(what past clients say about the job I did to sell their home)
After the frustration of not selling our home with another realtor, we want you to know how very much we appreciate all your efforts on our behalf to get our home sold. We think you went above and beyond what most realtors would have done to help us. If you are listing another home and the homeowner has any doubt about you, we would be happy to give you a verbal reference. Just have them call us.
-- Jim & Marlene Beltram
I wanted to let you know how very pleased we were with you with the sale of our home. We couldn’t believe that we listed it on a Friday and got a full offer in just a few days and closed escrow thirty plus day’s later-right on schedule! We had listed our home a year ago and were not pleased with the realtor. We talked to you several times and were very impressed with your diligence and follow through. When we met with you,you were professional and explained to us the process you use to prepare documentation about our home and how the information would be available to other realtors and potential buyers. I think that is the main reason we selected you as our realtor because you were so professional and prepared.
Our experience with you was rewarding. You stayed in touch with us almost daily; if we called, you returned the call within the hour or less. The communication was, again, very professional and informative. We never lacked for input or worried about the status at any time. The advice you provided us was invaluable.
We would definitely recommend you to anyone (and have). Thank you for a great experience Gary and our best to you. We are off on our travels to Alaska worry free – thanks to you. Sharon, Cal and Max the dog.
I've probably bought and sold a half dozen homes in my lifetime but selling my (late) father-in-laws home that was within a trust was something new. Given that my father-in-law had listed his house with Gary Rose of Central Oregon Home Seller, I felt there was no reason to change brokers particularly after meeting with him. Gary was extremely professional and sensitive considering the circumstances and was very adept at responding to queries from me as well as my father-in-laws three daughters...that's an accomplishment right there! We weren't selling the house at the optimal time, about 2 months before the onset of winter, but weren't in a position where we had to sell the house either. Gary helped strategize the sale, he was very proactive in informing us what was occurring...I'm 6 hours away by the way...but the distance was a non-issue. He had my (the trust's) best interests at heart, he was smart enough to realize that our first buyer was flakey (my word not Gary's) and when the deal did fall through he literally had another offer in his back pocket.
So based on my experiences - if you want an intelligent broker, a great communicator...someone who initiates the discussion as well as promptly responding to any questions you might have...and someone who will look out for your best interests, give Gary a call. And lastly, I asked Gary if I could write him a letter of recommendation. And those half dozen homes that I've previously bought and sold - none of those realtors or brokers demonstrated the tact, the communication expertise, nor the skills and knowledge that Gary did. Nada, zip, none! -- Ed Cook
After another agent could not sell my home, Gary represented that he could sell my property -- true to his word, it closed escrow on time with an all cash offer two weeks after being listing for sale with Gary -- Jon Oksenholt
This letter is to serve as a strong recommendation to consider Gary Rose to represent you in your real estate transaction. Gary was our listing and selling agent to help us find a buyer for our home this past summer. Our home was for sale the previous summer with another agent, but we did not get a single offer. Gary did an outstanding job of marketing our home to obtain maximum exposure and interest from prospective buyers. Gary spent many hours with us to analyze and discuss the strengths of our home to ensure the best features were highlighted in all advertising materials. Gary produced an excellent virtual tour of our home for on-line viewing which generated a lot of interest in our home. Gary’s advice on the pricing and staging of our home helped us to find a buyer much more quickly than we anticipated. Gary did a good job of staying in communication with us and keeping us informed on the progress with all prospective buyers. We were very satisfied with Gary’s support and service and would highly recommend him to anyone selling or buying a home.

We had our home on the market for over a year with few showings of interest so we took it off the market for awhile. We were receiving flyers in the mail from Gary Rose offering to sell our home. We met with him and after he gave us his 25 point marketing plan, we decided to put our home back on the market with Gary Rose as our realtor. One important item on his 25 point plan was his promise of keeping in close contact with us by phone and email regarding the status/progress of our listing. Gary’s advice and knowledge was of great help to us in selling our home. Gary represented our home/us well and managed the entire process from listing to selling to closing the escrow. We appreciate Gary’s professionalism in looking out for our interests and in selling our home. We recommend Gary for the sale of your home -- you won’t be disappointed. -- Sabrina & Joseph Picotte
After our home was on the market for almost a year with another agent and did not sell, we called Gary. From the beginning, Gary worked very hard to learn about the features of our home and created some great ways to promote our home. His approach was very different from our previous agent, but it just made sense to us. Sure enough, after 35 days, Gary found a buyer and our home closed escrow in 30 days. We were very impressed that Gary did not only work to get a buyer for our home, but kept us informed the entire time. He really knows what he is doing. We cannot recommend Gary enough as a listing agent. Thank you again Gary! -- Monique & Charlie Kunst
I cannot recommend Gary highly enough as a Realtor®. In addition to being very savvy about the regional market, he is a dogged and resourceful in dealing with service vendors, financial institutions, escrow companies, fickle buyers and their agents. And since I was always kept in the loop and consulted on important decisions, I felt it was a genuine collaboration. I'm very glad I sought his help with this challenge. -- Jerry Kellogg
Gary was very sensitive to our feelings regarding the sale of our mother's house. Since we live in Arizona we relied on Gary to meet inspectors, provide capable repair people, and follow up on all work completed. While it was hard to say goodbye to such a wonderful neighborhood the process itself was made less difficult by Gary’s skill and professionalism.
I know in the future there would be no other Realtor I would use. -- Alexandrea Kinker
Gary did an excellent job of helping me to sell my house so I could make my move to Ashland. He was extremely responsive and available; always easy to get in touch with and would always return calls within a short time. Gary did a wonderful job of communicating and explaining things patiently, thoroughly, and in a way that made sense. He was always very pleasant and helpful with me. We had a difficult first buyer, and because of Gary's knowledge and experience, he was able to resolve the conflict in an expedient and professional manner. He is an expert in contracts and he was very helpful in looking out for my interests. I would definitely recommend Gary to anyone who is looking to sell a house.
-- June Kim
Gary, thank you, thank you, thank you.....a million times. I thought it would be a nightmare trying to sell my home, but you took care of that--it was a dream. You helped in every way possible, sold my house in a reasonable time frame, and professionally remained very neutral, calm, and communicative all the way through the entire process. I will shout it from the roof tops, Gary Rose is the best!!! I would recommend you to anyone and everyone. -- Pam Lewko

Many thanks for all your help with the sale of my 2nd home. Living in France I was worried about coordinating the sale from overseas, but you took care of everything. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others wishing to sell their property. Your professional approach and hard work ensured that the house was fully exposed to potential purchasers in these difficult times. Once the sale was agreed your timely assistance with the administrative and other issues which arose was greatly appreciated. -- Mike Peasley
Just a quick note to express my gratitude to you during these last couple of months. This has been a difficult time for me since my husband passed away, and you were very helpful in making the sale of my home that much easier. I very much appreciated your honesty and integrity. You are kind, patient, very thoughtful and were great at returning my many phone calls. I would wholeheartedly recommend you to others who are selling their home. Thank you again for everything. -- Dora Eilers
Our decision to select Gary Rose to sell our home was the best decision we could have made. It closed escrow on time without any snags. What a treat! He is very knowledgeable in the field of real estate, and always looked out for our best interests. Communication was great. We have bought and sold several homes over the years and, without question, Gary is the very best realtor we have had the privilege to work with. We highly recommend him to anyone in need of a realtor when selling a home! -- Jeff and Joyce Snyder
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for a job well done in selling my home. Not only did you find a buyer for home, but I felt like you protected my interests along the way. Your local knowledge and transaction management skills were very helpful and you followed up with me on a regular basis to keep me informed. All in all, it was a great real
estate experience and I would highly recommend you to others selling real estate. -- Carol Dickey
“We had interviewed several agents and decided to use Gary Rose. He presented a written 25 point selling plan and followed it weekly. He followed up with visits and phone calls and kept us informed along the way. Then when we got an offer, Gary was very skillful in negotiating the best deal for us. Then he worked hard to make sure the escrow closed.
We sold our home and very happy with the job Gary did for us. Gary is incredible! -- Sharon and John Crymes
