Sharon Gillman knows Chicago real estate and she knows people. We were in the market for an additional unit in our existing building. She worked with the realtor on the sale side to make a deal that worked for both sides. It was a no nonsense, quick negotiation that led short turn-around time. Sharon is a "full-service" realtor, helping us find a reasonably priced attorney, inspection person and anything we needed. It was during COVID and we closed within days of acceptance. - Tom & Jennifer

★★★★★
Sharon and her team were terrific to work with. Always provided sound advice both with staging and pricing, but most importantly Sharon was patient and empathetic. We were selling through the Covid summer and fall of 2020 which created all kinds of challenges and set backs. Sharon was a calming force in a very turbulent time. Thoughtful. Proactive. And got the job done. - Hugh

★★★★★
I have worked with Sharon since 2003 -- a total of 4 sales transactions and 5 purchases. She is the consummate professional in tailoring each search to my unique needs. Here's where Sharon really shines: getting a sale contract to the finish line of being a closed deal. It's always such an anxious time. I know I'm in very good hands with Sharon: she has great referrals for inspectors and attorneys, she addresses my buyer's questions, and she is laser-focused on managing all the small details that can derail a deal if not attended to properly. Sharon is market-savvy, and smart, smart, smart. - John B.

I have worked with Sharon for over 30 years. She sold us our first house in Lincoln Park and was fabulous! She helped us negotiate the price, aided at the closing and was a great resource for contractors and tradesmen to do the work once we closed. Through the 25 years we lived there, she sent monthly newsletters to keep in touch. And then when it was time to sell that house and find a condo we contacted her again. She listed the house, did constant marketing and open houses, helped us stage the house and sold it in a few months. Meanwhile she found us the most fabulous condo in Streeterville and we closed and moved in 30 days. She is the BEST and NICEST agent, ANYWHERE!! - Randi W.

Dear Sharon and Marissa - Peter and I want to thank you both for the excellent job you did helping us sell our condo. Your knowledge of and ability to help us navigate changing markets was invaluable. The marketing tools you employed enabled us to reach large numbers of highly qualified interested buyers. Years of experience in the high end luxury market in our area were evident when we needed to make important decisions along the way. Most importantly, you listened to us. Every showing was conducted at our convenience with your help to make sure we were presenting at our best. The selling of one’s house is an emotional journey with important financial consequences. It is invaluable to have partners that can be trusted to give 100%. You have our sincerest thanks for a successful outcome and an almost stress free Journey. We cannot thank you enough. - Linda & Peter K

★★★★★
Sharon was fabulous. We have used her multiple times and with great success. During the sales process she was very proactive about getting visibility in the market and is always prompt and organized. We will be in need of realtor services again in the next few years and look forward to having Sharon handle our needs. - Steven E.

★★★★★
We have raved to everyone we know about what a great experience we had with Sharon Gillman selling our home. Bottom line, she got us a price we were pleased with. Sharon was a pro in every way, highly motivated, and assiduous in her research. Sharon has a wealth of experience with 30 years in real estate, which is truly what you want from someone selling your home. What’s more, Sharon is simply one of the nicest people we have ever met. She will look around your home with an experienced eye and give you some (much-needed) tough love about what needs to go and what needs to be presented differently in order to attract buyers, but she does so with your own best interests at heart. We learned very quickly that the faster you listen to Sharon and do what she wisely advises, the faster you will successfully sell your home! - Sarah R.
