Exceeded Expectations

Listing our home with Gaye and Stephen was the best decision we've ever made. To say they went the extra mile or above and beyond expectations doesn't begin to scratch the surface. Real estate transactions are not known for being simple, and this particular one had some built-in complications that they calmly and confidently guided us through to a successful and very happy ending. They were there every step of the way, responding to our questions, advising us when decisions had to be made, and proactively handling all of the details of the transaction. They creatively and diligently marketed our property and were incredibly responsive not only to us, but to the buyers' agents and other potentially interested parties. Many of the accolades listed above are the hallmarks of excellent real estate agents, and you're truly lucky if you find yourself working with someone who covers most of those bases. But Gaye and Stephen are in a class of their own. When deadlines drew near and there was work to be done, they were on-site, doing everything they could to lighten the load, not sitting in a comfy office somewhere. We owe them a huge debt of gratitude for all that they did to sell our home. We have worked with other agents in the past and can honestly say that these two are the best of the best.

Class Act

Gaye and Stephen are a very experienced class act. It doesn't get any better then them.

Excellent Experience

We had an excellent experience working with Gaye, and honestly could not have asked for a better individual to help us purchase a home. She is very knowledgeable and professional, and she guided us through the process of buying our first home seamlessly. We always felt comfortable with her at the helm because we knew she had us covered and would make sense of anything we didn't understand. We have and will continue to refer others to Gaye in the future.

Consummate Professionals

Gaye and Stephen Moth are consummate professionals that bring experience, expertise and enthusiasm to the buying and selling experience. My wife and I have used Gaye & Stephen on (7) separate real estate transactions and continue to be impressed with their level of service, detail orientation and integrity throughout each. Beyond their professionalism, we enjoy Gaye & Stephen as people and believe they bring a level of calm & personality to the process that sets even the most type-A person, like myself, at ease. My day job puts me around a lot of other real estate agents and can confidently say that Gaye & Stephen are a step above the rest. My final point of praise is that when dealing with such an important life decision as buying/selling, the trust level with the agent (s) your working with is paramount and have seen Gaye & Stephen each and every time do what is right, fair, ethical and best for our interests. Can’t wait to work with them again!

Amazing Experience with Gaye

Had an amazing experience with Gaye. I was moving from California to Virginia. I had never been to Virginia and Gaye immediately set this uptight business woman at ease. She knows her stuff, always gave great advice, was awesome at negotiating and found my family our dream home! Not only did I find an amazing realtor and someone I could trust, but I found a friend!

Awesome Experience

It was an awesome experience working with Gaye and Stephen on the sale of my home. They were informative and kept my best interest as the seller as first priority. They came and met with me the same day as my initial inquiry. Their customer service and dedication were impressive. I am glad I chose to work with these too and would choose to work them in the future if I ever decide to purchase or sell another home.

Kind and Honest

I have worked with Moth Reality Team on (3) separate deals over the past (3) years and loved working with them each time. Both Gaye and Stephen are kind, conscientious, attentive, smart, diligent, honest and have the utmost integrity in everything they do. On the most recent purchase, my fiance was relatively new to the entire process of buying a home (my second) and she repeatedly told me how comfortable and easy they made each step feel. Gaye and Stephen are dedicated to making us, the client, feel comfortable, informed and went the extra mile to make sure I understood everything that was being presented before making decisions. I have learned a lot through working with them and would recommend them to family & friends 110%.

Professional Couple

Gaye and Stephen Moth are a great couple to work with. Somehow they maneuvered us through the COVID pandemic and brought us to the successful sale of our house. A truly delightful couple from the UK who add a whole new dimension to customer service and exceeding expectations! Such a great professional couple who I would recommend to anyone wanting to buy or sell a house.

Fabulous Experience

We are so pleased that we chose Gaye and Stephen Moth to sell our townhouse in Kingsmill! Coming from out of state, we knew it wouldn’t be easy to have our home ready for sale. But our experience couldn’t have been made easier, thanks to the consummate professionalism Gaye and Stephen demonstrated during every part of the sales process. They are so knowledgeable about the real estate market and they were able to address every issue of our sale, from pricing to staging to marketing and the (quick!) completion of the actual sales transaction. Gaye and Stephen gave us outstanding support and went the extra mile to make sure our townhouse received high visibility. Communication was always accessible-Gaye and Stephen were always available to provide answers to our questions and keep us informed every step of the way. Since we are from out of town, we couldn’t be available for showings. Our townhouse was presented beautifully, and received excellent feedback, thanks to Gaye and Stephen’s diligence and attention. When you work with Gaye and Stephen Moth, you really do get two consummate real estate professionals for the price of one! They work together so well to make buying and selling a home seamless and painless (Gaye was also our agent when we bought our first Virginia home!) It’s been a pleasure to work with the Moth Realty Group and we recommend them highly for all your real estate needs!

Great Advice

Yes indeed I would.... and have recommended Gaye and Stephen Moth. They both handled the sale of our former house, and the purchase of our new house. When we began looking at houses, Gaye listened and learned exactly what we were looking for. Gaye did not waste our time with houses that did not fit our requirements and seemed to be constantly monitoring the listings. She found our house hours after it was listed enabling us to make a good offer, and successfully purchase the home we love. Then to top it off, moments after were arrived with a Uhaul full of our furniture, Stephen showed up to help us unload. As we reflect on our experience, we very much appreciate Gaye and Stephen's knowledge, sage advice and availability throughout this process. We met Gaye and Stephen at an "Open House" where they became our realtor when they asked, if we ever move again they will be our realtors because they have earned it.
