Gina Rizza and her team are “the bomb”!!
Two years ago my husband and I started to think about downsizing but we didn’t know exactly what we wanted to do. Stay in the area? Buy a smaller place, rent an apartment or townhouse? So many questions.
We met Gina during one of our Sunday jaunts to see what was available in our area to get a feel for what it would be like to go from 3400 feet to less than 2000. Daunting to say the least. Gina picked up on our indecision and frustration and asked all the right questions. She gave us insight and things to think about, as we continued our journey of decisions. Gina was thoughtful of my resistance to leaving my home of 23 years and all the memories that brought with it. She asked us what types of homes we were looking for at this point and to not worry if we change our mind. She asked if it was ok if she sent us properties that matched what we thought we wanted right now and if we wanted to see any of them she would show us. She said that she would be there with information when we needed it and not hound us.
We continued like this with Gina while I went through my home, getting rid of all the extra stuff I’d accumulated over the years with 3 kids etc!! We asked Gina to come over and give her opinion on what we still needed to do. She gave us easy to fix suggestions for the house and she gently told me what still needed to go.
Finally I’d emptied out enough to call Gina and say we were ready.
She came over and gave suggestions on staging, and she made it fun and gave reasons for all her suggestions.
Through out all our interactions with Gina she was always cognizant about my feelings about leaving and she listened to me, coached me and gave me kudos for all my efforts and work towards our goal.
Gina listened to us about listing price and provided us with all the facts about the market as it existed at that time. We listed towards the
end of August, and sold in two days, for over ask!
Through out the entire process Gina was engaged and committed to us. At no time did we ever wait more than a couple hours for a response from Gina on any question we had, usually her responses were within the hour!!
She’s knowledgeable, professional, funny, kind, approachable, insightful, loyal, warm, and a team player.
We decided to rent, but when we are ready to buy again, we will be calling Gina!!
You should too. ??
