GWEN BROUSSARD IS OUR MIRACLE WORKER AND THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS! This is an extremely long review, but please read it unto the end: We were currently living in a beautiful, convenient, brand new downtown Oakland apartment. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we were given a 90 days’ notice to vacate! A dear church member put us in touch with a mortgage lender who qualified us for enough to make a purchase and we were given one of their real estate agents to work with. Being new to the entire process and not knowing that we could use the lender for funding, but select our own agent was traumatic at best! The agent soon dropped us and we were left dead in the water, with now less than 60 days to vacate our unit! We came to Gwen under the direst of circumstances and implored her real-estate prowess for assistance. She gave us a timeline and said “Stick with me and WE WILL FIND YOU A HOME.” She was thorough, efficient, patient and no-nonsense (in working w/the seller’s agents). She held our hands and walked us through EVERY STEP OF THE PROCESS! From going out to look for homes daily, on down to explaining all the ins and outs of the contracts/agreements, to connecting us with the finest network of agencies, (i.e. home and pest inspectors, etc.) to assist us in the purchasing process. She is a down-right maven, an authority and expert in all things real estate! I can’t imagine NOT having had her to be our agent for purchasing our first home! She encouraged us until the very end. There were MANY times we wanted to give up. We were facing this incredible deadline and didn’t know if we should just throw in the towel and rent an apartment for $2200/month or to keep searching. She made the entire ordeal something we could totally conquer and wondered why we hadn’t sought out her services sooner! We got an offer accepted on our new home about a month before we were mandated to be out of our apartment. She made it possible for the deal to be expedited and we were able to move out of our apartment and received the keys to our beautiful new home on the same day! Our mortgage is several hundred dollars below what we would have given away in rent. Our home is absolutely amazing and perfect for our little family; our neighborhood is cute and the neighbors are friendly. I recommend Gwen not only to YOU but to anyone! As a matter of fact, I recently did recommend someone to her. I had the opportunity to share with her how easy the entire process was with Gwen and how her knowledge and understanding of real estate is a must have and just how REALLY DOABLE the home buying process is with a fantastic agent. She not only took my suggestion and contacted Gwen, but do you know SHE TOO just received the keys to her new home and her deal was completed in even less time than ours! I myself was amazed at how quick the transaction happened from start to finish! I’m telling you from my own personal experience, IF YOU DON’T HAVE A REAL ESTATE AGENT – DO YOURSELF A FAVOR – GET GWEN!!!! You’ll thank me that you did and soon be sending my invitation to the housewarming party for YOUR new home! Thanks Gwen Broussard for making a lifelong dream our present day reality for our family.

    If there was a 10 star option I would start off with that for this review. The Solari group “team” comprised of (Nicole and Ian) were exceptional to work with. Buying a home is supposed to be a stressful process, however; they made our buying experience a lot of fun. In every aspect of the...
