Kathey Busse was heaven sent, literally.

The first time we met, was by chance. We happened to be in the area and called her that same day to meet us at a prospective house. It was NOT a house suitable for us, especially with my being disabled and in a wheelchair. I didn't even go into the house. I was a little discouraged, but Kathey reassured me before I left, that she would find a house for me and everything would be okay; she even had a house in mind that she felt would be perfect for me. A week later, she called me to show me the house when it was ready and the rest is history! Kathey was patient, she was an advocate on our behalf and she worked hard to make sure I was completely satisfied. Thank you Kathey! God Bless you!

Peter Carmichael/Harry Colbert

I had dealt with agent Steven Schenkenberger who helped us sell 2 of our rental properties and helped us find a home down to Laguna Niguel before he got to a bike's accident .

I have nothing bad to say about Steven Schenkenberger, he was very courteous, patient he cared about his clients. I was referred by my son in law that Steven help him find a house in San Clemente. After the accident I was introduced to Agent Beau Beardslee to help me sell the property in South Pasadena. Here again I had nothing to complain about agent Beardslee, I can tell that they both came from an elite company that care about their clients. Theresa in The office in Laguna Niguel and Mila Sealey in Newport Beach offices are the best to work with.

This is a Testimonial!

I can't say enough good about Dave P.

He helped me every step of the way (and I mean EVERY). He was always there for me, even if I forgot something or did something stupid. I knew I could always count on him. His responsiveness, knowledge, and resourcefulness really came through.

Ruth T Burns

Name Withheld by Request Home buyer in Laguna Niguel $655K Terry was very experienced, professional and knowledgeable of real estate transactions.

He was also agressive at communicating with our escrow and mortgage companies to ensure that we met our closing deadline. We had confidence in his ability to excecute our home purchasing process accurately and in a timely manner, from start to finish.  We would like Terry to represent us in any future real estate transactions.

Cindy Vedder was knowledgeable and professional, combined with excellent customer service.

I will definitely be referring Cindy Vedder, and your company, to my friends and family.

Pedro Garcia Jr.

Naz is an amazing person, she is so personable and kind.

Naz does her job very well and knows the market. She is very aggressive when need be and strives for her clients to get the best deal. I ran into a rough patch with Bank Of America as I guess a lot of people do and Naz was quick and able to save the deal with another lender (Movement Mortgage). I would recommend these two anyday. I felt as though I gained another friend in Naz, I cant say enough about her she was the perfect package for anyone that is looking to buy and sell property. She is absolutely a wonderful person and I look forward to working with her in the future. THANKS!!!!!!!!!!

Jeremiah V. Kennedy

Kevin is very good personality, honest and straight.

We first found his name is on sign board at front yard one of "Greentree Homes" many years ago. After we had met him and asked him for finding tenants, managing house, and sale house. All his works always made us happy and satisfied.

Takako Augtsson

Jeff A.

Condo buyer in Costa Mesa $285K Terry helped my family buy our very first home he was an amazing realtor. He was no nonsense which was a breathe of fresh air compared to other realtors we worked with.  Terry was informative about the entire process of buying a home. He was personable and reliable throughout the process. When it comes to buying a new home later we will most definitely look up Terry. Thank you so much and bless you.

Every neighbor we spoke with highly recommended Lisa Hosinski For the Dana Knolls area, and they were right!

She did an excellent job! She was quick to list our house, stage it, put it on Zillow with an excellent video. We signed the listing on Wednesday afternoon, she had the house staged and held an open house the following Saturday, and we had a full price offer with no contingencies early Saturday! Lisa did an excellent job of keeping the escrow going smoothly and we closed 3 1/2 weeks later! Excellent job Lisa Hosinski!

She was extremely helpful and always with a happy face.

Shivendrak & Gunvati Thakkar

Marilynn Rich is an excellent realtor.

Our sale of our home was an easy and smooth transaction. She helped us with any questions we had and walked us through all the paper work. The pictures she took of the home were great. Could not have asked for a better experience.

Terrence & Kathleen Painter

Jake was incredible with both the sale and purchase portions of our transactions.

He handled my nervous/frantic phone calls with kindness, encouragement, and knowledge that made me feel at ease. When we felt discouraged, Jake was there to keep things in perspective and remind us that it works all work out - and it did!! After dealing with the Realtors for our purchasers and sellers, it was VERY clear that Jake loves his job and is extremely good at it, while others are merely doing enough to get by. He puts his client's satisfaction as a top priority and makes sure that they know what is going on at every step of the way.

James Long-Lerno Candice Long-Lerno

Veronica is the absolute best at what she does.

I have followed her through the years and will never be represented by anyone else!

Carla Manjarrez

As first time home buyers we met Dawn Lee Bogert and Troy Bogert at an open house that would become our first home.

Dawn is simply phenomenal. Her knowledge of the area from her decades of working and living in the area is unparalleled. I can’t say enough great things about Dawn because she has helped me and my wife through EVERY detail of buying a home and even after the sale her continued support and care has really raised the bar in expectations of a client-realtor relationship. Her and Troy make a wonderful team to interact with and we simply enjoyed getting to know them through this process. They have so much to offer and they truly care about helping you.

Sean and Janella

"Gaylene is the only realtor I will ever use again.

She sold our home for over asking in Irvine and negotiated the beautiful ocean view home we purchased in San Clemente. She’s a great realtor and goes above and beyond to service her clients. Professional, experienced, friendly, and has a strong commitment to doing what’s best for her clients. Love her loyalty! We plan on selling our San Clemente home in the near future and she’s the realtor I’ll use. We’ll be selling in the 2million dollar range and I know she’ll work hard to get the best price for our home. She offers her expertise in presenting your home for sale. She’s amazing!"

Sherry J

Beau was great to work with.

He was professional, energetic, always positive and demonstrated knowledge of the market.

Down to earth people to work with very godly people

Kurtis A. & Debbie J Yeager

Lisa was extremely helpful and available which made the experience very easy.

Dave & Tracy Huiberts

As a Veteran and first time home buyer, I don't dare to imagine a worse experience.

Constantly re-requested documents that when confronted about having sent them was told that they had them. Was requested to sign documents dated a full month prior. Communication skills were poor at best with little to no instructions when requesting we fill out documents as we were co-buyers not in a relationship, so some documents required both signatures while others needed our own pages. The agent was more concerned with his fellow First Team agent's opinion of him on the Seller's side than that of his own clients. Our agent failed to get important things in writing that the seller's agent said and so they never happened. Seller's agent gave buyers attitude when confronted about the facts of his own words. Then when the regional vice president and president were brought in, nothing was remedied. I was told that I'd have a response by end of day and didn't. I emailed the vice president back only to get a call from one of her subordinates. Then they stalled until the loan closed so that they didn't have to answer for their poor (at best) service. To this day, NO ONE has taken ownership of the multiple poor business practices and have only been responded to with, "I'm sorry you feel that way." I recommend NO ONE, neither First Team nor Stearns. I should have known better when everyone was in bed together, some of them in the literal sense.

Claudia Acosta Matthew Allen Pugh

My agent Neil Shirey was superb!

Due to my family situation, timing was of the essence in regard to this transaction. I truly believe it would not have happened without Neil ... his diligence, attention to detail, dedication, market expertise, responsiveness, negotiating skills, professionalism and communication are unsurpassable.

Jenny McDonald

Sharle has done a great job for us over the last 8 years, in buying 3 properties and selling another.

Tidland Stephen L.Trust

I must say, this process was flawless!

My agent communicated and worked so hard for me. He actually did things I would never expect a real estate agent to do. He went above and beyond the call of any agent. Not only did he represent First Team in a professional manner, he portrayed the values of your company. Kevin exemplifies what real estate agents should aspire to. I will always use Kevin in my future purchases and sales. Thank you First Team for a job well-done!!!!!

Michael Fender

Francisca Rio of First Team is the most professionally competent, capable and delightful agent I have ever worked with.

She went WAY above and beyond any normal efforts to sell my home which required a lot of "pre-sale" input and follow up by her. She always had an infectiously upbeat "can do" attitude which made every aspect of listing and selling my home a smooth and very pleasant process. I will use her again (and again!) for all my real estate transactions. SHE IS THE BEST!!! I was very impressed by all the marketing avenues that First Team offered. Maximum exposure lead to a speedy sale!! :)

Victoria Gruen

Great kid did a solid deal

Kenny & Bernadette Miller

Cindy was extraordinary in two areas; listening and attention to detail.

She quickly dialed in exactly what we wanted and was extremely organized and well informed on days we went looking. I believe her depth of research and communication skills got us the best deal. At the same time she kept the interaction positive and enjoyable with all parties. I also felt very protected with the amount of documents as she could explain each one in great detail and was highly aware of all deadlines and potential repercussions.

Patricia A. & Gregory G. Dreyer

Dawn & Troy helped along the entire way.

Through the process of selling our house(which they helped us find) to finding our new home! We couldnt thank them enough!

Elly and Andy Smith

Beth McCloskey was an amazing agent.

She’s very knowledgeable and stays in constant communication with you. Beth helped us find a great house in our desired neighborhood of Huntington Beach. She was always available to show our family homes in a variety of cities. Our kids loved her! I would recommend her and first team to anyone looking to buy or sell a new home.

Andrew Trinidad Jill Luck-Trinidad

Dawn and Troy Bogert were excellent for helping to fill my rental with a wonderful client.

We went above and beyond the call of duty in caring for the details because I live out of state, I needed extra help. They were awesome!

Paula Michelle Baron Robert E. Baron

This is not the first time I have worked with Marcel and Jamie so it was a surprise to be impressed again.

They are very professional, know the area and the market and were able to close the deal in a short time. Thank you guys.

Christina displayed an amazing presentation.

Was very knowledgeable about the market place. Received outstanding customer service.

Christopher Selter

Lauren Lumbattis took great care of my husband and I and treated us like we were friends and always seemed to have our best interest at heart.

She was patient with all my questions and concerns and always willing to explain things and help my husband and I to feel comfortable and confident in our decisions.

Daniel & Britany NIchelson

Albert is extremely professional, dedicated and knowledgeable.

Responds in a timely manner. Very resourceful and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend him! I believe if you choose to work with Albert you will not be disappointed.

Melissa Brandes

Selling my house took a lot of work, and I was so glad that Dawn and Troy helped get my house ready.

They took care of so many details for me. They put in a lot of time and effort and kept me posted of everything happening with the house. I liked that they were always available to answer questions and made such helpful suggestions.

Linda Knight

Name Withheld by Request Condo buyer in Laguna Niguel $434K We pretty much have our home because of Terry's work.

He was extremely informative, communicative and just an all-around pleasure to deal with. I would recommend him to anyone I knew in the market.

Ted was so easy to work with.

He knows the business and is very professional and yet so personable. Working with someone whom you can absolutely trust is essential in this type of business transaction - and Ted is the best you will find. It was just a pleasure to work with him and I would highly recommend him!

Stephanie & Talon Ming

Albert Kroes exceeded my expectations and I was struck by his professionalism, attention to detail and his superlative communication skills.

Coldwell Banker is fortunate to have an employee wit h the dedication and trustworthiness , and I would not hesitate to utilize Albert Kroes again in any future real estate transaction in Sourthern California. Many thanks. Guy R. 

Guy Redington

Professional and communicative throughout.

Answered my questions quickly and fully. Honest and I never felt pressured to make decisions. Fully explained everything and offered to answer questions every step of the way. Trustworthy and easy to share with. Surpassed my expectations!

Lynn Nguyen

I really appreciate the two agent team, who are responsible for the sale of our home.

Without their hard work, I seriously doubt we would have sold the house. As for First Team, the company, I do not feel it is a really good firm. Using the name Team in the name is misleading and false. No assistance or other agents were involved in the process of selling our home. Their was no "Teamwork." As for the agents who worked together to get it sold, they deserve a five star rating. I would recommend the agents, Sherine Tate and Keith to everyone, but would not recommend the company to anyone! If someone is seeking good agents, choose Sherine and Keith, but remember, they will not get any help or assistance from First Team!

Jeffrey & Rosemary Warner

JO-ANN HAWLEY-VERSTRAETE WAS AMAZING!

WE HAD MEETINGS WITH SEVERAL AGENTS INCLUDING JO-ANN. SHE WASN'T THE MOST AFFORDABLE, BUT WE KNEW SHE COULD SELL QUICKLY. WE HAD NO IDEA WE WOULD SELL IT THAT QUICKLY AND OVER ASKING PRICE! SHE WAS AWESOME. WE NEEDED SOME MINOR UPDATES AND SHE ARRANGED THEM ALL AND WAS ALWAYS THERE TO MEET THE WORKER, HANDLE WHATEVER WAS NEEDED. WE WORK A LOT AND SHE TOTALLY STEPPED UP! MONEY WELL EARNED. SHE GETS A 17 ON A SCALE OF 1-10.

Brandi & Todd McArthur

Beth provided the extra effort and expertise that made this experience successful

Powel Family Trust

Living in HB since 1971 The Sire Team, Joe & Rosemarie, we're one of the first to begin relationships with our neighborhood.

I got quite a bit of work out of their newsletter as well. Our neighbor used Roe as her agent & was extremely pleased in her experience with Rosemarie as her agent. Myself moving from homeowner to condo owner, my experience went perfectly...& not by sheer luck! Many Thanks to Roe for her hard work, professionalism, & dedication!!

Dan Daryl Walters Collette V Walters

To me, Meital soars above other agents in Laguna Beach.

I interviewed three agents and there was no contest. From our initial phone call to the first interview, from preparing the listing to receiving multiple offers over list price within four days on the market, everything Meital did was successful, professional, reassuring, and strong. Her sales and negotiation skills represented me with the buyer fairly and she made the entire escrow process a breeze. In truth, my house sold far in advance of when I expected it would and her pricing was spot-on to generate lots of action, and offers, right away in the Laguna Beach market. She knows the real estate business in and out, and trusting her was the best decision I made in this whole experience. She also has an incredible team that seamlessly managed interactions and information across multiple individuals in my family for showings, contracts, inspections, and closing. All in all, the entire process felt like white glove treatment and Meital missed no chance to make circumstances work in my favor. I'm very grateful to have worked with her and recommend her and her entire team to anyone seeking a successful sale of their home.

Scott Slavin

I am very very satisfy with the results.

The agents Rocky And Fred both very professional and willing to take the extra miles to make sure everything was smooth during the whole transaction. I have done a lot of real Estate purchase in the past but I have never have had better experience than this one because of the two wonderful agent and friend. I make sure to spread the word around.

Jeff Mogharrab

Albert was certainly the best Realtor for what was a very challenging process as a buyer.

However, with his calm and professional manner we were in good hands and are now enjoying our new prope rty. Albert is a true gentleman, honest, capable and understanding. He is someone one would happily refer to others. Thank you Albert. 

Robert Copeland

We were very happy with Ann's thoroughness and quick respone to all the questions we had.

She was extremely helpful and always with a happy face.

Shivendrak & Gunvati Thakkar

We have used Chrissie Meads services before and were very well pleased with all she offered.

There was no question on who we would ask in assisting us in finding another rental home. Chrissie is our "go to" girl. She makes the whole process quick and easy. She understands how fast properties go and come, so she is on top of her game in showing us properties as soon as they become available. Chrissie takes care of her clients and then some. First Team Real Estate has a star agent on their hands! Thanks to Chrissie, we have found the perfect rental home.

James and Lorraine Porras

I wish I could sit down with you and personally tell you of the experiences my wife and I have had with Jacob Lawlor as our Realtor.

Reason being, you would then be able to better understand my level of sincerity and gain a deeper trust for this review as we all know that anyone can compose anything on the internet and therefore all things considered should be taken with a grain of salt. That being said, Mr. Lawlor is lively and passionate about fitting people into the homes they desire. In 2016, my wife and I were looking for our first home to purchase meanwhile expecting a baby in the months ahead. With Jacob’s eagerness to answer any and all questions, it was easy and pleasant getting to know every step of the buying process. He does his homework and knows where to find the information you’re looking for - should you find yourself needing assistance in cross-checking market information, etc. He is punctual and professional is his demeanor, and I know that both his clients and colleagues find it a privilege to work with him. Should you decide to allow Mr. Lawlor work with you in your future indeavors, I can promise you that you will be most satisfied with the level of service and professionalism given. Perhaps you can return to this review at a later date and confirm what has been shared here. It is the credit that will be well deserved to Mr. Lawlor as a result of his hard work and effort in providing you with the best service in finding and buying your new home. Cheers!

Nick & Yuki Forster

Albert Owen Hollins

We worked with Karean since she was managing the rental process for our new home.

We were extremely satisfied with the overall process and look forward to working with her again in the future.

Andrew Buehler

Used them because I knew them personally but also because I had heard excellent things about them from people who had used them on a professional level.

They were courteous, knowledgable and responsive - all excellent qualities in a real estate professional. I felt like they had my best interests at heart always, despite it being the run up to Christmas - a particularly busy time of year for everyone. Would totally recommend them and use them again.

Jon Casey Construction

Another great job

Jacqueline Abbott

Shaun Hurley did an excellent job in marketing and selling my home.

We had the challenge of selling it during the holidays, and he knew how to time it, so that it didn't sit on the market long. He was especially helpful during the escrow process when a few minor problems arose. Shaun helped us problem-solve and negotiated the details that resulted in a smooth escrow process. I would highly recommend Shaun Hurley from First Team!

H & M Property Ventures LLC

Kim Trinh Broker Associate was very professional; guided me through the whole selling process with good advice and selling our home above asking price.

Our home was empty and she advised us to take the virtual staging photos which enhance our home tremendously. I really believe without this advice our house would never sell over asking. So A++++ to Kim.

Rhonda Gershon

Nicole Marchio

Beth Mccloskey was an excellent realtor.

She listened to what I wanted, and the price range. She presented me with many choices. Was always professional and timely in her responses. She negotiated and looked out for my best interest. I would recommend her and give her a 5 star rating.

Marialice Faubel Faubel

Jami Dotson is the best realtor out there.

I would recommend her to anyone. She took the time to explain everything and she got me everything I wanted. I would never use anyone else.

William McGuigan

Shaun is the most professional, responsive and tactful realtor I have ever dealt with.

His experience, knowledge of market , negotiating skills and personal relationship goes above and beyond expectations in every aspect of the transaction and communication .

Steven & Lizabeth Michaels

Dave D.

Condo buyer in Anaheim $169K Terry kept me focused when it looked like I would not find the perfect place. After we found the right place he worked hard to make the sale happen. He even convinced the seller to fix things before closing on an "as is" sale.

Working with Maureen, my realtor, has again been a pleasure.

She has represented me in a couple other homes both bought and sold. Always a true professional.

Michael Strickbine

This was my first home purchase and Dave Pedneault always kept me prepared for up-coming tasks.

He was very knowledgeable of the complex and current comps. He was readily available and easy to work with. I trusted him in the entire process and the purchase happened seamlessly. I've already referred a two people to use him.

Gennifer Marie Kluver

I had a fabulous experience from beginning to end!

Helped me properly stage, market and price. Brought me offers and negotiated them up. Helped with every step of closing.

Magory Vallerie Volesko Tr

My experience with Jamie Attalah was wonderful.

From the first time we talked all through the process she was very kind and helpful.

Marlene Donoghue

We became acquainted with Albert Kroes approximately three years ago on a personal level.

However, we were soon involved at a professional level working together to establish the Board of a newly-formed HOA. His knowledge, work ethic, and integrity became very evident during the process. His common sense and foresight were also very apparent along with his compassion for our community in general. Our dealings with him were always pleasurable. Albert is definitely a professional and and someone to put your trust in.

Jim Moeller

You can’t beat experience.

Lisa was right there every step of the way.

Don Dusatko

I am very satisfied with all that was done for me.

I couldn’t be happier. Thank you,

Owen P McConville

Great job

Lin John Ju & Chi Li Ju Family Trust

Jo An dealt with an agent on the buyers side of our transaction, who was truly the most unprofessional business person I can recall.

He made the sale of our home that we had nurtured for 27 years a total nightmare. JoAn handled the process with total dignity and knowledge of the situation.

William & Patricia Schultheis

I had a fabulous experience from beginning to end!

Helped me properly stage, market and price. Brought me offers and negotiated them up. Helped with every step of closing.

Magory Vallerie Volesko Tr

Kay Dygert was our broker, and she was the perfect balance of professionalism and determination in selling our home.

Not only that, Kay went above and beyond in staging it beautifully and hosting open houses almost every weekend for four months. She was caring and 150% committed to us as well as selling our home. I would highly recommend her to everyone.

Forrest and Kathleen Cottrell

No other house buying experience can compare !

Logan Aiello Stephany Aiello

Rich and Julie worked very hard,were conscientious, and caring.

They were flexible with our ideas and decisions and did not pressure us.

Mark & Cindy Riedlinger

The process of purchasing our home Chris and Debbie was absolutely flawless.

We met them at an open house, and we were given a tour a potential neighborhoods the same day. They were able to understand our wants for a home, and zero in on the location and found the home of our dreams. In a market of tight inventory, the first house we made an offer on was the one we won the bid on. Chris and Debbie aren’t just looking to purchase homes, they’re looking to start a new chapter of your life when you find the home you’re going to move into. Purchasing real estate is never fun, but they were able to make the process painless and we ended up finding the home where we grow old in. Thanks again Chris and Debbie

Allen & Vivian Lu

Kathey Busse was heaven sent, literally.

The first time we met, was by chance. We happened to be in the area and called her that same day to meet us at a prospective house. It was NOT a house suitable for us, especially with my being disabled and in a wheelchair. I didn't even go into the house. I was a little discouraged, but Kathey reassured me before I left, that she would find a house for me and everything would be okay; she even had a house in mind that she felt would be perfect for me. A week later, she called me to show me the house when it was ready and the rest is history! Kathey was patient, she was an advocate on our behalf and she worked hard to make sure I was completely satisfied. Thank you Kathey! God Bless you!

Barbara Walker

I was blessed to get Donna Carson as an agent.

..She was professional, empowering and thorough in the services she provided. Donna is an excellent communicator and seamlessly knows how to bring all parties together for the highest good and outcome. I am deeply satisfied with Ms. Carson's service as she represented First Team. First Team shines well in my heart because of the agent I had Donna Carson. Thank you!

Janvie Cason

Sam Chinarian always do an excellent job for assisting us (remote property owner).

Sam answers and quick response to all my tenant issues. We are happy for Sam's service, as we are hand free with our property management, and don't need to do anything or be present at the property when the tenant move out & move in. Sam arranges all the clean up & repair, perform all the wall thru inspection, addressing any open issues. Sam actively rent my property out, a very dependable and honest real estate agent, he always available when we need him.

Alex Leung

Denise Durrell helped me with a real estate transaction in 2005.

Based on that very positive experience I sought out her services again recently, and she did not disappoint me. She did a great job. She was helpful, supportive and there to assist me every step of the way. The sale of my house came at a difficult time in my life, and she made the process more manageable for me. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a realtor.

Milena Rovere

Daniel and Irene McGhee's overall approach in selling another property for us, as well as this latest one, was outstanding!

They are both very personable and very friendly. They were very professional as well being friendly. We consider them to be our good friends. We would definitely ask them to represent us should we have need to sell another property.

Raymond Nelson Executor

Rose was very professional and help us sell our property under very difficult circumstances.

She was very efficient with taking care of paperwork and getting the house ready for sale. Rose was knowledgeable about the market and very confident that our property would sell quickly. She held an open house the first weekend and we had offers coming in right away. Her advice about the offers we were receiving was honest and I trusted her. The property was being sold under divorce orders and she handled the difficult situation very professionally. I will be calling Rose again and recommending her to my friends and family.

He then took care of all activities that we needed to bid for selected properties. Following that, He got all the formalities completed on time with no effort from our end. It was a pleasure working with him. He is bright young man and we wish him the very best for his future.

Vikranbir Nagra Poonam Gujral

DO NOT USE MIKE HULL - LIED NUMEROUS TIMES, AND EXTREMELY UNPROFESSIONAL AGENT!

I am sure all other F1rst team agents are exemplary and of high standings. Mike Hull sold the home I lived in for over 10 years. Let me tell you why he is, in my opinion, the worst real estate agent in Orange County. So were using him to sell our home, I always respected the man which is why I made sure that he was the real estate agent we used over all the others we could choose from. I'm not going to go into anything else that happened because I respect privacy matters but I do want to let people know about what the most unprofessional gesture that was ever done to me. Fast forward to about 2 months after he sold my home. He messages me and said thank you for backing him and ensuring he got the listing 8/29. He wanted to give me a gift and asked for ideas. I gave him some and he said he would send it soon. 3 weeks later 9/18 I follow up and he replied "...busy (but) i'll get it out to you ASAP." ONE FULL MONTH LATER Oct 15 I follow up asking about it, he says "Should have been (at your house) I will have to ask my assistant because as far as I know it was sent awhile back" I told him I did not receive anything as I would have thanked him if I did. He said "I will let you know when I talk to her (his assistant)." In my opinion I HIGHLY doubt he has an "assistant". ... anyway, 7 days go by and no communication from him.. So 7 days later I said any news? He replies "She said she sent it man" and this is when I know he is completely lying. I said "When? Does she have a tracking number or anything? Should probably try to follow up with it or I can report it (submit a claim to USPS to receive insurance refund) cause I didn't receive anything. Everything is insured and it prolly wasnt very cheap so if she can let me know the info ill submit the claim" He replies "OK I will tomorrow" like what? that is not what i asked or anything so clearly hes being deceitful. 2 days later I follow up he says we put in a request. I asked for the tracking number. This is the best part... He replies "Yeah ... sorry man im just really busy and I have it at the office I will get it to you sometime tomorrow thanks again man" I followed up FOUR more times, not a single reply. If that does not tell you who he is then i don't know what will, if you want to use him GOOD LUCK BUT IN MY STRONGLY FELT OPINION ABOUT HIM, HE IS THE WORST, LYING REALTOR IN ORANGE COUNTY USE A MORE RESPECTFUL AGENT PLEASE FOR YOURSELF. I am happy to send anyone screen shots of our entire convo if you dm me, thanks

Richard was very attentive, patient and professional from start to finish!

We encountered several road blocks related to our 1031 exchange but he was able to respond each time with suggestions and solutions that lead to a succeful completion of our transaction. I highly recommend Richard and First Team!

Katherine Wallace

After have our house on the market with a different company, we looked for a company that could market our house for what and where it is.

First Team came to our attention very quickly. We had a great experience. We will us First Team again.

David Roberts/Vanessa Roberts

Thank you Maurice Liu, without his knowledge and experience, we will never able to get our house.

Thank you

Eddy L Mo

Outstanding team, they had a contract within one or two days and they sold my house for more than what I was expecting.

Abel Mora

Working with Dave was amazing!

He made the process as easy as possible for me and I learned so much with him since this was my first experience buying a home. He was prompt in answering any and all questions and his team was helpful as well.

Marrisa Elena Reiner

Barbara B.

Condo buyer in Huntington Beach $312K Terry was extremely helpful in negotiating with the seller specific areas that allowed this sale to proceed and in helping me get a reasonable and fair deal. He was always easily available when I had questions and concerns, and helped me through this home-buying process with a high level of skill and professionalism. Thank you very much.

Outstanding team to work with, Steve really knows the market along with his partner Kate.

I am very glad to have found thembecause they make buying real estate very easy when it is a difficult process. These two are on top of their game. Also super friendly with a lot of experience in this field.

Abel Mora

Meital Taub did an outstanding job, start to finish!

Philip G & Gina M De Carion

Jackie was the most thorough agent I have ever encountered.

My needs and questions were answered on the spot every time. I couldn't ask for a more intelligent and competent negotiator when it came to repair items and pricing. No stone was left unturned. Jackie knew the contract inside and out and was able to set me at ease with all the legal terminology and never ending paper work that needed my signature. First Team got my business because of her. If the rest of the agencies had representation such as I. Buying property would be breeze for everyone. But I got what everyone else didn't have... Jackie Stashik The Real Estate Advisor!!

Ken Stashik

MIsa did an amazing job of selling our home.

He was very professional in all of the areas listed above. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an agent. His ability to access professionals with videos and marketing tools made a huge difference and he was always prompt in getting back to us with updates. Well done Misa!

John & Alice Houtenville

Stuart Wann did an amazing job selling my condo.

I was on travel 90% of the time and he coordinated the sale of my condo to make the whole experience effortless. He had my place sold within 4 days at $6K over asking price, and took all challenges head on!! You will not regret going with Stuart!!

Christopher Nowicki

To me, Meital soars above other agents in Laguna Beach.

I interviewed three agents and there was no contest. From our initial phone call to the first interview, from preparing the listing to receiving multiple offers over list price within four days on the market, everything Meital did was successful, professional, reassuring, and strong. Her sales and negotiation skills represented me with the buyer fairly and she made the entire escrow process a breeze. In truth, my house sold far in advance of when I expected it would and her pricing was spot-on to generate lots of action, and offers, right away in the Laguna Beach market. She knows the real estate business in and out, and trusting her was the best decision I made in this whole experience. She also has an incredible team that seamlessly managed interactions and information across multiple individuals in my family for showings, contracts, inspections, and closing. All in all, the entire process felt like white glove treatment and Meital missed no chance to make circumstances work in my favor. I'm very grateful to have worked with her and recommend her and her entire team to anyone seeking a successful sale of their home.

Scott Slavin

During 50 years of buying and selling houses I have never met a more professional realtor than Susan McCabe.

She provided the best advise in every situation that arouse in the transaction for buying my new home at the beach. My wife and I love her. You will be lucky if you have the experience of working with her to find your new home.

Billy Jacobson

Stu and Liz were the best - by far - real estate agents that I have ever worked with!

They are very smart and professional. Their effort before the sign went in the yard generated a lot of interest in my condo. My condo sold very, very quickly as a result. They are absolutely the best!

Patricia Wallace

Alex was always helpful , thanks for your support.

I'm so happy. You were always helping always available always reaching out. I really had good experience.

America Munoz

“Dear Howard, We wanted to thank you very much for selling our beach home.

You came highly recommended & now we know why. Your attention to detail, over 25 years selling luxury real estate, a background in renovation & design along with your ability to intelligently discuss ideas and changes that the buyers wanted to make, made all the difference between the buyers choosing our home verses another. You did an outstanding job. Your reputation as the #1 Coastal Real Estate Team is well deserved. “Christina Gillette & Tony DiPietra

Christina Gillette & Tony DiPietra

First Team realtor Donald Cook did a great job at coming along side of my sister and I during a very difficult time in our life after our father died.

He was able to get a buyer for the house and closed quickly. The DocuSign was perfect for us since we lived in two different states. The team seemed professional, responded back to our emails and answered our questions in a timely manner.

Ann E. Hofferber Trustees/Terri L. Suryn Trustees

JO-ANN HAWLEY-VERSTRAETE WAS AMAZING!

WE HAD MEETINGS WITH SEVERAL AGENTS INCLUDING JO-ANN. SHE WASN'T THE MOST AFFORDABLE, BUT WE KNEW SHE COULD SELL QUICKLY. WE HAD NO IDEA WE WOULD SELL IT THAT QUICKLY AND OVER ASKING PRICE! SHE WAS AWESOME. WE NEEDED SOME MINOR UPDATES AND SHE ARRANGED THEM ALL AND WAS ALWAYS THERE TO MEET THE WORKER, HANDLE WHATEVER WAS NEEDED. WE WORK A LOT AND SHE TOTALLY STEPPED UP! MONEY WELL EARNED. SHE GETS A 17 ON A SCALE OF 1-10.

Brandi & Todd McArthur

Brandice marketed our home far better than any other agent had marketed theirs.

Our listing included photos and video of our home and the surrounding area. We compared our listing to other listings in the area and found that most of the other listings only had photos with no video. In the rare instance when we found another listing with both photos and video, there was no comparison as to the quality of both.

Patrick & Cynthia Odea

I don't have anything but good things to say about these two.

If you want realtors who will take care of you and walk you through the process, then you MUST pick them. My husband and I were first-time home buyers, so we knew NOTHING. They always went above and beyond to explain the process. Dawn and Troy are a perfect team. They respond quickly and efficiently (via text or email), and Dawn is a WEALTH of information about the canyon areas. We closed on our home in Trabuco Canyon really fast, and it was mostly due to the fact that Dawn helped me be a step ahead of the game at every moment. I refuse to buy or sell anything without these two by my side. If they try to retire, I will stalk them via social media just to find out where they might be, so they can help me make the best decisions.

Hilda P.

Home seller in Rancho Palos Verdes $1,060K Terry represented me in selling this home and buying my new condo. I would highly recommend him for his professionalism and depth of knowledge in Real Estate. Terry made me feel very comfortable in all aspects of both transactions. He was always available when I called him and he kept me informed every step of the way. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a great Realtor. Thank you for everything,

Albert is "top-shelf"!

His marketing and sales skills are second to none; complemented with a winning personality; he consistently exceeds expectations and delivers results! He is very personable and tenacious; putting you first! You will not be disappointed. He is very thorough; does his homework; is an impeccable researcher. He took time to listen to our needs and made recommendations within our budget. It did not work out only because plans have changed and we are not relocating at this time.

Pat Navarro

Maricela Ramirez helped us out so much she is great and worked really hard for us to get our house we faced tough challenges and we overcame them with her .

A++++++ highly recommend.

IGNACIO ESCOBEDO

We have hired Karean twice now and have complete confidence in her.

We have had our rental for several years and it's always stressful when you have to find a new tenant. So happy to have found her to help us.

Wendy Margrave

Kristin McLaughlin was a delight to work with -- So knowledgeable and professional, yet kind and friendly.

She went above and beyond to make the sale of my condo happen in the shortest amount of time. I've never had such a great experience selling property and highly recommend her. She really knows what she's doing and has an amazing team behind her that made certain all t's were crossed and i's were dotted.

Barbara Taylor

Lauren, is just exceptional.

Her personality is just bubbling and friendly. She is knowledgeable in the market and was able to help us get the price we needed. Lauren, help us in everything from start to finish and responded to our ever concern. If you want someone that will listen and be their when you feel overwhelmed and is there to help you Lauren is that person. She knows her job. She sold our house before it was even listed on Realtor com at well over the asking price.

Nilda & Desiree Sonia

The Real Estate professionals exceeded expectations and delivered on forecasts.

My experience with Jamie Attalah was wonderful.

From the first time we talked all through the process she was very kind and helpful.

Marlene Donoghue

I loved working with the McGhees while saling my home , they put all of our doubts to rest , they reassured us that everything would be ok , me and my husband were unfamiliar with saling a home and was cautious and asked lots of questions .

Questions that the McGhees had answers for, They are so sharp and knowledgeable about Real estate , everything worked out fine , we are so blessed and know God put the McGhees in our lives for a reason ❤️❤️❤️

Saretta Windfield

The best real estate experience I have ever had.

Shawn is an expert!!!

Mark & Roseli Moss

"Gaylene is the only realtor I will ever use again.

She sold our home for over asking in Irvine and negotiated the beautiful ocean view home we purchased in San Clemente. She’s a great realtor and goes above and beyond to service her clients. Professional, experienced, friendly, and has a strong commitment to doing what’s best for her clients. Love her loyalty! We plan on selling our San Clemente home in the near future and she’s the realtor I’ll use. We’ll be selling in the 2million dollar range and I know she’ll work hard to get the best price for our home. She offers her expertise in presenting your home for sale. She’s amazing!"

Sherry Jarrett

Marcy was excellent from beginning to end.

Always available to answer questions and to address any issues. She worked seven days a week for us. She could be trusted to do the right things to make the whole process a success. We would definitely use her again.

Hector J Bordas Pearl Bordas

We were very pleased with our agent Veronica Silva.

She has done an remarkable and excellent job and her staff too. We will definitely refer to our family and friends. It's my husband Neil and I, Kathryn pleasure working with First Team Real Estate.

Neil and Kathy Mercurius

I must say, this process was flawless!

My agent communicated and worked so hard for me. He actually did things I would never expect a real estate agent to do. He went above and beyond the call of any agent. Not only did he represent First Team in a professional manner, he portrayed the values of your company. Kevin exemplifies what real estate agents should aspire to. I will always use Kevin in my future purchases and sales. Thank you First Team for a job well-done!!!!!

Michael Fender

Linda Bethmann was absolutely wonderful representing us for the leasing of our new home.

She was on top of everything, always followed up and kept us in the loop on any needs or issues. She is an awesome asset to have for home purchases or leases. Thank you to Linda for a job well done!

David and Chloe DiLuccia

Great service as usual--above and beyond expectations.

This is my regular realtor and I have had many successful sales and purchases with his help.

Gloria Hall

Donna Carson was great.

She went above and beyond her duties as our realtor. She was always very professional and kind hearted. We loved her and would recommend her to our friends and family.

Eileen G Irons

Dawn lee bogart is fabulous.

Paul Mecklenburg

Melinda is professional, compassionate, knowledgeable, and proactive, She kept us informed and always has a positive attitude .

.. she guided us through challenges and ensured that we received the best service and best results at all times. She kept us confident through a long and complicated process. We would highly recommend Mindy to anyone and everyone looking to buy or sell. We cannot imagine what this process would have been like without her. THANK YOU MINDY!

Gerald Sidney Freeman

We are very satisfied with first team.

We purchased the very home we wanted because they stuck with us till the end and negotiated on our behalf.

Rann Soeun

Doug and Soosan Robinette have helped my family in the past.

They are personable while remaining professional. They respond immediately to any concerns and constantly keep in touch and advise us as to how to respond whether we are the seller or buyer. They are the best!!

Rosemary Connor

In the winter of 2017 we first met Kelly Burke at an open house.

Since we were first time home buyers she offered us a binder full of helpful information and she answered all our questions. We weren't quite ready to buy a home at that time so we parted ways, but when we needed a realtor almost a year later the first person we thought of was Kelly. She was very optimistic she could find us our dream home within our budget. We were hopeful even in this very competitive HB market so we started our journey into the home buying process. She guided us through all the twists and turns that often come up when trying to buy a home and remained professional, knowledgeable, competent and caring throughout the entire process. She even worked through a bout with the flu and was always available whenever we needed her. We found our dream home relatively quickly, but were outbid at the last minute. Kelly remained optimistic even though we were heartbroken. We continued to look at other homes and a few weeks later on Christmas day Kelly called us with great news! Our dream home was again available and the realtor only reached out to her. Our offer was accepted and Kelly was there every step of the way. On the day she handed us the keys she went above and beyond with a very personal and thoughtful housewarming gift. If we ever need a realtor again we won't hesitate to call Kelly and will recommend her to friends and family. Thank you Kelly for making this a smooth and enjoyable home buying experience!!!

Andrea A Zimmer Timothy J Zimmer Karolyn M Zimmer

Working with my team was like working with close friends, they went above and beyond, met expectations, then exceeded them.

Working with Jamie and Marcel was a pleasure beyond words. They took extra steps to insure not only a sale, but that the entire experience was worth the time and not just another sale. I am not only a satisfied customer, I consider myself part of the family, I would not use anyone else with my most valuable asset.

Ronald B Hunt

I have worked with Andi for close to thirty years, yes 30 tears now and she has always been professional, caring and always has the best interest of her clients in mind when showing property and negotiating for the best price to sell my property or to buy new.

First Team is lucky to have someone on their team like Andi! Would I recommend Andi to a friend, in a heart beat. Would I use Andi again as my agent? No, I'm not moving any more. Andi found me the perfect house in the ideal location. Over the past thirty years "working" with Andi, if you want to call it working, I consider Andi family. Andi, thank you for your patients and endurance in finding me a home. It took awhile but well worth the journey.

Robert E Jones Jr

Don did a fantastic job listing and selling my house.

He gave great advise on renovating the house and coordinated all the contractors to get the work done. If you have any clients that need a personal testimony to Don's capabilities please have them call me.

Dc Financial

Beau is a pleasure to work with, he is very professional yet he made me feel like my property was a priority not just another listing.

This was a vacant listing, Beau helps me with staging and was a huge support in keeping a eye on it when I was not able to. Due to the location of the home weekend Open House are not allowed, but in lieu of that Beau did Broker Open almost every Wednesday the duration of the listing. Beau went above and beyond in the negotiation process with the buyer and in the end both me as seller and buyers were happy! Beau has high morals and that was very evident though out the entire process, I would highly recommend Beau!

Annette M Scholten

Determination at all times!

Robert Olivas

Stopped by one of their open houses, not actively looking so we didn’t commit to an agent since we didn’t think that we will be approved for a house within the area.

Chad M. just happen to be the one showing the house at the time and we were hooked, he followed up with us and helped us out with a few options for the loan. We got the house for the price that we asked for. He was helpful throughout the process and constantly kept us on track.

Jen and Gus Hurtado

Daniel and Irene McGhee were my agents for my recent condo purchase.

They did a wonderful job helping me throughout the entire transaction. They went the extra mile both literally and figuratively. I was looking in the Orange County area and, being from the Inland Empire, they had quite a distance to travel for showings, inspection, etc during the process. Irene also wrote a great cover letter for me highlighting aspects that made me a more attractive buyer to the seller, which helped get my offer accepted. They explained all points of the process clearly and made me feel comfortable the whole way through. They have a great way of making you feel like you are the only customer in their world, which makes one feel special and very well taken care of. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new home!

Aaron M. Lombard

Thank You!

Randy Hill helped my wife and I find our first home. As newbies to the intimidating world of real estate negotiations, he was patient and helped us understand the intricacies of the process at each step. He effectively communicated during all stages of our search, from our first meeting, to our final home inspection. He was even willing to be there during the final stages of paperwork despite having had hip replacement surgery just a matter of days before! He was willing to take the time to walk us through the maze of paper work and made himself personally available to evaluate prospective homes with us. He provided insightful opinions and knowledgeable input that came from over 20 years of experience in real estate. His experience helped us focus on what was truly valuable to us: owning our first home in a neighborhood we would be happy to call our own.

Glen and Dyan Cutshall

Mike Kelly and his team are extremely professional and courteous.

His market knowledge and negotiating skills served to maximize what we received for our property. He walks his clients through the process seemlessly and makes it a positive experience for everyone.

John and Pamela Burns

Stephen was always there for us through this sometimes painful process.

We consider him family.

Charles & Debbie Bennett

Terri Khosh exceeded all expectations we had.

Highly recommended

Zane S & Diana L Rodeheaver

We were so happy working with Beth.

We were very picky buyers and therefore it became a long process, but with her patience and professionalism we had a great experience.

Richard Blanks

Cindy Vedder was knowledgeable and professional, combined with excellent customer service.

I will definitely be referring Cindy Vedder, and your company, to my friends and family.

Pedro Garcia Jr.

Beth McCloskey did a fantastic job from beginning to end.

Endter Family Trust

We have worked with many real estate professionals, and Brandice Presley and Isabelle Nguyen are the absolute best.

They sold our house over the asking price. It couldn't have been a better experience. They both are such hard workers, very responsive, extremely professional, and exceeded our expectations. We highly, highly recommend Brandice and Isabelle.

George M Johns

Rosana did a wonderful job and sourcing and go shooting and very good deal for me and my kids.

Paul Grover

Ryan did a great job throughout.

I did use him because he is a friend, but I have many friends who are agent's and we landed on Ryan for all of the reasons he proved to be true. His 20 years of experience revealed itself at many points during the process and we felt we were in extremely capable hands every step of the way. Sold the first weekend for asking price and closed a week later, I'm aware this is not normal and Ryan and his team get much of the credit. We are now using a realtor for a purchase in another state and what a difference. Wish we could use Ryan out there! Thanks much to Ryan and his team for an extremely successful process and transaction.

Erik & Celeste Santiago

Beau did a great job for us.

We benefited from his dedicated effort and thorough market understanding and would highly recommend him.

Michael Lee Allison Elizabeth Ann Records

Jonathon Curci provided exceptional services, knowledge, and expertise throughout our first home buying experience.

His availability and knowledge were amazing. Thank you for your help!

Jeffry Genge Carly Kray

Great dealing with someone who had intimate knowledge of the HOA and area.

Alex Huang

Karean Wrightson, agent with First Team Real Estate, went above and beyond our expectations in order to find my family a house.

She was very helpful and kept all lines of communication open so we knew what was going on every step of the way. If she would not have taken the time and care that she had, my family would still he living in two separate states. We could not be more happy or grateful for the care and kindness we were given.

Michael Dooley

received good response for short selling my house till the end.

VICTOR JARROUS AND IVETTE F. JARROUS

Dude.

Richard Gayle. AMAZING. So quick to respond and to make things happen. He was very professional and went above and beyond to help us with the sale of our house. Very knowledgeable in every aspect of the process. Worked well with other agent to expedite the process. We are very happy with Richard and wish he was in AZ so we could use him again!

Montalban Family Living Trust

Donna Carson was great.

She went above and beyond her duties as our realtor. She was always very professional and kind hearted. We loved her and would recommend her to our friends and family.

Eileen G Irons

Sam is the Best!

!!

Danny Kubisch

Karean was an excellent negotiator, very professional, and knowledgeable and I would hire to represent us in another real estate transaction without hesitation.

I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Robert and Leslie Kaplan

Richard Gayle is the consummate professional, we only wish we had given him the listing to sell her home, versus only a buying agent.

I only wish I had another house to sell, so that I could let Richard handle the transaction. He was absolutely amazing.

Craig and Karen Cole

Jamie and Marcel are truly professionals and understand the importance of customer service.

I have bought and sold multiple properties with them and experience has been exceptional. I would refer them to any and everyone I know who is in the market of purchasing or selling property. Their efficiency, attention to detail, promptness and understanding the buyers needs separates them from the rest.

Markellus L & Kelly Reid

We have never met a realtor like Sam, he truly is amazing, he genuinely cared about our situation, we hope to be able to work with him again one day!

Marissa Cassimatis

Agent really hustled to stay on top of things.

Let nothing fall through the cracks. Even ensured that our bank rep and escrow associates followed through. Very responsive to all our concerns. Extensive knowledge of the process so led us through beautifully. Would have been very difficult without him. Highly recommend.

Scott & Virginia Keach

Was a great experience until I refused to sell my house and was talk back into it within time of me trying to back out I was harassed about backing out and then I was fired after trying to fire him it's been nothing but drama will never use 1st team or Richard Bella ever again

Elizabeth Hadley

Although Don was a friend, he handled himself in a very professional manor and was very responsive to questions and explainations that we needed.

He was patient and understanding of our needs, and did a great job of selecting houses that met our expectations. We would recommend him to anyone looking for a home.

Dennis Beem & Vanessa Chin

Agent pays close attention to detail.

He's responsive to questions and issues related to transaction. Highly recommend agent who can work in both L.A. and Orange Counties due to appraisal authority in both counties. Highly recommended. Jerry ad Cheryl Eastman

Cheryl Eastman Trustee of theEastman Living Trust

Meital Taub preformed flawlessly!

From finding the perfect home that checked every box, to extreme negotiations that gave us the best deal possible. Truly having our best interest every step of the way. So glad we had Meital representing my husband and I on our purchase in LB.

Michael Arnold Hostettler Rodger Devin Smith

Doug and Soosan had sold several homes in the family, so we naturally contacted them first.

I cannot recommend them higher. Just moved to LV Nevada, so unfortunately we will not be in the area - hence - the 9 out of 1- on using First Team again.

Mel Butler

I first met Ms.

Veronica Silva at the Open house and was very impressed with her sincerity. She was patience with me, a first time buyer, and guided me every step while giving me full autonomy til I am a proud owner of my dream home. Thank you again Veronica. This comment of mine may not mean anything, but I just wanted others to see how GREAT of an impact you have helped me accomplish.

Eddie & Ann Songtanin

Jo-An knows everything of the market environment and what to do for winning a house that we would like to buy.

It has been very easy and comfortable to talk to and listen to Jo-An and Kristine. The team is very professional and wonderful to work with. We are very grateful l to them.

Kiyoshi & Yayoi Inomata

Barbara F.

Condo buyer in Stanton $225K We had a rather long, drawn out unexpected experience with lenders and making it to escrow, but Terry was completely supportive and responsive every step of the way. I could not have asked for a better representative. It's obvious he cares about helping his clients achieve their goals.

I chose First Team because of Ann Tuler!

I knew if I worked with her, everything would be handled in the very most professional, expert, experienced manner. I know I would have to look very far and wide to find a Sales Associate with Ann's qualifications. She went way beyond what one would expect a Sales Associate to do, helped me when I didn't understand something, was very kind and understanding in everything to do with the sale of my property. I would never choose any other Sales Associate except Ann for any future real estate dealings I might have. I will consistently recommend her to my friends and professional colleagues. She is THE best! Martha Baker-Jordan

Marty Baker Jordan

Katherine Johnson, my realtor, is awesome lady.

She guided me through the entire process.

Lorraine Singleton

Casey is a great agent and we would definitely use him again.

From our first meeting, he was helpful, professional and relatable. Our sale was complicated and he helped us find tradesmen, recommended a stager and went well above what we would normally expect from an agent. He was great and we totally recommend him.

Seth Lancaster AF for Christine E. Yates

Hilda P.

Home seller in Rancho Palos Verdes $1,060K Terry represented me in selling this home and buying my new condo. I would highly recommend him for his professionalism and depth of knowledge in Real Estate. Terry made me feel very comfortable in all aspects of both transactions. He was always available when I called him and he kept me informed every step of the way. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a great Realtor. Thank you for everything,

Our experience with First Team was very positive.

We will use First Team in the future and will recommend to family and friends.

Cara Lisa Fermin Maxi Hury Fermin Gutierrez

My husband and I were so glad that Karean Wrightson at the Yorba Linda Office was the agent assigned to the rental property that she showed us and we agreed to lease.

She was very personable and really looked after our needs. She is an excellent agent and only wish she was the agent involved when we sold our home in Chino. Joe & Dianne Wheatley

Joseph Wheatley

Their continued efforts to move forward despite set backs and assistance in negotiations were extremely helpful.

Robert Olivas

Albert is "top-shelf"!

His marketing and sales skills are second to none; complemented with a winning personality; he consistently exceeds expectations and delivers results! He is very personable and tenacious; putting you first! You will not be disappointed. He is very thorough; does his homework; is an impeccable researcher. He took time to listen to our needs and made recommendations within our budget. It did not work out only because plans have changed and we are not relocating at this time.

Pat Navarro

Sharle has done a great job for us over the last 8 years, in buying 3 properties and selling another.

Tidland Stephen L.Trust

Jamie and Marcel Atallah are the most amazing realtors I have ever worked with!

Their level of professionalism and communication was unparalleled! Their marketing if my home was extraordinary! They were an absolute joy to work with. Selling a home you love is so stressful, but they made it a great experience!

Melinda Elizabeth Mironoff

Sam’s was very helpful and quick to respond, he went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed prior to move-in.

Would highly suggest First Team Real Estate.

Dear Adrienne,Good evening and hope all is well with you.

We have just finished closing on our home today in Watertown. Thank you for doing the research and working diligently with your relocation office and ultimately introducing Tia who did an amazing job and helped us to find this home for us. Thank you for our friendship and for all your support in making this happen. It was extremely nice of you to spend time looking for a good real estate agent for us in Boston and your selection and recommendation of Tia was not only great but extremely timely.I thank you and your company for your important part in helping us with this home search.Overall experience with Tia and all the associated people, Moy from wells and Sarah the attorney and your introductions to Tia made this all come together nicely. We could not have asked for a better process and experience during the purchase of this home. Thank you.With best regards,A very satisfied client

A very satisfied client

This is for Monique Brown, Christie's First Team, Newport Beach.

Monique is a wonderful, amazing Realtor! Her hard work, enthusiastic attitude and thorough diligence ended in the sale of my Laguna condo for the full price I had hoped for. Monique is an incredible, hard working, insightful agent. She communicates exceedingly well. Always answers the phone, even just to say she is busy and will get right back to me, I hardly ever had to leave a voicemail and wonder when she would respond. Texts were always quick replied to. She has an excellent decorator eye, helping me stage my condo to it's best effect. In fact, a professional stager stopped by an open house to offer her services but, after looking around, said she had nothing more to offer! Monique is incredibly meticulous regarding all documents and forms. She reviewed all papers regarding the sale and even those from my original purchase of the condo. She discovered mistakes and misspellings on Recorded, Legal documents from my previous purchase which everyone else had missed! Thanks to her we were able to rectify those errors. I highly recommend Monique! Her enthusiasm, due diligence, pleasant demeanor and hard work make a difficult time as hassel free as could be. I will happily respond to any requests for a reference for her. Sincerely, Jeffery "JJ" Lowers

He has been a true partner in the home buying process. He was knowledgeable and was able to find us great choices to begin with.

I am a satisfied past customer having had worked with Jo-An Hawley-Verstraete 8 years ago.

When I decided to purchase again, Jo-An was the only option for a real estate agent. Jo-An is just on it. She is extremely responsive, knowledgeable, competent and looks out for the client's best interest. Additionally, Jo-An hooked me up with her very professional and reasonable service providers to fix up my condo. I am beyond happy and satisfied with my purchase and the services provided by Jo-An!! I would vote Jo-An to be the real estate agent of the decade; if there is such a recognition :)

Home buyer in Laguna Hills $680K It was a pleasure working with Terry. He was very knowledgeable about the area where we wanted to purchase a home and made some great recommendations. He did his due diligence and always came back to us with comps for the properties that we were interested in bidding on (unlike 2 previous agents). He was always on time and had properties to show us that were relevant to us. 

Did a great job, Would use him again.

Condo buyer in Los Alamitos $425K Terry was incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of the home buying process. He spent a huge amount of time helping us, from quickly showing us every property we were interested in, to pointing out elements of a property that may be either troublesome or beneficial, but that we, as novices, would not know. He was tremendously responsive, and we highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Realtor.

We have worked with Jamie and Marcel Atallah on 2 previous transactions and they are always great to work with.

They make themselves available for questions or concerns at practically any time of day !! They make you feel like you are their only client, which I know is far from reality!! I would and have referred them to friends for all real estate needs!! Thanks again guys!!

I had made an offer with John on one of his listings and even though it didn’t work out, I was impressed with John’s follow up and experience.

So I decided to list my land with him. He’s helping me again with looking at some properties to buy. First Team, Broker and John are a reason for my repeat business. Excellent Service.

Reene is an excellent realtor with both her knowledge of the market and her compassion for helping her clients navigate through the emotional selling and buying process.

Jamie and Marcel are truly professionals and understand the importance of customer service.

I have bought and sold multiple properties with them and experience has been exceptional. I would refer them to any and everyone I know who is in the market of purchasing or selling property. Their efficiency, attention to detail, promptness and understanding the buyers needs separates them from the rest.

Kevin is very good personality, honest and straight.

We first found his name is on sign board at front yard one of "Greentree Homes" many years ago. After we had met him and asked him for finding tenants, managing house, and sale house. All his works always made us happy and satisfied.
