"Awesome experience selling a house with Andy! He went above & beyond our expectations. Andy's communication was awesome, as was his knowledge of the area and selling conditions. He sold us the day that we met him with the details that he brought to the meeting, showing us that he had done his research and cared about acquiring our business. He's a great realtor and a great person. I would highly recommend Andy for buying or selling your home."



"As an out of towner, I relied on Andy to take care of ALL the details for selling my condo. He worked hard to get the property sold, kept in close contact with me, gave advice when I needed it. I'd definately go to Andy for any Chicago real estate need."



"Andy was accommodating in every way--when I wanted to see a property, he made himself available, frequently on very short notice. He was kind, patient and offered a seasoned point of view that helped me to purchase the right condo for me."



"Andy is an excellent broker. He was a good advocate for us and spent time to learn what we were really looking for in our home. He know"



"Andy was always a pleasure to work with. He was respectful of my 'must haves'. He worked with me not only to contract, he talked me down logically when my emotions took over. He stayed with me all the way! Will recommend Andy to anyone I know that has a need to work with a real estate agent."



"I would recommend Andy to anyone looking for a real estate agent in Chicago. He is professional, knowledgable and unbelievably patient. I had been working with Andy for nearly 3 years while I was very indecisive about what I wanted. Yet, he never made me feel bad about it. He would send me listings and take me to showings. Each time I saw him in person I liked him even more. Finally, I came across the right property but at what seemed to be the wrong time. Nevertheless, Andy provided me with wonderful guidance and insight. After much back and forth (mostly because of me) he ultimately made the deal come through and I couldn't be happier."



"Andy was a calming and positive influence during the entire process. I would highly recommend him. He's knowledgable about what to ask for and he was very patient and responsive with all my concerns. He certainly knows the Chicago market and is very enthusiastic. I always felt like a top priority and would recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor."



"Working with Andy was a great experience as we transitioned from the suburbs to downtown. His knowledge, not only of where properties are located, but also of the culture of each neighborhood was immensely helpful as we went through our search. His demeanor is also a plus as he quietly points out things to consider while giving us time to make our own opinion. Andy was available through the whole process and answered our questions and concerns honestly and thoroughly.
It was obvious that Andy's goal was to help us find a place that is truly home."



"Andy helped us with the sale of our home and purchase of a new property over a six month period. I deal with many professionals in many lines of work, and I think few would beat Andy in terms of responsiveness and being pro-active. He's an excellent advisor but not in the business of making a sale at any cost; I consistently felt that he was committed to making sure we made good decisions over the long-term. He has deep knowledge of the city and the ups and downs in the housing market, sets expectations, follows through, and always picks up the phone or responds to an email. I strongly recommend Andy Gersten to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Chicago area."



"Andy saved my wife and I from the morass which confronts most first- or second time home buyers -- too many potential properties to consider, spotty service from the legion of agents hoping to get one's business, a process which can get so frustrating that instead of excitedly pursuing a dream home, being a tenant suddenly doesn't seem so bad. For us, Andy took charge of the search, saved us time and energy by winnowing down the market to our specific needs, was up on everything one asks about owning a building in Chicago, and nimbly navigated the final negotiation into a deal we were very happy with. I can recommend Andy Gersten without reservation."



"Andy is the best real estate professional with whom we have ever worked. He is low pressure, an advisor working to make us happy versus someone looking to close a deal. We have worked with him twice as buyers and once as a seller and have been impressed each time."



"i am a real estate attorney who has had the pleasure of working with Andy many times over the years. He is a responsive, diligent, knowledgeable and professional broker who is very concerned with, and protective, of his clients interests. Unlike many brokers, he actively follows up and stays involved after the contract is signed, until, and even after closing. i highly recommend him.

"As a first-time homebuyer, Andy can attest to my initial apprehension in the home buying process. With all the horror stories I've heard, I was expecting something awful to happen at some point. It never did. I still can't believe how uncomplicated the process was! Andy was very objective in his thoughts on certain properties and how he believed it related to my personality and lifestyle. He was able to do this because he spent the time getting to know his client. I counted on his honest opinions. I've already told friends about him, and I highly recommend working with Andy!"
