"We've relied on Gene's advice and expertise numerous times, including
for the sale of two homes and the purchase of another. In all cases,
the service has been exceptional from Gene and his team. We've
recommended Gene DuVal to friends, and would call on him again in a
"I run an advertising agency; I am not in the real estate business. When I needed to sell my home, I called on Gene to make sure things were done right. Gene and his team are the best at tying up the loose ends and keeping the process moving along smoothly. It’s what they do for a living and you’ll be hard pressed to find a more competent team to help you, whether you are buying or selling. They know this town and are willing to level with you about a property. I strive to represent my clients like they do, with the clients best interest at heart."
When we decided to move, I was tasked with the sale of our home. We had already committed to a move date before listing the home, and this was my first real estate transaction. Gene showed us a genuine understanding of our goal and readily accepted the challenging timeline we presented. He explained to me in detail how the sale process worked and advised me on how to address our goals. He assured me that his team would walk me through every step of the way. It was wonderful to see all that Gene told me was absolutely true. The team handled our sale as their own, and they were clearly committed to our satisfaction. Each question or concern we expressed was answered clearly, honestly, and promptly. This team worked for me exactly as I expect from any provider: focused, professional, efficient, and tuned to my specific needs. My expectations are high, but Gene's team exceeded my expectations with ease.
We listed our home with Gene DuVal this past winter. Because of Gene's expertise and straight forward advice; we received an offer after only 9 days on the market. Selling our home was so much easier knowing that we had the support from a highly professional and detail oriented team.We highly recommend Gene and his staff to take care of your real estate needs. The entire experience with the DuVal team exceeded all of our expectations. We couldn't have done it without them.
We are pleased to recommend Gene DuVal to anyone in need of expert real estate advice in the Fairbanks area. He recently helped us sell our home in less than a week and facilitated a sale that the banks and other Realtors described as "difficult".
We chose to list our home with Gene after interviewing a number of local Realtors. Gene impressed us with his knowledge of the local market and the intricacies of home financing. He also gave a very concise and accurate analysis of our selling position and offered suggestions to improve that position. We appreciate how he presented the complex process of property transfer as a series of manageable steps and recommended ways that both the buyer and seller could protect their interests in his willingness to present us with a great deal of useful and professionally valuable information before we had even decided to use his services.
His manner is courteous, straightforward and efficient. We felt he provided much reliable information from which we could make and informed decision. Choosing Gene as our Realtor vastly simplified the sale of our home and we give him the highest recommendation for his professional competence, honesty and personable manner.
Yesterday, as Jim and I were discussing how much we love the house, it occurred to me that I owe you tremendous thanks. You really helped us through a very stressful time in our lives. For us, it was much more than buying a house. It was the start of a whole new way of life.
When we first started looking at houses, Jim had decided to get out of the Army. We knew we wanted to stay up here, but with no job and no house, we knew we had our work cut out for us. That's when we met you. You showed us several houses over -whew, how many months was it??? I think it was five months! Surely, we were some of your most difficult clients. But you stuck with us and we finally found our dream house. Then came the financing--not totally smooth, but everything worked our just perfectly. Then you went into overdrive and who knows what else. The important thing was that we were able to move straight from quarters to our new house!
Gene, we were so impressed with your knowledge of house construction and what we should be looking for when we looked for our new home, we have recommended you to anyone who is in need of a Realtor's services. You helped us through a very difficult transition and we are forever grateful. You are more than our Realtor, we consider you a friend.
