Ratings & Reviews

Gisela was wonderful. She has a massive knowledge of the whole real estate industry and all the processes involved in buying and selling homes. We appointed Gisela to sell our home in Florida and despite the fact that we live in the UK and there were some unforeseen issues with our home (roof repair/insurance claim etc) she was very efficient and made the process of selling our home remarkably easy. Whenever we had a question or request Gisela dealt with it immediately. We got the impression that nothing was too much trouble. In addition to her professional excellence, she is a genuinely lovely person and a pleasure to deal with. This was the first time that we used Gisela (the realtor who helped us buy our house retired and recommended Gisela) and we would not use anyone else in future. We thoroughly recommend her

Bought a home in 2014.

Gisela did a great job! She coordinated the home visits prior to our visit to Orlando, provided many opportunities to see many homes that were consistent with our search preferences and had intimate knowledge of the area. It was a pleasure to work with her to find our new home.

We would recommend her to anyone who is interested in homes in the area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Davenport, FL.

Gisela was such a delight to work with. She came highly recommended from some dear friends. I was in town for a very quick trip and she had many homes for me to look at in a short time. She listened to my needs and wants and understood my tight schedule. I was able to make a informed decision and then she took care of everything from then on. I was always in the loop on all decisions and she made sure all I's were dotted and T's were crossed. We closed on time and I am now the proud owner of a beautiful home in sunny Florida. I would recommend Gisela to anyone who is looking for a home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Kissimmee, FL.

Gisela worked with us when we were looking to buy in Bellalago. She proved to be the epitome of professionalism. She was thoughful and attentive during our several excursions and put us on an inside track to make a successful offer on the home we pruchased. when we chose to sell we , of couse, called gisela. She listed the home at the top of the market and proceded to expose the listing in a many different outlets. I believe her greatest strength is in the marketing of home and as a result we ultimately sold our home at the highest square footage price of any home sold in this community in the past year. If you are buying or selling property in Central Florida Gisela is the best.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Kissimmee, FL.

I have bought and sold property many times over the years in three different countries so I know how fraught it can be at times. However, working with Gisela is always a pleasure and living in the UK I know that I can trust her implicitly. This will be my seventh transaction with Gisela.and each one has gone smoothly, I am always kept up to date with progress which is so important.

I would highly recommend Gisela to you as she is very honest and hard working on your behalf.

Sold a home in 2012 in Citrus Ridge, Celebration, FL 34747.

I had talked with one other realtor before I talked with Gisela. Three days after my house was listed, I had two offers! One was $18,000 more than the first realtor's suggested list, and the second was for $20,000 more than the first realtor's suggested list. In less than two weeks after the offers, we closed on the house.

I realize that this isn't the norm, but I can say with certainty, had we not used Gisela, this would not have happened. Gisela has many methods of marketing properties, and one of the methods that isn't widely used found the buyers. Rarely is a person 100% completely satisfied with any transaction, but I am in this case. Besides being the consummate pro in real estate, Gisela made the whole process fun. She has my highest recommendation.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Davenport, FL.

We were more than impressed with Gisela's professional skills and experience and her friendly attitude. We sold the home within a couple of days of marketing and closed within 10. Gisela helped us with other aspects of the transaction and her kindness and attention to our requirements was gratefully received. We would definitely recommend her to others. Brillian Gisela and thank you!

Sold a home in 2012 in Citrus Ridge, Celebration, FL 34747.

Gisela sold our vacation rental condo in just one week for more than the average price of similar properties. She was great to work with: efficient, knowledgeable, friendly, responsive. Plus, the marketing tools she has available to her are the best in the area. Gisela uses them all to great advantage. If you are looking to sell a property in the central FL area, you should contact Gisela.
