Team reviews

My experience with this agency has so far been anything but positive. I first contacted this realty agency via phone about a rental and was told that the representative in charge of the rental would get back to me immediately. 24 hours went by so I called again around 11am the next morning. Another girl assured me that the apartment was still available and someone would contact me for sure by the end of the day. No one called, so I called AGAIN around 5:30. An older lady answered this time and said that the apartment has been rented out that day, which was probably why no one had contacted me. She seemed shocked that no one had contacted me with an update, and said that a representative would call me the next day to see if there was anything they could do. A couple hours later an agent named Meredith called me and we had a very pleasant conversation. When she found out I had also been approved for an FHA loan but couldn't find FHA approved condos in my price range, she took down all my specifications and said that she would personally find properties (both rental and for purchase) that weekend and e-mail them to be on Monday. She called me Monday but I missed the call, so I called back and left a voicemail early Monday morning. Jump forward to Wednesday night (tonight) when I called her back again to find out what was going on, as she had not returned my call or e-mailed me the promised list of properties. Again, I was met with shock that no one had contacted me. Her explanation was first that she had lost her notebook at work (really?), and second she had given my specifications to a another staff member who was supposed to gather results for me during the weekend. The agent said that the staff member was pregnant so something may have happened with her pregnancy. I was promised AGAIN that she would "personally" take care of putting together a list of condos for me that are FHA approved in my price range, but I no longer wish to use them to rent or purchase a home. It makes me wonder if only people who are looking to buy really expensive homes are treated with professionalism.

I cannot say enough good things about the Kite team. Their professionalism helped immensely during the whole sales process. Above all, I appreciate their attention to detail and quick turn around time in resolving issues. I sold my house so I could take a job outside of the U.S. and travel more, which is exactly what I am doing. Thanks again Kite team!

Sold a Condo home in 2015 in Palatine, IL.

Amy and her team are simply amazing. There are no other words , except amazing. From the moment you meet her to the closing, just fantastic. Unfortunately we were working with difficult buyers, however , Amy and her team handled everything perfectly. If you are selling , call Amy, I was not a short sale, fire sale, we just wanted to sell and that is exactly what Amy did, sold our property.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $300K in Lombard, IL.

Amy Kite and her team are extremely knowledgeable and professional. Amy came to our home and gave us great feedback and was able to sell our home in 4 days. We sold for more than our asking price. The interesting thing was that we had spoken with two other realtors and they did not want to list our home at the price Amy was ready to list at. She knew the area and the worth of our home. We worked with Denise for most of the process and she was an absolute delight. She knew exactly how to handle unique situations that came up just before closing and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable with the process. I highly recommend the Amy Kite team. Great people and a great experience!!!

Sold a home in 2015.

Amy and her team were top notch. She sold our condo quickly, in the middle of the winter, and with other units for sale in the building. We team was friendly and easy to work with. They made us feel like we were their only client.

After hearing about Amy via the radio advertisements, I was a bit skeptical but that changed quite quickly from the moment I first met the team. Within 24 hours of calling, Amy visited my home and gave an honest assessment. She even made some suggestions to maximize it's potential asking price. Homes in my area often sit for > 100 days, and townhouses (which is what I had) often sit for longer. The team had open houses and got an offer on the home with 45 days, plus it was better than even I had anticipated. Amy then negotiated on my behalf and was able to really bring home an offer that exceeded me and my wife's expectations. Not only were we able to sell our home for a profit (we were the first individuals to sell their home for more than what was paid in our development), but they even handled some of the annoying details like getting the village inspection done. I wholeheartedly recommend the team at Keller-Williams and can see why Amy Kite and her team (kudos to Denise) are year over year their top producers. I'll be doing all my real estate business with them in the foreseeable future.

Sold a home in 2015 in Lily Cache, Plainfield, IL 60544.

Amy and her team are rock stars! Circumstances dictated that we had to buy a new property before putting our original home up for sale, putting us in a precarious financial position if our home did not sell quickly. Despite holidays and brutal weather, we had a buyer within a month, allowing us to transition perfectly from one home to the next -- not even a single extra mortgage payment on our original home. What's more -- Amy's estimated sales price was spot on. There was no need for price reduction and our buyer's offer was well in line with Amy's estimate. Her team was a well-oiled machine - professional, diligent, and efficient. I would recommend Amy & team in a heartbeat!
