if you are looking for a professional real estate Broker, I highly recommend Rachelle King. From our first meeting which took place at a property showing, I loved Rachelle's enthusiasm, communication skills, and expert advice.I came to Chicago From New York to do my clinical rotations, I didn't have the best credit score, it was a huge challenge to find a rental place in downtown Chicago. Rachelle king was extremely patient and responsive. she worked with me tirelessly to track down the perfect place and meticulously handled all the details to make it happen. I couldn't be more pleased with my apartment, location and the amenities. I found Rachelle to be a delightful blend of professionalism and personality and highly recommend her as someone who will be there as your personal guide to a great real estate transaction.
Renee with Gold Coast Realty was extremely helpful.  I was relocating from Pittsburgh to Chicago and Renee was extremely helpful in assisting me.  She was extremely fast to responding to emails and answered every question that I had.  She also reached out to me on multiple occasions to help understand exactly what I was looking for.  She scheduled a whole day of viewings for me while I was in the city and took me to each location.  Gold Coast Realty and Renee are highly recommended
The BEST realtor in Chicago - Christopher Nagy!! I moved to Chicago recently and needed assistance with finding what I felt was my 'dream' location. I went through a lot of brokers and Chris was the ONLY one who saw my vision and delivered EVERY thing that I wanted. Some people say don't make a list because you should be flexible with the outcomes. I made my list and Chris delivered!! He's patient, understanding, and sees you through the whole process. If you ever need a relocation guru / realty expert / just all-round responsive, professional, call Chris!!
A few months ago, I started looking for an apartment to rent, and I applied for more information for a particular unit. Thankfully, I was matched with Jenn Hedrick! After looking at about 5 or so places with Jenn, I changed my mind and decided that I wanted to purchase a condo, which I had never done before. Besides being extremely responsive, knowledgeable, and all the other things you would want in an agent (for renting or buying), Jenn was unbelievable at helping me through the experience of buying for the first time.

If you've never bought before, I can tell you that there are so many questions you'll have, and sometimes you might feel dumb for not knowing more. Never once did I feel stupid asking Jenn a question. She was able to help me throughout the whole process, patiently answering my questions. She even went above and beyond her duties by helping me salvage a piece of furniture in the alley and carrying it up a few flights of stairs! I would give Jenn 10 stars if Yelp would let me. If you're looking for an agent for either renting or buying (I'm sure she'd be great with selling too), stop looking and call Jenn! You won't regret it.
When my landlord told me he is selling and gave me 6 weeks notice during my busiest time of the year, I panicked.  Thank goodness I gathered myself and called Gold Coast!  Joey Haras helped me find the perfect apartment. My picky, picky ways did not seem to bother him ;)  Perfect location, size and I have my beloved outdoor space.  Thanks, Joey, for making the process easy and...fun.  Your NEW friend, Beth.
Kate Hoffman from Gold Coast Realty is awesome....she helped us find our place and was amazing to work with. We felt like she really went the extra mile for us and we are enormously appreciative.
After many failed attempts to find an apartment ourselves in this large and overwhelming city, my boyfriend and I were told to check out Gold Coast Realty which led us to Chelsea Beach. Within the first five minutes of speaking with her we knew she was a perfect fit for us. Not only was she very thorough in her search, she also took the time to listen and understand what it was we wanted to have in our new home. With chelsea we did not feel pressured or a burden at all, and if the unit was not perfect for us she found 10 more to look at right away. I speak for the both of us when I say we were very lucky to find someone as persistent and knowledgable as Chelsea. We love our new home and would recommend her to any one. She always had a smile on her face and was passionate about making her clients happy. I will use her from now on.
Matt Doughty did an outstanding job getting last minute appointments scheduled for us on the Sunday of Super Bowl. With his help we found our dream apartment.
Kim was great to work with! Very accommodating and willing to work whenever I had free time. She helped my boyfriend and I find our perfect new home! She kept her eye out to make sure we were in one of the buildings we loved and made sure to get the perfect price too!
We saw a condo listing for sale or rent (which ever came first) in a building we were interested in for a second home. Kim Evetts was extremely persistent in securing the rent option for us once no purchase contract presented itself. She was very professional and thorough. Thank you Kim.
Chelsea Beach is the best.  She was outstanding to work with from the very first property she showed me.  Chelsea has excellent taste and is a pleasure to work with on what can sometimes be a stressful process.  Her knowledgeable about the market and the city is second to none.  I highly recommend working with Chelsea!
Renee, was outstanding and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a place in the city. She went above and beyond to work with my list of requirements and budget. She worked with my crazy work hours to schedule showing and made the entire moving process less stressful. My apartment is amazing, the location is perfect and it's all thanks to Renee's hard-work and patience.
Christina Riordan of Gold Coast Realty helped me find the place I'm in now, which has everything I needed. She's super knowledgeable and great at helping you take care of all the less fun aspects of looking for a new place. I highly recommend Christina and would gladly work with her again!
Really great experience working with Ryan Hardy looking for a new place. Recommend him to anybody in the market buying, selling, or renting.
Kate Hoffman spent the better part of a weekend with my partner and me. She arranged for us to see fourteen apartments in two days, and in the process gave us a pretty extensive tour of the North Side of Chicago. She had a great sense of what we were looking for. She was organized and professional, and was extremely patient when we were feeling indecisive. I couldn't recommend her more highly!
My girlfriend and I worked with Justin Penn on finding a one bedroom place in River North. Justin was nice enough to took time out of his day to show us multiple apartments and buildings on a Saturday. We originally found an apartment we liked, but we ended up being too late on getting in an application. Having our heart set on the building, Justin found another listing that opened up the next morning, got us an appointment before 8 other showings the next day, and we were able to get the apartment because of him.

We truly appreciated his hard work and dedication to us as a client and finding us a place that we loved! We will definitely come back to Justin and Gold Coast Realty the next time we need a place.
I had the pleasure of recently working with Kate Hoffman, as my broker for a new place. Gold Coast Realty really lives up to their reputation between the website and this agent. I had the best experience and will definitely stay in touch for future needs! Thanks, Nikki
I had an incredible experience working with Kristina Galluzzo with GC Realty. She was responsive, genuine, and understanding if we were not interested in certain things that prevented us from moving forward with a place. I would highly recommend Gold Coast Realty, but more specifically -Kristina, she was a pleasure to work with!
I worked with Justin Penn at Gold Coast Realty, and he did a really great job helping me through the process of finding and renting a one-bedroom condo in the Gold Coast area. Because I was moving from the East coast, I had only two days to find an apartment - and I was feeling the pressure! Justin's laid-back attitude put me at ease, and he was very communicative throughout the process. Thanks Justin and Gold Coast Realty!
I was about to enter into a very hectic work season, but needed to make a move before it began. I did quite a bit of ground work online, so I was clear on what I was looking for and my desired location. During one of my late-night surfing sessions, I submitted an inquiry for one of the listings and within 2 hours, Rachelle King responded. After only one email exchange, Rachelle responded with EIGHTY listings that were equally appealing! After narrowing down the options, within days, Rachelle set up an appointment to see 5 units. All five were INCREDIBLE!! I am typically a very decisive person, but I could, honestly, see myself living in any one of the five she showed me. I had a work obligation that took me out of town for four days, but the very next day after my return, I signed my lease!

Rachelle knows the area very well, was familiar with the buildings and their realtors, and she was a delight to work with. There was not one minute wasted. I love my place and for once, the search process was a breeze! I highly recommend her!
We were introduced to one of Gold Coast Realty's brokers, Kate Hoffman, over the weekend through a old colleague. We had come to Chicago in hopes to find a new home for our summer relocation or at least get an idea of the areas to look at… the first broker we met from another company was awful and a huge let down. He didn't seem to know much about the area and showed us places very different than the criteria we were looking for. Kate, however, was great! She was quick, organized and very familiar with all the neighborhoods we looked in. She was able to help us narrow down the areas that seemed to fit us best and although we had to leave that same day, we will be back to find a place using Kate. Thanks for the attentiveness and professionalism.
We recently worked with Susan Bland to locate an apartment in Streeterville. Over the course of 3 days she lined up showings in every building and unit we wanted to see and by the end of 5 days we had signed a lease on a place we can't wait to move into. She was extremely responsive, willing to meet with us on short notice, patient and not at all pushy, and set up extremely efficient blocks of showings that worked around our work schedules. We had a great experience working with her and highly recommend.
I loved the site and the flexibility of options. I felt like the prices and photos were in line with expectations. I also met Justin and Susan and in one day we found a spot in one day. A big reason is because they were super responsive to everything.
I recently started working with agent Kate Hoffman from Gold Coast Realty. My friend has been using her for years and referred me over. Although I am just looking to rent this spring at the moment, Kate was very professional and willing to help me out. I'm very excited to find a new place and appreciate her advice. I will definitely be using her again.
We worked with Kate Hoffman last year while our oldest daughter was relocating to Chicago for Grad School. It was a quick process but Kate was able to get Colleen everything she needed to be close to school and in a great building. We just contacted her again as we now have another child moving to the city and have decided to buy something downtown! It was such a compliment that she remembered exactly who we were and has agreed to be our realtor again! We wanted to say thank you to Gold Coast Realty for having such a friendly and professional team.
We worked with Susan Bland and Justin Penn with Gold Coast Realty, and they provided the best experience for us. They took the time to learn about us, in addition to asking the right questions when we went to visit properties. They both go truly above and beyond when it comes to finding a new home for their client. They are so quick to respond to any questions, and provided us with so much background knowledge on the many areas of Chicago to choose from. Would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new home!
My roommate and I had Ayushi Kukreja show us a few places around the lake view area in Chicago and helped us eventually sign an apartment. She was incredibly professional throughout the process, responded extremely quickly to emails and texts, and did an outstanding job helping us to sign in a timely manner. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for apartments in the Chicago area.
My friend and I searched for apartments for about a month on our own before we enlisted the services of several different real estate agents. In fact, we used 5 and out of all of those the person we loved working with the most was Ayushi Kukreja. She was diligent with the properties we told her we loved and called us whenever we told her we liked an apartment to set up a showing time. She was always responsive and we felt we could reach out to her at all hours knowing we would get a response. Finding an apartment for a July 1st move in date is a bit of a beast, and she helped us find an apartment that we loved for a price range we could afford in the area we truly wanted to be in. Not only that, but she was a joy to work with and we both felt that our search was in good hands. Seriously though - Ayushi is AWESOME. Definitely recommend working with her in the future!! Great experience with Gold Coast Realty!
I had the pleasure of working recently with Rachelle King at Gold Coast Realty and had a great experience from start to finish. She regularly sent me properties and checked-in for the first couple of weeks of my search, and she was really able to come through in a pinch at the last minute when I flew to Chicago to see some apartments that just made it on the market. In about 48 hours she arranged all of the showings I'd requested and more. After settling on a unit, she was more than helpful facilitating the leasing process until the entire process was finished. Would certainly do business with Rachelle and Gold Coast again.
Just taking a moment to say what a wonderful experience I've had working with Jennifer Hedrick. I had very particular interests in my apartment search and she researched many options for me. She went out of her way to ensure the tours were organized, conducted an exhaustive review of potential neighborhoods, was flexible about a last-minute change, and spent a lot of time focused on my needs - all on a weekend! I really can't say enough great things about her and would recommend her and Gold Coast Realty to my closest friends. In all, an exceptional professional and a true pleasure to work with.
I recently moved into the Trump Tower with the help of Ryan Hardy. It was a great experience from start to finish. I will definitely refer my friends and colleagues. Appreciate your help Ryan
Susan and Justin showed us around town and were so wonderful to us! Susan was so patient with me as I corresponded with her about all my hopes and dreams for a new place, and because of her we ended up in the perfect location.
I want to take the time to say thanks to Joey Haras. He help me out find my apartment and went out his way to make sure I find what I wanted. He really was helpful at all times. Thank you once again for your help and hart work.
I'm really satisfied with my apartment you did a good job!!! 

Best 

Marcos Flores
I used Gold Coast Realty to find an apartment and it was great. My agent, Susan Bland, was tremendously helpful from day 1. Within a few hours of telling her what I was looking for, she sent me a list of 20+ properties to choose from. I went through and picked out places that I liked, and we had an apartment picked out in just a few days. Susan was really cool about everything and a huge help in finding a place, I would highly recommend her to anyone.
My husband and i had the pleasure of working with Joseph Haras. He was extremely professional and very helpful. He always got back to us very quickly.  I highly recommend him for all your real estate needs!
We had been looking for apartments for about 3 weeks after I moved to Chicago.  For some reason the agent we knew couldn't pinpoint what we wanted.  I wound up on Gold Coast Realty's website and within an hour (at about 8:00 p.m. on a weekend) we received an email from Renee Jasquez of Gold Coast Realty.  She asked our interest as she headed into a dinner engagement.  The next morning there were several properties from the MLS in my inbox.  I indicated which we were interest in.  She had appointments throughout the next weekend, however, when she found out we wanted to move in that weekend, she rearranged her schedule to accommodate ours and got appointments at the listings we were interested in.  She was really able to dial into our priorities and budget.  We rented the third apartment she showed us and moved in the following day.  Renee is very smart, professional and well-suited for her career.
Working with Kate was great. I could not ask for a someone more creative in finding a place I didn't even know existed. My family will be working with her soon! I look forward to a long relationship! Thanks
I used Kate at Gold Coast Realty to find a new condo this spring and had the best experience! She was thorough, punctual, and led me to the perfect place. I will definitely use her services again, if there comes a time when I need a different place.
Alex was great to work with. His follow up was excellent and he found us the perfect home. We have worked with other agents and none compared to the professionalism, follow through, and knowledge that Alex demonstrated. I would recommend Alex to anyone looking to purchase or rent a home in Chicago.
I had the best experience finding an apartment rental thanks to Ryan Hardy!! He always made himself available to me. He easily figured out what style of apartment and neighbourhood I liked, and I couldn't be happier with my new place. Thanks Ryan!!
I just found a new apartment that I am thrilled about! My experience working with Kate Hoffman of Gold Coast Realty was none less than professional and eye opening. There is so much about the different Chicago neighborhoods that I was clueless about... so it was great to find a realtor who both knew so much about the different areas and feel of the buildings, and who could also help tailor it all to me to find the perfect place! I hope anyone looking for some great experience is able to utiltize her services. Thanks Kate!
I wouldn't want anyone other than Jenn Hedrick to help me find a new place in Chicago. From the beginning, she was proactive in finding the best properties for the best price based on the criteria we gave her and made the effort to take us to each one. We could always reach her at a moment's notice and felt like we could really trust her for the whole ride. We narrowly missed an opportunity at the beginning of our search, but when the unit opened up for applications again, Jenn locked it down for us and contacted us right away. She made the paperwork quick, easy, and painless. 

Most importantly, Jenn's easygoing with a great sense of humor but takes her work and clients seriously---making her your ideal agent.
Kate Hoffman has been my broker for several months now! She has been excellent in helping me build my investment portfolio as I make purchases in several buildings around the downtown Chicago area. It  has been a great experience so far especially with me being an out of state client. I look forward to my next project with Kate. The company has a great website that allows me to navigate the listings as well!
Kate Hoffman is an EXCELLENT realtor! I needed to find an apartment in a two week window, which was stressful enough. Kate Hoffman at Gold Coast Realty made the process a breeze. She is absolutely wonderful - we were able to view apartments and condos at the pace we chose (QUICK!) without having to deal with "sales-talks" from the apartment management. She gave us a range of options and helped us narrow down what we wanted based on specific requirements we provided. The amount of apartments that she found for us was outstanding. We have now been in our current apartment for a few months and absolutely love it! I have recommended her to a friend and will continue to highly recommend her. Thank you, Kate!
Recently had the opportunity to work with Mike L at Gold Coast Realty; and it was a great overall experience and process with him. Mike was quick on follow-up, consistently connected, acted as an ambassador on my behalf, and was incredibly friendly during the all of our exchanges in person, email, and phone. 

I have had experiences in the past with agents who were pushy or made me feel rushed due to their busy schedules. Not the case with Mike, even though I know he has other clients and active accounts. Truly personalized and I felt supported in my hunt for a new home!
Had the pleasure of working with Joey Haras. Got a great apartment at a below market price. It was literally quick, easy, and simple.
Based in Canada and moving to Chicago I had to find just the right condo for me yet do it without the time to go to Chicago and see the property - all in just three weeks. Susan Bland was just the right person for this. Once the criteria was set the action started and she stayed ahead of this process working personably and professionally with me the entire way. Susan is very thorough covering all bases and picking up on all the small details that could be problematic if not addressed on time. With her hard work that included late night follow-ups and information correspondence, my lease has been signed with time to spare. Susan has been a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her for your next move to Chicago.
I recently worked with Kate Hoffman in finding a new place to live. She was excellent--finding me so many different options and setting up countless showings. Truely a great experience!!!
I was referred to Kate Hoffman by a business associate... Being new to Chicago (and with a husband who is always traveling), it was nice to get some personalized attention when trying to find a new home. We decided to rent at first (I had NO clue where to start)... and Kate was great at showing me neighborhoods that best fit my needs. It didn't take long to find a beautiful townhome in Lincoln Park and after just six months, we have loved it so much we have decided to buy! The neighborhood is great for the kids and very dog friendly. We love being able to walk to the park and all the shops and restaurants. We were so lucky to have such a great agent assisting us in the midst of such a hectic move! We will definitely be calling Kate soon to assist us with buying our first home in Chicago! Thanks - Casey Noltner
Joe Haras was the most flexible and dedicated agent I've ever worked with! He was extremely helpful, hand-selected wonderful options for me and did absolutely everything in his power to get me the apartment I was fighting for. I absolutely love my apartment - and it's all thanks to Joe!
I had the pleasure this past year working with the fabulous Christina R. Apartment searches are never easy, especially in the city of Chicago. I have a ridiculously busy schedule and like anyone else I had a number of must have's for my new place. I truly feel like Christina soared above the rest. She was able to find me a great variety, all in my parameters, exactly what I was looking for and more. She is highly professional, nice and this girl knows the city. Can't wait to work with her again when I'm ready to buy at the end of this lease!
I worked with Renee Jacquez at Gold Coast Realty and she is excellent and thorough.  She set up appointments for me promptly and showed me apartments in my price range.  She was pleasant, patient and professional and did not push me to make a decision.  She listened carefully to what I said I wanted and she responded to my inquiries.  She has good relationships with condo owners and knows the city and the housing market very well.  She took very good care of me and I would highly recommend her!
I am so lucky to have found a realtor as exceptional as Ryan Hardy. Looking for a home can be an overwhelming process, especially as a first time buyer. Ryan made this as smooth as I can imagine it could be.

Ryan's insight into my likes and dislikes helped him direct me to specific areas of the city he knew I would enjoy. He consistently spent much of his time taking me to showings, even if I had a list of 5-6 places I wanted to see. He was very methodical; mapping out showings we could see in close proximity over different days. This made taking time off and commuting immensely easy!

Having just started residency, I habitually found myself difficult to get in touch with and typically reached out during odd evening or Sunday hours. Ryan was receptive to all of my inquiries despite this and always got back to me in a timely manner. I felt that he valued my time and genuinely wanted to help make my life easier. Most importantly, he accomodated and worked around my erratic schedule. I have to commend him on his persistence with me. In the future, I highly recommend him for anyone looking into buying or renting. I will not hesitate to work with him in the future! Thanks for everything (:
Excellent experience to find my next rental apartment with Kate Hoffman! She was able to quickly learn my preferences along the way and narrow down my search. Before it was said and done, there were multiple places in the Gold Coast that would have fit my needs perfectly. I'm thrilled with my selection and have already referred several of my friends and colleagues to Kate so they can have a similar experience!
As someone who has worked in the real estate industry for 10 years, I have worked with a lot of realtors, both personally and professionally. I can honestly say that Kate Hoffman is one of the best I have ever encountered. She's incredibly responsive, patient and thorough. She is also genuinely interested in helping her clients find the best home and not at all focused on closing the deal so she can collect her check (like a lot of realtors).

We started working with Kate last year. We went back and forth on a lot of apartments, but ended up moving into an apartment found through a friend. Kate completely understood and told us to come back to her if we ever needed anything. This year we found ourselves looking for another place, and Kate was the first person I called. She's great and we couldn't be happier with the apartment she found for us. Hopefully we're done moving for awhile, but I will gladly recommend her to anyone I know who is looking for a home in Chicago
I worked with Kate Hoffman after hearing from a friend that she was very familiar with the areas we were interested in. It went very smoothly and I'm very excited that she helped me as I was trying to finish up loose ends for my daughter who is moving there this month! I really appreciate her professional manner and also that she helped walk me through some key areas for my daughter to explore. As a parent that was so helpful and put me at ease. We will definitely be using Kate and her company in the future as things progress. Great experience!


I have been using Kate Hoffman as my realtor for a few years now. She is always attentive, sharp and knowledgeable about different buildings as my needs change around the city. I have lived in a few different areas to get a good feeling of my favorite areas and now I'm looking to purchase. I look forward to the same great experience with Kate and I would recommend her company to anyone looking for great representation.


As a group of three, 23-year-olds with a small budget, we were not highly desired by many realtors. I was beginning to give up hope on finding our dream apartment in the city. However, one day, I visited the GCR website, and was contacted by a realtor who then got me in contact with Sue Bland. Sue was very professional and responsive. She showed us a perfect apartment in the Gold Coast, which was surprisingly within our price range. We knew that the apartment fit all our needs and decided to sign for it. We thought that the majority of the work was over when we found the place, but that was only the start to a long and obstacle filled journey! The apartment was owned by the Condo association, and required an unmentionable number of forms, checks, and approvals, which was only exacerbated by the fact that the three of us, plus a cosigner, had to each fill them out. Without Sue's help and constant follow up, there is no way we would have been able to get all of the paperwork in, much less in on time. The lessor’s realtor, Remax Premier, was a nightmare to deal with. They kept promising we would hear back about the lease "at 3 pm (insert day of the week)," and then never filled us in. Nonetheless, after two weeks of false promises, we finally got approved, and now we live in an amazing location. I highly recommend Sue Bland. She is timely, organized, and resourceful. Like I said, it was an incredibly frustration situation, and there is no way we could have done it without Sue. She really exceeded our expectations! Thanks again for all of your hard work!
I recently worked with Christopher Nagy--overall a great experience. Personally, I have never looked for somewhere to live, and I was just sending out random emails regarding listings I found on zumper. Luckily, I sent one to Christopher. It was a Sunday, but he got back to me that night (less than 2 hours later). He sent me the PDF with all the listing details. Over the next day we continued to correspond back and forth about what I was seeking, and he asked me some questions to help me prioritize what I wanted into something possible with my budget. We set up a time for that Tuesday to see a few places around the city. I was living in a dorm downtown, so we decided it was simplest for Christopher to pick me up and drop me off afterwards. We did the same thing the next day. The place I originally contacted him about was... um... well, not for me, and that was apparent shortly after arriving there. But all of the places he found were exactly what I was originally thinking. I ended up seeing four places in the two days (technically five, but I don't really count the place I found). If that doesn't sound like a lot, keep in mind I couldn't handle more than two each day because I soak up a lot of information and overanalyze everything. He was ready and willing to schedule more places and/or go back to the drawing board if I thought it best. I knew it was going to be one of those four, so we decided to give me a little time on my own to figure it out (what can I say, I like spreadsheets). Christopher was helpful and friendly, and he made me his complete focus while we were going from place to place. I am very glad he responded so quickly that night, and I appreciate all the time he put into finding my best options. I feel very fortunate he was there to help me through this process. ... Maybe I should be careful not to make him sound TOO good. ;-) Alright, maybe I am a bit biased... but seriously, I couldn't love my place more. Honestly, bottom line, I can't even imagine living somewhere else; this is home, and he helped me find it.
Had a great experience finding a place in River North. Lightening fast response time. Thanks Rachelle !
Renee Jaquez was extremely helpful when it came to finding a new apartment. She was very easy to reach and always got back to my boyfriend and I with any questions we had regarding apartments we were interested in. She worked with our schedules and was very patient with the whole process. Renee is very knowledgeable and knew exactly what we were looking for. Once we found our apartment, she made the process of signing our lease very easy. We highly recommend her!
My wife and I had an amazing experience with Gold Coast Realty's Jennifer Hedrick! We would absolutely use her again, and would recommend that others do the same. She is extremely attentive, diligent, and knowledgeable.
I wanted to send many Thanks to Gold Coast Realty and especially one of the best brokers I have met, Kate Hoffman. I was referred to Kate by a fellow Charity fundraiser attendee and she immediately was able to connect with me and my family. At a last minutes noticed, she helped my sister (who was relocating back to Chicago) fins a great place to get settled and with everything she wanted. My sister loves the place and was very excited to have such warm yet professional help to ease her anxiety with moving. I look forward to recommending Kate to anyone I can and for the working pleasure of my own in the near future! Call Gold Coast Realty and ask for Kate if you want a great experience!!! Thanks to a great company!!! Dave
Leo Clark -- You are THE all-star real estate broker ! Thanks for your professionalism and patience. The industry is a better place with your service. -- Chuck Walsh

 
Christopher Nagy was tireless in his efforts to match my specifications to the ever changing available properties. He assured me that he would find me the perfect place. We traveled to various properties for several days and Christopher showed me not one but two properties that perfectly met my needs. Needless to say that was a situation that was unexpected by me. Not only did Chris deliver but he exceeded expectations. Great Job Chris
Dale Maher had provided siginificant insight in helping us select our Chicago Gold Coast property,,,,, we would highlly recommend Dale. 
Rachel Kalocinski was an OUTSTANDING agent to work with. She is not only extremely knowledgeable of neighborhood trends, but also, simply put, is caring for her clients' needs, which makes her the only agent I would consider for Chicagoland listings. Working with Rachel you feel as though you are her number one priority. I recall her personally driving us to dozens of properties, personally sitting through our 4-hour inspection, and personally attending our closing. In summary, Rachel provides superior knowledge with a personal touch!
Jennifer Hedrick helped me find our new apartment in the loop and she did a fabulous job. She knew exactly what we were looking for and she was always available to answer our questions and show us apartments, even on the weekend. She was always very nice, sweet, and extremely organized. I am definitely going to keep in touch with her in the future regarding my next apartment search.
I just had the pleasure to work with Jennifer Hedrick at Gold Coast Realty to find a 1 bedroom apartment in the River North / Gold Coast areas.
She is professional, quickly responsive, ready to help you out in all your requests, and also a really nice person to chat with during the multiple apartment viewings.
She did a great job in scouting all the availability that was matching my needs.
She took care of all the viewing scheduling and all the possible paperwork.

She really helped me out in my apartment search, and at the end I got a great place!
I don't know how I would have done without her. Because of work I don't have so much free time to spend for apartment hunting.

If you ever need to move to Chicago, keep Jennifer Hedrick in mind. She will be a great help for sure.
Kimberly Evetts helped me find my first place in the city and she was amazing! I was so overwhelmed with the whole process but Kim helped me get through everything. After just meeting once I signed a lease within a matter of minutes! Such a sweet person, great personality, and made me feel confident in my decision.
Rachel Kalocinski at Gold Coast Realty is a superstar. I've bought multiple properties with her over the years. She is very patient, knowledgeable, and honest in her opinions. She never pushes anything on you and will sometimes even tell you that you probably shouldn't waste your time with some properties. She drove me around to many, many, many locations. She knows the Chicagoland area like no one else. She helped out throughout the entire closing process. Don't waste your time working with other agents. Rachel is the one you should be buying your next place with. If you're an idiot, then go with someone else who will waste your time and will try to make you buy shit.
Justin Penn exceeded my expectations as a realtor. As a first time home-buyer I was pretty clueless and Justin patiently guided me through the process, explaining every detail along the way thoroughly and without pretentiousness. He scheduled every showing very quickly and always gave me his honest and up front opinion, even when it was more in my best interest than his financially. When we hit a couple snags in the closing, Justin was the one who scrambled to get all the issues taken care of and all of the professionals that he recommended (inspector, attorney, etc.) exceeded my expectations as well. Justin was a life-saver on more than one occasion and without him I'm not sure that I would be writing this review from my gorgeous new home. Thanks Justin!!
Ayushi at Gold Coast Realty is absolutely wonderful. She was extremely responsive, helpful and made sure that every one of our requirements were met while looking for an apartment in Chicago. She kept our budget in mind and found us an amazing apartment that fit all of our needs. I recommend working with Ayushi. She will help you find the perfect apartment or home.
I worked with Christina Riordan to find an apartment. I searched for an apartment from out of state, although I have lived in Chicago before. I knew which areas I wanted to focus on and Christina assisted me with narrowing a search to my price range. I had tried working with other agents from other companies but most were not responsive. Christina always responded quickly and we were able to handle the entire process via email which was great given my other time commitments. I would definitely recommend Christina to anyone searching for an apartment or house in Chicago.
Excellent. Hands down. Chicago was difficult for finding a place. Not any more thanks to this agency. Special thanks to Renee who was working tirelessly for getting things sorted. You can safely count on this agent's superb reliability and efficiency - and all of this comes with a pretty smile :).
I just moved to Chicago and needed to find a place sight unseen due to a short time-frame. While that is stressful in and of itself, Jennifer Zglobicki at Gold Coast Realty helped make it an easy and comfortable process.

I knew a pretty small radius where I wanted to be, so I started looking for properties online on a Sunday. I inquired about a few and immediately got a response from Jen. She was very responsive and helpful. After talking to her about what I was looking for, she sent me several listings within a few hours and went to view my favorites in the following couple of days. She sent me videos of the properties and was constantly updating me as the process went on. I just moved in, and the place is just as I expected if not better! I highly recommend working with her.
We had the privilege of working with Rachel Kalocinski at Gold Coast Realty. It was the BEST decision we made in the home buying process.  As a same-sex couple, it was important to us to find a realtor we felt comfortable with.  Rachel was exceptional and she helped us to find our perfect first home.  We appreciated Rachel's attention to detail, hard work and customer loyalty.  Throughout the entire process, we had complete confidence and trust in Rachel to guide us through the home buying process.  Her hard work and dedication was obvious to us at all times.  I was so happy with her service that I called upon Rachel's assistance again to help me find the perfect office for my business in downtown Chicago. Rachel never fails to deliver!  She helped me to find the perfect office space (and an incredible deal) on the Magnificent Mile of Chicago. Again, she was right there along side me to help guide me through the entire process.  I knew Rachel was looking out for my best interest with the office and our best interest with our first home.  There's nothing more comforting than to have complete trust in a realtor like Rachel.  Soon it will be time to start thinking about our next home and Rachel will be our go to person.  We would recommend her to our family and friends in a heart beat!  We highly recommend Rachel to you as well!
When we came from Calif to Chicago, (I know people think I'm crazy) in Sept we needed help and we met with Kimberly Evetts. She was very professional, responsive and supportive. She ultimately found our current place and we are very happy with the results. Kimberly is wonderful to work with and I would utilize her service again should we change locations.
Renee Jaquez helped my roommate and I find an apartment over the past month. Besides always being available to answer our questions and give advice whenever we needed it, she quickly picked up on the type of apartment we were looking for and provided us with a great selection to choose from. I will definitely work with her in the future.
I am so lucky to have found a realtor as exceptional as Ryan Hardy. Looking for a home can be an overwhelming process, especially as a first time buyer. Ryan made this as smooth as I can imagine it could be. 

Ryan's insight into my likes and dislikes helped him direct me to specific areas of the city he knew I would enjoy. He consistently spent much of his time taking me to showings, even if I had a list of 5-6 places I wanted to see. He was very methodical; mapping out showings we could see in close proximity over different days. This made taking time off and commuting immensely easy!

Having just started residency, I habitually found myself difficult to get in touch with and typically reached out during odd evening or Sunday hours. Ryan was receptive to all of my inquiries despite this and always got back to me in a timely manner. I felt that he valued my time and genuinely wanted to help make my life easier. Most importantly, he accomodated and worked around my erratic schedule. I have to commend him on his persistence with me. In the future, I highly recommend him for anyone looking into buying or renting. I will not hesitate to work with him in the future! Thanks for everything (:
Rachel King was a fantastic resource in my apartment hunt. She was honest, professional, and accommodated all of my request. I found the perfect apartment in Chicago within a few days of contacting her. Highly recommend Gold Coast and Rachel King!
I was helped by Sue Bland and she is the best!!! She helped us find our perfect apartment in our ideal location and in our budget. Sue immediately responded to our several emails and always sent us tons of properties even when we changed the location we were looking in a bunch of times. Her husband Justin also helped us one day and he was great too! Both Sue and Justin were extremely helpful and I would recommend them both to anyone. Thanks to both of you!! :)
I worked with Joey Haras and it was a great experience.  He was friendly and made looking for an apartment enjoyable.  He was knowledgeable of the city and was able to organize multiple apartment viewings so we could select the best one.  He was quick to respond with any questions we had.  I would recommend him to anyone looking for a place.
Ryan Hardy was great to work with. He listened to our preferences and helped us find the perfect condo. He was accessible, answered all of our questions, and made the process very simple. We would highly recommend working with Ryan!
I used Mike Larson to find a place for my move to Chicago. I visited one weekend and he took me around the city all day looking for buildings. Unfortunately we didn't find one that weekend, but he remained hard at work to find us a place that accommodated our every need. Extremely happy with my experience and would recommend him to anyone.
Rachel Kalocinski was fantastic! She helped me find the perfect place to call home and made sure to stay within my budget. She was always willing to answer my questions and was very patient. Will definitely be going back to her anytime I need a realtor.
Had the pleasure of working with Joey Haras with our Real Estate needs... he was awesome, informative and helpful! We will definitely drop his name to anyone needing a Professional in the area!
Jennifer and I worked a couple of months together and she was always there through all the different situations we faced along the way until I found my apartment. I would definitely recommend Gold Coast and Jennifer Hedrick to my friends.
Ms Kate Hoffman is the very best. She thrives in thinking in the shoe of clients. She is especially creative in identifying and fulfilling client's needs. The process with her makes this purchase a total joy.
Susan Bland was fantastic to work with in helping find my new home in Chicago. She really listened to exactly what I was looking for, and was so prompt in sending me lots of options to review. Really flexible schedule and super-friendly, she felt like more of a friend than anything!!! Big fan of Susan Bland, and as a result, Gold Coast Realty as well. Best of all - she helped me find an AWESOME apartment that I absolutely looooveeee!!!!
I have been working with Kate Hoffman on finding some great options for my relocation to downtown Chicago. I am not quite ready to decide which place, but Kate has been great on helping me get to know the areas so that as soon as its time, I can make a quick decision. I have had a great experience and look forward to finding the perfect home to buy!
I was working with Ayushi Kukreja. She was very quick with sending me the list of available apartments that were all exactly what I was looking for. We scheduled a tour the next day(which was fast and easy). I ended up renting it, and if I ever need to look for a new apartment, I would definitely work with Ayushi again.
It was a true delight to work with Ms. Kate Hoffman. Her knowledge and professionalism smooth out many possible bumps in the process.
Searching for a place to live in Chicago can be a daunting task. However, having a great agent working for you takes the stress out of it. I would highly recommend Kim Evetts. Simply put, she was amazing. Customer service at its best! Kim listened, quickly responded, kept me updated and followed up on everything.
Ryan Hardy was super responsive to my inquiry about moving into the Trump Tower... Easy to work with on the paperwork process and accommodated all of my questions / requests... I would highly recommend his services to other prospects.
Kate Hoffman is an excellent realtor. I couldn't rave enough about how much she helped me this summer!
We had the pleasure of working with Rachel Kalocinski for the last few months to purchase a condo for my daughter.  After countless showings, endless text messages and emails, we were lucky to find a placer.  I can't emphasis the satisfaction that we had with Rachel.  She went out of her way to schedule showings that fit into our schedule, showed us everything that we wanted to see-numerous times for some.  Her knowledge of the area was amazing.  The patience and professionalism she showed to us was above and beyond.  Sincerely appreciate the fact that she took the time to attend the closing with me and still is answering my countless text messages even though we have closed the deal!   If, and when we need a Realtor again, we will undoubtedly call Rachel.  She made the somewhat stressful time of finding the right place, bearable!  Would not hesitate to recommend Rachel Kalocinsk...you will be happy you called her!
I was very pleased with my experience with Gold Coast Realty Chicago. Jennifer Hedrick was professional, organized, extremely knowledgeable of different neighborhoods/buildings, very hard working, and helpful in my search. I would recommend Gold Coast Realty for any friends in the area looking for an apartment after my positive experience.
Gold Coast Realty helped me find a place in the River North area of Chicago. Not only did they find me an amazing place with an amazing price but the service was exceptional. If you are looking to rent or buy a condo in Chicago you should contact Gold Coast Realty...Mary Gwen
My fiance and I worked with Susan Bland at Gold Coast Realty, and she was phenominal! We had a very tight timeframe to find an apartment, and she led us to a place within our budget, and with all the amentities we requested. Not only did she go above and beyond, but she continually was on our side when dealing with the other parties. She kept in touch, and was so prompt whenever we had any questions. I would highly recommend Susan to anyone looking for a Chicago apartment!
Ryan Hardy was an excellent realtor. He guided these first-time homebuyers painlessly through the process. We'd use him again in a heartbeat!!!

My fiancee and I decided to take the plunge into homeownership, but were pretty limited by our finances - which typically gets you the snub from most realtors in Chicago. Ryan treated us like we were his only clients. He walked us through the entire process.

In short, if you're buying your first home (or any # home), you can't go wrong with Ryan. Lots of realtors are condescending to young couples, but he treated us with care and respect. We love our new home and we have Ryan to thank!
Thanks to a great realtor, I am about to move into my dream condo. Kate Hoffman was my realtor and showed me a lot of great places. I was very business traveling for work so did not have much time and getting nervous I wouldn't be able to lock one down while away on business. Kate helped me with all the details and I wanted to say thanks to her. The company is very professional and has a great website also. I hope to work with Kate more in the future!
I recently worked with Kate Hoffman while looking for a new home. Kate was fantastic. She lined up several condos in all the areas that I was interested in and after only 5 days we found the perfect place. I will recommend Kate to any friend of mine that is searching for a new home. Thanks again Kate.
This is a great firm. I have used them for all of my real estate transactions over the past 12 years. They always get back to you right away and really know the neighborhoods and buildings. I would definitely recommend them to any of my friends or family. Todd

My husband and I could not be happier with working with Ayushi Kukreja at Gold Coast Reality! She listened to our needs (which were a lot) and found us a great place. She didn't try to talk us into anything and kept sending us places until we found the one with few compromises. She was quick to respond and trekked all over the city with our cranky 7 month old in the heat one day. I'd definitely recommend her


Christina Riordan was fantastic to work with. She went above and beyond to help us find a place that fit our wants and needs. I would recommend Christina and Gold Coast to anyone searching for a place to live!
Working with Kate Hoffman has been such a great experience. I couldn't be happier in my new home in my new city. She comes highly recommended.
I had been desperately looking for a new apartment for nearly two months, working with multiple real estate agents. After a few failed attempts to lock down a new place I contacted Kim Evetts at Gold Coast Realty. She really listened to all of my wants and needs, finding me the perfect apartment the very next day. I moved in a week later and could not be happier with my new home! Kim made the whole process extremely easy. I truly could not have asked for a better experience.
Susan Bland and Justin Penn were fantastic realtors. They found a beautiful apartment for my boyfriend and me in the South Loop! We are thrilled with the apartment, building location, great views and walkability of our place. They were very attentive and approachable, considered all of our needs, and found us a perfect place. They were also very organized which was a HUGE plus. Even when we decided to alter our budget, they were extremely helpful and continued to find great options for us. Everything ran so smoothly! We would definitely recommend them! These two will find you a wonderful place.
Worked with Ryan Hardy for the second time, this time as sellers, and could not be happier with his delivery and results. He was impressively diligent in following up with clients, and very professional. He made the process so seemless and easy. We have always referred potential buyers and sellers to him and will continue to do so. If you want to definitively get things done without any loose ends, he should definitely be at the top of your list!
Joey Haras has been my agent for my last to places and yes, he's the best I've dealt with. Always takes into consideration my budget and needs for location and commute. When things didn't work out he kept looking and coming back with more options. Thank you Joey, wish there were more like you!

I had the privilege of working with Renee from Gold Coast Realty when I was searching for a new apartment to rent. Finding a good rental at the right price can be such a challenge in the city.  I've worked with many realtors before but she was leaps and bounds above the rest. I used to always feel like I was hassling my agents with my needs and questions and concerns, but she never made me feel that way. I always felt heard and supported by her. She went the extra mile in my search and always kept in communication with me about what was available and helped balance my expectations. I honestly felt like she cared about my needs and wants and was always there to listen. She's very patient and understanding. I would highly recommend using Gold Coast realty and especially Renee Jaquez.


 


Jacqueline Moynihan at Gold Coast is an ABSOLUTE PLEASURE to work with and do business with, She is 110% committed to her clients and does business in a professional yet soft manner. She has stayed in tuned with me during the long process of looking for a Condo and has never given up stamina on my search once. Her efforts are tireless as she has shown me dozens of properties that fit my needs. She has been organized and extremely patient with me during my indeciseness. I love spending time with her condo searching. She's fun, energetic, ENTIRELY KNOWLEDGABLE on pretty much ALL THE BUILDINGS in the downtown area. Its obvious she has a lot of experience and robust genuine passion for the Chicago Real Estate market. In addition to her enthusiasm and professionalism, she has superb taste so acts as a great second opinion when looking for a home. I cannot wait to continue to work with Jacquie in the future. I recommend her toeveryone looking to work with a realtor!
I'm moving from New York to Chicago, and Renee Jaquez made the long distance apartment search effortless. Not only did she provide options via MLS, but she also took the time to reach out to high rise leasing offices to get availability and pricing. Renee was responsive to my many, many e-mails, considerate of my budget and preferences, patient for the month it took me to confirm my relocation and very transparent ensuring that I took everything (good and bad) into consideration before deciding on a property. After countless e-mails, a number of calls and six FaceTime appointments, I was able to settle on a great apartment in my preferred location. While I have no intention of moving anytime soon, I welcome the opportunity to work with Renee again!
I worked with Rachel Kalocinski to buy my first place here in Chicago. As a first time homebuyer, Rachel took the time to explain every bit of the process to me and really helped me find a place that suited my needs.  Her experience came in handy as we were dealing with a very difficult seller.  Rachel put my mind at ease and negotiated a great deal on my behalf.
Jennifer Zglobiki was great from the beginning of this process. She's incredibly responsive, attentive, and accessibility. She is patient, and she listened and understood my wants and needs well enough to show me many great potential homes, one of which I just closed on. I would highly recommend this wonderful agent to each and every person looking to find and buy or rent a new home!
I found my Gold Coast agent, Jennifer Zglobicki, when I inquired online about a condo that was for rent... Jennifer immediately contacted me and was available the following morning with several properties available for me to view. We went out a on a couple of tours together to view properties and her insight and guidance was most helpful. I am now settled into an all-new beautiful apartment at the edge of Streeterville and The Gold Coast. I have recommended Jennifer to two of my co-workers that are anxious to work with her once their current leases end. I highly recommend Jennifer Zglobicki with Gold Coast Realty!
Another review for Sue Bland and Justin Penn, both of whom were awesome to work with (responsive, attentive, approachable, etc.). Sue, in particular, really went to bat for us when I was dealing with a frustrating and unresponsive agent representing the owner of a unit I was trying to procure (I didn't end up getting the unit, but not because of any fault or lack of effort on Sue's part). I would definitely recommend/refer them to anyone looking for agents that will make the housing search and moving process as painless as possible.
We recently had the pleasure of working with Susan and Justin at Gold Coast Realty to find our next rental. They were both easy to work with and honestly a great team! The two of them made searching, negotiating and finalizing our deal a quick and painless process - and as fun as it could be! Email and texting both Susan and Justin was professional and efficient to get our deal closed as soon as possible. We're happily settled in our new home - thanks to Susan and Justin :)
I was making a move from Atlanta to Chicago and needed to have a place ready by the time I got there due to a short time-frame. I knew a pretty small radius where I wanted to be, so I started looking for properties online on a Sunday. I inquired about a few and immediately got a response from Jennifer Zglobicki at Gold Coast Realty. Jen was very responsive and helpful. After talking to her about what I was looking for, she sent me several listings within a few hours and went to view my favorites in the following couple of days. She sent me videos of the properties and was constantly updating me as the process went on. She definitely helped make the move much less stressful. I have moved in now, and the place is just as I expected if not better! I highly recommend working with her.
We have worked with Susan and Justin through Gold Coast Realty twice in the past several years. They're a compassionate couple who listen, connect, understand and super reliable. They enjoy what they do and it shows. I enjoy working with people who care and you will want this team in your corner.

It goes beyond client status, we consider them good friends! :)
My girlfriend and I worked with Renee J, who went above and beyond in working with us to find an apartment in the city on short notice. Although we ended up going with a different apartment outside of those that she had shown us, I plan to work with Renee again if I need to find a new place in the city because she went out of her way to work with our work schedule and found us some really great properties. Would absolutely recommend to my friends.
Rachel Kalocinski was an extremely helpful agent. She answered all my questions and helped guide me through each process. Rachel was easy to get in contact with. She also helped me find a parking spot. She is very attentive to her clients. I would recommend her to others.
Jennifer Zglobicki was one of the best realtors I have ever worked with.  Honest, hard-working, will only show you exactly what you ask for, and will not push you into something you don't want.  I'm picky, yet she worked with me patiently over an extended period of time until we found the perfect place for me.  Thanks, Jen!
If you're looking for an apartment, condo, house, rock... shoe... literally anything in Chicago, Ryan Hardy should be your go to guy. I cannot thank him enough for finding my amazing apartment and all of the small gems I have found hidden around the city for all things miscellaneous. A real pleasure to work with.
RACHELLE, I am very satisfied with your help!
I spent countless hours browsing through apartment web sites on my own with no luck, and then finally asked Jenn Hedrick to help me find my new Chicago home. I think we visited seven or more properties in one day, and she never lost momentum. She was really driven to find me the perfect place. We drove all over the city so I could get a feel for what neighborhood worked best and when we finally found the one for me, she fought to make sure I got it. Had we not acted promptly, the apartment was set to go to other applicants. She made sure I got the information in before I anyone else could view it, and her fast actions helped me land the apartment. Apartment hunting can be stressful, but she made it a fun experience and did everything she could to ensure I got my home. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone in search of an apartment in Chicago.
I met Kate Hoffman through a mutual friend shortly after moving to Chicago! I was staying with friends until I found a place and she was great at helping me through the various neighborhoods! I definitely would have been lost without hew knowledge of the areas and buildings. Now we are in a great building with an awesome pool and I really enjoy my new place. Thanks to a great company and a great agent!
I have been working with broker Kate Hoffman for several years now! I am delighted to begin working with her again as I look to buy investment properties. Gold Coast Realty always delivers and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great experience!


We worked through Rachelle King and had a wonderful experience! She found us a place with everything we needed/wanted, and was a delight to work with. Rachelle is very professional and it is obvious that she knows her stuff. Highly recommended!


Thank you Christina R. for helping me find a fantastic apartment! Christina was excellent about keeping in touch with me and keeping me apprised of viewings, meet times etc. I was very happy and would certainly recommend Christina.
I was so lucky to have randomly met Ayushi Kukreja from Gold Coast Realty while struggling to find an apartment in the Oldtown/Lincoln Park area.  Before she even knew my housing needs, she had given me her card and encouraged me to contact her at any time.  Not only was Ayushi quickly and constantly sending me new listings that met my (extensive) criteria, but she also didn't waste time taking me to showings that she knew wouldn't fit my taste or may not have been in the safest of areas.  It truly felt like I had a friend looking out for me in the apartment searching process.  Once we found an apartment, Ayushi picked up my rental application from my work early in the morning and took it to the leasing office right when they opened because she knew the apartment would rent fast and I would not make it in time because of my work schedule.  I am so grateful for her help and would absolutely recommend her to anyone who needs help looking for housing in the Chicago area!
Rachelle King found me exactly what I was looking for. She's the best!
I am new to the city and Kim Evetts took me under her wing and found a collection of properties that aligned with what I needed/wanted. Thanks to her efforts, I now have a great apartment that I am extremely happy with. I'll definitely be giving her a call when I need a new place.
Working with Gold Coast, Joey Haras specifically, was an absolutely great experience. Very professional, timely in all aspects and with my satisfactory outcome in mind. Combing over all the numerous options can be frustrating but it was made easy for me. Very happy :) Thank you. Highly recommended.
Christopher Nagy was very responsive, took on board our comments and wishes, and delivered. I am happy customer!
I recently bought a condo with the help of Rachelle King. She showed it to me late in the evening and we got the paperwork done fast. From seeing it to buying it was only 5 days. She  was able to get me all the info I needed and answer all of my questions. i will def be working with her again.
Rachelle King helped us find the perfect townhouse! She was very responsive to all of our questions and made the purchase of a new home a lot less stressful. I highly recommend Rachelle's knowledge and experience!
Fantastic experience working with Kimberly Evetts! She made the process of finding a new home so much less stressful with her patient and knowledgeable approach to the leasing process. Highly recommended!
Ms. Rachelle King did an excellent job during my apartment search. She understood and accommodated my requests and found a beautiful apartment in Streeterville within just one weekend of searching. I would highly recommend working with both Rachelle King and Gold Coast Realty.
I would highly recommend this company. I was linked up with broker Kate Hoffman and had a great experience. I didn't have much time both to find a place and also in general with travels so I was very please at her ability to expedite the process. Everything was very professional and I look forward to working with her in the future.
I am a long distance buyer from California and Rachelle King continues to be helpful in the purchase of a condo in Chicago. She strategically worked with us on the difficult process that comes with long distance buying and time changes. She has been available all hours of the day to answer questions and even after the sale has made herself available  for contractors an the key hand off. 
We started the process with her assessing our need and sending me listings she knew would be desirable. I had a floor level and a tier I was interested in.
Thank you Rachelle for making a long distance purchase as easy as possible.
My wife and I relocated from Los Angeles to the Windy City for job reasons and since we are lifelong Angelenos we had no idea where to even start our apartment hunt. We made one phone call to Gold Coast Realty and we were set up with Renee who came to our rescue! We were doing this remotely and knew we needed a trust worthy agent. Renee quickly earned our trust and proved her knowledge and experience time and time again. She read over all of our contracts and negotiated on our behalf to ensure that we were receiving the best deal possible. She went above and beyond but most importantly she treated us like a friend. If you're ever moving to Chicago or need help with real estate issues don't hesitate to ask for Renee or anyone at Gold Coast Realty. You won't be disappointed!
It was such a pleasure working with Joseph Haras, he listens, he went out of his way to reschedule and found me my dream place, I highly recommend him.
My wife and I were in the process of selling our condo, and we got a buyer who wanted a really near-term closing date. We wanted to go back to renting to make things easier, but really only wanted to look in a handful of neighborhoods.

We worked with Rachelle King, and she was able to schedule numerous showings within three days of being in contact. Despite being on a really tight schedule and having some significant limitations in terms of location, she found us a fantastic place with a reasonable price in the Loop. I'd absolutely work with her again - she gets things done.
Worked with Sue Bland this fall to find an apt in River North. She found terrific properties on a short notice and was very effective at pre-screening needs and interests. Would definitely recommend and use again to find the next perfect place.
We've had nothing but excellent experience working with Jennifer Zglobicki from Gold Coast Realty. Jen responded instantly to our queries, in the evening and during the weekend, which was extremely helpful for us. When the contract was signed, Jen tirelessly followed up with the landlord's agent to make sure the apartment was meeting our expectations. Would highly recommend Jen's services and would be glad to work with her again.
My fiance & I used Gold Coast Realty (Matt Doughty) and found exactly where and what we were hoping for in a quick amount of time. Matt put together a series of showings for us, working around each of our work schedules. No chance we could have done it ourselves without Matt & his team. Thanks.
I have had the pleasure of working with Ms. Kate Hoffman on several Chicago projects... the most recent of which being for my own personal Real Estate investments. It was a wonderful experience working with such a knowledgeable and well-spoken realtor, and quite endearing to hear feedback from her persepective. Kate made my decisions easier because she was so organized and on-point with what I was looking for... and also much harder because we saw so many great new buildings that now I'm considering buying more than planned! I hope her future clients enjoy the experience as much as I did! Thanks!
I would highly recommend Ryan Hardy as a realtor. Very professional and easy to communicate with. I had a remarkable experience with him and will definitely be in touch with him for any further real estate requirements in the future!
Mike Larson was able to find an apartment that fit my preferences immediately after weeks of searching Chicago with other agents/brokers.  REQUEST HIM.  He made everything VERY easy.  I will definitely be using him again.
Having accepted a job transfer to Chicago, I was somewhat apprehensive about my ability to find the perfect apartment. After a brief search online I received a voicemail from Rachelle at Gold Coast. We initially played phone tag but she was persistent and we finally connected. When I arrived in Chicago for the first set of showings I was impressed by her professionalism. She very tactfully helped me adjust my unrealistic requirements given my price range. As we went from apartment to apartment our discussions revealed what I really needed; amble closet space. In the end we found the perfect apartment. I highly recommend Gold Coast Realty to people from both the area and out-of-town.

I can't imagine how someone could be better at this job than Renee at Gold Coast Realty is.

I came to Gold Coast with a difficult request (to find a place and move in within a few days), and Renee delivered above what I thought would be possible. She was professional, incredibly responsive and took control of the situation to make sure that she understood exactly what I wanted and that she could deliver it. And she did deliver.

More importantly, there were a number of bumps in the road (actually, more like walls) that Renee ran through to make sure that my interests were put first and things were done professionally and on time. 

From my impression, the rest of Gold Coast Realty seems to operate with the same sense of integrity that Renee clearly possesses. 

In short: do business with these people.

After months of searching for apartments on my own I still couldn't find the place I was looking for. I began working with a different real estate company, which will not be named, and they were unresponsive and had no interest in helping me. As I continued my search online, I stumbled across Gold Coast's website. The next morning, after being stood up by a different agency, I had an email from Alex Moran asking if I needed assistance. I figured I would give it a shot since I had nothing to lose. As soon as I agreed to work with him I knew I made the right decision. Alex responded to all of my emails and texts almost immediately and offered to show me places the next day. Even while he was on vacation I never had to wait more than 30 minutes for him to answer one of my million questions and requests. The day he was back in town he took my mom and I to see 9 apartments. It was such a long day but Alex was so patient and helpful throughout the entire process. He even drove us around the city on one of the hottest and crowded summer days, which was much appreciated. 3 days later I was signing a lease for my dream apartment. I've lived here for a month now and couldn't be happier. I cannot praise Alex Moran enough for his professionalism and assistance during a process that can be frustrating and seem endless. When I am ready to buy a condo I will definitely be contacting Gold Coast Realty again.
Susan Bland and Justin Penn were fantastic realtors. They found a beautiful apartment for my boyfriend and me in the South Loop! We are thrilled with the apartment, building location, great views and walkability of our place. They were very attentive and approachable, considered all of our needs, and found us a perfect place. They were also very organized which was a HUGE plus. Even when we decided to alter our budget, they were extremely helpful and continued to find great options for us. Everything ran so smoothly! We would definitely recommend them! These two will find you a wonderful place.

I found the perfect condo thanks to Joey Haras! I'm so happy at my new place, working with him was so easy, he was always available, he knew what I was looking for and went out of his way to make sure I was able to view every option I had! Thank you Joey!!!


I used Kate at Gold Coast Realty to find a new condo this spring and had the best experience! She was thorough, punctual, and led me to the perfect place. I will definitely use her services again, if there comes a time when I need a different place.




Kim was great! I was looking for something very specific, but we weren't able to find it the first go around. Just when I was about to throw my budget out the window just to get what I wanted, Kim found a place that wasn't even on the market yet. She's very patient and super helpful. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone!
