Gretchen and I met over 1.5 years ago. We looked at homes and she was always available to meet me; checked out all options. She always responds quickly-in fact we did a lot of the sale via text! Can’t say enough about this woman. She changed my life for the better forever! Thank you!!!
Suzie L. – Cameron Park, CA (2017)
Gretchen made buying my house easy. I was able to ask any question I needed. She helped push my escrow through and we closed in 14 days with a VA loan. She is awesome.
Katie P. – Sacramento, CA (2017)
Your help was beyond words. You were so fast and made the buying process feel like a walk through the park. You helped us get our dream home in such a quick time. Words cannot explain how grateful we are for all your help. Great communication and overall made our first home buying experience feel so smooth.
Monsse & Julio V. – Bakersfield, CA (2017)
Gretchen’s knowledge, professionalism and caring attitude made the stressful process of selling our house, smooth sailing! Thank you Gretchen for taking care of us in such a personal and caring manner. You are the best!
Yassy & David W. – Sacramento, CA & Corona, CA (2016)
Gretchen was very familiar with all the areas we were looking at. She gave great feedback and insight into areas we searched. I trusted her and she made the home searching process a wonderful experience and I will definitely use her in the future.
Kendra T. –Mather, CA (2016)
It was the same stellar service we received 3 years ago in the purchase of our first house. We received the utmost care and attention from Gretchen. Although it was a difficult market to work with all summer 2016, I feel Gretchen gave us the best opportunities and the quickest insights on every property of interest on our MLS. She saved us time, kept us informed about all kinds of scenarios and gave us so much confidence and security in our search for a forever home. I cannot imagine trusting anyone else with the purchase or sale of our home.
Mat & Natalia S. – Sacramento, CA (2016)
Gretchen was fantastic. She was on top of everything every step of the way; even anticipating things before they happened. She always remained calm, cool and collected; even when things go a little crazy. I would recommend Gretchen any day!
Becky & Joe H. –Folsom & Orangevale, CA (2016)
We stopped by our new house last night and want to thank you for the TOTALLY AWESOME and thoughtful goodie basket filled with fun pool stuff! We had NADA, no beach towels - No nothing. Until now, that is :-) I think my favorite are the floating flamingo drink holders -- LOL Love them!
Just so you know, there are 4 things about you (I know there are many more, but these are the 4 that immediately come to mind) that I hope you never change, because they make you stand out:
1. How ON TOP of things you are. You keep everyone on track and within time constraints, schedule inspections, etc. without ever having to be reminded. You do in automatically. We needed do NOTHING!
2. How RESPONSIVE you are. Whenever we send an email, it was replied to almost immediately! Even late at night. And there were MANY emails among us. You were never short, and explained everything in detail. WOW. 3. You are your CLIENT'S ADVOCATE. I always got the impression that you were ready to fight for us - for what whatever it was we wanted, or for what you felt we were entitled to by law or contract. I never felt you were trying to change our minds or smooth things over for the sake of trying to push the sale through.
4. How GENEROUS you are. You paid for all inspections AND worked closely with Charlie without being asked - and ended up giving a large amount of your commission to close our deal! WHO DOES THAT???
The EXTRAS didn't go unnoticed. The initial buyers goodie bag, the BIG goodie basket (obviously not generic, but filled with customized goodies that you knew we would need and appreciate :-), and the free combo key vault (now being used by Jorge and crew)... Just icing on an already amazing cake.
I just wanted you to know that I SEE you and wanted to thank you again -- You're the best! Whenever an opportunity arises, I will be referring both you and Charlie as the "A-Team" when it comes to home purchase (or sale)
Linda G.& Jim C. –Rocklin, CA (2016)
Once again, you made it happen. We wanted a bigger home after buying our first home less than 2 years ago. We didn’t think it was possible but you did it. Thank you so much!
Wella & Melvin G.– Carson, CA (2016)
Words cannot express how grateful we are. Kevin and I have both purchased many homes but never had a more knowledgeable realtor. Thank you for all your patience with us. We will recommend you a million time over.
Tammy D. & Kevin G. –Auburn, CA (2016)
We have had many real estate agents throughout the years. NO ONE has come close to the level in EVERY ASPECT to Gretchen!! We will recommend her in a heartbeat. She was always one step ahead during the process. Warning: You will compare every agent to her, past and present.
Nate & Nicole B. – Roseville, CA (2016)
Gretchen was the best. She was there every step of the way. She really did her homework. She knew the homes that we saw inside and out. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Always on time, and very professional! A+
Ron L.. – Antelope, CA (2016)
As a first-time buyer, I was very nervous about buying my home. Gretchen’s knowledge, patience and professionalism made the experience easy and informative. I will definitely refer anybody I know.
Andrew Z. – Sacramento, CA (2016)
Gretchen was a NO PRESSURE agent which I really liked. She had worked all sides of the real estate market so she was very knowledgeable. She had in depth and thorough answers to all my questions. Everybody I know that is thinking of purchasing a house, I point them in her direction.
Seth D. – Antelope, CA (2016)
Everything was excellent. I cannot thank you enough for all the help; even before we were your clients. Working with you and your team was a huge blessing and like a breath of fresh air. What a great relief it was to have a professional, kind and caring team. After many awful experiences working, and even being in escrow, with other agents (that ended up disastrously), being in the hands of the GB4H program was a miracle. Also thank you for helping/supporting the hard working 1st responders. It means the world to us.
Ally & Michael H. – Copperopolis, CA (2015)
We would highly recommend Gretchen to all of our friends and family. She always got back to us very promptly and was so kind, patient and answered ALL our questions. Thank you so much Gretchen!
Kip & Molly S. – Rocklin, CA (2015)
Working with Gretchen has been wonderful! Gretchen made buying a home an amazing experience. She is so friendly, on top of everything and really made buying a home for the first time, a fun adventure. We were afraid because we didn't know anything about buying a home. Gretchen explained everything and answered all our questions. Would HIGHLY recommend Gretchen and GB4H!
Shaun & Christina O. – Sacramento, CA (2015)
Thank you Gretchen! We had such a wonderful and hassle-free experience working with Gretchen. She was completely on top of things, knew what our needs were and went above and beyond for us. We truly appreciate all of her hard work in finding us our dream home and will continue recommending her to everyone we know.
Monica & Clayton N. – Roseville, CA (2015)
My father was in real estate for 48 years before passing; Gretchen Bradley was the best realtor I have worked with since my dad. She listened to our wants/needs and showed us appropriate properties. Very professional and we always felt like we were her only clients. I would, and have, recommended GB4H to everyone I know.
Valerie P. and Thelma B. –Roseville, CA (2015)
This was our second home sell and third purchase. Gretchen by far, was the best! She listened to our needs and recommended we wait to list our house until the timing was perfect. We sold the home in 2 days. Better yet, we received over asking price on old home and under asking on new. Gretchen is absolutely the best!
Steve & Liz H. –Sacramento & Rancho Cordova, CA (2015)
Gretchen is an outstanding realtor. She went above and beyond for us. She stayed with us and carried us thru our entire home buying process until the very end. She treats her clients like her family. I trust her 200%. She is our new dream-catcher.
Daryl and Liza L. – Elk Grove, CA (2015)
Gretchen is an extremely knowledgeable and patient agent and helped us navigate this crazy Roseville/Rocklin real estate market with our best interest in mind. She was like our personal advisor and went out of her way to research homes that would fit our criteria/budget. Gretchen was very professional and I highly recommend entrusting her with the biggest financial decision of your life. Thank you Gretchen!
Jose A. – Rocklin, CA (2015)
Our experience with GB4H was an amazing one. We worked with 3 other realtors before finding Gretchen with GB4H and our other experiences all pale in comparison. Not only was our home buying experience fun and stress-free, but we ended up receiving $2,000 back! We felt like we should have been paying money for such a great experience and instead, we got money back! This really helped make our move so much more manageable.
Matt & Jenny A. – Carmichael, CA (2015)
I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done with respect to helping Marty and I buy our dreamhome. You really went above and beyond our expectations. You understood, better than anyone and respected our hectic schedules. You took time out of your own private life to accommodate us. You were prompt, professional, extremely organized, charismatic and kind. We really feel that you listened to us and knew exactly what we were looking for.
Marty and I know that we threw you for a loop when we decided to switch gears and change our search location. When we wanted to look in a city that was not within your area of expertise, you did not hesitate to get us in contact with an agent who did cover that area. Bob, Gretchen's partner agent, is every bit as competent as you are. We just couldn’t ask for a nicer, more genuine guy! Bob called me late on a Sunday night when he should have been enjoying his own family and talked to me for a long time, just as you did initially. And he immediately got to work setting up appointments for us with less than 48 hour’s notice.
Marty and I were so impressed with how laid back both of you were throughout the entire process. You never pushed us to make a decision we weren’t comfortable with. Trust me, no one wants to make the biggest financial decision in their life and feel like they are being guided by a used car salesman. You and Bob were nothing of the sort. There was no pressure to make the sale. If we didn’t like a house, we simply moved on. No questions asked. If you told us that you would do something, it was done exactly when you told us it would be done. You were both honest and fair. We really feel that you held our hands through the entire process.
You let us know what to expect and when to expect it and how to handle certain situations. You provided us with a plethora of information that helped to educate us in the buying and selling process. When things got tense in the buying negotiations, you and Bob were so cool, calm and collected. We took comfort in your experience and knew that you’d help us through it. We really felt that you had our best interest at heart. We always felt as though we were your only clients even though we knew how busy you both were. You each gave back to us and trust me, that means the world to us that you value your clients the way you do.
I would highly recommend each of you in the furture.
Marty & Trisha H. – Oakdale, CA (2015)
After several years of marriage where my husband handled all of the finances including home purchases, I was very lucky to have Gretchen by my side with my first house purchase. She walked me through every step and had my best interest at heart throughout the process. Gretchen is organized, driven, smart and a great listener to what a buyers needs are. I give Gretchen my highest possible recommendation.
Kelly C. – Roseville, CA (2014)
Gretchen exceeded our expectations! She is very professional and understanding. She prepared us very well and laid out a well thought out plan. The selling of our home went better than expected. Gretchen was always available for us and was very mindful of our best interest.
Not only did our agent, Gretchen Bradley, make the buying/selling process smooth and easy for us; she also went to bat! Just as our purchase seemed unreasonable, Gretchen’s ideas and recommendations really prepared us and made it happen! Thank you Gretchen-not only our agent, but now a family friend.
Rod & Sabrina R. –Elk Grove, CA (2014)
Giving Back 4 Homes connected us with the best realtor we could ask for. The entire buying experience was professional and pleasurable. We would not hesitate to refer others. Thanks so much!
Shawn & Jennifer B. – Cobb, CA (2014)
Gretchen was awesome throughout the entire process. Outstanding communication and her professionalism was like no other. I will definitely return to her for future real estate needs.
This program was amazing and truly appreciated. I was happily surprised to learn we qualified for over $7,000 from Gretchen and the Giving Back 4 Homes Program.
Mike C. – Rocklin, CA (2014)
Gretchen and Charles from PrimeLending were able to get my loan approval. My initial loan was denied near closing and the second loan attempt I experienced problems with the VA approving my loan. By this time I was discouraged and ready to give up. Gretchen fought to the end and was able to make miracles happen. Thank you Gretchen for all your hard work.
Silvia S. – Woodland, CA (2014)
Thank you Gretchen for all your help. Your professionalism is appreciated greatly by us. You are a testament to your profession.
Eric & Danielle M. – Bakersfield, CA (2014)
Gretchen is amazing. We feel truly blessed to have found her. She gave us our dream; what every military family wants "A place to call home". Thank you Gretchen and GB4H.
Reginald & Cierra E. – Reno, NV (2014)
Gretchen was very driven and methodical in her planning and execution in selling my home. She was a real professional throughout the process. Communicated very well through each step. Also, she went the extra mile with open house showings. I was impressed beyond belief as Gretchen's work ethic is something to be admired.
Kelly C. – Rocklin, CA (2014)
Gretchen was very professional. She stayed on top of all phases of process. Highly satisfied with all aspects of GB4H experience.
Ron & Judy B. – Citrus Heights, CA (2014)
We would like to thank Gretchen and everyone that participated. They made it happen! We bought a house! We were skeptical at first knowing that we've never met previously, but they are trustworthy and helpful. They made sure we were well taken care of during the most stressful process.
Melvin & Wella G. – Carson, CA (2014)
Gretchen is very professional; providing my wife and me numerous updates and information to ease the process of purchasing our first home. Gretchen went out-of-her-way to immediately complete documents that needed each party’s signatures. Very knowledgeable in real estate and constantly ensures her clients needs are met. Highly recommend.
Jason & Olivia T. – Roseville, CA (2013)
Gretchen and Melanie were amazing. We could not have had a better experience. Highly satisfied with all aspects of our Giving Back 4 Homes experience.
Abby & Gordon S. – Dixon, CA (2013)
Just the other day I sent my son a “thank you” text for getting the ball rolling to make a move here. I also want to thank you for taking his email and directing him as to what to do, e.g. the “wish list” and for finding a Giving Back 4 Homes Realtor for us. I kept saying we needed to wait because I didn’t know which area we wanted, didn’t have an agent, wasn’t sure if we had enough money, etc., etc. Our son, took the initiative and contacted you. I’m so glad he did! I think we got in here just in time. If we had waited much longer we would be saying, “should have, would have, could have”. So, I am very grateful to you and our son for getting us going in the right direction.
Rick & Melanie M. – Aptos, CA (2013)
GB4H is a great company providing quality service. Our experience overall was highly satisfying. Our coordinator/agent helped us through a very stressful experience with a developer who was very pushy and not putting our needs as a priority. GB4H had professional, friendly and extremely knowledgeable staff that was available 24/7. We are thankful for their service and throughtfulness. We would highly recommend. Thank you Gretchen, for all your hard work, friendship, knowledge, professionalism and quickness in returning our calls.
Travis & Lacey Y. –Oakley, CA (2013)
Gretchen Bradley is amazing! I had no clue concerning the home buying process. As a first time home buyer I couldn’t have asked for a better realtor!! Gretchen’s knowledge of the entire process coupled with her understanding of the buyer’s (me) thought process to include concerns and changes was (is) exceptional! As a retired Army Officer, her professionalism was and is an attribute that I would consider comparable to the top 1% of all Army soldiers that I have worked with. It was truly a refreshing home buying experience and that was only possible because of Gretchen.
Robert D. – Orangevale, CA (2013)
GB4H made it possible for us to purchase a home when we thought it was not even an option for us. Our realtor, Gretchen, guided us every step of the way. We are so grateful!
Jeremy & Alisha B. – Lincoln, CA (2013)
Gretchen treated us like family and took great care of us. Her knowledge and experience as a realtor was invaluable throughout our buying experience. As a first time homebuyer, I did not know what to expect or what to do. I was very blessed to have Gretchen to answer my questions and look out for me. I would recommend her to anyone. Wonderful experience. Will definitely use Gretchen again for future home buying or selling.
Mat S. – Sacramento, CA (2013)
Gretchen went above and beyond my expectations during a painful financial experience. I recommend this program to all military and civilian friends/co-workers.
Glenn B. – Sacramento, CA (2013)
Gretchen made selling our home and buying a new one almost effortless. Her communication and knowledge were superior. She went above and beyond in communicating with the seller. We refer everyone we know to her if they plan on buying or selling a home.
Mike & Andrea D. – Lincoln, CA (2012)
GB4H is a wonderful program and Gretchen was fantastic. She quickly matched us with a realtor, who was outstanding. She communicated often and stayed engaged throughout the entire process. She promptly responded to emails or phone calls and her personal touch (sent birthday card to my wife) was over the top. I would unquestionably recommend the program to anyone. Outstanding communication and responsiveness..
James & Laura B. – Colorado Springs, CO (2012)
Even though this was a very stressful time, I always felt I was being take care of by Tracy (GB4H assigned agent) and Gretchen. Thanks for everything. I will continue to recommend your company!
Elizabeth & Zackary P. – Sacramento, CA (2012)
GB4Homes and especially Gretchen Bradley helped find the best Realtor to successfully sell my home and provided superior support during this stressful process - making herself available at all times! Loved the "program" and personal attention to relocate across the country. No detail was left to chance. Received help with movers, car transport and duplicate copy of Hud statement.
Sandra B. - Bellevue, WA (2012)
Gretchen was amazing! Not only was she always making time to answer any of our questions, she did it happily and made us extremely comfortable during a stressful time. Very friendly and professional at the same time. Would highly recommend her to anyone!
Jade M. - Chico, CA (2012)
Gretchen listened to my entire situation, asked good questions to help her serve my needs, and gave me a plethora of information that empowered me to make difficult decisions. She was attentive and vigilant in helping me find a solution for my underwater home. You don’t realize how little information or how few allies are out there for people who DO NOT want to foreclose on their house and want to do the right thing until it happens to you. Giving Back 4 Homes helped me maintain my dignity and gave me the resources and references to stay out of financial ruin.
Natalia C. – Sacramento, CA (2012)
Giving Back 4 Homes is such a great program. Gretchen Bradley worked with us through every step of the way. Her knowledge and expertise helped relieve some of the stress of the home buying process. She was extremely patient and reliable. Giving Back 4 Homes is lucky to have her as a Realtor.
Zac & Angela D. – W. Sacramento, CA (2012)
Gretchen was perfect in giving the information we needed as first time home owners. We didn't know anything of the process and she made us feel comfortable and confident. Everything went great and we owe that to Gretchen.
Mike S. - Chico, CA (2012)
Wow, where do I begin? We struck solid gold by picking Gretchen as our real estate agent. Right off the bat, she began to hone in on exactly what we were looking for in a house. We found two we loved on our first viewings. The first we were outbid on, because someone else recognized it was such a good deal. The other house, we were really excited about, but something to Gretchen seemed a little off. She quickly recognized they hadn't been paying their HOA's amongst other things, and helped us dodge a major debacle. On our second viewings, we found the house we eventually bought. There was already a bid on it, but Gretchen somehow worked us in to view the house. It hit every checkmark we wanted in a house. We couldn't be happier.
To sum up Gretchen's role, the lender/title company posed a constant uphill battle. There were constant unforeseen hoops around every corner. Gretchen somehow guided us through the whole mess. She really was an all-star. She saved us money by pointing out that we were being charged Southern California prices for a house up North. She constantly used her Underwriter experience to provide research and point out holes in flawed thinking of the lender/title company. She was our bulldog one moment and our knowledgeable real estate agent the next. She replied quickly all times of day or night. Never once did my wife or I feel ignored. I could go on and on, but I have work to do. All in all, if I buy 10 more houses, all of them will be with Gretchen.
Sally looked over to me when we finally closed and said, "We couldn't have picked a better real estate agent." My quick reply back to her, "You're damn right about that. We got lucky."
