We will never forget the afternoon that Gerri called with word of a brand-new listing. It was around 2 pm on a Friday. "This just listed two hours ago," she said. "No one has seen it yet. I think it might be what you've been looking for." Within minutes she had emailed photos and specs of the house. It looked very promising. Gerri got us a showing that very day. By 5 pm we were in the house. The location, the style, the room to grow - it was better than we could have hoped. By 6 pm we'd put in an offer. And by the following Saturday afternoon, thanks to Gerri's extra efforts, we had a ratified contract.
We know from experience that finding a home in this competitive market takes every edge you can get. First and foremost, you've got to work with a realtor who can offer something extra. Patience, a positive attitude, experience and smarts - those are good for starters. But we wanted more. We wanted a realtor who would regularly keep in touch by phone and email. We wanted someone who was a firm and accomplished negotiator. Above all else, we wanted a realtor who had the drive and motivation to make our search a top priority. We found all that in Gerri. And thanks to her, we found our new home as well.

We were transferred to Virginia from Texas a little over two years ago. In seeking an agent to show us around, I found Roy Wheeler and Assoc. web-page. I met Gerri Russell upon my arrival and she had everything I had asked for and a plan of attack all lined out. She devoted all of her time and efforts to us in locating exactly what we wanted. Through previous discussions she knew what we were looking for and between what we had located on the internet and through her local knowledge, it was all mapped out. Needless to say, we signed a contract after a week of looking! We still stay in touch today and enjoy a friendly rapport. We would highly recommend Gerri for her professionalism and knowledge.

We thought our opportunity to buy property in rural Albemarle County had passed, but Gerri helped us make our dream come true!

After my first conversation with Gerri I felt she had a good sense of what I was looking for as I searched for a house. She showed me a variety of houses, worked around my work schedule, and helped me better understand the buying and selling process. Gerri helped make my move to the area much easier than I had anticipated. With Gerri's help, I found a great house that perfectly suits my needs.

Shopping for a house from eleven hundred miles away can be a daunting task but Gerri was great. She knew Charlottesville and the surrounding areas very well and knew a lot about houses from just knowing the neighborhood. She knew which houses were close to major roads or too far from town, didnít have large enough yards for our dog, etc. without us having to go out to each one ourselves. She worked hard and spent a lot of time with us to find us the right house. We would definitely use her again!
