I worked with Denise on selling a condo in Redondo Beach recently. I am the executor of an estate that included the sale of this condo on behalf of the beneficiaries. I live in Ventura County, which made it difficult for me to be in Redondo on a regular basis. With Denise's guidance, we upgraded the interior of the condo at a minor cost, she introduced me to contractors who were reliable and on time, and she staged the condo beautifully. We sold in three days, and received a higher amount from the sale of the condo than I or the beneficiaries of the estate had expected! Denise took a lot of the work load off of my shoulders since I was miles away. Denise is a true professional!

Sold a home in 2013 in Lake San Marcos, San Marcos, CA 92078.

Denise helped us navigate the complicated process of selling our house from afar, which was complicated - to say the least! She provided recommendations for a bevy of vendors to do very good quality work on our house to get it ready to sell. Denise also managed all the vendors and went out to our house daily to ensure everything was going according to plan.

I would highly recommend Denise as she was knowledgable, reasonable and responsive to all our requests, questions and concerns! Denise is thoughtful and always provided sound advice. I always felt like we were in good hands and she was trustworthy and detail oriented throughout the entire process.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $1.825M in Manhattan Beach, CA.

I have used Denise to sell three houses, and purchase two homes, all in Manhattan Beach. Denise is extremely knowledgeable about South Bay real estate, is well-connected, and very organized. She has a great attitude--"No problems, only solutions." It is my pleasure to recommend Denise to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in the South Bay.

Bought a home in 2012.

I cannot express how wonderful it was to have Denise Lavell as my realtor.

As a first time homebuyer, Denise provide me with the resources and guidance to find and purchase a home that was within my means (which in this geographical area, is no easy task!). She provided knowledgeable suggestions and ideas to consider when discussing a potential property and thank goodness she had the experience and expertise to guide me away from some of the properties I first saw and thought that I really wanted.

Denise coached me through the escrow process that had numerous unpleasant surprises, such as an unexpected extension (due to the Seller) and a home that did not initially pass the termite and mold inspection (such inspections were based on her recommendations). Denise ensured all items were properly addressed and always communicated with the Seller's agent in a professional and timely manner, even when that professionalism and timeliness was not reciprocated.

Denise's positive attitude and proactive nature was such a blessing to me. I never once worried about the paperwork I was signing as she explained each document thoroughly. With Denise, I knew that she had ensured that every "i" was dotted and every "t" was crossed in each step of my home buying process.

I wholeheartedly recommend Denise to anyone that seeks an experienced, professional and conscientious realtor.

I imagine it can be difficult at times when an agent represents both the buyer and seller in our case, but Denise Lavell only demonstrated the highest professionalism and fairness throughout the entire purchasing process for us. Denise is thorough, responsive and she takes the time to explain everything. I would highly recommend Denise for your home selling/buying needs.

Denise did an outstanding job in selling our property and handling mulitple bids to our best advantage. The best news was that she sold the property in less than 30 days. She is very respectiful, efficient and totally responsive to the requests and needs of the seller. Need I say more.....I totally recommend Denise for anyone selling or buying a house in the beach area.
