Gary Giffin is an exceptional and a must have real estate agent on your side.
Gary went above and beyond in helping our family purchase our first home. We didn't have the budget as most of Gary's clients normally do, but Gary always treated us as if we were his top client. Gary always took time to answer our questions via phone, text, and email in a very swift manner. Gary taught us the differences, important details to look for, and items to be cautious of in all of our documents. Gary looked out for our best interests by always accompanying us to open houses; going through each step in detail from pre-escrow, to escrow, to closing of escrow; and always encouraged us to make decisions that we were comfortable with.
Once we made an offer on a house we moved fast. Gary had contacts for the mortgage lender and inspections to provide a speedy and smooth process. Near the end of our escrow period on our final walk-through we noticed a few minor repairs that we would have done ourselves, but Gary insisted that we negotiate to have the seller do those repairs. We ended up going with Gary's advice and not only did the seller do the repairs, Gary negotiated a lower price for us to purchase the house at! We closed escrow and bought our first home. It's been a few months and we couldn't be any happier than we are now.
For any future home buying or selling we will definitely have Gary represent us.
The bottom line is if you want someone who is personable, committed, responsive, honest, looking out for your best interests, looking to protect your money and investments through and after the home buying process, go with Gary Giffin.
