Client Testimonials

(Success stories from home sellers who chose Gary Rose to sell their homes.)

John & Mary Dittman

Bend, OR

Thank you for selling our home!  After you sold our neighbors home and they said such great things about you, we never gave it a second thought about calling you to sell our home.  Between the great photos taken by your wife Sondra and the detailed marketing program you created for our home, we were not surprised when it sold in less than a month.  You did a great job and we highly recommend you!

Dennis & Barbara Harris

La Pine, OR

Thank you Gary for selling our home!  We struggled to sell our home with another broker, but thanks to your great marketing and real estate knowledge, not only did you get the job done for us, but you kept us in the loop every step of the way.  You were right.  Finding a buyer is only the start.  Using your skills and experience to get the sale closed is where you really earn your commission.   We would highly recommend Gary to anyone thinking about selling their home.  


Doug & Shawn Dunlap

Redmond, OR

Gary, thanks so much for your diligence, integrity and novel approach to selling real estate.   Also thank you for being willing to try something different from the the norm.  After not selling our home with another agent, you not only worked hard to get our property sold, but also did an amazing job for us.   Doug and I are thoroughly enjoying our travelling life in retirement because of you!!!  We not only highly recommend you, but we are your "devoted" fans for life.

Bill & Camilla Emmons

Bend. OR

We have sold two homes in the past and felt that we had exceptional realtors both time.   But truly, neither could compare to the way you do business.  You were always available and I knew every time I called I could expect to reach you (or you would call back very quickly)  ... how do you do that?  We do very sincerely appreciate the time and effort you put into not only getting our riverfront home sold, but also arranging the various inspections and details that were required for closing.  You totally stayed on top of everything.  We were also pleased with your recommendation for the agents at Western Title & Escrow who were most gracious in responding to our inquiries.  You are an amazing professional.  You can be rest assured that we would refer you in a heartbeat to any friends or neighbors needing to sell a home.  With best wishes for continued success!

Bend, OR

We were very pleased with Gary and his professional approach in selling our Bend home.  Our house had been listed previously and we were unsuccessful in selling it.  Gary took a very different approach by highlighting all of our upgrades and the unique qualities in our home.  The pictures that he took were outstanding!  Gary located a buyer with a full price offer in 12 days.  He followed through with us in closing and kept in communication with us about further details even after the sell.  We highly recommend Gary Rose to you as a facilitator in selling your home.  You will not be disappointed.

Bud & Loretta McElfresh

Sunriver, OR

After trying to sell our home with 2 other real estate brokers over a 3 year period, we were strongly advised to call Gary Rose.  Gary said at the time of our listing that he was excited to have the opportunity to get the job done and he did.  He got it sold when others could not.   Every email, text or phone call was answered very quickly by Gary.  We also very much appreciated his network of contacts that assisted in the transaction, their quick response, and professionlism in getting the transaction complete.

We would highly recommend Gary and have already done so.


Lynn Hornbuckle

Sunriver, OR

Gary Rose helped me sell my condo in record time!  I thought it would take months, but it only took days to sell!  And, perhaps most importantly, it sold for more than the asking price!  I would highly recommend Gary Rose. His marketing and communication skills are terrific! Not only did he do a great job in selling my home and getting the escrow closed, but he always called me back promptly and showed up when he said he would.   I really appreciated that.


So if you are thinking about selling your home, Gary Rose is the person to call.  You will not be disappointed. 

Carmelo & Marlena Bellavia

Bend, OR

We had previously listed our home with another real estate agent for 8 months.  Our experience was, to put it mildly, quite disappointing.  In simple words, a few showings (in 8 months), perhaps 4 or 5 phones calls (always originated by us), no communications on strategy or anything else, for that matter.  One day, I received a pamphlet from Gary Rose, was impressed with what I read and decided to meet him in person.  After our meeting, I really liked what he had to say and we decided to give it a try.  What followed was simply amazing.  Discussions, phone calls, and communications followed at a rapid rate (more in just one week than in 8 months with the previous broker).  The first week he showed the house 11 times and had an offer on the table exactly one week to the day of signing on with him.  Obviously we were impressed, and of course, elated!  A few weeks later, our house was sold.  Gary kept us in the loop at every single step of the selling process, aggressive with everyone involved to keep the process moving.  


For me, two traits are crucial in any form of transaction: professionalism and ethics.  Gary has mastered these two traits at the highest level.  Every email, every phone call, and every text message was answered immediately with an answer or advice.  We felt part of the process to the minutest detail - we were working together as a team.  Thank you Gary!

Brian & Lisa Canady

When Gary Rose sold a neighbor’s custom-built log home down the street from ours, we contacted Gary about selling ours.  We found Gary to be an upfront, experienced real estate professional with an actionable sales plan and we decided to give list our home with him.


Given the green light, Gary quickly assembled a comprehensive information package on our home, put together a digital photo gallery and got the word out about the availability of our property.  Interest came quickly and we sold our home much sooner than we expected.


We were very particular about our home and how it was represented and we had a very positive experience working with Gary.  He gave solid advice, took note of our thoughts and concerns and moved quickly and efficiently throughout the entire process.  Gary remained easily accessible and kept a calm demeanor which made the process less stressful for us.

It has been our experience that there are many more real estate agents than there are professional real estate agents, and that having the latter is a key component to a successful real estate transaction. 


For anyone serious about selling their property we highly recommend they speak with Gary Rose about what he could bring to the table for them.


Rita Copp

Sunriver, OR

It is my pleasure to acknowledge the outstanding performance of Gary Rose in the sale of our family residence.  Gary was sensitive to our expectations, listened to our concerns, and guided us through the entire process with his experience, wisdom and humor. 
We had listed our home with another Real Estate company and agent and were disappointed with the treatment we received, so we were wary of signing on with another agent,  Gary was recommended by a friend whose house Gary had recently sold, and we were extremely satisfied with the first meeting.  Especially appreciated from this time to the final close of escrow was the fact that Gary kept us informed as to what was happening, both good and not so good news.  His honesty is probably the quality that we regard most highly, and which would lead us to recommend him at anytime to anyone.


Tom & Laura Poole

Redmond, OR

When we decided to sell our home and purchase a smaller home, we were referred to Gary Rose.   After we listed our home with Gary, he sold our home very quickly and it closed escrow right on schedule.  We would highly recommend Gary to anyone selling their home.

Mark & Corinne Neufeldt

Bend, OR

We recently sold our home through Gary Rose at Coldwell Banker Morris Real Estate.  Gary is one of the most knowledgeable and professional real estate agents we have had the pleasure to deal with.  


We had tried to sell our home with another broker, but our home did not sell and we were very disappointed.   They seemed be more concerned about earning a commission than looking out for us.


Gary is a hard worker, gives great customer service, and his MBA in marketing realll shows itself in his real estate work.  We would not hesitate to use Gary's services again, and would highly recommend him to anyone wishing to buy or sell real estate.

Jim & Marlene Beltram

Powell Butte, OR

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.   Thank you Gary!

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.  Then we closed escrow in 35 days - right on schedule! 


We had listed our home a year ago and were not pleased with the previous broker.  He was young and lacked experienced, but we were promised he was supported by a team.  It didn't happen.


When we met you Gary, we talked to you several times. You were very 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. 


Then after we listed our home with you, we were very impressed with your diligence and follow through.  Our experience with you was rewarding.  You stayed in touch with us almost daily and if we call,  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 already have referred you to others).   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.

Ed Cook

La Pine, OR

I've probably bought and sold a half dozen homes in my lifetime but selling my (late) father-in-law’s home that was within a trust was something new.  Given that my father-in-law had listed his house with Gary Rose of Coldwell Banker Morris Real Estate before he passed away, 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-law’s three daughters...that's an accomplishment right there!  


In spite of the fact we were selling at the start of winter, Gary showed us that homes sell year round in Central Oregon.  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 transaction did fall through he found another buyer very quickly.


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!

After another agent could not sell my home, I was very disappointed having received many false promises.   When I hired Gary to sell my home, he represented that he could sell my property -- true to his word, he followed up with every showing, kept me informed at every stage of the sale, and it closed escrow on time with an all cash offer two weeks after being listing for sale with Gary.  Thank you Gary!  You didn't just promise results, you delivered.

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.

Sabrina & Joseph Picotte

La Pine, OR

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!

Monique & Charlie Kunst

Bend, OR

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!
