""I am happy to recommend Gavin Thames and his team to anyone who is buying or selling a home. Gavin helped me move to a new city so I could be closer to my son and his family. It was the easiest and least stressful move I have ever made. I knew nothing about Elk Grove, but Gavin spent a lot of time learning what I wanted, and he found several suitable homes for me to consider. And Gavin didn't stop with learning what kind of house I wanted, he also spent time discussing the lifestyle I wanted. That was not something I expected, and I think his extra effort to understand my situation really paid off. I had never thought about an age 55+ gated community, but Gavin suggested one, and I am so grateful. I love my new home, and the neighborhood is exactly what I wanted. Living in a secure neighborhood, with most maintenance provided by the association, has made my life easier. Thanks Thames Team!"" Joyce J.

""Moving 2 homes simultaneously Gavin far exceeded our expectations. Gavin exhibits patience beyond virtue, honesty and the utmost integrity. He allowed multiple offers to develop to secure the proper buyer with the quickest closing and most beneficial terms to us as the seller. Without a doubt it was a great experience working with Gavin. Selling or procuring, I would highly recommend him for any of your real estate needs."" Brian M.

""Gavin and Rindie were a pleasure to work with. They are both extremely professional, courteous and knowledgeable. Not only did they sell our home very rapidly, but they got a much better price than we thought possible. Gavin has lots of contacts in the community, both locally and in the Bay Area, which gave us much better opportunities. They will definitely take care of any future home sales for us. Thanks, Thames!!"" Olof S.

""I was put in a position of having to sell my mother's home as she went into assisted living. She was emotional about leaving a home that she had been in for 20 years and there were issues about preparing the house for sale. Gavin was more than a real estate broker in this matter. He assisted on several side matters and successfully brought the sale and the move to a close."" Norm M.

""Gavin and his team sold two of our residences and found us our dream home. All of these transactions were painless from the selling to the buying. Gavin is a very skillful negotiator with a calm and collected nature, always thinking ahead, therefore developing a seamless transaction. There were never any surprises and we were always well informed. Our family would recommend the Thames Team again and again. They are our Realtors for life. The Luehrs and McClelland Family""

""We met Gavin at a Open House at the Ranch in San Jose. We immediately felt very comfortable with his knowledge of the area and his willingness to help us find the exact home to fit our budget. Gavin spent many hours showing us houses across the San Jose area. We finally found a home in Silver Creek which happened to be down the street from where Gavin lived. It was a beautiful home. In fact it was owned by a previous 49er Football Player. Gavin knew our budget and negotiated a great deal on a beautiful home. We would gladly recommend Gavin to anyone looking for a Realtor that actually cares about more then the commission."" David G.

Very good experience. Gavin is very professional, patient and good at answering questions. He helped my husband and I buy a new home at Four Seasons, which is a 55+ Senior community in El Dorado Hills. He also was a big help with arranging and handling the moving logistics involved with relocating from Santa Cruz. A few years later Gavin sold my home very quickly when I needed to move, and he help me locate an assisted living community. If you are looking for someone who understands the complicated issues of getting older Gavin is will do a good job

""Gavin sold our home at the Woodbridge Golf and Country Club and he was very involved in the process from beginning to end. We were very pleased with the way he took charge and with his negotiating skills. He comes across as a very likeable guy who is dependable and works hard for his clients. We got the price that we wanted, and overall, we were very pleased with the sale. If we have any other real estate transactions we want Gavin in charge. We are happy to recommend him."" C. Thomas

""Gavin represented my wife's parents in the sale of over $10 million of residential and commercial real estate in Santa Clara County, California. All this real estate closed within a 90 day time frame. Since I manage my elderly in law's affairs, I worked closely with Gavin through all of these transactions. Unlike many of the real estate professionals that we interviewed to represent us in the marketing of the $3 million personal residence, Gavin had an excellent working knowledge of the high-end residential market. He was able to recommend a sales price that met the delicate balance of maximum price versus timely sale. Gavin's team was effective in staging our property for that all important first impression. Additionally, he was skilled at identifying qualified buyers and then convincing them to view the property. I trust Gavin implicitly and would recommend him for any high end residential or commercial real estate representation."" D. Slack.

""My wife and I were looking to sell our home due to a employment move. When we met with Gavin and Rindie their honesty and deep care for our best interest was very clear. During the sale process, which went very quick, the Thames team kept in contact, always asked how they could help make the process as smooth as possible. I had to move to our new city before my wife did, but the Thames team ensured that my wife was well taken care of and the move when great. If you select Gavin and Rindie for your real estate transaction you will be getting the very best!!"" Steve H.

""How Lucky was I to have chosen Gavin Thames as my Agent. What often turns out to be a trying experience was turned into a very satisfactory one by Gavin's performance in all aspects of the purchase. Never was the time that i doubted his advice. The other part of the Team, Rindie, kept everything moving and coordinated to perfection. Even though there were several offers on my chosen house. Gavin's artful negotiation made me a winner. If I ever have another Real Estate need, Gavin gets the first call. A VERY satisfied Client."" Russell Thomas

""The Thames Team recently helped us sell two homes, one being an estate sale. Each sold over asking and within just a few days with multiple qualified offers. Gavins knowledge helped us price the homes appropriately. He worked with other realtors in the area who had recently sold homes to understand the current demand in the area. His attention to detail during the entire process made the transactions go very smoothly. He went over and above to help us prepare the home for sale, including working with the staging company and helping us determine what should be done with each home before putting them up for sale. We would highly recommend Gavin and Rindie to anyone selling a home."" Ken S.

""Gavin helped my wife and I find and negotiate a great deal on a brand new home in El Dorado Hills. He explained all the paperwork and advised us the loan process. If you are considering buying a new home from a builder, I strongly suggest having Gavin as your Agent. He negotiated a significant builder credit toward closing costs and flooring upgrades and made sure that we fully understood the home buying process."" Justin T.

""I worked with Gavin to sell my home in Cotati, CA and had a wonderful experience. Selling a home can be an overwhelming process, but I felt at ease with his expertise and dedication to getting my home sold quickly. He created professional flyers and promoted my property with other local agents to help drive activity, which happened within a day of creating the listing. He recommended pricing the home in a way that would create a bidding situation and in the end I received multiple offers. Gavin really helped me decide which offer to accept and advised me on which would have the best chance of closing in the timeline I needed it to and without complications. My home sold way over asking price and I was able to buy a brand new home in an area closer to my family. Overall, I was very happy with my experience and highly recommend Gavin as an agent.""

""Amazing! Gavin was instrumental in helping us purchase our home. Without his help and advice it would not have happened. His negotiation skills were right on and his suggestions were so helpful.

""We were new to California and didn't know what to expect. Gavin showed us around and suggested an area which we originally didn't consider. We bought a beautiful home in that area and it's one of the best places we've lived."" Denise and Robert R.

""I was honored to work with Gavin on the sale of our family home back in 2005. Being what I believe was one of Gavin's first listings, we found him to be extremely seasoned as if he had been in the business for years! His knowledge was beyond our expectations, he was incredibly generous with his time and exceptionally patient throughout the process. Bringing in multiple offers and ultimately choosing the right buyer we were able to sell above asking price which in turn was one of the top sales in the neighborhood at that time. It could not have been a more seamless process. I would highly recommend Gavin to anyone looking to buy or sell. He was truly a pleasure to work with!""
