Pettit Gilwee is expert at attracting a field of eligible prospective buyers. We had multiple offers over asking price and a contract within a week of the property going on market. Escrow closed within 30 days. Pettit is a pleasure to work with and a top performer.

Pettit made us feel important. She was prompt, accessible and kept us informed. Her recommendations of professionals in the area (inspectors and loan officers) were excellent. We will definitely recommend Pettit to our friends.

I have twenty years in sales and found Pettit a great fit for my needs. Her approach and marketing expertise sets her apart from the many realtors I've bought and sold homes with. It was a pleasure working with her. In addition to having worked with Pettit in a previous marketing position, her consistent sales track record through direct mail kept her top of mind when it came time to sell our house. When we first put our house on the market Pettit acquired multiple buyers for our home back in November. While in escrow the buyers got cold feet and pulled out at the last minute. We regrouped and decided to put it back on in the spring, but we received a call from an interested buyer prior to that and the rest is history. I highly recommend Pettit Gilwee whether you are buying or selling your home.

—John and Colleen Valentine, Roseville CA
  /  May 2016

Very presentable with a good knowledge of our area and the way it could be marketed. From the first encounter we knew Pettit would be a great asset in selling our home. I believe she exceeded even her expectations. Pettit's marketing skill resulted in two offers over our asking price within four days of the listing! Pettit kept us informed throughout the process and went the extra mile to allow us to complete escrow in our new neighborhood. everything was done in a fair and competent manner. It was an excellent experience since everyone was happy with the outcome.


—Gerald and Kathy Alley
  /  May 2016

We could not have been more pleased with Pettit. She was well organized, always available, quick to respond, extremely knowledgable and personable. We probably would not have ended up with the house we chose if it weren't for Pettit, she insisted we see this one because she had a hunch we would love it and we did.


—Kim Nussbaum, Sacramento
  /  March 2016

Pettit was absolutely on top of every phase of my puchase. She was way more enthusiastic than I was about buying a new place and consequently kept me engaged. I listened to her comments about the market, inventories, time of year I was buying and acted on them. Pettit, I think we did good. Thanks so much.

  /  March 2016

Pettit Gilwee was amazing to work with. Our family is new to Sacramento so we didn't even know where to start. Pettit dug deep to understand our needs so she could match us with the perfect home. We started with her showing us areas of town she thought fit our style, what I loved about those tours is how Pettit would show us all the best restaurants and shopping spots. She also would talk us through what roads would make our route easier. Just after one day of house hunting with Pettit, we felt like regular locals! What I'm most thankful for, is the house we chose is one we would not have even had on our radar to look at. Pettit had a hunch we would love it, and we did! We highly recommend Pettit --- she is quick to respond when you reach out, she finds the answers, she's highly organized and she knows the best of the best to help you through every step of the process.


—Kim Nussbaum
  /  February 2016

I felt very confident in having Pettit Gilwee handle my home sale in January 2016. Although she comes off quiet, she is aggressive when she needs to be. She walked me through all phases of the sale, and let me get involved. I would feel good in having Pettit help me in the future. I was turned off by other agents aggressive behavior and Pettit knows how to deal with people at their speed.

Pettit did a great job! We had an initial buyer drop out through no fault of the seller/agent, Pettit handled that transaction well and stayed positive throughout. She was appropriately tough and appropriately flexible to get the deal done.


—Brian & Jayne Annis
  /  October 2015

Pettit Gilwee is a smart and talented lady. I was selling my Uncles house as Trustee of a family Trust. Pettit saved us over $1800 in termite damage repairs by discovering a contract my Aunt had with a pest control company. I needed a 1995 cost basis on the house for tax purposes and Pettit found two sales on the same street in the 1990's. She did everything she said she was going to do and kept me informed at all times. She has tremendous energy and enthusiasm. I don't think you can go wrong if you pick her as your real estate agent.


—Chuck McKenna

My husband and I decided we were going to go for it and purchase our first house! We were referred to a few different realtors from friends who signed me up for their MLS emails and I never heard from again. While at an open house we found, my husband met Pettit Gilwee and gave her our contact information. He told me he met a great realtor and that hopefully she would reach out soon. To our pleasant surprise Pettit reached out that next morning with her information and some details on available properties. We went out looking at some that evening and she whisked us off of our feet working hard to find our dream home. Almost every day she personally emailed us new properties - no automated MLS listing subscription which I loved! We bounced ideas off of each other and raced to be the first to see houses that she knew would be a perfect fit for us. After a few offers that didn't get accepted, she never let us give up hope. She stood by us every step of the way, had answers to all of my questions (and I had a lot!) and in the end, we purchased a house we could only have dreamed of! It is perfect in every way and we are so appreciative that Pettit was able to be by our side and recommend an offer that she knew would stand a chance - even against a cash buyer! Pettit is highly recommended for anyone buying or selling a home! She will go above and beyond and we are so thankful we met her!


—Allison Sinclair
  /  May 2015

It was such a pleasure working with you. Thank you for a wonderful experience as first-time home buyers and for helping us find the perfect property. We know our little family will be happy here for many, many years.


—Lynnae Landberg
  /  May 2015

We closed our rental property in Roseville few days back (March, 2015) and Pettit Gilwee has been extremely helpful to guide us through the whole process. Initially we had lots of questions about Sacramento area in general as we are new to this area (currently living in Bay Area) - Pettit is very patient, resourceful and knowledgeable. She is hard working, detailed oriented, trustworthy and we appreciate her very quick turnaround time for all our requests. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and colleagues. We very much look forward to doing business with her in the future - we know we are in very good hands. Thanks Pettit for everything and wish you the best!

Working wtih Pettit Gilwee was a great experience! I recently purchased my first home and Pettit was extremely helpful in walking me through the home buying process. I found her to be very focused and attentive. She made sure to communicate often on what was happening and I always felt like I was in good hands. I would highly recommend her to anyone else looking to buy a home!


—Joe Pearson
  /  March 2015

I loved working with Pettit Gilwee. She was very patient and not pushy. She made buying my first house by myself very easy! I'm sure I had a lot more restful nights because of her. I will definitely recommend her to anyone and everyone I can.


—Leila Ertel
  /  February 2015

This lovely lady went way beyond the call of duty in helping me purchase my home. She was there for me at all times, seeing to it I understood everything, but also seeing to it that I was not taken advantage of. I never once saw in her frustration at my constant pestering of questions, my not so smooth personality, or my blunt personality. She made a true and accurate effort to know me and my needs. A true professional that made the stressful act of pruchasing a home tolerable and successful. I would recommend her to anyone that is seeking, or even contemplating, a future home purchase. I am thrilled to state that I have found a friend for life!


—Dany Hughart

Buying a home, in general, is a nerve-wracking experience...when buying your first home it is a TERRIFYING experience. I was referred to Pettit Gilwee, from a friend, and she made buying my first home a little less terrifying. From our very first meeting she immediately put me at ease and made me EXCITED about buying my first home. She's a great listener and prided herself on understanding what my needs are and then working with me to find the place that's right for me. Pettit is a wealth of knowledge; and what I, also, appreciate is that if she doesn't know the answer to my question(s) then she will do the research and follow-up with me within 24 hours or we'll speak with someone who specializes with "xyz" to find out the answer to my question. I absolutely LOVE the fact that she knows how close the loop in a prompt and efficient manner. This is my first home purchase with Pettit, but it will certainly not be my last. I very much look forward to doing business with her in the future. Thank you, Pettit, for assisting me in finding my dream home (even after I felt all hope was lost).

This was my first time buying a home, and I feel so lucky to have had a friend refer me to Pettit Gilwee at Lyon Real Estate in Sacramento! Pettit made the whole experience more enjoyable, and she is incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. I really appreciated her advocating for me, and helping ease my anxieties through the escrow process, and everything was made easier with docusigning and working with my schedule. I knew early on just the house I wanted, and she strategized with me to put in a sensible bid at just the right time. I LOVE my new house, and I couldn't have done all of this without her. THANK YOU, Pettit!!! I will certainly refer you to my friends!
