Growing up in Lincoln Park and Old Town, Amy is a native Chicagoan who entered real estate in 2004 following a successful career in project management for a Fortune 500 company. After purchasing her first home in the Ukrainian Village, she immediately knew beginning a rewarding career in real estate was for her.

Her sales are approaching $50 million and her clients have awarded her the Five Star Agent certification, as seen in Chicago magazine, year after year.
Amy knows finding and purchasing a home is one of the most important financial decisions individuals make in their life. She understands whether you are a first-time homebuyer or seasoned buyer and seller the process can be overwhelming and stressful. Having a knowledgeable, trusted advocate and an accessible partner 24/7 along for the journey is a must.
Whether buying or selling, Amy provides guidance you need throughout the entire process to ensure your real estate goals are on track. She advises sellers on the appropriate pricing and staging of your home to sell it quickly and maximize your profit. She calls this equity through design. When purchasing, Amy sheds light on different neighborhoods or properties you may not have considered and studies the competition to ensure when it is time to write a contract, the purchase price represents an excellent value for you.
In addition to Lincoln Park, Amy has lived in Old Town, Wicker Park, Ukrainian Village, Old Irving Park, Evanston, and Wilmette. Amy currently resides on the NW side of the city in Edgebrook with her husband and two children.

“It is an honor and a privilege for me to assist clients in making their home dreams come true! I will be with you every step of the way, and my commitment to you will continue even after you have sold your home and/or found the perfect new place to call your own!”
I could not have been happier or satisfied with Amy's work in purchasing my first condo. Unlike some other agents I met with, Amy is involved with every step of the process and does not delegate work out to her team. Even with a busy client list, she made me feel like I was her top priority always replying in a timely manner. Amy also has a great personality which goes a long way when you're spending hours together looking at properties. As a first time buyer, Amy was everything I needed and more. I will definitely reach out buying/selling additional properties.
I moved from Chicago in 2013 and used Amy Oetter to help me find renters for my Albany Park condo. She made the process simple and easy, and seeing as I now lived 5 hours away, she went above and beyond what I would consider normal duties for a real estate agent. When those renters moved to Florida two years later, I again used Amy to find my second set of renters. Finally in the spring of 2017, when the housing market had bounced back enough, I decided to sell the condo, and Amy found me buyers within a weekâ?¦ at list price. There were a few odd details concerning my buildingâ??s management company, but Amyâ??s experience and close attention to detail helped me navigate though those issues and close the sale. Each of the three times Iâ??ve used Amyâ??s services Iâ??ve been more than pleased and found her to go beyond what I would have expected. Thank you, Amy!
Amy has been so helpful in guiding my husband and I through the home buying (and selling!) process. She's incredibly knowledgeable of the current market, has an excellent eye for finding great places that we would have never found on MLS on our own, and is always such a joy to spend time with, especially through the stressful process of buying and selling property! She introduced us to neighborhoods we otherwise wouldn't have considered and is a great listener when it comes to understanding what we have wanted in a home. I highly recommend working with her!
We have utilized Amy for purchasing two properties, one a rental property in 2010 and then in 2016 to purchase a single family home. Amy is knowledgeable, friendly and helps ease what is a very stressful process. We would highly recommend Amy to anyone!
Extremely helpful in our search. Would recommend to anyone.
My wife & I worked with Amy in 2014 to purchase our home. She was able to find dozens of listings in our selected areas which gave us tons of information to help make our decisions. We slated a review of 7 properties and found our dream house the first day of actually looking! Better yet - we were under contract within 7 days. The whole process - from listening to what we were looking for and recommending things we hadn't considered, to providing many options for us to choose form, to making the offer and going through the inspections and close - was simply amazing! I'd highly recommend Amy for your real estate needs.
Amy is amazing. She helped us sell our old home and buy a new home in record time. Her advice helped us get over our asking price for our sale. We recommend her to everyone. You really can't do better, and she is a super nice person to boot!
Amy was an absolute delight to work with! She was so patient with us as we found our first home. I think Amy and I looked at well over 30 properties (some more than twice!) before we landed on our condo in Old Town. Amy's energy and enthusiasm through the whole process was infectious - spending the day looking at possible homes was a blast, and once we found our perfect spot she was so clear and speedy with the whole process. She even followed up with a wonderful gift basket of treats and champagne. I recommend Amy highly!
Amy was great! She answered all of our questions, went out of her way to accommodate our schedule, knew what she was talking about, and was an guide and advocate for us at every step of this process. Highly recommended!
Working with Amy to find a home was an extremely positive experience. She showed us no less than 30 properties over 4 months and her enthusiasm never waned a bit. She really loves her job and it shows in her approach to helping clients find their next home. She's down-to-earth and was up front and honest about everything pointing out pitfalls and recognizing highlights we may have not noticed. She's familiar with so much of the city which saved us time researching each neighborhood we considered. I would recommend only her to anyone searching for a new place live. Thanks Amy!!
Amy is an excellent partner in finding the right property. Sheâ??s very collaborative throughout the search process and observant of things I liked with each property we saw. She works hard in the negotiation process and makes the entire experience simple and straightforward for her buyers and sellers. We have worked with Amy for 3 different purchases and 2 sales and have always appreciated her thoughtful approach and availability to help us sell our places for great prices and move onto the right property.
Patience, integrity and commitment. Amy always delivers through performance and values!
