Amie was very professional and worked very hard to sell my home. I couldn't ask for anything more from an agent. She returned my calls/text/emails, explained everything I didn't understand, and helped negotiate the sale with easy. I have recommended her to everyone I know who is selling their home or buying a new home. I found Dreamtown interactive website of my home was amazing! I really can't say enough about Amie - she is a wonderful honest person that works hard.

If 5 is the highest, then I rate Todd a 6! Mine was a tough deal, but Todd stood strong. He handled every aspect with poise, professionalism, and determination. I always felt like he had my back. His advice was wise and a comfort when the going got tough. Todd will entertain, articulate, provide sound guidance through his wealth of knowledge and make you very happy you chose him for your real estate needs. You want this guy on your side!

Amie is amazing. She found a renter for me and helped me set an appropriate rental price. She took all the stress of finding a tenant off of my shoulders. I felt safe having Amie working for me. I will definitely use her again!

Amie was great! I live in San Francisco and selling my property from across the country was stressful. Having Amie lead the process put me at ease. The fact that she lives and knows the neighborhood where my condo iw was key! She could talk up the benefits of living in the area but was also knowledgeable when it came to all of the upcoming changes in the area. At one point I was incredibly stressed about the condo not selling fast enough and Amie reassured me that dropping the price was NOT a good idea and to be patient. She was right and it sold where I wanted it to and within a short period of time. It was much easier than I thought and that really had to do with Amie. I also appreciated that she picked up the phone every time I called; to me it showed she cared and that the sale of my condo was important to her despite her heavy workload.

Amie was great! It was our first home buying experience, and Amie's knowledge and communication of everything in the process made for a very positive experience. She took us through every step and made it easy to make a good decision. We couldn't be happier!

I felt supported by Amie throughout my entire apartment purchase experience. She was patient when I wanted to go back and look at apartments a second time and helped me ask myself the right questions in deciding Which place was right for me. On the day of my closing,after the papers were signed, she accompanied me to my apartment and tested and sorted the keys to make sure I knew which keys belonged to which locks. This might seem like a small thing, but it really helped ground me at a time when I was feeling very overwhelmed. If I ever again need a real estate agent, Amie will be the first one I call!

Brian and I wanted to express our appreciation for all of your efforts in selling our townhouse. We are confident that the work and staging Todd recommended upfront along with the marketing of the property are the reasons that our unit sold so quickly and at a great price. It is such a great feeling to head into the holidays/winter without a house sitting on the market! Your excellent responsiveness was appreciated as well. We will not hesitate to recommend you in the future.

Amie was everything that we expected in an agent: consultative, knowledgeable, respectful, detail-oriented, prompt. She knew how to roll with the punches -- especially during a home-buying and home-selling process that had its ups and downs. She knows the market and can anticipate/predict how sellers and prospective buyers will react. We would highly recommend her.

Todd was a "dream" to work with. He helped us naviagate the entire process from preparing the place to go on market to the final steps. He provided sage advice and experience along the way to ensure a smooth and successful transaction. I have worked with Todd on several transactions and he continues to impress me and remind me why I continue to use him. This was my husband's first real estate experience with Todd as his broker and was equally impressed, telling me "he is worth EVERY penny."

Amie went above and beyond as my agent. Not only did she help me with my purchase here in Chicago, she also helped me strategize through my sale in a different city. She was available, helpful, and a true partner is the process. I highly recommend her and I look forward to working with her again when the time comes.

Amie was so wonderful to work with! She is very knowledgeable of Chicago real estate. It was especially challenging for me since I had already relocated to another state. Amie took the time to help with the transition from rental to listing for me while I was remote. She gives personal attention and advice, and you know your sale is in good hands!

Amie is absolutely awesome! She took the time to get to know us and understand exactly what we were looking for. She definitely went the extra mile for us along every single step and I cannot thank her enough for that! Such a pleasurable experience with her and she is definitely our agent for life! I canâ??t say enough good thing about her- absolutely best in class agent!

Amie was fantastic to work with. She worked hard to show my place and get me the best possible price for it. She was also patient with me as I searched for the perfect place and was able to answer any questions I had. Her knowledge of the neighborhood was extensive and she was able to give me background and insight to the buildings and their history. If I had doubts, Amie was right there to talk me through everything. She was as invested in me finding the right place as I was. It's exactly the kind of person you want to work with!

Todd was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was both my selling agent (we sold in 5 days above asking) and buyers agent. He found the perfect place for me that I knew the second I walked in was the place I would live. He was very responsive to all my questions, follow-ups, etc. I would use todd again and certainly recommend him to my friends/colleagues that may be looking to buy/sell.

Amie was great! She patiently helped us find a home and offered opinions that were strong enough to be helpful, but still respected our views. She really helped us sell our condo. We did some major revisions and staging based on her recommendations and we think they worked out well for us. I definitely recommend her. Her most valuable quality for me was that she offered her honest take on things - even when the news might not be what we were hoping to hear. She also had a valuable working knowledge of remodeling/repair ballpark costs.

Todd made my home selling experience the best! He took care of everything!
Pam K.
Todd was the most aggressive of the candidates we interviewed when we chose a realtor to sell our two condos, and he delivered, proving himself far more knowledgeable and in-tune with the market than the others. He was very creative in his listing efforts, and went far above and beyond what any other realtor would have done to get the transactions closed. When it came time to help us buy our house, he really got to know us and what we were looking for in a house, including the "feel" of it, which can be very difficult to identify. When he told us he found the house for us, he was right, and we quickly called the place "home". Todd has a great handle on the market, gets to know his clients well in order to serve them the best, is great to work with, and works his tail off to satisfy. We couldn't have been happier with our choice to work with him, and would recommend him to anyone!

Amie made our first-time home buying experience enjoyable. We had so many rookie questions, and Amie took the time to thoroughly explain the process to us. She is a knowledgable and connected agent second to none! She has a great team of trust-worthy professionals who will guide you through the buying process. We couldn't be more happy with our experience, and highly recommend Amie to any home buyers and sellers.

Every aspect of the home search and purchase process was top-shelf. Todd listened to us, mashed our wish list with his market knowledge and we were able to move quickly when we needed to. He advised graciously and thoughtfully during the fraught negotiation phase. And in the end we have a home that exceeds our dreams, and someone we consider a friend in Todd.

Excellent experience with Amie in the sale of my condo in Edgewater. It only took 1 day to sale!! I am currently using Amy as my real estate professional as I look for a house in the suburbs. In this endeavor, i have appreciated her patience and willingness to drive out to the burbs to assist in my search.

We LOVE Todd! We purchased our first home through him. From picking us up to go to showings, to working through a personal conflict, to helping us narrow down an area to find our condo- he was just EXCELLENT! We don't even have words for how he much we respect and trust him. We made a great friend in Tood and will definitely use his services again when we move to our next place.

We had a wonderful experience with Todd. He completely saw the vision for our unit and who would be our buyer, and made the listing and promotion sold the unique aspects that brought that vision to life.

Amie is an absolute rockstar. She is the one person I trust when it comes to my real estate needs. Amie has guided me and helped me understand trends and markets that ultimately lead to the sale of our property. Amie also helped me rent my property for several years, finding quality tenants, and management services that added value. She is a good friend, and incredible agent.

Amie was steadfast in her support as we waded through the bureaucratic waters of the short sale process. She was kind, thoughtful and so generous with her time and attention.
Jeremy B.
After having our condo listed for over a year, we decided to change things up. We asked around and Todd Szwakowski came highly recommended. We could have not been happier with his service. He was very professional, organized, and efficient. Within no time he had interested buyers in our place and had us under contract in a fraction of the time the other realtor had the listing. He really took the time to put our mind at ease and followed through with what he told us. Although we had a smaller listing, Todd treated us like a high-profile client with a 7 figure listing. If you are looking for someone to sell your home and keep your best interest in mind, Todd is your guy! Brian & Kelli

Amie was fantastic! She really listened to me about what I was looking for in a new home. She was also very helpful and patient. We looked at over 20 places before I found the right home for me. Amie knows the city very well, shared her knowledge with me, and answered my many questions. Amie works very hard and is dedicated to finding her clients the right home. I would highly recommend Amie to anyone looking for a home in the city and will definitely use her again in the future.

Todd, you've been a part of our family for quite sometime, so this sale is bittersweet and means goodbye to you! (Unless we buy a place in Chicago again...Probably not going to happen!) thank you for all your hard work, positive energy and constant professionalism. You're super good at what you do and don't ever stop. All reco's are headed your way! I'm definitely looking forward to that dinner in NYC! Tim & Melissa Lucar, Lincoln Square

Hi Amie! It was amazing working with you! You made a tough estate situation seamless. Your experience, attention to details, guidance and availability when we had questions or issues was appreciated more than you know. If anyone needs a referral- you are at the top!! Thank you again for a job well done!

Five stars just is not enough to describe our experience with Amie. My fiance and I were looking to buy our first condo in Chicago and I cannot imagine completing the transaction without Amie at our side. She listened carefully to what we needed, offered a unique perspective on properties we thought we were interested, and delivered our dream home after four showings! The process of completing the transaction was very stressful because of my particular lender, but Amie took care of everything and was cool, calm, and collected no matter what happened. Whether you are new to the real estate market or a seasoned veteran, Amie is an incredible asset and a true professional.
