Relief, that is what I felt when we started working with the Morenos. We had a Silverlake house to sell–a beautiful home, but on a challenging street–and we were looking to buy in Los Feliz. We needed our Silverlake home to sell quickly, and we needed advice on what to do to the house in order to maximize its appeal. George and Eileen spent an entire afternoon with us, explaining where the housing market stood, how they planned to market our home, and what we needed to do to it going forward. Their eye for detail, and for what needed freshening and fixing was unerring. They recommended a reliable and speedy contractor whose crew did a terrific job, and at a reasonable cost. Our house looked gorgeous.
Once the offers on our house started coming in–and we had something like eight offers in four days–we understood just how savvy their marketing strategy had been. We also came to realize just how important it is having experienced realtors handling the sale of your house. Multiple offers are, of course, what every seller craves, but figuring out which offer really is the best can be tricky. George and Eileen have the sorts of connections and the experience that enables them to give sound advice. And throughout, they maintain an almost Zen-like calm, which ratchets down one’s own anxiety considerably. In the end, our home sold for $35,000 more than its asking price, and to a solid buyer.
But here’s the thing, if the Morenos were simply super agents, I would not be writing this letter. They are terrific people. It’s not just that they have integrity, or that they look out for your interests, although they do. It’s that they are curious about the larger world, open to other points of view, able conversationalists, and fun. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
