Amy Duong Kim's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with
Amy Duong Kim

    • As most other reviewers have attested, Amy is incredibly hardworking, talented, personable, and most of all dedicated to her clients and making sure they are well represented in a real estate transaction. I cannot say enough good things about her especially as a first-time home buyer; she was very patient with us throughout months of searching for the right place, never hesitated to go out of her way so that we could see properties we were interested in as soon as possible (which can be important in fast moving areas like West Loop), and made communication a breeze. One thing that perhaps hasn't been mentioned by others that I noticed is that Amy is very well connected, and more often than not she knows the realtor on the other side of a deal. Those kind of connections can go a long way towards ensuring a smooth experience for both buyer and seller.

    • Amy was so helpful with referrals and walking us through our first time buying a home. She offered very useful insight and comments about each property and tips for what to watch out for. She also helped us find answers to all kinds of questions about mortgage options and gave us honest feedback on negotiating an ideal purchase price. Her experience in the field especially shines through in her connections and referrals for contractors, real estate attorney, and loan options. She gives valuable input and also respects your space and appreciates your concerns and priorities. Thanks for leading us through the whole purchasing experience!

    • My husband and I were the first-time homebuyers - and I bet this process wouldn't be easy for us if we didn't have Amy as our agent. She is a very hard-working, dedicated person. She immediately started building great relationship with us, getting to know us and our needs. For any question we could possibly ask she'd already had the answer ready.We have viewed quite a few condos - and every time Amy scheduled the best time possible, always been with us and at our side and patiently moved on with our search. She's always been very thorough explaining details to us and sharing her thoughts about the listings. And when we finally found what we were looking for, Amy was there to support us, to guide us through the closing without any worries. I would definitely recommend her as one of the best and most knowledgeable agents in Chicago - and would most certainly reach out to her again in our future real estate endeavors.

      - Olga S.
    • I worked with Amy this past year. She helped me find my dream home this past fall. In addition to that, she was able to help sell my previous place which was listed in late Nov, and just closed in Feb, which is absolutely amazing given the fact that this is considered the off peak season, and usually not recommended to list during this season. But I was able to sell at a fair market value and was very happy with the result. Her and her team are the best in the business - they are extremely knowledgeable and treat each customer uniquely.

      - Grant W.
    • We worked with Amy on purchasing our first home last year and looking back, couldn't be more pleased and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.Amy is extremely knowledgeable with regards to the landscape of the Chicago land area, trends in the market, the assigned school district, neighborhood trends and demographics, etc.. She arranged for us to see over a dozen homes all within a single day and offered excellent insight with regards to floor plans, what items added value to the home and estimated renovation costs for parts of houses we would potentially want to change.She guided us through the entire process and was very responsive throughout. If our family ever decides to move, we'd most definitely reach out and would love to work with Amy again.

    • Everything about the home-buying experience was annoying, except working with Amy. She's fantastic.As first time home buyers, visiting from out of town and in a hurry, we were lucky to find Amy. She's knowledgeable, friendly, and brings with her none of the smarmy posturing that seems to haunt the real estate industry. We met a lot of agents in our whirlwind tour of Chicago, and in every case we were glad to have Amy on our side. She scheduled a dense weekend of viewings that perfectly matched our desires and aesthetics, jumped into negotiation with zeal, got us a great deal on a lovely condo, and remained helpful and communicative throughout the entire process. If we ever move again, we'll definitely try to hire Amy.

      - Erik S.
    • I can't say enough about the experience my husband and I had with Amy. We contacted her (after finding her through Yelp), one month after we got married. Two clueless newlyweds who had no idea what they wanted, what they could afford, and where they wanted to live. 7 months, 5 contracts, a million annoying questions, emails, and phone calls and many showings on weekends and nights later, we own our home sweet home! She is simply amazing, she has so much knowledge, experience, and advice to share it's incredible. Not only was she our Realtor but she found us our inspector and attorney for the process as well. She's extremely approachable which is great when you don't know what you are doing. She's was so accessible also, we almost felt bad. We like to get things done especially in the competitive market, so if we emailed her at ten o'clock at night, hoping for a response by 5 pm the next day, she would often times email us back by 10:15! Lastly, she goes to bat for you. You want a 200,000 dollar home but can only afford 150,000? She will go immediately into debate mode, making other Realtors twice her age speechless. All in all, we could never have overcome the home buying process (and the short sale process) without Amy and we can't thank her enough. If you are looking for a new home, trying to sell your home, or even just considering the process contact her, you will be in very good hands! We hope she expands her area to the suburbs by the time we are ready to move again!

    • Amy is a true credit to her profession. She is calm, cool, and collected, and knows her stuff better than most. I love working with her and wish more realtors out there would follow the Amy Duong template of excellence.

      - Coby H.
    • I worked with Amy as a first time buyer to find a condo in Chicago. She is very laid back and truly wants to help you to find exactly what you are looking for, without letting you walk into a bad investment. Amy kept me calm throughout the whole process and provided excellent insight to help me find the perfect place to live. I would 100% recommend her to a friend.

      - Jaime A.
    • Wow! Amy was fantastic!My husband and I just purchased our first home with Amy, and we could not be happier. Amy was so available and informative (and we had a ton of questions!). When we began the process we already knew almost exactly what we were looking for. Amy helped us look at the places that we were interested in and some others that she thought may be of interest to us. She was able to give very immediate and direct feedback about what we were seeing, which was helpful because we are not from Chicago and not as familiar with the available options. Amy was available for every little question that we had, any time of the day, any day of the week. Even after we were under contract she checked on us from her honeymoon in Asia! In the end we got the place we wanted for not a penny more than we said we were willing to pay. She even offered to bring boxes over for us to help with the move- now that is dedication!I will definitely be recommending Amy to all of my friends in Chicago!

    • Very knowledgeable about the business, friendly, professional, organized...this girl knows what she's doing. There wasn't a question she couldn't answer. She looks out for you and will fight for you and what you want. Looking to buy? Check her out!

      - Kevin T.
    • We're working with Amy to buy a single family home, and sell our condo. In this real estate market, it's extremely important that you have a great agent, and I'm so glad we found Amy on Yelp.Amy is a go-getter who doesn't take no for an answer. She's persistent when talking with selling agents on our behalf, and makes it a point to follow up with every buyer agent who sets up showings of our condo. She is constantly in touch via phone, email, and gchat. Amy seems to be constantly working! Amy is a direct communicator and doesn't hesitate to ask sellers about problem areas that she finds in homes (water spots, mold, etc). She is knowledgeable about most repair costs and spouts numbers like a true former-actuarial science person. And, she's a tough negotiator!

      - Carolyn G.
    • We worked with Amy on buying our first place. Working with her couldn't have been better. She was extremely prepared and knowledgeable and helped us through the entire process. She helped us each step of the way and provided tons of good advice. Anytime we had a question, she was always available, whether it was a phone call, text message, or IM. She knew how much we should be paying for each property and made sure she got us the best price. After we had finished closing, she was still following up with us to make sure everything was going well.We loved working with Amy as our realtor and will absolutely work with her again! We will be recommending her to anyone in know in need of a realtor.

      - Craig K.
    • I recently attended a Home Buying Workshop that Amy held a sorority convention. She was very informative about the overall process and what to expect as a first home buyer. She shared details about affordability, market values, loans, foreclosures, renting to own and even more. When I do have enough money saved up, I'll be going to Amy to purchase my first home.

      - Kat D.
    • Amy Duong helped me purchase my first home in 2008. She was very professional and knowledgeable. She made sure that I wasn't feeling pressured into purchasing anything I wasn't 100% happy with. She was very determined to help find the perfect place no matter how much showings and work she had to do. She was also not hesitant in giving me her professional advice regarding resale value, safety, etc.She made the process of purchasing my first home a very pleasant experience. It's been two years since I worked with her, but I still call her for questions regarding my property.She's professional and reliable. I would certainly call her when I'm ready to move to a bigger place.

    • We would highly recommend Amy for all your real estate needs. We were looking to list our house in the suburbs for sale or rent. Amy was very knowledgeable and helped us get the house listed right away. The pictures of the property that she took looked great! We had showings scheduled starting the next day and mostly every day after that. Amy kept in contact with us to let us know when there were showings and any other information she had. We received lease applications shortly after and signed a lease within 12 days after the house was listed. Amy helped us throughout the whole lease process and was a very active liaison between us and the tenants. We couldn't be happier with the whole process and we have Amy to thank!

      - Sandy W.
    • Amy is a go getter. She hustles for every client and is very well informed and honest with her opinions. Buying or selling she is diligent and effective. Houses don't stay vacant for very long when she is on call. People say your realtor should be trusted like a member of your family since it is probably going to be the largest financial transactions of your life. Amy is completely all that and a bag of chips. I recommend everyone use her.

      - Justin L.
    • Amy Duong helped my friend sell a beautiful condo I was renting from him at the time. To be honest, considering the price of the place and the fact that the market was on a down turn, I did not think anyone could sell that place. I mean, the assessments alone on that place was ridiculous. Yet, Ms. Duong proved why she's the best. I don't think that place stayed on the market very long before it was snatched up. Thing about Amy Duong is that she'll take on each sale as if it were her own. If she's helping you buy a place, she treats it as if she were buying. That's a real asset to have. We are talking about thousands of dollars in sales or purchase, depending on which you are doing, so you want something who is detail oriented, a go-getter, and knowledgeable in the area. Amy is all those things. She will work her ass off for you, and you can really trust that she is putting all her effort in the business. I would recommend anyone to her, she is one of the most competent people I've ever met and she knows this business inside out!

      - Suzy C.
    • I'm glad I had Amy as a realtor. She's knowledgeable, confident, and genuine. However, the most important quality for me about Amy was that I could trust that she was thinking for me. When I wasn't sure what type of condo I wanted to buy, we looked around first to see what I like. Once I let her know what I prefer, she did a great job in narrowing down our search. I found a few places I really liked but it was really unfortunate that I had some personal issues that delayed me from purchasing a place. But I wanted to post a review for Amy in appreciation for all her help and to recommend her anyone else looking for a place in Chicago.

      - Phillip L.
    • Amy is a really friendly and approachable realtor, and she's been very helpful in answering all of my questions in regards to buying my first home. She pays attention to your likes and dislikes and tailors that to the places she picks out for you to see. She'll work well with you to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible, and she's easy to get a hold of when you need her! I'd definitely send my friends her way if they were in need of a realtor!

      - Jen C.
    • I read Yelp reviews every week, but this is the first review I've written. I parted ways with my first Realtor with another agency after meeting Amy with AAA Realty. There wasn't anything wrong with the first Realtor who was very nice, but I was looking for a negotiator, someone more aggressive maybe, to advocate for me. Although Amy's a busy lady, I always felt prioritized, as if I were her only client. I'm sure she's great with your standard house or condo, but I found her extra helpful with a more complicated short sale multi-unit purchase. Something that was helpful to me in being a first-time home-buyer was that Amy came up with suggestions instead of just asking me what I wanted to do about xyz. Although she has a great sense of urgency, she was very patient with me and my husband.

      - Becky B.
    • Amy is an extremely diligent, proficient, and helpful realtor. She made the process of buying a home for the first time so easy that i have referred her to a few friends who have had similar positive experiences. I highly recommend her as she always has your best interests in mind.

      - Rich L.
    • Amy is the best there is. She helped us sell our condo and buy a home recently and made the whole process really painless for us. Super professional, punctual, responsive, friendly, shrewd, knowledgeable, and a great negotiator - so everything you're looking for in a Realtor. She's also loaded with great references for attorneys, inspectors, contractors, etc - so you're getting access to a whole network of pros. I'd definitely work with her again and recommend her to anyone I can.
