Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Gainesville, FL.
From our first meeting when I described the kind of house I was looking for to the closing Betsy was there for me. She was professional, caring and promptly responded to my questions. Her office provided me with the information I needed to make an informed decision. She made the purchase of my home an enjoyable experience. I highly recommend her to prospective buyers.
Betsy was terrific to work with in selling our home. We had a few unexpected hiccups but she patiently and diligently worked the process and stayed with us all the way through. It is nice to work with someone so knowledgeable eager to share of her time and experience. I highly recommend Betsy to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
She and her team were very responsive by email,text and phone. They were well informed, had great advice. Allowed me time to do some researching and then they were available to give input.
so helpful and patient with reviewing properties.
Very helpful advising and recommending a local realtor to help with selling process.
Which turned out SO Well. Sold my home in 1 week after placed on market.

We recommend Betsy to everyone we know who is selling a house. We listed our home in Mentone and accepted an offer in less than 2 weeks, and quicker than any other hosue in the neighborhood. Betsy priced the house correctly, and we sold for a higher amount than I expected. Betsy handled the offer, negotiations and contract documents flawlessly.
Betsy also helped up purchase our new home and was very patient with us. She sends out listings as they come onto the market and is a very non-pushy agent. She talked us through everything and was there to answer questions every step of the way.
My wife and I couldn't think more highly of her or her staff.

I asked a collegue to recommend a realtor since I was from out of town and did not know any realtors in Gainesville. Betsy Pepine came highly recommended and I learned why. Betsy was great to work with, professional, ethical, and calm (especially in some of the unusual circumstances we encountered!). I found her advice and honesty extremely helpful. We are very happy with our experience and our new home!
Betsy sold my house and helped me locate a new one. She was great because I out her through alot of grief searching. She also helped me locate a house to rent while I ended up building my home. Great experience and would defintely use Betsy again.

Tish- I love your new house. It turned out just like the magazine pictures!!! Thanks for inviting me on your scalloping trip. You were right, it's like an adult Easter egg hunt. So fun.
Betsy has helped me buy or sell property five times in Gainesville. She is intelligent, personable, highly ethical, and has a great passion for helping people with their housing needs. She understands that while families often relocate to Gainesville for career opportunities, they also need to have a home they enjoy, confidence in their children's schools, and a connection to the infrastructure of the community. She gets it.
Because she's been the top Realtor in the county for the last 3 years running, she's dealt with many real estate challenges and knows how to address them. She personally helped me with a property that was in a flood plain (but actually wasn't and walked me through the change process), a pre-occupancy agreement after sale of a home, financing for a buyer who was having a tough time finding a lender, and more. She knows Real Estate. And because she is so active in the business, she knows the properties that are out there, and what their market value truly is. I'd use her again in a heart beat.

Our experience with Betsy and her team was very positive.
Betsy gave us her honest opinion and advice on what would be best to get our house moving and was "right on" about everything.
Our house sold in less than 6 months and we know it was due to the professionalism, expertise and knowledge of Betsy.
The entire process from listing through closing has been an easy transition and gone smooth.
Everyone has gone above and beyond to make things happen and we are truly grateful.
We highly recommend Betsy and will definitely use her in the future if needed.
Thank you Betsy, Jenny and team!

It was such a pleasure to work with you again Denise. Your vision was right - we'd have it sold by the start of school :)Now you get to relax at the beach. Perfect timing!
