Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $900K in Yorba Linda, CA.
We were going to use Lars only to list our current home as he had sold the same model in our neighborhood very quickly. As we missed the "sales season" we put off selling until this spring and felt no pressure from Lars to hurry the process and he actually supported our decision to put off listing for several months.

During our wait I contacted Lars to look at a few houses that were of interest even prior to our house going on the market and was pleasantly surprised at the way he critiqued each property for it's positives as well as it's negatives. One property we looked at he basically said " I don't think this is the house for you", a sentiment I fully agreed with!

This refreshing honesty lead us to forget the thought of using any other agent and not only listed our current home with Lars but used him to represent us for our new home. Both transactions went more than smooth and he sold our old place in 2 days for over the listing price!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $950K in Fullerton, CA.
Lars helped us buy our dream home. From the beginning, he focused his search on the types of homes we were looking for. He was very quick to respond to texts and emails. Unlike other agents, we never felt manipulated or pressured. We really felt like he got to know our family and what we really wanted and needed in a home.

We searched real estate websites daily and thought we knew every house on the market, but Lars surprised us by taking us to a home that had just come on the market and wasn't even listed in any of the public sites yet. We loved the house, and although it already had multiple offers after only a few days on the market, we put in an offer as well. Lars wrote a personal letter to the sellers on our behalf and it probably helped a lot in swaying their decision. Our offer was accepted and Lars helped us get into a home perfect for our family.

I would highly recommend him for any real estate needs.

I think the only negative of the transaction is that it occurred too quickly. I hope we get to hang out more soon, as I can't wait to see what you have done with the backyard! Lets connect soon! You guys are cool!

Lars got me and my girlfriend into our dream home & and we got it for less than list price!!! Lars was great to work with throughout the whole process, he is very professional and genuinely cares that you "love" your new home and not "just like it." He could of sold us a couple of properties that we liked and would have made a nice commission. But instead he dug down for a couple extra weeks to find us the perfect house for our needs. Lars treated us like people rather than a potential pay day. Even when he communicated with my girlfriend he provided her with accurate information and didn't insult her intelligence because she was a women. I did not fully appreciate Lars until I heard the horror stories my sister experienced in buying her home around the same time. The best thing about Lars was that we "held our hand" throughout the entire process and was there step by step at each milestone. After all who has the time to audit their realtor when you have a full-time job and other responsibilities.. lol..

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $825K in Yorba Linda, CA.
Everyone has a "real estate buddy" that we all ask questions to regarding selling/buying a home in hopes to get a "better deal"...well, you can ask them questions but when it comes to actually finding/hiring an agent that will help you buy/sell a home, Lars is the guy you wanna go with! He was both my buying and selling agent for my latest purchase and my experience with him has been nothing short of excellent!! I have already since referred him to my closest friends and he has helped to close on a purchase. We have become close friends thru this whole process and I am sure he can help with any real estate inquiries.

I'm so glad we got that house for you right when we did. Equity!! Also, if you only knew what you mean to my family and business. You are the referral KING, and the amount of confidence and trust to refer as many as you have speaks volumes. Thank you for your continued friendship and referrals! I wish I could repay the referrals, but I don't want to send anyone to the hospital by choice :-)

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $850K in Yorba Linda, CA.
We tried to sell our house for 2 years during a very bad time for real estate. After taking our house off the market, we met Lars and knew right away that when we listed our house again, he would be the agent we needed. We kept in contact for a few years...he was very patient with us!..and one day while driving around we found the house for us. Lars got our house on the market right away and sold it for us in 2 weeks this time!!! He also helped us get an amazing house that was wanted by many. We could not be more happy with our home! We not only have an amazing real estate expert in Lars, we also have a lifetime friend!!! Thank you Lars!!!

I definitely value our friendship more than being your real estate expert, so that's icing on the cake. You are a wonderful family who deserves the best, and I'm glad that giving my all gave you the best! Thank you for your love, thoughts, and referrals!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $425K in Orange, CA.
Lars helped me find and purchase a house. He is amazing! I had many people (including other agents) tell me how lucky I was to purchase my awesome house. They told me it was because Lars is soo good! Great communication, great follow up and follow through. He bends over backwards for his clients. I tell everyone I can to contact him, and he helps them all, even if they don't end up buying a house right now!

3 years ago he helped me find a house to rent. I totally scored on a great house in a great neighborhood for a great price! Lars went to battle for me (others wanted the house too) and we won!

I think the most fun we had was buying at roughly the same time, and remodeling at the same time! I enjoy being a part of that, and you being a part of ours!! Thank you soooo much!!

Lars is AMAZING! He never showed me a home that he wouldn't live in. He was flexible and accessible. He listened to my needs and did the footwork so that our house visits were effective. I would recommend him for sure!

When you hear the word Nordstrom, you think of customer service. True to the name, Lars Nordstrom is the epitome of customer service. My husband and I just bought our first house in March and are so glad we had Lars with us every step of the way. I think most realtors would've run the other direction from us, because I ask a LOT of questions. As this was our first house, there was a lot for us to learn. Lars was always patient with us and answered all of my questions promptly. He was extremely knowledgeable about standard sales, short sales and foreclosures, in addition to the different types of first-time homebuyer assistance programs. Starting in January, I think we physically looked at 11 homes (and hundreds more online). Lars was very knowledgeable about homes in general, and was able to point out many things in various homes (good and bad) that we might not have noticed otherwise. For the few homes we bid on, the unresponsiveness and lack of courtesy from the selling agents just made us appreciate him even more. We had selling agents who never responded, despite Lars repeatedly contacting them by phone and e-mail. (Thankfully the selling agent for the home we bought was great.) When we were outbid on a house at the very top of our budget, Lars encouraged us when we found a cheaper home because he knew that would be better for us financially. I'm sure many realtors would've pushed us to our max budget to get more commission. We ended up purchasing a foreclosure, which can be a difficult process. Despite the horrible escrow company chosen by the bank, Lars always kept our best interests in mind and worked extremely hard on our behalf to get escrow closed in a timely fashion. It's hard to find people with the same level of commitment and integrity as Lars. Everyone you know will probably recommend a realtor to you, but we are convinced that Lars Nordstrom is the best realtor out there and we recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.

You're right, you did have a lot of questions, but fortunately allowed me to find the answer if I didn't readily have a response. Also, I cracked up a lot with you guys, because you read through the lines and found humor in the gimmicks we would see. "Mr Clean lives here"... hahaha. Thank you for being so much fun!

Great at looking for what we were wanting and showing, suggesting, following up with the process - which we did over a 3-year period. Went above and beyond - in getting great financing Aiding afterwards with locksmith, bee killers, glass men - taking care of issues that we needed to have addressed. Very knowledgeable about electronic things needed appliances and where to get the best deal. Floor coverings referral which also lead to contractor - for changes needed and designer to make it look like we want it to look. Highly motivated and honest about all processes.

Your transaction was difficult for me, not because of the nature of the transaction, but because I was and still am jealous of what you got at the price you got!! Love you guys, and thank you for the referrals!

Lars worked with us on many offers and always supported our stance while providing recommendations and invalubale knowledge at every turn. He is very down to earth and will work at your pace. He was always more than happy to answer our endless stream of questions. We highly recommend him as we will be using him for all of our future real estate needs.

You guys are the best!! I have grown to feel more like a brother helping another brother and sister-in-law find a house, rather than a Realtor helping a lady from church's son. Thank you for letting me help you on the way!
