Gwen Glenn Relocation Specialist & Assistant to Sharon Schovain
For more than twenty years, I served clients in the mortgage and banking industry. Becoming a Relocation Specialist with Block & Associates Realty has been the perfect fit for me. I grew up in a military family and have lived all over the U.S. and overseas. I consider myself an “expert” at relocation having moved so many times in my life.
I have lived in Raleigh for the last eight years and love everything that this city has to offer. I enjoy the outdoors and I am an avid football fan. My husband and I love our Friday nights under the lights at Leesville High School watching our son play football. I enjoy volunteering and have a passion for serving others. I look forward to putting my knowledge and enthusiasm to work for you!
Gwen was great to work with! She helped us see the house even though we were far away and walked us through the application and selection process. It was kept simple and I'd use Block and Gwen again in the future.
They are absolutely the best!!! They have amazing customer service and work tirelessly to help you find the best home for you. I couldn't have found the townhouse of my dreams without them. Thank you Block & Associates team!!!! Special thanks to Gwen Glenn and Tricia Dickens.
My wife and I recently relocated to the area and needed to find temporary housing that would hold many items from the old house. Gwen Glenn did a great job adjusting to our schedule to view the property they had available. We were able to move into the rental property in a short timeframe with no issues. This company has been great responding to our needs and any additional requests we had.
Finding an affordable home in a good location with a fenced yard for our dogs in the western half of Raleigh when you're on a budget is NOT easy. However, Gwen and Jeff with Block & Associates were FANTASTIC! Gwen helped us find a wonderful house, in a great location within budget that was dog friendly and made the entire process extremely easy for us! Gwen was more than willing to be flexible in meeting us to see the house, scotch guard carpets, and listen to make sure all of our concerns were addressed. Jeff was extremely helpful during the process of finding a convenient move-in date and getting all of our paperwork done. Between the two of them the entire process was smooth and easy!! We are now in a wonderful home and will absolutely recommend Block & Associates (specifically Gwen and Jeff) to any friends looking to rent in the area.

I was relocating cross-country from Washington state to the Raleigh area and while working under a specific deadline, needed to find a rental home basically sight-unseen. Having to do this process remotely has its own set of challenges, one of which I found to be a lack of responsiveness from property owners and other agents. My experience with Gwen was the absolute opposite of this. She was consistently responsive, understanding of my situation, needs and preferences, and worked rapidly to help find me a home. She advised me on areas and served as an accommodating go-between, even though my ultimate rental was not one of her personal listings. I can't tell you what a relief it was to find a great home that is perfect for me and be encouraged and accommodated all throughout a slightly nerve-wracking process of relocating to a brand new area. Thank you, Gwen, for everything!

Gwen Glenn was a lifesaver! We had been approved for two rentals prior to finding her, both went to other applicants and we were within a few days of having to vacate our newly sold home. We met Gwen when looking at one of the last 2 rentals on our list. She promised us she would find us something at the time we needed it. Boy, did she come through. We call her our angel because within a day, approvals were gotten and we had a place to move into! In addition, the rental was in the area we had stated would be preferred. You can't go wrong with someone like Gwen Glenn, a real problem solver. Thank you, Gwen.
We have been extremely pleased with the services of Gwen Glenn, who is very professional, courteous, informative and prompt in follow-up and returning calls. We cannot say enough good things about her. She has met all our expectations and has obtained our trust. This agency, by far, exceeds other management companies we have dealt with. We highly recommend Block and Associates and look forward to further enhancing our relationship.
I was relocating from NYC to Raleigh and didn't have the time to visit different homes. I was referred to Another Realtor, but she did not service rentals so referred me to Gwen Glenn at Block. Gwen was amazing!! She partnered with Jeff Stoker since he was he listing agent on the rental home! From beginning to end - I had a pleasant experience! Gwen was very responsive, she even went out to the property to take a video for me and answered all my questions! Jeff presented my fiancé and me in the best light to the owners and was very timely, responsive, and quick with the paperwork! We love our new home and had a very pleasant experience with Gwen and Jeff! Thank you both!
The services I received from Block & Associates was top of the line. I worked specifically with Gwen and Bill. Both were very professional, caring, and supportive in this transition for me and my family. Gwen could relate to my circumstances and really helped me feel comfortable and supported. They even contacted me on weekends to approve my application and to make sure I didn't have questions about my new home. I felt like I was talking to friends and was always made to feel my happiness and satisfaction was at the top of their list. Questions and emails were answered promptly and professionally. Once we moved into the home and needed to make a call for repairs the agency responded quickly and made sure I was satisfied with the service and outcome of the service call. This group of professionals are a team of people who really care about their tenants. It is not just about an exchange of goods and services but they are an extension of my family. I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a home in the triangle area!
My daughter and I came to Cary and had only five days to familiarize ourselves with the area…I wandered around for three days feeling lost and alone; Block & Associates was near our hotel so I timidly entered their lobby while my daughter waited in the car. I had lived in Michigan all my life…I was stressed out and starting to ask myself just what…I was doing in this foreign land. Then Gwen Glenn walked into the room, she was genuine, honest and professional, I knew my daughter and I were on our way home. We found a place the next day, filled out an application and returned to Michigan. Two days later we got the news from Gwen that…the home had been sold. …Gwen found us our dream home the next day, did a video walk through and then it was ours. One month later our GPS led us to our mystery home in a location that was just a dot on the map to us. We love the home, the area!!!!! Each and every day we discover things we never imagined, greenways, shopping, entertainment and a home that we love. Thank you Gwen for guiding us into our future.
