Buying a house is a much easier process with his experience and efforts!
I am giving a strong recommendation for Big Dog Realty and Gerry Villars, for his extraordinary support of my recent home purchase in Laguna Hills. Gerry and I spoke via phone for our initial discussions and he presented me with a little homework on what I felt was most important in my home purchase. I felt this was a great first step to save both him and me time, in my housing search. Once we reviewed my needs, almost immediately Gerry began sending me homes that fit my criteria. The following week we began viewing homes and on the very first day, I found the home that I was very interested in purchasing. I had purchased homes in Michigan numerous times, but never in California with so much extra documentation needed. Thankfully Gerry worked tirelessly to assist me thru the process and went above and beyond my expectation of daily touch points, updating me on progress of my home purchase. I am very fortunate to have had Gerry’s assistance in my home search; it certainly was a much easier process with his experience and efforts on my behalf. Thank you Gerry and Big Dog Realty!

You know the Irvine area and you shared that information with us
You were very knowledgeable regarding the Irvine area and we enjoyed learning about different aspects of Irvine (we’ve lived here over 8+ years and learned a ton of things while riding with you). I also appreciated the fact that you know specific details of the property before showing it to us. Gerry, you did a wonderful job finding us the perfect place. What sets you apart from other brokers is that you are very patient, kind and informative during the entire process. I have already given your name to my friends & colleagues who will no doubt appreciate your services like we did.

Big Dog ROCKS!
Over the years we’ve had some pretty bad experiences with Realtor’s and property management. My last Realtor didn’t even bother to show up half the time, and when we finally found a place, she didn’t show up for walk through or any other closing activity.. We ran into Gerry as the listing agent for the last place we rented over a year ago and he was such a pleasure to deal with we decided to use him during our next housing search. He did not disappoint. Gerry is everything you’d wish for in a Realtor. Prompt, courteous, diligent, and unwavering in his willingness to help locate and show rentals that fit our requirements. His communication is A+ and he was always willing to accommodate last minute requests and the semi-frequent “mind-change”. We can honestly say we are now life long customers. I do not hesitate to recommend Big Dog and Gerry to any family, friends, or colleagues. He’s simply outstanding and the gold standard that all Realtor’s should strive to meet.

Exactly what we were looking for
When we moved here we had a couple of realtors recommended that were not very helpful. We met Gerry on a trip and discussed our needs for a home in the Orange County area. Within days Gerry had homes to show us with exactly what we were looking for. We were able to find a neighborhood we really liked and Gerry took the time to scour that area for homes. At the time the real estate market was very active and many homes were going well above asking price, but again with Gerry's dedication to finding us the right home he found us one that accepted asking price. I highly recommend Gerry to find and close your new home. His customer service is second to none.
