Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $650K in Calabasas Hills, CA.

I had an excellent experience with Steve Rifkin as my Realtor. Not only did he sell my Calabasas home in days, but he got the highest price for that model since 2007. Steve was professional every step of the way. His demeanor, knowledge of the area, and communication skills kept us informed through out, and made our transaction stress free. Yes... a real estate transaction stress free! After we sold our home, I used Steve to purchase a condo. I will use him again and again. Yelena

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $700K in Woodland Hills, Woodland Hills, CA.

Steve Rifkin, simply put, is amazing. I would highly recommend Steve and his services to anyone wanting a true professional. Steve went above and beyond to get our house sold fast, and for the most amount of money. I was very impressed with the 11 offers in 13 hours, and that we received a substantial amount of money over our asking price. Steve has wit, charm, intelligence, organization and is extremely calm under pressure. These are all great qualities that help make a deal run smoothly. The most important thing for me, in working with any professional, is that they are a person of their word. Steve told us everything he would do to SELL our house up front. Once we hired Steve, he did EVERYTHING he said he would do to get our house sold. Now that is a man of integrity.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $675K in Agoura Hills, CA.

When my husband and I decided to move abroad, we had many doubts and disagreements on how to go about selling the house. Fortunately, we both agreed that Steve Rifkin was the right person to represent us. We have known Steve to be a responsible, sharp Realtor; but equally important to us was Steve’s attitude, always reassuring, not pressuring us, as other agents are known to do. As a result of his efforts we had multiple offers immediately, and the house sold for over the asking price. The whole process moved smoothly and just about stress free because of Steve Rifkin's attentiveness and help. We highly recommend him! E & N Beltramo

Bought a home in 2011.

My wife and I had been looking in Calabasas for over 2 years. We contacted Steve Rifkin to be our agent. He is part of the Lupin Hill community, has great references, and knows the area well. The market has changed since the last time we bought property. We were surprised at how complicated real estate transactions had become. Steve really helped us through the process. He knows what he is doing and is very detail oriented. He always had our best interest in mind. When we were frustrated and wanting to pull our hair out, he was always there with reassurances and the glass is half full mentality. Looking back, Steve Rifkin really helped us get through this process, and I'm not sure any other agent could. Without a doubt I would use his services again. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone needing any real estate help. Sincerely Lyle and Coy Weiser.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $450K in Agoura Hills, CA.

We recently purchased a home through Prudential California Realty, and were treated to VIP service by our real estate agent Steve Rifkin. Steve is a true professional. He made our home buying experience comfortable and enjoyable. His low pressure approach gave us the confidence to ask the questions we needed answered. Steve was able to couple his genuine enthusiasm about helping us find a home, with his tremendous knowledge about fair market value in the neighborhoods we liked most. The result was the right home, at the right price, in the right neighborhood. We strongly recommend Steve Rifkin and Prudential California Realty to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. They are clearly top of the class when it comes to Southern California real estate. Kevin & Deb Kirby (& Hannah)

Bought a home in 2012.

Buying a new home can be daunting - especially in this market and for first time buyers like us. Steve Rifkin was there each step of the way helping us dot every 'i' and cross every 't'.

Our thanks to Steve for helping us into our wonderful new home!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $500K in Woodland Hills, Woodland Hills, CA.

Steve brought us our first offer within 48 hours of listing our home on the MLS. After the open house he held, we had multiple offers to choose from. Steve was very professional and responsive throughout the entire transaction. We could tell he was experienced in our market and he went out of his way to accommodate our schedules. We couldn’t have been happier with our experience.

Sold a home in 2011.

We listed our home with Steve. While we loved the place, there were several problems with the upstairs layout which made it a difficult sell. Through Steve's creativity and the help of fresh interior sketches, he was able to show prospective buyers different options. The place was sold within the first month and escrow closed 30 days later! We couldn't be happier with our choice of agents! Anne & Joel Kaplan

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in North Hills, Northridge, CA.

I was referred to Steve after encountering some frustrations with the agent I was previously working with. It was my first home and not only did I have many questions, I wanted to feel as if my agent was truly on my side. Steve went above and beyond the call of duty. From getting back to me right away, to re-arranging his schedule in order to accommodate mine and even following up months after the close of the sale, Steve showed that he truly cared. I would recommend Steve to anyone I know. Buying a house takes 100% dedication and having an agent that does the same, makes the world of a difference!

Bought a home in 2011.

We want to say how impressed we were with Steve Rifkin’s work in our recent home purchase. From astute market analysis during our search, to guiding us through a fairly complex purchase transaction, Steve was on top of the situation at every step. He sweated the details and navigated the process with intelligence and good judgment. He was a pleasure to work with, and we highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. Many thanks, Steve! The Lloyds
