Gina is on my "A" list of realtors I recommend to my real estate clients. Too many other realtors think their job is done once they have listed a property and then are absent until they pick up their commission check at the closing. Gina however is very proactive and is involved from the very beginning right to the end and all points in between - in fact she's not shy in checking up on the attorneys making sure all issues are resolved for a smooth sale for her clients.

We wanted to Thank You for all that you have done for our family. You were extremely honest with us and made us feel very comfortable talking with you. You have went beyond the our expectations of a Realtor®, from linking me to the website to assuring me that my time was important to you. If anyone comes to me and mentions that they are looking for a a Realtor®, I would insist that they call you.
THANKS AGAIN! The Mayotte Family, 1st time homebuyer
I appreciate all that you did for me to get my house sold. I was very pleased to see the price and I know that you did your homework when looking for comparables because of the unique character of my home. You can bet I will recommend you to everyone I know. Thank you very much!

Gina Schaal has been the best. Gina sold my jointly owned townhouse and has helped me buy my current residence and is also the agent for the sale of the another townhouse of mine. Gina is always there with up to date information, market trends, and suggestions to help get the transaction completed. She's polite, informed, Very Professional and willing to go the extra mile for her clients and for others involved in the transaction. I've heard nothing but positive things from my inspector and my mortgage person. The one word that comes to mind with Gina is INTEGRITY. I cannot say enough good things about her.
