Client Testimonials

“Choosing the right REALTOR to sell your Terravita home is an important decision. Being a resident of Terravita gives Gayle an intimate knowledge of this market. Her marketing has been outstanding and she has been present for every showing of my home. Because of Gayle’s hard work, we are under contract after 19 days on the market, for slightly under listed price.” -Myrna Tilstra, One of the original Terravita Residents since 1994

“We were referred to Gayle nearly 10 years ago by another local REALTOR. We were so pleased with her representation of us on our purchase in Terravita that we were confident she would be the best REALTOR to handle the sale of our Scottsdale Ranch home at that time. Our confidence was well placed as she obtained a very high price for that home. As a result, we’ve referred family and friends to Gayle.”-Linda and Ted Zacks, Terravita resident since 2003

“2002, I moved from New York City, and was referred to Gayle by my cousin. Gayle quickly found me a perfect home in Terravita. I had to be California to care for a very ill friend, so Gayle sprang into action managing the closing, and lining up painters, tile setters, landscapers, cleaners, and countless other things. I am deeply grateful for her professionalism, and her friendship. Nice to now have her as a nearby neighbor.”-Karen Monasch, Terravita resident since 2002.

“This was the second time we used Gayle’s expertise and she is the best !  She definitely knows her stuff and she was our shining star.  We weren’t just a transaction, but a valued client through and through.  We truly appreciated Gayle’s personal touch.  She puts that special coat of CARE, that last in our minds for a long time, even though we have moved on…” – Michael

“I was going through one sale and two home purchases all at the same time.  Gayle made it all easy.  She is the best agent I’ve ever worked with”  – George

“We wanted to say thank you again for everything you did.  From day #1 of speaking to you via the phone, we knew, without a doubt, that you would do everything in your power to sell our home.  Your knowledge and hard work sold our home faster than we could have hoped.  You will always be remembered and thought of fondly.  If we can ever be of assistance to you, don’t hesitate to call us “- Denise and Ron

“Gayle was referred to me by another agent.  Interviewed her and found her to be honest, sincere, caring and utterly knowledgeable.  She had been doing this for years and I trusted her which was the most important element.  I knew the day I met her she would be a great negotiator and that proved to be true.  Her communications were steadfast. She was always patient with me and never made me feel rushed.  I thought she was so good I referred her to my son and after his sale, he referred her his best friend.” – Jana

Professional Endorsements

Testimonial from RE/MAX Agent in Peoria Illinois, consistently in the Top 100 Teams in North America ( I only made that list one year in the Top 100 Individuals in North America). It is rarified air, that is for sure. Her quote is as follows:

“I always make a point of being in the audience when Gayle is moderating a panel at a conference, as she is well respected in our industry for her market perspectives, knowledge and experience. As a fellow REMAX agent, referrals are a large part of our international network. Whenever I think of Scottsdale real estate, Gayle is my choice as I know my clients will get the best representation and negotiating skills with her guidance.”


“Gayle, I was so excited to meet you in person in Phoenix this year. You probably don’t realize it, but you are a legend of sorts in the Phoenix real estate market, and your reputation for excellence has preceded you for some time. I practiced real estate for three years in Phoenix, and was in awe of your accomplishments. Not withstanding the fact that you are one of the most successful real estate professionals in the Valley, what has always impressed me is that other agents have had nothing but compliments and admiration for you and your work. Typically, when someone achieves great success in our industry, there are always people looking to find something negative about that successful agent. That never happened with you, and it is a testament to your professionalism, superb communications skills and compassion. I am now a Real Estate Broker and trainer in southern California, and when my mother-in-law decided to sell her home in Phoenix, I was so glad we were able to connect so that you could represent her. Real Estate is a tough business that requires an endless supply of energy and stamina, and you are a role model for us all.”

Robyn Webb, Managing Broker/MBA OC REAL ESTATE 411.

“Gayle Henderson rises above all when it come to real estate and taking care of her clients. She has a positive “can-do” attitude and believes in a WIN for all partied involved in the transaction. As a lender, I first met Gayle when was the listing agent on a home that my client was in the process of buying. I saw how responsive Gayle is and dedicated to her clients as well. Gayle is passionate about her work and she SHINES !!!”
