Irvine Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

This is our 3rd real estate transaction with Janice Konkol.

She has an excellent knowledge of the Irvine real estate market. We were confident in her recommendations on preparing and pricing our home for sale. She staged the home, and her photographer did an excellent job with the pictures. The house looked so nice on-line we had over 16 showings in the first weekend, multiple offers, and sold the house within 2 weeks, without holding an open house.

I worked with Nancy couple times & both experiences were exceptional!

 She listened and paid attention to our needs and found us a home! Nancy is driven and very passionate about what she does but certainly not pushy. I would recommend her to anyone who's serious about buying a house.

Roya S.

It was wonderful working with Max.

He made the process stress free and made sure we were fully informed every step of the way so that we could make confident and smart choices. He was readily available and responded promptly. He was polite and respectful not only to us but to anyone we interacted with. I always felt like I was in good hands and that I could fully trust his expertise. He was also very forthright when it came to a place we really loved. I really appreciated his passion, to fight as hard as he could to put us in a favorable light with the seller. Overall I'd work with him again and would recommend him as a realtor

Dean helped my wife and I look for our first home in the OC area (Irvine, Lake Forest, Laguna Niguel, etc.

). If you are looking for someone who will carefully listen to your wants, needs, like and dislikes and who truly "internalises" it and prioritises it -- Dean is your guy. We were extremely impressed by the rigor of his due diligence (he spent more than 2 hours with us on a Sunday night), his commitment (he would make himself available any time we said we free for a house viewing) and his easy personality. Finding a house is an intimidating process and we definitely felt like we had someone we could trust who could guide us through the journey. I would recommend Dean to anyone in a heartbeat.

Working with Eman Aly Ismail at First Team was an absolutely wonderful experience.

She well exceeded my expectations. Eman Aly Ismail was professional, efficient, and knowledgeable. Most importantly, she made us feel that she was personally/emotionally invested in our comfort with the lease and entire process. Everything went exactly as she said. It was smooth, seamless and quick. Everything went exactly as she said. It was smooth, seamless and quick. Good Luck Heba Asker

I’ve been dealing with Nancy aynehchi for all my real estate needs since 2009, I have bought and sold many homes through her, I live in Michigan and know I can trust her 100%.

As a matter of fact I bought my last investment property without seeing it, if she approves, I approve. She is the best negotiator I have met in my entire life. Very honest and trust worthy. I enjoy talking to her about real estate, she is very knowledgeable. I highly recommend working with her. Doctor Majid P.

Gaylene’s guidance and expertise was instrumental in getting us top dollar when we sold our home, and it only took two weeks to get it sold!

Her excellent negotiating skills got us well over our asking price. We can’t recommend her highly enough whether you are buying or selling a property - she  will get it done! Gaylene Rice is the ultimate professional when it comes to real estate!

Aremjay Jacobson

Martin and Laura have recently assisted us with the sale of our home.

They are excellent professionals, responsive and knowledgeable; and they are even nicer people. Great marketing! They sold our home fast and above asking price in the middle of the pandemic. The escrow process was seamless, and escrow closed ahead of time. We are very grateful and happy that we hired Martin and Laura. We have known them for several years as they have assisted several family members with the purchase of their own homes. We highly recommend Martin and Laura to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a home. They are the best!

Maria Peña

Nancy is so wonderful - extremely professional & reliable .

I told her what I needed months before and she kept an eye out for exactly what I needed for me and my children before it even was advertised. This helped both me and the landlord. She is HIGHLY responsive which was incredibly helpful with my crazy schedule. I would definitely recommend Nancy for either a rental or purchase search.

Kim

I just moved into my beautiful home that is new to me.

I had the best realtors anyone could ever have. Maria Kammaruzzaman and her business partner Becky Lu were amazing. They guided me through the home selection process, selling my home, and a difficult financing process. They were always prompt, courteous and professional. We held multiple open houses. I worked with them for over 6 months. They were always positive and very disciplined about details. They always made feel like I was their only client. You would be lucky to have these ladies help you!

Deborah Kurilchyk

Dean did exactly what he said he would do: sell our house quickly and at a great price.

He was very mindful of our priorities (including minimal staging and showings) throughout the process and could not have been any nicer and more pleasant to work with. Thanks Dean!

Matthew McCarey

Vickie has helped us with multiple transactions.

She is honest, reliable, and has always done what is in our best interest while keeping utmost integrity in the real estate industry.

P Mattar

Dean helped my husband and I with purchasing our first home in Aliso Viejo.

My husband and I recently had our first child and had been looking for our first home over two years. Dean took his time helping us - he never rushed us - and listened to our needs and wants and showed us homes that fit both! Dean has been incredible, organized and thorough from day one and an all around genuine, honest and professional person. We are super happy with our home and feel blessed to have worked with a realtor such as Dean.

Mary C Underwood

My wife met Linda in the park and she decided Linda as our agent to sell the house.

It turned to be a great decision. Linda is very nice and professional. She worked couple days and decorated our house like a new model home. And the most important is that she did sell our house in a few days which I was hoping for. My 2 years little son likes Linda so much and now he call her name every time when we see the signs.I will strongly recommend she!

Lisa and Jeff were great in understanding our family needs and helped facilitate a process with minimal impact to our family.

The home sold quickly and we were very happy with the result.

Jennie A.

Vida is so friendly and knowledgable.

She understood our situation very well and sold our house before even it came on market.Thank you

Layla Hosseini

Mana was a pleasure to work with.

She kept all of her commitments and represented me with integrity keeping my interests at the fore during the purchase of my property. Lisa Gallagher.

We've known Marina for approximately 5 - 5-1/2 years.

We met her when we were looking for someone to lease our home. We leased our home twice during this timeframe and both tenants were terrific. We never had any problems, the tenants were very nice & responsible, and Marina was always there for us if we needed her. We were in contact with Marina during the entire time our home was leased, whether by her great emails or meeting for a friendly lunch. Marina is a very responsible realtor and takes her job seriously, and she is so very friendly and always offers to help us in any way she can. We now have our home up for Lease (or Sale) again, and Marina is the only one we want to handle this for us. We trust her completely. Sincerely, Ann and Donn Bergeman

Donn & Ann Bergeman

Jackie was an absolute lifesaver for me and my family.

She not only helped me sell a house for the first time (which needed work by the way, not a super easy feat) but she gave the confidence to also buy a house of my own and know I was making a good decision. Unlike other agents I have met she is able to share her expertise without condescension and she is always there, day or night, to answer a question or provide feedback. If I didn't love my new house so much I would 1,000% work with her right now to find a different one. Thanks so much Jackie!!!!

Brittany Garcia

Karen helped my wife and I purchase our first home together.

Purchasing a home can be an extremely stressful process and there is no doubt that Karen helped minimize the stress and made sure the transaction went as smooth as possible. She is responsive, patient, well organized, and looks out for her clients interest above all. We purchased our home during the COVID19 shutdowns and Karen problem solved any hurdles we ran into as a result of the shutdown. We are forever grateful for her help and we highly recommend Karen to anyone who needs a real estate agent! Thank you, Luqman and Razan

Luqman Nasouf

My husband and I were looking for a second property in OC but unsure exactly where to buy.

Gaylene patiently took her time to explain the pros and cons of several locations, and helped us narrow down our choices. Then she showed us many properties in each location, so that we were able to make an  informed decision on our new property. Gaylene was professional, accommodating, and a pleasure to work with. We will definitely use her next time we buy or sell a home!!

Jo Sculteure

Dear Adrienne, Today was an amazing day.

You helped me fulfill a dream, I have had for a long time. I knew that when I started my search again, you were the ONLY person, I wanted to work with. I am very lucky to have had you as my agent. Not only did you walk me through the entire process, but you also eased my anxiety. Your professionalism was outstanding. You communicated with me on a regular basis, directed me towards a strong buying team and ALWAYS looked out for my best interests. I am truly grateful to have had you as my guide through this important phase in my life. Thank you, NK

In very few instances can you get an experience in service as great as the one we had with Martin and Laura.

  We moved back to the East Coast from Irvine and left our home literally in their hands.  Through the worst real estate market in decades this wonderful team handled the whole process of renting the property for a few years (difficult tenants included) and then, when we decided, putting the house on the market for sale.  We got excellent advice on when it was right to sell and what  the right price to sell was. As a result we got what we think was the best deal we could wish for.   If you are looking for a trusted real estate advisor, do not hesitate: Martin and Laura will exceed your highest expectations. 

J&J P

Lisa and Jeff were head to head with another realtor team.

 What set them apart was their strong track record of selling in our neighborhood, their availability, open communication and straight honesty.  With their help and guidance, we sold our first home in Irvine within a month.  Hot diggity right?Don't hesitate to choose Lisa and Jeff to help with YOUR house hunt or house selling needs.

Jason and Susan Zwolak were amazing to work with!

Being a first time home-buyer and not having much experience in the field, they literally took my hand and guided me the entire way. I could not have asked for a better experience with Jason and Susan when it came to their professionalism and honesty. Issues arose along the way, out of our control, and they were always prepared and ready to tackle any issues. They were very patient with me and my experience and always had suggestions or advice to guide me in the right direction. Jason and Susan would answer all questions and made themselves available by phone, text or email. I will gladly recommend Jason and Susan to anybody who is looking to buy, or sell, a home

Kathy Palacios

Dear Tracy,   I wanted to thank you so much for assisting me in finding a home for my family during this rough time in my life.

You made it so easy for me, you were so sweet and you responded to all my requests to see property in a timely fashion. If anyone that I know needs assistance in finding their home I will definitely recommend them to you.   Thank you again, I appreciate you! Karin 

Karin Matteo

Linda has assisted me with a number of real estate transactions both as a seller and a buyer.

Her knowledge and research of the respective markets was second to none which enabled us to consistently price the property to the market. On the Sell side, she does a fantastic job of ensuring numerous details are executed upon to get the property ready for sale. Our sales have consistently been quick, efficient, and drawn multiple offers. On the buy side, she does a great job of filtering properties based on need and developing smart offers that are attractive to sellers. Overall, working with Linda has been a top notch experience

Kave N.

It is the third time in the past 4 years that we have hired Murray Falk.

Each and every time, Murray has delivered in every respect. He is knowledgeable, responsive, and fair. His advice on the market and on strategies is always spot on. Murray has a good perception of what is truly important in a deal, but is also paying attention to the details that could make a difference in the long run. He really has the best interest of his customers at heart and is not in the business to make a quick buck. It has always been a pleasure to work with him and we'll definitely use his services again in the future for our real estate brokerage needs.

Norton

Tracy is spectacular.

Aaron D. & Dana Martin

From our 1st meeting on 2/4 to closing which was on 3/15, it took less than 40 days to buy our new home.

Jimmy came prepared a couple of booklets explaining and educating us on whole process including time line of what needs to be done on the 1st meeting. Since this was my first experience buying a house he taught me a lot and helped with any questions I had. It was a pleasure to work with Jimmy to buy our new house and I trust that he will do an equally great job selling our old house.

Charles Kim

Nancy has been so helpful throughout our move-in process!

She is responsive and is quick to help us with any questions we have. It is clear that Nancy cares about her clients and is committed to providing a positive experience!

DEMI M SHOKRY

Janice has the patience to work through very difficult situations.

She sees upcoming problems before they happen and is proactive in avoiding them. Getting my price was a miracle. She does not believe in underpricing for a "quick" sale and is up to the challenge of getting the highest price possible. Very professional and very responsive.

Boone Group LLC

Moving from France to USA, with just no clue of the real estate business in California, Tracy has been a huge help.

Because of a delicate situation to move in, and because everything was new for us, we really were on her back for everything and every single day. She was nice enough to always be available, never underestimate our questions, and thanks to her, we now live in a perfect condo, not so far from work.    

Guewen Reynaud

She is very professional, timely and flexible.

Nancy helped us with getting into a rental and she was a joy to work with. She is extremely honest and tells you all the pros and cons without hesitation. The unit we were looking at was a bit dark so she offered for us to come and see the place at a different time of the day in order to get a better idea of the lighting of the house. When we showed up the next day she turned off all the lights in order for us to truly see how lit the place is. Overall, she’s great and I highly recommend her to those trying to rent, buy or sell a house.

Tina Haghighi

Carole Mancini is the best!

!!! Carole worked so hard to find a home for us, and our fur kids, to live and enjoy. No other Agent would have worked so hard to help us. The Marine Corps motto is Semper Fidelas, "Always Faithful." Semper Fi, Carole! Thank you for all your help!

Rick and Viki Topping

In reading other reviews regarding Martin and Laura, I see I can join the many who truly believe this team is as near perfect as a team can be.

Martin and Laura are amazing, awesome! I can honesty describe them as the best real estate team with whom you will ever work. Their's is a team of integrity, professionalism, kindness, knowledge, thoughtfulness, patience, all with a personal touch. You do feel like you are their priority. My condo was on the market for five months with another real estate agency; several showings but no offers. I was referred to Martin by a friend. I met Martin and Laura shortly after; condo was beautifully staged by Laura, beautiful professional pictures were taken by a professional photographer. The condo was shown once and sold in less than a month from the time I met Martin and Laura. Martin and Laura kept me informed of each step; Laura explained all paperwork that needed signature via a secure online signing system, "easy peasy" it was. Another person, observing the process of this sale who has sold several properties before stated, "I have never been nor seen anyone shepherd a sell like this before". Apparently by all the reviews, Martin and Laura do this with all their clients. Martin personally delivered my escrow papers to me. Laura sent her regards even though she was unable to join him that day. WHAT A WONDERFUL TEAM!!!! I have referred them to a neighbor who is planning to sell her condo. Martin also offered to connect me with a person in AZ with whom I could obtain a BPO on a property I own there. Martin and Laura are the BEST!!!!

Sarah Lawson

"Selling a home can be one of the most stressful and emotional experiences there is, and Lisa and Jeff delivered above and beyond what I could have hoped or expected, on so many levels.

I came to learn that it takes a unique set of skills to manage through the complex process of buying and selling a home. From understanding the pure financial side of the equation, to delicately managing the emotional aspects, to the subtle intangibles of navigating and delivering on the needs of both the buyers and seller, they handled it all seamlessly. Their negotiation skills are remarkable, and their detailed follow up with each and every prospective buyer helped them adapt and react to the need of the buyers. They got my home sold quickly at a price that turned out to be the highest price in my community during an 18 month period." Kelly, Irvine

We selected Lisa and Jeff to help us sell our home in Irvine and think it was the best decision we could have made!

Both Lisa and Jeff were involved in preparing our home for sale, including coordinating painters, stagers and handymen. They went through each room with us and made recommendations that would help us get as much money as possible for our home. They also kept us up to date on the current market conditions as we prepared our home for sale. They did such a great job in getting our home ready for sale. Their first open house weekend had over 150 people and within a week, had received 2 offers! Lisa & Jeff took the time to do a detailed review of the offers with us so that we clearly understood the terms. They were with us throughout the escrow process, keeping us informed with frequent status updates. There was a lot of paperwork that required our signatures, and Lisa and Jeff made sure we understood what we were signing. Because of their negotiation skills, at the end, we got more money for our home than we would have ever thought. They clearly had our best interest in mind. We had bought and sold more than 15 properties in California. Lisa and Jeff are the best. They worked so hard for us and we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone!

Mr. & Mrs. Woo, Irvine

Gaylene assisted me when I sold my townhouse.

I needed to downsize and she helped me through the process with kindness and understanding that change is not easy. Great customer service is difficult to find these days. You will get it with Gaylene.

Mitsuko Fukunaga

Jackie was excellent in her communication with us thruout the process.

Always returned our calls immediately, was available for us when needed and upfront/ honest during the selling and buying process. Very knowledgeable and professional. We will definitely use Jackie in the future and highly  recommend her! 

Roxann Webb

Nancy is simply the best realtor.

She always watches for her client interest.

Paul Sikand

"Jeff and Lisa are fantastic agents.

When we set out to purchase our first home, we needed agents who could not only show us great properties, but would also help us understand the overwhelming process. We assumed it would take months of searching and negotiating to find a home that was right for us, but Jeff and Lisa got us incredible results extremely quickly. They made the experience so easy and enjoyable and we would recommend them to anyone looking to buy a home in Orange County. Their strategic approach and knowledge of the market ensured us that we found a great home at a great price" Jason and Sarah, Tustin Ranch

Cathy - you made the sale of our home so easy.

  We had another agent prior to finding you who tried to sell the home and the difference was amazing.  Your marketing, communication and constant focus on the sale of our home were what got the job done.  Thanks again.

Jim and Barbara G.

Meriam is very knowledgeable of Orange County area and helped us narrow down the areas we were interested in and ultimately find the house that was right for us.

She is a person of class and knows how to match the market inventory in respect to her clients needs. She made sure the entire process went smoothly. We were very happy with our buy by the end of the process. If your process went wrong at some point, we are sure she will be able to handle it to your favor at the end.  Meriam is honest about what will work and why, and how persistent she is in getting what you want; treating your needs like her own. She is also backed by a very professional team who will make sure the whole process end to end is as smooth as possible.  Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $650K in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA.

After a couple of terrible experiences with other agents, we were blessed to meet Jason & Susan Zwolak when they were representing the buyer for the sale of our condo.

  When our agent disappeared in the middle of escrow, they took care of us.  We’ve since purchased another home with their amazing help. They are so prompt, efficient, and on top of everything and had everything done in two days! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them in fact; we already have, to two friends of ours who will be house hunting very soon.

LaMarr Tinnin & Katy Maak

Murray did an excellent job in managing the process and negotiating a great deal.

Very professional and knowledgeble

Nancy, about the 20340 Ivy Hill lane #4, Yorba Linda,CA unit that was damaging the condo unit just below it, you asked me not not talk about the damage with the new homeowners that just purchased the unit, that you will take care of the damage.

So, we went ahead and fixed the damage and now we are getting no response from you about the repair, now that you sold the above unfit. Please take care of this matter - and provide me with a good contact number where we can discuss this offline.

Working with Nancy Aynehchi has been such a pleasure for me.

From the very beginning she was truly interested in what I wanted. It wasn't about a fast sale. Once a decision was made, she continued to stay in touch since acquiring our condo took some time. We live out of state and couldn't be there for so many things. She acted not only as agent but as an interested friend, only too willing to help in any way. When it came to the inspections/walk throughs, she was there as our representative. She was meticulous in every way. Our best interests were always paramount to her. Even when I needed things delivered to our condo during the pandemic, and we were not able to drive out, she made herself available to meet delivery people and window covering installers there, never acting as if it were a problem or inconvenience. She responded quickly to texts and phone calls. She has been so pleasant and just a joy to work with. I highly recommend Nancy to anyone who is considering purchasing a new home or condo. You won't be sorry, just amazed.

Gail Larson

My fiance and I so appreciate Maria's guidance when looking for our first home together.

Being completely new to the process of home-buying, we greatly value Maria's expertise. She takes the time to walk us through every aspect of the process from big picture concerns to smaller details we would have never known to think about. Maria is a great listener and can articulate and speak to our likes and dislikes and our thoughts and concerns. Best of all, she made herself available at all times, which is so very helpful as we have tons of questions, especially when it comes to filling out all the forms coming our way. The process of buying our wonderful home was truly a team effort, and we are so grateful for having Maria!

April B

DEBBIE IS OUR REALTOR FOR LIFE!

  My husband and I have purchased five homes in our seven years of marriage and Debbie has been instrumental in keeping us focused and excited about each new home.  Even when a couple of those properties led us out of state, she provided us referrals in those remote areas so that we were taken care of even if she couldn't physically be there.   Debbie's thoroughness, attention to detail and determination to find us the home that best suited our current needs was impeccable.  We wouldn't turn to anyone else for our real estate needs.   Chris, Kristin, Hannah and Olivia Kildow

Karen is very professional, honest and hard working.

If I ever buy, rent or sell I am using Karen.

Martin Gardner

Murray's attention to detail, thoroughness, quick responsiveness, and expertise in local market is unmatched!

We can always rest assure that Murray has every area of the transaction covered when is working on our side!

Nancy Im

Working with Rosario and Veronica has been a fantastic experience.

They are tremendously knowledgeable about the neighborhoods, the real estate market and the buying/selling process. They are extremely reliable and thorough - no detail or deadline was ever dropped or missed. Most important, when faced with waffling, impatience, delusions of grandeur and other such nonsense on my part, they demonstrated endless patience and aplomb. -- Hamilton & Sandy Chu

Meriam is one of the most active punctual realtor I have ever met .

Usually experience is related to the age, but Meriam broke this rule as she is young but very well informed and have got enough experience to close successfully a complicated deal as mine. I would like to thank her so much for her assistance, backing and co-operation. I will always ask her to help me either I am a buyer or a seller . 

Karen was very responsive and involved with the entire process of renting my condo.

I would definitely use her services in the future. Thank you,

The Ashton Revocable Living Trust

Janice helped us through a difficult market period when traditional methods should have brought a number of offers we were stymied by a downturn in demand and a rise in interest rates.

Janice gave us solid advice and then when we did get a genuine offer, helped us negotiate a fair price with very favorable terms. Janice was more like family than I expected a Realtor professional could ever be.

Russell and Diane Reeded

Cathy did a terrific job and proved to be a great adavocate for the entire process.

The way she helped us prep the house and then did the marketing for it resulted in a buyer after just 4 days. She is the one you need when time and money are critical.

Robert BROWN

I was moving out of state and needed to sell my condo quickly.

I was referred to Martin & Laura by a friend who had worked with them in the past (as a co-worker not client).I met Martin and did a walk through of my condo. Martin pointed out the specific areas I needed to address before putting the property up on the market. He even referred me to service providers who could do the job quickly and for a very reasonable prices. I was concerned I would have to put a significant amount of money into the preparations for sale but Martin showed me how to keep the repairs to a minimum.During the same time period, I was traveling back and forth to my new residence which kept me from focusing on the preparing the property for sale. Martin was extremely understanding and did not pressure me to move forward until I was ready. Any delays in the process was strictly due to challenges with my schedule.Martin went "over and above" my expectations by helping manage/supervise a couple of the projects that needed to get done when I wasn't available Once the repairs were completed and I had completely moved out (I had already left the state), Laura staged the property and the photos came out GREAT!That weekend Martin & Laura held an open house at the condo. Within a day I had 6 offers, 3 or 4 which were viable. I really appreciated Martin's insight and experience when I was evaluating the offers. He thoroughly reviewed them all with me, pointing out some of the pros/cons with each. We narrowed it down to the top two and focused on them. Martin then went back and asked for "final and best" offer from each. I ended up with an offer that was more than I was originally asking!I was able to complete 90+% of the paperwork via a secure online signing system. This make the whole process MUCH easier, especially since I was no longer available to sign docs in person. It only took 31 days from seeing the offers for the first time to closing escrow!Working with Martin and Laura was a pleasure and they made the process much easier than I would have ever expected. They took the time to explain every detail and I never felt uncomfortable or overwhelmed by the sales process.I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who is looking for real estate agents and I would love to work with them again if I ever have a need to move back to SoCal!Many thanks to both of you! 

J.H.

Janice is a true professional and always works very hard.

She takes a lot of initiative on many levels and goes beyond the call of duty for helping her client. And, she's a great people person. I simply can't imagine anyone who knows her, not really liking her !

Richard and Thoms Reeves

My wife and I met Lisa at an open house 4 years ago.

We were looking to purchase a home at that time. She showed us many properties and was very knowledgeable and could answer all our questions, but unfortunately it wasn't the right time for us. Once we felt ready to purchase in 2015, we didn't hesitate to contact Lisa and let her know of our wishes for our house. She immediately followed up by sending us all listings that fit our needs, and we were able to find our new home in just one weekend looking with Lisa. We felt comfortable knowing that she knew the area and the many housing communities in Irvine. Lisa and Jeff helped us throughout the entire process, keeping in close contact until escrow closed. We would definitely ask Lisa and Jeff to help us in the future and will refer them to family and friends. I am confident that anyone looking for a realtor would be more than satisfied working with Lisa and Jeff, knowing they will be getting excellent service and knowledgeable and dedicated professionals. Myron & MIchelle, Tustin Ranch

I just purchased a home and Carole was my real estate agent.

She had patiently worked with me over the past year, and she went above and beyond for me. She even made me a large map of the area I was interested in so I could see which properties were single and multi-family lots. When I found a property, she was ready to help. Carole knows her stuff, is honest and very likeable, and did a great job in negotiating the terms of my purchase. She knows the ins and outs, and always kept me apprised of the progress along the way. I enjoyed the interactions with her and recommend her highly!

MARILYN HECKMAN

In 2018 we tried to sell our condo and had it listed for 4 months without one offer.

When we took it off the market Dean came to our door to ask what happened and to offer his help. Based on the first experience we were hesitant to relist so we took his info and told him we would consider First Team when we felt the timing was right. Fast forward one year, when we decided to re-list, Dean was our first and only call. His professional insight and what felt like limitless resources made the choice easy. Within 10 days of that meeting, the house was listed and after the first open house, we had multiple offers. The entire process was very easy and without any issues. Dean was amazing. Thank you Dean and the rest of the First Team team members.

Mark and Kristen C.

Dean went above and beyond my expectations during my house hunt.

Not only did he have an arsenal of properties prepared for my review; he was quick with follow up and had in depth market knowledge. I would highly recommend him.

D.Jankowski

I was extremely happy with Mana and her professionalism.

she was always available for me and went out of her way to accommodate my busy schedule. Parvin Nabavi.

We really enjoyed working with Martin and Laura last year.

They are both very professional individuals and helped us through the entire process of selling our home. Every week we had feedback from them on their progress and updates on the market. Working directly with Martin, he is very methodical and explains everything he is doing in a step-by-step manner. He is very conscientious, thorough and respectful of our home at all times. I would highly recommend working with both of them.

C. Spillar

Just awesome!

I highly recommend Jackie for any type of real estate purchases or rentals. She was very patient in answering all our questions. She set up electronics signature which made transactions much smoother.

After the initial excitement of looking for a new house wore off and in some ways turned to frustration, the attributes of our real estate agent became front and center.

Any agent can find listings in the area you prefer and in your price range. Gaylene concentrated on the specifics of what we looked for in a house and presented listings with those features. Gaylene not only did all she could to learn what we considered paramount in a home, she researched every new house on the market before even mentioning them to us. I would monitor new listings on the internet and more than once, when I mentioned something I had seen, she would respond, “this house is not for you” and explain why. She was correct every time. We began to feel guilty with how long it took before we found the right house for us and Gaylene would constantly remind me that this was a process and it takes time. Never once did she nudge us to offer on a house we did not feel right about. When we did chase a house that had multiple offers, she easily could have encouraged us to keep upping our bid until we had a deal. She did the opposite. She suggested the price was getting silly and we should let it go. Ironically, the house ultimately fell out of escrow, the price has dropped and the house is still on the market. We could not be more pleased with the residence we ultimately purchased. We often comment that it is the best house for us of everything we saw or in which we had potential interest. The actual buying process was handled as professionally as we could have hoped . It was a pleasure to work with Gaylene. John and Lisa John Mastropolo President / CFO Mason West, Inc.

Buying a home is a huge deal and can be a very scary thing, especially for a first time buyer.

I found myself asking "how do I pick a realtor, and do I even need one in this day and age"? I'm the type of person who likes to do things myself and try to save money any chance that I can. But stepping into a world that I knew little about, I really needed someone who I could trust that would look out for my best interest. We selected Dean Erickson, based on the positive reviews that we read and feel like we hit the jackpot with him. I would be surprised if we could've found a better agent to represent us and our interests. From the moment that I reached out to him, I felt at ease and comfortable. He responded right away and was not "pushy" at all as I found many other agents to be. Once we met and talked about what we were looking for, Dean was hard at work looking for our future home. He set us at ease with his patience, professionalism, and really communicating on what we could expect at every bend and turn of the process. Once we found the home we wanted to make an offer on, his diligence, advice, and recommendations really helped the seller select our family over several other families that made similar offers. I really credit Dean for this. I know he represented many other families, but Dean always made us feel important as if we were his only clients. He even was available while on vacation on the other side of the country. In a nutshell, Dean really made a stressful, at times scary, process very seamless and easy. We plan to be in our home for many years to come, but if I have any friends or family that need a real estate agent, or have any future realtor needs, Dean is our man! Thank you Dean for all that you have done for our family and making this a great experience!

Mana was AMAZING!

!! From our first conversation to getting the keys, Mana was a light to guide us through a successful first home purchase. Mana was not only highly responsive, accommodating, and knowledgeable; we have no doubt she is the reason our first and only offer was accepted on our home which had numerous competing bids. We know this as the seller's agent told us first hand. This is no doubt due to the great qualities mentioned above as well as her professionalism and her being a pleasure to work with. We couldn't have asked for anything more and truly felt Mana was in our corner, aggressive and supportive to ensure our best interests were her first priority. Thank you for all you've done!! Matt and Sabrina Roberts

Excellent service.

Thank you for your hard work

Ms Bryant is very knowledgeable and professional in her relations with the seller and prospective buyers.

She has a superior grasp of real estate law and is adept at "bargaining" with the buyer in all facets of the sale process. I really appreciate her protective attitude toward while representing me---she is 100% pro seller and I am certain she would have the same mind-set when she represents a buyer. I am super satisfied with her being with me as I went through the process of selling my home within a few days of offering it for sale. I would, most definitely recommend her to anybody interested in buying or selling property.

Max assisted my wife and me in our search for a home in Orange County, CA.

Throughout the process he brought us fresh ideas to consider, helped us explore options we might not have discovered on our own, and demonstrated expertise and understanding of real estate practices and the geographies in which we were searching. He was proactive without being pushy and always responsive to our inquiries and requests. Our search for a new home was lengthy and frustrating, including complex issues that led to a protracted escrow and a series of ongoing negotiations. Max was patient and resourceful in keeping the process moving forward and maneuvering around daunting obstacles. After we completed the purchase of our new home Max represented my wife in the sale of her previous home. He marketed the home effectively with other real estate agents using a variety of formal channels and personal networking. He identified well qualified prospective buyers and was able to sell her home quickly, above asking price. We recommend him without reservation.

Kevin is very skillful, professional and responsible.

"Thank you so much for helping us find and make our new home, ours!

From your advice to wearing flip-flops to walking us through countless homes, you've been wonderful and made this process far easier and fun that we ever imagined. We can't wait to show you the house once it's got the new floors and paint. I'll learn how to make those fancy Pina Coladas you told us about to celebrate!" Rachel and Steve, Aliso Viejo

I just listed my Investment Property in October with Nancy.

I was amazed by her Professionalism and Marketing strategies. Not only did she provide professional photography for my property, she also featured the property on Postcards, Brochures, and especially on the cover of SoCal Living Magazine,  which altogether really boosted traffic to my property. She had her first Open House on October 27th and I had 3 offers in my mailbox that same evening! She worked very hard and followed up on every single matter to the point of perfection. I am glad that I worked with her and am looking forward to working with her again in the near future. Without a doubt, I will refer her to all my friends and families! Thanks for all your hard work!

Majid Karimi

Dean had thoughtfully walked us through our first home purchase.

He was extremely patient throughout the whole process and explained everything to us in detail. He had also put his best effort to negotiate favorable terms for us while ensuring we were getting the home we were looking for. I would highly recommend Dean and his team- you will be in good care and company.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Karen and her positive impact on our house search in California.

Two years ago we had a fast timeline to move our family of 5 across the country from Maryland. We were recommended to work with Karen from a family member and she exceeded our expectations. Karen wasn't pushy; she really listened to what we desired in our new location/home and the result was an absolute home run - no pun intended. We told Karen that we were recommended to live in Orange County, with being new to Southern California, that is what we focused on. What she learned from our time together is that we came from small towns in a rural state, and that we had lived in the DC metro region for the past 10 years. We really desired a slower pace, and we wanted to be close to bigger cities. We also had three kids and a large German Shepherd, so we desired space and a town that had a community feeling. After numerous days of not falling in love with anything in Orange County, Karen recommended La Verne. A town she was familiar with in LA County that fit the description of everything we were looking for. We trusted her judgment and decided to give the town a look - we are sure glad we did. We honestly fell in love instantly, and the town was exactly what we were looking for. We already feel confident that we will probably live in this town for the rest of our lives. The final part of our home search was that we needed to choose a home and do everything while we continued out our time in Maryland. Karen visited numerous homes on our behalf and used FaceTime to give us tours of houses that we might like. Having listened closely to what we desired in a home, Karen almost immediately knew if it was the type of place that we would be happy with. We ended up finding an absolute gem of a home in a perfect location, which we never saw in person until the day we moved in. It's the type of home and location that has that wow factor for family and friends that have visited. You should feel confident in choosing to work with Karen. She is someone that will listen to your needs and work tirelessly on your behalf. We feel lucky to have worked with her and even luckier now to be able to call her a friend.

Vickie was a wonderful real estate agent.

Great attention to detail, resale value and knowledge about the local community. She always wants what is best for her clients. Was always accessible. Professional but very approachable. Loved our experience with Vickie. Would recommend her to our family and friends in a heartbeat.

It has been an extreme pleasure working with the Zwolak Group.

Susan and Jason are the ultimate team. They marketed our home weeks before we went live, and brought in more showings than all of our past listings combined. It also generated multiple offers. On top of that, they anticipated all of our concerns and needs before we even brought it up. A few times as we were about to text or email them, they would be sending us the information. It was almost like they can read our minds. Susan and Jason also made the escrow process seamless. They stayed on top of the closing process and made sure both the buyer and their lender stayed on schedule. In fact, it happened so smooth, we would sometimes forget that the home was in escrow. Of all of our home sales, this has been the least stressful one. The Zwolak Group worked hard, going above and beyond to sell our home; and was always available when we had a question. From the first time we interacted with them to the day we turned over the keys to the buyers, they have been just as attentative and responsive. We never waited long for them to respond to any questions we had. It goes without saying that if we ever have another home to sell in the area, we would hire them without hesitation. We consider them not only our agent, but our friends.

Apollo & Lisa Mok

It was such a treat finding a realtor who cares so much for her clients!

She went far above and beyond to help us find a place. If you are looking for someone that will treat you with respect and go the extra mile for you, you will find that in Karen. I highly recommend her!!!

Cindy C.

Adrienne is professional and finds the right tenants.

Robert & Liz Barman

Karen is not just an agent, she is your friend.

She will look and find you whatever you want and if she can’t, she will keep looking until she does. She truly only wants your best interest and will stop at nothing to get it for you. She does not push or try to sell you things you do not want. It’s all about listening. I can’t remember the last time someone has always been there communicating every step of the way. From initial conversation to house searching, to house selection, and throughout the whole paperwork process and finalizing, she was always keeping me updated. The whole process was a breeze because of her hard work and dedication. And the most important thing is that we are happy! I would not recommend anybody else but Karen. She is truly the best!!

We recommend her wholeheartedly!

Jimmy & Elei Yung

Recently, Joan helped me to purchase a property.

With her hard work, we got the house we wanted. From our experience, I can tell Joan is a very responsible agent. Whenever I called her, she always responded to me very fast. She is a very professional Agent. I remembered I needed a document on the East coast. She got up at 6 am to help me get the document, because of time difference. With her hard work, we closed the deal 15 days earlier than it was supposed to, even though we had to have a loan. I highly recommend her as an agent.

Xiurong Ding

Dean's devotion to his clients is truly unparalleled.

Although we met by chance in an open house well above my budget, he made it very clear that he would fight tooth and nail to get me, a first-time home buyer, into my dream property. When "the one" appeared shortly after, Dean utilized his strong grasp of the housing market to ensure that our offer stood out above the rest. After the offer was accepted, Dean did everything in his power to make sure the escrow process went smoothly, even with a tight timeline. Additionally, he was very approachable and accessible when it came to answering questions, which made things significantly less stressful. I'm very fortunate to have had Dean as my agent throughout this experience, and I will always be thankful that his efforts paved the way for me to call my new place home.

I've been working with Nancy since 2009, a friend of mine refereed her to me in 2009, I came to California to purchase an investment property and in one weekend, she found me exactly what I was looking for, since then, I have purchased 2 more investment properties through her, she has helped me with finding the best tenants  for all 3 homes, her real estate knowledge is far more than any other real estate agent I have met.

She is honest and very straight forward. She is the best negotiator. I enjoy working with her and I have refereed her to my friends and family. I highly recommend her to anyone who is planning to buy or sell a property.

I was referred to Xuhong Mai through my sister.

She has done an excellent job by starting the professional photographer to take nice pictures on my rental property and then loaded to web site which attracted many people. She organized 3 open houses with 6 scheduled people each time and even made a nice online property tour video for the people didn’t have time show up. She followed up with all potential tenants and discussed with me to choose the best tenant, she also helped to find a good painter for property wall maintenance. She is professional, reliable, helpful and pleasant to work with. I highly recommend Xuhong Mai to anybody who is looking for a realtor to buy, sale or rent property.

I have known Mana for many years and have used her professional services in several real estate transactions.

I can attest that she is one of the most capable real estate agents that I have ever known, one who truly exhibits honesty, integrity and diligence. Mana stands out for her strategic planning and marketing skills through constant communication and by providing relevant information to her clients. Throughout the years, I have also referred many friends to Mana, who have all been very pleased with her real estate knowledge and services.

Haleh Khatami

We've known Marina for approximately 5 - 5-1/2 years.

We met her when we were looking for someone to lease our home. We leased our home twice during this timeframe and both tenants were terrific. We never had any problems, the tenants were very nice & responsible, and Marina was always there for us if we needed her. We were in contact with Marina during the entire time our home was leased, whether by her great emails or meeting for a friendly lunch. Marina is a very responsible realtor and takes her job seriously, and she is so very friendly and always offers to help us in any way she can. We now have our home up for Lease (or Sale) again, and Marina is the only one we want to handle this for us. We trust her completely. Sincerely, Ann and Donn Bergeman

If you are considering engaging Gene Turley as your real estate agent, please do not hesitate.

He’s the absolute best! My uncle passed last year and it was necessary to sell his home. Gene worked with the family as if it were his own. His sensitivity toward the circumstances was our first introduction to Gene’s many gifts. All along the way he made it as easy and painless as possible in what could have been a very tricky situation. Not only did he secure bids for fixing the home up in order to sell it, he got excellent bids from excellent trades people. He was on the property during all repairs. If someone did not do a job to his satisfaction, he made sure it was remedied. Gene’s ability to market a property is nothing short of superb. He understands the local market, he understands how to create desire, he is brilliant at pricing the home to generate the most buyers without undercutting the price as to cause the owner to lose money. In this particular case (and I suspect with many others) he was able to garner multiple bids above the asking price. And if that weren’t enough, Gene had the foresight to hold our inexperienced hands all the way through escrow, even though it was not his duty to do so. He was there for all inspections, protected the seller against over-reaching hands of the buyers in asking for repairs that were unwarranted. In short, if you hire Gene Turley, congratulations, you are in superb hands! Janet

Mary Kay did an excellent job to help us purchase our current home.

 She was very responsive to answer all questions we had.  I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sale a house -Quin Y.

Martin and Laura are an amazing couple.

They go beyond the scope of their job as realtors. They took care of our needs, answering our questions promptly and politely, and made the paperwork as easy and uncomplicated as possible.They are extremely knowledgeable of the real estate industry and their individual strengths compliment each other. Our expectations were more than fulfilled as they continued to amaze us throughout the process of selling my mom's rental, purchasing another property and then getting it rented. We recommend that if you have the opportunity to work with them don't hesitate as you will not be disappointed. They are the best!

With his insightful knowledge and prompt follow-up, we were able to find what we were looking!

James H. Chung

Jackie helped my family sell our home for over the asking price within days of being listed on the market.

She was able to accommodate our family's schedule when making showing appointments, which is very important with 3 toddlers. Jackie also found us our dream home & was able to negotiate with  the seller to get us the house even when they had other offers.

He was very professional, responsive, easy to contact and handled my sell on a very smooth way.

I did not have to invest too much of my time and they kept me updated when necessary. He represented both the seller and the buyer and that was new for me. Nevertheless I did not feel at any time that I was on disadvantage and the sell happened as expected and agreed.

My friends referred Becky to me and I’m glad I hired her.

She was hard-working and resourceful. When I had problems, she had the answers. Good job!

We were and are truly blessed to work with Nancy Aynehchi and F1rstTeam Realtors.

We were very excited at seeing the homes Nancy had chosen for us to view. Having never met in person, she had taken our desires into consideration and presented us with homes that were right on point. Having purchased a few homes in the past, I have never been fortunate enough to find a home, make an offer, and settle on a price within five days. This was a first time for my daughter and son-in-law and the process really was very smooth. Considering we are all out of town or even out of state, Nancy’s availability and willingness to help us no matter what the questions was invaluable. We truly could not have asked for a more knowledgeable and helpful realtor. We would recommend her to anyone wanting to purchase a home in the area which she serves. She is top notch!

Rita Adams

I have been so satisfied with Sandi Clark and Debbie Miller’s work.

Number one on my list Sandi took all my phone calls promptly and never made me feel a nuisance. Sandi knew I was selling after the death of my sister. She made me feel I was well taken care of through her constant communication. Sandi knew all the right people to get my property in shape. Sandi picked my new appliances, carpet, paint color, and she was right on. Staged it perfectly. Her estimate of my costs were right on. Everything was fast and it sold immediately with many offers. When it was time to sign all the papers she explained each one thoroughly with no rushing. I cannot think of anything for her to improve on. She’s just an all around sweet, knowledgeable gal. Robin and Wil Smolen

I am fortunate that a friend referred Nancy Aynehchi to me when I was looking for a Real Estate Agent to sell my Irvine home where I lived for 17 years.

I received excellent service and valuable expert advice from Nancy. My home was presented as a model home with various marketing tools such as publications and virtual tour. I received proper & timely communications about offers and counter offers. I was impressed by Nancy’s professionalism and willing to go above and beyond what a typical RE Agent has done in my past experiences. I am happy we were able to sell my home in a short time at the right price. I will certainly not hesitate to recommend Nancy Aynehchi to my friends & acquaintances for their Real Estate needs.

Phoebe was the listing agent of our house in Rowland Heights which was sold within 30 days with full market value last September.

She worked very hard during that period. We sold our house without any hassles at all.

5 STARS!

! Gaylene has been my real estate agent twice in the last two years - once for selling a house, and now for purchasing a house. Both times she was completely professional and I had no doubt that she had my best interest at heart. I had complete trust and faith in her that she always acted on my behalf. I could not recommend a better person than Gaylene to represent anyone wishing to buy or sell property.

She did it again, my tenant gave me a notice to vacate my investment property last month, I asked Nancy to help me find a good tenant again, she listed the house for lease right away, interviewed many applicants and chose a great tenant for me.

She negotiated all the terms, and took care of everything. I have worked with Nancy many times, she goes above and beyond to get the job done. Once she told me she loves what she does, it sure seems like it, she treats my family like her own and she truly cares. I can't thank you enough Nancy. Keep up the good work. I'll keep referring you to my friends and family as I have many times.

            Phoebe did an excellent job for us.

She is professional, aggressive, imaginative, and creative in her sales efforts and they certainly paid off. Our house was sold in 11 days from date of listing which is amazing for the current market. She worked tirelessly with her team mate Theresa to make the process as painless as possible. She kept us informed each step along the way and when there were minor bumps in the road Phoebe helped to smooth them out. If we had questions she responded immediately. I would gladly recommend Phoebe to anyone who is considering selling their home or has other real estate needs. Thank you Phoebe!

I would not work anywhere else!

! The support and attention that Terry provides is beyond helpful. I so much appreciate working in this truly team atmosphere where the smiles don't stop after you sign. Thank you, Terry, for always being there.

Maria is the best real estate agent I've ever come across.

She responds so quickly, is easy to talk to & is always eager to help, even at midnight. She goes out of our way to make sure we're informed every step of the way, especially because we're college students & she goes above and beyond to answer all of our questions. Amazing realtors like Maria are few and far in between, and my housemates & I are so grateful that she helped us secure our dream townhome. Thank you so much Maria, you are so incredibly amazing!

We have recently rented our house via Nancy Aynehchi at First Team and wanted to advise how happy and impressed we’ve been at Nancy’s support in making this happen.

After buying our house through Nancy in the past we had no hesitation in asking her to find suitable tenants for our property. Throughout the process Nancy was very professional, responsive and pragmatic. Nancy is excellent in following up emails and calls and resolving any questions that may arise from both parties point of view. At times she went out of her way to sort out a couple of things for us which really helped put us at ease knowing that Nancy was at hand to manage things. We highly recommend Nancy to anyone considering either renting or buying a property. Thanks again Nancy.

Jackie was the package deal.

She listened to our needs and wants and always kept them in mind. Her ability to negotiate on our behalf was top notch. She aggressively represented us while being respectful, calm and confident. During the process of selling our home we never felt insecure or concerned because we knew she had it in hand. We highly recommend Jackie!

Rhonda Bell

We would like to thank Nancy on her professionalism and real estate knowledge.

I met Joan in China during our Root trip with our Chinees children.

I met Joan at the first time in Xiushan. She guide us at the orphanage of our daughter and later on to Chongqing. Joan is a tour guide with a lot of knowledge of foreign countries en cultures which makes it easy to communicate with her. But of course she knows a lot of the China country so we learned a lot...more July 26, 2010, Johan was Qiong's client

In the early part of 2020, my wife Michelle and I decided it was the right time to sell our home of 25 years and downsize.

We had talked about selling the house with many agents but always kept coming back to the idea of using Nancy Aynehchi who we had known through our sons. Nancy had already proven to us her straightforward honesty and reputation that she would be a great choice. Through working together with Nancy over a few short weeks we were amply rewarded by her detailed work and high level of knowledge and experience. She made the whole experience fun and rewarding. We could not have been more pleased with the outcome. As is typical several issues came up and Nancy handled everyone of them, and the deal went through in record time even in the face of the looming health crisis we all were facing. The first open house was a huge success with over 130 visitors coming through. Turns out the buyer came through that day and fell in love with the house. We want to give Nancy the highest recommendation as she deserve all the praise, we can give her! With Nancy and her team, you are in great hands!! Rob Henderson

I love working with Carol.

She is very attentive to my / our needs. She is very knowledgeable in what she is doing as a real estate agent. She is very professional, courteous and thoughtful. She did her research and was always well prepared for each of our meetings. In helping us finding a new home, she visited us personally and started with asking questions about why, where and when we planned to buy a house. She gathered information thoroughly for us. She wants to make sure that we got what we were looking for. She guided us through the whole buying process until the close of escrow and funds are properly wired from overseas to the escrow company. The whole buying process went smoothly. I enjoy working with Carol. In preparing our old house for renting, Carol gives us good advice and referrals for touch up works. She responds to our questions in a timely manner. She keeps in touch with us in a regular basis of any updates or concern. She is articulate. She is sincere and firm, and very thoughtful. She cares about our needs. I am pleased to recommend Carol to anyone who is buying / selling or renting a house. Carol is our number one real estate agent. We are very blessed to know her.

I would like to thank Meriam for all her effort with me until we found the house of my dreams.

She was very patient,professional and very honest  at all times. Meriam is a hard worker and has a pleasant personality. She was always available to provide help when needed. I strongly recommend any one wants to buy a house to choose Meriam. Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $825K in Orange, CA.

Adrienne gets it done.

When I let her know it is time for a new tenant, she gets right to work and does so much behind the scenes. She is an over achiever, and I never worry because she always gets it done right.

A few months ago we bought our first house from Max Carr and Cathy Lewis, a truly wonderful team.

The experience was a pleasure from start to finish. Shortly after we met Max, he spent a couple of hours doing an in-depth interview of us to find out what we wanted in a house. That interview gave him detailed information about what we were looking for, and helped him to expand our search beyond a relatively small number of places to a much larger pool. Unfailingly friendly and courteous, he took us to see places even when he wasn't feeling well, and made a note each time of what we liked and disliked. He also took the time to walk us through the process of buying a house from start to finish, so that we would know what to expect ahead of time. He and Cathy introduced us to professionals they trusted, like a home inspector and escrow company, so that we would have the best possible experience. When Max and Cathy found the place we eventually bought -- a place that hadn't even come on the market yet -- they worked together to make sure that the sale was a win-win for both ourselves and the seller. They also helped us to find a moving company, which proved to be an outstanding choice. By the time we moved in, the whole experience had been such a pleasure that we felt happy as soon as we walked in the door. Max is an exceptional Realtor, and I give him my highest recommendation.

I bought two houses with the help from Gaylene, the first one was in 2013 when the market was extremely frenzy, and Gaylene was very patient and I finally found something that suited my needs. The second house I bought was with my wife, and Gaylene was able to find something that both of us liked. Even though I am not a first time home buyer anymore, it still made a huge difference to have someone with the experience to guide us through the process. I thought about using one of the online discount brokers, but there's just certain knowledge that couldn't be replicated. I will definitely use Gaylene in the future again.

Gordon Lin

Sandi was absolutely wonderful to work with - knowledgeable, professional and always available to answer any questions I had.

She walked me through the home seller process, guiding me along the way with patience and kindness, when I didn't know anything. It was my first time putting a home on the market and I couldn't have done it without Sandi. Thank you Sandi for advising me and always keeping me informed. You made the process more enjoyable with your sense of humor and years of experience! I highly recommend working with Sandi Griffo - she is a gem!

"My husband Doug and I worked with Max in selling my home and finding our new home.

We're newlyweds, and wanted to start our marriage together in our dream home. Max is a true professional and a pleasure to work with. Doug met Max conducting an open house in my old neighborhood, and although that property was not going to meet our needs, Doug was very impressed with the questions Max asked and his follow-up to assist us in finding our house. This set Max apart from other realtors we had come in contact with; Max really targeted properties for us to view and did not waste our time with properties that were far afield from anything we would consider. Max listens. Max follows-up diligently. With Max’s assistance we found our perfect house, and through amazing persistence it is now ours, with Max guiding us through a lengthy and complicated 102 day escrow. I was so impressed with Max that I used him to sell my house after we closed on our new home. Max previewed my home with extensive beautiful advertising and professional photographs to the large realtor network to which he has access. We priced my home well above comps. It sold over asking price for full cash with a short escrow, allowing Doug and me to immediately both move into our lovely new home. We highly recommend Max as an intelligent, professional, and knowledgeable realtor, and also as a person of strong character and ethics."

Karen was kind, prompt, professional and I really felt like she cared about me.

She worked with my quick timeline and made the move-in process incredibly easy and enjoyable. Thank you for your help, Karen!

Heather Parks

Jackie was amazing!

She was able to sell our condo and close on our dream home within a week of each other. She was always attentive to our needs and provided the guidance and advise we needed. She was always organized and professional, as well as personable and a pleasure to work with. Her  knowledge of real estate is spot on and she has the relationships/contacts we needed for every aspect of the process.She made our dreams come true in a challenging situation, we could not be happier with her services and would strongly recommended her to our closest family and friends.

"I want to personally thank you for all your hard work in helping me find a beautiful condo where I now can call home.

I know you did a lot of legwork for me since my requirements were a bit unique. I am so glad you were referred to me.  You came higly recommended by my friend and now I know why; you were professional, informative and most of all very patient with me since we only looked at over 20 homes! I am a first time homebuyer and I am very lucky that you made it so easy, especially with a short sale. I wish you much success in all you do and I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know who is looking." Timothy, Tustin Ranch

Nancy is an amazing agent.

She went above and beyond to make my experience as smooth as possible. She followed up with me for things that I have even forgotten. Her knowledge of real estate definitely helped me to make the right decisions even if it wasn't in her benefit at the time. Once she takes on the task, she is your advocate and she remains on task until it's done. She is honest and reliable. i would recommend Nancy Aynehchi to all my friends and family.

Gita Aminloo

Karen was a consummate professional and went above and beyond in helping us getting our place ready for lease.

She was prompt and responsive to all requests and many times offered to assist before we even thought to ask. We would definitely recommend Karen without hesitation.

Mark Padilla and Sheng Chi Yu

Over the years Vickie has represented us in numerous real estate transactions, both buying and selling.

Each and every time she has gone above and beyond our expectations to make sure everyone involved is completely satisfied upon completion. I have and will continue to recommend Vickie. She is always professional and completely knowledgeable in all aspects of the real estate industry. Her vast experience speaks for itself. Vickie Pham is truly the best agent I have ever worked with.

Joann Garcia

Grace is a true professional.

She is knowledgeable, affectionate about her job, and always protecting the best interests of her clients. She knows how to handle well in a tough negotiation process. Our recent experience with her was nothing but happiness. She was able to sale and close our house within a month. We are very happy about that and appreciate all her efforts. I think your company should be proud to have her in your team.

HS Huang

Hiring Carole Mancini was the best decision I made when selling my home!

She marketed my home with beautiful, professional photos and advertised over hundreds of publications and online real estate sites. She is so personable, and was in constant communication with me, updating me on who showed my property, where my home was marketed, offering her expertise every step of the way. We had multiple offers within a week, and the escrow was so smooth, I couldn't have been more pleased! Carole is ethical, dependable, hard working and so enthusiastic that I highly recommend her for anyone thinking of selling! It was a wonderful experience working with her. I'm actually going to miss not being in contact with her. Thank you Carole, you're a blessing!

MARILYN HECKMAN

Carole Mancini took my short sale from list to lender approval and close of escrow in less than 90 days!

  She was attentive to every call and made what could have been a stressful process smooth and easy!  Carole is a true professional, very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with!  

GARY WINN

We couldn't have been more pleased with the service we received from both Martin and Laura Uribe.

 My wife and I contemplated many different options before deciding on short selling our property.  We consulted many different agents, but none of them felt right for our needs.  When we first met Martin and Laura, we knew they would be the right choice for us.  They made us feel comfortable and helped guide us through what seemed like an insurmountable ordeal.  They were patient and were always there to answer questions about every step of the process.  Whether it was the middle of the night or on weekends, they were always there for us.  Their experience was second to none and I truly believe had we gone with someone else, we would not have finalized our deal.  If you are looking for agents with professionalism, experience, integrity, and know how look no further than Martin and Laura.

Phoebe helped my sister sell her house.

My sister had a so called friend as a Realtor who seemed more interested in a quick sale at a low ball price. That Realtor had no local knowledge and after signing Phoebe as a Realtor my sister sold her house at more than 60k higher, in a reasonable amount of time.She and her team were very professional and did a great job.I would highly recommend her and her team to any prospective buyers or sellers. --- Art Gomez - Walnut, CA

Monique was attentive to every little detail and did a wonderful job helping us purchase our first home!

She was always available to discuss any questions or concerns I may have had and always willing to meet me to look at a place! Thank you Monique!

Meriam was really nice to us, she helped us a lot to find a home to buy .

She was really caring about us and she was calling every day to make sure that every thing is going fine and we saw the homes that she sent it to us and we appreciate her work . Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $550K in Northeast Anaheim, Anaheim, CA.

KAREN IS MOST EFFICIENT AND PROFESSIONAL AND I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO MY FRIENDS SHE GETS THINGS DONE IN QUICK ORDER

Diane Paskerian

Buying a home is a stressful adventure, and having a great realtor makes it a lot smoother.

We actually had a team of two great realtors! I cannot recommend Khan Varnishung and Becky Lu highly enough. We were looking for a good buyer’s agent when it came to real estate, but most reviews only seemed to come from people who were selling houses. We had an uphill battle - when we were looking (Spring 2017.) Ten days was a long time for a house to be on the market. Most houses we liked sold within two or three days of being listed. Before we found Khan and Becky, the few times we bid on a house it went for at least $5k-10k OVER the asking price. It was without a doubt a seller’s market. The quick overview: 1. Listened and remembered what we wanted and what were deal breakers 2. Met us several times and showed us a number of houses as quickly and conveniently for us. 3. Spent hours (yes hours… at one place my father insisted on bringing survey equipment to measure the slope of a patio) with us looking at various houses. 4. Available whenever we had a question or a concern. 5. Showed us places that were not yet listed on the MLS 6. Offered insightful advice on each particular house, the seller, price, upcoming market, and a numerous other details 7. Arranged portfolios with specific details on each home we looked at, including statistical data that we requested they include (I’m a big fan of hard numbers - for example I can tell you the kilowatt hours of all the refrigerators we researched). When we began working with Khan and Becky, they immediately set up an appointment to meet with us. To get the ball rolling quickly, they drove out to meet us near my husband’s work during his lunch hour. When we had first talked with them, we described vaguely what we wanted in terms of location, square footage, and price range. They came to the meeting with a prepared portfolio of houses that fit our general description. Having combed through the MLS recently I was familiar with a number of the listings, and went through why we dismissed some and why we were interested in others. Here’s where they really stand out: they listened and remembered the things we thought were important. One difference between a realtor who’s good at helping you sell and one good at helping you buy is in the search. The market has a limited number of homes, this is true, but the main job of the realtor is to find those homes and bring them to you. You need to get Khan and Becky on your team. They are the best!

Monique represented me in both the purchase and sale of my properties.

She did a great job on both transactions. I am impressed with her extensive knowledge and exceptional customer service. With her vast experience in dealing with sellers, buyers, lenders, inspectors, and contractors, she was able to anticipate and handle any concerns that may arise before they become an issue. Also, her long association with direct lender made my loan process extremely smooth. In my opinion, a broker of long experience and diligent service is essential to any transaction. I highly recommend Monique Vang and would happily work with her again.

joei nguyen

Cathy was exceptional all the way through the purchase process.

She educated us on the market and availability. Then she helped us find and negotiate the perfect unit. She then was one step ahead on everything through the escrow process. She was always there to answer my questions and "hold my hand" through all of the steps of the sale. I highly recommend her!

Jon Wilks

Mana Aminian is exactly the type of person I would want representing me in a purchase or a sale of my home.

She's been my agent in both of those cases and I love the way she treats me like a partner and shows so much care. She is diligent, trustworthy and prompt. She knows her stuff and she was always keeping on top of everything and helping me through every step of the way. She has a lifetime client here!

Mahsa Mahboub

Nancy is a true Gem.

She was positive and helpful throughout the entire process of Renting our new home. I could not ask for a better representative for matching our needs to the Home of our choice. Would recommend her to anyone and will often.

Mark Dillard

Karen has been a huge help to me and my family in locating a new home when we’ve moved to a new city here in Orange County.

I always trust Karen, because she has always been very professional and diligent in her efforts and always seems to find us the right place! Moving is never fun, but knowing I have Karen on my side, helps me out a lot! Karen has taken out all of the time and stress in finding a new home for us. I have been using Karen’s help for the last 8 yrs and Karen has never disappointed us in finding a great place that we can call home! I’ve know Karen personally for 20 yrs and I refer her frequently to friends and family confidently, knowing they’re in good hands with Karen! Karen is great at her job and she has earned our respect and gratitude! Thanks Karen! You’re the best!

Ray Sikes

Max Carr is great to work with.

He took the time to understand what we were looking for, sometimes learning things about our preferences that even we didn’t know. He then translates that understanding into a portfolio of homes that fit our lifestyle. He helped us find our dream home in the first week of searching. He also put together a strategy to leverage our strongest bargaining position for getting the best deal possible. Max is always available and responds quickly to our calls, voicemails or emails. And he continued helping after the sale to make sure our lender had everything ready to go. Throughout the buying process he served as advisor and confidant. We will definitely use him again next time we buy a home in Orange County.

Bill & Brenda S.

Murray and Amy Falk were not only the best professionals in any business, they are really nice people and worked with us on every little detail making the sale such an easy process.

Thank-you

Janice marketed our neighbors house and worked hard to get the sale, which is how we met.

She did a great job staging our house to make it look current and attractive and developed a strong marketing campaign. Thanks to her efforts the house sold in 4 days at very close to list price. Janice guided us through the entire process and made it painless. Janice is very good at

Fred and Nancy Grondhuis

We would like to thank Nancy on her professionalism and real estate knowledge.

She was so patient with us in our decision to select our dream home. She negotiated a great deal on our recent home purchase in Corona. We greatly appreciate her work and would recommend her highly for anyone in the market to buy or sell a home. Thank you Nancy you made us very happy.

We have known Adrienne Oranges for eleven years.

She is at the top of her profession-knowledge of the market, owner and seller communication, negotiation, attention to detail. In 2004 Adrienne sold our home in Irvine, twice. It fell out of escrow. She raised the price and sold it again. Higher than the first time. last month we called her to list our duplex in Costa Mesa. She sold it in seven days, considerablly over the list price. She is a gem.

Don and Lisa Gordon

Almost a year before we decided to sell our home, our family met Jason and Susan at a local open house.

Immediately they struck us as genuine, caring and knowledgeable real estate professionals. At the time we were still not sure whether we were going to sell our home. However, several months later we came to the decision that our house needed to be sold due to financial hardship. Luckily, Jason's great follow up skills kept his image fresh in our minds. We had met many other real estate agents since our initial meeting with Jason and Susan, but we were concerned about their quality and experience. Subsequently, we decided to hire Jason and Susan and we definitely did not regret it. Susan is a phenomenal stager and she really transformed our house for the professional photos and the open house. Jason's negotiations skills were instrumental in getting our deal done. They were patient with us as we had many questions as first time sellers. Also, they were compassionate in understanding the emotional struggle of selling our home of 26 years. Obviously we cannot say enough about their professionalism and knowledge, but to add to it, they are just great people to work with. We not only found great real estate agents, but also great friends. We highly recommend this awesome real estate duo and we plan to continue to use their services moving forward.

Jay & Young Chong

It was wonderful working with Max.

He made the process stress free and made sure we were fully informed every step of the way so that we could make confident and smart choices. He was readily available and responded promptly. He was polite and respectful not only to us but to anyone we interacted  with. I always felt like I was in good hands and that I could fully trust his expertise. He was also very forthright when it came to a place we really loved. I really appreciated his passion, to fight as hard as he could to put us in a favorable light with the seller. Overall I'd work with him again and would recommend him as a realtor.Jason - 26591 Dolorosa, MV

My wife Lou Wanna and I just want to express our pleasure with the job Grace Tu did selling our home in Irvine.

She is very pleasant and was very easy to work with during the entire process. In addition to obtaining top dollar, she did a wonderful job of marketing our property and attracting potential buyers to our home. She held frequent open houses and made every effort to sell the property to a well qualified buyer. She was also very responsive and quick to return messages when we had questions or issues. She did a very good job during the escrow period making certain everything that needed to be done was done so properly and promptly. I would highly recommend you consider selecting her to be your agent when you consider selling or buying a home.

Harold Katz

Nancy was extremely professional with me with my lease on my new house.

She handled it from start to finish, she’s is my long term agent from now on.

Joshua McClure

Martin and Laura were the agents we used for our home purchase.

Words cannot express how glad we were to have picked them. Being first time home buyers can be a scary and exiting feeling. So, having an agent that you can trust and rely on is very important. Throughout the process of finding our home Martin and Laura were very patient, showing us house after house and answering all our questions. I would defiantly recommend them for your next home purchase or sale. They are very knowledgeable and will go out of their way for their clients.

·         Local knowledge:·         Process expertise:·         Responsiveness:·         Negotiation skills:Cathy Lewis and Max Carr recently handled the sale of my Irvine home. It was a pleasure to work with two experienced realtors who demonstrated expertise, exemplary service, and strong negotiation skills. When I first met with Cathy and Max, they presented a strong marketing plan, which resulted  in a rapid sale at a price significantly higher than my asking price. At the beginning of the process, they asked me if my goal was selling the home as soon as possible or maximizing the home’s value. I wanted a good return on the sale, and Cathy worked closely with me to achieve that. She helped me select a tradesman to paint the home, install new flooring, and upgrade the master bathroom and kitchen. Cathy managed the entire process for me and ensured that all the work was performed to high expectations. The end result was a beautiful home that had over 3,000 hits on Zillow and that sold at a price that paid for the upgrades I had done many times over. As a result of their marketing, I had about a dozen offers on the property, and Cathy and Max negotiated with the buyers to maximize my return. They’re great people, too! I give them my highest recommendation. Doug – 100 Navarre 

Doug Prochaska

This was our first time working with an agent in the purchase of a home.

Everything was handled in a straight forward and clear manner. The experience was smooth, stress-free and convenient, and communication with Jason and Susan was easy; they made the 30-day escrow appear effortless. They delivered service above our expectations, and we’d absolutely recommend them to others.

Al & Karina

I just want to express how tankful I am of having Cathy Haney as a realtor.

She is an excellent professional . She knows exactly what to do and when. She is so professional from beginning to end. Love the way She describes things and how organized She is. If I have to sell my house again or buy a new place, I defiantly will choose her again.

Maria G. Brown

Great Team Work!

My husband and I met Martin when I was pregnant and we found our home when my child was two years old. He never made us feel like we were an inconvenience or wasting his time. Even when we first met him at an open house he made us feel very important. More than that he was incredibly knowledgeable about real estate and the area. He made us feel like we could count on him for our real estate needs. Working with him and Laura was very easy. If he did not answer the phone we got a call back right away from his partner and wife Laura who was also very efficient and knowledgeable. I loved how great the communication with each other and with us, especially when we went into escrow (30 days of buying the home) we always had questions and paperwork to sign. It was great working with Martin and Laura and I do look forward to working with them again when we get a bigger home for our expanding family. I highly recommend working with this great team.

Anna DiCenzo

Nancy Aynehchi has been such a pleasure to work with in the sale of our investment condo.

She is extremely knowledgeable about every facet of real estate. I met Nancy about a year ago when we were looking at a condo for investment purposes.  We asked her for advise and she was so knowledgeable and genuine that immediately we knew that she would be our Realtor for life. Therefore, when we decided to sell our condo, after a year of renting it out, we approached her, she gave us excellent advise on what and how to renovate the property for maximum return.  After renovation we listed the property with her.  Given the market had slowed down a little, I expected to have the property on the market for a couple of months at least. But seeing how Nancy approached the open houses and managed the potential buyers it was unbelievable we got multiple offers within the first two weeks of the listing and sold it in only 17 days.Her negotiations skills were excellent, the way she prepared counter offers was amazing; we got top dollar for our investment.  I believe it was the highest price/sq. ft. sale in that neighborhood. From the day we chose to sell through the close of escrow, she was extraordinarily helpful, communicated very well, and very competent throughout.  We are now looking for another property and with Nancy on our side looking forward to another successful transaction.

1)      Phoebe is an incredible Agent.

She is very professional and has a lot of positive energy. She sold our house with the listed price very quickly. The whole transaction was very smooth and painless. Her negotiations skills are exceptional.. She is very patient and answers all your questions in detail. I will very highly recommend her to everyone.

"Its nice to work with such honest and truly genuine and competent professionals like yourselves.

Here's to a smooth escrow and quick approval for our home! Thanks for putting up with us!" Dewey and Yoko, North Tustin

I really enjoyed meeting Jackie at the open house.

There were several other people touring the property and she made a point to greet and answer everyone's questions in a friendly, professional manner. We decided on the spot to put in an offer, making Jackie our agent as well. Getting to know her was a pleasure. She was easy to talk to and always available to answer questions and give advice when asked. Her knowledge made the process extremely smooth. We would easily use Jackie in any other real estate venture. Hopefully, I have mad a friend as well!

Patricia Laughlin

Nancy was amazing.

..again! Nancy first helped us find a home a little over 6 years ago. So, when it came time to move this time around, she was our first and only phone call. And, like last time, she came through for us. Nancy is very professional and is easy to access whether it be a phone call, text, or e-mail. We never had to wait too long for a response to our many questions and she was always available to meet us when it was convenient for us. I will continue to turn to Nancy when I need house help, and would highly recommend her!

Kevin D.

A friend of mine bought her first home through Max, and when I asked her if she would recommend him for my own first time buying a place, she responded with an emphatic and unequivocal, "YES.

" I was worried that Max would try to sell me on a single-family home (since that's what my friend got), but after my first five minutes with them, we were all on the same page that my lifestyle, preferences, and budget matched perfectly with a bachelor pad. The challenge was then in finding one in the Irvine Business District that was close to work and came with low monthly HOA fees. Whenever I tried to convince myself that I liked an imperfect listing more than I actually did, Max made sure that I listened to my gut until the right place came around. He had been so attentive to everything I said I was looking for, so I reluctantly trusted his judgment, but now I'm SO incredibly grateful that I did. A few days later, the perfect place came on the market. Luckily, Max had already made sure that I had my ducks lined up a month earlier so that I could put in the strongest possible offer when the time came. After we beat all the other offers, we managed to close escrow after just NINE DAYS, and I even got quite a bit of credit back to pay for the repairs and upgrades I'm currently doing (using an amazing contractor that Max and Cathy recommended, no less)! If you're looking for attentive, knowledgeable, and competitive agents to help you buy or sell your home, I can't recommend Max enough

Thank You!

Nancy Aynehchi was a referral through a family member.

We interviewed a few realtors before my husband and I met Nancy Aynehchi. I must say we were impressed by her knowledge and love for real estate. We had decided to sell our home where we raised our kids so it was a bit emotional for us. Nancy’s professionalism, patience & honesty carried us through the process. She walked us through the steps and we felt very comfortable. Because of her extensive and professional marketing, she sold our house with multiple offers for much more than we expected. We highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell.

Dina Aminnia

Grace did an amazing Job.

Responsive, informative and willing to educate me through the process as it was my first time. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to list their home as well as a anyone seeking a home. She did a great job with both sides. Really pleased with the stress less process.

Michael

My fiance and I so appreciate Maria's guidance when looking for our first home together.

Being completely new to the process of home-buying, we greatly value Maria's expertise. She takes the time to walk us through every aspect of the process from big picture concerns to smaller details we would have never known to think about. Maria is a great listener and can articulate and speak to our likes and dislikes and our thoughts and concerns. Best of all, she made herself available at all times, which is so very helpful as we have tons of questions, especially when it comes to filling out all the forms coming our way. The process of buying our wonderful home was truly a team effort, and we are so grateful for having Maria!

April B

So this is my second experience with Lisa and Jeff both as a seller and a buyer and clearly I am a fan given my return to their services.

As a seller this time around, the experience entailed a little more caution given the negotiation and costs associated with being the seller. What a wonderful thing to have them on my side and how comforting that was. Not only did they make it as painless as they could but they ended up being proactive on many points, which I was totally unaware of and it ended up saving me both in time and finances. Needless to say I am a fan and strongly recommend. This is an overwhelming process, make it easy on yourself and hire Jeff and Lisa. You will be glad you did. Sadie. 6/1/2015

After having a baby we found we needed much more space very quickly.

We didn't have much time and we found a property that Xuhong was representing. She was very thorough, punctual, and pleasant. She answered all of our questions knowledgeably and quickly. With Xuhong's assistance and guidance, we were chosen for the property. We truly feel that Xuhong was instrumental in this outcome. We look forward to using Xuhong as our realtor when we are ready to purchase a home!

You truly are an excellent agent.

  Many agents I work with as a foreclosure listing agent don't protect their client's interests but you do and still manage to work through the obstacles to get the deal closed.  

Stacy G. (An REO Agent)

"Thank you for everything you have done for us over the past several months.

Not only did you sell our old home within 2 1/2 weeks after listing it in a soft real estate market, but you were able to find us a new house with everything we wanted on our wish list, from size of house that was within our price range, to the upgrades and floorplan that fit our style and taste, and you guys even got us in our #1 desired neighborhood in Irvine! You have made this a stress free and worry free experience for us. We were so impressed with your professionalism and the excellent communications/status updates you provided for us every step of the way. Your market knowledge was remarkable and your honest feedback and recommendations helped make some difficult decisions a lot easier for us. You have superb negotation skills which I must say it is almost a lost art! I can go on and on about all the great things you have done for us, but I truly want to thank you for making us feel like we were your friends throughout the whole process. We will definitely recommend you to all our family and friends because we know that you will take excellent care of them, like you took care of us. Thank You!!!" Aaron and Mary, Irvine

As a first-time home buyer, it was such a relief to have Monique representing me and working on my behalf.

Even though I was extremely selective while looking for the right property, she went above and beyond to meet my needs. In the offer phase and during escrow, she skillfully negotiated to minimize buyer costs and was willing to answer any and all of my questions by phone and text. On top of her vast experience and wealth of knowledge, she is extremely diligent in all matters. I can't thank her enough for her help in getting me into my new home.

I have know Karen for a number of years and I have always told her, if I ever decide to sell, you're going to run the show.

Karen rocks and exceeded my expectation. On the scale of 1 to 5, I give her all 10's. First Team is lucky to have her as an associate.

Nancy was very processional, knowledgeable and there for me the whole way.

She put out any fires that came up promptly and professionally and kept me in the loop of any and all updates during the process with emails, texts and phone calls. Truly was a pleasure to work with and would highly recommend this true professional for anyone who expects 5 Star Service from start to finish!

Marina Leung is simply the best!

I met Marina initially when I came out to California for a job interview. She was extremely helpful showing me around homes and different areas. When I took the job, I contacted her to find a home to buy.This move was somewhat complex, as we were moving across country with three small children and had dates of when we had to leave Ohio and when we had to be in Orange County. I made two different trips in 2 months and saw houses over four days.We saw approximatelty 70 houses during this time. Each day was extremely well-organized which maximized what I could see and do. I never felt pressured and Marina was clear that we would not make an offer until I found something I loved. She was open to finding a rental if necessary. As Marina got to know me, she clearly honed in on what I like and don't like and which areas would best meet our family's needs. On the second trip, it was clear that things weren't clicking. She suggested looking in North Tustin, a place with which I was not familiar. I immediately liked the area and found a home that same day. During negotiations, Marina was meticulous. She had an excellent handle on what the property was worth and what was a good price. She knew every detail of the agreement and easily caught some things that were overlooked. Marina was always available and clear in explaining options and providing recommendations. It was a somewhat unusal transaction for a variety of reasons and it is a near miracle that we closed escrow and moved into this great house.It is clear to me that most other agents would have abandoned this transaction but instead Marina held it together. Ultimately, despite several problems (mortgage issues, move in date disagreements), all parties left the deal happy. Since moving in, Marina has continued to support us and helped us as we establish ourselves in the area. I wholeheartedly recommend Marina Leung for any real estate transaction. She is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, meticulous, and dedicated. She also has many amazing connections in the area and has been a great friend to our family.

We were so lucky to find Dean & Monique!

Our first home buying experience was not a pleasant one so we were not looking forward to selling that home. Our first meeting with this dynamic duo wasn't filled with empty promises and unnecessary flattery. It was a balance of honesty, sincerity, professionalism and respect. We wanted to sell and get the best price but I was also one of those emotional sellers who kept thinking about how this is the only home my children have known. I can tell you how hard Dean & Monique worked to put together beautiful promotional material and advertise our home by knocking on doors. I can tell you how wonderful they were in keeping us in the loop of what was going on, returning calls/texts right away and working around our schedule. I can tell you how awesome they were in getting an offer on our home in less than 2 weeks. But what meant the world to our family was that they listened when we said we would like to stay in our home until a certain date because my son wanted to spend one more birthday in the only home he's ever known. Don't get me wrong...Dean & Monique aren't all about unicorns and rainbows. They are skilled and experienced realtors who will fight for you and represent your family to get you into your forever home and celebrate many birthdays. Thank you Dean & Monique!

Mission Viejo, CA Just bought a beautiful home In Palmia, Mission Viejo and must thank and give all the credit for a successful process to our real estate agent, Linda LaPlante.

Linda had helped us four years earlier find a rental and we never forgot just how wonderful that experience was. She outdid herself with her tireless efforts to find just the right property for us to call "home". We looked at countless possibilities and she was with us every step of the way imparting her knowledge, experience and insight. We are so very grateful and appreciative for all she did to ensure we had a very happy conclusion to our search. You will be hard pressed to find a more experienced and tireless agent than Linda. Many thanks Linda!!!

Karen was amazing.

The property was not even listed yet but because of our situation she reached out to the homeowner and negotiated with him so that would be able to rent the home before it even hit the market. She was professional and in constant communication with us the whole time. She was friendly and very knowledgeable of the area so that we got a fair and reasonable deal

Roger and Terri Beers

Carole is the absolut best.

She worked so professionally with the other party who made mistakes and made promises he never remembered. Carole had tough clients (us) to place. She stayed focused and followed through. Carole is honest and always a pro. Carole is awesome and we will sing her praises for years to come. Thank you, Carole Mancini!

Frederic and Victoria Topping

When you are thinking of moving, the stress can become overwhelming.

You want someone helping you who has 'your' best interests in mind. Someone who asks you what 'your' looking for, and what 'your' needs are. That someone are Lisa and Jeff. They take the stress out of finding a new place to  live. They take their time, and never waste your time. They won't be satisfied until you are. They will continue looking with you until you find exactly the place you are imagining in your mind. It seems like so many people in the world today are trying to take advantage of everyone else. Not with Lisa and Jeff. They sincerely are thinking about you. So much information to digest; so much 'stuff' that sounds like some other language to the rest of us, Lisa and Jeff make it easily understandable. They treat you like family. You can't go wrong choosing them to find your next rental or home purchase.

"Cathy did an amazing job working tirelessly to sell our home.

She sold it quickly and at a good price. And, she did this while we were in the process of moving 3000 miles away. Cathy was professional, caring, and always working to get us the best possible results. Cathy is the best real estate sales agent we have ever experienced - and that includes agents from quite a few transactions as well as meeting additional agents at open houses. Please wish the buyers happiness and good fortune. And ask them to take good care of the house we raised our family in. It was a great house (and community) for us. Thank you so much, Cathy!!!".

JP and Mary L

Gene provided us a very smooth service throughout the process.

It was a real pleasure working with him. He went on explaining the whole process to us during the sale process, what was needed or not needed. He keeps it straight and to the point, which makes things easier. If there is any escalation due to any reason, he would jump on it immediately and detail us about it. Overall, excellent service! Highly recommend him for buying or selling real estate!

Rudy Mehta

Dear Xuhong, we would like to thank you very much for helping us purchase our home!

As a friend and a realtor you tirelessly and patiently helped us find the affordable house we like and professionally guided us through the negotiation, inspection, and purchasing process. Not only did you do what is to be expected from a good realtor, you also went the extra mile to provide us with the additional help and resources. We really appreciate everything you have done for us. Your wisdom, hard work, and kindness deserve a big thank you. The energy, optimism and experience you bring to the table showed us firsthand that you are an outstanding realtor. We can't wait for all the renovations to be completed, so we will be able to celebrate with you and your family in our newly remodeled house. Thank you and we wish you a bright future in your real estate career!

Dong H. J.

We have been working with Rob for quite a few years now.

He is very professional, helpful and very likable. We want to thank him for his help.

Veena Rangappan

We had a great experience working with her, she is a wonderful marketer and her PR attract more clients , they have a great team to advertise and follow up with the buyers, her networking community is very valuable and informative , we had our land listed with other agents for several years, but as soon as we listed our lands with her we saw a lot of traffic of interested peoples and finally our lands were sold.

Sam Akbarpour

People are always quick to complain, but I would like to start your day with a praise report.

  One of your agents provided me with such excellent service that I felt compelled to let you know about her. This is just a brief note to augment my expressions of genuine appreciation for the time, consideration and quality of service I received from Sandi Griffo during my recent home purchase. Ms. Griffo provided exceptional service by keeping me informed every step of the way during the process and was the epitome of true customer service.  Her impeccable follow-up really eased my concerns during my home purchase, which to say the least, was not an easy process. Ms. Griffo offered thoughtful encouragement and demonstrated professionalism in obtaining crucial information and responding to my numerous inquiries in a timely fashion.  She listened attentively to my concerns and inquiries and went beyond the call of duty to ascertain information and explain until I understood the process.I felt quite fortunate to have such an outstanding and sensitive agent representing me as I completed my home purchase.  First Team Real Estate is well served to have Ms. Griffo as one of its agents.

Deloris Evans

Nancy is a consummate professional.

I will certainly work with Nancy again in the future!

Gary Kausmeyer

The best managers are the passionate ones.

They want to accomplish something great, they know how to make you see what the success could look like. Terry Le Clair in my eyes is one of the best managers I've ever had!

Ingrid Yankauskas

We recently purchased 2442 Aquasanta in Tustin, listed by Nancy.

The transaction went so well thanks to her promptness and knowledge of the community. Her service went beyond the transaction itself! After closing, she recommended us service companies that are so helpful for our family as we are new to the area. We really appreciate the experience and would definitely stay in touch for any future real estate needs.

Thi Dong

We have worked with the Zwolaks in the past so when it came time to move we reached out to them again.

With such a large purchase we were a bit nervous and it took us months to find the right place. Jason and Susan were with us every step of the way and really helped make the entire process more manageable. They really went above and beyond to make us comfortable and confident. Thanks to their patience and determination we finally closed on our perfect home at a great price and sold our previous home in no time at all!

Alex P

Rob is a very knowledgeable professional with a trusting nature.

His ability to stay focused on the task is unmatched.

David & Jeremy Hellier

Just wanted to let you know how grateful both Kathy and I feel about the great job you did on the sale and closing of the townhouse in Hampton Court in Orange.

  You were able to find a solid buyer and got us a great price with an unheard of five-day escrow, wow!  If people only realized how hard you worked at listing, showing and closing this transaction they would have a difficult time choosing another agent.  My rating for you is a TWO THUMBS UP!  Great job, Carole, and thanks again.

STEVE & KATHY GIRAUD

Murray and Amy were great to deal with.

I would highly recommend them to both family and friends.

Stoffel

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, ResponsivenessI am a fellow realtor in Northern California.

I had clients looking to relocate to Southern California and I put them in touch with Lisa and Jeff. They took SUCH fantastic care of my clients. They're responsive, knowledgable, kind, and incredibly easy to work with. They educated my clients (which was incredibly important since they were moving to a new area), and found them a house that made perfect sense from both a budget and a personal standpoint. I highly recommend Lisa and Jeff - anyone would be lucky to have their help and support!

Carli M.

its been a year since i bought my house here in irvine at the north park community.

first day open house was packed with lots of visitors, nancy was representing me as the buyers agent. i had close to zero hope on getting this house, it took her 48 hours from the time i gave her the go ahead to the time she got back with me about the news of me being the new owner. not exaggerating. enough said?thanks for your time reading this review!!i have been recommending her to friends and they all have only good to say about her and her ways of getting things done swiftly.

Sahba Dabiri

Nancy is professional, pleasant, caring, knowledgeable in real estate and rental needs, follows up promptly and has a great sense of humor (bonus).

She was incredibly helpful with our situation and looked ahead to meet our needs. She is also very thorough and efficient with documents and facilitating the transaction to flow smoothly from start to finish. Nancy is the example of five stars!

Bernadette Greif

Relocation can be a very stressful and scary time in a family's life, and it all begins with selling your home.

   First Team Real Estate made the sale of our home about as easy as it could be, mainly due to the outstanding efforts of Sandi Griffo. We knew when we first met Sandi Griffo that she was the right realtor for us because she recognized the things that made our home stand out and was very enthusiastic about the opportunity to sell our home.  She was also very personable and treated us like we were part of her family. Sandi kept us well informed during the entire process of selling our home, from listing our home, to showing our home, and inspections. She was ready to answer any questions that we had, and always made herself available to us.  In fact, Sandi was critical to helping us get through the final inspection. We would like to pass along our deepest thanks to First Team Real Estate, and especially Sandi Griffo for all that you did for us.

Clint and Lisa Wininger

Monique is easily by far the best realtor i've had the pleasure of working.

She 's very organizied and meticulous. Not only she goes above and beyond to help me, she treats me like family. With her help, i was able to compete against a cash buyer to buy the house i wanted. She also helped me sell my old townhouse above the listing price, plus saving me in numerous fees. i would highly recommend her to annyone who's seriousabout buying/selling a house.

Ching Wang

Tracy, worked very hard for us.

She never showed frustration with our indecision. She is wonderful.

Michael Wood & Asako Kanazawa

Jason and Susan Zwolak are amazing realtors.

They guided us so well through the process of buying our first home. We saw ten homes within our price range and specific needs, and they ended up nailing it with exactly what we were looking for, in a short time frame. Jason and Susan were available at all times for our many questions and answered them with ease. They were able to help us through every aspect of the process, and made everything very smooth. We appreciated their organized, professional demeanor, and also their good attitude and advice. We can't be happier in the home they helped us purchase for our family.

Mathew and Tammy Savage

5 stars is not enough for Lisa and Jeff.

Lisa and Jeff are extremely personable, knowlegeble about the market and were there to answer any of our questions night and day. We definitely wouldn't have been able to find our great home in Tustin Ranch without their help, especially since they were able to strike a deal with the seller's agent off market. They also used their contacts to figure out that our Community was VA approved, which the HOA didn't even know and we would have lost the house for sure if we had to go through the process of getting it approved. Having the right realtor makes all the difference especialy in a market like today and Lisa and Jeff are the best at what they do.

Jon C.

Jason and Susan helped me sell a home and now I am in the process of buying a home with them again!

Highly professional and responsible. As a first time seller, they walked through every single step and explained all the questions that I have for me. And now as being a picky buyer, they've been working really hard to find "the home" for me and we will be closing in a week! There is no need to mention all the 5 stars skills. They are just nice and reliable people that you will never regret working with them.

Jerry G.

I cannot give Adrianne Oranges enough praise.

She is a one of a kind gem. She is beyond professional,has great expertise, super responsible and demonstrated superb ethics.

Daniel Matranga

I first met Nancy Aynehchi when she sold my neighbor's home a couple of years ago.

When I decided to to sell my home to move into a senior living facility in Costa Mesa there was no doubt to ask Nancy to be my Realtor. Not only has she been the best at that (even during the Covid 19) she has become a friend and has helped me through the transition of independence to requiring help as my health has become more fragile. Several of my neighbors at my former home have also used and are using Nancy. She is the best. Linda K.

Linda K.

We first met Nancy three years ago when she helped us sell our condo.

And now she has helped us buy our forever home. She was great then and she continues to be great now! In these last three years, Nancy has essentially become family. We stayed connected and she regularly updated us on the real estate market, gave us information on the various neighborhoods we were looking at, and has really been a great sounding board and friend. We trust Nancy's point of view and knowledge of the homes in our area. She has been so helpful as we watched the market and decided we were ready to buy. When we found the house we were interested in buying, Nancy quickly went into action as she knew the house wouldn't stay on the market long. In the span of an afternoon, she contacted the selling agent, got an appointment to tour the house, and then worked with us on a strategy for making an offer. Sure enough, there turned out to be multiple offers on the house after being on the market for only four days. Our offer price was not the highest among the bidders and we used traditional financing (while others often make all cash offers in hopes of winning the deal). Despite this, our offer was chosen. We wholeheartedly believe that Nancy's superior real estate skills helped us land the house of our dreams! Nancy is a great realtor -- super responsive, a great communicator, truthful and unbiased. She helped us with every detail of the buying process and made our lives so much easier during what is normally a very stressful time. She caught errors in the escrow paperwork and was able to smooth everything out without any issues. Nancy also negotiated with vendors on our behalf (even vendors that the sellers had chosen) and got savings we didn't even know were possible. We really appreciate her diligence and attention to detail. If you're in the market to buy or sell a house, please consider Nancy. We highly recommend her! If we're ever in the market again we will 100% work with Nancy! She is fantastic.

"You guys are great to work with!

" Yves, Broker

At the time that I got so frustrated and already gave up on getting my dream home either for higher prices or not finding the one that really appeals to my taste and after many years and few realtors later I decided to not even put any more effort in searching again, that is when God decided to sent a little angel called Meriam, who at the beginning, because she is petit and very young vs her multi years experienced peers did not give the impression that she can help me realize that dream that I gave up on and all the previous realtor that worked with me also did !

!!! To my great surprise and in a record time she turned our life around and we found that house that we where looking for, for the last 10 years less then a mile away from where we live now !!!!!, not only that but she connected us to the right lender that made it easy for us to get approved for this purchase at the time were all other banks and lenders turned us away, she also had to deal with that attitude of ours "that we will never find that elusive house and that many other realtors tried before you and failed" which never fazed her and always kept that beautiful giggle and happy face of hers which was still sending us a message even after a long days of searching for nothing, " I don't care how long this will take me but i will finally get you in that house that you always wanted ".......Amazing attitude !!! I can't think of anyone out there that Meriam won't be able to help finding their exact needs !!! If she can help very picky people like us she can help ANYONE...... Thank you Meriam. Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.025M in Orange, CA.

DO YOURSELF A FAVOR and get in touch with Lisa and Jeff Anderson.

They will treat you with courtesy, professionalism, and the respect you would expect when dealing with Real Estate professionals. I bought my first house with the help of Lisa and Jeff after they came highly recommended from three different close friends who had worked with them on buying their first house. From my first meeting with them it was obvious that they knew what they were doing. They were committed to making the process as quick and easy as possible. First, they made notes on what my preferences were on location, budget, house size, and layout. Next they set up the email notification of homes and constantly sent me listings of properties that met my requirements as soon as they were available. I would make my selections and every time we would visit as many properties as we can. I loved that they had an organized approach that made our house hunting worthwhile and productive. I felt so clueless at times, but they took the time to talk everything through with me, and do any "hand-holding" I needed. They were always up front and honest, which I appreciated greatly.Lisa and Jeff only deal with quality people who carry their same kind of work ethic. Their network of contacts (loan officers, home inspectors, etc.) was just as dedicated to their responsibilities, making sure there were no hiccups in the Escrow process. I was impressed at how efficiently and smoothly they handled my paperwork and documentation.Lastly, they are just the nicest, most professional people, so easy to talk to--I felt like I could call or text them anytime for any small question I had. Even now that I have closed Escrow they have made it clear that I can call them for any further questions that come up. I would recommend them in a heartbeat. Polat, Tustin Ranch

Selling a house can be daunting, but Adrienne made it so much easier than I thought it could be.

She’s kind, smart, very organized, and super knowledgeable about what needs to be done to get the best price. She always prepared us for the next steps and did everything she could to make the process as smooth as possible. I highly recommend her!

Barbara W.

For those who read only the first sentence of reviews: Nancy is the best and you shouldn’t settle on anything less than that for one of the most important decisions of your life.

As we started our house-hunting, we had little hope of finding our house-to-be in the crazy pandemic-era real estate market—with the number of agents exceeding the number of houses. To keep the candle lit, we knew it was key to work with an experienced agent, so we put in a lot of effort into receiving referrals, looking on the web, and interviewing agents until we found Nancy. And I think our smartest and most important decision in the house-hunting process was to work with her. Now that we have concluded our home-buying process and can look back, I can most comfortably vouch for Nancy as experienced, professional, and patient. And what other quality in an agent are you looking for? Nancy is THE perfect agent every homebuyer should seek. She is resourceful herself and has a lot of resources at her fingertips, saving her clients a lot of time and cost during the search process. For example, as you are navigating through a house, if you have a question about a remodeling project or the appraised value of the house, she will quickly make calls to give you estimates. In addition, she has X-ray vision that sees through the house :) What amateurs cannot see, she will tell you about the house, say on the quality grade of the cabinets, flooring, and the used materials, typical problems associated with the age of the house, parts you would better renovate, replace or leave as is, etc. Although Nancy is a popular agent (evidenced by her web reviews and referrals), she will make time for her clients and is very patient addressing their requests. Nancy is an agent you can trust. As opposed to many agents we had heard stories about, Nancy is not the type pushing you through a quick purchase to make a fast buck. She is patient and holds herself responsible for her tips and advices. She is the type who has been in the business (and successfully so) for many years and cares about her long-term reputation and well-being of her clients. She will honestly tell you about the problems she sees in a house, and sometimes deters you from making an unreasonable offer on a house that isn’t worth it in her view. She knows the ins and outs of the game, and is experienced in how to make an offer and negotiate to the advantage of her client. Nancy has my strongest recommendation for anyone seeking a new house.

Sandi Griffo at First Team Real Estate has been an absolute pleasure to work with.

We've relocated 6 times and out of all our agents across the country, Sandi has stood out the most from a customer service level, professionalism and as the best agent we know. We were originally relocated from Ohio to Orange County in 2009 and to take advantage of the market and get adjusted to the higher prices we took our time shopping and we decided to lease for a year.  Sandi helped us get acclimated to the market and prices and made us feel comfortable in deciding on a lease.  After a year we were ready to purchase and Sandi was there to show us many homes that matched our criteria.  She was patient and always had our best interest at heart. We purchased a beautiful home in Trabuco Canyon and did extensive landscape and hardscape.  Once we were finished with our interior and exterior improvements in about 18 months we found out that we were being relocated again, this time to Florida.  The only agent my wife and I would consider was, of course, Sandi Griffo because of our past experience with her.  Again, dealing for the third time with our Real Estate needs, Sandi was extremely professional, well informed, kind and always had our best interest at heart.  She listed our Trabuco home and did exactly what she had presented to us in her listing guideline. Sandi kept us informed during the entire process of selling our home and we sold our home during the most challenging time of the home selling season, and that was during the holidays.  Sandi was able to deliver on everything she said she would deliver on and it could not have gone any easier. We would highly recommend Sandi Griffo to any of our friends in Orange County for any of their Real Estate needs.

Finding a place to call home is an important decision!

Finding Ashley was a blessing! She is amazing. So sweet and so professional. She is very knowledgeable. I know she will help us find the perfect place and I'm happy to know she will be there for us throughout the entire process! She is great!!

Karen did a great job of marketing and selling my property.

I appreciate her help and knowledge of the local market to get me a fair deal. She helped the escrow process move along quickly.

Jolynn M. Lysne

I had a pleasure of working with Nancy Aynehchi.

She's very professional, She has great knowledgeable about Real Estate, Most important of all she is a great negotiator.

Look no further.

Vida and her team are the absolute best. My husband and I have had wonderful experiences with every home purchase through her team. Recently we purchased a house with her help during the Covid- 19 pandemic. She provided us with a mask, hand sanitizer, gloves and just basically went above and beyond to keep us safe. Vida is very knowledgeable and has many years of experience. We cannot thank Vida enough for her quick responses in texts and emails. She’s always there to address any concerns we have. She continues to check in on us to see how our remodel is going. I love how she truly cares about her clients. When you’re looking to purchase a home, it’s very important to have someone who is on your side. Vida is just that person. We trust her wholeheartedly and will continue to work with her and her team in the future.

Cathy and Max were true professionals and a real pleasure to work with.

They were with us every step of the way, providing guidance and excellent customer service. Five Stars

Steve & Joan Carpenter

Karen is a wonderful Realtor who goes above and beyond.

She helped us tremendously with finding our first home and negotiating for us to get our offer accepted! I will truly recommend her 110% as your agent, I have never heard or worked with someone like her, besides being our agent she become our friend. Thank you so much Karen for being there every step of the way. We can’t wait to work together again in a few years when we're ready to find our forever home 😊

Elizabeth Carmona

Max Carr is great to work with.

He took the time to understand what we were looking for, sometimes learning things about our preferences that even we didn’t know. He then translates that understanding into a portfolio of homes that fit our lifestyle. He helped us find our dream home in the first week of searching. He also put together a strategy to leverage our strongest bargaining position for getting the best deal possible. Max is always available and responds quickly to our calls, voicemails or emails. And he continued helping after the sale to make sure our lender had everything ready to go. Throughout the buying process he served as advisor and confidant. We will definitely use him again next time we buy a home in Orange County.

Bill & Brenda S

WE FOUND OUR RETIREMENT DREAM HOME!

  When we called Debbie to find us a property in OC, we could not even imagine how different the properties are compared to those in Chicago. Debbie understood our taste and what we were looking for right away. It took us a couple of months and only 2 trips to find several communities where we could retire. Finally the property came out on the market for the price we wanted. Debbie took care of everything and was always available when we had questions or concerns. We feel fortunate to have Debbie as our real state agent.   When we had to lease this property, Debbie found us great tenants in less than a week.  Thank you Debbie for your honesty and all your hard work.   Boris and Izabella Tashlitsky  

I think Heidi is very professional and has a good knowledge of the market.

I always enjoy working with her and will do in the future.

Mitra Kaveh

Carole is very knowledgeable and very professional.

She is very helpful in guidance all the way through the Process and very nice to talk with. Also understands me and the market. I recommend Carole to everyone!

We worked with Martin and Laura on the sale of our home in Irvine.

We interviewed a few other well known agents in the area but found Martin & Laura to be very knowledgeable and easy to work with. They explained us their entire sales and marketing strategy in detail and patiently answered all our questions. Martin took care of all the minute details of making our house ready for sale. This included, but not limited to, coordinating cleaning, painting and any repairs that were needed prior to putting our house on the market. Laura was in charge of staging our home to make it more attractive to buyers. Their professional photographer did a great job showcasing the salient features of our house. As a result, within the first 4 days on the market, we received multiple offers. Martin negotiated the offers to obtain the best price and sale terms. The property sold ABOVE asking price and closed escrow in 14 days. Throughout the sale process, Martin kept us apprised of the progress and made sure timelines for contingencies are met. We're extremely satisfied with the results achieved. If you are thinking of selling your home and need an honest, hardworking and responsive agent, look no further and hire Martin and Laura. They are the best, they know the area well and will sell your home quickly.

Dear Mary Kay, You never hesitated to make yourself available.

  You kindly sacrificed your personal time, late evening or weekends.  You brought calm assurance & grace and sensitivity to the emotional aspect of selling our home.  We sincerely appreciate all you did on our behalf.  It was a pleasure and comfort to be in your very capable and caring hands.  In addition to your obvious competence with all aspects of the real estate process, you bring something extra.  A kind and generous spirit.  With heartfelt gratitude, Dick and Eula P.

Max showed remarkable skill when negotiating the price, repairs, and credits toward the house, saving us over $35,000!

My husband and I decided it was time to sell our first home, and find our forever home (one that could fit our dogs and growing family!) and we were so fortunate to have Max with us throughout the process. Their strategy for selling our home was unique and incredibly effective. Upon our first meeting, we were provided with all active listings and recently sold properties in our area, helping us narrow down a competitive and reasonable list price. At our first open house, they hired a taco cart to provide all visitors with as many tacos as they could eat, which resulted in a ton of foot traffic. Within 2 weeks we had received multiple offers and were in escrow after accepting an offer higher than we were expecting! When thinking about our forever home, my husband and I had very specific, but very different, needs and wants. When searching for our new home, Max showed incredible patience and flexibility. We received daily email updates showing new listings that met our criteria and the duo always made time to show us the houses we were interested in. It was clear that Max had our best interest at heart, not pressuring us into a home we didn't love, and not letting us settle for less than exactly what we wanted. With their help, we were in escrow on our dream home in no time. He walked us through the entire escrow process, every step went off without a hitch, and we were able to close escrow early. We would recommend Max and Cathy a thousand times over, to anyone who is looking to buy and/or sell. You won't find a better team out there.

Madeleine M.

We have now worked with Cathy on 3 transactions.

..2 times as the buyer and 1 time as the seller. Cathy is a consummate professional who brings a high level of skill and strategy to table. In both cases as the buyer, we went into multiple-offer scenarios and came out on top because Cathy spent time to understand the seller's motivations and then shape our offers to stand out (in ways other than just offering top price). With the sale of our house, she poured the full weight of her resources into pre-marketing and a grand open house, and we sold after the first weekend! Cathy is attentive, diligent and responsive when you reach out to her. All this AND she's a really nice person. We highly recommend Cathy!

Jason & Allison Pacourek

Jackie went above and beyond what she said she coulkd do.

Within 3 days my house was sold for 52K more than the asking price.

Joanne France

My fiancé and I are blessed to have met Dean.

I know that sounds dramatic but it’s absolutely how I feel! We are first time homebuyers and went to an open house without having a realtor or really having any knowledge of the home buying process. Dean was showing the house and was warm and friendly right off the bat. We ended up not being insterested in the house he was showing that day but he still wanted to continue a working relationship with us. From the start, Dean delivered on what he promised us and went above and beyond our expectations. Being first time buyers, we needed patience and guidance every step of the way and Dean provided that with genuine enuthsiasm. Our budget was modest and I believe many realtors would have given us minimal attention due to that but with Dean we were treated as his top priority even though I’m sure he has many other clients to make happy. I plan on recommending Dean and First Team to everyone I know that’s looking to buy a home. Thanks again Dean!

Over the years, I have purchased and sold six properties.

I was represented by Murray and Amy Faulk (M&AF) on a buy, and years later, a sell transaction. None of my transactions went as smoothly as the two I did with M&AF. They are truly pros. On the sell side their ideas and preparation are awesome and effective. On the buy side they know what is important to the buyer and protect their interests. On either side, their follow-up and anticipation of issues can’t be matched. I do not hesitate to recommend them nor would I hesitate to employ them again! Thanks Murray and Amy!

Simpson

Murray and Amy were great to work with.

They gave us great advice throughout the selling process and we were very happy with the price we received and how smoothly everything happened. We would highly recommend them again for anyone selling their home.

Martin and Laura are highly experienced in the real estate field.

 I've known them for seven years and recently had my property listed and sold by them.  Honest, hardworking, and will treat you like family. I highly recommend Martin and Laura to anyone looking to sell property or purchase property. You can't find a better team in all of Southern California.

I have worked with Nancy for the past 20 years for my real estate needs.

She is very knowledgeable and professional. She makes sure the transactions go through very smooth. I trust her 100%. You will be very satisfied with her.

Jackie is AMAZING!

!! She is always prepared and answered every single one of my questions (and I had a lot). She always kept us updated and promptly responded to anything we wanted. If I could choose one person to recommend to everyone I know, it would be JACKIE!!! She clearly knows what she's  doing, and is the best out there.

Jessica Whitman

For 8 years I've known Ms.

Vickie, and been doing all my refinancing with my 2 properties (of which one was bought from her), I find her a great & respectful realtor. She knows what she's doing, she guides you to the right & proper way of handling your real estate needs and she's always there to help. I will rate her to the highest level.

Anrym

she is wonderful in every way.

Responsible, Responsive and delivers results of the outmost quality every time. you will not find a better agent

Ali Rashidi

Not many houses are available for rent in August, there was no chance to negotiate something about the house rent.

We have on-going issues with toilet water leak & paint delamination of bath tub, hopefully she still can do the follow-ups until they are fixed. Definitely she is very friendly and nice, hope to have a chance to work with her again.

Jackie has gone above and beyond to assist me in selling my property.

I live outside of US and it is difficult for me to locate local people for repairs. Jackie knew all the right people. At one point she actually painted part of the wall herself just so we can move on with the sale. If that is not above and beyond I do not know what is! She is a gem and First Team is lucky to have her in their team. If you need your property to sold, she is the person to go to! No wonder she also received a reward this year for her customer service. Thank you Jackie for all you have done for me!

Tamara Wright

I highly recommend Martin and Laura.

They are not only very knowledgeable and professional, but were extremely detailed and focused in meeting our needs. They walked us through every step of searching, negotiating and closing. Most important, they made sure we understood every single step and every paper we signed. They are proactive and responsive. Martin and Laura are a great team. My family and I were fortunate to meet them. They made it very easy for us to purchase our home.

Javier Posada

We were very lucky to have Laura and Martin as our agents for our first home.

They guided us with great patience through this complicated short-sale process. They are very professional, working as a team and always on top of things. We would highly recommend this enthusiastic and friendly couple. Thank you, Laura and Martin!

WE FOUND THE HOME OF OUR DREAMS!

 When we called Debbie to help us find a new home, we had a list of "must haves."  Debbie not only helped us find the perfect home, she made sure it had EVERYTHING we were looking for--a true dream house. In addition to finding our new home, Debbie also found the perfect tenants to lease our townhouse.  We never could have imagined such a smooth transition without her help. Thanks Debbie!! The Wiegand Family 

My wife and I decided to sell our family home of 17 years but because of COVID I did not want to market the property in public as I did not want too many showings.

After discussing the sale of our home, we decided to contact Nancy because we knew she has a great list of investors and potential buyers. Within a few days, Nancy found us a perfect buyer and helped us through the whole process, from A-Z, without any complications. We closed escrow on our house in less than 30 days. My family and I have decided to use Nancy for all of our real estate needs moving forward. I do not think we can find anyone who is more professional and knowledgeable about real estate than her. 10210 Boyd Drive, Tustin, CA 92782 Khaled N.

I actually already wrote to Sandi regarding my awesome experience in working with her and her selling my condo.

Sandi is the ultimate professional who recognizes what a person needs before you even know yourself! I appreciate Sandi so much - she has integrity, she is honest and she helps a person calm down when things are feeling so crazy! I would refer Sandi to my friend in a heartbeat!

Marla Loffelmacher

I had a great experience working with Nancy for the purchase of my first home.

She was a great help from the start to the end, answering every question I had throughout the process. Despite the housing market being extremely competitive with lots of cash and high-down buyers, Nancy was able to get my offer accepted for my dream home. If you need a real estate expert that you could trust, do not hesitate to contact Nancy. I would definitely work with her again in the future.

SAGHI SOROORI

I cannot put into words how thankful we were to have worked with Vida.

From the very beginning, she was just on top of EVERYTHING. She is very knowledgeable about the real estate market and she was helpful in any kind of question we had and advised us in the best way. She is responsive and professional. Her commitment and hard work is evident every step of the process. Her thoughtful demeanor also results in a pleasant transactional experience. Vida is definitely someone you are looking for to buy and sell properties and get advice! :) Cannot. Recommend. Her. Enough.

Avi Azar

I highly recommend Mary Kay Barnes as a realtor.

She is knowledgeable about the market, competent in every facet of the business, highly professional and responsive, helpful and personable, and she exceeded my every expectation. Thanks Mary Kay for everything! You are the best!   Sally L.

Adrienne is very personable, professional and has depth and breadth of her craft from living her life in Real Estate.

She is always there for me and is flexible and helpful in all of my transactions.

Therese Tibbits

Thank you to a world class realtor!

  You were able to get me a home that appraised for $40K more than what I paid, got the seller to pay all my closing costs and then even got them to agree to do repairs when they had indicated that the property was being sold ?As-Is?.   You are truly a cut above most realtors.  

Lisa C.

Hi Dean,I wanted to write you and it's up to you if you want to relay this information to your buyers.

I want to express my appreciation and gratitude for writing such a professional offer on behalf of your buyers.  You did an incredible job representing them as people that sincerely wanted to purchase our home of the last 5 years, and that we are sad to part with.As you may be aware, we had three offers, which were all strong, and some had higher down payments.  However, my wife and I knew before the open house that we were more than likely going to accept your client's offer, and that we felt that you did such an excellent job you earned the deal.  The listing agent also relayed to us that the buyers also reminded her of my wife and I when we were younger, starting out and buying this home, so we were excited with that as well.I hope your buyers find joy, can love and take care of this home as we have built our family and lives together.  I'm looking forward to a smooth transaction and making some buyers happy just like we were.Sincerely,JeffSeller of 33 Trailing Vine 

I have known Martin & Laura since 2017.

They assisted me with the sale of my home. During the sale process, they guided me through repairs, cleanup, and staging of my home, resulting in multiple offers within a couple of days of listing -including a cash offer above my asking price. Marting has been helping me find the right home for my family since 2017. He is extremely patient and I admire his no-pressure approach. Recently I found the house I wanted to buy, Martin worked tirelessly to get my offer accepted at the price I wanted to pay. Needless to say, he is an assertive negotiator who works with his clients whether you want to buy or sell your property. Laura, on the other hand, works behind the scenes reviewing and processing all the paperwork for the purchase, making sure all timelines are met and nothing falls through the cracks. They have the experience and knowledge to handle complex transactions. In short, Martin and Laura are a great team! I will recommend them to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home.

Asim L

With my less than stellar financial state, I never imagined that I could own my own home, but Marina made it all possible!

Whenever I can, I give out referrals for her to others looking for a realtor.

Kimberly Chung

We placed our home on the market during a very challenging time for us financially, and for the housing market in general, as well.

We could not have asked for a more professional, committed, savvy, honorable, communicative real estate agent, nor for a finer human being than Mary Kay, to help us travel through a difficult time. we are grateful for her, and would always speak of her with the most glowing review and recommendation! ~ Robyn & Stephen W.

Heather is very knowledgeable and professional in the job she does.

Communicates well with her clients.

James F. Hill

Maria was amazing!

She was so helpful and was always available to help with any questions we had!

Jackie did an excellent job finding a house we absolutely love when we first moved to Orange County.

Jackie knew how to put us In touch with all the people we needed and always when above and beyond. When I buy or sell my next house, I will be using Jackie..

Sean Benner

Martin and Laura have sold three of my homes, helped me find tenants for rentals and found a rental for me personally.

 They are a great team.  Martin deals with the various buyers, sellers, agents, subcontractors, legal issues and financial services companies and is great at negotiations and trouble shooting.  Martin is a financial whiz.   Laura does all the marketing and keeps all the behind-the-scenes work running smoothly and on time so that escrows close on time.    She is very efficient and professional.  I have known them for 15 years and hope to work with them another 15.   I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Buying a new home can be an overwhelming experience so selecting the right person to represent us was key.

We called Maria. Maria prioritized and managed the entire process which made the experience seamless for us. Maria is proactive. She is very knowledgeable, diligent, detail oriented, responsive and truly cares about her clients and protecting their best interest. She was patient with us and always available for questions and always quick to problem solve any issue. Maria provided us with the guidance and information we needed to purchase our home with confidence. When the time came, Maria helped us submit a competitive offer. We were one of seven offers submitted and our offer price was $10,000 lower than the highest. And we won! In large part because of Maria. Everyone loved working with her because she was so professional, helpful and reliable. I would without reservation highly recommend her.

Jackie Brajevic

"Who could ask for anything more".

...from the moment I met Lisa and Jeff I felt very comfortable. As a Marriage and Family Counselor I recognized that this husband and wife team had a good "vibe". They proved their worth from beginning to end when they sold my condo before it went on the open  market, saving me the hassle of an Open House and people coming in and out. They went the extra mile providing me with names of movers, etc. and even helped me stage my home using my own furniture....and continued to be available throughout the process. You can't ask for better than that!

MLBenn2

We worked with Martin and Laura on the sale of our condo, and the purchase of our new home and we couldn't be happier with their service!

 The sale of our condo was a tricky process and their persistence and expertise made it happen.  When shopping for our new home, we never felt pressured by them and they always provided their honest opinion to help guide us through the process.  Martin and Laura are both incredibly responsive and were always willing to provide an explanation on something we didn't understand.  I have already recommended them to friends and will continue to do so! 

A.W.

Murray was always professional and places this clients needs first.

He is prompt in returning calls and always give you straight answers. I would recommend Murray to my friends looking to purchase a home.

Linsky

From Melissa regarding the sale of her Aunt's condo.

.. I can't thank you enough!!!!  You made the closing of my Aunt's condo one of the easiest things I have had to do so far!  Yes, it was emotional and difficult in meaning, but you did an amazing job and handled everything taking such a weight off of my shoulders.  I will be forever grateful!  Accolades to you for a fine job. I am blessed my Aunt was receiving your newsletter....giving me clues to call you!  It was meant to be, and I just can't thank you enough!

If you are looking for a real estate agent, Kim Sarnecky is the realtor for you.

We sold our house in three days after receiving multiple offers and getting more than our asking price. She is extremely professional, personable, and detailed oriented. She helped us stage our house and her photographer made our condo look great. During escrow, she made it a point to meet with the appraiser and point out all of of upgrades and present current comps in the area. The appraisal came back for the full sale price.

Bryan and Jennifer Bean

If you are looking for a realtor that will make buying or selling your house an absolutely worry-free experience, then Murray and Amy Falk are the answer for you.

We have had a long experience with them as they first guided us six years ago to buy a condo in Woodbridge, then 10 months ago to sell our main residence in the Park Paseo, and finally this month to sell the same condo. This time, the situation was a little different as we had already moved out of state and were a little worried on how we would make it work from far away. Well, Murray and Amy stepped up right away to the task and it took them only 10 days to prep the condo, install new carpet in bedrooms, set up staging, take professional pictures, create and print colorful brochures, list the condo on many sites, and present a pristine property during a 2-day open house. All their hard work was immediately rewarded with high interest from many potential buyers and a final offer above asking price. From there, everything went really fast. Murray opened escrow immediately, a few days later a notary came to our house in Houston so that we could sign all paper work without even going back to Irvine, and 30 days later, escrow was closed. Whoa, what a breeze, everything went so fast, smoothly, and without complication. Well, that is the way we perceived it from our living room in Houston, just because Murray was the one doing all the work, multitasking with the buyer’s realtor, the loan company, the escrow company, and keeping in touch with us many times a day. Murray outperformed in all aspects of the transaction. His extensive knowledge of the market is spot on. He is an excellent negotiator with all the parties involved, and he communicates all pertinent information immediately. We highly respect his professional advice that is always well documented, and communication with him is always polite, pleasant, and prompt. Thank you Murray and Amy for your loyal services during those many years, we will miss you,

Nancy had sold many homes in our community over the past several years and gained a reputation as an extremely knowledgeable and fierce advocate on behalf of her clients.

Our area of Orange County has been a very hot market for many years and her extensive experience and extraordinary commitment guided our neighbors to excellent outcomes. Selecting Nancy as our realtor was an easy decision. Shortly after we listed our home, the real estate market started to shift and this is where having a realtor of Nancy’s superior level of professionalism and background really made a difference for us. She expertly guided us through the challenges of an uncertain market, ensuring the best results for the sale of our home, not only relative to price, but looking out for us through the escrow process. She saved us considerable time and money in escrow because of her attention to detail. There is no substitute for an experienced, professional and confident realtor – which describes Nancy Aynehchi perfectly.

William and Janet Huston

I met Becky at her open house in Laguna Hills.

She was very personable and had good knowledge of the area. I haven't done any business with her yet but will for sure consider her should the need comes up in the future.

"Lisa and Jeff have been the best realtors I have ever worked with.

They are both efficient, friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is selling their home. Their customer service has been above and beyond my expectations. They have sold two of my homes and helped me in the purchase of another. Working with them has made the sales process very easy for me." Lisa, Baltimore, MD

I cannot speak highly enough of my experience with Jimmy Kim.

I was new to the Lake Forest area with very little knowledge about how to find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. From the moment I met Jimmy. He made me feel welcomed and appreciated. He is very professional, personable, efficient, honest, determined and has a vast knowledge of all of the aspects of the business and locations. His communication and negotiation skills are top. Everything was straightforward and well explained without any last minute "surprises". The closing was quick and everthing went so well. I just want to say to Jimmy, He went above and beyond for my family during our home purchase. Thank you so much and if we ever need anything you'll be the first we call.

Gayong Jung

What a pleasure it was working with Jason, his helpfulness & patience was outstanding, this was my first experience with house hunting and Jason went out of his way to assist me.

I had a million questions and he was able to make me feel comfortable with all my decisions. I would highly recommend Jason to assist in anyone's house hunting experience.

J Miller

When it was time to sell my house, I had to choose among 3 realtors, including one I had used in the past.

I decided to go with Sandi because she was the most knowledgeable and professional. She knows Irvine extremely well and that makes a difference. She helped to stage the house so it looked outstanding, hired a professional photographer, and watched out for every little detail. She was always available and her communication skills are superb (clear and with fast responses). She provided help with reasonable and reliable contractors to fix small things in the house. Bottom line, the house sold in 5 days at list price. I move every two years, and I am very familiar with the buying/selling process. Sandy was definitely the best agent I have had when selling my home. Thank you Sandi.

Christian Jones

She lives in the same community.

Has a very nice personality Highly recommended. Thank you Karen

Adrien Sebestyen

We have known Gene from making rounds in our community and has always been friendly.

When we decided to put out house on market, we called him without reaching any other agents. He was responsive and took care of everything for us from the big issues to tiniest items. He guided us through the way, got competitive contractor quotes and supervised all re-model work himself. He made it a very smooth experience to sell our home and we would work with him again in a heartbeat. Best thing about him is that he knows this area, neighborhoods and key people to work within places that have HOA. Big thumbs up

Carole, is very caring great to talk to and knows how to get through all the paperwork.

I enjoyed working with her and would love to in the future.

Charles Romero

Tracy,  Meeting you at that open house in Lake Forest last January was one of the luckiest days of my life.

Not only did I get to meet a wonderful person and a good friend, I got to meet a terrific Realtor! Thank you so much for everything you have done to help me find the perfect retirement home. And thanks for everything you are doing to help me find the perfect renter. Please accept this small token of my appreciation for helping me find my perfect, "forever" home. Gratefully, Patricia  

Patricia D

Jackie is very professional.

The entire transaction was handled without pressure. She gave good recommendations about staging and marketing. I had multiple offers within a few days on the market above our asking price. There were a couple of problems that came up with termite inspection certification and she assisted me in handling them very efficiently. This was the fourth house that I have sold and the transaction was certainly the smoothest. I would recommend Jackie without any reservation

Jeff Simons

Monique brings her experience and savvy to guide me thru the rental process.

She worked tirelessly in planning and supervising the renovation of my rental property: replacing kitchen cabinets, replacing carpet with wood floors, painting ceilings/walls. She's done everything superbly. I appreciate having Monique as my realtor and as my friend.

The Chu Irrevocable trust

Meriam did a great job overall, I am happy with her performance and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a good realtor

Alfred Adib

Gaylene found the perfect home for me and my family.

She took time to understand our needs and budget and worked tirelessly to fulfill all of our wishes. Purchasing a home is daunting but with her guidance and patience we made it through the process unscathed. I recommend Gaylene whether buying your first home or your tenth.

Jayne Cubos

Lisa and Jeff Anderson continue to demonstrate strong working knowledge of the market, plus great skills, and wonderful client service.

Having known them for years (and I live out of state) they ably set accurate expectations when we did decide to list our property. All recommended vendors,  including the excellent staging service, were reliable and reasonably priced. Any buyer or seller would be well represented by this talented team. Thank you, Lisa and Jeff Anderson!

Judi D.

She is great and sweet.

She helped me with my last tenant and worked out really well. She was referred by one of my tenant few years ago, since then I kept contacting her whenever I needed.

Jacob and Phenomena Chan

When my husband and I decided to start a family almost twenty years ago, the idea of homeownership excited us.

Of course, life happens and priorities begin to shift quickly. With every passing year, the enthusiasm began to fade and the idea of purchasing our very own home seemed impossible, until something remarkable happened. When Marina first came into our lives at first glance it seemed like any other encounter. However, we soon realized it was far from it – we were meant to meet. It was this encounter that changed our lives forever and she is undoubtedly the reason we own a home today!  It is a fact that purchasing a home can be nerve-wracking. My experience was no different as this is part of the natural process. However, I felt a tremendous sense of trust in Marina and the team she assembled. She made sure to educate us along the way, guiding and mentoring us through the process while still allowing us to have autonomy over our decisions. She was sure to present us with every possible piece of information and scenario, even if it meant long dinners, late coffee meetings and the occasional deep, soul searching pep talks. Marina made me feel safe. I knew she had my family’s best interest in mind – always!  Marina was no longer just our agent, she became a member of our family. 

Jenny Z.

🏡 Nancy Aynehchi of First Team Estates continues to amaze us with her extensive knowledge of real estate and expert negotiating skills, making our latest home purchase such a “short and sweet” deal, with a 20-day escrow and a phenomenal price!

!! Nancy always goes above and beyond the call of duty, offering her assistance whenever she can to help alleviate the pressure and stress home-buying produces. Her advice and follow-through has always been “on point.” Nancy is not only our “personal” real estate agent, who we are already referring to family & friends, but has become “family” to us! Nancy Aynehchi is THE BEST!!!♥️

Pastors Troy & Darlene Vaughn

Murray and Amy are lovely people.

I have lived in my house for over 27 years and ages ago I knew that when the time came to put our house on the market that Murray would be our go to guy. We did not need an interview process, that is how sure and confident we were in Murray handling the sale of our house. He's the best. I always recommend him

Jacque Kopec

Vida helped me sell an investment property.

She came to our first meeting enthusiastic and well prepared, and every interaction I had with her after that was the same. She proposed an efficient sale process, arranged for the staging and photographs, gave me good and thoughtfully critical advice on finishing the house. The sale went very well–she brought in 9 offers, all way above asking price. I can’t wait to work with her again.

Khashayar Vahidramezani

What a pleasure to work with Nancy, so pleasant, so polite and so honest.

I can't say enough about her. I have worked with many other agents and she definately tops the list, always available, and ready to work for my best interest. She was there for me everyday and I really appreciated her time and effort. Take my advice and give her a chance to represent you, you will not be sorry. Thank you Nancy for all your hard work.

Rona Farnum

Max assisted my wife and me in our search for a home in Orange County, CA.

Throughout the process he brought us fresh ideas to consider, helped us explore options we might not have discovered on our own, and demonstrated expertise and understanding of real estate practices and the geographies in which we were searching. He was proactive without being pushy and always responsive to our inquiries and requests. Our search for a new home was lengthy and frustrating, including complex issues that led to a protracted escrow and a series of ongoing negotiations. Max was patient and resourceful in keeping the process moving forward and maneuvering around daunting obstacles. After we completed the purchase of our new home Max represented my wife in the sale of her previous home. He marketed the home effectively with other real estate agents using a variety of formal channels and personal networking. He identified well qualified prospective buyers and was able to sell her home quickly, above asking price. We recommend him without reservation.

Doug S.

Grace did an amazing job listing and selling my home.

She is a true professional and very capable in all aspects of the listing to sale to closing process .

Jeffrey Carter

Jason and Susan Zwolak were amazing to work with!

Being a first time home-buyer and not having much experience in the field, they literally took my hand and guided me the entire way. I could not have asked for a better experience with Jason and Susan when it came to their professionalism and honesty. Issues arose along the way, out of our control, and they were always prepared and ready to tackle any issues. They were very patient with me and my experience and always had suggestions or advice to guide me in the right direction. Jason and Susan would answer all questions and made themselves available by phone, text or email. I will gladly recommend Jason and Susan to anybody who is looking to buy, or sell, a home.

Kathy P

We’ve bought and sold other properties, and worked with some good agents, but Jason and Susan are definitely at the top of the list.

  They were honest and forthright, and it was obvious they always had our best interest in mind.  We loved their responsiveness and consistent communication, and also the great referrals they gave us to other professionals such as escrow, and even a geologist.  They were super friendly, and they made the process stress free and fun!   

Jane & Woody Barnes

Adrienne is extremely professional and knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.

She seems to genuinely enjoy working with people and helping them with their real estate needs.

Lisa and Jeff .

..How should we start to explain the relationship we have or how it started?Let's begin with how it started for the sake of chronological list of events.They were highly referred to us by my wife Claudia's work friend. Even though I have never met that friend, I should be thankful for causing us to meet them.At that time me and my wife were engaged and getting ready to get married. We met with them for the first time and explained our needs and wants in our future house and tried to give them a feel of our timeframe. Since we contacted them literally three months before the W-Day, we were not very hopeful to be able to find our house before we got married. But we were hopeful. After seeing several (or several hundreds of) houses. We knew what we wanted better. Boy o boy were we so off from what we started from. It took their kind directions for us to realize that. At that time we thought it was us evolving or our thoughts evolving but now I know that we were being illuminated.Finally we found a house we liked a lot in a community we loved. There was a house or "THE" house we like in this community that actually made us look into other units in the neighborhood. "THE" said house was on escrow and had a pending offer and on top it all was even higher priced than our highest of the highest limit. So we thought if we can get this house we can make it work and make it look more like the house we liked. One thing we could not do or make was the view of the "THE" other house had. We were "FINE" (sarcastic) by this.We were not even looking for townhouses at the time. We were told by our friends and family that townhouses especially since they share a common wall with other units and they lack the backyard that a single house would provide, would not get much Return on Investment. At least that's what we thought we knew.We made the offer on the house that was available and we came really close going into escrow when the seller pulled the house from the market. We were really sad and the wedding was getting closer, now we had exactly 2 months and Claudia almost made her mind that we should cease the house hunting operation until after the wedding. This is exactly the moment when Lisa Called and said that there are three other units available in the same complex and we should go and take a look at them that day.A little reluctant a little saddened by the recent experience (since it was my first house, it was very emotional for me) we met with Lisa. She showed us first the other two available house which we did not like as much and finally "THE" house. Yes "THE" house we loved fell from escrow and was available, back on the market but it was not even mark as so yet. We looked at the house and made our decision right there and then. We wanted the house.We could not even wait for us to go home and them to prepare the paper work for us to sign and present the offer. We did not have to. Lisa knowing us so well came prepared and had three sets of offers printed two with two different prices printed and one with no price. We even ended up using one of the ones she put the price on and everything was in motion that moment.We got our house exactly one month before the W-Day and moved in within 2 weeks. We got married in our new house. Hosted all of our family under the same roof and eventually got our two precious babies in "THE" house.But this was not the end of our relationship with them. On the contrary it was just a beginning. They pretty soon became a part of our family. They were there to celebrate with us on special occasions, like birthdays and our baby showers and eventually our kids' birthdays. They have become Uncle Jeff and Auntie Lisa for them.We introduce them to our friends and within time 4 other friends of them got their houses with their help. Every single one of them were extremely happy with the experience and we all keep recommending them to our friends.Almost eight years after we purchased "THE" house we had to move out of state and we needed to sell the house incredibly fast and move on to our new house in our new state.We did not hesitate on asking our friends Jeff and Lisa's help to sell the house. I personally might not agree with all their decoration choices I followed them to the dot. We put "THE" house on market and we had multiple offers in four days and we sold our house in record time. So fast that we did not have a house to move into yet. But still good since our friend who purchased her house with their help had a lot of extra room. And the icing on the cake was we have sold the house above asking price and to the highest price in the community. All thanks to Lisa and Jeff.It had been almost 4 months since we moved out of CA and I finally had the chance to sit down and write some heartfelt for our dear friends Lisa and Jeff. I know we are in different states now but our hearts will always be together.Best of luck in everything you do.

Devrim & Claudia

There are not enough fabulous things to say about this woman.

She a dynamo in action. Filled with expertise, she is knowledgeable about everything real estate oriented.........whether you are buying, selling or renting. I would (and have) highly recommended her to many people. She has won every award possible in real estate. The woman never sleeps! You will be so happy you chose her as your realtor.

Daniel Matranga

My experience with Dean Erickson, an Agent from First Team Real Estate, has been excellent!

I met Dean by chance as he was walking in my neighborhood attending to other clients. We started an informal conversation where I mentioned I would be interested in selling my condo in the future. Our relationship became friendly and he would stop by once in a while when he was in the neighborhood, and we would chat about my plans. With absolutely no pressure, he patiently walked me through the process in case I decided to go ahead with the sale. When the time came to sell my condo, I did not hesitase to work with Dean. He has done a superb job and sold my house in the time I expected. I felt comfortable, trusting and I am very happy with his work. He is a very friendly and professional individual.

Silvia Molina

She is very professional and the home selling process was very smooth.

She has the technical knowledge and expertise to sell a home. She is one of the most caring real estate professionals in my Rolodex.

Chris Teng

We had been searching for properties for quite a while.

Upon dropping by one particular open house, we met Mr. Martin where he listened to our preferences, and had just the right property to show us. We loved the property, and immediately began the escrow process with Mr. Martin as our agent. A home-buying process, aka escrow, is nothing like going to your local grocery store to buy milk, a very intense process where professionals do their part in finalizing the transaction; Mr. Martin and Mrs. Laura guided us throughout this process, making it very simple, answering our questions, sharing their expertise and knowledge, and we finished the closing much sooner than expected. Today, we live in a property that brings us peace and happiness, and we are grateful to Mr. Martin and Mrs. Laura for their utmost professionalism and prompt management of our property buying process. Herewith peace of mind as a priority, we recommend Mr. Martin & Mrs. Laura to be your real estate professionals, especially here in southern California.

E.S.

Lisa and Jeff's work on behalf of the client is outstanding.

Demonstrating strong knowledge, sheer hard work and discipline, and superior communication skills, they are true client advocates! Thank you, Lisa and Jeff, for your guidance on our Tustin Ranch property!

Laura Driscoll

Meriam is amazing from all aspects, understood my needs, she is very knowledgeable, willing to drive anywhere, helped me with my loan, and was always willing to help even though I initially told her that I may end up not buying anything ( I did buy eventually ).

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Ontario, CA.

We have worked with the Zwolaks in the past so when it came time to move we reached out to them again.

With such a large purchase we were a bit nervous and it took us months to find the right place. Jason and Susan were with us every step of the way and really helped make the entire process more  manageable. They really went above and beyond to make us comfortable and confident. Thanks to their patience and determination we finally closed on our perfect home at a great price and sold our previous home in no time at all!

Alexandra & Cameron Deines

He was the only reason were able to purchase our first California home and forever great full to Murray and Amy.

I met Nancy Aynehchi while looking for a place to rent.

She was very friendly and knowledgeable. I appreciated her quick responses and attentiveness to the process. I would highly recommend her for what ever your home needs are (renting, buying, selling).

Amberlee K Taylor

Adrienne Oranges has been my buyer’s agent since I met her while looking for the right place to live in Irvine CA.

 She has an encyclopedic and in-depth knowledge of the Irvine and surrounding area. She has been a consummate professional that I feel really cares about my home purchase experience and keeping the process as smooth and as transparent as possible. When we have encountered snags in the process, she has been key in working out the issue. Yes, I would recommend her and would ask that she work with me again should I ever need to sell this home or buy a new one. With gratitude, David Peterson

David Peterson

We were blessed to have been put in contact with Rob.

He is by far the most responsive realtor we have ever worked with (and we have worked with a few over the years). From the moment of introduction til the final papers were signed. He always made us feel like he was available to answer questions, give professional advisement, no matter the day or time. We never felt like we were a bother or like we were not priority. He listens to our cues and was able to ascertain our wants and preferences and then assist in helping us to find the best home with our needs and wants. So impressed. As painful as looking for a place to call home is, we were actually sad when it came to an end as we enjoyed our experience of looking for homes with Rob so much. Very professional; very responsive and very respectful!

Dakota Stoute

Hamoudi Ellaham

Marina made all our experiences easy and very pleasant for us.

She went above and beyond a realtor’s responsibility and made us feel taken care of all the time. She got the best price for our property, more than we expected, and most importantly, she listened to our desires. My family and I will always go to Marina for our real estate needs and I will not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs anything real estate related.

Arnel and Genevieve Casanova

Mary Van Diver

This letter is in regards to the outstanding customer service that we received from Gaylene Rice.

She demonstrated the highest degree of ethical professionalism in the industry as well as being an absolute pleasure to work with. When my husband and I were relocating from Bakersfield to Orange County, Gaylene met with us to show available properties. She was always on time and well prepared with copies of the listings we would be viewing and even had snacks and water for us if needed. Her knowledge of the neighborhoods and the surrounding areas that we were of interest to us was very helpful in making our final decision to purchase a home. My husband and I would highly recommend Gaylene to anyone interested in buying or selling a home and we would gladly work with her again in the future.

Myrth Boozer

Jackie was absolutely instrumental and very professional in helping us purchase our property.

She was always quick to respond to all our inquires. She was extremely patient as we went through house after house that we did not like. She had our best interest in mind.We would highly  recommend her. Thanks again Jackie for all your help

Monique Vang is a very experienced real estate agent.

She listens carefully to the wishes of the tenant and tries to find the perfect house for him. Once the perfect match is made, she spares no effort in making sure the house is in impeccable state when the tenant moves in. I would highly recommand her.

Rein VC

I recently sold my house.

I thought it would be difficult and stressful. But then I met Martin and Laura Uribe! I cannot praise them enough.They are professional, knowledgeable, thorough, trustworthy, patient, polite - and much more. They went above and beyond to make the sales procedure easier for me. Martin would explain every document I signed - and explain again if asked. He arranged our meetings close to my present home to accommodate me. He kept in frequent contact. Laura and Martin together did a fantastic job of making the house and grounds appealing to buyers. Martin even put water in the pool when needed so I didn't have to make an 80 mile round trip several times a week! Were my expectations fulfilled? Yes - over and above! If you are selling your house, I highly recommend Martin and Laura Uribe of First Team. Definitely Five Stars!

MAVIS CRICK

It was my first time selling a house and Heather helped me every step of the way.

I had lots of questions and she was very patient with me. She did an excellent job staging my home for the listing photos. I hardly recognized the place! Overall it was a great experience and I was able to get top dollar for my home.

Michael Bhatanawin

Mana was extremely personable.

She knew exactly what I was looking for. She also made sure I was involved and understood every aspect of the home buying process. Thanks to Mana I now own my first home!

Mike Trazi

Overall, Nancy has been a wonderful and very professional listing agent for our lease property in Tustin.

From start to finish, Nancy has always been great in terms of preparing the home for listing, informing us of the progress, answering our questions, finding good potential tenants, and preparing all the essential documents for the lease. Whenever we had a question or a comment she was already a few steps ahead of us with either the answer, solution or was already solving the problem for us. SHE IS AMAZING. I would gladly recommend Nancy to anyone who is interested in buying, selling, or leasing properties in Southern California. You will not be disappointed.

Lydia Bai

Janice Konkol and I have been working together to find a house for almost 4 years.

She is tenacious, grounded in her knowledge of real estate and the surrounding markets and an optimist in finding a home.

Janice stayed with us while we moved through many real estate purchase decisions and never gave up on us.

She was professional and committed and focused on understanding our needs. She was great!

Caroline Coronel

After working with previous realtors with no house to call our own, we found and turned to Jackie.

With her expertise, her negotiation skills, and her willingness to learn who we were and what we wanted, we were able to land our dream home in a matter of a few weeks. I would recommend her to  friends and family who are looking to find live in the Orange County area. She knows the county in and out and we look forward to working with her in the future!

Mary Kay made the process of selling my home and buying my new home a breeze from start to finish.

She is professional and helpful - and offers a wealth of information and easy suggestions to ensure the best presentation. The open house events were so successful and she helped sell my house within a very short time frame. One of the qualities I appreciate is Mary Kay's responsiveness to questions or concerns. She was there for me 100% and she gets my highest recommendation. - Denise L.

I just closed on another property having Ms.

Nancy Aynehchi as my real estate agent. This was my 9th or 10th closing with her. She is very commited and dedicated. The fact that I can trust her 100% means a lot to me. I am hard to please but in her case, I have always been pleased beyond my expectations.

Dan Kalili

Cathy was amazing in the sale of our home.

  We had hired another agent and were very unhappy.  When the listing expired we hired Cathy who did all the right steps to market our home and we ended up with an offer that was $130,000 higher than the only offer we had when we were listed with another agent a few months before.  In addition we got the offer the first weekend we put the house back on the market with Cathy. If you are looking for a great realtor that can truly make a difference, look no further than Cathy.  

Michele M

Karen definitely went above and beyond to make sure the transaction went smoothly.

She clearly cares about her clients.

Grace Family Settlement

Great and friendly professional in the business!

Fernando Gonzalez

Best experience in working with Nancy on buying and then selling my property for me.

She was very helpful in getting the property ready for sale, since I was living out of town during the entire process. She made this experience very easy and pleasant. I would recommend her to anyone.

shahin riahi

To whom it may concern: My wife Lou Wanna and I just want to express our pleasure with the job Grace Tu did selling our home in Irvine.

She is very pleasant and was very easy to work with during the entire process. In addition to obtaining top dollar, she did a wonderful job of marketing our property and attracting potential buyers to our home. She held frequent open houses and made every effort to sell the property to a well qualified buyer. She was also very responsive and quick to return messages when we had questions or issues. She did a very good job during the escrow period making certain everything that needed to be done was done so properly and promptly. I would highly recommend you consider selecting her to be your agent when you consider selling or buying a home.

Harold Katz

My family and I would like to sincerely thank Nancy for her excellent service showing us homes that matched our criteria and family situation, and for helping diligently along the way (from contract to closing).

Nancy is very knowledgable about the neighbourhoods, and very organized so she saved us lots of time and effort. While she shared her professional experience, we never felt pushed by her. She truly treated us like her own family and was there for us, always on-time and accessible, each step of the way. Thank you so much Nancy!

MO NA

Murray and Amy are good friends of mine and when it came time to sell my house I knew where to turn for a great realtor.

They are the best in the biz and I also used them to find an interim rental and then to help me purchase my forever home. The whole selling then buying processes were easy breezy with this team.

Kopec

Ethel is a committed and determi ed realtor.

She is so experienced and able to offer a lot of guidance and suppot as well as energy and enthusiasm - and determination!

Nadine Segal

Nancy has been an exceptional agent to work with.

She is extremely prompt, sharp, and a great communicator between all parties. I've sold multiple properties with her, and purchased multiple properties with her. Every transaction has been smooth and easy. A true pleasure working with Nancy, and look forward to doing more business with her.

Robert Younesi

WE FOUND THE PERFECT FIRST HOME!

  The most important thing about Debbie is her patience and ability to achieve her clients' goals.  As first-time home buyers, we had no idea what a deliberating process we were getting into and it didn't help that our tastes and desires seemed to change daily.  But Debbie navigated and mentored us through our home buying experience like a pro -- and always with a smile on her face.    Thanks Debbie ~ Sam and Tatum Hawkins  

Gaylene is what all real estate professionals should aspire to be.

She is exceptional at EVERY aspect of the process. This was the first experience we had with selling a property, and I am so thankful I was able to navigate this with Gaylene. At every step of the process, she made me feel like I was her only client - so responsive and transparent in everything she does. In addition to her expertise about the market and the area, she also has a wealth of resources through her connections that made the selling process easier and more efficient. She genuinely cares about you as a client and makes you feel valued and important. If you want to work with the best and reach your goals in selling or buying a property, Gaylene is your person!

Christine Lusareta

       Phoebe is very detail oriented, patient, qualified real estate agent.

She represented as a seller, listing agent in my case. She handled selling my house very smoothly, saving a lot of time, definitely no hassle. She was willing to take extra effort whenever there was some issues during the process. I definitely recommend her as your future agent either for purchasing your dreaming home or selling your real estate.

Jackie was absolutely amazing during this entire process.

Since this was our first home, Jackie was patient and listened to exactly what we were looking for. She was very knowledgeable about the south Orange County area and gave us an overview of each area, from Irvine to Laguna. We had an  extremely short turnaround time since we had just moved from New York City, my wife was 6 months pregnant, and we were living out of hotels. Jackie narrowed the home search to a few perfect homes, and eventually helped us find the exact one we wanted, secure lending, and close escrow all within in 30 days!!!! Yes, 30 days!!! Not sure how it could have been a better process. Once we moved in, Jackie brought over a house warming gift; literally, she gave us a wonderful outdoor heater for our back patio, which we loved. I would absolutely recommend Jackie and look forward to calling her when we purchase our next home.

Jason Abdullah

Jackie helped my wife and me purchase, and also a couple years later, sell our first family home.

She was very proactive at all times and always had our interests in mind. Jackie was frequently contacting us with possible properties to look at and then with potential buyers once we were ready to  sell. I highly recommend working with Jackie on any home sale or purchase as the whole process was seemless and exceptionally positive for us. On top of everything else, Jackie truly cares about her clients and puts them ahead of any purchase or sale transaction alone.

Kevin Melanson

Janice is extremely knowledgeable and honest.

I respect her and trust her judgment. We always feel comfortable in her company. She respects our input, as well. We will recommend Janice to all of our neighbors and friends!

Charles and Lucila Dakin

We have worked with Heather for years and it’s always surprising how fast she handles our business.

She knows the market and our properties rent and sell with ease.

Alison & Mike Hooker

We have worked with Martin and Laura for several years.

They have generously assisted us with the sale of two properties and the purchase of our current home. Whenever we have a question about real estate, they are always a text message or call away. No matter how simple the question, they are available and willing to take the time to explain and reassure. If you are looking for a professional team to help you buy or sell your home, Martin and Laura are great Realtors. They are very knowledgeable, responsive, and resourceful – an amazing team! We highly recommend Martin and Laura!

Robert and Jeanette Morrow

Found Carol Kornievsky in a search on the Web, met with Carol, were very impressed.

She is a great agent to work with from beginning to end. Sold our property in a week. Her knowledge of the market, paying attention to detail, follow-through, being a person who takes action, and her connections with other service providers all blended into a great person to work with / represent out property for a very successful sale!

Steve Rockey

She was so friendly and worked hard to help us get into a place we loved!

Thank you Karen!

Sarah Spies and Kymberli Crossen

Bought a Townhouse home in 2019 in Woodbridge, Irvine, CA.

She does care about her work, which is helping you to get the right home with the right price. I highly recommend her to anyone. Thanks so much, Carol!

We were so lucky to find Dean & Monique!

Our first home buying experience was not a pleasant one so we were not looking forward to selling that home. Our first meeting with this dynamic duo wasn't filled with empty promises and unnecessary flattery. It was a balance of honesty, sincerity, professionalism and respect. We wanted to sell and get the best price but I was also one of those emotional sellers who kept thinking about how this is the only home my children have known. I can tell you how hard Dean & Monique worked to put together beautiful promotional material and advertise our home by knocking on doors. I can tell you how wonderful they were in keeping us in the loop of what was going on, returning calls/texts right away and working around our schedule. I can tell you how awesome they were in getting an offer on our home in less than 2 weeks. But what meant the world to our family was that they listened when we said we would like to stay in our home until a certain date because my son wanted to spend one more birthday in the only home he's ever known. Don't get me wrong...Dean & Monique aren't all about unicorns and rainbows. They are skilled and experienced realtors who will fight for you and represent your family to get you into your forever home to celebrate many birthdays. Thank you Dean & Monique!

Susie C.

This letter will serve as my very high letter of recommendation for Real Estate Agent Nancy Aynehchi.

She assisted me with the sale of my home in Irvine as the listing agent. I have worked with many real estate brokers and agents on several real estate transactions over the years and can say with confidence that Nancy is the best agent/ broker I have ever used! Nancy has the qualities that make her an extremely successful and effective agent. I can’t say enough about her professionalism and knowledge within the industry. She has high integrity, is very conscientious and tenacious, always keeping the client’s best interests in mind one of the qualities I respected the most was her no- nonsense, pragmatic style. As a busy executive, I don’t have time to waste. She gets to the point quickly yet professionally, always respecting the client’s time. She does a great job of listening to her client’s needs. She does research to assist with assessing a fair market value of the property for the sale and then negotiates effectively with the opposing broker/agent on behalf of the client. She is extremely responsive to questions, often responding immediately to my late-night/weekend emails. She shows great attention to the details enabling the transaction to get done, smoothly and on time. As mentioned above, Nancy represented me on the listing side of the transaction. I also would not hesitate to recommend her as the purchased agent as well. She has long industry tenure, is savvy, current on today’s dynamic market conditions; and that is key for transactions that can sometime become complex. I have the highest level of confidence in her and feel she would be able to properly assess any situation and figure out an effective solution.

Lisa Slim

Dean was one of the first Realitor's that I felt was fighting for us!

He was able to negotiate a great deal that was accepted immediately. We were very happy with with the communication and quality of his service. He was so detailed and organized that we were able to purchase our home while overseas! We decided on the house based on his judgment and videos. We trust him and would be happy to recommend Dean to any of our friends or family. Thank you Dean!!!!

Jessica Baerwolf

Linda LaPlante is a wonderful real estate agent!

I chose her because she had closed so many homes in my area. After the first phone call, I knew she was the one! She is very caring and understanding of your needs and timeline, she will be there to meet with you as many times as you need to see her. She is a good person and you sense that right off when you meet her. She staged my home beautifully, the photos were amazing and she was there every step of the way! We were in contact almost daily it seemed and I have gotten to know her since and will recommend her to others as well. Thanks Linda for everything!

Susy Lee

My name is Desiree Ryan, First Team agent, working out of the Dana Point office.

I have a listing in Huntington Beach that I'm trying to find a buyer for. Terri LeClair, Manager of First Team Newport Beach office, welcomed me to plug my listing at his weekly office meeting for all his agents to hear. My intention was to arrive and bolt right after I told the agents of my listing. Terry quickly dove straight into his agenda for his meeting as I was packing up to leave and he caught my attention with one of his topics on “Simple ways to pick up new business through everyday life without trying”. I ended up staying through his entire office meeting and have applied a few easy ideas he offered to my daily routine. Thank you Terry for making me feel comfortable in your office and giving me fresh new ideas to increase my business with ease.

Desiree Ryan

Terry has been instrumental helping me build and improve my systems and business.

He has offered valuable insight, guidance and suggestions that have had a direct impact. Terry is very motivating and pushes me out of my comfort zone with positive results. He is available and accessible to assist when needed. Thank you, Terry!

Mike Farina

It was my pleasure working with her.

She is a very gracious, thoughtful and experienced agent whom I would highly recommend to my friends.

Yung Chi Kao

It was great to work with Nancy.

She is very professional, knowledgeable, and a go-getter. Buying a house with her assistance was a great and smooth experience. I highly recommend Nancy to anyone in Orange County - she gets 5 star rating from me and she deserves it.

Mary H.

1)     Phoebe Chiang and Theresa Wen worked together, and they both did an excellent job in handling the listing and sale of my aunt's (estate) home in Hacienda Heights.

From making suggestions on some renovations that appeal to the local market to following through on every small detail. Even helping to find appropriate contractors as needed. They professionally evaluated the property (they know the market), and listed at a fair market price, the open house generated over 20 written offers in two weeks, and the property sold at nearly 10% over list price. As an absentee Trust manager, I couldn't be happier..... everyone concerned was amazed at the preparation, communication, and strategy for timing the listing, and then the outcome. Phoebe (and Theresa) deliver top quality service and top results with expertise and grace. Highly recommended!!

Nancy is an experienced realtor who helped me purchase my dream home.

As a first-time home buyer, I needed detailed explanations for every aspect of the home buying process, and Nancy was able to provide all the information I needed to make the right decision in buying my home. She went through all of the numerous disclosures with me so that I am well-informed of what I am signing for in the transaction. Nancy also would meet me at the house with contractors to help me with what changes I need to make in order to make the home perfect. Overall, Nancy was a wonderful realtor to work with, getting my offer accepted when there are bidding wars going on with every house on sale. Nancy will be our family realtor from now on, and I will be recommending her to my friends, relatives, and colleagues.

"Thank you very much for your assistance and response.

You are truly and deeply appreciated!" Janice, Redfin Realtor

Mana was excellent.

She provided knowledgeable support and showed us the kind of properties we were interested in. We were very happy and would recommend her to others. Peter Rogers

Nancy Aynehchi is the best!

She did it again. consistency is the name of her game. she follows through and she is there when she's needed. we have done multiple flip deals with her and looking forward to doing it again. her knowledge of orange county and surrounding areas is off the chart and her ability to close deals is second to none!

Sean. S

Seven years ago, Laura and Martin helped us get our dream house through a challenging short sale.

Without their continued impeccable professional and emotional support, we would have given up a couple of times before closing the sale. Once again, because of Laura and Martin's professional and amazing managing skills we closed escrow on our first rental property last month. When possibly other agents would of walked away from our transaction, Laura and Martin saw us through extremely difficult obstacles imposed by the seller. Laura and Martin are defining example of a client-agent relationship, we trust that they have our best interest in mind. Get Today's real estate market data from Laura and Martin!

L. Holowko

Janice was amazing.

Incredibly hard-working, responsive, communicative, and went above and beyond.

Carrie L. Rosenbaum

Maxwell Carr exceeded my expectations when entrusting him to sell my home.

I did not live at the home fulltime so Max was always available to go the extra mile to ensure things were being maintained in my absence. We were asked if we could manage a 14 day escrow and with the assistance and help from Max the 14 day escrow went so smoothly! Max is dedicated and knows what the seller needs and wants while going through these transitions, but at the same time catering to the buyers concerns and needs. It is a rare find these days to find such a dedicated realtor! Thank you Maxwell!

Kim & Nick S.

MONIQUE is so tireless and always go the extra miles to lend a helping hand.

I get to know her because my son purchased his home in Irvine a couple years ago from her listing. When I am ready to purchase my own, her name came to me right away. This time by focusing on my personal need, she uses so called "common sense" to help me before, during and even after I move to my new home. I am so lucky to have her as my selling agent during the Pandemic. She is responsive and passionate about her work. Definitely, i would work with her again for my next purchase.

Emily Lo

Karen's responsiveness and her command of property information was very impressive.

Perhaps even more valuable was Karen's involvement and communication after the contract was signed all the way through the closing - and even afterwards. This is a second home purchase for us and Karen made us very comfortable with the selections made and the processes involved. We will definitely recommend Karen Kehetian and First Team Real Estate!

James F. and Jeanette R. Dunkerley

We had a great experience working with Martin and Laura.

Relocating to Orange County from the East Coast, the Uribe Team did a great job acquitting us with the area and helping us find the right neighborhood for our family. They were always extremely responsive, knowledgeable, and were a tremendous asset on our home buying process. We would highly recommend working with Martin and Laura.

Michael and Johanna Golias

Meriam was able to identify a home pretty quickly for me and the experience met my expectations.

I needed to move into someplace really quick and Meriam was able to clear some time for me to make a few visit that were pretty far away. Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $425K in Mission Valley East, San Diego, CA.

Murray's professionalism and expertise were instrumental in selling our house.

Thank you for being so helpful and patient in guiding us every step of the way.

Seo

Cathy helped me and my wife to buy a home in Irvine, CA.

I feel very happy that I decided to work with Cathy to buy my first home. As first time home buyer, I had lot of questions. She answered all my questions patiently and helped me every step of the home buying process. She is very thorough and explained everything when we are viewing the houses, submitting offer and the process after offer is accepted. She is very quick in responding to my text messages and emails. I will definitely recommend her to my friends. Obviously I will work with her again in future if I need help. Thank you, Cathy for your help and beautiful gift basket you sent to us.

Ram C

Nancy was referred to us by a friend when we were looking to sell.

It was our first time selling a house in a very long time! When we met with Nancy, we immediately felt comfortable with her and knew we were in good hands. She walked us through every step of the way to get our home prepared for sale. She listed, marketed, and sold our home at $15,000 over asking price. She made the process so easy for us thanks to her communication skills as well as amazing negotiation tactics. She is very knowledgeable about the industry in general and the local communities in particular. Overall, she is a professional and trustworthy real estate expert! We would highly recommend her if you are thinking about buying or selling your home!

Natalie Mitchell

Karen has helped us with several of real estate transactions for over a decade and again we asked her to represent us in the recent transaction.

We very much appreciate her excellent service and going above and beyond to deliver the best possible result in every single transaction.

Agnes Han and Danny Han

Jason and Susan are a fantastic team!

They have valuable insight and knowledge of what can be a very stressful situation - they helped us stay calm during the process of purchasing our new home! I can't recommend them enough!

Daryl S

I cannot say enough good things about Lisa and Jeff.

They were professional, thorough, excellent communicators and definitely went above and beyond for me. I live in another state and they handled the entire sale long distance without a hitch. They met repairmen at the property on my behalf and recommended service providers to install air conditioning, work on windows, etc.Jeff even swept out the garage! My condo sold in less than a day and I attribute it to their recommendations and hard work.They have my highest recommendation.

Michelle M.

My husband and I were lucky enough to meet Jackie at an open house that she was showing.

No other agent at other open houses took the time and effort to inquire about our needs to the extent that Jackie did. She was amazingly prompt at getting back to us throughout the entire processes of selling  our place , as well as buying our new home. She was honest, professional and VERY knowledgeable. We felt very comfortable with her and could communicate ( and at times whine) knowing she had our best interest at heart. And as my husband said " for a woman , she drives really well!" Anyone would be lucky, and pleased to have Jackie on their team. I highly recommend Jackie.

Cathy Haney guided me through the buying of a new home and the selling of the old.

Both transactions were completed quickly with minimal stress and greater than anticipated financial return. Cathy's knowledge, integrity, work ethic and excellent people skills make working with her a pleasure. I would highly recommend her.

Janice R

It is our pleasure to write this review regarding Nancy A's performance while helping us to sell and buy our homes in Irvine, CA She is very hard working, conscious and go getter.

She has a very good follow thru habit and attitude. Over and above, she treated us as her family. We would strongly recommend her to anyone thinking of selling or buying properties. We also wish her good luck in the future.

What sets Marina apart from other realtors is her unique sensitivity to her client's lifestyle.

She is unbelievably accommodating,  working patiently with our schedules and even our moods. Don't be fooled by her soft and calm demeanor,  she will go to battle for her clients. Her depth of knowledge transcends real estate.  She's also a great resource for all home related projects. We have used her expertise in buying,  selling,  and even renting a home,  and would recommend her to anyone. Once you work with Marina you'll find an agent for life. -- Sheherbano and Sadiq M.

Rob did way more than expected.

Selling one’s home can be a challenging process but with the help of the right realtor this process goes smoothly.

We wanted a realtor who can sell our home at the best price, in a timely manner and give us the personal attention we need. Martin and Laura Uribe were the right realtors for us. We were impressed with the way they presented themselves - very knowledgeable and professional and yet very personable. Those were the qualities we were looking for in a realtor and we were not disappointed. Martin explained the current housing situation, presented their marketing plan and worked with us in establishing our selling price. Laura on the other hand took care of the “soft side” of selling. She did the walk through of our home, suggested ways to de-clutter and staged our home in the most appealing way. With the help of their professional photographer, they were able to highlight the beauty of our home. The brochure produced to market our home was impeccable. With their marketing plan, our home reached numerous realtors and buyers. Open houses were held until they found the right buyer for our home. We appreciated Martin and Laura’s patience, availability, trust worthiness and most especially their expertise in negotiation. They made the sale of our home happen at the right time. If you are looking for the right realtor to sell your home, we highly recommend Martin and Laura Uribe. Give them a call. You will not be disappointed. R.A. Tustin, CA

Terry is the best manager I have ever had.

Terry has so much to offer and has such incredible knowledge of and experience in his profession. More importantly, he has a giver's personality and is always there for his agents. He calls, texts, and emails , and won't leave you hanging when you need direction. I am so appreciative of my luck to work under him and feel so fortunate to have him in our office.

1)      Phoebe just sold our home in Diamond Bar, California.

She held an open house before it went one the MLS and the house sold the first day for full price. Her negotiating skills brought the full price offer which I never expected. Before the home went on sale, she advised us how to stage the home best for prospective buyers and what updates to do that would return the greatest price. She knew exactly what needed done and supplied the names of people who could do the work at a reasonable price (she has very good connections in the community). All the neighbors who saw the house could not believe the transformation. We have had people ask to see our home even after it was sold because they could not believe how well it turned out. Throughout the entire escrow process she was there making it go smoothly. Anytime a difficulty arose she handled it well and kept the closing on track. Phoebe was always there when we called and always had the answer. She is a very knowledgeable and conscientious realtor. I cannot recommend her highly enough. You cannot go wrong contacting her in your quest for a thoroughly professional realtor.

She is a very efficiency agent, it was a great help!

My parent had listed their land with two different realtors but none was able to sell the property.

Finally they listed it with Nancy. Even though she was in Orange country and the property was in Los Angeles, she assured them that she knows the area and it’s not an issue. She sold their property in 2 months. She had no problem driving all the way to LA and show the property to the prospective buyers. We had a great experience with her and she handled all the paperwork in a very professional matter. I highly recommended Nancy Aynehchi.

Angela

Long story short, Gene did a great job selling our house in record time and helping find and buy the new one, all in a contingent manner.

As a realtor, his disciplined, process driven approach combined with a high level of transparency and honesty is exemplar. From the very first meeting he left a good impression. We quickly realized he is trustable (which he proved to be true), reliable and dependable. He moved both sell and buy processes with clear steps, helping us making key decisions at each stage by giving helpful information and good advice. With Gene we were as confident as we could be from day one, and together we completed the rather difficult, back to back sell and by job with the minimum amount of stress and confusion. He is a great agent, a great friend and a great guy. Highly recommended.

It was a pleasure working with Laura and Martin!

They have great synergy. They complement each other very well and are an amazing team. Between the two of them, there is nothing that is overlooked. They are detailed and goal oriented, and so knowledgeable of the real estate market. I had such a wonderful experience with Laura and Martin a few years ago that I chose them as my agents again. It was the right decision as they were able to get offers right away with their skillful marketing strategies. I was blown away at how quickly they sold my home. Buying or selling can be a stressful experience but they know how to work through the process so well that you can stay calm and comfortable. I have been on both sides with them and they did an exceptional job!

J. Yoshida

Out of any other agent I've worked with, Nancy was by far the best.

She was able to find the exact home I was looking for at a great price. My favorite quality of hers was that she was always on top of the situation throughout the whole process and kept me informed. Any time I asked her a question, she responded quickly and precisely with the information I requested. She simplified the process and made it easy for me every step of the way. Nancy truly looks out for her client's best interests and was just an absolute pleasure to work with. I can't imagine working with anyone else now and highly recommend her to anyone in the market!

Shawn Kooklan

Have known and used Janice for 25 years.

Always prompt with comps, returning phone calls, dealing with other agent or lender or appraiser or termite guy, very knowledgeable with an answer for any situation. Tried a FSBO on my own. Got more money with Janice even with a realtor fee.

James and Karen Bragstad

She is smart and helpful.

She always resolved our problem very wisely which we faced through our process and led us to the right tract.  Elda Goya.

It was an awesome experience with Vida!

Martin and Laura are a remarkable team and provide the perfect balance of professionalism with a personal touch.

We first met Martin and Laura back in 2012 when we were looking to sell our townhome. We actually interviewed several realtors and Martin and Laura came out on top by far. We had a lot of concerns and requirements and they were able to address each and every one of them to our complete satisfaction. Their motto of “Customer First,” ensured that we were comfortable throughout the entire process. It did take a bit to sell our home (but that was due to the stringent requirements of the property), but it was sold in 6 months at our original asking price. Fast forward a year, we were ready to purchase a new home and without hesitation we called Martin and Laura. Again, we had some very demanding requirements (not near railroad or freeway, built after 1979, remodeled, no pool, and most importantly, $/sqft. Explaining to them upfront that we were not in any hurry to purchase a home and could wait until the “perfect” home at the “perfect” deal came along, they trusted us and did not require us to sign any disclosures stating that we would only use them as our agents (as most all other agents will). The “looking” took over 2 years, and through it all, they were nothing but patient and professional. They sent us listings as soon as (and sometimes even before) it was on the market, worked with our schedule to see the homes, addressed our concerns on lead paint, asbestos, power lines, neighborhood, schools, etc…and if they did not know the answer, they gladly researched it. Martin and Laura were also extremely understanding when we pulled out of an offer simply because “we just did not feel right about the house.” They worked with the selling agent and escrow company so that we did not have to pay any penalties/fees. They reiterated again, that it’s our home, and it has to feel right, and we can just keep looking. We have recently closed on the “perfect” home. Martin and Laura have been nothing but amazing. The whole home buying process was daunting and very overwhelming. It was a true blessing to have Martin and Laura on our side during this process. Laura went through each and every page of the contract/agreement/requirements/disclosures with a fine-tooth comb to ensure the seller would pay for the bulk of the fees and changing language which would have been highly disadvantageous should there have been delays or other issues. She clearly explained and made sure we understood what we were signing before “signing our lives away.” Martin literally “babysat” all the vendors who came (termite, pest control, appraiser, etc.) to ensure they all did their jobs property and did not cut any corners to ensure our home was in good condition and would receive the proper repairs. He not only personally supervised one, but TWO home inspections (over 3 hours each!) to ensure every nook and cranny was inspected thoroughly. They even participated in the releasing of ladybugs and “making a wish” with our young daughter in the backyard to celebrate our new home and to help make the transition into a new home more exciting. Even after the close of escrow and the sale final, Martin and Laura continued to assist us in providing contractor/vendor referrals, follow up on pending jobs, answer questions, etc. The service Martin and Laura have provided more than exceeded our expectations of a realtor. We feel that the amount of time, dedication, attention, and care Martin and Laura provided us would have been the same as if they were purchasing their own home. In a day and age when customer service and basic work ethic are becoming a lost art, Martin and Laura are truly a rare find and a diamond in the rough. If you are even considering to purchase a home, we’d highly, highly, highly, recommend Martin and Laura to start you off on the process. They can help you figure out what’s truly important for you and your family, to narrow down the location/style/size/etc., and before you know it, you’ll be in your new home!

Sandi Griffo assisted me in the sale of my house in Lake Forest, and I must say she is the quintessential agent.

My best interests were always at the forefront of all she did as my real estate agent. Everything, from pricing and staging the house, conducting the open house, and closing the sale were done with the utmost care and professionalism. Because of Sandi's efforts, I received five full price offers and three additional offers above the asking price - on the same day! My house sold in less than seven days when the average sale at that time was took 30-60 days. Sandi has my highest and most enthusiastic recommendation as a real estate agent. When I buy my next home, Sandi will be the first person I call.

Jim Rogers

She is a pleasure to work with, she is a professional lady and knows her work.

She answers the questions you ask with a knowledge of market. I will recommend her to any body who wants to buy, sell or rent .

Mitra Kaveh

We have a special experience with Miriam whom act not only as just a real estate agent but she was like our guidance since we are counting on her to find for us our home we are livining in it while at the time we are looking we were in Illinois.

She is very reliable, credible and expert on what she is doing, we saw in her not some one doing just a job but some one doing something she loves and with great passion. I am recommending her to every one who really wants a hassle free service from A to Z. Helped me rent a home in Carlton, Yorba Linda, CA 92886.

We had narrowed our search down to three Real Estate firms we wanted to interview before we decided.

Nancy Aynehchi was the first realtor we had interviewed and explained to her that we intended to interview two more firms. Nancy did not use the "high pressure" tactic to use her. Following the interview, we were so impressed with Nancy that we did not even interview the other two firms. We called Nancy back that evening and signed the contract! We could not be more pleased with our decision to go with Nancy. This is a very knowledgeable and efficient woman who follows through on what she says she will do. She had a photographer out the very next day to take pictures and do the "virtual tour" of our house. Brochures were printed and sent out, as well. Our house was listed and sold the first day it was on the market. Nancy kept in touch with us every step of the way. We feel so fortunate to have found a realtor who truly looks out for the best interest of her clients. I could not recommend a better realtor!

Gary N.

As a realtor high school classmate of mine put it recently, Adrienne Oranges is a saint to have put up with helping us look for a home to buy for five years before buying one.

Adrienne obviously enjoys what she does as a realtor, and never faulted us for not having bought yet, even when a prior deal fell through due to house flaws undisclosed by its owner and selling realtor. Over our years working together she has become a valued friend of ours. We've recommended her to several others already over the years, and plan to continue doing so.

James & Ellen Stasma

Greg was very informative, knew of comps in the area, pleasant demeanor and responsive to questions I had and getting the necessary responses quickly.

Randolph Eric Baumanns

If you are looking for a home in Northwood the team Amy and Murray Falk should be your partner.

Knowledgeable, honest, fast, polite, only starts to describe the team. Thank you Amy and Murray for helping us to secure a beautiful new home and sell our old one.

Carsten Giessmann

I really appreciate that Martin and Laura are agents with integrity.

Through both my buying and selling experience with them I felt informed, updated, educated, and in good hands. I didn't feel the need to double or triple check things because I know they did before the documents even came to me. They concisely had my best interests in mind through both my purchase and sale of my home and were always there to keep the process moving and handle the stresses of the process so I wouldn't have to. Unless they retire, I don't anticipate moving to another agent due to their high regard for their clients and their desire to provide amazing service.

Nicole D

Vida was knowledgeable and understood my needs to sell my home.

She was on top of the what was going on in my local market and provided me with important facts about relative and comparable inventory. She was very responsive and always willing to go the extra mile. She not only used various marketing strategies to advertise my home but was always networking with various brokers. I would highly recommend Vida to anyone that wants there home sold or looking to buy a home. Thank you Vida for all your efforts....

Jill Harbuck

Jackie helped us purchase our home almost 3 years ago so when the time felt right to sell, it was an easy call.

She was responsive at all times, thorough in answering our questions, and advocated for us at every step.

Tim Allen

Jason and Susan are absolutely the most genuine, sincere and thoughtful people you will ever meet.

Jason uses videos and customized listing website so you can flag your picks and communicate with him directly through the website. Other realtors bombarded me with emails and pictures which made it difficult to keep track of. Jason truly listened and remembered my likes and dislikes and considered them in picking the properties to show me. I had a complicated finance situation and he partnered with me all the way to the end helping me come up with different options. He is very responsive and in most cases, he followed up with me rather than the other way around. He provides honest opinions and suggestions. I highly recommend this team, you will not be disappointed.

Julie P

We were absolutely thrilled with our experience working with Murray.

Before we even signed our sellers contract, he went over every detail of the plan of action, including walking our house to recommend small repairs or changes that should be made to get our house in the best possible condition to sell. It worked, because we got an offer 4 days after listing, and were in escrow 2 days after that. He kept us very informed each step of the way by sending text updates and emails. Personally, he’s just a very nice guy, and was very supportive when we shared about ailing parents. We highly recommend Murray to anyone looking to sell or buy a house. Mike & Erika Metz

It was my pleasure working with Nancy.

She is such a nice, experienced, responsible person. I think trust is the most important thing when you're working with a realtor. Since I was so busy with my job, she was coordinating with other people like inspectors, etc. She is also very knowledgeable that was describing me in detail each document I was signing. Always giving me her honest opinion about cons and pros of each unit/house she was showing to me. Not pushing at all. I remember, I was tried of looking new places, we walked a unit and I said, I think I cannot find anything better than this unit. She told me, daily sunlight is important for you, this unit doesn't have that much light, why do you want to buy it. I think If someone else was in that position, would have chosen different path. I'm sure in future I'll work with her again :)

Ardavan Marzban

Overall, Nancy has been a wonderful and very professional listing agent for our lease property in Tustin.

From start to finish, Nancy has always been great in terms of preparing the home for listing, informing us of the progress, answering our questions, finding good potential tenants, and preparing all the essential documents for the lease. Whenever we had a question or a comment she was already a few steps ahead of us with either the answer, solution or was already solving the problem for us. SHE IS AMAZING. I would gladly recommend Nancy to anyone who is interested in buying, selling, or leasing properties in Southern California. You will not be disappointed.

Lydia Bai

Murray is one in a million.

He understands his industry better than any other realtor we have ever met. He negotiated the best possible deal and fulfilled all our needs before we even asked. He went above and beyond our expectations.

Geel/Landry

Very polite very professional very knowledgeable and I will definitely use her in the future

Pamela Morrison Trust/Brandon Mendoza Trustee

Grace, I cannot thank you enough for the great service and help in selling my home so quickly.

You truly understood my need to move as soon as possible so that I wouldn’t lose my sanity with having to drive so far to work every day. I never imagined a realtor would help me with so many things to make my home look amazing and move in ready. You really went above and beyond the call of duty. You were able to get me a good price in a time when homes were not selling very fast and you helped negotiate so that my costs wouldn’t be that high. I am very grateful to you for everything you did for me. You are an amazing realtor. Thank you, Kristi Teske

Kristi Teske

Sandi helped me sell my house in Rancho Santa Margarita, and buy a new home in Fullerton.

The entire process for both homes from start to finish was complete within about 3 months. Sandi was extremely responsive and there to help and answer questions whenever we needed her. The same evening after we saw the home we wanted to buy, Sandi worked late to draft an offer, and we got the house! All of the paperwork can be daunting, but Sandi helped us get through it. I recommend Sandi to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Orange County! Steve Sloman

Steve

Beautiful job!

I am excited and still feeling a bit sick to my stomach over this. I have loved my condo and have been here and experienced a great part of my life here. On the excited part, I can't wait to be back home where I grew up and be with family I love. We are already planning on having Thanksgiving in my new home with all of my relatives. Lol. As my one cousin said, doesn't matter if you don't have any furniture, we'll sit on boxes. Haha Thank you for your calm and reassuring guidance, Sandi. When Pam and I visited 36 Monroe, we were just checking out the condo ....I did tell Pam that I was going to start interviewing Real Estate Agents as I wanted to have someone who I could connect with. Pam's advice was, just don't select the first person you meet. Ha!ha!. Well, there you were and I just felt you were the perfect person to get me through this adventure! There was no need to go through my interview process! Ha!ha!. You had me at "hello and welcome." 🙌 God bless you, Sandi. You are an angel on earth! Marla

My daughter started with Joan this fall.

I can not give Joan enough praise! She has been amazing and my daughter truly enjoys her teacher and mandarin so much. I'm amazed at how much she has learned in a short amount of time. It's very impressive. She has been instrumental in my daughters love of language. Such a great investment in her future. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn Mandarin.

We had relocated from out of state and was not familiar with Orange County at all.

Monique was one of our first point of contacts and was friendly and personable. She was extremely patient during the entire house-hunting process- we viewed almost 50 houses before shortlisting the area we were interested in. And it was close to another 40 houses before we found our "dream" home. Since she has been in the business for over 20 years, I found her to be both professional and extremely knowledgeable. She is also most thorough in her dealings with her clients. I trust her completely to follow through on the numerous little details to do with the sale of a home.

Daphne C.

Maria was very personable, friendly, easy to work with and as accommodating as possible to us as first-time home buyers.

She was easy to contact and always reachable whenever we had any questions. Her and Becky made the process for us as smooth as possible.

Marilyn

From the very first time we met Jason and Susan we were confident that they would find us just the right place.

First and foremost, they listened attentively to our wish list" and feedback. They never showed us a property they knew wouldn't be well-received, and consequently, a very high level of trust was established early on. Then, when the time came for the hard work of negotiating and closing a deal and moving through escrow, they patiently explained all of our options at each step, consistently providing relevant food for thought and guidance based on a wealth of knowledge and experience. Jason and Susan infused confidence into a process that is anything but intuitive. And last but not least -- they're really, truly nice people, with a level of sincerity that's off the charts." Tim Cheryl Forbes (Jason & Susan helped Tim & Cheryl buy a home in Aliso Viejo)

It’s been great meeting and dealing with Nancy.

Very professional and helpful. Helped us find a great place for my daughter and her roommate. She goes beyond expectations to make sure to help us. It was a pleasure to meet her and do business with her!,

Vivian Shokry

Absolutely amazing experience.

Although I had difficulties with the offer, lending and negotiating, Dean was absolutely amazing at all of it. Always ensuring I haven't missed anything and taking care of everything.

Benjamin Lo

Mana again proved herself to be a top real estate agent.

She helped me buy my first home in 2008 and 8 year later helped me sell it. Who says seller's agents don't do any work? She professionally staged our home so well that our children insisted on staying after seeing it. She was there at each step, meeting all the inspectors and contractors at our property during the whole process.

Suleyman and Sennur Turgut

We had the privilege of working with Max for our recent home purchase in Costa Mesa.

From start to finish, he was a pleasure to work with and very attentive to our needs. Before we got started on our search, Max recommended a lender and worked on negotiation strategies with us, which was helpful to set expectations. Ultimately, we were able to purchase our home for several thousand dollars under the asking price! Max then helped us negotiating some repairs, and pointed out some items in the inspection that they thought needed the seller's attention. This was so helpful because we ended up negotiating the home price even further and got those repairs taken care of. Max handled everything from paperwork to recommending contractors for our remodel, and even helped as a go-between for the remediation work that was done before we closed. Always prompt when meeting up and quick to reply back when we had a question, Max was truly there for us whenever we needed, day or night. We would do it all over again with him next time we're in the market for a new home!

Viviana G.

Dean was a real pleasure to work with.

He is very responsive, and always willing to look into a question or concern of ours. He is knowledgeable about the real estate inventory he showed us and was very professional and personable. Unfortunately, I had a personal emergency that is requiring us to put our move on hold, but we will certainly notify Dean when we are able to resume our search. He has taken the time to get to know us and get a true understanding of what we are looking for and I am confident he will be able to find the right property us.

Sandi Dibelka

Marina provided an excellent overview of the Orange County market.

We had hoped to purchase a home but circumstances shifted so that we had to rent for a year. She was most helpful in scouting out potential properties in advance as well as setting up appointments to tour these various rental homes. She accompanied us on the "hunt" which proved to be difficult because of low inventory and a competitive market environment. during the process, she offered great insight and feedback. once a lease was signed, marina communicated with the other leasing agent and let us know exactly what we needed to do. she gave detailed instructions and was always prompt in responding to any questions, concerns, etc. her main focus is you, the client and making sure that you are happy and fit happily in your new home.

Mikio and Christina Nihira

Nancy is one of the best real estate agents I have ever worked with.

I have worked with many agents in the past and none have provided the service I received from Nancy. Her marketing plan is extremely well planned, she strives to reach perfection for each stage. She is very responsive, regardless of the weekend, holidays, they respond to my emails, text messages right away. Truly enjoy working with her. Highly recommend her to everyone.

Majid Shahbazi

We met Monique Vang when we decided to purchase a house.

Monique is so tireless and always there to lend a helping hand and encouraging words. She listened and took care of all our needs.She is responsive and passionate about her work. She found our dream home and helped us with all our refinances. As of now my husband and i have known Monique for almost twelve years and during that time she has proven to be a person of high integrity. She has a very strong value and she is one of the very intelligent woman we have ever met. We are both pleased to call her our friend and we are proud to endorse her character and work.

"Thanks for the follow-up.

I have found many agents are not professional enough to reply." Bob, METRO Estates Realtor

Jason and Susan Zwolak are amazing realtors.

They guided us so well through the process of buying our first home. We saw ten homes within our price range and specific needs, and they ended up nailing it with exactly what we were looking for, in a short time frame. Jason and Susan were available at all times for our many questions and answered them with ease. They were able to help us through every aspect of the process, and made everything very smooth. We appreciated their organized, professional demeanor, and also their good attitude and advice. We can't be happier in the home they helped us purchase for our family.

Mathew S

Nancy was a complete professional from the listing thru the closing.

Her marketing and negotationg skills make her among the best of the best realtors. My property had been listed previously for 3 months and had 12 open houses and no offers. After lisiting with Nancy and 2 open houses we had the offer and the property closed on time and with no issues. If you are considering selling your home, talk to Nancy and let her do her thing. You will not be disappointed. While others tell you how great they are, she actually makes it happen!

Barbara Silver

I want to pay my sincere gratitude to Ms.

Mai for helping us in our home search. I met her during a rental home search and chose her to represent us in looking for properties that may fit our needs. She was always very prompt in responding to my requests. She showed us homes in a quick fashion which is helpful in this market. Ms. Mai has a friendly personality and she is a great communicator. I believe she would give honest opinions to anyone who works with her. I highly recommended her name for anyone searching for a property to buy or rent.

Meeta P

Love Jackie.

Worked with her in the past to purchase our first home, and wouldn't think of using anyone else to help sell our home. Jackie is professional and knows her stuff. Great transaction, very satisfied customers!

Heather is the best relator I have ever worked with.

Very responsive, results come quickly and she is always on top of the project.

Michael Hooker

6/17/2020 Linda came to our rescue as our realtor when we needed to find a home to buy both quickly and unexpectedly.

We had briefly been working with someone else who wasn't being proactive enough, but Linda immediately got to work for us with urgency and care. She listened to our needs and preferences and was very patient with us as we explored many different neighborhoods across several cities in Orange County. We were so glad to be working with someone so nurturing and relatable, as the home buying process can be overwhelming and exhausting. We are very grateful for all of her experience and professionalism that led us to a successful home purchase!

I had the best experience with Karen.

She's so professional. I really appreciated her attentiveness and commitment to the posting. She provided great recommendations on improvements. She even fixed my fireplace!

Jean Kim

Finding a place to call home is an important decision!

Finding Ashley was a blessing! She is amazing. So sweet and so professional. She is very knowledgeable. I know she will help us find the perfect place and I'm happy to know she will be there for us throughout the entire process! She is great!!

Rob Armstrong was a delight to work with.

Very personable and genuine, allowed me to take my time . I really liked his style, so much so that I would recommend him to anyone I know either renting or selling.

Cynthia Paul

My husband and I began looking for a new home in a new area.

It was very time consuming and challenging because we did not know the lay of the land and needed help. Carole and Robert Mancini spent many hours with us, patiently determining our needs and getting to know what we wanted in our new home. They began narrowing down our options and took what seemed to be an overwhelming task and made it simpler. Carole and Robert are kind, honest and good people who we consider to be friends. Buying a home is a big decision and having Robert and Carole Mancini representing us made this decision less stressful. We are very happy with our home and Team Mancini.

Mary Kay was patient and diligent.

She got us our asking price at a time when the housing market wasn't great in California. She also connected us with the agency in New York that sold us our home and she made sure that this transaction went smoothly.  ~ Doug & Chan F.

I have had the pleasure of doing business with Nancy Aynehchi.

She is very professional, knowledgeable. I highly recommend Nancy to anyone in Orange County. The confidence I see in her, makes me believe work is going to get done correctly and swiftly.

Adrienne was fantastic.

Went above and beyond to help us find a rental property. Would highly recommend her services.

Dean Mayfield

When my husband and I decided to sell our first home, we interviewed 3 realtors, which were all experienced and supposedly great.

We decided to go with Martin and Laura, which we now feel that we had made the best decision. Besides from being experts in their field, Martin and Laura are very personable! They were always available, attentive to our needs and they made the whole process smooth. They even got us several offers! They will work hard to sell your home for the best price and either Martin or Laura will be at your open house, not like most realtors who send their assistant to do the open house. We are very happy with our results and recommend Martin and Laura to anyone looking to sell their home!

Nancy L

Adrienne is smart about how and why people buy.

She was born to share these gifts with us.

Therese Tibbits

Great team to work with!

Karen was more than helpful in finding us a house in OC that fits right in our price range! She was assertive, extremely communicative and easy to reach to answer any of our questions at all times. Professional. On top of all things. Karen made the house buying process in this market a breeze!

Martha Hernandez

Cathy is a top-notch real estate professional.

  She has really streamlined the real-estate process to make it as pain-free as possible.  We were reminded at every step of the things that we needed to take care of.   Our experience with her has been so great that it's one of the main reasons that we have recommended Cathy to many of our friends.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness.

I am a fellow realtor in Northern California. I had clients looking to relocate to Southern California and I put them in touch with Lisa and Jeff. They took SUCH fantastic care of my clients. They're responsive, knowledgable, kind, and incredibly easy to work with. They educated my clients (which was incredibly important since they were moving to a new area), and found them a house that made perfect sense from both a budget and a personal standpoint. I highly recommend Lisa and Jeff - anyone would be lucky to have their help and support!

Carli M.

Tracy helped my wife and I purchase our first house in Lake Forest.

She was incredibly responsive and helpful throughout the over two-month journey of finding the perfect home for us. She also guided us through the confusing escrow process and helped us every step of the way. Tracy's responsiveness and availability were unparalleled. We highly recommend her.

His is sincerely concerned about the Sucess of individuals. He's able to provide solid criteria that help you stand out as a professional in the Real Estate Industry .

What can we say other than Martin and Laura impressed us every step of the way.

Their professionalism and attention to detail was second to none. Their marketing strategy yielded us 15 offers that sold our Irvine home for well over the asking price. Martin and Laura did their homework on all the potential offers and put the data in an organized spreadsheet for an easy comparison. This is just one of the many ways where they really put in the time and effort and devotion throughout the process. The professional photos, write up, videos and mailers blew us away. May I also say that our transaction closed smoothly while we were out of state in our new home. Our dog Daisy even loved them and she is always skittish around strangers. Martin and Daisy were best buds towards the end. This is a testament to his warmness. I would highly recommend Martin and Laura. They are a complimentary team that has your best interest at heart.

When I decided to sell my home, I was unsure of the process and trusted Jackie to take care of it.

She took control and worked tirelessly to take care of both selling the house and making sure I understood each step. She has been active in my neighborhood and her friendly nature allowed me to trust  her completely when I met with her initially to discuss listing my home.

Jamal Brown

Maria was committed to making sure I got the home I wanted at a price I was happy with.

She was completely willing to assist me during every part of the home buying process.

Reid Boddie

I have worked with Nancy since 2014.

Just closed an escrow last week. Nancy was my listing agent on an investment property in Tustin. I live inSanta Barbara. Nancy is diligent smart and unrelenting. She will get the job done. If you are looking for top notch representation, hire her. I know, because I am a licensed agent since 1980. Thank you Nancy for another job done well. Regards Paul Schulte Santa Barbara,CA

Paul Schulte

Jason provided excellent and professional service.

He made everything easy from signing contracts, appraisal and closing requirements. He was always available to contact for any questions we had regarding the property. We are grateful to have met Jason at the open house and he has helped us with our dream home.

Alistair Agujar & Karina Erum

I have worked with Sandi on several home purchases since 2000.

I have to say she has been the best! Her professionalism, experience and knowledge has been truly an asset in looking for a new home. Always honest, considerate of my interests and concerns with my home search. I highly recommend her and would not go anywhere else!

Eric Melendez

Fantastic job.

On top of every detail throughout the process.

Priscilla is very professional and helpful.

She always works hard and serve her customer well. She is thoughtful and resposible. I trust her very much.

I just wanted to write you to let you know what a wonderful agent you have in Sandi Griffo.

  She was a dream to work with in recently selling our house in Lake Forest.  She was honest, hardworking, and always had our interests at heart.  She evaluated our house and told us what we would have to do to fix up the house to get it ready to sell and earn top dollar. She did a terrific job in marketing the house by holding a wine and cheese open house for the neighborhood followed by a general open house on the weekend.  And that was amazing.  I was there for the open house and another real estate agent who lived in the neighborhood dropped by and cornered me while Sandi was busy with other potential buyers. He said, “I can help you hold an open house.” “Look around you.  We’re already holding an open house” Then he said, “I can get you additional coverage by advertising your house on my website.” I replied, “Sandi’s already advertised us on the website of the largest real estate company in Orange County.  How are you going to top that?” Then this realtor, who supposedly specialized in my neighborhood, asked me how we had come up with the list price for the house.  I told him Sandi had reviewed the comps with us and recommended the list price based upon the comps with similar houses in the neighborhood and knowing what was going on in the market. We agreed that $799K would be the right list price. And then he said, “Well, you have it terribly over-priced.” “You can leave now.” We had the house listed at $799K.  The open house was on the Saturday before Easter.  On Monday, we received 3 offers: one for $815K, one for $820K, and one for $845K!!! Multiple offers, and each one of them over list price!!!  It doesn’t get any better than that! Because of Sandi’s hard work, professionalism and experience, she knew exactly how to place our house in the market so we would get maximum exposure, drive up the interest in the house and achieve maximum value.  She held our hands through the whole process, providing excellent advice, guiding us through every step of the way, all the time while maintaining a cheery, positive attitude.  She was a Godsend to work with.

Randy Barnhart

I wanted to thank you for all of your assistance with the ADP Rest program, and your help in guiding me through the process.

You could not have referred a better realtor as I can honestly say that Sandi was a true blessing sent to me and my children. The day I met Sandi I was amazed how I automatically felt I could trust her on a professional level as well as a personal level. When I first requested assistance with the REST program I mentioned how horrible my previous experience with my realtor was and gave exact details to what I was looking for and what I was not looking for. Sandi really took the time to listen to what my needs were and paid good attention to what was best for my children as well. Sandi went over and beyond to make me comfortable throughout the entire process and I just thought I should take the time to share with you the positive experience I had with the ADP Rest program and Sandi as my realtor. Thank you -Thank you- Thank you!!!!

"Here are a few words to describe Cathy: Knowledgeable, patient, professional, diligent, reliable, responsive Cathy was a much needed guiding rudder in the torrents of short sales and the current market in general.

"  

Steve & Leslie B.

Karen is the ultimate professional.

We have used her at least 5 times to lease our condo. Every time she goes above and beyond what you would expect. Probably could not have kept our condo when we moved from Orange County if we did not have Karen to help us keep it leased. Would recommend her over and over.

Madden Family Trust

Working with Mana was a pleasure: she was patient, thorough and always responded quickly when I had questions or wanted to arrange to view a home.

During the detours and road-bumps of the closing process, she was always calm and helpful. I would recommend her as an agent to anyone. Debbie Johnson.

Mana again proved herself to be a top real estate agent.

She helped me buy more first house in 2008 and 8 year help me sell it. Who say seller's agents down do any work? She professionally staged our home so well that our children were so happy with it that they insisted on staying. She was there at each step, meeting all the inspectors and contractors at our property during the whole process.

Suleyman & Sennur Turgut

This is the fifth transaction that Martin and Laura have managed for me.

Since I live out of town, they not only have helped me buy, sell and unfortunately short sale a property, but also performed as quasi property Managers handling a miriad of details that were overwhelming for me. We just closed on the sale of my Tustin home yesterday. It was a difficult transaction - not because of the Uribe's, but there were at least three major obstacles that could have killed the deal. 1). My tenant tried to sabatoge the sale because he did not want to move, even though his lease would be honored. 2). The bank worked at a snail's pace and 3). There was turnover of escrow staff midway through the transaction which was a pain. The transaction was further complex with the buyers being foreign nationals, which are subject to more stringent underwriting guidelines for loan approval. In summary, this transaction could have easily died, but Martin and Laura are experts and very skilled in dealing with difficult people and issues that come out of left field. So for these reasons, I would not use anyone else. I would be willing to talk to anyone considering the Uribe's' services.

Suzanne K

Sam is an awesome agent he was very professional and at the same time I knew that he only acted in my best interests.

Sam is the guy you want to represent you and your family because he cares about you, your desires and goals first and foremost. Simply put he is the best!!!

Parada Holdings LLC

I interviewed a couple of agents when I planned to sell my house and Martin is the one that impressed me the most.

After I chosen him as my agent, he showed me the great skill of negotiation, timely responsiveness and the knowledge of local property market. I didn't have the chance to compare him with other seller agents because I trusted him from the beginning until the time my house was sold. Martin works very hard. For example, he almost holds open house every weekend and provide me feedback if there are something positive. I am not sure if other agent can sell my house at a better price, but I am 100% satisfied with his service. I only met his partner, Laura for one or two times so I don't have too much impression on her. She helped me to stage the house, prepare some paperwork and maybe do some other work but I am not aware of. After all, it was a great experience to work with them and I would recommend sellers near Westpark and Columbus Grove to choose them as the seller agent.

Yikan Tang

What impressed me most about working with Jason and Susan Zwolak was that they didn't waste my time.

  They really listened to what I was looking for in my next home, and showed me homes that truly fit my criteria. They also listed and sold my current house within weeks of finding my new home. They were always very responsive, reasonable and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend them to others." Larry Melenberg (Jason & Susan listed and sold Larry's home in Long Beach and represented him as the buyer for a home in Irvine)

Cathy was amazing!

Her knowledge of the housing market and professionalism were exceptional. We will definitely refer her to all of our friends.

Marlo Cooper

Working with Murray on purchasing a house was a great overall experience.

He helped us narrow down and focus on our most important and desired home features. Walked us through and explained every step of the process. Overall, very happy with the experience and outcome.

Oconnor/Sardarianpour

Hiram and his partner Carol were always courteous and punctuate.

They returned our calls/texts in a timely manner. But what we appreciate them the most for is their honesty. Other agents will paint us very rosy pictures of how much rent we can possibly generate with the rental we were searching for, but Hiram and Carol reminded us to be conservative and gave us a much-needed reality check. They also took the time to help us explore many different neighborhoods in Irvine to make sure we feel confident about our choice. We highly recommend this team and will definitely do business with them again.

Lily

Terry was great to work with.

TLC

It is on rare occasion that we meet people who are generally good people.

Susan and Jason are that. We first met them when they knocked on our door last spring, introduced themselves and offered their services. Within a few months, we had them back to the house and they were very honest and forthright on the circumstances. It was an average of 4 months to sell in our area. Well they had weekly open houses, and constant communication with us and it sold in 4 months. The consideration, honesty and just the true caring about us was really nice. We felt like we met someone who would be in our lives for awhile. Once the house sold, they then helped us find our new house. What can I say other than they were with us every step of the purchase and answered all of our questions or got us to the write party to answer the question. From beginning to end they have been a rock of stability and definitely a shoulder to lean on. We highly recommend this team if you are looking to either buy or sell. They are amazing!

Mark & Cyndi L.

I was extremely happy with Karen's service as my agent for the leasing of my home.

She was very knowledgeable about the market and provided excellent comps supporting her expertise. She was available 24/7 for questions and information. She consistently followed through on her commitments, reminded others of their commitments, and kept the property listing moving forward. There was quite a bit of work to get done on the property and she provided a number of excellent references for services. This was particularly helpful as I live outside of the area and couldn't always meet with repairmen. She always offered to meet service personnel, and I took her up on her offer. She was prompt, professional in all communications and meetings, and very conscientious about COVID-19 and impacts on the listing. I felt as though I was her only client because of her availability and commitment to my success. I would highly recommend her. I will absolutely use Karen in the future for my property.

Debra L. Autry

Mike and I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you so much for helping us with selling our house and buying a new house.

It was emotionally difficult to decide to sell our house in the first place, but you comforted us from the beginning assuring us that nothing is set in stone and we could change our minds if became too difficult. You were very helpful in doing a walkthrough of our house and telling us things we needed to do to help with the sale and referring all the people that could help with the work. Everyone you referred did a great job in whatever it was that needed to be done. Also, when it came time to list, we appreciated the time you took to stage our house and having a great photographer take such wonderful pictures. We think all the things you did made all the difference by the fact that we were the last of three homes with the same floor plan in the development to list but yet the first to sell. You were as equally helpful on the house buying front by setting up the email notification of homes that met our criteria as soon as it came on the market. You were so patient in showing so many different types of houses. We probably confused you at some point about what we were looking to buy, but at the end, we got exactly what we were looking for. Thank you for patiently answering our many, many, many questions!!!It was comforting to have both of you as team because it felt like we were getting two perspectives on everything. We always felt you were great but didn't even realize how great until we had to deal with an agent in the buying process that was not so great (we'll be nice and not name names).Thank you again for everything. Mike & Katie, Tustin Ranch

We have known Martin and Laura since we planned to buy our 2nd home for more than 5 years now at least.

From 2 kids to 3, our home buying needs grow with it and they were helping us from door to door. Their expertise, professionalism and expertise are superb. They make sure to explain everything to us so we will know what to expect in every step of the process. They are very precise and patient. Most importantly, they have such good hearts and have so much respect not only for us but for the other parties’ involved. Thank you so much Martin and Laura! We wouldn’t be able to make it without you and we are looking forward to work with you again when we are ready for our next home.

Vince & Sheryl Laygo

I am happy to recommend realtors Lisa & Jeff Anderson.

They combine years of experience to provide an excellent service in a friendly manner. They managed the remodeling, the staging & the sale of my California townhouse, while I was out of state. Before I left California, I worked with Lisa & Jeff to prepare a plan & a budget. They sent me regular pictures & detailed explanations of the progress of the work. The remodeling was completed on schedule and within budget. The staging offered a décor of beautiful contemporary design. I found Lisa & Jeff very helpful in explaining the legal language in the many documents that required my signature. Lisa & Jeff worked effectively in coordinating the efforts of many roles, including: - Representative of the escrow company - Contact at the Home Owner's Association - Vendor who did remodeling - Vendor who did staging - Inspector of property condition - Buyer's realtor - Seller (me). I am glad I chose Lisa & Jeff to manage the remodeling & sale of my townhouse.

Eman helped me and my wife finding a rental house.

We kept searching, looking and viewing houses for more than 5 months. Through the process, she was very patient, and professional. Thanks to Eman.

Ahmed Rashwan

Murry and Amy are the best of the best.

Murry helped guide us through this stressful experience, his knowledge and experience are essential to getting as much as we could expect for our property, his suggestions about staging our home for sale made the difference. Amy was very helpful in writing up a nice explanation of our home in the listing, her description made our home irresistible! The photographer they use was easy to work with and his pictures were spectacular. Every step was critical to us and thanks to Murry and Amy we got a great buyer who wants to preserve our old homes integrity. Thank you Murry and Amy Falk, you are the best of the best!

Swartz

Once again, I had the pleasure of working with Monique.

Not only is she my real estate agent but I'm thankful I can call her my friend. Monique helped me sell my home in 2018, find my rental home and now in 2020, purchase my new home. As always, Monique stayed on top of my transaction and represented me and my family and really kept our best interest as priority. She was very attentive and really helped us get through our home buying process during a very unprecedented time. Thank you Monique!

Susie C.

We just closed on our home in Irvine.

Lisa and Jeff are amazing! We met Lisa and Jeff almost two years ago when our neighbor put their home on the market, we were planning on buying in the future but had no definite timeline or loan approval. As we would see interesting homes come on the market we would email or text her and she would always respond so quickly and would research and give us her expert opinion--even though we were a long shot at this point. We started semi-seriously looking, saw a house and put in an offer--Lisa talked to me--she wanted to make sure we "weren't buying this home on a crazy whim"...in a nutshell, she cares, she's not out to make a quick sale, she knew we were prequalified but she wanted to make sure that this is what we really wanted. Lisa and Jeff also worked tirelessly through the whole process---we saw the house at 8pm and we got the offer letter in at 11pm and closed in 20 days of the offer being accepted. Lisa also works with this awesome lender (who she gets nothing from) who is simply amazing--great rates and just amazingly efficient, they communicate and are in sync which is such an advantage when purchasing a home. Jeff was super thorough with his inspections and even provided video of the deficiencies when they were not done correctly. We are so happy with our home, the transaction, the communication and how everything went. Highly recommended. :)

Adele & Kevin, Irvine

Joan has helped us find a home twice.

She is very responsive and had our best interest in mind always. She went above and beyond to help us with anything we needed.

Kristine Mcmullen

Becky has been a great help in our home buying process.

She explained the real estate market and walk us through each step. She's patient and easy to work with. I'll recommend her to my friends and family.

Meiying Chen

Our entire family uses Tracy.

Wouldn't think of using another realtor. She's simply the best!

Stephen Moreno

Searching for and purchasing a home can be a very meticulous and cumbersome task, particularly when you have a busy schedule.

Working with Nancy has made the experience and process very easy to find and purchase the home that I loved. Nancy is very punctual, experienced, and readily available for help and guidance throughout the process. She took the time to explain details of the tasks required pre-purchase and all the forms that I had questions on. She went out of her way to view and video houses when my schedule could not accommodate. She worked very hard, got the deal I wanted, and I could not be happier. Would highly recommend, and I know I will be working with her in the future for other projects as well.

Shawn Younessi

We had such a great experience with Sandi when we moved to Orange County in 1999, so she was our automatic choice when we sold the property in 2016!

Sandi gave us practical advice during all stages of our sale. She expertly staged our home and then was skillful and enthusiastic in creating market interest before our open house. Sandi is friendly,personable and professional. You can trust her to keep the process moving along and to guide you in making important decisions. Thanks Sandi for making our move as stress-free as possible ! You're the best!

Jane and David Ollard

Look no further Lisa and Jeff will manage selling and or buying your home with kid gloves and personal service.

 They go beyond managing the deal.  Both are extremely attentive to questions and/or concerns and are happy to reiterate the same even if you've asked them "tell how this goes again".  I was traveling on biz quite a bit and Lisa and Jeff assisted in the sale and all the numerous details that go into selling your home even while I was away.  What I like about both Lisa and Jeff is they will both offer their insights for you to weigh the best option that works for you. You will have great peace of mind when you choose Lisa and Jeff whether it's your first condominium or a million dollar property.

J.P.

Monique sold our house almost instantly and for above the asking price.

She was very concerned with our needs at all stages of the process and very easy and pleasant to work with. Thank you Monique!

Matthew McCarey

Excellent service.

I would highly recommend Nancy Aynehchi. If you want realtor that gets back immediately when you have questions use Nancy @ First Team Real Estate.

Terri Sharp

Tracy Bryant is an amazing realtor.

She helped us find our home within 2 days and we were approved!  She is fast, dependable, and persistent and we will be coming back to her in the future! I would highly recommend her to all of my friends.

Tracy Camarano

I am taking this opportunity to express my appreciation for the efforts put forth by Gaylene in representing my wife and I in the recent sale of our home in the Lake Forest area.

Upon our initial contact, Gaylene made suggestions that would make the property more marketable. She suggested that the changes once made would help in selling the house quicker and at a better price. After deciding to go forward with the suggestions, she put us in touch with a trusted contractor. After completing the upgrades, Gaylene assisted us in establishing our selling price and laid out a plan for the timing and availability of putting the house on the market. Having established our confidence in her industry knowledge, we followed her suggestions. The results were amazing to sell say the least. Gaylene conducted one open house the first weekend and by Sunday afternoon we had 4 offers. We actually ended up selling the house for more than we had listed it. Without going into further details, I do need to say that she was dedicated and involved through rest of the entire process. Always a phone call away and usually anticipating our questions and concerns before we asked. Gaylene's professionalism, industry knowledge, work ethic and friendly manner made our experience easier than I could have imagined. She is a credit to her profession.

"Ashley is a rockstar!

!!! I am in the process of looking for a place of my own and she has been amazing with constant communication and also trying to help find a place within my budget. I highly recommend in having her as a trusted advisor to help you find the place of your dream. She is also very professional and knowledgeable."

Bree

Mary Kay helped us determine what was really important to us, which was not what we first told her, by showing us various homes and condos online, and then in person at our request.

She was knowledgeable, courteous and patient, in a word, professional, from start to finish. In the end, we found the perfect home for us and couldn't be happier! I wish we could buy another home just to have the pleasure of working with Mary Kay, again! ~ Eugene & Yuko

I was so worried about moving from New Jersey to California but you made me feel confident by sharing your time with me and showing me all of Irvine. You never looked at your watch, never said no - you always said let's go!You knew our needs better than we did - Woodbrige is a wonderful community. We have met many wonderful people, many of which are from South Africa, and they all have one thing in common: They think you are WONDERFUL - now who can disagree?  Ethel, my family and I are all forever grateful.      Joanne & Brian Slobodien  Dear Ethel,I just wanted to take a moment from my busy schedule to thank you for all your efforts on my behalf.Your real estate expertise has helped me buy and sell five different properties over the last four years.

When it came time to sell two of the properties, I do not believe anyone could have been more thorough, from the time the escrow began until the day I received the final statement with check from the escrow company.  It is a pleasure to have you as a friend and advisor and to know that your word is your bond. Your integrity and sincerity cannot be questioned. AL

We met Cathy at an open house in Irvine, and told her what we were looking for in the way of a rental property.

She was very knowledgeable on all of Irvine's availability and suggested we check out a home that wasn't on the market yet. We loved it and bought it practically on the same day we saw it. Cathy is always available, calls back almost immediately and was very helpful in finding us people to check out the house, ie. inspectors, roofers, A/C etc. I also enjoyed working with her team from Hallmark Escrow, really sharp ladies and also very willing to help out with the closing. I would definitely use Cathy again for any other real estate in the future.

We have found Max Carr by luck and were very happy with his service.

He is very patient and responsible. We could not have got our Sweet home without his help!! Thank you Max. He is very knowledgeable and works with a personal touch. All our family members became close to him during the process. He never hesitated to go back and forth until the deal was closed. We really appreciate all his hard work and wish him all the best in the future. We will be happy to recommend him to our friends. He worked with us all through the process and offered some services. More than a realtor we found a good friend who gave us confidence and comfort to move forward with the deal. Thank you Max, Mahesh

Jason and Susan helped me sell a home and now I am in the process of buying a home with them again!

Highly professional and responsible. As a first time seller, they walked through every single step and explained all the questions that I have for me. And now as being a picky buyer, they've been working really hard to find the home" for me and we will be closing in a week! There is no need to mention all the 5 stars skills. They are just nice and reliable people that you will never regret working with them."Jin Guo (Jason & Susan listed and sold Jin's home in Tustin and represented him as the buyer for a home in Laguna Hills)

I couldn’t ask for a better realtor to work with.

Whether it’s on the purchase or sale side of things, Nancy always delivers. She goes above and beyond for her clients and it definitely doesn’t go unnoticed. Prior to selling my home this past year, I did some renovations to add value and she was always looking for ways to help. She’d provide me with contacts I didn’t have and even go as far as helping me schedule appointments to push the project forward. If you want someone that will go above and beyond for you and get the job done, she’s it!

Shar Y

As a first time home buyer, I want to express my great appreciation for your professionalism, understanding and support during the entire process!

You helped make the home buying experience as simple and pain-free as possible. I know you had my best interest at heart which was reassuring.  Thanks again, Carole! 

BILL & JULIA HIEKEL

We highly recommend Mary Kay for all your real estate needs.

She's helped us sell two homes, find a short term rental and purchase a home. For the last transactions, she magically coordinated the sale of our home (sold for more than the asking price before the scheduled open house), the "contingent" purchase of a condo, and provided excellent references for people to help deep clean, perform handy-man services and gardening services. All of this took place in a matter of a 30 day window. Not only were we pleased, but I'm sure the buyers and the sellers of the condo were pleased. The challenge of being 400 miles away posed no challenge at all. Signing the numerous required documents were made easy over the computer (or tablet) via Docusign. If you are looking for smooth transactions, Mary Kay is always on top of matters. After all, she's been our realtor for 12 years and we'll continue to return to her for all our needs.  - Edwin M.

Monique is the best!

She spent a lot of time with me to find us the perfect home. She is very "in tune" with her clients and works hard for you. I highly recommend her, and her knowledge of Irvine is most helpful. I will most definitely work with her again.

Karen Dean

I just have to say that I LOVE Tracy Bryant!

My husband and I had been looking for a home to buy in Irvine for over a year. I was referred to Tracy by my cousin, who was also buying, and my aunt/uncle who both bought their new home and sold their previous home with Tracy. I knew that if she was able to live up to their high standards, then she would live up to mine... and she definitely did. Tracy was always ready and available to meet us at a listing no matter the time/day. She was consistently positive and upbeat, and gave sound advice. She never pushed her opinions on us, and was very persistent that we get exactly what we were looking for. We finally found our dream home, and she made sure that the process was as easy as possible. This is our first home purchase, and we couldn’t be happier. Thank you for everything, Tracy!

Danielle Chang

I wish there was a 10* rating because that is what she deserves.

Hands down, Nancy Aynehchi is SIMPLY THE BEST! She has such a personal & professional approach to selling. You feel like you are her only client. She even advertises as far away as Asia to increase the buyers pool. Nancy kept me informed every step of the selling process. She & her husband took care of EVERYTHING including staging my home & backyard, hauling furniture, etc. away & contacting reliable contractors for the required repairs & ultimately, negotiated a great sales price for me. I felt like I had a concierge @ my disposal. Hands down...SHE IS SIMPLY THE BEST!

Becky B

If you want to buy or sell real estate in Northwood Murray and Amy Falk are the team to choose.

This was another successful and fun, yes they make it fun, transaction. They are knowledgeable, friendly, honest, on the ball agents. If I ever sell or buy another house I will ask Murray and Amy to help.

Giessmann

We recently sold our investment property in Agoura Hills.

Even though Nancy is not an active agent in that area (she lives and works 80 miles away), we did not want list with anybody but her! We have had such a great experience with her over the past few years. She went above on beyond to help us sell this property for over-asking prices in less than 1 week. My family trusts Nancy 100% and she has proven to be one of the best in the industry.

My husband and I cannot say enough wonderful things about Carole Mancini.

Due to a severe back injury my husband and I were forced to sell our two story condo and find a single story home. Which would not have been such an insurmountable task had it not been during the housing crash. Like most, we were upside down. For us it wasn't an issue of not being able to afford our place, just the major issue of me no longer being able to live in a home with stairs. We needed a miracle... and Carole gave us one. We were able to short sale our home (in Lake Forest) and purchase a new one. We are currently living in a beautiful single story home in Mission Viejo and couldn't be happier. She can't guarantee the same results since my situation was pretty rare, but I will always sing Carole's praises and send anyone and everyone to her for outstanding care and service."            

COLLEEN & TIM HENGGELER

As soon as we interviewed Carol, it was obvious she was quite experienced professional.

 She had a planned process and all the connections to get the job done.She helped us to get the house ready to sell...even loading peat moss to our garden area! Open houses held every Saturday and Sundays. She hosted a wine and cheese showing for the neighbors.The signs were always placed in a perfect location and picked up afterwards.  When offers came in, she spent a lot of time checking things out on each offer. This is an area that really showed her level of experience.We had a variety of offers and she guided us to the best buyer. I highly recommend Carol for any  real estate needs you may have.Larry and Georgina Brewer

I couldn't have asked for a better team than Lisa & Jeff.

They live in my community and I noticed whenever they would list a house, it would sell quickly. I have never sold a home before, but they were right there with me every step of the way. From our first consultation, they were armed with comps, facts and market trends. The open house was extremely well advertised and thought out. Their expertise quickly proved its weight in gold as I had an offer within days. Not once did I ever have to pick up the phone and ask where the status lay with closing . . . they were in constant contact whether it be by phone, text or email to keep me up to date. Additionally, they went above and beyond to help advise about staging, repairs and other activities that were hard for me to address as I had moved out of state. I would not hesitate to refer my family and friends to Lisa and Jeff.

Martin and Laura are true professionals with vast knowledge in the real estate market.

As first time homeowners, it was very comforting to know we could go to them with any questions we had. They are responsive, accessible and make themselves available to their clients. Despite entering a competitive market at the height of a pandemic, Martin and Laura made sure our needs and expectations were at the forefront of our house hunt. Working with them has been a great experience! I highly recommend Martin and Laura to anyone who is interested in entering the housing market. You will not be disappointed.

Tracy is amazing!

She helped my daughter find and purchase her first home. Not only did we trust Tracy to be honest and helpful but her responsiveness was phenomenal - she responded to every email, call and text immediately. Perhaps the best thing about Tracy was that she treated my daughter with respect and integrity and an overall commitment to help her find the best and safest place. She took into consideration that my daughter would be living alone and only showed us places where she would feel safe. Once we found the perfect place, Tracy was an advocate and supporter throughout the process. The sellers agent was difficult to work with but Tracy remained professional and worked hard to make sure the deal went through. Highly recommend her to anyone needing to buy or sell. She was/is fantastic. Thank you Tracy for making our experience so positive!

Martin and Laura Uribe did an outstanding job selling our townhouse in Columbus Grove.

From our first meeting with them, their deep knowledge of our community, professionalism and warmth inspired our confidence and trust. After hearing our plans and needs from the sale, Martin and Laura did an in depth assessment of the market and our home. They shared their findings with us and recommended a price well in excess of other nearby listings, but fully supported by our home’s finish and condition and the overall market. We immediately moved into sale preparations with a photography session. We were overjoyed with the quality of the advertising brochures they prepared which looked like an Architectural Digest presentation. Their advertising strategy was just as professional and produced excellent results. After the first open house we received four offers that Martin quickly analyzed and verified. Once we accepted the winning offer, Martin helped us with all documentation providing sound advice on the sales agreement and coordinating the timely completion of the buyer’s due diligence. Throughout the process Martin and Laura kept us well informed of progress and were always ready to assist us with our move. The sale closed ahead of schedule at 99% of our listing price and was far easier than I imagined. We sincerely recommend Martin and Laura Uribe to any home seller or buyer. We are confident you will be happy with the results!

Bob and Joann Stevens

Jackie is the only agent that was able to answer all my questions and I didn't have to hunt her down or wait hours and hours for her to get back with me.

Buying a home stresses me out and it shows, but Jackie didn't let that get in her way. I gave her 5 stars in all the categories for a reason, she  deserves high marks for her great work. Thanks again for all your help.

Mark Walt

We had an absolutely great experience with Linda in selling our condo and buying a larger one in Irvine.

Linda provided staging service for our house and it was such an eye-opener. Our sister didn't even recognize it. Linda included it in her sales process which was a large saving for us but more importantly, it really made our condo stood above the rest and helped us sell our condo quickly, which was one of a key criteria for us. This is another important part of Linda's professional dedication to us as she really understood our priority. She spent a lot of time to help us deal with the preparation of the house, dealing with handyman services, gardener, etc. as we both work during the day. Besides helping us with our sales, she did a wonderful job seeking out our purchase and worked closely with our lender to make a formidable team in representing us and our offer. She investigated the seller's situation to provide us advance warnings of the negotiation process and true to her prediction, it played out as she had described to us. Beyond our sales and purchase, Linda continued to assist us by providing good leads on handyman and other minor work service providers. She also helped us followed up with minor issues with our new HOA. We can't speak highly enough of Linda and just hope this testimonial provide sufficient insight into Linda's dedication to us as our representative and her commitment to us meeting our goal.

Minh Nguyen and Hang Ngo

I highly recommend Nancy for all your real estate needs.

We are very impressed with her professionalism and overall just had an amazing service. Thank you so much!

Sadaf S

I was referred to Max and Cathy through a real estate agent who was out-of-state and wasn't able to support me personally.

She has the utmost trust in First Team and had positive things to say about Cathy and Max. Cathy and Max work very well together as a team. They are very thorough, familiar with Orange County area, and got our home sold very quickly. Prep Work: - Max and Cathy took the time to have me interview various stagers and contractors. They provided me plenty of options, so I was able to choose the options that were the best fit for me and my wife. - On one trip, Cathy even drove me to Lowe's to assist me with purchasing upgrades for the home and offered to transport items. Stager: - Hands down, go with Kayvon or ITStaged. They're not the cheapest, but they do an amazing job. Super fast, effective, and they have great taste and style. Great referral from Max and Cathy. Selling Process: - We did a sneak peak early in the week, office caravan on Thursday, Open House on Saturday/Sunday, and got 4 offers by Monday. Open House: - Prior to our listing, we had virtually no competition in our price range or availability in the area. When our listing became live on Monday morning, we had 2 other competitors in the same price range and Open House dates. - The weekend of the Open House, my wife and I brought our friends to "shop" the competition. Max and Cathy's presentation, professionalism, and execution were top-notch. We felt very confident after that weekend and they even brought out their taco guy on Saturday and another special event on Sunday. Negotiations and Closing: - Max really shined in this area by really catering to what my wife and I wanted. We were in a position with multiple offers (all at asking or above) and we were acting in a position of strength. - There were a handful of adjustments that needed to be made along the way (nothing in relation to Max or Cathy) and our agents accommodated to every detail. All in all, know that the communication of Max and Cathy are extremely professional and top-notch. They work very well together as a team and will give you their honest opinion (even if you disagree), but they will fully support you and do what's in the best interest of the client. Thank you again for all your help!

Justin L.

Nancy has great knowledge, was efficient and is very professional.

After she listed our property she brought in a full offer only after couple days. We would definitely refer her to others.

Nasser Saadati

Working with Terry over the last months, as he assumed the temporary role of managing the Newport Beach office along with his other responsibilities, has been a real pleasurable and inspirational experience.

At each office meeting, he presents information he feels is essential to becoming a competent client-oriented professional and shares stories of his own experiences to validate the key steps to success. He constantly reminds us that his objective is to help each agent build a dependable, sustainable, and predictable business while improving the quality of his/her life. Terry is very approachable and makes people feel he is sincerely interested in their story. As a role model for one who personifies a leader and coach, he has set the bar high for his replacement.

Jackie has become our whole entire family's to-go real estate expert!

Thanks Jackie!

DInali Mallikage

Thanks for my friend's recommendation to let me know Jackie.

Her negotiation skills and professional communication skills are very strong. She has rich market expertise. She is considerate of customers everywhere. She has many new suggestions and sales plans. I trust and like her very much. It's a pleasure to work with her.

Dear Dan and Sandi, Just a quick note to share with you how much we appreciate the excellent service provided by Sandi and First Team Real Estate with finding Sam and Nernante Pierre-Louis a property in the area.

  As Sam notes below, they are truly grateful for Sandi’s efforts that went above and beyond. On behalf of St. Joseph Health, it was our hope that their transition to the area would go smoothly.  Thanks to Sandi it sounds like everything turned out well. Thank you again for everything.

Judy Schweitzer

Linda LaPlante is an incredible real estate agent.

At the time we met her we hadn't been seriously considering putting our home on the market, but with her positive attitude and thoughtful demeanor we were sold on the idea. Linda took the time to answer all of our concerns, answer every call,  and make the process quite pleasant. She advised us on a few improvements that could be made with our home and provided us contacts to help with them. She provided excellent written (her MLS description) , visual (both presentation and the professional photography) , and verbal (her outstanding communication) marketing for our home. She has a clean, vibrant interior design style and did a phenomenal job staging our home beautifully. Even now I have adopted her style for our new home. Every stage in the home selling process went smoothly. She understood what was important to us and was our advocate. We can thank Linda for the wonderful current location we call home today. Thank you Linda for your professionalism.

Daniella Longstreth

The professional relationship with Gaylene started with my wife and me the day after Christmas 2014.

We sat down together and worked out the details to sell out condo. We needed the proceeds of the condo sale to help us toward our new house purchase. At the time my wife was 8 months pregnant with our third child. We worked quickly to put the condo in a presentable state. Gaylene worked very close with us to ensure no details were missed. I don’t know how she does it, but she had at least one showing everyday for us and the open houses were very well attended. After a buyer was established, Gaylene literally helped them and the buyer’s agent through the loan process. Her diligence single handily got our condo sold to this buyer. It wasn’t just the way she connected with us as clients but the frequency of her communication. We always felt in touch with Gaylene. Trying to sell a home while having a child was not easy, but she understood that...sometimes better then we did. We would not have wanted to go through this process with anyone else. We have never met someone in this or any industry that worked as hard for us.

When we traveled in China Joan was our favorite tour guide.

Unlike some other guides she didn't routinely go through the motions- she was genuinely interested in interacting with us and providing the information that we were most interested in. She is bright, articulate and fun. Go to where she is in China, just to be with her! August 13, 2010, Betty-Ann was Qiong's client

Betty-Ann Heggie

Jason is a great person and amazing realtor.

He took the time to ensure I understood each step of the home buying process and not get overwhelmed. When we first began looking at homes he ensured that the homes we looked at fit my budget and the location was ideal. Furthermore, his negotiating skills were great and he saved me thousands of dollars! As the process continues along he went through each step thoroughly to make sure I understood what was happening. I highly recommend Jason and the Zwolak Group if you want the very best realtors!

Irwin K.

Murray is a pleasure to work with as he is very knowledgeable and patient.

I would highly recommend him.

Karen sold me the condo many years ago.

She is easy to talk to and explained everything I didn't understand. She was patient, kind and always available.

Meg Garduno Living Trust

Nancy was an outstanding agent and she helped my fiancé and I get our dream condo!

She helped every step of the way and went out of her way to help us. I would highly recommend, Nancy if you are looking for a rental!

Kimberly Buckner

Jackie was amazing to work with.

She spent over a year with my family finding us the perfect house. She never tired, or lost interest in helping us. Everyone told us how difficult it was to buy a home, so we were worried and nervous but with her guidance the process went smooth and efficient.   She is professional, honest, diligent and has an eye for detail. I felt secure knowing that she was guiding us through the process. I would strongly recommend Jackie because she is professional, ethical, knowledgeable and experienced.

My wife and I had an excellent experience finding our new home with Monique.

She was very knowledgeable and helped us out quite a bit with the process. Very much recommended.

Ian Hendricks

Dear Sandi and Debbie, I cannot begin to tell you just how much I appreciate your help with making a very scary and stressful step in life, much easier.

I appreciate your taking as much time with me and answering my many phone calls. Any time I have the opportunity to recommend you, you can believe me when I say you are appreciated more than you realize. I'll be singing your praises! Thanks again. Kathryn

Terry is a genuine and dynamic sales leader.

My first significant interaction with Terry was when I had a challenge with a transaction. As an Agent, I was very pleased to see the fair and equitable approach Terry took to helping our team find a solution to our predicament, while at the same time balancing the Client's and First Team's best interests. Terry is an ethical and pleasurable professional to work with.

Danny Murphy

It was a pleasure to have Lisa and Jeff Anderson as our real estate agents representing us buying a new construction home.

Some people don't realize that you should have a real estate agent represent you when searching for new construction or touring model homes. Lisa and Jeff each played a pivotable roll in making our dream home become a reality. This is a husband and wife team that I trust and would recommend to others.

Thomas

It was an absolute pleasure working with Nancy.

Nancy was referred to us by close friends and found her to be very thorough and professional with every aspect of the sale of our home. Being the first home that we have every sold, she was truly a blessing as it all happened so quickly. We would recommend her in a heartbeat.

Ken and Gina Stoltenberg

Working with Gaylene was a blessing from beginning to end.

I actually thought she was going to give up on us as it took almost a year to find a house, but her kindness, dedication and not to mention her patience helped us to finally make a bid. I highly recommend Gaylene because not only will get the house of your dreams you also get an amazing friend.

Gene represented me through the sale process of my Irvine townhouse.

I am completely satisfied with the service they provided. Gene took care of every aspect of the sale process in the most timely manner; he is highly dedicated, accurate and offers great insight into the market. Given that I have relocated out of state prior to the sale, Gene also managed additional household tasks such as trimming the trees and repairs requested by the buyer. He was ready and willing to tackle it all on my behalf! Most of all, Gene has a very genuine and trustworthy personality – my wife and I felt remarkably comfortable entrusting Gene with this very important transaction and made the entire process seamless. Thank you, Gene.

Santhosh and Anna

I am so happy I chose Jason & Susan Zwolak to sell my Beachwalk home.

After seeing their extensive virtual and marketing strategy, including interactive floor plans, professional photography and video, I knew I made the right choice. Even though we listed at the beginning of the pandemic, they were able to bring in 3 offers in 21 days. With some negotiating and strategizing, we selected the right buyers for the house, at just under full asking price. After hearing a neighborhood realtor advise that we would never even get close to our asking price, I am definitely happy I hired The Zwolak Group. They are true professionals and Marketing Experts.

Sallie P.

I've enjoyed working with the Uribe team on a couple of different transactions.

They have always been extremely professional, very knowledgeable and they have always conducted themselves with the utmost integrity. One basic aspect of customer service that I appreciate is integrity. They can be counted on to do what they say they are going to do and be where they say they are going to be. I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home.

Richard H.

We were so fortunate to have found Nancy when we were looking to purchase a home in the Corona California area.

As our realtor Nancy helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. Nancy was patient as we were first time homebuyers and ask a lot of questions. Nancy was extremely responsive and make sure we only looked at homes In areas where the schools were outstanding for our kids. In short Nancy was always on our side working to make sure our house purchase was simple and successful as possible.The best part about working with Nancy was that she was always more focused on giving us good advice in finding homes that met our needs. We would recommend Nancy to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home definitely five stars⭐️⭐️

Harry,Annie Redmomd

Karen is our Angel and the reason that we got the place we did.

.. We were looking for a little home to rent, which for a real estate agent doesn't offer much incentive. Yet she went out of her way to help me find multiple listings and lobbied for me behind the scenes, and got me into the place of my dreams out of the goodness of her heart. She's even hooking us up with a washer & dryer from a friend! Just because! If you need help finding a place LOOK NO FURTHER. She is the best.

Monica Isbell Valdivia

Lisa and Jeff are great at what they do -- extremely personable, go the extra mile to ensure you understand the sales process, market situations, reactions, and above all else, they do so with a 'down to earth' warmth.

During our initial meeting, I never felt they were pitching, I never felt pressured and although we met as complete strangers, the atmosphere simply felt natural and comfortable. I liked that we had 'real' conversations. They don't sprinkle fluff dust or spout realtor jargon just to win you or the conversation. They make meaningful recommendations, vendor guidance, and encouraged us to research ourselves. Throughout the experience, I always felt they were our champions and had our best interest. At the end of the day, we had multiple offers, went into escrow in less than 2 weeks, and sold our house for more than what we asked. Win, win, win. Now you can draw your own conclusions whether these wins are attributed to realtors on top of their game or simply to good fortune but I can firmly say I don't think anyone could have delivered the overall client experience like Lisa and Jeff Anderson.

Sherry & Lance Huang

Our experience with Cathy was phenomenal!

We purchased a condo and she made us feel like we were buying a multi-million dollar home. She was very attentive to all our needs and addressed any and all of our concerns no matter how big or small with diligence, haste and ease. She made the experience for us as first-time home buyers very comfortable. If you are in the market to buy a home we highly recommend Cathy. She will give you the attention and service any home buyer deserves! Thank you Cathy for helping us find our perfect home!

Euliza & Sean Connolly

My husband Lance, our two boys, and I were relocated to Minnesota this summer from Yorba Linda, CA.

We were fortunate enough that Lance's company provided us a relocation packet to assist us with our move. One of the many benefits of that was that we got the opportunity to "interview," and choose from three different Realtors.  Sandi was the third Realtor we met, and from the very beginning we knew she was the best.  I would also like to add that one of the three Realtors is a very dear friend of mine.  We chose Sandi as our Realtor for many reasons.  She immediately impressed us with her knowledge of the housing market, specifically in the area we were living in. We were on the same page on everything, starting with the appropriate sales price for our house.  This set her apart from the other two Realtors. It wasn't because she suggested the highest sales price (she didn't), but because she suggested the right price. This was my family's 4th move and our biggest one so far.  With that being said, it was the most difficult for the family.  We really felt that Sandi was our partner every step of the way.  She was always there to answer any questions or concerns and guided us in the right direction when we needed it.  I especially, felt that I had her support, since my husband was already living in Minnesota.  Sandi, made me feel like she had, "my back," especially when it came to dealing with the buyer's Realtor. Sandi showed such professionalism, even when the other Realtor showed such absolute unprofessional-ism!  She was calm and collected at all times, even when the other Realtor challenged and confronted her in the presence of me and my husband.  My husband and I feel very grateful that we got the opportunity to meet Sandi and work with her. I would recommend her in a second, and we wanted you to know how we feel. 

Lance and Josie Westphal

We've never known anyone who has the negotiation skills that Murray has.

We fell in love with a house that was a long shot for us to get, but Murray spent hours working to get that house for us. We're really impressed with Murray's attention to detail, his communication skills, his ability to know and understand what's important to his clients. Murray could have a career as a psychologist with his understanding of people, or a marketer with his ability to sell, or a financial advisor with his knowledge of law and finance. He's all these and he's an all around ethical, caring and nice guy.

Schroeder

There are not enough fabulous things to say about this woman.

She a dynamo in action. Filled with expertise, she is knowledgeable about everything real estate oriented.........whether you are buying, selling or renting. I would (and have) highly recommended her to many people. She has won every award possible in real estate. The woman never sleeps! You will be so happy you chose her as your realtor.

Jackie was incredibly helpful throughout my entire home sale process.

She was there every step of the way and always more than happy and willing to answer any of my questions. She always had my best interest at heart and provided honest and open feedback that helped me to make the most logical and  beneficial decisions when dealing with potential buyers.

The Lai Family Trust

I was looking to purchase a new home in Lake Forest.

It is difficult to find an agent that is knowledgeable and trustworthy. I was looking for the long term agent that doesn’t want to just close the deal and move on. I will be looking for other investment properties and need a reliable  partner.I had seen Jackie's open house signage and advertisement on the shopping carts a local grocery store which tells me honesty goes a longway with putting your name out there.WOW!!! What representation... Jackie Stashik has all the attributes of the highest quality realtor. Knowledge of the market and trends plus an EXPERT on Lake Forest. Her negotiation skill is superb with all the stumbling blocks that come with a home purchase. My transaction was a walk in the park regardless of the issues that had happened on the selling agents end.Aside from her work ethic, her interaction in the community is amazing and truly understated. I recommend Jackie Stashik for your real estate selling or purchasing, it would be difficult to find anyone else to give the full service and immediate attention I received.Tell your family and friends.Thanks Jackie!!!Michael Presnal

Michael Presnal

To Whom It May Concern,  This review is written to recognize and recommend the outstanding service, professionalism, and most importantly, the expertise of Nancy Aynehchi as a real estate professional.

From our experience with Nancy, she has demonstrated an amazing work ethic, goes above and beyond to negotiate the purchase price and terms that fits her clients needs. I had the great pleasure to work with Nancy in buying our dream home and her negotiating terms and a price that was exactly what we discussed. Nancy provided us with personal attention and service that exceeded my expectations. She was always available to talk with me, e-mail me, and/or text message with me regarding anything related to the house that we purchased. Nancy has earned my highest recommendation as a Realtor, and as a result, I would highly recommend Nancy for your consideration as your real estate professional. 

Courtney and Jason Janda

Monique Vang is an exceptional agent.

She has taken care of my Real Estate needs since 1994. During that time she has proven to be a true professional. She is responsive, ethical and hard working. She puts her clients needs above all else. Her commitment to her clients is outstanding. She is always there for them. When i am ready to move , she will be my agent, I have been recommending her to all my family and friends.

Robert M Bailey

I would absolutely recommend Jason and Susan Zwolak to anyone needing hard working,’ roll-up your sleeves’ agents who do whatever needs to be done to get the house ready for sale.

  Jason and Susan are very engaging and have lots of energy.  They were great at answering all my questions in a straightforward manner and were always very accessible.  In fact, they made me feel like I was their only client, and that’s a nice feeling to have.                                                                                                                                                              

Jean Jopski

We have known Gene from making rounds in our community and has always been friendly.

When we decided to put out house on the market, we called him without reaching any other agents. He was responsive and took care of everything for us from the big issues to tiniest items. He guided us through the way, got competitive contractor quotes and supervised all re-model work himself. He made it a very smooth experience to sell our home and we would work with him again in a heartbeat. Best thing about him is that he knows this area, neighborhoods and key people to work within places that have HOA. Big thumbs up!

Aniroodh

My husband and I were very picky who we would trust for selling our home of 25 years.

We are very happy with our choice, Mana Aminian; she surpassed all our expectations! Mana worked very hard regardless of time of the day and day of the week to get our home ready and then presenting it for sale. She was hands on in every step of the way, setting up venders and seeing into it that any job needed was done correctly and quickly.She held very nice and impressive open house and was readily available to show our home to potential buyers.Mana takes pride in her profession and that shows with her taking charge and accepting responsibility of things and chores that were not necessarily part of an agent’s job!The sale and transaction was fast and painless.Mana was a great agent working on behalf of us. I strongly recommend Mana Aminian to anyone who is looking to work with an agent whom they can trust.Looking forward to use Mana’s help and services for our future Realstate needs.Thank You Mana Aminian

Masi Hashemian

Thanks for all your help.

It was a pleasure working with you. The whole process starting from looking for houses till closing was smooth and not at all stressful because of your help. It is imperative to have a real estate agent who can respond at a moment's notice and assist in overcoming obstacles during the home buying process.  Fortunately, you had it all :) We would gladly recommend you to anyone looking to buy a home.

"We Love our Realtors!

Jeff and Lisa are very professional and we highly recommend them. We will be using them again when we get into the "looking for a house" mode again."Chris and Janet, Tustin Ranch

After at least eight transactions with Nancy, we are very satisfied with her expertise and efficiency.

No matter what comes up, she handles it quickly and professionally.

Piper Nicholas

Mana Aminian, By far Mana is the epitome of nothing but an awesome agent.

When my wife and I decided to move to Irvine we were very confused as to where we wanted to be. Mana spent lots of time researching schools, area's and long hours both day and night making sure we got our dream home. Because of all the time we spent together it built a lifetime bond of a great friendship that will last a lifetime. Mana spent so much time and her approach is what I truly like about her. She is a wife and mother and really understood about my wife's feelings and made her comfortable about the area. Mana deserves an Oscar or what's called an Academy award for every category of real estate imaginable. Mana Carol and I both love you very much and are looking forward to a lasting friendship well into the future. Through the high's and low's the last 6 months was amazing and you did an amazing job.

Shawn and Caroline Naim

I was EXTREMELY impressed with Mana in every facet.

I have had other agents work with me, but none of them had as much "know how" as Mana. and I was also impressed with her aggressiveness to get things done. Overall, I couldn't be happier, I am looking forward to my next purchase so I can work with her again.  Misael Lerma.

Jackie sold my home in Laguna Hills.

She staged an open house and I had a steady stream of prospects that resulted in multiple offers. She negotiated the best price for my home and handled all the escrow items promptly.

Keith Misumi

Joan recently helped me with a real estate transaction.

She is hard-working, dedicated, prompt and very motivated. She followed through with both parties and made sure everyone was happy. I recommend Joan as a real estate agent.

A Vakili

We had a great experience working with Maria.

She answered every question we had, updated us every step of the way and always responded promptly. We are extremely happy with her service and highly recommend her.

Samuel Worku

We have only good things to say about Jackie - she helped us find and purchase our very first home so we were glad to have a friendly professional to help us through.

We had a tight timeline but she got it done and guided us expertly through the search, visits, negotiations, and financial/paperwork  stages. We recommend her highly and will definitely use her again.

We chose to work with Murray and Amy because 17 years ago they did an excellent job helping us sell our home and purchase a new one.

We were so pleased to work with them again. Amy did a great job preparing marketing materials for the sale of our home, and Murray was extremely responsive and attentive to our questions and concerns every step of the way. They not only gave us excellent professional advice and guidance, but also demonstrated deep personal care throughout the process.

Calkins

Monique made buying a home so easy.

My fiancé and I were first time home buyers and were clueless to how the process worked. Monique and her real estate partner Dean spent over an hour of their time explaining the home buying process to me before I had even committed to working with them. Once my fiancé and I found the place we wanted Monique jumped in to action. She explained every step of the process to us and patiently answered our questions. She was very good at saving us money along the way and walked us through repair requests and contingencies. I definitely recommend Monique to any home buyer and especially new homebuyers.

Brian Abbott

I moved to Ca in 2004 and started shopping for a house in late 2005.

I tried 2 different realtors that were recommended by friends but had been disappointed with their services, so I started surfing on the internet myself to look for houses. I met Mary Kay that way. I was immediately impressed with her professionalism and no pressure sales attitude after the first meeting. Mary Kay listened to me carefully and have always catered to my needs instead of trying to "sell me" a house that I don't want or don't feel comfortable buying. I have since then purchased 2 houses with her (one when I was single and one with my husband) in different locations. Mary Kay is very knowledgeable about real estate and can handle difficult situations with grace and professionalism. She also helps us handle the rental property now since we are both working professionals. I personally had a great experience with Mary Kay for the last 8 years and I would definitely say she is the person to go to and trust if you are buying or selling a house!!  ~ Flora C.

How is this?

Words cannot describe how happy we are with Nancy. Her efforts made our sales experience excellent, she is so knowledgeable and her attention to detail was flawless. She knew how to showcase our house and market it to the right buyer. We could not believe how fast she found the right buyer. We found Nancy to be tireless and always available to answer our questions and address any concerns we had.

Dear Adrienne, Good evening and hope all is well with you.

 We have just finished closing on our home today in Watertown, Massachusetts.Thank you for doing the research and working diligently with your relocation office and ultimately introducing Tia who did an amazing job and helped us to find this home for us. Thank you for our friendship and for all your support in making this happen. It was extremely nice of you to spend time looking for a good real estate agent for us in Boston and your selection and recommendation of Tia was not only great, but extremely timely. Again, I thank you and your company for your important part in helping us with this home search. Overall experience with Tia and all the associated people, Moy from wells and Sarah the attorney and your introductions to Tia made this all come together nicely. We could not have asked for a better process and experience during the purchase of this home. Thank you. With best regards, Very Happy and Satisfied Buyers

To say this has been an insane market to buy a new home in would be an understatement.

And….to say we had the best realtor in the entire industry and beyond, would also be an understatement.Marina Leung made buying a home a seamless process in a market the likes of which we haven’t seen, maybe ever. From her stellar team and loan broker recommendation to her unrivaled work ethic, Marina made the impossible happen for us. We were helping our son with a home purchase for a move to CA for his new job. We had only a few months to make this transaction happen in a market with perhaps the lowest inventory in history. Not only did Marina find us the perfect home, get our offer accepted by doing the work to figure out how to present us as the best buyer, help us find fire insurance in an impossible fire zone area and do the final walkthrough because we were out of town, her crowning achievement was booking a flight to CT when the lender required all buyers to sign closing docs on the SAME DAY, even though we are in 2 different states. She flew to CT for the first signing and ferried the documents back to CA that same day to arrive at our home at 9pm with her notary so we could meet the lender’s requirement. Not once did she waver in her commitment to us and to an industry she is proud to serve. I, quite frankly, have never seen such commitment in any transaction.If you are serious about buying or selling a home, Marina should be your realtor.

Pam J.

Can't thank Lisa and Jeff for helping us get our first home!

They were easy to work with - responsive, professional, knowledgeable, and going the extra mile for us. They guided us through step by step as first time homebuyers and answered any questions we may have. Highly recommend Lisa and Jeff as your realtor!

"Gaylene is awesome!

!! She is the real estate agent everyone dreams to have. She is very down to the earth but also very professional. She provided us thorough review of market analysis for our home and strategized for us to put it in the market. As soon as our home was vacant, she helped us put the house together from cleaning, staging, to photographs. The house looked like a model home which brought a significant amount of traffic to view our home. Because of her knowledge, she priced our home strategically with the goal of getting multiple offers, which we did. Her project management and communication skills are superb; she kept us informed on all important communication frequently between us and potential buyers. She followed up with potential buyer’s agents to ensure their interests and also cross checked on their qualification of funding before acceptance of an offer to ensure a smooth transaction. No matter what time of days we contacted her, she always responded to our inquiries promptly and followed through our questions or concerns even after close of escrow. We ended up selling our home $27k higher than the original asking price and closed within 30 days. What an amazing job she did!!! We are so happy to use Gaylene and you know what. We consider ourselves high maintenance and not every topnotch Irvine/Newport agents can handle us well, but she did it. Even though we are moving to San Diego area, we will definitely buy our next home with her in the near future. If you don’t use her, it will be your loss."

The Zwolak group is first class service all the way.

We listed our home within days of the pandemic, and we were nervous about the unknown state of the economy and housing market. Jason talked us through everything and and we decided on a virtual tour. Right away we received multiple offers. We had the self proclaimed resident realtor tell us we would never receive the asking price and that we should accept her low ball offer. Jason knew we could get the asking price because that was the legitimate value. And....boom we got it. Once we received the offer, we started looking for a new home to raise our family. Jason held our hand the entire way and prepared us for the sellers market. With the pandemic, there aren't as many homes listed but Jason Kept the encouragement alive. He knows the market very well, how to strategically place an offer, and had a great poker face to get us what we wanted. What's really great is the virtual explanation of nearby supporting comps. This way you know the value of your purchase and can literally see the homes like it so you know you are paying what it's worth. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you and call you a lifelong friend.

"I chose you as Realtors because you have had a presence in the neighborhood over the last year, and more importantly, you both have degrees in finance.

You really know how to manage the listing for the highest return and I felt, that with the small size of this house, that it was the most important factor. Your advice from a year ago did not fall on deaf ears. I hope you are proud of the result that you inspired. I have every confidence that you will continue to succeed in real estate, regardless of the status of the market. Thank you for considering my house in your endeavors." Susan, Tustin Ranch

Great team to work with!

Karen was more than helpful in finding us a house in OC that fits right in our price range! She was assertive, extremely communicative and easy to reach to answer any of our questions at all times. Professional. On top of all things. Karen made the house buying process in this market a breeze!

Martha Hernandez

Jackie did a great job helping us buy our home in Lake Forest.

This was our second home purchase, so we weren't total newbies, but Jackie went above and beyond to make sure we got the right house for our growing family.We first met Jackie as she was shutting down an open house. She  immediately asked what we were looking for, and offered to take us to see three or four homes in the area that same evening. The next weekend, she arranged to show us an additional four or five homes, ultimately resulting in our decision to put an offer in on the first house. After agreeing with the seller on a price, she helped us through an incredibly fast 14 day escrow and pushed to make sure everything went smoothly.I highly recommend Jackie for the South Orange County (Irvine/Lake Forest) area.

From Jamie.

.. About 4 months ago we met with Sandi and she outlined all of our options. We decided the best thing for us would be to sell our home and buy something a bit bigger...She then helped us determine what we needed to do to our home to get it into tip-top condition. Sandi's suggestions, a little elbow grease over one weekend (yup, that's all it took) and $200 was all we needed to make our home ready. Before Sandi would let us accept an offer, she looked us both straight in the eyes and asked,"Do you feel absolutely certain that you have not left any money on the table and that this is the right buyer for your home?" Without hesitation we both said,"yes!" We never felt pressured. And we felt unbelievably comfortable with Sandi and extremely well taken care of. And best of all...we sold our home!

Maria was beyond our expectations for a realtor.

She was so kind throughout the process and never failed to answer any of our questions. Whenever we had questions or wanted to call her, she was always available. She is awesome! She made our process so easy and stress-free.

Alana Nguyen

Jackie is outstanding and the best in her field.

My experience selling my home seamless. Jackie is very easy to work with, consistently answered my questions and made sure I was informed at every step through the process. Jackie’s recommendations throughout the process were spot on. Definitely someone you can trust when it comes to selling and buying a home.

Lois Johnson

Mana provided the best service all around.

..A+++++++++++++++. She was very fast to respond. We could reach her day or night. She was knowledgeable and provided sound advice. She was a very strong advocate on our side. And she really went above and beyond the call of duty for us. We've made a friend, as well as a real estate professional contact who we can turn to in the future. I will highly recommend her to others in need of a very professional, considerate, punctual, and personable Realtor. Roxanne Hinely.  

Cathy is an amazing broker!

Very knowledgeable about the market and a true hustler. She goes above and beyond and is extremely responsive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to a friend or colleague.

Jimmy & Eleanor Yung

Maria was so great in this search for a place to live.

She was so responsive, and really cared about everything as if we have been friends with her for years. I felt like the whole process was incredibly personal, which is so important.

Brennan Doyle

They really took the time to get to know my husband and I and what our wishlist was along with what our unique family needs were.

They were able to answer many questions about the market and the area as well... We love learning about market updates and advice/tips from Jason's podcasts. Jason and Susan have such a wonderful personality that quickly turns your professional real estate agents into friends. We are thrilled that our friend introduced us to Jason and Susan. They have been super informative, supportive, honest, and have gone above and beyond in their support for us. We had a great experience and we highly recommend them!

Grace is a very helpful nd nice person.

She is always willing to help others. She is professional in real estate. I will highly recommend her to my friends.

Monique is a fantastic agent who is passionate about helping her clients find the right home for them.

On two occasions, I thought I had found a great house and was ready to put an offer but she told me to be a bit more patient because it wasn't exactly what we were looking for in the first place. So glad I followed her advice! She found the perfect home for our family and helped us so much with the paper work. She was with us at every step of the process. I am so grateful to have met her on this journey to home ownership.

This letter is to tell you how delighted we are with the terrific job that Janice Konkol did as our agent in selling our house in Irvine.

She was knowledgeable, responsive, flexible, thorough, personable and easy to work with, and she really exceeded our desires and expectations in every way in making what was virtually a “dream” sale happen. We interviewed five other agents and chose Janice because she listened and responded thoughtfully to our questions, had a clear and smart listing strategy, and had highly complimentary references. We immediately warmed to her personally because she has a straight-forward manner, doesn’t brag about herself, and just states facts and her judgement clearly and honestly. In preparing to stage and show, Janice told us what she thought we should do (clearing clutter, etc.) but was flexible and understanding when we resisted certain things. Then she really showed her worth when she brought in her own furniture, pictures, accessories, etc., and spent considerable time doing a complete staging. We were stunned with how much she did and how beautiful it turned out to be. We know that many other agents charge for this service. We listed on a Wednesday, and Janice began showing with open houses on Saturday and Sunday. She estimates that more than 150 people came through. By Monday we had six offers, and two more on Tuesday. On Wednesday we accepted an all cash offer over our listing price with the buyer allowing us to stay in the house for two months at no cost. During the escrow process Janice also shined. She was here for each inspection (general and termite), she recommended good people to do necessary repairs and was here at our request when we could not be to supervise some of the workmen. She even advanced payment to one when we couldn’t be here! She was flexible with things such as arranging buyer visits and moving our furniture back in after the sale, and she always responded quickly to questions and requests. We closed escrow in 32 days with hardly a hitch. We have bought and sold several houses and are very particular clients. We rarely, if ever, write compliments like this. Janice, however, is a gem and truly deserving of professional accolades. We would be happy to have you share this letter with whomever you wish (except our contact information) and happy to speak with anyone about it with prior notice.

Max Carr recently handled the sale of my Irvine home.

It was a pleasure to work experienced realtors who demonstrated expertise, exemplary service, and strong negotiation skills. When I first met with Max, he presented a strong marketing plan, which resulted in a rapid sale at a price significantly higher than my asking price. At the beginning of the process, they asked me if my goal was selling the home as soon as possible or maximizing the home’s value. I wanted a good return on the sale, and they worked closely with me to achieve that. She helped me select a tradesman to paint the home, install new flooring, and upgrade the master bathroom and kitchen. they managed the entire process for me and ensured that all the work was performed to high expectations. The end result was a beautiful home that had over 3,000 hits on Zillow and that sold at a price that paid for the upgrades I had done many times over. As a result of their marketing, I had about a dozen offers on the property, and Max negotiated with the buyers to maximize my return. They’re great people, too! I give them my highest recommendation.

Nancy has been so amazing!

She has been so patient as finding a place for my budget has been challenging. Nancy really cares about her clients and builds and develops a personal relationship with them. I am happy to call Nancy a friend and not just a realtor. Will definitely recommend Nancy to all my friends and family!! Hope to work with her again soon!

Sarah R.

I had a very short window to rent my condo as my tenants of 5 years gave us a notice that they would be moving out.

Then they requested to move out earlier than their least contract. Even-thought my fiance`is a realtor, I wanted to work with someone who is an expert matter in the Quail Hills / Irvine area and I knew I had to call Mana. She really took care of us as if it was her own business. She put everything in the right order for us from giving us an assessment of what fixes needed to be done in the house, to providing us with recommendations, vendor list, and taking charge to ensure that the house is perfectly ready to be rented. She was very agile and in 24 hours my house was on the market, and I had a list of all action items. In less than 20 days my house was fully painted, cleaned, renovated and I had new great tenants. As we live in LA, Mana was kind enough to take several trips to my condo to check on the work that was being on on the house, and she made sure everything is "Perfect", for me and my new tenants. I could not have done this without Mana. Anyone who engages in doing business with Mana is very lucky, with guaranteed success. Many stars......

Truly appreciate Nancy expertise.

She walk me and my husband through the homebuying process. We truly wouldn’t have got thru this process without her help. Thank you for creating the forever memories for my family.

Becky was very easy to work with.

She always kept us in the know. We’re happy with her service.

Peter Lee

Nancy is the ultimate professional.

She was born to be a real estate agent. Great communication and extremely organized. She has also surrounded herself by a great team of individuals who oversee every step of the buying process. I am was very impressed and I'm looking forward to more transactions with her.

Payam Shabboui

Max and Cathy are an amazing team.

They were instrumental in the success of purchasing my new home. They made it smooth when all other factors were at odds. I can’t thank them enough and highly recommend them.

Cassandra M.

I contacted Jackie for a friend to find out if her value in her home in Lake Forest is enough to refinance at this time.

Jackie picked up the phone quickly, is extremely knowledgeable about the area & gave me immediate answers to my questions. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy  or sell in the Lake Forest area. Thank you Jackie for your consultation.

Debbie Angulo

We met Lisa at an open house in Tustin.

It was her warm and friendly personality that made a great first impression. Not only was she extremely gracious, her knowledge of the Orange County area and market was quite impressive. After our initial visit we knew we had found the right real estate agent to help us find our dream home. We began our hunt for a home that could meet our needs in a neighborhood that was up to our standards. Lisa had grasped our overall vision and never wasted our time bringing us to homes that were out of the scope of our criteria. Houses were selling like hot cakes at the time and though we put bids on several we lost out on a few. What stood out to me about Lisa was her gift of encouragement. She would always say, "don't be discouraged, the right house will come along, the house meant just for you". And she was right! We found the perfect house, it was much more than we could of ever imagined or expected in a charming neighborhood. It hit everything on our wish list and more! Lisa and Jeff are a fabulous team. The process was very smooth for the most part, their professionalism, experience and expertise were more than enough to deal with any challenge that came our way. Oh and did I mention, they were always available by phone or in person. We are so grateful to them for the beautiful home we now live in. If your looking for a personable, knowledgeable, no pressure, always available, and just wonderfully "kind" real estate agents, Jeff and Lisa are the best!

Robbin & Steve, Tustin

Debbie and Sandi went above and beyond to make our deal close.

From staging the home to getting creative during negotiations, they took care of everything!  They met numerous handymen and repair people and even would pick up packages left for us during escrow after we had already moved to the east coast. They helped with so many little issues, we couldn't have done this without them! Thank you Sandi and Debbie!

Joan has been tutoring me for the past year while I was taking an online Mandarin course. I struggled with the class, so I contacted her for help. I was blown away by her worth ethic, teaching skills, and overall commitment to me as a student. She has never been late once and every time I’m with her she has a positive attitude and keeps me motivated even if I’m feeling drowsy. I have learned a lot with her. She is great because of her passion for teaching students and ability to work with each individual student’s needs. Ashely, 05/15/2016

I had a really good experience with Maria.

I felt good about her the first day of our meeting. She patiently explained and gave me a clear picture of how the process would work going forward. Maria was very attentive and very informative from beginning of the process to the very end at closing. All my questions were answered, she kept me informed by calling, texting and emailing me daily. She is nice and friendly, easy to work with and always made me part of the team and I appreciate the inclusiveness. Maria will be my future realtor and will be recommended to my friends, family and anyone I know looking to sell or buy a house. Thank you Maria for selling my house so quickly!!!

2017 To Whom It May Concern: It is our pleasure to recommend Murray and Amy Falk to our family, friends and associates in Irvine, CA. We have lived in the Northwood area of Irvine for twenty years and worked with Murray and Amy on three transactions. Each time we were impressed with their courtesy, professionalism and attentive service. Stress and worry were minimized, because we knew that Murray and Amy were ready for every deadline, every detail. Finally, in our experience their market insight and advice has always been spot on in terms of pricing, timing, and negotiation. If you are looking for someone you can trust to advocate aggressively on your behalf, while maintaining the highest levels honesty, integrity and ethics, we hope you will consider giving Murray and Amy a call.

I have had the pleasure of doing business with Nancy Aynehchi.

She is very professional, knowledgeable. I highly recommend Nancy to anyone in Orange County. The confidence I see in her, makes me believe work is going to get done correctly and swiftly.

Carole wasn't just a real estate agent, she was our "real estate angel"!

!!   We relocated to SoCal for job change, and had to find a home in a hurry. Carole was referred to us at work and it couldn't have worked out any better!  Given our situation of moving in from out of state with short notice, Carole helped us throughout the entire process. This meant finding the right home, in the right area, for the right price and at the right time. And she got it done, right on time and right on budget! Carole's knowledge and expertise made for a smooth and quick transaction, utilizing the latest in technology to help us get all the necessary paperwork filled out correctly and avoiding anypitfalls. Her networking skills with other business-related areas that we needed was a real bonus! Then when the job situation changed, Carole came to our rescue- again, representing us as Sellers. And now her knowledge and expertise helped us get our home sold in record time.  To Carole, many thanks for your expert and professional help, thanks for being there for us in avery stressful time, and thanks for all your hard and dedicated work! You are a "real estate angel" indeed!!!   Thank you!!! PS- And when we are able to move back to SoCal in the future, guess who's getting the call-   Carole Mancini, of course!!!

CHERI & TOM GRODSKI

Don't let that sweet exterior fool you - Carole is tenacious and a dog on a bone when it comes to negotiations!

 She knows how to get the job done and sold my home with multiple offers in three days, during a "slow period" in 2013!  She guided me with patience and handled the whole process with ease and confidence.  The whole process was smooth and stress-free.  I'm grateful for Carole and her dedication and professionalism in helping me sell my home.  I couldn't recommend anyone else more.  She's my Realtor for life!     

DAN LONG

Thorough, diligent, flexible and accommodating.

Vickie is a real pro and an invaluable asset in negotiating and closing any real estate deal.

Mike Gabrawy

I can sum up Marina's real estate support in one word, 'Wow!

'. I have been buying and selling real estate, both personal and income properties, for 30 years and have never had a real estate agent as capable as Marina Leung. Marina's strategy of hosting a neighbor wine & cheese party and multiple open houses sold my ocean front condominium for top dollar very quickly. She also helped me identify and locate the perfect single family home that I purchased. Her willingness to help me submit an offer on a holiday enabled me to buy my home in a very competitive market. I will request Marina's expertise for all of my future real estate needs and I recommend her to everyone I know that needs assistance. -- Ed. D.

Completely through and knowledgeable.

James and Karen Bragstad

Gay's initial walk through she requested the house be organized such that prospective buyers could visualize their belongings in the house.

I had multiple offers within 2 days, and more offers that followed. Her market knowledge, professional photos and expertise sold the house. Thanks.

David Alloy

Dear Mary Kay, I can't tell you how very much I appreciate everything you did to make this move happen.

Your efforts, both professional and personal, were simply outstanding. Just to say "Thank you" doesn't really begin to express my gratitude. You provided a standard that will be hard to equal.

Gail F.

Working with Nancy has been a great experience!

She was very kind, on time, knowledgeable and super helpful. She helped make this processes easier, I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an agent!

Terra A.

Selecting the right professional real estate agent is very important and a difficult task.

We interviewed three agents when we planned to sell our house in the Columbus Grove Community. Martin and Laura Uribe are the one that impressed us the most. They are the super star team, who provided us with the expertise and knowledge of the local real estate market that we needed. They hired a top notch photographer to take the professional photographs of our house. We enjoyed working with Martin and Laura as they were very organized, professional, friendly and excellent service. They provided us feedbacks on every Open House and updated us on what is going on with the property. They showed a lot of patience in answering all our questions and doubts we put forward as we were concerned about putting our house on the market. They helped us put the house at the right market price and developing a strategy, including social media to generate traffic and therefore interest buyers for our house. Our expectations were completely fulfilled and are very satisfied with the result. We were able to get an offer within a month of listing on the market. We would say hands down, go with Martin and Laura, and we already did refer a neighbor who was on the fence about choosing an agent.

S&J

Terry has been a very valuable addition to the First Team Executive Management Team.

He is a dedicated professional, goes out of his way to find solutions, and is gracious in all of his interactions with employees, agents and consumers. He has brought a new energy to our team and we're proud of all of his contributions and accomplishments this past year.

Lori Namazi

Vickie cared about people.

That’s the best quality you can have for realtor.

NICOLAS HANCOCK

We recently worked with Nancy on purchasing our home after receiving a recommendation from a coworker.

This is our first time buying, and buying long distance, at that. We were excited but also overwhelmed by the idea of trying to buy a home in a new area while we were still juggling our busy schedules hours away. Nancy really put us at ease and made the process so much better than we expected! She took the time to get to know our families’ needs and listened to what we wanted. When we made the trip out to look at houses in what would soon be our new city, we were automatically impressed by Nancy’s ability to find houses that matched what we were looking for. She really understood our taste and what was most important to us for purchasing. She continued to take good care of us throughout the whole buying process and really went above and beyond, even after our purchase was complete, making sure that everything was taken care of while we were away. We really feel lucky to have worked with Nancy, trusted her judgement, and plan to continue to work with her in the future! Highly recommend!

Paula

I have been with a few different companies over my real estate career, and dealt with many managers and people who are in charge of hundreds of agents.

In my dealings with these people I have never come across anyone like Terry. Although he has created massive success in his real estate career, he is very humble and treats everyone as his equal. He is truly "one of us." I have come to him with many different challenges and without exception he has made time for me, and not only "helped" me but given me a concrete solution and a plan. Terry doesn't just "give you a fish" he teaches you "how to fish." Of the many things that I admire about Terry is this... In this competitive industry (real estate) there is tremendous pressure from Corporate placed on upper management to put the company first. And that being said, one of the things that really stands out about Terry is that he always puts the individual agent first! And in doing that he makes the entire company much better. And as Billionaire Richard Branson says "Your biggest value in business isn't your customers, it is your employees, if you take great care of your employees, they will take great care of your customers! That is exactly what Terry does, and thus we ALL benefit from his philosophy! My only regret about Terry is that I didn't meet him a long time ago!

Gregg Perrah

Dear Sandi and Debbie, Now that things are beginning to "settle" in with my new Lake Forest house, I simply want to thank you for the exceptional guidance, help and support you have provided me these last few months.

Not unexpectedly, I found you to have the highest standards of professionalism and expertise. You went "beyond the call of duty" in helping me with the sale of my home, and the purchase and decorating of my house. Remember, dinner on me when you and Gerard are available. Bruce

Having lived in several places on multiple continents we know how difficult it can be to find the right real estate agent and premise to live.

Monique was among the most professional Real Estate professionals we ever came across. While visiting another house she quickly understood or needs and directed us to a perfect home. The whole process and follow-up was handled as it should be (clear steps and agreements, on time and in a friendly way). We would be very happy to work with her again.

Highly likely to recommend  3/13/2018 -  zuser20170421152319918   Bought a home in 2018 in Oak Creek, Irvine, CA 92618.

5 Star ratings in all area: Local knowledge,  Process expertise,  Responsiveness,  negotiation skills.My family met Carol at one of her open houses by chance. She was so kind and knowledgeable that we didn't hesitate to get her help in searching for our new home in Irvine, CA! She wrote down my family's preferences on homes very carefully and did a comprehensive research on available homes in the  market that fit our needs perfectly. It was so hard to pick the best one out of her list because most of them were so great. She even worked until midnight to make a timely proposal so that we didn't lose the opportunity. I was so happy when I heard from an on-site agent at a model home office that my agent was so great and nice. Carol is the best in town!

We first met Cathy in an open house.

Her knowledge and experience in the local market, professionalism and sincerity left us a deep impression. During the cooperation, she demonstrated accurate judgment, high skills in communication, and focus on details, which were very helpful for the quick win. She also leads a very efficient team who always responded promptly and put our needs in the first place. We greatly appreciate their help in our home purchase experience. Wish you and your team good luck, Cathy!

My wife and I recently bought a home in Lake Forest and we were not aware how stressful the process can get.

Two of my very close friends recommended Lisa and Jeff and we wanted to meet and give it a shot. From the moment my wife and I met them we knew we were in good hands. They were well prepared even before meeting with us. They explained all the aspects of buying a house and answered every single question we asked (we had a lot since this was our first home). They are the perfect couple working in harmony. If one of them is busy with something the other one was there to rescue. Any realtor can show you houses but you know see the difference especially after you open escrow. Lisa and Jeff were well prepared and knowledgeable to make the escrow process easy. They were very information during the process and on top of any issues that came up during the process. They were following up on issues with seller's realtor even after the escrow was closed to get them done. Lisa and Jeff treated us like we were a part of their family. It doesn't matter if you are buying 300K house or 3M, they make you feel like you are buying a 30M house... I don't think anyone could even get closer to the quality of their service. If you are trying to decide who to pick as your realtor in OC, you HAVE to call Lisa and Jeff before you make any decisions. Onur & Elif, Lake Forest

Jason and Susan are THE best Realtors in OC.

They helped us find our first home in OC and of course we had them as our realtors when we had to sell that home due to an out of state job transfer. When buying, they made the entire process so easy and seamless for us and we got the first home we put an offer on. When selling, they met us at the house multiple times before going on the market to walk us through what we needed to do. They had a professional take photos of the house after we staged it with our own furniture. They did a grand opening 4 days after putting the house on the market and we had 3 offers at asking on the opening weekend (and it went for over asking!). If you want excellent service and amazing realtors who make the entire process seamless whether you're buying or selling, call Jason and Susan!!!

Tammy S

The prospect of buying your first home can be very intimidating.

Jackie put us at ease immediately and patiently guided us through the process. We wound up with a home beyond our expectations and well within our budget. The experience was so beneficial to us, that we have and continue to recommend  Jackie Stashik to all of our friends in the buying and selling market.

Kathy Goebel

Mana was absolutely fantastic.

..She not only met with us on rainy days but she was also quick to respond to any inquiries we had. She was very proactive and well informed about the industry and Orange County area. Thank you Mana for sticking with us in our search over the past year. You never let  us give up and we have you to thank for helping us finally find our perfect home. Michael & Samantha Marriott.

Maria was my agent during my purchase of a new construction condominium.

I couldn't have asked an agent that did do more to look out for my best interests. She took the time to explain to me everything to consider during the buying process, and helped every step of the way. She has an amazing attention to detail which made me feel confident that nothing was overlooked. She was willing to provide whatever level of support I needed to get the home I wanted. I have bought homes in the past, but never has an agent done more to demonstrate that my best interest were their primary concern. I would recommend Maria to anyone looking for their ideal home.

Carol did an outstanding job of finding us our beautiful new home!

Being new to the area, she used her expertise in locating properties and tailoring the search to meet our needs. Carol did a wonderful job communicating throughout the entire process. She explained each step along the way, working with our lender and escrow company to ensure a smooth process. Carol’s networking skills with other agents and real estate companies proved invaluable when putting an offer in homes in an active market. This was a big advantage in finding our new home and the area we wanted to be in. We give Carol Kornievsky our highest recommendation and thanks for all her hard work and efforts. We couldn’t be happier!

Murray is a consummate professional who knows his business inside and out.

Having years of unparalleled experience and negotiating skills behind him, he is at the top in the industry and has guided me into making the right decision every time. Having completed the fourth real estate transaction with Murray at the helm, I highly recommend him and would never go anywhere else. Plus, he is a super nice guy.

This was our first time working with an agent in the purchase of a home.

Everything was handled in a straight forward and clear manner.  The experience was smooth, stress-free and convenient, and communication with Jason and Susan was easy; they made the 30-day escrow appear effortless.  They delivered service above our expectations, and we’d absolutely recommend them to others.

From day one Carole was outstanding.

She was very responsive and professional. She is super sweet. She was informative about the leasing process. I am so grateful for her and i will definitely recommend her to my family and friends.

Alejandra & Fabian Ruiz

Working with Dean was a real pleasure.

He made the whole process so easy for us. After listening to what we were looking for, he spent his weekends previewing homes. One day, he sent us a video of a house he had just visited. Well, he knew us really well because that's the house we ended up buying! We highly recommend doing business with Dean for one main reason: he really cares about his clients and always makes you feel like you are his priority.

I recently closed on my first home thanks to the help of Martin and Laura!

Navigating this process can be scary and unknown and I was a bit fearful that I'd do something wrong or overlook an important piece. I had confidence that Martin and Laura were watching out for me and my best interest through the entire process. They were quick to respond when I found properties that I was interested in and helped me navigate around bad areas and deals that seemed "too good to be true". I also appreciated that as I worked through things after the sale they were still available to answer questions and provide suggestions or solutions for me. It wasn't a relationship that ended the second the sale was complete and I can't tell you how thankful I was for that.

Gene Turley is an exceptional real estate agent.

 I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.  He was on top of everything and went out of his way to help me get a Power of Attorney and also came to my office to pick up keys or paperwork when needed.  You should hire him!

Susan

"Gaylene was very helpful every step of the selling process and even afterwards with the escrow.

She was organized and on top of every detail. I highly recommend her as an agent to represent your property."

William and Kelly Rhee

It is a great experience to work with Grave again.

Danny Chu

Both Martin and Laura did a great job in marketing and selling our house.

Their marketing plan included both local as well key international regions with mention on all property websites which greatly helped to bring in added traffic. They held open houses regularly and were very inviting to the potential buyers. During the sale process they kept us well informed and diligently followed up with all potential leads. At the time of the Close, all of the paperwork were handled professionally and accurately. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an experienced realtor.

Raj Thakur

We have known Martin and Laura for several years now and they have handled multiple real estate transactions for us.

We recently were looking to purchase a new home and once we located a property, our first call was to Martin and Laura. We trust not only their expertise in the local and regional market, but we also trust their opinion. We could have easily worked with the listing agent, but our gut told us we needed an advocate who would look out for our best interest. Without a doubt, we have found 2 of the most dedicated, knowledgeable, and ethical people in the business. They not only understand the real estate portion of the transaction, but helped guide us through the 3rd party vendors (appraisal, inspection, escrow, and mortgage). There are hundreds, if not thousands of agents who can help you with a real estate transaction, but only 2 who I would stake my name and reputation on. I am happy they are my agents and even more proud to call them "friends"!

Eddie G.

Couldn't be more pleased with my realtor, Tracy.

She is diligent and professional which are the characters one needs to close the deal. We would not have closed our deal if it were not for Tracy.

Alivia B.

1)      When I clicked on Phoebe to contact me, she called within 5 minutes.

I was very impressed with that responsiveness. I chose the team of Phoebe Chiang and Theresa Wen to represent me on the sale of my family home and could not be happier with their work. They knew the business, the area, and the market very well. I wanted a quick sale at a fair price without leaving any money on the table. I listed the property with them and with three days on the market, we had an offer. two days later we had two more full price offers. On the fifth day, I signed a full price offer and two full price backup offers. They were very knowledgeable and helpful through the entire escrow process. I believe in my heart that I could not have chosen a better team for the sale of my home. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell, as they are professional, knowledgeable, conscientious, caring, hard -working, and always available.

Maria was absolutely wonderful!

Very helpful and very patient. We probably looked through 8 houses and she was so glad to show us and help us find the best option for our family! When we didn’t like the homes we saw, she suggested two lists more to us! I really appreciate that she did that for us because we finally found the best home for us. She was just the best real estate agent we found in about 10 years of being here in California. I would 10/10 definitely recommend her to everyone!

Lily Nguyen

Maria is so sweet.

She is enthusiiastic, responsibility, reliable lady. Next I sell house or buy house. I still looking for her help. she a.lways do the best for client.

WINNIE

I've been in new home sales for over 10 years and Maria represented a client on a purchase for my community in Irvine.

She was extremely professional and courteous from the start. She was very thorough and made sure she understood the process before she had her client take the next step. Maria fought for her client and negotiated a great deal for him. If I wasn't a licensed real estate agent myself I would hire Maria to represent me in my real estate transactions. She was a pleasure to work with!

Amna Gaafar

What a fantastic experience!

Debbie engaged early, identified our likes/dislikes, our wants and our needs, and then rolled up her sleeves to deliver a selection of homes that completely surpassed our expectations! Her obvious effort coupled with her high level of care and professionalism are commendable! We are more than pleased by our experience....we are estatic supporters and champions of her services!

My husband and I were so fortunate to get Sandi as our realtor!

We moved to Orange County from out of state last year and didn't know anything about the area. Sandi went above and beyond in helping us get to know the area and find our home and we couldn't have been happier! We looked at over 20 properties in the few days we had to go house hunting and Sandi not only took time to show us the properties, she took us on tours of the different cities and neighborhoods we were most interested in. She is very personable and easy to talk to. She answered all our questions and made sure we understood everything about the buying process in CA. Once we'd decided on the home we wanted, she worked extensively with the other realtor to negotiate the best deal possible for us. She was very professional and on top of things and knows the market very well with her years of experience. We never felt that we had to worry about anything - we knew we were in good hands and that she'd do everything possible to help us get our home at a good price. We're grateful for all that she did and would recommend her to anyone else moving into the area!

Brittney & David

Great team to work with!

Karen was more than helpful in finding us a house in OC that fits right in our price range! She was assertive, extremely communicative and easy to reach to answer any of our questions at all times. Professional. On top of all things. Karen made the house buying process in this market a breeze!

Martha Hernandez

I like to start assuring you that Nancy is THE BEST agent you can ask for.

You will not regret working with her and getting to know her. My husband and I found Nancy through reviews. Nancy is very experienced and has a very good review online. I called Nancy and she was very helpful. We started working with her and in less than 4 months, we found a place we're in love with. Nancy is a knowledgable, resourceful and punctual agent. She realizes the problems in the house at first glance. She is also very good at recommending people for remodeling after the purchase. We loved our experience with Nancy and she is going to be our lifetime agent:)

Elnaz Talaei

Tracy have been of a great help by the past, so it was not a question who to call when we have been on the market for a new rental again.

She has been super reactive and listening to our special needs. A listing available 2 hours after the first request, one visit the day after, and we signed 2 days after only !

Guewen & Nelly Reynaud

Meriam is amazing, so honest highly professional.

I got my house in less than a month. She is very dedicated,almost devoted her time for me to get my house. I am so happy with Meriam performance and fully recommend her to anybody searching house. Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Anaheim Hills, Anaheim, CA.

Great to work with and very responsive.

Was able to close on a deal with tight timeline.

Paresh & Kalpita Patel

We recently purchased 122 and 124 Avento in Irvine.

They were brand new homes so the paperwork was a little complex. Nancy and her team made sure that we feel comfortable with each and every form. It was a long process due to construction and customization. We were always informed of every step so we were able to stay on top of thing even with our busy schedules. We could not be happier with our homes and appreciate the opportunity to work with Nancy!

T. Nguyen

It was a pleasure working with Nancy renting our property, she made the process seem less and was able to find us a tenant is less than 7 days for full asking price.

She kept us informed and up to date throughout the whole process and I would definitely recommend her to friends and family.

Mary S.

We worked with Nancy Aynehchi on finding our new rental property.

She’s friendly and takes her time to make sure all of our questions were answered. She goes above beyond her duties as a realtor, she allowed us on multiple occasions to view our new soon to be home to obtain measurements, and even to show the home to our kids. It’s been really great working with her, her responsiveness assures us anything will be taken care of right away.

Mike Faust

We recently sold our second home with Nancy Aynehchi of First Team Estates and once again we are very pleased with the results.

Nancy is very thorough in her research of the homes in the area to come up with the right price to get our home sold as soon as possible. Trusting her with the details was easy to do because she is very confident in her business. She went above and beyond to sell our home, even staging our home to make our home show like a model. She had beautiful photos taken with marketing material. She has a system when she puts the home up for sale and hosts a grand opening open house and it worked again (like it did with our other house)! We had an offer within one day! We closed escrow within two weeks! She is great at communicating updates as well. Thank you, Nancy!

Julie Brand

"Gaylene is the only realtor I will ever use again.

She sold our home for over asking in Irvine and negotiated the beautiful ocean view home we purchased in San Clemente. She’s a great realtor and goes above and beyond to service her clients. Professional, experienced, friendly, and has a strong commitment to doing what’s best for her clients. Love her loyalty! We plan on selling our San Clemente home in the near future and she’s the realtor I’ll use. We’ll be selling in the 2million dollar range and I know she’ll work hard to get the best price for our home. She offers her expertise in presenting your home for sale. She’s amazing!"

     5 Stars in all Catigories: Local knowledge,  Process expertise,  Responsiveness,  Negotiation skillsWe had a wonderful experience with Carol! From the beginning of our home search process, Carol listened attentively to what we were looking for and always kept us top of mind. Being 1st time home buyers, Carol held our hands along each step of the way and was very supportive of us both  professionally and personally. In a super competitive market, Carol was able to get our offer to the top of the list and make it easy on both sides. We're happy to have a home to call our own now.Thanks Carol!

We moved out of state from September, 2008 to June, 2012.

During this time, Mary Kay helped us with lease agreements for two separate tenants. Additionally, she helped manage our property while contractors completed projects and more. We have known Mary Kay for nearly 15 years and would highly recommend her for current and future real estate needs. ~ Michelle & Brian C.

Vida is a very knowledgeable, proactive and agile agent.

She always demonstrated initiative to show as many places as possible for us and was always available over text message and phone, replying in less than minutes with answers to our question. She also guided us through the whole process, from the very first searches to the closing of escrow, giving smart insights and recommendations. I would highly recommend her to anybody. 

Will Murai

Maria is a truly amazing agent to work with!

! She help my mom find her place which is not an easy task to accomplish given the tight budget and her picky nature. (My mom has tried working with several agents before Maria) She's was always available, always on top of any open homes that met my mom's criteria and in just a pleasure to work with. Throughout the long process (months!!) of house searching, my mom only had positive and warm remarks about Maria. Being able to speak both Chinese and English fluently made it easy for the three of us to communicate. Not to mention my mom does NOT drive, and Maria drove her to countless places during the process. We ran into a few issues and Maria was always quick to help us wherever she can and did it all with a pleasant attitude. I highly recommend Maria and would not hesitate to go to her again for home purchasing needs. In addition to her strong work ethics, her being a consistent warm and friendly presence throughout this stressful ordeal made home buying bearable. Thank you so much Maria!

Lianna Tai

Gaylene did a excellent job helping us find our fantastic home.

We took our time looking for the just right house to buy and Gaylene was very patient and always had a good list of homes to show us. Her professionalism and experience really paid off in going over the pros and cons of each house we saw. When we found the right house Gaylene had all the connections to make the purchase go smoothly without any issues. I knew we were in very good hands with Gaylene on our side. I highly recommend Gaylene to anyone looking to buy or sell their home,

"You had the insight on how we had selected you as agents.

We felt comfortable with you. We saw your advertisement in the mail and decided to contact you. You were open in sharing information and were fair with identifying the value (not low-balling, nor showing us higher value to get our business). It was just the gut feeling that we were dealing with professionals. Jeff has a style that puts one at ease - and Lisa complements that too, both very professional. We appreciate the effort you put in." Dan and Manisha, Irvine

Nancy was very professional and looked after our best intest.

She is very knowledgeable in real estate.

Paul Sikand

About midway through 2020 my dad passed away and I was tasked with selling his home.

I'm young, and this was my very first time really working with a real estate agent. I was referred to Nancy as she is an expert in our area and in real estate, and she proved it all the way through! Nancy was patient, kind, dedicated, thorough, thoughtful, and most of all, incredible in her work. Within one week she had found multiple offers for the home, at a price much higher than it's original appraisal. Nancy successfully sold the home as the highest reported sale price in the area. She was incredible, and she was always available for my many questions and phone calls throughout the process. To anyone looking for an agent, I highly recommend working with Nancy Aynehchi. You will not be disappointed, and I know from my personal experience, that she will put you and your interests in front of her own, and make sure you are treated incredibly throughout the entire process, start to finish, and beyond. After working with her, there is no doubt in my mind that Nancy goes above and beyond the normal duties of a real estate agent, and is the kind of person anyone would want on their team.

Justin Aminian

I highly recommend Mary Kay Barnes to anyone who is looking to buy or sell.

She has been my real estate expert for the last few years helping me stay up to date on the value of my house, assisting me through a rental period and most recently listing and selling my home. Mary Kay is personable & considerate while always being responsive & professional. She is also a great negotiator but does so in a respectful manner. She went above and beyond what I would expect from a real estate agent, from hands on help getting the house spruced up for listing after tenants, coordinating the staging and repairs, to checking up on the vacant property between showings. It was a stressful experience to sell a home as an out of town seller, but Mary Kay was patient, understanding, and did everything she could do to make the whole process as smooth possible. She provided guidance and advice based on her extensive experience and expertise. She gave me the information I needed to make effective decisions throughout the process resulting in one very happy seller.  ~ Christine L.

My husband and I were very impressed with JACKIE STASHIK and her services in selling our home.

From the start, Jackie made herself available to us at all times. She designed an excellent marketing strategy which succeeded in the sale of our home for over $50,000 of our asking price in under two  weeks! One thing we especially appreciated is her ability to help us stay calm during the emotional ups and downs of the process. She also kept up to date and educated us throughout. As a courtesy, Jackie also found us a fantastic rental property in a great neighborhood. This is a can-do, no excuses real estate advisor, and we'd definitely work with her again. Did we mention that we liked her? All and all, we highly recommend her! 

Because of Mana, we were the one of many selected to purchase the house.

There were many offers on the house and she was one of the deciding factor for them. (The seller's Realtor shared that with us.)  Mana was professional, informative and available day or night for us. Even while she was away on a personal vacation we were able to communicate with her. The timing couldn't have been worse when we made the offer on the house. The housing loan situation sprung up just as our offer was presented.  Our loan broker(which we chose independently of Mana) was terrible. With all these challenges, she was most helpful and knowledgeable. It was truly a pleasure working with her. Mana will come highly recommended by both my daughter and myself to anyone we might know who is looking for a property. Michele Chelstelson.

"One of the main things that stood out to me about Gaylene was her professionalism.

She made the entire process about me and what I needed. The agenda was never revolved around her and not once did I feel pressured into something I was not ready for. Perfect example is Gaylene and I were riding around oneSaturday and we were about to look at our 5th property. We arrived and I did not like the property from the outside, but I felt like I needed to get out of the car and go look at the property even though I did not like it. Gaylene immediately realized it was not my favorite and said, "no need to look at it you don't like it lets move on." At this moment I realized I had the best agent. Never did I feel I had to look at something or offer on something I was not ready for. Gaylene talked through multiple scenarios with me and made me realize what I needed to do in order to be competitive in the market. I never was told by Gaylene to offer more or less than what I was thinking. Rather, Gaylene talked through each specific property with me and when I asked for her professional opinion she gave it to me. Gaylene has a way of making buying your first home an enjoyable experience. She has such knowledge of the market and I felt so taken care of the entire time. I could not have imagined going through this process without her."

Alyse Mastropolo

We were so fortunate to have Murray Falk for our realtor when we decided to sell our house.

Murray is knowledgeable, responsive and experienced. He gave us lots of good guidance and suggestions, which helped us go though the selling process. Murray, you are an amazing guy. Can not imagine not having him along to help us through those tough time.... We appreciate his kindness, honesty and integrity. He is the best realtor we have ever seen. Murray, anytime you need a reference, let us be the ones! Thanks a million for everything you've done to help us. Best wishes, Wenli & Peishen

This letter is in regards to the outstanding customer service that we received from Gaylene Rice.

She demonstrated the highest degree of ethical professionalism in the industry as well as being an absolute pleasure to work with. When my husband and I were relocating from Bakersfield to Orange County, Gaylene met with us to show available properties. She was always on time and well prepared with copies of all the listings we would be viewing and even had snacks and water for us if needed. Her knowledge of the neighborhoods and surrounding areas that were of interest to us was very helpful in making our final decision to purchase a home. She negotiated the best deal for us and we are very happy with our new home. My husband and I would highly recommend Gaylene to anyone buying or selling a home and we would gladly work with her again in the future.

Myrth Boozer

I really enjoyed working with Vida to purchase my first home.

Buying a house was a complicated process for me but she made it easy by patiently helping us through every step. She considered our interests with great attention and found several good cases. She and her team were prompt in answering our questions and their responses were to the point. Most importantly Vida and her team are great in closing the deal on time which is important in a competitive markets. 

Farshid Hosseini

Jackie is a very creative and effective negotiator.

We found a home with her last year despite the high amount of competition there was in the sellers marker. We are very impressed with her service and knowledge.

Monique has been helping me with my real estate needs for more than 20 years.

She has done so with integrity, professionalism as well as by putting her client's interests first. I highly recommend Monique without any reservations.
