“We were so pleased at how Linda and Gayle took care of everything with the sale of our mom’s home. It can be challenging to handle these types of transactions from a distance, and we felt fully supported and taken care of every step of the way! Thank you, Linda and Gayle. ***** - 5 stars!”

Seltzer Family


"Gayle and Linda are outstanding realtors!  They are great communicators, extremely attentive and were easily reachable during the entire process.  We have bought and sold many homes, and we have never encountered realtors who are as professional and knowledgeable as them, plus they are a joy to work with.  We highly recommend Gayle and Linda!

Deanna and Jim McGee

"We want to express our deep appreciation to Linda and Gayle for all the high-quality time and attention you both devoted to helping us sell our home.  Your combination of professionalism with warmth and friendliness made the process as smooth and painless as it possibly could have been.  It’s no wonder you were recommended so highly!"

"Our family wanted to extend our gratefulness to Linda Novick and Gayle Pietras for the quick response in selling my father’s home in Sun City PD. It took only a month and the process couldn’t have been more smooth. From the initial listing to when the escrow papers were signed, they have communicated every week in detail what was happening with his property. Moving our father out-of-state to be closer to family was a difficult process, but they were gracious and extremely professional in getting the job done. Even though we all live far away from the property, it felt like we were right next door. They made us feel comfortable and involved from the minute my father signed the listing with them. We would highly recommend using both of these realtors without hesitation."

The Butkus Family

"It is us who should be thanking the both of you for taking care of everything that had to be done to prepare the house, walk us through the sales process, and handling all the Docusigns, emails, text messages, and phone calls necessary to make the sale happen and finally close escrow.  Your inherent addiction to taking care of your customers is overwhelming and not the norm in business practices today.  You both go above and beyond.  You have our most sincere gratitude."

“Linda and Gayle handled the sale of my parents’ Sun City home.  They were very professional and thorough with every aspect of the listing.  They provided guidance for staging the house and referrals for work that needed to be done.  We were out of the country when escrow closed and, as promised, they took care of everything.  We couldn’t have been happier with our choice of agents.”

Diane and Jim Christianson

"Linda Novick and Gayle Pietras showed us multiple homes in both Sun City Palm Desert and Sun City Shadow Hills, making a tough choice between the two communities a bit easier.  They worked, as a team, to coordinate a long-distance, multiple escrow situation, and make the whole thing a pain-free process.  We sold our home in Santa Clarita, and bought our home in Sun City, all while spending the summer on the coast of Oregon.  We’ve been through numerous escrows in our lives, but this was, by far, the easiest, thanks to these seasoned, knowledgeable realtors!"

Steven Brooks and Thomas Myers


"Gayle Pietras and Linda Novick are premium professionals. I live half way across the country and was not able to take care of all the many details of selling my mother`s house in Sun City. Not only did they manage the routine issues that realtors are usually responsible for, they handled everything I could not. They stayed on top of things and kept me informed along the way.  These two make a great pair and made my life much easier. And for that, I am very grateful. Thank you, Linda and Gayle."

"The Brady`s recently decided to downsize their home here in Sun City.  We selected realtor Linda Novick to handle our sale and the purchase of a smaller home.  Linda, and her partner, Gayle Pietras, worked extremely hard on our behalf.  Linda not only sold our home of 15 years, but represented us in locating our new home.

Linda was very diligent in her representation of our needs.  She was positive, yet aggressive...she took the time to show us what houses were available to match our needs. Linda worked well with both the sellers and the buyers.

When it came time to purchase our new home, Linda took care of everything in a most professional, no-nonsense way.  The Brady`s have, and will continue to, recommend Linda to anyone who is in need of a quality real estate expert. She knows her business and is a pleasure to work with."

"The only thing that is constant is change.  We hope the change in branding will be exciting and wonderful for you.  Bennion and Deville talk of improving the customer experience, but it is hard for us to imagine how anyone or business group can improve on the high standards you have always provided.  What their mission statement should be is "we will encourage our agents and staff to reach the high level of performance set by Linda Novick.”   You have set the bar extremely high and if the rest of the staff even comes close to that achievement, future success is guaranteed.”

Sandy and Dick


"My husband and I can`t say enough about the care and expertise that Linda gave in the selling of our home.    We were fortunate to have an offer in a week so it took all of her professional work and attention to guild us through  all the complicated paperwork and decisions that had to be made.   Her knowledge of the different contacts that had to be set up for minor repairs would never happened as smoothly as they did without her being right there and getting it done promptly.  Linda helped us through a trying time and we do so appreciate her as not only an excellent realtor but a wonderful friend."
Dick and Martha Taylor

"Linda Novick was recommended by a mutual friend.  During the entire transaction she never presumed that the relationship should color the quality of the professional service she provided.  When I contacted her she asked pertinent questions about what I wanted and did not want in a house, and the price range we were interested in.  When we met in SCPD, she onlyw showed us houses in our price range.  We were impressed that Linda did not attempt to guide us into more expensive houses.  She made it clear that the process of finding a suitable house would take several month.

We bought on the second meeting several weeks later.  Linda guided us through th eprice negotiation with finess and did not try to rush the negotiation to nail down the sale. 

We had already booked a trip to Europe and need a twenty day escrow.  Linda made it seem effortless.  She promptly answered all texts and telephone messages and patiently and clearly andswered all technical questions.After closing we learned that Linda sweated blood and tears pursuing a distracted seller to ensure that we closed on time.  Well Done!!"
