Raquel was the fourth agent I interviewed and I signed with her on the spot. In that first meeting, she listened carefully to my objectives and needs, and followed up with a marketing plan that made sense, was responsive to the market, and leveraged technology. It was hands-off for me after that meeting. She brought her team of professionals (handymen, interior designers, stagers, photographers and videographers) then transformed my house in record time! She updated me on a daily basis and responded to my calls/texts immediately.
Raquel’s end game was perfect. She negotiated an excellent price that was well above the highest comps and continued being very proactive in keeping escrow on track.
I am 100% satisfied with Raquel’s work and would never hesitate to strongly recommend her to family and close friends.
My wife and I were introduced to Raquel by two neighbors in North Redondo who used her to sell their houses. We recognized the terrific job she did for them and jumped on the bandwagon after meeting with her. Raquel represented us in selling our townhouse in North Redondo and in buying our new home in Manhattan Beach.
In an incredibly competitive market where there were 10 to 12 strong offers, Raquel was critical in helping us win the bid to buy our new home using her creativity, communication skills, and persistence. We did not want to carry two mortgages, so Raquel then managed to get our existing house on the market and under contract in a week! Her marketing skills, contacts, and advice on home prep to sell exceeded our expectations on the price she achieved! In addition to all this, Raquel took the reigns to assist in getting our new home mortgage approved with our lender, while dealing with an unprofessional mortgage broker.
Raquel is an outstanding realtor with the experience, demeanor, and work ethic to make deals happen. In a stressful environment, Raquel is extremely even-keeled and goes above and beyond for her clients. Don't think twice and hire Raquel! I'm confident anyone who retains Raquel will not be disappointed!!
Raquel was recommended to us by 3 separate friends so, of course, we asked for her help finding a place in the South Bay. Given all the hype, we had high expectations, and boy did she deliver…and some!! Despite our contingency to sell, our very first offer was accepted and we were able to open escrow for both houses (sell/buy) on the same day! We used a different agent to sell our SF Valley home but when we ran into some snags, Raquel even helped us with navigating that sticky situation! She literally goes above and beyond her own duties and she does it all with patience, kindness and humility. My husband and I have definitely found our forever agent!
It is easy to find an agent, but it's NOT easy to find one who is this amazing - Raquel is a total Rockstar!! We just bought a new home two weeks ago and closed on the escrow for selling our current home today. When you are selling, she knows the best way to market your home to optimize the outcome so that you end up getting MULTIPLE top-dollar offers for your property. When you are buying, she knows how to position her clients so that they get their dream home even in a highly competitive process -- it takes much more than just having the highest price. She's incredibly organized, professional, and has a very strong work ethic. She's also super well-connected and an incredibly effective negotiator (for both buying and selling). It's been such a pleasure working with her I have SO many stories that show why she is good, and would be happy to chat if you have any questions and want a reference! So incredibly happy we had Raquel as our agent and now she's our agent for life (for both personal and investment properties)!
Raquel is amazing! My husband and my first home-buying experience was quick and relatively easy thanks to Raquel’s expertise! She knew how to find homes that fit what we wanted, and wrote competitive offers within our budget. We found our home, and had an offer accepted within 2 weeks of when we began our initial search! Raquel graciously answered our phone calls to discuss our questions and made sure we understood each step of the process, keeping us well-informed, and helping us move quickly when needed. Thank you so much, Raquel; a job well done! We definitely recommend Raquel and will return to her ourselves when we’re ready for our next home buying adventure!
