They far exceeded our expectations. Their professionalism, honesty, and communication is truly second-to-none!
Dale and Helen were our listing agents for a home we sold through a
1031 exchange during the COVID-19 pandemic (July 2020) and was
very pleased!! They far exceeded our expectations. Their
professionalism, honesty, and communication is truly second-to-none!
I wish I could have also hired them to represent me as a buyers agent
after we sold our home but it was out of state! Bummer because they
are THE best agents we know!! I don’t normally take the time to
write a review however when we receive exceptional customer
service, I cannot let it go unnoticed and wish to share the goodness.
Dale and his partner Helen Gardin were invaluable in the entire process of readying my brothers house for sale.
In May of 2018 my brother passed away leaving me 2 properties in
Santa Clara. I live in another state, so it was going to be quite an
ordeal to empty his house of all his possessions and ready the place for
sale. The other house was a rental with a tenant and family living
there. It was an overwhelming task and I was unsure how to get it all
done. Luckily, a close friend of mine was also a close friend of Dale
Warfel and recommended him to me. Dale and his partner Helen
Gardin were invaluable in the entire process of readying my brothers
house for sale. After I had removed all of my brothers important
papers and personal things , I was able to hand the keys to them to
take over the task of emptying the house. I simply could not have
done this without them. It was painful to have to throw away a lot of
his possessions and I was fortunate that they took care of that for me.
Then literally from the roof to the flooring and everything in between
had to be replaced and updated. They and their crew handled
everything in a timely and efficient manner. They did everything within
my budget and the place looked better than it ever had. They put it on
the market and it sold in 1 week at over the listing price. The rental
had been rented to a couple for 7 years with 5 kids and needed a lot of
repairs and cleaning inside and out. Dale advised me on selling the
house “as is” and it sold in a short time at a very fair price.
I would recommend Dale and Helen’s services to anyone I know
without hesitation, it was a totally good experience at a very difficult
time for me. I could not have pulled this off without them, no way! In
the process we have become friends and I look forward to seeing them
the next time we visit the bay area.
They were available day and night and actually did some of the simple things themselves to support our push to get ready to put our home on the market.
We worked with Dale and Helen to sell our San Jose home. We
selected them because of their success in the area and good
references provided. What we received, exceeded our expectations.
There was work recommended to command a higher sale price and
Helen and Dale provided great contractors to work with and managed
the contractor performance the entire way. They were available day
and night and actually did some of the simple things themselves to
support our push to get ready to put our home on the market. We
really appreciated their guidance in staging the home, pricing it and
considering the multiple offers. In the end we got top dollar and they
shepherded us through the closing process and even checked in
recently, 3 months after the close, to be sure the title company got our
new address to send the formal documents for our tax return. We
recommend them highly. If you select them for this intense journey of
selling your home, you will be very happy with the results.
We are very appreciative of Helen and Dale’s teamwork, work-ethic, and collaborative partnership to successfully sell our home.
Tom & Grace Harris
Helen and Dale had recently sold two houses in our neighborhood so I
interviewed them for our home sale. They both had done their
homework before our meeting thus I was immediately impressed with
their market analysis, appreciation for value of the home, selling
strategy, and schedule outlook. They both ensured a seamless process
of executing on inspections, contractor work, staging, photography,
drone footage, and marketing. We moved out a week before listing
while Dale and Helen handled all the details resulting in listing on
schedule, large turnout for broker tours/open houses, and multiple
offers above asking within a week. Even as the COVID crisis hit during
the last weeks of closing they both exhibited professionalism and
determination to ensure the sale. We are very appreciative of Helen
and Dale’s teamwork, work-ethic, and collaborative partnership to
successfully sell our home. Thank You much!
We have and will continue to recommend them to our friends and family in the area with 100% confidence.
When my wife and I decided to sell our townhome in south San Jose,
our first order of business was to research and interview qualified
Realtors. In the end, the Warfel Gardin Group stood out head and
shoulders above the rest. One of our biggest concerns was how best to
upgrade our place with minimal investment to give it the best chance
for success. To that end, Dale and Helen visited our property several
times (around our schedule), going room by room, formulating and
fine tuning a plan that maximized our tight budget. Something I really
appreciated was the constant cost conscious approach they took,
involving us in each decision, weighing expense vs return. Each time
they would discuss openly with us how X or Y might affect a potential
buyer’s impression and subsequent offer, but comfortably
leaving it up to us to decide. Never did they make us feel awkward as
we viewed the change or upgrade thru our necessarily frugal glasses.
Once the plan was settled, Dale and Helen handled 100% of the
interaction/scheduling/property access with the work teams
(contractors, windows, carpets, painters, plumbers, cabinetry etc). We
literally did nothing; we didn’t have to know or vette anyone
which was of HUGE value to us, and when we did check into whoever
they chose to do the work, reviews were all top of the line. And oh boy
did the end result shine! When it came time to consider offers, Dale
and Helen brought us all the relevant details on the potential buyers
(above and beyond the simple offer paperwork), including having
personally talked with their realtors and loan agents to get a sense of
the strength of the offer, all to try to ensure no issues during ESCROW.
This sort of footwork definitely helped us choose the buyer with
confidence, and sure enough, we closed smoothly and even ahead of
schedule. So all this is to say we absolutely made the right choice in
Realtors when picking the Warfel Gardin group. We have and will
continue to recommend them to our friends and family in the area with
100% confidence. Thank you Dale and Helen!!
Dale and Helen helped us to purchase our first home and they were a delight to work with
Dale and Helen helped us to purchase our first home and they were a delight to work with. As we had little to no knowledge about the complex real estate market, Dale and Helen were of great help to us throughout the entire process.
When my wife and I started the search process our search criteria was pretty wide and as a result we wanted to look at a number of properties. Dale and Helen were patient with us and accompanied us to every single property. They were flexible enough to work around our work schedules to schedule these visits be it a late evening visit during weekdays or even on weekends. They always arrived on time to these appointments to receive us at the property and came well prepared to each of these visits, providing info about the property and the surrounding neighborhood. When we shortlist some of the properties, they would provide the comps and the disclosures for the property within the same day. Being a first time buyer, we had no knowledge about what some of the disclosures meant. However, Dale and Helen were patient enough to walk us through these disclosures and were always there to answer all of our questions.
When we finalized a property, Dale and Helen were on top of the paperwork in no time. They were diligent and transparent throughout the process, explaining each and every form to us before asking us to sign. They were tech savvy, too, sending us documents over email and signing them digitally thus saving a lot of time.
Overall I’m super happy that I went with Dale and Helen for my first home and I’ll always recommend them to my family and friends.
Dale, Helen, and their team were invaluable to us in selling our previous home and buying or new wonderful home
Dale, Helen, and their team were invaluable to us in selling our previous home and buying or new wonderful home. The market is crazy and ultra-competitive right now, but we were able to sell our home quickly and for much more than we thought we’d get. On the buying side, we were able to beat out 20 other offers and get the house of our dreams.
The team really shines with all the process and paperwork. We listed our old home, received and accepted an offer, closed, put an offer an a house, went into contract, and closed in about 4 weeks time. During this intense period, there were no hiccups or showstoppers at all. Please understand that no problems does not equal easy, and the underwriter had numerous requests; however, the team did as much digitally as legally possible, and were always available to explain all the asks.
We would not be in our wonderful new home without them.
I can honestly say that Helen and Dale are an amazing
I can honestly say that Helen and Dale are an amazing and HONEST team and they are the best of the best. They helped my family sell our house and then purchase a new house and they stood by us the entire time. They took the time to explain things to us because we did not know how the process worked and they graciously worked out a few kinks with us.
I would recommend them to anyone who is purchasing or selling a house and will always refer them to my family and friends. They are truly amazing and my family is so thankful to have worked with them.
We couldn’t be happier with the service she provided to us
Top rated performance! Helen was always available to answer our questions, very quick and responsive, understanding, and caring. She is very good at what she does.
We recently closed our home, and we could close it in less than 22 days. To make this possible, she followed up with all parties: us, seller agent, loan agents, escrow officer. Helen provided us with all data, reports, and suggested the right offer price for the home.
After the closing, she immediately scheduled termite fumigation, roof repairs, few contracting work items. She was present at all appointments and followed up with them to get the work done.
We couldn’t be happier with the service she provided to us. She is really awesome.
I would highly recommend Helen, a top realtor, to help you get your perfect home. Thanks Helen!
