Top Rated Redondo Beach Realtor
In this review driven world we live in, I feel very fortunate to have 102 Five Star reviews on Zillow of which 52 are from Redondo Beach buyers or sellers.
Additionally, based on Zillow's criteria they often rank me as the number one agent in Redondo Beach in at least one out of 4 categories: activity, recent sales, local reviews or active listings. Of course being number one in active listings may not be a good thing because most properly priced and marketed Redondo Beach real estate listings will be in escrow very quickly.
Beyond reviews, what makes a Realtor a top agent in any market?
I think it is experience in and knowledge of the local market. Without the experience of having sold a lot of homes over a number of years in different market conditions, it would be virtually impossible to know how to price and market a listing or how to get a good deal for a buyer.
Additionally, top agents know the difference in various floor plans, builders, schools, and even which side of the street to buy on. (Want a garden in your backyard - avoid the north side of any street in 90278.)
In the case of Redondo Beach, I have published a blog site 90278RealEstate.com for a number of years that talks extensively about the local market.
And then it just comes down to service, service, service.
My most recent review came from my recent sale, representing the buyer, 1931 Gates Ave Unit B which is a 2 on a lot townhouse on a great block in North Redondo Beach.
This home has a traditional floor plan with all 3 bedrooms upstairs - unlike the 3 on a lots that have 2 down and 1 up.
The floor plan also featured a formal living room with a fireplace and then a den with sliding glass doors that open to the yard. In addition to the formal dining area, the kitchen also had a nook for eating in.
Right now, there are many great deals on 3 bedroom 2 on a lots because a lot of buyers are looking for 4 bedroom properties.
This property, which is 2120 Sq Ft is listed as “attached” but the only common walls were found at the garage. So no common living walls. It closed escrow for $999,000 and after some new floor coverings and painting, it will look a whole lot better than when my client and I first walked into it.
So with that lead in, here’s what my client was nice enough to post on my Zillow profile:
