Gabrielle was my realtor from December 2022 - March 2023, and I found the house that really fit my true "me" because of her! From the start, Gabrielle eased my nerves of the process, which was at first daunting to me, by giving me the breakdown in easy-to-understand terms. When we started looking at properties, she knew an absolute plethora of small property details (benefits of the various properties, items to look out for, pitfalls, numerous helpful things to a first-time home buyer). Gabrielle was literally available 24/7, which was very helpful - especially once my contract for a house was chosen and the process really ramped up! She was cordial and respectful at all-times, which can be a big ask if you're like me and have one or two "freak out" moments during the process. :-) One such instance was after the home inspection, which can be daunting to first-time home buyers. Gabrielle spent the extra time to actually formulate a recommended priority punch-list of items to review, which 1) eased my mind, 2) rendered the items easier to understand and prioritize. I feel that Gabrielle is a realtor who truly takes her job and clients seriously, and will go the extra 5 miles to ensuring her client is in the home fit for them to live in as a home. Definitely would recommend that you have a conversation with her on your house endeavors and questions!

Gabrielle has been nothing short of an amazing realtor. I was fortunate enough to work with her to both buy and sell my house. She has gone above and beyond for both experiences but especially when selling my house. I lived out of state and she kept me up to date on everything that was happening back in VA. She is always available to answer any questions (no matter how silly they seem). I couldn't recommend anyone more than her. She is truly the best.-

Gabrielle Pentalow (Shaheen, Ruth, Martin & Fonville Real Estate Company) is the best! She was extremely honest, upfront, and was able to find me a great home that fit right in my price range! She is very knowledgeable, accessible, and communicates clearly, making the home buying process extremely easy! From the first time I reached out to her, she answered immediately and from there on out she was very responsive. During negotiations, I always felt like Gabrielle had my best interest in mind. In closing, she is very easy to work, a savvy negotiator, and therefore I highly recommend her for your real estate needs!

My partner and I had an amazing experience working with Gabrielle. Being new to Virginia, We were overwhelmed with where to even begin. Gabrielle really focused on what was important to us, and helped guide us in purchasing our first home. She made the process easy for us while being out of state and went out of her way to make our first day looking at homes not only about the house but also getting us familiar with the Richmond area. We are excited about our new home and could not thank Gabrielle enough in working with us. We are excited to continue on our real estate journey wit her.

Gabrielle was fantastic to work with from beginning to end. From patiently and thoroughly explaining the home buying process from beginning to end during our first meeting to making sure we were kept in the loop and updated throughout. She quickly answered every question or concern with compassion, patience, and expertise that is unmatched. We never had a doubt that she was working for our best interest. The home buying process can definitely fraught with stress and worry, but Gabrielle made the process smooth, enjoyable, and rewarding. Even after closing, Gabrielle has been there to help find painters and contractors to make our new house a home. We could not have been happier with our experience and cannot recommend her highly enough!

I feel so fortunate to have had Gabrielle as my realtor for my first home purchase! She always communicated quickly and thoroughly throughout the entire process and answered any questions I had. Any time I wanted to view a home, she made sure it happened as soon as possible. I never felt rushed, pressured, or felt any sort of bias from her which allowed me to be be patient throughout the process and confident in making objective decisions. Between the acceptance and closing, Gabrielle did so much behind the scenes, working with several third-parties to be sure things progressed smoothly. There is no way I would have gotten such a great deal on this home in this competitive market without Gabrielle's guidance and expertise - she was truly with me every step of the way! I highly recommend her to anybody!

Gabrielle was very knowledgeable and comforting in helping me purchase my first home! She helped explain every detail and made sure I was 100% comfortable with every decision I made. She made buying a home in the crazy market super easy! Her uplifting bubbly personality made buying a house less stressful.

Gabrielle is amazing and she made the process of buying our first home a blast. She was our biggest advocate and kept fighting for us to get the best possible deal for our home. Buying in this market, and in our price range, is very tough and she was able to negotiate for us to get an inspection, get a lot of things fixed before closing, and a large portion of closing costs were covered. We also really appreciated how much time she took to explain every step of the home buying process. She is so knowledgeable, an insanely hard worker, and always made us feel like a priority. We would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the RVA area!

When my husband and I were looking to purchase a home in Richmond, VA, we quickly learned that we needed some help with the process. Thankfully, we found Gabrielle. She is extremely outgoing and such a positive force that we immediately felt comfortable with her. She asked us all of the right questions to help us find the perfect home and guided us through every step of the process. She understood exactly what we were looking for. I don’t know how she does it. She knows her business area and offered such great advice through the buying process. She arranged so many tours of beautiful homes for us and always had such patience when we were unsure about making an offer on a home. There was no pressure. Gabrielle’s goal was simply to make us happy and to find the perfect home for us which is exactly what she did. She also introduced us to other professionals to help with our home purchase to include an awesome mortgage broker, settlement lawyer, and realtors in the NOVA area to help us with selling our current home. Gabrielle works tirelessly for her clients and provides outstanding support during the buying process. We cannot thank Gabrielle enough for helping us find our new home in Richmond."
