Team reviews

I have used other real estate agents in the past, but after utilizing Nick as our agent I'm not likely to use anyone else. Through the entire process of locating a beautiful home, negotiating the price and terms, Nick was outstanding. His responsiveness is unsurpassed and was always professional and friendly. So, if you are looking for the right agent look no further and call Nick . . . you wont be disappointed.

Bought a home in 2015.

My husband and I use to live in Belmont Heights and would walk 2nd street a lot. DOMA has a location on 2nd street and in downtown Long Beach. We walked by and looked at the listings that were posted outside of their building. We are both first time home buyers and didn’t really know much about the process. I called DOMA and scheduled an appointment to speak with Nick Resendez and he asked if we wanted to speak to someone about the financial piece of buying a home. We said yes and he brought in a person to speak with us about that too. My husband was a little reserved about doing this because he doesn’t want to feel pressured or feel like he was to give his personal information away. From that meeting we were better prepared. We had a better idea of what we could afford and knew how we could get our finances in order. My husband enjoyed the appointment. It took us over a year and a half to find our home. This wasn’t DOMA or Nick Resendez’ fault; we were just taking our time. We weren’t in a rush. We would really look then we would get discouraged by what our money would buy us. We would stop and then we would start looking a little while after. During the process of looking for a home, we would call, text, or email Nick and say we found this house and wanted to look at it. From there we were able to look at the house within that week. The nice thing about Nick is that he didn’t put pressure on us to buy a house and he didn’t make us feel like we were wasting his time. We were up front with him and told him that we were causally looking. Even though we told him that, he didn’t seem less committed to us. We finally placed our first bid on a house in summer 2014. He didn’t pressure us into making a bid and he guided us through the process. He told us what to expect and he communicated with us through the back and forth biding and communication with the owners of the home. He gave us time to make sure we were comfortable with the decisions we were making. At this point in our search, Joy Houlihan, Nick’s partner came on board. This was a plus for us because now we had 2 agents to work with. If we wanted to see a home and one agent was busy, the other agent took us. We trusted both of them equally. It was also nice to get a male and a female agent perspective on things. Both agents were professional and communicated in a timely manner. We didn’t feel like we were left out to dry There were a couple of times, when both of them went to see a home with us. We put 3 offers on homes before we were selected for a home. From my understanding, 3 offers is not much. I’ve heard of other people that have put a lot of offers before they were selected as buyers. We placed a 2nd offer on a home around September then after a few days we found another home to look at. We absolutely loved the 3rd house we saw and ditched the 2nd offer. At that point, we were fully committed to the 3rd home. It’s true what they say…when you find a home you really like, you just know it. Nick and Joy connected with the seller’s agent (who was a pain to deal with) and we were the first people to see the home. We saw the home while the sellers were there, that was kind of nice. We went back and forth with the price. There were little hiccups with the deal; however, it was not on our end or had nothing to do with Nick or Joy. It was happened on the seller’s end and with their agent. It was a little tough because the seller’s were in escrow as we were in escrow. Even though it was not an ideal situation, Nick and Joy never had us worried and reassured us that everything was in control. We didn’t doubt them at all. We knew they were dealing with the seller’s incompetent agent. You can’t help that. Nick and Joy were always a phone call away and answered any questions we had. We truly enjoyed our experience with them and you will too. They are a great team. They won’t disappoint.  More Less
