Ratings & Reviews

We were moving from Michigan and because of time restraints needed a proven performer who would listen to our wants and needs and respond in a timely manner. Finding Rachal was a gift! Her knowledge, experience and follow up was outstanding. We had never purchased a home without ever actually setting foot in it until after we had bought it. This purchase entailed exactly that. Rachel was our eyes and ears in the market from start to finish. She just didn't tell us everything we wanted to hear, rather she gave her honest opinions and we quickly relaized we need to follow her instincts and advice. She was gracious with her time and her perservenance to locate us a home in our time frame never waivered. <br/><br/>She did locate us a perfect home and videotaped the property for us. She negotiated a great deal for us and made sure everything came to fruition. We are confident that without her we could have never found this home. <br/><br/>Anyone that needs to buy a home in the San Diego market and doesn't consider her as their agent is foolish! Their only excuse should be that they didn not know who she is. If I have anything to say about that....they will!

She was great! Wonderful to work with, very knowledgeable and very patient. She helped us sell our house and buy a new one. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $750K in Santee, CA.

Rachell Lara is, in truth, the only agent I would ever trust with the most important purchase and sale I'll ever make. It is really scary and intimidating to choose the right agent when you are buying a new house or selling your old one because so many of them are not as swift and as knowledgeable as they claim to be. And because there is so much time and money that can be wasted, you don't want to make the wrong choice. She found me my dream house, even though I am the most annoyingly particular house shopper out there. And because she did such a good job of always being available for me, showing me houses that met my exact criteria, getting me in to see houses the second they became available, and helping me negotiate an affordable price that would entice the sellers: I just HAD to hire her 3.5 years later to sell my old house. Let me tell you, she is equally amazing as a seller. Her suggestions have saved me thousands of dollars and millions of headaches. Rachell Lara just makes things happen. I highly recommend her.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in El Cajon, CA.

Rachell is amazing at what she does! She listens to the needs of the buyer and works to find what you are looking for. She works through the whole buying process and is calm in the face of buyer anxiety and crazy questions. I would definitely recommend her if you are looking for a home!

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Lakeside, CA.

Rachell made my experience of purchasing my home very nice. I had endless questions and she was very prompt and professional with her answers. I would highly recommend her for all of your real estate needs.

Thank you Rachell!!!

Thank you so much for your review. I'm so glad we were able to find you a condo that wasn't even on the market that met all of your criteria including being FHA approved. Many condo complexes have lost their FHA approval making it even harder for FHA buyers to find a condo. Such a bonus that you didn't have to compete with other buyers to get it.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $450K in El Cajon, CA.

Rachell was referred to us by a neighbor friend. She was very flexible in setting up meeting times and explained everything clearly (we had a lot of questions as it was the first time we had ever sold a house!). Rachell did a great job explaining how we needed to stage the house and we had a full-price offer within 2 days of listing!! We found Rachell to be friendly, down to earth, and full of knowledge & she seems to know a lot of people! Great connections!! Rachell made the stress of selling a house MUCH less stressful! I would absolutely recommend her (and I have!) and if we move back to the San Diego area I would certainly have her help us find a new house!
