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.

    Working with Kelli W. was by far the best experience I've had while purchasing real estate. She has experience in property management and knows the ins and outs of luxury living. I highly recommend working with Kelli! First time home buyer? No worries! She was able to break things down so the process made sense and went smoothly. Timely follow up, and A+ listings. Super happy with my new home. I hope to buy many more investment properties here in the near future, and I will undoubtedly have Kelli help me out.

    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.

    Megan over at Three Lagoons Realty is a rock star. I shopped around for different Real Estate agencies and when I finally met with Megan it was an easy decision. Her knowledge about the market and overall attention to detail was amazing. If you are looking to buy or sell a home go with Three Lagoons Realty and you will never regret your decision. 5 STARS across the board. I will definitely use Megan for the sale and purchase of my next home.

    Mr. Mattson was the best agent I have ever worked with, hands down. I have moved around a lot, but he's the first who I felt like actually listened to what I wanted and helped me achieve it rather than pushing me to settle for something I wasn't completely sold on. Very personable and respectful and wonderful to work with. It was a pleasure and he is the only one I will work with in the future if I ever need his help again.

      I had come to a point in time where it was time for me to make the move and begin my search for a house that would be the beginning of my real estate future. I was nervous, cautious and had no idea what I wanted. In order to make an informed decision, I wanted to find somebody who I could work with that would work with me. I found Jennifer through word of mouth and decided to contact her as she already had a great reputation for her sincerity and professionalism in her work. As soon as we met, we hit it off. She was very open to all of my concerns and she was great about giving me a basic introduction to all of the different things I needed to be prepared for in my search for a home that would be right for me. The more questions I asked, the more confidence she gave me as somebody who I could count on to help me. We went over everything and she was able to use her knowledge and resources to help me make an educated and confident decision. I would recommend Jennifer to anybody who is looking for a supportive, knowledgeable and professional real estate agent to help them make one of the most important decisions they will make in their lives, buying 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'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.
