    Chris Gallatin is a highly motivated agent with much knowledge of how the business for selling and buying property works. He was always able to calm me down with his professionalism and insight for solving all problems that occurred during the long process of selling my property and also the process of buying my new property. If he didn't have an answer to a solution he would seek the advice of other professionals he worked with and get back to me in a timely manner. Overall Chris is an intelligent person who thinks on his feet and is extremely trustworthy. "

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

We meet and assess what their goals are, their expectations and their fears. We always listen closelly because we want both our client AND our team to enjoy the end result: a huge transaction made to look like no big deal.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Sona - Interior Design

Chris - Tech Knowledge and luxury item sales

How did you get started in this business?

Sona got her start in 2003, when her brother encouraged her to work for his southbay agency. Both have gone on to reach great highs.

What types of customers have you worked with?

Buyers, sellers and first-time investors.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We had a client appreciation night in Santa Clarita where we took a large party van out to view all the Christmas lighting decorations. We had pizza, sang carols, and had hot chocolate with our past clients and their happy kids.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Regarding commissions: If an agent is willing to give away a percent of their OWN commission, what does it say about their ability to NOT give away your hard-earned money and equity in your home? We strive to price the home on the button, and the rest takes care of itself.
