Gerald is someone you can trust. I had a complicated situation when selling my condo and it dragged on for months, but he was able to guide me through everything and gave me his honest, objective opinions as to what my next step should be. Never had a problem getting back responses. He was always prompt and delivered what was promised with no delays. His comps and listings report was helpful and accurate. i highly recommend him to anyone

Bought a home in 2014 in Jefferson Park, Charlottesville, VA 22908.

We were first time home-buyers and Gerald was patient and knowledgeable walking us through the process. We were also moving from the east coast, so our availability looking at houses was limited. Gerald made himself available to meet our tight schedule, and spent a couple full days showing us around the Seattle and Eastside neighborhoods. Being new to the area Gerald was very helpful going over the pros and cons of the various neighborhoods, including important traffic considerations. When it came down to negotiating an offer on a competitive property, Gerald gave us an effective negotiating strategy to secure our home (all with us across the country). We highly recommend Gerald!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $500K in Newport Hills, Bellevue, WA.

Gerald was extremely knowledgeable and answered our newbie home-buyer questions at all hours. He made himself very available to us and took us to see each house we were interested in. He had many insights on the process and we were grateful for his expertise!

Bought a home in 2013 in Mercer Island Town, Mercer Island, WA 98040.

We recently purchased a condo on Mercer Island with Gerald as our agent. We knew exactly what we wanted and Gerald quickly helped us identify several condos for us to look at. As soon as we wanted to place an offer, Gerald moved quickly to ensure that we were able to secure our new condo - even though there was a competing offer in play. Throughout the purchase process Gerald continue to provide solid advice on how to proceed and great tips on how to integrate into our new neighborhood. If you want an agent that is not just interested in completing another transaction, but is actually interested in you and meeting your needs as you buy, this is your man.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $725K in North Queen Anne, Seattle, WA.

Gerald just represented us as buyers in this highly competitive real estate market and really helped us navigate through it. He was always available for showings and honest and knowledgeable about the true condition of homes. He is very technical and understands construction of all eras in the Seattle market. He never asked us to sign any contracts to lock us in or pushed us into homes beyond our financial comfort zone. He was responsive and patient.

When it came time to craft an offer, he understood step by step what was going to happen and his advice to us was spot on. He helped us get the house we wanted even when presented with multiple offers.

I highly recommend Gerald as an honest broker that knows very well the in and outs of the real estate market of Seattle as well as the psychology behind making a sale.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $725K in North Queen Anne, Seattle, WA.

I highly recommend Gerald and would use him again without hesitation. Gerald represented me as the buyer, and I was impressed with him from day one. Being new to the area, we relied upon his guidance on the best neighborhoods, valued his insight on the real condition of potential houses, and trusted his guidance in the buying process. Gerald has great technical knowledge of houses and their construction, so he was a great resource in assessing the overall condition of a property and determining their individual strengths and weaknesses. Gerald was also a shrewd negotiator, completely understood the intricacies of the buying process, and offered us guidance that put us in the best position to close the deal on the house we wanted. Gerald was a true professional, always on time, detailed and pro-active in every sense, even compensating for the seller's broker's shortcomings. He never asked us to sign an agreement locking us into his services, and he never tried to push us into a house beyond our budget to better serve his interests. His advice was always on target, truthful and realistic.

Sold a Condo home in 2013 in Mercer Island, WA.

Gerald recently helped us sell our condo in what turned out to be a very convoluted and difficult process. We had to file 3 extensions, and were sure the sale would fall through any time. I give Gerald all the credit for negotiating on our behalf with our buyers, the bank, the appraisers and all the other parties involved. He was available all hours of the day and night-to the extent that I felt badly for his family. He helped us through the staging, listing and inspection process, recommending an amazing cleaner and electrician.

Not least of all, he's a genuinely kind and easy person to work with, very encouraging and upbeat. I will absolutely recommend him to anyone I know who is buying or selling!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $625K in Woodinville, WA.

Gerald helped us purchase a home in a highly competitive market. He is extremely knowledgable in home construction and was very informative in helping us evaluate the pros and cons of houses we looked at. On the negotiation side, he is a very savvy and proactive negotiator. We felt like we could trust him completely to help us get the best deal possible. Overall, he is a great agent, possibly the best we've ever had, both in terms of competency and helpfulness. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone, and we'd definitely call on him again the next time we buy or sell a house.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $775K in Mercer Island, WA.

Gerald was very professional, knowledgeable, and responsive throughout the experience of selling our home. When there were decisions to be made he always had constructive advice, points, and counter points to guide us through the process. During discussions we never felt pressure of time constraints on his part that would allow us to obtain all the information we needed.

I'm humbled by your generous comments, thank you for putting your trust in me and for your very kind review. Selling a home can be a very taxing process and you were both great to work with. I look forward to seeing you soon around town!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $450K in Newcastle, WA.

Gerald helped me purchase of my current home and I was very pleased with his work. He was honest, hard working and unflappable throughout the process which became complicated due to the short sale nature of the transaction. Gerald worked well with the sellers' agent, patiently explained to me the process and made sure I had all the information I needed to make my decision throughout the long negotiation process. He is a great negotiator, represented well my interests, is knowledgable about the market and followed through with my requests for more information in a timely manner. I would work with Gerald again without reservation.
