You brought me not only one but two offers within a week and expedited a quick close and smooth escrow. Thank you for making such an overwhelming process seem so easy.

We are very pleased with the way you are marketing our condo and what you have been doing to help us sell.
L. Rouch, Seller, Shorebirds (2011)
I listed my Shorebirds condo with Gail and she worked tirelessly until we found a buyer. I recently sold my condo. Gail's reputation is well earned. I am very happy that I had her representation as my Realtor.
Dr. T. Merigan, Shorebirds Seller (2010)
We sold our condo at Shorebirds and purchased another in the same development. Gail represented us on both the sale and the purchase. The transaction was complex in that both buyes and sellers were coordinating 1031 tax exchanges for our purchases. We only wanted one particular condo so we had to sell our condo rapidly in a tight sales market. The liklihood of our double transaction coming to fruition was slim. Gail managed to overcome all of the difficulties and worked diligently to make all of the transactions work out successfully. We believe that if we had not worked with Gail we would not have been able to complete our transaction. We can emphatatically state that we would work with Gail again in any R.E. transaction and recommend Gail highly to anyone looking for a hard working and diligent real estate agent.
S. & D. Alongi, Shorebirds Owners
"We are so pleased with you as our realtor. Your communication with us during our purchase transaction was excellent. You even had the vacant beach condo cleaned and carpets steam cleaned for us. You went beyond what we expected from a realtor. Thank you very much!"

"You sold my Shorebirds condo for me years ago and I never stopped missing this magical beach community. I contacted you this year and together, we found the perfect fractional ownership. I am a Shorebirds owner again with wonderful partners and enjoying the magic of beachfront home ownership."
