Testimonials

"We picked the Gillies Team after interviewing two other agents. We knew another family who used them for a sale, and were very impressed. We were not disappointed with the level of effort, and the professional effort that Cindy, Mike, and Michael all put into getting our house ready for sale, and then sold. We were never given any false expectations. The market research and analysis that they provided up front, and then regularly updated, was helpful in expectation management. We were under contract in six weeks at a time when properties were not moving very quickly. Their combined skills in bringing the offer to a contract and then to closing was, in a word, superior. They kept us informed at each step in the process without being intrusive. When there was something we did not understand, they were quick to explain. Following their advice, we got a great price. Last but not least, closing with their assistance was as smooth as silk. We had just experienced a rocky time two months before when we closed on our new home, so this one was an unexpected pleasure. We give them our highest and strongest recommendation."

"The Gillies Team was on top of the details of our listing from the very beginning. It was a complicated sale, and they continued to be out in front paving the way for a successful conclusion to the process. They understand the intricacies of real estate, and that knowledge serves the needs of their clients incredibly well. Their commitment to their clients and to seeing the process through is unmatched in my experience."
-- Bill and Brenda Simpson

"The Gillies Team was awesome to work with. As a Service Member serving overseas they were instrumental in making a home purchase 8572 miles away a simple and uncomplicated process. They did the one thing that most in sales do not do.....they LISTENED. They listened to my concerns, worries, needs and even the things I didn't actually verbalized but knew I needed. I highly and enthusiastically recommend them for buyers and sellers.."
-- Stephen & Valerie Guyton

"Michael Gillies was a very motivated agent. Even with the snow fall of Jan 2010 (and him stepping off a snow covered driveway into a ditch and sinking up to his waist in snow) he still had no complaints about house hunting with me. We managed to look at close to 100 houses in person and many more on paper. I usually do not refer people/businesses, but I would refer Michael to anyone I hear talking about buying or selling. He listened to what I wanted, what I wanted to spend and found exactly what I was looking for. It did not matter if it was a snow day for everyone else or a Saturday or Sunday, he was ALWAYS willing to assist me. He earned my business and respect. As a customer and as a friend.

2014 The Gillies team came through again and sold the same house they helped us purchase in 2010. They were just as great working with selling as they were when we bought it. They were dead on market value. The process went smoothly.."

-- David & Julie Burks

"Not only did they help my family sell our house they also helped us purchase one. They had great knowledge and kept us informed the whole time. This is only the second time I purchased a home, so I'm no pro, but the first time we did the Realtor was not the greatest. This time we had a great experience."
-- Andrew Zarnowski

"We had a really fantastic experience with the Gillies Team. They helped us find a new home and sell the home we currently owned in an extremely short period of time. They were even able to handle all the paperwork digitally while we were out of country for three weeks! Everything went very smoothly and that is completely due to the knowledge and expertise of the Gillies Team. Although we hope to live in our new home for many years, we would definitely use the Gillies Team again for any future home buying/selling and we will happily refer people to them."
-- Renee Dalziel

"We were recommended to Michael and the Gilles Team from a friend and knew from day one that our choice was the best decision we made! Throughout the whole process Michael was extremely attentive to our every need. We had several changes to our want list and Michael was there to update our search list and point out specific homes and neighborhoods that he recommended. We didn't feel pushed or rushed into anything at any point. Michael made sure we felt comfortable going into each offer and made sure we knew what we were getting into. Michael was also there after closing to help us get in contact with some local companies that could help with blinds windows, etc. We would recommend Michael and the Gilles to team to anyone!"
-- David Sutton

"The Gillies turned out to be people that we could really trust as our advocates. They listened to what we needed, took us to every home we wanted to see and suggested others as well, and helped us every step of the way. They were extremely knowledgeable about the area and the whole real estate process, as well as helpful with many other questions we had regarding appraisals, inspections, home repairs, and HOA issues. We were out of town for the entire escrow period, and they stayed on top of everything, taking care of so many details and fighting our battles for us. We'll definitely be calling them when it's time to sell!"
-- Renda Kiper

"The Gillies' family was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and full of good ideas. Cindy's recommendation to stage the house was the setup that allowed my house to sell with only 26 days on the market. Mike advised me on what was necessary to pass the home inspection process. Any questions I had were answered with intuitive retrospect and knowledge. I would highly recommend this family in all future real estate endeavors."
-- Joe Palermo

"Extremely competent and professional, cool, calm and committed during the entire process, with excellent follow-up..if you have a house to sell you want Cindy, Mike, and Michael working for you."

"We were in a very specific situation, looking for a house from Switzerland. We came in contact with Michael, and this has been a more than wonderful experience. Michael went the extra mile for us (did I say mile? I mean many, many miles), gave us daily updates of what was and what came on the market fitted to our wishlist. Not knowing the US market, and being 4,000 miles away, it was extremely important to have an realtor that we could trust for the full 100%. Although more than 100% doesn't exist, Michael still managed to exceed our expectations. We had several visits to the area, and Michael always took ample time to show us houses, and with lots of patience explained us the pros and cons. Earlier this year we made a purchase, and the handling of the purchase went very smooth, and even after closing Michael was still available to give us advice and help us when we needed help. Superlatives are not invented yet to describe the feeling of service, commitment and honesty we got from Michael. Big thank you!"
-- Jan and Zana Van Hecke

"I just wanted to drop you an email to let you know how pleased we were with The Gillies Team during the recent purchase of our new home.  They were adamant professionals who were with us the entire way to ensure everything went smooth and efficiently.  They were always there to answer any questions we had and gave us honest advice when we needed it.  The Gillies Team was highly recommended to me by another Marine who had used them when he recently purchased his new home.  I will certainly do the same with anyone I know that will be looking to purchase a home in the area."
-- Jules Thompson

"Gayle and I want to thank you very sincerely for your exceptionally kind and professional help as we went through our home buying experience.  We went through this from the opposite coast...You were there through it all and you were our "friend" in Virginia.  You have great people working there and we could not have asked for a better team to look out for us."
-- Steve & Gayle Suddreth

"Elaine and I wanted to thank you for all your outstanding service during the sale of our townhouse.  You did an outstanding job during a time when the market was somewhat slow.  The sale helped me move on time as I plan to move to San Antonio."

-- Randal LeBlanc

"Hi Cindy, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how happy my mom seems to be.  What a relief to have sold her house so quickly.  She doesn't even realize the market that we are in...I can't thank you enough for all your help and kindness in selling my mom's house.  My mother turns 80 years old this coming January and I think she is really happy in her life."
-- Robin O'Donnell - Real Estate Agent - Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts

"Thank you very much for the outstanding knowledge and expertise you provided with the sale of my Stafford home.  Your extensive sales experience made the selling process quick and painless!  Your comprehensive market analysis helped us to competitively price the house, and your property marketing expertise provided the house with extensive visibility that attracted potential buyers from around the VA metro area.  Within two months of going on the market we had a contract on the house.  Thank you again for your outstanding service, support, and wise advice."
