“Jami was recommended to me by my parents, they used her when they purchased their house and said she was great. She was my first phone call when i wanted to start looking at houses. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Would definitely use Jami and her sales team again!”

Eric Hanselman, 2021

“Adam is awesome to go see houses with, couldn’t have asked for a better agent. He was always available for questions and anything I needed he was there to help with plus he knew his stuff, it’s like walking around with a home inspector. Would highly recommend.”

Caleb Goetz, 2021

“Wendi was a lifeline throughout the process of buying our home. She made everything less stressful during a very stressful time. I just can’t say enough great things about working with her. We have our forever home and are just thrilled. We will recommend her to everyone we know looking for a home. Again, thank you Wendi!”

“Reagan was a critical asset in our house buying experience! Always available for questions and after months of visiting numerous homes in a number of different towns we finally found the place we would call home! She was there every step of the way ready to help anyway she could all the way to the end! Respectful pleasant and always polite she made this process enjoyable!”

Kim McFarland, 2021

“Working with Jami was an absolute pleasure. She was patient, responsive, polite, and had incredible knowledge of the local real estate market. As first time home buyers it was also very valuable to us that Jami took her time to explain things to us and point out things that we should be aware of. She was also very quick and efficient when it came time to make offers and always had documents ready to go in the same day. Jami shared the methodology of her research and helped us understand the dynamics of the local real estate prices. We highly recommend Jami, especially if you’re interested in learning throughout the home buying process, as she freely shares her knowledge which helps you to become an informed buyer.”

Jack Cloyd, 2021

“Jami Winchester and her staff are the best! They have been responsive and supportive throughout the entire buying process. Jami has provided excellent recommendations for negotiations and other professional services such as home inspections, etc. She has been able to answer every question I’ve had and shared knowledge on things I haven’t even considered. She is a true professional with a well-coordinated staff. They’ve ensured all deadlines were met and sent out prompt reminders with clear instructions for every step of the process. Her team also provided a free moving truck that can be requested. That alone saved me hundreds. As a first time home buyer as well as a veteran utilizing the VA home loan. She has far exceeded my expectations. I can confidently say she is military-friendly and the best choice for any first time home buyer.”

-Heriberto Rodriguez, 2021

“Jami stepped in as our agent when we thought we wouldn’t find the right house after looking for so long. Her expertise, experience and responsiveness was key to us finding the right house in the right area. Most importantly, she does what she says she will do.”

-Dave Helbling, 2020

“Jami is a gem in the Real Estate market around the Springfield, IL area. We were referred to her by a friend and within the period of three weeks, we found our ideal home. She was quick to respond and always ready to show the next home. She never made us feel guilty of the back and forth. She answered all our questions and kept us on track. If we had to do it again, it will be Jami Winchester. Thank you for your flexibility and professionalism.”

-Mckenzie Doe, 2020

“Nancy was a great help to my wife and I as we looked for a house during the COVID pandemic. Nancy is great to work with, super nice, friendly, knowledgeable and always available to help with whatever we needed! Highly recommend Nancy to anyone looking for a home!”

-Jonathon Craig, 2020

“If you need a realtor call Jami. If you have a realtor, call Jami and switch 🙂 . We have now bought 3 properties and sold 1 with Jami and her team and they are fabulous. We wouldn’t consider using anyone else. Right before COVID closed down in person showings, Jami ran over to a property and did a video tour for us the same day we inquired about it and we were able to secure a great deal. Call Jami – you won’t regret it!!!!”

-Brian Leady, 2020

“Last year (2019) we worked with Adam to purchase a new home. This year, we teamed up with him again to sell the house that we had moved out of and spent some time cleaning up and making “sale-worthy”. Throughout our fixing-up process, Adam remained quietly in the background, offering assistance for finding resources to complete the work we were doing, but not being obtrusive or pushy about listing. Adam helped us determine a fair market value for our old home based on area comparables. We paid to have our home pre-inspected in order to head off any unknown issues. We were glad to be able to fix the few things found, and the eventual buyers ended up using our inspection for their own, thus saving any us any surprises later. We listed our house for sale the week in March that Covid-19 restrictions hit in Illinois – not the ideal situation, to be sure. Adam and his team came up with solutions for showings to match the social distancing requirements. It took two months to get an offer, but we feel fortunate considering the circumstances, and that there were only few people who actually toured the house. Adam helped us navigate the sale process, even stepping in to personally help out when there were issues near the end of the deal, which we greatly appreciate. While our direct contact with Adam was limited due to the state of the world at this time, we still felt that we were in good hands. He communicated via texts, emails, and phone calls as necessary. We would also like to call attention to his assistant, Sara G., as she was a key part of the entire process. Her behind-the-scenes work should not go without recognition. We would definitely recommend Adam and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the Springfield, IL area.”

-Steve & Christy McGraw, 2020

“A phenomenal human being and an even better relator! Jami truly cares about the client and it shows. She took the time to show us multiple homes and made me feel as if I was her main concern at all times. If I had a question, concern or a new home to look at she responded instantly with passion and professionalism. If you are going through another relator, consider her instead. Truly the best realtor I’ve ever met or worked with.”

-Mamie Cole, 2020

“Jami was amazing. We were first time home buyers and while we had been planning this move and doing a lot of research preparing for the worst experience possible…. Jami completely took all the stress out of the process. She basically found the home, asked important questions to the current home owner, negotiated the price, determined the repairs and followed through that they were complete and was there in the final moments when we closed the deal to make sure we felt confident in our purchase. We went and viewed about 5 different homes and she was honest about the areas, what kind of work she could see the home needing and appreciating what we wanted in a home and how each place fit our criteria and reminding us what we would be giving up and gaining in each property. She seems to really know the areas around Springfield and Chatham. She was pretty spot on with the asking price we should propose which was nearly identical to what the bank ended up appraising our home to be. Her assistant was pregnant during the process yet she never missed an email and was timely with her responses. If she didn’t hear from us she would still check in by phone or mail just to make sure we were taken care of during the loan approval process and with each inspection report explaining what was going on. I never felt out of the loop! She was an absolute pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking in the Springfield Chatham area.”

-Chase & Katelinn Pierson, 2020

“My wife and I recently relocated to Springfield from out of state, and during COVID restrictions no less. Given our situation, our number one priority in a buyer’s agent was communication. Jami delivered! She was responsive and quick to set up virtual showings, and always kept us in the loop during the home buying process. We found a wonderful home, and we’re grateful to Jami and her team for helping to ensure that everything went smoothly.”

-Andrew & Kristin Miller, 2020

“Fantastic agent! Highly recommended! Always available and answered all the questions. Jami put always our priorities first! We definitely loved her ability to work very professional and to meet our needs! Thank you Jami!”

-Olga Lopez, 2020

-Steve Hemphill, 2020

“Awesome to work with, responsive, and extremely knowledgeable of local real estate market. Jami is no nonsense about finding the right house to fit your needs. She provided a lot of additional information about the city not related to purchasing a home. I would highly recommend her to anyone.”

-Michael Sartorius, 2020

“Jami is the best ever! We had her as our realtor and she made everything so easy for us even with us being first time home buyers. She is very responsive and answered every question I had. If you’re buying a house she is the realtor you need! The whole experience was great and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy a house!”

-Chris Tate, 2020

“We just closed on a house with Jami yesterday, February 3rd. Working with Jami was great. Sara and her took care of almost everything after we chose a house. Jami was quick to answer any questions and was quick to address any issues with the sellers agent. The moving truck was also a blessing. I would recommend Jami to anyone buying a house. Her knowledge of market prices and different loan types are invaluable!”

-Chris Brinkmeyer, 2020

“Jami was great to work with, very knowledgeable and professional. Whenever I had any question about the process of selling my house Jami knew the answer and always responded quickly. Jami made the process of selling my house easy and took all the burden off of me so I could concentrate of my family and work. I would highly recommend Jamie and her team to sell your house.”

-Darren Schulze, 2020

“Moving was so easy with the Winchester Sales Team. They took care of all paperwork and red tape. It was the best decision I’ve made concerning a move. Great team. I will recommend to all my friends and family.”

-Todd Stockton, 2020

“A joy to work with. I would work with Nancy again. She showed us different houses. She was available when we needed her. She negotiated to our specific requests.” 

-Shannon Green, 2020

“Highly recommend Jami! Our home sold in one day! She and her team were great to work with. Very responsive to questions or concerns. The moving truck she let’s a seller use is an incredible perk!”

-Dave & Vickie Bertetto, 2019

“Jami went above and beyond for my husband and I in our home search. After moving back in the area and trying to transition, it was a pleasure to work with Jami to find our current home. She helped us figure out what was most important to us in the home search and ultimately helped us find a great  home. This was all done in a very quick time frame, which was greatly appreciated as we were under a time crunch. After the purchase, Jami met us at the property so we could take measurements and view paint swatches. This is just one example of how extraordinary her level of service is to her customers!” 

-Andrew & Kiley Ramer, 2019

“From start to finish our experience with Jami Winchester and her sales team was outstanding! She is very knowledgeable about the market in this area and it really shows in her results. She was able to not only get our house sold after only 5 days on the market but also negotiated on our behalf to  get us what we needed after the initial offer! I’ve used a handful of Realtors in the past and Jami will be the only Realtor we personally use or recommend in the future to our family and friends. Plus she offers the use of a free moving truck for her clients that purchase within a 60 mile radius of Springfield. All you have to do is put fuel in it and that alone would’ve saved us over $350 from renting a moving truck from UHaul. I definitely wish we would’ve used her when we bought our new house last year but we know about her now and she’ll be the only Realtor we call in the future! THANKS JAMI!!”

-Kort Oldenburg, 2019

“Jami is wonderful! In our situation she was the realtor for both the buyer and seller and was great! Very attentive, responsive and knowledgeable. My husband and I definitely recommend Jami to anyone needing a realtor!”

-Adam & Nina Greenfield, 2019

-Steve & Pat Tatman, 2019

“Jami sold my condo in Chatham, and made the process smooth and stress free. I am grateful for Jami and her professional team who helped me with this process. I would whole heartedly recommend Jami and her team to anyone thinking about selling or buying a home in the area!”

-Nick Bond, 2019

“In saying this I represent my husband and I both. Adam was awesome in helping us find the right house. Very caring. Always took what we wanted as first time home owners and what we needed as parents of small children in consideration. He knew what areas of town were best whether it be the school  district, the road the house sat on, and what the neighborhoods were like. It never felt like Adam was never pushy toward any one house. I would and will recommend him to anyone and everyone that is looking to buy a house. Huge thank you to Adam Bugos!”

-Adam & Katie Goetz, 2019

-Sara & Tim Teeter, 2019

“Jami and I have been through a few real estate ventures so there is no other realtor I would rather work with. She showed me several homes and when I decided which one, she keep me informed on every aspect of the process. She was able to negotiate a fair price. Jami was professional, answered all  my questions no matter how minute. She eased any fears I had. Her staff was very knowledgeable, professional and it was a very satisfying experience. So call Jami!!”

-Pat Good, 2019

-Mike & Bri Goff, 2019

“Jami was the realtor for our son and wife when they sold their home. They said to ‘call Jamie’ which we did. Most definitely, she was the best where we were concerned. She put the sign in our front yard on Friday and Monday morning it was sold. Jamie is very professional, personal, and we knew  we were in good hands throughout the whole process. Thank you Jami!!”

-Ralph & Carolyn Chambers, 2019

“We were very stressed with the house buying process-Adam was there every step of the way to talk us off the ledge. He is available day or night. One of the most honest down to earth people we have ever met. Buying or selling we recommend Adam!”

-Lori & Don Benner, 2019

“Adam was very motivated and responsive when it came to helping me find a home. He did an amazing job of listening to what I was looking for, giving insight of what to expect as a first-time buyer, and making himself available for go view houses as soon as I messaged them to him. With Adam’s  guidance, I was able to find the house I wanted within just a few days, and he walked me through each step of the buying process whenever I had questions. His negotiation skills were very impressive, and he really looks out for his clients. I can’t say enough about how much I loved having him as my real estate agent. I would highly recommend Adam to anyone looking to buy or sell a home because he’s the real deal.”

-Paige Krouse, 2019

“Jami is awesome sauce! The best! She helped me purchase my home and I couldn’t be happier. Her knowledge and expertise are outstanding. And to top it off she loaned me a truck to move my belongings. If I should ever sell my home there is no doubt in my mind who will be my realtor!”

-Rick Hardin, 2019

“I have worked with Jami on both buying and selling my personal residences and several rental properties for the past 8 years. I wouldn’t use anyone else.”

-Krista Herington, 2019

“We wanted to see a house listed on Zillow, and when we submitted our information, Adam was the one to call us about it. From the beginning, Adam was polite and professional, but also relaxed and relatable. At the first house he showed us, we were surprised and impressed that he pointed out  defects of the house that were cause for concern. Over the next several months, we would contact Adam anytime that we found a house that we wanted to look at or wanted a second look at after an Open House. He was always quick to respond and flexible in setting up meeting times at the properties we wanted to see.  At no time during any of our viewings did we ever feel any pressure from Adam to “do something” – on the contrary, he was quick to point out flaws and issues with the properties we viewed, and gave us good, solid reasons as to why we should keep looking. When we toured the house we ultimately purchased at an Open House, we realized that it had 99% of everything we were looking for. When Adam showed us the house later that week, he knew that we’d found the one we were looking for. He was very helpful in laying out a strategy for making an offer, and patiently listened to and answered all of our questions. He may deal with house sales all of the time, but this was only our second – and he never made us feel like any of our questions were silly or that we were wasting his time. Things moved fast, and the negotiation process we started in the morning was completed at 9 o’clock that night. Adam had no problem working the late hours to get the deal done, which we greatly appreciate. The subsequent weeks brought all of the typical things: house inspection, bank logistics, etc., and Adam and his assistant were there to help guide us through it. We feel that he helped us to buy our Dream Home, and for that we are grateful. Ultimately, we have been very happy with Adam’s performance as our Realtor; enough that we plan to use him when we put our old house on the market in the near future. Adam was polite, honest. prompt, humorous when appropriate and serious when needed, and above all, a professional. We had such a better experience with him than we did with our first realtor 22 years ago, that he renewed our faith and raised our opinions of realtors. We would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor in the Springfield, IL and surrounding areas.”

-Steve McGraw, 2019

“Jami and her team were Professional, Responsive, and a Pleasure to work with. It was 48 days from the day we signed the listing agreement until we walked out of the closing with a check. We couldn’t be more pleased with Jami and her team, and will certainly use her again in the future.”

-Dennis & Joyce Barnett, 2018

Jami made sure that every detail of selling our home was done perfect. She sold our home fast and for full asking price. We will definitely choose her again for all our home buying/selling needs.”

-Aaron & Michelle Hemberger, 2018

I have worked with Jami for 18 years. I moved out of state for 3 years and when I found out I was moving back to IL, she was the first person I contacted. She is the best and surrounds herself with the best people so no matter if you are dealing with Jami directly or her assistant, Sara, you are getting quick responses and they keep you up-to-date on what’s coming up next or what is needed to keep the process flowing as smooth as possible. I would highly recommend Jami to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.”

-Bill & Chris Colliver, 2018

-Larry & Deb Eaton, 2018

“I needed to sell my home in a short period of time. I contacted Jami and she met with me immediately. She was professional, knowledgeable and genuine. She kept me informed during the entire process and was available at any time. I actually moved across country before the closing and Jami handled everything. She is caring and trustworthy. My home sold in 18 days. Life changes can be very stressful. I’m so thankful of Jami and her team. Working with her was a pleasure. There are not enough stars to properly recommend her.”

-Mary Ann Moody, 2018

“It was such a pleasure to have Adam help us buy and find our first home. He was always open to looking at any house, and always provided input on the “good” and “bad” of each house. We are EXTREMELY thankful for his patience and honesty throughout the whole process. He was always there for us at a drop of a hat and answered every question we had (even the ridiculous ones). We are glad we chose Adam as our realtor and will forever have him help us with any buying or selling needs.”

– Jeremy & Dana Eisenhauer, 2018

“I cannot say enough about Adam Bugos. We have had Adam buy and sell several homes for us over the past three years. His knowledge and expertise in real estate transactions has continually exceeded every aspect of our expectations. If you are looking to buy or sell a home, there is no one better in this field than Adam. I guarantee you will not find a real estate agent of his caliber.

-Tom & Carol Korty, 2018

Very, very knowledgeable. She noticed the little things in every home that I never noticed. I was so focused on certain items I would overlook others. She would point out the positive and negative things that she knows or noticed about the neighborhood. Jami is also very knowledgeable in grants that are available to buyers. Her staff is also FANTASTIC! They made sure to set up all of your needed appointments/inspections and also email you reminders. A+ service all the way around. Did I mention the free moving truck?”

-Aaron Hanselman, 2018

“I have worked with Jami for the past 11 years, and bought/sold with her through 4 homes. The 3 times we listed our home for sale with her, they all three sold within 6 days! Jami is not only professional, but warm and compassionate. She is genuine and “real”. She doesn’t pressure you or “talk you into” anything and it is clear that she is dedicated on finding you your perfect fit for a home. Jami has always put in long hours to accommodate our busy schedules, and responds to our questions quickly. She is wonderful!! The BEST agent out there! I would highly recommend this dynamic person for anyone searching or wanting to list their home. You will not be disappointed; if I could I would give Jami a million stars!”

-Jason & Talia Dean, 2018

“We have purchased two homes and sold one with her as our real estate agent. We would highly recommended her. She only showed us houses that exactly for our wants and needs.”

-Karen & Patrick Provart, 2015

“We brought a house through Jami last year and it was a very smooth process as she did all the communication between us and the owner’s realtor. She was very patient and honest when it came to things getting done that should be done before closing. Would highly recommend to others looking to buy or sell.”

-John Archer & Megan Whaley, 2018

“As first time homebuyers, Adam made the process of buying a home as easy as he could for me and my husband. He was extremely knowledgeable of the area we were looking in, helpful, and responsive to message and calls. He helped us figure out what we wanted and then found houses that fit our needs. Once we found ”the one,” he helped negotiate and advise us through the buying process. He is very friendly and helpful! I would certainly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home!

-John & Carrie Haley, 2017

“Jami is the BEST! I thought I could sell on my own, after weeks of broken promises and all of the stress it caused my family and I. I gave Jami a shot, she sold our 1st house within a week. It was totally worth it. Since then, Jami has helped us buy and sell 2 more houses. Finally we found the one. The house that my kids will grow up in and call home. We love it and we love her!

-Paul Wurtzler, 2014

Adam is wonderful! I would recommend him to anyone. He’s easy to get ahold of and his knowledge is unreal.

Contact Adam for all of your realtor needs!!
