Before you consider my services, I would like to personally invite you to call any of my past clients and ask them what their experience was like working with me and how I handle critical business situations.

My wife and I were looking to buy back in the Bay Area in probably one of the hottest real estate markets of all time. It would have been easy for Greg to talk us into either over-paying for a place, or settling on something that wasn’t right for us. He was very patient and professional in helping us navigate the limited opportunities. It took us 9 months to finally find a place to call home and we could not be happier!

Greg listened to what was important to us and focused on results. He is not the kind of guy that is going to over-sell you on a place to get a quick sale, but will take an objective point of view and help you think through the pro’s and con’s of a place and let you reach your own conclusions. Finally, what i liked about working with Greg is when it comes time to close the deal, he strips away the emotions and focuses on the financials and negotiates well. In the moment of truth, Greg is able to come through and get the business side done confidently. He is willing to go the extra mile and is generous with his time and experience.

You know how some real estate agents are kind of like used car salesmen? Not Greg! He’s the best! So get this, we bought the first & ONLY house that Greg showed us. Sounds nuts, I know. I was hesitant. But it was move-in ready; super clean, recently & completely remodeled, and tucked away at the end of a quaint cup-de-sac with a big yard. Perfect! However, we wanted a place in a particular area of Los Gatos, but had a budget we were working with. Of course, I was wondering what else was out there. So Greg drove me around to every part of town, showing me what we could get for what we were planning on spending. We could get a tear-down in the area that we love, but then we’d have to flip it. Financially, that wasn’t an option. We’re super happy with our new home & have Greg to thank for it! Not only is he a great agent, he’s a great friend. Very personable, smart, and knows his stuff!

Liz & Mike L

 

Greg has been a terrific Realtor for us over the years. 6 years ago we were living abroad and he helped us sell our house in California – he took care of everything, from helping our tenants move out, to completely updating our home and getting it ready to sell. He sold the house for a great price within a week, and took care of every detail. Since then, he’s helped us buy two other homes, and is currently selling one for us.

He’s a “one-stop shop”, who can bring to bear his network of specialists to ensure that everything is taken care of smoothly and effortlessly, from start to finish. We highly recommend Greg to anyone looking for a realtor in the South Bay.

Thanks,
Justin

 

We can’t say enough great things about Greg Simpson at KW Realty! Greg helped us with the purchase of our home and we did not hesitate to call him up when it came time to sell. Being half way across the country, we could not coordinate all the repairs for the house, but Greg stepped in and arranged for contractors to give us bids and supervised the work from beginning to end. He gave us great advice on how to make the house more marketable and he knows how to do things right! He is extremely professional and very knowledgeable of the market and we would recommend him to anyone.

Kit & Chris

We wanted to thank you for all your hard work and tireless efforts throughout the process of listing, marketing and facilitating the sale of our home for 30 years.

You are fine example of a professional salesperson who – “Makes Things Happen”!

Ron & Susan Hanna

 

Hi Greg, I wanted to write you a letter thanking you for the work you did on helping Holly and myself to sell our home… with your help I am confident we got top dollar for our house. I was very impressed with your professionalism and the way you kept me informed every step of the way…. If any of your clients would like someone to talk too as a reference, please feel free to give them my number. Thank You So Much.

Rollie Lawrence

 

Greg and his team get it done! We have used Greg on three separate occasions and the results are consistent. Contract, closed, money in the bank! In addition to performing traditional Realtor services, Greg is very hands on, coordinating details from painting to staging to really everything. Greg and his team remove potential snags before any become an issue. We don’t stress on the closing day, because I know the transaction is already 99% handled before the official close. We just sit back, relax and watch for the money to be wired into my account.

Randy and Jennfier Levy

 

Greg did a great job of selling our home in Cambrian Park. He was very professional, organized and enthusiastic throughout the entire process. He left nothing to chance and followed up on every detail to avoid any potential problems. It was also fun working with Greg and getting to know him.

Mark & Doujuana Vincent

 

I have several family members and good friends that are Realtors and I choose to have Greg list my properties because he puts the PRO in professional! He makes it happen and does what it takes to get the deal DONE! I have never been so happy paying a commission! He actually earns it!!

Ed and Michelle Rogers

 

Talk about full-service!!! We recently moved back to Canada and left Greg with all the responsibilities of the home. He and his Assistant coordinated all the resources in getting the home ready for the market, as well as keeping the home up in our absence. Greg negotiated a contract with price and terms that we were very pleased with. Everything went off without a hitch! Thank You, Greg!!!

Scott & Barbara Trasler

 

Dear Greg and Greg’s prospective clients,
I had the Daves Avenue property listed at various times over a five-year period and used agents from Alain Pinel and Coldwell Banker during that period. It was not until I listed the property with Greg Simpson at Intero that I finally got some action. Job well done Greg.

Alan Gregory

 

Greg Simpson and his team did a phenomenal job of selling our home in San Jose in an extremely difficult market. Greg is very meticulous in all details involved in Marketing your house for sale. From the initial setting of the selling price based on comparative sales, to marketing materials, photos, virtual tours, inspections and setting up open houses. He and his team are always returning phone calls promptly, making it as convenient as possible for getting people to see your home and marketing your house on all fronts. Even as the falling real estate market dictated a course of action, Greg was patient and thought through each step before making a recommendation. We ended up selling our house in a shorter period of time then anticipated and at a higher price. My wife and I recommend the Greg Simpson Team and Intero Real Estate Services to get your home sold!

Paul & Elaine Genevro

 

Working with Greg on the buying of our new home and the selling of our previous home made an otherwise overwhelming experience quite manageable! Because of Greg’s negotiation skills, we bought the house of our dreams, and were able to quickly sell our previous home above our asking price. Greg was extremely professional, yet also very personable throughout the whole process. His willingness to help move furniture to stage our home and to drop off documents to us was especially helpful for my wife, who was feeling very sick in the first trimester of her 3rd pregnancy! Greg was also wonderfully patient with our 3 and 5 year old sons’ questions and demands on his time whenever he stopped by! We felt well taken care of by Greg and highly recommend his services!

Craig and Angie Smith, Los Gatos

 

Greg recently handled the sale of our home and purchase of our new home and we would highly recommend his services to anyone. In a very difficult market, Greg was able to sell our home at the price we wanted in a relatively short period of time, while similar homes in same area did not move. When purchasing our new home, Greg negotiated tirelessly with a difficult seller to get our deal done. With a very tight schedule, Greg and his team worked closely with the lender, title company and sellers agent to overcome several obstacles and was able to get the transaction closed in only 17 days. Great Job!

Larry and Vera

 

Greg and his team did an absolutely fabulous job in selling our home of 32 years. We expected things to be more difficult in today’s real estate climate, but Greg’s excellent understanding of our neighborhood as well as the overall market was key and he was right on with everything he said. Besides having great communication with us, he delivered results that we are very pleased with. Just super!

Barry and Vicki Temple

 

I grew up in the real estate business, as my Father was a well-respected real estate broker in the Bay Area. I have bought and sold many homes and was thor­oughly impressed with Greg’s deep understanding of the market and the escrow process. Greg possesses a level of professionalism that I have not seen in a long time. He has a marketing strategy that really works – our home sold in 8 days! Greg was hands on from beginning to end. I recommend Greg to anyone who is looking for an agent who is professional, innovative, honest and trustworthy. Thank you Greg!

Jay and Michele Breuner, Monte Sereno

 

We were extremely satisfied with Greg and his ability to grasp the sensitivities of our situation. We were fortunate in that we didn’t have timeline restrictions to purchase a new home but were interested in a search for the right home for our family needs. Greg was patient yet persistent and inevitably found us exactly what we had been looking for. Always professional and respectful of our uncertainty, yet resourceful enough to provide significant value in the process of identifying the best possible move for us. I intend on using Greg for my future residential needs.

Rob and Dawn Hakim

 

Greg is a true professional. What stands out to me is that he is passionate about his work and in addition to knowing what he is doing Greg is willing to roll up his sleeves to get it done. I have seen this several times through out many homes he has sold for me. If your thinking of buying or selling its very worth while to meet with Greg. When you look up “Realtor” in the dictionary Greg’s picture should be there.

Ed Rogers

 

The Greg Simpson team was essential in helping us sell our home in 5 days! His guidance and leadership from staging the home, when best to put the house on the market and navigating us through multiple offers was huge! We highly recommend Greg and his team.

Bruce and Jennifer Anderson

 

Greg is the consummate professional Realtor. He provides a wealth of information about the general market and the Los Gatos / Saratoga area and he understands what is necessary to represent his buyers and sellers. When he presented offers to us, he provided very good guidance and was very candid in setting our expectations. Before switching our listing to him he provided great feedback on the house and what things should be highlighted and where pricing should be set based on market conditions. We have referred him to several friends who have seen the same positive results that we experienced when working with Greg.

I will continue to recommend him first and foremost to anyone who asks, and in the future when needing a Realtor I will not go anywhere else.

Aaron Feigin

 

Our family is so appreciative of Greg’s outstanding support in selling our home. Greg is lovely to work with; professional, action and results-oriented. His communication and negotiation skills were excellent. We would recommend Greg and his Team to anyone in need of real estate expertise.

Chris and Amanda Lane

 

I have purchased 6 homes and Greg was by far the best realtor I have ever used. He was not only punctual, with high integrity and produced great results, but he also is very personable, able to answer all questions I/we threw at him, about and very creative. For example: between the time we saw the house we eventually bought and his office, while in his car, he contacted the realtor representing the seller and found out several key pieces of information to help us make the offer that was accepted (beating out 2 other offers). My wife shares my opinion and we will definitely use Greg when we sell our home.

Bob West

 

My wife and I were extremely fortunate to have been referred to Greg by 3 separate families in our circle. For those who have known me for many years they can attest to my general disdain for the run of the mill residential & commercial real estate broker. Greg is a pro, he has the patience to deal with a hothead like me and he has persevered through 3-5 year purchase timelines for several families attesting to his willingness to make a long-term commitment for his clients. Greg , my wife and I set our sights on two separate properties , as any good negotiator knows you must have options to extract maximum value through real or perceived leverage. We moved fast ,efficiently and while putting Greg under extreme stress we were able to extract the best possible outcome for us. Greg has been involved in real estate and technology sales for many years, he has extremely high ethics and I would most certainly use Greg again for any of my residential real estate needs in the future. I could not recommend a real estate partner more that Mr. Simpson.

Vlado Herman

 

Greg, I wanted to let you know I just bought a new Corvette with the money you made me on my home. Thank you!

Jack Buterbaugh

 

Greg Simpson’s detailed understanding of the sales process along with his market familiarity proved to be a winning combination for us on the sale of our home. Greg advised us on what made the most sense in preparing our home for the market and also found us an excellent Realtor in Colorado.

The Brown Family

 

Working with Greg Simpson is like having the team in the Verizon commercial standing behind you! I recently used Greg to both Sell and Buy a home. As a buyer, you know you are going to get the best deal because Greg goes after it like it’s his own house. As a Seller, you get what you pay for with Greg and KW. Greg and KW are a well-oiled marketing machine!

Mark Whitlock

 

Greg Simpson provided an impeccable and seamless orchestration in the sale of our San Jose hone. Once we asked Greg to execute our listing, he provided a clear and concise game plan for a top dollar sale. He preformed excellent under our tight schedule utilizing his vast market knowledge and suburb people skills. Greg truly knows how to represent his clients making this process All Good!!

Ray and Terryann

 

Greg Simpson did a great job selling our house in San Jose, CA. We listed on a Wednesday with an open house that weekend. Took offers on the following Tuesday and received ten offers! I truly believe that the number of offers reflected Greg’s marketing channels and price positioning of the house. We received more than we ever thought we would get for the house and it was due to Greg’s proactive approach and professionalism in delivering on his word. We have recommended him several times to friends and family.

Ken and Renee

 

When my husband and I learned that we were expecting our first baby, we quickly realized that our 1100 sq. ft. home was too small and our neighborhood was not as desirable as we would like. W thought about selling, but realized that we were in a comfortable position with our mortgage payments and did not know if we were ready for a change. In addition, we felt our home needed some work before it would be ready to sell. We met with Greg and Stacie to get some information and advice on how to prepare our home for sale within the coming year or so. We were extremely impressed with what they had to say and with their approach and ideas about real estate. To our surprise, we decided to sell within a week, and only a week after that, our house was on the market. Our house sold in 11 days, and even better, we immediately found a home that we loved in a great neighborhood. Greg closed the deal on our sale and purchase with such ease. We had complete confidence and trust in the “Greg Simpson Team.” I could not have imagined or hoped for a smoother deal.

Isaac & Katie S.

 

We recently listed our home with Greg and the experience was tremendous. We were moving out of the area and needed a quick sale. The results we obtained exceeded our goals and the process could not have gone smoother. We attribute much of the success to Greg’s strategy, his attention to detail, constant communication, and his professionalism. Greg even went out of his way to rake leaves in the pouring rain to get ready for our Virtual Tour and dealt with our two Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs on several occasions. We trust Greg’s judgement and would gladly refer any friend or family to Greg for their real estate needs.

Chris & Steve A.

 

Greg is an exceptional real estate agent! He helped navigate buying a home in a very tough real estate market and was exceptional in finding great homes that would find my needs, was always available to shoe me homes and he and his team moved very quickly on making offers. Greg is trustworthy, has high integrity and knows this industry better than anyone. He has very strong relationships with selling agents throughout the area, which definitely helped in closing the contract on the house. He truly is “as good as it gets!”

Annamarie D.

 

We recently got married and Greg helped us purchase our first home together. We were referred to Greg by friends of ours and immediately felt good about hum the first time we met. Greg was extremely thorough and driven to find us exactly the home that we dreamed of. He went above and beyond to accommodate our schedules on weekends and evenings. We had worked with several agents before meeting Greg, and nobody will work harder to find you what you’re looking for. WE had been out of town for a weekend of open houses, but Greg discovered a house the following week the day they were taking offers. He let us know about it in the morning and by 6pm that evening we had fallen in love with the house and they got an offer in the door. Thanks to Greg’s great presentation and airtight offer, we were able to win the bid, despite not being the highest offer on the table. WE will definitely use Greg again and would recommend him to any of our friends

John and Carrie W.

 

Putting our home on the market six-weeks before we were expecting our 2nd child was a bit of a nervous situation. Greg was unbelievable in the way we managed the listing and open house process, and kept us abreast activity. He really took a lot of the anxiety out of the process, and his compassion and communication was greatly appreciated. In the end, we met our objectives and got into escrow before #2 arrived with a contract we are pleased with.

Paul & Karen K.

 

Greg’s involvement in the sale of our home was very rewarding! He kept us informed of what was going on behind the scenes and basically lowered the stress level of the very emotional situation. His pricing strategy was awesome and provided the results we were looking for! I would confidently recommend Greg’s services to anyone who is looking for a true professional.

Kent G.

 

My Fiance and I were looking to purchase our first home in an extremely challenging market and trying to do so before our wedding. We’d spent several months searching the MLS Listings online and traveling our every weekend to open houses. We were referred to and met with Greg with only a couple months before the wedding. He assured us that we’d be in a home before we left for our wedding. Greg communicated with us every step of the way and took care of our every need. When we’d get frustrated with the market, he’d pick us up with his energetic pep talks and positive attitude. Greg makes things happen by creatively trying to find ways to turn perceived negatives into positive advantages for his clients. In a challenging housing market it is his creative thinking that will become the difference you need to get the home you want. Just as Greg promised from our first meeting with him, we got the perfect home and were able to start our lives together in our new home when we returned from our honeymoon.

Kevin & Lora C.

 

Greg Simpson is a great asset to have when purchasing a home. I met with Greg simply to get an idea of how close or how far I was from reaching my goal of owning a home. A month later he made it happen. Although I could not offer the highest bid for the property I wanted, Greg had the brilliant idea to offer a quick close, which helped me win the bid. If Greg hadn’t of been so persistent getting the necessary information from the lackadaisical listing agent, we would have never known to utilize that strategy. The process can be overwhelming, but Greg helped me keep my sanity. Greg really took the time to understand my needs, and made sure they were met. Thanks again for everything Greg!

Danielle S.

 

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Greg Simpson for more than 10 years. His professionalism, work ethic and communication skills are a tremendous asset to his clients and associates. Greg has continuously been a Top Producer- in life, at work and at play. I highly recommend him to you and truly believe he possessed the characteristics to be a valued friend long after your transaction has been completed.

Bryan W.

 

Greg is the consummate professional. He listened to our needs and brought us a list of well qualified properties to view, one of which was the home we purchased. Greg knows the market very well and was always available to help us with our search. We would highly recommend Greg to anyone who is looking to buy a home in the Bay Area, we was a pleasure to work with.

John V.

 

Before finding Greg I was extremely stressed about purchasing my first home. I was pleasantly surprised by his level of dedication and commitment. He removed the stress and uncertainty from the process. Greg was willing to take on as little or as much responsibility as I wished. I opted for Greg’s “Auto-Pilot” option in which Greg took care of nearly all the transaction details and provided me with easy to digest reports. When action was required on my park, Greg was there to provide guidance and reminders. He was able to negotiate everything I asked for and more! I could not be more pleased with the outcome. I will work with Greg on all of my property transactions in the future. I won’t hesitate to refer my family and friends to Greg as well. Thanks Greg! Great Job!!!

Kevin B.

 

Greg did such a fantastic job in selling our hone so quickly and painlessly. It was a smooth and easy transaction. Greg is very thorough and professional and we would definitely use him again.

Jan & John C.

 

Greg got us the house of our dreams. In “the epicenter of crazy”, competing against all-cash offers, we were losing hope. When we finally found the perfect place, he made the deal happen. He made that key personal connection with the sellers. He found out what we had to do to win the bid and he convinced them that we absolutely loved that house and that the deal would go smoothly”

Laura & Rick

 

Couldn’t be happier with the results we achieved in working with Greg and his team. We were nervous about selling and buying our new home in a tough economy and market conditions. Greg came in and mapped out the entire process from what would be needed in selling our home, to buying our new home. He kept us up to date every step. When an issue did arise, he not only explained to us what was going on but also managed it for us in a very professional way. The end result was a seamless transition from one home to another!

Bruce A.

 

If you are looking for a great realtor, Greg Simpson is your man. He worked tirelessly to help us find a home for our daughter. We gave him specifics in what we wanted and it needed to be done in a timely fashion. Now all parties are happy because of Greg!!! His dedication, knowledge and negotiation skills are impeccable. He is very reliable, trustworthy and honest. Greg is always prompt with a text or call and I felt very comfortable with him. I knew he would find us something- there was never a doubt in my mind. Greg also has a good base of vendors you can work with after purchasing a home and puts you into contact with them. I now think of Greg as a good friend!

Beth & Trent B.

 

My wife and I were moving from the East Coast to San Jose with a young baby and looking for a suitable home in a really tight market. Greg was referred to me by my manager who said Greg was really good and boy was he right!

I was traveling back and forth for couple of months before we all moved and had looked at quite a few places with Greg. We made couple of offers which fell through and had almost decided to go rent when a house came on the market when we were still on the East Coast. Greg went over and beyond what any other agent would have done taking detailed videos of the house and walking us through them so we could get a sense for the place since we were remote and feel like we had seen the place. He had a really good sense for what we were looking for and was spot on. He counseled us every step of the way through the process and was masterful in his negotiations to get us the home in time for when we would move from the East Coast. This was a big big deal for us with a young one and new jobs. Not only that but Greg also helped line up really good recommendations for us to get some improvements done before we moved in and that’s worked out really well.

Greg’s knowledge of the local market, negotiating skills and relationships with other agents is phenomenal! Greg is top-notch and really know how to build trust and confidence in a very personable manner with his clients. He absolutely stands out in all respects and highly highly recommend him.
