From the very beginning of my transactions with Gretchen she is always on top of every detail no matter big or small. She is diligent with her research to make certain she is providing the best advice regarding selling and/or purchasing prices and strategies. Gretchen is quick to respond to any concerns or questions, and highly proactive in gathering and providing accurate information timely. Gretchen works with excellent contractors to help satisfy conditions within deals and resolves issues quickly, quietly, and competently. I have never felt out of the loop, and have never felt stressed when Gretchen has been part of a transaction with me. She has a great eye for staging properties as well, which has meant fewer hassles when trying to get a new home set up. She is gracious, tough, and expert in her field, which makes her my first phone call when I start thinking about real estate.
You are incredibly dedicated to your craft, communicate effectively and are as professional as they come.
You set standards that others in your field should ascribe to on a day to day basis.
Thank you very much for making this entire experience a very pleasant one. We are very pleased with our Mercer Island home, but we are sure that it won’t be the last. We’ll plan to embark on this venture again with you sometime in the future.
in both, meaning she is up to date with any and all information she needs, she has
given me beyond 100%, is always there to answer to ALL questions, and is quick to return calls. But beyond her role as a Broker, she became a therapist (during those times when things didn’t seem to go the way I originally expected), a teacher (explaining to me the whys and hows things were progressing the way they were) and an advocate (going to bat for her clients to ensure that I get a fair and appropriate deal).
I have worked with a few other Brokers in my life who seemed to be very helpful in their endeavors, but Gretchen always takes it a few miles beyond my expectations. I am forever grateful. Therefore, I would like to think she plays another role and that is, a good friend. They just don’t make them any better. I guarantee it. I am proud to recommend her to anyone who wants an honest educated and responsible Broker. You will absolutely see the difference!
She knew what needed to be done and did it.
Thank you Gretchen for making our home sale and new home purchase a great experience!
You made everything easy and smooth in spite of some major challenges and having you as my realtor was obviously a tremendous advantage for me.
I can hardly believe the beautiful home that I am now in. It is better than what I imagined would be possible and I am so happy here! You found a perfect match for me and what I wanted.
Thank you from my heart Gretchen!
Thank you so much for all your hard work Gretchen, you have seriously been amazing through this whole thing and I really don’t know what we would have done without you!
“Gretchen was able to assess our needs and apply her knowledge of the area to find us several places that would be great fits. What we decided on was in the perfect location, price, and future investment for us. I really felt like I was dealing with a friend by the time it was all done and am excited for when it comes time to work with her again to find my next place.”
Gretchen recently listed our home, representing us as the seller. Her services and the marketing of our home was above and beyond our expectations. She has great communication and negotiating skills and pays attention to every small detail, including the paperwork.
We highly recommend Gretchen Allen as your agent.
Thank you Gretchen!
Gretchen Allen as real estate broker for both transactions. By definition,
such times are stressful and complex, and Gretchen’s role was absolutely
essential in moving us through the process to completion.
Gretchen Allen has that rare quality of combining fine professional skills
and experience with genuine personal integrity and warmth. We learned
first-hand that she is a tough negotiator for the interests of her clients,
and that she has a sharp eye for detail; somehow Gretchen managed to focus
on our situation as if we were her only clients, making herself available to
us seemingly at all hours, and on issues large and small.
We were particularly impressed by her ability to accomodate and cope with
our special complication, e.g. major surgery and recovery throughout the
selling and buying process.
We recommend Gretchen Allen with enthusiasm and without reservation. She is
a bright star in the crowded sky of real estate professionals.
