Recent Customer Testimonials

Jaye was very patient and understanding. My wife had been in talks with her for over a year before we seriously considered buying. Jaye never gave up, but also never pestered us until we were ready. When we finally decided to look at homes, Jaye was ready to go with a slew of properties to look at. She answered or returned every call and email. She returned to the property with us many times to help us answer additional questions. And she worked around our work schedules. Jaye was incredible.

5 starsMay 15, 2015 - Colin Yokomi and Mary Yokomi

April was an amazing agent to work with. She took the time to give us detailed information about every home we liked and ultimately led us to the best home for us. I could not imagine buying a home without her expertise and the support that Allison Ables gives.

5 starsMay 12, 2015 - Brian Goldman and Ana Acosta

We are new to the area and needed to find a condo. We like the Allison Ables website to easily search condos. We also personally went to Allison with a description of our needs and were assigned Jaye. Jaye understood our requirements and stuck to the plan. She was very responsive and helpful throughout.

5 starsMay 3, 2015 - Vincent J. Mosca and Karen M. Mosca

We are so happy to finally find a realtor who really understands our needs and goes above and beyond our expectations. Vincent spent a great deal of time finding us the right investment property. He listened to our needs and kept us informed throughout our entire process as buyers. His time, effort and professionalism is above any we have experienced in past purchases. Thank you Allison Ables for Vincent and his ability to be all that we expect from our realtor and more.

5 starsApril 29, 2015 - Chet Szydlowski and Julie Szydlowski

Shawn was awesome from the very beginning. He listened and took in what we wanted and provided plenty of excellent options. He was always available for viewing and advice. He provided honest and knowledgable opinions, and made us feel valued as customers. He was very trustworthy. We would highly recommend his services, and definitely work with him again in the future.

5 starsApril 25, 2015 - Jasenka Zubcevic

Linda Buck has been amazing to work with. She is so knowledgeable of the area we are looking to purchase a home in and is the nicest and most pleasant person I can imagine working with. We were in Gainesville area for 6 days and Linda did find us what we needed, but couldn't come with a price that we could afford with the seller. That's okay. WE are back in Ohio and still looking in the Gainesville area. Thank you Linda for the wonderful time we spent together searching for homes. WE will be back and I know we will buy something soon. The people at the Allison ables office are all so friendly and nice to be with. You have a wonderful team of people at your company. All of you have a wonderful day.

5 starsApril 17, 2015 - Marleah Clark

Jaye is amazing. She exemplifies why having a real estate agent by your side through a real estate transaction is vital. She made the process appear seamless, though I know behind the scenes she was pushing the pack along ensuring everything was completed in time for closing. She was supportive, honest, and understanding of my poor directional skills when going to properties. She is extremely confident yet approachable, which allowed me to be stress-free during the process. If you want an agent that can have a good laugh with you, but also get you the best home and deal possible for you, she's your agent.

5 starsApril 15, 2015 - Adrienne Danielle Smith

Me and my fiance thought our first time buying a home would be a long hard process, but April made it a great experience. We could not be more impressed with her guidance while looking at homes, helping us understand details of our loan, and how nice she was. I cannot think of any scenario where she could have made our purchase any better, aside from coming over sometime for dinner.

5 starsApril 3, 2015 - Kaitlyn L. Gemmell and Chad Thomas West

have bought and sold a number of residences over many years, in Chicago, New York, Ohio, and Colorado. Linda Buck is undoubtedly the best realtor I have ever worked with. She is amazing. She proved impeccably professional yet warm and personable, and oh so helpful. Had so many talents: a hard but fair bargainer, a careful listener, a sharp-eyed detective, organized, attention to every detail of the transaction. Always available and ready to find what I needed, before and after my purchase of the perfect home for me. She clearly loves what she does. She has recently arrived in the Gainesville area, from New Mexico, with an impressive background in home construction project management and years of realty. She knows most everything about a house and property and how to buy or sell. You will be lucky to work with this woman.

5 starsApril 1, 2015 - Cathy Jane Copley

Terry took the time to learn exactly what we were looking for and only showed us houses that met those criteria. A few times we really liked a house that would have foundation issues, or that was in too high of a price point, or did not meet all of our criteria and rather than try to get us to buy the house, Terry would remind us of what we were looking for and would tell us there will be more houses that are a better fit. Because of this we stayed with the seach and did find our perfect home! I really felt that we could trust Terry to look out for us.

5 starsMarch 26, 2015 - Lila L. Ressler and Christopher J. Whitehurst

I bought an amazing home, through Sandy Malone! She was everything I could have asked for in a realtor---informed, patient, conscientious and enthusiastic . The experience of buying a property can be very daunting. Sandy made me feel secure and comfortable in the process. On a scale of 10, I give her an 11 ! Thank you !

5 starsMarch 25, 2015 - Francoise Fontenay

Shawn worked with us to make sure we were in a home before our lease ended. Everything went so smoothly that we ended up closing on our new home a month ahead of schedule. If you have a tight timeline and are a first-time home buyer, Shawn is your man. Thank you, Shawn!

5 starsMarch 18, 2015 - Michael P. Campbell and Adrienne M. Campbell

I cannot say enough good things about our real estate agent Shawn Hicks from Allison Ables. He was our third buyer's agent we worked with and we are so glad we found him! As out of state buyers, we needed a commitment from someone to dedicate two whole days to show us homes and Shawn was willing to do that when others were not. He was happy to show us homes we had found doing our own research and also emailed us other listings we looked at too and was very helpful with answering our questions about the areas. He listened to what we wanted, read our whole emails, and was always polite, respectful, and understanding. Shawn was great at following up on things and keeping us in the loop with the various inspectors, agents, and companies we interacted with. He was very professional and diplomatic, even when dealing with some challenging and difficult situations and people. He always emailed and called us back right away and was very thorough and clear with all of the paperwork and communication. He also has a great personality, bought us lunch and coffee, and always found time for us with emergencies that came up. He seems to enjoy his work and is certainly good at it. I would highly recommend Shawn if you are looking for someone to make a stressful time calmer and who you can trust to do a good job from the search process all the way until closing.

5 starsMarch 5, 2015 - April

Conrad worked diligently to help us sell our property. His knowledge of the current state of the Gainesville real estate market and it's potential direction helped us make insightful decisions. His communication with us was invaluable and quite essential as we live 2,500 miles from Gainesville. He had our complete trust as he was our only eyes and ears during the entire process. He has my highest recommendation.

5 starsJanuary 7, 2015 - Claudia Cometa and Tony Cometa

Mary is very responsive and quickly helped us sell the property we had listed with her. She made what could have been a very stressful and extended process easy and quick. She is currently helping us find a condominium in the Gainesville area. She very quickly set up appointments to view several condos the area we are interested in. We expect to purchase one in the near future with Mary's help. I highly recommend her as a real estate agent.

5 starsJanuary 7, 2015 - David & Nancy Shaffer

5 starsNovember 29, 2014 - Belle Sutton

I appreciated using the Allison Ables website to get a snapshot of the area, for which I knew nothing, and research median prices and locations. Jaye Athy was an incredibly valuable resource in providing us with inside information only found from someone who knows the area and cares about the outcome for her clients.

5 starsNovember 25, 2014 - Richard Hubbard and Sandra Hubbard

5 starsOctober 30, 2014 - Bonnie Bond and Kevin Desautels

I really appreciated Shawn's knowledge of the real estate market and properties, and especially his honesty. It was more important to him to get me in the right property rather than just any property. Highly satisfied and will definitely use him again.

5 starsOctober 27, 2014 - Travis Green

I would like to thank Ruth Segal for all her efforts with: advice, locations, the culture of the area, and she also answered other questions that we had. Ruth also offered to give advice on every rental listing that we found. We would like the management staff to know how outstanding she was. She should be commended for her efforts. Ruth went above the call of duty to help us. Ruth is indeed an asset for your company. We will be sure to use Ruth when we decide to buy a home. We will also refer anyone we know to her. It was a breath of fresh air having someone so friendly help us.

5 starsOctober 17, 2014 - James Abrams

I am writing this letter to COMMEND my realtor, Mary Serena for a "JOB WELL DONE". My family had been looking for property for over a year in the Central Florida Area. Mary happened to be my third realtor during this time period since we experienced a significant lack of follow thru and commitment on the two other realtors behalf. I have to say that this was a very difficult process and Mary went above and beyond the norm, following up with us, providing her expertise and helping us in more ways than her job description "REALTOR" implied. I would recommend Mary for anyone who needs that extra touch because she is the one that will go that extra step for you. Thank You Again, Mary

5 starsOctober 9, 2014 - Viola Findlay

Jonathan's professionalism and knowledge of Gainesville real estate market was very helpful to me during the both the selling of my condo and the purchasing of a home. He prepared me for each step of the process. With his help, my condo sold within a week of listing. He brings a lot talent and experience to the process that made him a tremendous asset. If had one word to describe Jonathan, it would be "dedicatedĚ." I would recommend him to anyone serious about selling or buying a property in the Gainesville area.

Thank you so much for all your hard work, especially continuing the search while we were out of the country.

5 starsAugust 11, 2014 - Raymond Fackler and Renee Fackler

When I decided to put my condo up for sale, I needed someone to coordinate repairs, painting, and cleaning since I do not live in Gainesville. I contacted Shawn Hicks with Allison Ables Real Estate, and I could not possibly have chosen better. Shawn handled everything thoroughly and professionally and kept me apprised throughout the entire process. He was able to recommend people to do the work to prepare the condo for sale, and he met them at the condo to let them in and followed up to be sure they had done the work. The outcome was that the condo showed so well that I had a buyer within 3 days. Because Shawn handled all aspects of the sale, I did not have to go back to Gainesville at any time.
Shawn Hicks is highly professional, ethical, and efficient, and I give him my highest recommendation. I have never dealt with anyone in real estate who worked harder or with higher standards. He was easily available by phone or email, and his efficient handling of all aspects of preparing the condo for sale, as well as the sale itself, greatly reduced the stress of the entire process.

5 starsAugust 6, 2014 - Hyta Mederer

In 2011 and 2012 I was an IT contractor in Afghanistan. While there I spent a great deal of time viewing homes for sale online...primarily on allisonables.com. Marilyn Bush sent me an email politely inquiring about my needs. She stayed in contact with me...checking in every few months...until I'd returned home and was ready to look at houses. I appreciate her courteous professionalism and support throughout the entire process. I closed on my new home in March 2014 and absolutely love it!

Shawn is awesome. Helped us first time home buyers more than we would have expected. He explains things very well. What we liked most was that Shawn was not pushy. He will tell you what he thinks about a property and not feed you lies to make a sale. We felt safe in Shawn's hands.

I recently found a new job states away and had no idea what to do with my house. I knew I couldn't sell it and make a profit, much less break even. I contacted Nax Joye and he recommended testing the rental market. Through Allison Ables, it was easy to get the house up on the rental market and within a few short weeks, we had our house rented out, I couldn't believe how fast they got it done. Very professional, determined and friendly staff made this process a breeze. I would definitely recommend their services.

5 starsMarch 1, 2014 - Jeff Nelson

I was working with Jonathan McMahon and had an excellent experience. My wife and I were first time home buyers and one of Jon's first customers with your company. We were very picky on what we wanted and the way we wanted our home. He was very patient and drove us all over the place in order to make us happy customers. In the end My wife and I decided to build a home instead of buy one and Jon was there to support us in that adventure as well. We would and have recommended Jon to anyone that is looking to buy a new home and give him a 10 out of 10. Jon will be with you from start to finish to help you find your home. Thanks Jon you were awesome in helping us find our home.

5 starsJanuary 15, 2014 - Lynne Clark

April was very prompt in meeting me at the designated time. She was very professional, and went over everything about the house, the price to list, and what the next steps were. I immediately signed the contract and in the first three days of listing, had two people come by and look at it. Then she provided me immediate feedback from the buyer's agent. She has been wonderful to communicate with, responding quickly to emails and texts. I don't think I could be happier with the decision to go with her and the company she works for! A+!

5 starsJanuary 12, 2014 - Susan and Arthur Shomer

Shawn was awesome! As a first time home buyer we had lots of questions and Shawn was always quick and willing to answer any and all questions.

Marilyn was our Realtor when we purchased our new home. She ensured everything went smoothly and efficiently. Within a month we received an offer for our former home and we called Marilyn so we could sell it knowing that it would be done right. She did not disappoint. We are not sure when we will purchase another home, but she will be our Realtor when the time comes, and we will recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone needing a Realtor.

5 starsSeptember 10, 2013 - Rachael Harris

We wanted to let you know how pleased we were with all the work Susan Ellis did as our agent. We bought our first home 27 years ago in Ohio. Selling a home for the first time, moving from Ohio to Florida, and buying a home for the second time has been a long and sometimes frustrating experience. We paid the price along the way for performances by other agents involved in our transactions that were less than satisfactory. Throughout the whole process, starting as far back as January of this year and finally ending several days ago, Susan was helpful, encouraging, professional, and a great advocate and friend. It was clear she was very knowledgeable about all parts of the process and gave us good advice and guidance throughout. We feel she did a great job in representing our interests. We wanted to be sure you and your company know how we feel about Susan. You can be assured we will have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone in this area who needs the services of a great real estate agent. Thank You and Best Wishes.

5 starsAugust 23, 2013 - David Groggel

My husband and I worked with Ryan Miller last winter/spring to find and purchase a house for our family here in Gainesville. Working with Ryan was great. He was extremely responsive by email and easily accessible by phone. Ryan was patient and understanding, respectful of our price range, and did not pressure us to move more quickly than we were comfortable. And he was sweet to our kids, who were often along for the ride at showings. We are very happy with our new home, and very grateful to Ryan for helping us through the process.

5 starsAugust 18, 2013 - Katherine Henderson

I spent well over 6 months looking at numerous properties, submitting offers, and working with the realtor on short sales and foreclosures until finally closing on a property in May. My agent, Cheryl, was always available to show properties and was very knowledgeable on all aspects of short sales and foreclosures. She was also very patient! I hired Allison and her staff to advertise the property and obtain a renter. She provide valuable ideas on what to upgrade/fix in the unit and then proceeded to rent it within 2 weeks for a rent that exceeded my expectations. Allison and her staff really know the market and are always very upfront, honest, and really have their client's interest at heart. I will use them for all my real estate business from now on - no need to go anywhere else.

5 starsJuly 13, 2013 - Joe Langford

This past spring we had the pleasure to work with April Strickland as we were considering purchasing a home in Gainesville for our UF student to live in. We live in Jacksonville and we didn't previously know April, but she contacted us quickly after we left an inquiry on an MLS website.

April was a perfect match for us and she made the whole process go smoothly, quickly, and easily, especially considering that we live out of town. She listened to our needs, gave us some great advice, compiled a list of homes that fit our requirements, and worked with our schedule to show us houses and condos at our convenience.

What we appreciated most about April was her knowledge about the area and the market and how she advised us when we asked her opinion. I felt like she knew exactly what we were looking for and understood our particular needs. On several occasions, when asked, she gently steered us toward or away from certain properties, always explaining why they did or didn't fit. I think this saved us a lot of time and since we live in another city, this was really important to us.

When we found a house that fit our needs, she did all of the work for us so we didn't have to arrive in Gainesville until closing day. She arranged and attended the inspections and reported to us. We knew there were some things in the house that we wanted to fix or update and she recommended several workers who all turned out to be helpful and competent. Even weeks after the sale she was helping us with this sort of information.

This was such a pleasant experience that we've talked about purchasing more rental properties in Gainesville in the future. If we do, we'll be calling April.
