Testimonials

There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my recent clients themselves.

So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.

I would be happy to email you additional testimonials if you are interested.

Gwen was amazing!! She was a huge help to us even though we weren't her clients! She honestly and fairly represented us!

J. Maxey - Seller

10th August, 2016

 

We were buying a house in TN; we live in TX. Gwen Lilley was referred by our daughter who also moved to TN from FL. Having never been through the buying of a home locally, let alone long distance, Gwen was a God-send. She was there when I had questions. I must admit sometimes my questions were naive but being a novice at the house-buying experience, Gwen handled all my concerns with ease and made me feel quite comfortable with her answers/assistance. I would recommend her, without hesitation, as would my daughter. The sellers were also impressed with her professionalism.

P. Parsons, Portland, TX - Buyer

We've used Gwen twice. She's always available, know the area well and goes the extra mile and gets the job done.

W. Atwood, Greeneville - Buyer

1st August, 2016

 

She gave us many listings to consider and showed most of them to us. Some were at a distance and took time. If there were quite a few listings to look at during a day, she laid out the route so we could see each listing the same day. We met a few of the members of the Broker staff and they were friendly. Thank you Gwen Lilley and staff at Century 21 Legacy

S. Grimm, Greeneville - Buyer

21st July, 2016

 

I felt she had our best interests with the help and suggestions for getting our house ready for the market. And also the info that she included in the listing. The sale went well. We did have quite a number of showings, which gave us the confidence that our place would be sold. Plus Gwen Lilley had a positive attitude which made me not doubt she would get a sale. Those are a few reasons why I would recommend Gwen if someone asked me for a broker that I felt will get the job done. Thank you Gwen Lilley

S. Grimm, Greeneville - Seller

21st July, 2016

 

I would recommend Gwen Lilley to everyone, and have several friends about her. Extremely pleased with the professionalism of Ms. Gwen Lilley!

LJ, G-Vegas - Seller

6th June, 2016

 

We arrived in the area in the middle of winter looking for a rural property, and Gwen was a champ. She learned quickly to wear boots when we went looking at property and was willing to hike into less accessible places. We also appreciated her patience, it took us until almost June to close on a property after looking at many and driving countless miles. I would recommend her to anyone, she is very good at understanding a clients wants and needs.

K. Boone,  Thorn Hill, TN - Buyer

4th June, 2016

 

Gwen was the third agent we hired to sell the home which was part of an estate. Her communications were excellent with notifications and results of all showings. We were extremely pleased with the entire process.

B. Robertson, Chattanooga, TN - Seller

16th May, 2016

 

Never any issues Great staff and professional at all times. We would call Gwen if we ever moved again. Gwen has become a friend who knows us and our wants and needs. That is a real help in finding a new home..

A. & I. Brodeur, Afton - Seller

2nd May, 2016

 

As we where living in California, I did extensive research on agents prior to contacting Gwen. Her bio led me to believe that she had the skills and character I wanted in an agent. And she did - I truly couldn't have chosen ANYONE better. CENTURY 21 Legacy is lucky to have her on their team. Gwen was always very prompt in responding to all our emails. She obtained any information we asked for (and there were lots of requests due to us being unfamiliar with TN and because of the historic nature and location of the property). She was on time for all our appts and prepared. She was extremely approachable, very patient and always looked out for our interest. Her instructions were always very clear. We are very grateful to have had her as our agent!! I highly recommend her to anyone searching for property in TN!

C. Bennett, Broylesville, TN – Buyer

25th April, 2016

 

Gwen helped us 3 years ago find our home. She stuck in there and provided us all the knowledge that we needed. It was a no brainer to use her again. And again she was great in explaining to us the procedure, keeping us updated and informing us if how to better our purchase. She made it super easy to get in touch with her for even the simplest of questions .

Diane McKinney Elizabethton TN - Buyer

She was outstanding...met all our needs and wants in a timely fashion day or night. We were moving all the way from NH and she was able to make it all a little easier...I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home.

E. Merrill, Elizabethton - Buyer

10th April, 2016

 

We tried another agent in town who did not research the market and give us a reasonable selling price. After the property sat without activity, we hired Gwen and we got plenty of showings and eventually a sale.

Gwen went above and beyond in selling our land. We were working out of town and she was great and handling everything remotely. She did a great advertising campaign and it sold in a much shorter time than we expected.

D. & P. Byrd, Limestone, TN - Seller

13th March, 2016

 

My hunting for the right property took a long time and numerous trips with Gwen Lilley. Although it appeared that day after day wasted because we didn't find the right property; Gwen never gave up and kept a positive attitude. Finally we found the right place. After the sale Gwen Lilley continued to help me get adjusted to the new community. Gwen is not only my go to person for real estate but is now considered a friend.

Gwen was very knowledgeable and professional. We had a few complications in the timing of our purchase and she worked to get them resolved. She kept us informed about how things were progressing throughout the process. We were very satisfied with her as our realtor.

E Scott. Greeneville, TN - Buyer

I previously purchased a home with Gwen Lilley and had a great experience. When it came time to buy another house I knew I had a choice in agents and could have chosen someone else but Gwen's ethics and integrity are solid so I brought my business back to her.

Greeneville, TN - Buyer

24th December, 2015

 

Gwen was wonderful! She was helpful, punctual, very knowledgeable, understood our needs, aggressive in marketing without being forceful or overbearing. She hired a professional photographer to take our home's pictures the first few days after we listed. The sign was in the yard the day after we listed. Gwen was very easy to get in touch with and usually responds within a few minutes to a few hours after I text or emailed her. I cannot say enough positive things about her service. If I ever need to sell again, there is no doubt who I will list with-->;Gwen Lilley She is the best realtor I have ever worked with! Couldn't be better!

A. Epperson - Seller

16th December, 2015

 

We really enjoyed working with Gwen, she is very good at her work. We had sold a piece of property working with Gwen before, so we already had a relationship. Gwen is a good commentator and always provided fast and accurate feedback and information. I would go to here again for advice on future opportunities.

L. Boughman Greeneville, TN - Buyer

15th November, 2015

 

Dear Gwen,

I truly appreciate your time, efforts, and experience in marketing my rural piece of property. I am aware that they are not always the easiest to present and sell, but you kept it on track to the end. If ever anyone needs a realtor that I am aware of, I will highly recommend you. Thanks again for all the great service.

J. Landess, Rogersville, Tennessee (Seller) 2 years ago

 

Did an outstanding job!

T. Reily, Brentwood (Seller) 2 years ago

 

By day one Gwen was already showing the house, there was a lot of people looking at the house in a short period of time. Couldn't have ask for a better broker, Gwen Lilley is on top of her game in the Real-estate business. With in less than three weeks she had the house sold. We were amazed at how quickly she moved it. We couldn't have been happier. We would recommend her to all our friends. Gwen is outgoing, trustworthy and a very hard worker. A great asset for the Century 21 Legacy.

B. R. Lowe (Seller) 2 Years ago

 

We had a sales contract in 2 weeks.... unheard of !! We didn't expect the house to sell that soon, it was a pleasant shock. Thank you Gwen !!!

C. & B. Harrison, Maryland (Seller) 2 Years ago

 

I have always enjoyed working with Gwen. She's very efficient and does a great job with selling my properties.

Patty T. Morristown,TN (Seller) 2 years ago

 

Gwen is the greatest !!!! She goes way beyond the call of duty and doesn't miss a beat we will always want her as our agent.

T & B Friend Greeneville, TN 37743 (Buyer) 2 years ago

 

Gwen was excellent in dealing with a very frustrating and difficult sales process. Kept me informed and let me vent my frustrations out! Very good!!

H. Campbell (Seller) 2 years ago

 

Gwen Lilley is very professional, and at the same time friendly (doesn't have the better than you attitude). Gwen is very knowledgeable, honest, dependable, and trustworthy. I will definitely refer her to my friends and will use her again if we buy another home.

M. J. Alderman, Greeneville, TN (Buyer) 2 years ago

 

Thank you a second time Gwen Lilley. It was a pleasure working with you.

J & D Reed Greeneville TN (Seller) 2 years ago

 

Any question no matter how small or confusing, Gwen took the time to answer quickly so I understood the whole process. Gwen was very patient with me when I decided to sell. No pressure. When we got to the point of listing things went very quickly. Listed on Monday morning and had a signed contract by early afternoon the same day.

Kathy from Tennessee (Seller) 2 years ago

 

You did a great job, keep up the good work. Thanks!

Andy Seals(Buyer) 2 years ago

 

Gwen Lilley is a true professional and will make your buying or selling effortless. She goes above and beyond!

Greeneville, TN (Buyer) 2 years ago

 

"Selling a house is no small thing. We were dealing with a lot of issues other than the sale of the house and we needed someone to 'just take care of it' for us. Gwen Lilley did just that. The entire experience was easy and manageable from the initial contract signing to the final contract signing. This property belonged to our son, who is in the military. He decided to sell and had talked to Gwen about helping him before he left to begin his service. She remembered his concerns and she never failed to ask about him at each contact and she understood our needs related to making sure his needs were met. This house was under contract within the first week and the sale finalized in a month. She was superb and we will always recommend her; and our son said, 'when I return here to live after my service, I will definitely deal with Gwen again'.

Bill, Beverly and Willie Gott - Greeneville, TN (Seller) 2 Years ago

 

 

Gwen truly acted more of a friend to us than just an agent in the handling of our purchase. My husband and I are both novices when it comes to real estate matters, and Gwen talked and walked us through with a solid base of competence and knowledge. We always knew exactly at what point we were in our search and final selection of a new home with Gwen. She sent us texts and emails to let us know what was happening, so we would be ready for the next step. Gwen Lilly has made our experience one that is a happy memory of finding and getting a home. I am already recommending her name to friends who are either seeking to sell property or to buy.

L. Richards, Morristown TN (Buyer) 2 years ago

 

"About a year after my grandmother passed, my dad was left with the task of selling the property.  He did not know where to start.  I have known Gwen for sometime and I called her to see if she could help.  She met us on the property the next day and within a few days we signed papers for her to list the house.  It sold within about a month!  Gwen was super helpful and answered all our questions.  When problems came up, she dealt with them and we got the property sold at a fair price.  Thank you Gwen.

                                              <<Eddie S>>  Sold in July, 2010

 

"I have worked with several realtors over the years but none of those experiences were better than working with Gwen. I both bought and sold a house with Gwen.  She took the time to understand what I was really looking for when purchasing.  She didn't waste my time and only took me to properties that fit was I was interested in.  She eventually located the perfect house and negotiated a great deal.         When I needed to sell, the service was just as good.  She didn't waste my time with unqualified showings.  At all times she was prompt, thorough and a delight to work with.  She is a true professional!"

                          <<Greg P>>   Purchased in Jun, 2009   Sold in Aug 2010

 

"Shortly after our marriage, we realized that a small one bedroom farmhouse rental was not going to work.  Luckily, I knew of Gwen Lilley-I went to school and worked with her girls and our fathers worked together. I knew what a wonderful family they were and I knew Gwen would never steer us wrong. We started looking at homes in Aug 2010.  Within a week, Gwen had given us dozens of homes to choose from that were in our price range, location and size. As we browsed through the opetions, we called Gwen (often) with several homes we were interested in seeing.  Gwen was always extremely flexible about going to look at these homes.  She was very honest about all the information she knew about the homes and dug a little deeper when we had questions. Gwen drove us all over looking for the perfect home. Finally we had a toss up between 2 homes and she went back and forth with us and our families as we made our final decision.  Gwen set up everything and was extremely organized-we never had a worry.  We moved into our home in October, 2010-Thanks, Gwen for EVERYTHING! You were wonderful, we'll recommend you any time!

                                 <<Josh and Holly>> Purchased home in Oct, 2010

 

"We met Gwen in the spring of 2010, when we decided to try moving because we were expecting another child.  In a poor real estate market, Gwen had our house under contract in less than seven days for a good price.  She then helped us negotiate the process of buying a new house for our expanding family.  It was a pleasure working with her during a very stressful time.  Gwen is the consummate professional."

                       <<Andrew and Nicole>>  Sold and purchased home in 2010

 

"We went through Gwen to sell and buy a home and were very pleased with her aggressiveness and honesty. She made sure everything was inspected and take care of properly and provided all information in a timely manner.  If we ever decide to buy or sell again, Gwen of course will be our agent of choice."

                   <<Mike and Shelley>>  Sold and purchased home in 2010

 

"Gwen Lilley has all the top-notch qualities that comprises both a GREAT purchasing and listing agent, as we have experienced both with her.  Before our move, I researched the Greeneville area via internet and came across Gwen by her numerous home listings and was impressed with her real estate credentials.  Right from the start, I was impressed with her qualities of being very friendly, approachable, honest, professional and knowledgable of the entire area.  We ended up purchasing a lovely home in a fantastic neighborhood.  Even though we loved our house and the Greeneville area, after four years of living here we decided to move back South to be closer to family.  We never hesitated on knowing who our realtor of choice would be.  Considering the slow economy and winter season, we had a great offer and successful contract just one month later! Gwen kept us informed all along the way, from our home purchase in the very beginnning, down to the sale of home in the end.  We highly recommend Gwen Lilley as our top Realtor of Choice!!!"

             <<G & G Cancienne>>  Purchased home in 2006, Sold home in 2010

 

"I needed help selling my property and contacted Gwen Lilley.  Right away I knew I trusted her to do the job for me.  She was very honest with me and I felt relieved to have her take care of something I knew nothing about.  I felt like she was heaven sent.  Gwen went way beyond to help me-she does her job very well and is also a great person to know-Thanks Gwen for everything."

           <<Sherry>>, Greeneville sold home in Feb, 2010  bought home in Feb 2010

 

"We were very pleased with the attention and service we received from Gwen Lilley at Century 21.  She used several different types of advertising to market our house and was always prompt in responding to any questions we had.  Thanks Gwen"

<<K & J>>, Greeneville, sold home in Feb, 2008

 

"Gwen went above and beyond to help us find the perfect house!  She was so flexible when it came to meeting up for a showing which made the biggest difference.  Also, Gwen is very good about supplying all of the needed information on a house and not being too pushy towards her clients - she allows her clients to make their own decisions.  She is a very comfortable realtor to work with!  Our house hunting experience with Gwen was great!"

<<Matt and Tara>>, Chuckey, purchased home in December, 2007

 

"I would recommend Gwen Lilley to any prospective home buyer or seller.  Gwen marketed our home extremely well in a challenging market.  We received top dollar for our home.  Gwen is a great negotiator-it was the most pleasant experience my wife and I have had with a real estate transaction.  If I am ever in the market for a new home, Gwen Lilley will be the first person I call."

<<B & T>>, sold home in August, 2007 and relocated

 

 "Gwen was a pleasure to work with through a very rough time.  I get overwhelmed when running short on time, like getting ready to move and no place to go, and Gwen always had a smile and something happy to say.  She sold our house quickly, for more than I expected, then gave us a pie for the trouble, what a deal!  We have dealt with Gwen a few times because we referred her to some good friends.  We all realize there are going to be some problems going through such major changes, but it is nice when someone with the experience is there for you"

<<Ray and Sharon>>, Greeneville, sold home in July, 2007

 

"Gwen is a professional through and through.  She went above and beyond any expectations in our search and eventual purchase of a house here in Greeneville.  Gwen was always available to answer questions and would fit us into her schedule even with a last minute request.  I would highly recommend her and would use her services again with no second thought."

<<M & B>>, Greeneville, purchased home in Oct, 2007

 

"When we came to Greeneville to look for a house, we were told to contact Gwen Lilley.  Boy are we glad we did!  We spent a couple days looking at property.  Each morning Gwen had a list of houses for us to see.  On our second day out we stopped at a new home that was being finished up.  We fell in love, made an offer and that evening were under contract.  If we ever deciced to sell and buy another place, Gwen is the only person we would use.  She makes the whole process so easy, from start to close.

<Bill and Judy>>, Greeneville, purchased home in June, 2007

 

"When we started looking for a home here in Greene County we were living out of state and had to sell our Florida home first. Gwen was the only realtor out of 7 or 8 that we had emailed or spoke to on the phone that took us seriously and helped us. She and her assistant Paul were very quick about answering our emails and sending us listings they thought would be a good match for us. They even sent bi-monthly real estate publications for us to look at. Fifteen months later when our house sold, Gwen and Paul were available to take us around to homes we had picked out and gave us great advice and even filled us in on some of the history of the area. We got a wonderful home with views to die for! If you want someone who is fun to deal with and dedicated to their job, call Gwen Lilley."

<<Art and Tina>>, Chuckey, purchased home in Oct, 2007

 

"Thanks Gwen, for finding us the home of our dreams!  I've never had a home purchase go so smoothly and I attribute that to your attention to detail."

<<Sharon>>, Chuckey, purchased home in April, 2007

 

"Without Gwen, I would never have found my dream home!"

<<Jennifer>>, Greeneville, purchased home in June, 2007

 

"Gwen-I would recommend you highly (and have!).  You have a knack for listening and knowing just what people are looking for and putting them together with the right house appropriate for their wants and needs.  Thanks for all your help!"

<<Kim>>, Greeneville, purchased home in May, 2004

 

"Gwen-thank you for all the times that we have worked together and how hard you've worked for me.  Over the past many years, we've had a lot of dealings on multiple properties, and I have always been totally happy and satisfied by the services you have rendered.  I look forward to many more years of our business and friendship."

<<Patty>>, East TN area, sales and purchases, 2002-2008

 

"Moving to Greeneville from out of state with a business posed some interesting problems.  Gwen Lilley, along with her professional staff, kept in contact via email and phone.  When there was a home that appeared to meet my requirements, Gwen went to that home and acted as my eyes and ears.  Gwen also assisted in networking me with other professionals in Greeneville which was enormously helpful in relocating my business.  This type of professional service led to my purchase of the perfect home.  Thank-you very much, Gwen and staff."

<<James Burke, Burdisco Imports>>,  Greeneville, purchased home in July, 2006

 

"After visiting Greeneville for several years, we decided it was time to move here.  Asked several people in the area for a realtor and they all recommended Gwen.  We spent several days looking at properties and found a home we loved.  Gwen completely took over from there as we were will living in Maine.  Everything was handled through countless phone calls and faxes.  We couldn't have asked for anyone more professional, accomodating and pleasant to work with.  Our move here was extremely easy and stress-less as Gwen handled everything for us.  In turn, we highly recommend Gwen to all our friends who have an interest in moving to this area.  She's GREAT!!!

<<P and P>>, Greeneville, purchased home in June, 2005

 

"Gwen Lilley was a delight to work with on our purchase.  All the info and pictures were on the web.  One look in person, an inspection, appraisal and we bought from out of state.  She arranged everything up to closing, no hassles for us.  We will be using Gwen when we are ready to sell again.  Thank you Gwen Lilley for taking all the work and making it a delight."

<<R and V>>, Greeneville, purchased apt bldg in Oct, 2006

 

"When my wife and I met Gwen about three years ago, it was to purchase a piece of property she had advertised.  We were very impressed by her knowledge, her friendly attitude and helpfulness.  Later, when we had some property for sale, we thought of Gwen.  Again, she handled everything in a very efficient and professional manner.  We highly recommend her to our friends.  If a real estate need arises in the future, we will again turn to Gwen."

<<Maj. and Mrs. Earl Creasy>>, sold home in 2006

 

"You took care of us and had great patience even though we 'yankies' really didn't know what we were looking for or why...lol"

<<Ken and Leanna Griffin>>, purchased home in 2004

 

"I was extremely happy with the service and attention Gwen Lilley provided for me.  I was going through a divorce at the time and she not only sold the house from my marriage very promptly, but also found me a wonderful small house in town at the same time.  Most pleasing of all was the fact that she was able to get the closings on both houses on the exact same day in which I was so grateful as I have pets and was able to move without the hassle of having to board them.  I have recommended Gwen to anyone who I know that is buying or selling a home and would definitely contact her again if I needed to."
