- Serving California's Santa Clara County - and beyond! My clients regard me as their trusted advisor and feel confident that I truly represent them and their best interests.
Not unlike many in my field, I came about my career in a circuitous route. I received my bachelor degree in Civil Engineering from Vanderbilt University and headed west to seek my fortune. After working for an engineering research firm in the Bay Area, I got my masters degree in Civil Engineering, got married, and worked for three years. Two children later, I stayed at home to raise them. Then I jumped into the real estate market in 2000 and haven't looked back since.
I feel that my background in structural engineering and experience with project management are extremely helpful with real estate transactions. After all what is a real estate transaction but project management? My clients appreciate my honesty and my ability to help them look at the overall picture. I provide more to my clients than just working to make the real estate transaction successful. My clients regard me as their trusted advisor and feel confident that I truly represent their best interests.
I have been a top-producer for my company and have received several Intero Executive Circle Awards.
Areas of Expertise
My client's needs always come first. I provide value in excess of my client's expectations. My constant goal is mutual respect and long term relationships that are beneficial to all parties.
I am constantly honing my skills by taking continuing real estate education courses, earning new designations, learning new techniques to promote my client's best interests and researching new, innovative technology applications that are beneficial to my clients.
I am passionate about what I do! I strive to be positive, helpful and enthusiastic at all times - focusing on solutions, not challenges. I will take care of business first and foremost, but have fun and enjoy those around me in the process.
From Douglas and Gaylen Herfurth, Morgan Hill, CA:
"We want to convey our sincerest thanks to Gretchen for her extraordinary success in bringing our home to market and selling it in record time. Her professionalism combined with warmth, and an innate ability to say just the right thing at the right moment, were instrumental in making the process as flawless as we could have ever dreamed. We felt good knowing that she was representing us during the entire process. We appreciated the way she communicated, listened and responded to our needs. She set appropriate expectations in every aspect of the sale of our home."
From Art and Joanne Wicker, Morgan Hill, CA:
"My husband and I would like to thank and commend you, Gretchen, on the thorough and professional job you did in assisting with our recent income property purchase. We were quite impressed with your quick response to all of our questions. You brought to our attention important details that we were not even aware of. We fully believe that you are an integral part of our success in our real estate investments. We look forward to a long, lasting association with you and Intero."
From Kathy Campbell, Morgan Hill, CA:
"Gretchen really helped make this whole house buying process go smoothly. I so appreciate her support, encouragement and attention to details. Because of her extra effort, I felt well informed and in good hands. I couldn't have done it without her!"
From Suzanne Sheuerman, Morgan Hill, CA:
"We hired Gretchen Merrick to act as our real estate agent for both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our former home. Gretchen spent considerable time with us, never pressuring us to make a decision; always acting with the utmost professionalism. Gretchen kept her sense of humor through many home tours as we kept changing our minds about location, price and amenities. She sold our existing home in 28 days after two previous listing Realtors failed to obtain an offer. We highly recommend Gretchen if you are looking for an intelligent, balanced approach to acting on your behalf as you sell your home or shop for the home of your dreams."
From Bob and Christy Kaufman, Gilroy, CA:
"Gretchen was so wonderful in helping us buy and sell our home. She took the time and effort to get to know us and find out exactly what we were looking for. We immediately felt comfortable and at ease with her. She was very patient and encouraging, yet determined to get us what we wanted. When we finally found our "dream house", we believe she was instrumental in the success of our contract negotiations. She was incredibly detailed and organized, which helped keep us organized. We believe her professionalism, warmth, and sincerity were key to the quick sale of our previous home. She kept us very well informed and alleviated our concerns and fears. We were very confident in her abilities and she never let us down. We are very proud and eager to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
From Melinda Crocker, Morgan Hill, CA:
"Gretchen Merrick was my real estate agent when I sold my house in Morgan Hill, California. It was a difficult time for me because I was leaving a home I had shared with my husband who had recently passed away. She was not only extremely knowledgeable she also put my interest first, even above her own. She sold my house in record time and it was the smoothest sale I have experienced, although I had previously sold homes in several different states. I would recommend Gretchen without hesitation to be your representative for any type of real estate venture. She is the best!"
From Nadine Beasley, Eugene, OR:
"Gretchen is the best Realtor I have ever worked with. Her professionalism, warmth and honesty made the sale of my Morgan Hill house go swiftly and hassle free. From the professional photographs that were taken of my house, to being by my side at the buyer's inspection and the closing, she was there every step of the way. I couldn't have done it without her!"
