"When my company moved my family from Chicago to North Carolina, selling our Chicago home seemed impossible in the daunting market. My company required us to work with various other realtors of which none have been effective. During that time you came over, delivered a very well researched market plan with our home along with a very effective selling strategy. I was immediately impressed. Far above anything the other prior realtors have done. When I said OK, Go - you totally went! In a market that was depressing, you created results almost immediately! After you took over, with grace and cheer. I couldn't believe we had an offer in less than a week! You were ALWAYS cheerful, courteous, extremely cognizant and politely in command of what needed to happen next for best results. During our busy adjustments to our big move, you did so much in the background to keep our lives very simplified. Thank you for making what was a very tough and difficult situation for us, very fluent and easy. You did a superior job in every way!" - Todd
"Amy is one of the most dedicated and professional Realtors I've worked with. She is first and foremost an advocate for her clients, whether they are buying or selling. Amy is not content to go with the status quo; she is always looking for better, more unique and more effective ways to market her clients' properties. Her personal attention to each client is impressive, and I have recommended Amy and her partner Jim to friends and family with complete confidence that The Foote Team is the best way to sell or buy a home in McHenry and Kane counties." - Jenn
"Amy was a true professional - and cared about selling our home for the best price according to the current market. She guided me through the process, and her advertising of our home was impeccable. She corresponded well with our real estate attorney to insure closing was efficient and accurate as to details. I had our home listed with Coldwell Banker for a year prior, and Baird and Warner succeeded in giving me more for my money - better feedback, better commission, and simply better service to sell my home once listed with Amy within three months!! Could not be happier with our experience with this wonderful caring lady!!!" - Kathleen
"Outstanding realtor. Very thorough, phenomenal responsiveness, extremely professional. Amy was our realtor on both the sale and purchase. We purchased a 50 acre parcel, that on a cold winter snowy day, Amy walked the entire property with my family and I. Very competitive. A great resource to have on your side." - Michael
"Melody and I really enjoyed working with Amy Foote. She is the consummate professional. We were fortunate to have Amy involved in both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. My first impression of Amy was twofold; 1., Professionalism, and 2; Competitive. I thought to myself, what a great combination. During the process, she demonstrated these two qualities over and over again, aside from many others. As you can appreciate, trying to sell homes in the recent environment is challenging. Amy kept Melody and I "calm" with her steady demeanor. As for being competitive, I could tell early on that Amy did not like to lose. Along the way, several "curve balls" were thrown our way and Amy refused to give up or ever lose hope. She "handled" every situation that came our way. Additionally, Amy will "do what it takes" to get the job done. In reference to our purchase, our new home sits on 50 acres. I decided to pick the coldest, snowiest January day to ask Amy to "walk" the property. I thought for sure she would just show us the way and let us loose. Nope, she showed up with her hat and gloves and ski clothing and took the one hour walk through the property with us. Needless to say, I was impressed enough to ask Amy to list our house once her seller accepted our "house to sell" contingency. Melody and I absolutely love our new home and we thoroughly enjoyed working with a true professional along the way. Thanks Amy" - Michael
Amy is a wife, a proud mother, an avid sports fan of her kids who gets a little mouthy with the refs, a wannabe karaoke superstar, a former athlete, and a lover of Romance Red.
Her clients have said she is a hard worker and attentive to detail, who is always there when they call text or email. Amy considers her greatest compliment came from the 8-year-old daughter of a client who wrote her a sweet note, torn from a little orange note pad, calling her the 1st Best Agent that still hangs on her wall after she spent 3 years with them looking for a house! It always makes her smile to see the impact she has on the whole family!
