Showed home in 2009.
I have been looking for property a long time and Dhari has been available and so knowledgeable about real estate in general. She is smart, happy and cheerful. I have worked with other agents and not one of them compares. If you want a really positive experience looking for a home or business property, trust me, this is the lady to see. Alice McIntosh

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 in North Central, Pasadena, CA.
I write this review as I sit cozy in my sweet little home, my first, for which Dhari Thein was our masterful agent. To all friends, acquaintances and strangers, you should know that Dhari is the House Whisperer. When she walks into a home with you for a viewing, she is the medium between your heart's desire and the soul of the home. She'll tell you early on in the process, "When it feels like home, that's the one for you." Her number one priority is to make a happy match for you, and she won't be satisfied - and won't let you settle - until you own the keys to THE PERFECT HOUSE FOR YOU.

Dhari is completely on top of all the arcane, ever-evolving legalities and procedures in the realty business, and she was a patient hand-holder for us first-time buyers, from start to finish. She is also extremely thorough and responsive - nothing slips by her. We had a very difficult escrow, with many odd twists and turns, but she was our heroic advocate throughout, fighting for us all the way. No issue was too insignificant, esoteric or challenging for her to champion. And in spite of all the difficulties (any other agent would have abandoned us, I'm certain ), her upbeat, energetic attitude remained unflappable. Dhari is just plain good people to be around, the kind of person you hope to have for a neighbor when you move into your dream home.

Sold a home in 2008.
Dhari has assisted me with my real estate needs for many years. She is a terrific resource, knowledgable, personable, and an incredibly hard-worker. Most recently she sold my home in Altadena. Dhari was thorough and helpful throughout the process which can be very stressful. Dhari always impresses me with her attention to detail from her staging suggestions and marketing strategies to the sumptuous spreads she puts on for a brokers' open. Most importantly, Dhari's research and knowledge enable us to price our house appropriately. Upon accepting an offer, Dhari continued to assist us in the escrow process until closing. She is a gem!

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $600K in North Central, Pasadena, CA.
Dhari Thein was able to sell our house in a transitional neighborhood in less than 2 weeks in a down market year. Her print and website were beyond amazing. Many of our friends jokingly asked us "whose house is that" after visiting the website because it had never looks so good. Dhari really understands the selling process and made sure the paperwork process went smoothly. She also worked hard for our listing to show up on Zillow when it wasn't automatically picked up by Zillow from MLS. We had two open houses with nearly 200 visitors.

We interviewed a few other agents whose strategy was to price our house higher and hope the right buyer would come along. Dhari's strategy was to price it aggressively so that we don't chase the market price down. The idea was that if we priced it low enough, we might create a bidding war in the process. While we didn't get the bidding war, we most certainly didn't sit on the market for months, risking additional drops in housing prices. If you want to sell your house NOW, you should interview Dhari. We have already recommended Dhari to others with confidence.

Sold a home in 2011.
Dhari was extremely helpful in our endeavor to sell our condo. She was thoroughly prepared, did a tremendous job on advertising and helped us get a very fair price in a down market. Anyone would be lucky to work with her.

Sold a home in 2005.
Exceptional agent. I've worked with a number of agents and Dhari is the best by far. Her knowledge of the area, attention to detail, and negotiating skills are the best. She is honest with the client even if it means a lost sale. She got the best price on the house we sold and gave us excellent advice on the one we purchased.

It's important as an an agent to always disclose, be honest and have integrity. So, on that note, I have to reveal that this review was written by my Father-in-Law. It is still very appreciated but I want to let people know it may be a bit biased. However, I must say that I feel exteremly lucky to have in-laws that would take the time and write-in!

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $800K in Altadena, CA.
I have purchased and sold homes all over the US and I can honestly say that Dhari was by far the best agent I've ever had. To sell my California home in a down market within three days of listing was remarkable; I believe it had everything to do with her prep work before it hit the market. I would recommend Dhari without hesitation, she is the best!!

Helped me rent a Townhouse home in Altadena, CA.
Dhari has been phenomenal. Her knowledge and expertise in the entire real estate process is exceptional. She helped us through a transaction and made us feel confident in moving forward. She answered all of our questions and provided additional information that we didn't even know we needed at the time! She is prompt, thorough, and an expert in her field. We would highly recommend her services

Sold a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $775K in South East, Pasadena, CA.
Dhari's knowledge of every section, street, and block of Pasadena is unparalleled. We would not have found our house without her. Her longtime connections in the real estate community in the area mean that each and every available property is on her radar. If the house for you is out there, she will find it. She is also extremely patient and not judgmental looking at home after home (we looked at over 30!) to find the right place for you.

Sold a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $1.325M in South, Pasadena, CA.
Dhari is, in our opinion, unrivaled. She sold our house for us, and her marketing, PR and networking skills are truly amazing. And for buying, she tracks down every opportunity and is a tough negotiator. Plus, she's just a very friendly, fun and lively person to deal with. We are big fans.
