Gavin is very honest, knowledgeable, responsive, & helpful.

He helped us sell our vacant lot (for a lot more than we ever dreamed) within a couple days of listing it. He made the listing process as smooth as possible as well as closing.

Being first time home buyers we really appreciated how Gavin made the process smooth and enjoyable.

He was always honest when looking at homes, pointing out possible pros and cons that we may have missed. We would recommend Gavin to everyone. - Chhalrachhorn and Victoria
