"He is an agent that is professional, knowledgeable, and honest."
"This is my third real estate transaction with Gary, and what can I say? He is simply the best. We met at a fundraiser and ended up sharing about our love of old houses. After that, I knew he was the realtor for me. My needs at that time were for a very specific and unique old house. He found it. The process was tricky, but we got the house. His experience, skill, and knowledge of the market really made that deal come together. It's a story we have shared with friends for many years now. I have enjoyed many happy years in that house and have many memories. But in 2020, it came time to sell my charming home in the Rosegarden. I was sad but also scared to be doing a real estate transaction in the middle of a pandemic. I was so uncertain as to what I would be facing. But I did know that I wanted Gary on my team. I needed someone I could trust beside me. There were so many uncertainties with this one. But in the end, the house sold quickly and at the asking price. This was an emotional transaction for me. Gary was there for me and helped minimize my anxiety. I cannot rate him highly enough. He is an agent that is professional, knowledgeable, and honest. He is also an agent that cares about his clients, and it shows in how he represents them. He has many repeat clients, and it's not surprising to me. He is simply the best!"
"If you need a real estate agent, I highly recommend Gary Sassmannn!"
"We definitely would use Gary again as our real estate agent. We sold a house that we inherited and Gary was great throughout the sales process. He is very detailed oriented, communicates well and kept us updated as the sale progressed. We sold our San Jose home during the Pandemic. On our first meeting Gary ensured we followed the COVID-19 guidelines for social distancing. Once the house listed, Gary managed the home showing process and ensured that the buying agents were in compliance for COVIC-19 rules. The rules kept changing during the two weeks while the home was on the market and Gary ensured that the showing process was adjusted as needed to stay in compliance. Gary also created a virtual marketing package that included photos, video and 360 view of the rooms of the house; the marketing materials enabled prospective buyers to get a feel for the house without having to physically be at the house. In our initial conversation we discussed our goals for the sale and what we were willing and not willing to do to make the sale. We toured the house together and discussed the potential options and determined the associated boundaries. We agreed on a list of potential items that would be considered. Gary arranged for quotes from a contractor on the few items that we were considering; we discussed each item and made decisions on the associated cost and determined which items were worth doing (i.e. Cost/Benefit). Gary coordinated with the contractor to complete the items we decided to have done. Gary made setting the sales price as easy as it could be. He suggested a price range and shared all the available comps; I was able to use the comps to evaluate the range that Gary suggested. Gary also reached out to other realtors to get their thoughts on the asking price. Once we reviewed the data, we discussed the market, our approach and settled on our listing price. We ultimately accepted an offer which was $6,000 above the asking price; Gary was right on the money on setting a realistic price. We were very happy! We no longer lived in the area and Gary was great on handling the miscellaneous activities as they came up. Gary coordinated the home and termite inspections. He also followed up with the buying agent, title company and buyers mortgage company to ensure the transaction stayed on track. I really appreciated Gary’s help and he went above and beyond our expectations. If you need a real estate agent, I highly recommend Gary Sassmannn!"

"We always go back to him for a reason, he's really good."
"Gary had been our agent for 20 years. We always go back to him for a reason, he's really good. We have become friends over the 20 years, I totally trust him to have our back! Gary had a great eye, he will keep on track if I get distracted. I really value his sense of design, and attention to detail. He's honest and a lot of fun to hang out with, it took us a long time to find our dream house. We started teasing him, telling him we weren't really wanting to buy, just wanted to hang out! Highly recommended! Call Gary, tell him hello from Jeff & Joan."
"He is professional, knowledgeable, honest, and personable."
"My husband and I used Gary to sell our home. He worked with us throughout the entire process, from preparing our house to sell to signing papers at the end. He is professional, knowledgeable, honest, and personable. He sees the potential of every home, Gary and his team put everything together to make our house shine and the staging looked great! He is also very good at details. Details for preparing our home and from the contract. His passion for the business is evident and he's very easy to work with."

"He walks with you through the process as much as you require."
"I've worked with Gary Sassmann as my REALTOR® for both buying and selling. Gary listens closely to understand your priorities and your goals. He'll then give his opinion about what is realistic and what you might have to compromise on. He walks with you through the process as much as you require. I've used Gary twice myself, clearly happy with his work ethic and work style. I'd definitely recommend Gary, twice to my own family."

Lily | Buyer
"I cannot recommend him highly enough!"
"Gary is a terrific REALTOR® who really knows the area and has been in the business long enough to understand the home buying process from start to finish. I purchased my home at a time when there were multiple offers on every property I looked at, but he helped me connect to the seller and made my offer even more appealing than I could have done on my own. He also took the time to show me many properties, and got to know me as a person, and what it was that I was looking for in a home. Gary is also a kind and generous person, and this made all the difference for me. I cannot recommend him highly enough!"
