What advice do you have for buyers in the current market?
Buyers in this market should be working with experienced Realtors who not only have good relationships with other Realtors but also work with a multitude of lenders. We have developed strong relationships with top lenders that enable our clients to obtain preferred pricing, as well as making sure each buyer is matched to the lender who is best versed to their financial situation.
What gives you the edge in your area?
As lifelong residents, our vast knowledge of the area provides clients an inside track. Andrew was born, raised, schooled and lives in Encino. He surprises clients with his knowledge of homes, owners and floor plans on any given block. Fran has resided in Studio City, Sherman Oaks and, for the last seven years, Lake Sherwood in Westlake Village. He provides insight that clients would not be privy to otherwise.
What is your team known for?
Catering to our clients with a hands-on approach, along with our knowledge of the inventory, experience in problem-solving and negotiating skills. We like to think of ourselves as the Four Seasons of real estate and are backed by a dedicated licensed staff that includes a marketing director, social media manager, transaction coordinator and a paralegal administrator, giving us the ability to serve our clients’ wants and needs.
How do you support your community?
With each transaction, we donate a portion of our commission to various charities including the American Cancer Society, City of Hope and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
What would you like potential clients to know about you?
We don’t just assist clients in buying and selling homes. We cultivate relationships with our clients that go far beyond the closing of their properties—which is why we have a strong referral base and repeat business. We have developed a strong network of vendors and professionals, allowing us to provide our clients with the support they need prior to listing and well beyond the closing.
