“She's the best.”

Monica is the best. She helped us through the harrowing process of buying our first home. It was her expertise that suggested we write a back-up offer on a home -- which ending up being OUR home in the end. She was always encouraging and smart and gave us great insight into where to buy, local trends, etc... She's the best. And it took us forever to find a home, but she didn't give up until she found us the perfect place. We love our home but mostly our neighborhood, which I wouldn't have considered except for the fact that Monica encouraged us to look there and it paid off! I will be honest, most agents are not as sharp as Monica. She's really one of a kind. I love her.

“Our home has shot up about 40% in value”

Being a first time buyer in Los Angeles we were extremely cautious to make sure we weren't making a mistake. Monica was extremely adept at showing us the right homes that fit in our criteria and also showing us how we could expand our search and afford the best house we could get. She stuck with us for about a year and now we live in a great neighborhood in a home that has shot up about 40% in value in the past 5 years.

My goal is to always find the perfect home that suits the needs of my clients no matter what budget or area in California.  For me it's about seeing my clients light up when they find the one...

“Everything we wanted and more.”

I have used Monica for two purchases (one was my first) in 2009 and 2014 and one sale (in 2014), and she is fantastic. She is extremely responsive, personable and takes lots of time to walk through all of the intricacies of the buying / sale process. I highly recommend her to all of my friends and family, and she has become my personal go-to.

"She was responsive to my every need"

I recently purchased a condo with Monica. I was re-locating from northern California to southern California, so the process was a bit complicated. She was knowledgeable and professional throughout every stage. I have no doubt that she made the endeavor much easier for me.

Buying and selling is never an easy process, and sometimes gets very emotional. She was responsive to my every need in a calm and patient way. I would highly recommend her.

“An incredibly attentive agent”

I have worked with Monica to find a rental and now a home to buy.  Both times she has been an incredibly attentive agent.  She was constantly staying on top of what came on the market and sending me what best fit my criteria right away, She responded to my calls and emails promptly and was flexible when I decided to change neighborhoods.  Throughout the entire process, Monica was has incredibly helpful.  I highly recommend her.

"Monica could not have been more helpful, patient, or kind."

We asked Monica to help us find a new home. Monica could not have been more helpful, patient, or kind. She worked with us to truly understand what we wanted. Helped us look at homes for a VERY long time and did not forget that we were in the market looking for the right home. When we finally narrowed down our neighborhood, she helped us to find things that were not on the market officially yet.

When it came to the negotiation, Monica was helpful in identifying great best practices, like asking for everything attached to the walls. She did a good job of explaining our position and also facilitating a strong negotiation. She was also instrumental in facilitating a quick close.
