Buying a home is stressful and doubly so if, like us, you are moving from out of state and don’t know the area. What you want in those situations is a real estate agent who can listen, explain, work remotely, and then be there on the ground when you need her. Amy was all those things and more. Not only was Amy a consummate professional—always available, up to date, and on the ball—she went above and beyond to ensure that, in the very short time we had to move, we found a house that was perfect—not for some other family—but for us. Amy's commitment to us made that possible. We can say without question that we got our house because Amy was willing to do legwork—calling the city, tracking down old records—that other agents didn’t and we are grateful to her for that. And even after our home was purchased and the transaction complete, Amy was still there for us to recommend companies and contractors to do the necessary things to make this new house our home. We can’t say enough good things about Amy. If we ever buy or sell another house in the area, Amy will be our first and only call and you would be wise to do the same.

In my 30 years of real estate investing I have worked with numerous realtors. Amy Guskiewicz is a must have on your team whether you are buying your home or investing. She is knowledgable, responsive and keeps the piece parts of your transaction flowing. Best of the Best, without question.
-- Alison L.
Amy is absolutely amazing. She helped me buy and sell my condo. The process went smoothly both times and had good outcomes thanks to Amy. Her familiarity with the area allowed her to make great suggestions for pricing and knew who to call for all the moving parts involved in preparing a condo for sale. I cannot recommend her enough whether you are looking to buy or sell. Amy is wonderful to work with, and I would only use her for my real estate needs in North Carolina.
-- Emily H.
Amy is a top-notch realtor. She was always available to answer questions or to meet and chat to help calm the nerves of this first-time home-buyer. She was always willing to offer her advice and feedback, but also made sure I always knew this was my decision overall. I highly recommend anyone looking for a great home to contact Amy!

My son was accepted into UNC Dental School so my wife and I had a decision to make; search for an apartment to lease or look to purchase a home or condo. Where to start? We live 3 hours west of Chapel Hill and since this area has grown leaps and bounds from our college years, we knew the task that lay ahead would be a daunting one. We were very fortunate to find Amy Guskiewicz via referral from a friend of ours who has lived in Chapel Hill a long time. Amy is a delightful agent to work with, guiding us every step of our journey. Locating properties based on our conditions, weighing the benefits/costs of each. Assistance with purchase offer, due diligence and overall guidance from start to finish. We found her advice to be insightful and were equally impressed with her timing and instinct. I would recommend Amy to anyone who appreciates the efforts of a consummate professional in real estate. She is a pleasant and patient individual. It was clear from the beginning that Amy put our interests ahead of her own, delivering a positive, memorable customer experience with each visit , phone call, text, email, etc. from start to close. We look forward to working with her again in the future. Matt Bright

Amy was a wonderful and knowledgeable realtor. She knows the area well and helped us find an area that we loved! We could reach her every time we needed her. She knew how to set us at ease about the whole process! She didn’t mind showing us any house we wanted to see! She made a difficult process seem easy! We loved working with her!
-- Catherine S.
Amy Guskiewicz is competent, professional, and thorough. I have worked with many fine real estate agents, but Amy goes the second and third mile, doing whatever it takes to make the deal. I was looking for a very specific kind of house in an historic neighborhood. For two years she tracked down possibilities and opened doors for me. Sometimes she made creative suggestions. Other times she warned me of insurmountable obstacles. Finally, we found the right property, but we had to jump through hoops to close. She never faltered. She never demurred when asked to do inconvenient and irritating tasks. Over and over, she did whatever was required, regardless of how tedious or daunting. Steve and I are most grateful.
-- Drucie F.
We had the good fortune of being referred to Amy when we decide to relocate from PA to NC. Amy worked with us prior to our house hunting trip so that she had a very good idea of what we were looking for in our new home. She was able to help us find the perfect home in a weekend trip! Amy went above and beyond when we decided to make an offer on a home on a day she had planned to take a vacation day. Because we were making this purchase from another state Amy served as our local contact helping to arrange and attend the home inspection. She even sent us progress photographs as the house was being completed. We have been in our new home for two weeks and are very happy with our purchase. Amy’s professionalism made the process easy and less stressful even during a hurricane.
-- Lisa A.
We had the pleasure of working with Amy for both a purchase and a sale during a very active spring season. Amy guided us through the process, was always very professional, always responsive, and always had some great ideas that were helpful beyond measure. I would consider her to be top notch in every way and, on top of that, just very nice and positive to work with, even during challenging times (she is a great trouble shooter, which is kind of key for this profession!) We highly recommend Amy.
-- Janice/Jeff B.
Our experience buying a home -- the first home we have ever owned -- with Amy Guskewicz was nothing short of amazing. From our first casual conversation about the home buying process we knew we wanted to work with Amy when it came time to really start thinking seriously about making a home purchase. From the beginning Amy told us how she believed her job as a realtor was to work to educate home buyers and sellers on their homes, the market, and their options. Amy’s patience, kindness, and understanding from years as an elementary school teacher came in handy when she decided to take us on as clients! As first-time home buyers, we came into this process with a plethora of questions, many of which seemed silly to us at the time. Amy was endlessly kind and responsive to our questions, and would often get back to us in a matter of minutes, even well after normal business hours. In the rare event that Amy didn’t immediately know the answer to one of our questions, she would have an expert answer within no more than one business day. Our experience of buying our home was an unusual whirlwind -- we bought the very first home we visited! In the end, we couldn’t be happier with our home and we couldn’t imagine going through the process without Amy as our realtor. When it's time to sell this home or buy another, Amy Guskiewicz will be the first person we call!
-- Justin and Gia H.
When we decided to relocate to Chapel Hill, we were thrilled! And then terrified by real estate questions: where should we live, where is the best school district and how could we possibly figure this out, as non-local first-time homebuyers? Especially in this meteoric and insanely difficult housing market for buyers. Amy was our life saver! She gave us excellent guidance and deep knowledge about a wide range of homes that we looked at. Amy is highly experienced and can provide information on everything home-related: from inspection to internal design - just ask Amy! Particular high points were helping us navigate a challenging seller while we were in the midst of handling a personal family crisis abroad. Amy showed sensitivity, creativity. and volunteered her time on endless occasions to help in everything she possibly could throughout all of this. It was a crazy ride, but we were able to buy a beautiful home in our price range and even in the neighborhood we loved the best! We definitely could not have done this without Amy. It doesn't matter if you are a buyer, seller or renter - if you want the best - you will find it in Amy.
-- Ronit F.
I could not have asked for a better real estate agent than Amy Guskiewicz! The time came this summer to prepare to sell my townhouse (the first property I ever owned!) and the success of this process was largely due to Amy's professionalism, attentiveness, energy, and positivity! Not only was she an excellent advisor in guiding us DIY-ers on the priorities to prepare the house for the market, but she was two steps ahead throughout the whole process, making sure that we hit our goal for listing timeframe. She was patient with our MANY questions, and always responded to texts, phone calls, and emails quickly and efficiently (even on weekends and holidays!). Not only that, but she was supportive and creative in her strategies to help us reach our goal. She even went over-and-above during the closing when I had to be out of town for work! For a young soon-to-be-married couple, she made the process as stress-free as possible and was an absolute joy to work with from start to finish! I cannot thank Amy enough for working with us. Not only is she a class-act realtor (who we will continue to use whenever the time comes again!), but a kind, genuine person who truly cares about the people with whom she works! Do yourself a favor and work with Amy for your real estate needs - she's top-notch!
-- Laura S.
Our family has known Amy and her family for many years. When it came time to begin a search for investment property where our 2 oldest children could live while attending UNC-CH, Amy was eager to help. Although we have been home-owners for years, this was the first time we had ever ventured into investment property. Amy was persistent in her quest to find us options that met all of our needs. Finding a modestly priced home in this area can be a challenge in and of itself yet Amy seemed to uncover many options. She was very patient with our laundry list of questions and concerns and walked us successfully through the process. We can think of no better person to turn to or recommend should you be looking to buy or sell a home in the Chapel Hill area. We already had a friend for life, now we also have a realtor for life.
-- Ellen & Pat R.
Our family struck gold with Amy during a difficult time that required quick action and expert advice. Amy is exceptional. She delivers personalized attention, expertise and support and is the most client-focused, knowledgeable realtor one could ask for. There is no one quality that makes a realtor exemplary. It is a role that requires a range of skills and Amy has all of them. She is quick, accessible, responsive, and knowledgeable as all get-out and is beyond adept at navigating all aspects of selling or purchasing a property with her client's goals and well-being and best interests always center-stage. Securing or purchasing the right property for her client's needs is her focus. And she delivers! She remains accessible both throughout and beyond the signing of any agreements or papers. She remains every client's best advocate by providing her expert counsel as long as needed to assure her client's needs are fully met, that their decisions are well-informed and their options are always fully understood. She is a realtor who cares deeply about people, as individuals. She uses her role to advance their long-term well-being, financial planning, goals, needs and security.
-- Wendy B.
Amy is one of the most professional individuals I have ever worked with. My elderly mother was in a situation where we had to sell her condo very quickly and move to a situation which better suited her lifestyle. Amy gave us constant advice and guidance throughout the entire process. Her attention to detail, her effortless organization skills, and her genuine concern for the well being of her clients was extremely impressive. I could not manage working with a better realtor in any situation. She is a true professional!
-- John K.
Our family could not have asked for a better real estate agent than Amy Guskiewicz. We were first-time buyers relocating to Chapel Hill from another state. Amy saw us through the entire process and was incredibly personable, genuine, trustworthy and thorough. She collaborated with us to narrow our search, hone in on what we were looking for, and find something very quickly! Amy was lovely to spend time with, and knows the whole area very well. She always gave us an honest opinion whenever we asked. Amy helped us coordinate the purchase from out of town, find local professionals as needed, and even checked in on our house for us multiple times after closing to ensure all was well before our move. Most importantly, Amy got us a good price on a great place – it’s the perfect home!
-- Mem W.
Amy was a dream to work with. She took us on as first time home buyers and supported us from the initial phone call to the purchase of our new home. She never hesitated to go the extra mile when we had questions or concerns and was even available on nights, weekends and holidays! Amy operates with complete transparency and is not only willing to give her expert opinion, but also listen. She went to bat for us under some tough negotiations and never gave up, even when it came down to a matter of a couple hundred dollars. Amy was even patient on multiple occasions when we had to bring our twin babies along! I would fully recommend Amy to anyone looking to purchase a home. Thanks again Amy!
-- Megan D.
Amy is a very patient person. She showed us many, many homes before we found the right one. She was always quick to respond to any questions or concerns and was extremely helpful in every aspect of the home buying process. She is a true professional. I would definitely use her services again in a heartbeat.
-- Kurt M.
All I can say is that Amy really is the best realtor I have worked with. Since my transition from the UK, I have had the pleasure of working with her twice – once to find my temporary rental property and the second time to find our dream home. Amy really seeks to understand exactly what you want in a home and the lifestyle you want to lead - she ‘got me’ in a short amount of time. Amy always had a finger on the pulse and as soon as suitable property came onto the market, she was exceptionally quick in communicating this to me. She is professional, reliable, effective, has a great network of colleagues she can put you in touch with, always working in your best interest and really nice! Without Amy, my partner and I would not have had the opportunity to live in a little piece of paradise. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Amy – in fact, I have been raving about her to everyone when I retell how we found the most amazing house in Chapel Hill!
-- Rishma S.
Amy was an invaluable resource for our home purchase. She was professional, timely, flexible with her scheduling, knowledgeable and extremely friendly. She asked all the right questions of us and of the seller's agents to ensure that all of our needs were met. She went above and beyond what I expected from an agent and I would highly recommend her to other homebuyers.
-- D. R.
Without a doubt, hiring Amy as our buyer's agent to help in the construction of a new home was one of the best decisions we've ever made. The process started as a search for an investment property in CH where Amy consistently was available and full of knowledge, and directions, including shortcuts, to various neighborhoods in CH particularly close to campus. The search turned into, at our request, 10 months of helping us walk-thru all the aspects of building a new home with the current property as the investment! Working abroad during the time frame added to the complexities of our situation, but Amy was flexible, willing to Skype and patiently send and re-send communications liaising with the builder to ensure all of our concerns and details were addressed. The builders' representatives, more than once, expressed their gratitude, and our good fortune, to be able to have her working for us. Close and post-close, Amy continues to be supportive, knowledgeable and helpful providing referrals and direction with everything from contractors to discounts on name brand appliances and a FM contact for a smooth transition on our future rental property. Without a background in real estate, we can not speak for certain on all the ins-and-outs of her work, but we're thoughtful about giving out praise where it is due, and in this case, we just don't see how you can go wrong with Amy. She will work with you to the "nth" degree with YOU in mind, always engaged and helpful.
-- Mary Ann B.
I have known Amy for ten years and could not think of any other person with the knowledge, drive, and personality to better suit my needs as a real estate professional. I now live in Florida and have been using my Durham home as a rental property. When it came time to sell, I knew I wanted to have Amy act as my agent, for I knew she would be diligent, tireless, and honest with me about needs and expectations. As you can imagine, there were many trials and tribulations throughout the process, in that I was trying to sell a house from three states away. Amy was able to nimbly juggle the representative from my property management company, the current tenants living in the property, all the showings, and the myriad of contractors hired to do the necessary repairs to the house. She handled all of it with an upbeat, positive attitude that alleviated all of my concerns from all the way down in Tampa. I cannot give a high enough recommendation for Amy. If you have real estate needs in the Triangle area, donâ€™t look any further. You wonâ€™t regret it, I assure you.
-- Steve Z.
Amy is outstanding. She is a person of integrity, character, and honesy, qualities you really want in an Agent. I sold my house from California where I had moved to and she organized and executed all the updates and last minute fixes that needed to happen before we put it on the market. She was available, proactive, diligent and helped me get multiple offers. I am grateful she was in charge!!
-- Nicole A.
Amy was a great resource for us as we were selling our property! She guided us through the entire process giving us confidence that we were making the right decisions at every step. She went above and beyond the basic process of posting and showings of the property. She worked to find different ways to make our property more attractive both in advertisement and in showing. I would highly recommend her as a seller's agent!

Moving a family of 4 from Europe to Chapel Hill (NC) is quite an adventure in and by itself. Not knowing the first thing about real estate in the US, we found buying a house a daunting task. Luckily Amy Guskiewicz made life very easy for us. With her experience and extensive network, she helped us to find the perfect house, connected us with other professionals involved in buying our new home and facilitated our move. Maybe most important to us was Amy’s availability. Despite the 6-hour time difference, she was readily available to answer our endless list of questions and took immediate action when needed. When we arrived in Chapel Hill the only thing we had to do was step through the door. Amy, thank you for making the transition to Chapel Hill smooth and enjoyable!
-- Theo and Renee D.
Dear Amy, Your expertise and professionalism in tending to our endless inquiries throughout the process, from the largest to most minute of details, and understanding in how to get the job done was exceeded only by your warm and gracious manner. By the closing, we felt you had become a part of Ale's new family in Chapel Hill, making it so much easier for to us to say goodbye to her this morning. We really felt like we had a partner in finding the best place for our daughter, and deeply appreciate everything you did to help us make the home purchase process almost fun! All the best and keep up the good work. Barry and Adriana
-- Barry and Adriana M.
Amy made buying a condo a wonderful experience. I am moving from New England, and Amy provided all the local knowledge and referrals, coordinated viewings in a tight time-frame, and connected me to all the necessary parties to help move along the closing. She helped to make moving to Chapel Hill a pleasant and stress-free experience. I highly recommend her as a real estate agent.
-- Emily H.
Amy was incredible to work with while buying our home in Chapel Hill. She never once made us feel rushed during our search, even when we spent A LOT of time walking through houses over and over again! Amy always made time for us to see homes even on very short notice. She helped explain things to us using terms that we understood and ensured that we were comfortable with the decision we were making once we were ready to make an offer. After the offer was in, she checked in regularly with the seller's agent to make sure we were on track for a smooth closing, and always included us in that communication. Working with Amy was the best decision we made in the home buying process!
-- Ashley & Erik H.
We've worked with Amy on two occasions within the last few months and she has been great to work with. She goes above and beyond for her clients. We'd highly recommend her for those looking to rent, buy or sell. Very attentive, great communication and knows the area and market well. Thank you for finding us the perfect home.
-- Ashlee C.
Amy did a super job helping us buy our house. She was thorough, dedicated, and answered all of our questions throughout the process. She handled challenging negotiations with the selling party and delivered us a great result in buying. She knows the market well and I would certainly recommend Amy to others.
-- Andrew R.
I live in Seattle and owned a rental condo for many years in Chapel Hill. I tried, off and on, for years to sell it, using a couple of different realtors. For the last year, it was listed with Amy who was better to work with than any realtor I have ever worked with. She went far beyond what anyone would expect in a seller's agent, basically managing contractors and installers through a remodel, working with temporary rental tenants and providing excellent advice to me. I fully trusted her and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a residence.
-- Debi N.
I can't say enough great things about Amy and her performance as our selling agent. She was very knowledgable, caring, and meticulous. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an agent in Chapel Hill. Thank you Agent Amy!
-- J M.
Thank you so so very much for all of your help with finding both my house and my mother's! Again and again you went above and beyond our expectations and were always available to answer our questions and make the process as painless as it could be. We had a lot of opinions and you were very kind and patient with us. It's not easy to relocate to a new state 1000 miles from home, but you helped it not seem so daunting. We couldn't be happier in these new homes and with your help. Thank you again from the both of us!
-- Katelyn K.
This is our 7th home purchase; and our first in North Carolina. Thank you Amy for making this the most worry-free, stress-free purchase we've ever had. Amy found our perfect home. She was detailed, thorough and always looked out for our best interest. This was the most wonderful experience, and by far the best!
-- Cindy E.
We have a long history of corporate relocation, and have purchased homes in five states now. We honestly can say that Amy Guskiewicz has been the absolute best realtor we have ever worked with to help us find a home. Amy was always courteous and obviously cares a great deal for her customers. Her response time to mundane questions a buyer often asks were responded to immediately every time! We cannot say enough to praise Amy's dedication to get the job done, from start to finish. David and Linda Whitehouse
-- David W.
We can't recommend Amy enough. She was there for our family every step of the way and made us feel like part of her family. As a former school teacher in the area and a mom herself, Amy's first hand knowledge of the community and schools was amazing. This was our third home buying experience and by far the most enjoyable and efficient.
Erik & April Wikstrom
I would highly recommend working with Amy Guskiewicz. She has an expansive knowledge of Chapel Hill and surrounding areas, is very quick to respond, and is an absolute pleasure to work with. – Dan
Working with Amy was a delight. We were first time homebuyers and were very uncertain about what to expect. Amy listened, explained each step to us along the way, and ended up helping us find the perfect place. There were so many new things to learn, but Amy was able to guide us through the process to help us feel successful. We had a vision of what we wanted, and Amy was able to translate those wishes into the ideal home. Amy is the first person you should turn to when looking for your first or next home. - Jess and Andrew
We were new to NC and Amy helped us find and purchase a Chapel Hill townhouse. She was a delight. It was so refreshing to work with someone who was so good about always quickly returning phone calls and emails. She did a wonderful job of helping us learn the
Chapel Hill market and guiding us through the buying process here in NC. Amy really listened to us and what we wanted in a home, and directed and redirected the search accordingly. After we found our new home, it was a huge help that Amy knew the local area
so well and was able to recommend stores and trades people for the things we needed. We highly recommend Amy!- Barb and Mark
It was a pleasure working with Amy to find our dream home. She was highly recommended to us by close friends and definitely lives up to her great reputation. She really got to know us and what we were looking for in our property search. Amy was attuned to our needs and very flexible throughout the whole process. She checked in with us frequently and didn't rush us into making a decision. We are so happy we chose Amy as our realtor! - Sherry and Gideon
