"It's been two months since the closing on our house and I think of you often. We so appreciate the professionalism and personal friendship you extended to us both. Betty, as you recall, I didn't find you – you found me! From the moment we met, your true sincerity and understanding of our situation won me over. From listing until closing, you and Robert were always available to us and saw us through the entire process. I can't express how much that meant to us.
You helped us set a realistic asking price for our house and made sure the offer we accepted was very near that mark. And you got us through the inspection process and closing. We have bought and sold a number of properties over the years and really this is the first time that I have felt that my realtor was working for me the entire time.
We will soon begin looking for a smaller house and know that you are the realtor we want working for us. I'll be talking with you soon, I'm sure.
I have and will continue to recommend you without reservation to anyone looking to buy or sell property"
- Paige Gamble. owner of 208 Beauford, Hibben | Sellers in Mt Pleasant
"This is a bitter sweet day of us. I really appreciate all your work in getting this closing. Even though this closing is a huge relief in one sense I still feel like we need to one day pay the bank the difference. We feel awful about signing our word to pay our mortgage and then ended up not being able to make good on our promise when obtaining the loan. We have never given our word to do something and then not do it. This is a first and it has been hard. You and Betty have been absolutely wonderful and we know we would have never been able to do this on our own."
- Short Sale Clients
"I don't think I have written yet to thank you and Robert for everything you did for us in the sale of our Priestly Street home. We are in SC right now visiting family, and it is so nice for us to be here without the additional stresses of the yard, etc. I'm so thankful that y'all came along when you did, and for all your hard work in the quick sale of that house. I am sure it would still be on the market now, if we had not switched to the Betty Gales team! Thanks again, and I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday."
"I think everyone looks for results and that's what we got with Betty!
-Jeff Bostic, Redskins Center
"Personality, enthusiasm and willingness to work hard."
-Jeanett and Rudy Barnes, Esquire
"By far one of the best agents ever. Very professional! At one point, we decided that maybe renting was the best strategy. We felt that Betty was with us all the way. Persistent but not pushy and always willing to keep trying with our best interest 'at heart.' We found just what we were looking for."
-Nancy Cross, MD
"Betty was a pleasure to work with and a very hard working, kind individual who will go past the extra mile to help. We will never make a move without her!"
-Julie and John Farrow, MD
"Betty is enthusiastic and follows up on details. She got a lot done to sell my property that others had not taken the time to do. She is effective in her communications and very professional." -Beth & Burge Sigety
"Without a doubt, Betty Gales is one of the most knowledgeable realtor in Charleston. Her 31 years of experience in real estate shows that this is truly her passion, and it is a proven fact that she is very successful in what she does. She is respectful and only has the best interest in her clients. Betty helped us in purchasing a property in Mount Pleasant fifteen years ago. It was a very smooth transaction. Two years ago, we used her again in selling the same property. Again, the transaction was as smooth as it could be. To me, that speaks of her professionalism, integrity, and competence. Even though, she sold hundreds of properties, she remembered us and the property we purchased. Betty helped us during the booming market in 1999 and also during the slow real estate market in 2013. I wish there are more stars we could give her." - Jo Gilpatrick
"I had a client who was interested in buying a property on the water, ocean or lake in the Charleston area. I am a realtor in Florida, and did not know any realtors in Charleston so I started calling different realtors in the Charleston area. Betty called me back almost immediately. She was insightful, a delight to talk to, an was extremely knowledgeable about what I was looking for. She found me several properties that fit the perimeters that I gave her. She always returned my phone call promptly and went out of her way to make sure that my client was satisfied with the listings she sent to him. Betty is a true professional. You will not find a better realtor or for that matter a better person than Betty Gales. I hope I have the chance to work with her again" - Steve Feldman
"Betty was so responsive and attentive at our initial meeting that it made our choice to use her as our listing agent a no brainer. Just before we were to list, we were able to execute a private contract that had been excluded. Betty continued to help us through the process. Also the appraised value was spot on with her initial assessment. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!" - Jan & Brian Lambert
"Betty was great to work with - very professional and knowledgeable , After having the beach house listed with another agent for over a year with very little activity and no serious offers, I switched to Betty Gales. Within a week we had an offer (which was not accepted. But within a few months we did get a valid offer and the house was SOLD. I would highly recommend Betty to all of my friends" - Barbara Baker
"Betty Gales was a gift that fell from the sky before we were even ready to list our house. Our lives changed very abruptly, and although we were planning to sell our place, changes presented themselves far sooner than expected. I followed my intuition and she jumped on my bandwagon and was ready and willing to listen to my ideas. Betty and I became friends through this chance meeting because she was so willing to listen and I trusted her immediately. Even when we were getting to the tough parts, she maintained her professionalism and fortitude on our behalf. She's a gem. We'd recommend Betty Gales to anyone who truly will allow her do her thing. She's great at it! - Kathy & Jerry Dorsam
"My wife and I had the opportunity to work with Betty when we were purchasing our residence on Sullivan's Island. She is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market on Sullivan's and Isle of Palms and was a pleasure to work with and would highly recommend her to anybody!" - Brett Bluestein
"Ms. Gales marketed and sold my condo in a depressed market. The actively showed the property and successfully negotiated the sale. Along the way we became friends. She was professional and committed to a satisfactory out-come." - Tom Nall
"Betty and Robert did an unbelievable job helping me buy my home on Sullivan's Island last year. They are extremely knowledgeable, hard working, and professional. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is buying or selling their home. I can't imagine anyone doing a better job than they did for me. I would definitely use them again. " Doctor Millin Budeb
"I called the Betty Gales group wanting to look at houses and a week later we were under contract. No one thought we would actually close on time (30 day closing) but through hard work and determination we did! Although buying a home can be stressful, everyone we worked with (Caleb & Robert) was great at navigating us through the entire process. I would definitely recommend buying or selling a home with them." user8671982
"My experience with the Betty Gales Group was primarily with Caleb Pearson and Hank Johnson. This duo was highly effective, extremely knowledgeable and very professional. Their knowledge of the negotiation and sales process was/is unmatched.
Caleb was able to obtain two separate offers on our property within 1 month and the property had previously gone through four different Realtor's over a two year period. He was always available (even at odd times throughout the day) and never left a question unanswered. He was extremely optimistic that the group would get an offer and get the property sold!
Once we had the offer in-hand, I started to work with Hank Johnson. Hank worked with my wife and I through the home repair and the closing process. We needed to make minor repairs, and Hank walked us through the process with his expert knowledge. We then moved to the final process of closing, and again, Hank's knowledge in this area was unparalleled. He was able to answer any questions that my wife and I had and explained it in a way that non-real estate persons could understand it.
Overall, my experience was extremely positive and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND that if you need any Real Estate help, contact the Betty Gales Group! " - user9382974
"My husband and I had used other realtors in the past to try and sale our home, but Caleb and his group came in and sold it...very quickly! Caleb and Hank were very knowledgeable, always responsive and professional and basically, just got the job done! We were very happy to have been able to work with them!" - user02674806
"I highly recommend The Gales Group. They didn't make me feel like just another paycheck - instead they were very attentive to my (sometimes extreme) demands and worked really hard to make sure I was happy! They are a great team!" - user595286
"I purchased a house in SC while living out of state and Will knew the area very well. He was able to find my family a house within our price range and in a safe neighborhood. He worked long and hard not only to help purchase the house, but to hold the other parties accountable. He went above a beyond the call, was responsive to all of my texts/emails, and was willing to answer any question I had. I would HIGHLY recommend Will as your Realtor."- Ryan
"Will Driggers appreciates how big a deal buying a house is, and he did everything in order to protect my interests and value as a buyer. He started my search with a great deal of understanding for what my wife and I wanted in a home, and stuck to that. He was a great source to "think out loud" with in this process. He was extremely patient with the time it took to go through this process. My purchase was not a "quick sell" - there was a lot of due diligence and process in what I had to do to get the home we wanted at the price point that I thought was correct for the property. Mr. Driggers was invaluable for resources, also. He had resources for home inspectors, contractors, closing attorney's, banks, city clerks, etc. He knew the area very well - which also helped in our decision to buy in the location we bought. I recommend Will Driggers as a "buyer's" dream real estate agent." -zuser20160408134450088
