Congrats to Will and Ada for becoming Home Owners!

Wilver and Ada came back after taking a break 5 years ago and were eager to get back into the search.

Congrats to Chris and Ashley for becoming Home Owners!

Chris and Ashley reached out to us as a referral from Victor and Jasmine who we helped a few times over the last 8 years. After a quick conversation with Chris & Ashley, we knew they were serious because they had already met with a lender and were ready to start shopping.

Marysol, our awesome buyers’ agent stepped in and they were off to the races. After a few homes, Chris and Ashley’s offer was accepted. Fast forward 35 days later, we are here at this moment where we have some new homeowners in front of us.

Congrats to Ian and Bianca for becoming Home Owners!

Ian and Bianca came to us right at the end of 2017 as a referral from one of our awesome past clients. After meeting with a lender, they were ready to start their home search and they were connected with our Superstar Buyers’ agent, Mary.

Mary was heading out on vacation the day she got the call, and on the way out of town, she was already discussing Ian and Bianca’s home buying needs.

After a much-needed vacation, Mary met with them in person to go over the home buying process. That very weekend, they were out looking at homes.

After viewing six properties and after comparing their options, they were clear on their number one pick! Fast forward two weeks from the initial meeting, Ian and Bianca’s offer was accepted on their top choice.

Since Ian and Bianca were so well organized it moved the loan process along smoothly. Thank you to Dave Heard for his partnership with the loan process and closing in just 21 days!

Thank you to Mary for doing a killer job, and to Ian and Bianca for allowing us to be part of this milestone for your family. Cheers to the new partnership and it was a pleasure representing you in the purchase of your beautiful home.

Congrats to Zaki and Lelian for becoming homeowners again!!

Zaki and Lelian have been family friends for many years now, we first helped them about 10 years ago when they purchase their first home.

With a few new family additions, they needed a little more space. We connected them with one of our lender partners, Carmen Meraz with New American Funding to confirm what they would qualify for once again. The timing wasn’t right when they met initially (3 years ago), and they decided to stay in their current home for a couple more years.

This year-end, the timing was a lot better, and their search began! Carmen met with them again to update all their numbers and they were paired up with one of our amazing buyer's agent, Mary.

After viewing a few homes, they found one that would be the best fit for their growing family. After writing an offer with the home only on the market for two days, Mary was able to leverage one of our existing agent relationships to get their offer accepted and open Escrow!!!

Thirty days later, we are here at this special moment for the family. Thank you to Zaki and Lelian for allowing us to be part of this milestone for your family, and we can't wait for the housewarming!!!!

Special thanks to Mary for knocking it out of the park for Zaki and Lelian!!

Congrats to Luis and Erica for becoming Whittier's newest homeowners!!

Luis and Erica met us towards the beginning of the year at an open house in Whittier. The following week, Erica attended one of our homebuyers’ workshop to get educated on the Home Buying process.

Shortly after the workshop, they met with a lender to get a better sense of what they qualify for. Luis and Erica decided to save a little more before purchasing, so they would be in a stronger position once they became homeowners. We agreed to put the search on hold, and when they were comfortable with their savings, they would reach out to us.

Once ready got to that comfort point, they were ready to rock-n-roll with Francisco. Luis and Erica viewed about 15 homes, and saw their new home twice before making an offer. The first time was during the evening, so they had no light to properly see the exterior. They were set to view more homes towards the end of the week, and decided to put this home on the list again.

After that second look, they knew this home would be a good fit for their family and Francisco started the negotiation.

Fast forward 30 days, we are here at this moment. Thank you to Luis and Erica for allowing us to be part of this milestone for your family, and can't wait for the housewarming!!!!

A special thanks to Francisco for knocking it out of the park for Luis and Erica!!

Congratulations to Successful Home Seller’s Chris & My! - Whittier Real Estate Agent

Congrats to our sellers and friends Chris & My for successfully selling their home with our team!

Let us share with you Chris & My’s story, and how we help them sell their home for the highest amount in the complex in years at $32k over the previous highest sale.

The family was looking to sell because the mother-in-law wanted to be closer to the family. After interviewing multiple agent’s, they decided to list with Remo and team since they were the right fit to help them on their journey. After we formalized our relationship to sell their Pico Rivera home by signing a listing agreement, we were off to the races.

After some of our recommendations and services by some of our talented resources. The home was renewed with exterior and interior paint, recessed lighting, painted kitchen cabinets, new granite counter-tops, and landscaping in the front and backyard. Check here to see the before and after’s

After the home was ready, we provided our complimentary staging of all the rooms. The family spent a little under $10,000 and it took them about 4 weeks before putting the home on the market.

Our results… towards the end of the rehab, we ran two weeks of our Pre-Marketing to start the initial buzz of the home.  After a week on the market, we received 5 offers and we closed 28 days later for $16,000 over the list price and $32,000 over the highest price sale in the complex in years!

Chris and My’s full story is truly inspiring and it is our pleasure that they are now a part of our Team’s family.

Thinking about selling or buying, call/text 562-762-8581…We promise to roll up our sleeves and make some magic happen for you as well.

Congratulations Winston & Evelyn - WHittier Real Estate Agent

Congratulations to the Delos Santos family or successfully selling their town-home and buying their new home with her team!

Winston and Evelyn reached out to us a few years ago when they first thought about selling their town home, but after some number crunching, it wasn't the right time for them.

Fast-forward two years, Winston reach back out to us and said it was time because the kids needed a yard to play. We quickly got on it and within a few days, our awesome photographer Vidal, was at the home taken some killer pictures of the townhome.

Once on the market and with multiple offers, our rockstar buyers' agent Mary, was on the move showing them and the little ones homes. After a few weeks of shopping, their offer was accepted and we were on our way to a quick escrow.

Thank you Winston and Evelyn for reaching out to us and allowing us to be part of this milestone for the family. Thank you to Carmen with New American funding for quickly securing the financing, and a big thanks to Mary for making it all happen and being so awesome.

Sergio & Lauren Are In The House! - WHittier Real Estate Agent

Congrats to Sergio & Lauren for Successfully selling their Whittier, California home, and purchasing a larger home with our team!

Sergio and Lauren first reached out to us after seeing us on a few different social media platforms. They had questions about selling their home and moving to a larger home that would better accommodate their growing family. Before starting the search, Sergio and Lauren needed to meet with a lender to make sure all their finances were in order when they come to purchase their new larger home. After Eduardo confirming their financing, Sergio and Lauren were ready to move forward with the sale of their home.

Ever though their home was market ready, we made a few small suggestion to really make the home pop when it hit the market. Sergio was able to get on those suggested items within a week, and we were then off to the races!

Once on the market, we started receiving offers and soon afterwards we were in escrow. During this time, our awesome buyer’s agent Mary, was helping them start their search to find a new home. Their search took them from Rancho Cucamonga, to Pomona, and finally in Fontana, which is where they landed.

Sergio and Lauren viewed about 20 properties, sent in offers on three different homes, and they got their offer accepted on the home they really loved! They are excited about spending their summers swimming in their pool, while admiring the awesome mountain view they have.

Thank you to Sergio and Lauren for allowing us to be a part of this milestone for your family, and we can’t wait for the housewarming pool party! A special thanks to Mary for really finding such an awesome home for Sergio and Lauren.
