I was looking for a realtor for my first investment property, and I I went to Better Realty off of a recommendation from a friend. They were super polite and knowledgeable! I worked with Gabe, who was very engaged, and did a great job of teaching me things, helping me make important decisions, and bridging the gaps for me as a virtual landlord. I definitely plan to work with Better Realty in the future!

I had a great experience as a first time home buyer working with Gabe! He explained everything in ways that were easy to understand and helped us through this stressful process of finding a home in this difficult market. He was very patient with us as we searched for our perfect home that met all of our needs and he took lots of time to show us many different homes in different areas of town. Gabe helped us to find our first dream home and we could not be happier! I would definitely recommend working with Gabe!
