I love what I do, and I hope it's reflected in the way I do business. I'm asked many times, "What is your secret?" For those of you who are wondering the same thing, I can only tell you to love what you do, do it with pride and enthusiasm, and always "be the best you can be".

When we get involved in a property, whether selling or buying, I develop goals and strategies, pursuing each transaction with the same enthusiasm and dedication as I have for the past 30+ years of business.  I am truly motivated to do the best we can and to represent our clients with the utmost integrity and service.

I am competitive by nature, and really enjoy "winning" for my clients.  That means making them as happy as possible with their new home, and striking the best deal we can for their benefit.

Ratings & Reviews

Buying your first home can be exciting, but can also be overwhelming with the amount of information that you need to track. Laszlo just helped me buy my first home, a nice Rancho Bernardo condo in Vista Del Lago. He made the process easy, providing just-in-time information at each step but also providing guidance and detailed explanations of the overall purchase and escrow processes. And anytime I had a question, he responded quickly and answered comprehensively, even late in the evening. And on top of that, he’s easy to talk to, well-mannered, friendly, and sincere. He really cares for his client, doing everything he can to provide a fantastic experience, which is exactly what I got from him. And he is knowledgeable when it comes to buying and selling property, because he’s got years and years of experience himself. During showings, he wouldn’t just rattle off the stats of the property, but instead would evaluate the build quality and pinpoint where certain problems were more likely to occur. He could even estimate how much certain materials would cost for renovations! And throughout the negotiation process, Laszlo predicted how the seller would react and we worked together to prepare our responses. The negotiation went exactly as scripted. He really fought for me so that I could get a better deal on the home, which is above and beyond what some other agents focused on collecting their commissions would do. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to any of my family and friends looking to buy property, as I’m confident they’ll get the same excellent service from him as I did. H.L.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $700K in Ramona, CA.

We were very pleased to work with Laszlo on the sale of our home. There are several reasons why we would strongly recommend Laszlo:

1. He is highly intelligent and laser focused. 2. His engineering background serves him well in compiling data and understanding what it says. 3. His software engineering background makes him very comfortable with leveraging all the online tools to show your home to potential buyers. 4. He tries to do the best for his clients. In our case as Sellers, he performed comprehensive market analysis, identified individual items which would modify the price up or down, and made a recommendation based upon meaningful data and judgment. But he sought our agreement on his recommendation. So it was a cooperative effort. 5. He has a very keen eye for design and understands how to leverage marketing tools. For instance he invested in high quality photographs and printed materials that were a differentiator. 6. His background in construction management is helpful in recognizing and understanding detail regarding quality of construction. 7. He loves the real estate process. His enthusiasm comes through. He has studied the process and demonstrated expertise and understanding of nuance items of which other real estate agents were uninformed. 8. He is a tireless worker. It seems as though he seldom rests. Every time we asked a question it seemed as though we received the answer later that day or with an e-mail with the answer late at night. 9. Negotiation is one of his strong suits. He understands the science of negotiation. 10. In our case he held open houses three straight weekends. He received multiple offers and, in our case, was able to negotiate a full price cash offer.

One cannot ask a Realtor to do more than he did for us. And we intend to maintain a long term relationship with him both socially and in business.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Ocean Crest, San Diego, CA.

THIS WAS THE FIRST HOME I HAVE OWNED SO I WAS ANXIOUS BOTH ABOUT GETTING THE BEST PRICE AND GETTING IT SOLD. IT WAS RELATIVELY SHORT NOTICE ON THE DECISION TO LIST IT, AND LASZLO IMMEDIATELY GAVE ME A LIST OF IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO TO MAXIMIZE ITS' PRESENTABILITY AND TO MAKE THE PROCESS EASY. HE ALSO PROVIDED ME CONTACTS TO GET THE WORK DONE INCLUDING MINOR FIXES, WINDOW WASHING, CLEANING, AND CHECKING FOR THINGS THAT THE INSPECTORS WOULD BE CRITICAL ABOUT. ALL OF HIS REFERENCES WERE TIMELY AND FAIRLY PRICED. HE PROVIDED A FAIR VALUATION FOR LISTING, HAD AN EXPERT PHOTOGRAPHER, WHO DID AN INVITING LAYOUT ONLINE, DID A TIMELY OPEN HOUSE WHICH RESULTED IN A SALE IN 3 DAYS. DURING THE PRE-CLOSURE TIME HE KEPT ME UP TO DATE, DEALT SKILFULLY WITH AN INTERNATIONAL CLIENT, HAD AN OPEN DIALOGUE WITH THE ESCROW COMPANY, AND ROUTINELY GAVE ME NOTICE OF WHAT WOULD HAPPEN NEXT. I AM A CPA AND TRULY APPRECIATE PROFESSIONALISM NO MATTER WHAT FIELD IT IS IN. LASZLO UNDERSTANDS EVERY COMPONENT OF HIS PROFESSION, IS WONDERFUL TO DEAL WITH, AND IS KNOWLEDGEABLE AND HONEST. I CAN UNEQUIVOCABLY RECOMMEND HIM AND AM REFERRING MY CLOSEST FRIENDS TO HIM, AS I KNOW THEY WILL GET FIRST CLASS TREATMENT.
