MEET GWEN

The Chinese philosopher Confucius said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”

As a full-time, award winning, Main Line Realtor ® for the past eight years, I have definitely found the perfect job. I have a passion for helping people whether they are buying or selling a home, and my clients will tell you that I’m driven to insure you achieve the greatest possible satisfaction from every real estate transaction.

We cannot thank you enough for your unflappable, personable, and utterly professional presence during our recent home purchase…you proved to be an agile facilitator no matter how many curves were thrown. You helped us navigate through multiple offers, a record-setting snowstorm, and even the loss of my family member all with great humor, compassion, and the most tireless work ethic….. we always felt you were one step ahead of everyone else. We were looking for a great realtor, but we had not expected to make such a great friend.”

After graduating from college, I spent 25 years honing my business skills in corporate America. I learned strong negotiating skills, and how to deliver outstanding customer service with an emphasis on high attention to detail and cultivating long-lasting client relationships. Today, I combine those abilities together with a concierge-style level of integrity, enthusiasm, and a genuine commitment to providing you with unsurpassed service.

My husband and I are both business people and it was obvious to us that Gwen had a far broader background than just real estate…Her negotiation skills on behalf of her clients are second to none – there is no stopping her, a shark with a very classy (and ethical) bite! –Fran and Maria Cassidy

What also sets me apart from other agents are some other skills that those Fortune 500 companies don’t teach, such as how to climb into a kitchen window head-first in heels when the seller forgets to leave a key in the lockbox.  Or, the time I wrote an offer on Thursday and settled the following Saturday so my buyer wouldn’t lose the house to another offer.

Gwen proved to be a top notch professional, guiding us every step of the way, giving good counsel whenever we asked for it, and notably anticipating what questions I had forgotten to ask. Gwen provided incredible attention to every detail. But above all, her cheery personality, warm, personalized assistance and friendship made the difficult process of finding our new home a bearable experience…especially when negotiations got tough.”

Professional home staging has become an essential marketing tool to promote a home in today’s real estate marketplace. I use this tool often and with great success. For a minimal investment I can increase the perceived value of a home dramatically, that’s why I carefully stage my listings so they’ll appeal to the ‘most likely buyers’ of each home. Ask me about my staged listings that sold in 24 and 48 hours.

I was shocked when we got three offers in one day, but I shouldn’t have been since you are an expert at marketing a home. The pricing was right and your marketing materials were gorgeous. By the way, my mother’s home never looked better on the day of the Open House! –  Rose Abbonizio

And, of course, social media has become an indispensible resource for real estate agents and their clients.  Look for me on Trulia®, Zillow®, Realtor.com®, Facebook® and Twitter® where I prominently feature my listings. Occasionally you’ll even find my blog postings in the widely-read Philly.Com® Neighbors section.

I’m a Realtor® because I love what I do.  I’m eager to help you with your Main Line real estate needs, so send me an email, or call 610 207-3995.
