Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Compton, CA.
Don't let this guy's young appearance fool you - he has YEARS of experience!

After trying to work out a solution w/ my mortgage company for the longest time, Stuart came along, helped me short-sale my property and get out of a bad situation in no time! Finally, no more headaches from dealing w/ the bank!

He knows all of the tricks of the trade and knows how to get things done! If you want results and want to work w/ a true professional, Stuart is your man!

Many thanks for your kind words. This was a tough short sale, but we got it approved in a reasonable time frame. I hope that the relocation monies we were able to negotiate for you have been a blessing to your family.

Bought a home in 2014.
In the busy beginning of the year with flying bills all around, bells everywhere, we met this awesome agent, Stuart, fast-paced and really knowledgable. We are foreign buyers but worked totally fine with him and had an unforgettable experience with him. Definitely recommend to my friends and other family member. We bought in a rush but he worked hard and so hard that we finished everything in a week and got all paper done up front. And dear buyers and sellers, this is a hard-working master agent, don't miss him!

This was a fast transaction! The buyer is a Pilot living in China, so he had limited time in the US to take care of the transaction. He asked me to rush everything along, and we were able to close the file about a week after opening escrow. With a great team you can get great results, and everyone did what they had to do. Thanks so much for the kind review!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $275K in Covina, CA.
Stuart Santana is the best Realtor out there!!

I had been looking for a house for approximately two years with a different real estate agent and nothing productive was getting done. I felt as if I was not being heard when I expressed my needs and always felt forced to put offers in on homes which I felt did not meet my standards and which I knew I could not afford. I had enough and was referred to Stuart by a friend.

Immediately upon meeting Stuart I noticed a higher degree in professionalism well above any other realtor I had met with. Stuart spent lots of his work time and personal time helping me find the perfect place. He was always available for questions no matter the time of day or how small the question. Stuart never brought up any home which he knew I could not afford or would not like. He listened to exactly what I wanted and needed and would present that to me.

I was a first time buyer and Stuart made sure I felt comfortable with what I was buying and was able to make me feel confident I could trust him with such a huge responsibility. Stuart is such a great realtor and person that he and I are very good friends now. I think the one thing I and the rest of his clients have in common is that we gained a new friend in Stuart.

Stuart was so great that I referred him to my parents for a consultation and within minutes of me setting up a phone call, my parents had there issue resolved by Stuart.

In addition to having the strongest work ethic I have ever seen, Stuart is a very caring person and it shows in his work. I know that if you decide to go with Stuart you WILL NOT be disappointed and you WILL BE HAPPY with the home you end up buying.

Not only do you get a life long quality Realtor, you gain a good friend that cares about the house you buy...

Thank you so much for the kind words! I was so happy when we walked into this home, and both our eyes lit up because we knew we had found "the one." We put in a great offer, negotiated closing costs, and closed very quickly. You have a great home in a great neighborhood, and I am glad to know that you are very happy with your purchase.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 in Granada Hills, Granada Hills, CA.
Don't mean to sound cliché, but Stuart is simply the best at what he does.

My fiancé and I had been looking for a place since March. We had a different real estate agent who wasn't doing much for us. We were referred to Stuart in early July by a friend. And guess what? Today we received the keys to our new place!!!!!

Knowledge: Stuart has 15 years of experience and it showed during our interaction with him. His knowledge, experience, and training was essential in the success to finding our new place. Stuart understood our needs, which included not wanting to settle anywhere just because the house was a "steal". We made it really clear to him that we did not want to move any where near where gang members or drug users were in sight. Stuart worked diligently and paid attention to detail when it came to our concerns and questions. Stuart had deep knowledge of the real estate market and at times steered us clear of places which weren't worth putting an offer for. His honesty and integrity was much appreciated.

Communication:

Stuart was assertive and quick to respond to our many questions. He gave us his cell number, email, and office number. The majority of our communication was done through cell phone and at times text message. At times we had questions here and there and would text him. He was quick in his responses and if we requested to speak with him, he would immediately call us back. And when he was unavailable he would assure us he would call is back, at which point he would. Many of the documents we needed to sign or review were emailed to us, which made things extremely convenient. We were able to sign and scan documents and email them back to him.

Professionalism:

Well if I haven't painted a picture yet and you're the type that needs reassurance, then here it goes, YES, he's extremely professional. Lets just say, I will NEVER go with any other real estate agent. He will be our real estate agent for a very long time.

One last thing... He even paid for pizza for us to have and celebrate our new home. Not only did we appreciate his hard work and dedication, we felt like we made a new friend.

Bought a home in 2013.
Stuart took the time to make us feel welcome. As first time home buyers, he educated us and made my wife and I feel comfortable every step of the way. Stuart worked closely with us through all the mounds of paperwork and made the process fun. Plus, we could not have negotiated a better deal without him. He knows when to put his foot down.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Otay Mesa West, San Diego, CA.
Stuart went above and beyond his duty to find us our home. Stuart made himself available to us whether it was taking his time to drive down to San Diego multiple times, answer our questions (promptly I must add. I would send an email and he would respond within minutes) or fight on our behalf. He was always honest and would not let any of the people who were involved with the escrow process take advantage of us. This was a difficult transaction with the seller but Stuart remained calm and did everything he could to make this transaction close successfully.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Altadena, CA.
I think there is no other person like Stuart in real state property business. I am grateful to him for his exceptional assistance in selling properties. He easily sold my home on good price.If I was unsure of anything he explained matters to me where I felt comfortable asking for more information during the process of sale. His local knowledge in real state property is unbelievable.I would highly recommend working with him to sell/buy property. Thanks!

Thank you very much for the kind words! It was a pleasure working with your family during your difficult time. Divorce sales are always stressful, but everyone did a fantastic job. We sold for more than anyone thought was possible, and I hope the proceeds are a blessing for your next chapter in life.
