"Beth is a terrific real estate agent. She is very dedicated to helping her clients and very responsive to requests. Beth and her partner, Julie, made sure that someone was always available on a timely basis to go to showings, handle questions, closing matters. etc. My experience purchasing a condo was the best with Beth as my agent." - Karen N. Long
"Excellent, Patient, Amazing, too many good things to say to fit in! She made buying a house a dream come true! Would recommend anytime anywhere!" - Jen Wilson-Fojo
"Beth helped my husband and I find a lot where we could tear down and build our own home. Having remodeled her own vintage home, Beth was a wealth of information on what was doable and who exactly we could talk to if she did not have the answer. She was available for showings on short notice and kept us up-to-date on the inventory that was coming on the market. We will be using her to sell our current home once we are ready to move - and I KNOW that I will be writing another positive review from the seller's perspective!" - Julie
"Beth, helped us with every phase of our search to closing in a very professional and skillful manner. I have worked with many agents and you cannot do better than Beth Gomez, she is a class act." - Michael
"We wanted someone who had knowledge of both Chicago and the Oak Park/River Forest area and Beth had the right experience and knowledge for that large territory.
We contacted Beth after we found a lovely home during our usual Sunday routine of visiting open houses. We felt like we found a gem but we were unsure if we were fooling ourselves. We really needed someone to help us evaluate the house and the market. We were very familiar with Chicago (having lived there for the past decade) but didn't know the River Forest area.
Beth helped us evaluate our top choice by reaching out to her contacts to get an estimate on the amount of upgrades and renovation performed on the house. This helped us arrive at a fair price to offer the sellers. Beth also worked within our short time frame by quickly setting up a dozen listings in one day so that we could quickly get a better appreciation of the Oak Park/River Forest real estate market.
Throughout the home-buying process, we valued Beth's professionalism balanced with her warmth and her understanding of our needs. She provided many recommendations for home inspection, painting, masonry and other services we needed to evaluate, purchase and improve our home.
Buying a home can be stressful, particularly as we continue to recover from the real estate bubble. Beth never rushed or pressured us to make haste decisions and always took the time to explain to us anything in the process we didn't understand. She truly was our advocate and we'd highly recommend her services." - Liz and Roger Stetson
"I believe your realtor has to be an extension of the home you're selling. Beth was. She's polished, elegant and has this eclectic artistic style. She has a subtle, authentic manner when she shows a house that helps buyers understand why the people who lived here loved it. She knows which buyer is a fit. Everything went like clockwork." - Nancy Gershman
SCHOOLS / FAMILY:
"We met Beth at an Open House and just knew she was the right fit for us -- she was very warm, professional and knowledgeable right from the start. As a young family looking to raise our son in the city, we appreciated the fact that Beth and her husband are raising their children in the city as well. She is very educated when it comes to schools and neighborhoods and provided a lot of useful information throughout the process -- including school open houses and community groups -- that were important inputs into our home buying decision. We felt heard throughout the process and sound in our decision thanks to her -- not only did we find a home, but we also found a great neighbor and friend in Beth."
"We had been shopping houses online for some time, but ended up buying a bank-owned property that we would have never seen without Beth's recommendation. She helped us navigate the home-buying process, which can often be difficult with a bank-owned property. We were impressed by Beth's professionalism throughout as well as her patience when we came to her with questions and concerns -- which was often. And, when the deal nearly fell through because of the bank's unwillingness to negotiate, Beth worked with the selling agent to find a resolution. This is a testament to Beth's commitment to her clients -- she is a true professional."
"The home buying process can often be a bumpy one, but Beth helped smooth out the rough spots during our experience. She provided valuable information on neighborhoods and schools and, when it came down to the final two, a weighted scorecard to help us think through our decision. When we were having second thoughts after putting in an offer, she showed us two more properties to put our minds at ease. There were several hiccups during inspections and as well as our close and Beth was a true professional acting in our best interest. Her kindness and warmth are a bonus to her knowledge and professionalism -- I would recommend Beth to anyone buying or selling a home in Chicago." - Tari Haro
"We needed more space and wanted to take advantage of the current buyer's market. We weren't looking for a bank owned property, but we found one we wanted to buy and couldn't have navigated the process without Beth.
Dealing with the bank (seller) was complicated and frustrating. Multiple entities were involved on the seller's side and it was nearly impossible to get a response from the seller's realtor or attorney.
Beth explained the challenges up front and set our expectations. She set us up a with an attorney who is a short sale specialist, she was persistent and didn't get flustered. She got it done and we got a great deal!" -Anne Koss

"Beth Gomez listened and focused my search on exactly what I wanted very early in the process. All along she was always asking the right questions, and steering me to great properties. Then in the middle of the process I changed my mind about what I wanted and she was right there with me! I went from looking at single family homes, to finding the coolest loft space I would have never considered in the beginning! Thanks Beth for taking me thru an exciting transition!" - K. Thoma
"What sold me on Beth was her in-depth knowledge about real estate and the many statistics she provided to backup her facts. Not only did she make sure I found a place that was a great place to live, but was also a great investment. I always knew that she was looking out for what was in my best interest and not her own. It took me 8 months to find my perfect place but Beth wouldn't let me settle for less than perfect". - Caryl Ewing
"After living in a small apartment for over two years, my boyfriend and I decided it was time to buy our first house. Beth was an extremely efficient agent and she took time to review our needs, locate properties that met our requirements and worked with us at our convenience. Beth made us feel like our purchase was the only sale she was working on! Beth took time to explain the negotiations, and made the contract and closing process smooth despite a difficult market.
We have been living in our home for just over 3 months and are in 7th heaven. The joys of owning a house! We are very grateful we had the ability to purchase our first home, and are thankful to Beth for making our first home-buying experience as easy as possible". - Jessica Papp
“A valuable part of working with Beth was the sense that she "got" what we were looking for. We never felt like she was simply showing us places to buy -- we always felt that she was genuinely interested in finding a home that was perfect for us. She asked great questions of the sellers, and her feedback on the properties we looked at were honest and insightful.” – Amanda Lao
"The biggest challenge that we faced was selling our home before looking for a new one. I think we had something like 200 competitive condo listings. Beth was very honest about the price we should list the condo at and what we needed to do to have a chance at selling. The condo needed to be perfect to have a chance with the competitive market conditions. Beth brought in a stager which I think was one of the key reasons we sold. Our home had never looked so good - we actually loved the stager so much that we are using him in our new home.
Beth really is a pleasure to work with! Knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and driven." - Andrew Browder
