highly recommend Amanda to anyone with real estate needs in Chicago! She’s the best!"



"Amanda was our SUPERSTAR realtor when we sold our house in Bucktown in Chicago. She is extremely professional and knowledgeable and guided us through all aspects of the sale and in case you don't know: there are A LOT! We particularly appreciated that she personally did all our showings, gave us immediate feedback and followed up with all realtors to get further information, which she also relayed to us. Selling our house in a difficult market wasn't easy for us and for her, but Amanda always had a well-thought-out strategy ready to go and we couldn't have wished for a better partner than Amanda. When we were about to freak out about various situations she always stayed calm, reassuring and knew exactly what to do, who to call and how to handle basically anything that came up. We also relied on her to refer various contractors for getting things fixed quickly and reliably.
Amanda is also an expert negotiator and when we got multiple offers she pointed out all the pros and cons and gave us expert advice on how to best proceed. You can tell that she is a very thoughtful and experienced agent and we trust her 100% and always felt that she had our very best interest at heart. We wish we could have taken her with us for our house-hunting in Los Angeles but if we would ever buy or sell a house in Chicago again we would without a doubt work with Amanda again. We cannot express enough how grateful we still are for her hard work and dedication and how much we can recommend Amanda to be your realtor."



"Amanda helped both purchase and sell our condo and we couldn't have asked for a better person in Chicago to assist us through the process which is generally very stressful. She really understood the market, calculated the right time to list and got us very close to asking price of our home. Amanda and her team are true professionals and I'd recommend them for all future home buyers and sellers."



"Amanda is an amazing professional in every sense of the word. She provided us with excellent advice on how to best sell our home and guided us through uncharted waters in a calm and consistent manner. I cannot imagine working with anyone else in the future besides Amanda!"



"I've known, and worked with Amanda since 2010. It's hard to imagine a better realtor than her, both on a professional and personal levels. She is honest, trustworthy, extremely professional in everything she does and always puts her client's needs and interests before hers. Her patience, vast knowledge and absolute commitment to her work and clients are rare virtues these days. It's safe to say she's truly "one of a kind"."



"Amanda is really amazing! She exceeds expectations in all regards and she was invaluable in our recent home purchase with a difficult seller. We have already recommended her to our friends."



"I had been contemplating selling my condo for a couple of years but was somewhat hesitant about going through with the whole process. A coworker of mine recommended that I work with Amanda and I am so happy that she did! Everything about Amanda was ON POINT! She demonstrated that she is an expert on pricing in the Chicago market and getting the property market ready. She is extremely responsive, hard working, and genuinely cares about her clients. I also dealt with some challenges in selling my property and Amanda was extremely helpful in guiding us through everything and negotiating the final sales terms. I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone looking for a real estate agent in the Chicago market. Not only does she get the job done, but she gets the job done well!"



"I recently worked with Amanda during the purchase of a condo in Chicago and I can recommend her with tremendous enthusiasm and great confidence. I will not execute another real estate transaction without her. She is absolutely outstanding and surrounds herself with a team of similarly skilled professionals that deliver incredibly high quality, efficient and confident services from start to finish.

Amanda is one of those people that would excel at anything she does but I found she her particularly outstanding in three key areas.

1) Helping me understand my needs (even ones that were not personally understood at the start) and then focusing my search on those requirements. It was an evolution and Amanda steered me gently but purposefully. By the end, I had a very specific and well defined set of criteria. It made "pulling the trigger" easy when that time arrived.

2) Negotiating on a chosen property. This is a very delicate process and Amanda's approach was magical. The timing, response strategy, and approach were all handled beautifully. In the end we landed in a place I was quite happy with and at a lower cost than what I expected. I have full confidence I got a great property at a very fair price.

3) Steering the process through to a successful closing. She and her team managed the myriad of details effortlessly all the while making sure my best interests were guarded - all along the way addressing many details and contractual clauses that I had no idea needed to be covered. I am certain in less skilled hands many would have been overlooked to my ultimate detriment.

Buying a home is a large transaction and an emotional one. Working with Amanda will allow you to execute it with confidence you are getting the right property for you, at a very fair price, on the schedule you require and with the proper terms and conditions met."



"We couldn't have been happier with the services Amanda provided. Our home sold quickly and over asking price just one day after our open house! The fact that she always shows the house herself and doesn't use a lock box is also great. We would recommend Amanda to anyone looking to buy or sell in Chicago."



"Helped the first time buying experience!

Very knowledgeable on property area, buying process/regulations, considerate of buyers thoughts and circumstances."



"Amanda was amazing! We were new to Chicago, so didn't have much experience in various neighborhoods, the buying process in the city, etc. She made everything seamless. We decided to buy in Bucktown, which I learned is a very hot market and properties move quickly. We found a property we loved and learned we were competing with another buyer. This is when Amanda's knowledge and network REALLY showed. She counseled us through the process to ensure we were the successful buyers. We have been in the house for 8 months and LOVE IT! Amanda's quick to respond to inquiries and has even provided guidance on vendors to use in the area. I'd recommend her to anyone!"



"We have worked with Amanda on the sale of two homes and purchase of one home. We can't say enough great things about working with her. She truly seems to care about her clients and is extremely responsive, provides excellent advice and has deep expertise in real estate matters. She has surrounded herself with a great team that make the buying and selling process much less stressful. If you are in the Chicago market, we highly highly recommend her!"



"We lived out of state, and also had a tenant currently in our condo, so were worried about listing our unit. Amanda and her team communicated early and often throughout the process and made it very easy for us, especially considering we were out of state. The process was seamless and led to the sale of our unit within the first week on the market for asking price."



"I was looking for a results-oriented professional to help me with the sale of my condo. Amanda provided what she promised. I couldn't ask for more. Highly recommended."



"Highly informed professional in the Illinois and Chicago market. She catered extremely well to our well-informed background of the market and brought additional insights to understanding the environment and economic status of the Chicago area. Amanda and her team provide deep analytics that made us feel comfortable that we were making the best deal possible."



"Amanda's knowledge of the local real estate market was beyond impressive. She was right on in pricing our condo and stopped us from paying too much for a house. She and her entire team were fantastic and always available to answer questions and provide updates. I would highly recommend Amanda if you are looking to buy and/or sell real estate."



"Amanda did a fantastic job!! Marketing was amazing and she was on top of things every step of the way."



"Amanda was incredibly knowledgeable about the area we were looking at and the city in general. She made the process as smooth and stress-free as possible and was always incredibly accessible. She was able to answer all of our questions and smooth out any bumps that we hit during the process."



"I used Amanda to both sell my condo and buy a new condo. She was great! The process of selling and buying is super stressful but she and her team made it easier and helped the process go smoothly.

She takes the time to get to know you and asks more than just the general questions so she can really get to know you. She won't let you make any snap decisions, which I appreciated! She is very patient and thorough which were both key to me and my search.

She is honest, forthright and always has your best interests at heart. I would recommend Amanda to anyone looking to sell or buy a home."



"I cannot say enough positive things about Amanda. She is the most knowledgable, experienced and assertive agent I have ever worked with, who is also equally kind and down to earth. Amanda 100% knows her stuff. She is an expert about Chicago neighborhoods, schools, the market, home repair, how to negotiate and when to walk away. What I have appreciated most about working with her is that she is truly a partner and consultant. She isn't just trying to make a sale; she genuinely wants to ensure you end up in the right home, in the right area for your family. I completely trust her advice, and have felt proud to have her representing us through both the selling of our home and the search for a new one. She's clearly busy with many clients depending on her, but throughout the whole process, I've honestly felt like we were her sole focus. Even in this tough and competitive market, Amanda makes it all SO much easier - and actually enjoyable!"



"We heard from a friend that Amanda was the best in the business. Tenacious; hyper-focused; completely dedicated. She met those expectations. But exceeded in other incredibly important areas like warmth, care and in delivering against a promise of being a long-term partner for us - which is the support we need as new homeowners in this city.

Totally positive experience with Amanda - we truly feel fortunate and lucky to have worked with her. And as long as Amanda is willing to have us, she will always be our agent."



"Amanda was recommended to us by a neighbor in our building since we were looking for a broker to help us with selling our condo. It was a fantastic experience from beginning to end. She was very professional and diligent during the entire process. We were very impressed by her utilization of a combination of data, multichannel marketing, and local intuition of the Chicago market. Our condo went under contract within 10 days of the listing and Amanda was also able to refer us to a suburban broker who also successfully assisted us with a home purchase."



"My wife and I enlisted Amanda and CHP's services to sell our condo in the winter of 2014, and we really could not imagine having a better experience. At our first sit down (and I stress SIT DOWN - Amanda makes time to meet in person) Amanda gave us a complete rundown around the state of the local market - complete with background detailing the last several years of local activity in addition to her perspective around the direction moving forward. Before our first conversation had ended we knew we were in great hands with Amanda. Not only was it clear that she was in complete control of our situation, but she followed through during every step of the process from determining a price point, to managing the pictures and marketing of our property, to executing the transaction. From our perspective, every step of the way was 100% stress free. And for those that look at results as all that matters - we can attest that Amanda had 4 offers within 72 hours of our first open house, and ended up helping us to sell our condo for above asking price! We cannot say enough about Amanda and her team - they're the best in the business if you're buying or selling in the city."



"I worked with Amanda and team in spring 2015 to sell my condo. I was tired of being a landlord, and ready to let the property go -- with some mixed feelings about the timing. Amanda made the process seamless and stress-free. She helped me handle some repairs, stage the property for optimal appeal and weigh all my options. We had two offers within two weeks and lots of interest in the property. Negotiations went smoothly from start to close and I couldn't have been happier with the end result. We got the price we were hoping for, quickly and painlessly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Amanda to friends...."



"Amanda was recommended to me by a trusted friend, so I expected it would be a good fit--and all of my expectations were exceeded.
I was ready to sell my condo, but hesitant about the timing. Amanda quickly helped me review industry and neighborhood data, and make informed decisions about pricing, approach and all the options. She helped me coordinate needed repairs, stage the property to optimize its appeal and she tackled the market full speed ahead. She was responsive, professional, relatable and fabulous to work with.
Bottom line, I had multiple offers within two weeks and got what I wanted, quickly and stress-free. What more can you ask for? I will not hesitate to work with Amanda again and refer her to friends and colleagues along the way...."



"I have worked with Amanda a couple times in the last 5 years. First to rent my condo and then, more recently to sell it. I have had an exceptionally positive experience with her. When I first contacted her, she had done a lot of research to determine what I might be able to sell it for and actually convinced me to wait and rent. She conducted a thorough review and found great tenants, advising me (first time landlord) on all the finer points of leasing. When that tenant moved out, she helped me find another, again being very forth coming about things I might want to consider regarding the possible candidates. She has always been very honest, balanced, and fact-based in her advice, which I appreciate. When the second tenants ended their lease recently, she again did significant research and suggested that I put the condo on the market. She had a great team of painters, stager, and a lawyer on her team so I didn't need to worry about finding them. We listed and we had two offers after the first open house. Clearly she and her team had done tremendous work in advance to drum up interest, which I appreciated. She shepherded the entire process through to close, which was great as I don't live in Chicago any longer. I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone looking to buy, sell, rent, or lease real estate in Chicago. No doubt in my mind she is the best and I only wish I had used her when I originally purchased my condo!"



"I cannot say enough good things about Amanda and her team. As a first time home buyer, everything seems new, a bit scary, and a lot overwhelming. Amanda and her teammate Bethanie made everything so easy for me. When we first met, Amanda sat me down and asked me to describe my ideal condo, room by room. I must admit, I hadn't given much thought to some of the rooms (what do you ask for in a bathroom, a toilet?), but as we talked, I could tell she was really considering what I wanted. When we first went out, Amanda and Bethanie took me to see five condos, each of them featuring most of the things on my wish list. Amanda is also very practical; while I might want a penthouse condo with W/D in unit, my budget scoffed at the idea (penthouses in Chicago start at $500k? Who knew?!). Another thing, Amanda and Bethanie were up front with everything. I wanted to live in a high rise, but they showed me other types of condos as well, like walkups and flats. This gave me perspective, to see what I could get with my budget if I was willing to look at new things. It was immensely helpful because I came to understand exactly what I was willing (and not willing) to deal with in my new home. In the end, I found a great little place in my preferred neighborhood, and under my budget! Amanda was great through negotiations, and another teammate Amber laid out a step-by-step checklist of everything that I needed to expect. There were no surprises and everything went so smoothly. Amanda had recommendations for everything, from lenders (thanks Joe!) to inspectors to even electricians. I couldn't ask for a better process, a better experience, or a better team."



"Amanda was amazing! We were new to Chicago, so didn't have much experience in various neighborhoods, the buying process in the city, etc. She made everything seamless. We decided to buy in Bucktown, which I learned is a very hot market and properties move quickly. We found a property we loved and learned we were competing with another buyer. This is when Amanda's knowledge and network REALLY showed. She counseled us through the process to ensure we were the successful buyers. We moved in this week and LOVE IT! Amanda's quick to respond to inquiries and has even provided guidance on vendors to use in the area. I'd recommend her to anyone!"



"Excellent experience in dealing with Amanda. Very knowledgeable and well connected."



"We initially contacted Amanda to see if it was the right time to place our condo on the market. She gave a thorough, honest opinion of what was happening and what our options were. We decided to list with Amanda. Her and her team communicated early and often throughout the process and made it very easy for us, especially considering we were out living outside of Illinois at the time. Very seamless, easy process that ended in a quick (full price) sale of our property."



"Amanda did a fantastic job. All of her efforts focused on finding the right home for my wife and me, and her approach was methodical and planned. The properties we saw with Amanda ranged from those we loved and properties Amanda knew wouldn't work. By the end of the process, Amanda's approach to home buying and her knowledge of the city left us certain we made the right decision. She even got us under-ask!"



"Working with Amanda to buy our house was FANTASTIC! My husband was looking for one style of house and I was looking for something different and somehow she found the perfect place for us in a short period of time. Amanda has fantastic attention to detail and is a real joy to work with. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their place!"



"Amanda went above and beyond for us in every regard during our home search. We could not be happier with our choice of her and @properties. Thanks Amanda!"



"Amanda and her team were absolutely fantastic to work with. As a first time home buyer and new to Chicago, we needed a lot of hand holding throughout the process. Amanda was always there to answer the questions and help us through it. I would recommend Amanda and her team to anyone!"



"We found Amanda to be exceptionally competent, responsive, and professional. Her knowledge of the downtown market served us very well. Look no further than Amanda for all your buying and selling real estate needs in Chicago."



"Amanda and Tiffany are absolutely phenomenal agents. I bought from out of state, and they made the process as painless as it could be. When I flew out to view the 12+ units we discussed, Tiffany was a fantastic guide. The appointments were well prepared, fun, and quick without being rushed. They found exactly what I was looking for, were diligent advocates during negotiations, and every recommendation they made was right on target. We got the price I wanted on a condo I love! I will definitely go to them again and will recommend them to anyone looking for agents in Chicago. I've never worked with a better team!"



"Amanda and her team are amazing! In addition to outstanding industry knowledge, the timely follow through and consistent updates made me feel as if I was their only client. This definitely goes down as one of my best customer service experiences."



"Amanda was fantastic! The constant updates, lightening speed response time and attention to detail made me feel as if I was her only client. This definetly goes down as one of the best customer service experiences ever."



"Ms. McMillan is an outstanding business professional and client advocate. The real estate market is multi-faceted and I, like most clients today, are much more informed about the market than in the past. Ms. McMillan plays well into the modern client and investor and provided detailed historical data that assured us our decisions were well thought-out and ensured our final deal was fair to all parties. We would entrust our future real estate decisions to her and her team."



"Highly recommended! Amanda helped my husband and I buy and sell our first home. She was patient and helped us understand the market. She is incredibly professional, responsive, and hard-working. I recommend her to all of our friends. Look no further..."



"Amanda was terrific. I'd tried selling this a few years ago through another broker and it was a disaster. Amanda's advice and guidance of what I needed to do was spot on. She advised patience to repair the damage the other broker had done, so we rented this for a year and a half (and she helped me find great tenants, too) and then put the place back on the market. The results were night and day. I followed her advice on what needed to be changed and we had eight offers within a day."



"Amanda and her team made the entire process seamless and stress free!"



"Great job second time! Tiffany performed superbly. Thank you Tiffany, thank you Amanda."



"Amanda was on top of everything from the initial visit to the final closing, the process went very smoothly. She provided great advice that allowed us to market the property the right way. She kept in constant communication after every showing"



"Amanda is a very professional, efficient, and responsible broker!"



"We have been talking to Amanda for over 2 years as we got ready to actually look for a home. Throughout the home buying process she has been very helpful and available for all our questions and even now that we've closed she's still in touch with us and making sure everything is going smoothly as we move in. We truly feel informed, supported and cared for by Amanda and her team."



"Amanda is a consummate professional. She is reliable and trustworthy. She always is on top of things and takes ownership of listing and sale from start to finish. She strives to provide excellent customer service which I feel like, unfortunately, isn't common amongst realtors. She is head and shoulders above any other realtor we have worked with."



"I'm writing this testimonial after closing my second transaction with Amanda in as many years, and she was invaluable each time! We talked extensively about our game plan in the months before we went to market. When we were ready to list, Amanda's marketing effort through her network of agents brought us incredible foot traffic to the open house and two competing offers within 3 days! We feel fortunate to have received the introduction to Amanda a few years ago, and she'll remain a friend that we'll turn to for property searches in the years ahead."



"I think what I liked most about working with Amanda is that during our initial chat, she got to know me as well as she could so she could pair me up with an appropriate broker on her team to deal with the day-to-day. Her choice to bring Bethanie into the mix was a great one, as she and I are so like-minded that every time I went out for showings, it was like meeting up to hang out with a good friend. We hit some bumps in the road along the way, and I felt super uncomfortable with the reality of the current market in Chicago (i.e., you have to move REALLY fast to get something good), but these ladies did all they could to ease my anxieties and solve problems with me."



"Tiffany Vondran was extremely helpful during the whole process of renting my unit. She was quick, efficient, got a great tenant, and got a price higher than asking after negotiating. She also had the foresight to see that my unit showed very well the way my current tenant has it decorated and initiated photos to be taken for when I put it on the market for sale in 2 years. Tiffany puts me at ease with confidence that everything will be handled well! I would recommended to her to anyone that may need an agent."



"Amanda and Tiffany were responsive from the start. They helped us get started as first time home buyers and were available and responsive from the beginning to the end. Tiffany was consistent and reliable in terms of making time to show us numerous properties. Both Amanda and Tiffany were able to answer all of our questions. We really liked working with both of them and they will be our agents for the near future!"



"Amanda and her team did an impeccable job helping us through our first-time homebuying process. They were amazingly efficient in responding to our calls and emails, and Amanda always made time to explain the different parts of the process as we searched for our home. Amanda and her team were extremely personable, patient, and knowledgeable. All of her recommendations and connections in the real estate world helped make the process as smooth and painless as possible. We knew we had someone on our side during the entire experience. I couldn't have asked for a better real estate agent and I definitely plan on staying in touch with Amanda for any of my future real estate needs."



"Amanda and team were so helpful to us as first time home buyers. They were always available for questions and exceeded our expectations in every way"



"Amanda is a complete professional. Her knowledge of and experience in the marketplace gave her a very credible voice in helping us to find the best way to position the sale of our condo. She was also very adept at being able to change course throughout the sale process. There was nothing formulaic about the plan of attack she had for us; it was all very customized to our property and our needs. I trusted her advice implicitly."



"Amanda was professional and proactive throughout the entire sale. She made us feel very comfortable and was quick to answer any questions that we had along the way. I would recommend her services to friends and family and would not hesitate to work with her again."



"Amanda and her team were absolutely incredible to work with. We began working with Amanda 6 months ago, at which time she led us through the process of selling our home in Chicago and buying a new home. We were very impressed with Amanda's services. We sold our home extremely quickly and she helped us find a new home we loved. After a very short period of time, we needed to sell our new home due to job relocation. Amanda took charge and led us through this stressful situation with ease. We are so grateful for Amanda's services and recommend her without hesitation."



"Amanda has been an incredible partner in buying our first home. She was friendly, diligent, and supportive throughout the entire process. I highly recommend anyone looking for a home in Chicago area to consider Amanda!"



"Amanda was consistently amazing. We trusted her every step of the way. She was supportive but realistic and always had our best interests/unique needs in mind. We were most grateful to have Amanda working with us on the negotiations through closing. She's incredibly thorough and seriously understands real estate in Chicago. We would recommend her to anyone that asks!"



"I cannot say enough good things about Amanda and her team. As a first time home buyer, everything seems new, a bit scary, and a lot overwhelming. Amanda and her teammate made everything so easy for me. When we first met, Amanda sat me down and asked me to describe my ideal condo, room by room.

"I will never work with another broker. Amanda is the consummate professional. She is highly dedicated to her clients, which was particularly evident in our transaction. We were first-time buyers and bought a foreclosure, which turned out to be an incredibly frustrating and challenging 4 month ordeal. Amanda and her team worked tirelessly and conscientiously to close the deal, and Amanda was a great counselor throughout the process. I cannot say enough about Amanda. She is intelligent and exemplifies the pinnacle the professionalism and customer service. We are so grateful to Amanda and her team!"



"Extremely impressed with the amount of traffic that @properties brought through my unit. The marketing and communication was top notch. I would use them again or recommend them to a friend in a heartbeat. What a great experience! @properties took care of everything form beginning to end."



"We cannot even begin to express how satisfied we were with Amanda McMillan and her team. We had the privilege of working with Amanda throughout the sale of our house and the purchase of our new house. From the beginning of the process, Amanda listened to our needs and responded appropriately. She was easy to contact and was available to us any time we needed her. She made the entire process seamless and enjoyable. We would recommend her without hesitation to our family and friends and anyone else looking for a truly exceptional real estate agent."



"Amanda was great! She took the time to answer all our questions and was very knowledgeable and professional the whole time. We attended an open house on a Sunday afternoon and thanks to her quick and smart negotiating, we got a great condo for a great price!She was a pleasure to work with and will definitely recommend her to other people. Very happy with our condo purchase!"



"Very professional and detail oriented. Always a pleasure working with Amanda."



"Amanda was a joy to work with!"



"Both Amanda and team were incredibly helpful and informative during my search for my first property. Many thanks to them both!"



"Amanda is very knowledgeable and was always available providing guidance and support throughout the entire process. She was kind, patient and extremely helpful to us. She is a professional to emulate."



"Very quick turnaround from first contact to getting MLS listings sent to my email to viewing/signing the property and lease. Agent was very helpful in talking through our questions and various concerns we had regarding our search. Definitely put us at ease when moving to a new area of Chicago."



"Amanda and team provided outstanding service in helping us sell our condo. They were thorough and professional throughout the process, keeping us informed at every step. The weekly market reports helped us discern the fair market value, and their prospecting efforts yielded three times the normal traffic for condos like ours. They earned every one of the five stars we're giving them, as well as our continuing gratitude and respect."



"Amanda and her team did the usual outstanding job I have come to expect. They never disappoint."



"Amanda was amazing. She was professional, courteous, patient, knowledgeable, and extremely detail oriented. I would recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home. We live out-of-state and sold our home remotely and Amanda and her team helped with every aspect of the preparation and completion of the sale. And our unit was not a luxury deal by any means so the fact that we received top notch attention speaks volumes to Amanda and her team. Thank you!!"



"Amanda is an amazing real estate professional! She knows the maker inside and out, is honest and upfront, and genuine in wanting to the best job for her clients as possible!! She goes above and beyond . I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is selling or looking to buy a home!!!"


"In addition to helping us buy our first condo in Chicago, Amanda helped us sell our place when we had the opportunity to move to the East Coast. Her expert knowledge of Chicago-area real estate issues, friendly approach, and professional contacts helped make buying (and later selling) our home a positive experience. I highly recommend Amanda McMillan and continue to refer her to friends and family."


"I found Amanda through a friend's recommendation, and she was outstanding in helping me purchase my current home. Throughout our interactions, I felt that Amanda really took care of me, and helped to take a lot of stress out of the home buying process. Once I made a decision on a condo, Amanda was great in communicating and following up with all parties involved, including my attorney and mortgage broker. Amanda is always easily reached by phone or e-mail, and also always responds very quickly to messages. Her dedication and diligence in getting me through this process were outstanding, and I have no doubt that I can count on her for assistance any time - even though my purchase is now complete."


"Amanda was crucial to our successful sale and I could not recommend her more highly. We sold our condo in 8 days and had 3 offers after the first open house in what is being called a terrible housing market. Amanda is a consummate professional with in-depth knowledge of the Chicago real estate market. She incorporates a fantastic marketing campaign that includes every online tool imaginable to get your property visible. Amanda is responsive, hard working, and always has her clients best interest in mind."


"Amanda does a great job working with clients through the home buying process. I found her presentation of several different options that met my criteria helpful to my decision making process. She was proactive in communication (which I think is always a plus) and she has continued to keep in touch even after the purchase. I would definitely recommend Amanda's expertise and service to others."


"Amanda continues each year to demonstrate and prove to her clients and her colleagues why she is regarded as one of the top candidates in her profession. Her knowledge of the realestate markets and her commitment to her clients during each phase of the selling and buying process is commendable. I would recommend Amanda to anyone that needs knowledge, experience and integrity when choosing a real estate professional."


"Amanda has been great to work with and we would certainly recommend her to any of our friends for their realty needs. Amanda really exemplifies more than the above three attributes noted."


"I have been a real estate attorney for almost 25 years. In that time, I have had the opportunity to interact with hundreds of different Realtors, both in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. I have had the pleasure of working with Amanda for the past 14 years. She is by far, one of the most hard working, knowledgeable and involved Realtors I have ever met. Without hesitation, she merits the highest recommendation possible. I have personally recommended her to family, friends and colleagues."


"I selected Amanda as real estate agent due to the numerous great comments I found in the web. I was doubtful about it but, already from the first meeting, she exceeded my expectations. She is very patient, extremely organized and always available for any explanations or assistance. She is very dedicated to her clients: she helped me out through the entire home buying process and even later! You can easily see her great expertise in the field and her passion for the job. It was a real pleasure working with her."


"Amanda is extremely knowledgeable and dedicated to every client. I felt at ease knowing that I could trust her throughout the entire home-buying process. She is personable and fun which was important since one tends to spend a decent amount of time with an agent. I will continue to recommend her to my friends and family."


"As a first time home buyer, Amanda was extremely helpful in educating us procedure of purchasing real estate. She is one of the hardest workers I have met who always displays a high level of professionalism. I highly recommend Amanda and the team she has assembled."


"I have had the pleasure to work with Amanda on several occasions. Amanda is professional, has strong communications skills, and has always looked out for my best interest. She has rented my unit for me on 2 occasions and both times she has found great tenants. I will hire Amanda again and again and will have her list my place when I am ready to sell!"


"I have had the opportunity to work with Amanda on two condo purchases, with great results each time. Amanda really listens when you describe the qualities that you are looking for in a home and is diligent in searching through the listings to find exactly what you are looking for. I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone looking for a real estate agent."


"I have had several occasions to work with and use Amanda's services in the past. All I can say is, WOW! She is an outstanding individual and a knowledgeable professional. She works very hard each and every day to make sure that she delivers. Outstanding attention to details."


"We found Amanda through Yelp. She was highly recommended by every individual. As a first time home buyer, I had no clue all of the "ins and outs" of the real estate world. However, immediately upon meeting Amanda, it became apparent to me why she was so highly recommended. I never doubted her judgment or recommendations for once throughout the whole home buying process. She listened to what we had to say intently and found us a wonderful home that we continue to love. Another point I would like to make, when you are buying a house, there is so much more than just picking the right place. You need inspectors, lawyers, handymen, movers, and so much more. Amanda has several preferred vendors that she can recommend throughout each step of the process. We used every single preferred individual she pointed us to, and they were excellent and reasonably priced. I am glad to recommend Amanda, not only to the general public, but to my closest family and friends."


"Amanda is a great real estate agent and I'd strongly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in Chicago. She is experienced, reliable, and detail oriented."


"Amanda is by far the hardest working Real Estate Agent I know in the Chicagoland area. I recommend her to any of my friends who want to get their house sold! She's extremely honest when it comes to your property and will defend every last sq foot till you have the sold sign on it. She's never one to back down no matter how small your condo/house may be nor will she give up during a down market. I'm proud to say that she became a friend of ours after she sold our little itty bitty condo in Lincoln Park. The only critique I would have is to not work so much (but how is that negative for your agent!) enjoy your horses more and take your old clients to Scooters more!!! My next agenda is to have her move to Dallas so she can find us a house!"


"Amanda is passionately committed to her clients and has an impeccable work ethic! As a first-time homebuyer, Amanda was a calming and reassuring presence in what would otherwise have been a stressful experience for my husband and I. Her attention to detail and superior knowledge of the industry helped all of our transactions to go smoothly. Amanda is a great negotiator, advisor and friend. She is an asset to anyone looking to buy or sell residential property in Chicago! I would absolutely use her again and continue to recommend her to my friends and family."


"As an Architect and Project Manager for a residential builder along Chicagoland's North Shore and suburbs, I've had the oportunity to work with many great real estate agents and I can honestly say that I was most impressed with Amanda. Not only does she have an in-depth knowledge of Chicago's neighborhoods and the surrounding suburbs, but she is diligent in her follow through and relentless in her pursuit of your goals. Simply put, she makes your goals her goals, and she is excellent at achieving her goals."


"Amanda is an exceptionally good realtor who is selling properties even in this bad housing market. I was grateful to have her on my team when I needed to sell my condo right after the market tanked. Through clever marketing, great follow-through, and wise suggestions to me on how to make my place show better, she got it sold. Meanwhile, other units in my building continued to sit unsold. She is a pleasure to work with--professional, friendly, and dedicated to her clients. I give her my highest recommendation."


"Amanda is the BEST realtor I have ever worked with! She makes finding your home like finding her own home. Amanda's number one priority was for me to be completely satisfied with my home. She went above and beyond leaving me amazed at her knowledge, capabilities, and ethics. I would hands down recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor. Amanda McMillan is the BEST in the business!"



"Amanda Rocks!!!!"



"Thanks so much for your help! I really appreciate your responsiveness and the quick turnaround for finding us a tenant!"



"Amanda was professional and was very interested in understanding our wants/ needs. We always felt that she had our best interests at heart when communicatiing and negotiating on our behalf. Would highly recommend Amanda to people looking to buy in the complex Chicago market. Thanks Amanda!"



"I can be a difficult client for a variety of reasons and it is often a difficult to meet, much less to exceed, my expectations. As I have told her many times in the past, her knowledge, professionalism and all-around quality of service never cease to amaze me. Amanda and her team continuously go above and beyond to make sure not only that each client's needs are being met, but also that the client feels comfortable with and knowledgeable about the decicions they need to make. Working with Amanda is an absolute pleasure and something that can prove rare in real estate."



"Already provided."



"We've worked with Amanda a couple times now and are always impressed with her ability to make the process of buying a home a smooth one. She is professional, prompt, and talented and has a great team to handle the litany of things that arise during the purchase/sale of a home. She's the best and we would absolutely recommend her."



"We looked at our house and put an offer in a day later. Amanda helped us every step of the way and gave us GREAT referrals for companies to works with. Our process was a little trickier than we thought it would be but Amanda's team was there as great support to the end."



"I would work with Amanda again in a heartbeat. Her knowledge, experience, and expertise are unmatched. I felt extremely confident from the first meeting that she would more than meet my needs as a realtor. From the professional photographs to the open house to the mass marketing campaign to the negotiations and all throughout the contract process Amanda was on the ball. She was always available (even while on vacation)to talk or answer emails, she always reassured me of the next steps, made sure I was comfortable with every part of the process and I couldn't have been happier to have her on my side. Everyone should have such a great experience in real estate. Much thanks!!"



"It was amazing working with Amanda. The first time we met, we talked about a timeline for selling our condo. When the deal closed, it was within that time frame and for a little more money than we were even expecting. Amanda was the best real estate agent we have ever had the pleasure of working with. She was professional, knowledgeable, and personable. She really studied the market and used that information to put our property in the best light possible. She kept us informed on feedback from every showing as well as statistics generated from our presence online. She walked us through everything we needed to do to stage our property and was with us through every step of the process through closing. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to sell in the city."



"Amanda was fantastic to work with, from the first meeting, through the multiple offers and the final sale. She took the time to provide a step by step explanation of the marketing and listing process. She also helped guide us through a flaky bidder, timely negotiation strategies and the last minute scramble associated with the closing process. Amanda showed herself to be the consummate professional, always available and always kept us in mind. She will be the first name we recommend for anyone looking to have their property represented by only the best."
