"Ryan, Heather, Emily and the whole team were great! They were right by my side whenever I needed them and gave me a lot of great advice and guidance. The team knows the Chicago market very well and was able to find me a perfect spot for my needs. They also made the closing process very smooth and seamless. I would happily work with them again in the future!"


"I've dealt with a half a dozen or so agents in my life, and Ryan and his team far exceed the efforts and professionalism of everyone else I've encountered. He and his team have an immaculate attention for detail, and they stay in constant communication throughout the entire process. This means that you are always well-informed, and always feel confident and assured that everything is being expertly handled. Ryan and his team are warm and friendly, diligent and hard-working, and they go to great lengths to make sure you get the most for your transaction. I am well beyond satisfied. I cannot recommend Ryan enough."


"Ryan has helped me through 2 purchases in the last few years. I would recommend him to anyone. He is a great agent to have on your team when making a real estate transaction. Thanks!"


"Ryan and his team are absolutely the best team out there in the Chicago market. Ryan's experience and expertise lend to a wonderful and simple transaction. Additionally, his broker team is top notch especially Heather Loy who worked her heart out to find us the perfect place to call home. Definitely recommend him for any who is selling their home or looking to buy! He treats you like you own a million dollar property which I completely appreciated."


"Heather is amazing! I would recommend her as an agent to anyone!!"


"I'm not the easiest guy to work for, my standards are very high. This is even more true when it involves the high stakes of real estate. Ryan Gossett exceeded my expectations throughout the entire process of selling my home. He was candid when it came to managing my expectations as far as the true value of the property and the work required to achieve it's full potential. Initially, I pushed back but he stood his ground. Ultimately, when it was all said and done, the market proved him right and the time I spent bickering with him was time wasted. Furthermore, during negotiations with prospective buyers, I was impressed with how much he fought on my behalf to get the best possible deal. I felt good about leaving the transaction knowing I didn't leave any money on the table. I would recommend Ryan and his team to anyone who is ready to work with a dedicated professional. (Please do not use my full name/E-mail)."


"Ryan is great to work with. We bought our first home with him and when we were looking to sell it, we knew we would work with Ryan again. Ryan is very knowledgeable and honest with you. He understood any concerns we had was always available to answer any questions. Our buyer had some issues and at one point it became very concerning for us, but Ryan was always very reassuring and worked hard to close the sale."


"Team stayed in constant contact and led us through the sale process flawlessly"


"Ryan was great to work with! Very helpful and knowledgeable!! I highly recommend him to anyone."


"Ryan was a fantastic agent for both our sale and purchase. being the first time we sold, he walked us through all the steps and helped us understand the process. He was also able to give us great advice on pricing for both the sale and purchase. He's smart, knowledgeable, and a good negotiator. I will recommend him to everyone I know."


"Ryan and the entire Pinnacle Team with @properties was amazing. I am very appreciative for the team's work in helping me find and close on my new condo! I also appreciate the referrals for financing, legal, and a contractor. Thanks Ryan and team!"


"Working with Ryan and his team is always great. I have worked with them on two purchases so far, one as a personal home and one as an investment property. He and his team are knowledgeable, honest, and really care that you purchase the right property for your needs. They never sugar coat it to get a sale. I also work with their homeowners as a designer, and The Pinnacle Team continues to check in long after the sale is over to see how the renovations are going and to make sure that everyone is happy. They are the best!"


"Ryan was a great help in assisting me in purchasing my first home. I had very little knowledge when starting the entire process, but Ryan was able to break things down, explain what was needed, and made everything very easy to understand and act on. He was consistently available to talk when needed, and if he wasn't available someone from his team was able to talk to me. Overall, I had a great experience working with Ryan and will definitely be in contact with him for any future purchases."


"I couldn't have asked for a better realtor than Ryan. All of the advice he gave us proved to be correct. It was like he could predict the future—he seemed to know exactly how our house-hunting process would go. As a result, there were very few surprises. The only thing Ryan got wrong was his prediction that our closing date would slip. He underestimated my passion for completing paperwork in a timely fashion. We'll be recommending Ryan to any of our friends who are looking for a new home."


"Working with Ryan and his team again has been great. We are very happy."



"Ryan was recommended to me not only by one friend, but by two! A mutual friend passed his information along to me in the beginning stages of my condo hunt. Before meeting Ryan I posted a message on Facebook looking for realtor recommendations. A different childhood friend sent me the exact same recommendation! I knew that I couldn’t go wrong working with Ryan since he was repeatedly recommended. Ryan immediately began working with me to find my dream condo. Ryan and Emily were always quick to answer any questions and were incredibly helpful in explaining the home buying process since I was a first time home buyer. Ryan was a complete joy to work with, an outstanding realtor, and an overall down to earth great guy and new friend!"


"Ryan was great to work with--efficient and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend him and his team."


"My experience with Ryan Gossett and his team was great. From start to finish they were, and have been on top of everything.
I especially appreciate the attention to detail and the clear line of communication.
Thanks again Ryan"



"Ryan and Emily Gossett were amazing agents. They are a cute, fun, positive and energetic couple that made my first time home buying experience a real treat. I would recommend them to any first or seasoned home buyer."


"Working with Ryan and Emily was a pleasure. Ryan's advice was perfect to prepare my townhome for sale. While initially skeptical about staging, I became a convert when I saw the final result. Ryan's recommendations were spot on and I was able to sell my condo quickly. I highly recommend Ryan and his entire team for their professional expertise, great attitudes and successful results."


"Ryan helped me buy my first condo in the city! He was patient with me through the whole search process. Ryan was very knowledge and offered his expertise in all areas. He helped me out every step of the way, from the search, the loan, and the closing, recommending great professionals to help me. Ryan made me super comfortable as a first time home buyer and made it very easy! I cannot express enough gratitude to Ryan and his team!"



"Ryan and his team provided a level of expertise and service that made us feel informed, involved and confident throughout our home sale. The team consistently gave us updates regarding the market and our home. They also responded promptly to any/all questions we had."


"Ryan Gossett and his better half, Emily Gossett, are a wonderful team. They have helped me with many real estate transactions over the years and have performed flawlessly in every venture. They are ever professional, dependable, thoughtful and timely. Ryan knows the marketplace better than anyone and Emily never drops a ball on important follow-up issues and details. Their individual strengths dovetail and mesh well together. I am most pleased with how they have assisted me every step of every transaction.
Brian"


"Ryan did an absolutely stellar job selling my home. Trust can go a long way in reaching an agreement, and he was dedicated to taking an honest approach towards arriving at a transaction that exceeded my expectations. I was impressed from the very beginning and could not be happier with the outcome. He asked qualifying questions, understood exactly what I wanted to do, and led a seamless process. I felt that I was always in good hands which gave me peace of mind. I have already worked with Ryan on another transaction and also recommended him to a friend. Ryan, his wife Emily, and his team have my utmost respect and confidence. I look forward to working with them again in the future."



"Ryan and Emily are extremely knowledgeable about Chicago real estate, and they provided me with much-needed guidance throughout the entire sales process, always acting in my best interest. They are consummate professionals, and I happily refer my friends to them who are considering buying or selling. I am extremely happy with my experience with Ryan and Emily!"


"He went above and beyond the normal expectations of a realtor and was always willing and happy to help. He has great communication and a positive attitude. Thank you!"


"Working with Ryan to purchase a condo was such a great experience. Ryan paid detailed attention to each property that we looked at, noticing some things that I would have otherwise missed. He provided great insight to issues that would impact resale, as well as quirks that one would maybe grow tired of after living in a place for awhile. On top of all of his great knowledge on the marketplace, Ryan is just fun to work with. He's professional, thoughtful, definitely thinks about the big picture. It's obvious that he wants to get his clients into the right house - not just any house - because doing that will keep him in their good graces and a shoe-in for future real estate transactions. Being a first time homebuyer, Ryan took care to explain the process to me and make everything comfortable. He even set me up with a contractor to do some work before I move in! I'm in love with my new place, but I know I won't be there forever, and I will definitely get in touch with Ryan when it's time to move."



"Ryan and Emily are most professional. They are most knowledgeable, highly responsive and very attentive."


"Ryan was great from start to finish especially with me being a first time buyer. I would recommend him to anyone searching."


"Ryan and his team were a pleasure to work with. They were very supportive of our patient/deliberate search for a new home. Ryan is extremely knowledgeable and thoughtful. He also has an eye for design, layout and value that added a lot to our discussions. The team did a nice job of getting us smoothly through the contract negotiation and closing process. We would recommend them without hesitation."



"Emily is very knowledgable, energetic, and professional, and a pleasure to work with! I would recommend her to anyone."


"I have been working with Ryan Gossett for over two years now and think he is outstanding. He has helped me purchase ten properties over that time. He has also rented each one of them for me in no time at all. Ryan is proactive, courteous, ever responsive and most dependable. He is also smart and has a friendly service oriented manner about himself. I will continue to work with Ryan as long as he will put up with me."


"Ryan Gossett and his team (including Emily Gossett) are exceptional real estate brokers. We had retained another Chicago real estate broker to whom we had been referred and who is highly regarded in the field. However, she and her organization were not able to get any results for us during a 6 month period .In comparison to @properties, they lacked the skill and organization and did not inspire confidence. We felt immediately in good hands with Ryan. Ryan helped us to appropriately price our Unit and within 6 weeks we had a contract and we closed within 2 1/2 months of retaining him. In addition since we had already moved from Chicago, Ryan provided us invaluable assistance in coordinating work that had to be completed by plumbers and other contractors in our absence. He also was diligent in checking our home during the coldest winter days. Further, my attorney also thought highly of Ryan Gossett and his efforts to bring our Unit to closing. Finally, our neighbors in our Condominium Association also liked him very much and thought he represented our building very well. We highly recommend Ryan Gossett to anyone looking to sell or buy a home in Chicago."



"Ryan and Emily were very professional. They were also very truthful as to the state of the market and the choices currently available to me. I'm happy with the choice I made."


"Ryan and his team truly went the extra mile to ensure our first home buying experience was a FUN experience! We had a 30-day time frame, and while we had some initial doubts that buying a house in such a short time period could be completed, Ryan and his team OVER DELIVERED! Ryan was timely, informative, and made the entire experience enjoyable."


"The Gossett team was continually impressive in all measures of this process."



"Ryan and Emily Gossett are the best team a seller could ask to have in this tough real estate market. I don't just say that because they are my friends but because of their high level of professionalism, experience, knowledge and overall attention to detail. After already experiencing a stressful move overseas the last thing I wanted to worry about was the sale of my property in Chicago. Luckily, Ryan and Emily made the process easy for me and responded quickly to all of my varied questions and requests. Going through the short sale process was a daunting task however their experience and knowledge surpassed any previous inquiries I had made into this process. They have the right team working with them to get things done!! Thanks to both of them I am now able to focus completely on my new life in a new country."


"Ryan and his team were great! I originally decided to put my condo on the market about 4 years ago and got all the way to the point where we had an offer on it. I got some cold feet and decided it wasn't the right time for me to sell and decided to rent my condo. While I'm sure Ryan was displeased with my decision, at no point did he express that to me and remained perfectly patient and understanding the whole time. Fast-forward to the present when I was truly ready to sell my place, Ryan found a buyer in less than a month. Since I was selling from out of state I relied on him and his team to handle all the details of the sale and they did so flawlessly. At no point was I stressed or worried that things were not getting taken care of. I would highly recommend using Ryan and his team if you're thinking of buying or selling, 5 stars!"


"Ryan and Emily would a pleasure to work with! They were very patient, knowledgeable, and sincere. They would always provide their honest opinion of the homes we looked at and I never felt pressured to buy anything I wasn't completely comfortable with. They also went out of their way to find ansers to any little question I had."



"Ryan Gossett is unquestionably the best real estate agent I have ever worked with in my 35 years of buying properties in several different cities. He is incredibly responsive, professional and knowledgeable. He and partner, Emily Gossett, compliment one another's skills sets extremely well and they are both always on top of things. I would unconditionally recommend Ryan and Emily to anyone looking to buy or sell property. I will certainly continue to utilize their expertise and assistance. (This client has given @properties permission to publish the testimonial & survey results on the Internet.)"


"The Pinnacle Team did a fabulous job selling my Chicago 106 year old home. They helped determine the offering price; ultimately it sold in three weeks for 98% of the asking price; that is savvy market knowledge. They also recommended a staging company who also did a fabulous job taking care of all of the details. Their marketing effort was equally superior generating many showings while the listing was still fresh. I moved to CA as the listing was published, confident that Ryan's team would handle all the details necessary to reach a quick, successful close. There were a dozen items that turned up on the home inspection report. The Pinnacle Team scheduled vendors to make proposals, mitigate the problems, and get the necessary work done on time. I'm very pleased to give The Pinnacle Team my highest recommendation. They will get it done right and you will be informed at every step."


"Emily and Ryan Gossett are professional, very smart, highly responsive and most pro-active. We have used them on several real estate transactions and will continue to do so with the utmost confidence in the future."


"When I had my first interaction with Ryan, he was on the other side of table, representing a seller to a townhome that I purchased. Being unhappy with my broker at the time, I found Ryan's energy to be matched in intensity to his communication and collaborative style. There was no question in my mind that he would be the one to sell my condo at the price I wanted. Ryan is honest and forthcoming and I would not hesitate to use him in the future. My only regret is that I don't buy and sell houses frequently because it is a pleasure to work with such a dedicated team."


"Ryan was absolutely amazing to work with! I recommend him to anyone purchasing a home and will definitely work with him in the future. He made the process of purchasing my first property so easy to understand, and was extremely helpful."


"I would highly recommend Ryan Gossett as a real estate agent. He and his team were incredibly patient during a long home search and were quick to action when we found something that we liked. I would work with Ryan and his team again in a heartbeat."



"Ryan and Emily Gossett are not only consumate professionals with tons of knowledge about how to select the right property for your family, but they are also very kind and pleasant to work with! With so many wonderful and not-so-great properties on the Chicago market, they make it exciting to look for a new home and not a scary venture... they help tailor properties to view that really meet your needs, are built well, and are in your price-point! I would recommend them to absolutely anyone (in fact, I already have!) and their team has my full confidence! We can't thank them enough for helping us find our dream home!"


"Ryan and his team go above and beyond. I knew zero about the home buying experience going into this. I felt very comfortable throughout the process and gained a lot of knowledge. From the day we met to our closing date, everything went extremely smooth and I am very happy."


"Ryan and his team were absolutely amazing! I can only provide the highest recommendation for the services that were provided. Will definitely be referring him to anyone that needs an amazing real estate agent!"


"Ryan, Emily and Lindsey delivered on all of our expectations. Not only were we able to sell in less than 3 weeks, but the final sales price exceeded our expectations."


"Ryan and his team were a great help to us through the process of buying our first home. They were quick to respond to all questions. It was a pleasure working with them, and I will absolutely be recommending them to friends and family."


"Ryan gave us great advice on things like price and connected us with great people, including the lawyer who worked with our closing. Ryan's team was great at connecting by email and helped us to complete as much paperwork as we could electronically, which was super helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Ryan, Emily and Lindsay again."


"Ryan and Emily were awesome. We did not live in the area where our property was located. They took care of everything for us and keep us in the loop on what was going on. When we meet Ryan, he told us exactly what we needed to do to sell the property. He sold it after one day on the market and one Open House. What much could you ask for. Even after the closing, Ryan is still willing to help with some last items that will happen after a month of the closing. I would recommend Ryan and Emily Gossett for your realtor."



"From the time we first met Ryan when we were looking for our first home in the Chicago area, we found him to be a broker who does his "home work." He is not only knowledgeable about the housing market in general, but has a good sense of what is happening in a given neighborhood. Because we have been very satisfied with his real estate savvy and high degree of professionalism, our family has used Ryan on numerous occasions to list and/or purchase our homes and condos in and around Chicago."



"Ryan went to bat for us when it looked like our deal had completely fallen through. With his help, we were able to reach an agreement with our building's seller - something that would not have been likely otherwise."


"Ryan Gossett is unquestionably the best real estate agent I have ever worked with in my 35 years of buying properties in several different cities. He is incredibly responsive, professional and knowledgeable. He and partner, Emily Gossett, compliment one another's skills sets extremely well and they are both always on top of things. I would unconditionally recommend Ryan and Emily to anyone looking to buy or sell property. I will certainly continue to utilize their expertise and assistance. (This client has given @properties permission to publish the testimonial & survey results on the Internet.)"


"From the very start of our home search, Ryan was extremely helpful, straight to the point about everything, and very easy to work with. As first time home buyers, we had tons of questions and concerns. But Ryan and Emily were both very dedicated to explaining everything and making sure we knew exactly what we were getting into. We eventually found a great property, that happened to be a short sale. The team worked hard and the process went along smoothly, all the way to closing!"


"Ryan did a great job and was very patient. He stepped in on my behalf when he didn't have to and also worked hard to get me the best deal possible given the market conditions. He was never pushy or tried to get me to see things differently in order to just get the sale completed. I really couldn't imagine using anyone else in the future. He gained my trust very quickly and that's not an easy thing to do. If ever he needs a testimonial or referral just let me know!"


"Ryan was recommended to me not only by one friend, but by two! A mutual friend passed his information along to me in the beginning stages of my condo hunt. Before meeting Ryan I posted a message on Facebook looking for realtor recommendations. A different childhood friend sent me the exact same recommendation! I knew that I couldn’t go wrong working with Ryan since he was repeatedly recommended. Ryan immediately began working with me to find my dream condo. Ryan and Emily were always quick to answer any questions and were incredibly helpful in explaining the home buying process since I was a first time home buyer. Ryan was a complete joy to work with, an outstanding realtor, and an overall down to earth great guy and new friend!"


"Ryan was very responsive to my needs and worked hard to find a variety of great options during my search for a new home. He has a great understanding of the market and helped me to find a place that I will truly be satisfied with, not just a place I would buy quickly. I would recommend Ryan without hesitation!"


"Ryan was great. I am a results-oriented person, and Ryan definitely delivered. He sold my condo in just two months after it sat on the market for over a year. Then he helped me find and close on a new home shortly thereafter. My wife and I love the new place, which we never would have found without Ryan's help (he introduced us to a new neighborhood that we hadn't even been considering before). He's knowledgeable, professional, and he gets the job done."


"Ryan and his team provided a level of expertise and service that made us feel informed, involved and confident throughout our home sale. The team consistently gave us updates regarding the market and our home. They also responded promptly to any/all questions we had."


"Ryan and Emily Gossett were amazing agents. They are a cute, fun, positive and energetic couple that made my first time home buying experience a real treat. I would recommend them to any first or seasoned home buyer."


""We listed our condo the year before with no luck, so since we felt we didn't get the proper attention from our current agent we decided to find a new one when we decided to put our place back on the market. Ryan did a great job explaining to us what to expect as sellers in the current market and gave us a fair assessment of what he thought our place should be listed at. After that, we just listened to his advice and followed what he said closely as we figured he was the expert and we wanted to believe what he said would work. We are pleased to say after several months in a condo saturated market, we were able to sell our place so we could move onto the next step in our lives. We couldn't have done it without Ryan and Sarah at @properties.""


""Ryan was amazing and I would work with him again in a flash. I have already recommended him to several friends who are thinking about buying a home. I was a first-time buyer and Ryan was consistently patient, knowledgeable, high-spirited, and always supportive and available. He is savvy about Lincoln Park, the current (and volatile) market, is a great negotiator, and was always honest with me. I felt confident and calm having Ryan represent me and am thrilled to have worked with such a great agent during my first real estate experience.""


""Ryan Gossett is an excellent agent with a great work ethic, a real "can-do" attitude and a belief in looking out for his clients. We couldn't ask for anything more. We are very happy with our new condo and the price was great due to Ryan's great negotiating.""


""The Pinnacle Team is the best in the business. As a first time seller, knowing that we are currently in the midst of the absolute worst real estate market in history, let's just say I was a bit nervous. Sarah Lawrence and Ryan Gossett were able to calm those nerves. It was painless. They guided me through the process with ease. I had no idea what I needed to do to prep my condo for sale, but they were right there laying it all out for me. Once it was listed, I had 30 showings (there were never late for a showing) and always gave me feedback afterward. Even in this market, they were able to sell my place in 2 months... I was amazed. I actually received two offers on the same day! I can't say enough good things about the team. Sarah and Ryan are the most trustworthy agents around. That's exactly what I was looking for... agents I could trust. They've become even closer friends thanks to this process. I will recommend Sarah and Ryan to every person I come across looking to buy or sell real estate. @properties is lucky to have such great folks working for them." -Justin T., Lakeview "Ryans energy and passion to educate me about the Chicago real estate market during the property search and buying process was a true delight. He took a personal interest in covering properties of many different neighborhoods, from vintage to rehab to new construction, so that I could consider the value in each and identify what attributes were most important to me in selecting a fabulous first condo. I didnt have an attorney or inspector in mind early on, so Ryan shared some background on a list of contacts that he had, to ensure I chose professionals that matched my needs in the home-buying process. Ryan is an invaluable resource to everyone he works with because he is enthusiastically committed to serving the needs of his clients". - Kelly C., Lincoln Square "Ryan was tireless in his efforts to provide me with options that met the criteria that I was looking for in a home, both in terms of location and home characteristics. He also opened my eyes to new locations that I would not have thought of otherwise. In the end, I decided to purchase a home that I otherwise would not have seen without Ryan's input, creativity and hard work. I highly recommend Ryan to anyone who is looking to purchase or sell their home or condo." - Steve W., Lincoln Square "The level of attention I received from Ryan was second-to-none. As a first-time home buyer, he made sure that I was comfortable through-out the entire process, and that I was well-informed on the next steps. He went above and beyond to make sure that my needs were met, and that I was getting the best deal possible. I have already recommended him to my friends, and feel very comfortable doing so in the future.""

""I started working with Ryan a little over a year ago when I was thinking of upgrading to a larger condo in the downtown Chicago area. Ryan was great to work with for a variety of reasons. First, and most important to me was that he did not use a "high pressure" sales approach with me which made me very happy and much more trusting in his advice etc. Also, he did a TON of homework and research on the neighborhood I was selling in and the area that I wanted to buy in. He is very personable, hard working, and always looking out for your best interests. I would certainly recommend Ryan to anyone I knew who was looking to do something in the Chicago real estate market.""


"Ryan and Emily are extremely knowledgeable about Chicago real estate, and they provided me with much-needed guidance throughout the entire sales process, always acting in my best interest. They are consummate professionals, and I happily refer my friends to them who are considering buying or selling. I am extremely happy with my experience with Ryan and Emily!"


""After talking with many different agents, I chose Ryan Gossett as my real estate agent and couldn't be any happier with my decision. After I told him what type of place I was looking for in a specific price range, I was extremely pleased to see that he was only interested in showing me condos that best fit my criteria. Just as I have been already, I would recommend Ryan to anyone who is interested in finding a real estate agent who cares about the buyer's / seller's best interest and goes way above and beyond, like no other agent I have seen yet.""


""We're so glad we decided to work with Ryan to find our first home! In addition to being a lot of fun to hang out with, Ryan is extremely knowledgeable. From the many and varied neighborhoods of Chicago to the intricacies of the home-buying process to the effects of changing market conditions, Ryan knows it all. He also has an impressive array of industry contacts. We used his recommendations for a mortgage broker, lawyer, and home inspector, all of whom were very professional and did great work. Ryan was always available and was happy to look at condos with us on many occasions. We never felt any pressure from Ryan, and he always put our interests first. He was always much more interested in finding us the perfect home than in completing a sale. We will whole-heartedly recommend Ryan to anyone looking for an agent, and we will definitely work with him in the future.""


""Ryan and Sarah did an outstanding job handling the marketing and eventual sale of our property. In this particularly difficult market we always felt that they were taking advantage of every opportunity to generate potential sales. In addition, they were both invaluable in assisting us with the property as we are often out of town. We would recommend this team to anyone looking to sell or buy a property based on their approach, knowledge, dedication and attitude. We cannot stress enough how much we appreciate the way Ryan and Sarah stuck with us during the sale process. It is a stressful event in the best of times and these are not the best of times. Their assistance and guidance meant a world of difference." Chip and Colleen Sandifer"


""Ryan was very attentive and walked me through the entire process. My move was difficult because I was selling a property in California and moving to Chicago. When my property in California sold in 6 days I was motivated to find a place in Chicago quickly. Overall it was great to work with Ryan because of his knowledge about structures, the market and areas where re-sale would be better. Very happy with the outcome and service.""


"David L.Ryan was incredibly helpful and flexible through our process. He took time to understand what we were looking for, communicated new opportunities in a timely manner and provided invaluable guidance throughout. We will highly recommend him in the future."


"Ryan was a good communicator with me which I found lacking from other agents. He was able to generate foot traffic quickly for my house and priced the house reasonable to sell the house quickly. He also provided candid analysis of my selling situation which helped sell the house quicker. I would recommend home to others considering selling their house in Chicago."


"As a first time home buyer, I had no idea what to do or what to expect. Ryan was a knowledgeable and reassuring presence during the condo search. He guided me through the process, helped me refine what I was looking for, and once we found The Place and began moving towards closing, he took care of the little details that would otherwise have been seriously stressful. In general, Ryan made the whole process so much easier, and even kind of fun!"


"Ryan was extremely diligent in looking after our interests. He understood what we wanted and was able to eliminate properties that he knew we would not be interested in. He followed through to provide as much information on the processes as possible and was extremely proactive in getting information if he did not have an answer for us. We would 100% refer him to any of our friends and look forward to a new friendship with him."


"Ryan was excellent to work with throughout the entire process. He took the time to get to know what we were really looking for and worked hard to show us as many properties as we wanted to see. He is very knowledgeable about the market and really helped guide us. He was without a doubt the most thorough and professional person we dealt with from start to finish. He is highly recommended."


"Emily is very knowledgable, energetic, and professional, and a pleasure to work with! I would recommend her to anyone."


"Ryan and Emily were very professional. They were also very truthful as to the state of the market and the choices currently available to me. I'm happy with the choice I made."


"Ryan and Emily Gossett are the best team a seller could ask to have in this tough real estate market. I don't just say that because they are my friends but because of their high level of professionalism, experience, knowledge and overall attention to detail. After already experiencing a stressful move overseas the last thing I wanted to worry about was the sale of my property in Chicago. Luckily, Ryan and Emily made the process easy for me and responded quickly to all of my varied questions and requests. Going through the short sale process was a daunting task however their experience and knowledge surpassed any previous inquiries I had made into this process. They have the right team working with them to get things done!! Thanks to both of them I am now able to focus completely on my new life in a new country."


"Ryan Gossett was extremely professional and helpful....even after the closing he kept helping and facilitating the processes.....i really appreciate his time and effort."


"Ryan was fantastic. He helped us buy our home 3 years ago, even saving the deal when it looked like it might not go through. Now, when we needed to sell our home quickly due to an unexpected out of state move, he helped us choose the right listing price, and gave great advice on staging. We had offers within four days of being on the market, and were under contract within a week (in a not so great market!)rnIt was an emotional sale for us, and Ryan helped keep me calm and sane throughout the process, and he and his team were extremely professional and responsive. I wouldn't hesitate recommending Ryan, and have done so in the past. He is personable, trustworthy, and very good at what he does! (This client has given @properties permission to publish the testimonial & survey results on the Internet.)"



"Ryan was great. I was a first time buyer, and he took time to explain the process step-by-step so there were no surprises. I received constant communication, and Ryan kept me up to date via e-mails and phone calls because it worked best for me. The communication insured that everything moved very quickly and efficiently as soon as I found the right place. I can't recommend Ryan enough. This had the potential to be one of the most stressful events of my life, but Ryan and his team did such a good job of explaining the process and expectations that it took away a lot of the extra stress. I really felt like Ryan was on my side, and that's what I wanted the most out of my realtor."



"I feel Ryan and Emily did an excellent job of keeping me informed as to the progress of listing through the sale and closing. He was very present from beginning to completion and was generally always available to have frank discussions and to answer my many questions."


"Ryan Gossett is unquestionably the best real estate agent I have ever worked with in my 35 years of buying properties in several different cities. He is incredibly responsive, professional and knowledgeable. He and partner, Emily Gossett, compliment one another's skills sets extremely well and they are both always on top of things. I would unconditionally recommend Ryan and Emily to anyone looking to buy or sell property. I will certainly continue to utilize their expertise and assistance.

"Ryan Gossett was extremely professional and helpful....even after the closing he kept helping and facilitating the processes.....i really appreciate his time and effort."


"Ryan was excellent to work with throughout the entire process. He took the time to get to know what we were really looking for and worked hard to show us as many properties as we wanted to see. He is very knowledgeable about the market and really helped guide us. He was without a doubt the most thorough and professional person we dealt with from start to finish. He is highly recommended."


"Ryan was extremely diligent in looking after our interests. He understood what we wanted and was able to eliminate properties that he knew we would not be interested in. He followed through to provide as much information on the processes as possible and was extremely proactive in getting information if he did not have an answer for us. We would 100% refer him to any of our friends and look forward to a new friendship with him."


"Ryan and Emily are most professional. They are most knowledgeable, highly responsive and very attentive."


"From the very start of our home search, Ryan was extremely helpful, straight to the point about everything, and very easy to work with. As first time home buyers, we had tons of questions and concerns. But Ryan and Emily were both very dedicated to explaining everything and making sure we knew exactly what we were getting into. We eventually found a great property, that happened to be a short sale. The team worked hard and the process went along smoothly, all the way to closing!"


"As a first time home buyer, I had no idea what to do or what to expect. Ryan was a knowledgeable and reassuring presence during the condo search. He guided me through the process, helped me refine what I was looking for, and once we found The Place and began moving towards closing, he took care of the little details that would otherwise have been seriously stressful. In general, Ryan made the whole process so much easier, and even kind of fun!"


"Ryan was incredibly helpful and flexible through our process. He took time to understand what we were looking for, communicated new opportunities in a timely manner and provided invaluable guidance throughout. We will highly recommend him in the future."


"Ryan and Emily Gossett are the best team a seller could ask to have in this tough real estate market. I don't just say that because they are my friends but because of their high level of professionalism, experience, knowledge and overall attention to detail. After already experiencing a stressful move overseas the last thing I wanted to worry about was the sale of my property in Chicago. Luckily, Ryan and Emily made the process easy for me and responded quickly to all of my varied questions and requests. Going through the short sale process was a daunting task however their experience and knowledge surpassed any previous inquiries I had made into this process. They have the right team working with them to get things done!! Thanks to both of them I am now able to focus completely on my new life in a new country."


"Ryan and Emily are extremely knowledgeable about Chicago real estate, and they provided me with much-needed guidance throughout the entire sales process, always acting in my best interest. They are consummate professionals, and I happily refer my friends to them who are considering buying or selling. I am extremely happy with my experience with Ryan and Emily!"


"Ryan was very responsive to my needs and worked hard to find a variety of great options during my search for a new home. He has a great understanding of the market and helped me to find a place that I will truly be satisfied with, not just a place I would buy quickly. I would recommend Ryan without hesitation!"


"Ryan was great. I am a results-oriented person, and Ryan definitely delivered. He sold my condo in just two months after it sat on the market for over a year. Then he helped me find and close on a new home shortly thereafter. My wife and I love the new place, which we never would have found without Ryan's help (he introduced us to a new neighborhood that we hadn't even been considering before). He's knowledgeable, professional, and he gets the job done."


"Ryan did a great job and was very patient. He stepped in on my behalf when he didn't have to and also worked hard to get me the best deal possible given the market conditions. He was never pushy or tried to get me to see things differently in order to just get the sale completed. I really couldn't imagine using anyone else in the future. He gained my trust very quickly and that's not an easy thing to do. If ever he needs a testimonial or referral just let me know!"


"Ryan was a good communicator with me which I found lacking from other agents. He was able to generate foot traffic quickly for my house and priced the house reasonable to sell the house quickly. He also provided candid analysis of my selling situation which helped sell the house quicker. I would recommend home to others considering selling their house in Chicago."


"Ryan was recommended to me not only by one friend, but by two! A mutual friend passed his information along to me in the beginning stages of my condo hunt. Before meeting Ryan I posted a message on Facebook looking for realtor recommendations. A different childhood friend sent me the exact same recommendation! I knew that I couldn’t go wrong working with Ryan since he was repeatedly recommended. Ryan immediately began working with me to find my dream condo. Ryan and Emily were always quick to answer any questions and were incredibly helpful in explaining the home buying process since I was a first time home buyer. Ryan was a complete joy to work with, an outstanding realtor, and an overall down to earth great guy and new friend!"


"Ryan and Emily were very professional. They were also very truthful as to the state of the market and the choices currently available to me. I'm happy with the choice I made."


"Ryan and his team provided a level of expertise and service that made us feel informed, involved and confident throughout our home sale. The team consistently gave us updates regarding the market and our home. They also responded promptly to any/all questions we had."


"Ryan and Emily Gossett were amazing agents. They are a cute, fun, positive and energetic couple that made my first time home buying experience a real treat. I would recommend them to any first or seasoned home buyer."


""We listed our condo the year before with no luck, so since we felt we didn't get the proper attention from our current agent we decided to find a new one when we decided to put our place back on the market. Ryan did a great job explaining to us what to expect as sellers in the current market and gave us a fair assessment of what he thought our place should be listed at. After that, we just listened to his advice and followed what he said closely as we figured he was the expert and we wanted to believe what he said would work. We are pleased to say after several months in a condo saturated market, we were able to sell our place so we could move onto the next step in our lives. We couldn't have done it without Ryan and Sarah at @properties.""


""Ryan was amazing and I would work with him again in a flash. I have already recommended him to several friends who are thinking about buying a home. I was a first-time buyer and Ryan was consistently patient, knowledgeable, high-spirited, and always supportive and available. He is savvy about Lincoln Park, the current (and volatile) market, is a great negotiator, and was always honest with me. I felt confident and calm having Ryan represent me and am thrilled to have worked with such a great agent during my first real estate experience.""


""Ryan Gossett is an excellent agent with a great work ethic, a real "can-do" attitude and a belief in looking out for his clients. We couldn't ask for anything more. We are very happy with our new condo and the price was great due to Ryan's great negotiating.""


""The Pinnacle Team is the best in the business. As a first time seller, knowing that we are currently in the midst of the absolute worst real estate market in history, let's just say I was a bit nervous. Sarah Lawrence and Ryan Gossett were able to calm those nerves. It was painless. They guided me through the process with ease. I had no idea what I needed to do to prep my condo for sale, but they were right there laying it all out for me. Once it was listed, I had 30 showings (there were never late for a showing) and always gave me feedback afterward. Even in this market, they were able to sell my place in 2 months... I was amazed. I actually received two offers on the same day! I can't say enough good things about the team. Sarah and Ryan are the most trustworthy agents around. That's exactly what I was looking for... agents I could trust. They've become even closer friends thanks to this process. I will recommend Sarah and Ryan to every person I come across looking to buy or sell real estate. @properties is lucky to have such great folks working for them."-Justin T., Lakeview"Ryans energy and passion to educate me about the Chicago real estate market during the property search and buying process was a true delight. He took a personal interest in covering properties of many different neighborhoods, from vintage to rehab to new construction, so that I could consider the value in each and identify what attributes were most important to me in selecting a fabulous first condo. I didnt have an attorney or inspector in mind early on, so Ryan shared some background on a list of contacts that he had, to ensure I chose professionals that matched my needs in the home-buying process. Ryan is an invaluable resource to everyone he works with because he is enthusiastically committed to serving the needs of his clients".- Kelly C., Lincoln Square"Ryan was tireless in his efforts to provide me with options that met the criteria that I was looking for in a home, both in terms of location and home characteristics. He also opened my eyes to new locations that I would not have thought of otherwise. In the end, I decided to purchase a home that I otherwise would not have seen without Ryan's input, creativity and hard work. I highly recommend Ryan to anyone who is looking to purchase or sell their home or condo."- Steve W., Lincoln Square"The level of attention I received from Ryan was second-to-none. As a first-time home buyer, he made sure that I was comfortable through-out the entire process, and that I was well-informed on the next steps. He went above and beyond to make sure that my needs were met, and that I was getting the best deal possible. I have already recommended him to my friends, and feel very comfortable doing so in the future.""

""I started working with Ryan a little over a year ago when I was thinking of upgrading to a larger condo in the downtown Chicago area. Ryan was great to work with for a variety of reasons. First, and most important to me was that he did not use a "high pressure" sales approach with me which made me very happy and much more trusting in his advice etc. Also, he did a TON of homework and research on the neighborhood I was selling in and the area that I wanted to buy in. He is very personable, hard working, and always looking out for your best interests. I would certainly recommend Ryan to anyone I knew who was looking to do something in the Chicago real estate market.""


""After talking with many different agents, I chose Ryan Gossett as my real estate agent and couldn't be any happier with my decision. After I told him what type of place I was looking for in a specific price range, I was extremely pleased to see that he was only interested in showing me condos that best fit my criteria. Just as I have been already, I would recommend Ryan to anyone who is interested in finding a real estate agent who cares about the buyer's / seller's best interest and goes way above and beyond, like no other agent I have seen yet.""


""We're so glad we decided to work with Ryan to find our first home! In addition to being a lot of fun to hang out with, Ryan is extremely knowledgeable. From the many and varied neighborhoods of Chicago to the intricacies of the home-buying process to the effects of changing market conditions, Ryan knows it all. He also has an impressive array of industry contacts. We used his recommendations for a mortgage broker, lawyer, and home inspector, all of whom were very professional and did great work.Ryan was always available and was happy to look at condos with us on many occasions. We never felt any pressure from Ryan, and he always put our interests first. He was always much more interested in finding us the perfect home than in completing a sale.We will whole-heartedly recommend Ryan to anyone looking for an agent, and we will definitely work with him in the future.""


"Ryan and Sarah did an outstanding job handling the marketing and eventual sale of our property. In this particularly difficult market we always felt that they were taking advantage of every opportunity to generate potential sales. In addition, they were both invaluable in assisting us with the property as we are often out of town. We would recommend this team to anyone looking to sell or buy a property based on their approach, knowledge, dedication and attitude.We cannot stress enough how much we appreciate the way Ryan and Sarah stuck with us during the sale process. It is a stressful event in the best of times and these are not the best of times. Their assistance and guidance meant a world of difference.Chip and Colleen Sandifer"


"Ryan was very attentive and walked me through the entire process. My move was difficult because I was selling a property in California and moving to Chicago. When my property in California sold in 6 days I was motivated to find a place in Chicago quickly. Overall it was great to work with Ryan because of his knowledge about structures, the market and areas where re-sale would be better. Very happy with the outcome and service."



"Ryan Gossett is unquestionably the best real estate agent I have ever worked with in my 35 years of buying properties in several different cities.

"This was my very first time buying a home/condo and i had an amazing experience. Ryan was such a great realtor and was extremely knowledgeable about the condo's in the area i was looking. He was very relate-able and he was easy to talk to regarding what i was looking for and what i wasn't looking for. He did a great job letting me know when he though a deal was a good one or when something was overpriced. All, in all, i would absolutely recommend Ryan Gossett to any one that i know who is looking to buy a home/condo."

"From start to finish, Ryan and team provided the ultimate full service. Communication and execution were A+. As sellers, we never felt misled or misinformed. Ryan's analysis on comps and valuation were spot on. We followed through on Ryan's suggestions and he delivered beyond expectations. As a result, we ended up getting 5 offers opening weekend and were able to quickly sell materially over asking price. You will not be disappointed. Believe in Ryan and his process - you will be thankful!"


"Our experience with Ryan Gossett and his entire team at @properties was very pleasant and professional. They take pride in teamwork and thrive to keep their customers honest and apprised throughout the process. Way to go team and wish you all the BEST!!!"


"The Pinnacle Team goes above and beyond every time. So grateful to work with such an awesome realtor!"


"Ryan was an excellent broker to work with for not only selling, but also buying our condo. Ryan was always available to chat via phone or e-mail, was prompt in all correspondences with us, provided us with honest feedback and advice, and overall was a pleasure to be around. My husband and I were so pleased with all the services Ryan has provided us over the years and will recommend him to all friends ."


"Ryan and his team were outstanding and professional from start to finish. They were very clear in all communications and treated us so well even though we were just looking for a rental. Ryan was highly recommended and exceeded all our expectations. His instincts are spot-on and we learned to trust his judgment quickly. He really knows the areas around Chicago well and has been very successful with his blend of knowledge, experience, and innate ability to rate and identify good value when he sees it. We will definitely ask his services again when we decide to buy!"


"Ryan, Emily, and the rest of their team have created a very streamlined process of preparing, marketing, listing, showing, evaluating offers, and selling a property. We attribute Ryan's experience and knowledge about the market as the reason our property had multiple offers and sold for more than the listing price all in under a week."
