"It was great to work with Gretchen for a second time. She helped us before and we knew we wanted to work with her again when we had another real estate need. She kept us up to date in this short inventory market and we were able to find the ideal property together in the best location for our family. We would highly recommend her to our friends” C. Barbu

"Working with Gretchen in the sale of our home was an incredible experience. We had lived at the residence for over 30 years and she was able to understand our position not only from a professional perspective but also an emotional one. She provided us with great insight and did not pressure us at any time. Simply, she and her team are the best at what they do - she was always available, answered any questions we had throughout the process, made accurate assessments of our property and the market, and made the entire process as easy for us as possible. Without reservation, we highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area and we also look forward to potentially working with her in the future. Our experience simply could not have been any better” V. Reddy
