"(EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS) Gillian and Prentiss are by far the most capable real estate team I've worked with. I've bought and sold 30+ properties. They exceeded my expectations in every respect: Price, timeliness, negotiations. I got a higher price than l asked for in a week and they made the negotiation process quick and efficient. I cannot recommend them highly enough and I intend to use their services in all my real estate transactions going forward. " - Bernard Xavier 2/14/22

"(Gillian's persistence, follow-up and professional knowledge were all top notch.) It takes a unique realtor to guide east coast home buyers through a California townhouse purchase in the middle of a pandemic. Gillian made it look easy. While on-line photos were great for screening houses remotely, Gillian excelled at Face-timing us as she walked through hallways, living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens etc, answering our questions as she measured appliances and pointed out features and flaws. She went above and beyond when the tour outside the house included asking neighbors for feedback on the community and inspiring our confidence in the friendliness of our new community. She even gathered information on local golf and tennis clubs in the area. When we had questions about HOA fees, taxes and utility costs, Gillian diligently followed up and got us answers. She guided us through the house and termite inspections and coordinated getting an estimate from a roofer to ensure we were comfortable with our purchase price. Gillian's persistence, follow-up and professional knowledge were all top notch. In the most difficult times of social distancing and additional safety protocols, her positive energy is never waned. " - Jim and Ellie

"(WONDERFUL TEAM) You two, Gillian and Prentiss, are a wonderful team. You're transparent, competent and honest. This is what people want. " -Dr Susan T.

"(10 NOTCHES ABOVE) I have bought and sold several homes over the years utilizing many different realtors. I have to say, working with Gillian is ten notches above any other experience I have had with a realtor. Her level of service is off the charts, starting with repairing and staging the home all the way through the final sale. She is extremely responsive, professional, positive, and enthusiastic. Best of all, she is a joy to work with! I would HIGHLY recommend Gillian to anyone who is contemplating buying or selling a home. " - Bill G

"(PRENTISS IS A WINNER) Prentiss Van Den Berg is a very hard-working, responsive and knowledgeable real estate professional. I have worked with Prentiss for a couple years and her input and insights have always been spot on. She is very ethical, smart, strategic and thoughtful. " - Mark R.

"(CONCIERGE LEVEL OF SERVICE) Gillian was a fantastic partner in my home purchase. In a complicated transaction Gillian navigated various issues with ease. She has a solid team behind her and all matters were handled expertly. More than this she provided supportive and thoughtful guidance throughout the process. There was a regular pattern of extra value delivered as Gillian brought skilled trade people to various matters. She was there personally for each discussion and represented my interests strongly. This was truly a concierge level experience. I highly recommend Gillian. " - Walt C.

"(Clear communication and my needs were always the priority as the seller) Gillian Gillies and Prentiss Van Den Berg were a pleasure to work with, both for my recent home sale and my new home purchase. They are friendly, knowledgeable and open, focused on first understanding my needs and preferences, then systematic, transparent and thorough in their professional approach to develop a game plan, ultimately selling my home and working with me to buy another. I highly recommend them if you are either buying or selling. Gillian was the lead agent in my transactions, but Prentiss was always fully up to speed on everything, stepping in seamlessly whenever necessary to keep things moving forward. Gillian and Prentiss are professional in everything they do but two characteristics stuck out; they were in constant communication with me through the whole process and there was never a delay whenever they had an "action item." They were on it immediately and got back to me with status updates until it was complete. " - Nelson B.
