Ratings & Reviews

Shawn was absolutely fantastic. He helped my husband and I purchase our dream home. We were first time home buyers entering into a very hot market in the beach cities. As you can imagine, we were very daunted by the process and the stories of low inventories, all cash offers, multiple bids... the list goes on! Shawn was patient with us and acted as a trusted ally throughout the home buying process, which is what every home buyer wants to find in an agent. You want someone representing your best interests and not just the deal. <br/><br/>During the initial stages of the process, Shawn helped us find listings that would suit our picky tastes and walked us through the available tradespace given multiple bid situations. Initially, we had no idea how many different aspects of an offer were up for negotiation and Shawn helped us craft the right offer given our risk preference and desire to be competitive. <br/><br/>Aside from being an expert on the process, Shawn was extremely committed to us as clients. In one instance he was on vacation in China when we needed to put in an offer. When we called him, he took a pause from his vacation to make sure our offer was submitted on time - despite the time difference and plans he made with his family. I think that speaks volumes for Shawn's work ethic and concern for his clients. Going the extra mile is an understatement!<br/><br/>After we found out home, he made the process simple. One aspect that I particularly loved was how Shawn used docusign. This service allowed us to sign the plethora of documents electronically and limited the drain on our time, which is something I valued immensely. He also made sure we had all our loose ends tied up so we were able to close on time and without issue. Further, since we were first time buyers, we needed the extra hand holding. As such, Shawn was extremely helpful in answering all of our questions and made sure our minds were at ease.<br/><br/>We just moved in and are loving our home! We could never have done it without Shawn and his expertise - many thanks!

Bought a home in 2012 in Manhattan Beach, CA 90266.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Shawn on the sale of this property, in which he was the listing agent and we were the buyers. He was honest, dependable and very responsive. Shawn went the extra mile to put this deal together. His professionalism and outgoing personality during escrow were enlightening to us. We appreciate having the opportunity of working with Shawn and look forward to working with him again. Now the only problem is waiting to move into our dream home!

Sally, you're the best! I am so happy you got that home. It was great working with you and your father, and I am thrilled it all came together in the end.

Found a tenant for a Multiple Occupancy home in Manhattan Beach, CA.

the rental business seems to have changed in the last few years. people don't drive along the street looking for signs as much as in years past. and not so many seem to use the rental sites. i was experiencing a low volume of potential renters for my Strand apt. until I signed with Shawn and suddenly I had plenty of possibles. i can only guess the the more upscale tenants tend to search through realtor multiple listings. Shawn's gracious, honest and patient manner I'm sure was helpful and both tenant and owner could feel trust in him
