I partnered with Nobel Real Estate Services two years ago and have not regretted a single moment. I interviewed several property managers in preparation for my first experience as a landlord. I was anxious about finding good tenants QUICKLY. I also wanted to work with a property manager who didn't cut corners. I selected Dennis Rosen because of his professional integrity and experience. Dennis communicates clearly and professionally, he is responsive and punctual, and he is service-oriented (for both tenant and landlord). For example, he explained the overall process and how Nobel ensures funds are deposited prior to the first of each month. (My anxiety started to subside.) But more importantly, Dennis shared his experience, insights, and words of wisdom. He explained various warranty and service options for the appliances washer/dryer/refrigerator/microwave/etc. as part of the rental agreement. I also remember Dennis saying that there is always a "settle in period" when tenants may have a flurry of requests. Sure enough, he was right. The tenants communicated primarily with Dennis and he was prompt and responsive in communicating with me and addressing their requests/issues. (Anxiety dropped again.) Overall, I have had a very positive experience. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Dennis Rosen and Nobel Prop Mgt.

As someone in the real estate industry, I know how hard it can be to find a quality property manager. I was referred to RMG from a fellow Realtor. RMG will return your calls promptly and will make you feel valued. Most companies these days treat you like a number but RMG makes you feel like a priority.

Mark is a great real estate agent. He helped me sort through and find exactly what I was looking for, which was very helpful since I was not familiar with the San Diego market. He was great with the bidding and contract process and I am very happy with the condo I purchased. Mark is friendly, professional, and always responsive.

I have been going to college for a couple of years now, and I finally felt like it was time to get my own apartment. To be honest, I was really scared and nervous because getting my first apartment especially alone was a big step in my life. I had no idea what to do, or where to start looking, so I began to contact some realty companies, a lot of them were sketchy and rude and after a lot of looking I found EZ realty. They changed my whole perspective on the apartment finding process, by guiding me through each step and helping me find the best apartment, with in my price range and liking. I now have my first apartment through EZ realty and I will make sure when I get my first house it will also be through them. They treated me like they actually cared about my comfort, and not just about the money and that is a very rare trait amongst real estate company.

When purchasing my home, David negotiated an amazing deal even though there were several other bids and my offer wasn't the highest. I felt confident in his skills, knowledge & market expertise. David secured the property for me seamlessly. When it came time to hire a manager for another property, I didn't hesitate to call David. He quickly found the right tenant & skillfully handled the rental agreement. He's very knowledgable about property legalities & even secured a higher rental rate. David is professional & very easy to work with. I highly recommend him.

My husband and I hired Mark to work as our property manager. We had limited time to get things in order. Mark came in with a positive attitude and put things in motion almost instantly. He has kept us in the loop with everything he's doing. He is a straight shooter. My family appreciates that!

Mary Doyle from Rock Solid has been our families realtor for years. She bought both my son and daughter their first homes. Mary also sold our family home and my sons home. We found her knowledgeable, fast and efficient in getting the job done. She went above and beyond what she needed to do to help sell our home. Mary found people to help us make needed repairs and even got on the ladder herself to help paint some house trim that the painters had missed. You wont find a more dedicated realtor than Mary. We recommend her to everyone.

    Randy's background in appraisals, loans and real estate makes he an ideal realtor for buyers and/or sellers. That makes him a True Triple Threat. Not only did he put up with ever changing criteria, but he did so with professionalism and sensibility. I appreciate his no pressure style, and especially his insight on first-time home buyer programs. Randy had my back throughout the experience and was easy to reach.

    I chose to work in the real estate industry so that I could assist families and individuals in reaching their American dream of homeownership. However, after entering the industry, I enjoyed it so much that I decided to make a career in real estate. There are not many jobs available where one can earn a livelihood while enjoying every moment of his/her work activity. Additionally, I enjoy working with and assisting people. I always aspire to be the very best at what I do. I will have no limits as I continue to set and reach my goals and objectives while maintaining a balance between work and personal activities.

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
