Testimonials

“We cannot day enough positive things about Gayle. We looked at a ton of houses and each one she was prepared for our questions with information on the listing and area. She updated us daily with listings and market information which truly helped us find our home. She’s always on time and always available. She made our purchase seamless. Buying is stressful but Gayle made it so easy. Any and all questions and issues that we had were handled and answered quickly. We would not only recommend Gayle to friends and family, we would use Gayle’s services again in the future if/when we need them. She was amazing to work with and I am so happy she was referred to us.”

“Pleased with the whole process from start to finish. Gayle was always available for advice and recommendations. The final sales as negotiated by Gaye was fair an reasonable. From what I understand, the market was slow during our sales period and Gayle was able to steer us to a final contract. Would recommend Gayle to any prospective sellers”

“Gayle was amazing! We saw so many houses trying to find just the right one and she was so patient and understood our needs. Her knowledge of the area was invaluable since we are relative new to NOVA. Once we found the right house she was tenacious in negotiations and making sure our interests were protected. This was our first time working with Gayle and we would definitely work with her again! ”

“Gayle to this day remains the most knowledgeable and professional realtor we have ever worked with. Her positivity, knowledge, and unmatchable work ethic easily distinguishes herself from every realtor in the area. We worked with Gayle when we purchased our first home in Leesburg and she was the first person we reached out to when we were just entertaining the idea of selling our home. Gayle surrounds her self with the best staff imaginable and both Gayle and her staff dedicate themselves to providing the best buying/selling experience possible.”

“Gayle King is an excellent realtor. The whole process of buying and selling went very smoothly because of her guidance and expertise. Her years of experience were evident right from the initial meeting. She has a great personality and made us feel very comfortable with the details of buying and selling our houses. She was able to quickly locate a house for us that was perfect for our specific needs and she was knowledgeable about the local community surrounding the neighborhood. Gayle always had a positive outlook and was easy accessible for any concerns or questions that we had concerning the process.”

“Sometimes one may have difficulty describing an experience. However, it's very easy to describe a transaction when your Realtor is Gayle King. My Virginia rental property was recently vacated and I wanted to sell. I live out of state and didn't want to fly into town and inspect the property and/or assess the necessary repairs. I contacted Gayle because I knew that I could trust her opinions and suggestions, so I asked her for a huge favor. Within 48 hours, she accomplished the following: obtained a key to the property, evaluated the condition and necessary repairs, created a comparative market analysis, drafted a contract, and scheduled cleaners and a repairman. The property sold within a few weeks with constant communication from Gayle. This was an absolute flawless transaction. Thank you, Gayle. ”

“Gayle was incredibly responsive, walked us through every step of the purchase, and went above and beyond at every turn she could. If you are looking for the easiest experience when it comes to buying a home, I would recommend Gayle.”

“For a 24 year old first time home buyer, Gayle King gained our trust right off the get go. She took all the stress out of finding a house. She was honest and transparent and that made us very comfortable to work with her. We are very thankful that she gave us her honest opinions, even when we didn't necessarily want to hear them. There were a couple houses we loved, and passed up on because of her advice and insight, and we look back and we are just thankful we listened to her because she led us to the perfect house under our budget, and we fall more in love with it everyday. If it's your first house or your last, I would recommend Gayle any day.”

“We worked with Gayle to buy this townhome 3.5 years ago and we didn't hesitate to rely on her when it came time to sell (and buy our new house!). Gayle again exceeded our expectations, with her acute attention to detail and ability to communicate quickly and clearly. She answered any question we had candidly and openly, ensuring we were well informed and making the best decisions based on our needs at every step. We highly recommend Gayle. She's wonderful to work with and truly cares about her clients.”

“Having a good business reputation was important to my wife and I. Century 21 is very known and been in the business for decades so knowing that they've stood the test of time was of great value for us. Gayle King has been a pleasure to work with. We initially met at an open house that she was the agent for and we really appreciated her approach and "style". We liked her so much since our initial chance meeting that we selected her to represent the sale of our home. Gayle King is a true professional, she informed us of her notional plan but also wanted to know what we wanted from the sale of our home. Expectations were set from the beginning and the sale of our home and the new home met above our expectations! The relationship has been mutually beneficial and we could not be happier with the results. The sale has been great, couldn't imagine it being better. We were able to sell our house in a day!! We received multiple offers in 1/2 a day, what else can you ask for?? If you could top that, Gayle King was able to show us a home that was not even on the market. We ultimately ended up putting an offer on the house pre-listing which helped us avoid a bidding war. Thanks to Gayle King, we found our "Dream Home". Thanks!”

Very patient and will not rush you or make you feel pressured to make a sale/deal. Has previous experience working for a home builder, so was able to ask pertinent questions in regards to building a new home. Gayle is a professional, friendly, and strong client advocate. We would recommend her to family and friends! ”

“Gayle was simply incredible. We were on a very short timeline to find a home; Gayle was so proactive in helping us find options, see homes, negotiate a great deal and be there every step of the way until we closed. Gayle was flexible and understanding and went above and beyond the call of duty. Gayle takes a personal approach and helps her clients with the same passion that drives her to be one of the best realtors in Northern Virginia. Anyone looking to sell or buy a home would be lucky to have Gayle!”

“Gayle King provided me and my family with excellent service in our home buying process. She was recommended to us by a trusted friend and we are so grateful for that recommendation. Gayle was always on time, polite and knowledgeable. She answered any and every question we had, even those that popped up on late nights while considering several homes. We would recommend Gayle over and over again to anyone looking for a trusted and friendly real estate agent! ”

“I can honestly say, purchasing a home with Gayle King as our advisor was the best buying experiences we've ever had. From the first conversation, Gayle took the time to listen to our needs in a polite and courteous way. It was clear she was far different than a typical "Know-it-all-Realtor". Not only did she take the time to truly align our needs to a variety of options, but she was very considerate of our budget and never asked us to extend ourself beyond what we were comfortable with. As we worked through the different options, her local knowledge was on full display as she helped us see how choosing one location over another would impact our day-to-day lifestyle. Then, when we finally put the offer in and deadlines quickly approached, she was right by our side making late night phone calls to ensure every little detail was completed so we could enjoy our big day. If you are looking for a true professional in the Northern Virginia real estate market, I would highly recommend Gayle King as the one and only phone call you make. ”

“Gayle King was great throughout the entire process and very patient with us. My husband and I were first time home-buyers and purchased new construction. Gayle helped negotiate us an outstanding deal (the best in the community so far) and was really helpful when we hit bumps in the process on the builders side. Through the process I know we were not the easiest clients but she always took the time to talk with me and offer guidance. She also went to bat for us when needed and we definitely felt a sense of protection working with her knowing she wouldn't let us get taken advantage of despite our lack of experience with the process. I can't say enough good things... we are very thankful for Gayle!”

“As always, Gayle is simply the best. Gayle is beyond knowledgable of the market, the trends and was able to use all her resources to advise and lead the sale of our home even though no other homes were selling in our surrounding area during that period of time. Gayle, whether as her client or someone on the other side of the negotiation table treats everyone with respect and ultimate professionalism. I have seen Gayle disarm the most difficult situations in a calm and helpful manner and obtain a mutually agreeable resolution- always keeping her client's best interests in mind.”

“We have worked with Gayle on multiple properties with great success. She helped locate prospective properties that fit the needs of my company. Together we developed an acquisition strategy that fit within our parameters and she set it in motion and delivered outstanding results. When it came time to list our property she had already a marketing plan in place for us and we were on the market within days. Our property sold in less than a week with multiple offers. ”
