Thank you Glen for all the hard yards you put in for us on Saturday to obtain the results we did. Your knowledge of the industry is invaluable and to combine this with your enthusiasm, professionalism and positive nature is peace of mind for any prospective vendor. We were extremely pleased to have you on our side throughout this process.
Your ability to successfully manipulate and read the potential buyers art my auction resulted in a more than satisfactory sale price. I feel comfortable contacting you anything with questions about future purchases.
Alex and Deanna are the only people I would recommend with complete confidence. They far exceeded any expectations I could have imagined. I handed over the keys to my home and they handled everything extremely quickly getting it on the market. The staging made our mid-century modern home look like a model! The process was totally turnkey from staging, marketing, open houses with follow up and negotiating on the many offers we received after the first open house. We sold the house for K over asking!!! To top it off, they are the nicest people to work with and always go above and beyond. It is a no brainer... they are the BEST!!!
Alex and Deanna made the process of buying our first home seamless. They are an amazing team and went above and beyond every step of the way. I cannot recommend them enough. We will be clients for life!
There are very few professionals like, Brooke Coutinho. She masters the fine art of communication, kindness, and intelligence when completing any task at hand. I have the honor of working with Brooke and our international women’s real estate group called, Real Women In Real Estate Los Angeles. As a real estate professional, homeowner, and investor I have 100% confidence in Brooke and honestly, I wish I could steal her away to work with me. She is the proverbial unicorn in our business.
I have worked alongside Brooke Coutinho for approx. 5 years. During this time I found her to be extremely helpful, so efficient and always professional! I would love to have Brooke in my team and or have her assisting me with a transaction as I know I could always rely on her to provide the best outcome possible! If you need any further information please feel free to contact me.
Elise is a mind reader! Well, not really BUT when I told her what my must-haves were, she listened. And, when I told her where I wouldn’t compromise, she got it. Time is precious and she respected that and didn’t waste my time by showing me homes that didn’t work for me. That’s important to me.
Christine helped us with our relocation from the Central Valley recently. We had a very specific timeline as this was a work relocation, a specific lists of wants, budget and knew nothing about the area. Christine was respectful of all this and got us in our home with all boxes checked. Honestly, couldn’t be more pleased. A true professional and would highly recommend her. We are beyond happy, and fortunate, to have had Christine on our team.
Amanda was absolutely amazing in every way!! She was the perfect agent for my hectic schedule. I was relocating from NY to Los Angeles. I scheduled a two week trip to Los Angeles to lock in a place while in town. Amanda came highly recommended as the agent to help me meet the goal. From the first meeting she was highly attentive, and immediately began sending listings for consideration. Within one day she was scheduling appointments to tour homes in person. And then the perfect house (for me) hit the market. I knew that it would be a competitive listing, and it absolutely was. She moved swiftly to contact the listing agent, scheduled viewings, submitted the offer and ultimately secured the place for me. I was so impressed at her navigation, communication and personal touches throughout the entire process. I couldn’t be happier, and I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
She is a great realtor and takes her time and always answers her phone if you have a question.She is very helpful and takes her time to make sure you make the right choice.Thank you for helping us and taking your time.
Amanda is a superb agent. She is generous with her time and made herself available whenever needed. Would highly recommend Amanda to whoever is reading this review.
She is very knowledgeable in real estate and is very patient in answering all your questions. She goes out of her way to help you with all your needs.
I find Cherri to be hard working, responsible, professional and focused on her client's best interest. When the escrow became complex, she was the one who stepped forward and spent the time and effort needed to address the problem. Although the transaction did not close, I am impressed with her commitment and composure under difficult circumstances. I would be please work with her again, when he opportunity arrises.
I worked with a few other realtors until a friend of mine recommended Cherri Bright. I’m very grateful to have worked with her. She’s talented, experienced, quick to respond and a great communicator. Every offer we made was either accepted or came 2nd to a cash buyer. We finally found my dream home and I can’t be happier. I’m looking forward to buying my second property with her!
Cherri is an amazing Agent that goes beyond to help you find what your looking for in Real Estate. Her knowledge of global markets and quality not just quantity is what hits the point. She really finds what is suited to each individual buyer. The team are the best in the business. She never stops working and emailing prospective homes, even after I have left. So on the ball, but now know why she is where she is and Agent. Thank you Cherri for taking the time to show us great homes over our time in LA, can’t wait to put pen to paper soon??
Cherri is a delight to work with! We met her at a showing for another home, but we quickly connected afterwards. She listened to us, explained the current market, and laid out a plan for us to get us the home in the area we wanted.
