Great service! We are a small and relatively new real estate development company but we are experienced. We needed someone to come out to a prospective property and just give us a foundation report, we did not need a whole building inspection. We were doing a walkthrough of a multi unit rental complex with two building and Randy was happy to come out and do a foundation only report at a very reasonable price. He was there before we got there and stayed longer than everyone to get a full work up on the foundation. We received a well written report within a reasonable time of the inspection. We will definitely use him again.

We just closed in on our first home through Brent. He guided us through a very lengthy and complicated short sale. We went with him to see a lot of homes and he was extremely patient with us and always pointed out the pros and cons of every home. When we finally decided on our current home it went from a regular sale to a short sale. We being first time buyers relied upon Brent's expertise and he helped us make the right decisions and as a result we saved a lot of money. Brent is very professional and he takes his role as a real estate agent very seriously. He is very knowledgeable about the real estate market and as we dealt with over a period of 9 months we came to know him as a very reliable and proactive person. A friend of ours recommended him to us and we recommended him to another friend. All three families were very happy with Brent and his expertise. We would most certainly recommend him unconditionally and definitely use his services, if and when we need them again.

Prepare a retrospective appraisal of my house I inherited at the time of my mother's death in 2004. For tax purposes I had to submit an appraisal to the State of CA to avoid having funds withheld. Several appraisers I contacted before Doug said they could not do it. Doug did the job quickly and efficiently, with a professional work product. I'm very happy.

I had a great experience selling my house thanks to Arman. Arman helped me sell my house above asking price with multiple offers to choose from. He is very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of my questions. Getting a hold of him was never an issue, and he was always on time to our meetings. I highly recommend contacting Arman for any real estate assistance.

Colleen was excellent at communicating with the seller and sending information back and forth. She was also very proactive in helping me chose a lender and staying up to date with the lender to make sure things progressed in a timely manner. She was very aware of the timing of all the deadlines throughout the process and kept things moving very efficiently. Colleen has been providing real estate service in the community for almost 20 years and is a great choice for any buyer or seller, private home or commercial properties. I have several other friends who have also used Colleen's services and were very satisfied.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a home inspection?

A home inspection is a visual inspection performed by a trained professional to determine the condition of a home’s main elements. The inspection usually takes several hours, during which the professional takes multiple photos and notes, tracking information for a final report. After the inspection, the pro will create a printed report, complete with photos and detailed information, summarizing the condition of the house. A home inspection is often used by potential home buyers prior to purchase to determine if there are larger issues (such as dry rot or a faulty foundation) that are not immediately visible to the untrained eye but that would cost a lot of money to resolve. Home inspections are also used by real estate agents and home sellers to address any concerns before putting a home on the market. Longtime homeowners can also schedule a home inspection to get a snapshot of their current home condition and identify any issues that need to be addressed. A home inspection is not a legal document that can be used for divorce or estate settlements, nor can it be used to secure loans or mortgages.

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.

How do you find a good home inspector?

A home inspection should tell you the true condition of a home. A competent home inspector closely inspects your home’s structure and foundation, looks for termites and signs of problems like mold, checks the wiring to ensure it’s in good condition, and investigates the HVAC system, among other items. To find a good home inspector, first research whether home inspection is licensed in your area; not all states require licensure.

If there is no regulatory body that licenses home inspection in your state, there are other ways to make sure you are hiring a trustworthy professional. Carefully look into the person’s reviews and ask for references. Ask if they are committed to continuing education, and whether they are active members in any reputable home inspector organizations. Some organizations that recognize and/or certify home inspectors are the American Society of Home Inspectors, National Association of Certified Home Inspectors, and American Home Inspectors Training. Don’t be shy about asking to see credentials and licensing.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
