Gina Larouche PA
As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

Highly likely to recommend
Gina was wonderful!! I cannot say enough positive things about her. We have been working with Gina for almost a year. Gina sold our home in Bradenton, FL in under 1 week and helped us buy our home new home in Bradenton, FL (Grayhawk Landing). I never once felt pushed or rushed to make any decisions. She was very kind with her time and honoring of our wants with our purchase. Gina was very organized and knowledgeable about the many issues that arose with our processes. She took ample time to help us find our "forever home" and we always felt she had OUR best interest at heart. We have been involved in several real estate transactions over the years and I can say that Gina helped make these last 2 ones an enjoyable process. I would definitely use her again and recommend any friend or family to call her.

“Gina, Paul says, and I agree, “You helped us out of a jam.” You do an excellent job of balancing the renters’ and owners’ needs. We especially appreciate, in addition to helping us with former renters’ issues, that you try to find us a special/good/discounted price on maintenance services. In addition, you have a bevy of qualified workers you know and trust to do good work. It is comforting to know there is someone who can be there as eyes and ears for us.
Thank you for all you do.”
DENISE AND PAUL T.
“I would fully recommend Gina as a Property Manager especially when you are an out of state landlord as i am. She is very knowledgeable and has always been prompt to resolve any problems or questions that I have had. It is very reassuring to know there is someone local with the owners interests in mind.
My tenants have always worked well with Gina and each new lease has been very painless over all.”
“Gina sold our home for us in record time and for a price we were happy with, and as we couldn’t travel down to take care of furnishings, she took care of that too. Documenting every step of the way. We felt blessed with her help. We would heartily recommend her to anyone, for anything.”

“Gina, I want to send you a note on the wonderful services i feel you have provided us. I believe you went out of the your way to provide needed direction and advice. I appreciate the help you provided in purchasing, delivering and staging my condo. It is nice to deal with a full service agency, especially one who employs someone of your caliber.
In my first year of ownership, in a down market, you have delivered a quality tenant.I look forward to many more years working together.”

“If everyone could only be so fortunate as I have been to have Gina LaRouche as my leasing agent for my home on Siesta Key. She is always on top of all situations, answers all questions promptly and keeps me advised at all times. As a landlord or potential tenant I would undoubtedly contact Gina and just give her a try. I am sure you will find that she is extremely professional and gets the job done.”
“I had a wonderful experience buying my first home with Gina as my realtor. Being a first time buyer, I really didn’t know what to expect. Gina really went above and beyond what I could have imagined. She took the time to explain everything to me each step of the way. She was very flexible with working around my schedule, and extremely knowledgeable about all the properties she showed me. If I ever had a question she didn’t know the answer to, she found it for me promptly. Gina is very dedicated to her work and was always available by phone or e-mail if I needed anything. After looking at many houses with Gina, she helped me find the perfect one, and I am now a happy homeowner. I would highly recommend Gina to anyone.”
Thanks for everything Gina,
