I have lived in the Chicagoland area with my family for the past 17 years. During that time, I completely gutted and rehabbed two of my homes and was the general contractor on one of them. My extensive knowledge of the area and experience with updating older homes makes me the perfect choice as a Broker and advocate for you. I have learned what an “easy fix” is and what pitfalls may be too costly.I grew up in the Real Estate business. I can remember guessing prices of houses with my sister at a very young age. I love the business and the thrill of the moment a client finds their new home. I believe being an excellent Broker entails guiding my clients through the entire process of buying or selling their home and being a support every step of the way.In addition to my personal experiences, I also hold a communications degree from Loyola University and previously worked at a downtown advertising agency. My professional marketing skills combined with home building and area expertise, will give you a distinct advantage when buying or selling with me.This is a great time to consider buying or selling. Interest rate are low, homes are selling quickly and with multiple offers. Limited inventory and increasing home values are proof that the housing market is on the rebound!Please contact me if you are considering buying or selling a home. I can provide a free competitive market analysis to let you know the current market value of your home and sign you up for daily MLS updates so you are first to know what is on the market. I hope to hear from you soon!
Testimonials: I purchased a 100 year old LaGrange home from Amy Rudolph in July of 2012. Myself having a background in new construction, I was very weary of buying an older home. That fear soon left me when I first walked thru her home and property. Amy had purchased the home in 2006 and had performed a complete gut and remodel job that was comparable to many of the luxury, high end single family homes that I have built thru-out Hinsdale area and the surrounding suburbs since 1997. Her attention to detail and her ability to accomplish the same type of finishes that I was used to executing in my new construction projects within the structure of a 100 year old home was so impressive that I earned a new respect and admiration for her hard work and determination to see a project thru based on her individual vision. I was also impressed with her knowledge of the surrounding real estate market, which I attribute to Amy having been raised in the Western Suburbs and her first-hand knowledge of the costs associated with the construction and remodeling of single family homes in the Western Suburbs. Amy is a person I trust and whose opinion I value in the West Suburban real estate market.

I can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed working with Amy! She was incredible in every step of the home buying process. She went above and beyond to accommodate our schedule and made herself available 24-7 (even on Christmas Eve!) She worked tirelessly to find us the perfect home and helped us to negotiate a great price. I would highly recommend Amy to anyone looking for a home in the western suburbs.Kristen & Patrick – Amy sold our first home for us and it was a great experience. We were nervous and did not know what to expect. She eased our worries by walking us through the entire process. She was supportive, helpful and available every step of the way. She also helped us buy our new home. Amy showed us houses in several suburbs and successfully guided us through a multiple offer situation. We got the house we wanted and couldn’t be happier!Brian & Elizabeth
