“Selling our home and understanding the process has never been easier! Angela Lazrovich went the extra mile! Besides being professional she was so flexible with our schedule and was always willing to meet us after working hours. I recommend Angela Lazrovich and her office personnel without reservations. I have plans to buy a home in a year or two and without a doubt I will be calling her. “~ Reina C.

Lee helped us get our first home. As first time home buyers we did not have much knowledge about process and he helped us understand process very nicely and gave us valuable advice. He is very professional and patient and explained the process step by step whenever we had any doubts. We posted a message on his website and got a call in less than 15 minutes after the contact. After that it was a smooth process to buy our house.

We would highly recommend Lee without any reservation.
Thank you.

“I have bought and sold real estate both for investment and for my residences in two states. Angelo was able to give me all the tools I need to make the right decisions. He knows the market well, and he is an excellent guide through the entire transaction. I trust his advice and would recommend him to anyone.”
~Nick L.

“We can’t thank Angelo Gorgulho enough for the job he did for us. He sold our home in San Jose and found us a great house in Morgan Hill through a short sale, which he maneuvered through smoothly. He spent a lot of time guiding us through the process and had great knowledge of both markets and we were able to get a fantastic deal on both due to his hard work and expertise. The most impressive thing was that we were able to close both at the same time which made our lives so much easier. Thank you Angelo for your hard work and your attention to detail. We would not hesitate to strongly refer you to anyone we know.”
~ Chris & Michelle K

“Angelo Provided excellent service going beyond what would be expected. He found us a home that was quite far from his home base, since my work as a Contractor is all over the bay area this allowed us to get a much nicer home than we would have been able to afford in Morgan Hill. Even when we were moving in to our new home the service did not end. WOW! I would refer him to anyone and will use him again in the future. ”

“We sold our house through Cindy Dalla. She is very professional. We highly recommend her.”
~ Uma Purdi

“Cindy did an excellent job for my family both finding us the perfect home and also selling our home. The connections that she had in the South County region of the Bay Area were definitely a plus. Cindy has that energy that is just contagious and she makes things happen. I would definitely recommend Cindy Dally without hesitation.”
~ Michael Butner

We “accidentally” came across Lee a few months back. We had spoken with a few Realtors before him and had uneasy feelings about all of them. They were pushy, more concerned with their “sale numbers” than our feelings etc… Therefore, we put off the sale of our house for another year. There are many good Realtors out there, we just had not found one we were comfortable with. Then came Lee. (Sounds like a song!)
Not only was he knowledgeable but he was personable too. We also found out from inspectors in our area that Lee was highly thought of as an honest person with integrity. Yup, they were right. He helped us through a nerve wracking sale. We are now HAPPILY retired on the great sale he brokered for us.

It is my pleasure to recommend Patrick Bedley for your real estate needs. Patrick is a knowledgeable professional who made our recent purchase and sale a smooth and pleasant experience. His experience and grasp of the market helped us close both transactions in a short period of time. My wife and I were novices in the real estate market and relied Patrick’s experience to help us formulate a strategy to accomplish our dreams. He was always promptly responsive to our questions and needs, and more than helpful in every step of the process. In addition my wife and I both feel we have gained a friend.
Jerry and Virginia

My wife and I have known Patrick for almost five years now. When we first met at an open house in Morgan Hill we knew this is the realtor we wanted to be working with. At the time, we weren’t too serious about buying a home but I wanted to keep his contact information for when we were ready. We are so glad we did! He worked tirelessly showing us homes we were interested in. Patrick always listened to what our needs were and treated us like a good friend. He’s very personable, accommodating and easy to work with. Patrick’s professionalism made our home purchase smooth. We highly recommend him! Thank you again Patrick!
Matt and Winnie

I just wanted to let you know how happy we are in our new home! Also for us since it was our first home there was some anxiety getting into the market. You could not have been more helpful on all fronts working with us, the seller’s broker and our bank.
I know we could not have done it without you. Your vast knowledge of not just the area, but the market in general was invaluable.
Making sure we saw everything that was a good fit and steering us clear of ones that were not. As well as your excellent due diligence when we were set to put an offer in.
Your guidance and assurance all along the way made the biggest purchase of our lives as smooth and easy as possible!
We are so glad we did it and as I said couldn’t be happier.
As you say and you are so right “everyone is buying real estate you just might be buying it for someone else”.
Mike and Kat T.

We give Cindy a big two thumbs up! After 2 years of showing us numerous pices of properties, all in rural areas, we finally found the perfect property. Because the property was actually two separate parcel, there was an easement and surveys that needed to be handled by someone knowledgeable. We are so thankful we had Cindy. She did an excellent job. She is extremely thorough, addressing all our concerns, putting us at ease, and keeping us updated. Because there were numerous people involved with the purchase of this property, Cindy really did a wonderfully job keeping it together. We highly recommend Cindy Dalla and will continue to use her for all future transactions.
Joan

Cindy recently sold our home and some adjacent land. She was a tireless advocate and always did more than expected. In spite of complexities with the land sale, she worked vigorously to both understand and explain the land in a coherent manner. Cindy obtained multiple offers and was professional in the execution of her duties. We would have no hesitation recommending Cindy to any prospective buyer or seller of real estate. Thank you Cindy!
Yours truly,
Jim and Ann

You meet a few good genuine people in your life and Lee is one of them. He went out of his way to help us sell our house and buy our new home. We don`t say this lightly because having a good relationship has to be earned. His patience, experience and simply put “easy way of making everything make good sense” helped us to succeed in a very aggressive market. Thanks Lee you are truly one of the good guys.

Lee takes the time to understand the exact needs of his clients and will always go above and beyond to achieve great results to the satisfaction of his client. I have been very impressed with his skills, excellent follow up and his genuine approach to handle the needs of our family.
Lee did in fact exceed our expectations and made the whole process a very smooth and pleasant experience for us. He acted as a true advisor and a great expert. I know that I will always call for his services”

Let me tell you about Cindy Dalla. She is caring, conscientious, bubbly, kind, warm, energetic, outgoing go-getter lady. If you want a friend or realtor, Cindy is a perfect choice.

I met Cindy after the death of my brother. It was a very hard time for me. A friend recommended Cindy to sell my brother’s house. Upon meeting Cindy, I felt so at ease and knew she was the realtor I wanted.

Cindy is not a game player. She kept me kept the loop and returned my calls promptly. Sorry to say, I have had prima-donna realtors previously and Cindy is surely not one.

Cindy comes high in my book as she exceeded any and all expectations. She was not afraid to work and she did so much beyond the call of duty in getting my brother’s house sold. She is amazing. By the way, his house was in a run down condition and she kept us all up by her ideas of what could be done and what needed to be done to bring this house up to a clean sale-able home.

You would be doing yourself a big service and simplifying your situation by giving Cindy the opportunity to sell your property. I am so grateful to her for all she took on and freed me up from worry. Bless her!
Very truly yours,
Karen C.

I would like to let you know how happy and satisfied I am with my realtor, Cindy Dalla.

I started looking for a house in Silicon Valley in May 2013. I had gone through 2 realtors before I met Cindy in October. She is very professional, very knowledgeable, gives sound advise and has a very realistic outlook on what I can expect in a home within a specific price range.

Cindy is very responsive to my emails and phone calls. She is easy to reach by phone, and calls back right away when I leave a message. She eased my frustrations and stresses when it came to “bidding wars” and  buying a not so-perfect house.  She is a realtor that one can trust and depend upon to do the best for them.

Through her hard work, I finally found a house in Santa Clara that was quite perfect in terms of price and location. I have bought and sold homes before and have not seen any realtor negotiate like Cindy. She has exceptional negotiating ability. If I have to buy another property again, I will choose Cindy with no doubt.

I will recommend her to anybody who wants to purchase a home because she is outstanding and works very hard for her client’s best interest.
Sincerely, Belle L.

To whom it may concern,

Our experience with Lee Schmidt as our Realtor was superb! He was very knowledgeable and informative throughout the entire process of selling our home. He placed our home on the market and four days later, we had two offers above asking price!!! He got us more money for our home than we thought we could get and had the entire escrow closed in about a month. He also kept us informed and was easily accessible throughout the selling process of our home. He is very knowledgeable in what he does and definitely looks out for your best interests. We recommend Lee to anyone who is serious about selling their home. He will guide you and help you get more money. We highly recommend Lee. Thank you for making the sale of our home very pleasurable!
Manny and Alyise T.

We highly recommend Lee Schmidt for all your real estate needs.  He is professional and also very wise and knowledgeable in all areas of the real estate market.  He helped us sell our Manufactured Home at a time when none were selling in our park.  We were starting to think maybe we should lower our price, but he said to stand firm, our home was worth every penny – so we took his advice and held tight and prayed and waited and it sold in less than 3 months – we actually had 2 people bidding at the same time and we got a little over what we had originally told Lee we were hoping to get.  He is a great man to work with, he is honest and a man of integrity and also has a great sense of humor.  It is evident that he is working in an area that God has gifted him in.   We plan to be work with him again in all our future real estate needs.
Sincerely,
Patrick & Leslie W.

I would Highly Recommend Lee Schmidt if you are looking for a Good Realtor. He sold my mother’s house at a good price, Quickly efficiently! Took care of all the groundwork for the cleaning & Repairs, as we were not in the area. Lee is a Highly Knowledgeable & well qualified Senior specialist. Can’t thank him enough for the thorough Job he did!
Sincerely Jonathan S.

Dear Angelo,
I wanted to thank you for the outstanding real estate services that you provided. The services we received went above and beyond the call of duty. You were always available when we called and changed your schedule to meet our needs. You walked us through the process and made decisions to protect our interest.
When the purchase was completed you recommended the contractors who made the changes to the property that we wanted. After we partnered with those contractors you checked in with us to ensure my wife and I were satisfied customers. You also took time out of your schedule to meet with contractors when we were not available.
Once again Angelo, I want to thank you for doing an outstanding job and for your friendship and high level of professionalism.
Eric and Constance T.

I was fortunate to have Angelo Gorgulho represent me in the purchase of my home, Angelo was professional and a master negotiator. He always seemed to know what would happen, and was prepared. It was a very pleasant experience to purchase a home with Angelo working for us. I refer my friends to him, knowing he will take care of them!
Tracey S.

I can’t say enough good things about our experience selling our condo with Lee Schmidt. He’s an absolute professional with a deep understanding of the Silicon Valley housing market. He went out of his way to help us figure out what we would need to make out of the sale and made sure we got it. Throughout the whole process, he was unflappable and talked me down when I started to get anxious. We would have probably accepted less for our condo and found ourselves struggling to afford our next home if it hadn’t been for him.

He even found us a great agent in Portland. He was always in our corner and I would recommend him to anyone who was looking for a great real estate agent. If I wasn’t moving out of state, I would use him again myself without a moment’s hesitation.
Thanks so much for everything,
Deb and Dan

We worked with Lee to move from our home of 20 years in Grass Valley to San Jose to be closer to our granddaughter.  It was a difficult process, and Lee was absolutely instrumental in getting everything to work out perfectly.  He not only found us a wonderful condo in the Villages development, but worked with our realtor in Grass Valley, as well as the realtor of the woman selling the condo.  He coordinated everything, and made sure everyone involved was on the timeline that we needed.  He was patient, thorough, and made sure to explain every step of the process.  He has followed up with us on several occasions, even though the sale was complete several months ago to make sure we were adjusting to our new area.  We thank Lee for all of his hard work, and caring nature.  We would recommend him highly to anyone trying to buy or sell a home!

Sincerely,
Tom & Sally R.

We are really excited we hired Lee to be the realtor to sell our home. Within one week of Lee listing our home, we received an offer. Lee followed responsible processes and procedures to properly qualify the buyer and the offer was efficiently and properly administered to successful closure of the sale. Thank you Lee for working hard and efficiently”

Gregg and Karen K.

I retired a couple of years ago and had been thinking about selling my home here in California to move to another state.

I started by contacting realtors on-line.  I have received several responses from different realty companies.  During the next three months which it took me to “de-clutter” and get my home ready for the market.

Lee stayed in contact and took the time to understand why I was looking to selling my home and trying to relocate.  When he completed his market research I was pleasantly surprised at the listing price for my home, which was more than I thought. Lee explained the selling process and reassured me that my home would sell. Lee kept me informed during the entire process.

Lee was very instrumental in helping me understand the multiple offers I received.  Why some stood out and seemed to be much better than other offers.

During the entire process I felt that Lee always put me first.  His dedication and reliability are without question. I would have no hesitation recommending Lee to my friends and family.

In the springtime of this year, my wife Raylene and I had the occasion to look for a new home as a replacement for the one we were selling in Gilroy, CA. Within this process came the search for a realtor. We interviewed a few prospects, some of which had been suggested by friends of ours. Once the interview process was complete, we decided on Lee Schmidt. Having met previously, we were no strangers but we had not had the opportunity to interact professionally. Getting serious about the purchase of a home represents something which one doesn’t treat lightly. Reviewing Lee’s history in the business wasn’t too difficult since he has been involved in the business for a number of years, especially in the South Bay Area which was our primary area of interest.

After making our choice and relating to him what our primary criteria were, the search began. Several leads were developed as well as a number of visits to prospective purchases.  Lee was really our eyes and ears and represented our interests the way I felt an agent should. I wanted an agent that would be my “go to guy” for everything related to the purchase. That individual was Lee. He kept us unformed, gave valid suggestions, pointed out various areas of concern relative to individual houses, and generally guided us to the home we eventually purchased. He knew what we wanted and separated the wheat from the chaff. Where Lee was most helpful was during the final offer process. He was able to virtually anticipate the sellers’ reaction to our offer and zero in on an offer that was accepted. This takes experience, foresight, and Intuition. Fortunately for us, Lee has these qualities in his realtor “tool kit.”

Lee put us first. His integrity, dedication, and reliability are without question.  I have had the occasion to use a realtor  in the past on two or three occasions and Lee is at the top of the list. I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends, family, or colleagues without hesitation.

Curtiss and Raylene N.

Being a first time homebuyer, I was nervous about the home buying process. Luckily my lender set me up with Lee Schmidt. After my first meeting with Lee, all my nerves and fears were gone, and I knew I was in good hands. I felt like Lee really listened to our cares and concerns, and took them into consideration when showing us homes. He had our back during the entire process and continuously updated us as things evolved. I loved that Lee was constantly sending updates about new homes on the market, which made my life much easier. He was always available by phone and quick to respond to my many emails. With Lee, we found the perfect home for us, and with very little stress. I would definitely recommend Lee to my family, friends, and co-workers.

Buying a home in the bay area is a challenge and being a first time home buyer in the area is an even bigger challenge, after about a year of looking and putting in offers and 3 different realtors we were about to give up. That is when our loan agent referred us to Don Rock, not only did Don help us to successfully buy our first home but his insight and positive attitude made an intimidating experience much more comfortable. We cannot begin to say how much we appreciated the number of hours he spent with us in person, and by phone, keeping us totally informed every step of the way – morning and night. Don showed extraordinary professionalism and we could not have had better support. Don is obviously in real-estate because he likes people and made us feel like we were working with a friend and not just a realtor. We will definitely recommend Don Rock to our colleagues and friends looking to buy or sell a house in the bay area.

We could not have been happier with our experience working with Lee on the recent sale of our home.  Our home was on the market for 7 months with another agency before we signed on with Lee.  With his excellent marketing skills and positive upbeat attitude he was able to sell our home in less than 4 weeks at a great price.  Lee was on top of every detail throughout the entire selling process and made sure everything went smoothly and efficiently.  His communication skills are excellent.  He kept us updated every step of the way and whenever we called or emailed, he always responded quickly.  We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Lee and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Lee Schmidt is a very respectable person and looks out for the best interest for the client and not his commission. I have bad experiences in the past and they have put me in a bad sittuation. Lee is definitely not that way he will make sure that it is best for you as the client. He also makes everything very smooth and as little hassel for you so that way you are not inconvienced in any way. He is very quick at responding and has a lot of knowledge on what he does. Thank you Lee!

— Jessica Malia

 

Our experience with Lee Schmidt spanned over several months with him representing us both with selling our home and the purchase of a new home.  Our home sold quickly and for more than the listing price, primarily due to Lee’s expertise with the Market.  He is very knowledgable with the process for either side of a transaction, is very responsive, patient and tenacious.  He listens to the needs of his clients, is very flexible and thinks “outside the box”.

Ed and Laura S.

 

Very professional, knowledgeable.  Always looking for his customer’s best interest.  Honest and was available for me any time I needed to get in contact with him to answer questions.  All around fun and good guy to work with. Very satisfied with my experience with him in selling and purchasing a home in a timely manner.

— Daniel and Espie M.

 

Lee was fantastic. He went above and beyond with a transaction that was complicated and confusing.  He explained everything to us in a way that we could understand.  I can’t say enough about him and his professionalism.  Thank you so very much Lee and hope to work with you again in the future.

My husband and I are first time home-buyers.  We are also pretty new to California (2 years). So we were looking for an agent that would  be gentle with us, but also be as informative as possible.

As we started to interview agents, we noticed two common traits – they were on their time and wanted to quickly get us in a house at the top of our budget to maximize their commission.  We wanted someone who would take the time to understand our needs and wants.  In our first meeting with Lee, he sat with us for almost 2 hours figuring out what we were looking for in a home (all the others gave us about 20 minutes), so we knew immediately it was a good fit.

He followed up with suggested homes, answered all our random questions about foundations, roofing, painting, termites, and the whole nine yards.  Plus, he’s got some great connections to contractors who can quickly tell you how much something is going to cost to fix or replace.

In our quest to buy a home with great living space and a decent lot size, we decided to go with a fixer upper.  There were plenty of homes at higher prices that were move-in ready, but Lee understood that we wanted this one in particular.  From putting in the initial offer to pushing the seller to fix problems BEFORE we closed to being present at our signing, Lee was there and on our side.

With Lee’s help, we were able to get the house we wanted at a price that made sense for our budget.  We highly recommend using Lee for your next home purchase.  You’ll know right away that you’re in great hands.

Kwajo and Laurie A.

We began working together in 2004 to find me a place to buy. We bid on several places but because I was unwilling to bid above asking, we kept losing out. I appreciated all your advice but more importantly I really appreciated it even more that you respected my decision to bid within my financial means and that you never gave up on me as a potential buyer. Over the 8 years we worked together on this, you were diligent in sending me information on places for sale in the specific areas I cared about and visited many places with me. I was very picky and you never tried to push me to accept less or accept something different. When we finally had a place within a price target I felt comfortable with, I greatly appreciated your patience in explaining how a short sale would work and keeping me updated as it moved through the ‘slow’ process. As I experienced hiccups in my loan applicationprocess, you were supportive when I changed loan agents even though it might delay our closing and stayed on top of me, the loan agent, the title company and the seller to ensure things kept moving. What’s even more remarkable is that you never focused on your fee but always focused on helping me find a place that would suit my individual preferences and needs. And then after the close, helped me deal w/ finding the respective Utility information to start the process of moving service to me. Thanks for all your support. I’m looking forward to being completely moved in and would highly recommend you to anyone buying or selling a place, especially first time buyers/sellers. Thanks for positive attitude, flexibleness, diligence and professionalism. May God Bless all that you do!

Cheers, Tammi (first time home owner as of March 15, 2012)

 

Hi,  Lee just wanted to say thank you so much for helping me with my house, I did not know what to do. You where so helpful and understanding about my problem. With all that I was going through, lack of money and people calling me all of the time, you took care of everything. I couldn’t be  happier, nor be in better hands than with you. Thank you again for your wonderfull help. It went really fast too.

— Cathy K.

 

“I just wanted you to know how happy I am with the place, but most of all I am so pleased with you as our Realtor. You represented both sides and truly took care of both of us. Your follow through was impeccable. You took care of everything you said you would, as I felt you did for Rose also, it was like you took a personal interest. I didn’t expect the hall light to be replaced but it was, you even took care of the opening that bothered my daughter. I really feel you stepped up beyond what a normal realtor does. Thank you for making me comfortable is asking future questions.I will be giving my highest recommendations about you to all my friends and co-workers. It was a real pleasure doing business with you.”

— Erin T

 

My family and I want to thank you for your services in the sale of our homes. Your knowledge in the selling process and relationships with different inspectors saved us money and time. Your persistence and integrity paid off and we will be happy to provide a recommendation if you ever need one.

— Daniel and Elsa V.

 

Lee is a very professional and hands on realtor. In 2004 we wanted to sell our home. Lee came to our house, explained exactly what we should do to prepare, declutter and stage the home for sale. Not only did his strategy help us sell the house, we sold it in 4 days for over our asking price. Then he assisted us in finding a new home. We are fussy people, so this took several months. Lee never gave up on the search and we eventually found the perfect home. That’s why in 2010, when my father passed away, all I had to do is call Lee. He made sure that the sale of his house went as quickly and as smooth as possible. My family and I not only consider Lee a great realtor, we consider him part of the family. To say the least, we trust him completely.

— Baltazar and Charleen M.

 

Lee was incredibly helpful to us in both the sale of our home, and the purchase of our new home. He listened to what we wanted, and made sure we saw everything that came onto the market as soon as it hit. He made everything easy in a not-so-easy market, and we would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat! Lee even helped us find people to do the work on our new house, we couldn’t be happier!

— Tom and Kristin R.

 

“Being first time home buyers, we had multiple questions and concerns regarding the process of both short sales and bank owned houses. Lee was always available to answer our questions and discuss our options. Lee always listened to us and made sure we were comfortable and truly happy with the outcome of every stage of purchasing our home. Lee negotiated with the banks as though his money was on the line, which is a true sign of a trustworthy Realtor.”
