Charlottesville and Surrounding Areas
I came to Charlottesville for a different lifestyle – what I discovered was a whole new way of living! I remember my first introduction to Charlottesville… hiking the trails of the Blue Ridge Mountains and motor biking through the byways of rural Virginia. The peace and tranquility of the region combined with an active cultural and social lifestyle made it the best of all possible worlds. I came for a visit and it became my home. I came for a different lifestyle and what I found was a whole new way of living. That was over twenty years ago.

Home remodeling is considered a great American pastime. In fact, approximately 58% of the American population poured money into home improvement projects last year.
And who can blame them? The benefits that come with doing home remodeling are endless. Besides its ability to make living conditions more favorable, a renovation can also fix safety issues and increase the efficiency of a house. Best of all, it also enabled them to increase the value of their homes and make it easier to sell.

Responsive During the Whole Process
“Gerri was very responsive during the whole process and was able to re-assure us during the closing process. We strongly recommend her to friends.”
“Gerri was more than excellent – her steadfast service, willing attitude, level headed advice, and perseverance made her outstanding! We so appreciated her sticking with us as our needs changed and our needs evolved. She helped us work through what was important to use and we found a house we love!”
Took the Time to Help Us
“Gerri was very patient and understanding as we searched for our new home. She is knowledgeable about the area and took the time to help us find the right place.”
A Realtor with Something Extra
“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.”
Really Knew the Area
“First of all, Gerri is the bravest Realtor ever. She took me out in a blizzard because I am from out of town and we went everywhere! I love her personality and she really knows the area. I felt immediately comfortable with her and will surely use her as I make my move to Charlottesville! PS she is an excellent driver-I am a terrified passenger and was not nervous at all even in terrible conditions.”
Responsive to All Our Concerns
“Gerri is fantastic! She listens well and gives solid advice. She was responsive to all our concerns and took an active role with both the house sale and the purchase.”
Got the Deal Done
“Gerri was extremely helpful in every step of the process of buying our place. She met with the various inspectors in those cases when I couldn’t be present. She ran interference with the sellers, who could be really difficult at times. She stuck with us for the nearly 9 months it took to get the deal done. We enjoyed working with her.”
Always By Our Side
“My wife and I didn’t know where to begin when selling our first home in 2017, and after meeting Gerri knew we had someone who could not only help us, but who understood the market extremely well. Always by our side, we never had to question that Gerri was working with us and no one else. Trust is hard to find in business, but we could trust Gerri from the outset. We loved our experience with Gerri so much, we asked her a favor…help us find another home in a totally different market! The experience was more than we could have hoped for. We’re so thrilled to have found a friend in Gerri in the process – she truly took the time to know our needs, lead us in the right direction and have our back. We NEVER had to question her recommendations or concerns throughout the process. If ever we have a need in the future, or know someone who does, for a true realtor – Gerri’s the gem we’ll recommend every single time!!”
