Sophie McLean was invaluable to us when we were looking for the right property to meet our intricate set of requirements. She very quickly got a handle on our likes and dislikes and came up with a range of suitable properties for us to choose from. Once we'd shortlisted the available options, she mapped out a logical route and liaised with all of the various realtors / owners to make sure that we had an efficient and successful day of back to back viewings. She found our "perfect fit" and everything went very smoothly from there on, we moved in very soon after with no hiccups whatsoever. We have no hesitations in recommending Sophie as an excellent realtor who has first-class people skills and a knack of rapidly understanding people's needs.
I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Tom. I was in a competitive bidding situation (12 offers!) and Tom counseled me every step of the way. I truly believe that I wouldn't own my dream home without the guidance and wisdom of Rare Properties. Their service was comprehensive and first rate -- they set all the appointments for all the inspections and made everything easy and straightforward. Once my offer was accepted, Tom also introduced me to an amazing contractor. It was an A+ experience.
Sophie is a great agent. She took the time to learn what I wanted and needed in my new home. She knew exactly what I was looking for and did a fabulous job of screening out the houses so that I only visited the houses that met my criteria. Sophie provided me with such personal attention that I truly felt as if I were her only client during my 9-month search for my home. I highly recommend Sophie.
My experience with Catherine McGinnis from Keller Williams couldn’t have been better. She helped me look for a multifamily property in LA for a good 6 months. Throughout this time, she made dozens of offers on my behalf, pulled even more comps, and went out of her way to look at properties with me. And once we had an accepted offer on the property I ended up purchasing, Catherine was willing to make the over 80-mile round-trip from her office in Beverly Hills to the outskirts of Santa Clarita on multiple occasions to make sure that the transaction was proceeding smoothly. And even after the property closed, Catherine assisted me in resolving a numerical discrepancy with the seller in her typical timely fashion. Working with Catherine was the completely opposite of working with my old, supposedly “investor-friendly” agent who will go unnamed. Unfortunately, he was always a little too busy for me. Something as simple as pulling comps could take him a few days, which is simply unacceptable in a fast-turning market like Los Angeles. Catherine was not like that; she was very responsive and made the entire property-buying experience smooth as can be, and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to purchase property in the LA area.
Masha K made this deal happen. I was fighting other all cash offers (which I was not) and a very competitive purchasing landscape. Masha not only got the deal out from under other offers, but she orchestrated the negotiations to my benefit. The escrow company said many times that they had no idea how I got the deal, and I consistently told them that it was the knowledge, experience and skill of my agent. Throughout the escrow process, Masha kept me informed and comfortable every step of the way, as this was my first home purchase. I would more than recommend her to anyone that wants to purchase a home.
Amazing to work with - super knowledgeable and just an overall GREAT experience!!! Masha was always on time to every meeting and super attentive!!! I would recommend working with Masha as I certainly plan on doing so for future purchases and sales!!!
Masha was a dream to work with. Very professional, responded immediately and very attentive. She was always on time. Paperwork was hassle free. I would highly recommend her.
We were first time home buyers and had no idea what to expect. Masha was there every step of the way to help use find our dream home! She constantly went above and beyond and made buying a home a breeze. She is amazingly friendly, reliable, and fought to get us a great deal. Thanks Masha for an wonderful experience!!
A few months ago I decided to buy my first home here in LA and I soon realized what a daunting journey that can be. That said, having Micah by my side to guide me through the process made all the difference. From day one he made an effort to get to know me and understand exactly what I was looking for, helping me get the perfect home in only a couple months. He was flexible, dedicated, efficient and so patient! I felt I could trust him and rely on him 100% for everything –I can't recommend him enough as an agent. Thanks again, Micah!
Micah was AMAZING throughout the entire process of buying my home. He was patient, diligent, super thoughtful, and made the typically daunting, stressful experience of buying much more enjoyable and seamless to work through. I will absolutely be working with him again and would recommend him to any of my friends and family. Thank you, Micah!!!
My husband and I decided to buy a house in August of last year. As first time buyers we expected the process to be smooth but it's surprising how much there is to do before getting an offer accepted and finally closing. Micah was amazing at preparing us for the process and guiding us through each step. I appreciated how open he was when we just met to showing us as many houses as we wanted to see (even though we had yet to be pre-approved and know how much we could afford) - he genuinely wanted to learn of our must haves/deal breakers and encouraged us to see what was on the market in all the areas we liked. When it came time to making offers, I respected how honest he is - he ultimately does what his clients want/decide but he recommended not putting more than one offer out at a time so as not to mess with the sellers/listing agents. Something that we noticed, when heading to open houses by ourselves, is how highly listing agents who knew Micah spoke of him. This is something invaluable when it comes time for the listing agent to advise their clients what offer to accept. Micah is business minded but also extremely creative with a background in architecture. His personality and brains were the perfect match for us, as my husband is a numbers man and I was much more interested in picking his brain about remodel ideas. We can't say enough about Micah's availability (no matter the time of day), his professionalism or his problem-solving attitude. Ultimately, for most people, the house-searching period is a rather long one. If you can find someone genuine, who is knowledgeable in real estate yet not pushy, and whose company you can enjoy, you have hit the jackpot.
We can not say enough about Micah! He was incredible through out the entire process. He really made it a point to talk us through each step and update us with everything as it came in! We are so excited about our new home and owe Micah so much gratitude for helping us! We highly recommend Micah to anyone looking for a new home ESPECIALLY first time home buyers!
I have never worked with a real estate agent like Masha before. She listened to what our needs were, came up with a list of homes to see all of which were on the mark, helped us with the best offer, and arranged all the inspections. The actual house hunting was finished in one week, the offer, inspections, mortgage, closing, etc was completed in a month, all of which including finding contractors, for the work to be done were all organized and facilitated by Masha. This was the easiest house buying experience I had thanks to Masha. I would highly recommend Masha to anyone who wants things done well and fast.
We loved working with Masha! She helped us finding perfect house ! Mash is really nice and professional! She always listen all our concerns, which is so important! She is the best agent in LA! Definitely recommend her! Five start agent !
Monet Berger is an excellent Broker!! She is very knowledgeable and very pleasant to work with. She sold my Condo @ the very first showing!!! Highly recommend her!!!
Masha is simply AMAZING!! We are currently working together on finding my second property, and I am completely satisfied with what she brings to the table. She is brilliant, attentive, and definitely goes to bat for her clients. Any style, location, price range, etc. she kills it! I can't wait to get into this next stage of my life adventure! Thanks, Masha!!
When I encountered real estate broker Colby Brown, I was very skeptical about his age. After talking with him, my doubts disappeared. I found him to be a mature, knowledgeable, well-informed agent who was attuned to the circumstances about selling my house and purchasing a new home. After working with premier brokers in Los Angeles on previous sales of my homes, some of whom were twice his age, Colby demonstrated an exceptional ability to market and sell my home. He expertly helped to stage it so that it had maximum appeal to buyers. He orchestrated a record-breaking open house, and four days later, I received multiple offers, and my house was sold above the asking price. Regarding the purchase of my new home, Colby actually found the real estate property for me, astutely counseled me on when to make an offer, and negotiated at the highest level with a difficult, experienced seller. Colby will hustle for you. He will respond to your various needs and your taste. Above all, you will find him to be personable, charming, and a pleasure to work with.
Thank you realtor extraordinaire Monet Berger! 'They' say never give your listing to a friend. I say, 'if they're a good friend, they'll go the extra mile.' Monet went all the way, full asking price!
I met Monet at a property she had listed for sale about two months ago.It was not to our liking and I explained to her what the shortcomings were and what I wanted. Unlike other agents she listened carefully and a week later contacted me about an off market listing that she thought was a good match. I flew back from SF based on her description and photos and toured the property. It was perfect and I was surprised how quickly she found what I wanted and how it met all of my criteria. We negotiated a price that ended up exactly at where she thought it would sell so she accurately judged the seller and their motivation. In the course of the transaction issues arose that she handled very well without any stress. I am very pleased with our purchase and how efficiently it concluded. I have been in the real estate industry for 35 years and from experience can say that agents like her are rare. I have no hesitation to recommend her to anyone.
Stephen has helped through the whole process. While viewing the property, Stephen asked additional questions about the property that I never would have thought to ask at the time. The answers of those questions truly helped solidify the bid on the property. He gave his professional opinion when asked and pursued negotiations in the best interests of his client. Stephen also helped with the process with the inspection reports and making sure everything was corrected before the closing, in terms of the seller fixing/replacing anything or applying a credit on the purchase price. I'm sure I'm missing a lot of other items that Stephen did during this process, but these were the most important takeaways from this experience. Nevertheless, I fully recommend using Stephen, especially for his complete dedication to his clients and his speedy response time to any questions or concerns. I will be using him in the future.
