Testimonials from Past Clients

 

We sold a townhouse in Columbia in 2016 and purchased 2 separate condos; one in Ellicott City and one in Owings Mills. Gretchen was there every step of the way with calm and steady guidance. She is always available with great ideas of how to clear out clutter with many helpful resources in her pocket. She was very calm and patient throughout the entire process of selling one home and for the two of us buying separate properties. I would use her services again! -Scott


Gretchen helped us get out of our first home through the short sale process then 5 years later helped us buy our “forever” home. She is and was so helpful, caring, and knowledgeable through the entire process.  I would recommend her to anyone needing a true professional who wants the best for you and your family to represent you. -Sam


Gretchen helped us find our home in 2016. She is very knowledgeable about Howard County, patient, and always willing to show us all the homes we wanted to see. She is a very professional and helpful agent who made the difficult process of finding and buying a home as easy as it can be. -Viola


Gretchen has handled two successful transactions for me both as a buyer and seller. I am very happy with her professionalism, attention to the fine details of sales and an overall pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her and plan on using her again next time. -Richard


We’ve bought two homes and sold the first with Gretchen as our agent. She exhibits exceptional communication skills, both written and verbal, which are highly prized in such BIG purchases. Would definitely recommend her services. -Lance


Gretchen was an excellent Realtor.  She was kind, friendly, and on time with finding us a new home.  I would definitely work with Gretchen again in the future, and recommend her to my friends.  -Roslyn


Gretchen was such a huge help in not only finding our forever home, but more importantly giving me a great understanding of the new area that we were moving to. Her knowledge went a long, long way. She was super helpful, patient, and took the time to really fit our needs. I very highly recommend Gretchen! -Angela


I have known Gretchen for 6 years and she is one of the most dedicated agents I know.  She is very focused on keeping up with the latest trends in education to better serve her customers.  I would recommend you give her a call and make buying or selling a smooth transaction. -Terry


Gretchen knows the community, the real estate market and the process–but best of all, she’s a good listener. She paid attention to what I said and to what I didn’t say. Rather than convince me that moving to the DC area meant a major change in my life style, she found the house everyone else said didn’t exist. She worked hard to help me find my new home; if I even move again, she’s the first call I’ll make.  -Monica


Gretchen Conley is a savior. I had given up trying to sell a house and I was about to let it go and suffer the consequences until I was rescued by Gretchen. She and her team contacted me, and quickly took on my problem and turned it around. Her team’s strength lies in their ability to take cases that others have given up on then creating positive results. When the banks were not cooperative and failure seemed inevitable, Gretchen pressed on patiently with my case. She is a consummate professional with a caring team; they went above and beyond what typical realtors will do to help and that made a difference. I would recommend her without hesitation and would seek her assistance in a heartbeat. And by the way, did I mention that I never met her or anyone of her team in person? From the initial phone conversation with her I was confident that she is trustworthy, and my instinct was right. Now…the house is sold.  -Taher


A lot can be said for agent Gretchen Conley. She has an easy approach and that’s comforting to me as a seller. She knows her stuff and works incredibly hard to draw in qualified buyers. Would I go back to her? You bet! And any chance I can refer Gretchen to either a buyer or seller, her name’s at the top of the list.  -Jon H.


My former spouse had used Gretchen when we first separated and he needed to find a rental property very quickly in the community where we lived so that our son would not have a long way to travel between homes. He was very impressed with how quickly she found him a place, as she was always on the lookout for a new listing.  We interviewed a couple of agents but decided on Gretchen because she had been so helpful. She also gave us nononsense, professional advice on how to display our home at its very best, and we did everything she suggested because I knew instinctively that SHE was the best. She proved my instincts right, because we received multiple offers in our first days on the market! Gretchen Conley knows what she is doing, she has the education and licensing to prove it, and most of all… she proves it by her results! I would highly recommend Gretchen and I plan on referring her often. -Tara D.


This is by far the most pleasant home buying experience for my family. We enjoyed every interaction with Gretchen. Throughout the whole house hunting process, we were not pushed or rushed. Instead, Gretchen provided us the most sincere and honest suggestions. We are so grateful for your professional expertise. And we love our new home very much.  -G I J


Gretchen Conley was the first Realtor that I had used to purchase a home, and she embraced that role. She knew that I was a first time home buyer, and took that into consideration when explaining the format of buying, negotiating an offer, and closing on a home. She was available and ready to help every step of the way. Gretchen made me feel like I was her only client, throughout the entire process. She answered all of my questions, and if she didn’t know the answers herself, she spoke with others and responded to me very quickly. After closing on the home, Gretchen has been proactive in helping me with home projects, by recommending individuals (such as plumbers, carpet layers, and locksmiths) that she knows will do a good job. My sister and brother-in-law used Gretchen a couple years ago, and recommended her to me because of her great work as their Realtor. I feel I have built a bond with Gretchen, and will communicate with her periodically. I would definitely recommend Gretchen to anyone I know that is buying or selling a home.  -Molly S.


I would refer my mother to Gretchen if she wanted to buy in Howard County.  She has the highest personal ethics and works tirelessly for her clients’ benefit.    She is absolutely awesome!! -Debbie


Gretchen was very patient, very knowledgeable.  We will certainly recommend her in the future without hesitation! – Rebecca & Kevin


Gretchen helped us find our house in a matter of weeks! The process was so fast and easy, and she was incredibly professional. She really does go above and beyond when it comes to taking care of her clients! She listened to all of our requests, and allowed us to make the best decision, instead of being pushy. And her attention to detail was outstanding. A++ Would definitely recommend. -Melissa


She was very helpful, responsive, and professional.  Emails were answered immediately.  Our sale was quick, and she did all she could to make the process as smooth as possible for us!!!  -Barbara

 

Gretchen was very professional and was very good at understanding my husband and I’s specific requests (and we were very particular!!).  She was very knowledgeable about the area and I would recommend her to everyone looking for a home in the area!  -Laurel condo owner

 

Ms. Conley presents both sides of our questions.  She tells us historical happenings, provides printouts, whatever we need to think through our decisions.  She gives us the tools and time to reach our own decisions.  My husband and I are generally not fast actors with big decisions.  Ms. Conley respected our desire to weigh matters before deciding on a course of action.  This is the second time we have worked with her and I recommend her to my friends regularly.  -Adrienne and Will

 

Gretchen is a well organized and thoughtful professional.  I admire her computer savvy and the systems she has put in place to be the kind of REALTOR with whom I have been proud to work.  She also donates time to local organizations, keeping her involved in the community and aware of current issues.  It is no wonder to me that her clients consider her a trusted friend. 

-Linda Kangrga

 

As an experienced agent, Gretchen puts the interests of her clients first, protecting and guiding them through the process of purchasing and/or selling a home.  She is a pleasure to work with and enjoys many referrals, an excellent testimony to the competent, thorough and client-centered service she provides.  -Ida Reis

 

I have had the privilege of working with Gretchen in a small master-mind group, as well as the Howard County Legislative Committee.  Gretchen is knowledgeable, organized and detail oriented.  She is a Realtor that will be prepared to take care of her clients’ needs, no matter what the market.  I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Gretchen at both a professional and a personal level.  -Judith Gordon
