SOLD!! Represented both Sellers & Buyers

Notes from the Agent~
Yayyyyyy closed another one for the people! I represented the sellers who already moved to North Carolina and these wonderful buyers gave us the photo opp. We represented them too. We do both and we do it well. It’s difficult to navigate a dual agency deal but everyone got what they wanted. My sellers got 100k more than they initially wanted and I said I have a goal in mind and I’d like to target that goal. Well, yup….we did it! We got our sellers 100k more than they wanted and our buyers are over the moon excited. Natasha is an amazing partner and I’m thrilled she got to work with the buyers on this. Team work makes the dream work!!!!


I love these people & I love what we were able to do for them!!!

Notes from the Agent~ Major Success Story

I don’t even know where to start with this one… but I’ll try. The very condensed version: In 2016 my son needed some extra…..“something.” We immediately knew Master D at Aliso Hills taekwondo was it. He helped us with H in so many ways. Parenting takes a village. As I was growing my team and business I had an incredible team member Peter Barretta Come to me with a wonderful family (Barry K) that may need my help someday. Well, Peter unfortunately passed away, way too young. Wayyyy too young.

In 2017 I met Barry with whom I was introduced to by Peter. I had continued to call Barry and grow a friendship with Barry. We talked about his plans, real estate, his family and so much more. We met several times at his home on Via Larga to discuss “someday” selling his home.

Sam, his son was still in college so he really wasn’t ready. He’d occasionally call me and ask me about paint or carpet or if he should do this or that. We spoke of market conditions and so much about pricing and what his home could or would sell for.

Well, as I continued to check in….and he’d check in with me too. He always asked me if anyone wants a one story home in this neighborhood to call him. He said that for 4 years. He never wanted to put his home on the market for many many reasons. (Not my story to tell).

Well fast forward to June 2021……Paul D'Ambrosio and Kim D'Ambrosio needed to sell both of their condos, do a purchase as “contingent” buyers with 2 homes on the down leg. OMG it’s near impossible to do that in this market with one home, let alone 2. I had just spoken with Barry again a week prior to meeting with the D’Ambrosios. Boom it was time! Master D was describing Barry’s home and didn’t even know it. I knew it. Needless to say this is an obvious outcome that I could go on and on about, but this would be 30 pages, and “ain’t no one got time for that!”

I love all these people here and thrilled that everyone GENUINELY got what they wanted. Happy closing day friends!!!! And thank you Peter for your constant presence.

You’re adorable and we loved working with you!!!!

Hip hip hoorahhhhh! These cuties recently closed on their first home. Native (OC)Californian’s just like me. I’m so happy for them! They can now live freely beyond the confines of apartment living while building equity & long term wealth. (Ps. There’s nothing wrong with apartment living)…..however, when your baby becomes a toddler, they need space. I remember that same feeling, knowing my needs were changing as my family grew. Congratulations K family. You’re adorable and we loved working with you!!!!

We are here for you!! 

Notes from the Agent~ In 2016 Natasha sold these lovely people this lovely model home @ 53 Kestrel in Irvine. Fast forward to 2021.....we just listed and sold their home together. They had a baby, stayed inside for a year during the pandemic and are now moving to a big beautiful home in Kentucky.  We are here for you!!


We are beyond grateful for their amazing service!

Annika and the Godfrey Group were nothing short of amazing. From the moment we met them until we closed on our house, they were quick to respond in both action and communication. We advised on what we were looking for in a house and also specific neighborhood. They took it upon themselves to send a letter to the neighborhood... and it worked! A homeowner responded right away. They helped us negotiate a great price in a sellers’ market. We are beyond grateful for their amazing service.

Seriously, you can't go wrong w/ Annika & her entire team

Can't say enough about the professionalism of Annika and her team. Buying and selling a house is stressful enough without worrying about who is representing you. Every question, every concern -- they were on top of it. Seriously, you can't go wrong with Annika and her entire team. They are the best!

Annika & her team knocked it out of the park, far exceeding our expectations

I can hardly put into words how AMAZING Annika is to work with! From the first phone call we had, where Annika took the time to discuss our exact needs and wants with selling our home, to personally helping us with every detail of getting our house ready to put on the market (we had a sensitive situation and were also selling while living 500 miles away), to actually selling our home in record time, Annika and her team knocked it out of the park and far exceeded our expectations. We have sold several homes in the past with different realtors, and this experience was unlike any we’ve had before- it was 100 times better! Her professionalism, excellent communication, and expert advice and support made selling our house a wonderful experience. And the story doesn’t end there! Annika ended up finding us our dream home, before it was even on the market, and we were able to get the home over 6 other offers! Everything went smoothly and it was a seamless transaction. If you’re thinking of buying or selling a home, please look no further and be sure to call Annika. She is seriously the best in the business and we are so grateful for how she has helped our family's dreams become a reality this year!

I highly recommend The Godfrey Group!

I was fortunate to have Annika Godfrey and her team Natasha Spector and Logan Musulas as my realtor finding me and my family a replacement home in midst of divorce dilemma. Within a very tight schedule not only they found a home that kids did not miss what was home for years, they did it in such a way that I did not have to deal with extra burden during such exhaustive process. Annika, Natasha and Logan are expert in this field and supported me at many levels; the legalities of such sensitive transaction, the emotional aspect of it, and the after sale support, yet not losing focus on a selection that would be a fit, a home. I highly recommend Annika, Natasha, and Logan!

Getting offers accepted isn't easy right now~ Annika wrote ONE offer & Beat out 20+ other offers to get our DREAM home

Homes in Southern California are expensive, so as first-time home sellers, thinking about commissions being paid out in the high five digits had me regretting the experience before it even started. It had me seriously considering the discounters that you hear on AM sports talk radio. But then we interviewed some agents and we realized how complicated selling and buying were and that the commissions are really simply protection, by choosing a quality agent, against all of the things that can go wrong. The commissions are also an investment for getting the best price and more importantly the best terms with no problems for selling your home. So, we went with Annika and her team to help us buy and sell. And we will never regret it. Writing and getting offers accepted is not easy right now. We wrote one offer and beat out 20+ other offers to get our ideal home. That is amazing. Since we bought our dream home before selling our current home it was essential to get our home sold and get our funds fast so that we weren't doubling our mortgage payment and paying double on our utilities and insurance. Annika and her team got us offers for $50k over our listing price and netted us much more than we thought and more importantly we got our funds in less than 21 days. Yes, the market right now is super-hot; however, when you think of all the moving parts in buying and selling the number of things that could go sideways are high. Both transactions were seamless. Her help did not stop after escrow closed on our last transaction-During the hottest damn day in California history our AC went out in our new home. Home Warranty was not helpful on Labor Day weekend. Annika was helpful by calling her guy and getting someone over ahead of many other hot customers that were in line before us 🙂

I feel like we found some new friends in the process

Moving me out of my home of 36 years and finding a new home was not going to be easy for this team but with lots of prayer and Annika and her team it was a wonderful and stress-less experience. They were all so friendly, also available to answer questions whenever there was one and lots of support during the whole process. I would highly recommend this team and Annika. I feel like we found some new friends in the process.

Annika & her team are very knowledgeable about all the documentation & made the process go smoothly

Annika Godfrey and the Godfrey Group helped me purchase a home in Aliso Viejo, CA. I am a veteran of the armed forces and was using VA financing. This is my third home purchase, so I've had previous experience with the process. Annika and her team are very knowledgeable about all the documentation I needed to make the process go smoothly. They worked well with my lender and I believe made the whole process go a lot smoother. I will definitely be calling on Annika and her team when I am ready to purchase again.

If you want the BEST realtor in Orange County- you need Annika Godfrey!

If you want the best realtor in Orange County you need Annika Godfrey. She is knowledgeable, efficient and well prepared. She has her client’s best interest at heart. She walked us through each step of the sales process. Annika sold our house in one week. She got us over asking price. Annika and her team were always available with answers to any questions we had. We definitely plan on using Annika for our real estate needs in the future.

We just loved our entire home buying experience thanks to her and her team

Buying a home is super stressful, but we didn't feel any with Annika. She handled everything behind the scenes for us and didn't involve us in anything that might make us worry or feel stressed. She went to bat for us before closing and got the sellers to handle all of our requests. We closed 33 days after the moment we saw and fell in love with our dream home. Annika is professional, but also fun and down to earth. She understands the business side like no other, but her energy and vibe are completely down to earth, full of gratitude and generosity. I cannot recommend her enough! Oh- and her responsiveness by text, email and PHONE are immediate! She doesn't hesitate to pop on a call day or night, which is super refreshing! & We just moved into our dream home 33 days after the moment we saw it thanks to Annika. She referred us to the best mortgage people to make it happen too. She calls, texts and emails to ensure no one ever feels stressed. She takes on the burden of all the details and stress, while shielding us from anything that might make us feel unsettled. She's a phenomenal negotiator and business woman with a sweet and generous heart. Her energy is really special. Full of joy! We just loved our entire home buying experience thanks to her and her team.

I am more than happy to recommend The Godfrey Group to ANY seller or buyer

We decided on The Godfrey group to sell our home, mostly because Annika had good local knowledge and understanding of the buyer profiles interested in the area. Her group was extremely proactive in marketing the property, producing beautiful photos and videos for online real estate databases and gorgeous full color pamphlets for the open houses. Even in the midsts of Covid-19, The Godfrey Group had prospective buyers in place very quickly and a firm offer in a matter of weeks. The sale was handled by Annika and I cannot praise her enough. She and her entire team kept my husband and me up to date at all stages, and they were extremely easy to contact and speak with at our convenience. In addition, Kristina and Logan at The Godfrey Group made the admin side very easy. We were also simultaneously in the market to purchase another home. Natasha at The Godfrey Group was equally as helpful, friendly and efficient. She took us to a number of homes for viewing and notified us about a new listing almost the same hour a home went up for sale based on our specific requirements. I am very pleased to say the whole experience was straight forward, quick and stress free. I am more than happy to recommend The Godfrey Group to any seller or buyer.

She is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Annika is the best!

Annika helped me, and my husband purchase our first home. She showed us six properties that we were interested in on a Sunday afternoon. She understood that we were busy and needed to get it done. She is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Annika is the best!

Professionalism & Personality define The Godfrey Group

If you have ever had a day where all the lights were green going to work, this is the experience you will have with the Godfrey Group. Professional and personality define the team. We sold our home for the price we asked. We bought our home for the price we wanted. On both sell and purchase, Annika and Natasha, respectively, were relentless and on top of the game every step of the way. And you get the whole team. The lights are all green, what are you waiting for.

We recommend Annika to ALL of our family & friends, we are glad we have a trusted agent for future real estate needs

We have now sold 2 homes and purchased 1 (soon to be 2) homes with Annika as our real estate agent. She brings with her a ton of industry knowledge from an experienced career, a competent team that handles the logistics of a transaction, and a positive attitude that helps during the arduous task of house hunting. We have had nothing but the best experiences with her brokerage.
From the seller side she provides contacts for staging, she includes great photography work and brochures in her marketing materials during the sale of a home, and she holds numerous open houses (following up with ever visitor after- which is key).
On the buyer side she is just as helpful, by showing properties or having her team show them if she is not immediately available. She has pulled both sale and rental comps for many of the places we were interested in, and she is pragmatic about the offer and counter offer process - not every offer is going to work because you want a good deal! Above all else Annika is great at keeping constant communication and processes moving forward. We recommend Annika to all of our family and friends and are glad we have a trusted agent for future real estate needs.

Crushed it in Covenant Hills

We are grateful to have had Annika assist us with our first home purchase in California. We felt we had a close friend and experienced pro with us throughout the entire journey. Her personalized attention was amazing, especially navigating a rather challenging property. Annika's support, patience and understanding of our needs and timeline played a critical part in our experience, resulting in exactly what we wanted. We look forward to working with Annika again in the future. We are forever grateful.

Annika kept ALL of her promises from beginning to successful end.

I needed to sell my very special, custom, luxury home in San Clemente. I built this home from the ground up. I knew it needed fantastic marketing and the right agent to help us get the job done right. Before we met Annika, we hired not one, but two local specialists to sell our custom home. They both failed. They both made promises they didn’t keep, but not Annika. Annika kept all of her promises from beginning to successful end. Thank you Annika & The Godfrey Group for everything you did to help me and my lovely bride of 32 years. You helped us successfully sell our custom home and transition into an even more satisfying home in San Clemente. We are truly grateful for all you did to help guide us through everything including marketing, negotiating, negotiating repairs, and helping us win the home of our dreams even in a crazy market with a house contingency. You and your team are second to NONE!

Annika Godfrey was like Mary Poppins~she came into our lives & made the process practically perfect in every way!

I have always believed that everything happens for a reason. Selling your home and buying a new one, may be one of the most difficult, and stressful times in your life. Annika Godfrey was like Mary Poppins and came into our lives, making the process practically perfect in every way. Annika met us on a Monday, we staged our home on Tuesday, got a professional photographer to take photos on Wednesday, listed our condo on Thursday, got an offer on Friday, did an open house on Saturday, and we accepted an offer that following Monday. She guided us through the grueling journey of escrow, inspections, appraisals, and the countless documents we had to review and sign. She even always knew exactly what to say to keep us calm and focused on the big picture of getting our forever home. Annika Godfrey and her fantastic team did all these things using her 20 plus years of experience. Thank you to Annika and the whole team for our beautiful dream home.

...then we met Annika Godfrey, who put the fun back into finding our dream home!

Our dream home for our family needed to have a craftsman look, a spacious backyard, walking distance to great schools, and all for the right price.  My wife and I aggressively searched for our dream home for an entire year.  House after house, agent after agent, and disappointment after disappointment, my wife and I were tired, frustrated, and ready to quit; then we met Annika Godfrey, who put the fun back into finding our dream home.

From the start, we could feel Annika's awesome energy and her positivity was contagious.  Soon after meeting Annika we made an offer on our dream home.  What's great about Annika is that she is not only a real estate agent; Annika has an entire team of real estate professionals at her disposal who work synergistically to get the deal done.  She has a loan officer, an appraiser, a home inspector, the escrow team, a mobile notary and then some.  Not only did Annika have a strong team of experienced professionals, who were all accessible, efficient, and knowledgeable they worked together harmoniously, which made our home buying process seem effortless and stress free.

Looking back at our home buying experience, I honestly could say that we wouldn't have been able to find this home, nor would we have been able to close on this home if not for Annika representing us as buyers.  Annika's professionalism, experience, and passion are the reasons why she is an amazing agent to have on your side.  If you are looking for a dream home, to sell your home, or for any real estate needs I would strongly recommend Annika Godfrey.

Annika made sure we got our house and kept me calm throughout the process

My husband and I really appreciate everything Annika did for us in finding and securing our home in Orange, CA.  This is a tough market to buy in and you need the right agent to get the deal done.  Annika made sure we got our house and kept me calm throughout the process.  I recommend her to all my friends and family and we will definitely have her represent us again in the future!

You will not find a better realtor!

You will not find a better realtor! We listed with another realtor originally and didn't have results for months! Once we listed with Annika we got an offer on the first day at top dollar!! Closed in one month!! She works hard and smart!!! She also helped us with the home we were buying... The home we bought needed $20,000.00 worth of termite work!!! She got the sellers to pay for repairs!! Annika is amazing!!

If you don't use Annika you are REALLY missing out

If you don't use Annika you are really missing out.  When you work with Annika you aren't working with "an agent", rather you are working with a friend, an advocate and a professional. She guided us trough our selling process while allowing us to make decisions that were in our best interests.  She truly understands what YOUR needs are, works with you and for you to make buying or selling a home ENJOYABLE!!!  If you want to get the best real estate experience Annika will work day and night to make that happen.

Annika is the best. She works hard to understand what is important for her clients and then goes to bat for them. Annika has helped us find and buy our last two homes and we were impressed with how diligent she was in finding the right matches for us. Annika found our first home for us the same day it went on the market. She has “no fear” when it comes to advocating for her clients and she helped us get the best deal possible. - Mark Stirrat


33 Playa, Aliso Viejo

Working with Annika was a complete breeze. She was so dedicated and easy to work with! When I first contacted her, we had less than two months left on our short-term lease and were anxious to purchase a home before our lease was up. Though I was skeptical, she was confident that we could find a place and close the deal within that time frame. With her help and guidance, we did. Throughout the process, she was respectful of our price range, very quickly understood our needs and desires, and kept everything on track. I would wholeheartedly and gladly recommend her to family and friends. We are loving our home! Thank you, again, for your hard work in making this happen for us. - Deborah Mancuso

Dear Annika,
Thank you so much for always having my back with everything real estate related and just in general.
This is an update letter because I want all of your future and potential clients to know who you are
and what you did for me and my family. I know I wrote a great testimonial that I hope has helped your
potential clients in making the right decision by hiring you. But I want to thank you dearly for what you
did for Kathy and I during our Florida new builder purchase.
After Annika successfully sold several of my homes over the years, the last one on 1008 W. Trinity,
which I will add she successfully negotiated while she was on her honeymoon. Shortly after she hit a
home run for us on the sale of that home, we were moving across the country to Florida. She set us
up with contacts there, but we decided to go for a new home build. The home prices were so great
compared to what we could get in OC, that we decided to go for it.
Two days before my wife was due with our first child, I called Annika in a panic. The builder was saying
I had to bring in an additional $25,000 because the house didn’t appraise. She asked me questions,
she got on the phone with the sales girl, she asked her questions and then she struck. She was able
to in a 24 hour period, negotiate down the purchase price on my new build and help me not have a
heart attack in the process. My wife was literally in labor during this process, and frankly I was terrified.
Annika shortly after, sent my wife and I a lovely blanket with our son’s name and birthdate knitted on
the top of blanket.
Annika didn’t get paid for helping me with the negotiation on my home, but she took the time to help
guide me because she is an absolute pro, that truly cares. She always does the right thing regardless
of the outcome for herself. I am forever grateful!
Sincerely,
Trevor Buracchio


Trynalee Barton

As a single woman (50+) purchasing a home on her own, I was somewhat intimidated by the process. Thank goodness for Annika. She listened to me, listened to what I was looking for, respected my price range and found me the perfect home. She guided me through the entire process, including helping me find a lender. She was there with me every step of the way, all the while she being 8 months pregnant. She gave me the perfect home and an extremely stress free and enjoyable experience. I would recommend Annika to anyone looking to purchase a home.

There is no job too big or too small for Annika Godfrey. She will bust her butt for you! As a first time buyer I was unfamiliar with everything. Annika recommended I speak with her lender at JMJ Financial. They too, proved to be an amazing asset during this process.
Annika and Beth held my hand the whole way. There was never a time they didn’t answer my calls.
I tried using another agent before only to have a couple different offers slip through the cracks. Annika is relentless when it comes to closing! I had my keys in under 3 weeks!
Thank you so much Annika, Beth and the rest of the team. You guys rock! Let’s do it again in about 5 years!

Annika was a godsend! I had recently divorced, had sold the family home and was renting a room from someone who goes to my church, when my daughter, who was attending college in NY, was diagnosed with cancer. I needed to find and buy a house fast, then move in and make it into a comfy home so my daughter would have a warm, loving home while she went through chemo and radiation. We looked at 12-14 homes each day! Annika didn't want to sell me any old house just to make a quick sale. She truly wanted to find the perfect home for me. She was caring, compassionate, and had a great sense of humor, all of which I appreciated!!! She was a pleasure to work with! She also was an excellent communicator and negotiator. I felt very confidant having her represent me in the transaction. She professionally handled the details so the transaction would be as stressless as possible. She knows the real estate business! 20 day escrow!
I have been in my new home for almost 9 months and I LOVE it!!! It is perfect for me! Thank you Annika!
(And my daughter is now cancer free!)
