Troyce found and sold this home to us 10 years ago and then sold it for us this past March. Working with Troyce is a pleasure. She is the definition of a true professional. Troyce went above and beyond “the call of duty” for us. She has a flair for staging our home so that it showed beautifully. Troyce also helped us find a rental while we are building a new home. She was relentless until we found the right fit for a rental. I would recommend Troyce over any agent I have ever worked with. She has certainly found her niche working in real estate. Anyone would be delighted working with her. I highly recommend Troyce Gatewood to help you find your new home or sell the home you’re in.

Troyce was very helpful in understanding our wants and needs, showing us properties that we were interested in, as well as suggesting properties that we may have looked over. She was able to see value and potential in properties that would meet our needs. She was always able to meet at our convenience and answered our questions with a knowledgeable response, or directed us to someone who could.

Troyce assisted my daughter in the sale of her home last year. Although Mrs. Gatewood resides in Frederick she was able and very willing to travel to LaPlata to show the home. She is very personable, pleasant and a delight to work with.

Troyce was extremely helpful with my first home purchase. I could not have imagined a smoother, stress-free buying experience. From providing an extensive list of properties in my price-range and location, viewing the homes that seemed promising to me, through to the closing process, there was never a time that I felt that I wasn’t getting the finest service possible!

Extremely knowledgeable, personable and helpful. Troyce went above and beyond to help me find the perfect home and is unlike any realtor i’ve ever dealt with. Highly recommended! I’m looking forward to moving in to my dream home.

Troyce assisted us with purchasing two homes and selling one. When buying our homes, she listened to our needs and found exactly what we were looking for. When we sold our home, she staged the home perfectly and exceeded our expectations in how she represented it. She is professional, detail-oriented, creative, and looks out for her clients’ best interests. We always recommend Troyce to anyone looking for a real estate and look forward to working with her in the future.

Two months ago, when I clicked a button on Trulia to contact someone to see a property, we had no idea how lucky we were in acquiring you as our agent. From our first conversation, it was apparent that we were in great hands. We had a laundry list of items and a tight budget to work with, but you listened to everything that we wanted, and after just one day of looking at houses, you understood exactly what we were looking for. The minute that the perfect house (that we now call home) came on the market, you let us know and we loved it from the minute that we laid eyes on it. But you didn’t stop there. After making a decision to put in an offer that day, you both worked until 11 pm that night (a Sunday) to get every last detail taken care of and the offer submitted in time. And despite the competition on the home (5 other offers on the table) our offer was accepted. We honestly believe that without the both of you, there is no way we would have ever ended up in this house. As first time homebuyers, we had only heard stories of how stressful and complicated buying a home was. But the experience and professionalism shown by both you and Joe was unparalleled. Navigating the maze of financing and inspections would have been completely overwhelming. However, the two of you held our hands and guided us through every step of the process and turned a normally highly stressful situation into something exciting and enjoyable. We ended up in a home that we would never have believed we could get, and we owe you a depth of gratitude. We cannot thank you enough for everything that you did to make our dreams a reality. We absolutely love our new home and could not see ourselves anywhere else. (However, if we ever find our situation changes and we’d like to move, you will be our first and only phone call.) Thank you again for everything, Zach and Jenn

Troyce was honest and attentive to our requests. She absolutely worked in our interest and helped guide us to an area where we would be happy with our selection. Being in a new area it is difficult to be sure the area you select is on you could stay in for a long time. I would use her services again in the future if needed. She was great!

Troyce really cares about her clients. She goes above and beyond the call of duty with research regarding any special circumstance. I highly reccomend Troyce for any size home.

In my previous life, I was a home builder, so I have seen many real estate agents. But I have never had the pleasure of working with anyone as professional and good as Troyce. To say that she went ‘above and beyond the call of duty’ – throughout the entire transaction – would be a gross understatement. She helped us prepare the house, and she spent much of her own personal time getting everything just right to put the house on the market. Her expertise resulted in selling the house in three days, and her work allowed us to do without any of the normal stress involved in such a transaction. I couldn’t recommend Troyce more highly, and I hope we will have a chance to have her represent us again.

We loved Troyce! She did a great job helping us to sort through homes in an area we were unfamiliar with. She trudged up muddy, grassy hills, around barns, and through farm animals to help find us our perfect home in the country! She also did all this in the heat of summer, while wearing high heels, and helping us hold our baby! She was organized and a pleasure to deal with. Thanks Troyce!

We wanted to downsize, not downgrade. Troyce listened intently to our needs and found us the perfect home. She helped us all along the way. I honestly don’t think you could find a better agent anywhere!

When I was looking for home in Frederick county as I was new in this area and got job opportunity while my family is still in Delaware, I have no geographical knowledge around Frederick Area. When I contact her through Trulia, She was very prompt, responsive, read my mind and tried to understand my situation with best possible help to figure out location, budget and family needs. She is unbelievably knowledgeable, dedicated, very experienced in her field and has power to negotiate on behalf of the clients. She has fulfilled my all demands and criteria and finally my dream came true with exactly what kind of property I was looking for. I think, without her It won’t be possible for me find a beautiful Home within a short period of time. I really do appreciate her efforts and help and definitely recommend her for the best of Real estate search. Wish you all the best. Thousand Thank you Troyce and may GOD bless you.- Edward & Varsha Christian

We could not have asked for anyone better to help us. Troyce made sure to always keep us on our toes about new and exciting homes she found, always did the best research into the properties, and never lost positivity..With such a great attitude, not even a month since we first spoke to Troyce and we were buying our first home. 5 stars all around for sure!

Troyce is simply Amazing! I cannot say enough about how positive our experience was with Troyce. Incredibly knowledgeable, patient, easy to talk to and genuine. Troyce went out of her way to assist us throughout the entire home buying and selling process. Her responsiveness is unsurpassed, and I felt like she was totally and completely selfless to make sure we were able to get all of our questions answered. She was there for us every step of the way. Didn’t matter what time or day, she was there for us 24/7. We always knew that Troyce had our best interests at heart. She was a great listener, and was considerate of our specific needs. We can truly say that Troyce was not just a realtor, but a friend. We would strongly recommend Troyce to anyone who may be looking to buy or sell their home.

Working with Troyce made the process of finding and buying our new home a very positive experience. We were moving from out of the area and she took the time to show us around to different neighborhoods based on what we were looking for until we found something we really liked (even after we changed our minds several times!). She is super knowledgeable about the entire Frederick area, down to individual streets! Troyce has been more than willing to answer questions, even after the papers were signed. She will be the first call we make if we decide to move in the future!

I would HIGHLY recommend Troyce as a realtor! We had been looking for houses on our own for years and didn’t think our circumstances allowed us to buy just yet. Troyce was so knowledgeable and helpful and even made financing a breeze. We are so thankful that she helped us get a beautiful home and made the process seem stress free.

When I meet people who use realtors other than Troyce I always wonder, “Why would you use anyone other than Trocye Gatewood?” Troyce surpasses amazing, going above and beyond anything I ever expected of a realtor. I realize I am not her only client, but I feel like I am because of the absolute attention to detail, promptness of response, and knowledge she has for the property I own and the one I wish to purchase. She truly thinks of everything and then some. Prior to this, my husband used Troyce when he was looking to buy a house in Frederick many years ago. When my husband and I married, we used Troyce to buy a house in 2014. This year, we used her to sell our house and buy another bigger home for our expanding family. I don’t want to buy another house again for many years if possible, but it’s nice to know she’s there if we need to! This particular house buying and selling experience this time around had been considerably more complicated than our last purchase. Being over seven months pregnant with a knack for having babies early, we found a house we loved that was a “for sale by owner,” and we couldn’t buy it until we had first sold our own home. So, essentially Troyce had to do double the work since she is the only realtor on our new home and needed to help guide the owner who wanted to go at it alone (I never recommend doing this stuff alone, never) and she had to work doubly hard to get our house sold within a 30 day period. We made our offer, our offer was accepted, and then three days later, our house was on the market, staged, photographed, and after 5 days on the market we had our first offer. By the seventh day, we accepted an offer. We were able to move all closing days up, we were able to get all inspections done, and she helped us arrange all necessary services. It was amazing! It is also incredibly convenient that Troyce’s husband can work out all the money questions. They are such an excellent team and much like Troyce, Joe makes you feel like you may be the only client he has, being very patient and working out all the math to make it work with great knowledge. I cannot understand why anyone who needs a realtor would choose anyone other than Troyce. Home buying is a stressful, but having an excellent realtor certainly alleviates a massive amount of the burden. It’s also nice that Troyce is so lovely as a person that you will want to have her over for dinner regularly at your new house.

After recently getting married, my wife and I were on the search for our first home. We spoke with Troyce just to get an idea of what we would be getting ourselves into with this process. We chose to have Troyce help us because of the traits she showed us that we didn’t see from others. Her enthusiasm, drive, passion, and the fact that she treated us as if we were her family. We told her what we were looking for in a house, location, and price range and within a few days she had a list of houses ready to show us. She had a handful of homes that she believed were the best choices for our family. We went to look at the homes and on the last home we found the right one. Troyce helped us put an offer that was best for us. Throughout the process, Troyce was in constant contact with us and gave us documents to sign as soon as they came up. Troyce set up appointments for the inspectors and water tests for us. We closed on the house with no problems. Troyce made this process so easy for us and we truly couldn’t be happier. Thank you so much Troyce!!!

I am a commercial real estate specialist. I have a Maryland Real Estate Broker’s license. However, when I purchased a home I wanted a residential expert. Troyce Gatewood is a residential expert. Excellent attention to detail and negotiating skills. I would recommend Troyce without reservation.

We began working with Troyce earlier this year with what we can only describe as a complex situation. We were attempting to extract ourselves from a costly custom build process. In less than a week Troyce was able to show us a wide range of options and help us find a great home. A mere 30 days later she was able to sell our building lot in only 8 days. (Hogwarts, call your service, there is a new wizard in town.) Lastly, Troyce masterfully guided us through the staging of our home for quick sale and top dollar. After one day listed we had a ratified contract. Throughout the process Troyce was unwavering in her commitment to our best interests. Her processes and methods were of the highest caliber and the results speak for them selves. She made a tough situation turn out great. In short, she is the best. We cannot recommend her highly enough. Dan and Mary

Wonderful, She was always available to answer questions on the phone and in person. Very knowledgeable and motivated, on top of every detail. Friendly and willing to go the extra mile. Highly recomended.

Troyce was simply awesome. She made this arduous process very smooth and when we were getting frustrated she boosted our confidence. She took the time to get to know what we wanted and was patient and understanding to our many needs, even with three exuberant boys accompanying us on our home showings. We were always one of the first people to see a newly listed house and on the selling end her expertise prepared us thoroughly. Troyce doesn’t just want you to buy a house she wants to help you find that special place. She wants to make sure there are no loose ends and everything is done as requested. She even helps past closing without hesitation. Without Troyce we would’ve never found our “dream” home, so our gratitude is immense. I would highly recommend Troyce to all my friends, she is simply the best!

Troyce was excellent to work with especially as first time homebuyers. She was gracious throughout the process and never treated any question as if it was a dumb one. She continually checked in on us and kept us updated. The night we put in an offer on our house, she was more than willing to talk us through the details even though it was way past dinner and late. We are now living in our dream home and absolutely love it. We would highly recommend Troyce.

My husband and I were looking for just the right space in the town of Frederick. We had some specific items that we each wanted in our home. Troyce did an excellent job of focusing on the options that met our needs and when we walked in to what is now our home, we knew right away. Troyce was responsive, she listened to us, and she helped us through the process which is a bit more challenging here in Maryland than from our previous homes in Texas and Washington. This was such a great experience. I highly recommend her.

Troyce was a complete professional to deal with. From our initial meeting, through staging , and closing, Troyce was there to help us. Our house sold in one day above asking price. I would highly recommend her.

5aeickelberg24

Troyce was incredible and so helpful in our first home buying process! She was extremely organized and reachable at all times- made our transition so easy! Would recommend her to anyone buying a home!

5mlewis2668

Troyce was very professional, friendly, knowledgeable and I highly recommend her. As a first-time home-buyer, she assisted us through each step and provided great feedback. Overall, I was very impressed with Troyce and would certainly chose her again.

I met Troyce through Zillow home search; After my first phone conversation with Troyce, I knew she was going to be my agent. During our first call, Troyce took the time to find out about what I was looking for, my life style,finances and needs/wants, which no other agent had done. I had been in the market for over a year and dealt with a few different agents, some were pushy and some just wanted to sale me a home and it didn’t matter if it met my needs, I felt as though they did not care about me or what I was looking for. On our first meeting, Troyce and I viewed several homes in different neighborhoods, she always new all the details about the area and home resale value; I always felt she had my best interest in mind. she was patient, responsive and always available when I needed her assistance. After a few months of searching and looking at different homes in different areas, I finally found the one. Trocey was quick In writing the offer and was great at negotiating the best deal for me. she even referred me to her husband who is a Mortgage lender, and between the two of them we closed the deal in less than 30 days with no issues. I am now in my new home and couldn’t be happier. I highly recommend Troyce Gatewood and her husband for your real estate needs.

5zuser20161024095049977

I was very pleased with the service Troyce provided to get my house sold. By following her advice and allowing her to stage my house, it sold very quickly at a time when not many people are looking for new houses. I would highly recommend giving her a call if you’re looking to buy or sell a house!

5user6305678

Could not be more pleased with Troyce as our realtor. She went above and beyond duty for us; we were moving from out of state and she handled some details for us that we would have done if in state, but, she came to our rescue. She was very diligent in chasing down the seller’s agent who was very hard to contact. A few days after we signed the contract, she brought us a verbal offer for almost 30% more than we had paid! That should speak for her negotiating skills.

5HillaryDavis22

I can not say enough positive things about my experience with Troyce and her husband, Joe. As first time home buyers, my husband and I were pretty clueless and nervous about the process, but with Troyce it was truly an enjoyable experience. She was super knowledgeable about the area, and required minimal explanations to show us the exact types of houses we were interested in. It is completely thanks to her that we landed our dream house, it was about to go under contract with another buyer but she was able to swoop in and get it for us at the last minute. She was always very responsive, explained every step clearly, and made sure we were comfortable the whole time. My husband is a firefighter, so we were able to benefit from her Thanks for Giving program which helped significantly in allowing us to land our amazing home. If you are having trouble deciding on an agent, go with Troyce – you will not be disappointed.
