BETH KELLER GOMEZ
Nothing but GREAT to say! She found us the perfect lot to buy and build our new home and sold our old home in under a week! Then she got us the perfect rental to stay in while the new home was being completed. Beth helped stage out home for showings, recommend reasonable updates to give a fresh appearance, and made us feel like we were her best and most important client. Beth takes her job and performance to heart and is truly on top of her game!
- Julie D., Single Family Home, Ukrainian Village
Beth was exceptional in the marketing and selling of our home. She researched our area, compiled a map of our home in comparison to all the local hot spots. I believe Beth's strongest attribute is her ability to communicate. Her clear and open communication was integral for my husband and I, as well as her ability to sell our home to potential buyers and realtors. I have worked with other Realtors in the past and no one has stacked up to her knowledge of the Real Estate market and level of professionalism.
- Ann N., Single Family Home, Logan Square
Beth Gomez helped me find the perfect home! She was totally in tune with my needs every step of the way. I could not have found a better Realtor. I recommend her to everyone!
- Judy A., Condo, Gold Coast
Beth is an outstanding realtor. She helped us sell two properties and combine two households into the perfect new space. The process was so smooth, and stress-free. She had answers to all our questions and really understood what we were looking for, from our time spent together. We felt reassured knowing Beth was there to negotiate the sales and purchase of properties that meant so much to us. Total Professional. If you want to feel like you're in good hands, definitely use Beth!
- Beth V., Single Family Home, Logan Square
Beth was the best choice for our family. She understood our needs, was always easily accessible, very trustworthy and knowledgeable about real estate dynamics. This was our second real estate experience with her and we were just as happy as we were the first time. House hunting with Beth feels like house hunting with a friend. We have recommended her to our friends and they were just as satisfied and successful in their hunt as we were. Go Beth!!
- Gargi B., Condo, South Loop
We have worked with Beth as buyers, sellers, and renters. She found a lot to build our home in our target neighborhood by our children's school. She sold our old home in under a week - totally unreal!!! Her staging advice I believe made a big difference in the home's marketability. She is on top of everything while at the same time creating a sense of ease throughout the entire process. Beth is direct with her advise, knowledge, and overall approach. Thank you for helping my family!
- Single Family Home, Ukrainian Village
Beth helped me through both the purchase and sale of my condo and she was amazing! I have a business background and always love to see statistics/numerical evidence that I am making a good decision. Beth was the perfect agent for me. When I was looking to buy my condo, she came prepared to our first meeting with tons of data, and this continued throughout my condo search. She was also extremely patient with me and did not try to hurry me through the process just so she could get her commission. She truly earned my trust. Since then, I have recommended her to numerous friends who have loved her, and I used her to sell my condo when my husband and I decided to move out of state. Again, she came loaded with data and was very patient to make sure that the sale price we agreed on was a price that we were happy with. I can only hope that I can find a new agent just as trustworthy and intelligent in my new city.
- Caryl E., Condo, Bucktown
My wife and I were fortunate enough to have Beth first as a landlord, and second as a real estate agent. As a landlord she was extremely responsive and understanding. She was an easy choice when deciding who we wanted as a Realtor. During the home buying process Beth was supportive, flexible, responsive, and highly knowledgeable. After a few conversations and viewings she was able to pinpoint exactly what we wanted but never pressured us during the entire process. She knows the Chicago landscape extremely well and was the perfect agent. We loved working with her and always enjoyed our time together. A year after living in our home we asked for market analysis reports and she responded right away and set up automatic reports for us. She is amazing and we would highly recommend Beth to anyone.
- Mike E., Condo Ukrainian Village
Beth brought us the perfect buyer for our condo in the Ukrainian Village. She was meticulous in her attention to detail, always accessible if we had any questions or concerns, and her professionalism and support throughout the entire process was remarkable. I would highly recommend Beth to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Chicagoland area.
- Andy F., Condo, Ukrainian Village
Beth is a truly fantastic agent! She was an invaluable resource to us as first-time home buyers. We felt immediately comfortable with her and she quickly assessed and understood our needs. She was so patient and honest with us when viewing prospective homes, sincerely wanting us to find the right match. She guided us through the home buying process from beginning until end and has a great network of folks in the industry to refer. We have in turn referred her services to our family members who have since closed on a condo with her as their agent as well
- Donna D., Single Family Home, Logan Square
Beth is an excellent agent who really understands what client's wants and needs are. She's a good listener who easily hones in on their priorities.
I'd highly recommend her to a potential client!
- Tina L., Single Family Home, Old Irving
Beth is the ultimate professional and made our home buying experience stress free which is no small feat in such an important and personal transaction.
- Roger S., River Forest
Beth was extremely knowledgeable and helped to guide us through our first home buying process with ease! She provided us with the necessary information and went above and beyond. She has a great rapport with local realtors and knows the area well. Beth was able to provide great insight into the home buying process, and help us to find our perfect fit!
- Single Family Home, East Ukrainian Village
Beth really impressed me during negotiations. I thought we were done negotiating, but she thought we could go a little further... and she was right. Beth was very patient as I, a first-time home buyer, learned the ropes of purchasing a condo. She taught me a lot, even after we put my search on hold for a few months over winter. Overall, I felt very fortunate to have the team I did during my first time buying a home. Beth, along with Cynthia, were the first people who really helped me with my search and Beth subsequently made wonderful recommendations for both a mortgage broker as well as an attorney, which made me feel like I had the "Dream Team.”
- Renee P., Condo, Lakeview
Beth was wonderful to work with! She helped us tremendously as first time home buyers and guided us through the process with ease. She was very knowledgeable both about home buying and location, and provided us wonderful service, even when we hit a few bumps in the road. Beth was able to help us narrow down our search to find a perfect fit!
- Laura P., Condo, East Village
As a first time buyer and life long wanderer deciding to buy a condo was way outside my comfort zone. A friend of mine had recently moved and introduced me to her realtor, Beth. I decided to look cautiously and would be ok if I ended up walking away. Beth made the whole experience pleasant; there was no pressure, it was clear she had an eye for detail, wasn't afraid to ask questions and had her clients' best interest at heart. When I was looking into more up and coming neighborhoods she gave me tips like taking a cab through the neighborhood late night to make sure I would be comfortable living there. She had strong opinions on garden units, and a sharp understanding of pricing and negotiation. I actually ended up putting an offer on a place site unseen when I was traveling. She looked at it for me, provided a fair review and managed me through the offer process via email. I'm a month into my new condo and absolutely love it. I'm still in contact with Beth for recommendations on insurance, a cleaning service, etc. All of the contacts a first time home owner would never think to have. She's got it all!

"In reviewing properties, Beth asked the right questions initially to
determine my preferences so that no time was wasted on my part in
viewing potential sites. She's quite pleasant, honest and will provide
you the analysis required to find a great match based on your needs.
She's also very accommodating - willing to meet based on my schedule. I
highly recommend her services!"
- Colleen Dolan
"We contacted Beth to help us with buying our first home. Throughout the
entire process she offered great advice and was always quick to respond.
Beth set up showings for us all over town, accommodated our crazy
schedules, took the time to review every contract, document and process
with us in detail, and quickly got a sense of what we were looking for.
She was able to answer a wide variety of questions and helped us through
the negotiation process. Beth has a strong knowledge of the Chicago
market, and was always able to ask the right questions.
Beth's services were invaluable. We are in love with our new home!!"
- Allison Crump
"Beth helped me and my wife sell our home. She made some key
recommendations that made the sale happen. She was very patient with us,
and her knowledge of the local market was a great benefit. Would work
with her again in an instant!"
- Ryan and Rachel Blackburn
"I am a first-time seller that lives on the West Coast, so needed an agent who was patient, organized, proactive, and could work with me remotely in addition to a tenant. Beth exceeded expectations on all accounts - she was incredibly clear about the process (documents, timelines, etc.), was very proactive about communicating with me throughout the process, handled the tenant, coordinating showings with prompt updates on feedback, etc. and then managing the closing process once we found a buyer (which I think happened within a week or so of listing!). I just closed two weeks ago, and thanks to Beth prepping me on everything, we had NO issues with closing - smooth sailing. Thank you, Beth."
- Kristin Gallagher
"I have known Beth Gomez for the past five years. She showed an apartment I was interested in. I was then so impressed by her, her knowledge and process expertise, as well as her attractive personality, that I recommended her to several friends and acquaintances, including the owners of the house in which I live now, They retained her as their real estate agent. She has since very successfully worked with them on two major transactions. In addition, I was able to observe her close cooperation with another acquaintance that required great patience and resourcefulness, understanding of the client's need and good cheer. Beth Gomez is assisting me as well in finding an apartment, and I have nothing but praise for her local knowledge, willingness to be flexible, and responsiveness."
- Brigitte Treumann
"Beth was invaluable in assisting our family with finding our dream home. Beth worked with my wife and I to rationalize and zero in on the perfect property by listening to our requirements and showing us thoughtful and creative housing solutions. She provided great energy and insight to our housing search and our family couldn't be happier with our new home purchase. Additionally, she and her partner Julie facilitated the sale of our previous property w/ less than 7 days on the market while making the whole process seamless and worry free. Beth is a great resource to have on your side as you negotiate the real estate market and I can't recommend her strongly enough."
- Mike and Sarah Mercurio
"Beth and her partner Julie helped my husband and I buy our first home. She was very patient and encouraging, despite our rather short amount of time we had to find a place. She explained the entire process to us in great detail and was happy to answer any questions we had, and was very accommodating when we needed to visit a home in the middle of the day or late afternoon, which was excellent for our busy schedules! Both she and Julie were certainly pleasures to work with."
- Katie and Bryan Jackson
"My husband and I relocated to Chicago from out of state, and were also first time homebuyers. Without Beth's expertise and dedication I don't know how we could have done it! We were on a strict timeline and Beth listened to our needs, helped us find both the perfect neighborhood and condo that fit our needs. She was so patient with us, always available and responsive, and gave us market/neighborhood knowledge that was invaluable. She has the highest levels of honestly and integrity, and is a pleasure to work with! I would not hesitate to recommend Beth to friends and will definitely be utilizing her in our next move! We could not be happier in our new home!"
- Jane and Jimmy Long
"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!"
"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."
"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 thanKRGto 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."
