Michelle Gassensmith

President | Trusted Real Estate Advisor

Lifelong Illinois resident Michelle Gassensmith closed more than $60 million in real estate over the past four years and is consistently a top performer in the Chicago area. She was recently named as a Top Agent in McHenry County through the Chicago Agent Magazine. What is most impressive about Michelle, however, is not her numbers or accolades, though there are many! It is the network of friends, contacts, and happy clients left in the wake of her genuine real estate service.

Integrity is of the utmost importance to Michelle; she’s thorough, thoughtful, tuned in, and with her clients until the end. If you ask her clients to describe her, they’ll say she’s highly professional, knowledgeable, and honest. And Michelle ​always​ calls right back; she is not just buying and selling homes, she’s building new friendships. Her diligence and loyalty have consistently landed Michelle among the top real estate agents in the Chicago metropolitan area. Before starting the Gassensmith Group, Michelle worked in an office of over 60 agents and ranked in the top five years after year for sales. In 2017, she was #2; in 2018 she was #1. In 2019, she briefly worked for Keller Williams Success Realty, where she was awarded their Gold Star Ranking. Chicago Agent Magazine​ has recognized Michelle as a top real estate agent in the area for several years running, and her clients nominated her for a Five Star Award for service and professionalism.

Michelle loves to guide clients through the process of buying or selling their homes and understands the gravity of that transaction. She especially enjoys working with first-time homebuyers. She will hold your hand, and truly care about your emotional well-being every step of the way. Home buying is much more than a transaction, and no one caters to that as Michelle does.

When she’s not working, you will find her outside walking, reading, cooking, or catching up on the latest Netflix original series with her husband of 30+ years, enjoying their new chapter of life as empty nesters!

Michelle is an incredible realtor. She helped us buy in this crazy market, and sold our house in record time! From time we listed the house to time we received the offer we accepted, it was less than 24 hours.

I’ve had the opportunity to work with Michelle and her agents and they are amazing at what they do. The Gassensmith group is very well known in the community, and believe in giving back. It’s such a pleasure working with the Gassensmith group. There is a reason they are the best in their industry.

Michelle was a complete pleasure to work with! She went out of her way to accommodate us. When we were busy at our jobs and simultaneously trying to handle our closing, she was always looking ahead to make sure we knew the next step, and to help assure we weren't forgetting anything. She was a godsend. I'd recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!! Bill LeBeau

Michelle has been great to work with. She is very responsive and always available to answer any questions we had during the home buying process. She also provided excellent contacts to work with for a lender and attorney. Since she works with them often, it made the entire process so much easier! Thanks Michelle for helping us find our new home!
