Thank you again for all your hard work Gretchen.
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.
With Gretchen, it’s all in the details, proactive thinking and diligent delivery of what she told us she could do. Her actions have showed us her commitment and dedication to selling our house. She has always been one step ahead of us as to what needed to be done to sell our house. We think she is not only brilliant, but also hardworking. From the photo session to pictures selection, flyer and brochure design, staging ideas, open house presentation, feature cards, she has stamped her trademark every step of the way. I highly recommended her to anyone who is looking for an agent who is pleasant and ease to work with and at the same time who is experienced, confident and brilliant with a strong will and full heart to deliver her service to help you succeed!
Gretchen was not only professional in her delivery, she was effective, friendly and caring. She takes personal responsibility to create a great experience for the seller and buyer. The process of selling my home was easy. Thank you Gretchen!!!
Gretchen has been absolutely amazing to work with while selling my boss’s house. She has been available whenever we needed her and has been very responsive with calls, texts and emails. She has been very involved in all aspects of the sale and getting the house ready for closing. I would highly recommend Gretchen if you are selling your house! I look forward to using her in the next year when I sell mine!!! She not only staged the house beautifully but brought just very interested buyers to look at the home! There was an offer on the house in just a couple of weeks!! Thank you Gretchen, you have been such a pleasure to work with!!
Our Realtor, Broker Gretchen Allen is a treasure. After two sorely disappointing real estate agent experiences, we finally struck gold with Gretchen. Her work, integrity, competency, and professionalism are stellar. She responds quickly and efficiently to all emails and phone calls, and updates her clients promptly. Her brochures and advertising are first class. First and foremost, however, she is honest, ethical, and genuinely cares about her clients. Eloquent and impressively tactful, Gretchen excels as an accomplished negotiator, especially when dealing with difficult and demanding agents and buyers. She makes every effort to negotiate a win-win situation for both the buyer and the seller. This affable woman is a rare find! We feel extremely fortunate to have her as our listing agent and would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.
We have sold several homes and we have never had an agent work as hard for us as Gretchen Allen. I would give her more stars if they were available. She was in contact with us every step of the way. She was always optimistic and listened to us every step of the way. Your home is very personal to you and selling it can be an emotional experience. She was always very understanding of that. I have already recommended her, even before our home sold, because we knew that our friends would be as grateful for her as we were. You will not go wrong when you hire Gretchen. I have often felt that in the past a frustration with the amount we had to pay our realtor and wondered if I really felt they had earned it. Never once did I feel this way with Gretchen. You will love working with her!
Choosing Gretchen Allen as our agent was the best real estate decision my husband and I have made to date. Her knowledge of the area, communication skills, professionalism and attention to detail are absolutely impeccable and far surpassed my expectations. Gretchen cared so much for my family’s best interest it was as if we had a member of the family working for us. She truly made me feel like I was her only client – responding promptly to any and all communications, diligently researching and site checking homes for us, spending a large amount of time with our family viewing homes and giving us her undivided attention at all times. I highly recommend Gretchen Allen and will definitely be calling her for all of our family’s future real estate needs.
Gretchen Allen has been a stellar resource for our Real Estate buying and selling needs for over a year now. As our family was preparing to leave Washington State to move to California, and had several properties in Chelan WA and a residence in Duvall to sell before we could leave, we had a need for a Real Estate professional with excellent marketing and communication skills. Gretchen certainly delivered, and even over-delivered, in both categories. She was with us every step of the way in the marketing and sale of our properties and made our dream of moving home to be closer to our aging parents and rest of our family a reality. I would recommend Gretchen Allen in the sale and purchase of properties, high-end homes, vacation homes, lots and all things real estate.
“Gretchen Allen has been a huge blessing to our family! She was very knowledgeable and caring as she led us through the journey of selling our home. And when needed she was very capable of fighting for us and our best interest. God knew what He was doing when He brought Gretchen into our lives. We interviewed a total of five agents to list our home and we are so thankful that she was the Realtor we chose for this process!”
We are extremely happy with all the services Gretchen Allen has provided in the sale of our home. She was always available, personable, positive and willing to go the extra mile for us. She kept in touch with us frequently and updated us on the status to reassure us things were moving along. Her knowlege, experience and the sophisticated computer system available to her ‘wowed us’. During this process we lived a distance from our home for sale and Gretchen was always willing to check on our house and make sure it was presentable at all times.The staging was our house was beautiful. We would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.
My wife and I had decided to sell our house and a friend highly recommended Gretchen. We were not disappointed. From the very beginning of the process she was very informative and went out of her way to help ensure we made the right decisions through the entire process. I don’t think we could have had a better experience. Without hesitation, I will be recommending Gretchen to any friend and family member who plan to sell their house in the future.
I would highly recommend Gretchen Allen as your go to real estate professional. Gretchen has the ability to focus on the work at hand without being drawn into the drama that can sometimes be a part of the negotiation process. I was very comfortable with her feel for the deal. I am not the type of person that is typically looking for advice. However, Gretchen is so experienced in her craft that I found myself asking her if she thought I was on the right track. I was posted on all important aspects of our deal without being bothered with the superfluous detail that is the boiler plate of the deal. I would describe my experience with Gretchen as being totally professional with warm side to it. Gretchen will be involved in my next real estate transaction and I would recommend that you do the same.
Gretchen Allen was a delight to work with. She was always optimistic and upbeat in a depressing market taking over the listing of our home from another Realtor who was not able to sell our home over 90 days. We found her to be very knowledgeable of the East side market and its trends, and easily reachable at any time. She had a large bank of resources from which to draw at any time. A particular strength of Gretchen’s was her determination and stick-to-itness to follow through on issues especially with other Realtors. Her best strength was she got the job done i.e. she sold our home.
Dick and I wanted to thank you for providing the perfect home buying experience for us. The process was made virtually stress-free due to your expertise and professionalism. From the first home we viewed to the final one we purchased, you took care to complete your homework, so you had the answers before we asked the questions. You gave so willingly of your evenings, weekends and yes, two holidays, to ensure we were able to move forward smoothly. You made us feel like your only clients, even though we knew how busy you were. You made time for every email, text, phone call or whatever we needed at the time. Please know that you made all the difference in the world for us in getting through the home buying process. We are in love with our log home and look forward to sharing the beauty of the home and the area with family and friends for years and years to come. We are anxious to share our home buying experience with anyone and everyone who asks – and will be excited to send them your way. By the way, I looked up “real estate expert and professional” in the dictionary and wasn’t at all surprised to see your picture! Thank you for everything.
“Gretchen was referred to me by a good friend. She was touted as being professional, knowledgeable, and thorough. She is that and much more! She helped me pick a location that was perfect for me, and helped me through a difficult sale in a tough market. She is amazing and the best real estate professional I have ever met! She was always calm, was able to handle very challenging situations, knows real estate backwards and forwards, knows the up to the minute market conditions, and returned my calls immediately. We had two transactions going at the same time, and she made me feel like I was her most important client! She is a one of a kind agent.”
Selling one’s dream home can be a very emotional experience, and in a buyer’s market it is especially difficult. We were very pleased to have Gretchen handle our sale and do most of the worrying for us. Her cherry disposition and attention to all the marketing details resulted in a successful sale in a timely manner. We recommend her highly.
We could not be happier with the service that Gretchen has given us. She listened to what it was we were looking for and then, with difficult perameters, she found the perfect piece of property for us. She helped us every step. She was completely available to us. We never had to go throught someone else, we had direct communication with her at all times literally! She also did a great job of selling our other home, with her attention to detail, our house showed like a model. Her advertising, brochures, open houses etc…. all of it did exactly what we needed. We had to close on a specific date and that is exactly what happened. I am happy to say that not only is Gretchen our Broker, she is also my friend and both David and I look forward to working with her again.
My husband and I relocated from outside of Washington and slected Gretchen based on a recommendation from a local real estate investor. She was very knowledgable about all areas around Seattle which I relied upon. She searched for properties on a daily basis and was always very quick to respond. Once we found a house, Gretchen ensured we were the most competitive offer. There were 16 offers on the house but its ours and I attribute that to Gretchen. We are very happy and would work with her again.
I selected Gretchen to be my Broker after walking through a home that she was representing. Her high standards of professionalism and attention to detail in her work were the things that I noticed immediately. Gretchen also surrounds herself with an entire team of professionals of similar character who collaborate to help her clients throughout the process of buying and selling homes. I would have been lost without her help and support in the sale of my former home and relocation to my new home. She is a delight to work with and I would recommend her highly to any of my friends.
“If you’re looking for a thorough and dependable Broker, look no further than Gretchen! She knows her business and pays attention to the smallest details. We would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home or condo.
Gretchen Allen was a Broker for me both as a buyer and a seller. Not only is she great
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!
We moved out of state before listing, and we completely depended on Gretchen to do our job in addition to hers. Without Gretchen fielding calls, meeting service people, dealing with our renters and making herself available on our schedule we could never have sold as quickly as we did and for the price we received.
Working with Gretchen was so easy. We didn’t have to worry about anything.
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!
