Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Lakewood, CA.
Primary point of contact: Edgar Rangel

I could not rave enough about Edgar Rangel and his team at Scott Kato. He was not pushy, listened to my likes and was constantly on the look out for properties for me and my family. We thought the process would take much longer, but now we are in our new house and loving it.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $575K in Redondo Beach, CA.
Primary point of contact: Ray Miramontes & Noel Hernandez

HANDS DOWN THE KATO GROUP HAS SOME OF MOST COMPETENT AND PROFESSIONAL EMPLOYEES IN THE INDUSTRY!! I will admit when I first worked with them I was hesitate and doubtful that they would be able to help me. Like most other realtors I figured they were shady and trying to rip me off to make a buck. That was definitely not the case. Not only were they on point, but they consistently followed up and kept me motivated throughout my search. Noel Hernandez was awesome from the start and linked me up with her partner Ray Miramontes. When I finally found the home that I loved, I was competing with multiple potential buyers for the same home! I felt like I was part of the Hunger Games trying to survive! But Ray’s assertive and aggressive strategy made the odds in my favor!!!! I LOVE MY HOME!!! Til this day, Ray still answers questions for me. Oh, and their boss Scott is cool too!! (Scott you need to give Ray & Noel a raise!)

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Wrigley, Long Beach, CA.
Primary point of contact: Ray Miramontes

Ray Miramontes helped me with my purchase transaction. Ray was very helpful and went out of his way. There are a few outstanding items to be resolved from my home purchase, but Ray has been very proactive in facilitating the work and communication.

Ray Miramontes was really helpful in finding my new place. When I spoke to him the first time he made me feel comfortable after he explain the process of buying a property. Since I was a first time buyer. I will go back to Scott Kato in a heartbeat. They are professional, responsible and even a little aggressive when negotiating for me.

Bought a home in 2014 in Clearwater, Paramount, CA 90723.
Primary point of contact: Danielle Hernandez

We recently (9/30/14) closed on a SFR in Paramount. We were represented by Ms. Danielle Hernandez from the Kato Group. My deal turned out to be somewhat complicated but everyone at the Kato Group, from beginning to end, was very responsive and above all, very patient with us. Ms. Hernandez was very professional and knowledgeable and helped us find a very nice place that we now call home. Even though this was our second home, it was quite a learning experience. Thanks for sticking with us, I know we were difficult at times.

Ray Miramontes helped me find a condo in Long Beach. I was really impressed with his dedication and responsiveness. He kept in touch constantly, by phone and e-mail, to answer my questions and keep me updated on what was going on throughout the buying process. I won't hesitate to recommend him to anyone who needs an energetic and competent agent.

Bought a home in 2014 in Leffingwell, East La Mirada, CA 90604.
Primary point of contact: Ray Miramontes

My experience with the Scott Kato group was great! Everyone in their staff were always available to answer all my questions. Since this was the first home I bought I was nervous and somewhat scared. They made this process nice and less stressful and got me my home in two months!

Did not respond to my inquiry in Belmont Heights, Long Beach, CA 90814.

I emailed kato months ago and only received an automated response. Then I was added to a database and received market updates but no direct response to my query. As I was out of state at the time, I felt like nobody in the group wanted to bother. I see from other ratings that Scott Kato has a strong clientele, so perhaps if I was in Long Beach at point of query things would have turned out differently.

Hi Holly, My name is Scott Kato, partners at the Kato Group. I looked in our system and I noticed you registered on our website on July 7th at 5:37 am, and I am also showing we replied July 7th at 5:40 am. The property you inquired on was sold back in June and we asked if we could help you identify another home, but we never received a response. According to our notes, it also looks like you were interested in leases which we don't specialize in, but could refer you a property management company. I am glad you found an agent who was able to service your needs and I am sorry we fell short of your expectations.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.35M in Seal Beach, CA.
Primary point of contact: Jessica Panzica

It was great to have Jessica Panzica from The Kato Group as our realtor to purchase our dream home in Seal Beach. Jessica was very knowledgeable of Seal Beach and Long Beach which was very helpful to us as we were relocating from South Orange County and were not aware of how the neighborhoods within the cities differed. Jessica helped us tremendously through the entire process (as well as continued to help us with an escrow issue after we closed). We definitely recommend Jessica and The Kato Group to others looking in the Seal Beach/Naples/Belmont Shore area.
