Attention: Tina Jimove

We are writing this letter in regards to one of your agents, Joseph Gallo. We were very pleased with his efforts in the selling of our condo located at 19083 Grandview Ave. in the city of Yorba Linda. We had our condo listed with Century 21 for one year prior to listing it with Joseph with no success. When Joseph called us, I explained to him that we owed more on our property than what it was worth because of the way the market values had dropped. He immediately told me about a "Short Sale" and made arrangements to contact our bank. It was very apparent that Joseph was willing to put much more work into selling our condo than the previous agent was. After approximately 3 months, Joseph had sold our condo. I was told by "David" and "Paula" from Pacific Inland Bank that Joseph was relentless in negotiating the sale of our condo with them. They said that Joseph did a lot of work and kept the bank posted almost on a daily basis on the progress of the sale.

My wife and I are very pleased with the personal attention that Joseph gave to the selling of our condo.

Thanks Joe.

Dear Mr. Arneal,

My wife and I would like to express our sincere gratitude to Joseph Gallo for a job well done on the sale of our home. His professionalism from the very start speaks highly for your organization and employees. Due to Joseph's involvement, this was the smoothest real estate transaction we have encountered.

Not only did he sell our home quickly , but his marketing strategy resulted in multiple offers. With his help, we were able to choose the best qualified buyers for our property and actually received an amount exceeding our listing price. In fact , this price was the exact amount Joseph believed our home would sell for in that current market. However , we felt that it would be slightly overpriced and opted to list slightly lower. Believe me, next time we will go with his professional opinion.

It is refreshing to know that there are people today who actually care about their clients. Joseph is in this business for the long haul. He managed to build our trust in him and even today stays in contact with us as a friend. We have referred our friends to Joseph and will definitely return to him for our next real estate transaction.

Once again, thank you Joseph and Tarbell. You are a class act.

Dear Joe:

 I am so sorry I haven't written sooner. It seems like I don't have time to get on the computer anymore. But , being busy is no excuse for not telling you how much we appreciated your help.

Jack and I appreciated your help so much in selling our house in Brea! We have had dealings with a few Realtors and , Joe , you are unique. Unique because of your concern, unique for your speedy efforts in getting papers signed and returned. Unique because you really worked hard in selling our home and you spent a lot of time  with us and in our behalf. You are unique because you are honest and we respect you a lot.

Joe , we had planned to do something special with you and for you , but due to our special circumstances we haven't been able to. We have recommended you highly to all our friends in hopes that if they ever sell, they will call you.

Thanks again Joe. It was a pleasure to know you and I hope we will meet again.

Dear Joseph,

We want to thank you for all the effort you put into selling our house in Brea. You worked long and hard to accomplish this and we appreciate it very much.

You took a personal interest in us and was in touch with us daily. You went beyond our expectations, as far as attending the open houses. You were there early and stayed late.

We were torn about selling our home of 27 years. As you know, we made this decision after learning of my health problems. You were understanding and kind and shared some of your own personal experiences with your family and health issues, there.

Thanks for making this very trying time for us, a little easier.

     This note is to extend my thanks and appreciation to Joseph Gallo for his effort and hard work in recently selling my house at 1730 Camino Centroloma in Fullerton,CA.

     Joseph was recommended to me by Ron McCord. Joseph initially performed a detailed market analysis that I used to help me decide to proceed with the sale.

     Joseph worked diligently on my behalf throughout the sale. He promptly provided me with weekly status updates,offers,counter offers,etc. He clearly explained each of the many forms involved and provided guidance in dealing with the different buyer agents.

     Thanks to Joseph's efforts, my house sold at the asking price and escrow completed quickly.

     I will readily recommend Joseph to my friends and family if they become in need of a real estate agent.

To Whom It May Concern:

     We recently contracted with Joseph Gallo, a realtor with Tarbell Realtors, to represent us in selling our house. We would highly recommend him to anyone needing a realtor.

     Joseph is a positive and motivated person. He gets excited about selling your house (or finding you one). He's organized, thorough, efficient, and always available when you need him. When selling our house, Joseph placed ads in local publications 2-3 times per week and held open houses every weekend (on both Sat.& Sun. if we wanted).

    As stressful as selling a house can be, Joseph helped make it a smooth transaction and we are pleased that we chose him as our realtor.

Dear Joseph,

    You did what you said you would do, and sold our house for more than what three other realtors wanted to list it for. Your marketing plan was comprehensive and you worked it to perfection.

    We can't imagine another realtor working as hard as you did. Selling our house in 29 days was nothing short of miraculous in this turbulent market.

    We can't thank you enough for your effort!

Dear Joseph,

We wanted to tell you that we are very impressed with the relentless effort to obtain a home for Dave and I. Your tireless efforts locating a home large enough to house 2 adults and 7 kids has not been forgotten. Walking door to door asking people to sell their homes demonstrated how you went beyond the call of duty and we truly appreciate your efforts. We found a short sale home which we could afford and you dedicated months of your time negotiating with the selling broker. Throughout the transaction hiccup after hiccup occurred and your skills shined through.

Your proven professionalism in providing expertise of immeasurable value when time is of the essence reflects that you are a tremendous asset to your company.

Please accept our sincerest gratitude for the superior job done. We will  refer our family and friends to you and we will definitely return to you for our next real estate transaction.

To whom it may concern,

During the past year I have had the pleasure to work with one of your agents, Joseph Gallo. Mr. Gallo listed my home for sale in Yorba Linda and worked diligently to get it sold. He held many open houses and advertised it in several markets. Mr. Gallo also acted as my agent in purchasing a replacement home. In this transaction he continually checked for new listings and constantly updated me. It was refreshing to work with someone who not only acted professional at all times, but also paid close attention to what I told him and made me feel as though I was his only client. He was also very prompt in returning my phone calls and emails. You are fortunate to have an agent with such wonderful qualities working for your company and I will be sure to recommend him to my friends in the future.

To: Tarbell Realtors and Joseph Gallo

My wife and I first met Joseph Gallo as he walked her neighborhood in the mornings handing out his weekly fliers. As the weeks passed we would always see him about the same time and day. We started to talk to him about some future plans that we had as a couple and for our family. Trust in a realtor was very important to both of us, because our castle is our castle. We were blending families and we needed a large enough house for all of us and in the right area of Yorba Linda for the right schools. Joseph started knocking on doors in an effort to find something. He was key to the house we are in now and at a realistic budget for us. We Found our new “Castle”, fixer upper with a mote (Green Pool) and in need of a lot of repairs, just the style we were looking for.

When it was time to sell my wife’s rental house, we called Joseph. We needed some ideas from him on the staging and paint colors that might help attract buyers. Joseph was persistent with us, so we stayed on track and finished on time for our target date. When we were ready to sell, he listed the house, advertised, scheduled open houses then multiple offers started coming in. We had discussed the listing amount and the combined agreement was right on target with the market and was fair. He was meticulous, respectful, knowledgeable, open, and willing to be open and upfront when he needed to be, without breaching any boundaries. Joseph followed up continuously so we would not fall behind with any of the paperwork. We recommend him to our family, friends and my clients. Please feel free to contact us if you have a client who would like to ask us questions. I know that when I refer him, my friends and family will be in excellent professional hands.


Sincerely,


Dave & Beatrice Pratt
