Every story has a beginning, a middle, and an end. For this home sale saga, Gina deserves a Pulitzer prize! To start with, as I had recently moved out-of-state, Gina calmed all my long-distance concerns. Her extensive network of vendors made inspecting, repairing, and “dressing up” the property affordable, efficient, and easy. Gina managed schedules, coordinated projects, and facilitated communications until every detail was perfect. Then, literally the day after the home was listed for sale, the Governor shut California down to address the Covid-19 crisis. Talk about a plot twist! Gina never blinked … she immediately created a video tour, conducted private tours, and established sanitation protocols that kept everyone safe. What’s more, her robust web presence meant that online traffic actually increased. In the middle of a pandemic, the story ends very happily: the house sold quite quickly, and a new family now has the the chance to start the next chapter of their lives in a home that had already provided happy memories for more than one generation. She’s too young to be a fairy godmother, but the result was the same. Thanks, Gina and your team, for a magical experience selling a beloved home!

Gina is the best resource you could want in the housing market! Calling her a ‘real estate agent’ does not do her justice as she is way more than that. She will connect you with all the right people throughout the process, and ensure you end up in the perfect home for you and your loved ones. You’ll end up with Gina as a friend by the end of the process, and you won’t regret it!

Gina is THE go-to real estate professional for the Monterey Bay. Not only have all the real estate processes I have worked with her on gone smoothly, she has always been the name that has come up when I have done outside research for regional experts. That reputation is deserved. So don’t waste time…. if you are buying or selling… start with Gina.

Rob W

The easiest person to work with and the most helpful agent I have encountered for real estate matters. Fully knowledgeable and informed. She spends enough time and effort on each transaction. Connected with other professionals to get the job done…I would recommend her to everyone. She sets realistic expectations and is always available.
