We could not have dreamed of a better agent than Debbie. Debbie does an outstanding job and is always approachable, informative, helpful, and effective. We are grateful to her, and it was our great fortune to have Debbie guide us through this entire process from pre-contemplation through closing. We would most definitely recommend Debbie Watts to our family and closest friends

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
I met Laura at the very beginning of my journey as a homeowner and she stuck by my side until the very end, which didn't come until a year and a half later. She was incredibly patient, professional, and informative throughout the whole process and I'm so thankful I had her by my side. I would recommend her for first-time homebuyers especially, but also if it's your fifth time. She is a gem!

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
The broker that we used from Gagliardo, Kurt Fiedler, was fantastic! My husband searched Oak Park high and low for the perfect house and Kurt was patient and helpful the entire way through the process. He helped us get to know the area and, after several months of searching, found us the perfect home. If you are looking for a trustworthy broker who has a great depth of knowledge about the Oak Park area, ...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Couldn’t get any better. From the moment Rosa and I met to put my duplex on the market she was a pleasure to deal with. She came to my residence evaluated my property and listed it at a fair market value unknown to Rosa and myself the home would sell in a matter of hours I credit Rosa with her knowledge and experience and would highly recommend her to any of my friends and family who are looking to sell ...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
It was a pleasure to work with Julie Downey. Julie is knowledgeable and professional but is also very warm and personable. She helped us to find the perfect new home, and sold our previous house in one day! We searched for many months prior to finding our new home. She was very accommodating during the process and thorough when it came time to make offers on properties we were interested in. I would high...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
I can’t thank Laurel Saltzman enough for finding me a home. She is a total professional with a calm, matter-of-fact, positive attitude, and a sense of humor that made working with her a joy. She listened to me, knew what I wanted, what I could afford, and found it – fast. This was my first real estate purchase and Laurel stayed with me throughout the entire process. It was a difficult time for me, but sh...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Andy and his company were extremely knowledgeable of the local market and efficient at recruiting attention to our property. He gave us great advice before and during the process, all the way to the conclusion. Others to whom we were referred by him were equivalently professional, fishing, and knowledgeable. If I ever again move to or from the Oak Park and River Forest area, I would never think of callin...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
We were absolutely thrilled with Colleen’s commitment and service in finding us a new home. With my wife’s dog allergy, we had restrictions on what we were to purchase, and her pro-activity in finding out whether there were dogs living or visiting each home that came on the market was a huge help. She was very knowledgeable about the market and what was available, as well as the proper pricing. It was a ...

— Patrick O.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Although we have informally thanked you for all your hard work and time you put into finding us a home, we wanted to formally express our gratitude to you both, Alisa and Dan. Your professionalism was a pleasure and getting to know you both made us feel more like family. In doing business together, it is so apparent that you both have found careers that allow you to showcase your abilities and strengths!...

She held open houses when the time was right, and she followed up with me as well as followed through with prospective buyers was excellent and timely. She understands the business of real estate/buying and selling and ...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
If you are looking to buy or sell a house in River Forest or Oak Park do not look any further than Andy Gagliardo and his team. My husband and I were transferred out of state and were thrust into dealing with a slow real estate market, renters, prospective buyers, showings, etc. all from out of town. Andy went over and above to make sure every step was covered for us. He helped find renters and ultimatel...

— Seller

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
My purchase was a short sale which Andy Gagliardo warned me would not be simple. He was correct, but he handled everything perfectly. Before the offer, I had looked at numerous homes with Andy, and his knowledge of the local area is amazing. Remember he has been doing this for over 30 years. For instance, when we were looking at condos, I mentioned that I wanted to be able to grill on my balcony he was a...

— Jill B.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
My wife and I were on the verge of making an offer to purchase a home without the assistance of a broker. By chance, we became acquainted with Tom Poulos before we made the offer. Good thing because we learned that we were about to make an offer far in excess of the true market value of the home! We subsequently hired Tom to assist us with our purchase and also with the sale of our existing home. We foun...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Vadim and I just wanted to say how much we appreciate Vee and Greg as our real estate agents. We know that this has been an incredibly long journey, and you’ve been amazing every step of the way. I remember cold-calling your office two years ago- I chose Gagliardo simply because I wanted a real estate agent with an office that was actually in River Forest because I needed someone who could really explain...

— Danielle, Vadim & Aria

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
I feel very comfortable recommending Anne Brennan to you as a Realtor®. I had tried to sell my condo earlier in 2013 with another Realtor®and was unsuccessful. The prior Realtor® was not very aggressive in trying to market my unit and probably set an overly hopeful asking price. When I went to re-list I interviewed several Realtors® and ended up going with Anne. Anne helped me set a realistic asking pric...

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Noa Klima has represented us as our realtor on multiple transactions over the last 17 years. We love working with her because of her excellent customer service, attention to detail and willingness to go the extra mile. Recently, Noa sold our home in River Forest when we relocated out of state for a new job. She took care of so many details and made sure the process was as smooth as possible. We would def...
