Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $1.9M in Northeast, Santa Monica, CA.
I’ve never been one to think real estate agents are ever worth what they end up making on every sale but….wow…did Regina change my perspective on that. She started working for us a year before we put our place on the market. She walked through our apartment 3 or 4 times to help decide what updates were worth our making. Once she helped us decide to update the kitchen, get new appliances, paint bathrooms, and several other fixes, she took complete responsibility for getting them done. She got the appliance guys to come and measure the kitchen for appliances and then install them. She brought in the contractor to turn our drab kitchen into the apartment’s showpiece. She then worked with the stagers to make last minute adjustments to make sure everything was perfect. Once the unit went on the market, she hosted an open house that got us multiple offers well over asking. Within 3 days, we had chosen a buyer and two weeks later we closed. In the two weeks between the offer and the close, Regina was just amazing. She was on top of everything, making sure we had everything signed in time, making sure we understood the ramifications of each move, and making sure nothing would get in the way of the deal closing. This involved her making multiple trips to the unit and dozens of phone calls. She is so smart and I can’t imagine anybody working harder than she did for us. Even if our townhouse didn’t sell for almost $100k over asking, we would’ve been thrilled with everything Regina did for us. And the cool thing is that we now consider her a really good friend.
