Robin and his management business managed our 16-unit apartment for several years, then we chose him as the realtor to sell the apartments. We live in another state. Robin was personable and professional at the same time. It would take pages to tell you how many good things he did for us, but the bottom line is that Robin and his managmement company is the best!

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.

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!!!

Mara Sweets, has done a excellent job. When she managed our rental properties we had no worries. The rent was collected on time and all the day to day occurrences were taken care of. She also did a monthly call to our tennants asking them if they had any concern or if there was anything that was in their apartment that needed to be fixed or replaced that we were not aware of. We would give Mara Sweets an A+. She is a dedicated, and hard working , getting the job done. Professionalism and excellance is what we have experienced when dealing with Mara Sweets.

Kathy assist us in finding a rental property during our transition to OC from the Bay area. Since am not local, this requires a lot more flexibility from Kathy's part to make do of whatever little time I have when in town. She was very professional, accomodating in showing me around Irvine; and finally helped me find an apartment from Irvine Company that exceeds most of my requirements. Definitely will work with Kathy again!

I met Nikki Sweet when I was working for Dorothy Dunn as her personal assistant, and she (Nikki) was Dorothy’s property manager for Dorothy’s 2 city blocks of property, which included 15 single family dwellings, 2 duplex’sand 1 apartment bldg. Not only was working with Nikki always a pleasure, I noticed that she had a great working relationship with ALL the Tenants and specifically all the vendors that worked on the property. From the handyman, to the plumber, to the gardener. Even the mailman knew Nikki by name. I had witnessed, on many occasions were Nikki would not only resolve a problem with efficiency and professionalism, but that should would go way above the normal call of duty and make sure that all parties were satisfied with whatever the outcome was. I also witnessed her obtaining that the best prices for whatever services were needed from vendors (plumber, exterminator, etc) with her vast knowledge of what is reasonable and her infallible negotiating skills. If I owned property and was in need of a property manager extraordinaire, I would not hesitate to contact Nikki Sweet.

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.
