ABOUT ANNIKA GODFREY
Annika has dedicated the last 2 decades of her life to growing Coldwell Banker’s top teams in Orange County. She has personally generated over two billion dollars in residential listings and sales for those teams and built a reputation of results and trust in the industry.
She founded The Godfrey Group with Coldwell Banker to take her legendary customer service and results to the next level. Her mission is to foster beautiful relationships, producing superior results, and enhancing the lives of others through real estate prosperity and pride of home ownership.
Clients benefit from Annika’s vast experience in all aspects of real estate. They even say this about her: “We greatly appreciated Annika’s calm manner and sense of caring that proves that being a Realtor® is not just her job…it is her passion.” Annika Godfrey began her real estate career in Orange County California in 1998. She was born and raised in the great city of Laguna Hills and graduated in 1991 from the home of the Hawks. After receiving her B.F.A. from Kent State University in Ohio, Annika, a native Californian with Swedish descent, came back to OC offering a diverse background in culture, vision, and creativity. From 1998-2005 she worked independently for what she likes to refer as a “mom and pop shop” real estate firm. Her background there included real estate finance, sales, and appraisal. They instilled core ethics and values that she still utilizes in her real estate practices today, over twenty-three years later.
Building a powerful team to deliver a superior client experience has always been Annika’s key to success. In 2005, she was part of a top residential real estate team with whom she helped grow their business to the #1 team in units sold for all of Orange County. She tirelessly co-created systems, sets and routines that would launch that team into unparalleled status among its peers and fellow professionals.
Luxury Real Estate became part of Annika’s focus in 2010, when she joined forces with the new up and coming #1 Team for Coldwell Banker in Newport Beach. She generated business that led to successful beginnings for that group in the communities of Emerald Bay in Laguna Beach, Ocean Ranch/Bear Brand in Laguna Niguel, Ritz Cove in Dana Point, Nellie Gail in Laguna Hills, Coto de Caza, Huntington Harbor, San Clemente and several other fabulous cities and communities throughout the Orange County area.
In 2015 Annika founded The Godfrey Group. Since 2015 Annika and her team have sold over 250 million in residential real estate and continue to help their clients win at every level.
Annika has a passion to set the industry standard in service, ethics, and results. She was most recently awarded the 2021 America’s Best of California award and the International Society of Excellence award for ranking among the TOP sales professionals in the network of Coldwell Banker in 2020. Annika has also held the #1 Team position in the Laguna Niguel branch since 2016.
Her greatest joys in life are to delight in her loving family, grow her business and team, and to serve others at an exceptional level.
