I really hope you get to see this review, you deserve a raise.


Misty has exceeded our expectations as a real estate agent. She works diligently on making sure our transaction is smooth and our needs are met! We have used her many times and we will continue to use her!


Absolutely amazing to work with, Misty was always available to answer questions and calm nerves. She explained every step of the closing process, promptly responding to emails, text & calls and walked us through our sale seamlessly! I have no doubt that she makes all of her clients feel as valuable as she did us!


Misty had the tough job of selling our house in Carthage, Il. in the midst of a pandemic. She was confident that she could sell it, walked us through an out of state move, even recommending a top notch realtor in that state that could help us find a new house. Misty is always available for questions, having our best interest in mind throughout the whole process and truly cares about her clients. She is one step ahead and quick to get the job done! She is the BEST!

Would not stop working until I found the perfect house and helped negotiate and educate me along the way. Explaining things that would need replaced in the near future and explaining things like the home warranty. Misty Dowling and Gem City Real Estate Group was there through every step of the process, I would HIGHLY recommend using her.

Can’t say enough about Misty’s efficiency and professionalism. Our home and sat on the market for nearly 3 months with a little activity . We met Misty and told her about our home. Within a week she had showed our home and had an offer! She was literally a god sent! Thank you so much Misty! Any realtor will be happy to list your property. But you need a hard-working professional to sell it! Misty Dowling certainly fits that description!
~ Michael Hinkamper
Misty made the process of buying our first home an absolute breeze! I had issues with other realtors being pushy when viewing houses. Misty was open and honest when it came to showing us homes. She listened to what we wanted and delivered 100%. She made great efforts to get us the perfect starter home. There are not enough good things to be said about Misty’s business. Anyone who has the privilege to work with her will certainly have no regrets!
~ Leslie Zykan
Gem City Real Estate Group and Misty Dowling are amazing to work with. I can’t speak highly enough of Misty as a real estate agent. Her professionalism, knowledge, honesty, integrity and hard work ethics are very much appreciated and respected. She is detail oriented, honest, good with people and has a skill for matching buyers and sellers with just what they need. As a Mortgage Banker she makes the transaction very simple so her buyers or seller never have to worry.. she always stays on top of every detail throughout the mortgage process. I would recommend Misty Dowling and staff to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home.

Misty was excellent at helping us sell our home. It sold so quick. She went above and beyond to help us find our new dream home. She was always here to answer questions we had. She listened to everything we wanted and found us just that. She took us to look at so many houses knowing it’s not what we wanted even though we wanted to see them. All of this while COVID was going on. She did an excellent job would definitely give her more than the 5 stars allowed.I highly recommend misty to sell your current house and find your dream home.
~ Sara Hankins

Definitely give her a call for any of your real estate needs! We will never use anyone else!
~ Victoria Tuley
Buying a house for the very first time can be really intimidating so having a trustworthy and reliable realtor to guide you through the process is vital! Misty made us feel comfortable with our decision and when obstacles occurred rather regarding the house or loan process she was there to guide us. One of the many things we loved about working with Misty was her honesty and compassion. You will not find another realtor that looks out for you like Misty does. I’m so glad we took a chance on Gem City Real Estate and we will continue future business with them. Trust me when I say you will not regret working with Gem City Real Estate!
