Happy Clients Are The Key To My Success!



I had an outstanding experience working with Irene! I am a first-time homebuyer interested in relocating to Chapel Hill. With less than 24 hours notice of my visit, she volunteered to meet me early on a Saturday morning to search listings and view properties. She exceeded my expectations. 

Our meeting began with her educating me on the home buying process, followed by her sharing a wealth of knowledge about living in Chapel Hill and the Triangle area - including cultural and social activities, business, career and educational opportunities, and other attractions. I felt comfortable with her right away. She gave me a tour around the UNC campus and downtown Chapel Hill, then showed me a few communities. The last one we visited was a beautiful new community where we spent a lot of time touring their models and specs, which I loved. It was immediately clear Irene paid attention and understood what's important to me in a home. 

I lost track of time because I was so focused on the homes tour and asking the builder so many questions, we never even made it to lunch. Irene asked great questions on my behalf. Late into the afternoon, the whole Saturday spent, we (I) finally called it a day. I truly appreciated Irene's patience, guidance and felt very well taken care of in her capable hands. I have since put plans to relocate on hold; however, Irene stays in touch and follows up from time to time. Her customer service skills are top-notch. I highly recommend selecting Irene as your realtor.


Irene Gaye possesses the attributes necessary for being an excellent realtor and has my highest recommendation.  She knows the local real estate market; she is diligent, responsive, and yet very patient with clients.  Irene is both professional and personable and clearly takes pride in doing a great job.  In our particular case as a buyer, there were many rough spots on the road to closing and in every instance Irene was a great guide and gave excellent consultation on how to handle each bump easily.  It would be hard to envision someone doing a better job.  We are very happy that we choose to work with her.


Irene Gaye is a great realtor because she has a tremendous "grasp" of the market and possesses that intuitive feeling as to what a house is really worth and how well it will sell... in addition, she always has the facts available to back her up.  Irene's knowledge of the housing market gave us great confidence in our purchase, giving us up to date market info was extremely important to us in buying our recently built home... Irene has that perfect balance of knowledge, drive, and enthusiasm that gets the job done. 


I just wanted to thank you again for everything you did for me to be a homeowner.  You are very professional and kind.  I would recommend you to anyone who's looking to buy a home.  It's still hard to believe that I own a house now.  I am very excited and motivated in many ways.
