After interviewing several others for the management of my 6 unit building which is in LA and I live in Santa Barbara, I decided on Kyle Douvros. Met with him and he is young, but extremely professional, eager and has the backing of his Dad's real estate company of 30 years. So time will tell, but it is starting out just the way I want it to be.

Lisa has been our real estate agent for our last few times. Lisa is knowledgeable, understanding, honest, fun and extremely thorough. On our most recent transaction, we relocated before our home went on the market. We were confident from previous experience that Lisa would take care of everything and communicate throughout the process. We highly recommend Lisa!

Ginger was amazing! She was consistently on top of each portion of the home sale/new purchase process. She was so wonderful to work with from beginning to close. Her friendly dimeanor and extensive knowledge made her the perfect fit for someone such as myself, with little experince with buying/selling a home. Ginger made me feel like more than just another client in the vast real estate market, but more like a trusted friend. I have, and will continue to recommend her to everyone! Kimberly Stetler, CPT

I am so impressed with the property management connection, especially The president Justin Schaller. He manages my ocean front condo and has placed the best tenant and handles everything for me so I can focus on my life and not worry about my property! He is very thorough and professional, he goes above and beyond to do the job right. He covers everything from A to Z and I will be entrusting my property to his care for years to come. And when I’m ready to sell, I will definitely use Justin as my real estate agent. He makes everything efficient and stress free. He is also very kind and easy to work with. I highly recommend him for all real estate needs! Thank you Justin!

"Maria listed our home and helped getting it sold for the amount we wanted and in a short time as we were in escrow with another home. She helped made the transition effortless and her professionalism was impeccable. I gladly recommend Maria, she is an excellent real estate agent and I will definitely call her again for any of my future Real Estate needs. Sold a Single Family home for approximately $800 K in Sherman Oaks, CA."

Kevin has managed three of my properties for over five years and has always placed well qualified tenants in each of my properties. Most of my properties have had long term tenants and have never been vacant for more than 20 days. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my rental business.

If you need anything related to Real Estate. Selling. Buying. Inquiries. Window Shopping. Whatever you want, when it comes to Real Estate, The Hanover Group is there. I loved working with Vianey when I bought my house. She was patient and understanding of my naivete. I loved working Raoul when I sold my house. Not only did it sell quickly, but way over the asking price. If you are in SoCal and need anything to do with real estate, The Hanover Group should be your first call. Even though I am out of state, if I ever return to SoCal, The Hanover Group will be my first call to find me a residence.

Ron was a pleasure to work with while he researched tenants to place in my Pomona rental. He always returned calls or emails quickly and answered all my questions. The official real estate forms and disclosures he provided for our lease contract were excellent, and I will definitely call him next time I have a vacancy. Thank you!

I reached out to Tom Clary with some very specific criteria for my first home purchase and he not only accepted the challenge but he did it with a smile throughout the entire process. Tom is very knowledgable, trustworthy, & patient. Over the course of several months, we looked at many condos, townhouses, & single family homes. As a mater of fact, we put offers in on many places and were countered many times but for one reason or another (some by my choice & some by the seller's choice) we never entered escrow on any of them. That was until we found my ideal single family home. Tom was quick to run the comps, talk to the listing agent, get my offer in, and to get my loan broker to put a call into the listing agent letting them know what I bring to the table. Tom also helped negotiate a fair 'credit for the needed repairs'. Tom could not have made my first home buying experience more enjoyable and was always more than willing to share his thoughts/concerns on potential properties with me. He was available day & night and even on weekends. He was quick to return calls, emails, and text messages. He also did a great job with staying in touch with my loan broker. If you are looking for a solid hard working & knowledgable realtor, I would definitely suggest that you reach out to Tom and interview him to see if you find him to be a good fit as I did!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a real estate agent do?

Real estate agents help their clients buy, sell, and rent commercial and residential properties. There are also real estate agents that sell industrial and agricultural real estate, but the majority sell residential properties. To become a real estate agent, you must be at least 18 years old, successfully complete real estate courses, and pass a real estate exam. Be sure to check for any required licensing, too. Often real estate agents will earn 5 percent to 6 percent of the total home sale price for their work in representing their client. Typically this commission is split equally between the buyer’s agent and the seller’s agent. Here is an overview of what a real estate agent does, according to the United States Department of Labor:

  • Represent clients who are looking to buy, sell and rent properties.
  • Stay knowledgeable about regional real estate prices, mortgages, market conditions and related information, and advise clients accordingly.  
  • Determine competitive market prices by comparing properties.
  • Create and publicize lists of properties for sale, including details such as location and features.
  • Market properties through advertisements, open houses and listing services.
  • Show prospective buyers or renters properties.
  • Present purchase offers to sellers for consideration.
  • Mediate negotiations between buyer and seller.
  • Ensure that all terms of purchase contracts are met.
  • Prepare documents, such as loyalty contracts, purchase agreements and deeds.

What's the difference between a real estate broker and an agent?

Real estate agents and real estate brokers both help clients buy, sell, and rent residential and commercial properties. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, real estate brokers are licensed to manage their own real estate businesses. Real estate agents cannot have their own real estate office and must work under a broker. Real estate brokers often have real estate firms and employ real estate agents. Those real estate agents may be employees of the firm, or they may work on contract and earn part of any commission they bring into the firm.

If you are a homeowner ready to sell or a buyer in the market for a new home, either a real estate broker or a real estate agent can help you achieve your goal. What is more important than their title is their track record and client success stories. When interviewing real estate agents or brokers to help you buy or sell a home, ask about their recent sales history as compared with the original listing prices. If you’re selling a home, ask how they would market your home and what price they would list it at. Whether you hire an agent or broker, you want a professional who will have your best interests at heart.

What should you look for in a real estate agent?

When you’re hiring a real estate agent you want to find a qualified pro who can negotiate the best deal for your home — whether you’re buying or selling. Reading reviews will help you weed out obvious bad operators; you want to work with someone who treats their clients with fairness and respect. That said, you also want someone who can play hardball and maximize your real estate deal. Ask for references from recent clients, and be sure to call them.

Experts encourage you to interview more than one prospective real estate agent before hiring. A home sale or home purchase is a big deal — sometimes the biggest deal in a person’s life — and you want to find an agent who will work hard for you. In today’s market, having a real estate agent who is social media savvy and has an attractive online presence is critical. Ask the agent how they plan to market your house. Review their listings, and ask yourself if they have professional photos with homes that are professionally staged. If the answer is no, they might not have the marketing savvy you’re looking for. Ask what price they would list your house at and why. Pay attention to how they communicate with you during your initial interviewing phase. Are they too busy to respond for several days? Are they clear and helpful? This information is a clue to how they’ll engage during the entire process.

What do real estate agents charge?

Real estate agents typically don’t charge a set rate to their clients, but rather earn a commission on the price of the final home sale. In traditional real estate, there is a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent. The two agents receive 5 percent to 6 percent of the final home sale price and split it evenly, meaning they each earn roughly 2.5 percent to 3 percent of the total home sale. If you are a home seller, you may have fees associated with the sale that are above and beyond the commission the agents earn. The real estate agent may have you pay marketing fees, MLS fees, early cancellation fees, or more. Always ask pricing details before signing a contract so you clearly understand your financial obligations. Here are some of the average (and common) costs that can arise when selling a home:

  • Home inspection: $200-$350 or more, depending on region.
  • Home appraisal: $250-$400 or more, depending on region.
  • Professional real estate photography: $275-$550 or more, depending on photographer, square footage of house, and special requests like sunset shots.
  • Closing costs: Often split between the seller and buyer. An average range for the buyer to pay is between 3 percent and 4 percent, with the seller paying a lower fee at 1 percent to 3 percent of the home’s price.
