As a first-time home buyer, I was very nervous to begin navigating the home buying process. After speaking with a couple realtors who did not seem to take me seriously, Gina immediately calmed my nerves. She is extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and was always available to answer my questions, no matter how small. Throughout the home buying process, Gina was extremely helpful when providing referrals for all the services I needed: Loan Officer, Home Inspector, Roof Inspector, and Pest Inspector. She let me know if any of her referrals were known for anything in particular and always let me make the ultimate decision of which company to go with. From the initial showing of the home, to the drafting of the offer, Gina did a tremendous job at representing my own interests. Because I was purchasing an older home, and because the seller had already made several generous offers to me, Gina thoughtfully helped me draft a realistic but aggressive request for repairs on the home which was ultimately agreed to. While there were a few hiccups along the home buying process, Gina always came through. She was present at all major stages of the process, and after receiving my keys she walked me through all of the agencies I would need to contact to have all home utilities placed in my name. Even after closing and moving in, she has continued to provide me with helpful information such as handymen referrals, information regarding my home warranty, and local weatherization programs. It was such a pleasure to work with Gina, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Sacramento area.
