“Gayle went above and beyond what was expected to sell my home. She has become more than a realtor to me. I consider her a wonderful friend and have and will recommend her to others. She is the best!”
Norma Martin – Seller

“Gayle Chapel’s professionalism was second to none. She was there every step of the way, and went above and beyond keeping the lines of communication open. We accepted an offer on day one of our property being listed and we attribute the quick sale to Gayle’s experience in the local market. We have already recommended Gayle to several friends.”

Kevin Heier, Brookings (Seller)

“Gayle Chapel has the knowledge of the community, the experience with the business, the professionalism, and the personal integrity, to make her an excellent option for anyone looking to buy or sell a house in Brookings!” 

Dr. Clark A. Sexton, Brookings

Gayle Chapel was very kind and professional, answering any questions I had about houses and thinking up some of her own that I had not thought of. The overall experience with her was excellent and had me worrying about very little on my house of choice.

When my husband and I started considering selling our home, we were unsure if we wanted to hire a realtor or not. I did a Google search of realtors in Brookings, Gayle was the only one that had outstanding reviews.

Based on the reviews we decided to contact her for a free market evaluation, still with the understanding we were not 100% sold on using a realtor. After our free market evaluation, that was amazingly assembled, Gayle was not pushy about the sale at all. She just told us to think on it for a few days and let her know either way, if we wanted to hire her or not.

In her market evaluation of my house she was confident she could get me much more money for my house than I had hoped for.

My house was on the market for less than a day and we got an offer that we accepted! I was shocked that the house sold that quickly and we got what we wanted for it. Since the house sold much quicker than we thought it would, I was a little stressed out. But she handled all of my questions with grace (as I ask a lot of questions when I’m nervous or stressed). She made all of the appointments (inspection, assessment, etc.) and she was very understanding of our schedule. She was always willing to meet us whenever was best for us.

Selling our home was very hands-off for us. Gayle handled everything and kept us updated on what was happening and what the next steps were.

Alongside selling our home, we are also working with Gayle to build our new home. She has been amazing contacting the contractor and getting any questions we had answered in a timely manner.

 I would recommend Gayle’s services to anyone looking to buy or sell in and around Brookings.

I’ve known Gayle for many years and know that she has the expertise and attention to every detail in everything she does which is very important to me. We kept in contact over the last couple of years and she knew I was looking for a small house that would fit my budget. Not an easy thing to accomplish in Brookings. I saw this home in Aurora on the website and she set up a showing. From there she was great through the entire process even while she was out of town during the negotiations. I would highly recommend Gayle to anyone!!

Gayle took the time to fully evaluate our home and explain the market plan for selling.  As first time home-sellers, that was a big help!  She was professional, helpful, timely and personable. Everything we could as for and more.

John & Jennifer Flynn

We heard of Gayle Chapel from a neighbor across from our property, my husband mowed her lawn and she said we should consider Gayle to sell our place.

We enjoyed working with Gayle Chapel from the first day we met her, and we now consider her our friend. She kept us in the know every time that there was her or someone showing the house.

I would recommend Gayle for anyone looking for a very good Realtor. Gayle Chapel is a very professional Realtor, and now a very good friend. I would give a great recommendation to anyone that asks for a realtor in Brookings, or anyone who asks for the best Real Estate Agency in the area!

Thanks Gayle Chapel for all that you did for us.

Very professional presentation.  Excellent photos that presented our property.  A family member’s previous experience with Gayle put her at the top of the list.  Our Hansina property had two offers the day the agent tour was complete.  Gayle received a complete vote of confidence from our son, who had previous experience with Gayle’s professionalism in selling a home.  We found his evaluation accurate.

Gayle Chapel is very knowledgeable about real estate in general. She knows the area very well as well as real estate business, contracts, law ect. She has a welcoming personality and above all else we trust Gayle to do what is right for both the buyer and seller.

Dan & Kathryn Billet

Gayle was kind, professional; she let us know of houses on the market, immediately. We had a very good experience with her, and found a perfect home. I would definitely recommend Gayle and Century 21.
