"Sheila is amazing! We were first-time home buyers and had no idea what we were doing. She walked us through the entire process and with her help we found a home--not just a house. Sheila is a top-notch negotiator and we got way more out of our deal than I ever expected. She has a wonderful way of being a tough negotiator and so friendly and sweet at the same time. I guarantee you will not be sorry if you go with Sheila for buying or selling."

"Sheila Gentile has the expertise that begins with her knowledge of the market, expert pricing, enthusiastic marketing techniques, creative staging, personable approach, accessibility, & superb negotiating skills that result in what every seller desires....the best price possible with the least amount of issues. As an out of town owner, sheila was most professional & had the integrity that warranted trust. "

"In this challenging time of selling homes, Sheila is a stand-out star. Her focused, practical marketing provided excellent results. From excellent counsel on current market dynamics to listing our Riverside home to guiding us through the offer(s) - 5 weeks, and then a timely close. This was the 5th home we have sold over our lives and Sheila is as good as they come in this field. Highly, highly recommend Sheila."

  -Steve W. (via Yelp), Client

"We found Sheila on Yelp to sell our town home in IL. Sheila quickly helped identify problem areas in the house. Yes she is very particular, and exactly what's needed in this market. Once the property was in pristine condition; the key to selling it was her detailed market analysis hence recommendation for appropriate pricing and aggressive marketing. She is thorough in her work, her communication (including email, phone, texting etc.) and management of the entire process. We received an offer within 7 days and closed recently. By the way, we have never met Sheila in person and reside on the other side of the country! Highly recommended..."
