Annika has dedicated the last ten years of her life to growing Coldwell Banker top teams in Orange County. She has personally generated over two billion dollars in residential listings and sales for those teams and built a reputation of results and trust in the industry.
She founded Godfrey Group with Coldwell Banker to take her legendary customer service to the next level. Her mission is to foster beautiful relationships, producing superior results, and enhancing the lives of others through real estate prosperity and pride of home ownership.
Clients benefit from Annika’s vast experience in all aspects of real estate. Annika Godfrey began her real estate career in Orange County California in 1998. She was born and raised in the great city of Laguna Hills and graduated in 1991 from the home of the Hawks. After receiving her B.F.A. from Kent State University in Ohio, Annika, a native Californian with Swedish decent, came back to the OC offering a diverse background in culture, vision and creativity. From 1998-2005 she worked independently for what she likes to refer as a “mom and pop shop” real estate firm. Her background there included real estate finance, sales and appraisal. They instilled core ethics and values that she still utilizes in her real estate practices today, over seventeen years later.
Building a powerful Team to deliver a superior Client experience has always been Annika’s key to success. In 2005, she was part of a top residential real estate team with whom she helped grow their business to the #1 team in units sold for all of Orange County. She tirelessly co-created systems, sets and routines that would launch that team into unparalleled status among its peers and fellow professionals.
Luxury Real Estate became part of Annika’s focus in 2010, when she joined forces with the new up and coming #1 Team for Coldwell Banker in Newport Beach. She generated business that led to successful beginnings for that group in the communities of Emerald Bay in Laguna Beach, Ocean Ranch/Bear Brand in Laguna Niguel, Ritz Cove in Dana Point, Nellie Gail in Laguna Hills, Coto de Caza, Huntington Harbor, San Clemente and several other fabulous cities and communities throughout the Orange County area.
She is currently growing her own team in Coldwell Banker with a passion to set the industry standard in service and results. Her greatest joys in life are to serve others, delight in her loving family, and to grow her business and team.
"Once again Annika and her team knocked it out of the park! Our home sold in less than 48 hrs with multiple offers!!! They went above and beyond to prepare and market our home. Everything they do is top notch. They only work with talented photographers and video crews to get expectional images. We truly believe the extra steps they took enabled us to have a fast and smooth sales process resulting in top dollar - the highest sale ever in our community! We couldn't be happier! We are so grateful for Annika and her entire team!"

"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."

"We interviewed 3 agents for the sale of our parent’s home. Annika Godfrey has a plan and if you follow her plan you will see results. For this reason we picked her and we want others to have the sam positive experience of working with her. She is a great negotiator finding the expert repairmen and held the escrow together when an issue arose. She and her team offer such a friendly, efficient and professional package. I highly recommend this group, they have the knowledge and expertise you need to accomplish the results."

"Annika is amazing and a true pro in every way. She is strategic, super smart and sophisticated. We trusted and followed Annika’s recommended “Plan” and she and her Team absolutely delivered beyond our expectations. We have dealt with many realtors over the years in CA and TX and Annika knows how to position a home to sell quickly and achieve record setting pricing. What really sets Annika apart is her authentic ability to create memorable experiences and deep meaningful relationships with her clients."

"RED ALERT! Annika and her team are AMAZING! Complete professionals that walked us through the process of selling our home from beginning to end. From the beginning I had full confidence in her based on a close friend who got over asking price for her home. My husband was a little more skeptical. She was always available to answer any questions we had and when our spirits would get low Annika, her sister Kristina, and the rest of the Godfrey Group team would always pick us up.
Annika’s plan was spot on from the very beginning and we did everything she said including little fixes, painting, and staging and WOW did it paid off tenfold. We literally have a house 6 houses away from us that sold five months ago. We have the same exact model and lot. Now let me say that we do have a view and some nice upgrades but she literally got us 32% more than the comp 6 houses away! Let’s just say that it’s quite a good chunk of money 🙂 All of the neighbors jaws dropped and are ecstatic that the value of the neighborhood has gone up. Needless to say my husband is now a full believer and we will NEVER do another real estate transaction WITHOUT Annika. I have never had a better experience with anyone in this industry let alone any other industry. In, fact I have never had a better experience with another human in general! If she was a rock star she would be the Bono of real estate!
I am so incredibly grateful we have her and we look forward to doing more business with Annika and her team in the future. She and her sister Kristina are like family to us! So if you want someone to crush it out of the park for you choose Annika Godfrey and the Godfrey Group. And remember TAKE HER ADVICE! Whatever she tells you to do do it and you will not be disappointed!"
