Don helped my husband and I purchase our first home in the area. We had been looking casually for quite some time, but after meeting Don at an open house, he was able to get a very good understanding of what we wanted in a very short time. He took us to a number of houses that were all real contenders right away. One of the things that gave me the most confidence about Don is his level of knowledge with regard to renovation. He was able to to give very good suggestions about what could be done to a house (remove walls, add-on, simple aesthetic fixes, etc.) and had a rough idea of what those kinds of changes may cost, so we could more easily assess if remodeling was within reach while we were touring the open house. He seems to have an innate sense of peoples’ limits in the negotiation process as well, crafting a win-win deal that is good for both buyer and seller without pushing it too far and allowing the deal to fall through (at least that is how it went with our negotiation, which included a few counters each way.) Don was available any time we needed him, and has always been helpful with questions, referrals to contractors, and assistance in follow-up concerns even months after our purchase.
We absolutely can not say enough wonderful things about Don Galloway! We had been searching for many months for a home in Scottsdale (McCormick Ranch) and happened to meet Don at an Open House. I explained to Don what we were searching for and that same afternoon he took us to another home less than a mile away that met our specific criteria. Don was instrumental in showing us how we could turn the house into the home of our dreams. His professionalism and expertise is second to none. I highly recommend Don to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a house.
It was a blessing in disguise meeting Don. We met him at an open house. My wife has very particular taste, they spoke for about 15 minutes about what she wants and he said I have the perfect house for you. I was skeptical because we had been looking for over a year but decided to go see the house. We loved the house! It was exactly what we were looking for. We purchased it. It was amazing to finally meet an agent who really knows the market. Everyone else we worked with sent us everything that was on the market without filtering out what we didn’t like. Don payed special attention to what we wanted and as a result found us our dream home. Thank you.
