My husband and I were first-time home buyers and Gary made our experience amazing start to finish! From the moment we called Gary with our initial inquiry and questions, he has been so kind, honest, knowledgeable, and so present with us throughout each step in the process. Gary always went above and beyond to make sure our voices and needs were always heard and never pushed us to settle for anything less than what we wanted. He seriously knows the market so well, and my husband and I aren’t originally from the area but Gary was always able to answer all of our questions about each area we looked at. We are so happy and am thankful we got to work with him. Not that we are looking to sell our new home anytime soon, but when we look to sell our home one day we can’t wait to work with Gary to make it happen!

Having Gary on our side when selling our house made all the difference in the world! It was a unique an older house, but with creative marketing ideas, extreme dedication and superb professionalism throughout the process, Gary got it done. We always felt comforted by his confidence and patience, and he had sold answers and advice for every scenario that came up. OUR satisfaction was always at the forefront of his efforts. In fact, at one point we considered doing a lease-purchase deal with an interested party, for which Gary spent a lot of time drafting and communicating the agreement, and also would have deferred any of his own commission for a year until the sale was closed! And when it became evident that this arrangement wasn't going to work, there were no worries - because he had been continuing with selling efforts and open houses all along. Gary's industry experience and knowledge is a strong advantage to his clients, and he is an excellent listener and communicator - we would very highly recommend him to anyone. You will be blessed to have Gary on your team!

Gary recently represented us as a buyers agent and as a sellers agent as we went through the process of purchasing a newly constructed home and sold our home of 13 years. It is always tempting to buy and sell a home without representation and avoid the Realtor's fees. However, through both processes having Gary as our agent proved to be invaluable. First, when negotiating terms of a contract for new construction, he often brought up questions for the builder that we would not have considered on our own. Which his years of experience, Gary has a great deal of knowledge about issues homeowners often face down thee road, and we were able to head some of them off because of things he would bring up. He also read through the fine print of our contract with an eye for legal details. In the final days before the closing took place, he found two errors in the paperwork from the title company, which saved us hundreds of dollars. When getting our home ready to put on the market, Gary brought in professionals who helped us stage our home and take professional photographs. With a 40+ year old home, there were many small repairs and updates that were needed. Gary gave helpful and specific advice on what we might want to update before showings. In addition, he recommended sever professionals so we could get this work done. One of the most helpful things was his knowledge of the market in our area. He provided us with roughly 20 comps which were so helpful as we se our asking price. In the 10 days it took for us to enter into a contract, he updated us with stats of how homes in our area were selling. Once our house was on the market, he was still active in the process, even when COVID-19 prevented the industry from holding open houses. During a very chaotic time, my family was able to focus on the physical work of moving because we knew Gary would be paying attention to the legal and monetary details. He communicated with us often through both processes and we always knew right where everything stood. If you are looking for an agent with years of experience, who does his homework, and who conducts himself with integrity, I would highly recommend Gary Hoeferkamp. We couldn't be happier with the results.
