"Amy was very attentive to my needs and provided above and beyond service. When I was out of the country she ensured that I was kept abreast of current active and offers on my home. She assisted efficiently and effectively with any issues regarding projects need to enhance the saleability of the property. I am extreme satisfied with the superior service that I received from the Amy Bernstein group. Excellent work Amy!!!"



"Amy was such a great fit for us in the home selling and buying process. From the beginning my husband and I knew what we were looking for in a house. Amy was extremely responsive and professional in all of our interactions. Amy is focused with her goal in mind: to sell our house and to help us find our dream home. She challenged us when we needed it and gave us context to help us feel more supported in our decision making process. Not only that, but she was very pleasant to work with. We had fun touring homes with her. And she was an excellent resource for any and all questions we had for her. And we had many questions! There were times where we worked with her team as well and they were very friendly. We worked with Amy for 10 months total. With her we successfully sold our home and bought our dream home on the same day. And we are very grateful that she was the one guiding us through process."



"Amy is professional, knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. Should there be a glitch in the process she successfully tackles it head on while keeping the client well informed and calm. I highly recommend Amy and her team."


"There aren't words to describe how appreciative I am of Amy and all her hard work she put in during our house search. We were first time home buyers (which is sometimes scary) and had to look at everything that came on the market and Amy was there without question every single time. Even after a rough issue with the first home we fell in love with, Amy stuck by us and she helped us find the home of our dreams. Every question was answered, every worry was calmed and we couldn't have pick a better person for the job. My kids, parents and in-laws love her to death - we didn't just have a realtor we made a life-long family friend."


"We highly recommend Amy Bernstein! She's a great communicator, patient, trustworthy, and helped us find our new home, which we just love. It isn't easy to find a realtor you match with - we had to try a couple before we felt like we had met the perfect match. She knew the Evanston/Skokie area very well, which gave us a sense of confidence. In addition, we always felt that Amy respected our opinion and was never pushing us to put in an offer on a home that didn't feel right. Her ultimate goal is to make sure you are satisfied."



"Amy went above and beyond to help us sell our home. She was always there when we needed her and our home sold quickly....for a good price! We truly appreciated her assistance during the negotiation and closing. Couldn’t have asked for a better realtor."


"Hiring Amy was the best decision I could have made while looking for a place to live. My schedule is very hectic and jam packed, but Amy made everything very easy, accommodating, as well as friendly and hassle free. Hiring Amy was like having one of my good friends help me find a place to live. I would highly recommend Amy for anyone looking for top notch real estate help. I will be using Amy in the future when it comes time to purchase a home."



"I had an excellent experience with Amy as my realtor. She made everything easy from walking me through the parts of the real estate contract right through the closing. I was so worried about both selling my condo and buying another at the same time. Once the contract was signed, a photographer came out to photograph my condo, and the brochure was stunning. The most surprising thing for me was that before the listing was even put on Realtor.com, she'd already arranged several showings. Within one week we had a solid contract. The area in which I wanted to move was extremely limited, but several days after my condo had a contract, we had found the perfect new condo and a contract was signed and accepted. I was nervous throughout the process (because that's who I am), but Amy calmly and confidently walked me through each stage. She was there for me with every one of my questions. Amy also found me the perfect attorney and mortgage broker. This is the first time I was making real estate decisions on my own, but with Amy's help I got through it successfully. I would recommend her to anyone for their realtor."



"Amy is the best! We couldn"



"Amy is the best! We couldn’t have imagined working with anyone else. She was perfect for us...very grounded, and really guided us through the entire process. Plus we found a new friend in Amy. She’s truly terrific!"



"Excellent personalized and professional help. I was really impressed how much she would go out of her way to make the sale so smooth. Amy was very knowledgeable and networked to a great attorney and other professionals."



"Amy is the best agent I have ever worked with. She goes above and beyond and is reliable and responds promptly. Great to work with and highly recommended!"



"Amy was a remarkable guide for our family of four as we searched for our first home. She has a gentle nature that welcomed us to each meeting or viewing. We viewed a wide range of homes in our desired location that included: “move-in ready” properties, those in need of some to all repairs and renovations, to homes that needed to be completely torn down. Amy was always keen to go on an adventure and tried to highlight the possibilities within each home viewing.

Amy was an incredible asset to help us think broadly and flexibly while anchoring to our core priorities throughout the home search. My partner and I agreed on many things. However, we were not aligned on all variables (e.g. kitchen island versus man-cave). Amy’s greatest strength in working with our family was in entertaining our priorities and wishes, while remaining aware of our short and long-term goals related to home ownership. She balanced our personalities well and managed moments where our moods fluctuated (e.g. writing offers, waiting for responses, the inspection) with grace. We ended up purchasing a home in our ideal neighborhood and are extremely grateful for what it has provided for our family in the last two years. Had it not been for Amy’s patience, willingness to serve as a subjective and objective support, and optimism we might be in a different and less desirable scenario.

Since we purchased our home, we have remained in close contact with Amy. We have reached out to Amy periodically and ask for her opinion on market trends. This helps us tremendously as we make choices regarding renovation and other plans we are contemplating for our home. We have referred Amy to close friends and they have had great experiences as well. We know they are in knowledgeable, caring, and capable hands."



"Amy is incredible! Her knowledge, patience and expertise makes her an invaluable partner. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Evanston/Skokie area and look forward to working with her in the future."



"We worked with Amy last fall to buy our home. It was a great experience and we ended up with the perfect home for us. She was very knowledgeable, diligent, and a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. She was very accessible and always happy to take our many calls and questions. She walked us through the entire process and it could not have gone more smoothly. It was amazing how quickly she learned our likes and dislikes and was able to find houses that were great options for us. We would most definitely recommend Amy."



"Amy helped me sell my mother's home in the Skokie/Evanston area. She made the process seamless and stress free. She was always accessible, explained everything thoroughly and was knowledgeable about the market. She also gave us great advice in preparing the home for sale. The house sold quickly. I wouldn't hesitate to use her again."



"My wife and I contracted Amy for a rental apartment that we have. She was very knowledgeable about the variables impacting our property and the needs of potential renters. Her manner was patient and responsive to our needs through each step of the process. We were wholly satisfied with her guiding us through the process. She was truly genuine in her desire to serve our needs. Iwe hope that in our future property needs Amy will be there in the process. Amy is truly an excellent individual that we have come to trust. She is wholeheartedly recommended."



"Amy was a pleasure to work with. Very professional and organized. Explained the steps clearly, and was a huge help throughout the entire process. She returned calls promptly and always kept us in the loop as to what was happening. Was also very knowledgeable on the current real estate market in the area. Would highly recommend. You will be in good hands with Amy as your realtor."



"Excellent personalized and professional help. I was really impressed how much she would go out of her way to make the sale so smooth. Amy was very knowledgeable and networked to a great attorney and other professionals."



"Not only were we trying to sell a home, we had to do this from a different state – and there was no better real-estate professional that we could have chosen to entrust both our home and possessions to than Amy Bernstein.

We were very pleased with Amy’s real-estate expertise. She was quite professional, and yet personable at the same time. She also knew the housing market very well, in addition to being knowledgeable to “our” specific community surroundings.

In addition to being an amazing Broker, in our absence, Amy also took care of the service contractor(s) that came to the house leading to the closing (i.e. meter reader, electrician, etc.). Additionally, there was an interested buyer who ran into the mailbox, which she also immediately had fixed!

My wife and I was also impressed with the advertisement of our home that included professional pictures in print, E-mail and the real-estate company website.

Overall, because of Amy’s passion for both finding and selling homes, in addition to making her clients’ feel at ease – what could have been a very stressful experience for us turned out to be an unexpected satisfying journey."



"Amy is the first person I thi k of when It comes to house hunti g or relicating. I have trusted her skill and expertise in the selling and pur hasing of my previous 3 homes. No surprise and always keeping my beeds at the top of her list of priorities in the finalizing of each business venture we shared. I recommend Amy Bernstein to all of my friends and associates seeking Real Estate assistance. Glenda Dugar"



"Amy Bernstein is the consummate professional. We are truly fortunate to have had her help navigating the intricacies of the real estate process. Huge thanks are in order to the whole @Properties team, they are the true leaders."



"We could not be happier with our experience with Amy. She was personal yet professional and incredibly knowledgeable about the whole process. She made buying our first home fun and seamless. She's the best of the best and I can't recommend her enough."



"Amy and her partner Preston are truly full service Realtors. In selling my condo there were several contractors and utility companies that had to come in and do work and instead of having to take a day off or meet the utility company at 7 in the morning they would take the time out of their days to meet them wait while the work was done and then lock up."



"Amy us amazing! She was always there to help, answer questions, show a house and offer suggestions. She is a 10 out of 10.
I would highly recommend using Amy if you are looking for a new home. She will be by your side the entire process."



"Amy was very collaborative and proactive with regards to marketing the property I sold. She was sensitive to my concerns, and offered both options and guidance - exactly what I needed.

I had previously listed this property with another company and agent, and never even got an offer. With Amy's help and expertise, I received multiple offers on the same property. Enough said!"



"I will say it again: Amy was terrific!!! She was as helpful as any agent could possibly be. Her assistance, follow-up, compassion, and just her general attitude towards the process and us, her clients, was legendary. We were mostly amazed with her staying power, because I believe we gave her plenty of reasons to quit on us, but she stuck it out and maintained a pleasant, legitimate smile at every encounter (smile). I wish we could've done more than simply thank her for her time, because she went far beyond anyone's expectations for service. We saw some homes four times--yes, four times! And we looked at over 45 homes easily. Whatever this company does, do everything in your power to maintain this level of professionalism of your staff. In doing so, you would be guaranteeing the best real estate business America has to offer.

Thank you very much for allowing us to work with Amy Bernstein. She treated us like family long after the sale was completed. (Nearly five years after the closing date, she is still a person we can call with questions...or just to wish well.)"



"Amy Bernstein is a consummate professional from first contact to closing! She is right on the pulse of the Real Estate market in the Chicagoland area. In my experience, her knowledge of accurate property values, relative comps for the areas, community strengths and communication skills are second to none. Amy took time to make sure everything was done and done well, from the marketing to the walk through. She was accessible, accurate and delivered on each promise made, on time. I highly recommend Amy Bernstein for Chicago Real Estate."



"After working with another agent for over a month, we switched to Amy. She completely understood our needs, as we had some very specific prerequisites in finding an apartment due to some health issues. Within a week, Amy found the perfect apartment in Edgewater (Uptown). It was the first apartment she showed us. She was patient and organized. Her communication was excellent. Amy immediately responded to all our questions with knowledge and understanding. She thoroughly reviewed the details of the property and the neighborhood (both pros and cons) with us, making our decision easier. Amy's attention was consistently focused throughout the entire process. She went above and beyond our expectations as a realtor."



"Amy is the best agent I have ever worked with. She goes above and beyond and is reliable and responds promptly. Great to work with and highly recommended!"



"Amy is a fantastic agent. She was our partner and coach throughout the selling of our condo and the purchase of our new home. She was responsive and considerate, and she offered us great ideas throughout the process. I would highly recommend Amy to my friends."
