We had the best experience working with Gillian!

She was great during the search process as she gave us a lot of options to consider that were all within the parameters of what we were looking for. Once we made a decision, the negotiation process was extremely smooth. We found a property much faster than we expected so she helped tremendously by recommending a lender that was also awesome to work with. We live 300 miles away, so really needed to rely on Gillian for anything that needed to be done locally and she totally delivered. Our escrow actually closed in less than 30 days! The whole process ended up being way more fun than we ever imagined and we felt very lucky to have worked with Gillian. We highly recommend working with her!

Gillian helped my partner and I purchase a 1 bedroom condo in Mammoth.

This was our first time through the home buying process and Gillian was very helpful walking us through everything. She listened to what we were looking for in a property and helped us end up with a place that we are very excited about. We really appreciated her knowledge of the different condo complexes in town and the local market. We came in from out of town for a weekend and Gillian showed us as many available properties as she could. While none of these places were the right one for us, after the weekend Gillian had a really good sense of what we wanted and was quick to let us know when a place that fit our needs came on the market and gave us a video tour. She helped us navigate the offer process and kept everything moving to close on time, even with a shorter closing period requested by the buyer. Throughout the whole process we felt that Gillian really had our backs. We would not hesitate to work with her again and would enthusiastically recommend her to a friend.

Nicole is the best!

She came highly recommended by a friend, and now we can recommend her too! Nicole helped us find the perfect home for our needs. She really listens to her buyers and also knows the area so well. We wouldn’t hesitate to work wither her again!!

We contacted Gillian on our way to Mammoth and she met with us that night.

She had multiple properties lined up for us to visit based on our preferences. We found our townhome that weekend , made an offer and it was excepted. She made the process simple and painless!

Janice Stanley

Let me start by saying that I met Gillian years before I ever imagined buying my first vacation home, and while we would meet in passing or run into each other at lodges, she always carried herself impeccably, came across as a very smart and diligent hard worker.

Finally there came a point in my life where my successes granted me an opportunity to pursue more time in my favorite place, Mammoth Lakes. I called a couple realtors in the area from googling and found myself in a bit of a pit, found that they weren't helpful or responsive. I then came across Gillian's name, instantly recognizing it(the spelling obviously), I followed up with her and it was one of the smarter choices I've made. She had a hands on approach in making sure I got what I wanted from a house perspective, but also realized I didn't have time to do any leg work, so she took it upon herself to do everything during the search, purchase, and navigating any BS that came along during the absolute mess of paperwork. It was quick and painless, I trusted her so much that I actually bought my place sight unseen because she went to listings and shoot me videos and pictures, then later discussed on the phone what I liked and didn't care for. Years later I naturally went right back to Gillian when it was time to move on from that property and within a short time period she already found a buyer and we closed on time like clockwork. Its imperative to engage with clients on numerous levels, and Gillian literally nailed it on every level. There isn't a thing I would change about my purchase and subsequent sale, and no surprise that she always exceeded expectations because she's been in Mammoth for a long time, understands what it takes, and uses that to her advantage in making sure I was absolutely delighted along the way.

Mark S.

We are so happy we chose to work with Gillian in buying our condo in Mammoth Lakes.

She is incredibly knowledgeable about the local area, market, and ins and outs of buying property up here. Throughout the entire process she was responsive, helpful, and professional, and she helped us tremendously with a few tricks to help make our offer more competitive and ultimately have it accepted. We strongly recommend working with Gillian if you're considering purchasing in Mammoth Lakes!

Iain M.

I have had the pleasure of working with Eric Leach for the last three months.

He helped me sell the property of my deceased father. He is resourceful, has solid field knowledge, and was very transparent throughout the process. He will do his best according to your expectations. Very professional.

K. Curtis

Gillian is the best!

She made the whole process of buying a condo in Mammoth more seamless than my wildest dreams. She’s knowledgable, prompt, responsive, and an all around lovely human. To top it all off, she also made wonderful recommendations for other professionals in the industry (financing, home inspection, contractors) who were similarly wonderful. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

Cameron S.

Valerie was helpful from the beginning of the process to the very end.

She stayed with us and helped us when the negotiations got a little tough. She followed up on every aspect and kept us posted as the process went along. She was enthusiastic and was willing to go the extra mile.

Pouya Bahrami

Gillian is the kind of agent everyone dreams of having, yet never can seem to find.

She's not pushy, yet is on top of everything. Professional, Personable, Organized and Patient! I had a particularly difficult situation in which 3 properties had to close in sync. She was so efficient, even though I was 6 hours away. All the paperwork, walk throughs and inspections were done on time. Everyone she recommended was highly rated and professional. She works with amazing people, and treats every transaction as if it was her own. From start to finish, Gillian went out of her way (way out of her way!) to help me sell one property and move to the other. I first met her when i was trying to walk to town in a sub zero snowstorm/ice. She pulled over and gave me a ride - i called every realtor when i decided to sell until i finally found her. The only crisis was on my end. I sent a package that got caught in the UPS/USPS loop. Since it was a piece of flooring needed ASAP, it was crucial that it got to Mammoth. Unfortunately, securing that particular piece of flooring was like finding a mars rock! I finally found it and sent it to the unit i sold. Somehow it never got there and was returned to me about 4 weeks later. Sent it USPS the 2nd time and there was another issue with it! The new owners were anxious (understandably) and we couldn't find the darn piece. Finally it showed up at the Post Office! At the time I was dealing with a family crisis and lost my temper with her on the phone. It was totally my fault and I still cannot believe I was so rude. She was very nice and sweet. I am probably the worst client she dealt with - yet she was overly kind and professional. Truly an outstanding agent and person. Gillian deserves more than 5 stars, as she is a rare gem in a community full of realtors!

We greatly enjoyed working with Jake.

He is very knowledgeable of all Mammoth properties and can provide insight on which units are the best value and the surrounding circumstances of why they are depending on your personal needs and objectives. Jake is great at following up, very personal, helpful and always very quick to answer his phone or reply via email. He assisted us all the way through the negotiation, provided excellent referrals for the home inspections which helps us dodge a $3,000 plumbing issue as we negotiated that repair in the offer. After the sale closed, Jake has been just as helpful for follow up questions and assistance. Thank you for everything Jake! Call Jake you wont be disappointed!

Barry Rothstein

Eric did a great job in our recent purchase in Mammoth.

He was very attentive, responsive and also has a great network of professionals to assist in the transaction.

G. Ward

Eric is patient and willing to answer all your questions.

Hes easy to talk with and hears what you say. He was willing to show us several options within our criteria and was knowledgeable about each unit. He was never pushy , and stays in touch giving updates every step of the way. He made the experience very comfortable. I would highly recommend using Eric as your realtor!


We purchased a home in Mammoth Lakes with Eric in October, 2022.

From our initial inquiry onward, Eric was helpful without being pushy. Throughout the process he was quick to respond (even when out-of-town), clearly communicated possible next steps, and thoroughly responded to all of our questions. Eric has extensive knowledge of the Mammoth market and was well-attuned to our very particular and somewhat unusual objectives. He's a great communicator and expert at moving the process along. He's eager to share resources from zoning maps to lists of vendors. We recommend him without hesitation!

Hilary H.

He's responsive, candid, professional, and enjoyable to work with.

He really knows the town and went above and beyond in every way. He was especially helpful with some of the little stuff, such as finding other resources (vendors, cleaning services, etc.)


Gillian and Valerie were attentive to our needs.

Although we used the online sites to find places they found one that wasn't currently listed. Very knowledgeable on the local market which was invaluable.

Greg D. Lucas

Valerie did a great job in helping us sell our condo in Mammoth.

It was sold very quick without any complications. She communicates well and was on top of every detail. Highly recommend her as your realtor.

Allen Chan MD

Gillian is an absolute rockstar.

After some phone and email discussions, she was able to narrow in on exactly what we wanted in just 2 hours of seeing places with us. It was amazing. And then, when our offer didn't win for the first place we wanted, she dove in and turned over every stone until a great option came up which turned out to be even better than the original home. And since we weren't in town at that time due to COVID, she was able to work with us over video calls and do whatever was needed to make sure we could make an informed decision. I had such trust that she would steer us in the right direction and she absolutely did. We could not be happier with our new home or with our experience with Gillian!

Shannon W.

We hired Gillian Parrish to help us find and purchase the perfect condo for us remotely in a crazy real estate market during Covid-19.

I cannot say enough how pleased we were with the level of service we received under super difficult circumstances with a uncooperative long-term tenant. Gillian is a true professional and ethical business person. She is super responsive and helpful.

Cheryl T.

From the first call, Gillian approached us like a good friend invested in our best interest.

Because she knows her community and market so well, she offered fresh and unique insights and we learned so much from her. She's honest, candid, and supportive. After one day with her we knew exactly what to go for. Her support and diligence stayed consistent at every step of the process. There are a lot of realtors in this area and we were not local. Gillian definitely stood out from the rest. We are so grateful that we connected with her and went with her representation!

Cameron S.

Working with Gillian on the purchase of our condo was great.

She is very knowledgeable regarding the details of purchasing a vacation home. She knows the area well and steered us to the right properties based on our needs. If she wasn't sure about something, she researched it and got back to me rather quickly. She also took care of some of the minor fixes in our condo, which was very helpful. Gillian was never late for our numerous listing visits and she followed all protocols. She was always looking to make the right deal for us in this crazy market. I would not hesitate recommending Gillian to anybody looking or selling a property in Mammoth Lakes. Thanks, Matt M.

Erika M.

Eric and Valerie are great to work with.

They work hard to market the real estate they represent.

Florene Trainor

Gillian was a superstar in helping me through my first home purchase.

She was available at all hours to answer every question and did a lot of hand holding to get my through the cold feet periods. Buying a home is a huge decision and I'm glad I went with someone who will go the extra mile to make sure everything is taken care of. I'll definitely use her if I'm lucky enough to buy a second place in Mammoth!

Andrea S

Eric knows the Mammoth area so well and was a great help as we navigated a purchase and then needed to find contractors and others to help us with some repairs and updates the property needed.

He was always responsive and would highly recommend him to anyone considering a purchase in Mammoth Lakes.


I could not be more happy with Gillian Parrish as my agent on the purchase of my condo in Mammoth!

Her advice, promptness, responsiveness, and knowledge of the area is unparalleled. Her local experience in Mammoth had my offer accepted within a day of submitting to the selling agent. From the moment we first connected to the final touches of my move in she was ready and willing to help. She made the whole buying experience seamless and easy for me even down to waiting at the condo for the internet/cable installation to be set up. I am incredibly grateful that I had the opportunity to work with her, and I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend her services. Thank you so much, Gillian!

Jen K

This is my second time working with Josh and I couldn’t be happier.

Josh is easy to work with and he will work diligently to get the job done. He has great local knowledge and can help provide insight into potential areas that would work for you. If you’re looking for a realtor who cares about you and your family, Josh is your guy. Friendly with a heart of gold.

Nick Bianchini

My wife and I were extremely fortunate to have Nate as our realtor!

There's something natural about working with Nate that didn't make the process feel like a transaction, but instead made it feel like he was welcoming us to town. Nate was patient as we searched for a home in Mammoth and knowledgeable about the town and different neighborhoods. He worked with our schedule, and was very responsive throughout the process. He guided us through closing, answering numerous questions, all with an upbeat, positive attitude. If there was something Nate didn't know he found out and responded quickly. He fought for us and was willing to push the seller's agent on documents when needed, and made what could have been a very stressful process very streamlined. We had a dependable, trustworthy resource in Nate and would gladly work with him again or refer him to anyone interested in owning a home in the area!

Connor Botkin

I have to say Gillian Parrish was the most professional, hard working realtor agent I have ever worked with period!

! Gillian lined up the process step by step in emails and phone calls when buying my property in Mammoth. Any questions I had she answered promptly and with clear correspondence. I highly recommend Gillian, she is the only agent I will use. Thank you

Christian H.

I first met Jake back in 2020.

I called him really out of the blue looking for a possible vacation home in Mammoth. During a casual trip up there I met Jake in person with my family and he showed us a few properties. I liked Jake immediately because not only was he knowledgeable, he was patient and probably most important ....authentic. I never felt like we he was trying to pressure us into buying or doing anything we weren't comfortable with. He did buy a place during that very vacation trip in 2020. His professionalism, kindness and knack for always going beyond the call of duty led us to use him again 4 years later when we decided to sell the property. Always easy to get a hold of, his professional attributes and character were even more important and impressive during the selling process. We sold in a week. I would HIGHLY recommend Jake Wallace as a real estate agent. He is excellent.

Sean Byun (CEO)

Eric was great resource for the Mammoth area as we were shopping for a condo.

Once we found a place, he was always responsive and went the extra mile to help us through escrow.


Josh went above and beyond as our agent.

He made sure that we were comfortable with all aspects of the sale of our property. He made us feel like family and treated us with respect and integrity. I highly recommend Josh to represent you in all of your real estate needs.

Kari Aileen Bianchini

Gillian is a fantastic realtor.

She was my agent for a condo purchase in Mammoth. She's knowledgeable, thoughtful, creative and determined. She worked closely with me to unerstand my needs and challenges and ushered the purchase from start to a very satisfying conclusion. I hope this is just the begining of my real estate transactions in beautiful Mammoth and I look forward to working with her again.

Yana B

Nicole was outstanding, and we were glad to have her in charge of selling our second home here in Mammoth.

Even with all of the construction going on in our neighborhood and the interest rate increases just after we listed, we were impressed with Nicole's fantastic attitude, and we felt that she would be the right person to find the right buyer. Sure enough, she did! We highly recommend Nicole to be your real estate pro. Her local knowledge is impressive, her communication is excellent, and her attention to detail is second to none. She never lost faith, even with the market slowing down. We are grateful to have worked with her and definitely will again. Thank you Nicole! ??

Derek Sample

Eric represented me as the buyer of 2 properties and seller of 2 properties.

All 4 transactions totaling some $2m, he displayed utmost professionalism, quick turnaround, and proactive behavior. He delivered accurate information in a timely fashion without sugarcoating, and guided strategy and tactics adeptly. He knows his market and did great marketing. He also excelled at the more tedious paperwork, contracts, negotiations and escrow minutia. He is without a doubt an indispensable addition to your real estate team.


Eric was an excellent resource as we were looking for a condo in Mammoth.

He knows the area so well and once we were in escrow he went above and beyond to not only help us close, but also to identify vendors and contractors to help us with upgrades. Would highly recommend him for any future transactions.



Leach and his team were on it from day 1! Very responsive with quick feed back on units available. I was in the market for a condo .very competitive, Leach and his team guided me through the process for a Win! Finally was able to pull through with a purchase after weeks of searching and putting in multiple offers. Honest and patient they took the time to show units at moments noticed. Much appreciated for him and his team! Eric leach and associate Valerie Gaxiola kicked a**!!!"

Scott McWatters

Gillian Parrish was our realtor in the purchase of our first mammoth condo.

She is a consummate professional. My husband has worked with several realtors and, from the start, he was pleasantly surprised and impressed with Gillian's receptivity and quick response to our requests for info. If we needed to see a place, within hours, Gillian would have gone to the condo, phone videoed, and sent us a full walk-through. Gillian was very knowledgeable about all things "condo" and Mammoth. She knew the reputation of many HOA's and could speak to benefits and disadvantages of each. If youre needing a realtor in Mammoth, I highly recommend Gillian Parrish.

Nancy C.

Nate was the absolute best agent I could ask for.

I recently made my first purchase and Nate was very informative, fast-acting, and very thorough during the entire process from start to finish. Would highly recommend Nate to anyone looking to purchase in the Mammoth Lakes, CA area; he's lived here for a long time and very knowledgeable of the market.

Charles Evans Jr

Eric is top notch to work with for real estate needs!

We have worked with Eric to purchase and sell a few Mammoth Lakes properties now over the years. He is dedicated to helping his buyers and sellers accomplish their goals, and we highly recommend him!


Tracie White is an amazing relator!

She is highly focused on finding your perfect home! I was looking for a very specific location and she went above and beyond to keep her eyes out for my dream spot. She was on it during the entire process. Tracie is available to her clients and communicates every part of the process in great detail. Through the whole experience, even up to the very day of escrow and beyond, she was very supportive to ensure that I was comfortable in my new home. Thank you Tracie!

Karina Gerger

Professional, knowledgable, thorough, patient, and always available!

Gillian is a standout agent in Mammoth! She is diligent and always made us a priority in the buying process. She worked with us for months to find the right place, and even through our indecisiveness, she always provided a list of options that fit our needs. We ended up finding the perfect condo and Gillian was incredibly helpful!

Kimmy B.

Shawn is an amazing realtor.

He made the purchase of our home in Mammoth easy and seamless with the sellers and their rental program. Highly recommend?

Trey Robertson (Homeowner)

Gillian is the best realtor we have ever worked with.

She is knowledgeable, reliable and very pleasant. She went above and beyond in every step of the way even after escrow closed. She helped us getting rid of a lot of old furniture that came with the unit without hesitation. We highly recommend Gillian so look no further if you need someone to help you with your next real estate purchase.

Zoe F.

We had been searching for a home in Mammoth for a few years.

We even lost hope of finding any property when another realtor (Mammoth Sierra Properties) tried to fraudulently represent a property as 3200 sq ft when in fact it was only 2600 sq ft of livable space. We were a little jaded from the experience. But working with Eric Leach at NextHome since last year changed things around for us. Eric was very genuine, and was always at the helm to answer every little question regardless of time and day. He worked tirelessly on our Mammoth home purchase. He stayed on top of things, kept seller's agent on their toes, and was always one step ahead even with our lender's mishaps. Even during his out of country family vacation at the end of our escrow, Eric made himself available despite the 9 hour time difference. Eric was simply great. We are grateful for the representation and thorough handling of the transaction. You'd be in great hands working with Eric Leach and his staff at NextHome.

We've worked with Brandee on several real estate transactions, and she continues to provide an amazing service.

For our recent transaction, she provided tips on maximizing the sales price, took great photos (including a virtual walk through), and helped us negotiate the 5 purchase offers we received within the first 24 hours. In the end, we accepted an all cash offer $20K above asking. We were ecstatic, and will certainly utilize her services for our next transaction.


Eric was the best real estate agent I have ever worked with .

.. and there's been a few. Very professional he worked hard and was on top of everything and helped me get exactly what I wanted. He was always responsive, answering all my questions promptly even when away visiting his family for a weekend. Friendly, professional, knowledgable with great advice and insight exactly what anyone would want in an agent.


We worked with Brandee in 2020 to purchase our first property in Mammoth.

She is fantastic to work with, personable, highly responsive and so knowledgeable about the area and how real estate works there. We are so grateful to have had her to walk us through the process. She had great recommendations and worked hard and quick to get us the property, despite multiple offers. We keep in touch and she's always answers our questions so quickly and leads us in the right direction. We are able to enjoy our dream home because of her! Thanks Brandee!! We will continue to work with her in the future.
