What our Clients say...
Working with Tony and Shelley was a dream! They listened to what we were looking for in a home and communication with them was impeccable. They worked with our schedules on showings and were always willing to meet and show a house for second or third looks. They were extremely knowledgeable in the real estate landscape of the area and gave professional expertise in negotiations. I highly recommend this team for buying in the Orange County market.
We had an amazing experience with GM Realty twice, both as sellers and buyers. The personal service and extra care was evident from beginning to end. We worked with John, Tony and Shelley and all were wonderful. The team listened to our requirements and helped us sell one property and then find another. Then they helped us over and over again as they worked on our behalf to have a seamless escrow period. We would definitely recommend them.
John & Helen Finneran
God has always provided so well for both me and my mom and although finding you and Shelley was through Tom O, my very dear friend who's always proven himself over and over to also be a very valuable business relationship to me, I fully believe that God sent both you and Shelley to us for just that, to take care of us at the perfect moment! I feel very blessed to have met you all and truly appreciate all of your help.
I know my mom thoroughly enjoyed the wine and cheese and meeting all of you. I appreciate that too! She said she was floating on a cloud tonight because she is so pleased about having it all behind her.
We had a fantastic experience working with Tony & Shelley on the purchase of our first home. Being first time home buyers, we needed a lot of guidance, and Tony & Shelley helped us find and close on the home of our dreams. They made themselves very available to show us any house we were interested in. We really felt taken care of and that they had our best interest in mind. They recommended we take a look at a home we had previously overlooked, and we are so glad they did. As soon as my husband and I saw it in person we knew it was the one. Tony helped schedule our inspections, helped us find various service providers for minor repairs we wanted to do, and was an overall great support in the purchase of our first home! We are so appreciative of all their hard work. We definitely recommend that any of our friends or family who are looking to buy or sell their home work with Tony & Shelley for a great experience!
Remy & Christina Conatser
It’s a pleasure to recommend the services of both Tony & Shelley Salay at Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty. My home was put on the market to sell for an amount in excess of similar homes in the area, which it did. Both Tony & Shelley were exceptionally helpful preparing my house and putting me in touch with other specialists who all made the inside and outside appealing to interested buyers. With Sotheby’s international outreach and advertising, they found a buyer who was truly interested. You could not ask for a more cordial and helpful pair to take interest and render assistance beyond what could reasonably be expected-not only making ready the house, listing it widely and helping with other matters required in selling a home. Thanks to them, their promptness and attention to detail, my house sold within an extremely short time after it was listed.
You two are the best! Thank you for everything and our gift! Blessings to you!
