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.

Catherine and Jake Jacobi

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.

I would like to provide you this letter of recommendation as an excellent Realtor. You just completed the sale of my home in Yorba Linda and I am extremely happy with the results you were able to obtain for me. I had no idea how to approach pricing or accepting an offer for the house. With the background checking you performed and your knowledge and understanding of the current housing market, you guided me to a great starting price and several above-asking price offers. You clearly explained every step of the process and every paper that I had to sign. Since the sale garnered eight offers, you kept the information about each offer clearly separated and kept me clearly updated on each offer. And again, your guidance was very valuable to me in making the final decision. Your communication was frequent and clear to me and, I thought, also to the many other brokers. I never felt left out of what was going on and appreciated your attention to detail. I would highly recommend you to anyone I know seeking to buy or sell a home! 
Thank you so much for selling my house for me and remember I have one more for you to sell in the future!

Dear Joseph,

We would like to express our sincere thanks for your commitment to us over the past 3 years. We were not ready to buy a house yet when we initially met you, but you sent us helpful articles and listings to educate us while we saved up enough money for a down payment on a house in Orange County. After saving enough money, we were ready to buy and you helped us purchase our family’s “forever home” in Yorba Linda. You negotiated us getting the house over other buyers offers, and we SO love our new home! You were straightforward, knowledgeable, persistent, and honest the entire process. You did not pressure us into anything we did not want to do, but rather informed us of our options and allowed us to make the final decision on things. Because of that, we also chose to sell our first home in Chino Hills with you. You were so determined to sell our home for us that you did so in 2 months, a 21-day escrow and during the Christmas/New Year’s holiday season! Amazing!! You held open houses and placed newspaper ads every week for optimal exposure. You also did not allow us to settle for anything under what our home was worth. You got us an excellent offer on the first home our family owned and loved. Thank you for much from the bottom of our hearts. We are truly grateful for all your hard work in everything you did for our family. We would highly recommend you to anyone looking to find an all around GREAT realtor!

Dear Joseph –  

I want to extend my sincere appreciation for your outstanding work on selling my house recently.  We have now worked together to sell three houses that I lived in.  Two were in Orange County and the last one in Hemet, CA.  For each of my houses, your guidance about preparing the house for sale aided in the showings.  Each of the houses you sold for me had multiple offers and a buyer within a week of the listing.   

You have always been prepared, providing me with all the information I needed to understand the process and make decisions.  For this last sale, you represented me on the Hemet, CA house while I live in Kentucky, so our dealings were via phone, text messages and email.  You provided me information on how to go about evicting my tenant and you managed the Hemet general contractor I used to make some repairs and renovations.  We had multiple offers and the house was sold for full asking price! 

I have always felt extremely comfortable and happy working with you due to your extensive knowledge in real estate and selling of homes.  Also because of your positive nature and enthusiasm and your superior customer support. 

I will have no other houses to sell in Southern California but I have highly recommended you to my family members who still live there and might one day plan to move.   

Thank you for everything to make selling my Hemet house just about effortless on my part.
