James Gillen

    • To whom it may concern, I want to thank James Gillen and the team Liberty Way Realty for all the help and guidance for first time home owners. My Wife and I had been looking to move out of rent al properties and buy our very first home. We had reached out to Liberty Way and were grateful to speak to James Gillen. James and everyone at Liberty Way were very understanding and helpful to newlywed and expecting parents. They turned a daunting task of finding the "Perfect" place to start our little family into a very relaxing and straight forward process. They had us come into their office and explain our budget, must haves, wants and would be nice options in the prospected homes. Next thing we were getting personal calls explaining homes in the prospected areas that were available. Liberty Way went out to these homes and looked at them prior to us even seeing them and were able to give us a great overview of the home even before we arrived. We were very grateful for this personalized experience as getting ready jump into a first home is a life achievement. Liberty Way had made us feel as we were their only customers being able to accommodate our schedules and demands. I want to personally thank each and everyone of you at Liberty Way Realty for making the first time home buying experience as exciting as it is

    • We have worked with James Gillen of Liberty Way Realty for a number of years. First, we purchased a home for our son and most recently sold a house using his services. We found Mr. Gillen to be very professional and someone that we could trust 100%. Purchasing or selling a home can be very personal and Mr. Gillen was always calm and knowledgeable regarding any questions we had.

    • Responsive. Always seemed willing to work hard and find all possible solutions to find buyer. Became very active when buyers showed interest. Took more professional pictures and added Drone pictures to fully show the house. Pulled full comps to homes in the area.

    • James was wonderful to work with. From the moment we listed our property he made sure photos were professionally taken, created flyers, & we had showings in less than 24 hours, our property went highest and best in 4 days! Closing was smooth sailing with James! Any time we had a question he would respond promptly. Highly recommend James for any real estate needs! Thanks again for making this process painless and easy!

      - Heather Strobel
    • From the beginning to the very end the Gillen Team was with us every step of the way. They were very informative, and were able to get us the best deal possible. The team was able to negotiate our closing costs and provide us with a great amount of seller's concessions! I would highly recommend the Gillen team to anyone looking to buy and or sell a home. There's no one better!

    • James & Sherry, What can I say but your the best. I'm an investor and it's so important for me to buy a property and get it rehabbed and sold as quickly as possible. Most important thing is pricing. Sherry's expertise in assessing value is invaluable. First of all before I purchase a property I consult with Sherry on resale market value. This greatly helps me make a decision to purchase property. Then I get the master James Gillen to assist me on what a perspective buyers needs are for my property. Following his input and marketing has helped sell my properties as quickly as possible. OF course I can't forget getting to the closing table is effortless on my part. Thank you for all your hard work Ron.

    • My experience with Liberty Way Realty was great from start to finish. They understood exactly what I wanted and helped me find the perfect renters. I was always able to get in touch with them and they answered every question I had with detail. They had a ton of knowledge of other rentals in the area and of rental properties in general. As a first time seller, they made sure I understood the entire process of the deal. They had a great way of explaining what makes a great tenant and what we would be looking for. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to lease their home!
