Gary Gianakis - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Gary.

Gary was referred to us by a family friend who also had nothing but positive things to say about him. He was extremely kind, patient, supportive and went above and beyond. He helped my older, partial English speaking parents through the process with patience and the utmost respect. From day one he took off running and on the first day we met We viewed close to 8 homes thus finding the new forever home. He took the time and really listened to what my parents said they needed and wanted and he found it for them. Through the entire process, he communicated and walk me through the process. He went above his duties as a realtor by obtaining permits/information from the town without me asking. He also obtained the maps to assure my parent’s new home wasn’t in a flood zone since that was one of their concerns. He was able to “go with the flow” despite some minor issues or wrenches throw in the middle. Our attorney even had nice things to say about Gary. I highly recommend Gary he is knowledgeable, experienced and really a good person who wants what his clients want, it’s not just about making a commission.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the extraordinary service and professionalism that you provided to me in the process of selling my sister and brother-in-Law's home on Washington Drive in Watchung, NJ.

When I became executrix of both of their estates, I faced, among other challenges, the daunting task of preparing their home for sale and, of course, selling lt.l feel so fortunate that we became partners in this endeavor. Residing ln Southwest Virginia, I had to rely on you for all sorts of help and assistance, far exceeding service provided by a typical listing agent. Among the services you provided for which I am so grateful is helping remove furniture from the home, arranging for some special cleaning that was required, coordination numerous repairs and inspections and of course and most importantly, guiding me through the listing and selling process which resulted in helping me maximize the selling price in a reasonable length of time. I am sorry that f do not have contacts in the Green Brook TownshiplWatchung area to whom I could recommend you but please feel free to share this letter with any potential client. I have been involved in the buying or selling of about a dozen properties and you are far and away the best agent with whom I have worked. The stress of dealing with these estates has been overwhelming at times and your help and support has been invaluable.

"Gary helped us with the purchase of our townhouse. We were living out of state and looking for a house in an area that we had never lived in before. We got in contact with Gary before moving and very diligently he started to look for houses that fitted our criteria. Gary is very knowledgeable of the area and was able to identify several options that we visited as soon as we arrived. After visiting each house, he gave us his opinion on its strengths and weaknesses. In a very short time we decided for the townhouse that we bought. He helped us in the whole process from negotiating the price and conditions to the closing making the stressful process of purchasing a house very smooth. Gary kept in contact after we moved and help us to find some contractors for some home improvements. We are very thankful with Gary. He is very professional and easy to work with. We highly recommend him for any real estate transaction."

"September 2022I am so happy to recommend the realtor we used for both the purchase of our new home AND the sale of our existing home of 23 years! We met Gary Gianakis, from Weichert in Watchung NJ at an Open House my husband and I stopped in at. We were at the beginning point of searching for a new home at that time. Gary reached out to us as a follow up, and was so informative and had a very laid back yet thorough approach. We really felt we connected with him, and decided to begin our new home search. Gary was always researching properties that might fit our criteria, carefully refining the search as we shared our likes and dislikes. Gary was very helpful in doing thorough research on any property we liked, and filled us in on any information that we would need to know to help us decide if this house and neighborhood was for us. Once we found the one- we had no hesitation in choosing Gary to represent our current home to sell. He helped and guided us every step of the way, providing names of contractors or services we needed. His marketing package was very complete and professional. He was invaluable in helping us choose the buyer and getting through the closing process. I am happy to say we sold for quite a bit over our asking price as well! Gary made an exciting yet, difficult process manageable and comfortable. I hope you will choose Gary for your next purchase or sale, you’ll be happy you did!!"

"Education is the key for first time home buyers. And we are so glad we chose Gary to guide us through. Gary has many years of experience in Real Estate and his local neighborhood expertise is rich & vast. He is known as one of the most hard working agents amongst his peers and does thorough homework for his Clients before any showings as a Buyer or a Seller agent. There have been numerous instances when despite having a long 12-15 hours day, Gary has made himself available for a petty phone call. Not to forget the emails at 3AM preparing us for an Open House next day! The hardest thing for a Client is to find an agent who is trustworthy. Gary is truly professional, honest, culturally sensitive towards his Clients. Patience is his best virtue. He persisted with us through 18 months of thick and thin - changing Home buying specs, Budget & Job situations and finally COVID-19. Through our active and passive home search phases, Gary continued to do his due diligence to find the best home for us. His negotiation skills and experience helped us breeze through the offer and inspection process. He helped us through every step in our home buying process, start to finish .. and beyond!If you need an agent who will really go that extra mile, Gary is your man! Highly Recommended!!!"

"Gary is an excellent realtor! He helped us sell our unique, 5 bedroom house in Watchung recently. Gary is extremely proactive. He delivered all he promised, including outstanding pictures and video, fantastic information flyers, engaging open houses, and first rate advice on staging. He is a superior negotiator and supported us completely with respect to determining, setting and getting our full asking price. We have bought/sold 5 properties during our lifetime and Gary is the ONLY realtor that we would work with again."

"Gary went way beyond what most realtors would do. He was always available for any questions, he gave his honest opinion when I needed advice, he stayed engaged and focused, he even fixed a couple of things after a walkthru. He never pushed to sell, and he negotiated my offer to buy successfully. Gary stayed involved during home inspection and provided great advice re. home maintenance. Having Gary as my realtor was like having a best friend with the expertise!"
