  • Dale, listed and sold my home

      We had searched for real estate agents on Yelp with the plan of interviewing at least 3. We found a number of them with a 5 star rating and set up our appointments. Dale and Helen were our first appointment and we were very impressed. We still carried through with the other 2 appointments but soon realized there was no comparison. Dale and Helen came across as very knowledgeable, professional, personable and honest. That first impression held true and they far exceeded our expectations. They were always available for questions and advice; they provided expert advice on making a few more improvements; they explained the plan for the preparation and selling phases; they completed expert analysis on the market and provided recommendations for the sale price; the staging was so impressive, making the house look warm and inviting; the professional photos were incredible. The entire process was so much less stressful with their personal attention. Without any reservation, we would highly recommend Dale and Helen!!

    • Dale and Helen are very genuine and honest and will definitely meet all of your needs in regards to buying or selling your home. My family worked with them to sell our house and buy a new one and they walked us through the entire process and took the time to explain everything. Dale and Helen are very hardworking and HONEST and are always available to answer any questions. It was not easy to sell our home and they took charge and graciously got the job done, needless to say we were very impressed. I am very grateful that my family worked with Dale and Helen and I will always recommend them to all of my family and friends.

    • I wanted to write this testimonial for Dale Warfel and his team. We had an excellent experience with Dale and we could not have sold our home as quick as we did for top dollar with anyone else. We hired a so called Top Broker in the Fall of 2016 and gave them our listing for 3 months, it was a disaster from day 1. Not only did we have major issues with this agent and their team, we did not get 1 offer over the 3 month period of time. We decided to regroup and reach out to Dale. It was the best decision we made! Our family had moved out of state and Dale and his team coordinated everything to make sure our house was in tip top shape ready for sell. He recommended a few small things to do to the home in which he organized and took care of our staging. The great thing about this process was his communication with my wife and myself and his professionalism. He literally took care of everything while we were living out of state. His service was incredible but the most important thing was the sale of our home. His marketing plan and follow up was top notch and the results spoke for themselves. We ended up getting multiple offers within a couple of weeks on the market and Dale negotiated a final sales price that sold well over asking price. Dale was amazing and I would highly recommend him if you are looking to sell your home. You will be well taken care of in a professional manner and he will not stop until your home gets sold for the appropriate sales price. Dale and his team are the best, and it's not close.

    • Dale and Helen are wonderful. Very honest and upfront with what will get the biggest bang for the buck when selling your home. The entire team including contractors, painters, stagers, and photographer were all very great to work with and extremely professional. Dale has assembled an awesome group that is talented, motivated and loaded with integrity. My house was transformed into a showcase model in a short time period all while I still lived there. His crew worked with me to make sure I was comfortable and not too stressed out during the transformation. Great group of folks, I just can't say enough how wonderful everyone was. I ended up getting much more for my house than listed. I recommend Dale to all of my friends and family.

    • 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 posessions 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.

    • We closed on the sale of our home today, and I was ready to write a review immediately. Dale and his team did an amazing job. Our house sale was a bit of an unusual situation, we had not planned on selling and a unique opportunity to be close to family came up that we could not pass on. We needed to get our house on the market quickly, but we had been in it for 10 years and there were a number of things on the to do list. We knew picking a realtor would be an important part of the process.After looking at many reviews online and interviewing several realtors, we decided Dale was the person we wanted to move forward with. We liked that he had a strong sales record, many positive reviews on Yelp and when we interviewed him he clearly was knowledgable about the market in our area as well as how to best advertise our home with a strong online marketing approach.Once we hired him Dale began working immediately. If you need work done on your house, Dale knows someone who can do it, no matter what the job is. HIs team of professionals swooped in and within a week and a half had the entire thing ready for the market! The best part was that he made it easy for us, so that we could focus on packing and preparing for our own move.The process ended up being more complicated than we thought. It took awhile to find the right buyer (our house did not totally fit the neighborhood), and then we had a buyer back out on us at the last minute...it turned out to be a bit of a roller coaster ride. Dale was consistently focused on helping us get through it; finding new ways to market the house, holding endless open houses, answering our questions, following up on leads. In the end he managed to find us a buyer that offered more than the original price and closed on our home in only a matter of weeks from the original sales date.We found Dale to be intelligent, hard-working and very dedicated to his clients. Throughout our process he worked through a number of creative solutions to help us get the best deal and was always willing to offer advice when we weren't sure what to do next. We don't plan to move for a very long time, but if we had to we would hire Dale again in a heartbeat. We'd highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell their home!

    • 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!!We were living out of the area and they both managed all the details, including: preparing the property for sale, making a list of recommended repairs and improvements, material selection, vendor selection, project management, home staging, marketing, and negotiation. When an issue came up during escrow, they informed us right away and got inspector in on short notice to troubleshoot the issue. Everything worked out perfectly, we got a great price, and closed on time!It's very unusual for me to 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.

    • DO NOT LOOK FURTHER for an Agent if you are selling your home! Dale Warfel and his team are about as good as it gets! We had prepared several months in advance for the sale of our home and Dale was so patient and informative along the way as we planned to relocate to the East Coast. He watched the Bay Area market closely and was extremely careful in the planning of our home sale price, upgrades, staging and overall preparedness. Our home in the Rancho Santa Teresa area sold in a week with multiple offers over asking in November of 2016 and the process was very easy overall. Again, Dale was very knowledgable and even more informative and patient along this journey. We had been in our home for 17 years and honestly do not regret selling. I found Dale and his team on Yelp and it was truly the best decision we made! Blessings on your journey!!

    • I recently sold my condo in San Jose with the help of Dale and his awesome team. From the first time we met him, Dale went above and beyond to explain his services, give advice about the market and answer our questions. I never felt pressured to do certain things and felt Dale was completely genuine and sincere when advising us through the process. We had something come up and needed to push back our plans a few weeks but Dale was super accomodating and understanding. As it was my first time selling a property, I had a lot of unknowns but felt comfortable trusting Dale's advice. He is straightforward and knowledgable. I never felt like I needed to explain anything or remind him of things - he was very on top of everything from start to finish. We only needed one weekend for an open house and received 3 offers the Monday after. His entire team was also very easy to work with. Communication was easy - email, text, phone... whichever way I contacted them I knew I would get a prompt response. Thank you Dale and team! We would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone looking to buy or sell their property!

    • We just bought a home with help of Dale Warfel and Helen Gardin of The Warfel Gardin Group. I explained my requirements and they gave me complete insight in every single aspect like neighborhood, schools, commute, location etc.Helen was working with us to find right house, in fact we closed on our first open house visit. She is amazing, very patient almost worked as if she was buying a home for herself.Without Helen and Dale's guidance, I would have not made a competitive offer. Very organized, dedicated support, fantastic followup with all stakeholders until they close. In fact Helen was helping us even after closure.Overall as a first time home buyer, I would say Agent matters a LOT!! I had a bad experience with REDFIN agents.I would highly recommend my friends if they are looking to buy a new home.HELEN -You are AWESOME!!!!

      - Naresh K., San Jose (Blossom Valley)
    • We just recently closed the sale of our home in San Jose! Dale and his team are amazing and would recommend him to everyone. We had our home listed almost 3 months ago. We initially hire another agent, but cut our ties with him due to lack of communication and motivation. My wife came across Dale from all of the positive reviews on Yelp. I met with him and he immediately knew what to do to attract clients and draw some excitement. Within a couple week, we finally secured a buyer. It didn't stop there. He continued to arrange an Open House event as a back up plan. The process of selling a home is really stressful, especially when you're living out of state. He made the whole experience pleasant. He was very communicative and kept us up to date. If you are in the market to sell your home, Dale is the guy you want to go with. We are glad we did!

    • In September 2019 I contacted Dale Warfel whom I knew by reputation and through my professional network for several years already. I heard on several occasions testimonials of his work and thought it could be a good idea to engage his services to sell my Sunnyvale home... It was my 8th real estate transaction and I knew what I wanted... I was a bit off in my expectations: it wasnt just a good idea to hire Dale Warfel, it was the best move Ive made in a very long time!!!I made an appointment with Dale and him and his partner Helen Gardin from the Warfel Gardin Group with Keller Williams Realty-Gateway came to my home mid September 2019. In about 2 hours they came up with a plan to refresh, update, modernize and remodel different parts of my home (inside and out) to make it attractive to the current market, and not to break the bank! They both contributed and told me that my what I was considering old looking home was in fact a gem in the making. I was exited and a bit skeptical...In the next week Dale and Helens team of general contractors, electricians, roofers and gardeners came to my home to give their experts opinions on the repairs, deferred maintenance and all the remodeling ideas my realtor team shared with me. New ideas came from that and the estimates came too... Surprise to me because I was expecting to see pricing 2 to 3 time higher than what they gave me. We pulled the trigger and in October the work began...So with all the remodeling and repairs AND with the surprises that came along because we pretty much touch to everything except the walls, the work was on schedule until the end! New copper pipes, new drain pipes, new double pane windows, new entrance and side doors, new bathroom, almost new kitchen, new electrical, refurbished hardwood floor, new landscape, all painted inside out, new appliances and more! You can imagine the amount of work and how many contractors were involved... and 4 weeks later (ok may be 5) it was completed!ALL the contractors were enthusiastic, ON TIME, professional and they all went the extra step. This remodeling exceeded my expectations by far!Throughout this remodeling Dale and Helen were present and were on top of all the work. Communication was really good and I had very few surprises! The contractors discovered a couple of issues that were properly repaired and I knew the new owners would have no problem what so ever with the work accomplished. The house was just not remodeled quickly to sell, it was really updated to be safe, energy efficient and head ache free! I was floored by my experience.Beginning of November Dale and Helen staged the house very tastefully modern/traditional and all my friends who visited and who saw the pictures were absolutely stunned by the transformation, in a very good way.The house came on the market a Tuesday and by Friday we had 3 parties very interested and an we sold the house over market.During this time my realtor team Dale and Helen were very active and negotiated on my behalf very well, respectfully and professionally. The transaction went smoothly and the original schedule was respected until the close of escrow.If you are looking for a team of professional who really understand the market and can represent your interests and be on your side, I highly recommend to hire Dale Warfel and Helen Gardin from Warfel Gardin Group with Keller Williams Realty-Gateway.
