Team reviews

Hiring Simon as our listing agent was the best decision we've ever made in real estate! He stayed on top of things, guided us through the real estate forms and made helpful suggestions. We've owned and sold 6 homes previously and have always used listing agents that charge 3% commission. In every case, as soon as the house appeared on the MLS a buyer would contact their agent to see it and we would be under contract within days. The listing agent didn't have to work at selling our home, but received a huge commission anyway. We decided to try something different this time, and it paid off! Going with Simon saved us $18K ! At Simon's suggestion we offered buyer's agents 2.5% commission. We paid Simon a flat fee of about $600 to put our home on the MLS ( and other popular online sites ), put a sign in the yard and a lockbox on the door. The first day on the MLS a buyer came to see the house and made us a full price offer that evening. Simon made several suggestions to improve the contract in our favor ( things we never would have thought of). Throughout the escrow process, Simon stayed on top of everything and kept us informed of the progress with almost daily calls and emails. We were not expecting so much attention since his commission is only .0034% . We can honestly say that we have never had an agent work so hard for us at any price! One final thought, we are so glad we did not opt to sell by owner. The (many!) real estate forms are so confusing, we would have been lost. What a relief that Simon was there to handle all of the paper work! We are telling all of our friends and family to use Simon Mills for all of their real estate needs.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.25M in Palos Verdes Estates, CA.

I was the trustee of my parent's house in Palos Verdes Estates and I interviewed several local real estate agents before deciding to hire Simon. My experience taught me that most agents are pushy, salespeople who really seem to have only their own interests at heart. Immediately Simon seemed different and he was! Simon is on your side and he will negotiate on your behalf in a very smart and logical manner. He is very easy to work with and does a fabulous job executing all paperwork. The house was on the market only about 8 days before we had four offers. Simon handled everything like a pro. I agree with the previous reviewer's opinions. He is the best!

I call Simon my angel. He helped me get my home sold as easily and smoothly possible under very stressful divorce circumstances. He was always responsive, calm and an excellent negotiator. He is the best out there. Thank you Simon. Miranda

Sold a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $375K in Sherman Oaks, Valley Glen, CA.

Simon is one of a kind. Knowledgable. Forward thinking. Honest. Looking out for his clients in every way. We saved around $6k going through his sellers program. That's money we will put toward our new home. Our deal had many interesting twists & turns from the buyers' side but Simon had our best interests protected & put pressure on them as needed. Looking forward to working with him again. Thank you.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.8M in Manhattan Beach, CA.

Simon Mills of Mills Realty did an absolutely outstanding job for us in selling my deceased elderly parent’s home in Manhattan Beach. Through his negotiations we ended up getting top dollar for this home at $1,780,000. He saved us at least $40,000 in commission, not to mention the extra $68,000 we gained in negotiations on the final sales price. Along the way, over several months, there were many tremendous obstacles having to do with an attorney buyer who appeared to be well qualified on paper, but played games, stalled and revealed himself as a person without integrity, honesty or ethics who delayed the sale. During this time Simon Mills handled all of the communications and negotiations with this first buyer in a firm, honest and professional manner. Simon went the extra mile by consulting with the Association of Realtors in obtaining legal advice on this unusual issue. Although Simon and I tried to deal with the first buyer in an honest and straightforward manner it finally became clear that the first buyer proved over and over that he was not to be believed or trusted. Once we reached the same conclusion about the first buyer, Simon Mills found another buyer who quickly consummated the sale and escrow smoothly within days. I think that it is good to know that Simon can not only handle the “easy sales”, but the difficult ones as well. Now, I have re-hired Simon to help me purchase a property for my son who has some disabilities and I am confident that Simon can accomplish my goals in finding the right property at the right price for my son.

Working with Simon Mills was a pleasure. By promptly returning phone calls and emails he made the home selling experience quite simple for me. He kept me informed every step of the way. I highly recommend Simon Mills for your next real estate transaction.

Simon Did a great job selling our house. We saved over $14000. using Simon instead of a traditional broker, that type of savings speaks for itself. Simon was very responsive to all calls and emails as well.
