“Gayle is incredibly knowledgeable, easy to work with and understands the housing market in and out! She is meticulous in her sales and marketing tactics, as well as her continuous communication with “us” as the sellers. ”

“Gayle King came highly recommended by a close friend. She was very responsive and explained the entire process to me the first time we met. She was upfront and very honest during the entire process. During open houses she made impactful comments based on her vast experience in the local area/housing market. Gayle was very professional during the negotiation process always looking out for me. She made reasonable suggestions to ensure that I could close on the house that I wanted. Since then she has provided many recommendations for the local areas and businesses. Gayle King made my first home buying experience easy and exciting. I used a VA Loan and she knew the entire process to complete the sale. From first contact to the day the keys were handed over to me I was confident in every step of the process. Gayle will be the only agent that I use going forward. ”

“Purchasing a home while deployed overseas was effortless working with Gayle. Despite the time differences, she was always responsive to inquiries and extremely knowledgable about the market and area. Even COVID-19 couldn't hamper Gayle from going above and beyond. She was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend working with Gayle to anyone who is deployed overseas and looking to purchase a home.”

“My family and I have been working with Gayle since 2017 when she helped us buy our first home. We recently relocated back to Northern VA from Hawaii. Gayle has been a wealth of information since day one. Helping us move back across the country with a 6 hour time difference was no easy task. She made the transition smooth and always kept us at the top of her priority list, answering any and all questions we had! She is always professional, hardworking and ensures her clients that she will get the job done. After buying two homes and selling one with Gayle, there’s not enough words to express how highly she is recommended. An absolute joy to work with. Thank you Gayle!”

“We were trying to buy a house from overseas and Gayle was more than willing to help us with the selection process by providing opportunities to FaceTime and give us a tour of each house. She was patient and never too pushy throughout the process. Gayle went above and beyond in regards to negotiating the price and terms of the purchase. We would have had no idea what to negotiate and look for as first time homebuyers. During the tour of the house she spotted several areas that may come up in the home inspection and sure enough her attention to detail was spot on. We were incredibly thankful to have Gayle in our corner throughout this process. Furthermore, her knowledge of the area reassured us we were making the right decision for our family. Gayle is obviously a veteran of the real estate industry. We recommend her to anyone looking to find a house in the Northern Virginia area!”

“Hiring Gayle King to represent us in both our sale and purchase was the best decision we could have made! I am almost hesitant to use the word "hiring" because she did not make us feel like she was working for us, she made us feel like she was personally going through the home buying process as if it were her own home. She navigated us through every decision we had to make on the sale of our home and purchase of our new construction home. Gayle negotiated certain critical items in the contract with the Builder that most agents wouldn't have even thought of, due to her previous experience working for builder. I would highly recommend her to family and friends. ”

“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. ”

“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.”
Caleb, Haymarket VA (Buyer)

“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!”

“Most knowledgeable agent we have come across, also family friend for many years. Aware of market trends and helped put us in the best place to be successful. 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! ”

“My search lasted for a year due to my circumstances and Gayle King' was extraordinarily patient during that time. When I was ready to purchase, her speedy action, negotiation skills and local market knowledge resulted in finding the right one in a short period of time. I would highly recommend Gayle King for anyone who is looking for a property in the area.”
