"We worked with Samantha to sell our current home and buy a new home. She did an amazing job on both ends. She explained the strategy that we would use to sell our home in a very thoughtful, convincing, and understandable way. She was very respectful of our concerns and extremely responsive. On the buying end, she was tough, realistic and patient. She let us talk through our thought process before offering her own suggestions and insights, which were very helpful. All around, she made what can be a stressful experience more seamless than stressful."

"Samantha was introduced to us by Patty Lucas. Samantha came into our home and went through detail the issues that needed attention prior to putting our home on the market. She put forth a fierce campaign on setting our sale price based on her market knowledge for the area. The house sold in a week to a wonderful family that will enjoy the space and amenities. She was relentless in listening to our needs and price point for a future home. She made over 15 appointments. Was tireless in showing us the houses. With a young infant at home, she never compensated her professionalism. She negotiated on issues that we had. At many moments she seamlessly made decisions on weather the house was a right fit. It was as if she understood what we wanted and the potential for us. Once we navigated to the house we liked. She shined through negotiations. Although it was a very stressful period , Samantha created a stress free environment. She calmly and tactfully negotiated. At the signing, she brought her always present smile and a wonderful bottle of bubbly to celebrate the occasion. I would highly recommend Samantha for any prospective buyers/sellers."
"Samantha helped me find the perfect new home and I fully recommend her to anyone looking for a lovely, knowledgeable, and professional agent. She was responsive to my every specification and knows the Chicago area market so well! She helped me make up my mind and prioritize when I was undecided. Not to mention she made the whole process a lot less stressful for me with her input and reassurance."

"We are highly impressed with Amy right from our initial conversation up until the closing. She was very prompt in answering all our questions. The care she took in getting the home ready for going on the market on a short notice is extremely commendable. Her instincts and guidance on various topics never went wrong. We can't thank her enough and would recommend her to anyone looking to sell/buy home in a heartbeat."
“We have already told others about our incredible experience that we had with Amy. We used her both to sell our house and purchase a new home. Our home was sold within 16 days, and she got us into a short sale we purchased within 2 months. The best thing about her was how comfortable she made us feel. She really cared about looking out for our best interest, and it showed! She was super responsive and very patient with all of our questions, which we had many!! Amy is amazing and we would use her again in a heartbeat!”
