Growing up, I used to love looking at houses with my Mom – we lived in the same house my entire childhood, but never tired of poking around the brick Colonials in Erdenheim, the Wissahickon schist homes in Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill, and the stately shaded classics in Wyndmoor. We’d admire wide plank floors and whisper about peeling paint and loose shingles. Coming home, heads full of ideas, we’d translate the best of what we’d seen into our own home. In the years that followed, I never lost my interest – keeping on top of home design trends, the market, and local neighborhoods. After marrying my wonderful husband in 2016, and experiencing the home selling and buying process for myself, (4 times! What were we thinking!?), I realized that I could turn my passion into a career.
At the end of the day I love to unwind by playing fetch with my puppy, tending my garden, or enjoying a glass of wine with my husband on our patio. We spend most of our time at home these days and are so thankful to be in a house and neighborhood we love. Without an experienced agent by our side through selling, building, selling again, and buying our current home, we would have felt lost. With my background of over ten years in HR, I love to get to know my clients to better understand what motivates them. From there, I work tirelessly to meet and exceed my clients’ expectations and usher them through the sometimes confusing and stressful home buying and selling process.
A native to Chestnut Hill, I am an expert in the Northwestern neighborhoods of Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs of Montgomery County and the Main Line. In my free time, I love to sing, stage manage, and party-plan with the Savoy Company of Philadelphia. I am passionate about home design and gardening, and have loved updating our brick Colonial in Flourtown. Follow along on my adventures @whitneygelrodhomes.
