If you're looking for a house in the Oak Park/ River Forest community , this is the go to firm. They know the market and how to get the job done. We worked with Andy Gagliardo and he were fantastic.
"When we decided to sell our home, we wanted simply the best Realtor in River Forest to market it. We knew from past experiences and great professional references that we would use Andy Gagliardo. He and his organization performed admirably, from preparing the market assessment, home pricing, counseling on the home preparation, marketing the property and contract negotiation. The results were an overwhelming number of showings in the first two weeks of the listing, and we received multiple offers to buy the home. The house sale closed in about four weeks.We would recommend Andy Gagliardo and his team to anyone buying or selling in our community."
Andy gave us peace of mind and always remained calm through every step of the selling process. He acted professionally in all situations, even in dealing with a delicate renter situation. Andy has a great personality and knows River Forest in and out. He never panicked even when we were anxious. Loved working with him!!
Our family has bought and sold with Gagliardo Realty for years. Andy is honest, trustworthy and knows what he is doing. When we first sat down to discuss the sale of my house, he gave me some sound advice what preparations were necassary to make the house attractive and what wouldnt have much impact. Turns out it was good advice, the house sold one day after it was listed and at a fair price. Andy gets all our business and will continue to do so. I couldnt have been more satisfied with my experience with Andy.
Andy is great! He is the expert on Oak Park and River Forest. He was the first person we thought of when we decided to list our house.He was practical in his recommendations and had our house sold in less than a week!
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 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 calling anyone else. I am sure he demonstrates equivalent expertise around Chicagoland in general, but I know he does a lot of superior work in those areas.
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 ultimately buyers for us, all along with a sense of calm, understanding and responsiveness that always, always made us confident he had our back and our best interests in mind. When Andy helped get the house sold, he went out of his way to make the transaction as smooth as possible, handling every detail with expertise and trust in what can be a very tricky and emotional transaction. I only recommend using Andy Gagliardo for any of your real estate transactions...and then KEEP using him again and again.
After working with many realtors, Andy has proven to be the best. His local market knowledge, respectful and timely communication and unbelievable availability was professional and refreshing! His advice to our family was critical to our finding our ideal home. He helped us to make the right choice and we couldn't be happier. A pleasure to work with and a class act!
Andy is the go-to guy in the Oak Park/River Forest area. He understands the market better than anyone, and gives great advice. We've used him both on the buy and sell side and he never steered us wrong. Highly recommend!
My purchase was a short sale which Andy 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 able to tell me that there is on;y one complex in the entire OPRF community that allows grills on the balconies. This immediately eliminated wasted time looking at other condos. He has all sorts of knowledge like this. Also, in some of the older homes, I would see many plumbing or electrical items in the basements that I did not understand. He knows them all. He also pointed out warning signs of water damage or covering up of water damage so I wouldn't get burned. He was not just interested in makiung a sale, but interested in making the right sale for the client. Great agent.
