We're Back with a Wealth of Knowledge

by Mother & Son Team

We’re back!  One of the reasons we’re able to help as many families as we do is because we take our careers seriously…  Ask your doctor, or ask any licensed professional...  In order to keep their license, there must be some sort of continuing education.  Can you imagine if your doctor never learned what the latest advances in medicine were?  Or what if your doctor didn’t know what medications have recently come into existence that can benefit your life and health.  You probably wouldn’t want to go to that doctor right? 

That’s why we know that in order to serve our clientele best we need to invest in continuing education.  We just got back from one of the largest real estate summits of the year.  Tom Ferry runs one of Americas leading real estate companies and we brought home a wealth of knowledge from the 3 days of training we had.  The beauty of a summit like this is that we can network with other top producing real estate professionals and talk about the things that they are doing to best serve their communities and clients.  If you’ve kept up with us this past year, one of the things we are looking most to do is give back to the community and what better way to give than to learn what others are doing to give back to their communities. 

As always we’re here to serve you and we want to bring an overwhelming amount of value to you.  We care about all the residents in our market are of Downey, Bellflower, Lakewood, South Gate, Pico Rivera, and surrounding areas.  So give us a call so we can connect!

What Linda & Edgar had to say . . .

We are so excited for this wonderful family and their future. We upgraded them from a 3 bedroom home in Compton to a wonderful location in North Downey. Here's what Linda and Edgar had to say about working with us.

"If you find your self looking to sell and buy, this is the team to choose! We knew it would be tough going through this process but Maria and Chris did an amazing job making things go smooth and on point! Their entire team is great making things easy for you to understand! We will definitely use them again for our future purchase and will highly recommend them to our friends and family!"

Short Sales Still Exist - We can HELP with Relocation Assistance

by Chris Gonzales

Short sales are always a bitter sweet kind of a transaction.  When you look at Short Sales from one angle it’s tough to see that a family has to go through with the sale of their home because of some financial hardship in their family.  On the other hand, we as real estate professionals are able to help the family escape foreclosure and do our very best to help the family come out of this situation with hope at the end!  This particular short sale is one to remember for not only the buyer, but for the sellers as well…

It’s always our duty to negotiate the best terms for our seller when representing them in a short sale, and that not only means postponing foreclosure dates until we close, but also negotiating some type of assistance for the seller to move.  Let’s face it, if someone is in financial hardship and short selling their home, chances are they aren’t going to have any money to move into a new living situation.  So in this case we were able to negotiate $23,000 in relocation assistance to our seller.  No matter what the outcome we know it’s always a difficult situation to lose a home, but we do our very best to smooth out the process for those who are in hardship and it’s for that reason that we understand how important our job as real estate professionals really is…

So that’s half of the news.  Not only were we able to acquire $23,000 in relocation assistance to our seller, but we were able to negotiate over $10,000 in closing cost assistance for the buyer!  As mentioned above, these short sales are difficult for sellers but we don’t believe there could have been a better outcome in a difficult situation as this…

There are still many people out there who are suffering from financial hardship and may need to short sale their homes.  If you know of anyone please refer our services to them.  We know how to handle these types of transactions and you need strong negotiators who really know how to get you the assistance that you need on these types of sales…

#1 in our Company - Berkshire Hathaway Home Servives, California Properties, Mulhearn Group

by Southern Californias Top Producing Mother & Son Te

We couldn’t be more honored this last week at our company, quarterly awards breakfast.  We were blessed with the honor of receiving the #1 spot in our company for the first quarter of 2015 in a company that has over 1,500 real estate agents!  We are so thankful for all of our past clients who have put their trust in our ability to help them sell and buy their homes enabling us to achieve this great award in our company!

One of the reasons we believe we have been so successful in the real estate business is because we are a family run business.  Many people that we have served throughout our time in the business have told us that they connect with us, look up to us, and feel comfortable to work with us because of the relationship my mother, Maria and I have.  We’ve always had a strong bond throughout our lives and we believe that it’s because of that great Mother/Son relationship that we’ve had throughout the years that we’ve been able to help many families…

We’re excited to see what the rest of  2015 brings.  We are more focused than ever and we are always trying to stay on top of all the new ways to be most effective to better serve you.  We take pride in paying special attention to detail in everything we do because we want to give our clients the very best.   We know that when we give our clients the best, we are rewarded as the best in the business as we were this quarter…
