What Our Clients Say AboutStephen Moth
Gaye and Stephen worked tirelessly to get our house in top condition for sale, going above and beyond our expectations. We always felt that this sale was in good hands. Gaye and Stephen communicated consistently and clearly, and we always knew just where we were in the process. Ultimately, we had an offer, over asking price, less than a week on the market. From our initial contact with the Moths, right through closing, this was the easiest home sale we've ever had. Thanks so much, Gaye and Stephen!! - Moth Team Review – 109 Lillie Street
Gaye and her husband Stephen were fantastic to work with and helped us find the perfect home for our needs. We were relocating from outside the area, and Gaye was always eager to help by being our local eyes and ears for virtual tours, questions about listings or recommendations on which areas might fit what we were looking for. Wouldn't hesitate to work with them again. - Cody W.
Our move to Williamsburg went easier, the house buying process went more smoothly and we found the perfect home thanks to working with Gaye and Stephen Moth! We moved to this area not knowing much about it. Gaye and Stephen took the time to help us learn the area and find which neighborhoods we would like. Their local knowledge even extended to restaurant and shopping recommendations-perfect for someone new in town. When we went to make a bid on a home, they led us through the process and helped negotiate a good deal. They tailored the negotiations to the situation of the particular home we looked at. When our bid was accepted Gaye and Stephen connected us with knowledgeable experts so we could get the best information for our inspection, insurance, mortgage broker and settlement agent. We have been able to count on them for great referrals for home repairs and upgrades as well. As with any home buying or selling process, issues can come up, and Gaye and Stephen maintained their calm, professional demeanor and always managed to get things back on track. We started working with Gaye and Stephen Moth as our realtors; we fell we ended up being able to call them friends. They are the best of the best! - Happy Clients
Gaye & her husband Stephen were an absolute pleasure to work with during the sale of our home. Gaye and Stephen's support went well beyond our expectations. From our first meeting the closing of the sale every detail was seamlessly coordinated. Thank you..... Gaye & Stephen for everything you did and we will certainly never forget how pleasant you made our experience we will recommend you both to all of our friends and family. - Happy Client
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. - Jennifer S
Class Act Gaye and Stephen are a very experienced class act. It doesn't get any better then them. - Minh and Robert L.
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! - Simon O
Outstanding Team Gaye & Stephen Moth are the most outstanding real estate team we have ever encountered. From the recommendations we received from 2 neighbors, to our initial meeting, & for the entire sales process, their calm & professional manner & expertise cannot be matched. We appreciated the value they placed on our home & worked to decrease our stress in the process of an out of state move. Even after the sale was complete, Stephen returned to our house to take furniture to a donation site when the Salvation Army stood us up. Lovely people. Professional; ethical; blessed to have them in our lives for this process. - Celeste C
A Class of Their Own If you’re looking for a realtor, and need to buy or sell a home, Moth Realty Group is in a class of their own. You literally get two for the price of one. Gaye and Stephen are absolutely wonderful to work with. They are the perfect combination of knowledge, experience, wit, trust, professionalism, humor and honesty. We’ve had the opportunity to spend quite a bit of time getting to know Gaye and Stephen, as they have helped us sell 2 townhomes (very quickly and over asking price- might I add), as well as, took time to find us a new home that would work best for us. I’ve been a bit indecisive and back and forth on the search for our new home, but have never been made to feel that way; I’ve only been given understanding and support from Gaye. This was my first time selling a home, as it was my first- Gaye and Stephen handled everything and were always available for communication and questions, and made me feel truly comfortable throughout the entire process. You will never have any idea how busy they really are, because they make you feel like you are their only client. They are extremely driven and motivated and are genuinely good people. I would trust them to negotiate anything on my behalf. Go with Moth Realty Group; you’ll thank me for it later! - Meg
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. - W. Hatcher
