In making the decision to purchase a second home out-of-state, we were fortunate to be introduced to Ron and Andrea Gilles by a friend that had utilized their services in the purchase of her home and was extremely satisfied. It was indeed the best decision we could have made in having Ron assist with the search and purchase of our new home. We flew in for a weekend visit and spent 3 whirlwind days looking at homes that Ron had completely researched ahead of time after taking in all of our information from email conversations back and forth (size of the home and property, style, property layout preferences, etc.). Ron took into consideration generally where we thought we wanted to be located, yet considering our unfamiliarity with the area, took the time to show us homes in all areas to give us a better idea of what was available to us. Because of this, we were able to gain a better appreciation for a larger geographical area and actually ended up purchasing a home in a completely different location than our original preference. He also took the time to "get to know us" by learning our extracurricular interests and more about our family, and was able to share many points of interest, including golf courses, great fishing and crabbing spots, biking and walking, etc. Ron is a long term resident of Sequim, WA, is very involved in the community and is quite familiar with all of the area businesses, so he was able to provide great direction and information on any services we were seeking or may need, as well as local shopping and restaurants. He was and continues to be very responsive to our inquiries, providing thorough information at any given moment. Ron is extremely personable and knowledgable and made the process of purchasing a home out-of-state, which is often full of anxiety, seamless and pleasant. He was an ideal liaison between buyer and seller. We were never at a loss for answers or guidance and would highly recommend his services.
