This townhome is gorgeous inside and out – and we’re definitely eyeing that outdoor patio for future summer night hangouts. Plus it’s walking distance to some of the hottest businesses in town, like The Beer Mule, Aloha Hola, and Ritual Ride Studio.

Back at home, you have a tastefully updated 3 bedroom 2.5 bathroom that’s just the right size for a couple working from home or a growing family. So, will it be a night in or a night out? Either is the right choice.

Thank you for your kind words. We loved working with you!

“Gabrielle is a true professional. From the start, she was easy to work with, promptly responded to all calls and texts, and listened to what our needs were in pursuit of finding us our first home. She also connected us with an amazing loan broker and stayed in constant communication with everybody involved to ensure there were no surprises with our loan approval. She kept us disciplined and on track by following up on our “to-do list”. When we found the right home for us in this impossible, highly competitive market, there were already multiple offers on the table. The seller’s agent was not a local realtor, and no personal connections could weigh in on the outcome here. Gaby stepped into overdrive mode and immediately started building a rapport with the seller’s agent. We were able to put together an offer that we felt comfortable with. Gaby made sure the offer was presented in an attractive light. Behind the scenes, we were racing against time and Gaby stayed with us throughout the process into the late hours on a Sunday night. Gaby made sure to discuss the pros and cons, risks, and timelines pertaining to our offer. Our offer was accepted! Again, we went into full work mode right away. She made it a priority to ensure we met all the deadlines. She stayed on top of every checklist, and every inspection and ensured our loan was moving along smoothly. We had the keys to our new home within 3 weeks of making the offer. After we closed on the house, Gaby continued to stay in contact and followed up a few times after we had already settled in. I expected our first-time home purchase to encounter a bunch of bumps and bruises. Fortunately, Gaby made sure the process was so smooth that it made us want to do it all over again! We are truly grateful and love our new home!”
