Over the last several years, Don has helped us to purchase our last two homes and to successfully lease our home too. We have always found him to be professional and accessible, and very knowledgeable about the local area, market trends, and home values. We recommend him to our friends with confidence.
Very knowledgeable and professional. Very approachable, and always returns phone calls promptly. A pleasure to work with. Highly recommend Don's services.
Don has the knowledge it takes to assess the merits and flaws of any house within a few minutes. He knows his job and does it very well, so you can eliminate indecisive moments by trusting his judgement; knowing he has your best interests at heart and will not let you down. He is very determined and deliberate in his approach to finding the right home for you and every step is accomplished smoothly, because of his confident, calm and friendly manner. At one point when we were working together, he extended offers on three houses at the same time. He does not waste time, so you will be signing final papers before you know it. Whatever changes or repairs your new home needs, Don has it covered with his excellent backup team of top notch contractors. As with Don, they are one and all, great guys to work with and are committed in producing nothing less than top quality results. In the end, Don is a guy I know I want to keep as my realtor and friend.
I met Don at an open house and after determining that property didn't fit my needs, he offered to on a tour of homes that he thought would fit. I was already fairly knowledgeable about the market and the neighborhood, but Don's knowledge was encyclopedic and very specific - down to block by block differences in neighborhoods. Really impressive. During our tour we talked at length about market trends, inventory, suitability of properties as a rental investment should I have to move away for a job transfer, as well as ideas on how to quickly add value to an older home. After selecting a home to purchase, Don shepherded the escrow process from start to finish. He met with me at my convenience for signing paperwork, answered questions right away and has continued to remain in touch with updates about the neighborhood, the city, as well as recommendations for service providers as I care for and update my home. Don is tremendously knowledgeable, tireless, and really listens to what his clients want in a home. I highly recommend him.
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.

My experience with Don Galloway was excellent. He responded to all calls and was on top of the sale of our home form the start. Most impressive about Don was his knowledge of the market and statistics. Our home had 2 great offers within the first couple days on the market and one of those actually purchased the home.

We contacted Don while house hunting on Zillow. He was listed as a contact agent on one of the homes we were interested in and after reading several reviews on his service, decided to request additional information. Don called within minutes and though the home wasn't available, he impressed us with his friendly demeanor and knowledge of the area. Don knows real estate. He listened to what our ideas were on the type of home we wanted and immediately went to work finding it. House hunting can be frustrating and overwhelming. Don was patient and supportive through the entire process. He answered all our questions no matter how many times we asked the same ones! It was truly a pleasure working with Don and highly recommend him when buying or selling a home.
I have substantial sales experience myself. I can recognize it and measure it in others. Don has very good skills and a good work ethic too. I have many words of praise and none of complaint.
Don Galloway was the most impressive, knowledgeable and responsive real estate agent I have ever worked with, which has been many. His key objectives were to: first sell my home as expediently as possible, second make sure if there were any lying issues or possible unforeseen issues they would be dealt with prior as to not jeopardize the sale of my home and thirdly make sure the potential buyer(s) have ALL the information so there are no unanswered questions. His knowledge of the real estate market was astounding and very informative. Don sold my home within 7 days after he listed it and is a great representation of what all agents should strive to achieve.

Don Galloway was helpful every time we called on him. He gave us great referrals and is very knowledgable when it comes to how much repairs will cost after we purchased the home. We trust his judgement.

Don showed great expertise and interest in selling our home in Scottsdale, AZ. Our home sold for the full listing price and was the highest comp in our neighborhood and we believe that was due to Don's real estate knowledge and talent.
Don was very dedicated in helping us to buy and also to sell our home in Scottsdale AZ. Don kept us well informed as to what the market was doing and provided helpful advice. The marketing he did was excellent, which included conducting open houses and providing very professional color flyers to potential buyers.
I have Known Don Galloway for the past 12 years. During this time he has negotiated and closed several transactions for me. He works hard for his clients. He's very good at communication. Honest professionalism.
Don found me a home to purchase in September of 2012. I had many ideas of what I wanted in a home and he kept those ideas in mind during my search. There wasn't really anything available in the area that suited me when I first started searching, but Don patiently checked the listings every day until something came up. He helped me to act quickly with the offer and I bought a home that exceeded my expectations. During the search Don was patient and always professional. I rarely run into people who are as professional as Don is.
I met Don at an open house and was impressed by his approach and eye for bank owned and foreclosed homes. I still wasn't sold on the process until we looked at a few homes and started exchanging ideas. Don found me a great home and he negotiated a great price. Don's expertise and connections started after the sale. The house I bought was a complete gut and remodel. His network of expert contractors is what makes Don different. And, he was with me as much as I needed him through the 90 plus day process. I would highly recommend Don if you were looking for a house for yourself or as an investment or flip. He can do it all for you.

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.
Don is highly professional and offers expedient quality service. Don has a strong variety of contacts which can provide help in solving repair and building issues. Don is always up even when you may be down which helps the buying process move along smoothly. I strongly recommend Don to any prospective buyer.

We always start our real estate search on Zillow and we went to a open house Don Galloway was showing. He was friendly and professional and not at all pushy. We told him what we were looking for and the next day he sent us several homes in the neighborhood we wanted. All the homes had everything we wanted and in our price range. When we decided to sell our condo to buy a house we used Don to sell our condo. We were impressed with his marketing skills and how he used social media, online real estate websites like Zillow and others. He was also very helpful on what price to list our condo at. He had a all day open house the first week. We had 17 showings and 2 offers in 3 weeks. Don is a awesome realtor and very ready to work with.
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.
Don had a lot of patience helping us determine in what type of house we wanted to live and where we wanted this house to be located! Thanks, Don!
I highly recommend Don Galloway. I am so impressed by his integrity, local knowledge, work ethic, and ability to find the perfect home for me. I met Don at a house he was holding open. He was incredibly professional and asked very astute questions to help focus on the homes that might be of interest to me. He followed up with a number of homes that were potential candidates, and then spent a hours with me going to each of the homes we identified. He was honest in his assessment of the house, and had great ideas as to how certain features could be improved. Once we found my "perfect home", Don was so helpful with the negotiation, and arranging the various service providers required to inspect the home and close the deal. Don was a trusted advisor through the entire process.
Don is a fantastic real estate agent that never overlooks a single detail, his high energy and enthusiasm greatly reduce the stress of home buying. I have done multiple real estate deals with Don, because I trust his professional expertise and he has saved me from myself on more than one home choice. Donald Galloway loves real estate, he has re-staged my furniture, replaced parts to my drip-system, planted flowers at my front door and much more, not because I wanted him too, but because that is the extra mile he always gives to all price range buyers and sellers.
I have worked with Don twice now, first as a seller in 2011 and most recently as a buyer. This time around he found a unique house that met our needs and then handled some very tricky negotiations that resulted in great deal. He will work just as hard for you if you are spending $200K or $2 million. Previously Don had a spot-on vision for how to renovate our property for a quick sale in a very soft housing market. Under his guidance we stayed within our "fix it up" budget and using his contacts all work was accomplished within two weeks. His marketing and listing timing was excellent. He knew just the price point to list the property which resulted in a sale within 3 days of our listing. Communication is excellent, fast and responsive and he was constantly on task through evenings and weekends. I strongly recommend Don Galloway for anyone in the Phoenix area seeking a top notch residential real estate specialist!
Don is an awesome professional. He is an excellent negotiator. Don was very responsive and has a great deal of knowledge about the Phoenix area. We priced my house correctly according to the market and it sold quickly. He was very helpful with setting up appointments and gave feedback right away. Wonderful experience.
