We were extremely happy to work with Gary on the sale of our home and purchase of a new home. He helped us maximize the value of the house, from staging to photos to the marketing which really helped us draw a lot of traffic. Gary was always continually working his network as well to ensure we had maximum exposure. He spent many hours talking with other agents to sell, not only our house, but the value of our neighborhood. Selling a basement home has its pros and cons. We knew it would take some time to find the right buyer. We’re happy to say through it all we had a great experience. Gary made the process of selling our house and buying our new one very easy.

Gary was wonderful to work with! He is professional, responsive, knowledgeable and worked hard to find the perfect fit for our family. His expertise and support made the process go smoothly. This was a stress-free experience and we are so glad to have worked with Gary- his is a walking example of 'above and beyond.' Thanks Gary!!

My husband met Gary a little over 1 year ago. As we were just moving into the area, Gary helped us with a rental home and we were able to secure a rental almost immediately. Just over a month ago we decided to stay in North Carolina, however we decided to buy. We contacted Gary immediately to help us through this process. Gary helped us tremendously from beginning to end. He knew everything we were looking for and delivered. As the market was picking up and housing prices were rising, Gary found an amazing home that was under new construction. We immediately went to see the home and we put in an offer that evening. Needless to say we closed on our new and beautiful home with trees June 19th, 2017. I cannot express how grateful we were to have someone such as Gary walking alongside us during this process. Gary's availability for questions at anytime, his professional knowledge, his response time, his drive, his persevering approach, and uncanny personality was an essential part of our relationship with him. We were extremely impressed with the level of service provided by Gary. It was beyond anything we could ask for, our hearts are beyond thankful. In fact we have referred several people to Gary, one of which closed with Gary on the same day as we did. We are so thankful to all of those involved at Fonville Morisey. We are extraordinarily grateful for the amazing help and unwavering services provided by Gary Penny. Many thanks, Jospeh & Jess

Gary is the most personable fun realtor you will work with. Gary will tell you upfront on the items to address to sell your house to ensure that you receive multiple offers at top dollar. I have known Gary for many years and he outshined every other big name realtor I have worked with. Gary also represented us in the building of our new home. He was our go between with the building company and always represented us to exceptional lengths to ensure we were represented properly. You can not go wrong with choosing Gary as your realtor!

Gary Penny helped my family sell and purchase a new home with ease. He helped us through the entire process with professionalism at every step. He even helped our 2 sons adjust during the selling process. Which made the transition so smooth. Gary was easy to talk to and answered all of our questions quickly at anytime of day. Gary Penny is tops in his field and our family would recommend him to any family buying/ selling in North Carolina!

Gary was recommended to us by a friend of a friend and we are so thankful that he was our realtor! We were moving to North Carolina from Arizona and knew nothing about the area. Gary worked with us long distance to understand our needs/preferences before we came out for a quick visit to find a place to rent. He was very patient and helpful while he walked us through what we could get at various price points and the best areas to meet our needs/wants in a home and community. When we came out for a quick two day visit, Gary showed us rental options and the various areas and their amenities. He really helped us get the lay of the land and eased my anxiety about moving across country! The morning of day two of our visit, we found out that our house in Arizona had sold and Gary was able to switch gears and help us find homes we could purchase. He talked us through all of our choices, made sure we were comfortable with everything and helped us work out exactly what we wanted and the best way to get there. In the end, we found the perfect house to buy and couldn't be happier! Gary made the buying process easier than we have ever experienced previously! Best of all, Gary did not just sell us a house and then drop out of sight. He has helped us settle in by giving us recommendations on the best places to eat, things to do with our kids, people to hire for various house projects and he found us a great dog to adopt! Gary is amazing and we are so grateful for his kindness, patience, and assistance.

Gary was recommended to us to help sell my moms property to provide for her care. It was a very sensitive, sad time, and Gary was compassionate kind and professional through every step. The help, education, advice and counsel he gave was invaluable, essential and considerate of our needs. The timing was sensitive and Gary worked hard to secure buyers. He was always very responsive, open and honest, calling to clarify data, and keeping us updated on progress at all times. He secured a buyer in the time we needed. I'd recommend him to anyone. Great job, and thank you Gary for helping us during this difficult time.

We would highly recommend Gary as a real estate agent. He is incredibly responsive, professional, tenacious, and thorough. He knows the market inside and out; he walked us through what to expect and was patient and very responsive when answering all of our follow-up questions. He helped us understand exactly what to pay attention to when looking at different properties and he had our best interests in mind at all times. He took care of the entire process – finding the right home, getting the right inspectors, following up on the repairs done in the house after inspection, and helping us understand the real estate process in NC. Even after we got the keys, Gary has been in touch and provided guidance or information we needed. He is an invaluable source of knowledge and advice and he truly went beyond our expectations. We are very happy with our new home and we would recommend Gary without hesitation.

Gary helped my family find our first home in NC. He went out of his way to help us with showings and after a short time, he knew our tastes and found the perfect house for us! He was very knowledgeable about the area and was a valuable resource. He was on top of all the paperwork and negotiating and everything ran smoothly from showings to closing. I always felt he had my family's best interest in mind and I can't imagine working with anyone else. I would highly recommend Gary and if I'm ever in the market again, he is the first person I'm going to.

Gary Penny is the best!!!! Whether you want to buy, rent, or rent out property, I recommend him. He`s persistent and kept me up to date the second he knew something.
My name is Nicole, I am a recent client of Gary Penny. Myself and my family have recently relocated from Puerto Rico to Raleigh with the help of Gary Penny.
My husband and I decided that we wanted to move to the States from Puerto Rico last September but were unsure of where we wanted to wind up.
We looked into a few different States and decided on Florida. I began searching the Internet for a home in the area we wanted to settle in. We found a nice house in a good neighborhood but something didn`t feel right. I decided to look into North Carolina. I made a few phone calls and left a couple of voicemail messages but still was unsure. We decided to stick to Florida. Then I got a call, one of those messages I left was with Gary Penny. It took 20 seconds to realize he was a native New Yorker (like me) and within 2 minutes I realized that North Carolina is indeed where we belong. Gary and I clicked right away and then he made a plan for us. He listened to what we wanted and then began sending me listings that he thought could fit our long list of wants.
I told Gary that I was interested in moving during the end of December (this was in September). Most Realtors would have told me to keep browsing and give them a call a few weeks before I was ready to relocate, but not Gary. Next he mailed me a relocation package. He mapped out areas that he thought would be best for my family based on what I told him our desires were in a neighborhood. He wanted me to see what the market had to offer and do homework on the areas I chose to make sure it was the perfect fit.
Every single day twice a day I got emails from Gary of the listings he personally pulled that might fit my needs. If I had a question Gary answered my phone call, no matter where he was or what he was doing. One call happened to be while he was taking his family to South Carolina for his daughters softball tournament. One call was while he was out shopping. Sometimes Gary called from his home office. The point is, Gary made us feel like a part of his family, not just a job that he would handle during normal business hours. He took us under his wing and always, always went the extra mile to make sure we were taken care of.
Now that our move date was nearing we had to start weeding through the listings and find our house. Did I mention we moved here sight unseen? Yes, we trusted in Gary and felt completely comfortable in knowing that everything would be alright, after all we had Gary on our side. Gary was always willing to take a drive out to a property if I mentioned it was on our maybe list. On Christmas Eve Gary took time out of his family celebrations to drive over to a property and make a video for us to see. We found a house shortly after that and secured it, with Garys help.
On moving day I boarded a plane and Gary met us at the airport to give us the keys and even showed up with treats for our daughter.
It has been a month since we moved to Raleigh and we still hear from Gary on a regular basis. He is always looking out for us and checks in to see if there is anything we need help with. Not only is Gary our Realtor, he is our friend and we are so happy to have had the privilege to work with him.
Next winter we will be purchasing a home and of course will be working with Gary to find our perfect home purchase.
Please feel free to include our contact info for references, we have nothing but good things to say about our experience with Gary Penny.
Thank you so much Gary you`re the best!
