Wes Hankins was very efficent, effective, and a great communicator. I would highly recommend him for buying, selling, refinancing, and financing. He made the process easy and an overall great experience.
This man was a complete god-send and genius! Literally! My husband was deployed and so it was all left up to me to find and purchase our first home (gulp!). I had two nightmarish ordeals with two other agents found on here but when I contacted Wes and we spoke on te phone for the first time, it was a no-nonsense "let's get this done" kind of attitude. His time is precious and so is yours so he made it clear that he wouldn't lie or give you false hope or tell you to put an offer in on something of he didn't think you'd get it. He's a savvy agent and knows so much about the area he works in. ALSO uhmm if you tend to stress out easily this is your guy because he is a prompt responder to any questions. One time, it was coming down the the last couple days of escrow and I needed a whole bunch of stuff that I couldn't readily get and so at 9 o'clock AT NIGHT he gave me a call and explained it clearly. He really is a go-getter and my husband and I appreciated him so much.
Ours was a very bumpy escrow, through no fault of Wes. Wes was on top of every detail everyday navigating the deal or I don't think it ever would have closed. He has extensive knowledge of the local market and all details of the process and good relationships. His unique skill set of real estate and loans made his knowledge invaluable. Plus, he is a really nice guy!
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $250K in Murrieta, CA.
Let me start out by saying we were 1st time buyers and without Wes, probably would still be renting our life away. If you are looking for a 'no nonsense', 'cut to the chase', 'git 'er done' and brutally honest kinda guy,,,Wes is definitely your man. Not only did he hook up the real estate side, he executed our loan as well. 1 stop shopping. His financial advise, second to none...saved us 1000's. I appreciated him especially because I travel extensively. He was in contact with us even when we were in Europe. Nights, weekends, text, phone, in person...whatever it took to get the job done, he was there. The best part was he was dead on accurate on everything he said and did. I would (and have already) refer anyone to him. He is a breath of fresh air and just outstanding.

Wes helped me complete a very difficult and time consuming short sale of my home in Murrieta CA. This was a very difficult and emotional experience for me and my family. Wes really put his best effort forth and handled difficult negotiation with 2 seperate lenders, while helping us feel like there was hope for us to have resolution in this difficult situation. Wes really came through for us and the pressure of the process was made fairly easy.

Wes is an upfront and honest real estate broker. He listed and sold my house inside of four months. Wes answered all my questions and consistently got back to me within 0-24hrs. I would highly recommend using him.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Carlsbad, CA.
I purchased my home through Wes and was extremely happy with his personal attention to every detail. Everything went smoothly. He constantly updated me about the progress and always immediately returned my phone calls. I refinanced my house a year later and used Wes again. I would recommend him to anyone who wants honest, professional, reliable service. I will definitely use him again in the future.

Dedicated professional! Wes has helped me buy and finance my first home. I might have been one of his pickiest buyers, but he was able to find the right home and answer all of my buying and financing questions. Wes has also helped me refinance just recently and I couldn't ask for better. There are alot of real estate agents out there but if you're looking for a "Pro" then Wes can help you with all your real estate needs. I will choose Wes for all my future real estate transactions. Thanks Wes!

This was our first home purchase. We actually interviewed several other realtors first, two of them family. The decision to use Wes as our agent was the best thing we did concerning the purchase of our home. He is knowledgeable about the area and showed us a good selection of homes in the areas we liked and within our budget. We were very picky, but he was patient with us and answered all of our questions. Once we picked out our home Wes did what he does best. He went to work quickly and put in our offer. He kept us updated daily and really eased our minds by helping us understand the process. His hard work really paid off for my family. He found us a newer home with everything we wanted and more for $88 sq/ft. at a great interest rate! His work ethic is commendable. We also ended up using him to help us refi to an even lower rate. It was the icing on the cake. Wes goes the extra mile for his clients and we plan to use him for all of our real estate needs in the future.
