Team reviews

I would recommend Courtney to anyone in the Los Angeles area. She was forthcoming regarding the potential and real drawbacks of the subject property, and worked hard to ensure that all documents, and disclosures were provided in a timely manner, and sign-offs were obtained. While Courtney was not as knowledgeable as I may have expected regarding properties under Rent Control in LA County, she made up for it by supplying me with information, links to the rent control website, and taking a pro-active stance in representing me to the seller (she was both the buyer and seller's agent in this case) in negotiating monies credited to me for some unanticipated additional costs due directly to rent control. I am overall very pleased with the outcome in general, and with Courtney, in particular.

It was a pleasure to help you with this property! It's true - rent control in LA is a tricky thing, and I always defer to the appropriate resources, the source of the best information. I hope you and your daughter enjoy the space for many years to come!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $650K in Glassell Park, Los Angeles, CA.

Courtney is our go-to real estate broker and wouldn't use anyone else. I highly recommend her. She goes the extra distance to save deals from falling apart; be an advocate for her clients and get the best price possible on a house.

Not only did she help us buy a bank owned property with incredibly tight lending standards in place but 18 months later she helped us sell that house for top dollar after we renovated. So we have seen Courtney excel on both sides of the deal.

Her marketing skills are second to none. She helped us create a polished look when we put our house on the market and put together an incredible marketing package including a pricing strategy, custom website, professional photos and open houses that drew masses of interested buyers.

Hands down the best!

Bought a home in 2014 in Highland Park, Los Angeles, CA 90042.

I can't imagine buying a house with any one other than Courtney. She is everything you want in a realtor: extremely knowledgeable of the market, a savvy negotiator, open to her clients' ever changing whims and a bull when you need one. She almost makes you not want to find your dream home because then you'd have to stop hanging out with her all the time.

Bought a Multiple Occupancy home in 2013 in Glassell Park, Los Angeles, CA.

Courtney is absolutely the best! She helped us find an incredible investment property, negotiate it and close it in little over a month ... and over the winter holidays no less! She is incredibly knowledgeable, takes time to explain the process, she is charming, funny, energetic, enthusiastic, professional and diligent. She helped us throughout the process and continues to check in with us even after escrow. We really can not recommend her enough.

Bought a home in 2014.

Can't imagine a better agent. Always available to answer questions. Ambitious and on it all the time, not afraid to meet difficult requests. Seem to love her job based upon being really good at it and enjoy helping people get the home situation they aim for.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $600K in Glassell Park, Los Angeles, CA.

Working with Courtney was one of the best decisions I made in my house hunting experience! Within days of switching realtors, I had an accepted offer on a great house in the area I wanted. From then on, Courtney helped ease my mind every step of the way until we closed a month later, and she is still helping me wrap up some details. Courtney is an Ace. I recommend working with ACME very highly.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $500K in Crenshaw, Los Angeles, CA.

This review is long overdue.... I contacted Courtney to help us purchase our next home. We had opened escrow on the sale of our home and only had 40 days to find another home and close escrow. I was very nervous about finding a place given our narrow time frame, limited budget and competitive market. However, Courtney assured me that it was very possible. Within a week we checked out a dozen properties with Courtney and made an offer on the perfect house. There were 2 other offers the seller was working with. Thanks to Courtney's persistence and schmoozing with the selling agent, our offer was accepted. Then came the home inspection. The seller's had listed the property as is, however Courtney once again was able to work her magic and get the plumbing updated PLUS $10,500 in closing costs!! AMAZING!! In order to receive the full credit of $10k, we would need to have closing costs totalling at least that much which our loan officer assured as that we did. However, at the close of escrow the closing costs dropped by $3k and the credit was lost. Once again, Courtney takes hold of the situation (this is after the house is now ours) gets the Escrow company, Bank and Seller involved and gets us the balance of the credit!! AGAIN AMAZING!! After a month and a half of living in our house, the waterline breaks so I email Courtney just to find out if it's OK for me to contact the seller's agent directly. Off course, being the go-getter that she is, she takes over and manages to convince the seller to pay for the replacement of the waterline. She definitely went above and beyond of what was expected. It feels like we had every obstacle imaginable thrown at us, however, thanks to Courtney, and not only her extensive knowledge of real estate, but also her ability to act quickly, we were able to overcome them. We are truly grateful for all the hard work Courtney and her team put in to get us our home.

Bought a home in 2013 in Highland Park, Los Angeles, CA 90042.

Courtney was such a huge help and a pleasure to work with. As first-time home buyers, my husband and I really did not know what we were getting ourselves into. Courtney was so patient to explain the whole process to us, would check in with us regularly to see how we were doing, and was extremely responsive. She was also extremely familiar with NELA, and even introduced us to local favorites. When we put in an offer on our now-home, she really fought and advocated for us. The seller's agent even notified us that although we did not make the highest offer on the house, he and the seller selected us over other potential buyers because Courtney was so professional and assured him we were sincere in our interest. Courtney was truly a blessing to work with, and I doubt we would have gotten our home without her.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $750K in Los Feliz, Los Angeles, CA.

Working with Courtney and her team was an incredibly easy and enjoyable experience given the challenging LA housing market.

From beginning to end, Courtney made us feel like we were her only client. Her expertise and knowledge of the NELA market helped us identify homes that fit our needs and her familiarity with other agents gave us an edge when things got hairy with the bank, inspectors, or sellers.

We couldn't have been happier with the process and would highly recommend Courtney and Acme to anyone who wants a level of service that feels personal and custom to what you might be looking for. When we move, we'll definitely be using Courtney again.

Bought a home in 2012 in Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA 90004.

She is AMAZING. I logically know that she takes on more than one client at a time, but it NEVER felt that way. Both Courtney and Andrew were informative, responsive, patient, and knowledgeable. They made a potentially stressful and scary situation so fun and exciting. I almost want to sell my new house and search for another one so i get the joy of working with them again. Really , Really above and beyond
