We met Angela randomly at an open house that she was presenting. We have met many other agents this way, but she was the only one we've met in L.A. that highly impressed us from just this meeting. We told her initially that we weren't quite ready to get into the buying market yet, and we were just putting feelers out. We asked what seemed to be a couple inconsequential questions regarding the property she was showing. Within a couple hours she had remembered, called us back and provided the answers. I guarantee that 95% of other realtors out there wouldn't have even bothered calling back to answer these minor questions to a couple who were on the fence as to whether or not they'd be buying in the near future. When we did finally decide to move ahead with a home purchase and home sale a month later, we contacted Angela to interview her. She came to our house very prepared with comps and a strategy to sell our current home. We were impressed with her attention to detail and her knowledge of multiple areas of the city. Based on the interview, we selected Angela to help us buy our new home and sell our existing home.
During the process, her responsiveness and attention to detail continued to impress us. We were never left waiting long for answers to our multiple questions during the process. She attended every inspection for both the home purchase and home sale without hesitation. During the sale of our existing home, she was always available personally for showings and open houses.
There are many other realtors out there, but, Angela stands out as someone who is genuinely happy to be working hard to get you into a new home or sell your current home. I don't think you'd find a more professional or harder working realtor in this large city.
Angela is a highly knowledgeable, honest, and super responsive real estate agent, and we can’t recommend her highly enough.
My husband and I met Angela while attending an open house in west LA. She was immediately helpful, offering us similar comps in the area and dinner recommendations in the neighborhood since we weren’t very familiar with the neighborhood. We had met a few agents previously at other open houses but hadn’t chosen one to work with yet, and got a great vibe from Angela. She graciously put up with our request to ‘interview’ her along with other agents in order to make a decision on who to represent us. What made Angela stand out to us was her educational approach to the home buying process, and the level of attention she claimed she was able to give to each of her clients.
She didn’t disappoint - her attention to detail surpassed our expectations. She never once went MIA on us - she replied to every call, text, and email promptly, even at odd hours. She toured every home we were interested in with us, in order to personally meet the seller's agent and get as much info as possible. She sent us informative real estate articles on topics we were interested in. She was supportive and patient throughout every offer negotiation (we made offers on several houses), and we always felt like we were given professional advice without any pushiness. Once we went into escrow on a house, she clearly outlined every step and got our paperwork organized, lined up the vendors we needed, and even helped to mediate problems that were outside of her responsibility, like with our mortgage lender and some post-closing repairs.
We are now happily moved into our new home, and we give Angela our utmost recommendation.
Angela came highly recommended by a close friend and she did not disappoint!! As a 1st time homebuyer, Angela exceeded my expectations on the role of a realtor. Even before I began to look seriously, Angela took the time to walk me through the entire home buying process. She went out of her way to attend open houses with me to educate me on what I truly wanted. When I would see a listing that I was excited about, Angela would prioritize seeing it herself during realtor openings to help inform my decisions. Moreover, when it came time to negotiate, she always had my best interest. Angela's honesty and openness made the process truly exceptional. I would recommend her wholeheartedly to all my friends.
I've worked personally with Angela on several transactions and she is top-notch. Angela is a Realtor who cares more about her client's well-being, their future plans as homeowners and the overall financial success of her clients more than almost any other Realtor I've come across. She is just as quick to fight for an offer as she is to counsel her clients as to why a property might not be in their best interest. A 5-star professional and consultant - NOT just some Realtor who is out to close a deal. I highly recommend Angela as a real-estate professional if you're renting, buying or selling a house in the area.
Angela created the best real estate experience for me and my family, she is extremely knowledgeable about the market. My family and I were looking for a condo with a few requirements and guidelines on what we wanted, with just a little bit of information Angela was able to show some wonderful and beautiful properties that I would have never even thought about looking at. She was very prompt in all forms of communication email, text, or phone call, this definitely helped put me at ease, especially during the offer, escrow stages of getting my current condo. I am so glad I chose Angela to help me with my real estate needs. I highly recommend Angela, she really helped my life to be much more simple and relaxed with this best possible outcome!
We met Angela at an open house and spoke briefly about being first time home buyers and feeling a bit in over our heads. She offered to meet us for coffee the following weekend to discuss the process from start to finish. She began to set up open houses for us to attend and did a very good job of noting what we did and did not like about locations to continue to refine her search. When we found our perfect home she was very knowledgeable about the offer we would need to stay in contention. She helped us negotiate and close on the home, has continued to follow up, and has exceeded our expectations from the time we met her until well after we closed.
Angela was my real estate agent when I bought my first house in LA area in 2017 Summer. Angela was a terrific real estate agent to work with; very knowledgeable and helpful. She definitely showed profession in real estate and many areas in offer,escrow,closing. She treated me in a way that showed that she really wanted to help me get the desired property that my wife and I wanted. As many people may know, 2017 real estate market was very hot (may be hotter now) and thanks to Angela to work with seller agents with her great connections. Angela was such a great agent and person that I would recommend to any friend of mine to make the Home Dream come true. I'm looking forward to working with her on my next home.
I am so grateful that I was put in touch with Angela to pursue buying my first home. I had no experience with real estate and very limited knowledge of the home-buying process. Fortunately for me, this did not matter! Angela walked me through the entire process before we began, and was incredible at guiding me through each step as we came to it. She made the process easy and very successful! Angela is so kind, professional, and phenomenal at her job. She is very accessible and impressively prompt in everything she does. I have already recommended her to my friends who are looking to buy homes. I will miss working with her!
Angela came by highly recommended through my colleagues and completely redefined my expectations in the role that an agent can play. With the rigor of settling into my new job, Angela managed to ramp me up on the process as quickly and concisely as possible and provided invaluable recommendations on the best and optimal ways to balance between a speedy process and getting the word out. Hats off to Angela for making this home selling process as painless and seamless as possible with better than expected results!
When going through the home buying process, Angela was attentive to our needs and made sure that whenever we had questions, they were handled in a timely and professional manner. She is detail-oriented, so nothing escaped her when it came to the inspections or all the paperwork that required our review and signature, and she was very easy to get a hold of when needed. Angela made the experience of buying our home a pleasant one. Thanks for everything, Angela!
Angela was very easy to work with! She's a knowledgeable individual who went out of her way to make our transaction as smooth as possible. My family wanted to find a buyer for our family home who would love it as much as we did, and she took the extra time to ensure that all parties were comfortable! We were able to close escrow early thanks to her expertise open houses etc went well too!. Highly recommend this professional and her team!
Buying a home for the first time is awfully scary. Luckily, I met Angela who helped me through the entire process as my real estate agent and friend. I finally closed on my first home in May 2017 - it was so stressful. Thank God for Angela, walking me through every step of the way and giving me great advice making my life a whole lot easier. She has a great deal of knowledge in the market and knows many contractors. She’s extremely easy to talk to and work with. Always responsive and always thinks on my behalf.
I was referred to Angela by my friend. I was relocating back to Los Angeles from Seattle and was looking for a good deal. Angela was able to get this property for me when there were other buyers wanting to bid on the property. She was able to negotiate the best terms. Because of my busy work schedule, she attended all of the inspections and was great at keeping me in the loop with any updates. Highly recommend her for a purchase of a home in Los Angeles.
Can't recommend Angela enough. We had heard about her through a friend who worked with her on multiple properties and spoke very highly. When we reached out to her we already had a house in mind and an offer needed to be made quickly. She was able to set us up with a great lender and make an offer happen in less than a week, which was no small feat! She shared a lot of great insight on making the right counteroffer and how to negotiate wisely. Through the entire process she was communicative, thorough, and totally on top of things, even going as far as to fix oversights made by the seller's agent. Oh and she did all this while ~7 months pregnant!! We are so grateful that we had the opportunity to work with Angela. Now we have our dream house to show for it!
Angela is amazing. A friend of mine referred me to her to help with finding a new place to lease on the westside, and she has been nothing but diligent, kind, and responsive as we’ve house-hunted. We had some pretty particular criteria but she was able to set up searches and help us comb through the inventory. Lots of agents put you on autopilot, but Angela is the opposite – so attentive and hands-on. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy, lease, or sell!
We had an excellent experience working with Angela on the purchase of our first SoCal home. We had previously owned a home in the Midwest, but the real estate market is pretty different out here, which initially made me a little apprehensive about the process. I had no reason to be worried! Angela had every detail ironed out to a T, from the first time we met with her when she had already gleaned key details about newly sold homes I had been interested in. All the way through the home-buying journey, Angela was available via text, email, or simply a phone call to explain important steps and offer her opinion on how we should manage various negotiations. Beyond simply making an offer, a big part of the value she provides is guiding you through the important inspections process. All the contractors she suggested were professional and helpful. Her network and insight about the complex world of LA real estate is extremely beneficial if you're unfamiliar to it. Angela was referred to us by a friend. We feel that we really lucked out with that referral! By way of contrast, I talked to another agent early in our home search, who possessed nowhere near the enthusiastic approach, positive attitude, and can-do spirit that Angela provided. It's clear if you talk to other agents in this area that Angela is a cut above them.
Had a great experience working with Angela. I found her through Zillow 4 years ago, and at the time her area of focus and the areas I was looking for did not line up, but she kept in touch and gave me great insights throughout the years. This year I started looking for a place in the neighborhoods she specializes in, so we finally got a chance to work together.
She was communicative, provided smart advice, and diligently kept on top of process the whole way through. You will not find a more accommodating agent, throughout escrow she was even giving me status updates on her vacation in Taiwan. I have interacted with many agents throughout the years and Angela is definitely one of the best if not the best one I've worked with. Cannot recommend her enough!
Working with Angela was amazing from beginning to end - she not only helped us secure our amazing home, but also helped us navigate as first time buyers in what has since become an even crazier market. We trust Angela completely, have recommended her to friends, and will definitely work with her again in the future. Angela is open, communicative, very knowledgeable, and most of all a good human being.
Angela just helped us buy our first home and I cannot speak any higher of her character and expertise. She is attentive, kind, and hard working. I am convinced we were able to close on the cusp of a pandemic because of her guidance and swift work. We met Angela at an open house she was hosting and she offered to have us come by her office and walk us through the process of home buying (we were completely clueless). I appreciated that she never gave us the hard sell or pressured us to work with her exclusively- even though we instantly decided to. She patiently answered the six million questions we had and made us feel at ease. She made sure we were well informed and prepared to make the process as easy as possible. She knows her stuff, and she knows great vendors. She connected us to a mortgage broker that was a perfect fit for our financial situation. We've also been happy with all the inspectors and various trades people she has recommended. It has made our lives so much easier. When it came to buying our house, she knew exactly what we had to do to get the job done. We were up against multiple bidders, and we would have lost the house if we came in under what she recommended. We had 100% confidence in her and her judgement calls throughout the entire process. We closed over a week ago and she is still making herself available for questions and checking in on us to see how we're making out. I cannot recommend Angela enough. If we ever have to sell our home she will be the first phone call I make! Thank you Angela!!
Angela represented us on both the buying and selling side, and we truly can't say enough great things about our experience. I'll be the first one to say I can be intense to work with and she never made me feel like it was too much to handle. If anything she helped me stay as calm as possible and dealt with the whole process with professionalism and ease. We got above asking for our condo and are now living in a home that we love so much and we really could not have done it without her help!
Angela is so hardworking and driven, but also very kind and easy-going which is such an important balance when dealing with the high-stress of selling your house/ buying a new one, moving and all that comes with it. We've grown to become friends with Angela and respect her on all levels!
We have worked with Angela for three separate transactions in the last five years. Most recently, she sold our home in Hollywood. She has always worked very diligently for us and we couldn't be more satisfied. Even during the challenging times related to COVID, she was able to show our home safely, securely, and help us obtain a great sale price. She was always responsive and available for consultations or advice. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to represent you.
I had such a great experience working with Angela! I worked with her to purchase my first home and it was such a seamless experience! She gave great guidance throughout the offer process in order for my offer to get accepted on my dream home. Angela was beyond organized throughout escrow and had awesome referrals for inspectors who each made themselves available in short timeframes - some of which I hired to do repairs after closing. She was patient and always made herself available and worked with a strong sense of urgency. I also appreciated how realistic she was throughout the process. Buying a home can be stressful, but Angela made the process so enjoyable! Highly recommend working with Angela!
Angela was the best. I didn't have the easiest time selling my house (not to mention having to navigate all the complexities COVID brought) and Angela guided me through the whole process calmly and supportively - and we made it happen! Couldn't recommend her highly enough. Five Stars!
