Testimonials

She thought outside the box ... a thousand times over!

We had a wonderful experience with Gina. From the minute with met her, through her warmth, knowledge, and bubbly personality, we knew she was the realtor for us. Communication was outstanding! She kept us updated and we were able to reach her with a quick response at any time. Gina made buying a home run smoothly, even though we had a few hiccups along the way with the home we were selling. She knew exactly what to do. She thought outside the box, communicated with our lender, as well as our relator for our home in another state, to make sure the dream home we were purchasing became a reality. We recommend Gina a thousand times over.

A Guiding Light ...

Gina has been a guiding light through my home buying process.  Initially, she will work to understand your journey and your individual needs, then she will go above and beyond to find your home.  During your exploration, Gina will share her vast knowledge of the area to provide you with local information about various topics, so you are well informed. She will point out critical details about properties, the area and Florida if you are moving from out of state.  Gina genuinely wants her clients to find the right home and she takes pride in her quest assisting in the search.  Ultimately, Gina's innate desire to see others flourish, shines through in her work.

You R the BEST !

We were given Gina’s name by a friend when we both decided to retire and move from the Jersey Shore to Sarasota area. It can be very overwhelming to retire, put your house on the market and move to an unfamiliar area!!
Gina listened to what we were looking for and had listings for us to look at when we flew down for a few days. We were unsuccessful the 1st time ( by NO fault of Gina’s). BUT that is when Gina’s quintessential professionalism, unstoppable knowledge and perseverance to find us the “perfect” retirement home went at a whirlwind, breakneck and vigorous speed!! Within 2wks, Gina found us the condo we had been looking for. Being back in NJ, Gina took us through the condo, via FaceTime, we made an offer & was accepted. THIS is when Gina became our Wonderwoman, Superstar, etc. She handled everything, AND I mean everything! We never had to fly back down to Florida to do anything. Gina was our Godsend, and there just isn’t enough words to express our appreciation for all she did for us!! And is still doing!!!

Donna & Jim Dralle

Not once but Twice !

"Gina was incredibly diligent in helping us find our first property in Sarasota. She listened to our wishes carefully and spent a great deal of time showing us properties, providing community details and other critical pieces of information. She guided us through the search not once, but twice. I highly recommend Gina for her knowledge of the market, her experience, expertise and attention to all the details. Gina is not only a star realtor, she has become our friend."

Above and Beyond ...

Q: Would you like to comment on any particular aspect of the real estate transaction or the service we provided you?
A: Gina LaRouche is a very valuable asset to Coldwell Banker Realty. She is extremely knowledgeable about real estate and very savvy with negotiations. These assets made the real estate transaction very smooth and thorough.

Q: Is there anything else you would like to share with us - about the service you received, special effort made by the sales associate(s), or any other subject?
A: Gina LaRouche went above and beyond the scope of her responsibilities. She has a wealth of contacts for inspections and repairs. Prior to closing, Gina arranged for several home inspections, and after closing, she found a locksmith and had the locks re-keyed for me and will oversee the installation of a new electrical panel, all while I am in another state. Gina knows exactly who to call for any needed service.

Two for Two !

I met Gina over 12 years ago when I needed to purchase my first home in Sarasota. At that time she was very well knowledged of my area and helped me negotiate a beautiful deal on my home. Here recently I needed to get a home in an extremely short period of time. "Two weeks" To make things harder I needed some owner financing. She not only pulled off the owner financing. She found me a great location to keep my son in his school. I would recommend Gina to every person I met who needed a home in Sarasota county.

Below I have written my review;

Gina was recommended to me by a friend to sell my home in Bradenton.
She helped prepare my home for listing and helped me buy a condo. She guided me through the entire listing & selling process. Her attention to detail was amazing. The photos and Matterport done by her photographer were wonderful.

She is professional,trustworthy and knowledgeable.
She responded immediately to whatever issue arose before and after we were under contract.

She was patient and understood my needs and was always available to answer any questions.
Most of the transactions were done remotely and she kept me informed throughout.
I would highly recommend her to family and friends.

Thrice Over, a joy to work with! 5*

Gina, my first impressions working with you were: You are a great person to work with. Along with your talents and your technology skills you are a joy to work with. Because of your amazing positive attitude and eagerness to stick tightly to deadlines, you not only helped me buy my first condo and then sold it for me, you have also helped others who rely on you to get the job done, when i needed help with a rental. Once again thank you, Gina.

Recommend her very highly! .... 5*

Gina was perfect for us as a Realtor. She was patient, took the time to show us many properties in different areas, helped us to consider pros/cons of a place, and educated us on what it takes to get a home in a hot sellers market! She is excellent in helping you get what you want balanced with what you can afford. We recommend her very highly!

Kathryn Dundas

Gina is wonderful ... 5*

Gina is wonderful. She is a pleasure to work with and worked very hard to get the property we were after. She quickly learned what features we were looking for so we did not waste time looking at places that did not meet our needs.
She spent a lot of effort with the seller to convince him to accept our offer over others. And she got the title company to move faster on the closing so we could do it by a deadline we had.
We have closed on the deal and she is still checking on things and sending information that will be useful to us.
We would certainly use Gina again the next time we are in the market for a new house.

Mike Perlberg

Listened very carefully to our wishes ..... 5*

Gina went above and beyond our expectations. She listened very carefully to our wishes and ultimately found the perfect home for us. She didn't stop there. She walked us through each and every necessary document prior to closing while also sending us links to restaurants, parks etc.. that she thought we would enjoy. She is very kind, patient and her professionalism is unmatched by any home buying experience we have had in the past. We highly recommend Gina and we are incredibly thankful to her for her diligence and hard work.

Purchasing Remotely ? 5*

A great experience. Never thought we could purchase a property remotely, but after one trip to get and understanding of area, Gina found us a great condo in the perfect location for us and handled all the whole transaction and alll the details kept us informed through the entire process and was always available to answer our questions and address our concerns. Great to have a realtor that is there for us. Would have given 6 stars if possible. Couldn’t be happier and more satisfied.

Excerpt of what sent to Gina upon the sale of my condo:
“It’s a bit of an emotional moment for me but in the final analysis, I’m relieved that I am no longer encumbered by the Sarasota condo & the attendant responsibilities. It’s a bit of a cliche but I definitely could NOT have done this without you. With every hurdle we encountered, you were honest, straightforward, & resourceful in addressing it. You clearly stepped into my shoes in my absence & I truly appreciate how you did it, even when it was painful to give me bad news. You went above & beyond your call of duty. At the end of the day, we were lucky with the market timing, even though I worried about it a lot. I wish you the best in your personal & professional life & I hope to meet you some day....”

Gina was wonderful!! I cannot say enough positive things about her. We have been working with Gina for almost a year. Gina sold our home in Bradenton, FL in under 1 week and helped us buy our home new home in Bradenton, FL (Grayhawk Landing). I never once felt pushed or rushed to make any decisions. She was very kind with her time and honoring of our wants with our purchase. Gina was very organized and knowledgeable about the many issues that arose with our processes. She took ample time to help us find our "forever home" and we always felt she had OUR best interest at heart. We have been involved in several real estate transactions over the years and I can say that Gina helped make these last 2 ones an enjoyable process. I would definitely use her again and recommend any friend or family to call her.

I have had the pleasure of working with Gina Larouche on and off over the past nine years. Most recently, she found my husband and I a beautiful retirement home in the Sarasota area. We will be relocating, and are still working in another city, and Gina went above and beyond with previewing homes, taking great photos and videos, giving us her valuable insight of the area, and keeping us in the loop despite the long distance communications. We ran into some complications with our property we were selling out of state, which presented a difficult contingency with our Sarasota purchase, and she really knew how to navigate the issues with the seller's and got the deal closed in a very challenging "Covid-19" market, including all of our inspections, to say the least. Thank you Gina. You always come through!
