Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Lakewood, CA.

Earlier this year, my wife and I were in the process of moving and was debating if we should rent or purchase a home. We looked at renting first and we couldn't find a rental that suited our needs. We finally looked into purchasing a home and my wife found Helen while she browsing in the Zillow app on her phone. She called her on a Friday night and the next day, Helen called while we were out eating lunch. After our phone conversation, she called us back and wanted to show a property in Lakewood. Unfortunately, the first house that she showed us wasn't the one we were looking for. After searching for at least 10 houses in a span of 2-3 weeks, the last house she showed us was the one. It was a bank approved short sale and we all know short sales tend to be a long process even though it's bank approved. She did warn us about it but we still went for it and we closed in 45 days. Going back to how great Helen is. She is the one and only agent that helped us find our new home. She provided us with resources we needed during the whole purchase process. It's almost like a one stop-shop where she refers you to the right people may it be a mortgage lender or an electrician. She knew the area we were looking into very well and we were very lucky to have found. I can honestly say we found a great realtor but we also found a friend and an aunt for my son. It's been 5 months since we moved and she still visits us from time to time.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $275K in Anaheim, CA.

Not enough positive adjectives in the English language to describe Helen. Over the last several months my family and I have grown to love her and she is much more than our real estate agent. She guided us through the home buying process and connected us to the right people when the perfect home was found for my family of 6. She never pushed us into a house we didnt want and knew where our limits were. She also understood what we were looking for and in what area. The thing with Helen is that she knew when to be a professional and also knew that a human element needs to be present when dealing with home buying and home buyers. Its a great balance that she manages very well. Helen you are the best and you know we will be back! You are always welcomed in our home! Call Helen if you are wanting to buy a home. You will not be disappointed.

Sold a home in 2010 in The Plaza, Long Beach, CA 90815.

When it became clear that I was not going to be able to maintain my home as well as I like due to health issues, I asked Helen Najar to help me through this transition. Though homes had been artificially priced for the last few years, those same prices had plummeted by the time I decided to sell. On the other side of the coin, my home was in prime condition so I decided that regardless of the condition of the market, it was better to sell now.

With Helen’s help we planned and prepared the house for showing and while we were getting everything ready, she was pre-marketing to other agents.

I was amazed to learn from Helen that I had a serious offer for the house from a young couple the first day of an open house! After much work and negotiation between Helen and the buyers agent and the lenders involved (buyer’s parents and bank), they were able to buy the house and, I might add, for more than the originally listed price. There were times when we were met with obstacles that we thought would sour the deal, but each time Helen worked through them to keep us on track.

Of course, I needed to find a place for me to live after agreeing to their offer so Helen helped me find another place to buy – this time in Seal Beach. We looked at every property on the market where I wanted to buy and found the perfect place. The sale was handled in record time so that I was able to make changes to my new home while packing and moving out of the old home. It was a very smooth transition.

I would recommend Helen Najar to anyone interested in selling and/or buying a new home. She will always put her client’s interests and needs first.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $375K in City College Area, Long Beach, CA.

I partnered with Helen and bought a house on a short sale. We found the perfect house after looking for many months and found it in the neighborhood i wanted to live in. Helen relentlessly negotiated with the listing agent and lenders and watched over the whole process to make certain our offer stuck, escrow closed in time and i got the house. I was very impressed with her professionalism and negotiating skills. I have been in my house for exactly 2 years now and i couldn't be happier.

Bought a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $525K in City College Area, Long Beach, CA.

Helen is a wonderful realtor. She took my husband and I home shopping. We found a home after about a week of looking. She knew exactly what we were looking for. She has a great personality and I would love to work with her again.

Bought a home in 2006 in Cucamonga, Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730.

Helen Najar has made our experience in buying our first home amazing and extremely easy. We were very comfortable talking to her about our needs and she listened to us every step of the way. We looked in various counties of Southern California and we finally found our home in Rancho Cucamonga, Ca. We absolutely love it and are here to stay awhile for sure. Helen was very patient considering it was our first home and we really didn't know much about the process. She really went above and beyond in making sure this was what we could afford as well as what we wanted. That is why we are still living in our dream home and we couldn't ask for anymore than that! Thank You so much Helen Najar.....you really are a true star!

Bought a home in 2005 in Los Alamitos Junction, Stanton, CA 90680.

Helen helped us find our condo faster than I could have imagined. My husband and I needed to relocate quickly and Helen met that need with blazing speed. She also helped my son three different times - both sale and purchase! Helen continues to advise and has fabulous resources for expert advice. Helen was able to make recommendations for expert advice for our daughter who lives in Arizona.

Helen became a special family friend by going beyond what is required to be exceptional in real estate. She takes the time to understand what a customer needs and is willing to listen. Not everyone is able to do that but that's Helen!

Compassion, knowledge, professionalism and a willingness to go the extra mile! You'll be glad you worked with Helen Najar.

Bought a Condo home in 2009 for approximately $250K in Stanton, CA.

After looking for several months, Helen helped us close on a great townhouse. We opened escrow on the second business day after attending the open house. She helped us every step of the way, from the loan to arranging for renting back to the Seller. Thanks, Helen!

Bought a home in 2010 in The Plaza, Long Beach, CA 90808.

Great Service!!! Helen helped my wife and I find the perfect first-home in Long Beach. She had excellent knowledge of the neighborhood and was very good explaining to first-time home buyers the different parts of the process. She was able to negotiate very fair sales terms that I believe left both parties satisfied. Based on Helen’s sound strategic advice and unmistakable ethical standards I would definitely use her as our agent again.
