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.

I called Silvia to notarize some documents for my elderly father. She met me at my father's care home. She was on time (actually early), professional and kind. I highly recommend Silvia if you are in need of a mobile notary and I will use her services anytime I need anything notarized!

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!

I was not looking forward to buying new house since our first experience was horrible and we ended up buying a condo that needed a lot more work then we anticipated. When I found out I was pregnant with twins we quickly realized our 2 bedroom condo was not going to work anymore. We interviewed over 7 realtors before we decided on Michelle and the biggest reason we picked her was because she seemed to be methodological in her approach. Most agents wanted to sell our condo for more than Michelle suggested we sell for and when we asked why she wanted to list it so low she explained her process and the market in a way that just sounded perfect. Sure enough our condo sold for more than we thought we would get all because of the way she priced it. I feel like most agents just shoot in the dark and hope they hit something but Michelle has a method to her madness that I really really liked. She deserves 10 stars for her work with us.

I've used Enterprise Property Mgmnt now for about 6 months. Everything has been managed very professionally. My agent, Paula Klingman, has been very responsive and responsible. I'm a long distance landlord...and in my absence I very much appreciate the care and attention to my property and my renter.

We have worked with Kyle for several years and have been extremely pleased with the partnership. He listed rental property for us, represented us on a home purchase and is now providing us with property management services. Kyle is that rare breed of realtor that listens carefully to your requirements and responds quickly with multiple options that allow the homebuyer to quickly zero in on the best fit. As a listing agent for rental property he has placed tenants immediately, ensuring property vacancy is minimized. As a property manager, we have found his services to be invaluable. He is very well connected to a variety of service providers that give us immediate responses to resolve any issues that may occur. Kyle has a depth of expertise in the real estate industry that we have relied on to make sound financial decisions for buying/selling/renting and property improvements. He is a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend him.

One of the best agents I have ever worked with!!! DJ helped me get in touch with the perfect lender to assist my mom with refinancing her home. My mother seen a major increase in her mortgage payment and screamed for help. DJ provided us with some of the best Direct Lenders in the real estates business and we were able to get my mothers mortgage payment down from $2,300 to $1,400!!! In addition to that, my brother moved from the state of Florida to California and wanted to buy a condo! He found my brother a condo I a matter of 6 days. And then....AND THEN..we closed in 15 days! I cant thank him enough for all he has done for me and my family! DJ and his Vantage Realty Team went above and beyond and will always be my realtor...PERIOD!!!

Mike Weber helped me buy my first home this year. He helped me by sharing his knowledge and experience in a way that gave me the power to make informed buying decisions. His enthusiasm motivated me and made the experience fun and exciting. Mike worked with the seller in a professional manner and got me a price well below the asking price. Mike also connected me with an awesome lender that was professional, friendly, and timely in getting my loan processed. You will not regret working with the Weber Real Estate Team for buying or selling a home.

    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 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'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 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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
