ask this question.
Is it because they want the cheapest deal out there?
course we at Gallo Real Estate Ltd. need to be competitive.
And we are.
But we are all about full service. It costs us time and money to go the extra mile to make sure that no corner
is cut when it comes to fully representing your best interests. Consider that the cheapest realtor in town may not be able
to provide you with what it takes to fully and completely market your property and take the transaction from the initial stages
to the successful completion of the sale.
you don't pay me a cent until I bring you an acceptable offer and your house keys and their money changes hands.
We will fully discuss how much Gallo Real Estate's commission
rate is and how much any Co-operating Broker can expect to get paid when we meet in person

I have set up a marketing system that stands among the best in the area,
plus I will cancel the listing agreement at anytime
if you are not 100% satisfied with my service.

And, as a certified Staging ProfessionalTM,
I offer FREE Staging Consultation
and Showcasing with every listing!
I am trained in the same techniques that those television shows we love to watch
use to prepare a home for a speedy, top-dollar sale. It’s amazing what a staging consultation plus a little elbow grease
My goal is
to have my sellers spend as little as possible (preferably nothing!)
on preparing their home for sale. Save your money for your new home!
