"We have known Gary and Mel Gentry since we purchased our first house in Austin. We have stayed in touch with them and they have provided us with guidance when we needed it. We recently decided to sell our home in Austin and we of course used The Gentry Group. They have a great team of people, especially Claire, as well as a network of contractors and businesses that made it easy to get the house ready to sell. They communicated with us through every step in the process and were always available for any questions we had. Unfortunately, the first buyer fell through, but they were on top of things so quickly that they were able to get in contact with the buyer that had the second-best offer and get them on board with the purchase of the house. If they hadn’t reacted so quickly, we would have had to start the process over. Selling a house is always challenging, but even more so with the pandemic. With the assistance of the Gentry Group, we were able to work through the process much quicker than I expected. We thank them for their hard work and dedication!"
"Dear Gentry Team, I cannot thank you enough individually and as a tem for your great work in finding a buyer and closing on our property. I quite literally, could not have done this without you! Speical thanks to Claire Camp. It seems that I spoke daily to Clair about some issue. She was always cool and calm and knew the answers to each of my questions. Each of you proved to be a credit to our profession and I was fortunate to have you working for me. I would not hesitate to contract with The Gentry Group should the situation arise again."
“Gary and his team have helped us in the buying and selling process and we have referred several friends in the past. They are very professional and friendly. Gary really knows the Austin market and we were very comfortable with everything he recommended.”
“Excellent work from Gary Gentry on staging and setting pricing expectations and goals. Gary and Claire Camp where very response and helpful every step of the way, from interaction with the buyers to helping with contractors and repair suggestions.This is the most professional team we have ever worked with. After working with 4 realtors - these guys were way above others in every facet of the sale. I couldn't think you could find a better team.”
-Michael S. Rovner
“The Gentry Group helped us for the third time! Obviously, since this is the 3rd time we have used them, we love their service. Their service and their knowledge is top notch; it brings us back each time we need to buy or sell a house!”
“Did a great job at setting a higher price for the house than what we were expecting and ended up selling it for more than the asking price! The house sold within 8 hours! I never thought that would happen.”
“From my initial inquiry through closing, everyone was attentive and responsive. I received open and honest feedback with respect to options that may lead to acquiring the listing price. I especially enjoyed the detail from Gary when reviewing the ‘Market Analysis’. Thank you all very much!!”
“The Gentry Group provided a full-service (really, including someone to advise us on staging our house and helping us deal with our particular situation, a wonderful photographer who made our house look astonishing, and referrals to service providers so we were sure we were getting quality service promptly. Our house sold within 24 hours for more than our asking price. Gary helped us set a realistic price so that we would not have 3 or 4 months on the market. The service could not have been more friendly, helpful, patient (we were a work in progress for about two years), responsive, and compassionate. I don't know why anyone would choose another realtor!”
-Barrett Ann Hansen
“Gary Gentry and his team helped sell our house in record time when we needed it sold fast!”
-Chris & Kelly Coffey
“My wife and I decided that we needed some extra room and it was time to move when she was about 5 months pregnant with our second child. With Gary and his (excellent) crew, we managed to find our new home and sell our existing one prior to our second child's arrival. They managed to work with our busy schedule and made the process quite enjoyable, even for our 2 year old. Our little one would always remind us "that's Mr. Gary" on the for sale sign in the front yard.”
“Gary was exceptional! His team was always available when I needed help. Everyone was so friendly, professsional and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this group!”
“The Gentry Group went above and beyond our expectations. They were extremely responsive to our needs and used their expertise to help us find our dream home!”
“Being in the military, we move quite often and have bought and sold many houses. Gary Gentry is without a doubt the best realtor we have ever had. He is thorough, dedicated, and will work with you and the buyers/sellers to get your house bought or sold!”
“Your agency would be the very first recommendation on our lips. Our experience exceeded all of our hopes throughout the entire procedure of selling our home. Thanks to everyone in front and behind the scenes!”
“The Gentry Group came to our rescue after our property was listed with another agent and with no offers for nearly 90 days. We needed an emergency recovery from this stressful situation and they were there for us. They put their network of connections and savvy marketing to your service- not only to sell your home but to educate you in the process. They can help you with tiny or bigger home staging projects, all done by efficient professionals. Just about when the house was ready to be listed again, our home had an offer. Yes, before they had the chance to list it! You surely are amazed as we were when we completed the title paperwork.
The work of The Gentry Group was impeccable. We know that if we ever need to buy or sell a home, we will be there again. And, without a doubt, we will make sure others get to know Gary, Mel & Claire. They surely are the most efficient team in Texas.”
-Ricardo Fritzsche, PhD, Project Director, PRA International
“I am writing this letter to recommend The Gentry Group for your next real estate transaction. I have purchased two homes with The Gentry Group and have met with Gary and Mel Gentry on many occasions for advice and guidance. This team represents one of the best real estate groups in Austin.
This past summer, I decided to take my first step towards investing in Austin real estate. After I had decided on the home I wished to purchase The Gentry Group collectively helped me beat out two competing offers and were able to get all of my requested funding for repairs. This transaction could not have gone any better. In summary, I could not recommend anyone higher than Gary Gentry and the Gentry Group. I recommend Gary to all of my friends and none of them have ever been disappointed.”
-Mark Haney, Project Manager, Enthought, Inc.
“Gary and his team exceeded my expectations in every way when I bought my first house in April 2010.
Gary has an unyielding commitment to client service, and always went the extra mile – whether it meant scaling a half-finished staircase to scope out a new condo construction, accommodating my schedule into the evening hours with a flood lamp in hand, or arranging a last minute appointment to show my new house to my mother when she was in town. He is a fountain of knowledge about the Austin housing market, and was tireless in equipping me with the necessary information to make an informed decision.
Gary, Mel and Claire were thorough, timely and professional at all times. They are good people with high integrity and I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to trust them with my home purchase.”
-Lara C Jeremko, Private Markets Investments, University of Texas Investment Management Company
“The personalized approach and dedication to detail of [The Gentry Group] along the entire process, adapting to the different circumstances that were encountered, were key for the successful sale. We will gladly recommend you as a very dedicated and effective team for real estate sales.”
-Edgar & Aura Guevara
“It was heartening to find that no matter what the price tag, no matter how nice the neighborhood, both Mel and Gary never made us feel that they were simply trying to “get the sale”. Interestingly, the day that we found the house that we eventually purchased, Mel and Gary were enjoying a personal vacation. That morning, we called Mel and asked her to personally place our bid on the house. Despite being on vacation, she acted swiftly on our request. Her quick response would prove to be the difference between winning and losing the home.
From the placing of our bid to the day of closing, we could not have asked for two more experienced and thorough agents to be in our corner."
-Daniel Armendariz & Megan Alrutz, Old West Austin Home Owners
“Thanks to your detailed guidance about staging, our house looked fantastic. We were very pleased that in such a “tough economy” for the housing market, our house sold in less than a day for the full list price. We know from tracking the market that our house, with your help, far exceeded its competition. Thank you for that!
-Amanda & Scott Taylor
“While many real estate professionals work 8-5, your team puts in 200%. The Gentry Group style epitomizes low pressure and high service, and I’m sure that’s why you continue to be so successful. You’ve assembled an amazing team of people that cannot be beat. I will continue to refer anyone and everyone looking to buy or sell in Austin to your group.”
“We had a great experience working with you and your team to sell our home on Onion Hollow so quickly and at close to our asking price during the national real estate crisis. Your knowledge of our market and personal attention to the staging process was invaluable in determining the right price and helping us to get it in ready condition.”
-Tom & Marsha Mucks
“Thank you for the excellent direction and support you and your team provided to sell our home in Canyon Creek. This was by far the best home sale we have ever experienced. Your knowledge of the market place and your attention to detail was unique. You spent the necessary time in one-on-one meetings in our home advising us about preparing and staging the house for sale. After implementing your recommendations and putting the home on the market, we received three bids including the sale offer in the first ten days. And the home sold for the asking price! What a relief to complete the sale in such a timely manner.”
-Mickey and Deemonnia Canady
“Through wise recommendations on staging and the thorough market analysis Gary did to determine the perfect price, we went on the market standing out boldly from our competition! We are proud to tell all our friends and colleagues the story that our house sold the first day it went on the market for full price! In the midst of a slump in the real estate market, we are confident this was a result of all the preparation and advising The Gentry Group provided.
Thanks again, Gary, for leading a real estate group so sound in integrity and customer service. Each member of your team has been a delight to work with. We will confidently refer all of our Austin friends and colleagues to The Gentry Group for all their real estate needs.”
-Jay & Jessica Wampler
“We sincerely believe that you and your team’s experience and attention to detail led to an attractive offer and shorter time on market for the sale of our home, in addition to a well-negotiated offer and smooth transition for the purchase of our new home.
We will definitely recommend you and your team to anyone we know either buying or selling a home in Austin.”
-Daniel & Nicole Hadad
“The process [of selling my brother’s house in Austin] went very smoothly, in spite of the fact that I live here in San Antonio. Both Claire and Diane were very helpful in arranging for services to be performed on the home to get the house ready for sale as well as complete the sale. This allowed me not to have to deal with these issues from another city and gave me complete confidence that these matters would be taken care of satisfactorily.”
-Chris K Kunz, CPA, Director of Tax & Principal, Hanke Group
“Thank you all so very much for your assistance in the sale of our home in Legend Oaks and the purchase of our new home in Circle C West. Your expertise and professionalism were above par for both experiences and we are truly grateful for your help……Anyone in Central Texas would be lucky to have The Gentry Group as their real estate team!”
-Catherine Herter, Director, Annual Fund and Special Events, St. Andrews Episcopal School
“We wanted to write and thank you so much for your expertise and service in the recent selling of our home. From our first meeting with you, we knew your knowledge of the market would make the difference in our ability to obtain the highest valuation for our house. Within 24 hours of listing, we had more than 10 showings and a full price offer.”
I would highly recommend Gary Gentry and The Gentry Group. He is one of the top realtors in town and I have used his services to sell my old home, as well as buy my current home. He did a wonderful job and I appreciate his services, as well as the services of his team members.
