Where do I begin? I met Gillian over a year ago when I decided to start my journey in becoming a homeowner. I had no idea what the process truly entailed. I remember laughing at myself after I sat through her buyer’s workshop and thought “wow, there’s no way I could ever own home alone!” I thought I could just go out pick any home I wanted and pay it off in no time. That just goes to show you how little I knew about owning a home.
I was blown away by Gillian’s professionalism, kind heart, expertise & overall great personality.
Gillian taught me about all the financing, loans, bills, equity, pros/cons, and the reality of it all. She gave me clarification as many times as I needed (trust me there were many). Several times I was so excited to view a home & Gillian refused to show me the home so I wouldn’t get my hopes up because 1)it was way out of my budget 2) I didn’t have my down payment together yet. She was patient and nurturing. Guided me on the best ways to save/budget and to begin the process in advance (since it takes time) but slowly, to be realistic and open-minded. She wasn’t one of those pushy saleswomen who just want their share. She was patient, kind, knowledgeable, genuine, fair, and very informative all along. When I was finally ready to go out and look she showed me some great options and really met my needs as far as budget, location, and style. Some homes were a bit sketchy that I found on Zillow, but she was honest about my safety & like a mother told me this would not be the best fit for me. Plenty more examples of Gillian being a caring human and not just a real estate agent!!
She helped resolve conflicts throughout the process. Negotiated well. And had a professional, classy, and expert style to her! Gillian was with me from start to close! Literally! She was by my side and it made me feel so at ease. Especially this being my first time buying a homecoming straight out of mom and dad’s house. Any questions I had were always addressed in a timely manner, and with a lot of care/thought. Gillian has become like family. She treated me like her own all throughout & for that I am forever grateful. I trust her and will definitely use her forever! I highly recommend Gillian if you’re looking to buy a home and just need a great mentor by your side. Someone who will go out of their job description because they genuinely care. Who will put themselves in your shoes and offer personal advice in any given scenario.
Thank you Gillian for making this first experience, the best experience ever & going above and beyond to please your clients!! You are truly a great agent, mentor, and overall a caring human! You will forever be a reason for my happiness, not just in my home, but in my life. ♥️
