Where do I even begin? Amazing! Wonderful! Fantastic! So much more than what we could of asked for … and that’s why I believe Viva Gallegos was Heaven Sent especially for us! In the very beginning of our house search we had spoken to a few agents before actually meeting Viva … and they weren’t bad but it’s like shopping for your wedding dress, from experience you just know when it’s “The One” and after our first brief conversation, we just knew Viva was “The One” for us! Her warm smile and soft-spoken voice was calming and reassuring … she took great care of us! Viva never pressured us, never pushed us to lean one way or another and always gave us the right amount of direction from her experience of 15+ years. Viva is very patient and respectful, she immediately had an accurate understanding of what we were looking for. Viva is without question the most courteous, trustworthy and provides outstanding service! We are so grateful to Dominic Godfrey Realtor with Intero Real Estate Services and Vicki Mohnach at Skyline Home Loans for their impeccable service … we thank you all so much! We are thrilled to be in our first home together and delighted to share just how well we were taken care of by Viva, Dominic and Vicki! Our entire purchasing experience was exceptional!
The Suarez Family, Hollister Buyer

Dominic and his team are AWESOME! They helped me get into my first home. The town home came onto the market on a Friday and I was informed by their automated system. I was able to see the home on Saturday and then meet with Dominic in the evening and we wrote up an offer. His expertise allowed us to write up a very strong offer. He and his team submitted it on Monday and I found out on Tuesday that I was selected out of 12 offers! This was my first try, which is unheard of in such a competitive market as we have right now.
I am so grateful for Dominic and his assistant Jackie for all their hard work and knowledge that allowed for a smooth home purchase. I really believe that had I gone with anyone else, I would not have got this home. Team Dominic is the way to go!!
Jennifer Rilea, Morgan Hill Buyer
Grace was amazing as our realtor through the entire home buying process. She really cares about the people she helps, and was a pleasure to work with on buying our home in Morgan Hill. In this process you want someone you can trust is putting you and your family first, not the paycheck, and Grace did exactly that, I would absolutely use Grace again!
The Thompsons, Morgan Hill, Buyers
Mr.Godfrey aka Dominic is and will always be the best realtor in the world! He is an amazing and professional realtor! My husband and I wanted to know more about buying our first home and we found Dominic on a Saturday night. We thought we would have to wait until the next week to see him, but Dominic went out of his way to see us on Sunday! We were very impressed. Not only did we find the right home, but we were fortunate enough to find a realtor who truly cared about his job performance and the well-being of his clients; which we are very grateful for! You deserve more than 5 stars! More like ten stars

Dearest Dominic,
Wanted to say thank you for all you contributed toward us managing to find our dream house. We really appreciate your patience, knowledge, and “un-pushiness”. It was the most pleasant experience we’ve ever had buying a house and we really enjoyed working with you!
All the best,

Dominic Godfrey is the god father of realtors in our opinion! We could not be happier with all he did to get us through our FIRST home purchase. He is realistic, trusting, professional, fun and funny and will work his tail off to make things happen. He really knows his stuff too!! One of the great things about him is that he is very well known in south county and people respect him. His team is also amazing! Brittney Aragon was extremely helpful and always made sure to give me updates. I never had to ask her for info – she was always 2 steps ahead! Jackie Ponce was on maternity leave during our process but once she was back she dove right in and was also a huge help. The moral of the story is: Look no further!! Call Dominic Godfrey TODAY!!

Couldn’t of asked to work with anyone better, Stacey was with us every step of the way. She stuck with us bad news as well as the ultimate great news. She offered us great advice, gave us “property virgins” direction and we felt she genuinely cared about our needs and worked super hard on our behalf. Working with Stacey & Intero Reality was a very positive experience from start to finish and we highly recommend her to all who ask.Thank you doesn’t even seem enough to show our appreciation. Many Thanks over and over from the Alatorre Miranda Family

Dominic and his reality team are excellent.  They are professional, knowledgeable, responsive, and know how to position you to get the house you want.  I have bought two homes through Dominic and his team.
I was first time investor in rental prosperities.  Dominic was able to provide great insights into the geographic areas that perform well for investment prosperities (insights down to the street level in areas around Santa Clara County and San Benito County).  These insights were invaluable.  He also has a system that alerts you (within minutes) of homes that come onto the market that meet your buying criteria.  With Dominic’s expertise and systems, we found two great homes.  I did learn that finding a home in this market was only half the battle…getting the home is quite a different battle.  There were multiple offers on each of the homes we went after, yet with Dominic’s market insights, understanding of seller’s acceptance criteria, attention to details within the offers, and his focus on winning for his clients, I now own two great investment properties.
I highly recommend Dominic and his team: Stellar performance…outstanding results.
Derek S., Hollister Investment Buyer
I truly enjoyed working with Dominic and Brittney! They were both fantastic, professional, helpful, enthusiastic and so friendly to work with. I could have not picked out a better agent to help me find my first home. I can honestly say that Dominic made the entire process so easy and smooth for me. He helped me find the exact perfect home that I wanted. He is extremely knowledgeable and is very persistent. His main goal is to ensure his clients are happy and to find them a home that meets and exceeds their expectations. He truly did that for me. His assistant Brittney is amazing as well. She is organized, friendly, helpful and truly a blessing to work with. Dominic and his team have my highest recommendation!

She continuously performed professionally while demonstrating personal warmth and care towards us as her clients. We can’t say enough positive things about Deanne!! It has been our pleasure in meeting and knowing Deanne during our house hunting adventure.

I recently relocated from Palm Desert and Deanne Stutzman helped us long distance to buy our home in Morgan Hill.  Her patience, diligence and experience working with buyers was very fortunate for us.  I found her to be very thorough and she always followed through with what she said.  Her personality and experience with the whole process made it a very pleasant transaction.  I would be happy to refer her to my friends and family. Sincerely, Patricia Lawler

When we were looking for our first home, we did a lot of research but we also needed guidance from an experienced professional, so we contacted DominicGodfrey.com Realtors where we met Stacey Poso. She helped us find a lovely home to start our married life. During the negotiating process Stacey did everything in our favor.  She always took that extra step to make sure we were getting all the information we needed in a timely manner. During the closing process we encountered some obstacles and Stacey was always there to help us look for answers and give us her advice. If we had to do it all over again, we would not hesitate in calling Stacey to help us out again. She is the real deal. THANKS Stacey for everything. The Marcelo’s

We would like to express our deep appreciation and gratitude for all the help and service provided by Patrick Bedley while finding our dream home. As a first-time home buyer we were unfamiliar with many of the processes and Patrick guided us through every step very patiently. With his excellent knowledge of the local market, years of experience, anda plethora of tools and resources, Patrick made the whole process of finding and buying a house unbelievably smooth. He worked extremely hard to find us the suitable properties that addressed our needs and expectations and was very flexible with his schedule to accommodate our odd hours.
When we found properties we were interested in, Patrick meticulously provided us with assessments of valuation of the properties and pros and cons of such investments. He displayed a high level of integrity and professionalism and we always felt that we had a friend assisting us in the largest financial commitment in our life. And once we found the property we wanted to buy, Patrick negotiated a fair deal for us, helped us through the inspection and calmed our nerves with his reassuring presence during the closing. He was always very prompt in answering our phone calls and emails; and when the need arose he acted above and beyond our expectations in tying up all loose ends. We feel that we were very fortunate to have a knowledgeable and skilled professional such as Patrick Bedley as our realtor and we very highly recommend him to anyone who wants to buy or sell a house.-The Dekas

Patrick Bedley worked patiently with us to find us the perfect home in this very difficult market. We were overwhelmed by foreclosures and Short Sales and Patrick’s vast knowledge and expertise helped us navigate through this competitive market. It wasn’t easy but Patrick was determined, motivated and worked tirelessly to get us in to the right home! We persevered and now our family has a house to call a home. We can’t thank you enough Patrick for all your hard work and dedication.

Monica is kind, considerate and always has your best interests at heart. Her cheery personality, coupled with a very diplomatic communication style, make her the perfect agent. We found an excellent deal in the neighborhood we were looking at and Monica never left our side. If you meet Monica, you will be re-assured in the first meeting itself that this is the kind of agent you want working on your behalf. We would be very happy to work with her again anytime!-Ramnik Johar
Ramnik Johar, San Jose, CA


We would be very happy to recommend Monica to our friends or family. We loved her no pressure attitude. She was always prompt about answering our questions and showing us new listings as soon as we wanted to see them. Monica went out of her way many times to sort things out with the seller and their agent. She was with us throughout the entire process. She is straightforward with a completely no nonsense attitude, and just the kind of agent you want to be working with. More friend, less agent! Jayesh and Ishita Joshi
Jayesh and Ishita Joshi , San Jose, CA


I just bought a home for the very first time and needless to say if I did not have Monica by my side, the dream of homeownership would have remained just that. I would gladly refer her to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable realtor, who listens more and talks less, someone who puts the client’s needs and wants over and above anything else. “Thank you Monica, there is no comparison to the excellent service I received from you. It was a real pleasure!

Recently Deanne Stutzman helped me buy a home in Gilroy. She is professional, personable, and understanding, a rare combination. She was able to deal not only with signing details and escrow, but also with my feelings which were running high. I was particularly impressed by her negotiation with the seller for work to be done on the house at their cost before we moved in. Her win/win approach helped all of us feel great about the outcome. Since we often spend much time with a Realtor when looking for a house, I highly recommend Deanne who will not only get the work done, but will also make it an enjoyable experience for everyone involved. Best Regards, Sherri

Hi Dominic,
We have just moved in in the last couple of days and there’re so many things to be unpacked. We’re getting tired but still excited. We have been so blessed to own this lovely house and so thankful for all your help and services. We think Thanksgiving would be the best time to send you this thanks note. You’re simply marvelous. We have been living in the Bay Area since 1988 and have purchased a number properties. There’s no doubt the service you have given us is the best. It had been more than 6-months search before we purchased this one. During the time, you showed us numerous properties in Morgan Hill, Gilroy, and Evergreen San Jose. You had always been patient, listened to our needs and given us guidance whenever we needed. You had neither been pushy nor laid back. We’re so impressed by your negotiation skills and experience and really appreciate you always try to get the best deal for us. Among all the things we want to thank you, the best advice and reminder you had given to us is “find the best home you love” which had served a guidance for us whenever we were facing some decision-making. We believe this advice is also your goal for customers and that’s why you have been so successful and it will continue to make you successful in the future.Thank God for giving us this lovely home, and thank you for giving us the opportunity to know you and have your excellent service! Also, we’d like to extend our thanks to Angie for her great service!Best regards and Happy Holidays! Wanqun & Jiang

Greetings Dominic, We want to sincerely thank you and your staff for all your help last year!  Before we interviewed agents, we decided that we needed someone that we could trust.  Our hopes, dreams and finances were at stake.  Our agent would need lots of experience in real estate transactions, marketing, and possess a strong work ethic. After working with you for 9 months, as both a buyer and a seller, we have a new, higher standard to compare other agents to.  In our opinion, you have proven yourself to be a true Real Estate professional, something we can not say about every agent. You spent countless hours with us, helping us get the best possible house.  In the end, we looked at over 100 houses, most of which you personally showed us.  We put you through the ringer by being indecisive and starting off with an unrealistic view of what we would need to spend to get a home with all the features we wanted.  After several offers that fell through we finally found a home that had the features we wanted most and was within our means.  I think most agents would have given up on us, but you stuck with us through it all. We know that you worked like crazy to sell our old house, going far beyond what most other agents would have done.  There was a lot of work to be completed before we could even put it up for sale.  You helped us decide what to fix and what to leave alone so that we could still get it to market before the holidays.  Your network of professionals helped us get the jobs done.  The staging service you offer is invaluable.  It was such a surprise to see just how beautiful the right paint colors, furniture and accessories could make it look!  You held open houses for us almost every weekend, most times both days!  We are really glad you were there, with your broad knowledge and experience. We are very thankful to have had your help.Sincerely, Bruce & Cheryl Hemp

To Potential Home Buyer or Seller,
We have bought and sold 3 properties in the past 5 years.  The best experience of them was the purchase and sale of our Morgan Hill Condo with Dominic Godfrey of Coldwell Banker.  We were very impressed with how he handled the entire process. When purchasing the condo Dominic helped us prepare an offer that we were comfortable with, yet was attractive enough to our sellers to accept over other offers.  The process went smoothly and Dominic made sure we understood every detail of the contract. When it came time to list the condo the housing market had drastically changed.  Homes were staying on the market longer and prices were dropping.  Dominic managed to turn the sale of our home in good time and nearly at asking price. Dominic has a unique quality we have not seen in other realtors.  He has excellent people skills, is very down to earth and can negotiate tough when necessary.  He has an uncanny ability to balance the needs of the buyer and seller in the transaction and makes both sides feel they have won. We plan to purchase a fourth home in 2008 and wouldn’t dream of using another realtor.  Dominic Godfrey is the best and we would refer him to any friend or family member with complete confidence!
Sincerely,
David and Marya Keegan

Stacey Poso found us a really great deal on a bank owned foreclosure property but the bank wanted to sell the property AS IS, despite it needing numerous repairs. Stacey took on the bank single handed and systematically negotiated over $4,000 of repairs with them, making the bank complete repairs before close of escrow, at their expense. We’re so glad she was on our side! Stacey worked incredibly hard for us throughout the whole process and was continually adding value through her considerable knowledge, experience and negotiating skills. Thank you so much Stacey for getting us into our own home. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Monica helped us buy our first home. She is a very caring person and working with her was an absolute pleasure. She was always available to answer all our questions. Being first time buyers we were naturally nervous, but just knowing that Monica was there for us made the entire process less strenuous. She always went the extra mile to ensure that our interests were well taken care of. She knows her job and does it thoroughly. We would gladly recommend Monica to all our friends and family and to anyone out there who is looking for a really good friend in the real estate business.

Dana and Edward Parra, Gilroy, CA
We would like to say it’s been a pleasure working with Dominic Godfrey because he was very pleasant, knowledgeable and if he didn’t know the answer he would research it then call back with the answers. Dominic found us our dream home and helped us come up with an offer that the sellers would accept, and took his time to go over the procedures so that Jim and I understood.  He made sure we knew what was going on at every stage of the process and the best part he was always available for us by phone when we had questions. Dominic went the extra mile for everything and was present at all inspections and signing of loan papers. Also, we would like to say that Dominic takes pride in what he does because he’s been to our new house twice since we moved in about a month ago to make sure were doing okay and everything is in our liking. Lastly, since we enjoyed Dominic so much we have referred him to our landlord where we were renting, who now wants to sell his property in Morgan Hill. We would strongly recommend Dominic to anyone looking for a realtor because of his personality, aggressiveness and persistence to get what you want.”

Thanks to Stacey Poso and the staff of DominicGodfrey.com Realtors at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, we realized our dream of becoming first-time homeowners, despite buying during a challenging market.  We can’t say enough about Stacey’s professionalism, her honesty, her tireless dedication to finding a home that was just right for us, and the absolute trust that we developed in her ability to get the job done while representing our interests first and foremost. In our opinion Stacey’s commitment to providing us the best service went far beyond the call of duty. Stacey became more than just our agent; we think of her as a friend of our family. We would definitely ask Stacey Poso to represent us again and we have already told our friends and family to strongly consider her and Dominic Godfrey’s Realtor Team for their real estate needs.

Jon & Maria Kaiser, Gilroy, CA
When I moved to California from  the Marshall Islands last Fall I had the good fortune to meet Dominic Godfrey at an open house that he was hosting.  Although I wasn’t really interested in that particular property, he offered to help me in my search for a home to buy.  He acted as my buyer’s agent and discerned the type of property that I was looking for and prescreened properties for me as I was out of the country for the first part of my search.  When I arrived in California to stay, we worked for a couple of weekends to find the right property to buy.  During this time Dominic looked out for my interests very well and I ended up finding and purchasing a very nice property in Gilroy for a very good price. As a result, I would highly recommend Dominic to anyone who needs a helpful real estate professional to assist them find and acquire property especially in Morgan Hill or Gilroy.”

Dominic,
I just thought that I would send you an e-mail thanking you for a job well done. I know you showed us several homes that actually would have met our needs, but as you already know, we believe that the home we finally purchased was our dream home. I like the way you never backed off on our negotiating, or for looking for just one more house. You are very
professional and a joy to work with as our agent. As you know we have owned over twenty homes across the country, thus we know what type of an agent we needed to help find a home and the financing to finish the deal. You are that type of agent. Again, thank you for a job well done.”
Best regards,

We were first-time homebuyers and Dominic was very helpful in making sure we understood every part of the process. When we were looking at properties, he very quickly learned what we were looking for and got us in to see a half-dozen properties that met our requirements. Once we decided to put in an offer, Dominic helped us to make sure that the dozens of steps happened in the right order and with the right documentation, so there were no nasty surprises at closing. He made sure we knew what was going on at every stage of the process, and he was always available by phone when we had questions. We have recommended Dominic to our friends who are considering purchasing a home in the south county area — for us, it was smooth sailing the whole way and we couldn’t be happier.”
Jarrod N.  (Director of Applications at a Silicon Valley software company)
Jarrod Norton, Santa Clara County

We met Dominic at an open house in June of 2003 while we were looking to buy a house in the Morgan Hill or Gilroy area. Dominic acted as our agent in buying a very nice house in Gilroy. He worked to help us through every step of the whole process, from finding the right house, making an offer, organizing and attending the house inspections, getting a mortgage, all the way to closing.  Even after we moved in to our new home he paid us a visit to see if things were working okay.   While we were very much impressed by his knowledge, attention to details, honesty and integrity, we were especially grateful for him going the extra mile to help us out of a mortgage transaction problem that came up right before closing, due to some mis-communication within the lender’s organization. Even though it took very many phone calls over a period of several days, Dominic’s persistence paid off when he eventually resolved the issue through elevating it to a very high level manager at the bank.”
