I was a little hesitant when I started looking. Damian van loon promptly reached out to me and accommodate a time for me to meet with him. We got along very well. He stayed on top of sending me listing. There was no pressure. The process was pretty smooth. All and all I now have a home and can thank Damain for all his help. I would also like to add that the mortgage team Leader 1 Damian used are top notch and very knowldgable and friendly. Thanks

The Gafford Group at Simply Vegas

The Best in Nevada Simply Vegas Real Estate
The Gafford Group is in the top 1% of all REALTORS nationwide; we sell more homes in a month or even a week than most agents do in a year. Experience matters, we negotiate more deals with more people than just about anyone and this will definitely give you an edge when it comes time to get you the best deal buying or selling your home.

Our company, Simply Vegas is the largest boutique firm in the state of Nevada. We have 350 agents, and we are #3 in total listing volume, number 1 and 2 have over 4000 agents’ combined and the fourth place company has over 800. So as you can see we are a company full of top performers.

Why that’s important to you? Simply Vegas is this the only firm in Las Vegas that has serious hiring standards, unlike other brokerages that will hire, really anybody. All of our agents were vetted to ensure minimum experience and service standards.

Simply Vegas has a larger market share than any Keller Williams, RE/Max or Coldwell Banker.

Simply Vegas did the largest single transaction in the history of Las Vegas 187mm- the Veer Towers acquisition. Why should it matter to you? If one of the largest hedge funds in the world trusts our firm with their transaction, I think you should feel OK about us too.

We sell more homes over 2MM as a percentage than any other firm. Why is this important to you? Because I only know one way to do this. I don’t dumb down my service based on the price of the home you’re selling. It doesn’t matter to me if you are selling a $2 million house or $200,000 house, the level of service will be exactly the same, it’s the five diamond, Saks Fifth Avenue level of service.

From the moment Ara became our agent, I knew We were in the best hands possible. We are first time home buyers, and Ara made the entire process informative and empowering for us. Guiding us through each form of the home buying process and educating us on all our rights along the way. With Ara's altruistic determination to provide the best possible experience and service to her clients, as well as the support and expertise from The Gafford Group of Simply Vegas, we were able to trust in the team working for us and actually enjoy the process. I give my highest recommendation to Ara and her team with The Gafford Group and there's no other agent who I would trust more for all of my realty needs!

I recently moved into an American West home on March 28th 2019 and was privileged to receive expert assistance from Dave Jones. Dave was always accessible to me and was by my side every step of the way through the home searching process and found my home on his own through a thorough assessment of my needs. He advised me on my loan rates as well as what to expect from my home builder. Overall, I am very satisfied with the assistance provided by Dave in helping me move into my 'dream' home and I cannot overemphasize the importance of an expert relator who does not impose his wishes on you. I would absolutely recommend Dave to my friends and family for a job well done.

Thank you so much for everything Dave!

They helped our family relocate from So Cal; not only did they find us the perfect property but also helped us with all our other need. We highly recommend The Gifford Group and were extremely happy with our purchase.

Jacqueline and Eugenia helped my fiancé and I purchase our first home together. They were very professional from the start. I especially enjoyed how there was no pressure felt during our very first walk through of the home. It gave us the chance to really check the place out and make sure it best fit our needs. Then through the offer and closing processes, they helped us with so many questions we had, and were very patient with us. They did a very thorough job through inspections and were always available and prompt when we needed them. There were even times when they would check-in with us when they hadn't heard from us in a while, just to make sure we were doing okay! They worked really hard to get us the best deal on the house, and we were so grateful for them! It really made the home buying process easy, and we could not have done it without Jacqueline and Eugenia.

Damian and my husband one day they where talk on the phone ask him are you look to buy a house they talklike couples days , he even forgot about him, one day we were sitting at home watching TV, talking about where we should rent an apartment, seeing how our lease was almost up and didn't wish to renew it, a few minutes later my husband was going through his voicemails, that is when he come across Damian's voicemail, he listened the voicemail, then he turned to me, and said i don't know who this is. so i told him, call him back, so he did, and it was with that one .phone call that changed our life, we talked to him and made an appointment to meet. the next week we went to meet Damian at Simply Vegas. we talked and talked for almost an hour, right away Damian made us feel comfortable and we were able to tell him everything, that we are looking to buy a house and the situation we were in. and he told he can help get a house by the end of year. me and my husband looked at each other and looked at each other and said that is in one month. Damian said we work together we can do. of course i didn't him. the reason i didn't believe him was because we met with so many real estate agents and none of able to deliver what they said to us. But Damian lived up to his promise, he want beyond and above our expectations to make sure we got the house we wanted. i will admit it wasn't easy, but everytime we got frustrated and stressed we called Damian, at end of each phone call Damian boosted our hope. and today we are homeowners, and everytime we come home, this wouldn't have been possible without the Gafford Group at Simply Vegas, without Damian. he recommended my family to call Damian when they are ready to buy a house. Damian thank you for working with us through this process.

After my wife and I decided to retire in the Las Vegas area after many years living in the mid-west, we worked with Ashley Toussaint at Simply Vegas on finding just the right home. She was awesome to work with......very professional and patient with our ever changing ideas about what we wanted. We also appreciated her flexibility with showings on short notice, including nights and weekends. After a 6 month search, we finally closed on our beautiful home in Henderson. I would highly recommend Ashley to assist anyone looking for a home in the Las Vegas area. She was great!

Our agent Matt Shiel was very conscientous, stayed on top of everything and was a terrific help. We were very pleased and will now use him to sell a property we have in Henderson. Thanks for your, good work, Matt!

From the moment I filled out the online info to have information on homes sent to my email to the first home tour Matt Shiel was outstanding to work with. Matt is professional yet personable. He is attentive to your questions and concerns and prompt on returning calls and emails. His knowledge of the Las Vegas area market is helpful and his willingness to find an answer if he doesn't know it off the top of his head makes for easy decision making. Our home buying experience was truly pleasant.

Michele was a pleasure to have as my real estate agent. Michele never left any questions unanswered and always responded promptly. She is a shark that gets the job done and gives her all.

We would definitely recommend Michele to all of our family and friends.

I recently bought a home with Michele Rodriguez from Simply Vegas, and to put it simple, the whole experience was a blast. Michele facilitated our first home buying experience in all aspects. She made sure that as home buyers we were getting paid for and that we weren't missing out on anything. Michele is a true professional, guiding us through our home buying journey despite being on vacation. My family truly appreciates her hard work and dedication, and I will be recommending her to all our family and friends. Once again, Thank you!

Michele Rodriguez did a fantastic job as our realtor. I felt informed about what to expect buying my first home in the current Las Vegas market from the beginning. She kept on top of our deal and was tough when she needed to be. I would highly recommend Michele. We are very happy with our home!

Michele is an absolute rock star. She’s incredibly hard working and made us feel like she didn’t have any other clients because she dedicated so much time to us. We’re from the Midwest and had no idea of the complexities real estate transactions in Vegas, thank God Michele guided us through it all. An 11 on a scale of 10.

Damian Van Loon was most helpful during our new home search and purchase. Since we live out of town and plan to move to the Las Vegas area very soon, he was more than accommodating with us because we could not always be in town. Mr. Van Loon was always available or got back to us in a timely manner. His great communication skills eased a lot of our concerns during this stressful time. He is straight forward and professional.
