Now that the craziness of moving in has slowed down a bit, lord knows it hasn't stopped, I just wanted to take some time to thank our wonderful realtors Gina Buckley Gilliam and Pam Kastl. You guys were great! You made our first time home buying relatively easy and, I believe, a little less stressful. I would definitely refer you guys to anyone I know and will, in the future, work with y'all again. We cannot thank you both enough for your hard work and tenacity and steering us the right way. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Hya Prevette of Sanford

Gina and Pam are besides the most amazing people, super talented and super helpful. Buying our dream house would have never gone through without them. Seriously!! They were our eyes, our voice and our patience when going through the process of buying our dream house from out of state. Since day one, when we contacted them, there was an immediate personalized response. Not an automated response with a "We will call you as soon as possible". The opportunities came and they helped us find the right one for us. They both sensed our likes and kept presenting us with options that suited our likes. Nonetheless, while going through the closing process they were our most faithful supporters. Awesome experience. Thank you so very much!!!

Vivianna D. of Cary

Gina Gilliam is an experienced professional realtor. She worked tirelessly with me and my husband to help us find the perfect house. She was very involved with every step of the process from negotiating the offer, to the inspection and other requirements for closing, even helping guide us through the financing and loan. I highly recommend her and her team and would most certainly use her again.

Shelley B. of Apex

I worked with the pair of Gina and Pam in 2014 to buy a house. At the time I didn't know much about the houses or surrounding areas and they definitely helped guide us as to where would be our best fit. I interviewed a few other realtors and when interviewing the pair I immediately felt comfortable with them. This is our first home so we were very new to the whole process but Gina broke down everything for us, explained everything very easily, and assured us the perfect home is out there. I actually enjoyed house hunting with them and they did a remarkable job preparing negotiations for us. When we would go into each home they both would point out things that I didn't even see or told us things to be aware of (which steered us away from a few homes). I'm so thankful that they were so honest and trustworthy. They really look out for you (their client). After buying our home we have stayed in touch with them and they will forever be friends of ours. If ever we decide to move, hands down we would choose them again!

Sara K. of Angier

Gina and her team have represented me in three real estate transactions in the last 7 years. I couldn't have found a more qualified, knowledgable and friendly person to work with for such a huge undertaking. She points out things you won't necessarily see or think about and works with you tirelessly to find what you really want. Gina, Pam and the rest of the Gilliam and Associates team are highly recommended!

Sean B. of Fuquay Varina

Gina and Pam helped us sell and buy a new home last year. Gina and Pam were always professional, caring and responsive. We had numerous issues with the sellers and the house we were purchasing... The ladies did an outstanding job communicating our reservations to the seller's agent. It all ended well and we love our new home!
I have since referred them out to several local friends. If you want a hands on, kind, professional and always available realtor then Gina and Pam are for you!
These two are dear friends for life !!

Julie D. of Apex

Gina helped my husband and I find a new home and sell our old one as well. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. She (and her colleague Pam) went the extra mile to help us find a house quickly. We were expecting our first child and needed more space and they helped us at all times of the day to make it happen. She is an expert in her field. She could think about many things in terms of resale, upkeep, maintenance, etc. that we were not always aware of which was very helpful. I would highly recommend Gina to anyone in the area looking for a personable and professional real estate experience.

Abby P. of Cary

Gina is amazing! She has worked with my family for over 23 years. She has helped us to buy 4 homes and sell 3 of them. She is very professional, honest, reliable, easy to get a hold of, very patience and understanding. Also, Gina is very knowledgable of the local real estate. I would highly recommend her!!

Jodi C. of Holly Springs

I met Gina 12 years ago through another neighbor that Gina had helped them to find their dream home. (Turns out she had helped them several times with buying and selling.) Gina is the type of person that once you meet her, she is a friend for life. She truly cares about the people she meets and the people she does business with. We were looking for a very specific type of home and Gina never gave up. She found us what we were looking for. We were quite pleased with the selling price of our home and Gina's creative ways to get showings at a time when the market was not great. She was diligent and negotiated a great price for our home and we were very pleased with her advice. We couldn't be more happy with the home Gina found for us. She knows the market and the area and is very honest with her advice and recommendations. She is a delight to work with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

Christine E. of Cary

I've worked with Gina for more than 20 years and not only is she professional and knowledgable, she's a joy to work with--personable, funny and unflappable. She has a true knack for getting the job done and expertly handling whatever kink may come up in the whirlwind industry of real estate. Highly recommend!

Christa G. of Apex

I have worked with Gina in a couple of different capacities -- she represented my wife and I in a purchase transaction and I have been a teammate of hers as a Mortgage Loan Officer in many transactions. Gina is extremely personable, accessible and knowledgeable. She is very easy to get along with and really, really cares about taking care of her Clients. I've worked with many Realtors throughout my career and will say that Gina is one of the best!

Scott Wittig of Apex

We hired Gilliam & Associates to sell our home in Cary after seeing their stellar reviews on Facebook groups. This was our first time selling a home and they were just the kind of realtors that we needed, very hands on.They were very responsive, respectful, professional, and helpful. In the end we took our home off the market after less than a week (even though we had an offer by the 2nd day) because we decided to stay in our lovely home for now :) We felt bad for wasting their time but they were gracious and happy for us. We will certainly use them whenever we do decide to sell again.

Rachel S. of Cary

Was nothing but a delight to work with! We were purchasing a home in Cary NC for family members, but we live in New York. She made it so easy to find and select a home. She gave honest descriptions and evaluations of different properties as well as shot numerous videos of various houses. We are currently in the process of looking for an additional home in Cary and we are using her services again.

Lori Ann N. (Cary)

Gina is a delight to work with. Her expertise and professionalism are second to none. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs help selling or buying a home. She goes the extra mile to advocate for her clients' wants and needs. She's knowledgeable about every minute detail of the real estate industry, and responds quickly to her clients' questions and concerns. Truly a gem!!

Lauren C. of Holly Springs

I was blown away by how quickly you ladies SOLD our home AND got us the price we wanted!!! We absolutely could not have asked for a better first home selling experience!!

Ashley H. of Raleigh

Thank you Gina Buckley Gilliam & Pam Kastl for ALL your hard work on getting our house closed today! Anyone can close an "easy" house... but we would NEVER have closed without everything you did to compensate for an unreliable (to be tactful) seller's agent, the help navigating some *interesting* approaches to repairs planned by the seller's contractor, and the multitude of other things. I especially appreciated your pointing out the rotten/disintegrating siding that I wouldn't have noticed, and your ability to explain to that contractor exactly *why* you can't just attach a freestanding shed to the house with shingles and boards, in lieu of actually fixing the rotting siding. And it was awesome how you took pictures and kept me informed while I was traveling all last week. It's been a wild ride, but we finally got the house! Thank you SO MUCH!!

Venita B. of Apex

Outstanding Sales Agent. Smart and Professional with a great knowledge of the marketplace!

Quint C. (Cary)

The amount of dedication, knowledge and professionalism that Pam demonstrated throughout our home selling/buying process was outstanding. She was with us every step of the way and knew the business inside and out. Not only did she help sell our previous home after 1 showing, she also helped us find and finalize the contract on our current home in less than a week. I will never buy or sell another house without Pam again and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Real Estate Professional.

Sandy C. of Cary

When my husband and I decided to sell our home, Gina came in and took charge. She helped us with great ideas about how to stage our home in order to make the most of every room. She took beautiful pictures and made the listing read and view in a way that just drew in potential buyers. We immediately had interest and multiple showings. Gina and her associates were very professional and responsive. I will definitely list with them again should the need arise!

Pam provided excellent guidance on preparing our house for sale (it sold in 1 day!) and led us assertively through several rounds of negotiation with the buyer. She was always available to answer questions, no matter how we contacted her - email, text, or phone. Pam is straightforward yet diplomatic with her advice, even if it's contrary to her client's thinking (Listen to her! She knows what she's talking about!). She clearly considers her client's best interests and takes actions based on positive outcomes for them. We thoroughly enjoyed the relationship we established with Pam and highly recommend her services!

Jeff C. of Cary

We've bought several investment properties through Gina in recent years, and have been thoroughly pleased each time. The last purchase probably showcases Gina's abilities the best. During the due diligence period, the inspector found some "interesting" results - like the fireplace had insulation, duct tape, and styrofoam shoved up into the bottom of the chimney. So, as part of our due diligence requests, we asked for the fireplace to be fixed, and to pass inspection by a fireplace specialist; it was obvious something was wrong with the fireplace. I'm not quite sure whether the listing agent didn't pass things along to the seller or what; nothing was done by the sellers or listing agent. Gina ended up scheduling a fireplace inspection on behalf of the seller, the day before we were scheduled to close... the inspection found that there were major issues and the fireplace completely needed replaced, and surrounding wood rot replaced. Closing was postponed while the seller repaired the issues... during which time Gina was wonderful about talking to the town permit department to ensure that some 'questionable' choices their contractor wanted to make weren't permissible, talked repeatedly with the contractor, and frequently visited the site and sent me pictures when I had to be out of town for a week before the (rescheduled) closing. She *definitely* went above and beyond to ensure that the repairs were done to my standards (and legally!), and ended up communicating frequently with the sellers, after they reached out to her directly due to the unresponsiveness of their listing agent. If it wasn't for Gina and her team going the extra mile to ensure that things were addressed, the purchase would NEVER have closed. Gina is certainly good at the smooth, easy closings... but it's the times when you really need someone to go to bat for you and represent YOUR interests, even if you're out of town, that she's priceless!!!We've bought several investment properties through Gina in recent years, and have been thoroughly pleased each time.

Gina has sold and help me buy several houses over the last 20 years. We met each other as agents at Better Homes and Gardens-Howard Perry and Walston. We worked together for several years and became good friends. Because of that friendship and knowledge of Gina's business skills, I chose to use her to sell my house in Raleigh and buy one in Fuquay-Varina. About 10 years later, I had her help me purchase another home in Fuquay-Varina. Gina has the patience to deal with a former real estate agent with lots of opinions and needs. She also shared her experience over the last 20 years to guide me in purchasing a home in Fuquay. Whenever I sell or buy another home, Gina will be my Realtor of choice. She would make an excellent Realtor for anyone selling or buying a home in the Triangle area!

Brenda M. of Apex

My husband and I were looking for a place to call home - Gina Gilliam and her team were very helpful in helping us find what we were looking for. Gina made the experience fun and easy - she is extremely good at what she does! We must have looked at 50 different homes if not more and she never once seemed irritated with this picky first time home buyer. She was always upbeat and ready to help. I could really tell that selling homes and helping people find their dream home is her passion. I would recommend her and the team a millions times over to everyone I know! Thanks Gina for all your help!

Jenna M. of Cary

Me and my wife used Gilliam & Associates realty when we decided to purchase our very first home. Gina was very helpful because it was the first time we ever bought a home. So of course we had many questions. Gina was very patient with us and helped us figure what was best for us. She never pressured us into anything. I would say this is the best realty company in the Triangle. We had dealt with others before they did not take the time and made us feel not welcomed, This made us put off purchasing a home. Until we found Gilliam & Associates. Gina made us feel like a part of the family. Even after we looked at 10 houses and decided against buying. Gina took a positive attitude and asked us not to give up. She explained the process was not easy but she knew she could find something for us. She kept working and searching for what we were looking for. She was determined to find us a home and she did not relent until we found that one perfect home. She finally mustered up a home in our price range and the location we were looking for. I will always thank her for her great customer service and professionalism. Gina is genuine and did not make us feel nervous or pressured us at anytime. This is the type of service that I look for, The human experience and Gina and the rest of Gilliam & Associates provide this to us. I can honestly say other realty companies should try to be more like Gilliam & associates. I will also like to mention I own a Home!!

Daniel C. of Raleigh

Closed on my first home today and I just want to thank Gina Buckley Gilliam and Pam Kastl for being SO amazing and helping me through the entire process. Gina and Pam really know their stuff and made such a convoluted process easy! They were right on top of everything every step of the way. They even remembered a lot of the little things and details that I would have let slip through the cracks. I highly recommend Gina and Pam to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. Thanks!!!

Kevin D. of Cary

"My husband and I used Gina Gilliam many years ago, when we sold our last home and purchased our home we live in now. She was a amazing and helped us throughout the whole process. She is one of the reason's I got into real estate. If you want great service and knowledge of the business...Do not hesitate to call Gina!

Heather K. of Cary

I have known Pam for over 20 years, I employed Pam as my agent to assist inthe purchase of my home when I relocated to North Carolina. I found her to be completely professional and effective in all aspects of the transaction. I believe I can recommend her to any one considering purchasing or selling a home as I was a real estate agent for over 20 years and am familiar with the personality traits that make a good agent. Pam is the type of person who truly listens and hears the needs and desires of her clients. She is also very detail oriented any does not skip over any detail no matter how small.

Sarah W. of Fuquay Varina

Gina brought energy and enthusiasm to our complicated sale. She left us feeling confident. She spoke frankly and offered great suggestions on how to best stage our home for that important first impression. She made herself available, patiently answered our questions, and took care of Everything. We completely recommend her.
