“She ably and patiently handled my real estate affairs while I was looking for a new home after returning to Laguna Beach.  Gilda took the time to research and look into finding exactly the type of property I was looking for.  She was also able to keep procedures of obtaining a loan, insurance, and inspection in order and completed in a timely manner.  She worked well with the seller and their real estate agent to finalize an arrangement both parties could agree with.  …I would gladly recommend her services…I have referred her services to my brother.”

“I was immediately impressed with her professionalism.  Gilda carefully listened to our needs as well as our wants as we waited for the right opportunity.  The purchase and related escrow were stress-free as Gilda guided us through the process and we closed on time.   Having completed such an easy purchase escrow, we naturally picked Gilda to help sell our existing home.  Gilda understood the emotional detachment that occurs when selling a home.  Thankfully, this process was extremely quick as we sold our home the first day it was on the market.  Gilda guided us through this process in her usual kind, but very professional demeanor.  Thank you Gilda for making both our purchasing and selling process such an enjoyable experience.  It was a pleasure working with you!”

“She has successfully brokered three deals for me.  She has consistently negotiated very favorable pricing for me, and has closed each transaction quickly and efficiently.  More importantly, Gilda provides superb customer service.  She continually keeps me abreast of the market, and provides me with excellent advice on my current properties to maximize their value.  I can wholeheartedly recommend Gilda to anyone looking for a residential or commercial broker for the south Orange County area.  She truly is a pleasure to work with.”
