Gerry did a wonderful job after taking over from the first agent we hired. He was always quick to answer our questions & do further research when he didn't know the answer right away.

-Stephanie Long
Gerry Gibbs is an outstanding real-estate agent. He helped us purchase our Sherman Gardens co-op and a few years later, he helped us sell it. During the entire process, Gerry explained clearly what was happening and supported any recommendations with factual data; there were no misunderstandings. He also went 'the extra mile' for us as we were out-of-town for most of the negotiation process and for the closing. A 'glitch' emerged with the co-op association regarding approval of our buyer; Gerry literally 'saved' the deal with his communication skills. We would highly recommend Gerry to anyone needing a real-estate agent.

-Kay Miles
We really enjoyed working with Gerry. We absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell within the Evanston area. He was extremely knowledgeable about the marketplace and provided clear guidance around all of our questions.  He was ALWAYS very responsive. We knew we could depend on him to get back to us quickly with answers. He went above and beyond his responsibilities by helping us find financing for our difficult-to-sell condo unit. He has continued providing great service after the deal closed by helping send mail that was inappropriately delivered to our old address.  We know we chose the right agent for selling our condo and have only positive feedback about Gerry.  (Tonya & David / Sellers in a condo building where conventional financing was no longer possible due to foreclosure issues on other units.)

" Gerry was professional and very well-versed about Evanston.  He kept me well-informed. He promptly returned calls. I recommend him to others." - David / First-time buyer who used Gerry to purchase his townhome. (Update: Since, he's hired Gerry to help buy and sell several other properties in Evanston and Chicago.)

"Gerry was everything you could ask for in an agent. The seller was difficult and Gerry worked with her agent and attorney to keep things moving. We were very pleased. We've already referred 2 clients to him." - Pat and Sandy / Evanston buyers

"Gerry was professional and able to explain to us B&W's marketing. He followed through on all his marketing commitments and helped us determine fair market value of our condo. We valued his skills and advice during negotiations with the buyer. He communicated regularly throughout the selling process. Overall we give Gerry the highest marks and were completely satisfied with his performance on our behalf. This is the second time we've used Gerry for our real estate needs." Shawn & Lynsey / Evanston homeowners who bought their house and sold their condo with Gerry's help.

"Gerry was outstanding. He returned phone calls almost immediately and had great feedback. We had heard good things about him from Connie Z who also used his services to sell her unit in our building. Without question, Gerry is knowledgeable, nice, and willing to go the extra mile for his clients. He was a tremendous asset and went above and beyond our expectations in every way." - Conrad & Klara / Evanston co-op owners who hired Gerry to help sell when they moved away from Evanston.

"As a first-time buyer, I was especially satisfied with how he explained documents, process, and procedures.  He kept me informed throughout my purchase. His overall service quality was very good. He was great at responding to phone calls. I found him by accident - he was the seller's agent on another property that was already under contract.  He was able to talk to me about other properties and seemed very qualified and helpful. I recommend him to others." - Erin / First-time buyer in Evanston. (Update: Erin has since sold her first property and moved up to a larger home. Gerry helped her in the sale and her 2nd purchase.)

As first time buyers, we came into this situation as neophytes. Gerry took us under his wing and made us comfortable.  He always made us feel like we were his only client and top priority.  His tact and professionalism with which he dealt with every situation was quite admirable. We look forward to working with him in the future when we look for our next home. We miss seeing him so regularly!  - David & Susan / First-time buyers of a condo in Evanston.
