If you are looking for a listing agent, look no further. Scott and Janice are the way to go. Not only did they manage to sell our condo for a record price in less than two weeks, they couldn't have made the process any easier, and you couldn't find two more pleasant people to work with. From the start, Scott was extremely responsive and detail-oriented. It is baffling to me how few people in business these days take the time to understand your questions and actually answer them. Scott does. All of the questions. Every time. And as first-time sellers, we had a lots of questions. In a seemingly effortless way, he helped us navigate the process from start to finish, explaining along the way whatever we didn't understand. The property we sold was occupied by tenants, and we live 45 minutes away. Scott and Janice were there for us whenever we couldn't be, which was a lot of the time. During escrow, they handled all the appointments with inspector, appraiser, retrofitter, handyman, you name it. They are very hands-on and organized, so there were no last-minute surprises in the days leading up to escrow closing. They had been so on top of things from the very beginning, we could always feel that we were ahead of the game. This made for a very low-stress sale for us. Scott and Janice worked around everyone's schedules with patience and grace, were always polite to everyone involved and never applied any pressure. As a former HOA board member, I've had to deal with listing agents before and let me tell you, you cannot take that for granted. Janice's warmth and enthusiasm paired with Scott's charm and keen business sense truly make for a winning combination. It was as if we had picked two trusted friends to handle the transaction for us, friends who just happened to be extremely knowledgeable about real estate. Throughout the process, we felt that they had our best interest at heart. You simply cannot put a price on that kind of peace of mind. You will not regret it if you choose them to represent you.
My partner and I were just starting our search for our first home together when I was lucky enough to meet Alexis at a meet and greet at WeWork in Santa Monica. My partner and I didn't know where to start! We were so intimidated by the process of buying our first home, but Alexis was instrumental in guiding us through the whole process. I was immediately impressed by Alexis's professionalism and knowledge of the real estate industry in Los Angeles. We worked with her from the very first step of getting pre-approved through closing, on our very first home. We were all over the place when we first met Alexis, we wanted to look at condos, townhouses, and single-family homes from the Mar Vista to Culver to West Adams. Alexis immediately felt like a best friend who was looking out for our best interests and making sure we found a home we loved. She listened to what we were looking for, learned about us and our family so she could find the perfect match for our new home. Once we had an offer accepted, we spoke with Alexis almost daily, we were little bundles of stress the whole time. We'd start off each call totally intimidated and confused, but Alexis walked us through every detail, helped give us perspective, answered every question, and really made us feel like we had someone on our side. When you work with Alexis, you also get the rest of her team's support too everyone at P+H was super knowledgeable and friendly and jumped in with advice when we needed them. Buying your first home is such a special part of your life, and we're so grateful to Alexis for helping us find the perfect match for our family. We'll be working with them again when it's time for us to find another home, and we highly recommend them to anyone looking for their next home.
I wanted to write an update to my initial review as we just utilized "Homes by Price + Hou" to sell our town home that we purchased over 4 years ago, when I wrote my first review. This time around, we worked primarily with Janice and Alexis, but when working with Homes by Price + Hou, it really is a team effort. We listed our home at the beginning of the year after meeting with the team and discussing the strategy for putting our town home on the market. They were very thorough in their research of the area and communicative with the various strategies that we could employ in order to sell our town home quickly and for a good price. Once we were all in alignment, they put the plan into action and before we knew it, we had multiple offers in a week. And if you looked at the date of when this review was left, you will deduce that the entire process, from listing to closing, took just over one month. A huge success that yes, is evidence of selling at the right time, but also is evidence of how important it is to have a professional team with an effective gameplan. Going into either buying a home or selling, you know it is going to be a stressful time, so why not have a team of experts on board that will make the process as stress-free as possible? We came back to use Homes by Price + Hou not only because of their professionalism, detailed knowledge of the market and calculated approach....but also because the entire team is full of really nice and genuine people. Homes by Price + Hou are great to work with, they come with my highest recommendation and we will not hesitate to use them in the future.
I was in Los Angeles from out of state in order to deal with family medical and financial issues, one of which was the sale of my mother's house. I had never bought or sold a home before and I needed a lot of explaining and handholding. They listened to me and took the time to understand my situation and concerns. At the time, I was feeling overwhelmed with family issues. I was also cognizant of needing to return home before the sale was completed. I needed a one-stop, "turnkey" solution, and that's what they delivered. It took considerable pressure off my shoulders to be able to leave the sale of the house in their capable hands. Scott and Janice went out of their way to explain the sale process, to let me know what to expect, and to shepherd me through the negotiations, decision points and paperwork. There were some complications along the way and they took extra care to advise me on my options and to develop creative solutions. They even helped with arranging contractors for required repairs, keeping in mind my budget and timeline concerns. To sum it all up, Scott and Janice gave me peace of mind during a very stressful time. I couldn't have gotten through it without their caring and competent assistance.
Scott and Janice are as good as it gets. A year and a half ago, Scott sold my condo for well above our list price and then helped me purchase another house at a great price. So, a few months ago when I decided to upgrade he was the first person I called. Once again he got me multiple offers and the house sold well above asking. But that's not even the best part. Amazingly, Scott and Janice and the rest of their team are also a just really great, down to earth people. The customer service they provide simply can't be beat. Janice and the rest of the team are there to offer opinions, expertise, and assistance along the way, and both Janice and Scott are on hand to help anytime and every time I call. Somehow they make it feel like I'm their only client. And they have proven time and again that they have my best interest in mind. For example, they have always been quick to think through all of the downsides of each transaction and they automatically point those out for me so that I can make a well-informed decision when I find something I like. Anyway, I just can't say enough about how good they are as both a seller's and a buyer's agent. Their real estate expertise and customer service are truly the best in the business.
Scott and Janice were incredible listing agents! I needed to sell my mother's house in Santa Monica and I live on the other side of the country. Scott gave great advice on how to best prep the house for sale (light repairs, repaint the interior, power-wash the exterior) and helped stage with our own furniture. He quickly brought in contractors to give estimates and oversaw all the work, including house cleaning and staging, all while I was out of town! As he promised the work was done very quickly and the house was soon ready to go on the market and looked great. Scott walked us through our options in setting the asking price, brought in 5 bids, walked us through the counter-bidding decisions, and the end result was a great price from a strong buyer. Scott was a great communicator through the whole process, very easy, forthright, and reassuring to work with. I would recommend him to anyone thinking about putting their house on the market.
I feel like I won the Realtor lottery by finding Scott & Janice. I am an experienced real estate investor and have bought and sold many properties through the years. When it came time to sell my townhouse in Santa Monica I interviewed several agents. Scott & Janice really stood out from the pack. Their plan on selling and marketing my townhouse was well thought out and highly effective. I signed the listing agreement, gave them a set of keys and they took over from there. It was great. Their attention to detail was impeccable, were quick to answer my questions and they provided intelligent advice. They made my townhouse look amazing and generated several offers - all over the asking price. Scott & Janice are savvy, sharp, sophisticated and were an enjoyable team to work with. Will I use Scott & Janice again, 100% yes.
We were referred to Janice and Scott through friends and we are so happy that we had their team when we bought our first place recently. They were so incredibly patient with us and were extremely professional and handled everything with the utmost care. They had to deal with a handoff during our search and it was seamless. This team turned what could have been a very frustrating process into something that was manageable and as low stress as these things can be. They were always available, very responsive, and focused on our priorities. The integrity with which this team works is unparalleled. We would highly recommend them and will certainly look to them for any future transactions.
Mark Mendez and his team helped my husband and I buy our first home with so much care and detail. He made the entire process so much more approachable and less worrisome. Mark was available day and night to answer our questions and concerns (no matter how small) along each step of the way. We couldn't have asked for a more attentive agent and we truly felt that he had our best interest in mind throughout. If you are looking for a wonderful realtor, this is your agent! We'll be recommending Mark's services to all of our friends and family. Thank you Mark for making our dream of owning a home a reality.
Scott, Janice and their team are incredible. Scott had our condo listed within a week of our contacting him. He was very thorough and organized in getting the place in shape for the open houses. He priced the condo perfectly. We had multiple offers and were very satisfied and surprised with the result. We closed the sale 48 days after our initial meeting with Scott. That was really quick and saved us a lot of worry, anticipation and money! We really liked working with Scott and Janice. They are genuinely nice and totally honest. We were so lucky to find them.
