I could never shake the feeling that Gretel was going "above and beyond" what is expected of a real estate agent. I will definitely be calling her when it is time to move to a new home and would recommend her for anyone looking for a hardworking Realtor.

Gretel is extremely knowledgeable. She is also super fun to work with and connected me with not only my new home, but the mortgage broker, home inspector and attorney to close the deal! I strongly recommend Gretel Howell for anyone in need of finding their next real estate investment.

Our home was shown numerous times and sold for top dollar. Gretel kept us well informed and her expertise allowed us to make intelligent decisions. We highly recommend Gretel.

Gretel Howell did an outstanding job in helping us find our new home. She completely understood the type, size, and style of home we were seeking within our budget. We were especially impressed with her follow-up actions after the sale by putting us in contact with various contractors and sources for specialty household items. Even after settlement, she continued to offer help and suggestions. Couldn't have had a better experience!

We experienced total satisfaction working with Gretel. She is a consummate professional who is concerned about you and your new home. Gretel went the extra mile to be sure we were exposed to and could experience all of our options around Lake Norman before we selected our new home.
My husband and I recently relocated to Charlotte after an employment transfer from Australia. As new home buyer's in the US, Gretel was fantastic in educating us on the requirements and idiosyncrasies of the Charlotte market. Throughout the process, Gretel always remained professional and knowledgable; yet friendly and courteous. In doing so, Gretel made our introduction to US home ownership seamless and stress-free. We look forward to working with Gretel again in the near future!
Let me start with the word " Professional" Gretel Howell conducted herself in the most professional manner. From start to finish she was professional. From the first appointment to the closing she demonstrated nothing but a professional attitude. She showed me the process and what she would do for me all the way the entire sale. We had our share of bumps, but she guided me through the entire process. You could tell from the very start she understood her business. She anticipated certain situations and told me ahead of time how to prepare. I would recommend Gretel Howell to anyone I know buying or selling a home. I appreciate all she did for me before , during and after the sale of my home. Hats off to Allen Tate , you are lucky and fortunate to have a professional like Gretel working on your team. Thank you

We recently worked with Gretel on the purchase of our home in Huntersville. We have bought and sold a lot of homes and worked with a lot of Realtors over the years. Gretel has been the most thorough and knowledgeable of them all. I believe her background in construction gives her an advantage. She brought up things we never would have thought of. We completed the purchase of our home while living out of state, but had complete confidence that everything was taken care of for us even though we weren't there. I would highly recommend hiring Gretel as your Realtor!!
Gretel over a span of two years stuck it out with us to find either a house or property in the correct neighborhood. We have purchased property (Sailview, Denver NC) the second year coming into the area from Pittsburgh. Tina and I are so lucky to have stumbled upon Gretel's name using the internet to find a realtor to show us the Lake Norman area. Gretel's knowledge and expert sense of what to do or what to avoid has been a big time saver for us and are now using her knowledge of builders to assist in the contracting for the new home. We respect and admire her forthright approach and does not back down from a tough question. We will be recommending her as we bring more acquaintances to the area.

Gretel Howell is the "best of the best" when it comes to being a superior real estate agent. We have worked with Gretel on four occasions, and each one was perfectly executed. Her attention to detail, and attention to us as customers, was phenomenal on all four experiences. I have heard other realtors say that if they are in competition with Gretel, they will have to "up their game". Gretel is a premier top selling agent every year. I would highly recommend her and would certainly use her on our next purchase!

Our experience with Gretel was professional, timely and extremely personalized. She and her staff took the time to address every concern and guide us through the maze of selling our home. Additionally, they went over and beyond to assist us with other transactions that resulted from the quick sell of our home. There is no doubt that Gretel's marketing plan sold our home in under 30 days on the market. Thank you Gretel.
I was very fortunate to have Gretel Howell represent me in the purchase of my new home. I had very specific needs as a mature woman concerning safety, access to public transportation, access to medical professionals and facilities, closeness of shopping centers, entertainment, and local house of worship. Gretel is a local resident, has served this community a good while, and was very capable of finding a residence with my requirements. Narrowing down the type of home I was looking for, and the price range I required, we went for a short ride and found my 'forever home'!! I am delighted with my purchase and Gretel made the process very effortless. I highly recommend Gretel Howell to represent your real estate purchase.
Gretel is an outstanding agent. She went above and beyond for our family. We have two small children and if we had to bring them along for a walk through or during inspections, she would play withh our children while we could focus on the house and task at hand. She is a wonderful person and very kind hearted. She has your best interest in mind and will do whatever it takes to protect that. Thank you so much Gretel!!
Gretel went above and beyond to ensure our closing happened as planned! I would recommend her to all my friends and family!!
Gretel Howell was awesome throughout my entire experience of trying to relocate in the Cornelius/Huntersville area. She is very knowledgeable in all aspects of home hunting/buying. Gretel found a beautiful townhouse for me that met all my needs. She and her staff guided me throughout the entire process and made the process seem effortless. I would highly recommend Gretel for anyone seeking to buy or sell their home. Thanks Gretel!
I would recommend Gretel to my family and friends without hesitation. Gretel is a professional with much expertise in her field and the entire Lake Norman area. She paid close attention to our specific needs and wants and tailored the search appropriately. Gretel looked at houses for us when we were not able to be there. She also spent entire days with us and our two young children looking at houses. Needless to say, she has the patience of a saint! To top it off, Gretel was fun to work with which made our search that much more enjoyable. Once we decided on a purchase, Gretel maintained laser focus on looking out for our best interests and stayed involved in the entire process through to the closing table. We were so lucky to have found Gretel and you will be too!

It was such a pleasure dealing with Gretel! I never had a problem reaching her with any question or problem. She always returned my phone calls, even on the weekend.. I really feel like we had a good friend working for us! I highly recommend Gretel to anyone who is searching for a home!!! Gretel was with me every step of the way, even helping me pick out all the materials needed to finished the inside of our home.
My husband and I have nothing but great things to say about Gretel and her team. We had been talking about moving for a very long time and we were anxious about what we needed to do to sell our home and find the right home for our family. At our very first meeting, Gretel completely put us at ease. She had done her research - not only on our home, but on the areas that we were looking to move. She guided us through what we needed to do to get our home ready and then Gretel and her team took action. Not only did Gretel sell our home faster than we could have imagined but she found us exactly what we wanted in a new home. She worked diligently to make sure that the entire process went smoothly - from the listing and offers to the inspections, closing and beyond! She was amazing at responding to our questions, following up with our concerns and always making us feel like we were a top priority. We enjoyed our time looking at homes with Gretel and always had fun in the process. She was so patient with us as we narrowed down where we wanted to be in the Lake Norman area and we could not be happier with our purchase. Gretel's professionalism and expertise are exceptional and we would (and do) highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Gretel and her team were wonderful to work with. She brings a great deal of knowledge and a strong network to the process of buying a new home. I was so appreciative of her flexibility and availability from start to finish. Thanks to Gretel's hard work, we found the perfect house!

The service and personal attention we received from Gretel Howell and her entire team was exceptional! She is truly a high-caliber professional. Her knowledge of the local market and negotiating skills were key in ensuring that we received the best deal on our new home. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, we would highly recommend Gretel. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to facilitate the process of finding our dream house. Above and beyond does not begin to express the service Gretel provides for her clients!
Being out of state buying a house in North Carolina, Gretel went way beyond her job description as a realtor and took care of me as a buyer. I would recommend this lady to anyone!
We highly recommend Gretel. She and her staff are wonderful to work with!
