Team reviews

We listed our condo in Long Beach with Scott to find a rental tenant. Scott found us a corporate tenant who has been with us for three and a half years paying what we believe to be top of the market rents. We've always found Scott to be responsive and helpful with communications between ourselves and the tenant. We would highly recommend Scott to anyone needing help in the Long Beach area.

Bought a home in 2014 in Dolley, Cerritos, CA 90703.
Primary point of contact: Ray Miramontes

I am the type of person that performs extensive research prior to making any type of decision. So when it came to searching for a realtor, I was even more critical than usual given the importance of purchasing a home. Throughout all of my research, Ray from the Kato Group was constantly being mentioned, and for good reason: he is exceptional. I can comfortably say that exceptional, or any other superlative for that matter, would fall short of how amazing of an experience it was working with Ray when searching for our first home.

Ray is everything you want in a realtor. He is very knowledgeable of the market, great at communicating and making himself available, thorough, a tireless worker, personable, honest, and caring. My fiancé and I don’t have the most flexible work schedules, but Ray was able to accommodate both of us. Whether it was 8:30 in the morning or 8:30 at night, Ray would make it work with us. There were many times where he had to show the same house twice because one of us was not available the first time around.

During our house search, which lasted about 5 months with Ray (our search criteria evolved many times during that timeframe), Ray would call or text every day to give an update on new listings, ask if we had any questions, or just check in even if there were no new listings. His communication is superb and he makes you feel as if you are his only client, even though his services are highly sought after and utilized (and rightfully so). Even after closing on our home nearly two months ago, he still calls and asks us if we need any help, have any questions, or checks on how we are doing in general.

The qualities we appreciated most about Ray are how he is supportive, caring, and honest. Even though our search criteria evolved many times during our search, Ray was always upbeat, respected our decisions, and never wavered in his effort to provide us outstanding service throughout the entire process. When it came to making a decision on whether or not to put an offer on a property, he never forced us into making a decision. What he did do was provide us with all the information necessary in order for us to make our own well-informed decision. If we asked for his honest input on a property, he would provide an honest answer. When we wanted to have additional inspections performed during escrow, he coordinated everything and made sure we had piece of mind prior to finalizing the deal. It is evident that he prioritizes his clients’ happiness and well-being over making a quick deal. That is why it is no surprise that Ray and the Kato Group are so highly-rated.

Ray, Scott (the founder of the Kato Group – he was an absolute pleasure to work with as well) and the Kato Group are a first-class service and I can’t recommend them enough. Whenever it comes time to buy another home or sell our current home, Ray and the Kato Group have already earned our repeat business. If you give them the opportunity, I am confident they will earn yours as well.

Sold a home in 2011.

with the real estate market as low as it's been, you want an agent who has your best interest in mind who will treat you with integrity and not someone who is just telling you what you want to hear to look out for their best interest. scott and his kato group team did treat me as if i was their only client and they were very responsive to my questions throughout the process. this was one the most seamless if not the best real estate transaction i have dealt with. i couldn't of felt more comfortable with my transaction. i would highly recommend scott and the kato group for your next real estate transaction. i know i will be a return client.

Working with both Scott and Jessica as our agents was an extremely positive experience. They were knowledgeable, helpful thorough in our home search. They helped to make the process as smooth as possible. On numerous occasions, they were quick to set up viewings of listings at a moment's notice and helped our family find the perfect home. I would highly recommend their services.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $700K in Seal Beach, CA.

I received top notch service and expertise with Scott and Jessica. My questions were answered quickly and honestly. It is hard to find professionals with such integrity and knowledge. I would recommend them to anyone who needs an agent and feel comfortable knowing they are in good hands. Scott and Jessica continue to provide me with excellent service and answer my questions about my area and the market. When I am ready to make another move, I don't have to search for an agent, I already have a great team!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $375K in North Long Beach, Long Beach, CA.

I highly recommend using the Kato group if you're selling your home. I used them and was very pleased with the outcome. They helped me sell my house for the price I wanted to sell it for and in a short amount of time. The Kato group's aggressive online marketing strategy is one of the biggest benefits they offer. If you want to sell your house and get the maximum amount of exposure, they can do that. From the beginning to the end of my sales process, the agents at the Kato group exceeded all expectations.
