"We moved to Stafford from California. Michael spent every minute with us when we came out for our house hunting trip. He was amazing and we now live in our dream house! Michael is very professional and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend him and the Gillies Team! They know this area better than anyone and will work tirelessly to help buy or sell your home!"
-- Matt and Sunshine Vernon
"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
"The Gillies Team, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you did to help us sell our home! We appreciate all your efforts and your outstanding customer service! Much love to you."

"I just want to say that real estate professionals like Cindy and Michael Gillies reflect positively on your company and the real estate profession as a whole. Realtors who follow through with their promises, put their client first and go that extra mile to satisfy the needs of the customer are few and far between. I know the first call I'll make to a real estate company in the very likely event that I get transferred back to Virginia will be to Coldwell Banker Elite and I'll specifically ask for Cindy and Michael Gillies."
-- Michael J. Root - United States Department of Justice - DEA
"From our initial meeting with Cindy to discuss Coldwell Banker Elite services and Cindy's experience and ideas on how to best market our home, we knew we had made a wise decision to choose her and Mike to be our agents...Cindy and Mike were, through it all, extremely patient, professional, positive and motivated about meeting our expectations -- selling our home to the right buyer, for the right price...One standout example of heir dedication was when they arrived at our home one Saturday in jeans and t-shirts and spent half a day re-landscaping our front flowerbeds to improve the 'curb appeal' of our house!"
-- Tom and Lisa Wright
"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 - United States Marines - In a letter to Kevin Breen, Broker, Coldwell Banker Elite
"Mike and Cindy Gillies did an excellent job explaining the market, presentation of property and generally kept us informed throughout the process. Coldwell Banker Elite and The Gillies Team was the best choice I could have made. Excellent Job."
-- Michael Gerace
"We can't thank you enough for pointing us toward Coldwell Banker and toward Cindy Gillies, her husband Mike and their son Michael. They have made our first home buying experience a true dream. Knowledgeable, professional, and an absolute pleasure to work with. This is the team you should be sending all your business to. It's no wonder Cindy Gillies is ranked as one of the top three Realtors in the state of Virginia...My wife and I would recommend Cindy and her family to anyone buying or selling a home, especially for first time buyers."
-- Eric Cline - United States Marines
"You all went far beyond your responsibilities to assist Nazir and me. Mike was especially helpful in being 'on site' to keep things moving at the very end. You guys are GREAT!!!...You all make a great team. Your caring and professionalism are unmatched in my dealings with real estate agents. If I have an occasion to get down your way, I would like to take a few minutes of your busy time to meet you in person and again say thanks for a job well done."
-- Hank May
"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."
