  • Nick listed and sold my home

      extremely satisfied. Nick went above and beyond the call of duty to help us sell our home. We are amazed at the level of service. He is awesome.

    • Nick listed and sold my home

        Nick and Gina are the best. I highly recommend them to whoever needs to buy or sell the house. They are happy helping you anytime when you need them and are a very responsible team. I found them through Homelight - I needed to sell my home in Chicago and buy a bigger property in Park Ridge. Thank you Homelight!

      • Nick helped me buy a home

          Nick is the best! Patient, knowledgeable and a great resource! He helped work with me for several months and an exhaustive search, ending in a perfect spot for me within my budget. Nick and Gina went above and beyond to help me out. Thanks again Nick & Gina!

        • Nick listed and sold my home

            Nick is an absolute pro! Given his incredible insight and market experience, we were able to devise and execute our strategy seamlessly! We sold our Orland Park house in a matter of hours. We also sold to the right buyers which actually turned out to be the most important part of the entire process. All in all, Nick helped make our selling experience as easy and as effortless as possible! I’d be glad to work with Nick and his team ANY time! Awesome realtors!

          • Nick helped me buy a home

              I cannot express enough how grateful I am of Gina. Both she and Nick of the Pontarelli team made my first time home buying experience easy, convenient and stress free even in this crazy post pandemic market! Gina was always available for questions, quickly responded to text and emails, walked me though every step and detail, and suggested properties that were absolutely on target for my needs. We had a blast driving around the North West Chicagoland area searching for my new home! I will ABSOLUTELY use them again in the future and have already recommended Gina and Nick to others I know who are looking for property. Oh.... Cant forget to mention the delicious cookies Gina and Nick personally delivered as a house warming gift!

            • Nick and I connected, but did no business

                Does not connect well with clients. Condescending in nature, completely rude and unprofessional when we let him know that we went with another agent after the interview process. Definitely would not recommend to work with him if you’re a young parent, very unaware of the needs of children and was extremely upset when I had to take care of my children during our overly long meeting.

              • Gina and Nick were wonderful to work with and made house hunting a fun experience. They truly know the market and how to get things done from start to finish, and never left my side. They helped me get the house I loved, They are the bomb diggity!

                - Pam Stipanich, Downers Grove, Il
              • Nick is simply the BEST. He took charge right after our first meeting and in just 35 days we sold my mother's house. Nick handled everything, from setting the sale price, to setting up the showings and being attentive to our needs and wishes at all times. His knowledge of this business was amazing. If any one wants to sell or buy a house, Nick is the professional that won't let you down. I highly recommend his services and knowledge of the business. I can not thank Nick enough for the job he did. Let Nick do for you what he did for won't regret it. Great Job are the BEST !!!

                - Bill Bruton, Chicago, Il
              • The Pontarelli Team was knowledgeable, assertive, attentive and a pleasure to deal with. They guided me through the sales process with expertise that is unmatched anywhere or at any of the previous properties I have sold. I would recommend them without reservation!!

                - jrblaw2, Chicago, Il
              • Nick Pontarelli is an excellent realtor. He is intelligent, kind and supportive of his clients. He sold my multi-unit building within two months. I highly recommend Nick. He is the best!

                - Chicago, Il
              • Nick was the consummate professional throughout the entire sales process and a delight to work with. He is responsible, diligent and knowledgeable and I always felt my home sale was in Nicks very capable hands.

                - Karen Sclaise, Chicago Il
              • Gina has been so wonderful to us!! We were potentially moving from Los Angeles, CA to the Chicago, IL area due to a job offer. We were choosing between a job in Boston and Chicago. We decided last minute to try and look at houses in Chicago over the weekend and found Gina online and reached out to her. Even though we werent even for sure moving to the area, Gina graciously took on the task of showing us over 20 houses in 2 days! We are first time home buyers, completely lost, and moving across the country, but Gina guided us through the entire process! We decided on Chicago, and Gina went to bat for us for our #1 choice against another buyer and got us our first home! Then she held our hands through the long escrow process, but we felt so at ease knowing Gina and her team (we took her recommendations on a loan officer and a lawyer) were on our side. Gina was patient, sweet and so much fun from start to finish!! Thank you SO much Gina!! Youre the best!!!

                - Megan and Alex, Flossmoor
              • Listed and sold our home quickly and efficiently. We had a buyer back out before inspection causing us to loose our new listing status. Gina found a way to get our home under contract in just two days. She made our first home sale a great experience. I will recommend her to everyone in the Chicagoland area. Very knowledgable and kind.

                - Alejandro Villa, Westchester, Il
              • Nick is the best realtor that I've ever had! He made sure I understood every step of the process... And followed through with every step. You can't ask for anyone better! He really knows the business

                - demofern, Orland Hills, Il
              • Nick was in contact with me for a year before we actually put town home up for sale. He is extremely thorough in his approach, has great feedback and guidance in properly getting the house ready for sale. Nick was always in communication with me throughout each showing and gave me realistic expectations on price of home. Nick helped us sell our first home in less than 2 weeks. Nick understood the emotional connection we had with our home. I highly recommend his personal touch and sincere connection to you and as you look to find your dream home or ready to sell your family home. In sincere gratitude - Ana

                - Ana Cruz, Orland Park, Il
              • Nick was a huge help in selling our home. We contacted him before we were ready to put the house up because we needed to make some improvements beforehand. He was in contact with us the entire time and never made us feel rushed to put the house up. The first time we put the house up we had a contract in 3 weeks, but something went wrong with the buyer and we had to let them out of the contract. Not once did we feel discouraged with Nick. We took the house down in the winter and Nick always kept in contact with us. He suggested we put the house up again in mid March 2019 and the home sold in one day. We closed on the home in May 2019. He still keeps in contact with us as we are looking for a home in Indiana and he has given us great advice as buyers. We definitely would recommend Nick to anyone who wants to sell a home.

                - Lansing, Il
              • We listed our home with Gina, within 3 days had 4 offers. Very responsive to calls and concerns. Made the experience enjoyable. Would use her again in a heartbeat.

                - Shaun Pocious, Steger Il
              • Nick Pontarelli is a excellent realtor. He is knowledgeable responsive and takes every sale from start to finish making sure the process goes smoothly and there are no last minute surprises that may delay the sale. He takes the time to learn the market area of the property he is listing in turn making sure the property is priced to sell. I listed my condo with him and it sold in less then 3 weeks. He has all the qualities needed to help make the sale and purchase a smooth and stress free experience!

                - Anthony De Carlo, Willowbrook, Il
              • We sold our Multi-unit building in Chicago and thanks to Nick our sale went along pretty smooth. Nicks knowledge and expertise sold our home within a week!! Good service and great communication is key!! Thanks again Nick

                - Peechez8277, Chicago Il
              • Gina helped us sell a property that frankly, we didn't think would sell so quickly. She is extremely well-versed in what she does, and is extremely friendly and personable. Gina helped us get the best deal possible and did so in a timely fashion. Gina is also excellent at returning text/phone/email messages, often within the hour, if not immediately. She was a great agent, as she kept us informed throughout the whole process, as well as drew some hard lines, on our behalf, with an extremely stubborn buyer. We feel we got the most out of the process, and we owe that thanks to Gina. We would recommend Gina to friends and family, and we'd love to work with her again ourselves in the future.

                - user021382, Oswego, Il
              • We met Gina and instantly knew we were in good hands. This was our first time buying a home and the entire process was educational and pleasant with Gina. She made herself available to answer all our questions no matter the time of day or evening. If you're looking for someone who is honest, knowledgable, patient, resourceful, and personable, Gina's it. We owe it to her for helping us land our dream home!

                - Diane Diaz, Winfield, Il
              • Working with Nick in purchasing our home was the best decision! He was there for us every step of the way & always available to answer any questions we had. With his knowledge & integrity we knew he had our best interest in mind. We thank you Nick for helping make our journey to being a Homeowner as smooth as possible!!!

                - Lupe F, Chicago Il
              • From start to finish Nick & his team were the consummate PROS!! The sale of our Old home and purchase of our new home were quick & seamless, most likely due to to the marketing expertise and PROPER PRICING Nick suggested. Also, a bonus is his network of recommended trusted professionals which we used to make the process painless. We will be selling a condo in the next few months and yes it will be sold and listed by...... NICK PONTARELLI & Associates!! I suggest you give them a try to!

                - Julio Padilla, Downers Grove, Il
              • Nick & Gina were extremely instrumental with our daughters first-time home buyer experience. From their knowledge of the area to their negotiating skills to recommending a mortgage broker and real estate attorney THEY made the process practically effortless. I highly recommend Nick Pontarelli & Gina Knight to buy your home from.

                - Candy, Downers Grove, Il
              • Selling a home can be stressful. Buying a home can be stressful. Doing both seemed impossible at first, but then we signed with Nick Pontarelli and everything came together. He knows the market well and provided guidance every step of the way. We sold our house in 48 hours and found our new home in just a few weeks. We knew we were in good hands with Nick and his team. I could not recommend anyone else to sell and buy real estate.

                - Noreen Burke, Burr Ridge, Il
              • Nicks expertise in the real estate business is magical! He understands the needs of the seller and the desires of the buyer. As a first time seller, Nicks guidance was spectacular and the process went smoothly from start to finish! It was pleasure to work with Nick!

                - Erin Calle, Chicago Il
              • Nick was up front about every detail needed to get my house on the market. He took care of every step and reassured me that it would be a very easy process. I will recommend Nick to anyone I know who is ready to sell or buy a house.

                - Mike, Frankfort Il
              • Nick knows the real estate market like no other! Hes Always 1 step ahead of everyone else. He has handled several transactions for me and he always comes prepared. Mr Pontarelli does his homework. He is assertive, knowledgeable and you just know he will get the property sold at or very near its value. I give him my Highest recommendation and wouldnt think to call anyone else. I also know I will get an Honest assessment from him. I have complete and total trust in his knowledge, abilities, his work ethic and his loyalty to his clients.

                - James Brown, Hickory Hills, Il
              • Gina and Nick were an absolute pleasure to work with. As a first-time home buyer, they navigated me through the process with such care and compassion, easing my nerves and anxiousness at every step. They were my advocates and cheerleaders only resting until we found the perfect place for me to call home. Their extended team (loan officer and attorney) also made the process approachable and uncomplicated with no question too big or small to ask of them. I look forward to working with the Pontarelli Team again in the future! Thank you Gina and Nick.

                - Robin Thuringer, Downers Grove, Il
              • I couldnt believe how quickly things were taken care of and how fast the closing Took place the most important thing between an agent and the seller or buyer is communication which is the most important aspect of any Business great team hopefully I will be able to work with them in the future with my family and friends God bless

                - Angel Rivera, Sold in Chicago and bought in Plainfield Il
              • I used the Pontarelli Team to purchase my first home. Gina was my main point of contact. They were very patient with me. Im very picky with my choices and we were shopping around for a few months. They stuck with me the entire time and did not try to sell me just any home to get me off their back. Instead they took the time to find me something that met all of my needs.

                - Stephen Viet Ly, Chicago Il
              • My mothers house had been in on the market for almost a year with multiple price droppings. When we decided to change our agent, we interviewed several. They were all professional but Nicks enthusiasm, positive energy and well thought out marketing plan made our choice easy! BEST DECISION EVER!!! House had MULTIPLE showings. In fact in the first 2 weeks we had more showings than we had had in the previous year!! When you are ready to sell your house we cant emphasize enuf that Nick is your best choice!

                - Bobbi, Elmhurst, Il
              • I live in California, and had to sell my brothers house in Illinois. Nick made the process very easy, I did not have to travel back and forth. They were very professional. I have bought and sold 11 houses over my life time and wish I knew Nick back then to help me with them.

                - Larry Slater, Villa Park, Il
              • Gina is absolutely wonderful! Enthusiastic and energetic! A very knowledge resource for the Western Chicago area. She was invaluable in navigating the buying process. I don't know what I'd have done without her. Personality plus!

                - Linda Persina, Wheaton, Il
              • We followed Gina and Nick's advice on preparing our home for sale, pricing & strategy & we received a quality offer within 24 hrs of placing our home on the market!

                - Deb, Oakbrook Terrace, Il
              • Nick does not miss a beat. He explains every detail,every step of the way. When you have a question he is available 24/7. Makes sure u as a seller are never inconvenienced and he has a wealth of knowledge. Nick is also very resourceful and works with, and can refer other professionals you may need during the process. Our experience with Nick was amazing and I would never use another realtor.

                - Mario and Laura, Woodridge, Il
              • Nick was very honest in the whole process to put the house on the market until the right buyer had the complete resources to purchase the house. Nick will go the extra effort to make the experience as easy for the seller and maximize the monetary value. Needless to say, I recommend The Pontarelli Team real estate services to everybody.

                - Chicago Il
              • Nick and Gina were absolutely excellent to work with! I needed to sell my house in Illinois quick and was located out of state. Nick and Gina provided quick, honest feedback and could not have been more helpful - both helping to prepare my home for sale and the sale process. Got multiple offers over asking within 48 hours of listing! Nick and Gina helped to handle all asks from the buyers and we closed without an issue. Id recommend Nick and Gina to anyone buying or selling in the greater Chicagoland area, they made this process infinitely easier than I anticipated!

                - Keith Campbell, Glendale Heights, Il
              • Nick and Gina are great to work with! We used them two years ago to sell rental property, and engaged them again this year to sell our primary Illinois residence. Nick and Gina are helpful, knowledgeable, resourceful and professional. They made our relocation project a huge success!
