I was selling a condo that I had been renting out. When I put it up for sale we discovered that there was a sewage back-up in the building, with considerable damage to my condo. Regina did a terrific job of finding a buyer, helping me get compensated by the HOA, and dealing with the buyer who had financing problems. I’m 90 years old and hard of hearing so Regina had to do a lot of the communication. She was always available and advised me on the numerous decisions I had to make because of the unusual circumstances.

Regina did a fantastic job throughout this sales process. We live in the Bay Area and while we chose Regina because she had a strong team that could identify vendors and manage the work in preparation for going to market, this became an even greater need as the COVID shelter-in-place order took place right after receiving offers. Despite the challenging environment, things proceeded smoothly and efficiently and we closed on schedule after getting a price significantly over-asking. We would highly recommend Regina to anyone buying or selling a home in the Santa Monica area.

Regina is hands down the realtor you want. She is professional, ethical, knowledgeable, Intelligent, hardworking, and perfect in every way!! On top of it, she has a lot of gusto”, and gets the job done quickly and efficiently! Excellent communicator. It was so easy to trust Regina… I’m telling you she knows what she’s doing!! She has unbelievable insight and extensive experience. She’s very smart. Just look at her record! It speaks for itself. Regina recommended that I remodel of my condo, which is what I did. It turned out beautiful!!! Compass fronted the money for me, which was great. So it showed really well and sold very quickly. I trusted her 100% and didn’t have to worry…and it all turned out to be the best experience I’ve ever had. You will not be disappointed with Regina. She is elite, top notch, hard working, strategic, charming, friendly and exudes professionalism and confidence like nobody I’ve ever seen. Thank you Regina for such a smooth transaction! Regina’s entire team was absolutely outstanding and I can’t thank you enough again for making the stress of moving, a very positive one!

Regina is everything you want in a real estate agent – smart, straight-forward, hard-working and well-connected. My home was an unusual one, a high-end condo that was also a historically designated property. It needed a well-crafted marketing strategy and precision execution. To add to the complexity, I paid top dollar for it when I bought it so maximizing the sale price was a must. Regina was able to sell it for me at a profit after owning it for just a short period of time. Realtors in this town are a dime a dozen, unfortunately most of them are sorely lacking in skill and professionalism. This is my fifth transaction with Regina – she continues to impress me with her approach and her results. Regina is at the top of her game – nobody else even comes close.

Austin could not have done a better job with this listing!
Wife and I were originally leaning in the ‘self-service’ direction, but frankly could not have gotten through this transaction without Austin’s help
– Negotiations (we got 15% knocked off the asking price with Austin’s help)
– Managing escrow process (we were super clueless on this, he helped a ton)
– Being a professional all the way through on the million small details I never would’ve thought of (paperwork timing, inspections, payments, etc…)

Regina Vannicola is the best! I’ve been through 5 home purchases/sales in my life and I have nothing but praise for Regina and her team. I contacted her to sell my little studio unit in Santa Monica. She arranged the cleaning, staging, and photos within a week. She took care of everything and all I had to do was just sign documents. I had offers at the first showing and closed in less than two weeks. This realtor works hard and earns her commission. Whether you are buying or selling you need to have Regina working for you!

We bought and sold with Regina and we were very happy with the process. She jumped in when we were in a pinch on one of the deals and she was great. She was very communicative so we always knew where things stood and she was a straight shooter, which we appreciated. Regina is a very experienced professional, she knew how to respond to the different situations that came up so that both transactions were smooth. She appreciates the client/agent relationship and was willing to go to bat for what we wanted. Added bonus, she had some great recommendations for service professionals. Overall, we’d recommend working with Regina.

It’s difficult to describe how perfect our experience was in working with Austin without resorting to hyperbole! My husband and I run a law firm and it’s impossible for us to give anything other than our careers the full attention they deserve. Austin took the weight of the entire process off of our shoulders and made everything run so smoothly. He’s an impressive negotiator–we were able to get our offer accepted at the number we wanted without a counter–and he is intelligent, warm, attentive, and knowledgeable. I would recommend his services to anyone looking for or selling a home on the west side.

Austin was a very responsive and professional agent. He helped me to buy a home which turned into a very complicated situation because of difficult sellers, unexpected mold, and other unexpected inspection issues that came up. Austin was there every step of the way and made sure we closed smoothly.

We interviewed several potential realtors and Regina responded to our initial email inquiry within 10 minutes. She arrived at our introductory meeting fully prepared and her plan for marketing our property was impressive. In a slow market, we received multiple offers within the first week and ultimately closed with an offer that was well above our asking price.
We trusted Regina and her team to handle all the details, including significant preparation and staging, and she listened and responded to our needs as well. We never doubted our decision to work with Regina, and in fact it only became more clear that we made the right choice as we moved through the process. The passion she has for what she does is evident. She communicated with us almost daily. We never had to worry about anything, and that was really important for us because we lived out of state during the sale. We appreciated her knowledge, integrity, and professionalism. It was a pleasure working with her.
Other realtors may go through the motions. If you want it done right, go with Regina!
