Ratings & Reviews

With Bandele you explain your goals to her then STAND BACK!! She's off like a whirlwind. Her experience lets her "see around corners". She's very conscientious about keeping you informed and she guards your interests when problems arise. The seller was having problems with his sales representation and I was making an exchange purchase. Bandele went directly to him and convinced him to keep the sale open while the exchange closed escrow. She also arranged for the appraisers and contractors to correct small problems in preparation for rental of the property.

Extremely knowledgeable real estate professional, with a law background that doesn't hurt in negotiating and closing paperwork. Great personality and an overall great person. Strong follow up and follow through abilities. Glad to have Bandele in my business network and would highly recommend.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 in Chatsworth, Chatsworth, CA.

Bandele Oguntomilade: she’s amazing, a go getter, passionate, determined and hard working. Here is the story about my situation: my new fiancé and I started to look for a new home for our family. In this current housing market and with our modest price range, it was going to be a difficult task. So difficult in fact, that we were blown off by other real estate agents who didn’t want to waste their time with our small budget. We were becoming increasing frustrated, then Bandele popped into our home buying situation. Bandele, was up for the job; she was open to our modest price range for our first family home and was determine to find us a home to fit our needs. We appreciate her patience in taking the time to go through all the details, walking us through the step by step home buying process and answering all the questions we had as new home buyers. We are very thankful to have Bandele for all of our future real estate needs; Bandele exceeded our expectations. I refer all my friends and family to her.

Bought a home in 2013 in Fern Ann Falls, CA 91311.

My fiancé and I met Bandele 1 year prior to starting the process of purchasing our home when we walked into an open house. We immediately noticed how professional and knowledgeable she was. She kept in touch with us throughout a whole year and would answer any questions we had for her even though we weren't in the process yet. We knew we were in good hands once we started looking for our home. I immediately mention Bandele to everyone I know is looking to purchase a home

Bought a home in 2014 in Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, CA 90068.

Bandele helped me buy my 1st home! I had a good base of real estate knowledge going into this transaction, but her insights and guidance was what got our deal to the finish line. Timely. Very strong communication skills. Proactive. Thorough. These are are the key terms that come to my mind when I think about Bandele. She is a problem solver and she solved my real estate problem. I hardly write any reviews, but I would strongly recommend this lady for all of your real estate needs.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Chatsworth, Chatsworth, CA.

Bandele has been my fourth real estate agent and by far the best. She is very responsive; she listens to her clients; she caters to her clients; regardless if your budget is $200K or $2M. She shares her practical wisdom and gives good "no-pressure-take-it-or-leave-it" advice (meaning that she won't be hurt if you don't follow her advice because she preaches that it's ultimately your decision and you need to make the right decision for yourself). She has a high level of professionalism and a strong personality to deal with un-cooperative or less-than-professional agents, lenders, escrow, etc. She knows exactly what needs to be done, when it needs to be done and by whom it needs to be done and does a good job of managing the "project" of buying and selling real estate. She also has an extensive network of professionals in the real estate industry from lenders, to inspectors, to contractors, you name it, which made my home buying process a lot less stressful. Bandele is an amazing agent who stays with you every step of the way. I now have a real estate agent for life. Thank you Bandele!

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Corona Valley, Corona, CA 92880

I called Mrs. Bandele regarding a property in Chino, Ca and she was VERY RUDE. When I asked what the bankruptcy process was she was very vague and dismissive. She would not answer ANY questions. Too bad for me because I really wanted the house but I would NEVER do business with someone like that!

Bought a home in 2014 in Glassell Park, Los Angeles, CA 90065.

Bandele is the rare quality of professional that you can have complete confidence in. We were first-timers referred to Bandele by a banker who left his post a couple of days after pre-qualifying us. Bandele took the reins from the first phone call, and her skill and intuition helped us realize all of the possibilities. We stretched beyond our original objective of home ownership to investing our savings in an income property.

We found exactly the one we wanted on our first outing together, but it took three months to close. The transaction was complicated with changing banks and escrow companies, very uncooperative sellers and tenants, aborted inspections that required rescheduling a team of tradespeople at a moment’s notice, finding a back-up property when things looked doubtful, pest control and major repairs certified at the eleventh hour, and several renovation bids. Bandele attended to everything faultlessly and kept us updated day and night. She accommodated our limited availability during a period we were both working and studying overtime (to keep our paychecks coming for the next 30 years).

Bandele helped us beyond reason to get the property we felt was meant for us and worked hard to keep it a very positive, memorable experience for us. With every new obstacle, we didn't have a doubt she would protect our interests in negotiations and go over the fine print with us. She also had quality referrals at her fingertips for everything we needed to make our move a success.

There is not a better broker out there.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Winnetka, Winnetka, CA.

My wife and I have had several opportunities to work with Bandele on real estate and rental transactions over the last few years and have been nothing, but totally satisfied with the outcome. Bandele is a polished, sophisticated and extremely well educated real estate broker. Her knowledge about the real estate market and ability to structure complex transactions is superb. Bandele is not your run of the mill real estate professional; she is an architect as well as a trained lawyer with many years of legal experience in the real estate departments of some of the largest financial institutions in the country. As such she brings to the table a complete understanding of the real estate world. Bandele always puts her clients' interest in the forefront and she is a go-getter. She knows how to get things done because of her vast knowledge base and is not intimidated by the nature of the underlying legal issues in certain transactions. She knows the ins and outs of foreclosures and short sales whereas many realtors and brokers have barely a superficial understanding of the legal complexities. We would recommend Bandele to anyone who is interested in pursuing and completing a real estate transaction.

Sold a home in 2012 in Santa Susana, Simi Valley, CA 93063.

Bandele provides excellent service and knowledge in her field. She is very well-versed at the trends and patterns of the current and local real estate market. During our process of a stressful short-sale; her tenaciousness and determination in negotiations made the transaction smooth and quick. Her vast knowledge and expertise in the fields of financial and real estate law provided us with a sense of personal service that you would get with a real estate agent, financial advisor, and mortgage consultant. Because of that she is a unique and one-of- a -kind professional individual in her industry. I have consistently recommended Bandele to my family, friends, and co-workers. She will always be trusted to do all my future real estate transactions.
