I had previously used Brett and Jen to sell a house, so I knew how good they are. I needed to sell a house I inherited, and it needed a lot of repair and upgrade work just to get it ready to sell. I did much of the work myself, but when I had a medical interruption, they stepped in with high quality, trustworthy contractors and quickly finished it. They then put it on the market and promoted it. They suggested a price which I thought was rather high compared to recent sales of similar houses in the area, but I went along with it. After an open house on the first weekend, we had three offers, all over the asking price. We closed 35 days later. It can't get much better than that.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.475M in La Habra Heights, CA.

I have worked with Brett and Jen as both a buyer and a seller. They are very knowledgeable about their market and most every listing within it. Communication is exceptional. They kept me informed every step of the process. Their input on pricing decisions was objective and helpful; as opposed to others who will say whatever will cause a fast commission.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Hacienda Heights, CA.

They are the best! Happy to recommend their service. They listed and sold our condo and even "staged" it to help it sell. They helped price the property and scheduled an Open House. They contacted several other Realtors to expose the property. They sold it to a buyer who attended the open house. They go "above and beyond" and get results. If you hire them you will be happy.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $575K in La Habra, CA.

Brett and Jen were wonderful. I was very impressed with their offer to furnish and stage the house for us with very inhancing furniture in every room, that made the interior stand out and so much more appealing. They answered every phone call immediately and addressed every question or concern in the same manner. Brett and Jan's efforts and compansion were unmatched my any agent I have listed or bought from in the past. I only wish I had listed another property I sold 4 years ago with with them, What a difference the Bett and Jen made. I will certainly share my delight and hapinessness with their efforts to anyone looking to buy or sell a home and strongly suggest using Brett and Jen,if you want a professional agent that will take your property personality. Your going to pay the same commision to sell, so why not get the top agents representing you.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $650K in Hacienda Heights, CA.

This was my third home purchase and working with Brett and Jen was the best experience I've had. Their knowledge of the local market is amazing so they're able to find what you're looking for in a home quickly. With years of experience their professional network is quite large. This was evident when house hunting my wife and I had questions about each home we were shown. By the time we got to the next showing Brett and Jen made phones calls in the car and those questions were answered immediately. Brett and Jen communicate with you daily during the home buying process. They call you in the morning with a game plan for the day and they call you with an update at the end of the day. Negotiations went well because they have an established reputation for solid buyers and close deals on time. Also, Brett and Jen use an electronic document signing program which made signing an offer done in seconds.

In the past I've missed out on homes because I had incompetent real estate agents. Don't let that happen to you. Brett and Jen truly know what they're doing and are the best in the business.

Sold a home in 2013 in Des Moines, La Habra Heights, CA 90631.

Our experience with Brett and Jen was fabulous!

They completely familiarized themselves with the house/property immediately.

They were accessible. They answered their phones, texted, emailed, got back to us asap if they were busy. They stopped by just to say "hello", kept their promises, were very supportive.

Brett and/or Jen showed up if another agent brought a prospective client. They did not just list the house and wait for "someone" to sell it. They were involved. If I was there, they introduced me, asked me to answer questions. Felt that meeting the owner was sometimes what "sold" a house.

Since ours was a "City Lights" La Habra Hts house they encouraged prospective buyers to return after dark, and they cared enough to return as well. Or, if they were busy, encouraged me to "host" them.

They also firmly believed that our price was fair to both buyers and sellers, and that is what it sold for in the end.

They sold it in approximately 2 weeks to friends of prior clients after another agent had had it for approximately 5 months.

Amazing experience, smooth as butter, no surprises. Totally delightful Mother and daughter team. We highly recommend Brett and Jen!!!

Bought a home in 2012 in La Mirada, CA 90638.

These two wonderful ladies helped make our first home buying experience a true joy! They are super friendly and awesome folks that REALLY give their all for their clients. I wouldn't hesitate seeking their expertise for a moment and, should the need ever come up in the future for another purchase, they'll be my first call!

Helped me rent a Single Family home in Brea, CA.

Jen and Brett are such kind people and superstars at there job. They have multiple homes they rent, buy and sell in my neighborhood so it's always nice to see them in the neighborhood or there face up on a sign. Anything I needed when I moved in was processed immediately and they listened to my wants and needs for finding a place. We love our home and hope to stay here for a whole!
