"Galina is a Rockstar, everything you need in a realtor when searching for your next home or trying to get a top dollar for your property at a sale! She is very professional, charismatic, always available and responsive, and all-around a great human being with strong integrity and work ethics. The process seemed easy when we had a professional like her helping us on the way. Even in a difficult COVID-19 environment, she made a transaction go very smooth and we closed in 22 days. We will gladly work with her again and highly recommend it! We are very happy we chose Galina to help us buy our first home and a home of our dreams. Thank you! You are the best!" - Masha and Will

"We were so fortunate to have Galina Shekhtman as our realtor. She helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. The house we love! Moreover, Galina sold our condo for the price we wanted under two weeks. The highest in our condominium complex. She was professional, patient and attentive. Galina was always focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs. In short, she was always on our side working to make our house purchase and selling condo as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Galina was that she was a realtor and friend, who we can trust with such a big decision. We would recommend Galina to anyone. We love you! Scott & Janetta Lee Best wishes!"

"I worked with many Real Estate agents, and Galina definitely is one of the best! Her expertise, professionalism, knowledge of the real estate market is really impressive. We live in WA and needed to sell a house in San Diego, CA. She was there for us on every step of the process - preparing the property for sale, cleaning, repair, staging, negotiating, working with escrow, title, inspector, and appraiser. We've got 16 offers in less than a week! She helped us to prepare all documents, and close a week earlier than the initial closing day, and even without us flying to San Diego. If you are looking for an experienced and resourceful agent, Galina is the best choice for everybody who wants to buy or sell property in San Diego and the area." - Zlata
