We met several brokers/agents during our 12 years in Brookings. Gayle Chapel ranked high among our early options based on interactions in various social and professional settings during those 12 years. We appreciate the way she engages people and conducts herself in those environments. Gayle's approach fit us perfectly. She offers informed, reasoned counsel in the process and presents options, where applicable. She then leaves the decisions to the client. We appreciate that style. We reached an agreement with the buyers on price within two weeks, and Gayle worked very effectively with the buyers' agent on our behalf. We have mentioned several times how well she guided us through the process and helped us achieve our goals, as sellers, on price and timing. Bottom line ... Brookings can be a complicated housing market, and Gayle understands it well. We give Gayle Chapel our highest recommendation.
