See what our clients have to say.

We had a great experience with Sharon! She had a wealth of knowledge about buildings in the area we were looking. She advocated for us and guided us through the entire process from beginning to end. When there were bumps in the road, she was responsive and professional and got involved in solving the issue. I appreciated knowing I could depend on her. Sharon is a Realtor® I would use again and recommend to others.
Susan A.
Marissa and Sharon were absolutely wonderful in helping us buy our first home. We had a very short window to find a place and they were extremely responsive and helpful with securing our home. They gave great advice, asked all the questions that we would have never known to ask, and got us a great price on our home. I would highly recommend working with them!
Rachel S.
Sharon and her team were super responsive and quick to come out and view our unique home. She appreciated the work we recently did and captured beautiful photos that resulted in our home selling for full ask the first week we put it up. We had a very fast timeline given a move, and we could not have been happier. Highly recommend!

Peter and I want to thank you both for the excellent job you did helping us sell our condo. Your knowledge of and ability to help us navigate changing markets was invaluable. The marketing tools you employed enabled us to reach large numbers of highly qualified interested buyers. Years of experience in the high-end luxury market in our area were evident when we needed to make important decisions along the way. Most importantly, you listened to us. Every showing was conducted at our convenience with your help to make sure we were presenting at our best. The selling of one’s house is an emotional journey with important financial consequences. It is invaluable to have partners that can be trusted to give 100…

We have raved to everyone we know about what a great experience we had with Sharon Gillman selling our home. The bottom line, she got us a price we were pleased with. Sharon was a pro in every way, highly motivated and assiduous in her research. Sharon has a wealth of experience with 30 years in real estate, which is truly what you want from someone selling your home. What’s more, Sharon is simply one of the nicest people we have ever met. She will look around your home with an experienced eye and give you some (much-needed) tough love about what needs to go and what needs to be presented differently in order to attract buyers, but she does so with your own best interests at heart. We learned very quickly…

We’ve been working with Amie for the better part of a decade at this point and consider her the best in the business. She helped us find our first apartment in Chicago, brokered the acquisition and subsequent sale of our first condo, placed us in our current apartment, and is currently helping us find our next home. Amie’s expertise in the Chicago real estate market, coupled with her amicable personality and commercial approach to getting deals done, makes her a must-have for your next move, whether it’s buying/selling a home or renting an apartment/condo in the city. I’ve recommended Amie to several friends and colleagues over the course of the past several years, and they’ve all agreed she’s outstanding!

I have worked with Sharon for over 30 years. She sold us our first house in Lincoln Park and was fabulous! She helped us negotiate the price, aided at the closing, and was a great resource for contractors and tradesmen to do the work once we closed. Through the 25 years we lived there, she sent monthly newsletters to keep in touch. And then when it was time to sell that house and find a condo we contacted her again. She listed the house, did constant marketing and open houses, helped us stage the house, and sold it in a few months. Meanwhile, she found us the most fabulous condo in Streeterville and we closed and moved in 30 days. She is the best and nicest agent, anywhere!
Randi W.
I have worked with Sharon since 2003 - a total of 4 sales transactions and 5 purchases. She is the consummate professional in tailoring each search to my unique needs. Here's where Sharon really shines: getting a sale contract to the finish line of being a closed deal. It's always such an anxious time. I know I'm in very good hands with Sharon: she has great referrals for inspectors and attorneys, she addresses my buyer's questions, and she is laser-focused on managing all the small details that can derail a deal if not attended to properly. Sharon is market-savvy and smart.
John B.
Sharon Gillman knows Chicago real estate and she knows people. We were in the market for an additional unit in our existing building. She worked with the Realtor® on the sales side to make a deal that worked for both sides. It was a no-nonsense, quick negotiation that led to a short turn-around time. Sharon is a "full-service" Realtor®, helping us find a reasonably priced attorney, inspection person, and anything we needed. It was during COVID and we closed within days of acceptance.
Tom & Jennifer
I have known Marissa for many years both personally and professionally and I can honestly say, that she is a class act. Marissa is smart, hard-working, and extremely thoughtful. She exudes a certain kind of warmth, grace, and fair-mindedness that is rare. I plan on recommending Marissa to friends and business associates, and will certainly work with her again in the future. She was an integral part in our making the sale of our home stress-free.
Irene S.
We were first-time homeowners moving from California during the pandemic. Amie jumped in right away and even found us a short-term rental while we took the time to search for our home. She truly listened to us on what we needed, answered our endless questions, and helped us find the perfect location for our two dogs. She’s highly knowledgeable about Chicago neighborhoods and a fantastic person to work with.
Emily & Andrew
Sharon and her team were terrific to work with. Always provided sound advice both with staging and pricing, but most importantly Sharon was patient and empathetic. We were selling through the Covid summer and fall of 2020 which created all kinds of challenges and setbacks. Sharon was a calming force in a very turbulent time. Thoughtful. Proactive. And got the job done.
Hugh
Marissa is thoughtful, goes above and beyond what is necessary, is willing to do what others shy away from, and is humble and kind. The difference between those that are good and those that are great is that greatness comes from doing a little bit more all of the time. Marissa does a little bit more, even when she doesn’t have to, and to me, that was priceless.
Helen Y.
Amie is a great Realtor® to work with. She makes looking at places very fun and is very detail-oriented at the same time. She listened to my wants and needs and helped me find the perfect home. I have already recommended her to several friends who have begun their search with her. I would use her as an agent a hundred times over.
Jamie
Sharon was fabulous. We have used her multiple times and with great success. During the sales process, she was very proactive about getting visibility in the market and is always prompt and organized. We will be in need of Realtor® services again in the next few years and look forward to having Sharon handle our needs.
Steven E.
What a pleasure it is to work with Marissa! She has an impressive ability to gauge client needs and a wonderful sense of quality and style. Her insight of market conditions and advice in negotiating are invaluable. Marissa Schaefer is a real find in the real estate arena.
Sandy R.
We appreciated your professionalism and earnest efforts on our behalf. The experience was made all the more pleasant for me because you have handled us so well. If I have to be involved in real estate transactions, I want you on our team.
Harry S.
Marissa is truly outstanding! She is responsive, attentive and provides outstanding advice to her clients. I have had the pleasure of working with Marissa for a number of years and can only say that I would highly recommend her.
Alexis S.
Amie helped me find the perfect apartment. She was personable, fun, and a pleasure to work with. If I ever plan another move, I will definitely reach out to Amie for her assistance!

Loved working with Amie. She quickly learned what I liked/disliked and helped me find a great place! I will definitely work with her again when it's time to move!
