Seller’s testimonials

Gary & Rachel

We would like to Thank You for the time and effort you gave during the sale of our home. To put the house up for sale and within 36 hours have it sold is an awesome feat. You both did an outstanding job and demonstrated multiple times that the sale of the home is a multiple step process-passion to sell the home, open communications, task oriented, and a willingness to work thru all steps of selling our home. Thanks for helping us through the inspection process and keeping us in the information loop.
Even though we are relocating to another state we have been very generous with our positive comments on your commitment to the seller and your passion to sell homes.

Many thanks

Lonnie & Sherrol W.


I want to thank you for the professionalism that you showed me in both the sale of my old home and the new home that I purchased. I appreciated that you were willing to answer any question I had. I was glad for your expertise.

You worked very hard in my behalf and I felt that I had a good advocate in you. I also appreciated the fact that you did not put any pressure on me to buy anything beyond my means.

At age seventy five, all the above are much needed. I am recommending you to anyone I know. I have shared with my family, friends and acquaintances how hard you have worked for me.

Also, thank Rachel Hobbs for me. She was a joy to work with also.

Gratefully,

Rita E.


I wanted to thank you for responding so quickly as things popped up while my home was listed. It certainly made things easier knowing that you would follow through and get things done in a timely manner. You’re a true professional!

Gary sold my house to the first people who looked at it. That would seem like good news except with the low inventory of houses for sale in the area this turned into a challenge. Gary and I started looking at everything that became available. He would accommodate me on short notice, holidays and weekends.

The one thing that struck me was Gary would not let me “settle” on a house he knew was not what I really wanted even though I needed to find a house for my family before school started. We looked at a lot of houses and even when I found a house I thought I wanted he steered me to the house I ended up buying. He knew exactly what I wanted and found it for me. He was always looking out for my best interest on stuff you don’t think of like resale ability or how old the roof is. I am grateful for everything that Gary did for me in selling and finding a new home for myself and my family. My kids are still saying how much they love our new home. Thank you Gary!

Jason and I wanted to thank you for all you did to help us sell our home and move into the amazing home we have now.  We put our house on the market, not in a rush and aware of the slow moving market – we had no idea we would have an offer in less than 2 weeks!

Your knowledge and guidance through getting the house ready, and even preparing us for the roller coaster of emotions along the way, really helped the process run smoothly.  We could tell you were definitely in our corner with both your “Seller” and “Buyer” hats.  We learned a great deal from you and are grateful for your time and effort with us.

After taking us through about 20 homes, we finally found the perfect one.  You assisted with the offer and were more than prepared to assist us through the closing and our requests for repairs.

Gary, your professionalism, knowledge, energy, and dedication truly makes you an outstanding Realtor and we are thrilled to have had you along the way.

Thank you for all you do!

Amy & Jason


Kelly and I wanted to take you a moment to say thank you for your hard work and attention to detail during the sale of your home. Your experience and knowledge was paramount in successfully selling our home for more than our asking price so quickly. This was a challenge given the size and age of our home, but thanks to your strategic marketing and planning, you got the job done.

In addition, you went above and beyond by continuing to communicate with us after the sale had closed to
ensure that we were well represented during the purchase of our new home. This included personal
communication with our lender and realtor hundreds of miles away. Your assistance helped save us a substantial
amount of money on the purchase of our new home. You were sensitive and attentive to our needs, making us
feel at ease during the whole process. This kind of care is indicative of someone who truly cares about his clients
and takes pride in what he does.

Kelly and I will gladly refer our friends and family to you because we are confident that you can and will meet
their real estate needs. In the future, you can feel free to use us as a reference, as we will surely recommend
your service.

Mark & Kelly


I just wanted to thank you and commend you for the successful sale of my mother’s home. You concluded a sale
in a far shorter time frame, and at a significantly higher price, than what we felt was achievable.

As a commercial realtor I have high standards, as I go the extra mile for my clients. You provided that same level
of service to my family. Your follow through was exceptional and you conducted yourself professionally
throughout the process.

I would not hesitate to recommend you to friends or associates in need of a residential realtor.
Thank you again for your diligence.

Sincerely,

Tony


We thank you for your exceptional effort in the sale of our house. In this difficult housing market, the higher
price range of our house made it even more challenging. You applied the maximum effort in open houses,
broker tours, even obtaining a featured house segment in the Sunday Oregonian newspaper. You continually
kept us abreast of current market conditions. You recommended pricing adjustments geared toward the
keeping us within comparable housing sales in the local market.

One exceptional event came after we made the hard decision to remove the house from the market and
prepare to wait out the economic downturn. A month after the delisting, you were contacted by an agent who
wanted to view our house. You passed this request along to us with the opinion that this was a serious buyer.
From that point to closing, you worked hard and quickly to resolve any issues that would prevent the escrow
from closing. Without your close watchful eye and attentiveness during escrow, we do not believe it would have
been possible to close on such a short schedule.

You offered sound advice in preparation for our house sale, from adding kitchen granite countertops to the
decision to upgrade the hard stucco exterior to the latest building codes. All of this, in the end, made the
ultimate sale and close of escrow move quickly and smoothly.

Again we offer our thanks to you. We highly recommend you to anyone considering placing their house on the
market.

Don & Pam


We were very fortunate to have had you as a realtor. We are impressed with your integrity, enthusiasm, energy
and willingness to help us do what was needed to sell the house. Thank you for your helping us in every area
regardless what the issue was. Your positive attitude was an encouragement to us. You said you would sell the
house, you did! And in only 3 weeks, amazing!!!

We are referring you to our friends and relatives and to anyone that we hear saying, “we are trying to sell our
house”. Again; thank you very much.

Sincerely,

Marv & Darlene


I wanted to thank you again for the extraordinary job you did in the sale and purchase of our homes. Everyone’s
hope in a sell and purchase situation is to have both happen on the same day. You helped us meet that goal.

Our old home sold within a very short time frame. You developed and implemented a sound professional
marketing plan that resulted in a prompt sale at the top of the market price. Your assistance in negotiating
follow up inspection items was invaluable. It saved us both time and money.

Thank you Gary and feel free to use us as references in the future. We wish you every success.

Warmest Regards,

Bruce & Cathy


We would like to thank you for your help with the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. Thank
you for making these two transactions happen especially when it appeared they would not.

We really appreciate your helping us to understand the entire home buying and selling process as we followed
you through it. Your advice was invaluable each step of the way. Thank you for keeping us focused and positive
during the sensitive situations that arose during the process.

We have met many Realtors throughout the process of looking for a new home and you stand out in our minds
as the most professional and competent by far. It was very refreshing when you followed through with
everything you said you would, never missing a single detail.

We look forward to working with you again.

Thank you,

Rod & Lisa

Thank you for being the guiding force in putting together the rather confusing and complicated sale of my home.

There were many subtle, yet very real emotions, irritations and frustrations that came into play and you were
sensitive in dealing with all of them.

I feel you were creative and resourceful as you worked to resolve each new problem as it developed.
I’m grateful too, that whenever the situation took a dismal turn your tenacity and positive attitude kept me
focused and on track.

I deeply appreciate your professionalism and commitment in working all things through so I could have a happy
and successful sale of my home.

Sincere thanks,

Geraldine


I am glad that my wife remembered you and we had you and your company to help us sell our home in Aloha. I
was very impressed from the first day we met how you explained to us in every detail the process of selling a
house and your responsibility to us to make it work.

You were very professional and kept your promises and commitment you made to us throughout the selling and
closing process. It was a pleasant experience to sell the house and you did an excellent job in negotiating the
selling price knowing our financial needs. Also, helping us go through the inspection process by calling in a
certified electrician to review issues in the electrical system that would have otherwise cost us a lot of money.

We are going to recommend you to all of our friends and people searching for a reliable hard working agent, an
agent that works for and with the client to make the most profitable sale and the smoothest transaction
possible.

Thank you very much,

Bernd & Josefine


Nancy and I want to thank you for all your help and guidance in the selling of our home.

Your professional attitude and positive approach helped us to make the right decisions about pricing and
preparation for our house for sale.

We were always able to reach you when we had questions and you always responded promptly to our calls. You
guided us professionally through the negotiation process and when problems arose you made them go away.

Your professional attitude even continued after the sale when we needed to stay in our home till our new home
was finished.

We appreciate all your fine work and would recommend you to anyone that needs to sell or buy a home.

Thank you again for all of your help and our best wishes for your continued success.

Ron & Nancy


Greg and I want to thank you for selling our house for us. You came through with every promise and your
professionalism and honesty was very much appreciated. If we ever have real estate needs again we will look
you up and we will also refer you to anybody we know.

Thanks again for helping us make our dreams come true.

Greg & Jen


We wanted to thank you again for the great job you did in the sale and purchase of our homes.

Our former home sold within a very short timeframe, one that exceeded our hopes and expectations. You
developed a solid marketing plan and were proactive in suggesting improvements that would enhance the value
of that home.

We were also pleased in your assistance in finding a larger home for my family, including our 3 girls. You found a
home that fit our requirements and specifications and truly helped us purchase a home that will have an
enhanced resale value long into the future. Needless to say, you saved us thousands of dollars in this
transaction.

To summarize, we appreciate the qualities you bring to your clients as an expert in your field, particularly in the
Beaverton Area, the no-nonsense approach you have to your business and the confidence we feel as clients in
working with you; we feel you are truly working in our best interest.

We wish you continued success.

Best Regards

Andrew & Sonia


Thank you for the excellent job you did in selling Sandra’s house. From the explanation of the sale process, the
discussion of issues to be considered, the setting of the sales price, the marketing materials you had prepared,
the open house you conducted, the offer and counter-offer process and the closing process were all timely and
professionally conducted. You did a professional job!

But more than all of that — you went out of the way to make sure the major repairs we needed – roof, siding,
and paint were done by responsible people who knew their job and did them well. As owners you made the job
easy for us. From start to finish it was a fantastic and enjoyable experience to work with you. It was hard to
believe that we had the buying offer within a week of listing and closed in a month – this is supposed to be the
“slow” season for house selling.

Gary, you can use us for a recommendation anytime.

With Appreciation for the excellent work,

Art & Sandy


I wanted to let you know what a fantastic Real Estate Agent Michelle and I think you are. We gave you an
extremely short deadline to sell our house and you performed. In addition, the extra work you did making sure
that the closings of both homes went smoothly was exceptional. It was a wonderful experience due to your
tenacity and diligence. We always felt we could rely upon you during the whole process.

Without hesitation we will recommend you to all of our friends, family and clients.

Sincerely,

Matthew


Greetings from Bend! Things are going well as I hope they are for you. I wanted to make sure that I told you
thanks again and how much Judy and I appreciated your work on our behalf. To merely tell you that we were
pleased with the results would be a disservice to you and any future client. At our first meeting you spoke of
your loyalty and dedication to your clients. That certainly was revealed to be the truth. You were aggressive, you
knew your job, you knew what our circumstances were and what we needed and you came through for us. You
sold the house; you didn’t wait for it to sell. You were always available, right down to going over and putting out
the trash for us one Friday after we’d already left. You went the extra mile and it showed.

Judy and I would have no reservations recommending you to anyone looking to buy or sell. Although our
experience with you was as sellers we have every confidence that you would bring the same dedication to
anybody in either situation.

Jeff


This is a very belated thank you for helping us sell our home and purchase our current home. We were very
pleased by your representation. You were always available via cell phone and were always courteous and
helpful. Your advice and guidance made the process go very smoothly. When multiple offers came in you were
in touch with us even though you were out of town. We appreciate your selling strategy and your assistance in
putting us in touch with contractors to make the needed repairs. We will always pass your name to our friends.

Mark & Meryl
