Gary was very helpful in finding me an affordable house that fulfilled my wish-list. I relocated to Illinois for my job, was completely ignorant of the area, and was also a first time home buyer. I wanted a house with a large family room (to fit furniture I already owned), a certain lay-out of bedrooms and bathrooms, near a big shopping area with a Kohl's store but in a good subdivision with desired schools. It had to have lower taxes to keep the payments within my pre-approval limit. It needed to be a newer house in move-in condition. And the house also had to be an easy commute to my job. Gary was able to find several houses that were suitable, and I love my new home! It even has a whirlpool tub and lake access (not on my list but definitely enjoyed).
During the preparation for closing there were several issues that had to be resolved, with much interaction between myself, the seller, the bank, inspectors, etc. and Gary was very helpful during this tedious process.

When Gary first saw our house he new it was a good solid brick home. You really don't see good construction like this anymore. He priced it right. The house was on a busy street so it was a challenge for us and Gary. Anytime I ever had a question or concern Gary was on top of things. Great negotiator and respected our opinions. I would definitely use Gary again in the future with selling another property.

Gary was great! So easy to work with and not your typical pushy agent. He was VERY knowledgeable about the property and very helpful with tips on what to do before we put the property on the market. He was full service from start to finish!!
07/20/2016 - rbearmom, Sold a Condo home in 2016 for approximately $100K in Wheeling, IL.
Not only was Gary knowledgeable about every property we saw, but he only showed us properties that fit my needs, was respectful of my decisions, timeline, viewing hours, and expectations, and was easy to reach and communicate with. Although I worked with Gary for only a few months, within that time frame he both suggested and showed more properties than my previous realtor had in twice that amount of time. He answered all of our questions and sought out answers from Sellers when he did not immediately have the information and he was always factual, which ultimately allowed us to make the decision of purchasing without felling as if a property was being pushed on to us in order to make a sale. I wish I had come to Gary earlier and will seek out his services in the future.

Gary is a great partner throughout the process. Extremely responsive, great network of resources for legal and loan needs as well as ad hoc services for repairs, etc. Gary has great tools for managing showings of your home and capturing feedback from prospective buyers. Not afraid of pricing your home independent of the comparable data. He uses the data as a guideline instead of relying on it entirely when providing guidance. We were very pleased working with him!

Gary knows the Lake County area extremely well. His knowledge of the area was essential in selling my home quickly and for the price range I was looking for. I would highly recommend him if you are looking to buy or sell in the area. He assisted in the municipal inspections and made sure we closed without any delays. Great job!!!

Gary was great to work with! He is very patient and extremely helpful. I did not have an easy route to my first home buying process. I had my first deal fall through for things outside of my control. We went back to the drawing board and found an even better house. It also came along with some complications but Gary was in it every step of the way doing all he could do on his end to keep things moving. I would highly recommend working with Gary.

01/09/2016 - YelenaMay, Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $450K in Lake Zurich, IL.
Gary was the best! We spent about a year looking at place after place with him. He never made us feel pressured. He never tried to sell us on a place. He even pointed out the faults with places. He wanted to make sure we were 100% happy, and he never pushed us to settle for something less than what we were happy with. In the end, he wanted to negotiate a better deal for us which we probably would've gotten, but we didn't want to risk it! We found the place we loved with Gary, and we could'ntve dealt with a better agent or honestly a better person than Gary. He's not just selling a house. He actually cares about finding the perfect home for you and your happiness!

Having Gary Aver as my agent was a pleasure from beginning to end. When involved in the buying/selling process can be very stressful, especially as first time home buyers/sellers. His reassuring words and knowledge was what my family needed in this important time in our lives. He always looked out for my best interests even when my decision making was not the best. Gary is a top agent in my opinion and I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to have a smooth and worry free buying or selling experience.

Gary is always available to walk with you through the process of buying your home. He really knows the real state business in and out. He sold my house in 2009 in just few weeks. In June of 2015 I bought the town house in few weeks as well. Buying a small place was a new field for me and Gary helped me understand the difference. He also was very honest to point out the different look at the value of smaller places. Gary is truly excellent real state agent. The process of selling and buying was very calm and that's so important!

In these times when people complain about poor service, I feel an individual should be recognized and commended when they give over and above what they are expected to do.

Because of his expertise, he helped expedite the transaction and it ended in a very pleasant experience!

07/07/2015 - olga usa, Bought a Condo home in 2015 in Arlington Heights, IL.
Gary is an excellent real estate agent. We had to sell my moms home because of her health. Gary discussed pricing with us and we all felt very comfortable with the selling price. It was in need of updating and another agent had recommended we price it a lot lower. The house had multiple offers within 2 days. Gary handled all the paperwork very promptly and professorially. I live out of state so he made sure I had all the necessary paperwork to sign and get back before closing. My mom had left some personal items in the house and he was kind enough to send those to her. I would definitely recommend Gary. His knowledge of real estate and the market is excellent.
07/06/2015 - rtmaksyn Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $200K in Wheeling, IL.

Gary Aver has a very solid knowledge of the surrounding market and the expertise to price your home to get top dollar with minimal market time.
As anyone knows who has sold a property putting the correct asking price is critical to your success in selling. This along with a strong team that will work to get the sale done puts him at a level about the competition.

Gary is awesome! He has made my home buying process very easy, painless, and affordable. Gary answers all questions very thoroughly, intelligently, and eloquently, and constantly keeps you in the loop. I had to switch to a different property in the middle of my purchase, which caused more work and more hassle for Gary, but he just smiled and said: "Leo, I'm here for you, and will always work with your best interest in mind".
Gary made the entire home buying process very easy and painless. I've recommended a number of friends to to him, and would recommend that you check him out as well. Gary is the best Mortgage Broker I have ever dealt with. Thanks, Gary!
