    Giovanni Arenella

    I have been a Licensed Real Estate Agent since 2004 working throughout the Chicagoland area and including the surrounding suburbs working with sellers, buyers and investors. My market knowledge and experience has helped clients navigate what is often a complex process. With clients ranging from first-time home buyers to those looking to upgrade, sell or invest, my experience enables me to close on prime opportunities and strategically position and market properties to maximize sales. My skill at determining market value enables me to list properties at the highest possible price and to ensure that my buyers will not overpay.

    With having lived in the Chicagoland area for over 12 years and currently living in the Western suburbs my knowledge about the city and its unique neighborhoods enables me to hone in on ideal properties for my buyers and to negotiate the best possible result for my sellers. This in combination with my ability to truly listen to my clients needs. My dedication to helping my clients realize their goals, has earned me a reputation as a responsive, trustworthy and straightforward real estate professional.

    I am also the president and owner of Naples Remodeling, LLC. a general construction company specializing in remodeling of the REO properties purchased for my investor clients who benefit from my ability to anticipate the future value of improvements and to gauge rental income. We have reintroduced over 35 rehabbed properties back into the market in the last 4 years.

    I would recommend Gio to anybody. He will tell you the facts both good and bad, and knows what to look for. He is a great listener, and will work for what you want and need. While searching for our house, Gio was available at all hours of the day and night, and replied promptly to any requests we made. He's got quite the background in both contracting work and real estate, it felt like we had our own inspector with us on home tours. I learned something new each time we saw a home, and quickly learned that we were in very good hands.

    I went through 2 other brokers prior to Century 21. I found one to be way too pushy, inconsiderate and unethical and she requested a higher commission than the normal 6%. The other one was not very convincing of his real estate knowledge as he changed his "story" as to what would/might happen with the selling of my Mom's house too many times. I am not comfortable with a broker who is not confident in doing his job. After this, I was going to let the bank take the house back when my administrator at work referred me to Century 21 and this is when I met Giovanni Arenella. He was wonderful! He took the time to explain his work ethics/background to me and was very caring and understanding, knowing that selling my Mom's house was very emotional for my brothers and I (due to her passing). He earned my trust in him and I was more than comfortable with him handling the selling of the house. I was very stressed at times, and I truly appreciated his understanding and patience. He was very confident, knowledgeable and determined to take care of business all at the same time of being compassionate. I would definitely recommend Giovanni and Century 21 again ~ Eileen Murphy, Tinley Park (house was in Chicago)

    Giovanni was amazing through the whole process. Giovanni was quick to get us appts to view houses we were interested in. Sometimes within hours. Giovanni would be very detailed in giving us information re house. Giovanni would point out things that we wouldn't think to look at. Giovanni was always quick to reply and if he was in the middle of something, would let us know he would be replying soon. We never felt ignored. We just closed on Monday and called him for recommendations to update a few things, and he was quick to respond. Giovanni has also been quick to respond in giving us recommendations to make improvement in our home to get it ready to place on the market. It has been a great experience to work with him and will be working with him again once our current house is ready to be placed on the market. ~ Ricardo and Patricia Medina, Berwyn.

    We have used Giovanni for selling two of our properties in a span of two months. Giovanni was extremely helpful and provided great feedback to get the properties ready for a quick sale. He is prompt and responsive in his communication which is very important to us since we are out of state sellers. Giovanni helped us with the entire process, I would highly recommend Giovanni to everyone. ~ Vikram
    We were looking for a realtor who was familiar with Berwyn and understood the market. Giovanni was very helpful in guiding us through on what needed to be done to get the house to sell quickly. Since we are out of state Giovanni was very helpful in helping us with village inspection and compliance. He is very responsive and keeps the sellers and buyers best interest in mind. We would highly recommend Giovanni. ~ Shikha Chandra, Charlotte,NC
    Giovanni was very responsive, flexible and professional throughout our entire house buying process. He made himself available to us, even when notified at the last minute. He is very knowledgeable with the market, especially in Berwyn, and we appreciate his industry connections (i.e., inspector, attorney, lender). We give Giovanni our highest recommendation. Thanks, Gio! ~ Guy Affolaby, Berwyn, IL
    Well experienced real estate professional; very determined and committed to getting the best possible deal at the table; Giovanni went above and beyond to coordinate all parties involved in the deal to ensure a smooth transition. He educated me on the different processes, options available and next  steps to ensure my needs were met and I was completely satisfied with the proposed deal. From the initial walk-through of the home to closing Giovanni was there the entire time walking me step by step through the process. His knowledge and years of experience made a tremendous difference, I didn't need to do much research on my end because Giovanni was advocating on my behalf. Would highly recommend to anyone needing assistance in the real estate market for whatever need. Thank You Giovanni!! ~ Webster & Calumet Heights
    Made my first purchase smooth but most importantly very patient and not pushy like a lot of brokers. Understanding, highly recommend!!!! Awesome broker. Very patient and honest ~ Enrique in Chicago
    Giovanni is a straight shooter, he tells you like it is, professionally, but very kindly. He told us exactly what he could do for us, and did it. He returned phone calls, texts and emails on a timely basis even to ask if it was emergency or chat and if he could get back in hour let's say. I knew the minute I talked to him on the phone when I first called, he was the guy, anyone selling or buying should make him their guy too. Giovanni was very professional at all times and upon our first consultation had ideas and recommendations on ways to go to market and sell our house as quickly as possible, and for the most amount of money. He likes what he does for a living and he is awesome at it. Thank you Giovanni. ~ Debbie Rohde
    My mom and I greatly appreciate everything Giovanni did to help us find a home. Being a first-time homebuyer this process was already stressful. Giovanni was always there to answer any questions or concerns that we had and any home we wanted to see he would always have appointments ready to show us the home. He was very patient and understanding with us when we were looking at homes in many different areas because we did not know exactly where we wanted to purchase a home. Once we found a home he was always in contact with us to give updates and he was there with us through the entire process. ~ Daniela Ramirez, Cicero
    Giovanni contacted us after we had been looking at houses on Zillow. We met and he showed us some houses, at the time we were serious about buying, but didnt know if we would continue looking for an agent or what when we were going to our first showing. It became immediately clear that Giovanni knew the local area, as well as had in depth knowledge and advice about home ownership and house quality. We decided to stay with Giovanni after the first meeting. Giovanni was very responsive through phone, text and email throughout the whole process. He gave great advice, introduced us to knowledgeable and helpful mortgage brokers, attorneys and other services as our needs arose. ~ Greg Wade, Berwyn
    Giovanni was always accessible and very reliable. ~ Yanet cicero Il
    good realtor ~ Hedelita Montenegro 109 n.wynstone dr north barrington il 60010
