Client Testimonials
"Tom Makinney is an incredibly-professional and knowledgeable real estate agent who is an absolute pleasure to work with. He knows a great deal about the market and brings that knowledge to the house-buying process. He has enviable follow through and is very responsive. He also is extremely tenacious and works hard for his clients. Most impressive is Tom's ability to match his clients with houses, even when a match isn't immediately apparent. Plus, Tom is just a really nice person who is a pleasure to be around. I can recommend Tom, without reservation, to anyone looking for a professional Realtor." - Kristi T.

"We purchased a home in Glen Ellyn through Gracik Makinney in May of 2010. We had a specific kind of property in mind and a long list of 'must haves'. Tom worked patiently with us to find exactly the right property at a price we could afford. We were first time homebuyers, and he went above and beyond in terms of guiding us through the 'murky waters' of the purchase process. I can't recommend this group enough. If you're upfront with them about what you want and what you can spend, they'll find your dream house for you."   - Ben E. - Glen Ellyn, IL 


Maria’s attention to our needs and best interest from our first meeting all the way through to closing was unsurpassed!! We could never have gone through this process without her!! Thank you.


I have worked with Tom for many years and find his competency, intelligence and professionalism to be without question or exception. I strongly recommend Tom.


My wife and I have hired Tom for his services on more than one occasion with awesome results. We feel we have a winner in our corner with him! Tom and I also work together with home buyers and sellers. I am a mortgage loan officer financing homes, and our clients share very positive feelings about Tom with me every time. A good man.


You did an excellent job in selling our house in a tough market. Your advice was spot on and you really understood the area. I would definitely use your services again. 


I worked with Tom and Maria as my real estate agents as my family and I started our search for a home. Being from Indiana, I needed someone very knowledgeable about schools, neighborhoods, and pricing. Tom and Maria consistently over-delivered by providing in-depth information on each house and its neighborhood. They helped us greatly in narrowing down our choices and options. I would absolutely work with Tom and Maria again and recommend their services.
