Specialization
I specialize in representing clients in the purchase and sale of single-family residences and income property within (but not limited to) the towns of Glen Ellyn, Lombard, Wheaton, Winfield, West Chicago, Villa Park, Naperville, Downers Grove, and Glendale Heights. I keep current of all transactions in these areas, and I am very knowledgeable with the local schools.

Resume
Garry Vallo has been selling real estate in the Chicagoland area for over 24 years. He prides himself in maintaining close contact with his clients to ensure that they are continually updated on their progress. His years of experience enables him to handle the intricacies of buying or selling a home smoothly and efficiently. Many of these tasks are done without ever having to trouble the other party.

Garry also believes in educating his clients throughout the entire process. He may complete a large portion of the selling or buying process on his own, but keeps his clients informed of the tasks that have been completed and why they were handled as they were. He makes suggestions to his clients based on his many years of knowledge, but will never forget he works for YOU!

      Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Wheaton, IL.
      Garry has always been our real estate agent. He has helped us buy our first home, then sell it. Buy our second home and sell it etc. We have been buying and selling with Garry for over 30 years. He is patient. (The third home we bought, he may have shown us 50+ before we decided). He is responsive. When we sold homes he always got back to us immediately after a showing with the prospective buyers feed back. He knows the area and then some. Garry has always been able to advise us about an area. Knowing about schools, taxes, future developments and such. Garry knows how to price a home and sell it. He will be honest wit you if you think your price is too high. He gives comps for the houses in the area that have sold and objectively gives you a selling price. This was especially important during the last sale since the housing market had plummeted, nothing was worth what it was previously. If he tells you to paint your home beige...just do it. As I said he knows how to sell a home. Garry has also sold my son his first home. He helped him with financing and was able to tell him the pluses and minuses of owning his own home. The home my son bought is in a very rural area and Garry still was able to tell him about his area. Garry also sold my father-in-law's home. He managed to get it sold after 4 days on the market. This home was also outside his core area and still he was successful!

      I can not say enough about Garry. We were very fortunate to find him 30 years ago.

      Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $575K in Glen Ellyn, IL.
      Garry is the ultimate professional. I bought my first house from him 20 years ago and he has maintained contact throughout that entire time. Even if we were just mildly curious about a particular property, Garry was not only happy to show it to us, but he also obtained background info on it as well. When it was finally time to sell our house in 2013, Garry was there to handle everything. From getting the sale price right, to helping us with all the financial and legal details, Garry made the process smooth and effortless. We both sold our home and bought a new one with Garry at the helm. If you're looking for someone to help you buy or sell, Garry's your man.  MoreLess

      Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Elmhurst, IL.
      Here is the deal on Garry. He calls it like he sees it and is a no BS straight shooter. He helped us buy our first home this past July 2013 and came recommended by several trusted co-workers. Incredibly knowledgable, efficient, timely, and responsive. It was clear early on in our house search he had our best interests in mind. He went above and beyond for us and you should expect the same. For example, right before we were going to close the area we bought in had a torrential rainstorm and we happened to be out of state. I saw on the news a reporter, literally on my future street with water up to people's door handles, stating my city had declared a state of emergency. Needless to say I was concerned. So Garry, in World Class fashion, drove to my future house and took pictures of the area to assure us our first new home was ok. One example of many - you would be making a mistake not to use him it.  MoreLess
