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.
From start to finish Kami was great would recommend to anyone. Kami was always available and he made this process easy. Thanks again

I had such an amazing experience with my Realtor Michael Copenhaven. He was very efficient throughout the purchasing process, I was informed and educated on the steps of purchasing my first home. He has helped my partner sell, buy and sell his son property. He is one in a million with his work ethic. He was quick to respond to all my calls and text messages. He is officially a friend of my family now! I would recommend him to anyone purchasing a home in the future.

Leigha Hernandez Tropp is amazing. She has helped me with every rental for years now and now has helped me purchase my first home. She’s knowledgeable and at best is there ready to answer any question, send you new homes newly on the market and is there whenever you need and ready to take you to view any home you request. She really simplifies and makes the whole process a lot easier and I wouldn’t go to anyone else. Happy to have had her assistance and great to work with! I recommend her to anyone looking for a home to rent or purchase, she’s never let me down!

It was such an awesome experience working with Erica Becker. I was looking to purchase a second home in Las Vegas for our retirement. Erica not only helped me find a home, but she also helped me sell the condo. I’m here in Hawaii and she was very diligent and took care of everything. Erica informed me every step of the way, for both purchasing and selling. She made it seem easy and NO stress at all. She keeps you informed daily until everything is done. When you ask her any questions throughout the process, she responds quickly no matter the day or time. You’ll never feel alone or confused with all the many processes involved to BUY or SELL a home. I also made a new friend and someone I can trust.
I will definitely contact Erica for other future purchases in Las Vegas as well as recommending her to my friends and family! So if you’re out of state and looking to buy in Las Vegas, this is who’ll you want helping you!

It was such a pleasure working with Michele to buy our first home. She was very diligent and took care of everything we needed. Michele is professional, knowledgeable and responsive. She is well spoken and not afraid to stick up for her client's. We really enjoyed working with her and are so grateful for all of her help. Even after closing on our home, she directed us in all the right places for many of our first home owner needs.

Excited Customer of second home
I can't say enough about the service that I received from all aspects of the Gafford group. From the first interaction I felt like a long time customer that was valued. My real estate agent, Michael Copenhaver, is top notch. This is the 8th home I've purchased in several different states and cities, and Michael is by far the best I've worked with. From little things like picking me up from the airport, to being available anytime I had a question and responding nearly immediately. Again this was the best experience I've ever had in real estate.

We were looking at houses online, and Kami contacted us to ask if we wanted to go see some of the homes. We met him at the office and toured 4 beautiful places. He was nice and very helpful, not at all pushy. We called him to go back and look again at one awesome home . He arranged for us to go look again and we made an offer that day. Joey was very helpful getting our loan set up, getting all the paperwork and transfers done. We highly recommend them if you are looking for a house!!

VP of Sales
Kelsey was such a great person to work with during the entire process! She is knowledgeable and priced my home well and sold it in about a month. She was there to answer all of my questions, explain the current market conditions and suggest sales strategies. She was also a huge help negotiating the amount of repairs that I would do.

Kelsey was quick to provide me with information to finalize the inspections and closing paperwork as I was on a tight timeline.

I have bought and sold a few homes in the local area and beyond and look forward to working with Kelsey again on my next property!

This was by far one of the most professional experiences I’ve had in quite some time. I am telling everyone that I know about my experience.

Austin Starr at Simply Vegas was an amazing real estate agent. I gave him my goals and expectations which were by no means easy. Austin not only found exactly what I was looking for but met all my expectations and then some. I will definitely be recommending Austin Starr to all who are interested in purchasing a home. Thank you!

Kami Rahbaran was the best Real Estate agent I've ever had the pleasure of working with. I moved from Georgia to Las Vegas' in a short period of time. Kami coached me through every step of the purchasing process and worked collaboratively with my Georgia realtor to ensure closing was timely. He recommended Clear Title who also supported me during the process of home buying in Nevada. I would recommend Kami to everyone I know. He is forthright, focused, and calm in the face of chaos. <y daughter will be moving to Las Vegas from CHicago and Kami will be her Realtor as well. The welcome gift box was thoughtful and needed. Kami thought of everything!

Sr. Customer Service Manager
My experience with The Gafford Group at Simply Vegas and with Michael Copenhaver was outstanding. I received the best service I ever had. No matter what time, what day, and what my question was, I could always reach out to Michael and Nick Paggi, and they would make time for me. If they were busy, they would call me back shortly. When I couldn't make a walk-through, Michael took care of it for me. His vast knowledge about houses and the market made the process of buying a house less stressful. I even received gifts! On my first face to face with Michael, he gave me a welcome gift with cheese, crackers, wine, etc. As time progressed, I received a packing package with the works. I also received a stress relieving gift box and a goody box. The personal attention I received, made me feel special, they know how stressful buying a house can be, but the team made it very manageable for me, which I truly appreciate. If you are in the market for a house, The Gafford Group at Simply Las Vegas is a must! They'll keep you on track and on time with all appointments and documents. Before you know it, you'll be a homeowner, just like me. Thank you everyone.

I just want to say that Amanda Karczses is a phenomenal realtor and overall a classy lady. She went above and beyond for my husband and I, and when we felt like giving up she stayed positive and encouraged us to explore all options available to us. She didn't give up when the lender backed out on us. She stayed patient and referred us to a lender which we secured a loan and closed escrow so fast - that my head was spinning. I most definitely will recommend her to my friends & family.

I had Kami as my Real Estate agent and I can def say that if you want to make things happen and make a deal, hes your guy. Def motivated to make a deal happen. Everything was handled efficiently and quickly. Kami was very thorough in notifying me of what to expect etc... dont forget to shop around for mortgage brokers especially in crazy times like now. There is numerous mortgage companies that have deals and lowered their closing costs. Anyhow, I can definitely recommend Kami to handle your real estate needs as he has great tenacity and drive. Thank you all for getting me in my new home.

Mike did an amazing job helping me purchase my first home! He was patient and relaxed while looking at different homes, such that I never felt stressed/pressured. Once I found the right home, and was under contract, Mike was communicative and responsive, such that I was able to close on this home in under a month with basically no drama. I really appreciate his guidance and expertise navigating this foreign world of real estate.

Austin is family, which is why we trusted him from the beginning with the search for our forever home. Throughout the process, Austin was thorough in his search and kept our must-have items and wish list in mind when sending us potential homes. When we found the perfect home, Austin was by our side every step of the way to ensure a smooth and clear home-buying process. He attended every walk-through with us, with his insider point-of-view on things to look for. He was transparent and communicative during the entire process, keeping us informed every step of the way. He always had our family's best interest in mind, and we are thankful for his expertise and professionalism. We love Austin, and highly recommend him to anyone looking for an agent!

We recently purchased a home in the Sundstone Trilogy community in the northwest corner of Las Vegas. We loved working with Michael Copenhaver representing Simply Vegas. He was knowledgable, friendly and engaged in our process. My wife Tonya is a realtor in our home town of State College PA and she was impressed with his professionalism and personal touch to our buying experience. We were purchasing, our Vegas property as a second home and Mike toured us through various localities all around Vegas through severel trips and even virtual walkthroughs, what a great buying experience. We strongly recommend Mike and the Simply Vegas team including their specialized concierge service as the Realtor of choice in the Vegas area.

My husband and I recently moved to Nevada from Illinois. For the past 2 years, Michelle Rodriguez had been communicating with me via email. I really felt she went above and beyond so we felt that it would only be right for her to have our business. She was always available to us no matter what time of day ! She really worked hard for us especially at the end when we had a “ little bump in the road” ! We were blessed to find our final home and Michelle was there for us until that final moment we walked into our home ! We thank Michelle and the Stafford Group !!

My wife and I recently purchased a home in North Las Vegas. Amanda Karszes of Simply Vegas was our realtor. Amanda was patient and professional as she showed us several homes in Southern Nevada. Amanda's knowledge of the current market was priceless as she inspired us to make the best choice for our housing needs. We'd recommend Amanda and the Simply Vegas team to anyone who is interested in purchasing a home in Southern Nevada. Great job!!

Although we weren't sure what to expect and we were full of questions, my husband and I were determined to buy our first home this year. It is important, especially at this time during a seller's market, to have a great realtor. Having Kelsey P as our realtor made this process easy, fun, and exciting, as it should be when you buying your first home. Kelsey is absolutely amazing; she is so organized and a great communicator. We never felt alone during this process and we always felt like Kelsey was fighting for us to help find our dream home. We highly recommend Kelsey and the Gafford Group!

Michele , what is there to say but she is the best person you have on your team, she went far beyond in helping my wife and I in finding our dream home to start our retirement life. Michele is very knowledgeable in what she does for your team, she was very patience with us , I would recommend her to anyone coming to the Vegas area Vince and Mina Fletcher

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!
