I have known Andy Gillespie for more than 10 years, now. While having no prior relationship, I met Andy in 2013 wherein he was showing me property in Orange County for sale. I have now completed 4 real estate transactions with Andy in South Orange County and can completely attest to his knowledge, professionalism, and high moral standards. Andy is the consummate professional whom I would heartily recommend for anyone seeking residential or commercial real estate need.
Andy was very professional, extremely knowledgeable of the real estate market and went the extra mile to help us in our search for a home in California. We were from out of state and traveled to and from California on a limited basis. His experience in helping clients focus on particular properties of interest was evident; as he quickly narrowed our search to properties we would consider buying. Andy is very well connected with reliable professionals related to real estate in the area, such as financial institutions, home inspectors, local repair services, home insurance and warranty companies, etc., which helped us tremendously in acquiring the proper approvals or documents. He went above and beyond in assisting us when issues occurred during the process of purchasing the home and was very helpful in keeping things on track and bring the final sale to a closure in a timely manner. He was always prompt in responding to our calls or providing information upon our request. Because of his honesty, knowledge and expertise in the real estate business, we trusted Andy's advice and took recommendations concerning the property's value as well as financing options available. In our dealings with real estate agencies, I haven't come across many agents as professional and experienced as Andy and I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Andy was fantastic! I will tell all my friends about how understanding and efficient he is. I was in the process of a divorce and had many frustrating moments getting my spouse to participate and sign the necessary papers. Andy referred me to a lender who could accommodate my needs and worked diligently to move the loan and escrow along. He was very empathetic in dealing with me and guided me along during a very confusing time in my life. A job well done and a very happy ending. I was so pleased with his follow through and attention to detail. I would recommend Andy to anyone in need of finding or selling their existing residence.
Working with Andy was an excellent experience. Selling our home was very emotional for us and Andy was very understanding and patient with us ... Andy worked very hard to make sure we had the best deal possible and didn't miss a beat. Andy was very proactive working with our bank and negotiated with the buyer on our behalf to ease our move after the sale. We look forward to working with Andy on all our future Real Estate transactions! Very professional and a true gentleman!

Andy's attention to detail is second to none. In a challenging market for selling houses he was able to generate significant traffic and I believe maximize selling price. He earned his compensation by handling details which were above and beyond that which is expected by a realtor.

Andy Gillespie was professional and prepared. He gave solid advice regarding pricing & the needed repairs, and he was able to refer many different contractors to assure a fair price. Once the home was prepared for sale, it sold very quickly at the full asking price. Andy stayed involved to assure a smooth escrow and a timely closing. The entire process was quick and easy. I would highly recommend Andy Gillespie, and I will continue to use him for my residential real estate purchases and sale.
Andy is fantastic. His excellent negotiating skills and thorough understanding of the sales process enabled us to close on our dream home and sell our current residence in a tough market. We couldn't be more pleased.

Andy was a pleasure to deal with throughout our entire process. This was my 4th home purchase and I have dealt with other agents in the past that pale in comparison to Andy. Upon closing on our home, Andy went the "extra mile" and left a surprise gift in our living room! No agent has ever done anything like this for me in the past and it just goes to show that Andy truly cares about his client's and their needs.

Andy was extremely patient with me, as I narrowed down my home choices. With his experience, he was able to bring to my attention, things that I would not have thought of, good and bad about a home, to assist in making my decision. He guided me through every step of the process. It was a great experience!
Andy did a terrific job with my condo purchase, from coming up with the initial strategy to win the deal to getting a very attractive lease agreement in place once the purchase was complete. He was very proactive in working the behind the scenes details to make sure all things were covered on our part to close escrow on time and I also appreciated that he pushed hard on my behalf to get me the best loan possible.
Andy was totally professional and walked me through the transaction step by step. He made it effortless on my part. He was quite knowledgeable and if he didn't have the answer he was quick to respond with the correct information

Andy helped us find a house when other real estate agents did not. We lived out of state and it was really challenging to look at houses so he would preview a lot of homes for us of the ones we were interested in from the internet. He worked very hard for us and we appreciated his devotion and commitment. He is honest and a good advocate.

Andy did great job. He was always available for questions and worked diligently to get the deal closed. He cared and made sure we were comfortable with the process and fought to get us the best deal. I would highly recommend his services.
Andy patiently and helpfully helped us look through opportunities, make several offers, and guided us to get the finances and offer just right to get the house we wanted in a very competitive situation. He was always very responsive and fast and we got the house we wanted!

The service Andy provided for us was excellent. As we are foreign clients based overseas he kept us informed and helped with all our enquiries. At no time was anything too much trouble. We would highly recommend his services.
