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.
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.

Strategic HR Business Partner - Global Operations
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.

President and General Counsel
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.

Regional Service Manager
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!!!!!

100% recommended! My realtor Amie was amazing, going above and beyond seemed to be her way. We’re first time buyers and were not at all prepared for the buying process but with Amie’s help and expertise it was a great experience. We found a friend/realtor for life!

Great experience working with Amie Anderson. She made everything very easy. Very professional and would recommend her

Director of acquisitions
The agent who represented me was Ore Inbar. I work with many agents and he is by far the most pleasant and easy to work with. His communication skills are extraordinary and he is with you throughout the whole transaction process. There hasn't been one time that I needed him and he wasn't there. Keeps himself very available so anytime I had to reach him I never had to worry where he was or what he was doing because he very rarely misses a phone call. And when he does you hear back from him within minutes! Very pleasurable to work with and very much so looking forward to continuing many future business endeavors with him and the Simply Vegas franchise! You guys have a rockstar on your hands!

Where do I begin, Amanda since day one won me over not just because I was looking for house but her tone of voice and her phone etiquette is excellent, I loved working with Amanda she understood what we were looking for my family and she delivered today were finally able to get a house the both my husband and my two daughters can call a home.

I worked with Amber Anderson on my Henderson home purchase. She was everything I could expect from the real estate agent.
First she supported me in my desire to buy a property in Las Vegas.
Then she helped me to find a house that I liked. It was not very easy.
After we found a house she recommended the bargaining strategy and after we got our offer accepted she followed all the way till key transforming from the old owner.
She was always available to answer my questions and helped me to find answers that were not her responsibilities (like communicating with mortgage lender, title company etc.)
I am sure real estate agent cannot do more then Amber did with me.
I will use her help when I will be buying my next home and recommend her to everyone.

Kelsey Pyun did an excellent job from the beginning to the end of the project. She knew the right people to get my home remodeled in a timely manner and it looks great. I was given and accepted an offer higher than asking price and closing went smoothly. I would highly recommend Kelsey for any real estate transactions in the Las Vegas area.

Sold Our House in North Las Vegas, NV
Gafford Group at Simply Vegas was impressive from the introduction all the way to the closing .... one things we appreciated the way they give back, you are to choose a non-profit and they hang it from the "For Sale Sign" they put in your yard with no picture of realtor. Its classy with a "We Are One" type-like group persona. Our realtor is Julien Racine and he was persistent and attentive without being pushy or annoying (lol). He was honest and on point with getting back to us, he ALWAYS responded and followed through with calling back right away - same day. He is very organized and informative and if he didn't know he found out the answer and contacted your RIGHT BACK. The photographer personality was uplifting and awesome - like happy happy joy joy! She took great pictures of our house too. This company is 5-star for sure and I highly recommend this company. Thanks again to the Gafford Group at Simply Vegas

When I tell you that Kami Rahbaran is amazing. I mean it. He didn’t only help us buy our first home but he also ended up helping us buy our 2nd home all within 7 months here in Las Vegas. From beginning to end he has helped us, been patient (knowing we have 3 children and my other half has such a demanding job). We are thankful and so grateful to have been able to work with someone like Kami. Really listening to our needs and what we were looking for in a home. If you need anyone to help you, ask for Kami.
