The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy sellers and buyers. They have all been kind enough to give me permission to share their real estate experience with me. Their testimonials and recommendations are so humbling and I am so grateful for being a part of their journey. Not only do I have wonderful clients, but I have made great relationships with them through the real estate process. Thank you so much for your kind words. I am so thankful for your business and friendships.
We just bought our dream retirement home through Gloria. Because of her great negotiating and tactical pricing skills, we won the bidding war in this crazy market.
The whole process was so easy and fast that it took a week for it to sink in that we actually got a dream home for our retirement: perfect location, perfect layout for us, and perfect architectural design for us. It is real. Not a dream. She is extremely personable and pays a lot of attention to details, so we don’t have to worry about anything. She is also very knowledgeable about different neighbourhoods in Chilliwack. So this really helped us to make a quick decision in this crazy market.
After we put down the deposit to complete the sales contract, we immediately phoned our former neighbours (who are very well known in Chilliwack) who recommended Gloria to us, to thank them and to tell them the great news. We are so thankful to them for so strongly recommending Gloria to us. We will no doubt recommend her to anybody who is looking for an agent.
Thank you, Gloria!!!!
Gloria's thorough research and attention to detail gave me all the information I needed to make my purchase with confidence. She took care of me and guided me through every step of the process as I was totally unfamiliar with a real estate purchase. Her negotiation skills are second to none! She is a tenacious advocate for her client. She made me and my desires her number one priority. She made my dreams come true! Now I know what it's like when a Realtor is working for me!
I highly recommend Gloria to anyone looking for a Real Estate Agent. She made the process very easy and seamless! Thank you so much, Gloria!
We thank Gloria so very much for working so hard on our real estate deal. Gloria was pleasant and had a great sense of humour. Coming from Ontario, Gloria worked extra hard due to the distance and time changes. She included our daughters, helped find us a home, did a virtual tour for us, and kept us apprised all the time. She woke up very early just to communicate with us first thing in the morning, and kept our daughters up to speed. No difficult challenges she was faced with stopped her as she was able to overcome those obstacles. She was proactive and kept the deal together, so that we could have a home. She lined everything up for us so we didn't have to. She made it happen! She worked extra hard for us, and we are very thankful for her. We will not hesitate to recommend her to all we know looking for a real estate agent. We wish her all the very best. God bless.

We loved our home in Fairfield Island and finding a Realtor that loved the area too was important to us. Gloria was raised on FFI and appreciates the value of the community closeness like we did! Gloria extended herself and was available first hand any time I needed her. She did a wonderful job in staging and preparing our home for wonderful photos that did my home the justice it deserved. She will work hard for you to get the best dollar and not back down to ensure her client is satisfied. We fell in love with her glowing personality and her positivity! Thank you Gloria for your hard work... our home sold in 7 days and you made the process easy!!

Gloria is amazing to work with! She made our first time house buying experience enjoyable and stress free. She is very knowledgeable when it came to the history as well as specific details regarding the areas around Chilliwack where we finally found the right urban modern home for us. Outside of being our buying agent, what we enjoyed the most was the sound advice she gave us when we were deciding and choosing between properties, and in the end, her advice ultimately helped us decide which house to buy and we couldn’t be any happier with our decision! We appreciate Gloria’s honest realtor perspective on every property we viewed, and she gave us the vibe of it’s not all about making a sale for her, but more on actually helping you find the “right” home for you. And I forgot to say that Gloria gives very good advice for free when it comes to managing finances especially for young first time home buyers as well! Thanks for everything Gloria! - Richard and Kristina S.
From day 1 of meeting Gloria, she has gone above and beyond. Gloria brings a very positive atmosphere when buying/selling, and turns every negative into a positive (especially during the pandemic). Gloria always answered my questions as soon as possible. I can't say enough how hard Gloria works. I will use Gloria for future real estate needs, and recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor.
If you are looking for an experienced, thorough, and hardworking Realtor, I highly recommend Gloria Santa Cruz. When my elderly parents reached out to Gloria about moving, she immediately sent over many listings that were a perfect match to my parents’ needs. She was extremely patient when showing them places, and when they found the perfect match Gloria worked efficiently to get the best deal and moving dates for them. She worked well with the mortgage broker and lawyer to get the deal done within tight timelines and recommended an excellent cleaner and carpet cleaning company to get them ready for the move. Once my parents moved into their new place, Gloria immediately got their former place ready for listing with beautiful staging and had many viewings lined up on the first day. Gloria got multiple offers, and an accepted offer (above asking price!) on my parents’ townhome, within a few days of listing, and ensured the place remained secure and move-in ready for the new owners. Gloria communicated to me (the daughter) throughout the process to ensure I could also help my parents. When my parents were finally settled in their new place, Gloria presented them with a generous housewarming gift that they now enjoy every day. Gloria is thoughtful and works hard, always in the best interest of her clients. She is confident in her ability to find the best fit for her clients’ needs. I will continue to recommend Gloria to all my friends and family as the best choice for their home purchase and sale.
Thank YOU Gloria for your excellent service! My parents are so happy in their new home and it's given me piece of mind knowing they are in a safe place. If my Dad had a computer he would be shouting your praise all over social media!

Gloria was always responsive and attentive during the selling process. She was knowledgeable and supportive during the sale of my home which provided ease of mind for me while navigating through the real estate world.

Gloria was wonderful to work with from start to finish. She was extremely friendly and personable, and was available at any time to happily answer any questions we had. She encouraged and helped us with prepping our home to sell, and went above and beyond with helping us stage the place, even lending us bar stools and some decorations to put the finishing touches on. By the end, we had a beautifully staged home with gorgeous photos, and Gloria negotiated a price that we were very happy with!
When it came to buying, she was again exceedingly helpful, always available to answer questions, make recommendations, and take us to look at places we wanted to see. She was always ready with advice and made sure we were happy with our decisions every step of the way. When we decided to put in an offer, she absolutely went above and beyond, making sure to read all the paperwork thoroughly, and point out and follow up on any issues she found. She worked tirelessly right to the end to make sure she was getting us the best deal possible.
Gloria is sweet, funny, and very tenacious, and she is obviously passionate about helping her clients get the best experience and results possible. We have had a wonderful experience, and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to sell or buy in the Fraser Valley!

Gloria was extremely helpful when selling our townhouse and buying a detached house. She had great advice as far as preparing our place for sale and was very easy to communicate with. I have 3 young children and was feeling overwhelmed- she understood my stress and was there for me. She was down to earth and honest. I could text or call her at anytime and received quick responses. She was great at getting us the most for our townhouse (MUCH more than we had originally thought) and also getting us a good deal on a detached house. I would definitely use her again.

Gloria was recommended to us and was told she was great! They were right! She is skilled, professional, and a very hard worker! She worked many long evenings for us, and did an awesome job! We can't wait to move in to our new home (that she found us - and it's perfect for us)! We have already told all our friends and family about her!
- Kris & Neil
Gloria came highly recommended to me through someone I trust. I had very little to concern myself with during the purchasing process as Gloria made it very painless! I enjoyed having her help me with the purchase and she made the process easy! I know she would take good care of anyone I sent her way!
Gloria is passionate about her job and she is well structured to any extent of solving any problems. We are seniors and she has really done an excellent job of selling our home and helping us purchase our next home! She kept her committments and promises - way, way beyond her promises! She is motivated, fast and gung-ho in every way! She was always on time for appointments, returned our calls and kept us updated and informed throughout the process! We definitely recommend Gloria to anyone looking to buy and or sell!

Gloria lived a lifetime in Chilliwack, and offered her intimate point of view. She gave us an honest version of Chilliwack with a personal touch. Gloria gave us exactly what we were looking for in the budget we had. She even stood up for us when it came to overlooked issues. She was more like family while looking at listings, putting herself in our shoes. Accessing her at almost all hours made us feel important. We are telling everyone about her and her awesome service.

Gloria is an outstanding real estate agent. She is prepared, extremely knowledgeable and a true professional. My parents are seniors and wanted to sell their home, Gloria is the only person I trusted to lookout for their best interest. She made sure they got top dollar for their home and treated them like her own family. My father fell very ill during the process and the empathy she showed demonstrated her ability to humanize the experience and put my parents needs first. I live in another province and even with the time difference, Gloria always kept me up to date. Her work ethic and commitment is second to none. I have very high expectations of the professionals I work with and I would not hesitate to recommend Gloria to anyone looking to sell their home.

I've known Gloria for years and I can truly say no one will work harder for you in helping you find your dream home or in selling yours so you can start the next adventure. Gloria is extremely professional and community minded - she went the distance to make sure my needs were met. Her dedication and love for the business is clear, her sole purpose is to make sure you are happy and that shines through at every step. Gloria made my experience this past year purchasing a home a breeze, her attention to detail allows clients to breathe easier through the process, believe me nothing is ever missed. I would not hesitate to recommend Gloria to anyone. I know that whenever I need a realtor Gloria Santa Cruz will be my realtor of choice.

Working with Gloria from day one was so easy, we fell into a really good friendship and she gave us lots of good advice in order to get the price that we wanted to get for our house. She was available for us at anytime of the day and answered all of our questions immediately. She worked really hard for us during our renovations for preparing to sell, suggesting subcontractors that we needed, and they were amazing and reasonably priced. We listened to all of them and got above asking price within 18 hours of the house going on the market. Gloria Santa Cruz went above and beyond not just being a realtor, she was there every step of the way from beginning to end until after. Not only did she sell our house 18 hours after it went on the market, she was also our realtor that helped us find our brand-new home and was patient with us during the whole process. She was fast and efficient and knowledgable! I couldn't have asked for a better realtor and I will definitely recommend her in the future and use her again.

My husband and me made a big change in our life, by buying another house. For other people it might not be a big deal, but for us it was BIG!!!! We are moving to a gated community from a single house. We decided, it was time to retire the lawnmower.
We cannot say enough about Gloria Santa Cruz. Her Caring, Professionalism and Passion for working for and with us was fantastic. Whenever we had questions, she was always only a phone call away and right away called back.
Way to go Gloria!!!! We couldn’t have accomplished it without you. We will definitely recommend you to others!
Karl and Elisabeth

She has great customer service skills and is very efficient! I highly recommend Gloria Santa Cruz when buying or selling real estate! Thank you, Gloria! ~ Nancy C.
