Team reviews

My husband and I met Lorie 3 years ago via phone call inquiry on a home and were so impressed with her professionalism and honesty that we kept her number and in May of 2012 I called her to help us buy a home. Lorie and Dave were amazing we viewed several homes and put in more than a few offers but after a month of hitting the house hunting hard we finally got an offer accepted at below asking with a % back from the sellers. When we had our inspection done there were some issues and Lorie and Dave negotiated the sellers to fix the issues before we closed. One month after we closed the issues returned I called Lorie and told her what was happening and she called the previous listing agent and worked weeks on getting the issues fixed Lorie was not only loyal and hardworking during the transaction but when the issued arrived after she was on top of it the sellers fixed our homes problems. Lorie is hard working and honest in the future I hope to do business with her again. Lorie Dave Thank you for your hard work by the way I know were not the easiest people to deal with but you blessed us.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Fair Oaks, CA.

I am a first time home buyer and I recently purchased a foreclosed home and it was quite a process. Lorie and Dave were excellent in dealing with the bank negotiating repairs, filling out paperwork, getting inspections, you name it! Dave also being a contractor made me feel secure that I was really getting a great deal on the house and I wasn't going to be blind sided by something that I normally wouldn't have looked for. They really listened to my wants and needs along with following my strict budget. They are warm, caring, real, and very trustworthy. They are an awesome team and I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a home.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Gilroy, CA.

We had a rough time with the appraisals and getting the underwriter to accept but Dave and Laura kept with it and were great and got me the condo I wanted. I don't know how they kept up with the pressure but they did and I am happy to be in my new place. Plus they were right on top of finding me places to look at and were very very helpful.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Elk Grove, CA.

I am a first time homebuyer. My experience with Dave and Laura was excellent. They were available to answer my questions and make suggestions. Everytime I called they responded quick. They were personable and made sure they got to know me. They really listened to what I actually wanted in a home. I recommended them to a co-worker-friend and she also really enjoyed the experience of shopping and buying a home. I think there knowledge, expertise, responsiveness and negotiation skills were above average. I will continue to recommend them in the future to anyone that is interested in buying a home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Morgan Hill, CA.

I highly recommend Lorie and Dave Gardner. They went above and beyond helping me find the perfect home. Good homes below $300,000 in the area I wanted to buy are difficult to find and go off the market quickly when they list. I am very busy with two jobs and have little time to view homes. Lorie and Dave spent quality time with me getting to know my personal needs and preferences for a home. Because Dave is also a contractor, I had his expertise in buying a home that would stay within my post-purchase budget to handle any upgrades. Lorie then went house hunting for me and sent me videos of houses the day they were listed. I made an offer on a house before I actually saw it based on her detailed videos. I know there commission on my little home was not on par with a million dollar home sale but I was treated like a person looking for the perfect million dollar home. I will definitely use Lorie and Dave again in the future.

Showed home in 2012 in Elk Grove, CA.

I highly recomend Dave and Laura to anyone looking to buy a home. This team listened to my wants and helped me to figure out what I could afford with no hesitations. They gave me the warm feeling of being their only client and guided me through a very pleasant experience of house hunting. Dave and Laura also recomended many things, but I never felt pushed or pressured. I have had to stop my house hunt due to my employment issues for now, but plan on looking again in the near future. I am glad to know that this team of Realtors will be there to help me through this process when the time comes to buy a home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Sacramento, CA.

My experience with Dave and Laura was the best ever. i met Dave and Laura through my daughter who actually purchased the house. Dave and Laura's expertise and knowledge base of the Real Estate Market is exceptional!! I felt very comfortable talking to Dave and Laura. Their attention to detail and the little things is what I like about both of them. If you are a first time home buyer or a current home owner selling your house. I would HIGHLY recommend that you give them a call, they are sincere, straightforward, honest, impartial, TRUSTWORTHY,(this is important in todays' market) fair and genuine, you couldn't ask for more in a real estate agent. The BEST part is that Laura took care of everything for my daughter, including making sure that all the paper work was signed and sent in on time. Laura can have anyone call me, I will be happy to share more of my experience I had with Dave and Laura. Thanks Dave and Laura and may GOD Bless you. .

my experience on buying a home with Dave and Lorie was wonderful, they listen to what I wanted and I didn't feel presure. They explained the process from start to finish and I really felt that they had my best interest in hand. I would and I'm going to recommend them to my friends and family.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $650K in San Ramon, CA.

Dave & Laurie helped us to buy our home in San Ramon, CA in the month of April 2012. From the moment we got introduced to them, we were stuck by their patience, perseverance and professionalism on display by both of them. Dave & Laurie helped us negotiate a treacherous Real Estate market, providing us up to date information on prices, mortgage rates and availability of properties. Even when we changed our requirements several times, they were quite open and honest, incorporating everything into our home search. One other remarkable thing about them was that they never put pressure on us to close on a property without considering all the pros and cons. In fact, when we were planning to pull the trigger, some of their insightful comments helped us to calibrate our approach. They always made sure that our interests were front and center of everything that was done.

Once we made the decision, Dave & Laurie helped us through the whole process one step at a time. They were always upfront and honest about what was required from us and what could be asked for. Every time we had a question or clarification, they were always available to answer them. After the closing, they even helped to negotiate a month of rental to allow us more time to move in.

Dave & Laurie have been friends ever since. We would recommend them highly for your home buying / selling / renting needs.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $200K in Elk Grove, CA.

It was a real pleasure working with Lorie and Dave Gardner in pursuit of a dream come true, owning my own home! I liked Lorie instantly upon our first meeting. She really narrowed in on the details I was looking for in a house as well as issues that caused me concern. We really seemed to be on the same wavelength as we looked at potential houses. She was very flexible and accommodating with my schedule and viewing requests. She kept tabs, checking in with me through the process, but never did I feel pressured. Dave brought a bevy of experience and a General Contractor's point of view. As such, he pointed out potentials and problems that I may not have seen, which I really appreciated. Lorie and Dave are family oriented and were so good with my children. They are genuinely good people. My entire home purchase went smoothly. I would definitely recommend them and work with them again myself.
