About Gretchen

After working in the corporate world for 20 years in various upper level management positions, I left to follow my desire of getting back into real estate. While working under the large brokerage of Keller Williams for 7 years, I was consistently one of the top producers in the office, received many awards and recognition, became a certified instructor and a mentor for new agents coming on board. I have been recognized by Texas Monthly in 2012 and 2015, 2016, 2017 and now 2018 for my outstanding performance.  In 2013 I started Let's Sell That Property!, Ellis County's favorite Real Estate radio show.  Let's Sell That Property! is an off the cuff fun show that aired every Tuesday morning from 9:00-9:15am.  It took off with great success.  It is just another way that I found to be an outside of the box agent offering my clients something different.

Working in the corporate world with many international clients and projects, I knew the importance and value of follow up and details. After 7 years of the confines of a large brokerage combined with my corporate world background, I was ready and prepared to take my business to a new level and the opportunity to offer my clients more than ever before. At the end of the day, there is no greater feeling than to know you have made a difference for someone with a job well done.  And the best part is I love what I do!   

If you are ready for something different, give Gretchen at Holmquist & Associates Realty a call.. A different kind of agent, a different kind of company.


Our motto:
�We Are Different And We Know It!�

I truly understand the importance of �listening� to the needs of my clients and ensuring those needs are met.

While I am very tech savvy utilizing the latest technology available to enhance my performance for my clients, I realize that nothing can take the place of good old-fashioned courtesies such as personally answering a phone, promptly returning a call, or meeting face-to-face to take care of my clients.

All clients are equally important whether that be a 1st time home buyer or that couple ready to retire and maybe downsize a bit.

I absolutely love helping families looking for that perfect first new home, as me and my husband, Jarrod, are the parents of three young children. I know first-hand what most concerns families have such as safe neighborhoods, quality schools, and amenities such as parks and playgrounds.

My personal goal is to ensure your real estate experience is a calm and stress free journey from the start of the transaction to closing and beyond.

If you are tired of the same old agents and the same old kind of company, you have come to the right place.

I am a seriously different kind of agent with a seriously different kind of company.
