Weve bought and sold through The Gayle Borden Group over the past few years. Their expertise and knowledge of the area and housing market in general is absolutely spot on. Our main contact is Kenny Borden and nothing is too much trouble for him, he goes out of his way to make sure you are 100% happy. We always recommend them to everyone needing a realtor (whether buying or selling) and we would certainly not use anyone else! Superb, friendly, experienced and super nice people too!
After meeting with Gayle and Kenny, we felt at ease about our relocation out of town and need to sell our home. They made the process extremely easy. We did take direction and address all their recommendations on maximizing the space in our home for tours. I recommend taking their advice. The tours were abundant and our home was under contract after 2 days of tours. It was fast, but thoughtful. Were not looking to sell another home in the too near future, but if we needed to sell another home in Fort Lauderdale, they would be our team again.
My experience working with Gayle and Derrick was exceptional. They were knowledgeable, prompt, and always thorough and pro-active. The sale of my home went as smoothly as possible. They assisted me every step of the way and never missed a beat. My house sold for a great price and in a minimal amount of time. I highly recommend them!
I cant recommend this realtor any higher than to say outstanding! Truly it was a pleasure buying our new home with the careful guidance of Judd Chapman. He is simply a honest, trustworthy, knowledgeable agent. He instinctively knew exactly what we needed and after just a couple of site visits we were sold. Working the logistics of buying a property was made easier with the terrific support staff at Gayle Borden and the assistance of Judds colleague Derrick Buford. What could be a stressful event they made a pleasure. We appreciated every thing they did. Bravo Gayle Borden and associates; and a special huge thanks to Judd!!
Very professional team and great knowledge of the market. I was fortunate to have Kenny and Gayle when trying to sell my home. They were patient, very good at thoroughly screening potential buyers, and always gave me plenty of time to get the house ready for showings. They also took the time to help me find the perfect new home. I would use them for any future real estate needs and I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for an agent.
Top notch! I was a buyer in this crazy market. Jane Wheatley and the rest of The Gayle Borden Group team, including Gayle herself, helped me navigate to find the right home at the right price. The service was impeccable. They went above and beyond. I would strongly recommend them as knowledgeable, easy to work with and helpful. You will not be disappointed! They have followed up with me numerous times and provided helpful referrals. I feel like someone has my back in I ever sell again!
Just wanted to say that Judd, Derrick and Gayle of the Gayle Borden Group are like no other realtors that I have ever dealt with. They are educated in their areas, willing to give their opinions, go beyond the call of duty to provide all the necessary information as well as their personal time to make sure that Philip and I were happy with our purchase. I would highly recommend their services. If you want to feel like someone has your best interest at heart, meaning trustworthy, this is the team.
“After the sale of our house, we were very frustrated and disappointed with the process and our realtor. We had to look for a new house but had lost confidence and were a bit defensive. A friend of us recommended to Kenny and The Gayle Borden Group as the partners for the new search. Kenny gained our confidence since the very first day. He spent time listening our story and understanding our expectations, showing amazing interpersonal and communication skills. We also appreciated his honesty and transparency demonstrating deep knowledge on the real estate market through his insights and smart recommendations. Our household requirements and level of anxiety were not easy to handle but Kenny and the team fully engaged, managing efficiently and applying the needed sense of urgency and communication skills, still being accessible all time (sorry Kenny for the many Sunday calls!!!). Working with Kenny and the team has been a very pleasant experience.Kenny, thank you very much for all your support. We really appreciate it. Kenny and The Gayle Borden group are exceptionally reliable and highly recommended realtors.”Juan C and Carmen
Knowledge, Experience, Honesty, Integrity, Responsiveness, Accountability!What more is there to say for Gayle Borden and her team of experts? Weve had the pleasure of working with Gayle and Kenny on five separate occasions - both the buying and selling side. Never have they disappointed. They manage the entire process from market analysis, listing, marketing / advertising, selling and closing. They are one of the most well respected and recognized realtors in the SE Florida market. Plus, they have personal relationships with and direct access to other important real estate professionals such as real estate attorneys, advertising firms, lenders and home inspectors. They never say no and always work to find creative solutions to any unexpected challenges. Their number one goal is obvious - simplify the process, protect their clients and achieve success in record time.Gayle, Kenny and the entire Gayle Borden Real Estate team - Thank you for your exemplary service! We appreciate you!
My wife and I recently purchased a home in the Coral Ridge community of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.Kenny and Gayle Borden represented the seller, and we were so impressed with their professionalism, experience and credentials that we also retained them as our buying agents. In addition, we decided to retain them to sell our Fort Lauderdale condominium.Our decision to retain them for both real estate transactions has been rewarded in every regard. We have purchased and sold several properties in the past and have never experienced such a consistently exceptional level of communication, support, and marketing. Kenny has been in constant communication with us, sometimes multiple times a day. They marketed our condominium beautifully with very professional grade photography that also included drone views and a virtual tour. Finally, both Kenny and Gayle are honest, very hard-working individuals who are a joy to be with. For any future real estate endeavors, we will always rely on this dynamic duo to represent us.
My experience with The Gayle Borden Group has been nothing less than perfect. Judd Chapman and Derrick Buford were pleasant to work with finding me a home in this challenging market. True Professionals that take the time for every detail through the purchase, assisting with inspections, closing and my move. I would recommend them for any R.E. need
Gayle Borden had been on our radar for several years now as we shared mutual friends, but had never met professionally. When we decided to sell our 1 year old townhome, we were initially going to go with another agent. As luck would have it, we happened to meet Gayle who just closed on a similar property in our development for a record price. Mere moments into a very friendly and informative conversation, we realized we wanted her to represent us instead. Just weeks later, our home was officially listed and a few days after that, we got a near full price offer which was well above what we hoped we might receive. From the start, we knew we were in extremely capable hands. The Gayle Borden Group is the best in the business. Everything about our experience has been stellar. Gayle is extremely professional, market savvy, puts her client’s interests first, gets the job done and is the best networker I’ve ever met. It’s impressive! She truly comes from a place of genuine care, treats you like family and ensures that you feel valued, heard throughout the entire process. In a hot market where many realtors just “phone it in”, Gayle and her team “show up” fully in every way possible. With 30+ years of real estate experience, these are the experts you want in your corner. Whenever we’re ready for our next move, a call to the Gayle Borden Group is the only one we’ll need to make!
It was a very sad and emotional time for my siblings, around the recent passing of our father.Having lost our mother a few years ago we were no strangers to the sadness, loss and immense and profound grievingwe were experiencing. Yet it hit us all like a ton of bricks.We decided to put our parents home on the market. We spoke with Gayle Borden and Kenny Borden of The Gayle Borden Group. At that pointit was a collective decison to go with them to list my parents sweet home. They were able to handle the situation both delicately and professionally.There were some hoops to jump over and some preperations required, they walked us through every aspect, gently and professionaly.The home sold in just a couple of days and we were glad to have it done and behind us.My family and I are forever grateful to Gayle Kenny and Derrick for their expertise, their compassion, kindness andpatience with us, as we navigated around this very difficult and sensitive time.I would recommend this powerful team to anyone looking to list their home or their families home.They are top notch and really know their stuff.Best Regards,The Bondi Family
I worked with Jane over the course of a few years before I was finally able to close on something. Jane was always responsive, professional, helpful and honest. She gave us the facts and didn’t waste our time trying to “sell” anything that didn’t suit us. When it came time to close I felt like I was in good hands and she made sure the contract was written in our best interest.
From listing to sale, Jane Wheatley and Gayle Borden guided us to a successful sale. Their attention to every detail ensured we were ready to sell. Janes professional demeanor and down to earth approach made the whole process enjoyable. Truly, a FIVE STAR PERFORMANCE!
Have had 2 wonderful experiences. One buying, one selling. My agent, Derrick Buford was fabulous both times. Provided me with the educational materials to make an informed decision, so i was able to maximize both transactions. Incredibly professional. The consummate agent.
Kenny, real estate agent and brother to Gayle, helped us sell our house at the top of the market and was able to find us the condo of our dreams and negotiate a price that we never thought could be possible. The entire process was made simple from beginning to end. I highly recommend!
My uncle unexpectedly passed away and Derrick Buford made the sale of his condo easy and stress free. He took care of everything for me, from the listing and sale, the negotiation process, high resolution pictures, staging the condo, and the paperwork needed by my attorney during the probate process. Thank you again Derrick for your compassion during a difficult time. You are a true professional and a master of your craft.
Professional and knowledgeable. Gayle and Derrick and the whole team at the gayle Borden Group are fantastic. We have worked with Gayle and Derrick many times over the years and they consistently deliver results. When it comes to buying or selling a property, you want the Gayle Borden Group in your corner.
With short notice, we decided to buy in Fort Lauderdale in early 2021. Derrick, Judd, and team were amazing. Within hours the put together an impressive slate of potential properties. When we fell in love - day one, they negotiated a fantastic deal, and helped us get through to close (even with a challenging appraisal issue). Their preferred partners were also amazing (Tony Gemmell at Guaranteed Rate and Pat Nugent at Nugent and Ground for the closing). We love our beautiful new get away and the concierge service Derrick and team provided. We will definitely use them again.
Sold my last house through the Gayle Borden Group. Working with Kenny was fantastic. No nonsense, set reasonable expectations and then delivered. Very good experience and would use them again without hesitation.
I really liked working with the Gayle Borden team and especially Gio. She made many unexpected trips to the property as my seller agent to let me show my home to friends and family. The team really helped guide my through the process and ensure everything was done correctly. Everything went great and I love my new place!
I was very happy with the attention to detail, service and the follow through Derrick at the Gayle Borden realestate agency provided.They went above and beyond helping with everything that I requested before and after purchasing the property.
We have had the pleasure of doing 6 different deals with Gayle and Kenny Borden since 1997. They are the utmost professionals who have worked several miracles for us with short time constraints.
Our realtor Jane Wheatley was professional and knowledgeable. I would work with her again in a heart beat.
I worked with Steve Crockett on the Gayle Borden team and am posting this review to sing his praises! I moved from Oregon to Ft. Lauderdale. Steve was always available to answer questions. He was honest and straightforward, and had 100% follow-thru. Always! Being so far away, I appreciated that the most-that when he was waiting for answers he would let me know-I was never in the wind! I had two very brief visits to look at houses, and he made it happen. Even when I locked my keys in the rental car, he didnt skip a beat! He was always on my side. I highly recommend Steve!
Great service plus they really know what they’re talking about. Recommend.
Very professional and easy to work with throughout the entire process of selling our condo! Thank you
