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 over 500 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.

I am Canadian and owned a condo in Vegas. Kelsey was recommended from another Canadian client. Never met her, but when we spoke on the phone she was so easy and kind to speak with. She did everything I asked of her and she sold my condo. I so recommend calling Kelsey if you need a realtor...She's Your Girl!

If you want someone who can last all 12 rounds of the boxing match that the real estate market is nowadays. You want Michele Rodriguez in your corner. She is TENACIOUS.

She is funny and breaks things down for you, so no matter what grade level you are, you would be able to understand. She doesn’t make you feel dumb for asking questions and she is easy on the eyes.

So in conclusion, if you want someone who’s gonna work that corner and throw down for you. You want Michele. Periodt.

Austin was more than helpful in finding us our dream home. He was extremely communicative and easy to reach to answer any of our questions at all times. The process went so smoothly and he was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very knowledgeable about the process and was a great resource. He offered his opinion when I asked and helped me to consider things I hadn’t thought of. I’ll definitely reach out to Austin in the future and I recommend him to all my friends and family!

I can't say enough about how hard Amie Anderson worked to put us in our new house! She was always available and answered every question. She followed up consistently with the many sellers that we dealt with, and even went to bat for us with the bank officer when we had a snafu with the bank during our closing process. Amie is the best!

Review for Alyssa Mae Johnson:

My husband Mike and I were extremely fortunate to find Alyssa Johnson from Simply Vegas Real Estate. We had moved here from California 2 years ago.

We had two other homes in California that were rentals which we sold last year and needed to buy other rental homes here in Las Vegas for a 1031 exchange. Time was of the essence to find these homes for rentals within a 45 day period.

Alyssa she very knowledgeable, professional, diligent and highly personable from start to finish. She immediately started looking for rental homes for us to buy; sending daily emails of homes for sale within our price range and area desired. She was extremely helpful and reliable through the whole process making it a great stress-free, smooth experience and we would highly recommend Alyssa. It was a true pleasure working with her and everything was accomplished in a timely manner.

Rudy has done such an amazing job as my real estate agent! He was prompt, full of energy and was able to answer all of my questions or direct me to the person I needed to ask. He’s found home for myself and all of my family. He’s the best in the game and he will definitely be my real estate agent again in the future when I buy again. Definitely recommend him!

Erica Becker went above and beyond for us! Very professional, very friendly, explains everything and is very honest. She did practically everything for me!! Since I was buying out of state, she did all the running around, and answered all our questions day or night. It's hard to imagine any other realtor or real estate office doing all of this and making you feel like you're their only client!! I would highly recommend this group, especially Erica!!! She cares, she's on top of everything and really knows her stuff! Thank you, for everything you did to make my move so easy, and with less stress. Knowing you were taking care of it all!!

Michael Copenhaver is simply amazing! He was very professional and personable, making us feel comfortable every step of the way. He explained everything to us a manner that we would understand and we loved how he was always available to answer any and all questions we had. He made himself available when we would drive in from Los Angles to view houses we were interested in and he even recorded a few houses for us to view when we were unable to make the drive! Getting to know each other during the process was easy and we are so happy to call him a friend now. We will definitely recommend him to anyone who is thinking of purchasing in Las Vegas.

I cannot express how grateful I am for Erica Becker and her team. Their attention to details, professionalism while also being personable are unmatched in my experience. This is my 3rd home purchase, and start to finish I always felt like I matter and I was being heard. Erica understands that I am a busy career woman and single mom. She and her team ensured I had consistent and timely updates and communication. They respectfully messaged me to ensure I was able to respond to emails from them or the mortgage team. I will absolutely use Erica and her team should I need to buy another property. Thank you!

Kami was a god send. He catered to my every need, which was great considering this was my first purchase. He was very professional and great communicating the entire process. I am so happy I chose Kami and the Gafford Group for my purchase. I will recommend these guys to everyone I know. All the hard work was greatly appreciated.

My husband and I were impressed with the Gafford Group with their professionalism, care, and integrity. In particular our Real Estate Agent, Julien Racine, exceeded our expectations every step of the way through the home search and buying experience. Without him - I'm incredibly doubtful we would have found the RIGHT home for us. I can't recommend Julien enough...he's a gem of a professional and went above and beyond. The house he helped us find and close on was above our expectations. He took time to understand our preferences, needs, and also provided great insights about the Vegas market that really gave us confidence and trust. Highly recommend Julien and can't wait until we either sell or buy our next home. He's our Agent for life!

Kelsey Pyun from Simply Vegas did an amazing job finding me a new condo. She is super detailed oriented and made sure everything was covered and clearly communicated at every step of the process. I highly recommend her.

Michele Rodriguez was the best Realtor that I have ever worked with. She is a consummate professional and kept a very difficult deal alive and saw it through to a successful closing. She is calm, patient and a great communicator. I will definitely refer her to all my friends and colleagues interested in Las Vegas real estate.

I also want to praise the Gafford team in general. Everyone on the team did a great job and were extremely responsive and helpful, including Taryn in the Concierge group. She was a big help to me since I am new to Las Vegas and needed help finding qualified vendors and contractors. This is a great service that sets your group apart from other firms.

Thanks for the great job! Keep up the good work!

We couldn't miss the opportunity to express our gratitude to Michele for working to ensure the arduous task of selling our home and buying a new one was as smooth as possible. Yes, there were some stressful days but she handled it like a champ and showed amazing resilience and professionalism. She told us it would all be worth it in the end...and it was! Thank you for hanging in there with us and being an outstanding, knowledgeable realtor, Michele.

We have been working with Michael Copenhaver for over six months on two land acquisitions and helping us find a rental house for us to live in while we design and our dream home here in the Vegas area.

We found him too always be very professional, very willing to help in practically any way possible (including going above and beyond the norm) and being a VERY good listener. While we were sometimes a little hesitant on some houses and issues Michael was very receptive and able to adapt to our changing needs and desires in many aspects during our just concluded search.

We would both would highly recommend Michael and look to be friends with him for a long time coming.

The service I received from Amanda in my home buying search could not have been any better. She provided the MLS shopping experience in preparation for the real search when I got to LV.She was able to answer all my questions. It seemed she was always available to help me see properties that I wanted and she has a great working knowledge of the housing market and all parameters involved in that in addition to her knowledge of pertinent community info that would impact the properties. She also works well with others agents and her diplomatic abilities were pivotal in my purchase of the property I had chosen. I feel she is a great asset to the Gafford Group and represents their strong commitment to serving the LV area with highly ethical and very friendly service.

I would definitely recommend Michelle Rodriguez and John Gafford at Simply Vegas. Our experience with them was fabulous. They have tremendous resources that helped us with various issues related to home ownership. They kept us in the loop the entire time and were always accessible to talk. I would use them again should the need develop.

Ore should really be named Super Man. My family and I are moving from Maryalnd out to Las Vegas as it has always been a dream of ours. From day 1 Ore has been the absolute best. He has treated us like family and has made a very stressful process a great experience. Ore was determined to find us our dream home. I'm sure we must of had him go to every corner of Las Vegas to look at houses. What I respect the most is his professional attitude and knowledge not only of the area but of the industry. I tend to not be a patient person especially when dealing with such a large purchase and want to know what's going on at all times. Ore blew my expectations on communication out of the water!! He always called and text, to give me updates and to just see how my family was doing which meant alot to us. I simply can't say enough how great Ore was and how much of a pleasure it was to work with him and his team. If you ever want to buy a house Ore and team are the people to go to.

My family and have had the pleasure of working with Amber Anderson of Simply Vegas Real Estate. Previously I was working with another company until I met Amber. We are first time buyers and had no idea what we were in for!! She not only only did an excellent job of finding our dream house, she made sure we understood the whole process and walked us through closing of the deed. Our process was a headache but she stuck with us and answered all of our questions. If she didn't know the answer she would get on that phone. These were questions that wasn't even pertaining to her job! What honor to have worked with Amber!! She is still helping us! Without her help we would have walked away from buying! This was our third time trying and we are officially home owners! If you are looking for a company to help you and an awesome agent stop your search and go with Amber Anderson Simply Vegas Real Estate! Amber has become a true friend for life. Mahalo Amber for all your hard work!!!!!
