About Geoff Tackney

Geoff was born and raised in Long Beach, CA and truly embodies the Southern California lifestyle. He incorporates over a decade or real estate and construction experience with a sense of integrity and urgency to ensure his clients feel completely cared for throughout every transaction.

Geoff initially began his real estate career working exclusively with investors, representing them on the purchase and sale of homes being “flipped”. He then obtained his General Contractors license in order to have an all-encompassing business model. Geoff has personally been involved in the flipping of over 200 homes and over 425 transactions throughout his real estate career. In 2005, Geoff established himself as the Broker and Owner of GMT Real Estate, which has quickly grown to be a dominant Real Estate Brokerage in the Garden Grove community.

Geoff’s mark of distinction is that he truly believes in being of service to his community first and foremost. You can find Geoff all around the community volunteering as the Cub Scout Den Dad, AYSO Soccer Coach, and many other positions. If you ever need a position filled, ask Geoff! (He can’t say no!)


I’m so happy to recommend the team of Jen and Geoff. They are very professional and knowledgeable when it comes to all things related to the real estate business. I always tell my friends to trust the advice of your agent; they will not steer you wrong. Team Tackney knew the market well and gave excellent advice regarding pricing and prepping my home for sale. They predicted exactly what happened, which was multiple offers and a final offer 32k above asking. Every phase went smoothly, right to the close of escrow. The office was always quick to respond with any questions. Please consider this team with your real estate needs, you will not be sorry!

2/25/2018  The Tackney’s are a great couple and a great team, that I witnessed grow from a two person team into a whole cog work of efficient and knowledgeable agents and administrators in just a matter of years.

Three years ago, I thought I would never find a home for my family in a desirable neighborhood.  Everything was out of my current price range, and it seemed to be getting more difficult with each passing day.  I had not yet been working with the Tackney’s when they heard, through their vast network, what I was looking for and found it before it even hit the market. I was skeptical when I first got the call, but with the inventory as tight as it was, my wife and I decided to meet with the Tackney’s and take look at what they had to show. Within a five minute tour, we knew it was exactly what we had been looking for and could not believe they had found our ideal house in our price range without ever having met. I found out later, that this was possible, because of the immense amount of time they put into meeting and knowing the community they work in. The Tackney’s made the purchase process smooth and easy, in fact I almost had no questions or concerns, because they always seemed to be addressed before I could ask.  Then when escrow was over, the Tackney’s didn’t go away.  They offered their help in designing and finding the right contractors to make the house a perfect place to live.

Three years later, my employment moved me out of the area, and needless to say, the Tackney’s were the first people I called. This time around, armed with a much larger network and a small army of knowledgable associates, the Tackney’s had my house sold within the first two open houses at a price beyond what I expected and a process that went as smooth as the first one.

If you are looking to buy or sell a house, especially in the West Garden Grove area, the Tackney’s are the people to hire. I spent a lot of time with other Realtors and was always worried about the process; with the Tackney’s I was able to sit back in the passenger seat and let them take care of the rest.  And, with Stefanie Silver at their side, handling your documents, you will not have a smoother transaction and escrow.

Thanks for all you guys have done!

Michael helped me with my first home buying purchase. He was very knowledgeable of the area in which I bought a Condo. He was very flexible with viewing places in the beginning of my home search. He is personable and honest and will give you his outlook on what makes a property a good deal or not. He has lots of contacts that can help you with any repairs or fixes for the property that you purchase. When you finally have your choice on the home you want, he moves quick and helps you with all that you need to do to get the home you want.

The Tackney Team helped make the process of selling my home so flawless. I followed their expert advice from beginning to end and my home sold quickly with multiple offers above asking price. This couple really knows the real estate business very well, has a wonderful staff, and puts forth a  professional marketing strategy. The professional photographer and window cleaners were a great bonus. I’m so happy I hired them and I highly recommend them.
Being familiar with real estate but not the area, we looked for the right match. Because Jenni was a member of Giveback Homes, an organization we support it was a good starting place. Jenni and her broker/owner Geoff Tackney gave a professional presentation that covered the area, their sales  strategy, their marketing approach and compared an “as is” sale, to a renovated/updated sale and the associated sales prices. We were provided with a comprehensive list of suggested repairs and replacements as well as recommended contractors. After freshening up the property the first open houses were scheduled. After the weekend there were 5 offers. By Wednesday there were 7, with 3 at asking price or above. Jenni was always responsive and even helped stage the house for sale. I would highly recommend her and her team, and am thankful for all the help they extended during the process.

Jen & Geoff are locals who live & work in the West Garden Grove area which is only one of the reasons we chose them to represent us when we decided to sell our house. They were personable, attentive, timely & professional. They marketed our house & got us a lot of exposure which led to a quick  sale. We definitely recommend them – selling or buying a home can be a stressful process but Jen & Geoff helped make it as easy & seamless as possible


Team Tackney has been awesome through our search for the past several years of looking for our beautiful home. We’ve been following them through most of the open houses in West Grove..Jen & Geoff knew exactly what our preferences were in a house we were in search for…down to the last detail.   They devoted a lot of their time with us through the search over the years, during our purchase and during the sale of our home. They are truly “The Experts” as realtors in our area. They are highly involved with our community and are extremely knowledgeable with their work. They have an awesome team that is readily available. Everything was electronic, which made the transactions much easier & convenient. They were there for us 24/7…hands down…Jen & Geoff are the BEST of the West Grove area. They really work here, live here and give here! We highly recommend Team Tackney!!!
