Get to know Gretchen Merrick
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 consistently Intero Executive Circle Awards for top production.
