Ryan Gowdy

Realtor Alain Pinel
Experience the difference – personal ties and relationships turn a property into a home. Warm, professional relationships are a hallmark of the APR experience, and my clients often remark on the quality of my carefully chosen network of financial, legal, logistical and other specialists. The high-quality network that I have fostered extends beyond the Bay Area to an international audience of potential home buyers and sellers through the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and the firm’s luxury home division known as Luxury Portfolio. My personal network combined with APR market tenure and brand identity gives my clients a distinct advantage when buying or selling a home.

My relationships open the door for my clients to be at home anywhere. Where people, homes, opportunity and a bit

If we had to summarize our experience working with Ryan Gowdy in one word it would be “Professional.” If we could use one phrase, it would be “There are no problems; there are only solutions.”

Ryan helped us sell a home that we did not occupy, and that therefore needed a bit of attention to get ready for the market. At every stage in this process Ryan was there; hiring contractors, choosing paint colors, planting trees, and even swapping out cabinet knobs and changing light fixtures. When we discovered a dripping pipe two days before the house was to be listed, Ryan got out his claw hammer and opened up the wall, had a plumber there that afternoon to repair the leak, and then patched the wall himself. When we heard offers, Ryan knew which buyers had been to the house multiple times and were committed to the home. When we went to the closing we learned that Ryan had been to the escrow company at 9 pm the previous evening, just to make sure that all the paperwork was in order. All of Ryan’s hard work paid off for us: the house sold in one week with no contingencies for 20 percent above our asking price.

We have rarely seen anyone, in any profession, with Ryan’s commitment to getting things done, and doing them right. It was a joy to work with him; we would do so again in a heartbeat.

Ryan is the Four Seasons of real estate agents. HIs extraordinary level of service continually amazed my wife and I. Getting our house ready for sale, there were at least a dozen situations he personally managed (without our asking) that normally would have cost $$ with the usual vendor bear hug. He was also incredibly patient and understanding in our new house search. Never any pressure or even hint of being pushed in a direction we did not want to go. His integrity, deep domain knowledge of Los Altos, and professionalism handling both sides of a transaction were constantly in evidence.

I can not recommend Ryan highly enough. He is the trusted ally you are look for to maximize the value of your house and find your next great home.
