What Clients Have to Say About Gayle....

"This is the second time I’ve asked Gayle to help me sell my home. From the beginning she listened to all my preferences about listing the house and still managed to get me a buyer within days. My first buyer backed out and yet Gayle had kept the momentum going with other agents and found a new buyer within a week. Over the years I’ve known Gayle. She's always checked in without being intrusive and treated me like a client not a transaction. Since I was hurting and selling at the same time, I relied on Gayle to do a host of little things like handling my water bill, getting the town transfer tax, coordinating things with my closing attorney…really above and beyond. Gayle thanked me for the privilege of working with her. She really had it backward because the privilege was mine." -WN

"We can sum up our experience with Gayle Stellas in one word - WOW! We were out-of-town sellers needing to sell an inherited property with missing paperwork and no ability to be around for the sale. We came into town for just a few days and Gayle wowed us with her initial presentation. We left town two days later, leaving everything in her very capable hands. She took care of every detail (there were a lot!), got us multiple offers for far more than we thought the property was worth, and had us closed and paid in less than three weeks! We can’t speak highly enough of her professionalism, dedication, and market knowledge. In the scheme of things this certainly wasn’t a big dollar listing but she made us feel as if it was her most important one. She turned what we expected to be a very stressful situation into a terrific experience and we can’t recommend her highly enough! Thank you Gayle!-DB


"Gayle went above and beyond for us! She is very knowledgeable and every house we liked she did thorough research until we found the one we loved. She helped us predict taxes and recommended excellent professionals to start our remodeling project. I can not recommend her enough! Gayle is a true gem!" - OD

"James, Andrew and I want to express our deep gratitude for all your hard work, dedication and the time you spent in selling our parent’s home. You are a true professional, attentive to detail and always stayed the course through a challenging market. Thank you for always going above and beyond throughout nights and weekends. Your expertise and excellent service will always be remembered. We highly recommend Gayle Stellas an expert at best to anyone seeking a professional Realtor. "  - RM

"I had a great experience using Gayle not only is she very professional but a compassionate person. I was selling my home after 27 years and it was an emotional experience, she does little extras that mean a lot!. I recommend her to anyone selling or buying a new home. She really went out of her way to make this process easier. Gayle also helped me in my initial process of purchasing my new home which was being built." - RH

"Gayle has been our realtor for over 10 years, walking us through our first rental apartment to our first home purchase, sale and now our "forever" home. Her expertise on the local Chicagoland market and her keen eye for detail and negotiation has served us well. Recently, we asked her to come and provide advice on the potential sale of our home in Skokie. She came over, made a few inexpensive and easy recommendations and then had the house listed within two weeks. Given her thoroughness and connections, we had two offers within 24 hours and sold above list price within three days! If you are putting a house on the market in the Chicagoland area- I can recommend no better listing agent.  - JE

"Gayle was perfect. She shattered my expectations, was extremely knowledgeable, and delivered an incredible selling experience." - AS
