"Gaby's financial savvy and knowledge of the market were a comfort to my husband and me, and they also gave us an edge over competing bidders and their agents. Gaby was aggressive yet fair in her negotiations. Ultimately, her experience and tenacity won us the house we wanted; our offer was accepted (over others) after the house had shown for a matter of mere hours."
"My wife and I are so lucky to have had Gaby [as our realtor] – it took time, but she found us exactly what we wanted (and we have very specific tastes) in the neighborhood we wanted with a price significantly under our budget. At the same time, she helped us sell our old house for a profit that was almost vulgar in size. I couldn’t be happier."
“My husband and I used Gabriela for the recent sale of our home. Gaby was very professional and extremely responsive. She is extremely knowledgeable of the Nashville market, and was able to help us successfully navigate the sale process. We really appreciate all of the help and support she gave us. I would recommend Gaby for all of your real estate needs, as a buyer or a seller.”
“Gaby worked with my family and I as we moved to the Nashville area, she was great in working with us to understand the different areas of Williamson County, the intricacies of the local market, and was instrumental in helping us close on our new home. – I would highly recommend working with Gaby for anyone who is looking for a new home.”
“It was such a joy working with Gaby to purchase my new home. She was readily available every step of the way, making the process quite seamless. Her attentiveness to detail and to her clients is unparalleled. I have no doubt her strong market knowledge and strategic thinking were paramount to securing the perfect house for me. She works with integrity and goes above and beyond to ensure her clients are happy.”
"Ms. Lira was extremely professional and worked many hours to help us find a home. After a home was chosen, her professionalism shined. She was very helpful through all parts of the process and helped with all the glitches with the seller. We have worked with many real estate agents across the country but Gabriela definitely knew the process and kept us on track toward the purchase. We appreciate all that she did and the long hours required to get us to closing. She has an excellent knowledge of the industry and I highly recommend her."
