Caroline Gau - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Just wanted to send you a quick note about the experience I had with Caroline Gau.

In all the years that I have been working with real estate agents and running a successful business I have never seen a real estate agent pay attention to details like Caroline. She was always attentive and always available to answer questions. In short she did an unbelievable job for me.

Jeffrey Gundrum

Caroline is very professional and helps make the purchase and sale of a home a smooth process.

She is constantly updating the status of her listings and the availability of homes to look at. I have used her for two sales and also the purchase of my home in 2016. She makes herself available and is wonderful to work with. I highly recommend her services.

Jeffrey Baer

Caroline was a fabulous ally through this whole process.

I met with her almost a year ago just to get an idea of what I would need and what to expect once I was ready to buy. There was no pressure, and she really educated me, even setting up a meeting with a mortgage broker to just explain the  various mortgage options available.I ultimately purchased a bank-owned foreclosure. I knew it would be a bit of a hassle, but Caroline made the process as simple as it could have been. She was knowledgeable not only about the process of buying itself (especially dealing with the foreclosure), but she was also amazing during the inspection. She recommended an excellent inspector whose references and online reviews were stellar, and as he found things, she was able to tell me what was really major, ballpark the costs for each possible issue, and help me prioritize all the things that would need to be done so I could more easily determine what was a deal-breaker and what wasn't.I cannot recommend her more highly.


We have worked with Caroline multiple times for over seven years, and we are always very happy to continue working with her.

Caroline is incredibly responsive in her communication and helpful throughout all stages of the process of buying and selling a home. She does a lot of market analysis research, gives great staging advice, and honest feedback about what is needed to sell a home. We will continue to give Caroline our business in the future!

Lara Stache & Rob Mangun

Caroline was our realtor when we purchase our house in Lake County years ago.

We were very satisfied with the whole process. She went beyond and above taking care of any concerns we had. We always go back to her asking questions or seeking assistance related to house maintenance and real estate trend.

Don Chen

Caroline Gau was recommended to us by our son-in-law, a mortgage broker.

Caroline was very patient with our indecision about what kind of new home we wanted: condo, townhouse or single family. Caroline was always very prompt to respond to any question or request for a showing. She was very organized in her approach and took time to explain all the many steps of the process. She was ready with references from home inspectors, to lawyers, to cleaning crews, to decorators. Caroline's caring, friendly, honest attitude made it a pleasure to work with her. ~Northbrook buyer 8/15/19

"Caroline was very responsive and organized.

She has a lot of experience and knows the area very well. She had a great understanding of what we were looking. She was very helpful in narrowing our search and only showing us homes that made sense for us."

"In her amicable and caring way, Caroline was a great advocate for us throughout the buying and selling process.

Caroline explained every contract detail and each step of the process clearly and concisely. She also has referrals for everything from, lawyers to electricians and even pool guys! We felt very comfortable knowing she was on our side taking care of the important details while we fell in love with our new home!"mgremail

Caroline is the best real estate professional we ever worked with!

She did everything in her power to make the process of selling our challenging property as painless as possible. In every step, Caroline used her professionalism, knowledge, and expertise to help us through the selling process. Our house was sold in a record time and for the most money, one can think of in today's market. We enjoyed working with Caroline - her attention to detail and willingness to help with every challenge was truly appreciated. As most people, we are very busy with our lives and Caroline made sure to take care of everything with minimal time commitments from our side. Thank you!

Lena Burlak

Caroline is a great realtor to work with.

She is very attentive and flexible to her client's needs. I trust her and put my faith on her for selling my property without my much involvement. Caroline worked tirelessly for selling my property. There were many buyer's interests and shows, and feedback she dealt with everyday because she did good campaign and marketing. Selling and closing process of my property went seamlessly. I would strongly recommend her as a realtor for your property sale.


Caroline Gau did a fantastic job of both selling our current home and helping us find the perfect new home for our family.

Caroline helped us overcome several hurdles to make sure both homes closed. She went above and beyond what was expected. Holly and Rov Baer

Robert Baer

We wish to express our profound gratitude for the fabulous job you have done both in selling our home and introducing us to our new home!

  You have put up with our 1001 questions with grace!  It has been a pleasure.  


Caroline was fantastic to work with.

She was very responsive and knowledgeable. We would use her, again, and recommend her to our family and friends. She helped us navigate our move to an area we were not familiar with. She took her time to get to know us and what we liked, then helped us find something that fits us.

Marty Daiga

Great Job!

Caroline handled the sale of a property in Glenview, going above and beyond what was expected. I live out of state and could only be in town sporadically. Caroline kept me up to date, communicated frequently, and kept an eye on the property better than any agent I have worked with. Any problems encountered, Caroline worked diligently to resolve. I would strongly recommend Caroline to anyone looking to list a home.

Marc Daubitz,

When we decided to sell our home we asked several of our realtor friends to suggest an agent to help us on this journey.

After interviewing four exceptional agents from three different real estate agencies, we had just one choice - Caroline. She was immediately personable, professional, informative and totally in sync with our vision of selling and buying at this stage in our life. She works for a great agency (Baird & Warner) and pushes the envelope on new and innovative sales strategies from eye popping brochures and welcoming open houses to popular web site placement and awsome drone pictures. From the start it was she who helped stage our home (she is an accredited Staging professional) and she who led us through tough negotiations on both sides of the sale (buyer and sellers - she is a certified negotiation expert as well). She has a great attitude and her love for the best outcome is apparent throughout the process. Thank you Caroline for all of your help and support in selling our family home of 26 years and finding our new family home for the coming decades.

Top 4 adjectives for Caroline: organized, reliable, good communicator, and gets the job done.

Excellent knowledge of our market and appropriate pricing.

Andrew Kushner

"Caroline Gau is everything you could want in a realtor.

She is extremely knowledgeable, detailed, honest, connected, savvy with negotiations, and to top it off, a genuinely kind, wonderful person. She helped my family sell a home during a challenging time and went above and beyond to be available to us and helpful with things like staging recommendations and contractor services. Our home sold very quickly on the Coming Soon network for the price we wanted, and because of Caroline, the whole process from start to finish went smoothly and without any added stress. I would absolutely recommend Caroline Gau and call on her again in the future."dbobis240 Riverside Dr, Northfield, IL 60093


Caroline is a "pro's pro"-she really knows the market in Northbrook and was very detail-oriented and accessible.

She was with us every step of the way and was cool under fire.

D. Solomon

Caroline was a pleasure to have as my real estate agent.

She never left any questions unanswered and always responded promptly. I would highly recommend her. She came to our initial meeting with very helpful information and explained her process in a way the showed me her expertise in real estate. Her professionalism, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic were much respected and appreciated. I never felt that she was just trying to sell me a house, but that she was helping me to make the best decision for my family.

D. Blumenfeld

Caroline helped us find our new home, held our hands all the way through the process, and proved her worth in every way.

We highly recommend her and her services.


I cannot say enough to thank Caroline for her support during the sale of our townhouse.

We missed the pick of the sale season, the property was not in a perfect condition, etc. Then we took a risk of renting it out to buyers before closing. We had a lot of stressful moments. Caroline helped us to go through the whole process, recommended a wonderful lawyer. Both ladies showed the professionalism, respect and patience. We are glad that we choose Caroline as our agent.

Natalya Kolesnikov

We moved from out of state when relocating to the Chicago area.

From the get-go, we knew we were in good hands. Caroline set down with us and detailed what we were looking for in a house, such as location, schools, type of house and many other areas that were of paramount importance to us. After  the discussion, Caroline tailored the search to find "that home" which was made for us. We loved her responsiveness to our questions and concerns. She also was not afraid to inform us of potential pitfalls of certain homes that we would of missed by not being "in the business." These included but not limited to resale viability, builder reputation and reliability and how to negotiate on the purchase price just to name a few. I would recommend Caroline to any perspective home buyer. You are in professional hands and she can help bring peace and comfort to your home buying experience

I was far away in Franklin, Tn.

, far from Maple Avenue. I know Caroline went the extra mile to do the right things to sell the home. I highly recommend her and praise her efforts. Steve Lewis

Stephen E Lewis

Caroline was exactly the professional we needed to sell our home, and represent us when we bought our new home.

She is knowledgeable, professional and patient. She is a talented stager, and brought out the very best in our home without demanding that we do anything drastic. There were many uncertain moments between offer and closing, and Caroline handled every hiccup with grit and grace. When it came to buying our home, Caroline went above and beyond in presenting our offer, and saw everything through to a smooth and pleasant closing. Caroline is approachable and responsive, and will keep things sailing smoothly, whether you are selling or buying a home. She is a pleasure to work with!

E.B. - Northbrook

Caroline represented me on the sale of my condominium and was excellent.

She was detail oriented, thorough, professional and ethical throughout her representation. I would recommend Caroline to anyone looking for quality representation to buy or sell their property.

Michael Shifrin

Caroline went the extra mile to sell my condo.

The marketing was excellent and put my property out in front of others in my market. When the sale looked iffy, she fought for it to go through. Her hard work made the sale successful. This is my second time using Caroline, and I highly recommend her.

Alexander Wolf

We have worked with Caroline for both a purchase and a sale.

Caroline was very helpful in explaining and navigating the details of unusual purchase situations in both transactions. She provided us with sound advice for bids and offers and faithfully and promptly served as our conduit for communications with the other party. Both transactions proceeded quickly and smoothly and we would recommend Caroline as an agent for either side of your transaction.

J Farley

Caroline was extremely helpful throughout the process of buying my new home.

She worked around my schedule when showing me the houses I was interested in, and helped me determine what is was that I wanted in my home. She was supportive and patient, and when I was ready to make an offer, she helped me by recommending other professionals (movers, real estate attorneys, lenders) that she had worked with previously. Caroline is very knowledgable about the north suburban area and the homes that are available. Working with Caroline has been a pleasure, and I would highly recommend her to anyone moving!

Harmony Leiran

Caroline was incredibly responsive and patient with me as a first time buyer.

She took the time to answer all of my questions no matter how small. I felt confident with her on my team looking for my first home. Caroline offers extreme expertise in the local market which helped tremendously. My deal could not have gone any smoother and I have Caroline to thank for that.

Sarah Rustman

Caroline helped us buy our first home!

She was wonderful to work with. Caroline is experienced, trustworthy, very patient, and always prompt in answering our texts, emails, calls. Whenever we had a question she was quick to answer it, and reassure us of any concerns we might have had. She was a great fit for us and we are very grateful for all her help! We'll for sure recommend her to our friends and family!

Lavinia Pop

Caroline was excellent.

She knew our market up and down. She was able to help us stage effectively, as well as arriving at an appropriate listing price. We accepted an offer after 2 weeks on the market. Also, Caroline is well-networked in our area, which helped with communication with potential buyers and their agents.

Andy K

Hi Caroline,   Just a note to say that I am pleased that my daughter chose to work with you.

  It certainly was a productive Saturday when I was there and glad you scheduled the tour.   I think the apt is exceptional and I am impressed with the listing and showings of her house as you will have input by this weekend on the response to the showings and my daughter is BUSY downsizing. I can’t imagine what I will have to do myself.   My daughter is very capable but you always need a professional to guide you. I feel good that we had the opportunity to meet.    


My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of working with Caroline.

She helped us find the perfect home. She walked us through the process of being a 1st time homebuyers and made things easy to understand. Caroline- we can't thank you enough, you rock!

Sanja Vidovic

Caroline gets high marks for responsiveness/service and she is forthright in her business dealings.

When we asked about staging, Caroline had professional stagers at our house the next afternoon with designer and a plan. She gave us good advice on all aspects of the selling process, and returned  texts and calls immediately.


I needed some real estate advice and called Caroline.

She was so nice and accommodating. She answered my questions and immediately send me the information I needed. I have been a customer service supervisor in my past career. And while "customer service" seems like a common buzzword among businesses and organizations today, it has been my experience that truly great customer service is rare. But Caroline exemplifies true customer service. She would be the person to go to to handle any real estate sales and transactions. she is efficient, knowledgeable, and and caring, three attributes that a real estate estate professional needs to be able to help their clients accomplish their goals.
