Jean Gross

Jean is most commonly recognized for the impish smile on her signs. It should come as no surprise that she has sold an impressive number of homes in her 33+ years in Real Estate. Jean’s experience, knowledge and expertise with Buyers & Sellers & the Art of Staging, have propelled her to become one of the top “Grossing” agents in Chester County. Additionally the past two years, Jean’s listings SOLD on average at 99% of asking price and only 28 days on the market! With stats like that, why would you list with anyone else? Laughter is her favorite activity and she adores going to the movies with her son, Sean. Jean’s fashion sense is “Matchy Matchy” from her reading glasses, bracelets, sunglasses straight down to her seasonally painted toes. Jean, “The Martini Queenie” and Bob getaway from it all midwinter in St. Thomas and Scuba dive whenever possible!

Bob Gross

As our Field Commander, Bob’s experience as a Marine Sgt. And Residential Contractor helps to ensure our Sellers’ homes readiness to be put on the market . From staging to inspections, Bob’s keen eye brings immense value to the process of selling a home, even in the toughest of markets. We can always count on Bob for a laugh, often, at his own expense. He is the Open House ‘Gent’~Signs, Banners & Broker’s Open Host with the Most. His Homemade Peach Pie is just scrumptious! He is a Jack of all Trades & we can count on him for anything we need. He loves to host parties, & does most of the cooking. His ‘Man Cave’ is his retreat for enjoying cigars, fine scotch & smooth jazz. Scuba Diving in St. Thomas is one of his greatest joys. They have a wonderful son named Sean.

Melissa Ford-Long

Although Melissa is the newest member of the team, she is hardly new to Real Estate. With 25 years of experience she is a seasoned agent. She has a Broker's license in PA and DE. She has managed offices, worked in New Construction & Land Acquisition, "dabbled" in commercial real estate & now has come back to her first love .... working with Buyers. Why? because she loves to shop! Her husband says she could retire if she didn't like to shop so much! With a wide range of experience professionally as well as geographically, Melissa can find the right fit, whether in Chester, Delaware or New Castle counties. Melissa says there's no better feeling than the one you get when your clients' eyes light up as they walk into the right house! It's better than a half price clearance sale!
