Frank was punctual, communicates well, explained the easily fixed items versus the more complicated repairs/potential problems. He provided his report for myself and both real estate agents. He even climbed into a very very small secondary attic. Wow! Definitely would recommend!

My wife and I were very fortunate and blessed to have Chris as our agent. Being that this was our first foray into real estate (we had always rented before), we weren't sure what we were getting ourselves into. We had an idea and a vision of a home of where our family would be able to grow into but had no idea how to set everything in motion. Enter: Chris. He was referred to us by a mutual friend and was engaged from the very beginning. He listened to our wants and needs (e.g., location, schooling, price, amenities, etc.) and only showed us listings that matched our criteria. We immediately felt we were in good hands. He's everything you want in an agent: knowledgeable, amicable, straight-forward, and above all else, patient. We started this entire process in March. Chris met up with us nearly every week to take us to view houses up and down the OC. We went to Brea, Fullerton, Irvine, Foothill Ranch, Lake Forest, and Tustin. Each house selected based on our preferences. We were, however, on the picky side. Nothing really wow'd us. And Chris understood. He told us that it is has to be the right home and that this kind of stuff takes time. So he persisted with us for nearly five long months. We found our dream home in July and closed on our home in mid-August. Chris was there every step of the way providing helpful insight and guidance throughout the home-purchasing process. He was there to advise us through negotiations, contract signing, and closing. He was available around the clock to answer our questions on disclosures and other important paperwork. He walked us through timelines and key deliverables so we never missed a deadline. Even now, two months removed from the closing date, I still pester him with questions and emails about home ownership and he responds with clear answers and helpful advice. Chris will take care of his clients before, during, and after the entire process. Something I truly appreciate. TL:DR: Chris makes the home-purchasing process as easy and seamless as possible. I would say we had a fairly smooth escrow process in large part because Chris was very proactive in his approach. He's smart and knows all the ins and outs of real estate. If you want an agent that'll work for you and make sure you're happy with your home, go with Chris. You won't regret it.

I hired Peter to sell my home in June of 2015. Peter maintained a professional attitude and provided constant communication to make sure the process went smoothly. I haven't had a real estate transaction that was without hiccups. Peter's professionalism is unrivaled. Thank you Pete for the great experienced, it was a huge win-win.

I have to say, my experience with PrimeX was amazing! I have been in the real estate business for over 25 years and I have never seen a termite company get out to an appointment so fast, on time and deliver the report before I even got back to my office! I rely on fast, honest service and that's exactly what i got it! Thank you Giovanni, I look forward to doing business with you in the future!

So very thankful Sara stopped by the house to see if we were interested in selling. She was very professional from the start and we felt like she addressed everything in a prompt manner. Selling the home I grew up in was a difficult process but she was there to provide support every step of he way. Living out of state brought some challenges but she stepped in as needed. If you are thinking of buying or selling, she’s your agent!

Appraisal Time is the way to go. Brian Smith is awesome! He did the appraisal for the house I currently own. If it wasn't for him and his contacts in real estate, I wouldn't have this house. He took care of me when it was needed and was on time. I would highly recommend his services.

    We met Cameron at an open house nearly 2 years ago. He was incredibly friendly and we felt very comfortable speaking with him. He then started helping us find homes and condos in West Los Angeles. His passion for and knowledge of LA real estate were both very obvious. Cameron was never pushy or salesy. He genuinely wanted us to find the right property for us and not rush into things. Eventually we found the right property and he helped us by offering guidance on inspections and negotiation. I would highly recommend Cameron to both a seller and a buyer. Thanks again!

    "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."

He was always just a phone call or email away, and I really appreciated the promptness with which he responded to all of my questions.

    Jonathon Schwartz was referred to me by a neighbor when they learned I wanted to find tenants to lease my house. Jonathan contacted me explained the process, and then let me choose when to begin this process of renting my home. From the beginning, Jonathan was eloquent in his presentation and was very pleasant and patient. His calm way of communicating, including his wonderful voice, calmed this anxious senior, leaving her home after 37 years. He was charming, and very much so with those people who came to see the house. He never pressured anyone and he gave the sense of knowing everything needed to complete the process. He found wonderful tenants for me in the first month and I'm very grateful for this and how it was done. Debra Levoy

    This team is really impressive in their knowledge of investment and development. They were always available and always said it how it was. If your looking for an agent to sugarcoat everything then these aren’t your brokers, but if you want someone who is trustworthy and persistent, these are your brokers. Overall great experience and will definitely work with Roy and Arin again.

    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 should be included in a home inspection?

    A complete home inspection involves a visual investigation of all major elements that make up your home. A home inspection is a vital part of buying or selling a home to ensure you’re not accidentally buying a termite-infested home or one with major structural defects. Paying for an inspection before purchasing a home can save you a lot of money in the long run. The national average home inspection cost is $310, with prices ranging higher or lower based on your location and the square footage of your home. After performing a walk-through inspection, the pro should provide you a printed report — complete with photos and recommendations — detailing what’s in good condition, what would benefit from minor repairs, and what needs immediate attention. Home inspection pros know how to spot trouble areas, but they’re not licensed contractors, electricians or plumbers, so they may suggest you hire a licensed pro to address specific problems. Here are the main components that a home inspection covers:

    • Home structure
      • Foundation, grading and drainage, roof covering, roof structure, interior and exterior attic walls, ceilings and floors, interior and exterior doors, windows, stairways, fireplace and chimney, porches, balconies, decks, attached carports, and crawl space.
    • Electrical
      • HVAC system, heating equipment, cooling equipment, ductwork and vents, fixtures and switches, branch circuits, receptacles, service entrance and panels.
    • Plumbing
      • Water heater and equipment, drains, waste systems, vents, and plumbing fixtures.
    • Appliances
      • Garage door openers, garbage disposal, dishwasher, exhaust range, range hood, bathroom exhaust fans, cooktop, oven and microwave.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
