Annika Godfrey | Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage | CA DRE # 01322358

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!

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 come into our lives and made 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!!

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

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

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!)
