Ratings & Reviews

I can't say enough good things about Gwen, she is fantastic! When I bought my home, there were other offers on the table, but Gwen impressed the seller and seller's agent with her tenacity and her professionalism. She was highly organized, easy to work with, and walked me through the entire process of buying a house. She always presented me with multiple options, whether it was cherry-picking the best available options for my needs, or whether I needed help with inspections, home improvement, escrow etc. I have since sought her advice on two more properties since that purchase, and though I didn't end up buying them, her consultations were invaluable. <br/><br/>Gwen knows tons about what to look for and what to look out for, both in the physical structure of the house and in the deal-making. She is also fun, friendly, and engaging, but she knows how to broker a deal without compromising. She is patient and takes all the time you need when she explains confusing laws and home-buying processes, and she never makes you feel like you're being rushed. Her personal touch with clients rivals any I've ever seen in any business, and she always makes you feel like your her number one priority.<br/><br/>I *highly* recommend Gwen as a real estate agent, and I will definitely definitely seek her help again if I buy another home.
