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.

I came across simply Vegas by accident doing basic research, on homes in the Las Vegas area. Mike had given me a call within minutes of filling out their online form. I’ll be honest I usually ignore these types of calls and let me tell you I’m glad I didn’t. Mike went above and beyond to educate my wife and I on purchasing a home, he took more time out of his day to take my picky self around town during all times of the day until We found our home. Mike has become a friend of my wife and I due to his outstanding performance and just being an all around cool guy. I have already recommended him to friends and family and will Continue to do so. 10 out of 10 Mike

As a first time homebuyer, we didn't know where to start. Luckily, someone had recommended Michele Rodriguez to us. She educated us about buying a home, very professional and knowledgable. As time progress, Michele was always there for us and exceeded her services to us. Helped us from the beginning till the end. We are grateful to have met and worked with her. Thank you Michele.

We are so impressed with Michele Rodriguez from The Gafford Group at Simply Vegas! She really understood what we wanted in our next home. As out-of-state buyers, Michele's knowledge of the greater Las Vegas housing market and the home buying process were invaluable. We will definitely ask Michele to represent us with any future Las Vegas home sales or purchases!

There are no words to describe how absolutely lucky I was to meet Sonja. She was able to help me find my forever dream home. Before even meeting me set up 12 homes in the first weekend for me to view. She’s was there for me 24/7 if I had a question or just needed my hand held through the buying process always with a huge smile. She made me feel like she wasn’t just my Realtor but my family. Thank you isn’t even close to the gratitude I have for this incredible lady. Thank you for everything I am truly blessed to have met you. I will be referring ever person I know who wants to buy a house.

I don't even know where to start.. This review took time because I wanted to capture the right words to say. I'll start by saying that SONJA CATLIN is heaven sent. Some role people fall in, and some are made for it. There aren't enough great things I can say about her. I am a true believer of speaking things into existence. One day my husband brought home a brochure of this wonderful home we knew we couldn't afford, but I put it on the wall anyway. I found myself giving up on looking for a home and I looked up and saw simply Vegas, and thought to myself I'm sure they have a website... I searched the site and saw how easy it was to visit a home for sale, We got a call from Sonja to show us a house and when she stepped out of the car with the most amazing smile and said " I'm a hugger" I thought to myself... I like her already! My husband said you just met her LOL! My kids loved her the first time they met her, and she stuck by me day in an day out. I met her in October and we moved in December...She listened when I cried, she laughed when I needed it, she woke up late nights when I needed to vent. Not only did she do her job correctly, she never pushed. if at any point we didn't think things would be done on time... they were done on time. She always kept us two steps ahead of the game and for that we will forever be grateful. Not too mention all of this being completed through the holiday season, when she gave us our keys on Christmas Eve, that was the best present life could have given our family. I truly believe that EVERYTHING happens for a reason. There is 6 in our family, we moved on the 25th...and our address is 625! What could be better than that! Thank you for having Sonja on your team, she is the epitome of what a Realtor is!!!!

Eugenia Cho and Jacqueline Levy really went above the rim with my most recent home sale. There had been (to say the least) mistakes made in my effort to sell my home before I turned the listing over to them. The house was empty for quite some time so I was unaware of the issues in a potential sale, making my attempt to sell with a discount broker futile.
When they took over the listing they gave my magnificent house the attention it deserved. Being out of state it was impossible for me to manage the repair and upkeep required to sell a 1mm+ property. Eugenia and Jackie had a team that got all the work done in a timely manner at a great price with very little required of me. My house had many features and thus there were quite a few unforeseen issues that popped up, they worked through all of them and made sure I was aware of what was going on and what still needed to be done.
I had the even more complicated issue of needing my house to close before the end of the year for tax reasons. They kept me updated with what was required to make that happen.
Professional, knowledgeable, honest, concerned, and thorough are all adjectives I would use to describe their work. They also responded to calls, texts, or emails almost immediately no matter what the hour or how trivial my question.
If you have or are looking for a higher end home in the Anthem area, especially the Anthem Country Club, I seriously doubt you can find a better agent to represent you.

I want to thank the gafford group at simply Vegas, but most of all Damian Van Loon! Damien made my first home buying experience the best! Very easy to communicate with and will guide you from the very start until the end. He Literally made everything so easy! Never once tried to push me into buying anything I didn’t feel comfortable with. This guy will always be on your side and fight with you to get your dream home. I will definitely be working with him again on my next home and will recommend him to anyone I know. Thank you Damien!

VERY Happy Homeowners!
We found Jacqueline Levy & Eugenia Cho by accident while we were surfing the internet casually looking for a new home in our target area over a year ago. We couldn't have asked for better partners in our search. They showed us countless homes and were patient and persistent during the process. We found our dream home and the sale was a breeze. They also listed our current home and we got 5 offers in one weekend and ending up selling it for over asking price! They are smart, knowledgeable, and genuinely nice people. They've become good friends over the last several months. The Gafford Group is so lucky to have them on their team. We couldn't be happier with our experience.

We highly recommend Matt Shiel. It took us over a year to find the right home. He was patient and helpful through the whole process. He went above and beyond, the best!!!

VERY Happy Homeowners
We found Eugenia Cho and Jacqueline Levy of The Gafford Group by accident while we were surfing the internet over a year ago as we were casually looking for another home. They were so patient as we looked and looked for just the right home in our target area. Countless showings - all with a smile. They are professional, smart and we couldn't have asked for better partners in our journey. We found our new home and that sale was a breeze. They also handled the sale of our existing home and walked us through every step and answered all of our questions, no matter the time of day. We had a quick sale with multiple offers in just one weekend. They've become good friends and we are so thankful for all they have done for us! The Gafford Group is so fortunate to have them on their team.

I meet Sonja Catlin, a Realtor with The Gafford Group at Simply Vegas while working on a house and I am so glad I did. I had been looking for a home for several months. I did not have an actual Realtor because I could not seem to find one that could or would consistently help me find a home. Sonja was the first to really listen to me. Find out exactly what kind of house I was looking for and where, and anytime a home came on the market that matched my criteria, she made sure I knew about it immediately. I had to search Zillow and then ask previous Realtors I'd had if they could show me a home and then hope they could find the time. Sonja always made the time. Sonja is a top-notch agent who is honest, reliable and very professional. I would recommend her to everyone.

The Gafford Group is really lucky to have an agent like Ara Sanders working for them. We recently bought our 2nd home although this was our first time using The Gafford Group/Ara Sanders. We were blown away by Ara's ability to get things done efficiently, effectively and then also going above and beyond. Her level of professionalism was superb. We're eternally grateful and we'll be using Ara Sanders as our agent again in the future. Thank-you so much Ara!

Michele Rodriguez went above and beyond her role as realtor. She was extremely efficient, she got back to me always in a timely matter and she went out of her way to help me in whatever capacity I needed.
The sale of my house was so smooth and so fast and it was all because of Michele. I owe her so very much and I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to work with her. Any person would be more than lucky to have her as their realtor.

We can never thank Ashley enough for all of her hard work she put in to help us land lot 72 at Regatta Heights. This was a challenging process and Ashley made it happen. Ashley was a true pro and we would recommend her to anyone that is looking for a new home in the Las Vegas/Henderson area. From the simplest deals to the most challenging, Ashley can handle them all.

We received David’s name as a recommendation from a friend and we are so happy that we did. He walked us step by step through the whole process and made what can be a confusing undertaking so much easier. He always promptly returned calls and immediately handled any unforeseen issue that inevitably come up.

My husband and I enjoyed working with Michele Rodriguez on finding and buying our first home. We communicate with Michele Rodriguez from California by explaining to her what we was looking for and our needs of what we wanted in our first home. Michele Rodriguez is very patience, considerate, understanding, hardworking for her clients and very professional. Her professionalism showed throughout the whole process and attention to detail, her dedication to exploring and explaining our options and well explained to us on how the process of buying a home works. Michele Rodriguez is a awesome Real Estate agent if you are looking for a home she will make sure you find what you want.

Our realtor was David Jones. We were very happy with his service, especially since we were going through this process out of state. David always answered our e-mails, calls, and texts. He even responded on Holidays to help get our deal done. Not only did he deliver the house we were looking for, but we were able to close early. We highly recommend him for anyone moving to the Las Vegas area.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Ara Sanders for our first home buying process. From our initial phone conversation, to our first in-person meeting, and all throughout the two month journey Ara has been a joy to work with. Her professionalism, attention to detail, and dedication to exploring and explaining our never ending options went above and beyond expectation. Ara worked to make sure we understood every step of the home buying process, she made sure we were 100% confident before signing any document along the way, and responded to every call/email/text within an hours time. Above all, she was patient. I had thousands of questions (some of which I asked 10 times over) and she explained answers with the same enthusiasm each time. I highly recommend Simply Vegas, but I more so recommend Ara Sanders as your real estate agent.

The Gafford Group has made our first time home buying easy and care free. Michele was also VERY patience with the million and one questions i had throughout the entire process.

Matt was my realtor and he did a great job selling my home. He sold my home within the first week. He was knowledgeable and professional and always kept in touch with me, being a canadian and selling my vacation home in the US was a little stressful as I was not sure what to expect. I had many questions and he helped me understand the process I needed to go through to sell my home with ease and less stress. Thanks Matt.
