I have to admit that I was reluctant to relocate to New England from the DC area. I have found, however, that I truly love all the the Upper Valley has to offer. For over 20 years I have resided in Hanover, Lebanon, Enfield with summers on Lake Mascoma. In summary, I can think of no better place to have settled and watch my daughters grow up. So give me a call and let me know how I can help...
My Client Reviews
My husband and I could not be happier with having Gabbie help us with the purchase of our new home. She was very patient, extremely responsive, and gave solid advice in areas that either we asked or were necessary- without ever being pushy. We highly recommend Gabbie, and will choose her if we ever plan to move again, but hopefully that is not anytime soon as we absolutely love our new home!
When it can time to sell my property I fully expected it to be a lengthy and complicated process. I knew from the start that I wanted Coldwell Banker to be my realty company, but I didn't know how to choose a realtor without knowing them personally. Truly good fortune connected me with Gabbie Black at Coldwell. From the get-go Gabbie gave me a clear sense of what I needed to do to get the property listed. Within the first minutes of meeting Gabbie I felt confident that she was the right person to be working with. I felt immediately that Gabbie was a clear communicator, something I put high value on. Gabbie took charge on literally every part of the process that I preemptively knew I would find bewildering, leaving me the time I needed to pack up my space so that it could be shown to its greatest advantage. She was directive and encouraging of the work I was doing to clear my building, readying it to show. She moved through the processes of procuring paperwork and preparing papers for signing with careful attention to detail while keeping things moving at what felt like a very proactive pace. I had a sense of teamwork while in the process of selling my building. Gabbie had a perfect sense of how my building was to be priced. Any time I had a question, and there were many, Gabbie got back to me, usually within minutes. She knows her professional domain incredibly well, which made me feel at ease and confident. The process of selling my building was surprisingly fast and smooth-- and I feel this is largely attributable to Gabbie's knowledge of the real estate profession and her great work attitude. I feel hugely grateful to have had Gabbie as the realtor for my house.
Gabbie did an excellent job selling our house. She worked closely with us to evaluate the right price, a marketing plan and completing the transaction in a very timely fashion. We found her a pleasure to deal with and very responsive to questions and concerns. We would heartily recommend her for others moving from or into the greater Hanover area.
Gabbie is very knowledgeable about the area and was a pleasure to work with. Quick responses to calls and emails was great! She quickly learned what we were looking for and presented us with properties that fit our needs. Highly recommend her to anyone for sale or purchase.
Gabbie is amazing! She is professional, caring, thorough, experienced - you name it, she excels. I have done seven different real estate transactions with Gabbie and, in each, Gabbie has exceeded my expections. She cares about her clients - in each transaction, she has taken the time to understand my requirements while adding her own helpful observations in constructive, not pushy, ways. Through her interaction with other agents and contractors (banks, appraisers, inspectors, moving companies, surveyors, etc.) she made each transaction flow smoothly through to closing. There are a lot of "behind the scenes" negotiations that happen in real estate and Gabbie kept me informed but not mired in the details of the buying and selling process. She knows a lot of players in the market and gets things done very efficiently, effectively and consistently. Gabbie has earned and deserves at least ten, not five, rating stars!
Gabbie was truly a pleasure to work with. She provided me with very valuable advice gained through her years of successful work for other clients that guided me as I prepared my home for sale. That along with her dedication to me as a client proven by her always prompt response to my text messages and phone calls allowed for the remarkably fast sale of my home-at a price which was more than I initially paid six years ago! I was amazed at her ability to negotiate which she did entirely on my behalf while only contacting me it was necessary allowing me to conduct business and feel very secure that my interests were being attended to professionally. I would not hesitate an instant to recommend Gabbie as an agent, and I would encourage anyone interested in a professional, efficient and I should also say very approachable and friendly agent to list their property to contact her.
I'm a first-time home buyer and was very lucky and very happy to have had Gabbie as my realtor! She was incredibly helpful every step of the way: always quick to reply to my (many) questions, very easy to schedule house visits with (and in the case of the house I bought, multiple visits, sometimes on short notice!), gave very effective, knowledgeable advice, and overall was a complete pleasure to work with. I'd highly recommend her to anyone looking at real estate in the area!
"We worked with Gabbie for over a year, and we give her a lot of credit for being so patient with us! She is very responsive and a pleasure to work with. It was particularly helpful to get her honest feedback about a property; she would point out both pros and cons about a property that we hadn't always considered. She is very friendly while maintaining a high sense of professionalism. Gabbie guided us through the inspection and negotiation process with ease and we ultimately ended up with a house we love."
Gabbie was fabulous from the start. Very knowledgeable about the market, as well as informed about details to make the house more marketable, like surveyors to help with zoning. She was also very competent and allowed me to be very hands off during the process, which as a busy professional was incredibly helpful. She got done what others couldn't.
Gabbie was very easy to work with during our home search in a difficult market. She was always available to show us many houses, knew her stuff, and made the process go smoothly.
Gabbie was consistently upbeat and very helpful. She came highly recommended and did not disappoint.
Gabbie's service is top notch. She was our agent for both selling our former home and buying our new one. No matter what time or day, she was always there for us to answer questions, resolve issues, provide advice, etc. Gabbie certainly provided all of the strengths listed below in an exceptional manner, but is also patient and caring. She was a joy to work with and would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.
