Galo did a great job of marketing and selling our house. We met with him a year ago and decided not to put it on the market, but knew that he was who we would list with based on his energy and expertise. A year later, we contacted Galo again and had him list the house. It sold in 12 days!

We had an excellent experience working with Galo. Galo helped with the sale of our existing home and the purchase of our new home. He was patient and a great "sense maker" when we had questions. His organization and communication skills are second to none! Throughout the entire process, he represented our interests with honesty and integrity. He made us feel our business was valued and appreciated. We were very pleased with the work that Galo did on our behalf and would recommend him without reservation for any client interested in selling on buying property! Less ... More

Galo was fantastic. Even our title company agent commented on how Galo really had his ducks in a row. We would absolutely use him again. His pictures of the property are great, he is effecient and is willing to work with sellers to get the price they want for their home. He thinks outside the box to make it a win for everyone. He does a great job following up and not letting anything fall through the cracks.

Galo Garrido is Top Notch! He will take the time to walk you through every step of the Sale and/or the purchase of your next home based on your desires. He was able to negotiate the deal of a lifetime for the purchase of our new home! The sale of our house went extremely smooth as well. Galo's experience and knowledge will set you at ease. I would recommend him to all of my friends and family in a heartbeat.

This was my first home-buying experience and I couldn't be happier with the end result. Galo is extremely knowledgeable from start to finish regarding every single aspect of real estate - lots of them of which I didn't have any knowledge beforehand. He is reliable, extremely responsive, catered to my needs, and understood quickly what I was looking for and made sure that he found it for me. His best quality is that is 100% honest and straight-forward in all of his dealings with his clients. He GENUINLY wanted me to be happy and find the perfect home, and I did. I will stick with him for as long as he stays in the business, and whole heartedly recommend him to anyone who is serious about buying or selling a home, and wants the advantage of having the best realtor in their corner. I couldn't be happier working with him during this entire process - he made EVERYTHING run smoothly!!!!!! Less ... More

One of the members of the Galo Garrido Group showed us homes we wanted to see. We only had to look at five houses and found the one we wanted to make an offer on. Galo took over at that point. The way Galo negotiated our offer got accepted in one day. He has been very responsive and got things signed timely. He was also able to move up our close date!! We were extremely satisfied with the Galo Garrido Group and would recommend them to anyone looking for a home.

I found Galo through a new co-worker when I relocated to the Denver area. Galo was very understanding of our needs. My wife found a teaching position and we needed to be in the Broomfield/Westminister area. Galo would show houses to me and then on weekends (when my wife could come into town), would show her around. It was completely frustrating because we would find a great house, think about making an offer, and it would already be sold by the time we could make the offer. This happened several times, and we were getting discouraged. Galo remained calm and patient, telling us he would still find us the perfect house. Tough market aside, he found us the perfect house. Convientent for us both, perfect for the kids, and at a great price. We got the house (lower than appraised value), and are happy as can be. Galo knows what he is doing. He knows so much about the whole area. He will discuss your needs and work with you to find some great properties. Less ... More

We found Galo online and had him come to the house we were ready to out on the market and after he came in and looked around he told us his expectations as well and we got to tell him what we wanted and he actually listened where the other person we talked to didn't. Our house was on the market and under contract with in 3 days. The process went very smooth and fast for us. We also bought a house with Galo and now he is all we will work with.

Galo is an amazing realtor! If you need someone knowledgeable and aggressive to fight for you, he is the guy. We recently bought a home in Golden, CO and it wouldn't have happened without him. We saw the house after being on the market for 2 hours and we had an offer in within 2 hours of viewing it. There were 3 other parties interested in the house and with Galo's knowledge, expertise and negotiation skills, we had a contract! Galo answered every question in such a timely manner and we even closed 10 days earlier than expected. As far as home buying goes, this couldn't have been a better experience! Galo is amazing and will fight for you to get your dream home! You will not regret working with Galo! Less ... More

As a couple needing to move to Las Vegas for health issues, we were desperate to have an realtor that understood the urgency of selling our current home and helping get closure on both the current and future home as quickly as possible. Galo was there for us on both fronts to insure we received all the help and expertise required to do the move. We can't recommend Galo high enough. He gave us expertise, compassion and reliability in a tough situation based on my husband's health issues. Others in my family have recommended Galo to me in 2001 and he has NEVER let us down.

When we told Galo what we were looking for in a house based on school district, price, layout, and upgrades, he was great at finding just what we wanted. After dealing with a different realtor and feeling as if we were not being "taken care of" we went with Galo. He went above and beyond what we expected and put the joy back into buying a home, he listened to what we were looking for and he only showed us homes within our guidelines, then finally once we found our house it was a piece of cake from there on even though I'm sure there was a lot "going on behind the scence". We only had to sign a few documents that were explained in detail by Galo and made it seem almost too easy to get into our new home! If you want to truly enjoy your home buying experience, have an agent that has integrity, honesty and cares for your best interest then Galo is your man! He will deliver and you will not be let down!

I am very satisfied with the services provided by Galo. He was responsive and followed through with our requests. He successfully negotiated with the buyer's agent and was able to sell our unit before the contract expired. Our only regretable experience was the difficulty we had selling the condo, which of course is no reflection on Galo's abilities.

We have used Galo with assisting us with buying and selling a couple homes, each time we used Galo he has sold our homes within 2 weeks and the homes he has shown were exactly what we where looking for. We told him exactly the area we where looking at and the type of home and he found us that home without spending several weeks looking. Galo is very personable and professional and gave us great advise and information on great Lenders.

Galo Garrido was recommended to me by a co-worker, who had just purchased a house with Galo's help. He was happy with Galo's work, and knew Galo would be able to help us. Galo did a wonderful job helping us find our house. We were relocating to the area and knew only a little of the area. He listened to what we wanted, mad soem recommendations and showed us houses that would meet our needs. He was very patient with us, showing houses to me, then showing the same houses to my wife when she came into town on weekends. Houses were moving quickly, and several times houses we would have made offers on were sold before we could make a move. Galo never gave up on us. Eventually he found us the perfect house, and was again patient with us as we worked through some financing issues. He also negotiated a great deal for us. My wife and I are very happy with Galo's help, and would highly recommend him as your next Real Estate professional. Less ... More

Galo is one of the finest realtors I have ever worked with. His attention to details, understanding what his client needs and timely and punctual scheduling of home showings is impeccable. His follow up on questions is outstanding. We spent over 5 months looking for a house in Denver as the market was changing underneath us. Galo was consistent from the first day until we finally closed on a house. You will be hard pressed to find a better realtor with the experience, commitment and follow up than Galo. Less ... More

Our family was put in a difficult position as our father passed away and our mother was placed in an "assisted living" environment. My brother, sister, and I were left to clean-up and prepare a townhouse and a single family residence for immeadiate sale. Mr. Galo Garrido came highly recommended from a close friend and after interviewing several real estate professionals, my siblings and I selected Mr. Garrido to market and sell the two seperate properties. In short, the two properties sold soon after they were listed and Mr. Garrido kept us informed and up to date throught the whole process. If you want to sell your home and NOT simply list it, Real Estate Professional Galo Garrido is your solution. We thank him for everything he did for us during this stressful situation.

Galo is a consummate professional. He is always available, honest, and completely reliable. I have worked with Galo on both sides of the transaction. He sold our home within a week when we were transfered overseas. He then helped us purchase our new home upon our return. Both transactions were quick and easy with very little stress. I highly recommend Galo for any real estate matter.

Galo has been in the real estate industry in Colorado for a long time, and is also a Colorado native. He knows the area, and he knows many of the other realtors (and they know him!), which can certainly help in the event of negotiations. He was very informative about the process of both selling and buying our residences, and always made thoughtful suggestions/recommendations during both scenarios. He really listened to our needs/wants and was readily available (even at night) to answer our questions or update us on our sale/search. Overall, he is very comfortable to work with and really takes a genuine interest in his clients. Highly recommended! Less ... More

Selling a home and buying a new home all at the same time can be a stressful event, but when you have the right agent working with you and "for you" it makes a huge difference. From the start, Galo made some great suggestions to get our old home sold. Everything he did to represent our home (photos, selling sheet, etc.) was top notch, beautiful and professionally done! We had a ton of showings and had several offers (above asking price) immediately on our home. On the other end, buying our new home was a tricky short sale process, which we did not have any prior experience with. Galo was our advocate every step of the way. I felt like he guided us through the process with "our" best interest in mind, making sure we were comfortable with all decisions and handling all the details for us. In the end, we got a great deal on our beautiful new home and our closing went as scheduled (not always the case in a short sale situation). Galo's experience truly showed when trying to get our deal done. Three words that come to mind when I think of how Galo handled this whole process for me and my family are: trust, knowledge, and professionalism. We cannot thank him enough for the hours he put in and all his hard work. Less ... More

Galo was very professional in the way he went about the sale of our home. He did a masterful job of keeping us informed as to the progress he was making as well as the feedback potential buyers had on our home. In a market that has been somewhat depressed Galo sold our home for what we were asking and knew what that price was. Galo Garrido is a consummate professional and I would recommend him to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home.

As a family, we have had at least 10 experiences with Galo as our realtor. We have had young families buying their first home, to family members selling homes lived in for a lifetime. In every transaction Galo was very impressive in his knowledge of the market and extremely forthright as to the expectations we could realistically achieve. He was sympathetic to the many emotions that occur in lifestyle changes, at all times showing he had our best interests in mind. He handled many tough negotions with integrity and honesty, always staying calm and positive. He is quick to return calls and set up appointments in a timely manner, while acting patient and taking the time to listen and explore all options. The end result always met our goals, and with his knowledge of the closing process, it was always a smooth and legal transaction, never expereiencing problems that couldn't be resolved with his expertise. We have complete trust in Galo, and recommend him to friends, family and co-workers any chance we get. He always gets the job done to our satisfaction!! Less ... More

Galo treated me w/ respect and honor. He understood my goals and made sure we met them before foreclosure. This meant extensive negotiations w/ the bank, the condo board and the buyers which Galo worked at diligently for a small comission. He has my respect and admiration.

We were lucky to have Galo representing our interests with a double-bankruptcy foreclosure home in Golden. Through all the attorneys, bank issues and regulatory red tape Galo was prompt and professional. When another buyer's offer fell through on the house we wanted, we depended on him to pick up the pieces and put them together for us and he did it. Patient explanation and support driven on our behalf are what got us the home we wanted.

My husband and I were looking to buy our first home and Galo was recommended to us by a long time friend. Not only was Galo extremely helpful in locating a house in Longmont but his office staff helped to keep my husband and I on track while keeping our specific house needs in mind (ie: 2 car garage instead of 1 and looking at homes with certain square footage requirements.) Although it took us several months to locate a home, Galo was able to locate the perfect house in the perfect part of town to suit our needs that fit our very tight budget. He also helped us get the best deal on the house and since it was a foreclosure, also assisted in getting the bank to fix several items before we moved in. Our closing was even really quick and to the point, 30 mins of signing and reviewing documents and we were off to go move into our new home. When it came to communication, Galo has exceeded any expectations that I could have ever set, there were several times where I swore that he didn't sleep until the items that we had requested be taken care of were indeed taken care of. The next time that anyone asks if I know a Realtor, Galo and his team will be hands down the one that I will recommend. Less ... More

I have worked with Galo several times and at this point value his expertise to the extent that I consider him a partner of sorts. I cannot imagine executing any real estate transaction without first speaking with him, at the very least. He always asks the right questions and gives me advice when I ask for it. These are traits that one might think are commonplace but truly are not. I give Galo the highest recommendation!
