Gretchen did a fabulous job selling our house! Not only is she a true professional, she is also a great person to work with. She provided excellent advice in preparing the home for sale, and provided top notch resources to market the home. From the photos to the staging, the house looked amazing, and Gretchen ensured that every penny we spent preparing for the sale was a great investment. From the initial walk through, all the way through the closing of the sale, Gretchen was a pleasure to work with.

We had been looking for a house for almost 8 months when we found Gretchen. She came to us with a positive attitude, knowing that we really wanted to purchase a house in Gilroy. When everyone was paying for houses in cash, Gretchen's experience and positive attitude kept us competitive. Her tireless advocacy and level-headed approach kept us focused and calm. She answered our emails and phone calls promptly and was always willing to listen to our concerns. I would wholeheartedly recommend friends and family to Gretchen.

Our home of 24 years wasn't too far from being market ready and with Gretchen's recommendations it was on the market in less than two weeks. We had the good fortune of finding our future home right away and Gretchen helped us through those steps. Additionally, we only had a window of six weeks to sell our house. Gretchen was diligent in ensuring that our home had an open house every weekend and was well advertised. She faithfully advised us with her straightforward business opinion on price changes and strategy when offers began to come in. Our house sold in one month even during a time when the rate of sales had cooled from a brief hot market. Gretchen helped negotiate that the close of our old house pretty much coincided with the close of the new house so that the move was seamless. We cannot say enough about our respect for and appreciation of Gretchen. She has flawless integrity and is a delight to work with. We thank her and would recommend her to all.

My wife and I can't say enough good things about Gretchen and the real estate service she provided for us. We felt overwhelmed about the process of selling our current home and buying a new home for our growing family. Gretchen walked us through every step and brought in other professionals when necessary. Her photographer and stager did excellent jobs on making our home look great online and in person. Gretchen helped us find just the right home to move into with the space and yard size we were hoping for. We couldn't be more happy and satisfied.

We met Gretchen in 2017 when touring a home she had an open house in Morgan Hill. We were very impressed with her expert knowledge in the housing market, the buying/selling process, and she became our realtor! Gretchen was very personable, kind and delightful to work with. She always had our best interests in mind. She helped us to purchase a wonderful home in Morgan Hill and sold ours all within weeks! Gretchen walked us through the multiple offers during the sale and helped us to negotiate a high sale price. We're so lucky to have met Gretchen and we owed our "homeowner happiness" all to her!

We worked with Gretchen on selling our home and to represent us in buying our new home and she was amazing to work with! She made every step super easy for us, answered our many questions thoroughly because we were clueless on how the process worked, told us what we could do to spruce up our house for a quick and valuable sell, and was very personable and communicative throughout. We see her as more than just an agent, but a friend. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent to represent them!
