She earns an A+ from me...

Grace has the qualities that make her an excellent real estate agent. Her warm, friendly personality invites you to immediately like her and know she will work hard for you. Grace kept me up to date, well-informed and guided me so efficiently during the sale of the property process. I can truly say she worked above and beyond all my expectations. As a result, the property sold in a short time for a very fair price. From my perspective, a difficult process turned out to run very smoothly due to Grace's expertise. Her energy and commitment to do the very best job possible for her clients is an exceptional work ethic to have, and she does it so well. She earns an A+ from me.

Grace was the best!

I have purchased five homes as I have moved about the country, and even with positive realtor experiences in the past, Grace was the best. She is personable and always available, and was superior to past realtors in her review of all documentation and making sure all of the details were understood fully. Her efforts at personalizing our transaction led to us being chosen by the seller, even though another party had a higher offer.

Don't miss out working with the best!

It is my honor to recommend and thank Grace Garland for the recent sale of my home in Oak Canyon, San Jose. In addition to her professional skill in promoting the home, hosting open houses and working with buyers & agents throughout the process, she went far beyond the call of duty in coordinating inspections, home repairs, home staging and all the other assistance she provided to me throughout. Grace is by far the most skilled Real Estate agent that I have ever partnered with! Don't miss out working with the best!

I trust you implicitly...

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all you have done for me as my real estate agent. You have always been available to show properties, answer my multiple questions and guide me in this entire home buying process. Even more than that you were always there to support me whenever I was discouraged and felt as if I would never find the "right fit". More importantly, however, I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your ethical sense. I think that is the most important quality in an agent and I trust you implicitly. I couldn't have done this without you.

At our initial meeting, it was obvious that Grace is a professional...

Grace Garland made the process of selling our house in San Jose almost effortless. At our initial meeting, it was obvious that Grace is a professional with a thorough understanding of the business and the housing market. She diligently researched the optimal price and timing to put our house on the market, helped us show it to its best advantage, and set up and monitored all inspections. The sale of the house proceeded exactly as Grace predicted, with multiple offers within one week! When a few minor problems arose during closing, she provided immediate solutions and followed through on any remaining issues. Grace responded promptly to all calls, texts, and emails, with a positive attitude and good humor. She is very personable and reliable and treats you like a good friend from start to finish. Working with Grace Garland was a very enjoyable experience, and I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone buying or selling a home.

I strongly recommend Grace...

We have been looking for a long time for an investment property and worked without success with a few agents. Then one day, we met Grace... She has been outstanding and supported us above and beyond in our search and after a few weeks, we were finally able to close on a nice property. Grace went over and beyond our previous agents, she made everything possible to ensure we will be satisfied with our purchase. She was very dynamic in all compartments from understanding our needs to visiting the properties and including help on all collateral needs we had for contractor search, closing the paper, etc. We had a wonderful experience and her service is way above what you will find with any other agent. I strongly recommend Grace.

We can't say enough about how pleased we were with Grace...

My wife and I were referred to Grace by a friend in our neighborhood who had used her to sell their home. We found Grace to be an excellent realtor and could not be happier. She stepped my wife and me through the selling process covering what was required, helped us to understand the current market values and conditions. Grace then guided us thru the steps of prepping the house, paperwork and getting all the inspections done in advance. In the end, we sold our house faster than we thought, and at the value, we believed our home was worth. There were some stressful moments in the selling of our home as it is both a financial and emotional transaction and she worked with us to help us thru this in a very personable and professional manner. She even went the extra mile to help with the moving process. We can't say enough about how pleased we were with Grace.

She thought of things we wouldn’t have thought of...

Working with Grace couldn’t have gone any better from the very beginnings of our exploring the idea of moving from our home of 25 years to completing the purchase and sale of our new/old home. She was ready when we were ready and couldn’t have been more helpful throughout the process. She thought of things we wouldn’t have thought of and always seemed to be one step ahead of us. Her advice all along the way helped us through both transactions without a hiccup. They say moving is one of the most stressful things you can do in life. Grace removed a lot of the stress and, quite frankly, made it fun! She will be a friend for life!

She is an expert in guiding the seller...

Grace has excellent people skills and exhibits a deep understanding of the complex emotional as well as the practical issues of selling a home in this difficult market. Selling a home is much more than a financial transaction and she is an expert in guiding the seller through this process.

She has a keen eye for details...

I have found Grace to be both extremely professional and very personable. She guided my wife and I from our initial inquiries through to closing a linked sale and buy. Details covered market values, advice on preparing our house for sale, touring new potential neighborhoods, buy and sell negotiation, open house support. She worked extremely well with other agents, finance, and escrow while making a point of keeping my wife and I fully informed of both good progress and minor setbacks. She has a wealth of associated contacts including contractors, inspectors and moving companies - all of which provided excellent service and value. She has a keen eye for details and kept both of the other agents on their toes to avoid unnecessary impact to us. From seeing our dream house to selling the old one and moving took less than 6 weeks. I have no hesitation in strongly recommending Grace as your agent!

I will definitely be using her in the future...

From the very first interaction with Grace, I knew that she was someone who would be easy to work with and she would be able to help me get through the sale of my home under very difficult and stressful circumstances. Grace is like a breath of fresh air. She was open and flexible and listened to my worries and helped me come up with a workable plan to pack up my home and prepare it for sale. She was even able to get me a steady supply of packing boxes and she has an address book full of trusted contractors and moving specialists to call on when the need arises. Because of Grace's expertise in the processes involved in marketing my home and navigating the paperwork, the whole process was quick and easy. I can't thank her enough. I will definitely be using her in the future and would wholeheartedly recommend Grace and the Sereno Group if you are looking for a Realtor.

She truly went over and above our expectations...

Grace is an outstanding real estate professional. Not only is she friendly and helpful but she really gives her all! She truly went over and above our expectations while helping us sell our house, even helping take 30 years worth of hazardous waste to the county disposal facility on a Saturday. Thank you Grace! It was definitely a pleasure.
