Bought a home in 2013.

I've had the opportunity to work with Alison and Ren in both capacities, buying and selling. Having worked with other reputable realtors, I can attest, with firm conviction, this duo is unparalleled in the industry. Both Alison and Ren blend tenacity, patience, assertiveness and strong acumen to deliver results. Lastly, and most importantly, this team knows how to build trust with their clientele and enrich an experience that may otherwise be daunting and overwhelming.  More Less

Sold a home in 2013.

I listed my condo in Marina del Rey with Alison Betts after much research of local agents. What I appreciated right away about Alison was her casual non salesman approach. This made me comfortable during the stressful process. Maybe its the mid western girl in her that takes the time to say hi and thank you to everyone. A departure from the average Angelino and sales person.

She took the time to understand my needs and expectations and then tempered them with the current real estate climate. Her even keel demeanor made me comfortable with our asking price and during negotiations. When issues arose with the property she had an extensive list of resources from which to rectify the problem. I was really impressed with the contacts she has in the banking community and local businesses.

But her true soul is evident when she still touches base with me a year later to see how my family and I are doing. I would list my home or buy another home from Alison in a heart beat!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.85M in Mar Vista, Los Angeles, CA.

Alison and Ren did a fantastic job helping get our home ready for sale - so good that it sold the first day it was listed, at a far higher price than we expected. They also did an excellent job negotiating the fine points of deal. It was pleasure working with them. Highly recommended.
