My experience with Gordon Allen is two-fold: Gordon was my
agent for both the purchase of my home in 2003 and the subsequent
sale of that property in 2005. I found Gordon through his web
site and have felt very fortunate for that.
Gordon did a wonderful job of finding out my needs in purchasing a house and easily informed me of the realities of my budget, desired location, and timeframe. Gordon was quickly able to fine tune the search for properties in a difficult market to my individual preferences and this led to the home I owned for 2 years.
When it came time for me to sell my home, I thought of no one else but Gordon Allen to represent me. He had been an excellent trusted advisor in the purchase of my home and I felt certain he would do just as good a job in helping me sell. I was absolutely correct.
I informed Gordon of my intent to sell and he quickly ascertained my goals for the sale. While working over the weekend, Gordon put together research on the housing market in my neighborhood including pricing history, comparable recent sales, and a marketing plan. Gordon showed me that the most recent sales in my development had been severely under priced and the market would bear a higher price. All of these turned out to be very important.
After presenting his research to me, Gordon listed the property at the price we had decided on. The home had at least one showing a day--indicating a competitive price point--and I accepted an offer in the price range we had aimed for two weeks after listing the property.
Gordon has made the process of both buying and selling a home very smooth and easy. I cannot recommend him enough to anyone who is purchasing or selling a home in the SF Bay Area.
