Overall 5 star rating out of 8 reviews



"Emily is an incredible agent. From the very first phone call, she was warm, very personable and made herself available throughout the entire process. My husband and I were moving to the Northshore from Tyne city and had no idea where to begin. She is very knowledgeable of the real estate market in all areas of the Northshore. Emily listens to what you want and finds the right properties for very productive showing days. Because of her efficiency, she found us our home very quickly and was in high communication from offer negotiation and even after we closed to make sure we were happy! Can’t say enough great things. We would recommend Emily to anyone looking to purchase in the Northshore."

"I've been investing and acquiring real estate locally and nationally for over 20 years. Emily is one of the most impressive real estate brokers I've ever worked with."



"You're doing great work and other agents are talking about it. Here's what they're saying:
"She was a joy to work with- available & professional. I'd work with her again anytime." -Barbara Biederman"



"Emily is truly the best! She is intuitive, asks the right questions and really knew what we wanted in the right home. She is always responsive, on-time and has all of the relevant up-to-date information. She is always one step ahead. If there is a perfect real estate professional, Emily is it!"



"Thoughtful and conscientious throughout. Goes the extra mile and then a mile after that. I couldn't feel more taken care of."



"It was a genuine pleasure to work with Emily, who quickly helped us find and close on a new apartment in Evanston. She was prompt, attentive, efficient, well-informed, and pleasant to work with, combining an impressive work ethic with exceptional people skills. We found her advice to be sound and valuable, and she was always happy to answer questions, even when the list of questions seemed endless. We recommend her very highly."



"Emily hustles, works hard, is thoughtful and creative, and helped us navigate a difficult transaction through to close!"



"“Emily is a joy! Knowledgeable, responsive, fun, quick, direct and understanding. Her expert advice and energetic attitude made the process of selling AND buying easier and faster than expected. She’s the best realtor I have ever worked with, I’m now a lifelong client.”
- Suzy R."



"We worked with Emily to sell our home and help us purchase a new home. Her professionalism and warmth helped make the process as painless as possible. She worked hard throughout the entire process for both homes, and her expertise helped us secure a full price offer for our home (in November, a very slow time of year) and obtain a fair purchase price for the home we bought. We would highly recommend Emily."



"“Emily helped us buy our first home in Evanston. She is so caring and helpful during our house hunting process. She listens to our request and always very responsive to our request even our kids loved her.” ”
- Jenny"



"“We were moving from out of state on a very tight time frame and with specific requirements for price, location, and amenities. Emily immediately found a number of suitable properties and booked a full weekend of showings that dynamically morphed based upon our needs. She is intimately familiar with both Evanston and northern/ downtown Chicago. We had a contract signed within the next few days. But, Emily did not stop there; she remained fully engaged, including facilitating inspection and closing (an 8 hour session) via facetime. She even received an airbed for us. I cannot imagine a more professional and committed agent and likely future friend. I give Emily my strongest recommendation.”
- Scott B."



"“A Hockey Mom who will work with YOUR BEST INTEREST AT HEART!!! Cool & Rare.
Thank you, Emily!
You rock!”"



"“Emily Destefano handled both sides of our moving real estate transactions. The process was smooth, we felt informed about our buying decision, and we haven’t regretted one part of the decision. I cannot recommend her professional, level headed approach highly enough.
With our exposure to other agents in the buying process, those representing other parties, we were shown time and again that we made the right choice!”
- Shiela K."



"“Emily is the person you want to close a deal. She is personable and highly motivated.”"



"“We just partnered with Emily DeStefano to facilitate our transition to a new home. Emily’s attentiveness to the needs of our family is unparalleled. She listened and delivered with a “portfolio of homes” to show our family. Her knowledge of the North Shore is invaluable and she continues to amaze at every stage of the home-buying process!”"



"“I would absolutely recommend Emily to anyone selling real estate in Evanston”"



"“Emily Destefano was the most patient, considerate broker ever! There was not a question or favor she could not take care of. She is super patient, keeps a sense of humor, and went above and beyond with her care of our home. We had a few snags with an original o er and she kept her cool, gave great advice and ultimately got a new deal done within days. Love love her!”"
