a home can be both an exciting and scary experience, especially for
first time buyers like us.
Cal Giaimo took the "scary" out
of the biggest and most important purchase of our lives. We can say
with all honesty and complete sincerity that if you are reading this
letter of recommendation then you have already found the best realtor
in the business. Even though Cal is a major
realtor in the Santa Cruz and greater Monterey Bay area, he made us
feel that we were his most important clients. He listened when we
described the type of house, location, and price range we wanted, and
was right on target with the listings. He was always available and
worked around our schedule....We feel that Cal genuinely cared that
the entire process would be a smooth and joyous experience for us, and
it was. We highly recommend Cal Giaimo as a realtor. If you have any
questions please contact us."

He spent quite a bit of time getting to know our plans, both
present and future, to advise us on our options.

"We have been vacationing in Aptos for many years. It was
always the dream of our entire family to some day buy our own home.
For the past several years, we would visit open houses whenever we
were in the area. Several years ago, we finally decided that
since we lived out of the area, we'd best find a real estate person to
help us in our search. Most of the real estate people we
contacted said they would look for us, and we never heard from them
again. Then last summer, we finally went
to see an open house...It just happened to be a listing of Cal's.
Although we weren't interested in that particular property, Cal told
us about other possibilities. He took us to see several
properties, and when it was time for us to return to Sacramento, Cal
told us he would continue looking for the right piece of property for
us. Even though nothing suitable
appeared on the market immediately, Cal kept in contact with us.
Then, as soon as he did spot a possibility, he would make it a
priority to get us down to see it...When for some reason we didn't go
on the property, he never gave up on us. Then, finally, in March of this
year, Cal found us our beach house, but he didn't stop there. He
helped us in every possible way to make sure the sale went through as
smoothly and as quickly as possible.
We would recommend Cal for
whatever real estate needs you might have. He has great
listening skills, he is a man of his word, and he will not give up
until he has fulfilled his promises."
George & Joanne, Sacramento, CA.
am sending you this letter as a token of our appreciation for your
assistance in finding our 'dream house'. It was a long, arduous
process and often quite discouraging. Your ability to use
computer technology to our benefit was very impressive to say the
least. ...You never pressured us in any way, but kept producing
possible alternative choices. Then after we finally found 'the
house', it had the potential to be the worst situation possible: a conservatorship. ...Through it all, you were an inspiration to
us and kept us focused on the goal. No doubt, if it weren't for
you we would have abandoned the effort. We are very happy in our new
home. I was walking through it one week after moving in, paused
for a moment and thought 'this really feels like HOME'. My
sincere thanks for all you have done."
Barry, Aptos, CA.
am pleased to be writing this recommendation for the realty services
of Cal Giaimo. I worked with Cal on the purchase of a home in
Cal's persistence and attention to detail were
invaluable throughout the searching and purchasing process. He
identified multiple appropriate properties quickly at the start of my
search. He negotiated strongly and patiently on my behalf; his
experience and knowledge were instrumental in developing clear and
beneficial terms and contract statements. His attention to
detail in writing and rewriting statements resulted in faster
resolution of subsequent problems. Cal scheduled all inspections
quickly with knowledgeable and reputable sources. He provided
sound perspectives that led to good decision making on my part. Cal's experience,
thoroughness and patience gave me confidence that I was making a good
investment and purchasing decision. I am pleased to recommend
Dana, Santa Cruz, CA.
I want you to know how much I appreciated your effort in selling my home in Aptos,
You went far beyond your role as an real estate agent, even
so far as watering and cutting my lawn while I sat
here in Nevada. You were particular to a fault, and
I didn't have your patience, that's for sure! Thank you
again for a job well done!"
Lou, Mesquite, Nevada
and I appreciated so much your support, diligence, and patience with
us in our different stages of looking for a home in Santa Cruz.
You were so good in keeping us well informed on what was going on in
the market and educating us on the different areas of Santa Cruz.
Through that process you got to know us and had the patience to allow
us to develop a clearer idea of really where and what we wanted. Once you found the house
that fit our needs, you were so good at informing us on the best way
to present an offer that would give us the best chance at getting the
house in a very difficult market of potential price bidding. As
a result, we were able to get the house we wanted. We love our lifestyle in
Santa Cruz and are so grateful to you, Cal, because we truly believe
if it wasn't for you, we may not have made it to Santa Cruz at all.
Thank you again!"
Ron and Naomi, Santa Cruz
and I wish to take this opportunity to thank you so much for the extraordinary
effort you extended in selling our property. Specifically, we wish to
thank you for the following: 1) The amount of your time spent in advertising our property.
2) The protection you extended to us relative to buyer and seller separation to
prevent misunderstandings. 3) Your efforts in acting on our behalf in communicating with the County of
Santa Cruz. 4) Your never-ending desire to comply with the law governing the sale of real
estate. 5) Your insistence that we have copies of all written material connected with
the sale of our property. 6) Your efforts to ensure that the buyer and seller are both aware of their
obligations. Mr. Giaimo, we would not hesitate to do business with you in the future and
further recommend you and your company to our friends. In closing, we want you to know that we appreciated your gentlemanly demeanor
throughout our relationship in the sale of our property and wish you continued
success with your company."

Federal and state fair
housing laws were put into effect to create an even playing field for
homebuyers in all areas of a real estate transaction. These laws
prohibit discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, disability,
familial status, and national origin. The Civil Rights Act of 1866
prohibits all racial discrimination in the sale or rental of property.
The Fair Housing Act of 1968 makes fair housing a national policy. It
prohibits discrimination in the sale, lease or rental of housing, or
making housing otherwise unavailable because of race, color, religion,
sex, disability, familial status or national origin. Title III of the
Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination against persons
with disabilities in commercial facilities and places of public
accommodation. The Equal Credit Opportunity Act makes it unlawful to
discriminate against anyone on a credit application due to race, color,
religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age or because all or
part of an applicant's income comes from any public assistance program.
The home seller, the home seeker, and the real estate professional all
have rights and responsibilities under the law. Under the law, a home
seller or landlord cannot establish discriminatory terms or conditions
in the purchase or rental; deny that housing is available or advertise
that the property is available only to persons of a certain race, color,
religion, sex, disability, familial status, or national origin. Agents
in a real estate transaction may not discriminate on the basis of race,
color, religion, sex, disability, familial status or national origin.
They also may not follow such instructions from a home seller or
landlord. Discrimination complaints about housing may be filed with the
