“In the process of selling my Mother’s home, after her passing in early March of this year, I was fortunate to be introduced to Carol Gilles a real estate sales lady, who was very knowledgeable in the area. We agreed on a price, and she went to work. During the sale of the house, she not only was my agent, but I considered her my friend. Every call I made to her office was returned, and all my questions answered professionally, and thoroughly. Getting rid of a lifetime of memories, pictures, furniture, etc., isn’t easy, Carol made it much easier for me. I’m sorry I don’t have another house to sell. Carol would be my choice. Thank you, Carol, for your patience, and understanding, it was a pleasure doing business with you.”
