What Our Clients Say AboutThe Moth Realty Group
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 Robin
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. - Morgan H
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.
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
Seamless Process Our experience with Gaye and Stephen could not have been better. After my grandfather's passing, it was time for my grandmother to sell her home in Virginia of over 30 years and move back to New York to be closer to family. My brother and I expected this to be a very difficult process as I live in California and he lives in New York. Neither of us had ever sold a house and we had many questions. Gaye and Stephen had answers to all of them. To add to the complexity, my grandmother's spot in the retirement facility opened much sooner than we expected. Gaye and Stephen were able to list the house quickly and attracted immediate attention. The house sold quickly and the price exceeded our expectations. What really stood out was their willingness to help with every aspect of selling and moving. They arranged repairs and inspections, provided mover recommendations, and even helped facilitate an estate sale. They were very easy to reach via phone, email, and text and more than willing to have multiple conference call with the three of us. The entire process felt seamless and easy. - AJ Belair
