Do I need a "neighborhood specialist"?

Chances are the NS in your neighborhood has a long track-record that gets her/him listings without much additional effort. They have probably been there for decades. Because they are so well known, they may no longer need to get you the highest price or give above-and-beyond service to continue getting business and referrals. In those cases, results could end up lacking. Knowing a neighborhood's street names and home models by memory, in our opinion, won't help an agent sell a house for the highest price. Sometimes decades-old experience can be just that: old and outdated. No matter who you work with, don't settle for crooked cell phone photos of messy rooms, poor descriptions full of Fair Housing violations, no calls or meetings after business hours, or worse, an agent who doesn't know how to efficiently use current technology. In today's fast-paced, cloud-based, and brutally competitive housing market, service like that is not good enough. Work with a brand dedicated to you and to breaking records with each and every sale.


Will I get better service from a large team?

Not always. Much of the time it goes like this: You sign with a large team and then get stuck working with brand new, inexperienced agents, assistants and staff. Their high fees probably don't go toward getting you anything extra, but curiously they often seem to sustain the team's glam image. Ever seen the Netflix shows Selling Sunset or Selling the OC? They are certainly binge-worthy, but you don't want any of that drama inside your real estate deal. We have a hands-on, luxury approach without the ego or gouging fee. And every deal is crafted and closed, top to bottom, by our principal agent. He tours his clients, prepares each listing, and negotiates every detail of every transaction. 


Will a celebrity agent sell my home faster and for more money?

You've heard it before. They have this secret pool of buyers that no one else has access to, right? Well, if they already had even a single buyer for your home, they wouldn't need to list it. Think about it this way: That famous agent can still sell your home even if it's listed with us. In fact, since dual agency is uncommon and very unpopular, you probably shouldn't list with the agent you believe has buyers for your home. Buyers want their own agents, just like a seller wants loyal, undivided representation. We know exactly which agents to network with, and we will put your home on their radars immediately. In fact, we give them an incentive to sell our listings over their own. Bottom line, your home will be boldly exposed to the same fancy brokerages, big-name agents, and buyers (including the "secret ones"), without any backroom dealing or the fog of dual agency. Oh, and about the discount they said they would give you if they double-end your sale: Our regular fees would already crush whatever tiny discounts the big guys could offer.

We have sold and purchased homes with Andrew, and each time he exceeded our expectations. His expertise and level of service are unparalleled, and we are beyond blessed that every time we had a high goal, Andrew rose to the occasion and made it happen with ease. Because we took Andrew's advice, our sale price was so high for our model, it couldn't be matched for years, and he also got us our new home for...

No one could have done a better job preparing my home for sale. Andrew's presentation and marketing were far above that of other listings in the area. The house looked so good, I almost decided not to sell it! In just a few days, Andrew got me multiple offers over the list price, and he ultimately helped me select the right one, which was a record-breaking price and most importantly from a buyer who perf...

Andrew orchestrated nothing short of a miracle, and we have our dream home now because of him. He truly leads, and that gave us the confidence to act boldly when we found "the one." His skill and creative negotiating made such an impact with the listing agent that we beat multiple offers, all higher in price than ours. We believe that no other agent would or could have represented us so effectively at ev...

Andrew was excellent! His customer service was outstanding. Our family had a unique situation while purchasing, and Andrew worked diligently to help make the process as easy as possible. He is very trustworthy and helped put us at ease with making such a large purchase. His knowledge of the Orange County area gave our family a few additional options we may not have considered before. His patience was als...

Could not be happier! If Andrew had not guided us, we would not have gotten our house. The seller ended up with 2 other offers, one of which they took as a backup thousands of dollars over ours. He was there every single step of the way, was extremely fast in responding to emails, and answered every question we had with ease. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a house.

He is the best resource anyone could have when it comes to selling, buying, or financing Orange County real estate. Many of our close friends have also worked with Andrew, and they love him as much as we do. He really does run circles around his comp...

We knew Andrew was going to be our guy when we did the first tour with him. He was extremely polite and very professional. We were first-time homebuyers and did not know much about the home-buying process. Andrew helped us every step of the way and was always very patient with our questions and concerns. When we finally found our dream home, he stepped it up big time. It was our first offer, and we went ...
