Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $400K in Glen Ellyn, IL.
I've worked w/ Tom over the past 10yrs on a both personal home and investment property purchases & sales. He's professional, NOT pushy, and overall a really nice guy. Tom goes the extra mile to both explain the process AND takes lead in the project management of the entire process by making sure Agents, Lawyers, Loan Officers, & Title Companies are all talking to each other and understand the closing plan.
I highly recommend Tom Gaikowski as a reputable, knowledgable, and well informed Realtor. Being relocated to an area in which I did not know anyone, Tom welcomed me to the community and made me feel comfortable in my new city. He helped me learn Naperville and surounding areas. He was patient and understanding of my needs to be completely satisfied with my new home purchase. He was familiar with neighborhoods, retail and community services and recommended areas that fit my lifestyle and close proximity to work.
He also assisted with referrals when I needed service providers or repair technicians. All of which provided the same high quality service as Tom.
Working with Tom was always a pleasurable experience. I look forward to working with Tom Gaikowski when I sell my home!

We have worked with Tom for all of our real estate needs over the past 9 years. We have experience in both buying and selling properties with him. We continue to be impressed with his exceptional knowledge of the area and his attention to detail. We appreciate how well he has been able to listen to our needs and successfully find exactly what we're looking for. As a resident of the western suburbs for over 30 years, Tom uniquely understands the differences within each community. This awareness helped us when looking for our current home.
In addition our real estate needs, Tom has given us excellent advice regarding various homeowner needs. We have greatly benefitted from his recommendations for painters, contractors, carpet cleaners, and window/roofing companies. We have also sought Tom's expertise regarding our rental properties. He continues to be our greatest asset in every aspect of our real estate portfolio.
We offer Tom our highest recommendation and would strongly encourage anyone to contact him right away. You won't find a better realtor!

What can I say? Tom Gaikowski sold our home in three months, for a fair price, at the bottom of the worst real estate market in history, and we didn't even go on the market until July 8 or so. This after we had been on the market with other brokers in each of the prior two years. I think a lot of brokers just try to list as many houses as they can, and hope something sells. In contrast, Tom actively marketed our house, with public open houses, realtor open houses, and realtor mailings, among other things. Tom kept an eye on the house (we went on the market after we moved), and followed up on any problems he found. He also did what he said he was going to do, when he said he was going to do it, for anything that needed doing to sell the house. Finally, he was excellent at working out the negotiations and handling the inevitable hiccups and gotchas that came up. If you just want to list your house, you can use anybody, but if you want to sell your house, you really need to call Tom Gaikowski.
We had such a great experience with Tom. He really listened to what we were looking for and showed us a lot of different options that met our criteria. He is super knowledgable about Naperville and had an answer for all our questions. He was a joy to work with and we would highly recommend him!

Tom was wonderful to work with in buying our first house in details. He is very detail oriented and easy to be reached. He always answered our questions in a timely manner and stayed on top of us to close on our house in 45 days during the holiday season.

Tom Gaikowski got results! He suggested things we never would have thought of on our own that helped get many showings and a quick contract. Tom gave us the feeling that he was truly working strictly for us, representing what was completely in our best interests. I would list with him and buy from him again. A real Pro - no surprise he's a leader in his industry.
