I asked a lot of Janice and her staff as I was selling a property that involved dealing with a renter, her mother, a property manager and a regime. There were a lot of demands and balancing acts. She was always available to answer my requests and tried hard to keep everyone satisfied. Her staff was  invaluable. I was disappointed that I did not sell close to the original asking price or as quickly as I would have liked but there were a lot of factors to consider besides Janice. I do believe she tried hard in difficult circumstances.

We can't thank you enough for all your hard work. Our new home is everything we hoped it would be, and the price you negotiated was great! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to friends and family, and will definitely use your services for our next real estate transaction.

We recently purchased our “dream” home on Daniel Island.  We were working under very tight time constraints.  We would not have been able to find the perfect home in the limited time that we had without Mary Ann’s help. Mary Ann was able to narrow down our search based upon our wants and needs.  Mary Ann’s assistance and knowledge were invaluable particularly since we are from out of state and had limited information about the area.  Mary Ann is extremely positive and made the entire process go smoothly.  We would highly recommend Mary Ann to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home.

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.

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.

“Mary Ann helped us find our vacation house in Isle of palms SC. She was very committed to finding us what we wanted at the right price. She was extremely thorough from the search through the closing. We were very impressed with Mary Ann's professionalism and quick response when we had questions.  Mary Ann made the experience of buying a house 750 miles from home painless! We ended up with the house of our dreams and a great friend.”

Betty Gales sold my property on Jasper Blvd,Sullivan's Island, SC for full asking price in a very short period of time. It was previously listed with one of the top Realtors with Carolina One for over a year. Betty is a great communicator,she kept me informed every step of the way. Her marketing plan and videography show cased my home to sell. I also recommended another friend call her on Sullivan's Island and she got the job done for him as well. Betty knows the market and is a hard working motivated Realtor. I highly recommend her services.

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.

Testimonial

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

Janice have been amazing to work with! As a first time home buyer, I was not sure of a lot, but Janice and her team took me through the whole process and answered all of my questions along the way. They were always prompt when I called or emailed and made sure I  understood everything. I cannot thank them enough for helping me buy my first place!

Testimonial

Only certain things matter when working with a realtor: 1) market knowledge; 2) experience; 3) service; and 4) ability to listen and appreciate client's desire/goal. Janice has everything that matters, and she is a true professional.

Testimonial

I first met Janice about 6 years ago when I was looking to buy a condo as an investment in the Isle of Palms / Mt Pleasant area. She was extremely helpful in providing guidance and advice as I was new to the area. I bought two excellent condos which have been rented out long term until I decided to  sell them. Janice and her team were very helpful again. I sold one in 2015 and then the second this year, making a great profit on both. I would certainly recommend Janice to anyone seeking to buy property in the Mt Pleasant or Isle of Palms area.

Testimonial

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!

Janice was wonderful! She was patient, knowledgeable, kind and trustworthy.She helped us through every step of the buying process. We would highly recommend her to anyone buying a home!

Testimonial

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.

Your website was the ONLY resource we found that could meet our needs as we searched for a home. The polygon search tool allowed us to narrow our hunt to the most relevant neighborhoods, and your "Communities" content was the only truly honest material we could find. Thank you SO much.

Janice is sincere and honest; traits that I realized on our very first phone conversation. Janice and her staff were in constant communication with me during the whole process of buying and selling; from bidding, counter  bidding, inspections, loan requirements and every aspect of closing on a property. As a real estate investor I have contracted Janice’s service to buy and sell properties in the area and will continue to utilize her services in the future. Her professionalism and demeanor are impeccable! I am so appreciative when asking Janice for her honest opinion that she will give the answers that are correct for the situation along with the facts to back them up. Hands down I believe Janice is your best option – don’t look any further- you have found an excellent realtor!

Betty and Robert sold my lot in Wild Dunes on 14 Fairway Village when the market was slow and declining. They sold it for cash and it paid my way through Vanderbilt! Super easy transaction. Thank you so much!

My wife and I entrusted Janice with the sale of our Charleston home. Janice was strategic, analytic and also personable in her approach. Our home sold in 1 day which is a testament to her expertise and sound advice. We couldn’t be more pleased with our experience. 

Vic
Testimonial

We were really happy working with Janice and would absolutely do so again. She showed us properties all over the Charleston area and kept us informed of new listings as they came up. We took a long time to make up our minds and Janice was terrific throughout the process. She was particularly  attentive to details once the deal had been struck and helped through the closing and afterward. We would not hesitate to recommend her and in fact sent some relatives to her as they begin a Charleston-area home search.

Testimonial

We have had many real estate transactions over the last 15 years but we have never had an agent as great at Betty Gales! We have used her as an agent to sell a home as well as to purchase a home. She is amazing at her job. My husband always says that "nobody works as hard as Betty!

"Working with Mary Ann was a great experience. She is extremely hard working and very knowledgeable about the area she serves. Mary Ann always responded to our requests quickly and made time to show us houses (no matter how last minute the request was). Mary Ann is always very upbeat and made looking for a house a fun experience. She has a gift for knowing exactly what her clients are looking for. We would highly recommend Mary Ann as a realtor to anyone looking to buy a house in the area."

We had an expired listing. Janice contacted us and we eventual meet with her. We were impressed with the data and materials she provided. We decided to list with her. The property was under contract in a week. Great job.

Testimonial

We are very grateful to Janice and her team for the exceptional support they provided us in selling a vacation home at Wild Dunes. They went above and beyond to assist us, which was invaluable given that we were out-of-state sellers and could not be there to tend to all of the details that needed  attention. They helped arrange repairs and ensured all the paperwork was in order so that the closing was on-time and on-track. All in all, it was a very positive experience. I would recommend Janice and her team without hesitation.

Testimonial

Janice has been the ideal real estate agent for me. I'm a busy professional and she was extremely efficient and respectful of my time, yet very thorough. I've sold several houses in the past and I have never been as informed of the essential details as I have been by Janice. Her team added to the efficiency and excellence of the process that can be challenging. Janice selected just the right type and amount of sales strategies. She is well connected in the community that enhances her success in bringing the right buyer. I could not have been more pleased and would refer Janice and her team to any family member, friend or colleague. 

Testimonial

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!

 

Ralph Potts
Testimonial

I called the Betty Gales group wanting to look at houses and a week later we were under contract. No one thought we would actiually 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.
