What are they saying about Gilda . . .

I am a real estate professional and a banker involved in Commercial Real Estate loans with over 20 years of experience in this field. I manage a $10 billion dollar portfolio of commercial real estate loans located all over the US for a lender. I am a USC graduate with post graduate MBA work in Finance. I am also a real estate investor on the side. The reason why I started this letter with my mini-bio is to make sure you, the reader, know what my qualifications are, so that you can better assess and put in perspective what I have to say about Gilda Johnson.


I have known Gilda for over 7 years. She is one of the hardest working real estate professionals I know. She is very knowledgeable about the process of buying and selling homes, residential loans and the process of getting a house “show ready”. But what sets her apart, over and above her intellect and skill set, is her personality, work ethic and attitude towards people, buyers, sellers, brokers, title and escrow agents alike.


Gilda is a catalyst in the entire process of buying or selling a home. She makes sure that everything goes smoothly and without a hitch. From helping the people whom she represents in making informed, well thought through decisions to making sure that at the end of the day, everyone gets a fair shake. Gilda has represented me on a number of purchases and sales in the past seven years and it should come as no surprise that all my friends and family also use her exclusively.


I always thought that going from “good” to “great” is a journey and not a destination. I have to be honest however, Gilda is so far to the right on that continuum that I am not sure anymore if being great is anything but a destination! She gives it 110% no matter what, guaranteed!

You are amazing! My family and I had been searching for the right home for such a long time and were unsuccessful. I was ready to give up when I was fortunate enough to meet you. You knew exactly what we were looking for and encourage me to not give up. Thanks to you we now have the home and the community that we were looking for and are extremely happy!
Thanks for your hard work and friendship!

. . . In each of these transactions there were many challenges and opportunities for disappointment. However, Gilda’s knowledge, energy, follow up and most importantly her integrity with buyer, seller, lender, escrow and other entities involved with the transaction truly differentiates her service from all others. . .

Gilda Johnson is the most professional realtor that I have ever dealt with. I have sold many houses, and my experience with Gilda was fantastic.


I never had to ever think twice about things gettjing done, she was on top of everything. It was the smoothest transaction I have ever had! Gilda was always available, night or day, if I had any questions. She makes you feel like you are her only client.


Gilda is the only realtor I would ever use! She’s awesome.

. . . From our very first phone call, Rich and Gilda made us feel completely comfortable. They listened attentively to our concerns about the process and immediately put our minds at ease and assured us that the experience would be smooth, painless and exciting, which it was. In addition, they showed that they truly cared about our wants and needs by devoting countless hours of their time to finding us our “perfect home.” Throughout the entire process, we truly felt like their top priority.


Once we found the home of our dreams, Rich and Gilda made every effort to get us the best possible price on our house and we are convinced that they are the sole reason why we ended up getting such a beautiful, spacious three bedroom/three bathroom home with a fully remodeled kitchen and a pool, in Brea for the price we would have paid for a condo. They are absolutely amazing!


Not only are Rich and Gilda dedicated, successful realtors, they are kind, trustworthy, honest people that we are proud to know. We have since trusted Rich and Gilda with our business selling my mother’s former condo and plan to return to them with any future business that we can offer them. They are truly a pleasure to work with and we always recommend them to everyone we know, and even people we don’t know! We feel so lucky to have been given the chance to work with them, and we feel that we have not only gained a pair of great realtors, but great friends as well.  CLICK FOR MORE

Gilda, where do I even begin! I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work, honesty and advice when we were selling our home and looking for a new one. You were really there for us. I had never worked with a Realtor before and I must say that I thought most Realtors would be stuffy, impersonal, uncaring, etc. You were the complete opposite from the moment we met! Not only were you extremely professional and very knowledgeable but you made the whole experience FUN, easy, and I feel like we are good friends now, not just your clients. You went above and beyond for us, and I know that we don't hesitate to recommend you to all our friends and family that are thinking of buying/selling. You are #1 Gilda! Thank you!

This is certainly an overdue letter of appreciation. We have been in our new home for six (6) whole months now, and we are loving every minute of it. We owe it all to your hard work and dedication in finding us the "perfect home." We are very grateful, and it was all worth it!

You are a very unique real estate agent. You show the love of your profession by the excellent service you provide your customers. You are generous with your time and you have been extremely patient with us in our search for the right home. You are knowledgeable, very informative, and an articulate communicator. You have always been available and always promptly responding to our calls and e-mails. Also, you brought fun to what an otherwise painful and frustrating process. You made our experience of selling and buying our homes enjoyable. We appreciate the fact that we were not just dealing with a real estate agent, but we were working with a person who cares. We were impressed with your integrity and honesty during the entire process. Ethics are the hallmark of any successful profession. You have certainly led by example. You have earned our trust.

We are fortunate to have the opportunity to work with you and know you. You are a great asset to the real estate profession.

Thank you for everything that you have done for us. Again, we will always be grateful.

I just wanted to thank you for all your efforts in selling my home in Anaheim Hills. When we first talked before I signed up with you, I had the feeling that you were honest and would follow through on your commitments and you didn’t disappoint. You were very professional and knowledgeable regarding real estate in general, the market in my area and the best way to present my home to potential buyers. That together with the aggressiveness you showed in marketing my home proved to be a winning combination.


I wish you continued success and thanks again.

I cannot thank you enough for your dedication and patience throughout our past 5 transactions together. Be it selling my current home or finding my next, you always go the extra mile in every situation and make sure that I am happy. You have helped my friends and family with their real estate needs and they have always been happy with your service, and so grateful to have been referred to you. Chris and Rich are always a pleasure to work with and definitely add to the excellent service you provide. Without a doubt, I will continue to refer people to you when needing an agent in Southern California. You are truly first class and I look forward to our next adventure!

First of all, I want to THANK YOU for your patience and for being such an awesome agent!  You really went the extra mile for me and I appreciate that.

Gilda is an exception to the term "Real Estate Agent" . Gilda's constant smile and professional manner makes buying or selling a home a wonderful experience. As our family has grown she has been there every step of the way in selling and upgrading our homes with amazing ease.   Gilda is not only your agent but becomes a friend.

. . . We have bought and sold several homes in our lifetime.  It is never an easy process, and we have NEVER been satisfied with ANY agent.  I could honestly say that I was disgusted by the amount of commission they got for doing so little.  That all changed with Gilda.  She earned every penny.  In fact, I think she should have gotten the commission paid to our buyer's agent.
I guess the best testament that we can offer is that Gilda will be the only agent that we will ever use to buy and sell any property in the future!  CLICK FOR MORE

. . . Prior to meeting and dealing with Gilda, I had a preconceived notion that all real estate agents were "pushy, impersonal and overaggressive".  My confidence and comfort with Gilda grew daily due to her knowledge, sincerity and friendly demeanor.  Gilda was an outstanding reflection of your company and you should be very proud to have her on your team. . .  CLICK FOR MORE

I know some time has passed since the sale of our house, but I really did want to let you guys know how much we appreciated your help in selling our house.  Both of you were great and definitely made a complementary team.  Gilda you were fantastic at taking our mind off the stresses of selling a home and bringing us back to reality.  Rich, you are the calm in the storm, always providing reassurance and thoughtful guidance just when we needed it.


When we first met, I had already interviewed two other realtors and felt we were going down the same familiar road.  I was brutally honest and told you I had never been satisfied with any realtor to date.  Both of you said you are much more interested in a positive experience than the commission.  Somehow, we believed you.


Now that we’ve had some time to reflect on the experience, I can’t say how impressed and happy we were with your performance.  But it goes much further…I respect you guys and I never thought it possible to respect Realtors.  You have opened my eyes, you have broken the mold and now I can only aspire to be in your league as you have also inspired me to take on a new profession.  Yes, I have become a licensed Florida Real Estate Sales Associate. 


I hope you guys don’t mind being role models.  You also need to know that what you do is much more important than selling houses.  You guys change peoples lives.


Thanks & forever grateful,


Mark, Deanna & Chloe

" . . . thanks for everything you've done for us over the past few months. At first we were expecting this particular transition in our life to be hectic and stressful but you managed to ease the burden of having to deal with all of the outside chaos surrounding our new home purchase.
. . . Not to mention your personal touch that goes in to every discussion, transaction and arrangement. We especially appreciate the fact that you legitimately care about your client's satisfaction. I'm still finding it hard to believe how smooth everything went.
. . . You will certainly come highly recommended to all of our friends and family. Thanks for making us feel as if we were a part of yours."  CLICK FOR MORE

"We have recently sold our home and bought and moved into a new one in the span of 4 short months.  The typically stressful and harrowing experience of moving was alleviated by the guidance and care of our real estate agent Gilda Johnson.  Gilda walked us from start to finish with selling and finding a new home with all the necessary communication and follow up to keep us updated and informed through every step of the process.  She went above and beyond to make sure we understood all of the technical & legal jargon and that we felt safe in the decisions we were making along the way.  We could not be more pleased with our experience with Gilda.  Her compassion and expertise is the reason we are now happily in our new home."
