Gary is amazing and extremely knowledgeable. I have worked with Gary twice, once in 2009 to buy a property where I got a very good deal and now to sell the same property. Even though it took a bit longer than expected for the property sell, and the listing price had to be revised 6% below the original, Gary's market insights and his adaptability to the market conditions got us a deal before it was too late. Gary has very quick turn around for any communication. He explained things very clearly and laid out all of my options every step of the way. But ultimately lets me decide without any pressure. I would work with Gary again for any real estate needs in the Seattle area.

Gary worked diligently on behalf of my best interest. Through him I was able to get a very good deal on the property as well as the mortgage. I would highly recommend Gary to my friends and family.

It took a lot longer to sell my condo than both Gary and I had expected and in the end I had to settle for an offer 9% below the initial listing price. I am living abroad so it would have been easy to feel left out of the process. However, Gary was working hard throughout the entire process and made sure I was informed at all times about the number of showings, feedback etc., which made me feel more comfortable.

Gary did a great job in showing me available condos. During the purchase process, when an issue arose he had almost always handled it and resolved the issue before I knew about it. It was very stress-free to work with Gary.

Not only is Gary DeRosa an exceptional human being, but he's an exceptional realtor--I think they go hand in hand. This is the second home he's worked on for us and he also found and sold a home to our daughter and son-in-law. All of these transpired over a six year period. It is one thing to deal with a realtor once. It says a lot to seek him out a second time as well as to recommend him to others. His excels in every aspect. I they sellers' agents also appreciate working with him. We have certainly been able to sit back and relax, knowing he is handling every detail on our behalf.

Gary De Rosa was fantastic. We were so pleased with his service which was prompt,thorough and knowledgable that we had our daughter and her partner work with him and their selection and purchase of a house went through just before ours was completed. You have a magnificent individual working for you. He is, as far as we were concerned, the ideal real estate agent, one who knows his job, is proud of the organization he works for and what it offers, but is in no way pushy or opionated in a way that detracts from the mission at hand. He was patient when we wanted to counter and always was at the ready to be helpful in multiple ways. We can't praise him highly enough. We felt as though we'd found a friend as well as a real estate agent. I'm sure he works as hard for everyone as he did for us. Believe me, you have a real treasure in Gary De Rosa.

Having gone with a difficult divorce, Gary has always been very supportive and honest with me throughout my transaction. He was polite, and always there when I call or email. He gave 101% of his time, always reliable and was not pushy. He was even phoning me on his vacation to make sure I have answers to my question. It has been a pleasure working with him and will not forget everything he has done for us.

This is my second time working with Gary, first as a buyer and now as a seller. He always explains my options thoroughly, which enables me to make the best decision based on knowledge and not emotion. His strategies for selling the home, with regard to pricing and review of offers, ensured a quick yet highly profitable sale. Gary kept me informed of all activities throughout the sale process. I felt supported each step of the way and never pressured to make a hasty decision. I would strongly recommend Gary for your real estate needs.

I have a beautiful new condo,thanks to Gary. I had a non-negotiable list and a wish list and I got everything on both. Gary was very comfortable to work with and I felt very confident in his abilities. He negotiated a very fair price for exactly what I wanted. Gary was never pushy and that's a big plus for me. I have already recommended him as a realtor to another person. If the occasion arises again, I'll keep recommending him.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gary to any family or friends. He is so easy to work with, very competent and caring. No pressure tactics! He has helped me make two different home purchases and one home sale in the past 8.5 years. He found the home that my family and I currently live in, stood tough and negotiated a better deal for me, and we are very happy here. Thank you again for everything, Gary!

Gary has been a tremendous help in the past 8 years for both buying and selling homes. He is always pleasant and professional, is very competent in getting things done, and responds in a timely manner for various issues. He has always freely shared his knowledge and puts the customer first. I really appreciate his high level of service!

My family and i worked with many different Agents before but we like Gary the most. He was the guy that I/our family were looking for. He is reliable and he is a very trust able guy. What i like the most about him is that he let you do your own thing once he bring you to the house. He will answers your questions and will ask you "what do you think at the end". unlike other agents where they just want to get their commission and always pushing you and saying nice things about the house you are looking at. again i don't have any problem working Gary and totally recommended to everyone. thanks again Gary.

Gary is an AWESOME agent! I had been toying with the idea of buying a home for a while but felt overwhelmed and intimidated by the entire process. I first meet with Gary for an overview of the process; he was so knowledgeable and had many references and ideas to help me find “The One.” After the meeting with Gary I couldn’t wait to start my search. Without fail, Gary was available via email and phone to answer questions big and small, to check in, checking my availability to go see properties and through every moment until I got my keys in hand. I am very indecisive and I appreciate how patient Gary was with me. He was a great advocate in looking at the big picture and not just the surface. He never steered me in the wrong direction or pressured me into anything I wasn’t ready for. He always made me feel like he was just as invested in the process as I was and gave me a feel of comfort and security from search to purchase. Thanks Gary!!

We worked with Gary to find and purchase a new house in Seattle. Although our requirements were a little vague at first, I think Gary's experience helped us focus fairly quickly. Ulitmately, we purchased a property in Denny Triangle after considering several neighborhoods. One thing I really appreciate about Gary is that he didn't use any pressure or manipulation tactics to try and push us into something we weren't ready for. When we settled on the property we wanted, I feel that Gary represented us well. I'm satisfied that we got the best deal that was available on the property we wanted. Gary was consistently available to us by phone or in person for anything we needed to facilitate the property search and purchase. From start to finish, it took about a month, which is fast for us. We are not the types to make quick decisions on big items like home purchases.

We had a fairly proscribed list of properties we wanted to look at; Gary was skilled at finding out which listings might or might not fit. He was always helpful, never pressured us. This was our seventh purchase of a home; it was the first time we really felt a realtor was there to serve our wishes instead of to sell us something. I can't imagine you could do better.

We sincerely appreciated all of his extra effort and attention.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Gary! He was extremely helpful & thorough in all aspects of the transaction, with immediate responses to all of our inquiries and/or concerns. The buyer's agent was impressed with Gary as well, considering him top notch to work with. In addition to the realtors involved, Gary's recommended loan officer was awesome as well! All made for a smooth & timely long distance relocation. We wish to thank Gary DeRosa along with Zip Realty, have already recommended them both for exceptional service & will continue to do so!

My wife and I were out of town buyers with no urgency to purchase. Gary DeRosa was always available to show us homes we found through the internet. However, he never pressured us to make a hasty decision. As we narrowed our decision he helped us through a aborted short sale and ultimately helped us close on our new home in Snoqualmie Ridge. His assistance was invaluable. Carlo and Marcia Spani

Gary was very patient during our 2 month search for a home. But the most outstanding service he provided was during the last week of closing. My husband and I wanted to wait on the results of the Stimulus Bill; which would have given us a $15,000 tax credit. But we had to close by Friday the following week. Gary had an idea for a "wait and see" addendum in our purchase agreement. Which not only satisfied our needs but the needs of the seller. Gary was able to accomplish this in about a 24 hour period. Once it was clear that the tax credit was not going to occur, we contacted Gary on Wednesday to close on Friday (in two days). He was able to arrange everything so we received the keys Friday afternoon. GREAT WORK. He is an outstanding agent who was very attentive to our needs. The referrals for the loan and the escrow service also gave us a great rate and great service. Thanks again. And we will refer Gary DeRosa and ZipRealty to anyone who is looking for a home to buy.

He also has a very calming presence about him -- a welcome energy in what could have otherwise been a very stressful experience. But Gary made it fun and personal. He is very knowledgable and shares what he knows in a respectful way. We could not say enough good things about him. I would recommend him to anybody looking to buy a home.

From the start, Gary was "just there" waiting patiently for the time to be right for us, to go ahead and purchase a home. There were circumstances beyond our control that made it difficult initially, as we knew we were headed to WA state but just had to find out when. Gary never pushed us, but just waited patiently for the timing to be right. The biggest positive too, was that Gary communicated with us with weekly updates and just said to let him know if or when we were ready - no pressure but just assurance that he was there and ready for whenever we got the "green light." Gary has been a wondeful agent and I think that he would be an asset to any business !
