“This letter is to recommend the services of Gloria Ashdown as an excellent buyer and sellers real estate agent. We have known Gloria for about 10 years as both neighbor and real estate agent. She represented us in the sale of our home on Flaxwood St in Almaden in 1995 and despite a down market, she was able to get us a qualified buyer, was flexible and we closed the transaction to our satisfaction.

Next she located our 5200 sq ft "dream home" on Nikulina Ct in Almaden and helped us negotiate a contract with excellent conditions and a very good price.

In 2000, after making a decision to retire and because of the excellent results we had with her, we once again chose Gloria.  Within 4 days we had 2 offers and ended up with a clean contract at a price far above what we were asking.

Gloria is professional, energetic and competent.  We feel she always had our interests strongly at heart and can recommend her highly, without reservation.”

“Dear Gloria,

Thank you so much for your time and patience these past few weeks. I have truly enjoyed working with you. As a first time home buyer I was more than a little intimidated by the prospect of finding the right home, but you made me feel at ease.  From the first home we looked at to the final days of closing you were there to guide me and I found your insight and knowledge of the real estate market to be invaluable.

I will be sure to recommend you to my friends and associates, and when I'm in the market for another home my first call will be to you.”

Dear Jeff,

Recently we listed our home on Camino Robles Way with Contempo Realty (now Coldwell Banker) and agent Gloria Ashdown.  As a result our home was sold at a fair price in a definite buyers' market. Obviously we were elated.

My wife Connie and I wish to "pass on" gratitude to Gloria. She was very professional with a good sense of humor, always looking out for our best interests.

Coldwell Banker is fortunate to have an agent with Gloria's qualifications within the ranks.  Any awards Contempo/Coldwell Banker would bestow on Gloria would certainly be deserving  and supported by ourselves.
