My family and I would just like to thank you for doing such a great job helping us find the ideal house. Although you had to do triple the paper work between our financial advisor, lawyer, and us; we thank for hanging in there with us. Thanks for putting the icing on the cake of our vision.

We appreciated your diligence, resourcefulness, and devotion. Thank you!
David Huynh & Yen Nguyen
Larry worked hard to earn our business all the way through the home buying process. He was always prompt, he was always easy to get in touch with, and he was there to support us through the entire buying process and beyond. If you want an agent who works hard to always keep a step ahead of the game, Larry is the Realtor for you. We are really enjoying our new home.
Thank you, Larry!
I would just like to take the time to thank you for doing such an incredible job selling our house.
Your hard work and dedication was much appreciated.
You were on top of things every step of the way.
I especially liked the ideas and your attention to details you had in presenting our home for sale.
We are writing to you to thank you for your exceptional service in selling our home.

Daren & Maritza Camilo
The Kumar family is fortunate that we chose you as our Realtor to buy ourselves the house we are so glad to own now.The whole experience into the cumbersome process went smoothly and with the least amount of inconvenience to us. This as we noticed along has been your hard work, professionalism and outstanding brokerage skills that led to a smooth purchase. We thank you for the extra work that you did for us and strongly recommend to other buyers as a choice for Realtor.
Himant & Sanjana Kumar
Our experience working with you could not have been better!! From the day we spoke on the phone, and your personal approach to know me and the family before any real estate information was impressive. Although you explained all of the benefits of working with you first, we were sold before you walked through the door!! We were so excited to explain the talking house to our friends and neighbors! We thank you for explaining how to "stage" our home for the Open House. We think doing so is what got us an offer the very first day the we listed and showed it!! Through viewing other homes, asking questions of sellers, understanding the structure of homes, and giving us important information about different neighborhoods in the area, our sell and purchase of a new home could not have been a greater experience!! Larry, you have gained friends and clients for life!!
We thank you!!
Kimberly Pendergrass & Andrew Bates
Grace and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such professionalism you've shown in both selling and helping us find our dream home. You've provided us with FULL SERVICE from top to bottom whereas other realtors/agents would not do...i.e. the walk-through of our new home, excellent communication throughout, proposal letter of offer about our family,...and many more small details that may not be noticeable to you but it is important to us. Your complete dedication, honesty, and hard work is seen through out, such as showing us numerous homes, aggressive advertisement of our home, and prompt response to any questions we may have instantly. We are completely satisfied and very very happy that we sold our home over asking price and bought our dream home below asking price!
Grace, Victoria, Sarah, and I just want to thank you again for all of your help.
Bobby Lau & Grace Aquitania-Lau
This has been a long time coming. Sorry for the delay. I want to thank you for all your attention during the purchase of my home. You are a master of the laws concerning real estate. Your advice and knowledge helped me immensely in making the correct decisions on my home purchase. Thank you for your time in looking for a home, and tolerating my children coming along with us. It was important that they like the home as well as myself. You met our needs and I would not hesitate to highly recommend your services.
I just wanted to send you an email and thank you for all the help you provided us in the home buying process. You helped us buy our house at a very nice price and also helped us receive some credit from the seller for some home repairs. Overall you made our home buying experience very enjoyable.Thanks once again and I will refer friends of mine who plan to buy homes in the future to you.
Shivaprasad Meramajal & Sunaina Rai
I just wanted to thank you for the time and effort you dedicated to help me buy my first real estate. I was particularly thankful for the time you spent to explain every step, since this is my first real estate purchase. I am so grateful to have such a knowledgeable real estate broker, especially one who has a reputable list of referrals of people who can provide me with additional help both during and after the purchase. I know that I could always count on you for advice for when I have any questions. I am also confident that you would also provide the same level of service to anybody I would refer. I am glad for pleasant experience. You made me feel as though we had been friends the whole time, rather than simply establishing a typical broker-buyer relationship. I look forward to buying my next real estate with you.
Elmer G. Gamoning
George and I would like to thank you for your excellent and prompt service in the sale of the condo. We told you what we wanted out of the condo and you put it on the multiple listings at the highest price which, to our amazement, sold at the highest price. You kept us advised of everything that we needed to do on our end and emailed reports to us within a few days of inspections. Thank you also for your hospitality with helping us with the tenants that occupied the condo at the time of the offer. We definitely would use your services again if or when the occasion arises.
Darlene Wagoner and George Nichols
We just wanted to say thank you, for helping Ramiro and I find the home we were wanting. It took you no time to get to know us and know what we were looking for in a home. Thanks to your expertise and knowledge you have made the whole experience a pleasant one. For this we are very grateful and so satisfied. We would most definitely recommend you to our friends and family, once again thank you!
Ramiro & Grace Castro
Larry Gallegos provided excellent service. He willingly shared information about market conditions and property values without contract or commitment pressure. His website tools are great (LarryBroker.com). When I finally decided to sell, he guided me through the process. He provided information for me to decide what action to take at various junctures. The outcome was unbelievable. The final sales price was $30K over the initial listing price and $55K over my low end expectations - this was a fixer-upper needing a lot of fixing. The house was on the market for three days and closed in one month. The buyer was happy and so was I!
Paul C. Minsky
We would like to thank you for the excellent service you provided on the sale of our house. Your professionalism and efficiency were evident from the beginning. I called you around 9:30 PM the very first time and ten minutes later you were calling me back! Your marketing program worked so well, that it brought us nine offers -- all above the asking price. You guided us every step of the way that we never had to worry about anything. We will have no problem in referring you to our family and friends.
Thanks a lot,
Patricia and Benjamin Flores
Selling and moving to a new location is always stressful, let alone being a very important business transaction that needs an informed, experienced, and ethical realtor to manage it. Having a trusted and reliable Realtor is a MUST in buying/selling property. Larry was always ahead in explaining what the plan was and what the expected outcomes were. He was prompt in sharing new news and was ALWAYS prompt in responding to phone and e-mail requests.
Thanks for your excellent service in selling our home. We were both pleased with your professional and honest service. My family and I would like to thank you for doing such a great job to sell our house.
Haider & Mahboob Etemadi
My family and I would like to thank you for all your time, efforts, and support in helping us getting into our first
home. With your professional help we were able to close on time and were able move into our home on time. You always returned our calls and always had all the paperwork ready to go.
I just wanted to thank you for all your help getting the market analysis for my home in order. You spent a lot of time getting all the documents together to get me a true market value for my home.
Thank you again for all your efforts.
Many Thanks From the Jones/Handwerks
What fun we've had with you over the past couple of months selling my mom's house in San Leandro.
Early in our conversation you pledged that you would do your best to guide us through the process of finding the right buyer at the right price and you didn't let us down!
We are very, very satisfied with all aspects of the transaction, and if we are ever in a position to refer another seller (or buyer) in the Bay Area to a top realtor like you, we will be glad to do so.
Thanks so much for your attention to all our needs and to being particularly sensitive to my mom and the fact that she was selling the house she had lived in over 56 years.
Your responsiveness and mindful follow-up were terrific and we are delighted with the outcome.
All the best to you in the years ahead.
Pam (Jones) Handwerk and Agnes Jones
We would like to Thank Larry for our new home! It has been a long time, 21 years, since we had looked for a new home. Larry made the process so nice. My husband and myself never felt anxious. Larry always was there to answer questions and always made us feel as though we were his only clients. We are now excited owners of a beautiful home!
Thank you again Larry!
Tony and Tammy Lobato
Thanks for the excellent job in selling my condo.
From day one I knew I was getting great service, your hard work led to great success.
You were always very prompt in any and all questions I had.
My place had offers the first weekend on the market for above what I expected to receive.
On top of that, I left the State on vacation the week offers were to be accepted.
You worked closely with me, over the phone and by fax, to go through the offers.
That wasn't the end, after the offer was accepted and I moved to Santa Barbara, you went the extra mile to help with the HOA issues, cleaning my place after the movers left it a mess, arranging for the stuff in the storage locker to be moved, helping with arranging for the Section 1 to be fixed on time, I could go on and on.
Also after all was supposed to be said and done you helped me again by driving 30 miles out of your way to meet with my HOA guy to iron out some post sale issues.
Even though this was our first time working together, you treated me like I was a long time client.
I would and will refer you to anyone looking for a realtor in the Bay Area.
Since we are second time homebuyers, we have a point of reference to what separates a great broker from a mediocre realtor/broker. Larry is really a top-notch broker. Larry has impeccable integrity and ethics. He is very professional, reliable, knowledgeable, thorough and attentive. He responds to all phone calls and e-mails
We are very fortunate to have met Larry. He helped us to sell and buy our new home with great finesse. We benefited greatly from his great negotiation skills. The transaction on both sides went so smoothly. He lessened the stress out of the process of buying and selling by coaching us through the process. The mortgage broker and the escrow agent Larry referred to us were also high quality. This created great team work, which translated to a smooth transaction.
He is always on the ball and steps ahead of the game. We are very happy with his service. We feel very comfortable to recommend him to our friends.
Two Thumbs Up for Larry Gallegos!
Nalyne and Stéphane Lunati
Larry F. Gallegos, miracle Realtor, did something no other Realtor did.
He not only sold our property, which was very challenging, but also got us a higher price. He really put in a lot of time and effort and it shows when he gets you results.
He follows every aspect of the sale and is very sensitive to your needs.
The one thing that impressed us a lot was the fact that he always follows through with every offer and never gives up.
He has a lot of realty knowledge, experience and Patience.
He is truly the best.
Cynthia & Richard DosRemedios
We never met a "Real Estate Professional" that was as professional as you.
Not only did you sell our Sundale home in a record amount of time, two weeks for more than our asking price, but you worked tirelessly to do it.
We often saw you, or talked to you early in the morning or late at night.
You always returned our phone calls quickly and answered all of our questions honestly.
Larry, you should start your own real estate training school to share your vast knowledge with others.
The world needs more "Real Estate Professionals".
God bless you and thank you again.
PS Thank you for helping our daughter find a job!
Chuck & Linda Evans
When we decided to sell our house we weren't sure if we should go with an agent.
We had met Larry about a year before and when we decided to go with an agent there was no question we'd use Larry.
When we first met him he was totally professional and knew the area very well, which was a plus.
Our timing couldn't have been better.
The market was just about to change towards a buyer’s market.
Larry suggested we list it right away and we didn't feel pressured what so ever.
We had a comfort level that he really knew what was going on with the market, and he proved to be right in every suggestion he made.
The house was sold in less than 30 days, when other homes that had been in the market before ours were not so lucky and had still not been able to sell.
We were very satisfied with his professionalism and marketing strategy.
Larry knows his stuff.
We will definitely use him for our next purchase.
Brandon Lewis and Marcelle Davis
We would like to thank you for the exceptional service you provided our Aunt Madge Cameron, in the sale of her house.
Since she had already moved out of the area before the sale, it made a bigger challenge.
But, with your knowledge, patience and professionalism you made her overwhelming undertaking much easier and very satisfactory.
You are truly a very honest and professional Realtor and we would highly recommend your services.
Bob & Evelyn March
Mr. Larry Gallegos is by far the most honest and hard working broker that I have encountered.
He is very upfront with the pricing of the properties and is tireless in getting the sale of the properties listed by him.
He also works endless hours with other agents in the area keep the visitational flow moving in the correct direction.
If I ever need another property listed in the Alameda County area or to recommend an agent, Mr. Larry Gallegos will be the first call made.
A wholehearted "Thank You, Mr.Gallegos and a job well-done."
John Crouch, 1stSgt USMC (ret.)
Subject: Thank You
Thank you for everything. I know there were times I was difficult to deal with but your patience and attention to detail definitely made the whole transaction go relatively smoothly. Again, thank you!!
Wanted to send you a quick testimonial :-) Thank you for everything!
"We were very lucky to find Larry Gallegos.
His professionalism, sincerity, and attention to detail took out the anxiety from what many people would argue is one of the most stressful purchase decisions you can make.
We knew Larry had everything covered!
From roofing inspections to loan contingencies--he provided us with solid, step by step advice throughout and championed our case and represented our interests to the sellers.
He was also extremely patient in answering our questions and working around our schedules.
Best of all--our 6 year old son loved all the attention and pampering he got from Larry!
We will tell all our friends to use him!"
Sudhir & Charmaine Jha-Hussain
My name is Andrew Martinez,
Larry Gallegos helped me find the home I was looking for, we went out day after day looking for the home that was right for me, we saw dozens of homes!!
Larry didn't mind at all he was very helpful and he truly seemed to enjoy looking for a home for me. He was very good at pointing little details out and never left me not understanding anything he always made everything so clear.
He worked day and night to make sure things went smoothly for me and my home.
I am proud to say he is more than my real estate agent, he is my friend and my cousin and I can’t thank him enough.
Thanks again Larry.
Larry is a 5 star Realtor.
No detail was overlooked and every situation was prepared for before it happened.
He did a great job selling my mom's house that we have had in the family for 30 years.
Not only was the experience smooth, but I really appreciated his patience with the very sensitive situation of selling a sentimental family home.
We were completely educated and made aware of every aspect of this transaction.
I will always refer him to others when I get the opportunity.
It is refreshing to work with somebody who has a passion for what they do and a desire to truly help people.
I was introduced to Larry through my daughter Shawna.
From the moment I met him, I felt very confident in choosing him to be my agent.
I had lived in my home for 31 years.
It had been the family home and so was filled with many wonderful life memories.
Larry was always very professional and honoring to me.
He always kept me informed about what was occurring and gave me great advice on how to prepare the house for market and for what to expect and plan for.
I believe he became more than an excellent agent; he became a friend to me and my family.
I am grateful for his kind and thoughtful service and recommend him whole heartedly to anyone searching to have someone who will put their heart into their service for them.
Jan Diana Fields
We can't commend you enough for your high standards of professionalism, positive determination, and tremendous expertise in representing our recent home sale.
We had great confidence in your judgment every step of the way, and your follow-through was impeccable.
You are a top-notch real estate agent in every regard.
Larry & Susan Putnam
I'd like to take this time to thank you for all of your help with my recent home purchase.
You truly are a professional as a real estate agent.
You were very informative of all aspects of my purchase endeavor.
I really appreciated how accessible you were along the way.
You always returned calls promptly and were available for home viewings with little notice.
We viewed several homes before my final decision and you were always accommodating of my busy work schedule.
I don't know how many other clients you were working with at the time, but you always gave me the impression that I was your most important client.
More than that, it was like having a personal friend guiding me through the entire process.
You have a very calm demeanor about you and I really appreciated that I never felt pressured to make any decisions.
I had never worked with a Realtor before, but I can't imagine this process having been any smoother than it was.
I think I was really fortunate to have chanced upon you as my agent.
I will definitely refer friends and family to you in the future Larry.
Thanks a million.
Martin J Garcia, M.D.
We I would like to express our gratitude to you for helping us purchase our first investment property in Livermore.
We are very pleased with our purchase.
We certainly appreciated all of your hard work and dedication in helping us.
You always kept us informed as to what was on the market and took the time to answer all of our questions.
In addition, we appreciated your support when we were closing Escrow.
Your knowledge, support and promptness throughout the entire process was invaluable to us.
From start to finish, the entire process was seamless!.
Patrick & Diana Kawasaki-Yee
We cannot thank you enough for getting us the house we wanted.
We did not realize buying a house involves so much and can be so "tricky" sometimes.
You've led us through the whole process step by step with extraordinary patience and professionalism.
With your knowledge and expertise, you not just got us the house, but cheaper than we wanted to bid.
The other thing that amazed us is that you are never late for any of our appointments, not just on time, but always early to check out things for us.
Your service is flawless!! You rock !!
Thank you from bottom of our hearts !!
Matt & Lian Chinn
“How to sell your Mom’s house”
When the time comes and it is right, ask Mom.
Her comment is whenever the house needed to be sold, call Larry Gallegos.
Mom said, “He knows the neighborhood, he is professional, he will work with me in my best interest.”
From Mom’s suggestions, we called Larry Gallegos.
Larry was professional; he spoke with Mom about selling the house, working with her daughter and husband in her best interest.
Larry went beyond being a realtor, I believe, in respect by having Mom’s best interest in the sale.
He came to Mom’s new residence for signing of papers, and having the notary to come for final signing.
He was patient with me during the transition of preparing the house to for the market.
Larry has been easily accessible between emails, phone and faxes.
He worked with my husband and me in preparation, for the house to be available for the market.
Prior to the final sale, we were able to take Mom back to see the house.
She was very pleased with the final sale of the house,
and hoped that the house will bring good memories for the new owners.
Mom said, “Larry did a great job.”
My husband and I would recommend Larry Gallegos for a realtor to anyone buying or selling a home.
Thank you very much
B. Nannery and the Isenhart’s
I worked with Larry for several years before putting my house on the market.
He was very helpful and generous with his time even when he knew I would not be listing my house due to market conditions.
Larry advised me very accurately regarding the best time to list it and how to best prepare the property for sale.
He also advised me well regarding proper pricing.
The house actually sold in less than a week for a few thousand more than the asking price.
He handled all of the details in a very professional manner and promptly kept me informed at all times.
Larry is unbelievably honest and professional to a fault.
I highly recommend him.
Larry is definitely someone you can trust who will do a fantastic job for you.
My son and daughter-in-law introduced me to Larry because they had been so pleased with him in the purchase of their first home a couple of years ago.
I encountered a lot of problems with this purchase because
a) I was purchasing a condo and the lender needed to approve the condo complex as well as the individual unit
b) the last home I bought was almost 30 years ago and rules have greatly changed
c) the condo I purchased is in Fremont but I was living in Virginia
and d) I used a lender located in Virginia who was unfamiliar with California regulations.
Larry was great in helping me get through it all – couldn't have done it without him!
Larry was the most professional real estate agent we have worked with.
His knowledge of the market is excellent.
He provided excellent market analysis and honest opinion to assist us in setting the right expectation and price.
Because of his marketing strategy, we received multiple offers over our asking price in just two days.
Larry is easy to communicate with, he returns email and calls promptly.
I appreciate the relationship my wife and I have with you and your company.
Thank you for everything Larry,
Sam & Jennie Lee
One word will not sum up the opportunity you’ve helped me and my wife achieved.
We were house hunting for years with no luck.
Being young and inexperienced with real property, we were close to giving up while you did not.
Your service was exceptional, professional, prompt and reliable.
We appreciate your patience and the fact that you asked questions we did not think of or thought irrelevant.
We appreciate the fact that though we are dealing with a seller who was in your office, you still honored your fiduciary duties as our agent and made sure we were comfortable with every aspect of the transaction.
We appreciate how you pushed and pulled resources within your organization for everything we requested and took the time to make sure we understand before taking the next step.
We are happy to have worked with you and feel like winners coming out of the transaction.
We look forward to working with you again in the future.
Stay sharp, Larry, the market needs a super-agent like you to help us all make these huge steps in life.
Paul Tuon & Artika Prasad
Larry helped sell my mom's house a few years ago.
He did such an amazing job, I knew I wanted to work with him when it was time to buy my own home.
As first time home buyers in a competitive market, Larry was readily available to answer all of our questions and advocate for us.
We ended up with the perfect home for our growing family.
Thank you Larry for all of your hard work to help us to make our dream a reality!
We hope to work with you again in the future!
Matt and Joanna McLellan
I'd like to take this opportunity to say thanks for everything you've done for me, my wife, and my family.
The time you took to explain all the details and give me an idea of what to expect was greatly appreciated.
You made my first time home buying experience easy and enjoyable by answering all my questions and being in constant communication with me.
I would definitely recommend you to family and friends and hope to use you again in the future.
You went above and beyond your duties by providing me with the house portfolio and finding a chimney inspector.
Thanks for helping me get my dream house!
If you are looking for a real estate agent that is professional, provides you with all of the information you need to make an educated decision on your purchase and is easy to work with, then you want to have Larry Gallegos as your agent.
He was so helpful in the purchase of my son's home.
His pleasant, non pressured style allowed us to make the right choice in our purchase.
He was accommodating with our limited availability.
Larry was a pleasure to work with and we would not hesitate to ask for his assistance in future purchases/sales.
Bob and Chris Christie
Larry was a great help and made our experience selling our home an extremely easy one, his Docusign program was very easy to use not having to waste time to meet up just for a signature.
We would recommend Larry to anyone wanting to sell their home fast and with ease.
James & Gina Gallegos
As first time home sellers, we were very grateful to have Larry guide us through the process.
He made it all seem so easy.
Any questions or concerns we had, he would reply to quickly and thoroughly.
With Larry being in Fremont and us in Oakley, the use of DocuSign made signing all the important documents a breeze.
We would recommend Larry to help anyone sell their home.
Gina & James Gallegos
Back in 2012 I began a search for my first house.
My family has worked with Larry before and he came highly recommended to me.
I contacted Larry to get information about the first steps I needed to take and he was extremely helpful and courteous towards me.
He made sure that I had all the facts and that I was comfortable with the process. After getting my preapproval Larry and I began to search for houses that were within my budget.
During this time in the real-estate market there were many buyers looking for the same type of house I was hoping to buy.
Every house was almost guaranteed to be a bidding war.
Even when I began to become frustrated and impatient with the home buying process Larry remained positive and never stopped helping me to find the perfect place.
Larry took the time to send me every listing for houses that satisfied my requirements as soon as they hit the market.
This enabled me to view the houses as soon as possible in the hopes of being one of the first buyers to submit a competitive offer.
Larry always made time to meet me at each house no matter the time, he always greeted me with a smile and a positive attitude that made viewing the house easy and relaxing.
After viewing many houses I finally found one I really loved and wanted to put in an offer that would guarantee acceptance.
Larry submitted my offer quickly and provided status updates along the way.
The offer was accepted and now began an entirely new process to close and take ownership of my house.
Larry was extremely informative and gave valuable advice on actions to take.
After escrow had closed I was able to receive the keys to my new house.
I have heard that sometimes real-estate agents may try to convince you to put an offer on a house just so that they can get a quick sale and collect their commission.
This was most certainly not the case with Larry.
He would offer insight on possible situations that the potential owner of a home may face and pointed out things in the houses that I would have never thought to look for.
Not once did Larry ever push or rush me to put an offer on any house.
He would simply offer insight and experience at every house viewing.
If you are looking to purchase a house and want to make the process as easy and stress free as possible then Larry Gallegos is your agent!
He will always go the extra mile for you to ensure that you are getting the house that YOU want.
He will never pressure you to make any decision and he will always be there to help and guide you along your house purchasing adventure.
I cannot recommend Larry enough, he has really shown me that purchasing a house can be easy and worry free. I will most certainly be coming back when it is time for my next house and cannot wait to work with Larry again.
Extremely Satisfied Client
Thanks for the selling my home in Probate so soon.
I didn't have access to the internet, Larry was kind enough to come by home many times to fill out the paperwork needed.
Thank you once again,
I cannot say thank you enough for helping me sell my house and get me into my new home in such a short amount of time.
I truly appreciate the time and complete dedication in helping me do everything that needed to be done prior to putting my house on the market.
The excellent communication during the entire process of selling and buying was priceless.
Your expertise shined through!
I'm still in awe over how quickly and smooth each transaction was.
I will definitely be referring friends and family to you in the future.
Thanks again for everything.
We just want to say thank you again for all your help in selling Brian's childhood home.
I have to laugh thinking back to the day you were walking the neighborhood handing out fliers.
I had literally just told Brian that the next real estate flyer we get is the realtor we are going to use.
Not having had the need for a realtor in almost 30 years, we weren't sure who to use and I had been stressing over it for a few months.
I'm a little cynical when it comes to stuff like this, especially in this seller's market.
I wanted to make sure that the person we were "handing" money to was worthy of receiving it.
Well, we couldn't have made a better choice.
From day one when I spoke to you when you handed me that flyer there was no pressure on us to use your services.
You emailed me very useful information to help us make informed decisions.
You answered all our questions.
You were always available.
You let us call the shots and you guided us when we needed it.
We can't thank you enough for making this experience a great one!
Thanks again for all your hard work,
Nanette & Brian Ahern
Thank you so much for your help with the purchase of my home.
I truly appreciated the extra effort you exhibited in making sure I made a good bid to get the acceptance, as well as working with the sellers to give me closing cost credits for the inspection items.
I was pleasantly surprised at how smooth the whole process was.
And I will look forward to working with you on my next home buying or selling transaction.
Larry acted as a buyer/seller agent in our transaction.
He was very responsive to every email and phone call.
He made himself available for every appointment and was with us in every step of the process.
He helped us get a house in this much desired Mission, Fremont neighborhood.
There is only so much we can write in a testimonial , so please feel free to contact us if you need more information.
Ganesh Prabhu, Sandhya Kapoor(Prabhu)
When we first signed up with Larry, we were a little overwhelmed at the prospect of getting our old house ready for sale.
Larry gave us some options and we decided to only give the house a fresh coat of paint and do some minor landscaping.
By not doing any upgrades we were concerned we might not get as much for the house.
However, Larry piqued the local interest by placing a "coming soon" sign in front of the house and notifying other realtors.
When we finally said we were ready for Larry to show the house, he received a great response and we had several offers in less than two weeks.
Larry's diligence and hard work not only sold our house quickly, but in having us place the house at a lower price than we initially wanted, got us more money for the house than we ever imagined.
Thank you Larry for all your hard work.
You kept us informed every step of the way and made the process of selling our home very easy.
Bryan and Karyne Paiva
Larry did an exceptional job in selling our house. It was an emotional experience to sell our home of 54 years but Larry was very patient and compassionate during the whole process.
He was very professional, very thorough, very efficient, and very organized. He explained things each step of the way and was always available whenever we or our daughter had any questions.
He has great communication skills. There was a lot of documentation, both in print and online, but he patiently guided us through it all.
Just prior to listing the house, Larry arranged for all the inspections so everything was ready once the house was listed.
He created a beautiful flyer and had some wonderful pictures taken of the house that were on MLS.
He held 2 open houses that were very successful due to the widespread marketing he did on the house.
Once it came down to reviewing offers, we were impressed with his negotiation skills. We had multiple offers on the house and ended up getting an offer well over asking price. We were very pleased.
We highly recommend Larry Gallegos if you are looking for a realtor to sell your house. His years of experience were definitely key in making this a very smooth transaction.
We appreciated all his hard work.
Even though we were a seller, we have no doubt that he would deliver that same quality service if you need a realtor to help you purchase a house.
Thank you Larry!

"Larry is a magician in the real-estate market .
I and Vasantha are absolutely grateful for the awesome service and we are 200% sure that if it not had been for Larry, we would still be renting a home.
Being a first-time home-buyer, we had questions on every corner and Larry was so patient with us.
Larry would not let us do, anything we don't want to.
Larry has been a natural when it comes to negotiations and handling client transactions without stressing the buyers and sellers.
Larry did a A-OK job when setting up inspections and managing dates and working with the loan-officer, making it a cool operation.
We are making a recommendation for Larry, without any reservations that he is the best out there in this market and we will continue to use his service for more real-estate transactions.

As owner of the condemned property in Fremont that you made famous by selling it for $230,000 over the asking price of one million, I applaud your integrity and thorough knowledge of the Mission Area Market.
For us, it was an efficiently, cash transaction that went smoothly and I am very pleased with my son Vince's choice in recommending you as the Best Broker in Fremont.
Thank you so much for all that you did for us, and the expediency and professional manner in which the transaction was handled.
I have already recommended you to a dear friend of 50 years, who was struggling to find a competent Broker here, while living in L.A.
I am confident that he will be as pleased as my son and I were with the knowledge and insight your experience will bring to his home sale too.
He thanked me profusely, and told me that he was so happy to have found you, because you were the first Broker he has spoken to that "Gets It", FINALLY!
It has truly been a pleasure, Larry.
" Thank you Larry for your help in the purchase of our first home in the bay area.
The market is very challenging to compete at this time and you helped us to the best of your ability to make our offer compelling to the owners.
The insights you shared about the neighborhood and the house plus getting all required details from the previous owners about the home really helped us in a smooth move.
We are really happy and we look forward to creating lots of memories in this new place"

Larry Gallegos was our selling realtor and we appreciated the whole process of good communication, good advice and a selling price we were happy with.
He knows the Fremont area quite well and suggested the best way to present our home to the market.
It sold quickly with multiple bidders, just the way we wanted to see the deal completed.
A high recommend from us.
Roger & Susan Boots
Thank you so much for your thorough guidance from listing through the selling of our home.
We felt confident knowing we could count on your expertise and knowledge in this ever-changing market.
Your dedication, open communication, and friendly disposition made this a very positive experience (especially during the holidays).
We appreciate the conscientious, professional manner in which you represented us from the beginning through the very end of the process.
Mike & Cathy Claiborne
Larry has sold two homes for us. He is very professional and knows the business well. He’s always prompt in answering our calls and emails. His marketing brought in lots of people even on pouring down rainy days. His negotiating skills brought us multiple offers, allowing our home to sell over asking price even in the “slow time” of year for real estate. If someone were to ask us if we could recommend a realtor, we would not hesitate to refer them to Larry.

Thanks for your excellent service in selling my in-laws home.
I was pleased your expert advice when it came to helping me choose inspection companies, recommending repair people and a cleaning crew. Because, you created a great listing, there was a wonderful turnout for the showing and open house, I received multiple offers and I was able to get a great final sales price.
When my wife and I first decided to retire and move out of the state, we took many things in to consideration. Of the most important was taking care of our elderly father who was living in a large house alone. Through our process and planning, we all concluded that we would sell both our homes and jump into the retirement world fully prepared to make another home purchase with an in-law quarter fit for a King.
The next hurdle was to decide on a Realtor. We had never sold a home before and our father had lived in his current home for over 50 years. We decided to place our trust in someone who had a great deal of experience and was proven to be an expert in our area. The choice for us was Larry Gallegos with Better Homes and Gardens.
Larry walked us through the process of decluttering, cleaning, inspecting, repairing and staging the home for a quick sale. In “ordinary times” this process was a proven winner. However, the day the our father’s house was to be listed on the market and prepared for open house viewings, COVID-19 regulations kicked in and only homes that were vacant could be toured. Not knowing what to expect (including Larry), we moved our father in with us and made the home available for tours. The home was in contract within ten days and our father obtained more than his asking price. The sale went smoothly.
Next was the sale of our house that we owned for 24 years. Following the same process and within ever-changing real estate guidelines due to COVID-19, we listed. My wife and I expected a great return on our investment, but we were overbuilt for the area and had no other homes to compare for pricing. Our initial list price gained interest but no offers. After a price reduction we had a lot more interest and finally went into contract for a considerable amount lower than our expectations. All things considered, the thought of retirement and leaving the Great State of California was too much to pass up.
Using Larry Gallegos to represent both our properties was a solid decision. He is a conscientious agent, he did everything within his power to protect us as sellers through disclosure statements, and he worked to get us quick sales and market prices for our homes during very difficult and uncertain times.

My family has known Larry for a long time.
He helped my mother sell her house many years ago.
He helped my husband and I buy our first home in a very competitive market.
When it came time to sell our first home, we knew we wanted to have Larry help us.
Through the process, Larry offered seasoned advice on what we should do to get our home ready to sell.
He recommended getting inspections before putting our home on the market so we could make necessary repairs.
We wanted to ensure that our buyer would feel good about buying our home.
Larry skillfully negotiated with inspectors who were making repairs on our home to get us the best deal and save us money.
When it came time to list our home, Larry helped us price our home with appropriate current market value to attract many buyers.
He used an expert online campaign to attract many potential buyers, so many that there were appointments to view our home every 15 minutes for five days!
When the first few offers came in, we were so excited and ready to sign.
Larry helped us to be patient and wait for more offers.
We ended up receiving multiple competitive offers.
Larry helped negotiate a great deal that was a dream come true.
We know that we would not have sold our home as quickly or for as much money had we used another Realtor.
Larry is an expert in his field and we are so grateful for him.

This is a review of our Realtor, Larry Gallegos, he really had it rough with us.
We are senior citizens and we had lived in our house for forty-four years.
We NEVER sold a house before.
Things have changed immensely since we bought our home in 1977!!
Everything was online and that was so hard for us.
Larry never gave up or got upset with us.
The first time we did DocuSign, that was rough.
Super easy for anyone else but us.
Larry walked us through the whole thing, many times.
He was patient and got us through it even though I was ready to jump off the ledge.
It was hard having to do so many things that we never even thought about.
Larry did everything we needed and walked us through it all.
It was the hardest thing we ever did but three months later, we are happily in our new place.
It was an eye opener for sure.
We saw how much work Larry put into selling our house.
His experience and expertise really made a big difference.
Our Realtor here is sadly, not efficient or does anything Larry did.
They made so many mistakes and continue to make mistakes.
Larry would have never left us hanging as this Realtor did.
I know it may sound petty to complain about another Realtor but the difference is mind blowing.
If you need to sell your home and want the best deal, have Larry Gallegos sell your home for you.
He knows the market, he knows how to best present your home.
He will tell you like it is and he is right.
Don't for a minute think he is wrong.
It was a very emotional experience being older and not technical.
Larry is really good at anything technical.
We just want to thank him again and again for getting us the best deal ever and being so right on about everything.
He is the one to call.
Thank you Larry Gallegos for all you did for us
Dennis and Joyce Alameda
We were so impressed with the way you sold our condo.
You informed us every step of the way.
Very happy with everything!
Thank you so much!
Dan and Kathleen Miller
The advice and knowledge from you about real estate dealing helped a lot to make it a successful sale.
If you are looking for a great Realtor who would follow through, then Larry Gallegos is the one for you.
The whole process of selling the house went through smoothly and continuously without gaps as expected.
Larry Gallegos, of Better Homes and Gardens Realty, made selling our house a very smooth and pleasant experience.
He knew exactly what to do at every step of the process and gave us excellent guidance along the way.
Specifically, he was extremely helpful and responsive.
We could not have been happier working with him!
He remained confident when we encountered challenges and always kept us on target.
I would highly recommend Larry to anyone selling or buying a house.
He was the ultimate professional!

There was a problem of removing a long- term tenant from the property.
Because COVID and the courts being closed, it took much longer to prepare for the sale.
I live out of town, a 3-hour drive, and you were always available to visit the site, talk with the tenants and lawyer and email or call me with daily updates.
When the property was listed, within a few days we received an all-cash offer above the asking price with a 10 day Close.
You kept me sane during this period, your patience and dedication will forever be appreciated.
