Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $375K in Granada Hills, Granada Hills, CA.
We were looking for a "fixer upper" in the Granada High district. They found us a house that we could afford, could add on to that ALREADY had re-done bathrooms and kitchens. It was perfect for us. They helped us through the negotiation price and helped to pay less than I would have. They were a terrific support all the way through the escrow process. I highly recommnend them.

I've worked with poor agents and good agents, but Steve Goldbaum is the best of the best. Besides being friendly, upbeat, and energetic, he knows, real estate and stays on top of every detail. He's reliable and keeps you informed every step of the way.
Above all, Steve has true integrity. He talks about integrity a lot, which anyone can do, but in my case he backed up his talk with action. The $2000 dollar's I was supposed to get back out of escrow somehow vanished; Steve had promised it to me, so he paid me out of his own money -- I sure hope he got reimbursed by his company.
Teri and Steve Goldbaum were the perfect agents to represent the sale of my home. In fact they had the daunting task of selling two homes for me within a very short time frame. Teri’s keen eye for helping me prepare and present my homes in the very best light possible made all the difference in reaching our goals. She was able to communicate a clear understanding of the selling process both with respect to the paper work and the psychology of keeping all parties focused on the tasks at hand.
Steve’s understanding of the complex southern California realest market made it possible for him to price my homes precisely where they needed to be. His negotiating skills enabled me to receive an excellent value for my homes and to remain out of the emotional roller coaster that often comes with the sale of property.
I can say without any hesitation that should the need arise I will use their real-estate services again and again. Furthermore, I highly recommend Teri and Steve Goldbaum to anyone looking for excellence in real-estate salesmanship.

While scoping out communities that might fit our needs, my fiance and I met Steve during one of these open house marathons we did. Steve happened to be running one of the open houses and spent some time talking to us. Instead of trying to sway us to become his clients, he instead asked about our history together and how we came to look in that particular part of San Fernando Valley. He would go on to encourage us to look at additional surrounding areas and endorse the multi-cultural diversity that was to be found in SFV.
I can't remember if he asked us to call him when we were ready to commit to a home search. However, I know I wanted to make sure I had his card in case we did decide to find a home in SFV. Of the many realty agents we met on those marathon open house weekends, Steve never made us feel like we were just another potential commission.
His partner and wife, Teri, would do the bulk of the on the ground work. She would send us potential homes to review during the week and then set up appointments for the weekend. She loves looking at homes as much as the buyer, so it's really fun if you think HGTV House Hunters is an appealing way to spend an evening. She also has a very sharp eye for home care maintenance issues and the overall care the home has gotten from the previous owners. She is very mindful of the safety, investment potential and correct fit of a home for a given buyer.
And when the deal is coming together, both Teri and Steve are in the game to win. They are very strategic in their ability to tailor an offer to maximize success. They have always been responsive and proactive. And as you can imagine, home buying and home selling can be an extraordinarily emotional experience. They seemed to have been able to deal with that emotional roller-coaster with aplomb.
I would highly recommend their services. Sometimes, finding a good realtor is like looking for your significant other. You do have to find a way of coming together and working together. No matter how proficient, if you can't get in sync with a partner to make the largest purchase of your life, then you should stop to think what you are trying to achieve. Steve and Teri met those expectations and we are very pleased overall.

We had a great feeling about Teri and Steve from the first moment we met them! Before we did anything they sat down with us to listen to our needs and wants. They knew all the right questions to ask. They were then able to point us in direction we needed to go. The very first house they showed us met all the criteria we were looking for, it was our dream house. We signed the contract that very day.
Since then we have worked with Teri and Steve several times, each time they anticipate our needs and have always exceeded them. Never have we received more professional or complete service from any real estate agent. They are the only agents we will use.

Teri and Steve are absolutely amazing – not only are they experts in what they do, they are incredibly thoughtful and go the extra mile. They made the short-sale process an easy one and guided me the entire way. And if that wasn’t enough, they loaned me a moving truck. I cannot tell you how grateful I am to have had them on my side. I would highly recommend them and look forward to working with them in the near future!

Teri and Steve Goldbaum are exceptional realtors and their character is above reproach. They are honest, extremely hard working, organized and very attentive during and after the real estate process. They are very skilled negotiators and even managed to negotiate a lease back for us from a very difficult buyer. Teri and Steve worked with us as both buyers and sellers and we will engage them again on our next real estate transaction. We highly recommend Teri and Steve Goldbaum for your real estate needs.

Teri & Steve are a fantastic team. They helped us sell our first home and buy our second home. We were selling our house during a "sellers market" when many agents were flooded with clients and making handsome profits. We interviewed several agents before Steve & Teri and each seemed bored, uninformed, and over satiated with the money they were making in a sellers market. When Steve & Teri came over to meet with us and saw our home they were able to appreciate the love and effort we had put into improving it. They were knowledgable, provided sound advise and strategic thinking, in-touch with our local real-estate market, pro-active in marketing our property, always available to answer our questions/concerns, along with sharp negotiation skills. They sold our home for a sizable profit. When we bought our second home it was after the real-estate bubble pop. This was a very difficult time for real-estate purchases. This is when we got to see Steve & Teri's true "metal" because this deal was so complicated and on the brink of foreclosure with two different lenders involved that it took six months to close. Steve's zen master tenacity and drive to figure out how to make this deal work was outstanding! Teri's steady grasp on the mountain of documents & information required in this process was reassuring and provided the calm necessary in a very unpredictable transaction. Steve & Teri interfaced with the lenders consistently and applied their sharp negotiation skills to get all parties involved in agreement. They pulled-off a miracle in the most difficult real-estate market. What a huge accomplishment! Steve & Teri are fearless, honest, committed, savvy and have tremendous integrity in their work ethics. Steve & Teri will forever be our real-estate agents. We trust them & believe in their abilities. Much Gratitude from the Buratti Family.
Found a tenant for a Condo home in Chatsworth, Chatsworth, CA.
They are exceptionally wonderful. Words cant describe how helpful, knowledgeable, trustworthy, friendly, etc they are. I had been working with a few different agents in 2009 for almost a year before I was reffered to Steve and his wife Teri in late 2010. My 1st day out with Steve looking at about 10 different homes, I found the perfect one and closed escrow a month later thanks to all their hard work and research. I have since bought another home and have rented out my 1st home with of course the wonderful help of Steve and his wife Teri. They have been so great and helpful. I have and will continue to absolutely recommend them to everyone that I know.
