Eva is a rock star.

She sold my mom's house after she passed and did such a great job that I asked her back to sell ours when we wanted to move to Texas to be near our kids and grandkids. Eva knows how to price the property to create immense interest and has gotten over asking both times I've used her. She also takes the worry away. She is kind, personable, and professional. I love her!!!! I love that she has become a dear friend in the process. She earns every bit of her commission!!!! I'd use her 100 more times!!!

We are so very pleased with Eva and her team.

I have bought my share of homes in my time and I must say Eva and her team were the best by far that I ever had. You surrounded yourself with the best, and it made everything so much easier. You made yourself available 24/7 just like you said you would. Your word is your bond. I consider you my real estate agent as long as your in business and I highly recommend you to anyone thinking of a move. Thanks again Eva for making things run so smoothly!

Thank you for all of your hard work and persistence with Lime!

I think had it been someone else it wouldn't have gone through. I won't ever forget those wonderful days and stumbling upon the palace I now get to call home!  Lee P.

Being first time home buyers, my wife and I had been researching the Orange County market for years, thinking we could find the right place to call home on our own.

It wasn't until repeated misses that we realized we needed the leadership of a professional. Enter Tim Branoff. From the first time we met Tim, we knew he was the right man to trust. His kind, energetic personality is surpassed only by his real estate knowledge. Tim actually took the time to get to know us as people and that made a world of difference when it came to him finding us the right home. Every option he showed us was a serious contender, which left us feeling like we were (finally) in the driver seat in the home buying process. After we found THE home (you'll know it when he shows it to you), Tim thoroughly and clearly guided us through the offer, paperwork, and closing stages. These stages created the most anxiety/stress, but Tim made them pleasant and exciting; a positive experience we will always remember. We firmly believe that if you find yourself the right Real Estate agent, they will find you the right home. We are so lucky that Tim is our Real Estate agent and we can't recommend him enough to anyone that is looking to buy a home! Thanks again, Tim!

Mark and Elizabeth Weber

Vikki Morrison has been by exclusive real estate agent since 1995 and Tom has been working with Vikki, my wife and me for the past year.

Vikki initially helped me to sell a home in Long Beach in 1995 and then purchase a home in Huntington Beach that same year. Since that time, we have had multiple other real estate transactions that have all been successful. In addition, I have referred quite a number of colleagues and friends to Vikki and they have all been more than satisfied with her professionalism and work. In fact, I think that most of her clientele are past clients and people referred to her by her past clients. There are a number of qualities that separate Vikki Morrison (and now also her partner Tom) from other real estate agents. She is completely honest and trustworthy and when searching for a home to purchase, she will give her honest opinions on the positives and negatives about a home and not just try to make a sale for the commission. When selling a home, she will price the home fairly and goes out of her way to stage the home to make a successful sale. She actually has a warehouse of “staging furniture and house items” that she uses to stage some of her client’s homes for a successful sale. Many people charge tens of thousands of dollars for a proper staging and Vikki actually staged my latest successful home sale and didn’t charge me a penny. There were quite a number of homes at our price range (around $2 million) this summer and most of the other homes were taken off the market, are still languishing for sale or were sold at drastically reduced prices. Vikki (and now Tom as well) just somehow are able to find the buyers and make a successful sale and it’s not surprising that Vikki is one of the most successful residential real estate agents in Orange County history. In summary, Vikki and Tom are completely reliable, successful, trustworthy and a joy to work with and we recommend them with the highest possible enthusiasm and with no reservations what so ever.

Tom was very patient with our changing whims, desires and needs for a new house.

We changed our areas of interest several times, price range and timing and he was always there to help us. Ultimately he found us the house we now live in and love. Thanks Tom.

Craig Van Sickle & Wendy Van Sickle

After searching for a house for almost a year and losing a house by not going in with an agent was not only heartbreaking but nerve racking and stressful.

So after we lost the house that we thought was it we discussed hiring a Buyers Agent to be on our side. That’s when we met Bernadette Vaszily at an Open House. Once we spent over 30 minutes with her we knew she was the one to fight for our new home in this tough market of over bidders. She was always on the hustle finding us the most recent houses that fit our request and getting into them the same day. It is almost like she has an intuitive instinct and a clover in her pocket. When we came out of another Open House we told her it was close but just missed one request. Then she looked across the street and said, “That’s the house you need.” It was a fixer upper unlike the turn key we just walked out of. However, from the outside it checked all the boxes. She went and spoke to the owner on our behalf later that evening after we heard a rumor from another agent that the house may be listed in the near future. To make a long story short she backed us, guided us and helped us get our beautiful Forever Home that checked ALL of the boxes. We hired her in November and we received our Keys Jan 27. We did not compromise. She is amazing and we will be referring her to all family and friends. The Hefners

Alex is the best real estate agent out there.

He works very hard for you as a customer. I have tried other agents, but there is none better than Alex for helping you buy or sell a home.

Bob Dobucki

Eva handled both the sale of our home in Cypress & the purchase of our dream home in Huntington Beach.

She was very knowledgeable about the home values in both areas. She sold our home for more than expected and got us a great price on our new home. We were transferring our tax basis so we had very strict guidelines for selling & buying. Eva skillfully guided us through the tricky process. She kept us on track & met every deadline. The sale & purchase both went smoothly. We are thrilled with our new home! Eva is a very knowledgeable and high-energy agent that is always accessible and knows how to get the job done right!

Sherry & Juan Gonzalez

My father had worked with Gwen Miller in the past.

When it was time to sell his house, I spoke with a few agents. I chose Gwen because she is a very experienced real estate professional She went above and beyond my expectations of a real estate agent. She was always available when I needed her. Gwen went through the entire house when we decided to sell and pointed out things we could do to increase the purchase price. She gave good advice on pricing and negotiations. She would go by the house often during the week. She had an Open House virtually every weekend day until the house entered escrow. The escrow company she chose handled the transactions very well. I was impressed with her commitment and professionalism.

T & J Family Trust

We appreciate your kindness and all your awesome help to find the perfect place!

Hands down the best agent to walk the face of this earth.

Such a sweetheart but also not afraid to get in the trenches and battle in order to make her clients happy. Won’t use anyone else and won’t let friends or family use anyone else.

Michael/Jenni Holden

We've known Tim and Karen for many years as neighbors and friends before they moved out of the neighborhood a few years ago.

Last summer, we were interested in purchasing and renting a condo for my wife to eventually live in after my death (I'm 80 and 11 years older than my wife Chris). Our current home is just too big and expensive for Chris, to keep when I'm gone. As Tim and Karen knew us, they quickly showed us a nearby condo for sale that Chris immediately fell in love with. After we made the purchase, they also found a wonderful renter who needed to move in quickly. Tim and Karen are also taking care of whatever is needed to keep the condo in good shape, so it's always rentable, and ready for Chris when she needs it. Their knowledge of the area, and expertise, helped us to find what we needed quickly and to purchase it at a fair price. Del and Chris Brault

We first met Jeremiah Secrest about 4 years ago.

  He was hosting an open house and offered to show us some properties. We knew instantly that we liked his easy-going nature and professional demeanor.  After questioning us about our likes and dislikes, price range and time frame, he set up appointments for us to view different homes on the market.  It was impressive how quickly he zeroed in on our style preferences. Jeremiah did not waste our time showing us properties that were beyond our budget or contrary to our taste.  He kept in touch with us and always notified us when a prospective home came on the market. He has a strong command of modern technology, using his Blackberry to text us and sending daily email notifications from his personal website.  If we were away from our computers, we could call him and request that he look up a certain property that we had seen while out and about. Our experience with Jeremiah has been positive and pleasurable, culminating in finding the perfect home for our taste.  He has a natural ability to connect with people and made us feel assured that we were in the hands of a top professional. Because of his work ethic and personal integrity we highly recommend Jeremiah Secrest for any and all real estate transactions.

"Every time we had questions they were always available to talk and we truly felt like we had a friend in our corner.

We have recommended Debbie and Amie already and will continue to recommend them to anyone we come across looking to buy a house."- David & Carla Falcioni

Sylvia is not only a first class agent, but a first class person.

Her expertise in real estate, the process, and listening to the client is second to none. She makes what would be an otherwise daunting task a breeze. It’s always comforting to know that I have Sylvia in “my corner” looking out of my interest. She provides the initiative, support, and professionalism needed to get the job done and is truly one of a kind!

Matt Cortez helped me find my first home!

I met Matt at an open house as I was first beginning my search for my first home. He was never pushy, but always followed through and was always available for me at any hour of the day/weekend. He sent me homes via email that met my search criteria, and texted me when some homes were coming onto the market that he knew would sell fast but that I would be interested in. He set up multiple showings of homes that I was interested in, and got me in before anyone else was able to see the place. As a first time buyer, I knew nothing about buying a home, but Matt always explained everything, every step of the way, and I felt very comfortable and reassured working with him. Matt puts his heart and soul into supporting his clients, and he truley goes above and beyond to make sure his clients get what they want. I highly recommend using Matt as your trusted realtor!

Kin provided us with professional services through the process of selling and buying our home.

She knew the area very well. She was a great listener, an extremely hard worker, respectful, courteous and easy to speak with. She kept us informed and managed our expectations with what was going on. After the sale, she helped my family find our dream house in a great school district. Kin knew the area very well, was appropriately aggressive in establishing a sale price, helped in a number of ways with all aspects of the selling process, and helped to expedite the closing of the sale. We had multiple offers on the property within 1 day of house opening and 1 week of it being listed. Kin was very helpful in negotiating with our buyers' agent to arrive at an acceptable price and terms. She communicated in a clear and concise manner. When we ready to purchase my next home, we will use Mike’s services again. Thanks Kin!!!

Tri V

A big "thank you" to Dan and Greg Lloyd for guiding us through the sale of our home!

It was worry free and we were very well taken care of in all aspects of the process. We highly recommend Dan and Greg for your sale or purchase. They will continue to be our realtors for any future transactions.

We used Tim to sell our condo three years ago and when we went to sell our house there was no doubt we'd use him again.

Greg helped sell our family home and made what could have been a very stressful process easy. He scheduled showings back to back , so my elderly mother wasn't inconvenienced. He was always available for questions & helped explain all the various forms. Greg brought paperwork by the home & picked items up saving us the trouble. The house had multiple offers & sold above asking. If you're looking for a friendly, knowledgeable real estate professional, Greg's your guy!Less

We have been working with Beth for about 2 years looking for an investment property in Huntington Beach.

We live in the Seattle area and she has always been available to show us possible properties and discuss with us the current market conditions when we are visiting Huntington Beach. We consider her very knowledgeable and really appreciate her constant updates of market conditions and possible properties that meet our parameters. When we finally found a property we wanted to make an offer on she was very responsive and helpful with the transaction always looking out for our best interests. We found her integrity and knowledge invaluable in bringing our transaction to a successful close.

Peter & Cindy Swift

Eva was wonderful to work with!

She's professional, patient, organized, diligent and has a good sense of humor. It took a bit for us to get our house fixed up to sell, and Eva knew we needed some hand holding, as we no longer live nearby. She was always there for us, always quick to respond to our questions/worries/issues. It helped so much knowing she was always on top of things and in our corner. We appreciate Eva and all her hard work to get our home ready for sale. Once it was ready, there were offers coming in before she even had the open house. So pleased. We cannot say enough nice things about her! She's terrific! Thank you, Eva!

Douglas/Catherine Hill

My husband and I relocated to the Huntington Beach area this year and had the pleasure to work with Beth during our search for our new home.

  She spent time with us exploring our options in the rental market and ultimately helped us purchase our current home. Beth is always professional and detail oriented. She is available to answer any questions and facilitate our purchase.  In addition to her time commitment to our family during the purchase she was able to provide us with referrals to make our new house our home.  It was a pleasure to explore Huntington Beach with her.

Tom was very flexible and accommodating and worked hard to get us the best price with the best inclusions.

We are first time home buyers and he was very helpful explaining everything in detail and made it easy for us to understand and be a part of the process. We not only gained a great Realtor contact, but we gained a friend. Could not have done it without him. Thank you!

I met Carin as she was walking around my neighborhood.

We talked for awhile, I liked what she had to say and I found her ver friendly and knowledgable. She helped me decide on the price I should sell at, and it sold for that price, mimusic the fix up cost. I was very pleased with the sake and her performance. I'd recommend her to any of my friends who are thinking of selling or buying. Yours, George Pugh

Mary Ann was an incredibly proficient agent for us.

The marketing of our property was top-shelf, just as she had promised it would be. We had multiple offers with 2 weeks, and her negotiation skill/advice was pivotal to a quick sale agreement and close of escrow. The whole process was made so easy for us, and I will not hesitate to use her again. Thank you Mary Ann!

Frank Tomich

We first met Beth at an open house.

After chatting for just a few minutes about what we were looking for, we were confident that Beth was the right person to help us find our new home. As first time home buyers, we had a million questions but Beth was always right there to answer them, whether it was in person, by phone, or email. She helped us every step of the way with patience and professionalism, and we couldn't be happier in our new home. We would highly recommend Beth for your real estate needs!

E. Corbin & J. Hersh

We worked with Karen and Tim to purchase our first house.

They were both tremendously helpful. We made offers on 4 different properties and entered escrow on two of them before finally closing on our final (and best) choice. Tim did not bat an eye the numerous times we changed our minds. Not only did they both work with us to find the correct home and navigate the seemingly endless process, but educated us along the way. We had a lot of questions and wanted to gain a thorough understanding of the home-buying process, and they gladly answered all of our questions. We couldn't recommend them more to anyone looking for a nice, down to earth, and friendly couple to represent them in their real estate needs.

Tyler Boogar and Michael Richards

Eva, We just want to say thank you for all your efforts in marketing and selling our house.

We knew from the first day we met you that you were the person we trusted to do the job. Your professionalism, enthusiasm and knowledge of the housing market were outstanding. We would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking to sell or purchase their home!

It is my immense pleasure to recommend Silvia Milligan as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home or an investment property.

I met Silvia 7 years ago when I was shopping for an investment home. I was so impressed with Silvia's understanding of financing and the local market. Since then I have purchase 3 investment properties with her assistance. Silvia is an excellent listener. During my initial meeting she took diligent notes regarding my specific budgetary limitations. She is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly find me a variety of homes for sale. She did not waste my time with homes that were out of our price range or not in line with my needs

reycaceres

As a working Mom who had little time and a husband with a busy work schedule, Sylvia was our perfect match.

She was always on top of everything and went the extra mile in every area of the process. She throughly researched our property, helped us deal with a probate sale, and helped us find all the sources we needed to make the purchase possible. She even answered our calls in the evenings when our busy work day settled down. Thanks to Sylvia, we were able to find the perfect home at a great price within a HB neighborhood that is highly desirable with very limited inventory. Three words to describe Sylvia...trustworthy, detailed and knowledgeable. And...she was truly a pleasure to work with.

Christine Manlapeg

What more can I say?

Kin helped me and my wife find the perfect house. She is patient in working with us. She won't settle for anything less and made sure we are satisfied with every transactions. It is so good to know there are still honest to good people out there making people's dream come true.

Ms.

Sylvia Garrett is one of the most knowledgeable and accommodating real estate agents I have ever met. She has always gone beyond the call of duty in order to provide her services every time we needed them in renting our properties. I don't think that my comments above provide actually the degree of appreciation I have felt over the years about the quality of her services.

Betty Wood-Scott

Recently Debbie Docherty handled the sale of our home on Lowell Circle in the city of Westminster.

[She was] very personable and approached [her] work with a great deal of professionalism. Due to [her] efforts we were able to sell our home at a price higher than most in our neighborhood were commanding.  [Her] approach to promoting the house served to broaden the market base and cause the property to sell relatively quickly. As with any major transaction of this sort small matters arise and Debbie [was] quick to address them before they became issues Debbie's knowledge, experience and resources worked to make the process proceed smoothly, the experience was enjoyable and exciting. We have and will continue to recommend [her] to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home.

Linda and Keith Goodner

I got your info and wanted to congratulate you on your award!

Mary Lou Newton Truste

This was my first home purchase and Eva gave me much needed confidence, I had zero knowledge of the process but I had heard some not so good stories from people.

My budget was a challenge but the way my transaction and overall experience Eva provided to me I felt like I purchased a mansion and it is perfect in every way for my lifestyle and within my budget! Eva was always pleasant, friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating, professional, and never pushy. Thank you Eva!

Lynne Wood

Dear Mr.

Malesh, Two months ago we were served so well by one of your representatives, we felt we had to bring her to your attention. Her name is Carin. My wife and I had heard one horror story after another about being badly represented by realtors much of our adult life. Carin distiguished herself from the "pack" by being willing to do a little homework for us and make it convenient for us. While I am no stranger to transacting business on the net, Carin's willingness to get the information for us plus temper it with her insight caused all our anxieties to disappear. She went out of her way to get us help with a superb loan broker as well. Consistently throughout the process she was always willing to do the little extras. I do not believe we could have gotten better service from having a devoted relative take care of us. We now go out of our way to recommend her and place her business card with potential buyers. Privately, we hope to refer $1,000,000 in sales to Carin within the year. She made the trauma of buying a first home a delight. Mr. and Mrs. Bruce A., Fountain Valley  

I selected Carin to list my home after interviewing several agents.

Her extensive experience, professional demeanor, and market intuition were key attributes in my decision to work with her. She is organized, keeps in touch with you, and is quick to respond through the entire sales process. I received multiple offers in my first week on the market and sold above list price. I highly recommend her.

Sandy Anchondo

Richard & Janet Pierce

Carin made our house-hunting and ultimate home purchase a seamless experience.

She was available to us absolutely whenever we had a question and her follow-up was amazing. Although the ultimate professional, Carin ended up feeling more like a treasured friend than our real estate agent. We would highly recommend her in any capacity for somebody's real estate needs.

AJ was extremely knowledgeable and professional.

He made every step of the home buying process a smooth, clear and easy process. He is not only personable and enthusiastic, but also hardworking to find the perfect home that met what I was looking for. I would without a doubt use AJ as my agent again and refer him to anyone who is starting their home buying/listing process.

Jasmin Djo

Kin is a very professional real estate agent that is extremely savvy in her trade.

She goes above and beyond what any normal agent does for a home owner. She helped staged, clean and organize our mother's home of almost 60 years. After just one day on the market she brought in multiple offers which started a bidding war on our home. She was able to give us our full asking price and stayed in touch with us from start to finish. She was always available any time of the day and she truly gives the expression, "SERVICE WITH A SMILE" new meaning. We highly recommend her!!

Jack M

Thank you so very much for making the challenging and stressful job of purchasing a new home a more relaxed and pleasant experience.

Having just moved to California, I was depended upon your team's knowledge and expertise but I knew I was in good hands seeing as your team had been recommended to me by a colleague at work, with whom you had worked with the previous year during the purchase of her home. The market was very tough at the time and I had certain requirements and limitaions that The Sullivan Team was able to meet. Your flexibility of working around my work day was greatly appreciated as was your research, as we began to narrow down the choices. Your personality and demeanor made me feel very comfortable and a pleasure to work with, which was of great importance to me. You are a people person who is so very obviously in the right profession. Again, I'd like to thank your team for all their hard work- it was a pleasure working with you and I shall without a doubt highly recommend your team to any friends that are in need of  friendly yet very professional realtors. Wishing The Sullivan Team all the very best for the future. Sincerely, Renata Kmiecik

Sylvia Garrett is the most energetic and congenial real estate agent I have ever met.

She is knowledgeable, courteous and goes beyond the call of duty in terms of effort, when it comes to accommodate her clients needs. It was a great pleasure to interact with Sylvia throught the process of selling our property during which she informed us in every step on the way and kept us aware of all the necessary activities we had to take to complete the sale.

Constantine and Agathi Glezakos

We recently purchased our FIRST HOME!

!!! We are forever grateful to the Rose Team Chris and Debbie for driving this experience to it’s’ pinnacle. We began our search early in December and had very specific needs in both the structure of the home and most importantly the location. We were willing to wait until we found the right house in the right place, the place we have dreamed of living to be close to our family. We wanted to make sure we found not just a house, but a home where our family was close by and our children would share their lives together, looking out for each other, playing with each other, making lifelong memories. It was an emotionally charged and fervent list that was handed to the Rose Team on that special day we decided they would be our partners in this quest after they helped us sell a home during a very emotional and sad time for our family. Debbie made no hesitation in starting the search and within a few days had found a home that was beautiful, we thought it was amazing…but it didn’t quite feel like home. Chris and Debbie spent the next month doing everything they could to find us a place, knocked on doors, chatted with neighbors, networked within the Realtor world….until 1 day. There it was…the home of our dreams. We walked in looked at each other and knew…this was our house. That first immediate phone call was so adrenaline fueled to finally say…MAKE AN OFFER! Debbie and Chris jumped right on it contacted everyone necessary, and swoosh…there the offer went. Oh…one major fact here…it was a SHORT SALE. We were told this was unheard of right now in the area we were looking, and can take forever they said, a roller coaster for the buyers was repeated over and over. Well…Debbie and Chris said, “Buckle up, ‘cuz here we go!” This was not your ordinary sale, Chris and Debbie worked relentlessly to make sure every “I” was dotted , every “t” was crossed and then another road block…tick tick tick UP then AAAAAAAAAAAAAhhhh down we go…but we are still on the ride and there is an end in sight after months. They had to call everyone they could think of to come through and help us meet all the needs of this short sale…and every time we needed them, they were there. Every time there was an issue, they handled it and there were lots of crazy insane issues. Ups and downs, Debbie and Chris were on it! Then it happened…CLOSING DAY!!! From stalking the listing agent, to working with the homeowner, to calling in re-reinforcements, to listening to me vent and hugging me when it seemed like it would never be ours…They Did IT!! The day we were handed the keys felt like a giant weight of worry had been lifted and comfort, excitement, and pure joy took over. We are HOME, We are OVERJOYED, and so incredibly GRATEFUL .

Tim Branoff greatly assisted my brother and I sell our parents home in Huntington harbor after they both passed away.

He was instrumental in what upgrades we needed to do to get it sale ready. He worked open houses every weekend even on Sundays. He definitely knows the real estate market and  especially in Huntington Harbor.

Ronald Belk

It was wonderful working with Cari.

She was always available and willing to help with anything. She is very knowledgeable and caring. She loved my dog and the feeling was mutual. She made the whole house selling experience very easy.

"My wife and I would like to take the time to express our gratitude and appreciation for Debbie Docherty.

During the course of these transactions, Debbie was constantly fighting for our family and coming up with new solutions to the many problems that continuously plagued us. Debbie is a true professional, and her positive, "Can Do Attitude" reflected greatly upon her. We have recommended Debbie to our closest friends, co-workers, and family."- Frankie & Kelly Choyeski

We want to share with you the wonderful experience we had selling our home with The Sullivan Team as our agents.

We lived in our home in Huntington Beach for 32 years, so the process of selling was new to us, and a bit overwhelming. The Sullivan Team was extremely helpful in walking us through the process, before we had even signed the sales contract. Their confidence, knowledge and "friendliness" made us feel as though they were members of our family. We felt they were extremely honest and trustworthy, and that in these times is rare. Thank you, Bob & Rosalind Olsen

Bob & Rosalind Olsen

Beth McCloskey and her team are top-notch.

They go above and beyond in all aspects of courtesy, professionalism and service. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Extremely satisfied!

Jeffrey J. Olmstead Lucie F. Da Rocha

Donna Fowler has exceptional professional and people skills.

She is caring and respects all family members involved in the sale process. She is knowledgeable and consistent. Even after the sale of the house she is available for questions and concerns. Donna understands the emotional impact of selling a home and will support you through it. Every point of the sale was smooth, despite the challenges involved in this sale.

Simone LaPay, Naples Island, Long Beach

Eva guided us through a very difficult purchase of our new home.

She was always available. She sold our old house. Held numerous open houses and advertising in many publications. She was very professional through all our transactions. I would recommend her services if given a chance.

Stuart/Susan Liggan trustee

I never had a chance to thank you for all the hard work you did for my family.

It was a pleasure to worl with such a professional individual. I am sure there will come a time when we look to buy another vacation house, probably on a lake somewhere. I can guarantee, you will be the first call when that day comes. I wish you all the best in the future and once again thank you from me and my family. Jeff

My experience with Debbie and Amie was none less than extraordinary.

.. They are the sole reason for the sale of my condo... I am grateful for their service, dedication, and professionalism.

Tamette Rappa

Tom, you worked very hard in presenting my Historic home to perspective buyers.

Your photos and marketing really showed the classic beauty of my 80 year old Southern California Spanish Villa. Your Open Houses were enthusiastic and it was no wonder when my home sold over full price with Multiple offers! Thank you for all your professional work in obtaining the best price possible.....D. Lee Keller

I met Carin about three years ago at an open house, I remembered her from that meeting.

When we decided to sell our house we gave her a call. We put our house on the market during the Thanksgiving Holiday and compete the sale and purchase by Christmas. Carin was on top of everything even the purchase which she didn't have to do but made sure everyting was going smoothly. Everything went on schedule thanks to Carin, I would use her again without hesitation. Thank you Carin for all your help.

Julie Gasparo

Eva was extremely professional, knowledgeable, creative, energetic and just a hard worker.

She was my pit bull working very hard to sell my home investing not only personal time but her own money to professionally market my home resulting in a quick sale way over asking price and a smooth escrow that rolled out just as she said it would. I would recommend Eva without hesitation and as a matter of fact, anyone who doesn’t choose her as their agent is foolish in my opinion.

Mark Menning

Alex is a very energetic and detailed individual.

Eduardo Saavedra

If you want the Best Real Estate Team when buying or selling a home call Tim & Karen Branoff.

They are extremely knowledgeable in the market area and know whats best for their clients. I have known the Branoffs for over 17 years and have been very fortunate to find the Best agents in all of Orange County. I have sold and purchased five homes and they are the Only Real Estate agent I trust to take care of all our Real Estate needs. Thank you always for such Exceptional Customer Service that you provide us.

Betty Wood-Scott

I've known Eva first as a neighbor then as the GO TO Agent in the area.

She is incredible. Her knowledge of the market in my area, professionalism, the fact she sells so many houses in my area, great personality and infectious enthusiasm are a few reasons I chose Eva Riddle. I have already recommended her to friends and family. Thank you Eva!!!

Mary Jo Gamblin

Carin, was truly a pleasure to work with.

She represented our family with the upmost respect and professionalism. She is very detail oriented and is very familiar with the beach communities. We could have not found a better agent in helping us find our new home. Thanks Carin!

Greg did a great job for us in finding our new home.

After finding our new home, Greg quickly had our current home on the market with multiple offers within a couple of days! Transactions went smooth and Greg kept us informed of status along the way. He handled our frequent questions quickly and professionally. We would definitely recommend Greg!

Steve & Noelle Peters

We enjoyed the experience we had with both Tim and Karen Branoff.

They work as a husband and wife team, are very congenial and extremely knowledgeable about real estate, trends, and the area in general. Both of them go out of their way to help. My mother had died and we needed lots of advice about selling her home and her things, especially since we were from out of state. They made an especially difficult and sad time for us so much easier. All transactions were fast and we felt they went out of their way doing everything possible to assist us. They make you feel like old friends, so personable. Add to that their expertise and you have quite a winning team.

Al and Carol Jones

I love these guys.

They listen when you tell them what you’re looking for and don’t waste your time showing you anything else. They are so much fun to be around. They treated us like friends and we always enjoyed being with them. Once we found the house we had to have, they negotiated in our favore. I love these guys and can’t imagine ever using anyone else.

Tom and Ile Butler

My wife and I are in our 60's and physically compromised.

Eva was there for us at every phase of this experience ,from garage sales, getting rid of furniture and recommending other professionals to help with the process. Eva sold our house for a great price to solid buyers. My wife and I consider Eva a good friend and highly recommend her.

William/Lisa Tymchak

Professional, knowledgable and trustworthy.

Alex is a trustworthy person. I believed he had mine and my families best interest at heart. He answered all my questions and really put me at ease with some of the doubts I was having about purchasing a home. His knowledge of the market (value, neighborhoods, etc.) was excellent. I am definitely recommending him to everyone I know.

Jayne Faalafua

I would like to recommend Debbie Docherty as a great real estate agent.

I have worked with her and have found her to be very professional and friendly. One of the best agents that I have ever met…

Ted Nguyen

We had a great experience working with Carin.

She is a dedicated professional, honest, patient and personable and she truly knows her business. She followed through and kept us informed of what was happening each step of the way. She was always available to answer our questions and from our first meeting we felt we could trust her to have our best interest at heart. Josh K. and Denise F., Desert Hot Springs  

Tom is a rare commodity in the Real Estate industry.

He has one of the highest standards of excellence with the right moral compass. Selling or buying a home is based on pure emotion and he jumps right into the journey to keep all the moving parts on track. Open comminication from beginning to end without any surprises. He’s a seasoned agent with over twenty years of experience and a pleasure to be around. I would highly recommend him!!!

Tom & Lyne M Decuir

Sylvia was excellent, She is very professional, responsive, and makes the experience of buing a house fun,

Nikos Melitas and Patricia Rogan

Although I have only sold one home I can tell you that were I to have the need again of a top notch agent for any reason, Jeremiah would be my only choice.

He handled all the details even getting the estimate of the final amount returned to me very close to what I actually received. There were a number of unforeseen issues that caused delays and changes (not due at all to Jeremiah) and he was able to work quickly to get everything resolved to my complete satisfaction. He is an excellent businessman with an upbeat attitude that made the experience enjoyable and pleasant. He did a number of things to help close the deal that in my estimation were above and beyond the call of duty. He worked tirelessly to do whatever was needed to get a superb result in the sale of my house. You will be very pleased to work with this great man!

Michael G. Hayes

After a difficult remodel process where the original contractor left many “finish” items incomplete, Paul took charge and completed the construction job.

Thankfully the finished house looked great and we achieved the highest price for the area due to his negotiating skills and perseverance. David Bourne

Alex Duarte was absolutely fantastic to work with!

He is very flexible, knowledgeable, and efficient. He helped us sell our condo with in a month and is currently working hard to find us our perfect home. We already recommended him to family friend and will continue to do so. We are glad we made  the decision in selecting him as our realtor!

Gladyz Romero

Tim is the most personable, helpful person I have come across.

He goes out of his way to find out exactly what you're looking for and making sure he finds the perfect fit for you. I consider him a great friend and would highly recommend his services!!

Vicki Resch

Great agent to work with

Joseph Morris

Neither my husband nor I have ever encountered a real estate agent finer than Carin Lundahl, with First Team Real Estate in Huntington Beach, CA.

It was Ms. Lundahl's constancy (and catchy mailers) in updating us, over many years, that prompted us to contact her when we decided to list our condominium in Long Beach. With her winsome personality, vast experience, dedication and knowledge, expertise in pricing and marketing properties and her penchant for thoroughness, engaging the services of Ms. Carin Lundahl for any real estate need in the entire region is a guarantee to success. When we fell under time and financial pressure to release the equity in our condo, Carin, literally, did back flips for us by utilizing every marketing tool and working late and on weekends to get our unit sold. She remained delightful throughout the process, guided and guarded us every step of the way and simplified everything for her computer challenged clients. She treated our tenant with kid gloves and was able to persuade him to release us from the significant obstacle of a remaining six months on a lease and, thereby, obtain for us a quick sale. Carin demonstrated more finesse, when a surprise plumbing problem surfaced the afternoon before escrow was to close. She flew into action, summoning a repairman, stayed well into the evening to be certain the work was completed and, then, based on her impeccable reputation for integrity, obtained consent from the buyer's broker to go ahead and close our escrow on schedule, the very next morning, on a Friday. Carin rescued us by skillfully negotiating a full price, all cash offer and contract that closed within two weeks! Carin Lundahl is, hands down, elegance personified...the best of the best. We cannot, highly enough, recommend her or, adequately enough, thank her for the confidence she instilled in us, the joy and peace of mind we gained while working with her and the outstanding service she rendered for us. Sincerely, Hershel and Andrea HarrodMore

Jeremiah was very professional and made the experience of buying a home fantastic.

My wife and I will refer him to friends for sure. Great personal service, excellent communication. Expert in all phases of his job!! Joe DeMarco

After the dissappointment from an escrow cancellation, Dan sold it again in 1 day with a successful close.

I will use him again and recommend him for sure.

Kevin did a great job showing me all of my options in Orange County that were in my price range.

I was very indecisive and asked a million questions, but he was very patient with me which was really appreciated. Love my new home! Thank you, Kevin!

Karisa P

We worked with Karen and Tim to purchase our first house.

They were both tremendously helpful. We made offers on 4 different properties and entered escrow on two of them before finally closing on our final (and best) choice. Tim did not bat an eye the numerous times we changed our minds. Not only did they both work with us to find the correct home and navigate the seemingly endless process, but educated us along the way. We had a lot of questions and wanted to gain a thorough understanding of the home-buying process, and they gladly answered all of our questions. We couldn't recommend them more to anyone looking for a nice, down to earth, and friendly couple to represent them in their real estate needs.

Tyler Boogar and Michael Richards

Jeremiah is a PRO!

An amazing human being, Realtor and friend. My wife and I are sitting on our couch...our first night as first time home owners and we are just in awe of how lucky we were to have met Jeremiah. He guided us every step of the way and was extremely patient with us (even when we were total face palms). We had seen homes with other Realtors before we met Jeremiah, but they don't hold a candle to the sheer work ethic, experience and knowledge we witnessed in JS. Most importantly, Jeremiah listens. My wife and I had a wish list and a budget...other Realtors said we were dreaming...Jeremiah made it happen. Not only did he orchestrate every last detail of our home buying journey, he gave us access to his entourage of industry experts, contractors, suppliers and friends to make our new home pretty damn perfect. Our lives have been made richer with Jeremiah.

Alex Brandstetter

When we decided to sell our home, we wanted a realtor who knew our neighborhood very well, who had an excellent track record, and who was someone we could get along with.

Eva Riddle fit the bill in each case. She lives in our neighborhood, knows it like the back of her hand, and probably sells more homes there than any other realtor. We saw her in action at several open houses and were immediately impressed with her energy and enthusiasm. We interviewed other realtors, but after hearing Eva's thoughts on pricing and marketing, we knew that she was the one who could see us through this whole process with the best outcome. In a nutshell, she did not let us down in any way! She staged our home beautifully, held successful open houses and managed private showings, all the while letting us know exactly what was going on. After just two weeks we got an offer at our full asking price with an escrow period we had requested. It is easy to praise someone when things are going well, but it is when difficulties arise that a person's professional and personal skills become most apparent. When issues with our buyer's loan status came into play toward the end of our escrow period, Eva handled things for us, all the while keeping our lines of communication open so that we were not ever left guessing what was going on. The ending to our story is a good one (house sold at full asking price and closed just two days later than it was supposed to), and we can honestly say that Eva Riddle was the reason for this successful outcome. We have sold several homes throughout our lives and Eva is, by far, the best realtor we have ever dealt with. Not only are her professional skills superb, but she is a kind, thoughtful, and empathetic person, someone we consider to be a friend. Eva truly loves what she does and it shows in every way. She deserves our highest recommendation!

Jay/Marcia Oppenheim

This fabulous duo sold my home in 2 weeks for full price!

They go over and beyond! You’re in good hands with Debbie and Amie. Thank you ladies for making my experience easy. 5 stars!

devona kauffmann

We used Kin to find our home and she always came prepared and on time.

She would go out of her way to find us many different options as well as places that satisfied our needs. We would choose some homes but she would always have 10 or more that she researched on her own to show us. These homes  always were a close criteria to what we wanted. She really does her homework and has a fascinating memory and sense of humor. We will definitely use her again, however, after finding us the perfect home, we may never move!!

Kris

Tom did an excellent job highlighting the property and was knowledgeable about the property and its various features.

He was able to answer the various questions I had and provided excellent follow-up.

Carin helped us buy our first house in 2003 and helped us sell that same home this year.

For first-time buyers, she was a wealth of knowledge, always available for questions, quick to respond. Don't let her warm smile and quick laugh fool you - she is savvy, knowledgeable and a great negotiator. I wouldn't have contacted any other Realtor when it was time to sell!

SM Tortoriello

There is no finer Realtor in the business.

Sylvia is the total professional in every respect. Her honesty, tenacity and positive work ethic won me over. I will continue to use and recommend Sylvia Garrett for all my real estate needs. Thank you Sylvia. Norm O

Carin helped us buy our first home.

As first homebuyers, my husband and I were overwhelmed with the whole process. Carin helped ease the stress and guided us through the whole thing. She kept in regular contact with us and was always readily available to answer questions via text, email or voice call. She is very knowledge, organized, professional and responsive. I would highly recommend Carin to anyone looking to buy/sell a house.

Jaytee12345

Sylvia was available to my needs anytime I needed to contact her and she continues to check on me to see if I need anything always willing to go the extra mile I have recommended her in the past and will continue to do so if anyone needs a realtor Thank You Sylvia for all your help.

Nick Champion

Greg was stellar.

Not only was he professional, communicative and responsive, supportive, and informative, but he was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process of selling my home. He was always very available to answer questions (and I sometimes had quite a few), listen  when I vented my frustrations, and open and honest. I highly recommend Greg as a realtor.

Stacie C.

I have worked with Eva on the sale and purchase of 2 homes.

She took care of absolutely everything. All four sales went smoothly due to Eva's diligence. I would never use any other agent!

Deborah

He is very persistent in his canvasing his area.

He is always a happy guy., which makes for a pleasant experience. His follow through on every deal makes for a positive experience.

Burt Hilborn

I’m a CPA, and I deal with a lot of professionals.

Paul is the real deal. His communication skills are the best in the business, and his friendly personality helps him negotiate very well. He is always very easy to work with and extremely diplomatic. He knows how to negotiate the best deal without being too pushy. You can trust Paul, knowing that he is in your corner working hard for you. He enjoys helping people and will go out of his way to help a deal close. I’ve used Paul on two occasions. Once to purchase a property, and a second time to sell that same property several years later. Both transactions went extremely smoothly, with very positive results. I just can’t say enough to describe how happy I am with his services.

David and Lisa Buck

Carin has been helping us with our real estate needs for years, with markets up and down.

Her expertise is extensive and obvious knowledge makes you comfortable to trust her with your transaction. Over the time of working with her, not only is she an very dedicated and attentive business woman, she is a caring and understaning person to work with. Her communicate skills are excellent, we have never had to wonder where our process is at. She both helped us purchase a home, years later helped us seamlessly, painlessly sell our home. I would not hesitate 100% to endorse her for her work ethic, communcation, perseverance in a often volatile market, prominance in the community, and ability to work with other business professionals to get the job done. If you need to buy or sell, give her a try, you will not regret it

Tabbie Norton

Kin Ly is an excellent, experienced realtor.

We are very satisfied with the way she expertly handled the sale of our house. She was professional , skilled and courteous, and was patient with our questions and concerns. She was dependable in her ongoing updates and communication, and she was aggressive on our behalf throughout the various steps of our sale. She even gave us some handy categorized folders for an organized storage of all our paperwork. Also, her multilingual ability was very beneficial and important in the sale of our Garden Grove home. Kin has an exceptional blend of positive traits. We are fortunate and thankful that God led us to her, and highly recommend her superb services! Keep up the good work, Kin!

Tim and Teri M

Once again Carin as proven to remain a knowledgable and trustworthy realtor who always has her clients' interests at heart.

Ibrahim Ghanem

It is with great pleasure that I write this recommendation for Sylvia!

Sylvia is a true professional and after working with her she has reduced my anxiety and alleviated days of stress from buying or selling property. Her expert knowledge, calm and patient demeanor, and digestable information have made it easy for me to know where to go and who to ask when it comes to anything regarding real estate. She took the time to honestly and succinctly tell me what I had to do and what was optional to do in preparation for selling my home. Finally, Sylvia is not about rushing you to make a decision, but she is all about your comfort and pace as you make important decisions about your property. I highly recommend Sylvia for all your real estate needs.                  Mercedes S

I recommend working with Alex, he listens to what you want and provides perspective that you had not though about.

Buying a home is a life altering commitment, you want to be sure to have someone you can trust help you make the right decision. Alex Duarte and his team made it possible for us to understand the process and made themselves available as much as possible to answer our questions. They also handled our concerns with professionalism and care. We were able to go through our list of priorities quickly and choose a home that fit our needs, his team promised us a quick closing and within two weeks we had our keys to our new home once our offer had been accepted. We are extremely grateful to Alex Duarte and his team for making this possible.

Rafael & Teresa Novales

Greg was so awesome to work with, from the very beginning of the house hunting process all the way through the day we got our keys.

He was available any time we had questions or needed clarification on something and explained the whole process to us so we understood it, even as being first time home buyers. We felt like buying a home was actually easy and we completely credit Greg and the First Team Real Estate family for that!

Whitney & Justin Dressler

Beth McCloskey was by far the best real estate agent we have ever encountered.

She was patient, dedicated, and determined to find us our forever home. She answered every single question we had and handled everything we wanted. We are so happy with our first and forever home!!!!

Chuck and his team were incredibly helpful in our process of buying a home.

We lived out of state while the process was taking place and they made it easy and painless. And actually really fun. We recommend them wholeheartedly!!

"Buying a home is easy as pie when you get to work with Debbie and Amie!

 On New Year's Eve my husband and I were talking with a friend about our struggles to find a home when he suggested to have another set of eyes help us look for a home for us. Well, this set of eyes were Debbie and Amie and we are SOOOO glad we asked them for help. We had been working with another Realtor over the past year and were constantly outbid from homes we wanted and directed to areas we did not want to live in. However, as soon as we met Debbie we knew that things would be different. She is incredibly personable, and really listened to what we were looking for. She did her homework for us and was incredibly sweet in taking the time to answer all our questions. We were the first ones to see the house that we purchased, and after speaking to the sellers, this is what got us the house. We are so thankful for Debbie and Amie, we know that we would not be in our new home without them. We love our house and neighbor and feel so blessed that we found the perfect home."-Lenny & Debbee

We were first time buyers with every first time buyers' anxiety.

Carin was amazingly patient and explained the whole painstaking process thoroughly. She is integrous and did not pressure us into purchasing a home outside of our means. Nor did she try to show us any homes outside of our selected neighborhoods. She had our best interests at heart. We looked at many, many houses, but Carin never faltered. She was knowledgeable and educated us on what could be a problem, or what could be easily fixed. Our dream home ended up being a shortsale, ugh! However, Carin was our true partner every step of the way (a long arduous 6-months). She kep in touch with us constantly since she perfectly understood how nerve-wrecking the wait can be. Carin is a consummate professional and so personable. She was great with our kids and they absolutely adore her. We felt she truly valued us as clients because she listened and was so focused on our home buying needs. She was not distracted by her other clients when with us which made us feel special. Carin is, bottom line, a super caring and kind individual who is also a great real estate professional. We are happy home owners! Thanks, Carin!!

Tom makes you feel like you are the most important person in the room each time you talk with him.

Brooke DiDomenico

Being first time home buyers, my wife and I had been researching the Orange County market for years, thinking we could find the right place to call home on our own.

It wasn't until repeated misses that we realized we needed the leadership of a professional. Enter Tim Branoff. From the first time we met Tim, we knew he was the right man to trust. His kind, energetic personality is surpassed only by his real estate knowledge. Tim actually took the time to get to know us as people and that made a world of difference when it came to him finding us the right home. Every option he showed us was a serious contender, which left us feeling like we were (finally) in the driver seat in the home buying process. After we found THE home (you'll know it when he shows it to you), Tim thoroughly and clearly guided us through the offer, paperwork, and closing stages. These stages created the most anxiety/stress, but Tim made them pleasant and exciting; a positive experience we will always remember. We firmly believe that if you find yourself the right Real Estate agent, they will find you the right home. We are so lucky that Tim is our Real Estate agent and we can't recommend him enough to anyone that is looking to buy a home! Thanks again, Tim!

Mark and Elizabeth Weber

We would like to take this opportunity to express how grateful we are for the excellent service we received from The Sullivan Team on the recent sale of our property.

The market may have caused a couple of speed bumps along the way, but in the end, we couldn't have been more satisfied or happy with the outcome. They gave 100% of themselves at all times and they handled the sale of our property with professionalism from beginning to end. They not only represented us on the sale of our home, but we are also proud to consider them as  friend as well. Thank you for your dedication in helping to make our dreams come true. In the future we will not hesitate to recommend your team's services to our friends and family. Once again, thank you for your support, you are truly appreciated. Sincerely, Henry and Robin Cabrera

Henry and Robin Cabrera

Tim sold me my home in Huntington Beach, CA 20 years ago.

Since then he has always stayed in touch. Tim is one of the hardest working guys I know. He sold that HB home for us 2.5 years ago. He was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and made the whole experience enjoyable. Honestly, as one knows selling a home is stressful but Tim made it a piece of cake!

Paula LaRosa

The Rose Team, Debbie and Chris, sold a property for us in Huntington Beach.

From the beginning of contact to the day the house closed Chris and Debbie exceeded all of our expectations. They not only searched tirelessly for the right buyer, they helped us get the house ready for sale, assisted us  with any repairs and upgrades we wanted to do before sale, and worked with all parties involved in the sale to make it go smoothly. They truly cared for us and our needs through the whole process.

Greg and Anna Lee Schlueter

I have know Tim and Karen for over 20 years and have always thought of them as great people.

12 years ago I bought a house in HB where I have always wanted to live and I looked them up. With their help I found my match and had a great buying experience. Since then I have gotten to know them much  better and we have become much better friends and I see how much they do and care for everybody in and out of the work environment. They work with a passion for all of their clients and don't stop until the work is done. Tim lights up the room when he comes in and your always glad to see him. They are the kind of people you wish you lived next door to. Mark

Sylvia Garcia

I would recommend and request Debbie and Amie to represent me in any real estate transaction whether it be to purchase or sell.

They are extremely professional and experienced and know their business. Simply, they are first rate real estate representatives and came highly recommended to us by a neighbor who was totally satisfied by their performance.

Ronnie Zacker

As first time buyers, we were very unsure of the process and our ability to purchase.

Dan was awesome and we are so glad we made the move to HB and purchase our first home. I would recommend him anytime to anyone.

From start to finish, I have nothing but positive things to say about Tom DeCuir and his First Team Staff !

It was the best Real Estate experience we have ever had, my daughter Danyda and I now think of you as a friend of the family. Please visit us anytime you are in Colorado! ...C.Feldman 

Right away Josh made me feel welcome and at ease when he showed my husband and I our new home that we purchased!

He was very easing going and dressed professional. He was not “salesy” at all! Josh gave us space to look around the home and answered any questions we had. I would definitely recommend Josh if you are looking to buy a home because he does make you feel very comfortable and has that “no pressure” type of vibe which I liked!

Thanks to the best realtor I have ever met who is a true kind human being as well.

Eva helped us every step of the way and she answered any questions we may have had.

She is extremely knowledgeable and thanks to her expertise we were able to sell our home and buy our new home seamlessly.

Fransico J/ Angelica Cortez

Thank you so much for all that you are doing.

  I shudder to think what this process would be like if we didn't have you on our team.Our best, Megan C.

Thank you for helping me fulfill my dream of owning my own home.

I am so glad I listened to you and held on. Take care,        Jennifer S

Patient, knowledgable, positive, trustworthy, and diligent.

 Jeremiah treated us like family through our whole purchase process. Jeremiah helped us buy our first home (condo).  He taught us everything we needed to know about the process and walked us through all the paperwork until we were comfortable.The market was nuts when we were looking. There were 43 offers on one of the properties we looked at. Jeremiah was patient and encouraging. He didn't give up and he helped navigate the chaos. We entered a bid on a HUD home and it was rejected... that was, only for a few weeks. On Friday evening, and in the middle of a First Team Real Estate business event, Jeremiah received a notification that our bid was accepted. He forwarded the good news to us and called us right after his event. Unfortunately there was a deadline to accept the terms and provide the necessary HUD paperwork. We had 2 days to respond. As if that wasn't a challenge enough, Jeremiah had a vacation planned with his wife for his birthday that weekend. He spent the whole weekend away and had to put a lot of time and effort into both reviewing the HUD purchase terms as well as coordinating paperwork, documentation, and signatures that had to be turned in by Monday morning.The rest is history and we love our new home.

When we decided to sell our home, we wanted a realtor who knew our neighborhood very well, who had an excellent track record, and who was someone we could get along with.

Eva Riddle fit the bill in each case. She lives in our neighborhood, knows it like the back of her hand, and probably sells more homes there than any other realtor. We saw her in action at several open houses and were immediately impressed with her energy and enthusiasm. We interviewed other realtors, but after hearing Eva's thoughts on pricing and marketing, we knew that she was the one who could see us through this whole process with the best outcome. In a nutshell, she did not let us down in any way! She staged our home beautifully, held successful open houses and managed private showings, all the while letting us know exactly what was going on. After just two weeks we got an offer at our full asking price with an escrow period we had requested. It is easy to praise someone when things are going well, but it is when difficulties arise that a person's professional and personal skills become most apparent. When issues with our buyer's loan status came into play toward the end of our escrow period, Eva handled things for us, all the while keeping our lines of communication open so that we were not ever left guessing what was going on. The ending to our story is a good one (house sold at full asking price and closed just two days later than it was supposed to), and we can honestly say that Eva Riddle was the reason for this successful outcome. We have sold several homes throughout our lives and Eva is, by far, the best realtor we have ever dealt with. Not only are her professional skills superb, but she is a kind, thoughtful, and empathetic person, someone we consider to be a friend. Eva truly loves what she does and it shows in every way. She deserves our highest recommendation!

Donna was knowledgeable in the property I was buying and selling.

Her advice and confidence assisted me in making the decision to go ahead. She made sure things went exactly as predicted. Overall an excellent job, totally satisfied!

John Reid, Gables, Huntington Beach

I have purchased and sold multiple houses over the years and the words I would use to describe Tim's characteristics are professional, honest, caring, thoughtful, trust worthy, hard working and effective!

Joseph & Gale Abiad

Amie and Debbie have a great partnership and I could not of been happier with there professionalism and attention to detail.

My Escrow situation was very unique and they coached me threw the entire process. If you are looking for a confident, knowledgeable, personable team they are your team.

Valerie Rufener

Best agent on the planet.

She will work FOR you and make sure you are protected in your transactions. Sylvia has sold one property for us and helped us buy an apartment building. The sale was a difficult one. The property was nearly 100 years old and needed work. Despite the difficult listing, and the recession in the real estate market, Sylvia did not give up and was able to sell this property. You can guarantee that no one will work harder than she does. I wish there were more than 5 stars!

Lance and Laura Pinkham

Ally was an amazing realtor and partner for us.

Her knowledge on the local areas, was very helpful. We really appreciate how responsive she was throughout the entire process and so pleasant to work with.

Jose Ferreira Nicole Ferreira

Eva was extremely knowledgeable and guided us every step of the way.

She went above and beyond to help us in any way possible. I will definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell!

Franscico/Angelica Cortez

Greg and I have worked together in multiple real estate transactions.

While most agents specialize in property they personally like, Greg focuses on the client’s interests. Being involved in real estate most of his life allows him to be very knowledgeable in the field and understanding of the  process while buying and selling a home. Relationships come first while working with Greg which makes for a fun & simple real estate transaction all around. He goes out of his way to make sure his clients are happy with every service involved in a transaction. The level of service is above and beyond any agent you will work with in the field. Keep him at the top of your list of realtors as a single transaction with Greg Lloyd will make him your realtor for life!

Dylan Tortarolo

Thank you for working extremely hard for us in our superfast escrows.

We greatly appreciate your diligence and persistance in keeping all parties involved in our 2 escrows "on top of their game". Thanks so much for everything!!! We are very happy in our new home! Tad and Rebekah, Huntington Beach

Greg and Dan set a record-high sale for our area and blew away our expectations throughout the whole selling process.

They hosted a twilight open house to showcase the new listing and increased foot traffic which eventually helped to sell the house. Any time there were showings, they provided instant feedback to us and were able to handle any hiccups that came our way. We wouldn't hire anyone else!!! They will go above and beyond any other agent(s) out there!

Paul and Ameerah

Tom did a fantastic job helping us purchase our home in Huntington Beach.

It was our first time buying a home and Tom really made us feel at ease throughout the process. He was super helpful and patient and had great recommendations and insights throughout. Tom was professional, knowledgeable and responsive, we would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home. Thanks Tom!

Revay Wilson

We were extremely impressed with Ms.

Luongo's professionalism. She displayed expertise throughout the entire process. Having dealt with a number of agents and brokers over the years, we can honestly say that dealing with Cari was the best experience we've had. We always felt Cari was working for our best interests, both in negotiating and when answering our (numerous) questions. Her attention to detail was always apparent, and Cari was present for inspections and the appraisal, as well as for the photo session for the MLS. We would definitely use Ms. Luongo in the future. A-PLUS!

Al and Chris B.

Carin is a PROFESSIONAL.

Smart, consistent, determined, honest. She has helped me purchase 2 properties over the course of 15 years and both were executed flawlessly.

Marieanne Burley

Amazing, amazing, amazing!

Silvia is a constant professional that always see's that the job is done and done well! She is always trying to find ways to touch other peoples lives in a positive way; weather it is business, real-estate, or guidance...Silvia is the person to get it done!

Brandon R. Washington

Chuck specializes in Surfside residences.

He's been doing it for years and knows everybody. He's a tremendously hard worker; his marketing was aggressive and spared no expense. He likes using open houses, which surprised me, but appears to be very effective in this market segment. He especially  shined in the execution involved in closing and finishing the sale. I'd use him again in a heartbeat.

Jeff East

We have bought and Sold with Sylvia, both times she was very helpful and detailed.

She made the buying and selling as seamless as possible. Thank you Sylvia!!

Cortney Scarfuto and Adam Perez

Jeremiah is an amazing real estate agent.

 He helps you find the perfect home. If you aren't sure what you're looking for Jeremiah will go the extra mile to help you figure it out.  He is a kind, honest and  hard working individual who always delivers high quality service.  I will always use  Jeremiah's expertise for any real estate transactions.  He's the best!

Paula M.

MaryAnn was instrumental in our selling our home for above asking price, and in simultaneously securing the most amazing home for us to retire in, all within a few weeks.

I'm so thankful every day for having found her that led us to end up at such an unbelievably amazing home. We are both still a little dazed as if in a dream, absorbing all that's happened. Truly had we not had her help, all of this would never have been possible. Words cannot say thank you enough. You have far surpassed all of our expectations in closing the two biggest transactions of our lives. If you and Peter ever want to get away to lovely Ojai Valley, mi casa es su casa!

Grace and Robert

The Branoff’s live in Huntington Beach and they have first hand knowledge of this area.

They are super helpful and very accommodating in making sure the tedious process of looking for a home a more pleasant experience. I recommend them to everyone.

Dan Koon

Eva has always been amazing.

We went through 3 transactions together and every single one was beyond our expectations. I will not use anyone else ever again.

Mark/Jenni Holden

"With First Team's skillful negotiation, the offer I was presented and subsequently accepted worked out to be a little more than what I had been asking for, and both parties were completely satified with the deal.

Bernadette was amazing and made the process so easy for us.

I will refer her to everyone!

Brennan J Kelley and Angela C Vaszily

I am writing this letter to share with you the absolute pleasure that my wife and I had in working with The Sullivan Team.

The experience started on the day that my wife and I went to an open house they were conducting. they introduced themselves and politely inquired if we already had a real estate broker. When we said, "Yes," they smiled and handed us their business card. they never pressured us into switching to their services! Indeed, a few week later, the time came when we required their services. Being first-time buyers, we told them what we were exactly looking for; we had saved only a modest amount of money for a down payment. They went to work right away. They found us a mortgage broker who was willing to work with us. They got us our prequalification as well as our loan preapproval in just a matter of days! They then showed us the different properties available in the market based on the specifications we told them earlier. They displayed true patience when we said that we did not like any of the ones that he showed us. They kept looking, and looking, and looking until we finally found the house that e felt as the one that matched our needs. Unfortunately, it was over the limit of the amount that we were pre-approved for! The Sullivan Team immediately negotiated with both the agent of the property as well as the mortgage broker who had pre-approved our loan appplication. They were able to find a way for us to be able to buy the house that my wife and I fell in love with and still be able to keep the down payment and mortagae payments affordable. Escrow was another step that The Sullivan Team went the extra mile for us. They convinced the seller to pay the expense of fixing certain things and even leave behind items at no extra cost such as window treatments, the tool shed, the satellite dish, etc. They always made themselves available to us and scheduled their calls and meetings with us at our convenience, not theirs! When asked, they gave us excellent referrals such as for a home inspector, a locksmith, a plumber as well as an insurance agent to handle our homeowner's insurance needs. They were warm and engaging personalities and had a good sense of humor. They always had a smile ready even at the end of a long day. We felt they were always looking out for us and we just couldn't help but feel at ease with them. To be sure, my wife and I reserve no doubt in recommending them to relatives and friends who may need the services of consummate professionals like The Sullivan Team. Sincerely,  Raul Gil M. Gener, MD

“ "I met Bernadette at an open house in the area we were looking to purchase a new home.

Bernadette helped my family with a very tough decision about moving out of our home, after 16 years, and moving to another part of town. She not only brought to the table the knowledge of home sales but she made it easier with her personality. Always willing to go the extra mile to make sure we were taken care of both with the sale of a home and the purchase of another. Staying in touch after all these years is a testament of that. " - Val Kniffen”

Val Kniffen

Cinthia and I would like to thank your team for all your efforts in helping us find our new home, and for being a friend of the family.

Being our first time purchasing a home, I appreciate that you were there for us every day of the process. Your persistence, follow up and organization are admired. Everything was handled in a most professional manner and we both agree that better agenst couldn't have been chosen. Should we know anybody in search of a property, I will proudly refer them to you. As I had mentioned to you earlier, this home is a "stepping stone" for us, and will eventually become an investment property. Our plan is to stay only until we grow out of it. We dont intend on leaving this fine city, so some years down the road we will be requirng your services for a local property purchase once again.  Respectfully,  Richard J. Sanchez

Good man on follow up and help out in questions.

"I would like to recommend Debbie Docherty as a great real estate agent.

I have worked with her and have found her to be very professional and friendly. One of the best agents that I have ever met?"- Ted Nguyen

Tim sold me my home in Huntington Beach, CA 20 years ago.

Since then he has always stayed in touch. Tim is one of the hardest working guys I know. He sold that HB home for us 2.5 years ago. He was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and made the whole experience enjoyable. Honestly, as one knows selling a home is stressful but Tim made it a piece of cake!

Paula LaRosa

I am so happy I chose Eva to sell my home.

Her knowledge, integrity, professionalism, & marketing abilities were unsurpassed! She got me more money than I expected and ran a very smooth transaction with full communication. Eva is simple the best agent, ever!! I highly recommend her to anyone needing a great Realtor!

"I would recommend and request Debbie and Amie to represent me in any real estate transaction whether it be to purchase or sell.

They are extremely professional and experienced and know their business. Simply, they are first rate real estate representatives and came highly recommended to us by a neighbor who was totally satisfied by their performance." - Ronnie Zacker, A Satisfied Seller

When purchasing our home, we worked with Beth McCloskey at the Clegg Team.

  She was extremely professional and kept us informed daily as the sale progressed.  Each time we returned to view the home, Beth was there to answer all of our questions and concerns. We would recommend contacting Beth if you are considering selling your home or purchasing a new home

S. Kingsland

Carin helped us both buy and sell our first home.

As firsttime homebuyers and sellers she guided us through the many steps involved in the transactions and made sure everything was in order and taken care of. We purchased our home as a shortsale and Carin was able to close the deal for us despite numerous challenges along the way. She is a highly skilled agent when it comes to negotiating and "fighting" for her clients. We got everything we asked for and some! When we decided it was time to sell our home Carin made the process feel effortless and organized, and in a time of stress that is very well appreciated! She is always on time and prepared and you feel that you truly have her full focus. We both felt that she invested her time and knowledge on a personal level and that making us happy really mattered to her. After getting to know Carin we do consider her a friend for life and we would gladly refer anyone looking to buy or sell a home to her!

Emelie Allouche

Overall my experience working with Kin had been an excellent one.

She would go out of her way to help me get my house ready to sell. She helped me find a contractor to remodel the house and helped me staged the house for sale. She coordinated the whole thing without me really having to do much. It was truly an amazing and seamless process. After I put my house up for sale I got multiple offers and sold the house within a short period of time. It would not be possible without her help. Kin is an experienced, professional, and knowledgeable real estate agent. I was amazed by the nice looking flyers and marketing materials she provided, along with the professional photos of my house. She gave me regular updates throughout the entire process and I always felt very well informed. I definitely thanked her for helping me with the entire selling process. I highly recommend Kin if you need an agent to buy or sell your house.

Don L

My experience with John and Chelsea has been top notch at every level.

They have helped me with buying and selling a home and both experiences were excellent! They know the market and treat you like family. I recommend John & Chelsea, first team to everyone!

John B Sipple Alba Shamata

Our experience has been nothing but exceptional with the Duarte Group!

!! Alex is a well knowledge patient realtor. He explains everything clearly and thoroughly. Any questions that my wife and I have, Alex never hesitates to answer. He literally has a answer to every of our questions. Alex has put us at ease throughout our house hunt experience. We give Alex a HIGH recommendation to anyone that is looking for a exceptional Realtor agent! He's #1 in our books!!!!

Selling our home was an unfamiliar process for us, Tom made us feel comfortable at all times.

He was involved in every step of the sales process and always gave options to help us make the decisions to meet our individual goals. We highly recommend Tom DeCuir...M/M Bastug

When my mother passed away in May, as executor of her estate, I needed to sell her Garden Grove condo.

I live in Roswell, Georgia, and was concerned about the challenges of selling a property on the other side of the country. I interviewed a couple of realtors, but after meeting Kin, I was confident in her abilities as well as knowledge of the local real estate market. I was not disappointed. At the time of the listing, Kin told me she believed she could have the house in escrow by the end of June. I thought that was a pretty bold statement. I was delighted when she beat her own estimate by nearly ten days. Kin was remarkably responsive to whatever need came up; from finding an estate liquidator to dealing with the HOA. I would highly recommend Kin.

Ken W

Sylvia made the process enjoyable and easy.

She listened to what I wanted and showed me great options. She did all the heavy lifting and really made the experience stress free.

Robert Garrett

We met Josh at an open house, we did not have a realtor yet.

We were just looking on our own, as we do not like the pressure of realtors, as I usually say I feel like they can be like a Car salesman. He was so casual, honest, and easy going, leaving a great impression. We had been looking in Huntington Beach for a few months, and had a specific area that we wanted, and with the limited inventory we knew it would be difficult. We had actually bid on a home, and there were multiple offers, which made the home out of our price range. We knew that we would have to have a pocket listing, so we would have a better chance to get it and not have to worry about losing a home again to a bidding war. Josh grew up here, works, and raised his family here, so he knew the area, and was able to guide us on what we were looking for. We had a short window based on the sale of our house, in addition to trying to enroll our kids in school. Well Josh took it upon himself to do some research of homes that had been listed but didn't sale. He went "door knocking" as they say, and got the attention of one owner. That owner called him and that was it, we were on our way to buying our new home. We lived out of town, and he scheduled and handled all of the important things, appraisal, inspection, plumbers, etc. When you have Josh, you have him, and his team. It is so comforting to know you have so much expert advise and help. We highly recommend Josh. It was a great experience and we are so blessed to be in our dream home. If you are looking for a realtor, Josh Mohr is who you should use.

Derek Trabilcy

It is my pleasure to review Kin Ly as our real estate agent.

Kin has a great attitude. She is personable, honest, and has great confidence in her abilities which shows by her sense of fulfillment when serving her clients. Her beautifully developed flyer and marketing background are a big plus when it comes to advertising and making your house more marketable. Kin’s ability to speak English, Mandarin, Vietnamese, and Cantonese is a bonus to her local knowledge. We wish her much success.

Danielle A

Every time we had questions they were always available to talk and we truly felt like we had a friend in our corner.

We have recommended Debbie and Amie already and will continue to recommend them to anyone we come across looking to buy a house.

David & Carla Falcioni

We can't speak highly enough of our experience with Cari.

We were first-time home-buyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. She is honest and hands-on and she really helped to take the pressure off of us. Cari walked us through every step of the negotiations, even suggesting that we write a letter to the sellers to explain why we thought they should choose us. We will definitely recommend Cari to all our family and friends.

Lisa B.

We used Kin to find our home and she always came prepared and on time.

She would go out of her way to find us many different options as well as places that satisfied our needs. We would choose some homes but she would always have 10 or more that she researched on her own to show us. These homes always were a close criteria to what we wanted. She really does her homework and has a fascinating memory and sense of humor. We will definitely use her again, however, after finding us the perfect home, we may never move!!

Kris

It's been a couple weeks since we closed escrow on old house and new house and it's given me time to reflect on all you did to make the transaction happen for us.

You are an amazing realtor (and person!) and I can't thank you enough for all yo'uve done. I truly feel like you went above and beyond to expertly guide us through this life-changing decision. You were completely in tune with our desires and worked tirelessly to make them happen for us. You were completely invested in our dreams and committed to making them happen. Through it all, you never compromised your professionalism and high ethical standards. I truly respect you and recommend you as a realtor without hesitation. Thank you so much.

Darolyn Hamada

It was such a pleasure working with Matt Cortez.

He had all the answer's to our daughters (and her parents!) questions. We would highly recommend Matt to anyone who needs a qualified real estate agent. Matt's expert knowledge and professionalism during this whole process, gave our daughter the support she needed with buying her first home! Matt assisted our daughter at every step of the way with all the paperwork. Matt is very professional, attentive, invested, and honest. Thank you Matt!!!

Dale Wright

We heard of Eva through word of mouth and felt privileged that she would represent us to sell our condo and purchase our house.

This lady can truly work miracles! We placed a contingent offer on our forever dream home & with the market conditions, the odds of landing this home were bleak. The amount of home sellers accepting contingent offers was slim to nil. With her hard work, guidance, experience, and superior communication skills the dream became a reality and we were able to sell our condo and buy our dream home. Eva was on top of every detail, every step of the way & was able to coordinate both escrows to close together so we only made one move. We have never worked with a professional better than Eva. There was never a moment where we were out of the loop and she was detailed in educating us about the process along the way. She was punctual, patient, and technologically savvy. She was able to get us top dollar for our condo and a great deal on our home purchase. Eva will be your number one ally when purchasing or selling a home. We would refer all friends and family to Eva for any real estate matters.

Michael & Diana LaFontaine

It is with pleasure that my husband and I recommend The Sullivan Team as real estate agents.

When my husband and I began looking for a new property, they followed up with us on a regular basis and took the time to send us information on properties that might fit our needs. When it came time to list our property, the team got the job done. They thoroughly researched the comps in our area and were very clear with us about what they felt was a fair price for our property. They told us that they would try their best to sell our propety within a week. The Sullivan Team made themselves available for several open houses, inspections and even made sure that they were present at walk throughs when we were not home due to the fact that we have an indoor dog. Through lots of research, aggressive marketing and amazing networking, The Sullivan Team sold it in 5 days! The Sullivan Team went above and beyond for my husband and me not only in the sale of our property, but in the purchase of our new home. The team put together such a great offer that the listing agent for the property we purchased accepted her first contingency in over 30 years! The Sullivan Team was always quick to follow up on any questions we had along the way. They were very upfront and honest when advising us on how to proceed with certain items, such as counter offers and repair requests.  After escrow closes on a property many agents would be on to the next client, never to be heard from again. Not The Sullivan Team. They called us to see how things were going in our new home and continued to be avalable for questions that we had. In my opinion, it would be difficult to find more honest, upfront agents than The Sullivan Team . They are some of the few agents around that truly have their client's best interests at heart. My husband and I are certain that if you chose The Sullivan Team as your listing agents, you would be very pleased with the results. Sincerely, Kirsten and Adam Kinowski

Buying a home is easy as pie when you get to work with Debbie and Amie!

On New Year's Eve my husband and I were talking with a friend about our struggles to find a home when he suggested to have another set of eyes help us look for a home for us. Well, this set of eyes were Debbie and Amie and we are SOOOO glad we asked them for help.  We had been working with another Realtor over the past year and were constantly outbid from homes we wanted and directed to areas we did not want to live in.   However, as soon as we met Debbie we knew that things would be different. She is incredibly personable, and really listened to what we were looking for.  She did her homework for us and was incredibly sweet in taking the time to answer all our questions.  We were the first ones to see the house that we purchased, and after speaking to the sellers, this is what got us the house.  We are so thankful for Debbie and Amie, we know that we would not be in our new home without them.  We love our house and neighbor and feel so blessed that we found the perfect home.

Lenny & Debbee

Amazing!

!! Tom made the whole process of buying a home so much easier for my wife and I. This was our first home so we did not know what we were getting ourselves into. Tom was always there to answer any questions and to help us feel comfortable with the process. We are so thankful to have worked  with him and I'm happy to say we love our new home. :) If you're in the market for a home, he's your man!

Mark Mancilla

I worked with Tim with selling a family member's house when I lived out of the area.

Tim, and his team, were instrumental in getting the property sold and all the paperwork expedited. He worked closely with all of the other agents, contractors, cleaning, escrow personnel, etc. in order to get the  job done as quickly and efficiently as possible. If Tim did not answer his phone when I called, he would call me back as soon as he had a free moment. He even took care of business while he was on vacation or other family function. I really appreciated his attentiveness. You can't go wrong with the Branoffs!

Josh McHugh

This was our first time buying a home.

Eva made the experience so much easier for us. She cares about her clients and will go beyond her duties to make sure they are taken care of. We lucked out with her and will never use anyone else as long as she's still in the business.

Charles/Tatiana Stafford

Thank you so much for always being professional in the great service you provide.

All of your advise and experience made our selling and buying a home absolutely wonderful experience.  We are so greatful to be living in the location we wanted with all the benefits of a beautiful home, big back yard and cul-de-sac! Truly the house of our dreams! Thank you once again. Ken and Mary D., Lake Forest  

Greg was very professional and attentive to all our needs and questions throughout the process of buying our home.

He's a friendly, positive, confident agent. and we highly recommend him.

Richard and Kris J.

I want to thank Beth for the outstanding job she did on my new home purchase.

As a first time home buyer there were many things that are scary and confusing but Beth has demonstrated the ability to clear the issues while informing the buyer (me). I was very impressed with the standard of conduct she and her team operated at and hopefully the following chronology illustrates this point. Beth has all the intangibles such as easy to work with and good energy. She has my highest recommendation.

P. Yang

Many thanks for your professional and dedicated efforts.

The process has been seamless and enabled me to remain hands off....a first, and testament to your capabilities! Thanks again    Tom V

Greg was delightful to work with through the entire process of selling my home.

 He was motivated, supportive and very proactive in getting my house listed and sold.  I would highly recommend him if you are looking for a great realtor who will help you buy or sell your next home!

Erin Ilgen

Having spent 14+ years in the title and escrow industry I have had the oppurtunity to work with many Realtors.

In addition, I have purchased and sold three homes during the past 3 years and suffice it to say that The Sullivan Team stands head and shoulders above any that I have met and/or worked with. For many people, purchasing or selling a home can be one of the most traumatic experiences one can imagine. The Sullivan Team realizes this and takes the extra steps needed to ensure that all the i's are dotted and the t's are crossed. But it is much more than just paperwork. It is about characer and integrity. There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught. The Sullivan Team is about doing the right thing when nobody's looking. During the entire buying and selling process, I always felt that The Sullivan Team had my best interest in mind. Their communication and negotiation skills are second to none. In a business where it appears that there are more Real Estate Agents than there are buyers or sellers, The Sullivan Team stands head and shoulders above the rest. The old adage is 20% of the people make 80% of the deals happen. The Sullivan Team makes it happen for you. During the past 30 days The Sullivan Team was able to not only sell our home above the current market prie, but was also abe to help us purchase a home without feeling like we overpaid. In both transactions we walked away feeling like we got the best deal possible thanks to the team's fine efforts. If you are looking for  competent, friendly, no-pressure attitude Realtors, look no further than The Sullivan Team. Without their persistence and market knowledge we would not be in our fabulous new home today! Gorden and Kelli Gates

Thank you so much!

Your help and patience have been invaluable to us. Thank you for making it easy and almost painless! Brian and Kimber G., Long Beach

We meet Eva at an open house of a prior client and enjoyed just chatting with her about the house and neighborhood.

Eva was very responsive and accommodating to our unusual schedule and availability because we were moving down from the Bay area. In the end, we found a home that matched our needs in a community we desired. We would definitely work with Eva again.

I love these guys.

They listen when you tell them what you’re looking for and don’t waste your time showing you anything else. They are so much fun to be around. They treated us like friends and we always enjoyed being with them. Once we found the house we had to have, they negotiated in our favore. I love these guys and can’t imagine ever using anyone else.

Professional with a Personality… When making one of, if not the biggest financial decision of your life, I would without a doubt put that trust in Beth McCloskey.

The transparency of the way she does business gives the buyer the confidence they need to make the right decision. Whether you’re a first time home buyer, looking to upgrade, or a seasoned investor, Beth will treat every purchase like her own, ensuring the perfect fit for you.

Sylvia was great to work with!

She helped me finish a short sale, despite me living on the other side of the world! She was knowledgeable about the process, and was able to answer all of my questions along the way.

Wesley Anderson

Thanks for going out of your way!

We appreciate everything you do - selling the condo was a breeze for us! Deb and Phillip C. , Huntington Beach  

Sylvia is an excellent sales person with extensive knowledge and personal skill.

She pays attention to details and thinks through problems inside and outside the box. I appreciated her help and encouragement when handling the sale of my old home and new.

Bette A Smith

The excellent service on the recent sale of our property went so well I decided to write you a letter.

Thank you for being so professional, prompt and on top of everything from beginning to end. I was especially impressed with the advertising, as well as, keeping us informed at all times. The excellent service you provided ensured great results. As our Realtors you have the ability to make a somewhat stressful situation into a wonderful experience. In the future I will not hesitate to refer your services to friends, family and business partners. Sullivan Team, thanks again for providing excellent customer service. First Team Real Estate you are truly appreciated. Sincerely,  Diane McConnell

Mary Ann was an incredibly proficient agent for us.

The marketing of our property was top-shelf, just as she had promised it would be. We had multiple offers with 2 weeks, and her negotiation skill/advice was pivotal to a quick sale agreement and close of escrow. The whole process was made so easy for us, and I will not hesitate to use her again. Thank you Mary Ann!

Carin is hands down the greatest realtor.

She is very helpful, hard working, and makes sure her clients come first; not to mention, she knows her stuff. Carin helped my husband and I find a beautiful home with all the specifications we had in mind. We definitely recommend her if you're looking to buy or sell your property with ease and smooth sailing.

Incredibly knowledgable and helpful. We felt she always had our best interest in mind. Leo and Julie

“After searching for a house for almost a year and losing a house by not going in with an agent was not only heartbreaking but nerve racking and stressful.

So after we lost the house that we thought was it we discussed hiring a Buyers Agent to be on our side. That’s when we met Bernadette Vaszily at an Open House. Once we spent over 30 minutes with her we knew she was the one to fight for our new home in this tough market of over bidders. She was always on the hustle finding us the most recent houses that fit our request and getting into them the same day. It is almost like she has an intuitive instinct and a clover in her pocket. When we came out of another Open House we told her it was close but just missed one request. Then she looked across the street and said, “That’s the house you need.” It was a fixer upper unlike the turn key we just walked out of. However, from the outside it checked all the boxes. She went and spoke to the owner on our behalf later that evening after we heard a rumor from another agent that the house may be listed in the near future. To make a long story short she backed us, guided us and helped us get our beautiful Forever Home that checked ALL of the boxes. We hired her in November and we received our Keys Jan 27. We did not compromise. She is amazing and we will be referring her to all family and friends. The Hefners ”

Eva was wonderful to work with.

Her professional work ethics, real estate knowledge, and excellent communication and problem resolving skills is first class!!

Buying or selling, Jeremiah is the agent to call.

Six years ago my wife and I met Jeremiah after being frustrated with two prior agents. We knew what we were looking buy, but the prior agents seemed pushy, attempting to have us settle for for what we didn’t want. Jeremiah is patient and knowledgeable of the market, and in the end we purchased exactly what we were looking for at a fair market price. A very satisfying experience from start to finish. Over the years, Jeremiah remained in contact with us. We never considered calling anyone else when we were ready to sell. Again, Jeremiah knows the housing market. With a few suggested inexpensive upgrades (Jeremiah knows any type of contractor you may need) it showed fabulously and our home went on the market for more than we had anticipated. By the evening of our first open house, multiple bids were submitted. Jeremiah is a great negotiator, and as a result we sold for our asking price and our desired escrow terms. The sale of our home set a new high in our area for comps. You can rely on Jeremiah to explain and guide you through either buying or selling. Furthermore, we can testify that the man you meet, is the agent you receive. Honest, open to your needs, capable, knowledgeable, reliable. Thank you Jeremiah, Dennis and Cyndie

"I met Bernadette at an open house in the area we were looking to purchase a new home.

Bernadette helped my family with a very tough decision about moving out of our home, after 16 years, and moving to another part of town. She not only brought to the table the knowledge of home sales but she made it easier with her personality. Always willing to go the extra mile to make sure we were taken care of both with the sale of a home and the purchase of another. Staying in touch after all these years is a testament of that.

I recently had the pleasure of working as the Buyer’s Agent on a transaction with Sylvia Garrett on one of her listings.

Sylvia was very easy to work with. She was upfront, direct, honest and had a great understanding of the business. Her experience in Real Estate was evident in our first conversation. I knew that I was working with a professional. Sylvia and I were able to communicate with each other on a regular basis. Everyone involved knew exactly where we were throughout the transaction. She was able to anticipate and remedy potential issues before they became issues at all. I recommend to potential customers and colleagues to work with Sylvia Garrett if given the opportunity. Trust that you will be in good hands. Respectfully, Alex Montelongo, Broker Alex Montelongo Real Estate Group Coldwell Banker Star Realty BRE Lic #01456982

Alex Montelongo, Broker

Sylvia has an attention to detail that other agents can only aspire to - escrow is a blizzard of paperwork and Sylvia is a master of managing the process to a smooth timely conclusion.

I have closed 2 escrows with Sylvia in the last year and I only wish the agents on the other side of each transaction were as professional as Sylvia. Sylvia is always well prepared with the facts when either listing or showing property. I know that when Sylvia is involved I will have the best available information and the benefit of her advice in making the right decision based on my circumstances. I have recommended her to friends and family and have heard nothing but rave reviews. If you want an agent that listens to you, manages the process and is your advocate you need to work with Sylvia Garrett.

Kathi Rank

Tom and his assistants were extremely helpful.

The property he listed was part of an Estate Sale. I was living up in Utah and tom kept contact with me almost daily and had to take care of a lot of extra things like new carpet paint ect. I can't thank him enough for his expertise and knowledge in marketing the property and seeing to the closing in a timely manor.

Christene Dowell

This is 2nd time I used Sylvia to rent my home.

I live in Europe and she handled everything. Always a pleasure. Easy!

Phyllis Larkin

Debbie and Amie are the best!

They are both very knowledgeable and really show expertise in everything they do. Buying a home was so stressful for me; not understanding all of the language, or understanding everything I was signing etc, . But both Debbie and Amie put me at ease and walked me through every step of the way. They are both kind hearted and made this experience purchase one that I will not regret. I give them 5 stars 🌟 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 🌟

Judie Larcher

I was referred to Carin Lundahl through a friend when I was needing to sell my mom's home.

I was immediately impressed with the ease in which Carin communicated. Her knowledge of the market, and more importantly, her understanding of the neighborhood where my mom's home is located, made choosing Carin as our realtor a very easy decision. Throughout the selling process, Carin was always very responsive and quick to communicate with me regarding any concerns I had with the sale. I highly recommend Carin Lundahl to anyone wishing to sell or buy a home.

Fellow homeowners, stop looking!

My home was a very special custom build, with wonderful, often overlooked features. Approaching 1 million in value, kinda at first look outside, not really appearing to be "special." Eva, upon walking through our home took immediate action and explained, in full detail her marketing plan, and what her team would do to show the attention to detail, and all of the beautiful, very unique features. Her plan as well as wonderful staging, not only made my home stand out, but was a labor of love. Extreme attention to detail, and of course, appeasing me, each and every step. The home was in mint condition just after a complete refurbish, it was spotless and of course, I loved the it. Her dedication to my, sometimes over the top preaching to not "mess up" my hard work, was beyond my expectations. Careful staging, listening to each and every word, and caring for my home. Was I perhaps a difficult client...yes? But Eva took my love of the home, went full speed towards selling it, and finding perfect buyers for my baby. With the value being higher than perhaps other homes near me, but completely worth the value, Eva had her hands full. But, her plan to show off this home, with drone photos, and wonderful and extremely high quality photography took off. Then and extremely fast web site posts, her entire teams support and tours, well, I was stunned. Fast, effeciant, focused and so professional, I relaxed and let Eva run. Being a business owner, a marketing and sales director, of course, I was at first extremely critical. Very quickly, I basically decided to step back, watch her dedication, experience and professionalism and, which is hard for me being a type A personality, get out of the way. Every little detail was taken care of. Each and every, perhaps over the top concern was addressed, taken in and smoothly handled. I am an extremely critical, and detailed personality and do not give fluffy or undeserved testimonials. Now the rough stuff, and not due to Eva....but because of her experience, she found some troubling issues, running some reports on my property, that needed immediate resolutions. Financially related, I had no idea were there from many years ago, but put the sale to a screaching halt. Again, Eva not only stepped up to the plate, but immediately got her team involved. Loan officers, title specialists, conference calls with legal teams. I was basically punch drunk with confusion and stress but, Eva and the team immediately formed a game plan, took action and made sure I was protected, educated and all of this before there could be a possible nasty law suit and damaging financial penalties for me. This was all caught purely because Eva is awesome, for in my many years of buying and selling homes, never have I had an agent have my back like this. And this amazing "catch" she took care of in the background, not just sitting back, hoping for a smooth sale and purely thinking of a commission check. All I can say on this matter is, without her, my home would be locked up in a legal battle, thousands of dollars wasted on attorneys, and worse, the wonderful buyers she found without a home. With the recent recession, I always say the people that "try" sales have moved on, leaving the true professionals, still working, thriving and shinning. I have hired and trained hundreds of salespeople, read, studied just about everything you can get your hands on for over 30 years. Am I critical of sales staff, teams and pitches, oh yes, with zero tolerance? With all of my experience and honesty, writing this for all to read I take very seriously; Eva is a true professional and top of the line. She is the shining example of Relationship Selling. But more importantly, it not a game, pitch or act; true to the core, honestly and integrity beyond question, and tremendous experience. My neighbors were just amazed at the volume of potential buyers! And I do believe, my concerns with finding the perfect buyers for my beloved neighbors, she took seriously. And yes she did! My home is loved by the buyers, my friends are very happy with the wonderful family Eva found, and I am off to my next venture and life. Folks, if your looking for a true professional, have any concerns with hiring an agent, believe me...Eva will change your opinions on real estate salespeople. Sadly, my situation was probably the most difficult she ever faced. A smile, dedication, honesty and integrity, experience beyond belief, and with a drive only few people I have ever met; Eva is a gem!

Working with Amie and Debbie to buy our house was an absolute joy.

They walked us through every step of the process, communicated clearly and promptly, and handled every detail with care. Amie helped us find our first rental in California two years ago after moving cross-country, and when it came time to buy, choosing a realtor was an easy choice. Without hesitation, I would recommend Amie and Debbie to anyone looking to buy a house in Orange County.

James Vincent

Tim is a great guy!

Very smart and professional.

Kevin Brown & Lydia Morgan

House sold quickly.

Eva knows the neighborhood!

Randall/Ann Barr

We found Carin to be the ultimate professional.

She followed up with all entities involved to make sure they were not dragging their feet. She went into detail all the forms we were required to sign. We knew what and why we were signing. Carin went over all the forms/ paperwork for the house we were buying as well. Catching a few errors we had made. She worked with our agent in San Diego, to make sure he knew exactly we were in the selling process. Carin was able make happen the closing both escrows to happen one day after the other, which worked very well for us. To sum Carin Lundahl up, Professional, detail oriented,great follow up, articulate, well versed in her profession. We would recommend that you allow Carin Lundahl to have your back. She earns her money. 

Patrick and Rochelle Rhodes

Debbie and Amie are a first class experience!

Professional yet warm and genuinely want the best for you! Sold our house in 3 days! They’re the best team around!

Mr and Mrs. Grabs

My experience with the First Team Duarte Group was amazing!

!! If you are looking to sell quickly, get the best price and professional service beyond your highest expectations then you want Alex and Leo as your agents. The best team ever. They really know their stuff. They staged my home with my furniture, art work, brought me boxes to declutter and put non-essential items into storage preparing me ahead of time for my move. The even sent someone in to deep clean and take professional photos for marketing. Did I say it was free, no extra charge and all before putting it on the market and having open house. All of this during the worst winter rain and cold Huntington Beach has seen in years. This dynamic team took me through the process in baby steps one at a time. I’m retired and don’t move as quickly as these young guys, but I never felt overwhelmed or stressed. Best of all Alex and Leo really care about people and really listen to what you are saying and understand what is most meaningful to you. Like my fur babies and being close to my son and daughter-in-law who are expecting twins in the early fall. When my friends say how did you get so lucky to find this place…it’s beautiful. I tell them, I didn’t find it. I just told Alex and Leo what would be ideal and all they said was we will keep our eyes open. Well, the very next day I had an email with the was a picture of my new place, that day I had an appointment to view. The day my escrow closed I was signing my new lease. They work quickly and efficiently. They don’t drop the ball. To top it off, they are really nice guys that you want to call friends.

Great thanks!

Jeff just finished his residency and we plan 4-6 years in this house. So keep in touch because we would 100% want your help again, you were such a godsend. I intend to write a letter of recommendation that you can show people. You probably have like 1500 of them! Tabbie and Jeff N., Fountain Valley  

Very helpful agent who was always on time and available for our meetings.

Always responsive to our many emails and calls. Very recommendable for first time buyers who have a lot of doubts about the home-buying process. He is young, knowledgeable and enthusiastic with his work, which is probably  more important than having years of experience in this field.

Pablo Etchemendy

My wife and I recently closed on the purchase of our home and we chose to work with Greg and his father Dan.

Greg's knowledge of the Huntington Beach market really helped us weigh the pros and cons of the various sub-markets within Huntington Beach which helped us focus on the development where we finally purchased our home. No two transactions are the same and Greg's real estate experience really helped us maximize the value of our dollar through the negotiations of the contract. He is the epitome of a true professional and we will not hesitate to work with him again.

Matt and Sherry Thomas

Sylvia really listened to us to determine what we wanted out of the sale process.

She embraced it, and worked diligently toward that goal. Very impressive. We were very satisfied with the outcome.

Steven and Karen Brink

When I met Beth at an open house, she was warm and friendly.

Intuitively, I felt she was also honest and ethical. I called her some time later to discuss the sale of my condo and we scheduled a meeting. Beth, and manager Brian Bogs, came fully prepared with a notebook of data—current listings, recent sales, and most importantly, data showing that the Jody Clegg Team was one of the top two real estate sales teams in Huntington Beach. I felt I could trust the sale of my home to Beth McCloskey and the Jody Clegg Real Estate team. They printed a gorgeous flyer to promote the sale of my home and scheduled open house appointments resulting in multiple offers! In no time, my home was sold and the escrow process was completed. The sale process went very smoothly—from our first meeting in late March to the close of escrow in mid-June. I highly recommend Beth McCloskey to handle your real estate sale.

Dan listed and sold our home and helped us find a great new home.

It was a difficult transaction but he was calm, helpful and professional. I have and would recommend him to anyone that asks.

From the beginning, Ms Spoolstra has been extremely efficient, knowledgeable and patient.

She explained and advised me of all transactions. I would have been lost without her focus and guidance!

Maria Cristina Cunningham

Debbie Rose is a highly skilled professional who has helped me buy and sell multiple homes over many years.

I can always count on her to look out for my family's best interests. She has an uncanny ability to find the right buyer at the best possible price, and the right home for my family, while  being a thorough, determined negotiator. Her partner Chris is consistently prompt in putting together the multitude of documents for signing, and turning them around quickly. He provides excellent photography and video services, making virtual walk throughs feel like you're right there. They make an outstanding team, and I recommend them highly!

Alyce Nelson

We are so grateful to Chris and Debbie with The Rose Team for providing OUTSTANDING care and service while selling our family home.

They are both so knowledgeable and they have great resources that ensured our home was represented in the best possible light. They are true professionals and  always go the extra mile!! Everything went so fast and smooth - our home sold for $15,000 over asking price - we are just thrilled!!! Thank you!

James R & Kathleen M Coronado

My wife and I have been licensed real estate professionals since 1988 with our own business in Sacramento.

When it came time to exchange our Huntington Beach rental via a Section 1031 exchange, we decided to hire a local agent to represent our interest for both the selling and purchasing sides of the transaction. We went to many local open houses to observe and discuss with local agents how they did business. We experienced the full spectrum of quality of agents, but when we met Tom McChesney at his open house we knew we had found a highly professional agent that conducted business the way we did. Our service motto for our Sacramento business was "Service with Integrity". Tom also clearly reflected this business ethic. He was very helpful in marketing our property, but more importantly, he listened to what our objectives were in seeking a replacement property and actively worked with us in fulfilling our replacement objectives. The result was a property that was better positioned in the marketplace for solid growth potential and increasing rental revenues. He offered solid advice on the offer price and provided comparative market information to assist in our offering price. Tom provided timely and accurate services along the entire transactions. We are delighted with our replacement investment property. We recommend Tom McChesney to anyone seeking solid professional real estate services. Thank you Tom!

Knowledgable and thorough with excellent communication.

Generous and complete transparency in the home-buying process. Could not imagine buying another home without them.

Damon Alavekios

On my day off I was walking through Downtown Huntington Beach when I decided to stop at an open house where I met Jeremiah.

We talked for a while and the more we talked I realized Jeremiah could help me realize my dream of selling my home and getting another place. Jeremiah was always courteous, mindful of my needs and there to answer my questions. He never stopped working hard and dedicated himself to the difficult task of selling my home. Jeremiah never swayed from showing many potential buyers and asking the right questions to get my place sold. When I was looking for a new place to buy he asked all of the right questions to get me into the right home. At the time I didn’t know what my dream home was but I knew my real estate needs were in good hands, like Allstate, through the entire process of selling and buying. After 17 years of living in my previous place I finally feel like I now have a place that I can really call home, thanks to Jeremiah.

It was a pleasure working with Alex, whom we met at one of his open houses; We were impressed by the graphic presentation package he gave us and immediately decided to have him as our agent.

..no one else seemed to be interested in helping us with the budget we had. He worked hard to find us a home  but we were either being beat out by cash buyers or the places were just not right...we were picky despite our low budget. After almost about 7-8 months of working with him, through his many sources, he managed to get us into a condo that was not on the public market. He negotiated with them and within a week or so we were filling out paperwork. Though we didn't get the extra bath we wanted, the condo had everything else that was essential such 2 bedrooms, +800sq.ft., 2nd floor, close family, shopping & entertainment areas. All in all we were pleased to have met this young man whom had the demeanor compatible with our personalities: He was patient, honest, diligent, seemed to care about us, enjoys what he does and was very willing to help. If I had to say anything that would be less positive I'd say that he could have been a little more assertive with the sellers' agents but I'm sure that will come with more experience. Keep up the good work Alex!

Sylvia went above and beyond from day one!

!! She wont stop until you have the home you've always dreamed of. Not only did we meet the greatest most experienced realtor, we gained a forever friend. Sylvia was truly a pleasure to work with and We will not hesitate to use her services for any future transactions!

This is a letter of recommendation for The Sullivan Team, of First Team Real Estate, who represented my wife and I as our real estate agent, this past May for the sale of our home in Westminster we had lived in for 34 years.

We were not only selling our home but were buying a home in Leisure World Seal Beach, of which we needed to borrow money to pay cash for it. The Sullivan Team put us in touch with a lender and were most helpful in all aspects of the situation. In dealing with The Sullivan Team, it was such a pleasure, he world apprise us of what was going on every day with prospective buyers, and since it was a very stressful situation they were most helpful in always keeping a positive outlook on things. The Sullivan Team steered us professionally through all the many twists and turns that occur during the selling of a home, and I am sure that they were able to sell our home for the very highest top dollar, and in future if I or any of my friends needed the services of a real estare agent I would highly recommend The Sullivan Team. The Sullivan Team, after all the many ups and down we had in selling our home, we now consider as one of our many friends. Regards,  Ralph and Lucille Dixon

Dixon

Kin Ly maintained professionalism throughout the entire selling process.

She provided high quality marketing tools to promote the sale of the house. She always followed through with visits and phone calls to discuss buyer opinions and options. Kin Ly made herself available all week and weekend long. She worked tirelessly, holding countless open house weekends. She made herself knowledgeable about the area comps, became familiar with the neighborhood and prospective buyers. She excels in her chosen field.

Suzer

Very pleased with Eva and all the help she provided during our quick 21 day process.

I appreciate your sound advice; hard work and patience while helping me buy my new home.

I never felt like just another paycheck, but you truly listened and assisted me in exploring all my options. I have already referred you to friends, confident you'll take great care to find them their next home. Thomas A., Garden Grove  

Tom did an amazing job in helping me to find the perfect vacation condo in Huntington Beach.

He was very professional and prompt every step of the way. Tom would always let me know when new listing came up and was willing to show them to me right away. He was also very knowledgeable about the market and therefore was able to provide the pros and cons of a particular property. I would definitely recommend Tom to anyone for real estate transactions and/or rental assistance.

Tim is a consummate professional

Joseph & Gale Abiad

Chuck and his team helped us sell our house.

They earned the opportunity by being very helpful while canvassing the neighborhood and getting back with me whenever I had a question. I realized I would be talking a lot with my agent during the sale, so I wanted a knowledgeable, pleasant  person to work with. They gave advice on how to proceed through various issues, but was never pushy. They even suggested we follow a path that would result in less commission for him as he thought the potential buyer could string us along (which was actually excellent advice because they did!). His backup team at Buscemi was always there if needed and we had a great experience with them.

Tim

John and Chelsea were absolutely amazing.

John and Chelsea and First Team were referred by a friend and we could not have been more pleased. My fiance and I were first time home buyers so the whole process was extremely scary, nerve racking, and we were honestly lost in how it all worked. John and Chelsea walked us through the whole process and met with us every weekend or weekday and was beyond accommodating. They were always on top of setting up the places we wanted to see and when we went into negotiations they talked us through that process as well. Given the time it takes and the pressures surrounding the whole ordeal, we couldn't imagine having anyone else to get us through it all on a super positive note! We plan on staying in-touch for the forever future.

Dan Muzik Alisha Cornick

Dear Mr.

Sire: We recently had the pleasure of selling and purchasing a house using the services of Carin Lundahl, who works out of your office. We use the word "pleasure" intentionally, as Carin made what could have been a most frustrating experience, given today's market, into one we look back upon with happiness and gratitude.   We first put our house in Fountain Valley on the market in January, and put a bid on a house at the same time. Carin worked closely with us and gave us great advice and guidance during the process. Unfortunately, during that process, the market began to change; bidders on our house turned out not to be serious, and after a period of time, we had to cancel escrow on the house we were purchasing, and eventually took our home off the market. The experience was emotionally draining for us, and Carin was always supportive, and understanding to our decision at that time.   After two months of sitting out and regrouping, we re-entered the market armed with a fresh attitude and Carin's energy; we are pleased to say that last month we not only closed the sale of our house, but on the purchase of the house we had originally wanted some eight months ago - at a net savings compared to the price levels existing at that time. We now are settled happily in our new house, and owe that to Carin, who was persistent in her efforts, but always respectful of our desires and our state of mind. She is a rarity in today's business world - a true professional who sincerely cares about her clients, not just a potential income, but as real individuals.   We trust you are aware that you have such a person working in your office, but we just wanted to share our thoughts and feelings with you. Anybody we know who will ever be looking to buy and/or sell their house, you can rest assured we will refer Carin's way. Gary and Laurie O., Fountain Valley  

My husband and I wanted to take this oppurtunity to acknowledge and express our deep appreciation in the ethical and knowledgeable manner The Sullivan Team conducted themselves throughout the process of purchasing our new home.

  The Sullivan Team demonstrated their knowledge of the marketplace as they showed us a variety of homes that were focused on our specific needs and expectations. In addition, they were accessible to answer questions and concerns. This was also exemplified during the last few days as we closed escrow and confronted last minute items that needed their assistance to be resolved. We ran into various challenges with regards to scheduling and The Sullivan Team was very flexible in accomodating our nontradional work hours. In the end, The Sullivan Team was an integral part in cooordinating efforts between our lender, escrow and their own staff to help us close escrow in time. The house that they assisted us in purchasing is one that we forsee ourselves building a family over the years to come. We truly appreciate their diligence, patience, and professional manner and would not hesitate to recommend their services to our friends, family and colleagues.

Sylvia helped me buy a home and was wonderful to work with.

I'm a pretty picky buyer but she was patient and helpful, and figured out what I was really looking for based on what I said about the houses I didn't like. She always made me feel like she wanted to help me find me a home that I would love, rather than just seeing me as a potential commission. And during the buying process, she was extremely responsive, and totally on top of things. She is a wealth of knowledge and her experience made me feel comfortable throughout.

Tom, I would like to thank you for your excellent help with the sale of my house during a challenging time in the Real Estate Market.

Your professionalism is very impressive, I really appreciated all of your communication with me and my busy travel schedule. Your friendly and personal character truly reflects the passion for what you do...Mahalo ! ...K. Hamrock,  World Champion Surfer 2002 

Thank you for sticking around and for not giving up although at times there was not much hope to find the home we truly liked.

Your enthusiasm energy,ethics and friendship are trades lacking in many individuals today, which is why I know now more than ever why people just love doing business with you. Once again, THANK YOU.                  Frankie and Cristi R

Kevin truly goes above and beyond for his clients.

I appreciate his professionalism and attention to detail. He always made time to answer my questions and address any concerns that I had. The difficult home buying process was made easier with his assistance. Kevin is a class act.

Carin is a true real estate professional.

Carin is an expert in all phases of purchasing or selling property. I would highly recommend Carin as she has helped me buy and sell two properties. Carin is very knowledgeable in short sales and stuck in there with me until the house sold. If not for Carin I think the bank would have foreclosed on the property. Carin will go the extra mile for you. She is always on top of the paper work that is necessary for a smooth closing! You won't go wrong by letting Carin Lundahl represent you for all of your real estate needs. Besides that she is a really nice person too!!! Thank you Carin, Regards, Chuck Deaver

I have difficulty putting into words what an amazing experience I have had by selecting Kin Ly as my agent.

After having the wrong realtors twice in the past, and interviewing 3 others before Kin, I knew instantly she was the right one this time. She is much more than just a realtor. She knows her stuff like nobody else! She recommended the listing price (which was the same as the other realtors interviewed.) She listed my townhome, staged and photographed it, had an Open House two days later and brought in 10 great offers. She has more than exceeded all my expectations! She will go out of her way to put you first, and is always available. She stays with her client from beginning to end (helping me now find my next home.)

Dear Ms.

Cardullo, In addition to the review we placed on Zillow, I would like to add that, after my initial phone call to Carin Lundahl, whose warmth, knowledge and passion for helping people were, immediately, apparent, there was a lengthy period in which my husband and I wavered as to whether we thought we wanted to sell our condo rental at Bixby Village. A long term tenant and flood to our unit, in addition to us being out of town owners, were complicating factors. Carin never pressured us to sell but assisted us past the flood with her wisdom and reassurance and continued to keep us updated on the market. What a wonderful feeling it was to know that, whether or not we ever listed our property, Carin's first priority would always be what was best for us. Carin was immensely helpful in choosing the timing for our listing and pricing it perfectly. We were so impressed with how she negotiated for us when offers came in. She was a fierce advocate, protecting us from adverse contractual contingencies and gaining concessions for us. Her hard work, dedication and integrity over the years earned her the respect and admiration of buyers' agents, as well as the buyers, themselves. Carin was a dynamo in employing total marketing efforts, following up with us and pouring hours of her time and energy into accomplishing a hugely successful sale and close. We were amazed at her grace and finesse at every turn and, especially. how she inspired our tenant to release us from the bonds of the long term lease we had with him to allow for a, practically, miraculous result. We would like to mention, also, that Carin's colleague, Miriam Mann, took care of our listing while Carin had to be away on personal business. Miriam, too, is a delight, and kept us updated and, like Carin, was very encouraging at a time when we were facing some daunting challenges up here on the Monterey Peninsula. We can see why Carin and Miriam are close friends. There is one more comment we would like to make: Talented agents like Carin and Miriam are very selective about the real estate firms with which they associate. These two agents speak volumes for the excellence of First Team Real Estate, Inc. Thank you for "loaning" two of your incredible agents to us. What Carin accomplished for us has been a major and priceless step toward financial security for my husband and me and, to borrow, in essence, what another ultra-satisfied client reported on Zillow, Carin seems "... like a treasured friend to us" over and above being an unparalleled real estate agent. Blessings and gratitude to you, Carin and Miriam and your outstanding company, Hershel and Andrea Harrod

Sylvia represented my husband and I in the sale of our condo, and the purchase of our 1st home.

She carries a wealth of knowledge about real estate, and uses a variety of techniques to market and sell any property. She is very responsive and always 2 steps ahead of the competition. Rest assured, you are in good hands when Sylvia is on your team. Lauren H.

Tom, I just wanted to thank you for the amazing job you did as my Realtor, as you know, I interviewed several agents before choosing you.

While other agents tried to sell themselves on mere enthusiasm, you brought a level of professionalism, knowledge and marketing that was unmatched. What made you stand out from the others was your degree of preparation and attention to detail. This was the first time I had ever sold a house, and working with you made it so much less stressful than it could have been. Thank you again for everything!.... D.Ghetti

We have been very fortunate to have worked with Jeremiah on two occasions, both times he has helped us to fulfill our home-buying dreams.

He has a developed ability to balance a high level of professionalism, integrity and enthusiasm while keeping his clients needs and expectations at heart. If we ever decide to down-size or dream bigger, we'll definitely be working with Jeremiah again.

Denise G.

I thought everyone on the team was exceptional - from Beth, to Ally, to Ericka.

I would highly recommend them!

Lisa Galloway

Carin has been absolutely wonderful to work with during our first house hunting process in the Orange County.

She made it so easy, stress-free, and actually enjoyable! This was both mine and my husbands first time being a house, we had no idea what this process consisted of except the horrible stories we heard from friends and family. But our experience was far far from that, all thanks to Carin! She was very knowledgeable with the current market rate, she always gave us her honest opinion, and we valued her opinion very high! I can not say enough nice things about Carin and her expertise! She is purely dedicated to her work, and no matter when or where, she will be there ready to show you a house! She is so thorough when it comes down to writing an offer, and spent over 2 hours explaining every single detail on the contract in which I loved, making me feel 100% comfortable in signing the documents. Thank you so much for helping us find our dream home!!

Kishan and Beenal Patel

Thank you for letting me observe your open house.

Your people skills are excellent and your organizational style very efficient.  I look forward to working with you in the future.     Margaret O'Brien

Kin Ly maintained professionalism throughout the entire selling process.

She provided high quality marketing tools to promote the sale of the house. She always followed through with visits and phone calls to discuss buyer opinions and options. Kin Ly made herself available all week and weekend  long. She worked tirelessly, holding countless open house weekends. She made herself knowledgeable about the area comps, became familiar with the neighborhood and prospective buyers. She excels in her chosen field.

I had the privilege of meeting Debbie and Amie, this wonderful, friendly mother and daughter, when they hosted an open house in my neighborhood.

  I left that open house knowing they would be the first I’d call for any future real estate need I would have!   About a year or so later, I was in dire need of some honest, professional advice regarding my home and real estate trends in general, so I did contact them.  They remembered me, where I lived and we set up a meeting immediately.  That was one of the best appointments I ever made!  They are always available to answer every question or concern I have and that is very important to me.  I always know they have my back.  I have purchased two subsequent investment properties from Debbie and Amie and we continue to look for more.

Dennis Shedd

Wonderful experience dealing with Jeremiah Secrest!

 He was tireless in his search for the perfect home for us.  We were impressed with his honesty and integrity and overall professionalism.  He is prompt in returning calls or texts and he is always available when you request a showing.  He will definitely be our #1 choice for any and all real estate transactions!

We recently moved from WA.

to Huntington Beach and feel immensely fortunate to have found Beth. From the moment that we met Beth she was extremely helpful in all aspects in the purchase of our new home. Not only is Beth highly knowledgeable, professional and trusted but also a very caring person. We enjoyed working with Beth and would hugely recommend her. Thank you SO much Beth for all of your work and special care. We love our new home and location!!

I was looking at houses for 8 months getting myself acquainted with the Huntington Harbor houses on the market.

I found it time to buckle down and start looking at places to buy, Tim and Karen Took me through 20 houses at least and we worked on finding a house for 5 months I was very picky but then the right house came on the market and I wanted it Tim help me with a strategy on how I should position myself with buying the house and I bought It, I am extremely happy with my new purchase and with Tim and Karan's help.

Tyler Noonan was simply exceptional in every aspect of the experience.

Tom is a devoted to his work!

Excellence in finding that perfect property that you call HOME. Tom goes beyond expectation to make dreams come true. 1 in a 1,000,000,000.

Tom helped us purchase our first home and we couldn't be happier.

Through the entire transaction he guided us through smoothly and helped us understand all the different moving parts from start to finish. When we decide to sell, we will definitely be using Tom as our Realtor. Thanks again Tom!!!

Sylvia helped me find a wonderful home.

I was referred to her by my sister who has worked with Sylvia for years. I was a first time buyer who needed help every step of the way. Sylvia persisted with many offers. She worked with me through a harrowing short sale. Eventually the deal closed. The condo I bought has gone up in value; I am thrilled with the results.

Karen Fruchter-Ross

Don't except any other real estate professional.

Carin is absolutely the best. Extremely professional, extensive experience, and very responsive. Carin has all the information and answers to almost all questions right away. And if she does not know, she will find out quickly. Carin has represented me in two home purchases over 11 years apart. I would highly recommend Carin to anyone interested in purchasing or selling!

Eva is great!

After getting settled in our new home we wanted to take time to write a note to you to thank you for your effort and concern for our making such a major decision in our lives.

When meeting you for the first time Chuck and I felt comfortable and at ease with the suggestions you made to make our home more appealing to prospective buyers. Suggestions were readily accomplished. The flyer you created was beautiful, highlighting the best features of our home. The three Open Houses were scheduled around our activities and convenience (you took extra care of our in house cats so they weren't bothered and didn't escape). The Open Houses went smoothly with features being pointed out to prospective buyers. After being on the market for only 15 days our home was sold. Anticipating looking for our new home, you showed us many houses, all within our price range, the area we were considering, and, of course, the size of the house.  You made youselves available on any day and at different times. After our decision was made, the paper work was completed quickly and efficiently with all of our questions and concerns addressed. We appreciated the timely manner in which you answered phone calls, emails, and text messages. No question we had was insignificant. During the whole process of selling and buying a new home we always felt you had our best interest at heart. Again, we thank you for your concern and we would highly recommend you to other sellers and buyers. Sincerely and fondly, Chuck and Diana Becker

Chuck and Diana Becker

I've known Eva for almost 40 years, and when I recently needed someone to market my parents' home after they moved into a retirement apartment, she was the obvious choice.

She also knew my father, and she recognized the need to be patient and caring in dealing with someone who was moving out of his beloved home of 51 years. She was great, and it all went smoothly. I will definitely use her again. Alan Tate

Walter Alan Tate

My mom and I met Alex at an open house he was hosting in Long Beach.

After about eight months, we finally settled on a beautiful, 2 bedroom condo in Signal Hill. Throughout the entire search, Alex was extremely helpful; he did his research, made sure all our questions were answered, and  demonstrated a great deal of patience. Once our offer was accepted, he ensured the process was as efficient as possible.

Christian Villanueva

I love these guys.

They listen when you tell them what you’re looking for and don’t waste your time showing you anything else. They are so much fun to be around. They treated us like friends and we always enjoyed being with them. Once we found the house we had to have, they negotiated in our favore. I love these guys and can’t imagine ever using anyone else.

Tom and Ile Butler

Sylvia worked tirelessly to sell our 1br condo during a difficult market.

She responded to our every need and treated us like we were part of her family. We referred her to my father and she helped him sell in record time. I look forward to working with her on our next purchase later this year.

"My name is Heidi Jo Helm and I am a resident of Huntington Beach, California.

My sister owned a home in downtown Huntington Beach on 11th Street next door to the Divona family for 28 years. Although I did not know the Divona family well, I always admired them as an all American happy family. In 2017 both my sister and her husband had passed away and I was left to be the Administrator for their Estate. To say the least I was overwhelmed with what needed to be done to prepare their home of 28 years to sell. MaryAnn who lived next door was immediately helpful with providing advice on all the information I needed to get started. She provided names and numbers of contacts that could take care of the repairs and staging of the house. The contacts she provided were unbelievably helpful and reliable. This was not my first time to administer an estate or sell a home but it is by far the smoothest most stress free transition by far. After months of repairs, due to MaryAnn’s help and advice the house was ready to list. Again I was amazed with how well she helped me through every step necessary in an above and beyond professional manor. I can’t possibly say enough about my experience with MaryAnn Divona. She gave 110% of herself and it paid off. Our house basically sold in one day for over the asking price. I will be forever grateful for MaryAnn Divona and all the extra efforts she made for a successful sale." hhelm5 509 11th St, Huntington Beach, CA 92648

Vikki Morrison has been by exclusive real estate agent since 1995 and Tom has been working with Vikki, my wife and me for the past year.

Vikki initially helped me to sell a home in LongBeach in 1995 and then purchase a home in Huntington Beach that same year. Since that time,we have had multiple other real estate transactions that have all been successful. In addition, I have referred quite a number of colleagues and friends to Vikki and they have all been more than satisfied with her professionalism and work. In fact, I think that most of her clientele are past clients and people referred to her by her past clients. There are a number of qualities that separate Vikki Morrison (and now also her partner Tom) from other real estate agents. She is completely honest and trustworthy and when searching for a home to purchase, she will give her honest opinions on the positives and negatives about a home and not just try to make a sale for the commission. When selling a home, she will price the home fairly and goes out of her way to stage the home to make a successful sale. She actually has a warehouse of “staging furniture and house items” that she uses to stage some of her client’s homes for a successful sale. Many people charge tens of thousands of dollars for a proper staging and Vikki actually staged my latest successful home sale and didn’t charge me a penny. There were quite a number of homes at our price range (around $2 million) this summer and most of the other homes were taken off the market, are still languishing for sale or were sold at drastically reduced prices. Vikki (and now Tom as well) just somehow are able to find the buyers and make a successful sale and it’s not surprising that Vikki is one of the most successful residential real estate agents in Orange County history. In summary, Vikki and Tom are completely reliable, successful, trustworthy and a joy to work with and we recommend them with the highest possible enthusiasm and with no reservations what so ever.

Eva is the perfect agent.

My wife and I would like to take the time to express our gratitude and appreciation for Debbie Docherty.

During the course of these transactions, Debbie was constantly fighting for our family and coming up with new solutions to the many problems that continuously plagued us. Debbie is a true professional, and her positive, ‘Can Do Attitude’ reflected greatly upon her. We have recommended Debbie to our closest friends, co-workers, and family.

Jeremiah doesn't just sell your house or help you buy one he develops a relationship with you so you can determine exactly what it is you want to do and then help you do it.

 He is thorough, knowledgedable and persistent.  Great job for us both buying a new place and selling our house.   Finally a real estate agent who is worth what you pay him.

I would never use another real estate agent.

This guy is hands down responsible for getting me my first house and he went WAY out of his way to sell it years later. He is a good business man, a great man in general, and (dare I call him) a new friend. Thanks for all you do buddy!

"Every sale has its hurdles to overcome, especially in the current market, but Debbie worked tirelessly for both parties involved and did everything in her power to make sure everyone was happy and the sale went through smoothly.

I would not hesitate to recommend Debbie to anyone looking for an Agent with integrity and high moral values; she will be the first person I call when I buy my next property."- Honey & James Moncur 

My husband and I recently had a baby and were on the hunt to find a family home and a great Realtor to represent us.

We were so happy we choose Eva! Not only did her years of experience and knowledge of this market help us in buying a home, it helped us understand we had made a secure investment. She was so sincere and generous with us all and my daughter would light up every time she saw her. She really helped us understand the unknown in every part of Huntington Beach. This is a competitive market & Eva knew how to strategically negotiate the terms of our house in a fair and calm manner. We never once felt like we were being taken advantage of with her as our lead communicator. We are incredibly happy with our new home and we closed in record time. Eva prepared all our documents on the spot (weekend nights and all). She was an absolute gem and we recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Her dedication and passion for what she does allows buyers to have the edge needed to be competitive in the marketplace.

Caroline & Matt Kovac

"Denise is amazing!

She lives in the area we wanted to buy which allowed us to get into houses very quickly, sometimes within an hour or two. She responded to texts and emails quickly. We had an offer on a house which we ended up walking away from due to the amount of work in the inspection report and we were able to get our full deposit back without any hassle. Denise had recommendations for inspectors, lenders and other house needs we had, and all her recommendations were professional and had amazing customer service. She found us our forever house and we were able to secure it because of her guidance and support (even with multiple offers). She knows her stuff and always had our best interest at heart!"

Michelle & Ron Pendergast

Sylvia Garrett is the BEST Real Estate Professional in town!

She helped us with locating our first condo a few years back. My husband and I were looking on purchasing a bigger home to start expanding our family so we contacted Sylvia to let her know what our plans were, she immediately scheduled a meeting for us to get together to talk about what our options were. We were really impressed on all the information she had came up with in such a short amount of time and especially with how organized she was. We listed our condo and had our first open house that same weekend! We also had multiple showings everyday throughout the week. Our condo was on the market for a week and a half (which felt like the longest week of our lives.. lol) we received an offer at full asking! She quickly worked to find us a home that met ALL of our desires. She found one that wasn't even on the market yet and immediately scheduled a walk-thru for us & we fell in LOVE with it! The owner at the time still wanted to put the house on the market that weekend after showing it to us and even though they received multiple offers they accepted ours!! They loved how professional Sylvia was and knew that my husband and I would make it into our HOME just like they had. We are still so grateful to Sylvia and her team's help there is no way we would have been able to get into our DREAM HOME without them.

Wendy and Carlos Lopez

Where do I start!

Debbie help me by my first home, and Debbie and Amie help me sell my first home. I knew absolutely nothing about the process and they guided me with kindness and an abundance of knowledge . My first home was beyond my dreams, in was a perfect area for me. Debbie knew better than I did what would work for my lifestyle . She has been working this area for a long time. When I had to relocate and sell my home, it was quick. Debbie and Amie were so helpful and made things go very quickly. I can't say enough good things about this team. I recommend to my friends and two of them have used this great team. I consistently have felt like my best interest was in mind with every transaction working with this team!

Chris Houck

Being a first time home buyer can be stressful but when you have a Realtor like Alex Duarte that has great market experience and is trustworthy that makes all the difference in the world.

I would highly recommend Alex Duarte with First Team Real Estate.

Natalie Castaneda Armando Castaneda

It was a pleasure working with Debbie and Amie in our search for a beachfront property.

Debbie tirelessly worked on our behalf for over a year to ensure we had the opportunity to purchase a suitable property. During escrow, Debbie and Amie successfully overcame all potential obstacles and represented our interests with intelligence and diligence. We were extremely pleased with their knowledge of the market, negotiating skills, exceptional professionalism and high ethical standards. We give Debbie and Amie our highest recommendation without any hesitation.

I really appreciated her being professional and straightforward .

I am so relieved that I used Beth's services when I listed and sold my home.

It is a stressful time for anyone, but she made it so much less stressful, and gave me guidance through the entire process. She was always available, and provided some very successful open house days.

This was the most positive experience I could have imagined.

Eva is a true rock star!!

Dennis/ Kathleen Danskin

We were so pleased to be able to work with Beth McCloskey as we searched for the "perfect home" this past Spring.

She was able to quickly determine what type of home and community would fit our needs and worked diligently to show us many lovely properties. We found Beth to be very patient, professional and extremely ethical. We would enthusiastically recommend her to our friends and family.  

Mike and Barbara. Rancho Santa Margarita

With todays quick changing market conditions I needed a full service marketing expert to represent me in a real estate transaction.

  Carin was just that person, with expertise in all facets of buying or selling a home.  What a positive pleasure to work with her and get the job done. Thanks Ron and Susan, Long Beach  

I can't say enough about Cari.

In my 30+ years in the Real Estate industry I've come across quite a few of the Real Estate professionals but I can honestly say that Cari is one of the most dedicated, hard working, knowledgeable and honest individuals that I've had the pleasure of working with. Her follow through is second to none and will be sending her all of my future business. Thanks Cari!

We LOVE Debbie & Amie!

Friendly, caring, effective, professional... We're repeat customers and whole-heartedly endorse!

Caleb Anderson

The original plan was to list my condo for sale by owner but I am so glad I didn't.

Carin is a savvy real estate professional that knows the game inside and out. She found errors and omissions on the offers from other agents which would have cost me down the line. She found an overcharge for termite inspection that ended up being free. She even negotiated some of the fees so I wouldn't have to pay as much. At meetings she was always well prepared and focused on me, not her smart phone. Her timely communications kept me informed about every milestone as well as developments that might affect my sale. Bottom line, my condo sold for more than I could have imagined because of Carin's market knowledge, persistence and attention to detail. Throughout the process, her actions assured me that I had an agent that was actually working for me, not just for a commission. I am eternally grateful.

My house is GREAT but my Realtor, Eva is a miracle worker!

! Thank you, Eva!!

Danny Salcido

Tom was fantastic!

Buying and selling your home is not easy as challenges always come up. Tom helped us navigate all the hurdles and was creative in his approaches when he needed to be. He was knowledgeable, professional, and hands-on throughout. He was always reachable when we had questions and seemed to have contacts for any work we needed done in buying and selling. Tom really made our whole experience a very positive one. Thanks so much, Tom!

Nam Bui & Noleen Nguyen

Carin, was a great help in finding what we were looking for and helped us every step of the way.

She knew what she was dealing with from both sides and understood from the get go how to handle us and the sellers. After we dealt with all the paperwork, escrow and payments we realized we had a friend in Carin. She took excellent care of everything! 

fredcl38

Overall my experience working with Kin had been an excellent one.

She would go out of her way to help me get my house ready to sell. She helped me find a contractor to remodel the house and helped me staged the house for sale. She coordinated the whole thing without me really having to do much. It  was truly an amazing and seamless process. After I put my house up for sale I got multiple offers and sold the house within a short period of time. It would not be possible without her help. Kin is an experienced, professional, and knowledgeable real estate agent. I was amazed by the nice looking flyers and marketing materials she provided, along with the professional photos of my house. She gave me regular updates throughout the entire process and I always felt very well informed. I definitely thanked her for helping me with the entire selling process. I highly recommend Kin if you need an agent to buy or sell your house.

Don L

A true professional, working with Sylvia is a DREAM!

She is quick to respond to all communication, she has a deep understanding of the market and is able to help clients find the right fit, she is tenacious and skilled in the art of negotiation. I found Sylvia through a family referral and have since referred her to friends and coworkers. I wouldn't work with anyone else!!

Megan Carmichael

John and Chelsea are a warm and engaging couple who show a personal interest in their clients.

They were always quick to update with me with any changes and answered all questions I had, since selling a house was all new to me. They will be highly recommended by me to anyone looking for a realtor to sell a house.

"Not only did First Team find an atypical buyer in five weeks, but also obtained the highest price ever for our tract.

.. They proved who they are and their protfolio is a mirror of what they can do." - Jim Moos

Debbie and Amie were just what we needed to sell and buy our home.

They apply no pressure, and really let us decide all the details. They will help guide you but never tell you how to do anything that should be the clients decision, such as price and terms. They are both kind and compassionate. They will always answer the phone when you call and they were continually working late into the evenings to make things happen. We could not have pick a better agent. Not to mention they got us the highest price for our model home. And it took all of maybe 10 days. Thank you Amie and Debbie!!!

Shane Reilly

Tim was very helpful and professional in all areas of getting the job done.

Selling a home is very stressful but Tim has a calming effect that we all needed when something went wrong. He was always there to show the house and had a number of open houses. Night or day he answered all our calls! Thanks Tim, we really appreciated all that you did. Sincerely, P.Z.

Victor & Patricia Zanoni

Bernadette was extremely helpful to me when I wanted to sell my house in Maryland.

She provided me with pertinent articles about the selling process and websites to help me understand the local market. She referred me to an agent in my city and talked with that agent about my needs. I sold my  house in 3 weeks at a price higher than I had anticipated so I would definitely say Bernadette was a great asset!  - Pat Regan

 "This is our 2ND TIME WORKING WITH DENISE MERHOFF.

Denise is always on top of things and acts very fast with our best interest at heart. We are so confident with Denise and her Team, and we had such a great time as things were working out so nicely (Yes we closed early than scheduled) Denise is one of the best agents that always think of her clients first and would go extra miles to make the deal happen. Her communication skills is top notched and her Transaction Coordinator TIMBRA GOSS is awesome. Thank you Denise and team."

Beth was outstanding in her follow up, always calibrating what I was looking for to what was coming on the market.

When it came to my purchase, she negotiated the best terms for me personally—even on items I thought we would not receive from the sellers. Post close she has continued to follow up and close out to assist me as this was a remote purchase. She is the consummate professional.

This is a letter of recommendation for The Sullivan Team, of First Team Real Estate, who represented my wife and I as our real estate agents,  for both the purchasing of a new home, as well as the sale of our home in Huntington Beach.

Having a career where I am responsible for servicing corporate level customers, as well as engaging in daily high level negotiations where profit and customer satisfaction are at the top of the priority list, you can imagine how high I set the bar for anyone handling my personal investments where my expectaions lie. The Sullivan Team exceeded my expectations. The Sullivan Team not only assisted us in finding our ideal home, but listed and devoted themselves to selling our home in just twenty short days. These two professionals tapped into every resource available through their market network to give our house the exposure we needed for a rapid sale. Buying and selling a home as you know is a not only a major financial undertaking for every individual or family personally, but is one of escalated emotions and added stress to one's life. During our entire real estate experience with The Sullivan Team, my wife and I had comfort of never having to question any compromising of our position, due to the character and integrity of these two individuals. We will definitely choose to have The Sullivan Team represnt us again. Regards, Mark & Maureen Anzivino

Mark & Maureen Anzivino

Professional and patient.

As a first time homebuyer I had a lot of questions. Alex patiently answered all of them. He always made time to see any house I was interested in. His knowledge of the market is spot on. He gave great advice and genuine, honest feedback. He referred me to a lender that got me a great rate and a bigger budget to work with then my previous one. Alex is always looking out for his clients. The thing I appreciated the most was the fact that even though I have found my home and the deal is done, Alex said his help does not stop here. I can always contact him with any questions or concerns I might have in the future. Class act.

The Sullivan Team has worked hard as my real estate agents to sell my home im Buena Park, California.

Their responsibilities as professional realtors proved them to be able agents, hardworking, and talented salespeople. I was quite impressed by the Sullivan Team's ability to sell my home in a very short time; within 2 weeks. Their research was thorough and comprehensive, and most importantly they understand the market. Overall, they are very conscientious and dedicated real estate agents. I certainly believe they have what it takes to be star agents, and I am glad I selected them to sell our home. I strongly recommend them to anyone or any family who is planning to sell their home.

Deciding to purchase another home can be a stressful event and Eva was with us every step of the way.

She provided timely reminders, helpful advice, and guided us with her knowledge. We greatly value Eva and her expertise!

"With the the market in flux and more homes coming on the market, it was important to us to get our home sold so that we could move to  Chicago.

  The end resul is that our home has now closed escrow while others are still on the market with price reductions.  We really appreciated First Team's knowledge and systems.  This ws our first home sale experience and a good one!" -Raymond & Jennifer Chow

Debbie & Amie recently represented me on both the buy and sale side.

Both transactions were closed in under 30 days. They were up for the task and did a phenomenal job. The marketing materials and research on comps led to a quick sale of my property. And they worked with me to find just the right property in Seacliff. I couldn't be happier with my new home. I recommend them very highly.

Doug Graven

Tim Branoff really knows the market in the harbor and in the surrounding areas.

Karen is endlessly patient when driving around town and showing a gazillion houses. We sold and bought with the Branoff Team and couldn't be happier. They are a very professional team and a pleasure to work with.

Listing our property with Eva was the best thing we could have done!

We had a situation which required us to get a price for our house $75K higher than the last comparable sale. The challenge was daunting to say the least. Eva took on the task in a very positive, cheerful & professional manner, implementing a marketing plan that within a few short weeks led to a sale at a price that actually exceeded our goal. She managed the whole process from start to finish masterfully & we couldn't have been more pleased. Eva is a seasoned, talented, real estate professional and we highly recommend her!!

Robert Pritchard

We have had bad experiences in the past but Dan showed professionalism and exceeded our expectations.

I would recommend him to anyone.

Sylvia is knowledgeable, professional and hard working.

She will go to the ends of the earth for her clients! I would give her 10 stars on each category if I could!

Felisa Ihly

First time we met with her, we felt comfortable with her.

She was very welcoming. She took notes of what we were looking for. If we had issues or something we didn't like on the property, you wouldn't see her disappointed. She was very patient and accommodating. She was always smiling. If we ask her for an opinion, she would give one or give us pointers. She was always smiling!

Dr. Alex Flores, DDS

Sylvia Garrett was wonderful to work with in the selling of our condo.

Her communication skills were outstanding and she was always available to assist when we had questions. We would highly recommend Sylvia to family and friends for future real estate transactions.

Kenneth and Shirley Cappell

I have known Sylvia Garrett for over 15 years and she is not only a great friend but she's the best in the business when it comes to real estate.

I have personally used her expertise with my rental properties and I'm about to list a house with her. I have recommended her to dozens of my friends she nails it every time. If you have any real estate needs, it doesn't get any better than Sylvia. Norm O.

She had the  patience that we needed to find our dream home.  It took a while for us to find exactly what we were looking for, but Suzanne never gave up.  Thanks again!" -Scott and Melinda Crawford

Tom and Vikki were both excellent to work with throughout the home buying process.

They guided the transaction through seamlessly and provided great insight and expertise which were invaluable in selecting and closing the property. I would recommend Tom and the team to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home in the Orange County area!

Giancarlo B

From the moment we first met with Tom we felt as ease.

He addressed all our concerns and walked us through the entire process. Tom and his team were extremely responsive and kept us informed as the sale moved along. I would not hesitate to recommend Tom to anyone looking to buy or sell their home in Orange County.

James A Fellenz & Ruth Garcia-Fellenz

I was very pleased to be able to have Alex as my realtor when buying a condominium for my son.

He was very responsive and proactive in researching the market (which is a fast and difficult market in Orange County at this time). He always responded to my inquiries, texts, emails, and phone calls,  and supplied me with the current available units in my price range. He listened to what my son and his roommate wanted in a unit. He is a hard working and dedicated professional and I would recommend him to friends looking for a home. Thank you, Alex!!

My name is Heidi Jo Helm and I am a resident of Huntington Beach, California.

My sister owned a home in downtown Huntington Beach on 11th Street next door to the Divona family for 28 years. Although I did not know the Divona family well, I always admired them as an all American happy family. In 2017 both my sister and her husband had passed away and I was left to be the Administrator for their Estate. To say the least I was overwhelmed with what needed to be done to prepare their home of 28 years to sell. MaryAnn who lived next door was immediately helpful with providing advice on all the information I needed to get started. She provided names and numbers of contacts that could take care of the repairs and staging of the house. The contacts she provided were unbelievably helpful and reliable. This was not my first time to administer an estate or sell a home but it is by far the smoothest most stress free transition by far. After months of repairs, due to MaryAnn’s help and advice the house was ready to list. Again I was amazed with how well she helped me through every step necessary in an above and beyond professional manor. I can’t possibly say enough about my experience with MaryAnn Divona. She gave 110% of herself and it paid off. Our house basically sold in one day for over the asking price. I will be forever grateful for MaryAnn Divona and all the extra efforts she made for a successful sale.L

Heidi Jo Helm

I have known and trusted Eva for 40 years.

I have used her twice now to find renters, and she has been fantastic. Looking forward to using her for a sale one of these days. She has my highest recommendation!

Danny Bui

We worked with Karen and Tim to purchase our first house.

They were both tremendously helpful. We made offers on 4 different properties and entered escrow on two of them before finally closing on our final (and best) choice. Tim did not bat an eye the numerous times we changed our minds. Not only did they both work with us to find the correct home and navigate the seemingly endless process, but educated us along the way. We had a lot of questions and wanted to gain a thorough understanding of the home-buying process, and they gladly answered all of our questions. We couldn't recommend them more to anyone looking for a nice, down to earth, and friendly couple to represent them in their real estate needs.

Tyler Boogar and Michael Richards

We would recommend Beth McCloskey for both buying and selling.

We had an A+ buying experience with Beth and will work with her again in the future!

You are very helpful and willing to go extra to help pple to get the house they wish .

Thank you very much for your dedication. I will contact you if I have any question. Happy Holidays to you /your family. Luc.

I am a Boeing manager who has recently relocated from Huntington Beach, CA to Everett, WA.

The Sullivan Team, of First Team represented us in the sale of our home in Huntington Beach. To organize my thoughts, I am using the Boeing Leadership Attributes to communicate my experience with The Sullivan Team...so please bear with me. Charts the Course: The Sullivan Team were one of two realtor teams which my wife and I interviewed at the beginning of the process. They presented us with a thorough and concise marketing plan which gave my wife and me confidence in their experience in the business and specifically in our neighborhood and community. They provided us with valuable insights into how to best prepare our home for viewing and what areas potential buyers might focus on. The Sullivan Team also helped us formulate a reasonable "going in" positition regarding pricing, and gave us actionable objectives to execute the sale. Sets High Expectations: The Sullivan Team established high expectations "from the get go". They mapped out a marketing strategy which gave our home maximum exposure in the marketplace. There were numerous agent/broker open houses, to expose their peers to the house, and there were many open houses on week-ends to get agents and buyers into the house. The Sullivan Team were always sensitive to our needs in scheduling open house showings- this was especially important since I was splitting my time between Everett and Long Beach during this timeframe. Suffice it to say that lots of people saw the house and a great deal of interest was generated. The quality of the fliers for the house was excellent with quality photos and thorough description of the property. Inspires Others: The inspiration that they passed on was a tremendous level of confidence and enthusiasm. The dynamics of the marketplace during the timeframe we had our home on the market were uncertain. Listings tended to be on the market much longer than in recent years and there was a distinct downward pressure on prices. Despite this, The Sullivan Team kept bringing in interested buyers and agents, and developing potential offers. Finds a Way: As I mentioned above, the dynamics of the marketplace pointed to listings being on the market longer than in recent times and downward pressure on price. And while The Sullivan Team were successful in generating a viable buyer within  weeks of the house going on the market, some extenuating circumstances beyond anyone's control caused that deal to fall through. The Sullivan Team recommended adjusting our sale price to revive interest as the market continued to cool and we were able to arrive at a pricing stragegy which was still within our acceptable range. This pricing action was a catalyst to the final sale of the house. Live the Boeing Values: Because of the relationship of The Sullivan Team through their affiliation with Boeing Relocation and the relocation management company retained by Boeing, the ethics and business conduct exhibited were right in line with the Boeing values. The Sullian Team absolutely gained our trust and respect; they ensured integrity in all aspects of our home sale. They did whatever was required to gain maximum exposure of the property and were focused on getting the most value for us from the property. They are really fine people and raise the bar on what we now expect from the realtors in the future. Deliver Results: The Sullivan Team delivered results for us beginning with our first meeting. Their operational skills, marketing expertise and hard work in exposing our property to a wide spectrum of brokers, agents and individuals helped to generate a great deal of interest in our home. We had a quicker sale than other homes in our area and, I believe, also received a better return. Their understanding of our personal situation helped make the final decision making clearer for us, and their support and friendship was an added outgrowth of our professional relationship. The sale of one's home, in our case where our children grew up and became young adults, was a difficult transition- but as a result of The Sullivan Team's professionalism, integrity and commitment, we were able to maximize our return on our investment. The result of our relationship with The Sullivan Team meant we were able to relocate to a beautiful home in the Puget Sound region of Washington, a home we hope to spend many happy years in. I hope that this (rather lengthy) letter of recommendation has been useful to you. I sincerely believe that The Sullivan Team were the best agents with whom we could have done business. Their professionalism, level of energy and persistent optimism saw us through a difficult life transition and resulted in what we believe is the best financial outcome we could have expected. I hope you also will choose The Sullivan Team to represent you in your home sale. I believe you will be just as happy with the outcome. Sincerely, Dick Walker The Boeing Company Everett, Washington

My wife and I have bought and sold a number of houses over the years and worked with MANY real estate agents.

Our experience with Debbie and Amie top our list by far! They were personal, easy-going , thorough, hard-working and extremely dedicated to helping us not only buy our house two years ago but sell it when we relocated out of state this year. Really, we can’t recommend them enough!

Dear Carin, Well the waiting is finally over!

I want to thank you so very much for your time and effort in completing the HAFA sale. You put your heart and soul into getting this sale finalized and without your diligent effort and swift follow up with BofA we would most likely have had a foreclosure on record. Most of all we appreciate your special interest and swift handling of the sale from beginning to end. You had buyers in line with offers from day one and when one offer fell through you immediately followed up with another solid offer. We would highly recommend any seller/buyer to feel fortunate to have you as their Agent. I look forward to seeing you so we can finally celebrate with lunch. You my Dear, deserve it and then some. Most gratefully, Beverlee Manis

Kin Ly is an excellent, experienced realtor.

We are very satisfied with the way she expertly handled the sale of our house. She was professional , skilled and courteous, and was patient with our questions and concerns. She was dependable in her ongoing updates and communication, and she was  aggressive on our behalf throughout the various steps of our sale. She even gave us some handy categorized folders for an organized storage of all our paperwork. Also, her multilingual ability was very beneficial and important in the sale of our Garden Grove home. Kin has an exceptional blend of positive traits. We are fortunate and thankful that God led us to her, and highly recommend her superb services! Keep up the good work, Kin!

Tim and Terri M

Carin was a pleasure to work with!

She was extremely knowledgeable and helped us through every step of the stressful home buying process! As first time homebuyers, we were a little unfamiliar with all that was involved and she was right there to answer all of our questions and lead us the right way. She was also very patient and did not push us into anything we weren't comfortable with. Overall Carin made this process a pleasant and smooth one!!! Thank you Carin!

I met Jeremiah through a mutual friend as I was getting nowhere with my previous Realtor.

My friend described Jeremiah as a not only an amazing Realtor, an even better person. As a Realtor he is honest and is driven by finding the right home for the right person. He is an absolute hustler, great communicator and is someone with incredible integrity and character. He returns calls within 24 hours, has incredible work ethic and goes above and beyond the call of a duty when compared to other Realtors. Because of Jeremiah, I spent last holiday in my new condo. In fact, my first ever condo. As you can imagine the initial process is overwhelming. However, Jeremiah helped me every step of the way and I can honestly say the process went incredibly smooth to the point of Jeremiah providing me with names and numbers of Interior Designers, Painters, Hard Wood Floor companies etc. . It was a huge help to say the least!  Additionally, my lender at Sandstone Financial communicated to me how impressed she was with Jeremiah as he was so buttoned up. Not only do I call Jeremiah “My Realtor,” I now call him “My friend.”  

Pete Ferrer

Greg provided us with great local knowledge of the Orange County area and was very honest and upfront with his recommendations.

He was extremely responsive to requests and helped us move quickly to buy our house. We would highly recommend Greg and plan to work with him on future real estate  transactions. Fantastic overall experience.

As first time buyers, the process can definitely be intimidating but Denise stepped in and walked us through every step of the process.

We felt safe with her and she was on top of negotiating items in our favor that we did not think of originally. She was great about getting back to us ASAP and updating us every step of the way. I would recommend Denise to anyone and can't thank her enough for her help in securing our first home

"It was a pleasure working with Debbie and Amie in our search for a beachfront property.

Debbie tirelessly worked on our behalf for over a year to ensure we had the opportunity to purchase a suitable property. During escrow, Debbie and Amie successfully overcame all potential obstacles and represented our interests with intelligence and diligence. We were extremely pleased with their knowledge of the market, negotiating skills, exceptional professionalism and high ethical standards. We give Debbie and Amie our highest recommendation without any hesitation."- Tino & Martha Bernadett

Gwen Miller is very genuine, and she is honest with the data to back up her numbers.

She is extremely responsive and personable - always got back to me within a couple hours or shorter. She accompanied each showing and took care of my dog, in order for me to keep the dog in the house during showings. She kept me informed at each point, and her negotiation skills were great. She knew when to wait it out, and when to move on an offer or an interested party. I have recommended her to all my neighbors, and have told friends how great she was to work with - actually the entire team was a top notch operation, Tuyet was professional and detailed in all our conversations. I can without a doubt say, Gwen Miller put together a wonderful group of professionals - the handy man, the plumber, the escrow company, and she worked with the buyers and their agent very well - no problems at all. I could not be happier!! Adele Kelso

We met Chris and Debbie while checking out open houses in the Huntington Beach area.

We had our heart set on a certain area - granted it was the only HB neighborhood we were familiar with - that was probably out of our budget for the square footage we wanted and extremely limited on inventory. We  had met numerous agents during the house hunting process and had asked all of them for other neighborhood recommendations. Not only did Chris make recommendations, but he offered to drive us around the HB neighborhood he had grown up in. He was extremely knowledgeable on the area and the builders for each type of home there was. It was in Chris’ childhood neighborhood that we found our forever home in. Thank you to the Rose Team for finding the home that literally checked off all the boxes on our list and getting it within our budget! You’re the best! We could not be happier with our purchase!

Allen Chu and Vivian Lu

Tom helped us with the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home.

We are so lucky to have found Tom. He is NOT the typical annoying salesman. Tom always presented all the information we needed and allowed us to make our own decisions. He guided us through every step of the way and made us feel comfortable and rested at stressful times. He understood us and always put our family needs first. Our children and dog loves seeing Tom too. His professionalism is greatly appreciated; on time for all showings, prompt responses, available when needed and treated us like his one and only customer. Plus, he sold our home in less than one month - made a beautiful top notch brochure. Above all, he is most generous in giving back. Thank you so much for finding out dream home!

Gareth and Van Evans

It’s been a couple weeks since we closed escrow on old house and new house and it’s given me time to reflect on all you did to make the transaction happen for us.

You are an amazing realtor (and person!) and I can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done. I truly feel like you went above and beyond to expertly guide us through this life-changing decision. You were completely in tune with our desires and worked tirelessly to make them happen for us. You were completely invested in our dreams and committed to making them happen. Through it all, you never compromised your professionalism and high ethical standards. I truly respect you and recommend you as a realtor without hesitation. Thank you so much.

Darolyn Hamada

Eva communicated and followed through on everything she said.

She went above and beyond in every aspect throughout the whole process. She made the sale from beginning to end as smooth as we could ever ask for. If we ever sold or bought another home, there is no question of who we would choose as our realtor. Thanks Eva!!

Andy/Maria Reyes

Over the years I had noticed that Debbie and Amie had made some high end sales in my community so they were my choice to sell my home in Huntington Beach.

As my home selling experience unfolded I was delighted that I was working with people that truly worked with me to make the sale happen. This was my first home sale and I knew nothing about remodeling and working with contractors but they helped me get my 1980s motif upgraded to 2016 for an extremely reasonable cost. I always felt that they had my best interest in mind and Debbie and Amie worked hard to make sure that I got the best sale for my investment. I was never rushed and I was always listened to, no matter how trivial my concerns were. I have complete trust in the professionalism and integrity that I saw in Debbie and Amie and I'll definitely be recommending them to family and friends.

Ted Halpin

Eva is special and she mad my boys and I feel the same.

She worked hard in getting our home; it was literally a miracle! God handpicked her to help us and He came through! She was easy to talk to and be around. She got back to me right away anytime I had a question. The first time I was at my house without her, it felt like SHE was supposed to be there with me! Eva is like family to us now. I will definitely be referring her to anyone that asks if I know a good realtor. Thank you for everything, Eva!!! Hugs! We miss you.

Josh was great to work with.

Eva was referred by a family member who had a great experience with Eva and her team.

Our story was that we owned a condo but really longed for a house, not sure with the market the way it is inventory was low and we were not sure we could pull it off...until we me Eva. After Eva and her team staged our condo it was so beautiful, and inviting a great offer came almost too quickly. Eva made showing the condo as non disruptive for our kids and pets as we could hope for. She hosted 2 open houses back to back, and made beautiful descriptive flyers. Our condo really stood out on the MLS thanks to tons of pictures and a well worded description. There were 3 other similar units available but ours flew off the market and into escrow while the others sat. Selling and buying simultaneously should feel like a delicate, tricky task. Eva is in touch constantly with lenders, escrow, home inspectors and the other agent while reporting back to you during every step, it didn't seem tricky at all. Eva made time to look at houses, gave us the push we needed to keep our heads up when it seemed we weren't going to find our new house before escrow needed to close on the condo. We did find our house perfect for us in a great location. One example of how superior Eva's service is when escrow opened and we continued on a previously planned vacation. When our lender found they were missing some important paperwork, we called Eva from Mexico and she sprang into action. Eva dropped what she was doing, drove to our home found the paperwork, got it to the lender so we could move forward oh and made sure our dogs had plenty of food and water. Another example is how Eva got our 13 year old Boy to keep his room perfect always after he loved how she staged it, he has been keeping it up ever since. Selling and buying is such a huge life event and we are so fortunate that we went with our instincts and our trusted Eva to see us through this transaction . Bottom line is ...We sold at the End of Summer when the prices were slumping, found a house we loved when inventory was low and can't imagine doing all of that with any other agent. Thank you Eva and First Team for making it happen.

Steve/ Sandra Saitman

We met Tim at an open house while looking for a house in Huntington Beach.

We told him what we were looking for and after lot's of searching he found us the perfect house by knocking on doors in the neighborhood.Tim is super mellow which is a good trait for your Realtor to have while going  through the often stressful process of making an offer, negotiating a price and generating documents leading to closing.Tim knew exactly what we were looking for and found us our house before it came on the market.Tim was extremely diligent, organized and keep us fully informed during the home buying process.If we find ourselves looking for another house in Huntington Beach in the future Tim will be the first person we call.

Kyle Powers

It's fair to say that we are thankful every day that we have Helen as our realtor.

When we began looking for a home in earnest about 8 years ago, she was very helpful in not only answering our questions, but making sure we were asking the right ones. We looked at many homes, but when we found the one that we really wanted, she worked very hard for us to ensure we had a shot at it. She was tireless in her diligence, and eventually we got it!  If not for her, we would not be in our dream house today.And during the closing process she was there holding our hand throughout, ensuring that everything was PERFECT so as not to have any bumps in the road.  We are still in this house and though we started as a business relationship, consider Helen a friend. Highly recommend her to anyone seriously looking for a home.

Recently we chose Eva for the selling & buying of our home.

We have experienced many moves and she is the best Realtor we have ever had! Her knowledge and professionalism are superior. We always had a quick response from Eva to all of our calls. Our home also sold quickly and we were more then pleased with the selling price. She helped us find our new home in SeaCliff on the Greens, where we have dreamed of living for a long time. We are so thankful for her making this a wonderful move. We highly recommend Eva to anyone buying or selling a home!

I have been represented by The Sullivan Team on the sale and purchase of two homes.

One in 2003 and again this year. The Sullivan Team has exceeded all expectations for real estate brokers. My first home, which I sold in 2003, sold in two days at the price I expected with numerous backup offers. The team seamlessly executed the sale of my home and the purchase of my new home that year. This year, The Sullivan Team sold my home in the Summerlane area of Huntington Beach in record time to an amazing buyer. They also went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we were able to meet the move out deadline. The sale price was excellent and again my home sold in record time, much sooner than comparable homes in the master planned community. They also helped me to find the exact home I was looking for in the Brightwater community of Huntington Beach. The home was and is in superb, like new condition and the purchase was again seamless and I purchased at a price well below what I expected in a highly desirable area. The Sullivan Team is what I would define as the model of the ideal real estate brokers. They are honest, to the point, listen to a clients needs, and will always be one step ahead of what a client needs. In short, they listen and anticipate far ahead and clearly listen to a clients needs. I highly recommend The Sullivan Team as the most excellent brokers I have ever worked with. First Team is very lucky indeed to have the perfect model of honest, fair and superb brokers. Sarie Morrell

Selecting Cecilia Tumalan as my Real Estate Agent was the best decision I made after interviewing other agents. She listed my home, advertised on the internet, Facebook, newspaper, and YouTube making a special video of my house. She did open house on weekends. Cecilia also helped me to find my replacing property. She was always available even at night time, she took care of us from beginning to end answering all my questions with a great attitude. I highly recommend Cecilia to my family and friends.

Gwen did everything in her power to sell my house.

She was a miracle worker.

I highly recommend our realtor, Jeremiah Secrest.

He recently sold a home for me in Huntington Beach that had been in our family for nearly 50 years. Not only is Jeremiah pleasant to work with, but he sold the home quickly, efficiently, and at a good price. I feel he has the utmost integrity and would recommend him to anyone. If you have a home to sell, or you are looking to buy, he knows the market. 

Lynda Myles

Bernadette was extremely helpful to me when I wanted to sell my house in Maryland.

She provided me with pertinent articles about the selling process and websites to help me understand the local market. She referred me to an agent in my city and talked with that agent about my needs. I sold my house in 3 weeks at a price higher than I had anticipated so I would definitely say Bernadette was a great asset! - Pat Regan”

The Branoffs are amazing!

I have known Karen for many years and she brings expertise, efficiency and determination to everything she does. Tim has built his wonderful reputation with door-to-door involvement and his winning personality. First Team is lucky to have Team Branoff!

Tracey Dev

We were very confident in Gwen's experience and professional attitude.

She responds quickly to questions, explains details and situations, listens to concerns, offers help and suggestions and is patient and understanding through the process. We trusted her advice and knew we were in good hands. Her associates were equally professional especially Coast Cities Escrow.

Mary Ann Divona flawlessly handled a previous rental-property listing ($2+million) for us in Seal Beach.

So, naturally I wanted her to have the listing of our residence in Rancho Palos Verdes. Though the property was one of the nicest in RPV, it had a limited customer base due to its unique architecture, multi-levels and stairways. Through the extensive marketing, and tireless efforts of Mary Ann, we sold our property at a price we were more than pleased with. I would like to note, that throughout the listing and escrow process, Mary Ann handled every problem that arose with incredible poise and effectiveness. As we now live in Washington state, we could not be there to make sure that the property always looked nice for viewing appointments and open houses. Mary Ann personally kept the home immaculate, inside and out, which was truly incredible. We truly believe that we could not have possibly had a better agent to represent our property than Mary Ann. Our best wishes and continued success go to her. Sincerely, Frank and Jenny Tomich

Frank and Jennifer Tomich

Tim is the most personable, helpful person I have come across.

He goes out of his way to find out exactly what you're looking for and making sure he finds the perfect fit for you. I consider him a great friend and would highly recommend his services!!

Vicki Resch

Beth is wonderful!

We were in a real time crunch to find a house and Beth jumped in with both feet! She made herself available to us pretty much non-stop and held our hands through a trying process. I would highly recommend Beth for your home buying needs!!

My husband and I met Jeremiah in 2011 when we first began looking for our first home.

It was a very exciting time for us considering we were about to be married, but housing prices were so low that it started to become very competitive for us. Jeremiah took us looking for homes every weekend we could. He was so patient with us, always answering every little question we had, and always being so honest about everything. It was a long journey, but we bought our first condo in 2012 right after we got married and we got it at an amazing price. 9 months later the market really started to pick up, and we knew we had to make a profit on our little condo and upgrade to something bigger. We called Jeremiah and he was on it immediately. He did an amazing job selling our first home, and we were able to put our profit down on a much bigger town home in the same city.When it comes down to it, Jeremiah is so personal, professional, respectful, the list goes on. He is the perfect real estate agent. We've recommended him to our family, and members of our family have bought/sold their homes through Jeremiah. He is the nicest guy, and we're so happy we can say he is truly our friend. We love you J!!!

Vanessa Graves

It was my best decision I made to sell my home.

Eva was extremely professional and understood my neighborhood in pricing my home. She is experienced and works very hard for her client. I feel Eva delivered a true client service that is rare to find today. Thank you Eva

Gregory/Carrie Doumanian

Jeremiah from the beginning was professional and friendly which was a big plus in our books!

Not only is he familiar with the surrounding Costa Mesa area but he is aware of the surrounding cities therefore was able to guide us through what we were looking for. His communication is always prompt and he answers all our questions within a timely manner. It is great to know that there are agents out there like Jeremiah that are looking out for their client's best interests! He is willing to go the extra mile when it comes to the wow factor of not only helping us purchase but also selling. Thanks J!

Trung Le & Huong mai Tran

Greg took superb care of us.

He sold our home for top dollar, which was our most important criteria as we looked to upgrade. He also helped us secure an excellent deal on our dream home. He was in constant communication with us and helped orchestrate both transactions with our best interest in mind. He's a master communicator and negotiator and is willing to put in the work so that you don't just get a good deal, you get the best deal! He truly cares about his clients and knows the business. If any of my friends and family tell me they are planning to buy or sell, I'll insist they call Greg.

Luis B.

The whole process of finding a place and moving after being in one spot for 22 years was pretty stressful, but exciting, too.

Many thanks to Sylvia, our real estate wizard/Jedi master, who guided us to a safe landing.Bob and Maria D.

Jeremiah helped us purchase and sell our house during a difficult time of very low inventory within a very short window in time.

He did an amazing job listening to our wants vs needs when identifying our new home and thankfully not wasting our time visiting multiple homes that were clearly not the right fit. We are very happy with the results of his work and would recommend  him to anyone. 

Scott Cleymer

Dan was incredible - I would recommend him highly!

Trying to find a honest real estate agent who you can trust is like trying to find a trust worthy used car salesman.

We didn't think they existed! Fortunately my husband and I were lucky enough to find Jeremiah. From our first meeting we knew he wasn't full of BS or blowing smoke up our butts to get our business. He pointed out potential issues and opened up his rolodex of industry experts through our home buying process to put us at ease.

Debbie P.

My family and I were looking to make the jump to owning a property but we're reluctant due to prices and areas we'd be able to afford.

Elaine did research and looked at areas that fit our budget and we're good for a family of 2 young children. The amount of houses we found available and that fit our needs and desires was amazing. We would never have found them on our own. She accompanied usb to these houses and gave us her thoughts as well which is rare I think. She didn't force us into a purchase and clearly wasn't in it for the higher sale price. She genuinely wanted us to find a house we loved with a budget of what we felt comfortable with. After closing on our house in under 20 days and having all the minor repairs fixed (there were no major repairs) we realize how lucky we were to have a realtor as professional, caring and respectful as Elaine. We are truly blessed to have found her and would recommend her to anyone that says they are looking into buying.

Aaron Shuck

Your help and support made this process so much easier.

Thank you for helping us find someplace that went above and beyond our expectations! Sherly and Nathan, Bellflower

Tom has been extremely helpful in the property buying process.

He learned about my situation, helped me discover suitable options, and has played a central role in my property ownership journey. Tom is also an extremely effective communicator which should comfort any buyer who isn't a professional in the field of real estate. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and has exceeded my expectations as a real estate agent.

Debbie and Amie were great.

Had endless open houses for our townhome that took a while to sell. They never gave up hope. Very professional.

Maddy Dowler

Tim has very good communication skills, and is very knowledgeable and on time with appointments.

Carin is the best Realtor in Orange County, hands down.

She was AMAZING every step of the way. We love Carin and would recommend her to anyone. My wife and I have worked with her on three different transactions. We wouldn't even think of contacting anyone else.

Cirving008

Working with Cari has exceeded any of my expectations!

She is always enthusiastic and helpful. We looked at over 50 homes and Cari had no problem meeting with me multiple times during the week at my convenience. She really makes her clients a priority and cares about them. She put a lot of effort into finding us the perfect house that met all of our requirements and didn't just let us settle for less. She truly wants the best for her clients and can help you find that dream home. I will continue to use Cari and have recommended her to multiple friends and family.

..we have used Don for 5 separate transactions and I have recommended him to friends and family. Don has proven himself to be a real estate agent worthy of our trust. I would not consider using any one else..."

Debbe did an awesome job finding us our property, negotiating and following through even after closing.

I would definitely use y'all again and recommend to friends.

Maddy & Paul Dowler

Eva, definitely went the extra mile.

The original house didn't work out for us, but she showed 4 more houses the same evening. Then she found the perfect house for us. No Nonsense, just great service. she followed up when she said she would, kept us in the loop the entire way and made the process very stress free. She's an excellent agent, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home. Frankie & Dave

She truly makes my home selling experience very pleasant and so easy! Kin would go the extra mile to make everything happen. I would recommend to my friends or work with her if I am in the market again. Thank you Kin!

Angela C

I have bought and sold about one dozen homes in my lifetime and Carin is by far the best agent I have ever been associated with.

She has superb knowledge, is great at investigating, has a can-do attitude, is a superb tactician, and just a pleasant professional person to represent me in my business and personal dealings.

Carin has been my realtor for the past 10 years.

When I was looking to buy my first home in 2003 I worked with several real estate agents, but none of them really listened to me, to understand what type of property I could call home. I was referred to Carin through one of my coworkers and came to find out she had also worked with several others in my company. Carin takes the time to get to know you. She'll prescreen all the properties and won't push you into anything. This was exactly what I needed for my first time home purchase. When I outgrew my Condo, she was there to help me purchase the house I now live in 7 years after my initial purchase. She spent quite a bit of time with me on both searches and knew, as she did the first time, which homes I would love. Neither time was an easy process (I'm particularly and she stood by me for my multi-month search). Even when I haven't been on the house hunt, if I've ever had a real estate related question, she's always helped me out. She knows the power of keeping your customers happy, and happy customers are repeat customers and happy customers refer. I recently recommended her to my little sister, and she just closed her first property with her. To be honest, there is none better in Southern California.

Sylvia was referred to me by a trusted friend.

I was impressed at our very first meeting; she arrived prepared and on time. My husband had just passed away and I was not functioning at my best. Sylvia truly went the extra mile and helped me in so many ways. She included my oldest son in much of the process and arranged with a handyman & gardener to do some needed work. She answered all my calls promptly and worked around the inconvenience of me being out of town frequently during the closing paperwork. She worked hard to get a fair price for my home. I highly recommend her.

Jackie Peters

My wife and I met Beth at an open house and asked her about flood zones in Huntington Beach.

  We were impressed when Beth went to City Hall Planning the very next day and forwarded to us FEMA flood zone information and photos of the wall map that delineated where flood insurance is required.  Her quick response, clear communication and warm personality won us over. We contracted with Beth to sell our home and it went very smooth. She’s always accessible, diligent with all the details and has the right disposition to effectively deal with any buyer/seller potential issues before they become a big problem. We’ll continue to strongly recommend Beth to our friends and family in the future.

D. Mu - Huntington Beach

Carin, we really appreciate all that you have done to help us purchase our first home.

You went beyond the call of duty. I feel like we've become friends! Thank you! Stacy and Brad, Huntington Beach  

Dan listed and sold our home in the time needed and helped us find our new dream home.

All without pressure or hassle and completed with professionalism. I would highly recommend him

Amazing, amazing, amazing!

Jeremiah is a professional in every sense of the word.

He knows the market & he listens closely to the key aspects of the home his clients are looking for - both in what we say & in how we react to properties we visit. He targeted properties extremely well. I was new to the area & felt very secure with his advice of the various locations i was considering while also introducing me to new areas. Jeremiah gained my trust very quickly & became an excellent resource & advisor. His ability to deal with selling agents while I went back & forth on my decision helped keep my options open which resulted in me getting the home that was the best fit for me. I highly recommend working with Jeremiah. You won't be disappointed. He is definitely the best of the best & goes the extra mile for his clients!

Tim Branoff really knows the market in the harbor and in the surrounding areas.

Karen is endlessly patient when driving around town and showing a gazillion houses. We sold and bought with the Branoff Team and couldn't be happier. They are a very professional team and a pleasure to work with.

Dixie was very conscientious in negotiations and promoting the sale.

Utilized numerous open house events and marketing until we got an offer. Following a problem with the buyer's loan approval, Dixie was able to negotiate with the Buyer to agree to a 2nd Note to keep the deal alive. We had a hard drop dead close date we needed to make in order to transfer our Prop 13 tax base to our new residence and Dixie successfully negotiated for the closing with 3 days to spare!

"I was recently represented by Debbie Docherty in the sale and purchase of a home in Huntington Beach.

I was extremely pleased with Debbie's knowledge of the market and her professionalism. She was diligent and able to close the sale on my home for a good price. Additionally, Debbie represented me in the purchase of my new home. She worked equally hard to get me the price I wanted to pay for my new home. I would highly recommend Debbie Docherty and would have her represent me in future real estate purchases or sales."- GH

Dan is extremely knowledgeable about the HB market and helped us find what we were looking for.

We priced our home competitively and got multiple offers (agreeing to an offer over asking price). He answered all of our questions along the way and kept us in the loop on any activities that were occurring during the escrow process. I'd recommend Dan to friends and family.

Just wanted to thank you again for all your hard work in finding and assisting me in buying my first townhouse!

It takes many different real estate professionals working together to acquire real estate in Orange County. Without your constant monitoring of each professional's progress, I truely believe I would not own my townhouse today. It was extremely easy to work with you as you were always there. I knew the house search was being taken care of as you constantly updated me on the progress through both emails and voicemails. I appreciate your dedication. Thank you so much for your hard work.

Beth McCloskey and her associates are outstanding as realtors.

Beth truly went the extra mile in every aspect of my realty transaction. She is professional, honest, courteous and has unsurpassed knowledge in the realty field. I would definitely recommend McCloskey & Co to family, friends and anyone in search of their dream home.

From beginning to end, Matt was extremely professional in helping me get into my new home.

He always wore suits and looked presentable and professional. He always kept communication professional and was very quick to respond at any hour of any day, which was extremely comforting to me to know that he was there to answer questions whenever I needed him. Being a first time buyer, I knew nothing about the process, but Matt made me feel comfortable and always took time to explain everything in detail and never made me feel rushed or pressured into anything. Matt got me in to see places before the houses were even on the market, and I believe that is the reason that I was able to get this house that he helped me close on. I would recommend Matt to anyone who wants to buy or sell a home!

Carin did an amazing job for us, she guided us though the process of selling 2 homes and buying our new home/ Thee were so many moving pieces and she mastered them and made sure none o the pieces were dropped.

I had a truly exceptional experience working with Amie Peterson and Debbie Docherty.

I needed to sell the primary residence of my aging and frail widower client rather quickly in order to have sufficient funds for his 24/7 care needs. Amie and Debbie took over the process from the minute I signed the listing agreement. They worked so hard week-after-week, holding broker previews and public open houses...even during the downpours of our winter El Nino! They got an all-cash offer within 4 months of listing with escrow planned for only 17 days...that actually closed in only 10 days! I am very impressed with the level of professionalism this duo exhibits. I can highly recommend them and hope to be able to use their services again.

My wife and I met Tom while looking at one of his listings.

We noticed immediately his sincerity and non pressure approach. At that time we hadn't committed to an agent and we were looking. After meeting several agents, what won us over about Tom amongst many things was his balanced approach. He knew just the right amount of attention to give us. We were'nt 100% ready to buy yet, however we needed to get the process moving. I was waiting on a job change/promotion and he would check in on us from time to time but never too much. When I finally received a promotion he called me to congradulate my family and I then kicked into action. My wife and I were impressed when we looked him up and noticed the type of clients as well as listings he had! What's more is that he never treated us as any less important. It felt as if he only worked for us even though that wasn't the case. Tom didn't just help us with purchasing a home, he helped us with references for a loan and credit repair. I could keep on going but suffice it to say, If you're looking for an agent, whether you need to buy or sale, no matter if you can afford a beach house or a modest dwelling and you want an agent for life....

I was needing to sell my parents' house just a couple of weeks after my mother had passed away.

It was incredibly daunting and heartbreaking, and I needed help. Everyone in the neighborhood knew Eva Riddle, and they all recommended her with enthusiasm. After one phone call, I immediately understood why. I was heartened to know that she had come around and gotten to know my parents over the years. She talked me through all the documentation and explained the entire process, understanding that I was a real estate novice. When it was time to pack up the last of my parents' things and get the home ready to sell, I was a an emotional wreck. Eva was at the house to help me EVERY SINGLE DAY. She rolled up her sleeves, and said "It's going to be all right. Give me a job. What can I do today?" Every time I saw her or spoke to her on the phone, she was positive and enthusiastic. She helped me organize everything that was still in the house, helped me gather all my parents' collectibles, and even ordered dumpsters for everything that needed to be thrown away. This was a very difficult job that took several days, and she was right there helping me the whole time. She contacted a fantastic estate sale company and arranged for them to hold an estate sale event at the house for everything that remained. The actual sale of the house could not have gone smoother. She listed the house at a price that was bound to get a lot of attention, we got a wonderful bid for the house, and we closed in only ten days!!!! Eva has also called since then, just to see how I'm doing. She's not just a quality realtor, she's a quality person! Don't even think twice -- call Eva to help you sell your home! You'll be very glad you did!!!

Tim Branoff is a hard working guy that goes way beyond the normal broker client relationship to make sure his clients, myself included are satisfied with the service he has to offer.

If he cant handle something he will get someone out there that can get it done immediately. He is always a happy guy which myself and a lot of other brokers could learn from. It makes for a pleasant experience.

Tim sold me my home in Huntington Beach, CA 20 years ago.

Since then he has always stayed in touch. Tim is one of the hardest working guys I know. He sold that HB home for us 2.5 years ago. He was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and made the whole experience enjoyable. Honestly, as one knows selling a home is stressful but Tim made it a piece of cake!
