Ratings & Reviews

If you are looking for a professional, Gene is definitely the person. I initially called Gene at 8am on a Sunday morning. To my surprise he answered and was very friendly. He spent time answering all my questions and concerns. I had called other realtors but none gave me the trust I needed to list my property, and they would cost me more. They made me feel that they only had their best interest in mind and really only wanted their commission. I am not living in California and needed someone who I could trust and rely. Also, I had tenants living in the property so I needed someone who would respect their privacy. Gene met my requirements. From the moment we started business Gene was always prompt, returned my calls in a timely manner, clear, resourceful, efficient, patient, respectful, and nice. Throughout the transaction I had many questions and Gene not only informed me but also educated me in the real estate business. He kept me informed on how the market was going. Needless to say, Gene communicated via phone, texts, and Email even though there was a time difference. I did not have the pleasure of meeting him until several weeks after the house was listed. I took my 16 month old daughter to his office and his wife even offered to watch her while I was signing paperwork! Overall I am very satisfied with the service provided and my house being sold. I feel Gene helped me get the best deal possible and my house was sold in less than two months. I have already recommended him. As a seller, I can honestly say that Gene will truly have your best interest in mind. His knowledge and expertise will make the difference. We do not see him as the person who sold our house but as a family friend.

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Calabasas, CA.

Gene is always friendly & professional. He exudes confidence so I didn't have any problem trusting his judgement. I definitely will keep him in mind not just for my own real estate needs but also that of my family & friends in the LA area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in El Monte, CA.

Gene Manners helped us sell a property in 2002. When the time came to sell our home we called on Gene to work with us once again. Gene did a phenomenal job representing us. He worked hard at negotiating with our buyer; we sold at asking price. Gene is a very professional man, who knows his craft well. He has a high level of honesty and integrity with regard to all parties involved. A pleasure to work with...again!

Showed home in 2013 in Glendale, CA.

We found Gene to be of the utmost professional. He is diligent, honest, reliable and very organized. When we emailed him a question, his response was always in a short time-frame. When he says he will contact you, you can be assured that the date and time will always be what he quotes. He made every effort to show us all the homes we were interested in and planned our outings to use our time wisely. His demeanor is very gentleman like and he has expert knowledge. If he does not know the answer to a question, he does not hesitate to seek advise from colleagues. He will not give you an answer just to appease you. Gene is truthful in his responses and he has excellent work ethics.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Pico Rivera, CA.

Very positive experience. Gene was very informatinve and helpful in our search for a home. He was willing to show us as many homes we wanted to see on any given day and it didn't matter what areas we were interested in. He was a no pressure Agent and that was very comforting and made for a less stressful experience.

Thanks RM for the kind words. We did look for a while--and in an increasingly tough market. But I think you landed the one that was the best of the lot. Hope you both are truly happy there for a long time. Gene

Sold a home in 2012 in Orange Avenue Junction, Irwindale, CA 91706.

I could not be more pleased having Gene Manners as our real estate agent. His knowledge and overall persistence met and exceeded all of our expectations. He was thorough in all aspects of both selling and buying a property. If ever I buy or sell another property I will definitely call Gene. If you have any concerns feel free to give us a call.

Thank you "Rosebud" for your kind review--and for choosing to both sell and to purchase through Help-U-Sell Advance Realty. It has been a pleasure. After all, not everyone appreciates the high degree of intelligence that your variety of humor reflects. (Perhaps we are members of a rather small club.) I think of you there in Montana during the many winter days when we have weather in the 70's. All the best. Gene

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $300K in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.

Gene was referred to my wife and I through a friend. My friend's family has used Gene with 2 of their real estate transactions, and it's obvious why. Gene was very active with the short sale of our house, which resulted in finding a buyer within 4 days. Just like my friend, my wife and I are going to seek Gene for our future realtor needs. I would recommend Gene to any of my family or friends, for sales or purchases. Thank you Gene for helping us.
