My husband and I have used Gina and Shawn for the sale and purchase of several homes and it never seizes to amaze me how they always deliver.
Their priorities are our priorities and they make what is a stressful process into a pain free transition. This last time we sold and bought a new home all while being abroad for the holidays and they went above and beyond making sure everything was taken care of. They are always at inspections and honestly care about their client. I'm also always impressed by how incredibly knowledgeable they both are and always have the right answers.
I have the highest respect and admiration for both of them not only as real estate agents, but now good friends. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!!
Why are they the best?
-Top experience and credentials
-Constant communication with customer
-They are both black belts when it comes to negotiating.
I know this because we have been able to get our top house choice every time!
Finding a good realtor team is like finding a good doctor or a mechanic. You get nothing but the best in every detail. Gina and Shawn are the best quality people who are making an impact not only in their industry but also making he world a better place. Check this out:

When we decided to move to the East Bay, we came to know of Gina Piper through a work colleague. The moment we met Gina in her office, we felt we were in really good hands. Gina knows Pleasanton in and out, the neighborhoods, the schools, the pros and cons of even the individual streets. The most important of all is her connections and network with other agents which is a great boon to have in a sellers market. She was very patient in answering all our questions and we were made sure that we had all the possible context around a property to help us make the best decision. Since most of the houses in Pleasanton are relatively old compared to the neighboring towns, one of the most crucial elements in moving forward with a property is inspections and disclosures. There comes Shawn Ferrel, who is an expert with all aspects of home building and helped us with answering all questions about soil, roof, foundation, paint, pools, landscape, inspections etc. Gina and Shawn offer a complete package. We landed our property in Pleasanton with both their expertise, help and support.

Gina Piper!!! If I could give more stars I would. My husband and I bought a house a little over a month ago. From the first time meeting with Gina she was really interested and focused on what the needs of our family were. We threw together a few must haves and a couple for the wish list! We shopped around in the office and then set up a date to go out for open houses. Gina was so honest and well prepared. Every question was answered, and we felt a sense of trust right away. We placed a bid the first day out for open houses. We were coached so well with her throughout the entire process. And our offer was accepted!! Our house was on the market for one week. She called us with the news, the house was ours!! What is one of the most stressful events you go through in life was such a fun, exciting and memorable time! Thanks to Gina and her team!! We love our new home. I will be recommending her and her team to our family and friends.
"Amazing, absolutely AMAZING! We were new to Pleasanton and needed a realtor who knew Pleasanton really well. And that is Gina. She is a wealth of information when it comes to Pleasanton. Gina and Shawn are a wonderful team. They were always available to see homes or when we needed advice. They also made sure we didn't settle for a house - it showed how much care they put into their clients.
We purchased our home over the holiday period. Even though this is a busy period for everyone, they were still available. Even on Christmas Day! Now that was something we didn't expect! Through escrow period, they helped us get quotes for work to be done. They were at the house with the contractors as we were in another city.
Gina and Shawn helped us find the perfect house. It literally ticked every box. If you are looking for a realtor, stop right now and call them. You will be in the best hands!"
"I have known many realtors but none have caught my attention as much as Gina. I have had the pleasure of working with her on marketing for her listings and I have to say she is above the rest in her ideas and commitment to her clients.
Gina likes to think outside of the box and be unique in marketing her listings. Recently she marketed a listing by using drone footage as well as taking pictures of people actually interacting in the house. It was so well done that the house sold almost immediately when released.
Personally, I have known Gina for quite some time and she does what she says and her is integrity is stellar! I highly recommend her if you are buying or selling a home. I know I will be using Gina the next time I am in the market."
"Terrific service from Gina and her team of professionals. She came to us on a recommendation from a friend who was very pleased with her service - a great recommendation! We now pass her name to our friends and colleagues coming to the area.
We were new to the area and Gina provided an outstanding market overview - including specific homes that were within our price range. Even though my husband and I were out of town for most of the transactions - Gina made it all run smooth - closing the deal long distance through phone and email.
I trust her judgment on home value - she politely steered us in the right direction and was very patient to answer all of our questions. Gina handled the closing process very smoothly - she knows the right folks and anticipates the next step very well.
Gina is very proud of her hometown roots and she is extremely passionate, and involved, in bettering this community. She is an expert at the Pleasanton area and surrounding Tri Valley and Bay Area communities. This is an easy one - if you are looking for an honest, hardworking professional - call Gina."
"Gina sold my high-end residence in the exclusive Pleasanton community of Golden Eagle Estates, receiving multiples offers during the first open house, and at an exceptionally high price/sq. ft. for the area. Gina's comprehensive marketing and preparation contributed heavily to the success, including fantastic drone-aided videos highlighting the entertainment lifestyle the property. From marketing strategy to post-sale support, a stellar job all around. I highly recommend Gina for properties of distinction."
"I have worked with Gina for over a decade and can comfortably say she is one of the most honest, caring and hardworking individuals in real estate. You only get one chance to pick the right person to help make one of the biggest financial decisions you will encounter in your life - reaching out to Gina would be a great decision!"
"We used Gina & Shawn to purchase our first home recently. She and Shawn were both very easy to work with and very responsive in communications with us. Gina works more on the sell-side of the business and Shawn on the buy-side, so most of my interaction was with Shawn, who was very professional and had lots of good, informative input for us about house conditions and their potential for fixing up/remodeling.
As a team, Gina and Shawn were able to help us close on our home without any hitches. So, our first-home-buying experience turned out to be fairly easy. I would recommend them to any friends who ask for realtor recommendations"
"We recommend Gina HIGHLY and without reservation! From the very start she was attentive, exceptionally professional, listened well and was so pleasant. She was accessible all the time and was responsive, even at 10:00 pm at night. Not only was she an accomplished, knowledgeable realtor but she had keen insights into the history of the Pleasanton real estate market. She was clearly respected by fellow agents and that seemed to stem from her integrity and breadth of experience.
We made a couple of offers and felt we were well guided by Gina. When a deal didn't go through, she was so supportive and sensitive to our disappointment. She remained hopeful, with wise counsel, "the right house will come!" We were set on a specific area and she did everything to accommodate our request. She also showed us a property, based on what she knew about us, in a different area. That turned out to be the PERFECT property. There were some issues to work out with the seller's realtor and Gina maneuvered the conflict with exceptional grace, business acumen and ended up negotiating an outstanding deal for us. We couldn't be happier; we wake up every day in our dream home. She is wonderful!"
"Gina is nothing short of amazing. She sold my home last summer. She is very customer oriented and extremely knowledgeable about selling homes in this region. I have dealt with other realtors in the past, so I know a professional when I see one.
Gina consulted with me and helped me come up with the right price for my home. Once she had an idea as to what I wanted for my home, she set out to make it happen. She suggested I replace my old tile floor for a newer look. She staged the home at no cost to me. She predicted we would have multiple bidders and that I would most likely get more than my asking price. All of the above happened and the home sold in 4 days. I attribute all that to Gina. She also went well beyond by helping me secure house cleaners, painters, etc. to touch up the home.
P.S. Gina is a tough negotiator and a strong advocate for her clients. One would have thought that she was actually selling her own home. That's how much she cares."
"We are happy and relieved to say that within the last 2 months, we have both closed on the sale of our home and on the purchase of another home, and I'm very thankful to Gina and her team for helping to make it happen. From our first meeting, I could tell Gina and Shawn were very personable and professional, and I looked forward to working with them.
The staging and professional photography were included with our home sale, and they did a fantastic job making our home look even more beautiful, and I know they helped us to get the most value out of our home. Shawn was always very courteous and helpful when meeting with us to show us homes and giving his insight into potential properties. Whenever I had a question or concern, I'd promptly get a response from either Gina or Shawn. I never felt pressured at all during the whole process which is something else I appreciated.
Our home sale and new home purchase went by so quickly, and we're extremely grateful to Gina and her team for providing us excellent service and helping get into a beautiful home in our first-choice area within Pleasanton. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend anyone to Gina for their real estate needs. Thank you again!"
"Given the extremely low inventory, we never thought we would be able to purchase a home in the area. Gina Piper found us the perfect home! Given her many years of experience, Gina was excellent in educating us on California real estate practices. Gina was responsive to questions and is also very knowledgeable in the complex real estate transactions. Gina went above and beyond in recommending top-notch professionals for inspections and others wherever needed, even after we closed. Her professionalism, passion, and continuous follow through makes her truly the very best! I highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for the most Outstanding Real Estate Professional."
