Francesca and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your hard work, although you made the sale of our home look relatively easy. As you are well aware, Francesca and I attempted to sell our home in Banning, for nearly a year with no success. Then we discovered you, and our home was sold in just a few short months. Not only did you make the sale look easy, but you also made the entire escrow process a pleasure. You were there to answer any and all of our many questions and your customer service is outstanding -- not to mention, your ability to sell speaks for itself.
In closing, if we should ever decide to sell our home here in Palm Springs, we intend to call you first. Thank you for everything!
All The Best,
~ David & Francesca Flowers, Palm Springs CA

At each step their dedication to our interests as home buyers was extraordinary. If we ever buy or sell a home in again, it will be with Garrigus Real Estate. ~ Eric and Susanne, Beaumont CA
You couldn't ask for better real estate agents to short sell your home! We were under-water on our San Bernardino, California house and Garrigus Real Estate not only listed our property and launched a huge on-line marketing campaign, but they also negotiated with our lender and sold our house for less than it was worth! And the home sale cost us nothing!!! ~ Jeff & Bonnie, San Bernardino CA
