    I can not recommend Gina highly enough - she handled everything with a professional and positive attitude and made me feel completely at ease during one of the most stressful times of my life. She was always available to answer any questions and I could not have gotten through this without her. She is smart, personable and extremely hardworking and completely committed to her clients. I trusted her judgement completely - she truly was phenomenal. Thank you for everything, Gina - you are the absolute best.

    Catherine gave Gina Marie 5 stars out of 5
    My husband and I worked with Gina for a year and a half prior to finding our home. Throughout the entire process Gina was beyond amazing in every aspect! She truly goes above and beyond and has her clients best interest at hand. She's honest, dependable, and extremely knowledgeable in this field. Any question we ever had Gina was able to answer, thoroughly. She truly fights for her clients and we wouldn't have wanted to go through this process with anyone else. Above all, she's a great & sincere person. We not only found our first home but we also made a lifelong friend

    Catherine & Eirik, I loved every minute of our house hunting. It was always a great time. I told you the first time we met that a house that was truly meant to be would come along.. it did, just longer than we thought it would. It was my privilege to work with you all. I am blessed to now call you my friend. Wishing you, Eirik & Santino a lifetime of happiness in your beautiful new home!

    I am a first time homebuyer who was so grateful to have Gina on my team through this whole process. I truly believe she cares about her clients wants and needs. She gets the job done and that was proven even at the closing table. She responded to every phone call and text I had right away! I was guided through this process with her patience, knowledge, and professionalism. We started our process in September and closed right before the holidays in November. She referred me to an amazing team that included the inspection company, Bank, and lawyer that also helped deliver my beautiful home . I don't believe the process would have been any smoother for us if we did not use her. -Elizabeth A.

    We don't even know where to begin with how incredible our experience with Gina was with finding our new home. As first time home buyers, finding a house and trusting so many people with everything you've worked so hard for is petrifying. But with Gina, she made it so easy and was so comforting thoughout the entire process. After letting her know of everything we were looking for in a home, she truly listened and absorbed every word and wish we shared, and the very first house that she thought suited our needs was the house we fell in love with and ended up buying. Even through us freaking out during the process, she always made herself available to call us and calm our nerves. Her compassion for others mixed with her dedication and love for what she does truly made her the best realtor we could've ever asked for. Gina and the group of people she suggested for us to work with turned out to be the most perfect team, and made what is normally a brutal process so quick and simple. Working with Gina was like working with a part of the family, and we can't imagine ever going through this journey without her. Thank you so much for helping us find our perfect home, Gina!! Would recommend her to absolutely anyone. -Jo & Kristin

    I had the pleasure of getting to know Gina during the purchase of my new home. It was a very stressful process because of the type of loan we were doing so it added stress and frustration to everyone involved. Gina was always there to help me, answer my questions, let me vent, etc.. she never made me feel like I was bothering her, even after I asked her question after question, she always had the answer for me, responded almost immediately, she even lended an ear for me and my husband when we were at our wits end. If it weren't for her, we would've lost our house. I am so thankful for Gina and have gained a friend! Anyone who works with her is in the most capable of hands. I would gladly recommend her to anyone I know!!!

    Gina is a fantastic person and realtor. Personable and warm. When we first contacted Gina, she responded immediately and started to show us homes. She always worked around our schedules and made sure we were able to view the homes we wanted to see. She is very knowledgeable and always gave advise and was able to point out things in the homes we would never have thought of. She has a lot of contacts across the industry and put us in contact with some really great people. She was with us from beginning to the end. When we were waiting on the banks and lawyers she was able to step in and push the process along. When she didn't have to! I would highly recommend Gina to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house. She's the kind of person you would have over for Sunday dinner.

    We originally met Gina as she was the property manager at the house we were renting. She was always incredibly responsive and was an excellent liaison between us and the home owner. During the 3 years we rented this home we got to know Gina and realized that her knowledge and understanding of the local housing market was second to none, so when it came time to buy a home, we knew exactly who to go to. We asked Gina to work with us and her first task was to understand exactly what we were looking for, where we were looking and our price range. From that point on, we were on auto pilot. She uncovered homes that she would knew we would like to look at and never wasted our time on homes that were out of our specifications. If we would bring homes to her, she would get back to us within hours with the why we wouldn't like that home and set up showings for the ones that she knew we would. She was ALWAYS spot on. When we found the home that we wanted, Gina became one of the best buyer advocates that anyone could ask for. She is a master negotiator and helped us spend our money as if it were her own. She took ownership of the entire process and left no stone unturned. She made the the buying experience pleasurable and her confidence in the process made our lives during the buying cycle that much easier. I have heard many horror stories and been through a couple of my own of the home search & closing process horror shows, but not this time. Gina was an absolute pleasure to work with. Gina is honest, intelligent, reliable and a certain expert in her field. I only wish I had 20 friends that were looking for homes so I could point them in her direction.

    Cathy gave Gina Marie 5 stars out of 5
    I have used Gina Marie Bettenhauser and her team for both the purchasing and selling of all of my personal homes over the last 15 years and would never have thought to use anyone else. Gina is very easy to work with, professional and attentive to every detail. She and I have gone through many frustrating selling and closing processes. She is honest and responds very quickly to every phone call, email, and text. She has helped me feel well informed throughout the process of buying and selling. In my most recent home sale, which was an out of state move, she was my lifesaver. She went above and beyond in ensuring our vacant home was safe and secure while living out of state. Gina Went above and beyond in taking care of a minor flood issue while the home was vacant by coordinating all contractors and their services during this time. As you can imagine, living so far from our home was near impossible to manage the work that needed to be done as well as coordinate the services. What she has done for me and my family through the years will never be forgotten. Cathy C.

    David gave Gina Marie 5 stars out of 5
    After looking at so many homes and loosing out to either investors or people having bidding wars and not to mention some realtors who were less then professional. My wife and I were just about to give up looking for a home, when we came across a home we wanted to look at. We called wanting to look at it and Gina answered. She took the time to speak to us and show us the home. We fell in love with it immediately. We told her our story and she listened with her heart, she showed kindness and compassion. She was not like other realtors who just yeah yeah us and was only in to how much money they could get. Gina truly wanted to help she saw the desperation on our faces. We told her we wanted to make an offer she took our offer spoke to the owner while talking to us at the same time and our offer was excepted. The house was ours ! We are so happy in our new home. Gina always called or texted us back right away when we had questions. Her honesty is refreshing. She worked hard for us and was always on top of things. She treated us like people not like we were just another Commission. She put us in touch with a fantastic mortgage company and the people there were also great. Both of them together made sure things went smoothly and quickly. We not only found a wonderful realtor we trust we also found and made a friend. If we ever decide to sell our home or any family member needs to sell their home or buy a home we will only deal with Gina and her company. David & Teresa Langan

    We first met Gina a few years ago when we first starting thinking about relocating. We were greatly impressed with her knowledge of our area since were were out of her office area. When we finally decided to make the move, she arrived with all updated information ready to tackle the task. Everything went smooth and we couldn't be more happy. She kept up informed every step of the way thru the entire process and was quick to answer any questions via email or text. And I had many!

    Cannot say enough about Gina’s level of service. Home searching can be a daunting task and frustrating at time, and having someone with the right knowledge of the local market is a valuable asset in your side. Gina was able to point us in the right direction when it came to selecting the right neighborhood and was always prompt in answering the many questions we had before, on and after our many visits to the houses we saw. She was very accommodating when the family came along in the search and always was willing to answer my kid’s silly questions. Kudos to Gina, again, for an amazing level of service.
