I can not rave enough about Amy and her team! (WARNING - long review but I wanted to give details, not just say she is AMAZING!) I never knew the process of selling a home could be so great. I do know purchasing my home 12 years ago was no where near as good as my experience with Amy. I was recommended to Amy by a very close friend, they warned me "you need to be ready because Amy will sell your house and fast". I knew she had sold their home quickly but mine was different it couldn't be the same. Well I was wrong. Amy came to visit, explained her process and fees to me and was extremely professional. Then she sent her team in and this is when I started to see a real difference. First it was Kathy the stager, (I wish I had her years ago to help me make my house look this good!) Her suggestions were simple, but extremely effective. She sent pictures describing all her suggestions. It was up to me to follow what I wanted and how. Then came Skyler, his photos were amazing. They took what I thought was a good house and made it look incredible. I had better photos of my house then homes 3x the price and size. This is what gets people in the door. If you don't look good online you don't get showings. Between these first two my house couldn't have looked better online. Next came Denise, and she is the details person. She uploads everything and makes sure you have all the info you need during the process. Everything is electronic so you don't have to worry about trips to an office or time for paperwork going back and forth. (Oh and they even have an app that tells you when showings are booked - one warning, when you get showings like I did your phone will never stop buzzing!) We got responses immediately. I was glad we were out of town the first (and only) weekend it was listed because we wouldn't have been able to be home anyway! The offers came quickly. This is where Amy's experience and negotiations were critical. She was honest with me regarding where we stood and she was open and honest with the other agents. This kept the whole process quick and painless. At the end of every call with Amy I told my husband that I loved her! (he wasn't even jealous). We were under contract in less than a week getting above asking price!! Now comes Denise again to help you through the rest of the process to closing. I am fairly anal about things and she was so good with me I was impressed! Oh and I can't leave our Dave our attorney they recommended. When we bought our house we had a very bad experience with our attorney, so I was a little worried here, I had no reason to be. Dave was awesome! He communicated well, he directed just enough that I knew it was my decision but he offered assistance. He also really pushed for the best for us during the inspection and subsequent negotiations.
Overall I wish I had more stars to give to Amy and the whole team. We have already recommended Amy and here team to everyone we know whether they are looking for a realtor or not. And the one person who was looking for a realtor he went to her and she sold his house just as quickly! I don't think you will find a better realtor!

I take references and reviews very seriously. I cannot say enough good things about the way Amy Kite handled the sale of our house. She did exactly what she said she would do. She put our house on the market on Thursday, and by Friday there was one showing after another and offers on the table Saturday, she also saw the value in our home and put it on the market for more than we originally asked for. She was professional, timely, honest, and friendly all at the same time. I wish all of my sales and purchases went this smoothly. I highly recommend the Kite team to anyone.
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for a very efficient, effective and extremely smooth processing of closing on our new home. Its been amazing first time experience and we are superbly happy with the customer focus and commitment provided by your team!!! Awesome!! Appreciate all the timely help provided by your team!!

I had what some might call a difficult closing experience. And I think that if I was working with another company it would not have been possible! Everyone in the office was so nice and was so responsive Sundays, evenings anytime someone was available to answer questions and advise when I was FREAKING out. I am so thankful that I was able to work with this group and I was able to move to my forever home.

We found Amy through a radio ad. We interviewed with 3 other agents in our area, and her presentation was the most professional and informative. Our home was on the market for 7 days when we received our first offer. The deal fell through, but after putting the home back on the market, we received a 2nd offer 5 days later. This one stuck. Denise, who works in Amy's office, on the customer service side, was fantastic. She kept us informed throughout the whole process, answered questions, and was truly a reason why I will refer them in future. If you are new to selling or buying a home, I would definitely recommend their services. They can walk you through step by step to ensure the best deal.

Amy sold my house for above asking price in 1 day! I recently had a change in my job that required me to transfer to Texas. I found out less than 1 month in advance, I was very worried because I had only purchased the home I lived in in Elgin Illinois 3 years before and was not sure if I could cover the amount I owed. I interviewed a few realtors and most told me they would be in touch in a few days. They said they needed time to do a market analysis and determine a value. When Amy came to our house it was a whole different story. She came prepared with a market analysis, comps in the area, and a plan for marketing our house. Amy gave us step by step instructions on how to prepare our house for showings and encouraged us that the process would go well. Amy's team made sure the process not only went well but was actually fun. We were very impressed with the photographer that came out. He was punctual, fast, professional, and the photos were amazing. Amy put together a profile for our home that made me want to buy it all over again! We were pleasantly surprised at the interest Amy was able to generate for us, not only did we have multiple people walk through the first day we had 2 offers the first day! We went from worrying about IF we could sell our house to which offer do we accept...THE FIRST DAY! Not only did we get the asking price, which was more than I expected, we actually got above the asking price. Amy and Denise walked us through the whole process step by step. I am happy to say we have our closing Friday. I would recommend Amy Kite and her team to anyone buying or selling. I am so grateful to Amy for working with us and would hire her again in a heartbeat! I wish I could get her to move to Texas to help me buy my next house. Amy Kite is the way to go. She and her team are professional, prepared, and know the market.
